Geek’d Con – Tyler

So today I went to Geek’d Con and even for a small show [smaller than Walker Stalker] I did have a lot of fun!  Got to put on a yellow rain jacket and get in the driver’s seat of the Jurassic Park Jeep!  [Picture is above] Went with my friend Stacey and her son, Wesley.  Listened to Theshay West, one of the walkers that followed Michonne around from the Walking Dead. 

Listened to the Sam Witwer panel.  Not only has he done some cool stuff he is really good at impressions!  He was just a really cool guy!  Then met him. 

I also met Lindsey McKeon who played Tessa, the Reaper, on Supernatural.  She also did a guest spot on 2 episodes in Veronica Mars season 3.  She also is on One Tree Hill but I haven’t watch that yet…

Here some photos from the show below:

Walker Stalker Dallas

Okay so I went to the Walker Stalker convention in Dallas this weekend where I had a BLAST! It was so neat to be there around so many people who I have seen in movies and TV shows. Oh but you say no pictures means it didn’t happen right? Well don’t worry I have plenty of proof to show you just what went down…  there were also cool folks just walking around like this guy who I took a picture with…

I got to the show and meet up with my friend and her husband. I beelined to meet Seth Gilliam [Dr. Deaton on Teen Wolf and Gabriel on the Walking Dead]. He was SO nice and just was so easy to talk with… Then we went around and the line for both “Glenn” and “Hershel” was so long…I did get a snap shot of Scott Wilson a.k.a. Hershel [see below].

We continued to walk around and we ran into Cecil Ricks… [this guy won a Rick lookalike contest and man did he look like him] my friends took a photo with him.

Next we found some more of the cast of the Walking Dead… said hello to the guy who plays Tyreese. Then came across Denis O’hare who plays on American Horror Story…but also played Russell Edgington in True Blood. [A very crazy vampire king] I got to take a photo with him…he is very nice in person and not crazy! Lol

We went to a panel that had Jordan Woods-Robinson and Ross Marquand. They were funny and Ross did a pretty wicked impression of Matthew McConaughey! Jordan also played guitar and sang…

image

From there I went and got in line for my photo op with Ian Somerhalder! I was nervous but went ahead… when it was my turn he greeted me and called me love. [I incidentally love it when a guy dies that] and he was so very nice that it made me just feel so comfortable around him. I like this picture the best! It really was the moment of the day for me!!! ♡

I then after our photo caught the last of a panel with Michael Rooker [Merle Dixon]. He was absolutely a riot! My favorite part of the panel was when this little kid asked him why he cut off his hand rather than cutting the pipe? He tried to reason with the kid but the kid just kept going on all the other things he could have cut through rather than his hand…to the point Michael asked the kid if he was “still arguing with me? Did your Dad put you up to this?” Lmao!

I then got my photo with Dr. Deaton oh wait I mean Seth… lol

image

Then I rushed over to the Vampire Diaries panel… and I got to see the whole thing…I was pretty far back but it was worth it.

One of my favorite parts was when they kept getting asked what they would do if a Zombie apocalypse being Damon and Stephan… they were like they would be ok and aren’t Zombies slow? What if they couldn’t survive on Zombie blood? Then they would be okay and they would just play games and knock over the Zombies… then someone asked who of the Winchester’s would they want to kill them? They both were like who? [I might have been a little loud in my voicing of come on guys the Winchesters! Dean and Sam] Then they got it and it was Paul who was like Jared is such a tall dude that every time he is around he is looking up to him….and he feels emasculated by him. Then Paul was like Ian could have the pretty boy one and Ian agreed on Jared as well! Lol.

After that last panel I left because I was famished. So that was my experience on this year’s Walker Stalker convention in Dallas!

The Walking Dead

With lots more late nights to come and still having to wake in time to make it to work during the week (before or around 8 in the morning) leaves me feeling like a zombie. Staggering around. Groaning. Temperamental. I think you get the picture. If not see below…you’ll catch my drift.

R from Warm Bodies

“I don’t wanna be this way. I’m lonely. I’m totally lost. I mean, I’m literally lost. I’ve never been in this part of the airport before.”

For instance today my boss called me on my cell. Then in the conversation asked me to text him my direct line at work so he could put it in his cell. I go to do this while trying to multitask doing two or three other things while texting him back… I send him my cell number (I might add which he already has as he just called me on it). I finally realize what I did and just shake my head. Now not only does he think I might be an idiot, I then have to text him a second time with the right number. I don’t always help myself out by staying up late like writing this blog at this late hour but when do I have the time before now to do these things? I don’t is the obvious answer. So here I am putting this together. Or on Sunday I took a road trip to go see a Dallas Stars Hockey game + an alumni game after that to which I didn’t get home until midnight… and being Sunday (the most dreaded day of my week) Monday was the next day. I have somewhat recovered from that but last night after work then class I had to do laundry which kept me up late. Tonight was a chance to go to sleep early but I had things to do and now I am writing this so I am up late again. #Sigh

While most folks were our having a green beer in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day… (I also celebrated Murphy’s Law day as my work day sucked) but I went to my apartment for Bingo. There were drinks (Sprite or Water), snacks (cookies), and prizes (giftcards, a diamond necklace, and a rent voucher) to be given away all for free. The trick was you just had to get a B-I-N-G-O before anyone else of course. So was luck on my side you may ask yourself?

Lucky or not?

Lucky or not?

Why yes I was VERY lucky as I was the second person to have a bingo. I ended up with a nifty $20 gift card to Target. It was a lot of fun and I came very close to winning again…but being close doesn’t cut it. I do think I might have been in fear for my life from the other residents if I had won another prize… Alas I did not win another prize. Once that was over I then I went out with my best friend to grab some dinner.

Back to the topic of zombies and loss of sleep… I have been now since the fall of 2012 going back to college at night for a Associates as a paralegal. This semester has been rough as I have had to go up to class three nights a week. Monday/Wednesday/Thursday have become very long days for me between work and class. It is about to pay off! Why you may ask? Well I am going to hunker down and take the last three classes I need next semester. This means I should graduate in December of this year. Taking something two classes at a time kind of has a feeling of desperation thinking will this ever be done. Yes, yes it will and now in a very short time for me. In a very short time really I will be able to say, I did it! Then maybe I can get more sleep but probably not.
