Pretty In Pinky! Recapping The True Blood Season 5 Premiere! With Smelly Girl! Sam Trammell! Alexander Skarsgard! Stephen Moyer and More! With… Yes Even Some Autographs! LOL
After reading my recap of the True Blood season 5 premiere, my comrade in arms, Ms. Pretty in Pinky decided to chime in on the experience herself. Now, we both literally went though the war zone, and to me at least what I refer to as our annual right of passage.
Now, like I said this year was the worst of all years, but what can you do right?
Pinky still managed to get like 30 photos with people! Crazy! Check out her recap after the jump!
Hello, my lovelies. Pinky Lovejoy here still giggling after reading Mikey’s write up on our time spent together in the trenches….er, I mean the True Blood premiere. While I don’t normally write about the same thing he does (even when we’re at the same event), I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to add a few choice moments he forgot (as he was too frazzled from his smelly “girlfriend” behind him) and share my pictures. As you probably know, I’m not really much of an autograph girl, except in very rare cases (like Sam Trammell or a super hot Joe Manganiello). However, fellow writer Chuck from Texas is also a huge fan of the show and had sent me some pictures to try and get signed, since he never really sees these people out and about. Mikey thought this was hysterical, knowing what a terrible autograph collector I am, but I told Chuck I’d at least try. I’m happy to report that despite the horror that was our barricade experience, I not only managed to get 25 pictures, but five autographs, as well! Three for Chuck and two for me. Score!
Of course, I couldn’t really start without first giving a HUGE shout-out to the boys who went at the crack of dawn and secured our spots. Scotty, Other Mike, and Franky Love….thank you. Thank you very much (especially Scotty). Like Mikey said, I was so happy to be next to him, especially with the weird vibe in the air and strange crowd. It helped to have a brother-in-arms, especially when it really felt like a war zone. I counted at least six fights going on at various times…and that’s not even counting Mikey’s rage. Normally we pretty much see the same people when we attend events, but True Blood really brought out the crazies. You know that smelly girl Mikey was referring to? I’m not even sure she was a girl. I think it was a boy trying to be a girl (not that there’s anything wrong with that…but the result did not go well. That’s all I’m saying).
The most fun we had before the premiere started was when we had an impromptu sing-a-long to Carly Rae Jepsen’s peppy pop song, “Call Me Maybe.” I can’t help it! That song is catchy….and everyone around us got to hear us sing it. Several times. Actually, I’m kind of surprised we didn’t get discovered because I’m pretty sure our vocal melody was amazing (she says, sarcastically). Gotta love the iPhone’s ability to play music in the midst of loud and unruly crowds. Fun times!
OK, yes, I did say that ridiculous thing to Adina about looking much better in person, but it’s only because she looks like a whacked out cracked out hooker on the show. In person she was lovely…except for her dress, which was really trying to show us her breasts. Try as I might I couldn’t avert my eyes enough to not look at the nip slip about to happen. Otherwise it was a lovely dress. Just a bit risqué.
For the record, there’s nothing wrong with losing my mind over Camilla Luddington. I love her. And she was SO sweet – she was so excited that I knew her body of work that she asked if she could give me a hug. So cute!
Joe Manganiello yelling at The Most Hated Dealer of All Time was the coolest thing ever. Who doesn’t want sexy Joe defending them? He actually said, “I’m going to sign up here for real fans.” Love it! You go, Joe.
Now, of course I have no idea what it feels like to be swarmed at an event the way these crowd favorites were, but my sweet little Sam was definitely frazzled. I always bring him a card of some sort and when he came over to me, he actually signed the card instead of the season promo shot I’d printed up. And then, to make matters worse, he signed the season promo shot not once, but twice. With a terrible signature. I get it, it’s a madhouse, he’s rushed, and that’s fine. I’ve got a myriad of other signatures from him at other times that I cherish and I appreciate him stopping to begin with (I even got a pic!). See the great poster-sized creation I made? Don’t be jealous.
The best part of the night? Sam seeing my necklace…and then as he was being pulled into the event, he said, “Love ya, Pinky!”
I immediately looked at Mikey to be sure he got it on tape, but sadly, no. Just pictures. Blurgh. Ah, well. The memory will serve me well (and Scotty witnessed the whole thing, so that made me happy). As Sam’s #1 fan I had a responsibility to not only make, but wear a necklace with his name on it, right? I mean, he was the main reason I even went.
The only time I almost yelled at Smelly Girl was when she yelled out, “I love you, Sam!!” Um, you better back off, girl. I will cut you.
Enjoy the pictures – Mikey’s already described most of the people in his write up, but I thought you’d like to see the awesome pics I was able to get where they weren’t in motion. Plus, if you look behind Mikey in the picture of Jim Parrack, you can see a tiny bit of Smelly Girl pushing up against him – see, he wasn’t kidding about all that pushing!
I also took shots of the autographs I sent over to Chuck, as well as the few I got – Sam’s double signature and Joe’s sexy signature (seriously, how does he manage to even make his signature sexy? That boy just oozes sex appeal).
