CELEBFLASH ULTRA: BUFFY!!!
Well, today I hit an absolute high. Maybe even the top of the ladder...
Buffy, the bloody, Vampire Slayer!!!
Sarah Michelle Gellar herself... in the flesh... no Freddie Prince (not that I care).
She's standing in line at the restaurant to get on the waiting list. I turn, see her and my knees go weak. I seriously cannot move!
Cut to: A bit later.
Her party is seated (she's with her mum and some friends), and I overhear her asking Natalie for crayons for the kid with her. It just happens today is the day we're crayonless, but being the manager I find some, take them over, and just start to gush!
It's all a blur, but it went something like this:
"I know this is unprofessional, and I've never done this sort of thing before, but I really wanted to say that I love your work. I just moved from Washington, DC and you were at the top of my list of people I wanted to see. I love everything you've done. I love Buffy! Thank you!"
Her friend makes some joke: "You think that's?... She's my cousin Bertha."
I get a bunch of "Thank yous" and "You're so sweet" and I finally leave them to their lunch. My heart is racing, the knees still knocking, and I'm almost on the verge of tears (uh?).
Cut again to: Some time later.
I'm doing some managerial sorta stuff at one of the terminals, and Sarah Michelle's mum comes up to me and asks if I had anything I wanted Sarah to sign, Sarah was just wondering? WOW! Of course, no DVD, no MOC action figure, not even a decent piece of paper. I grab a pen, tear a bit of paper out of the receipt terminal and head on over.
Matt -It was so nice to meet you.Best wishes,Sarah Michelle
I gush some more, say thanks and byes, and shake her hand.
And I'm floored. WOW again! How nice and sweet, and... well, that whole expereince just blew me a-bloody-way!!!
Now, if only Spike were to show himself....
