since i’ve been seeing all this hooplah on fans and their encounters with everyone twilight related, i’ve decided to provide you all with some deets on my run-in with mike welch!
misslawn, betsey, josie and i had just visited a few shops in the gastown like goodfoot and stussy and then i drove back to the hotel so we could get ready for our dinner at gotham. as i was pulling into the driveway, i noticed a bunch of teenage girls surrounding this somewhat tall guy with orangey hair.
FIRST THOUGHT: OMG ITS CARLISLE!
i look more closely as i’m blocking the driveway and i immediately start pushing betsey out the door yelling:
“OMG GET OUT GET OUT! GO GO GO! ITS MIKE NEWTON! JUST GO!!!“
meanwhile, i calmly park the car in front of the lobby to get valet’d (is that a word, i guess not because the red squiggly lines are shouting at me), and then speed walk over to the group of girls.
afterward, i figured i’d thank mike for being such a sport. i was giddy, it was our first twi-encounter with one of the cast and i felt like i had diarrhea of the mouth. i remember i told him the following (not in order, oh and also – when i get excited i curse up a storm):
- YO! you’re the SHIIIIIIIT Mike! | Him: smiles and laughs
- you are HILARIOUS, i think you’re fkn funny as hell (as i graze his arm with my hand muwahahha) | Him: laughs harder and says “thanks!”
- is it weird for you? you know, to be getting all THIS?? | Him: yea, its a little weird… [catches himself] but you know, i REALLY appreciate it all, i’m thankful for everything, its fun…
- more playful banter back and forth.. [teeny bopper interrupts us for an autograph and i walk away] *but how’s THAT for an answer, he was really sincere and sweet about it.
as i’m walking away, i call rach and in a low tone i tell her: “COME. DOWN. RIGHT. NOW.” click.
no sooner do i reach the lobby doors do i see rach and crew running and bursting through the doors in their pj’s, pajamas, wet hair, and makeup hardly finished – IT WAS A FKN SIGHT!
and then Aiden from sex in the city came out and i waved at him since we had shared an elevator with him and his dogs… he politely waved back hehehehhehe…
afterward, betsey was telling me i should have stayed and chatted with mike since we had a pretty endearing short chat – tempting, but no. i’m not THAT much of a cougar, although he WAS very nice and charming, i didn’t want to intrude on his personal space… plus it was daytime out and yea… i only work my magic at night ;P
and check out this interview w/ mike and peter facinelli – mike is SO HUMBLE! =) check out how he reacts when he hears about rob’s commentary in the dvd about mike…
