O_O!!! Holy crap...

September 28th, 2008 (08:25 pm)

A dark, empty road streches out before me. The first glimmers of sunlight are giving the completly fog covered road an errie gleam as "Highway to Hell" comes onto my radio...yes...today was going to be a great day!


HOLY CRAP! That convention was AMAZING. I have never had so much fun in my entire life. I got to the convention around 8:30 a.m. Head up the escelator and WHAM! I'm in the center of convention mania!! Meet a friend from online, she shows me where to go for registration and away we go. Get my registration packet and get instantly in-line for my photo op with Jared. Get split up from friend as she's got a different ticket and now I'm wishing I had someone else with me. That was quickly fixed when I started talking to the nicest lady from Columbia. We actually ended up spending most of the day together. Anyway, finally get into the room where the photo ops are going on and get my first glimps of Jared and Jim. Wow, so cool! As I get closer my nerves start to work up a little, but are quickly pushed back down when I remind myself that Jared isn't going to bite me and it'll be fine. Get a little closer and a small ten-year-old girl goes in for a photo op. Jared promptly pickers her up and sets her on his shoulder. All 60 + women in viewing range of this, myself included, go 'awwwwww!!!!!' and flip out because he's amazing, and he just turns bright red and blushes, then laughs. He's so awesome!

People are having him pose in party hats, with hockey sticks, in odd poses with pretend guns, in super mind exploding Sammy poses and FINALLY I get up to him. I am not nervous at all. He turns to me and gives me that amazing smile and I go "hi! I'm Holiday!" and He replies "Hello! I'm Jared" to which I go "Yup, knew that, other wise I wouldn't be here." And he laughs and grabs me into a big hug before the picture is taken. Get my picture and get another hug and a "good bye!" and as soon as I start to walk off I start shaky. Holy crap, I just hugged freaking Jared Padalecki!!! O_O Walk out, take a deep breath, calm down and go down stairs to promptly call Jade. Squee, freak out, tell her this is insane and then tell her that I'll call her back shortly. Head up stairs back to the vendors room, take a look around, realize that I'm goign to need more money, and go pull another $80 to add to my $60 plus on top of the $125 I've already spent. For being so cheap, this did not phase me! I bought some awesome glossy pictures, two shirts (one of which is for Jade) and a few more autographs! YAY! Call Jade back and go "The next voice you'll hear on this phone shall be that of Jim" and then proceed into the line for Jim. Talk to him for a moment, he signs my autograph then takes the phone to talk to Jade. I'm impressed and so pleased because he looks SO HAPPY talking to her, like he's speaking to an old friend. I get the phone back, jump into the next line for Fred. This man is so sexy for an older guy, wow. He talks to me for a few minutes, said he loves my name (Holiday) and then takes the phone from me to talk to Jade. while he's talking to her and telling her that he has enlisted me into his army he's making these "you're my bitch now" eyes at me that are KILLING me. He promptly slaps a "Fredric Lehne" sticker on my boob (I got groped by the Yellow-Eyed-Demon!!! SWEET!) and tells Jade she may never see me again, then hands the phone back.

yay! Awesome. I head back out and just chill, talking to Jade. Every few minutes though, Fred would randomly come walking by me. And eventually I was convinced (with the help of Jade) that he was stalking me, so I asked if he was, and he said yes, to which I laughed and said "fine by me!"

After all this was the Q&A with Jared. That man is SO FREAKIN FUNNY! I will posts a clip of it when they start surfacing, because I can't recall everything, however a few things are:

"I litterly just flew in from set... I walked into wardrobe and said 'guys, I'm going to Orlando, I need clothess.' So, everything I'm wearing is Sam's.. The shirt, that's Sam's, the pants, yup, those are his too, the shoes are his, so is the belt, the underwear...yeah, those really are his too. The socks are mine, but that's it."

"*makes wooooooo noises into the microphone* It's a whale!"

"Jensen and I clean house together!"

"I'm not a hobbit! I don't even have furry feet! Now you guys gave me a hobbit complex."

"I think everyone at the end of the series should die. *NO! Screamed from fangirls* Sam kills Dean? *NO!!!* Dean kills Sam? *NOOO!* Impala crashes? *NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!* Bobby kills Sam and Dean *WHOOOO!!!!!!!!YEAH!!!!* HEY! You guys are mean!!!"

After that was the autograph session that ended up getting cut really short to the point that he couldn't even personalize anything anymore because everyone was taking so long and he had to be on a plane by 3:30 (it was now 2). So I finally got up there, he signed my piture, and I gave him the beanie hat I made for him and go "here, this is for you, I made it, I hope it keeps your head warm." He looks up at me with this really humbled look and goes "Wow, thank you, it's awesome." then he grins, and gives me the most FLIRTTY wink and grin. So much so that when I walked off, the ladies standing behind me all went "ohhh!!!! You GO girl! He's SO checking you out!" Yeah, so I got flirted with. How cool?

And that ended my day! I plan to write him a letter to thank him for coming and being so awesome, and to tell him that I hope that beanie cap fits!

Here are some pictures:

Ahhhh! My first taste of WAR!

January 14th, 2007 (08:37 pm)
relaxed

current mood: relaxed

Sooo! This weekend, I got my first tastes of being in a shield wall of about fifty guys, staring down the field at another shield wall with the same number of people. What a chill! Let me start from the begining!

This weekend, I went to Scots/Welsh War down south of Deland Florida. I climbed into my armor at about Nine am and proceeded to the field to test to be authorized! I passed with flying colors, it wasn't really that hard. Just a standared, defend while someone attacks, then attack while they defend, then fight it out to the death. I murdered the poor guy who was my authorization fighter. Poor guy. lol After authorzations, I was thrown onto the field in to a shield wall of about fifty men. They stuck me in the middle of it. As I took my first look down the field and caught sight of that huge shield wall, I started to wonder what the hell I was doing and why on earth I'd gotten myself into this. The order for forward at a walk was called and the fifty of us started moving together, our shields inter-locked, shoulder to shoulder, the mixture of our armor, and shields clashing with our oponents sounded like the thunder of Gods....and then I was in the frey! Oh my GOSH! There is NOTHING more amazing then smashing head on into a shield wall, and taking out about five guys as you press your way through, swords, spears, glaves and arrows flying past you. *shudders* It's SO AMAZING. We fought four field battles like that, and I got a grand total of five kills during that, which is pretty darned good for a first time fighter on the field. My knight was pleased. After the field battles we prepared for a portal battle, which is where we have rope set up and you can only fit about three guys across with shields, and you have to press your way through and take your oponents side. Again, I was placed up near the front, and we started the fight...... First the archers went, hiding behind the shields and trying to take out the other archers as well as the spear men. When the archers finished, it was the shield walls turn. On charge, we pressed ourselfs together and just bowled into the other side. Bodies were piling up around us and in front of us as people died and I manged to get my feet traped and went down on my knees, and as I was struggling to get up, some 200lbs of guy in armor fell on top of me, forcing me backwards over my own feet, effictivly taking me out of the battle. I drew my shield up over us just in time as another fell on top of the guy on me, so I was trapped beneth about 400lbs with a huge fight still going on around us. We were being used as a stepping stool, and a shield. Ahhh, it was GREAT!!! We had about four more fights like that, and I got another three kills. Last was the resurection battle, where you go out and try to take control of a flag, and you do this for an hour. If you get killed, you just head back to the res point, touch it, and head back out into the battle. I managed to get two more kills before I was just too worn out. By the time I finally finished fighting and took my armor off, it was five PM. Oi that was a long day. And I have a battle wound to show off! Below is two pictures of the worst bruise I got this weekend. It was during the resurection battle, and some guy managed to catch me off guard after I had killed one of his buddies...hehehe.





Ahhhh, I love fighting........

A Different Christmas Poem

December 10th, 2006 (02:27 pm)

My knight sent me this through e-mail. It is extremly touching and I encourage you to send it to your friends and family. Please enjoy.

A Different Christmas Poem

The embers glowed softly, and in their dim light,
I gazed round the room and I cherished the sight.
My wife was asleep, her head on my chest,
My daughter beside me, angelic in rest.
Outside the snow fell, a blanket of white,
Transforming the yard to a winter delight.
The sparkling lights in the tree I believe,
Completed the magic that was Christmas Eve.
My eyelids were heavy, my breathing was deep,
Secure and surrounded by love I would sleep.
In perfect contentment, or so it would seem,
So I slumbered, perhaps I started to dream.

The sound wasn't loud, and it wasn't too near,
But I opened my eyes when it tickled my ear.
Perhaps just a cough, I didn't quite know, Then the
sure sound of footsteps outside in the snow.
My soul gave a tremble, I struggled to hear,
And I crept to the door just to see who was near.
Standing out in the cold and the dark of the night,
A lone figure stood, his face weary and tight.

A soldier, I puzzled, some twenty years old,
Perhaps a Marine, huddled here in the cold.
Alone in the dark, he looked up and smiled,
Standing watch over me, and my wife and my child.
"What are you doing?" I asked without fear,
"Come in this moment, it's freezing out here!
Put down your pack, brush the snow from yoursleeve,
You should be at home on a cold Christmas Eve!"

For barely a moment I saw his eyes shift,
Away from the cold and the snow blown in drifts..
To the window that danced with a warm fire's light
Then he sighed and he said "Its really all right,
I'm out here by choice. I'm here every night."
"It's my duty to stand at the front of the line,
That separates you from the darkest of times.
No one had to ask or beg or implore me,
I'm proud to stand here like my fathers before me.
My Gramps died at ' Pearl on a day in December,"
Then he sighed, "That's a Christmas 'Gram always remembers."
My dad stood his watch in the jungles of ' Nam ',
And now it is my turn and so, here I am.
I've not seen my own son in more than a while,
But my wife sends me pictures, he's sure got her smile.

Then he bent and he carefully pulled from his bag,
The red, white, and blue... an American flag.
I can live through the cold and the being alone,
Away from my family, my house and my home.
I can stand at my post through the rain and the sleet,
I can sleep in a foxhole with little to eat.
I can carry the weight of killing another,
Or lay down my life with my sister and brother..
Who stand at the front against any and all,
To ensure for all time that this flag will not fall."

"So go back inside," he said, "harbor no fright,
Your family is waiting and I'll be all right."
"But isn't there something I can do, at the least,
"Give you money," I asked, "or prepare you a feast?
It seems all too little for all that you've done,
For being away from your wife and your son."
Then his eye welled a tear that held no regret,
"Just tell us you love us, and never forget.
To fight for our rights back at home while we're gone,
To stand your own watch, no matter how long.
For when we come home, either standing or dead,
To know you remember we fought and we bled.
Is payment enough, and with that we will trust,
That we mattered to you as you mattered to us."

Christmas will be coming soon and some credit is due to our U.S.service men and women for our being able to celebrate these festivities. Let's try in this small way to pay a tiny bit of what we owe. Make people stop and think of our heroes, living and dead, who sacrificed themselves for us.

Whootness!

Stolen from jadeblood and wenhamified

Two things about me!Collapse )

And! From jadeblood

Witch-King
You are the feared Witch-King of Angmar! You are a
villan among minions. Maybe that is why you
are the Lord of the fortress of Minas Morgul.
In the days of glory, you were the greatest of
kings...then Sauron corrupted you with one of
the nine rings, and now you are the Witch-King.
You are fearsome, even amongst Saurons other
minions. No man can slay you, and you serve
the most powerful dark force in Middle-Earth,
possibly even greater than Saurons Master,
Morgoth! Not a bad resume!


Evil Minions in the Lord of the Rings
brought to you by Quizilla

I rule!



Aragorn, King of Gondor!
Aragorn! You are Aragorn, also known as Elessar,
the heir of Elendil and thus the heir to the
throne of Gondor! You are honorable and wise,
fluent in the tounges of Elves, dwarves, and
men. May the Valar be praised, you had the
strength to resist the temptation of the One
Ring. You will be a mighty and respected king!
All hail!


Which of the 9 members of the Fellowship of the Ring are you?

Whahahahaha! Whoot!
