Fanboy Fa- Wait… A Molly Ringwald Success? Wait… No! I Finally Got Molly Ringwald To Sign An Autograph! The Heavens Have Opened!

Welcome to this weeks Fanboy Fail– Wait, this isn’t friday… Huh… Does that mean… Wait… It can’t be… Could there have been a fanboy success last night? No… Hmmmm

It all started (insert slow motion moving picture book mental image here) when I got an email from OTG John about none other than Ms. Molly Ringwald doing a rare q and a. I had to tell the Pinkster who freaked out, bought a ticket and put the event on her calendar.

I was a tad leery… Ms. Ringwald and I have a sordid history as anyone who reads my site knows. There was a week when I thought we were all going to join the “I hate Molly Ringwald Club!” And the fact is I LOVE Molly Ringwald. I LOVE Pretty In Pink! I have a cast signed Breakfast Club poster in my kitchen (I mean where else right?)! I heart the strawberry haired vixen!

I just wish she was nicer…

So.. Let’s begin our journey…

6:43 p.m. – I just showed up at the venue… I guess this q and a will be taped for a radio program. That’s my understanding anyway. Pinky is already here and is flipping her shit. Pinky is the biggest Molly fan of all time and she has been rejected so many times…

6:49 p.m. – I have only a couple things with me, I mean I get it. I’ll be lucky to get one thing signed! Plus, I have my pink paint pen at the ready… Ah, the love of paint pens…

6:52 p.m. – Pinky has her Pretty in Pink LP that she has had for eternity. Seeing it in person, I am a tad horrified… It’s literally like she folded it in fours and shoved it in her purse. It’s bent to shit, with creased on the top, fraying on the side. To put it mildly, Theo could have slept, eaten and slept on on this album for a week and it would still look better! I’m only half kidding… LOL…

6:55 p.m. – I actually totally understand about getting something you have had an attachment to signed. I’ve gotten the oddest things signed and a lot of them I’ve had since I’ve been a kid. See Pinky, I do get it.

6:56 p.m. – There is a VIP reception now… Two people are there… The back door are wide open. That’s a little sad…

6:59 p.m. – Pinky and I are chilling. Pinky made Molly some scrabble tile necklaces… She’s a tad excited.

7:02 p.m. – It’s a tad barren here! For a pre party that costs like a hundred bucks I would have expected at least a few people to show up!

7:04 p.m. – Oh… Oh… Something is happening… Pinky’s 80’s senses are tingling… There she is… The cherry haired vixen herself! We saunter over, honestly I’m a tad apprehensive to even ask at this point. But I figured all she can say is not. Molly greeted a few people at the door and Then I asked, “Ms. Ringwald would you mind terribly signing a quick autograph?” Then I pulled out my Pretty in Pink Die Cut counter standee and I think because I had such a rare item she was like… “eh… Okay.” I handed over the pink paint pen and she did it!

I thanked her and then Pinky unfolded her LP cover and said, “Mollyimadenecklacesforyourandyourkidsihavemyalbumfrommyroomcanigetaphotowithyou?” Molly got her, “I just smelled a bad fart face” and then I handed Molly the pink paint pen so she could sign Pinky’s LP. Then Pinky said, “I’m going to the event!” Molly said, “oh well… I gotta get in…”

Pinky was a tad excited, and we hung out while Pinky… Wait for it… She got super excited over an autograph! I must admit the pink paint pen was pretty epic!!

While it wasn’t the time of my life, still I’m happy I got one! Just four more to go! LOL…

It was good of her to sign, now the Pinkster went inside the event and I’m sure she is going to have a recap of that coming up!

Until next time kids…
