Comic-Con 2012: 4 Days to Remember

Here goes my annual Comic-Con rant, ready? Let's do this.

Day 1:

Wow, I've had such little sleep that I can't even remember what happened this day. Okay, well, my sister and I both got up at 2:30 AM, left our house at 3:30 AM, and arrived to the Con by 4 AM. A weee bit later, my sister's friend Ren met up with us in line (we were in line for the exhibit hall) and while they were talking I got bored, so I just plugged in my earphones and listened to my music. WELL (don't get too excited, I didn't encounter a celebrity), at the exact moment I decided to look up, Caden, the guy we met at the Nerd HQ last year whom we lost nearly all contact with, was walking right past us! You can never forget a face like Caden's. Well, here's the weird, but slightly funny part. Caden added both my sister and I on facebook. Well, the day before Thursday, Elaine and I went to go look at Caden's facebook page to see if he was going to the Con, and it turns out he deleted us! So we were like, "Wow, obviously we're not cool enough to be his friend. REJECTED." and we figured we were never going to see him again. But that all changed that gloomy Thursday morning, and I was debating whether or not to shout out his name (cause you know, he did unfriend me) but I finally called out "Caden!" and he looked over and was just as shocked to see us as we were to see him! And we chatted for a while, caught up with what he's been doing within this past year (amazing things he's doing btw) and we gave him a brief update, and we let him sit with us because we didn't want him to go all the way to the back of the line. And from there, my life has changed. It deserves a whole separate post all together, so I'll save that for later.

I'll talk about the Con experience now. Well, I first met Lucy Lui and Johnny Lee Miller (hotttie). I know this is going to sound super corny, but whenever someone says I look remotely similar to Lucy Lui, that is my absolute favorite compliment. And the fact that she is so incredibly sweet, well, that just means she's perfect.
Also, I got a signing for the "Breaking Dawn part 2" cast, and my sister and I were both super excited but then after waiting 2 whole freaking hours in line, it turns out that it's the most pathetic signing I've been too. I didn't know ANY of the people signing. Not a single one. Way to play us, Summit. Way to play us.

After that, we saw Jerry Trainer from ICarly, and even though it was quick and crowded, I got a picture and an autograph! Yaay!



And I think that wrapped up my opening day at the Con.


Friday was fun as well! Got to the Con at 6, and my sister and I split up for a brief moment and I toured the entire Con by myself. I found the one booth in the 3600 area that a lot of C-List actors were signing autographs and taking pictures for 30 dollars. Well, that's BS. So I made friends with the security guard Jesse (cool dude, very cool dude) and he allowed me to talk to Kevin Sorbo! He was the lead actor in a Lifetime movie called "Last Chance Cafe" and in an episode of Psych. He was so nice!

And then after that, I met the model with all those tattoos. His name is Rico, and he models for Tonner... I believe? He was extraordinarily kind too!

Once I was done with that, I went to go find my sister, and I see the cast of "The Walking Dead" signing autographs! I don't watch that show, but I've heard so many good things. And so the main guy went to the side to take a few quick pics with fans, and I fought my way to the front and got one!

After that, I met up with my sister, and we went to lunch. After that, I met up with Caden at the Nerd HQ because he had a ticket to go get an autograph for Rico the model guy and I guess he loves him but he had to work at the Nerd HQ, so I went to go get the autograph for him.

And then out of no where we found out that Anthony Bourdain was doing a signing for his new book, so it was only normal that we just HAD to meet him!

Oh! This part is so embarrassing, but long story short, I thought Eddie Mcclonick was this guy:

When he's really this guy:

Oh, I also met Lou Ferrigno who was very sweet! But pics were 40$$ -______-

Day 3:

Saturday I got to the Con later than normal. 10:00, I had to sleep in guys! And so my sister and I kinda just roamed around a bit and then at 2:00 we headed over to the Nicklodean booth and we got to meet the Power Rangers! Helloooo Hector David Junior (yumm).

Oh! While we were waiting in line to meet the Power Rangers, my friend Steph spotted out Ben Schwartz from "House of Lies" so we started following him and then my sister tapped him on the shoulder and he was so willing to take a picture with us! He was really sweet and cute.

I also met Nicholas Brendan for like, the fifth time. He was so sweet (as always) and let me take a picture with him, free of charge!

After that, we went to the Nerd HQ because I had to go give Caden his autograph and camera back. We met up with him there, and our intention was to stay till 6:30. Well, we ended up leaving at 7:15. Why? Because Caden is the funniest human being on this planet and his jokes and stories had me going literally for 30 minutes straight. It would have been longer, but we had to go!
