SO UM.  
I JUST MET AMBER BENSON.

AT A BOOK SIGNING SHE WAS DOING HERE TONIGHT IN SACRAMENTO AT A BORDERS WHERE MY SISTER WORKS AT.

SHE READ FROM HER NEW BOOK, ANSWERED QUESTIONS ABOUT ANYTHING, I CHATTED WITH HER WHEN SHE WAS SIGNING THE BOOK. I GUSHED AT HER AND GEEKED OUT ABOUT VARIOUS THINGS LIKE BUFFY AND HER INDEPENDENT FILMS AND ABOUT JAMERS MARSTERS KISSING GUYS AND HOW SHE WAS ON SUPERNATURAL PLAYING A VAMPIRE AFTER BEING A WITCH ON BTVS, AND WE HUGGED AND I GOT A PICTURE OF US TOGETHER FROM MY CRAPPY CAMERAPHONE.

I WAS SO NERVOUS I WAS SHAKING, SHE TOLD ME "AWWW DON'T SHAKE!" AND OFFERED ME CHOCOLATE. :D

MY LIFE YOU GUYS, I CAN'T EVEN.

Apparently shit happened on Supernatural tonight. I'm just gonna reading spoilers and reviews about it, to be honest. I am on a high. AMBER BENSON > EVERYTHING ELSE RIGHT NOW. F'REALS.

Awww, you're so qt! I love Amber! She sounds like such a darling person =D
As for Supernatural, ugh fuck that noise. You can read my recap post and see why I am so angry right now.
Renée: Victor!Topher. FTW!rogueslayer452 on October 23rd, 2010 04:08 am (UTC)
SHE REALLY TRULY IS, OMG! She's very personable, like once I started talking to her I couldn't stop rambling about a bunch of things. And she's the sweetest person ever! She listens to you and smiles and talks back, we conversed about her being on SPN and about James Marsters and her singing and it was like, omg. Why can't all autograph signings be like this?

I read your post. Glad I'm not watching, I mean you said it was okay but right now I don't want my squee of the day to be harshed by whatever the fuck happened in the episode. SO LET ME SQUEE WITH MY AMBER BENSON HIGH!

Sweet! That is just awesome!
Renée: Cylons. Happy endings are love.rogueslayer452 on October 23rd, 2010 05:37 am (UTC)
I swear, she's one of the nicest loveliest person ever.

Every actor should do these kinds of things, because this was free to get a chance to ask her questions, talk with her and have an autograph as opposed to the hundreds of dollars spent on a convention. ;p
Tracy: Cas Minutesalexwhitman25 on October 23rd, 2010 04:41 am (UTC)
Good news? CAS IS BACK NEXT WEEK.
Renée: Castiel. Guardian angel.rogueslayer452 on October 23rd, 2010 04:47 am (UTC)
JUST SAW THE PREVIEW AND I AM EXCITED! YAY MY ANGEL IS BACK! \O/\O/\O/

It should be sad that's all I care about these days. But unless this show gets its act together, I'm not ashamed in saying the mytharc is far more interesting than whatever melodramatics they're doing with the brothers.
Tracy: Cas BAMF Entrancealexwhitman25 on October 23rd, 2010 05:17 am (UTC)
Pfft, I'm not ashamed. I will proclaim it loud and wide. I'm only in it for Cas, Crowley, Balthazar and the other awesome supporting characters. The brother rehash of issues is on life support when it should be DOA.
Tinkagwaevalarin on October 23rd, 2010 05:10 am (UTC)
Aww! Amber. She sounds like such a sweety.
Renée: Misha. !!!!!rogueslayer452 on October 23rd, 2010 05:32 am (UTC)
She truly is. I knew she was amazing but I didn't realize just how utterly sweet and wonderful she is in person. Like, her smile is so genuinely sweet and she's so personable, you go up to her and you feel like you can talk with her for hours. <333

Definitely worth the experience.
Nicole Anell: buffyverse - angel/cordy hugnicole_anell on October 23rd, 2010 05:23 am (UTC)
OMG YAY!
Renée: Cylons. By your command!rogueslayer452 on October 23rd, 2010 05:31 am (UTC)
SHE'S SIMPLY DELIGHTFUL AND ADORABLE AND I ACTED LIKE SOME A BABBLING FOOL AROUND HER! LOL

But really, such a lovely experience. I got to chat with her more than I do with any other actor at a convention, and this was for free! :D I already loved her from before, but this made me realize how fangirly I can be. She was so sweet and lovely and, gahhh!
kaiyotekaiyote on October 23rd, 2010 06:01 am (UTC)
I AM SO JEALOUS OF YOU RIGHT NOW. AND SHE SOUNDS SO SWEET :*

OKAY, BUT JEALOUS, SERIOUSLY.

WHY IS EVERYTHING I SAY TO YOU IN CAPSLOCK?!?
Renée: BSG. Six. Made of awesome.rogueslayer452 on October 23rd, 2010 06:14 am (UTC)
EVERYTHING IS BETTER IN CAPSLOCK. TRUFAX.

SHE IS REALLY SWEET, SUCH A LOVELY HUMAN BEING I WAS A BABBLING IDIOT AROUND HER. BUT SHE APPRECIATED IT I THINK BECAUSE SHE TALKED WITH ME AND I JUST, YEAH.

IDK HOW MY LIFE GOT LIKE THIS. I USUALLY ENVIED MANY PEOPLE WHO GOT TO MEET ACTORS AND SUDDENLY I'M THE ONE BEING ENVIED. HOW IS THIS EVEN REAL LIFE?!??!

Renée: BRB EPIC SHIT HAPPENING!rogueslayer452 on October 23rd, 2010 06:12 am (UTC)
I DID ACTUALLY! :D

When I went up to her at the table I told her that she had a lovely singing voice and that I loved the song she sang in the BTVS musical episode, especially in the duet with Anthony Stewart Head. Which she gushed over him in particular with that song. <3 I also told her that she should join with Joss and make a musical like Dr. Horrible or something, she laughed and said that would be cool.

:D :D :D :D

SHE IS A DOLL AND I LOVE HER EVEN MORE AFTER MEETING HER. S;LDFAKSFADSF
Gaby: son of a bitch!squaringkarma on October 23rd, 2010 07:14 am (UTC)
AWESOME. Now we have a one-degree-of-RL-separation between us because I met Amber at a book signing in June '09! ;)

I am behind on SPN. Did not see 6x04 last week because I didn't want to watch without my glasses (couldn't find 'em until I got back to Dad's :P). Did not see 6x05 because I haven't seen 6x04 yet (but also because I got home around 9:45 due to a birthday celebration for my grandma).
Renée: Castiel. I'm almost out of minutes!rogueslayer452 on October 23rd, 2010 07:46 am (UTC)
OH YAY! \O/ ISN'T SHE THE NICEST, SWEETEST PERSON EVER? <333

The thing I'm finding is that these episodes aren't really connected to each other, so you could easily watch 6.05 without having to have seen 6.04, even though from what I'm gathering this week's episode seemed more or less the same kind of deal we've already known. Sam isn't really Sam, there's something else happening with him, the brothers have issues. All the same stuff that hasn't been resolved yet. The only new stuff were the whole vampire dealio and making fun of Twilight bits.

Although it makes for really uneven scattering of the episodes. There's no sense of fluidity, at least from what I'm seeing.
Gabysquaringkarma on October 23rd, 2010 09:17 pm (UTC)
Was Adam there, too? He was at the signing I went to.

Hm well, we'll see...
Renéerogueslayer452 on October 23rd, 2010 09:47 pm (UTC)
He wasn't, unfortunately. However her illustrator for the book, Sina Grace, accompanied her and was fantastic to talk with. He even took time to draw little sketches with his signature in the book. We talked about Halloween and Sacramento and traveling to San Francisco (which is where they are going this weekend for more book signing) and all of that random stuff, and was just great.

Amber was also talking with little kids too, she's just too precious. ♥
Courtwordsleadmeon on October 23rd, 2010 07:34 am (UTC)
That is amazing! YAY YOU! Your squee is infectious and totally elevated my mood! :D
Renée: Six. Relaxation.rogueslayer452 on October 23rd, 2010 07:49 am (UTC)
Awwww, thank you. And I'm glad that my random spontaneous use of capslock squee has uplifted you in some way. ;D
Court: Meg *giggles* - liz_guerinwordsleadmeon on October 23rd, 2010 07:56 am (UTC)
Well, in my weird-wired brain I was all happy for you, then remembering the handful of times that my one friend has managed to get me on the phone with celebs while at conventions (I haven't met anybody in person yet, but I've talked to Francis Capra, Jason Dohring and Alona Tal) which are of course equally squee worthy moments, so between the two I was all perked up, so thank you for sharing! It's nice to know Amber's a total sweetie. Not that I doubted it, really.
no good either: [Buffy] Buffy & Taraalanna_zero on October 23rd, 2010 09:51 am (UTC)
OMG that is awesome!!! She is one of my favorites, for real. Totally cool that you got to meet her! I hope the picture you got with her turned out to be good! :D

And oh man, Supernatural? That doesn't sound so good. I haven't seen the ep yet, and now I don't know if I want to... :(
Renée: BTVS. Buffy Summers.rogueslayer452 on October 23rd, 2010 11:21 am (UTC)
Even if the picture isn't that great, the memory of the event will forever be kept in my heart. I know that's corny to say, but it's true. Just getting the chance to talk with her and geek out over stuff (in my normal rambling kind of way) was the best encounter ever. ♥

Some say it's alright, but from what I've heard you don't really miss much of anything if you skipped it entirely. I just read the highlights of what happened and that's all I needed to know.

Aw, that sounds awesome! Amber always sounds so nice!

Shit did go down on Supernatural, and it is all Sam's fault! But surprise!Cas next week! Really, I find this encouraging. No one had expected to see him from the spoilers or episode descriptions, so who knows how often he's going to be snuck in. :)
Renée: BTVS. Buffy Summers.rogueslayer452 on October 23rd, 2010 11:16 am (UTC)
Amber is so genuine and very sweet. I love her even more from this, seriously. <333

I love seeing surprise!Castiel, it makes me feel better about all the shit that's happening on the show.

I APPROVE OF THE GIF YOU ARE USING! \O/

Yeah, SPN is definitely kinda going backwards at a scattered pace and it's like, what on Earth are you doing show? Seriously. :/

Yay!

Renée: BTVS. Buffy Summers.rogueslayer452 on October 23rd, 2010 11:41 pm (UTC)
She is such a sweetheart. <333 And another fun part is I met other BTVS fans there too, we were all kind of geeking out about things while waiting for her. It was awesome. :D
Ariellodessa on October 24th, 2010 04:14 am (UTC)
Wow. I was totally there too.
Renée: Misha. !!!!!rogueslayer452 on October 24th, 2010 04:41 am (UTC)
OH MY GOD, FOR SERIOUS? WHERE WERE YOU? SITTING OR STANDING? I swear if we kinda met but not really I am gonna be all like, seriously?
Ariellodessa on October 24th, 2010 04:46 am (UTC)
Seriously! I was sitting in the back row (stage right). I cannot believe we were in the same small group and didn't actually meet each other! *facepalm*

But we did both get to experience how classy and gracious and lovely Amber is at least.
Renée: Lady Gaga.rogueslayer452 on October 24th, 2010 05:11 am (UTC)
I was sitting in the second row from the front (stage left) and you heard the girl who asked Amber about the possibility of working with Joss Whedon again and mentioned the Avengers? That was me. :D

I swear, we possibly had made minimal contact without knowing it! *double facepalm* So bizarre. But yes, isn't Amber amazing? She's so lovely and heartwarming and, omglove. <333
Ariellodessa on October 24th, 2010 05:14 am (UTC)
Such a surreal experience. It is such hilariously movie-esque missed connection isn't it? My group kind of kept to ourselves or it is possible we would have figured out who each other were.
