gluttons for punishment

After swearing we would never ever subject ourselves to the madness, bauersgirl and I, once again, braved the craziness that is the MMVA red carpet.

Being a little smarter this time around -- we only waited 4 hours instead of 6! -- we once again ended up behind the media people.  It was hot and sticky.  I got sandwiched between a set of parents on one side and 2 self-proclaimed "the biggest fans of Fall Out Boy" on the other side.  This is what I heard in my right ear for a good 5 minutes:  "PAAAAAAATRIIIIIIICK!!!!  PEEEEEETERRRRRR!!!  OMG OMG OMG!!!  JOOOOOOOOOEEEEE!!!!!  OMG OMG!! I LOVE YOU!!!!!"

While we waited, we did get a chance to catch some rehearsals.  Could barely see Rihanna but I like her song, "SOS".  City & Colour performed "Save Your Scissors".  And Hedley with "3-2-1".  I could only see Jacob (who was shirtless) and he was pretty normal.  No over-the-top spazzing.  Sang the song well.  This is the Hedley I like.

Some screaming for the VJs -- "TIIIIIIIIMMMM!!!  OMG he's sooooo gorgeous!!!"  "Sean, I love you!!!!" (OK, he's not a VJ but he was the runner-up in the VJ search)  "Sarah!!!"  "Deeeevoooonnn!!!" who was wearing some hella skinny jeans.

Oh yes.  How could I forget, who I dubbed, Hot Guy.  One of the crew members, I had the pleasure of watching Hot Guy pushing & setting up barricades (nice calf muscles & biceps) and sweating and generally looking hot.  Unfortunately, no picture of Hot Guy.  Maybe next year?

OK, picture time!!  All pictures are courtesy of bauersgirl cause stupid me didn't check the memory card (it was only a 64 MB card which meant 3 pictures and the card was full). 

This was my turn to squee!!  Shawn was one of the first celebs to come down the red carpet.  In fact, I thought we missed him cause it looked like he just zipped by the media and headed into the building.  But watching the show, Shawn mentioned that his twin brother was with him so that was probably it.  And dear heavens, does that boy have beautiful blue eyes.

Amanda Bynes.  She's a sweetie.

Amy Lee of Evanescence.

Let's play, "Spot the Backstreet Boy"!  I wonder why Howie was there?  Guess he had some free time, LOL!

Jay Manuel of America's Next Top Model and now, Canada's Next Top Model.

Elisa Cuthbert aka Kim Bauer.  Boy, is she tiny.  Could barely see her myself.

Jesse Metcalfe.  Best known as the sexy gardener on Desperate Housewives.

Ah, Jacob Jacob Jacob.  Two of his bandmates showed up in handcuffs.  And there was mooning.  In case you somehow missed the Hedley tattoos 2 of the boys are sporting on their asses, Jacob gives us yet another view:

That poor girl in the white headband.  Inches away from Jacob's butt.  That is going to be one ugly tattoo once Jacob's ass loses its firmness (I confess, he does have a nice ass).  BTW, he was totally covered in the front cause he was tv.  

Nelly Furtado.  Not a fan of her new song, Promiscuous, but I do like Maneater.

Nick Lachey.  He's short.

Hey, it's Donna!!  (what was her last name?).  The whole time they were on the red carpet, the BH90210 theme song was running through my head.

Simple Plan.  We have Pierre and Chuck and... I only know those 2.

Of course, the last one to arrive, Paris Hilton.  That dress was ugly.  The crew were literally ripping up the red carpet as Paris made her way down.

OK, that's it!!  Lots of other celebrities but no pictures -- Metric, Yellowcard, Fall Out Boy, Mobile, Skye Sweetnem, Rihanna, Mo Pete, Trisha Helfer, The Trews, Kevin Zegers (boy, is that guy cute!  I'm definitely going to have to watch Transamerica now), a whole bunch of rappers, Massari, Kardinal Offishal & that's all I remember.

The TIFF red carpets are going to be a piece of cake after this!!  And I will have my regular camera back by then.

ETA:  The Edmonton Oilers lost  =(

I'm always so jealous when you go to these! Shawn Ashmore is dreamy, as is Jesse Metcalfe! And I love that both Elisha and Paris were there, sucker for House of Wax as I am.

Hey, I think I have that icon too!

Shawn Ashmore IS dreamy. I had to explain to a woman behind me who he was: "You know, Iceman from the X-Men movies? He played Terry Fox!" LOL

Damn skippy!! We know how to work that shit!!

Did bauersgirl point out Justin Guarini? (I know that's spelled worng) Poor guy...is he Toronto's only camera man?!

I'm impressed you braved the heat for that long without the promise of Kalan or Kiefer!! (Heh...I'd have totally done it with you!).
Jun. 20th, 2006 01:50 pm (UTC)
Yes! Justin Guarini!! ahahahahaha At first, I wasn't too sure who she was referring to yet I was able to choose the right guy on the first try.

We're insane. No Kalan or Kiefer but Shawn was a pretty good replacement.

Oh, I didn't know you were serious about Hot Guy, I thought you were joking! I should've took a pic, sorry!! You liked him even with the mohawk??

I can't believe we missed Greg from CSI (Eric Szmanda) He was there and we totally didn't recognize him! =(

And I agree, Paris wore the fugliest dress ever

See ya there next year...but at 5:30!!! ;-)

>>I can't believe we missed Greg from CSI

I just had someone ask me if I took any pictures of him. I don't remember seeing him at all.

Oh, Hot Guy. When I was typing out my little recap, I thought, "wouldn't it be nice to have a pic?" Oh well.

I don't normally watch hockey, but I did last night... Bummer! After the butt-whupping they gave Carolina last game what happened last night? The Oilers just looked so tired out there. At least we can be proud a Canadian team made it that far.

I only flipped in & out of the game. Saw the score was 2-1 at one point and was sad.

Next year, the Leafs!! (we wish, LOL)

Donna's last name is Martin. I'm so thrilled that show is back in reruns. Every weekday at 3 pm.
Jun. 20th, 2006 10:05 pm (UTC)
Martin!! YES!! Thank you.
