Ooh tell us the good parts. Was it when you squeezed them both??
The part I liked best was that I barely got the hug question out of my mouth when Jemaine moved towards me & locked me in his arms. I was like ohhh
& then oh yis.
Ooooo SheWolf, your "good part" was very, very good. He was quite the "eager boy"!
More details? I can't get enough...
But it makes me remember one
of my bad parts. (I apologize in advance for the retelling of my M&G, but in my defense SheWolf asked, and we are in a Meet and Greet Analysis thread)
My friend was ready to take my pic with the J-God, er I mean the J-Dog, and Jemaine says something blissfull like, "How do you want me?" and my friend says boldly (as rehearsed), "She would really like a hug picture." I was so embarrassed
that I quickly said (like a flipping idiot) "No, no just take the picture." and then
(enter the good stuff) he put his arm around me, and I put my arm around him, then flash, moment over. From the look on his face in our picture, he probably thought I was grossed out at the thought of a hug from him.
If he only knew...
But you asked about the good parts...Chronological list of good parts:
-Meeting all the other fans waiting outside the Arie Crown in the dark misty Chicago night. We had a lot of laughs in that 1+ hour of waiting.
-Banter with the security guard and the roadies carrying items back and forth from bus to bldg.
-The glorius moment that Bret walks up out of the ramp, smiles up at us and promises to join us after dropping a few things off at the bus.
-I didn't drop dead.
-Spontaneous hugging of Bret. Inhaling. Being blown away by him (quite a new feeling for me at the time) So tall, so beautiful, so confident, so not
the "Bret" I had in my mind.
-My conversation with Bret. ".....nonchalant....*laugh*...." (one of the REALLY good parts!)
-Glancing over my shoulder while talking to Bret to see JEMAINE
walk up out of the ramp.
Seriously good part.
-Spontaneous hugging of Jemaine. Forgot to breath, I was near death at that moment. I do remember how big he is, I was on my tippy toes. He felt good. Looked good. Uh huh.
-Jemaine signing, smiling, and sweet, yet a bit uncomfortable. Photo with Jemaine. (see above
-Bret coming around after a bit with a fruit plate. Eating strawberries and group chatting it up with the Conchords.
Not bad, eh?
-Randomly finding myself standing next to Jemaine (I guess everyone else was done with him) and having a one-on-one chat. Oh, listening to his accent... Trying not to pass out from the eye-contact... Trying to act "normal" and stuff...
good, good part.
-Meeting Eugene and Nigel.
Oh, my list of regrets and redo's is probably just as long, but those are the bits I try to focus on.
Whew, that was so long. That'll teach ya to ask me questions.
