Yesterday was one of the best days of my life. I am so happy that I got to experience it. Lets see....
My dad and I went to the book signing. We left for the train early...But the station we went to was so packed and there was no where to park. We drove around for an hour trying to find somewhere. It was nuts. So we went to another station and got the train to NY. When we got to MSG we took a cab to the Barnes and Noble and got our wrist bands. They directed us to the line and we waited there all day. and I mean ALL day, lol. about 7 hours. We were like 46th in line, so it wasn't bad. I'd say about 500 people in all showed up. So we just chilled outside along the curbside all day... It was okay. The people around us were pretty cool. We talked to this one guy for a while. The signing didn'st start till like 7. Around 6:30, Anthony Kiedis' dad (Blackie Dammett) was walking down the street. and I'm like HEY!! and he was like "hi" haha. I was so mad that I didn't have my camera in my hands! So then he was walking back a little bit later and I took his pic, and then I asked for a pic with him. We put our arms around each other and smashed the sides of our faces together and my dad took a photo of us. It was so cool :) I was like "thank you!!" and he said your welcome. :) That was one thing I wasn't expecting! lol.
So anyway, there was so many stupid rules at the signing! Like no pictures, no signing anything else expect the book (which I knew about...boo), the book couldnt be personalized, etc. They were so lame! But whatever... I had to ask him to sign my tattoo anyways. (I have a RHCP logo tattooed on me and I wanted him to sign it so I could have his autograph tattooed on me) So they finally let us line up inside. We snapped a few pics from a distance even though we weren't supposed to. I hope they come out! He looked so beautiful. It was just awesome seeing him sitting there. ahh! haha.. So I had my letter I wrote to him, I had to kind of smuggle it up to him because they were checking everything. I stuck it inside my jacket so security wouldn't see it. I didn't hear this part, but the guy behind me and my dad did... but Anthony pointed out my tattoo (a small pink skull and cross bones wearing a bow on my boob) and said to this girl next to his dad "look at her little tattoo, that's cute" OMG! haha. How cool is that?! lol. So it was finally my turn...My dad went up and shook his hand, as did I.. I started handing him my letter and said "I wrote this for you if you could please read it." and this woman standing next to him (I think it was his publicist) tried taking the letter from me... but Anthony snatched it up and said in the most sincere voice "of course I will." awww...yay! So then I said "if you could please do me a huge favor and sign my tattoo so I can have your signature tattooed on me" and he said "They are being really strict about that....but you have a really cute tattoo" and he pointed to my one on my boob... and I said "Oh, not that one! This one" and I showed him my rhcp logo. He said all innocently "But...I like the other one better..." LOL. My dad told me he was tryin to say I have a nice rack. I *did* make sure I was wearing the best cleavage shirt I could possibly find. lol... So anyway...I asked one more time for him to PLEASE sign it...and his publicist was like "miss, NO!" EW I wanted to hit her. She's all old and bitchy. So anyways...it was okay... I started to leave, but I forgot my book! (I am so dumb, lol) Anthony was like "wait wait!!" haha. I went and got it from him and he said "It was very nice meeting you" And I said the same...and that was it. He wasn't a dickhead...he seemed very sweet and genuine. He was very upbeat and smiling the whole time. He complimented my tattoo and my "rack" lol..which is sooo awesome. I just listened to him on Howard Stern, and he seemed awesome on there too... He wasn't a dirtbag or sleezy or anything. He was also on Conan last night and I had to stay up and watch it of course. I am just so excited I finally had my dream come true. Even though he couldn't sign me, it's okay....cuz I really believe he was so nice... and the fact that he grabbed my letter before his bitchy ass publicist did... and how he said "of course I will" so nicely... It really makes it all worth while. I felt so high afterwards. I cried a little bit in the cab ride back to the train station. It was just amazing and I couldn't be any happier.
Oh my God...I had another wonderful anthony Kiedis experience TODAY as well! Okay...so I knew he was going to be on this TV show (its only on Direct TV) called "Daily Download" on Fuse. I had emailed them in the beginning of the week to see if the audience was full, and they wrote me back saying that it was...but to call on Thursday after 1:00 to see if there were any openings... So Today at 1:01 I called and there was openings!! He asked me how many people I was bringing, and I just said one. I didn't know who to bring! I called some people but no one could go :( So I begged my mom, and she agreed so we just hurried up and got on a train and went! It was so spur of the moment and awesome! I thank my mom so much for being there for me, cuz I really didn't wanna go to NYC all alone. So we got there right on schedule...we were early actually. We waited outside with everyone else. and not many people were there at all. I guess since it wasn't broadcasted really, not many people knew about it....I'm not too sure. Some people were there who were at the book signing yesterday, so we all talked about our experiences. Everyone was so pumped :) I talked to this one guy a lot, he was pretty cool, and so was this other chick. We finally went in, had to be searched (metal detector) and fill out a form. then we waited for a while in this room and they explained to us what we have to do. Like when to applaude and be loud and scream during the show. So we went out on the set and they sat us all down. We were all in random seats...they had us sitting on these block type things... And they said we would be rotating thruout the show so we wouldn't always be in the same seat. So finally the show began and Anthony came out, looking beautiful of course. we all screamed our asses off. They talked about his book, and basically just asked questions and stuff... I had a decent seat, so I was happy...Then they cut to commercial and they moved some of us...I had to go towards the back more. Anthony looked in my direction and smiled :) Then they came back on, talked some more (my voice hurts so much from screaming so much, cuz we had to yell and clap every time we came back from commercial) So then they moved me and the guy RIGHT up front. Anthony Kiedis was practically breathing on me. LOL. It was amazing. So I was sitting there staring at him, and he looked down at me, smiled this sweet ass smile and said "hi" haha! I just smiled uncontrolably and said "hi!" haha... and the guy next to me asked Anthony if he remembered him...Anthony said "Yeah, I remember both of you from yesterday." then he looked at me and said "One eyed skeleton" and I said "No, she has another eye, its just smaller!" and I showed him. (talking about my skull tattoo on my boob, lol.) He just laughed. It was SO awesome! So they came back, 5 people in the audience got picked to ask a question. They had us write questions on index cards before the show, but mine wasn't chosen :( The producers picked the ones they liked. But it was okay, cuz I was way close to him and those people weren't. lol. So then Anthony's time on the show was over...and he left the room. He left his Starbucks coffee cup on the floor, so I took the lid. LOL. I am so happy about that. I am so weird, but I just think its so sweet that I have something that touched his lips!! :) I will have that FOREVER! So then they had some stupid shit on the show...and that was basically it. I'd say the audience was only like 25-30 people. I am so happy I was a part of it! And he remembered me!! That is so fucking cool. He is such an awesome guy...so real! I love the way he moves when he talks, and how he would randomly make funny faces...like having big giant eyes one minute...looking all psychotic, then smiling, and just being crazy. So after the show was over, he had already left :( I asked security like 100 times if he REALLY did leave... they said he did though. So mom and I hopped the train back to the station and came home. I had the worst headache, but it doesn't even matter. Nothing matters to me right now. I am still in awe and I think I will be for quite some time. My dream came true 2 days in a row. I feel like I need to see him tomorrow now. lol. But that's not happening... But anyway, today I was on TV and got to see him *again* and talk to him again. I am as happy as a pig in mud!! :)
