Drake Bell was excited to meet me. :>  
He was! It was quite adorable. I didn't make an arse of myself, either - though I really wasn't expecting him to give me a geography quiz. :P Silly boy. I know that no one else reading my LJ cares about what happened, so I won't go into anymore details here other than to say that he's a sweet guy, the concert was great (although I got sunburned as it was OUTSIDE AT NOON IN GEORGIA IN JULY. HELLO, WHICH BRAINIAC THOUGHT THAT ONE UP?!), and I stood for over four hours and, while a bit stiff and sore the rest of the night, I DID IT.

I had a lot of fun with anamchara, and now I'm having a blast with dezzikitty and longtimegone (her new apartment is SOOOO nice!). We had no internet here yesterday and we were all jonesing a bit, but luckily the net is back now. :)) Hopeless, the lot of us. We had dinner with allysonsedai last night and it was so awesome to see her, too! Then we hung out at B&N for a while like the geeks we are. ♥

Tomorrow, dezzikitty and I are heading back to Georgia, where we will hopefully meet up with anamchara again. The fun thing is that my phone interview for the LA job is tomorrow evening, so that's going to put a bit of a kink in our plans, but I couldn't exactly say no, could I? If they want to talk to me at 3 am, then I'll be on the phone at 3 am. But hopefully it'll all work out.

And then, back home on Wednesday! Only two days of work and then, I really really MUST begin to pack like mad. Ugh.
I feel: cheerfulcheerful

Okay, I'm confused. Why did you meet Drake Bell? I must have missed something.

BTW we're big Drake & Josh fans in our house. Practically the only sit-coms we watch are on Disney and Nick. Obviously this means I have no life I live with a kid who's almost 10 :D

Yes, you really haven't been reading my LJ very closely lately. This is practically all I've been talking about. LOL

I came to Georgia to see Drake play a concert here at a mall near Atlanta. If you didn't know, he has a CD. There was a meet and greet afterwards, so I stood in the line for 2 hours to get his autograph and talk to him for a bit. I could go into why I became a fan - it started with an RPG, doesn't EVERY odd thing start that way?! - but yeah, I'm regressing in age. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!! That's so cute. I've never traveled quite that far to see someone play...okay, I'm ignoring the time I was in Dallas anyway for work, and I hitched a ride (with a woman I knew online) 200 miles to Austin so we could see Monte Montgomery (yeah, my boy, at tad closer to my age than Drake ;) at the Saxon Pub in Austin. Okay, ignore that. Otherwise I've never traveled more than 150 miles to see anyone (which was, again, Monte. And I'm not even considered a groupie!!).

I'd been wondering why you had all those icons that really, really look like Drake. Er, because they are :)) Drake's a cutie and a good musician. I have to say I actually like his music, and I don't like a lot of music made by teenagers these days.

I haven't either, but I was feeling the need to do something crazy.

Haha, yes, they ARE Drake. And he's 20, FWIW. Really, every year helps... but I swear, seeing him in person... he looks WAY young - but that might be because he was sporting a lame attempt at a mustache and I REALLY wanted to tell him to stop trying so hard to look older. But I restrained myself and said mostly non-idiotic things. :))

Hahaha, I am old lady and I felt SO much better when he turned 20, LOL. I love it when he looks older because I feel less perverted.

I understand not wanting to feel like a perv, but my crush on him is not... really like that. I'm not even sure how to explain it! Especially after meeting him... He's adorable and I'd love to spend hours talking to him about music and acting and stuff, but... *shrugs* I guess I'm weird?
