Well, yesterday Lance and I went and saw the Goodies - both at the instore signing and the Still Alive stage show. It was one of the BEST times I have ever had!
Had great fun waiting for Tim and Graeme to arrive at the ABC shop in the GPO - met up with fan club members AC, jazzk and mazzanda. Also met an Asian girl who was so overwhelmed at meeting the Goodies she was violently trembling and couldn't speak at all.
But I saw them! I met them! I touched them! THEY KNOW MY NAME!!! Admittedly, they've most likely totally forgotten who I am now, but the memory shall stay with me forever!
Lance took lots of fantastic photos for me, some of them he has already posted in the forums. I might post the others later on, but they have myself and other people in them who I'm not sure would appreciate their photo being splashed about the place.
Twas great fun to meet up with other club members and put names and faces to call signs and pictures. Found it funny the way AC identified everybody by their avatars. To all other fan club members who showed up for the signing - why did you not make yourselves known? Surely the giggling group of Goodies groupies (oh the alliteration) could have been none other than your fan club kin?
Tim and Graeme were incredibly nice and appreciative of their fans. Ac, jazzk and myself were incredibly jealous of mazzanda's backstage pass *grr...*
And the show! The show was great fun and an incredible pleasure to watch. But it deserves a post of its own, so I'll end here and continue my GOODIES rant next time.
Yay for you junius that you got to meet them!!! I'm sure i would've been like the asian girl that you mentioned-probably would've gone into melt down mode!You even touched them-arrgghhhhh!!!(The one person i would probably faint over is michael palin(of course)).And did they smile at you??? .And are the fan club people quite normal-or does anyone have 2 heads or anything???haha.Were there heaps of people at the signing?Will look forward to reading your next entry about the show.
I think I'd faint if I got to meet Michael Palin as well! Or Eric Idle!
Yes, they smiled at me! And not the confused, 'never-show-your-fear' kind of smile either! They seemed genuinely pleased to meet me and the other fans that were lined up!
All the fan club people seem normal - well, AC's a bit strange but don't tell her I said anything, OK? Just kidding! They were all great, very nice and funny girls.
There were quite a few at the signing but not as many as I thought there might be. TBT and GG ended up leaving an hour earlier than they were scheduled to because the line sort of died down. But *I* got to meet them and touch them and talk to them and everything, so I'm happy!
Shall get around to typing up that second journal entry sometime soon... oh, I'm such a procrastinator...
