True Bloods season 3 cast poster signed rare autographOh, I really want to stay in bed… sigh… However, M’Lou really wants to Get Around today, so off we go. I have to say, I really wanted to avoid going out. I even texted Megan telling her I was taking a pass today. But here I am in the car and heading over the hill to Hollywood to be a part of the True Blood insanity. Sigh… The premiere for the hit HBO show is today, and Megan, M’Lou and I all have our cast posters to finish. I also have another True Blood poster I’ve been working on for a while, soooooo wish me luck!

3:34 p.m. – M’Lou just texted me she is only going to come for the way out. Sigh… I really feel the same way, but I just know if I don’t come then I’ll regret it. So, here I am. Megan is already here, and she seems just as cranky as I am.

3:42 p.m. – I hate being cranky and getting around. Sigh… It’s hot and there are a lot of people already here and contained in a small little pen. Thank God this isn’t Twilight though! Lol…

3:46 p.m. – It’s a very hot day… M’Lou just texted me she is on her way. I guess the pull of sexy vampires couldn’t keep her away. It’s always fun with the whole group of us like a show and can go out together.

4:21 p.m. – More and more people keep arriving. Man, I knew this show was popular but I didn’t expect this.

4:34 p.m. – The carpet is set up right in front of us, but the press is directly in front of us as well. So, not only do we have to contend with the crazy fans but now the carpet is blocked by all the press. Oh did I mention there are triple barricades in front of us as well… Man oh man…

4:46 p.m. – I’m really hoping that I can finish this poster today. I know most of the cast are pretty cool. Well, I guess we shall see….

5:01 p.m. – Megan just brought snacks….Mmmmmm snacks…M’Lou just got here… She’s right behind me.

5:09 p.m. – The carpet starts at 6:00 and runs until 8:00 p.m. That’s a long long carpet… sigh… I know a lot of the reoccurring actors will be here which is really cool. I always like getting a lot of the random actors cause they make shows like True Blood so good.

5:11 p.m. – It’s getting really hot… ugh…

5:23 p.m. – M’Lou just asked if I wanted to snort some Coke off of her back. The heat is getting to her. Either that or the sugar from Megan’s churros is making her wonky.

5:28 p.m. – Oh my God, it is so packed in this little area. I’m not one for crowds. I know I know you don’t have to say it. Sigh… I’m always in crowds but I don’t like them, I’m like a dichotomy… What can I say…?

5:45 p.m. – Things are starting to get going… You can see the publicists running around all crazy… It’s getting close…

6:04 p.m. – Oh I see the first drop off… the bad thing is a lot of people are here from the third season which hasn’t aired yet so we don’t know who is who yet… sigh…

6:12 p.m. – there is one lady in a purple dress no one can figure out who she is. Grumble…

6:21 p.m. – Oh, someone else has arrived… It looks like Adina Porter who plays Tara’s mom in the show…

6:31 p.m. – It is so hard to see everyone. You have no idea!

6:40 p.m. – Adina is coming over to sign. Security brought her right over to us. She is so sweet and I got her on my red True Blood poster. She signs for pretty much everyone.

6:44 p.m. – I think that Adina was a little shocked by all the fan attention! LOL…

6:52 p.m. – Kevin Alejandro is coming over now. It’s hard for us to see way in the back so we have to really rely on the people in front which kind of sucks… grumble…

7:36 p.m. – Kristin Bauer who plays Pam on the show is coming over. Everyone was screaming their heads off for her. She is tough to get as she is not out and about very often. She is so sweet though. She signs a lot in the front, and then we started yelling for her on the sides.

7:48 p.m. – Alex, Sam, Anna and Stephen arrived. It’s crazy.. Oh wait I see Ryan as well… Good lord the girls are screaming loud. I will say though this is a very quiet crowd for the most part, which is usually nice but when you want them to call people over it kind of sucks.

7:51 p.m. – Nelsan Ellis is coming over. He seems very shy. He signs a lot in the front of the barricade, and then we start waving him over to our side to sign our posters. He does, and then he signs a few more before he has to head back.

7:55 p.m. – Oh God… Alex is coming over. Yep, the girls are going crazy! He signs quite a bit, and my God the man is tall! He starts at the front and then makes his way back down to our end. I ask him to sign the posters in silver and all three of us got him. I said, “Thanks so much man.” He stops looks at me dead in the eyes and says, “you’re welcome.” Lol… That was a fun moment.

8:07 p.m. – Stephen Moyer is coming over. He signs a bunch and then when he gets to me, for some reason they skip him and take him down four people. Can you believe it! He signs for Megan, and then comes back to me so I got him but M’Lou missed him.. sigh…

8:43 p.m. – We are going to Baja Fresh… ahhhhh Baja…. I am so tired I just want to sleep!

9:12 p.m. – So over chips and salsa M’Lou decides she wants to try the after party… I grumble but agree. I really want to just go home but whatever… it’s all good.

9:17 p.m. – Walking to the after party we see a wall of collector’s walking towards us… this can mean only one thing. The after party isn’t accessible. We quickly turn around to get back to the theatre for the exits…

9:22 p.m. – So now we are back at the barricades again. Sigh… I’m not sure when this will break.

9:36 p.m. – Okay, so it seems like security is going to set up some sort of pen for us to stand in. Oh great. More chaos of running and trying to get a spot… sigh…

9:42 p.m. – And the race begins, the pushing the shoving the jockeying for position! God it really sucks… Megan even opted out and didn’t come back.

9:54 p.m. – We are still waiting. It is cold, I am tired, and I’m cranky. I don’t want to talk I just want to stand here, wait for these bastards to come out and then go home. Sigh…

10:04 p.m. – Did I mention I was cranky? Grrrrr…

10:14 p.m. – Well, it’s still going on, hopefully it will break soon…

10:21 p.m. – Okay, people are now leaving…

10:26 p.m. – No one yet… Oh there’s Rutina… She waves and does not stop… man… Thankfully, I have her on my cast shot already. I also had Ryan as well… M’Lou needs her though and was rejected…

10:31 p.m. – There’s Alan Ball the creator of the show. We start calling out for him, but he says he has to go. Then someone screams we’ve been waiting hours… So he comes over and signs a bunch. M’Lou and I both got him and I told him how much I loved Six Feet Under again… I didn’t dork out as much this time though. Lol…

10:37 p.m. – Ashley Jones is walking on by. She comes over and signs a few. She’s Daphne in the show from last season.

10:38 p.m. – Oh, and there’s Alex one person yelled for him and he came right over. I got him on my red poster this time. He’s such a cool guy, and really takes time out for his fans.

10:43 p.m. – Ryan is walking by, he’s coming over. Alex is still signing as well. Ryan signs my red poster but won’t change pens to sign M’Lou’s in silver. She got him in black and you can hardly see it… sigh… oh well… at least he’s on it, and he has such nice penmanship…
