Meeting The Guildies!
I spent my Friday at work, worrying about how I might not make it to Golden Apple Comics on Melrose in time for The Guild comic book signing. Felicia Day along with the rest of the Guildies hosted a cocktail party inside the comic book store at 6:00 pm that night. The event was scheduled to end at 8:00 pm! I made it there by 7:30 and was way lucky to be the last person in line for the signing. Whew!
I was pretty nervous to meet Felicia and everybody. I just have so much respect for that girl– she’s a geek, smart, an amazing writer, and an even more amazing actress. What’s not to look up to?
The autograph started with Robin Thorsen (Clara), Sandeep Parikh (Zaboo), Jeff Lewis (Vork), Amy Okuda (Tinkerbella), Vincent Caso (Bladezz), and then Felicia sat at the end. Everyone was soÂ accommodating and full of smiles. Especially Robin, she told me- “Looks like they saved the best for last!”
I seriously wanted to squeeze them all in giant hugs- but I settled for babbling like a fangirl and telling them how much I enjoyed them and the show (I couldn’t think of anything cool to say the whole time I waited in line… such a nerdling I am). Although, I did ask Vincent to do a Bladezz sexy face for Giselle, who couldn’t be there.
I told Felicia she was my hero and we kind of had a gushy-gushy conversation. She is so incredibly nice in person that I have more respect for her now. I am looking forward to seeing and supporting more of her future projects.
