Today, is a super shitty day… Dude, you don’t even know… I’m driving to meet Mr. Anton Yelchin and Zoe Saldana when I see flashing lights behind me. I’m like, WTF! So, I pull over… And the officer says, I was holding my phone. I said, no that’s an I-pod, he says, “I saw your jaw moving.” I was like yes, I have a headset… See… And I show him the headset… He grabs my insurance and license… not registration ironically, and heads off and writes me a ticket… Now, I was on the phone, but had a headset on. I was so pissed…
I have NEVER had a ticket before, I’m anal when I drive… I’m so upset, and driving to park. I stop at a stop sign, make a left and what do you know… I get pulled over again… This time I didn’t stop for the required five beats. This officer said, I “Flew through a stop sign…” Is there like a dark cloud over my head today? The second officer was really nice though, and only gave me a fix it ticket for a brake light that’s out, that I didn’t know about… He even called the first officer a dick, which I appreciated. But I will admit I’m a little worked up.
5:02 p.m. – I’m so pissed, don’t even get me started. Anyway, there are like 35 to 40 people here. CB saved me a space thankfully as he got here at like 2:00 p.m. I was getting a ticket like I said above… Grrrrrr… So mad….
5:16 p.m. – No, I’ve not stopped bitching about the ticket… and I won’t… For days!
5:35 p.m. – The sun is beating down… ugh… Scotty just arrived. Yay, a new body to complain to.
5:39 p.m. – I brought a Complex magazine and my Colombiana mini poster for Zoe Saldana. I’m a huge fan of hers, and I’ve heard lately she wasn’t as nice as she used to be. Although I have met her a couple times and she’s always been cool as far as I’ve seen.
5:45 p.m. – For Anton Yelchin I have a Star Trek mini poster I just need him to finish, a Fright Night mini poster and an individual Fright Night mini poster as well. I met Anton at the Terminator Salvation premiere where I almost crushed him because the crowd was pushing so hard.
5:54 p.m. – I should probably repost that article… hmmmm I sense a Mike The Fanboy Flashback!
6:02 p.m. – Everyone was kinda spread around but the barricades are now up and the masses are lined up.
6:05 p.m. – A car is coming, oh they are pulling around…
6:13 p.m. – CB is going to get a sharpie in the eye. He just told me he found a gray hair. You know why… I get grey hair’s because of CB! GRRRRRRRRRR…
6:15 p.m. – Oh crap, there’s Anton Yelchin! No one see’s him! lol… CB and I start yelling and everyone joins in. Anton turns and mouths, “Hold on one second.” He disappears into the gate.
6:17 p.m. – Anton reemerges from the gate and comes right on over. Yay….
6:19 p.m. – CB has like 15 things for the guy, lol… No I’m kidding, but he gets a couple things personalized. Scotty didn’t have anything so he got my Fright Night poster signed. I got my Star Trek poster and my Individual Fright Night mini poster done.
6:20 p.m. – I told Anton Yelchin how much I enjoyed Fright Night and he was very thankful. Such a nice guy. He seems very humble. For being in Terminator and Star Trek, I’m shocked at how cool he is.
6:23 p.m. – And Anton is still signing away. he’s doing the entire line. Photos and everything. Such a stand up guy. I always appreciate it when stars are cool to their fans.
6:31 p.m. – Okay, now if Zoe Saldana comes over before the show I can go home! lol…
6:34 p.m. – Oh, there’s a car… Yep, it’s Zoe. Everyone yells for her, and holy crap, she’s coming right on over! Wow…
6:35 p.m. – She is signing pretty much one per person or taking photos. Man, what to do, what to do… I know I look like crap today, so I’m going with getting my Colombiana poster signed. I’m stoked to see it. The previews look great!
6:36 p.m. – Zoe Saldana signs for CB and then looks super happy to see the Colombiana posters Scotty and I have. She even did a cute xo on the top of mine.
6:37 p.m. – Wow, she is literally doing the whole line, I’m very impressed! I didn’t expect her to come over and not only did she come over she came over on the way in! Rad!
6:39 p.m. – Zoe is moving fast but making sure everyone gets at least a photo or autograph… I’m very impressed with her I’ll tell you!
6:45 p.m. – That’s it! She finished the entire line and then waves as she goes in. One of the fans hands her a Star Trek rubber bracelet as she passes by. I’m so happy we didn’t have to wait all night! It’s really rare when there are two people on a show I care about but really rare when both of them come over in the beginning!
Starting this website has been a labor of love. I love sharing my fandom experiences but more than that I love hearing everyone else’s stories. I love hearing about conventions, movie locations, meet celebrities good and bad, I love it all.
I sincerely hope you enjoy my exploits, the adventures of everyone who submits an article, and all the members of the Fanboy Family!
Without everyone who writes and reads MTF there wouldn’t be a site. This is truly for the fans, by the fans!
