Asylum 4

I went all the way to England so that Lucifer could tear a big ol hole in my pack of gum.

well, that wasn't the only reason. X)

SO, I HAVE RETURNED.
SICK, NO LESS.
DAMNIT.

i can't tell if its con crud, travel crud, your best friend was sick before you left crud, or some other kind of crud, but its crud nevertheless XP laaaaame. and while i'd love to write up a con report for the AMAZING weekend i had, i'm having a hard time braining this week due to dizziness, throat pain, all around tired to the boneness, and falling asleep with my eyes open. yikes. never done that one before.

BUT, on the plus side, i escaped from London with a volcano quick on my heels *breathes* and made it back pretty much in one piece aside from the whole sick thing. and really, its a small price to pay for the wonderful time i had. i met some incredible human beings, from actors to staff to just plain ol regular folk alike, and i will cherish that for years to come. i had a great deal of trust given to me as staff this year and i'm pleased to say that it was maintained throughout the weekend. i got to assist the actors in their comings and goings, speak with them one on one whenever they felt like a conversation, and generally make sure they were ok and not being harassed. which was pretty damn cool. i worked my ass off as much as they let me, and i think i came away the better for it <3

again, i'll go into more detail later when i can think straight and i'm not hopped up on cold/flu meds. work itself is hard enough to get through right now, yeesh.

DISCLAIMER OF DISCLAIMING
to be clear, YES i talked a great deal with the actors as a staff member and personal assistant, and NO i will not be sharing everything that was discussed. i was granted a great deal of respect for both their time and their words (and the fact that people tend to forget i'm in the room when they're speaking for some reason), and that respect will be upheld. what i'm going to be reporting on is what happened to ME. cause its my journal, and that's what i do. you want gossip on these guys? go somewhere else.

oogg, and that's where my braining power ends.

although, i wasn't kidding about the gum thing. Mark Pellegrino (he plays Lucifer on SPN) wanted a piece of mint gum in the green room, so i offered him mine. (cause i carry it EVERYWHERE) it was one of those trident packs with the back flap thing that always opens in your bag and dumps them everywhere. he, however, was so tired that he didn't notice this and he tried opening it from the side. so i stood there for a minute, debating just how rudedeadly it would be to point out to Lucifer that he was doing it wrong...when he finally looked at me, defeated, and said he was having some issues. whereas i then hesitantly took the opportunity to point out the great big flap on the back.
he got his gum, after pausing and giving me this look that's difficult to describe aside from how tired, amused and defeated he was at the same time. i gave him a smile of condolence before he thanked me for the gum and went to his q&a. lol, the poor dude.
on the other hand though, since there was now a great big hole in the side of the pack, my gum wouldn't stop spilling all damn weekend.
worth it? probably.

more stories to come X) especially about the artwork and some AMAZING and EMBARRASSING blackmail worthy pictures XD
this is my karma, making up for the past few weeks of suck with a single weekend of amazing. i srsly don't know what i did to be so lucky <3
