Part the Second here
Still on a fangirl squee-filled high we headed on up the escalator to see who was upstairs signing autographs. The two tables right straight ahead from the escalator were the two non-Marsters folks I was most interested in: Adam Baldwin and Kevin Sorbo. It was cool the way they had it set up with the lines coming from around the backs of the booths so that the walkways didn’t get too crowded. There was a little bit of a line for Adam, but not too bad. I’m guessing that everyone who headed from his panel right up to the autograph line had already gone through.
As with most of the folks there, he was charging for autographs, but that didn’t stop us! lucky13charm & I had the Serenity mini posters from the Minneapolis screening that Ron Glass had already signed, and blond_bear had one from a Toronto screening that Sean Maher had “signed.” When she put that down for Adam to sign he looked at the illegible squiggle & said “Who is that? That’s Sean, isn’t it?”
The three of us proceeded to tell Adam that we’d all seen the movie twice and we couldn’t wait to get to see the finished film. I’m sure there was some more fangirl-ish blathering, but I couldn’t tell you what exactly. lucky13charm & I also got our pictures taken with him, and for mine he was holding Moose, of course! I was surprisingly not nervous when talking to him. Probably because of my James encounter.
After meeting Adam we contemplated going through the line for Kevin Sorbo’s autograph, but at that point he was leaving to take a quick break. So we made our plans with BB to meet the next morning and we headed on back to the hotel. I hopped on the net to post my “OMG! James smiled & called me love” entry, and then since I was too wired to think about sleeping yet anyway I grabbed lucky13charm’s TicketBastard ticket to go exchange it for her, and wandered back to the convention center with camera, but no moose.
Once the ticket had been successfully exchanged I decided to head upstairs to see if there was anything interesting going on. Kevin was back in his booth, and there wasn’t much of a crowd at this point, so I stopped by to see if I could get a picture. Even though I didn’t have my cash on me, so I couldn’t buy one of his photos, he was really nice & gracious. After we were talking about Minnesota for a little while I was going to take his picture & he insisted that I should be in it too and had his assistant take the picture. (For the most part, the assistants just helped with crowd flow & money taking. There weren’t taking pictures for people.)
There aren’t too many people who turn out to be taller than they look on tv, but he’s one of them! At this point I decided that it was time to call it a night and I headed back to the hotel with a it stop to grab my pillow & blanket. Back in the room lucky13charm & I threw the DVD of James’ 2004 Halloween concert & Q & A session in the laptop & settled in to watch the question session. I already knew at this time that I was going to be asking him about the Guthrie theater, but lucky13charm had no idea what, if anything, she would be asking. Sleep started taking over so we set the alarm and crashed.
