First Celebrity Citing!

So I had my first celebrity siting today! It was seriously the best celebrity I could have seen too. While working with the Yellow Power Ranger I saw... JOEY FATONE! yes thats right a man who was in my all time favorite boy band. A man that if given the chance I would hug and tell him how very happy his music made/makes me.

Unfortunately I was not able to do that or even acknowledge who he was because I was in costume and cast members are not allowed to treat celebrities like they are anything other than a normal guest. Which is oddly ironic considering we (meaning cast members not necessarily me) escort them to rides and stuff backstage because we don't want them getting mobbed.

But back to my Joey sighting. I had to help out with the Power Rangers because for whatever reason they were down an attendant and I was working at Cars which means I was going to help with the Rangers anyway (because that is what the closing attendants do at Cars... help the PR attendants with their last set.) So I was with the Yellow Ranger and the Captain came over and said something about not worrying about asking the man sitting on the planter thingy that the Yellow Ranger stands by to move because he was obviously sitting with a sleeping baby. I glanced at the guy but then went back to attending.

A rather amusing thing about me is that when I am working I have complete tunnel vision. I don't really pay all that much attention to the guests outside the group that is immediately near me whether that be with the characters or who is up next in line. Which means that it is totally possible to sneak up on me but that is a bit of a side note.

The Captain waved me over a few mins later and mentioned that the guy he had told me not to worry about was Joey Fatone. He said that they had made eye contact after he walked away and that he had recognized him because he had met him before. I then freaked out a little on the inside and mentioned that I was a HUGE fan back in the day. He said that if I was a fan I would recognize him but to be sly about checking him out. Well check him out I did and I am not going to lie my stomach did a flip flop. Seeing him totally made my day!

So I spent 30 mins alternating between working and geeking out. Mind you I had to geek out on the inside. The Captain said I held it in very well. lol

Thats all for my celebrity siting. It was awesome and probably wont be topped.

Friends!... and enemies?

I know I haven't posted in a while which sucks but I really haven't felt like I have much to talk about. My days are mostly the same and nothing really happens that I think anyone would want to hear about. I know that probably isn't true so I am planning on writing a day in the life blog.

However that is not what this post is about. This post is about the random people I have met through work. The ones I love and the ones I want to shank with a very pointy spork. I am going to give everyone pseudonyms because there is an off chance that they might read this. And that would be awkward when I go back to work and they then know that I either want to give them lots of hugs or want to strangle them slowly.

So enemies first. I shall call this person Bob. Why Bob?... well it is kinda close to the real thing and I can't come up with anything creative at this point. So why do I hate Bob and want to shank him with a spork or strangle him slowly? Quite simply because he is stupid and worthless and really really annoying. He is pretty much useless when it comes to his job. Working with him is like working by yourself. He just stands there and looks stupid. I have absolutely no idea how he managed to get the job he has. You have to have social skills to have his job but he has absolutely none. He is just plain socially awkward. Laughs at somewhat sexual things like a juvenile. Like when a child has a Woody (as in Toy Story) toy and I say "I see you have a Woody toy, is he your favorite?" and Bob giggles or tells me SHHH! Seriously.. that isn't even funny. Its juvenile and annoying and FRIGGIN STUPID! So that is Bob. Working with him makes me angry. :/ grrrr

Now on to people I love! YAAAAAAY! There is a lot of people I could put here because I love a lot of the people I work with. However I only have amusing stories/reasons for loving a select few. The first person is J (very creative.. I know). J is in entertainment (like me) and I love him because he makes me laugh. He does things that he is totally not supposed to but are quite amusing in places where guests could in theory see him doing them. (If that isn't cryptic I donno what is..) Another person I lurv is M. Ninja (oo creative! :D) He also does funny stuff in places which make the things he does funnier. He also dances with me and gives me hugs. I am totally a sucker for hugs.
Last but so totally not least on my lurv list is Red. I adore Red. I seriously just want to squish them. Red really just makes me happy. When I was having a really bad day in the not so distant past seeing Red just made the day better. It was still a poop-tastic day but it was slightly better because I got to talk to Red. Red, like J, makes me laugh. They poke fun at me which for what ever reason makes me laugh. They are super sweet. When I was not feeling well recently they rubbed my shoulders. It didn't really make me feel all that much better but it was nice that they tried to make me feel better. This person took me under their wing and helped me do my job while doing their own. If that didn't make me love them then the fact that they play with me while doing their job would have. Seriously this person is awesome. And if this sounds like a romantic love... it is not. It is more of an "I want to squoosh you" love. I really just want to hug them because they make me happy. :)

The common factors between the people I love? They play around with me, make me laugh, and give me hugs. Obviously it is quite simple to win my heart. Perhaps more people should try to.... It would at least be fun for me! :D


... So I realize that the above post is rather cryptic and useless to pretty much everyone outside of myself but I must say that I don't really care. This is just going to have to be one of those posts for me so I will remember the things that matter to me now smack in the middle of my program.
