So today I ventured out of the house to take myself and my camera on a field trip to the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo.
It was my first time doing anything like this. Peter Facinelli,
Alex Meraz and Tyler Houseman were at
the show and I knew that there was no way I could stay away. I went to
the Panel and the Photo Op, and I
really wish I did get the autograph, at least I could have talked to
him. (And the autograph lines were very short…) So when I first saw
Peter he was autographing pictures and you could take pics of him even
though you didn’t see him. I have to say…it was really weird seeing him
for the first time. I think even now it was all surreal. But at least I
could stare at him all I wanted to get used to seeing him. That I’m glad
for. He looked over at me a couple of times. But that wouldn’t be the
last I saw of him.
We lined up for the panel (the kids and I) and I got a chance to shake Peter’s hand. His hand was so cold that I swear he is a vampire
for real. The panel started and I got pretty excited. I mean it was neat
to finally see for myself what it was like instead of watching it on
YouTube. And the irony here…I have three clips on YouTube of my own!
(Alex talks about a funny moment on the set with Taylor
Lautner, Peter talks
about how they put on his makeup and how he hides from the sun, and
Peter talks about his favorite scene in New Moon.)
Then we went on to the photo op. It was a lot of waiting for the ten seconds I got for the picture. He said hello to me…I said hello to him. I
grabbed onto his leather jacket from behind. He had his arm around me.
Then snap. It was over. Man, forty bucks for ten seconds! I haven’t seen
the picture yet since they said they would send it to our apartment. I
know I really didn’t get to see much of him or talk to him but having
the pictures and videos are enough for me to really be happy that I got a
chance to see him. So in the wise words of me I say, SQUEEE!!!
And finally! I get my own exclusive pictures. It’s about time eh? Here they are…
