Welcome to Emmy Awards season! Well, at least that’s what I call it. It’s the week of the Emmy’s and there are tons of parties and things happening in the city. Now, the upside is a lot of people are out but the downside is there’s always a lot who are not on the list, who don’t show up, etc… It can really be a cluster.
Anyway, I decided to head out with Scotty, Pinky, and the sassy Liz for a smaller party. The biggest names on the list were Kristen Bauer, Aaron Paul, Melissa McCarthy, Brittany Snow, Don Cheadle, Connie Britton, and a few others. Now, normally I wouldn’t be all that jazzed for those names individually, but I needed all of them to finish a piece here and there. Especially Aaron Paul who I need on a crapload of Breaking Bad stuff and to finish one of my sisters Christmas presents!
So, I’m hoping that we get some good luck!
6:59 p.m. – I just arrived. Scotty, Pinky, Chris and sassy Liz are already here. There are only about six or seven people here so God willing it should be sort of easy.
7:05 p.m. – Oh, there’s the first arrival! Modern Family star Ty Burrell! He’s on the phone but motions he will sign.
honestly, Ty Burrell is really nice and I don’t have much left for him. I did bring my Modern Family season 1 DVD just in case.
Ty Burrell gets off the phone and greets us signing whatever we have. He’s always been super nice.
7:10 p.m. – Now security is screwing us! They move us back about half a block. Ah well.
7:14 p.m. – Pinky brought her dog Sammy Rhodes. She’s holding him and Sammy keeps staring at me and trying to lick me but all he really can reach is my nipples which is a tad disturbing let me tell you! LOL…
7:19 p.m. – Gabriel Mann is coming into the party. I honestly, don’t know him, but Pinky is all a twitter over him. I think I heard her say, a twitter… He’s very nice and is happy to sign and do photos.
7:22 p.m. – Julie Bowen just arrived. She waved and jumped right inside the party. Doh… Oh, and there’s Eric Stonestreet. He didn’t even wave and just jumped right in. Okay…
7:27 p.m. – Michael Steger is arriving, and comes over… Again… Pinky is happy. I’m like.. Oh… lol…
7:42 p.m. – Ashley Madekwe from Revenge just arrived. She’s super sweet, but who knew she would even be here ! Doh!
7:49 p.m. – Chord Overstreet just arrived and barely gave us a wave. Pinky is sad and devastated. That’s why she came out tonight. Ah well.. he’s not known for being nice.
7:54 p.m. – Scotty has been placed firmly behind a tree. LOL… He can maneuver around it, but that’s a damn big pole.
8:02 p.m. – Oh! Oh! There’s Melissa McCarthy! I’m so excited! I’ve never met Melissa before and I keep hearing how nice she is, but I’ve never met her.
She comes over and is the sweetest thing.
She signed my Bridesmaids mini poster and then my Entertainment Weekly magazine as well.
I also told her how much I loved Gilmore Girls! I should say Academy Award Nominee Melissa McCarthy. I love her! I get a photo with her but it’s on Scotty’s camera so I haven’t seen it yet. Doh…
8:09 p.m. – Rachel Lee Cook and Daniel Gillies just arrived.
Both of them come over and do photos and sign.
Scotty got his She’s All That DVD signed, again I didn’t have anything for her or him for that matter, but they were both super sweet!
8:11 p.m. – There are some people I know we’re missing but honestly I don’t have a clue who… Oh, there’s Missy Pyle! Doh.
8:15 p.m. – Rachel Harris is here. Some people are calling her over. She is the sweetest.
She actually took some photos of us on the barricade.
I man adorable! She’s so cute. Brittany Snow just went in so we missed her.
8:16 p.m. – Rachel Harris grabbed Reid Scott because Pinky was dying for him. I realized he was on The Big C and I was like, Oh shit!
So, I grabbed a photo with him. I hate barricade photos, but you know, what can you do? He was very nice.
8:34 p.m. – God, still not Aaron Paul, or Kristen Bauer, or Connie Britton, or…
8:41 p.m. – Christa B. Allen just showed up. Pinky and Liz were all stoked and then Liz was like… Uh Mike… The young Jenna Rink from 13 Going on 30! Then I had to get a photo! Hello! Christa B. Allen was very nice! Jenna Rink!
8:58 p.m. – Pinky calls over Thomas Sadoski. he’s really cool and loves Sammy Rhodes. Thomas Sadoski starts playing with Sammy and is adorable!
9:15 p.m. – It looks like the party is not getting started… Instead it’s barren, no one… sigh..
9:23 p.m. – Scotty just left… Liz is being extra sassy, and I’m like… I’m waiting here for Brittany Snow… Brittany Snow…
9:34 p.m. – I’m going to call it. Grumble…
So, Liz and I are heading out. Pinky and Chris are going to go the full distance. God bless them! While it wasn’t the bounty of awesomeness, you have to take these smaller nights sometimes. And it was still fun to hang with Liz, Pinky, Chris and Scotty so who can complain… (Mike raises hand)
Until next time kids…
