Recently my friend @tipsy_daisy and I headed up to Vancouver, BC to hopefully see some sparkly vampires, maybe some wolves or swans, and definitely some monkeys.
|Vancouver is a beautiful city!|
We roomed with @red_bella and stayed up until 2:00 am talking and catching up. Our room had a king size bed and a couch with a hide-a-bed. @red_bella was taking the hide-a-bed so as we went to our room. We heard @red_bella scream. The hide-a-bed had folded her up like a taco. So she decided to sleep on the couch.
|Taco good for eating but not to sleeping.|
|Ugly Naked Guy and Ross|
We went out for lunch and had heard there was filming going on at the Cullen house so we thought we might catch a glimpse of someone. But no luck...roads closed and we talked with the security gal for awhile.
We were supposed to met up with people for early dinner before going to see 100 Monkeys but greater Vancouver traffic did not work in our favor. We made it back to hotel at 5:30. Grabbed a bite to eat, got a taxi and made it to the Venue to stand in line for awhile. @kintail and her friend was in line in front of us and she found a great area to the side of the stage it was a little higher up than the floor so we had a great view. I think people thought it was a VIP area because it was just our group there.
@cupcakegirl76 was there with her sister and brother in law. She did a great review of the evening on her blog. We also met up with @Lorabell, @mandysmind and others.

@cupcakegirl76 posted this video on her blog and if you watch at :42 This is the moment in time when the whole trip was worth it! I was singing along to Orson Brawl (slightly off key - sorry people around me), jumping and then magic happened...Jackson made eye contact with me! I waved to him and totally squeeeed! This is my blog and my reality so I believe he was really making eye contact with me!
My friend @jaymes805 got to meet them in LA a few weeks ago. Read about it here. If you read about it then you know about Pirate Girl so I asked everyone around me to yell out pirates for the improv song but as you can hear from the video it was only me and my big mouth yelling.
I tried Jamie...their improv song about Charlie Sheen - Winning was too funny!
It was a great night! Have I mentioned that I love them? I love LOVE them!!!
The next day they were doing another performance at Neptoon records at noon. I thought we were going to be so late and miss them but we made it in time and that place was so packed I couldn't really see them while they were performing but tried to take pictures over people's heads.
Check out pentictongrrl's videos from Neptoon on YouTube .
Another great performance and then a meet and greet. It was great meeting the entire band! I had them sign pictures that I took at their show back in July and I gave them a copy of the photo. Which I think was kind of weird to do now but oh well. Uncle Larry was delightful and so kind. Ben J. seem a little shy but was nice. Oh course Jackson was so sweet I tried to talk to him about meeting Jamie but their people moved me along and I couldn't finish the conversation. I think confused Jerad with the giving him a picture of himself but he was nice. I have to say that I have a bit of a crush on Ben G! He would be so much fun to hang out with! I told them that I loved them because they make me feel young and Ben G. said, "But you are young!" Aweeee he was very sweet! I was a bit bummed that we couldn't take pictures with them but meeting them was great and I don't think I was too creepy of a fan girl! I hope I get another chance to meet them in the future!
|I don't know why this uploaded this direction. It is ok on my PC.|
|The Cullen house was really nice!|
|The snow still hadn't melted from the week before.|
|Bella and Edward's Cottage|
|Spooky Swan house!|
|Not as spooky in the day time - We drove by on our way home|
|Bella's room and fake tree|
The next morning got up and checked out to met my cousin in chinatown for lunch before our drive home. We had a nice visit but when we came back to my car, the back window was busted and my laptop case and everything in it was stolen (laptop, nook, charging cords, outline of story that I want to write).
