First half of Saturday CreationCon 2009

This morning we had Richard's panel and then Aldis' panel before lunch. After lunch it's Jim and Misha!

Richard was hilarious! He joked about being the "call at the last minute" replacement guest and then spent a lot of time talking about Changing Channels and working on that, how he loved the plot twist, and really enjoyed the sitcom scene a lot. He really enjoyed all of them, but especially that. Oh! And how about that it was ME who was yawning during his panel and he saw me and called me out on it! hahahaha. I just about DIED of embarrassment when he said that!

His funniest story was that after he filmed the CSI scene, the guy who was another cop left and said, "hey I left something for you as a goodbye gift." So Richard goes and sitting in his trailer was a pair of pumpkin colored bikini briefs and he's all WTF?! So he goes around asking to see what was up, and then the guys in the production department give him the actual gift - beers and a thank you card. So, then he naturally assumes that this is a prank from Jared and Jensen. And he joked about having to look up at them to ask and they looked down and said no it wasn't them. So, he can't figure it out. So finally, a guy from the department comes and says, "look we know whose underwear it is." And it's Misha's! hahahaha and Misha told him it was from a fan! And he was eating soup and spilled it all on his outfit, so when they washed it they thought that the underwear was from Richard, so that's why it was in his trailer! So he goes to the underwear and writes something like "This smells like Cass" on the back of it hahahaha. WIN.

Then Aldis was on, who was hilarious! He spoke a lot about Leverage, the technical parts of filming the fight scene in Supernatural, there was a lot of talk about him now knowing how to do some of the things they're doing on Leverage. And he told a prank that Beth played on everyone where there were stickers on their trailers and Chris had "Daddy's girl" and Aldis had "Princess" and Jeri Ryan had "Warning: Blonde Thinking" or something and it took them a week to figure out it was Beth. And then they cut parts of the stickers off so Chris' now says "Daddy" and Aldis' is "Prince." But he said he was having fun on Leverage - and seems like everyone there likes playing pranks too! Aldis was great and called his girlfriend when a girl asked "who would play your leading lady" and he said "my girlfriend" and he told us "this is getting me major brownie points." hahaha.

When I was going back to the room, Aldis was in the same elevator as me. He seems like a really nice guy. I said his panel was hilarious and I enjoyed it.

Misha interrupted Jim's panel and he's dressed head to toe in a suit with tie! And looking damn fine. But he said "I have a question. Don't you think it's rude that all these people come here and you can't even dress up for them and wear a tie?" or something like that. It was hilarious!

But yes. Smokin'! hahahaha

ETA: Shannen and I got our tickets for next year. I personally think that they will eventually add Jensen, since they were able to get him for all the other 2010 cons, despite having not announced him AT the con when they happened. So I still have hope...and if they announce him later, I'll be prepared with money for photo ops. I wanted to keep my seat and table for 2010!

Misha is hilarious and just...snarky and sarcastic and completely loves fucking with everyone during these things. It's fantastic!

We had out autograph session and right when we got up to Misha, he said "I think...I have to go to the bathroom." Well, Shannen had already gotten his signature, so we go, "no, we don't want to be split up! We're going to go eat right after this!" haha, joking, of course. And Misha goes "well, I don't want to hold YOU guys up!" haha so he signed my autograph "I don't want to keep you waiting." And then Shannen and I were saying we were hungry to RIchard, and so he signed my autograph "Go eat." hahaha

Next up, dessert party!

2nd Part of Saturday ChicagoCon 2009

We took a break before the other two panels for the day, and Shannen and I sat in on the auction and snarked, which we ALWAYS do. I boo-ed at Twilight, but Gary heard some other guy sitting like 25 rows away, and called him on it, and not me hahaa.

Jim was up next, and he spoke a lot about having to deal with Bobby now being in the wheelchair, joked that he was lazy and that's why he did it. He spoke about his book and how it has helped others and was a bigger deal than he thought it would be. And he spoke some about Harper's Island and something he just finished with John Wayne's grandson, who happens to live across the street from him. He joked around a lot, wore a t-shirt that said "kill them all and let God sort it out" or something. I think it's interesting how interested and serious he is about Bobby being in a wheelchair, and how it brings a "reality" to it as he called it. Misha broke out into his panel and asked why Jim couldn't get dressed up and "at least wear a tie" since Misha was all formally dressed up. It was hilarious!

Then came Misha. Oh, what a guy. Hilarious, sarcastic and dry as hell, and witty, and just...fucks with everyone up there. He never even really answers any questions, he just diverts them and says whatever he wants to say. He insulted Australia and the people down there and how he was pissed he didn't get to see any kangaroos, joking completely of course, and spoke some about how boring it was being an intern in the White House. He started his panel talking about the bikini briefs story, and then later on during his panel Richard came out and they bitched about the pumpkin bikini brief story hahaha and together, they set the story straight. It was too funny! He spoke about yogurt and so many random, crazy things. He seems interested in how people become fans of things and do stuff like this and was asking us questions about it. (I swear, he's going to wind up writing a thesis about it hahaha) and mentioned a couple of the pranks that they've done and also mentioned that his first day of Cub Scouts he went with long, flowing platinum blonde hair and painted fingernails hahaha

After that we had photo ops. I had a duo of Misha and Jim, and it was super rushed. We'll get them back tomorrow afternoon.

Sorry this is so short and choppy, but that's all I can remember for the moment!

I think I really need to invest in a new camera in 2010, because there is this one line in ALL of my photos! Like, the lens is broken or something, so they all look like that with this line down the center of them.



Desert party is the last thing for tonight and then it's time for the boys!
