Ok, this could take a while, you'll have to put up with my descriptions...
So after the show, my sister and I were pretty much dying over how amazing the show had been. We knew that B and J had been doing meet and greets after the show, and we had been planning for weeks to go and wait by the stage door. We had also heard that the night before there hadn't been a meet and greet, so we were praying that there would be one on the second night.
We ended up getting amazing spots in line - on the side that was slightly further from the door but right in the front. We were also on the side of the door that when it opened, you couldn't see who was going to come out, so whenever the door opened, everyone on our side of the crowd would gasp in anticipation, only to be disappointed when it wasn't Bret or Jemaine. It was actually pretty funny
Eventually, the door opened, and the other side of the crowd (the side that could see who was coming out of the door) all exclaimed "BRET!!" And lo and behold, out comes Bret, smiling happily, not hesitating at all and jumping right into the crowd to sign autographs and take pictures. You could tell he was in a bit of a hurry. He finally got to our side of the crowd after he finished with the other side, and I quickly thrust out a piece of paper and asked if me and my sister could have his autograph. He smiled (that SMILE!! AAH!!) and happily signed his autograph for us, and then when we asked if we could have a picture with him, he said "of course, I don't mind at all!" and he came right in between me and my sister, PUT HIS ARMS AROUND US (hyperventilation occurred) and took the picture with us. It was unbelievable!! We didn't really try to chat with him after that, we knew his family was in town that night and that he was in a hurry, and didn't want to hold him up. Maybe next time I'll get to talk to him more
About 20 minutes later, the door opened again, and out came Jemaine!! Who I must say is even more gorgeous in person. THOSE EYES!! After spending a very long time on the other side of the crowd (I was so happy to see that he wasn't leaving until absolutely everyone had pics and autographs - what a nice guy), he finally came over to our side, and came straight to me and my sister first. We asked for his autograph, and chatted a little bit with him as he signed it. He stood upright so we couldn't see what he was writing, and I said "oh, can't see what you're writing, is it a secret message?" jokingly of course. And Jem just looked right at me, SMILED THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SMILE IN THE WORLD, and said "hahaha, it's not really viry much of a missage!" I about died. Then we took a picture with him too, quite the same way that we did with Bret. I was in heaven! Right before Jemaine moved on, I turned to him and said "You and Bret were amazing tonight, I loved the show! Thank you SO MUCH, it was unbelievable!" and Jemaine smiled and said "Oh, it's no problem, I'm so glad you liked it!" and then he made his way, and me and my sister left on a cloud of euphoria.
So pretty much it was the greatest night ever. AND I finally got to tell Jemaine just how amazing and talented I thought he was!! I'd been waiting a really long time to do that.
And of course, as we were walking away and reading the autographs, I realized that Bret had signed his "songbird and sister: I miss you. Bret McKenzie." After which I died laughing because of course that is just so Bret! Jemaine signed his "to songbird and also to sister: love from, Jemaine". I always come home and just stare at them, barely able to believe that it actually happened. And I just can't even get over HOW NICE the guys were. You could tell that they were just genuinely warm people, and it made me SO HAPPY to know that the two guys I admire are truly as kind-hearted and generous as I'd hoped them to be.
Wow, that was extremely long. Hope I don't bore you all with my fantasy evening
