catching up

The past couple of weeks, for some reason, just wasn't in the mood to post. Guess I was in a mini-funk as all my big fun-stuff is over with. The weather is cooling here and autumn has arrived. I love autumn but the decreasing sunlight was probably a factor as well. Anyhoo, let's get on with it.

EyeCon! 48 hours filled with laughter, mocking, squeeing and lots of inappropriateness! I was bummed that I missed the Ghostfacers panel but YouTube pulls through for me once again. AJ and Travis are hilarious and HOT in real life, who knew?! Especially AJ. Jared was his gorgeous ginormous self as per usual. And I finally end up with a decent photo op!



Lots of love to faninohio, phetch, shadow_of_doubt & soonercharmed. Y'all are bitches & whores but that's why I love you.

Last night, bauersgirl and I attended the annual Police Games as the Idols were the entertainment for the evening. The performances were scattered throughout the event. The entire Top 10 were there, they did a few group songs, the top 3 had solo performances and the Top 5 did the Beatles' medley. Sometime during the night, I turned into a full-on Drew fangirl, LOL The games itself was pretty fun. There were 3 events -- obstacle course, tug-of-war (did you know there's a strategy to tug-of-war?) and a relay for men & women. There were representatives from Toronto Metropolitan, York Region, Peel Region, Durham Region, City of Barrie, Firefighters, Correctional Services and Military Police. York won the men's relay -- York Region represent!! =)

The reigning Canadian Idol, Theo Tams, in bright yellow LOL



Drew =)



Afterwards, some of the Idols hung around to sign autographs, take pictures. Earl, Sebastian (not a great singer but damn, he's pretty in real life!) & Mookie (who had a constant group of teen girls surrounding him).







The best part though was Mookie & Earl racing against each other on the obstacle course and I was quick enough to catch it on video once I realized what they were doing. They didn't do the full course as some of the equipment had already taken away. Mookie wins by a hair. BTW, that tire weighs 250 lbs.



After that, we headed out for Nuit Blanche -- the all-night, outdoor, interactive art festival. Only ended up seeing a few of the pieces cause it was just so freaking crowded! I couldn't stand it anymore.

This morning was the Run for the Cure and Kalan was there was to sing the national anthem & to participate. As the starting area is ridiculously close to me, I walked on over to see if I could find my fellow Kalan fans who were participating and I needed to check out his new haircut. The curls are gone, there's some scruff going on, I like it.



John Barrowman posted pictures of him & Scott with their dogs and OMG how cute are they?!

And, um, I think that's about it from my end. =)

Your photo op is so cute!! Bitches and whores ROCK!

You're an endless celebrity fun machine! That video of a rocker dude trying to run an obstacle course in stovepipe jeans is pretty funny.

OMG!!!111!!! John Barrowman has a puppy Phetchpup!! Harris is so cute (as is he and the other dogs). Though fitting, it's an English not American Cocker.

We make a cute couple, y/y? :)

It's the same dog?! When I first saw it, I thought it looked liked Phetchpup but I know nothing about dogs but anyway, that's so cool!

I've watched it about a dozen times. Harris is so cute! Phetchpup wants to be his American girlfriend!

We totally need to hook those 2 up! They could make a long-distance relationship work. Could you imagine, you & Barrowman could be in-laws! Hee.

BTW, I checked out Matt Nathanson and I like. Now, I'm being a pirating jackass and snagging all his stuff.

OMG! That video of John Barrowman's puppy is the sweetest thing ever!! I love his baby talk.

Your photo with Jared is so so good. You both look so gorgeous and happy. It could be your engagement photo!

It is kind of a bummer when all the things you were excited about and looking forward to are over. Hope you're feeling more perky soon.

Love the photos. Oh, to be so close to Jared. I bet he feels hard and smells good. *wistful sigh*

The sun is out today which is good :)

Considering that I was like the 93rd person in line or something, Jared still smelled really nice.

Thanks! Hopefully I can come back soon. Work's getting busier now which sucks (stupid clients who don't give us their stuff on time which means we have to work overtime).

Of course Jared & I look good together. It's meant to be... he just doesn't know it yet ;)

Earl had a good lead but I think he ran out steam at the end. It was really close though!

Scott is a hottie and I would be lying if I hadn't thought about that!

I'm still in shock that Mookie could lift up that 250 lb tire!!

My fav pic of the night!



I didn't know Kalan was going to be there! And OMG, I can't believe he actually cut off his curls!! He's totally unrecognizable!!! But I think I like this look better =)

I got your e-mail, your pics turned out great! Aw, look at that big ol' smile on Theo.

I think Kalan looks better without the curls, too.

Woo is that the real foto with you and Jared? Ahoy I thought him and Jensen are supposed to be doing filming for Supernatural?

And oh my... Kalan! You look different!

PS: So while you were in Taiwan during this past summer, did you know that they DO have Supernatural aired there? Holy smokes man!

Oct. 5th, 2008 07:55 pm (UTC)
Yep :) It was a photo op from EyeCon last weekend. The boys are still filming, I believe Jared said they're up to episode 7 now. Jared arrived in Orlando really early Sunday morning and flew back to Vancouver late afternoon.

SPN is being aired in Taiwan? That's so cool! Is it subtitled or dubbed? A dubbed SPN would be so hilarious.

Ohhh i see i see! =)
boy! i wish i could see them that close in person also!

yah, spn's being aired in taiwan... but i only know this certain one channel that airs it though, and it's called... ANX (Taiwan)?

http://www.axn-taiwan.com/buzzsites/supernatural2/

They're like only on Season 2, so heh!

And yes, it's subtitled instead of dubbed. Dubbed shows or movies are so... last century man lol.

I don't know why no one does these cons in Vancouver where so many shows are filmed. There's a con in LA next March and both boys are scheduled to be there. A possibility?

dubbed shows or movies are so... last century man

Hee. Guess I showed my age there, didn't I? Well, thank goodness for that.

Great pics. I think 'endless celebrity fun machine' covers it pretty well too, also. :)

Kalan with scruff! I am so cutified... wait, probably not the reaction he was expecting. Definitely a step in the right direction, though.

Also pleased to finally put a face to Mookie, as those dang signs all over Rosedale (they even put one on the Yonge railway overpass down there!) had been starting to haunt me. Still don't quite get it, but reassuring anyway.

I think Kalan will be described as 'cute' for many years. He's just got that kind of face.

Mookie, for a 17 y.o., is really quite good. He's really good at performing classic rock. I'm surprised he didn't go further as, from the looks of last night, he had a good portion of the teen girl votes.

Okay, that Mookie/Earl race is the cutest thing EVER, I didn't know Kalan had cut his hair but that just drew a lot of "omg omg omg!" from me, and York region represent! lmao.

Oct. 5th, 2008 11:07 pm (UTC)
I'm just glad I moved fast enough to catch the race on camera. Kalan mentioned getting his hair cut on his MySpace so I had to get up early to check it out!

Was that a fun weekend or what???? God, we laughed, didn't we? I love you and wish we could hang out more (and R too...man, I miss her too!!!!). I'm SO glad you got the awesome photo op photo this time! How cute was Jared being all impressed you made it this time?? Hee. We still haven't turned you into a Steve fan yet, but we will.

WOW, Kalan looks awesome like that! Is that your photo??

Was the Police Games in the Sky Dome?

*hugs* Jared loves me, what can I say? :)

Kalan looks good, doesn't he? Yea, I dragged myself outside bright and early and headed down to the Run for the Cure cause I knew he was going be there.

Look at you, recognizing the Dome!

Your icon *still* cracks me up.
