I guess this is proof of life. I'm working on a writeup, but I wanted the pics in a separate post so I can eventually lock them without locking the writeup.


This was us on Sunday night at Macaroni Grille, taken with my friend's iPhone. I had to post this, because the friend who took the pictures also said my biceps are insanely huge and that I need to stop doing pullups. I, however, am loving the huge biceps and have no plans to stop doing the pullups or pushups. I am a proud muscle mama. :D


I love how these pics turned out, though they do make me wonder why people like the dimples so much, because when I look at these, I feel like someone shot a hole in my face. Still, I had fun.


Best part of the Misha op was watching the other ops in front of us. One girl seemed to be afraid of him and when he tried to hug her, she ran away, so he went after her with his arms outstretched kinda like Frankenstein and he had her by the wrists, trying to keep her in the shot, but had to let go. She was smiling, though, so I don't know what was going on. And the next one wanted to stand behind him, and she kinda wrapped her arms around him, but she was so small, her arms were all you could see, and he tried to move to one side or the other so she could peek around, but she wouldn't let him, and finally, I think he kinda leaned back and threw his arms up and pretended to scream like he was in a death grip or something. I really don't know how they do these things.


Okay, I hate this pic, but I had my mouth open in the other one, so this is the best one. I had two Jensens and two Jareds, and my friend was with me in all of them, so we each took whichever one we thought was most flattering. I don't know what it is about Jensen. I think he's just so amazingly gorgeous that no one can look good standing next to him. I'm happy with every photo op I've ever had EXCEPT my Jensen solo photos.

Funny story from the Jensen photo op line. We were standing a few places in front of this guy who talked sorta loud and kept referring to "My ex, the BASTARD!" LOL. He said "I usually don't get up this early, but I'll do early for Jensen. He's top of my top five!" We had a good laugh at that. Too bad we were standing ahead of him in the line, because I would've like to see how that photo went down. This is the same guy who later became the famous Ackles Dance boy that stood up in the panel and did the pudding dance. I don't know if it was actually the pudding dance or something else, because we were behind him and couldn't get the full effect.

But anyway, Jensen was so ON. We were pretty early in the line for his pics as the gold ticket holders came out of the breakfast after we were already lined up. So, he was fresh. I almost got the impression that he'd rub his hands together like Dean, crouch down, and say something like, "Bring it on!" But he was really lovely and gracious and smiley and svelte! I... okay, I'm a terrible fangirl, because I just wanted to put him in my pocket and take him home. Of course, we had our theories about why he was in such a good mood, but... yeah, in appropriate, although I think Jim's tweet from yesterday sorta supports our theory. So, anyway, we got up to the front, and we kinda darted in, me on one side, and she on the other, and then they snapped the pic and we switched pics, and Jensen kinda shrugged and said, "I'll just stand here, then," and I think my friend might've said something like "that works," or, "You do that," but I don't think I even looked him in the eye. I am such a bad fangirl. Anyway, this is how it came out. I wish it was better, but what can you do?


At this point, I guess since I said that Jensen makes it impossible for anyone to look good next to him, I have to speculate that Jared must be like a neutral color, because both of our pics with him turned out really great. My hair was having a bad weekend since I recently went -fate and -cone free, which is supposed to be good for it, but yeah, transitional hair woes. I think there was a conversation about my friend's LSU t-shirt, and Jared said he might not be okay with it, and she gave him some shit about whether he could still be a Texas fan after the terrible season they had this year, and he said something like 'hell yeah,' but again, me not a word. Although, on our first pic, he got his arm stuck in my hair. LOL. I don't know whether I was amused or mortified. Still funny. And while we were standing in the line in the room, a pregnant woman had her pics, and he like had his hands on her belly. I think it kicked or something, because she acted like she got shocked. It was funny and cute.

There are more pics from when we went bike riding on the beach and from outside the Viper room, but I haven't got them yet. I'll post those when I have them.

These are AWESOME, you all look great:) I love Misha's dapper outfit and Jim's shirt.

Nothing wrong with being quiet around the guys, I don't think that makes you a bad fangirl, just the silent kind;)

I'd never go to a convention, but I must admit it's fun to follow the tweets and read about the panels. It makes me so happy when people share their good times.

It's funny, though, because while we stood in line, we had ideas of how we should do the pics, but then when we got up there, I got deer in the headlights syndrome, and we just darted in and darted out, Chinese fire drill in the middle, but totally worth it. Definitely a good time I'm happy to share.

Stop talking rubbish, you look gorgeous in all of these, you crazy woman! I love that little sparkly thing you've got in your hair! I'm lolling at the dimples comment, though. I love them on anyone, but my galpal has them and she hates them - she says when she was little she used to take a pencil and try and push them back out from the inside to get rid of them, lol. Jared did distract me a little in the last one, though. He forgot to take his ugly pills again, didn't he? ;-)

Date: 2011-02-15 09:02 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Haha, the sparkly thing in my hair is actually a bunch of teeny hairclips I got for like 99cents on ebay. I love them, too. Too bad all the cute ebay accessories come from China or Thailand, though, because you have to wait forever to get them.

And the dimples thing. Yeah, as far back as I can remember, just about the first thing anyone ever says to me is, "Wow, those are some big dimples you have there." I don't think I've ever had a job where my nickname wasn't Dimples. So, I guess it's something people notice, but I never do until I see pics like this, and I'm like, "Who shot a hole in my face?"

Yes, Jared is totally lacking some ugly juice there. :P

You look gorgeous .. I think prefer the look you had in the Jared and Jensen ops (white top, hair down) but hell. You look good in all of them.

I refuse to show my teeth when I smile because I have these awful buck teeth but... *sigh* what can I say? You're a fit, healthy blonde who was blessed with both good genes and the will to keep that body in tip top order.

And I'm gonna *sigh* again...

Jeeeeeensssssseeeeen! I don't know when/if I'll ever see him again in person ... but my oh my, I still rely on sense memory from my photo ops. How firm he was when my hand was on his back ... and how firm he was when he hugged ... and .... ummm... I think I'd better stop now 'cause my thoughts are getting a little NC17.

You look like you had a good time. Did you? I hope you did.

I might be the only person in the world who is incapable of having NC-17 thoughts about Jensen. I just friggin' love him so much. I must be doing it wrong, though. LOL.

And yes, a good time was had by all. I'm writing up the trip report now, but it might not get posted for a day or so. I didn't bring my comp to LA, and I have to work tonight. So, there is more to come. I just loved Jensen's energy. He just seemed like he was genuinely happy to be there. I really appreciated it. I still get a grin when I think about it. :P

Hey :) Lovely report. You and your friend look really good :)

"but I don't think I even looked him in the eye. I am such a bad fangirl."
I know that feeling. I met Jensen @ Chicago in 2009 and I had photo op with him. I was so nervous that I couldn't look at him. I looked at his shoes when I was waiting in a line. After the photo was taken I couldn't even remember what he was wearing lol.

From: [identity profile]
I had pics with him in 2008 and at least managed to turn around as I left the room and say thank you. This time, I just kinda dashed out. Maybe it was because the door was right there. *shrugs* I wish I'd had a clever one-liner or something but alas, no.

The j's could make anyone look bad, but I think these turned out great. :)

Also I have to know what Jim tweeted and I'm to lazy to look - so spill - LOL!

You look like you had a great time and I'm so glad you shared! I can live vicariously!

I'm at work and don't really have time to reply to everyone, so I hope no one minds me answering your question first. I believe Jim's tweet said something like: "happy valentine's everyone. I got to celebrate it early on Sunday watching Jensen and Danneel play kissyface in the green room at the con. Watching love is fun." Of course, that's completely me going by memory and not a direct quote at all. Also, not one single other person saw her there, so I guess she was well hidden. LOL. I think it's adorable, though.

You're welcome. I can only talk about a fraction of what went on, since we really tried to make an effort to get out of the hotel when we could, so I think we only attended about half of the panels and none of the special stuff that cost an arm and a leg. And don't count yourself out as never going to a con. I spent less than a thousand dollars on the whole weekend including tickets, airfare, photo ops, room and eats. Of course, part of that was having a roommate with a great travel agent who got us a discounted rate. I talked to one other con goer out in the hallway who said she had set up a savings account especially for this convention. She went gold, though, and I only went General Admission, but unless you're really into autographs, I don't think Gold is worth the money. For me, though, the draw wasn't so much the show or the boys but meeting up with online friends. I feel like, if you don't make the effort to bring those online friends into real life, then they just kinda go away. It really was more about all the time we spent laughing and talking and fearing for our lives in LA traffic. Meeting the guys was definitely not a detriment to the experience, however.

Thank you. The great thing about photo ops, is you don't have to say anything, just smile and walk fast. LOL. I'm sure he probably appreciates not having to make small talk with every single person that comes through there, since there are soooo many. But I bet if I had a one liner I thought he'd be sure to remember, I'd probably try to use it.

From: [identity profile]
They are nerve-wracking and embarrassing, especially the way they had it set up here where there are like fifteen or twenty other people waiting for their ops standing behind the camera watching yours. But I'd say it's probably worth it, if for no other reason than to have an excuse to get sorta dolled up and feel pretty for the rest of the day. That's obviously not something I do very often given that my everyday life is pretty much all about the manual labor and sweat.

Seriously all your hard work is beautifully on display here! :D

And I completely veto the stopping the push ups, your arms look fantastic! I've always preferred the definitely look myself so I'm with you, be uber proud of those biceps you've earned them! :P

It looks like you had a great time hon and that really was the whole point so good on you for doing this for you and having a break from the normal and living a little. You more than deserve it. :D

Thank you!

I have to laugh because you said "good on you" in your comment. Did I ever tell you the story of how I started doing Jari Love workout DVDs? Well, I think she's Canadian, and during the whole course of the DVDs, she was always saying, "Good, Anja." And I kept thinking. Who the heck is this Anja she keeps talking to? I figured it was someone off camera. I probably had done that workout three times before I realized she was saying "Good on you." Bwahahaha.

And no, I won't be abandoning my pushups or pullups any time soon. Of course, I've been sick since I got back, so I haven't done much of anything but lie around and cough.

You look awesome in these, and it is IMPOSSIBLE to outshine Jensen. I could not look him in the eye either, I mean, I talked to him but I didn’t look him in the eye, that would have been... Guh. So yeah. You are in good company. Or something. (I am not actually good company. But I feel you.) These are awesome, and I am really glad you got to go and that I get to see the results! Jealous about Jim being there. A little. Overall I am cool with picking SF as I think I have said. :) I heard LA was kind of a madhouse.

Date: 2011-02-18 09:47 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I don't really know if it was a madhouse. We only went to about half the panels and the photo ops, spent a good deal of time in our rooms and chasing each other around via text messages. I didn't get the feeling that it was particularly crazy, though. My roommate even made the comment that everyone seemed a lot nicer, as in, while she was standing in lines she didn't hear people trash talking other people so much as usual. I guess she goes to a lot of these, so she'd know what's par for the course and what isn't. I didn't really notice, except for the little hubbub caused by the girl who got like five photos with Jensen. LOL. I will admit, though, that the one lady I was standing next to in one of the lines was rubbing me the wrong way. I couldn't really say what annoyed me about her, but I did have a little laugh when she walked away for a second and left her bag on the floor. It said SAMGIRL right on it. I said, well, that's probably it, then. LOL. For all I know, we've probably argued online. I was very leery about asking or giving LJ or forum names, because you never know if the person you're talking with has made you throw things at your computer until you actually ask. :S Sometimes, you're better off not knowing.

I'm only 5'4" myself. The pics with Misha and Jim, I'm wearing sneakers, because my feet hurt from wearing the heels the night before, and in the pics with Jensen and Jared, I have 3" heels, which sadly only made me about as tall as my friend who actually is pretty tall. But there were no apple boxes available. I actually felt bad for the guys, because the did make an effort to crouch down for a lot of people, and they probably did couple hundred squats by the end of the pics, some of those with fangirls glommed onto them. LOL. My quads burn in sympathy. *nods*

hey ya *waves*

you`ve got great pictures *G*, and great stories also.
I wish I`d been with you when you went to the Viper Room. We made the con concert, thinking we, maybe, could discover new music to listen to. But as I told you already, I didn´t like the music, at all *yikes* so we left early.

haha, the Misha story is just too good. He tried to chase me also. Or, he didn`t try, he did. He didn´t want to let me go for the picture of him and Jim Beaver only. But I moved too fast, he couldn´t grab me, ha. I was almost at the door again when he final gave up ;D

What you said about Jensen, and the reason why he acted like he did, we have our own thoughts about the reason why also (and for once it`s nothing dirty *snort*). I/we think it`s because he`s settled, and just plain happy.

Danneel has been at the LA con. When it was our turn for Jensen`s autograph (early during the autograph session, I went with my friend who`s been in row 3) she was standing on the other side of the room (Jared`s side). I guess people who`ve lined up for Jared didn`t see her because she was standing behind them.

anyway, it`s been an awesome weekend, with awesome memories, and it was even more awesome to see you again *hugs you tight*

I wish you were with us at the Viper Room, too! I think you would've liked it, and there were other people from the con there, so I think there had to be other transportation. I will admit that, while I enjoyed the show, the ride there and back was a harrowing experience. I told my husband I'd never complain about his driving ever again. :///

You see, now, you're the only person who mentioned seeing Danneel. A few of the people who went to the jam session were asked if she was there, and they said, no, she wasn't, but then Clif tweeted that everyone was there, and well, you know what Jim tweeted. So, she must've had like her cloak of invisibility working overtime. I do think it did the guys some good to spend some time with their ladies. And Jensen's comment at the breakfast panel about the next phase of his life probably involving his couch and his wife just made awwwwwwwwwwwwww.

It was awesome to see you again. I wish we'd been able to spend more time together. It seemed we were always catching each other going opposite directions, but we'll always have Denny's. LOL.
