This is how I geek out

"TAKE THE EFFING PICTURE ALREADY!"

I'm very glad we got to go geek out together yesterday. :-)

No kidding. Here's the story:

We stood in line for over an hour to get Alan's Tudyk's autograph. (You may remember Alan from such films as Serenity, I Robot, 28 Days, and of course, the television show Firefly.)

When we finally got to Alan, I had to hand my camera over to some guy who was the Official Picture Taking Dude (OPTD.) OPTD couldn't figure out how to work my camera so after explaining it to him a couple of times, I walked over to Alan. Alan and I stood there with our best picture taking faces on whilst OPTD became more and more retarded with my camera. I kept saying, "You have to hold it down, there's a delay." And OPTD's response was always, "I AM holding it down!" Finally I said, "Hold it down HARDER." Then Alan said under his breath, "Hellooo." Which is just when the guy finally pushed the button hard enough to actually take the picture.

So that is why we have those ridiculous looks on our faces.

Shucks, I missed you. You probably got there right after I left. Here's my picture of Alan:

So, this could very well give away how uncool I am, but isn't that Steve the pirate from Dodgeball?

Yep. They had a pile of Steve pictures for sale if you wanted to get one autographed.

ha - he was hilarious in A Knights Tale as well - and a source of a major crush for me too...

*sorry these pics only give you cool points, not dork ones.... (and the top one makes me jealous, so there)

I also loved his character in "28 Days" which starred Sandra Bullock. "Look at my package! It's so huge!" He was hilarious in that film.
