I left the theatre and went straight to the stage door i had located earlier. There were only a man and his kid waiting. Then a young woman walked towards me and asked if i was waiting for them.. i told her i was.. and she said she was staying with me
security cleared us from that area because it was were the trucks had to dock to be loaded. But i could see his intentions and this girl and i walked towards the guy's bus instead. We were waiting when we run into Matt and my partner in crime asked him whether they were going to come out and if they were going to have drinks somewhere.. he said if we knew of any place they could grab a beer and was going to stay open late.. they were game!
she said she'd get back to him.. so she called her friend -who was in this pub that closed at 2am- and asked for directions. We told Matt and he said they might go there then
Then, Arj came out.. and we started talking about the possibility of a M&G..i told him i really wanted the guys to sign the uke and he said maybe he could take it with him and return it to me with their signatures.. but then i was missing out on the pictures with them and the video of them signing it!! He picked up on my accent that i was foreigner and we started talking about Barcelona.. where he's done some stand up comedy.. then he complimented my English
and said he really needed to go to the bus to drop his luggage and then he would try to go and talk the guys into meeting us. There were only seven of us waiting.. and apparently they let in the man with the kid to go meet them because they had cool shirts (they said I
FOTC) which was really unfair because i was wearing my Jemaine & Bret & Murray & Mel tee! which is way cooler!
It was pretty chilly..so i could feel the frostbite eating through my feet ..and i had the biggest urge to pee. and that's when Bret came out!! He came straight to us and offered us liquorize.. but i know what liquorize does to your breath so i passed
I asked him to sign my uke.. and he wrote "Amanda, ukes not nukes" and draw the little guitar with the wings
we then took a bunch of pictures.. had a great laugh together.. and he went on to the next group of fans.
Bret was very very sweet and accomodating but i think he could read in my eyes that my heart belongs to the J-dogg. guilty as charged, sir
then Arj walked up to me and asked me how happy i was.. *very, actually* but all i could think about was Jemaine.. would he come out? and he did.. and he was wearing that navy blue sweater with a white tee underneath
he went to another group of fans, did his thing and then walked towards me. I shook his hand and felt like he had the intention of kissing me on the cheek instead (probably all in my imagination due to my cultural background where we greet everybody with one kiss on each cheek.) so i told him if it was ok if i gave him a kiss on the cheek.. he looked confused (and a little scared
) and Bret saved the situation asking Jemaine for a marker.. so i took the oportunity to change the subject and ask him to write something on my uke! he asked me if i was the girl on the first row.. i said i was and he said i looked familiar
he asked me what my name was.. and he wrote "Amanda, you're the most beautiful girl with a ukelele - Jemaine"
as he was writing he said it maybe was going to be too long.. which made me laugh and i told him "i was going to say.. the longer the better.. but that's inappropriate" which made him laugh
Nat, another girl i'd met there, recorded everything and took our picture..
..then we talked a bit about the tour.. he told me he was tired but it was being a lot of fun!
he went to some other fans and then Arj pointed out that Dave was not mentioned on my shirt.. Jemaine looked at my shirt and said he had seen it from the stage.. that it was pretty cool.. and i thanked him and asked him if he had time for another picture.. he said he did and i took my leather jacket off.. snuggled up to him and took a second picture together
we thanked them again and their manager told them that the bus was leaving.. so we each parted our ways.
There's (almost) no beating tonight!
Thank you for all the M&G vibes!!! they worked!!!
