LA Con Report! :)  
The con and the entire vacation is over. But as always… angels_cordy and I had a blast and an awesome time. (yeah, I know.. surprise, surprise lol )



Loved the convention. No argument there. And after being able to catch up a little bit I’m a little astonished that so many ppl didn’t like the convention. Esp. ppl who haven’t even been there. I loved the J and J day and the guys, like always, had a great, great chemistry on and off stage. They played off each other very well, joked around and were even able to finish each other sentences. (can I hear a collective “Awwww” here? :D )
As you know, I’m not a fan of Genevieve - Not.at.all - For some various reasons! And this will most probably also never change. But I still had an awesome time at the convention. I just blinded out certain parts (*cough* Clif etc *cough* ) and still enjoyed the awesomeness that is Jared and Jensen on stage!! <333 No matter what ppl say…. those two will never change and even now after so many years there is still that special spark between them they already had on stage at their very first con. The only difference? They grew up quite a bit since their first Chicago appearance in 2007. (ok at least they grew up a TINY bit lol )

One of the highlights was def. Sunday. We had amazing seats for the breakfast. Almost front and center. And the awesome mood of the two Js pretty much set the entire mood for the rest of the day. They were a little late, so T and I speculated who had overslept this time! LOL But yeah, we never learned the truth, cause as soon as J and J went on stage, every other thought pretty much left the building. There was the usual microphone joke right at the beginning… but thankfully then the boys chose just the perfect sides, so that Jared was infront of us all of the 35 minutes \o/ The guy truly knows where he belongs to, yes? LOL

After the breakfast I decided very last minute to buy a J2 sandwich picture. Originally I only had a Jared pic. But after seeing the boys on stage with such great and positive energy between them I just needed to have a pic with both of them.
And I really do like my picture. Not the best J2 pic I ever had, b/c Jensen is half smiling/half not, but still a very, very good pic. Plus you can clearly see who my favourite guy is, cause I’m slightly leaning towards Jared. But the past part? He is also leaning towards me, and sporting his 1000 megawatt smile, so… everything is right in the world :-D

But the true perfect picture this weekend I got with the solo Jared picture. Strangely I wasn’t THAT nervous while walking up to him. Don’t get me wrong… there is always the usual “OMG” on repeat in my head… but I felt quite calm.
Then I said Hi to him and got into position for the picture. I figured we would do the normal “stand besides each other, hands around each others backs” pose. But as soon as I’ve laid my hand on his back, he pulled me in and squeezed me very, very (and I mean VERY) tightly to his body. I think at this moment my brain wasn’t even processing what was going on. It went all too fast. All I felt was his very very (and I say it again: VERY) muscular body pressed up to me and his chin resting on the side of my head. Then there was the flash of the camera and I had to say goodbye again.

Again, I can’t say enough how much I love the picture!! *heart* After it was done I was sooo worried that I would grin stupidly in it. BUT… I didn’t. It was just perfect.

T and I also shared a Misha picture. But well… as always, since it’s a MISHA picture it turned out quite… weirdly LOL But honestly… we haven’t expected anything else. Still, we had lots of fun with it. Esp. afterwards LOOL *winks at T*

Hmm what else… oh right… I have to admit…. As much as I love Jared, I think I will never get on board with being a fan of the Brain Buckley Band!! Holy lord… that was aweful not good. Though the concert was still entertaining.. cause they performed in a very funny and expressive way. LOL We couldn’t stop laughing!! (very quietly of course) Though, I got to admit, the front man can def. play guitar!! Now he just has to use his talent for GOOD THINGS!!!

I think the best part of the concert was that we already got to see Jared on Friday evening. Even after the concert he stayed for a little bit and posed for some pictures with the band and answered a couple of fan questions. He even crashed the karaoke party very, very briefly! LOL Which was fun, too. Every con should kick off with Jared being there on the first day. *nod* Then I would even try to stomach the great, great Brian Buckley Band - again! Lol
After the band was done, karaoke time began!! And hands down, I think this was the best and most fun karaoke party ever!! We laughed, sang and danced until almost 2 am. Then the hotel staff ended the party *sigh* But it was a great evening. And almost everyone sang better than the BB Band. lol

All other stage guests (besides one) were great over the weekend. Even though Mark Sheppard is still not my friend entirely, I enjoyed his talk way more than the last one I’ve seen. At the dessert party he was even sitting right besides me. (I know… lucky me! lol ) Then, he asked everyone where they were from… and as I said “Austria” he said “I avoid Austria like the plague” LOL So… see? Always knew why Mark and I will never be friends LOL
And then he spoke a few words in German. Which surprised T and myself quite a bit cause it sounded entirely fluently – without any accent at all! He said that his mother is German!!

Overall the dessert party was quite good this year. Even though most of the guests were tired. AND for some reason Misha didn’t have much to say!! (that’s gotta be a first, yes? )
Oh, and right before the dessert party, we met up with afrocurl and takemejustasiam at the Sports Bar to grab some dinner!! \o/

Last but not least I have to single out “Steven Williams”. I had no idea what to expect of the guy!! I only know him as Rufus… and that was never one of my favourite characters. But I guess after the convention I have to change my mind about Rufus. Cause Steven is awesome!!! Sooo much fun on stage. It seemed he truly enjoyed his convention adventure and I can’t wait to see him again!!

Alrighty… I am sure I’m forgetting quite some stuff. But I guess if I would tell you everything… I would be running out of LJ space for sure!! lol If you have anymore questions, or want to know about something specific in more detail…. please feel free to ask!

Oh btw… like (almost) always, I’ve decided to not post my photo ops. I think I want to keep them just for myself… cause you know how it is with the internet. :-/ And I think they are just too precious to be spread around. Hope you understand! :)

Though, here are some general pics of the con. I didn’t take many though, cause I was otherwise… uhm… preoccupied. lol



One pic of each guest:









Breakfast:



Three pics of Jared from the J2 panel:

tinkabell007tinkabell007 on February 25th, 2011 04:01 pm (UTC)
You're welcome.
Hehe... the sad part... it would probably still sound way better than the Brian Buckley Band lol
Charlycharly2004 on February 25th, 2011 04:09 pm (UTC)
So glad you had a great time sweetie!!!
I haven't really caught up on anything else about the con, I'm kinda out of the loop but I agree J and J are just always awesome on stage and other stuff (Gen, Clif...) you just have to block out haha, you know how much I agree with you on both accounts :P
*hugs*
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on February 25th, 2011 04:29 pm (UTC)
Thanks dear :) It truly was a great time!! But I didn't expect anything less while traveling with T :-))
And yeah... J and J are always great entertainment on stage. No matter if the question is more fun or serious, they always manage to provide a good time for all of us!! :-))

*hugs*

So glad you had a great time!!!!!!! I wish I could see your photo ops, but I understand, babe!

Are you going to do a write up about Vegas? Oh how I love that city!!!

So Steve is much better than the Brian Buckley Band? I'm secretly glad to know this. *evil*
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on February 25th, 2011 06:57 pm (UTC)
Check your other comments :))

And yep, def. gonna write a report about the rest of our trip as well. And I'm sorting through my Vegas pics to choose the perfect ones for posting!!! Vegas is truly awesome! No argument there :)

HELL YES. Steve is waaaaaaaaaay better than the BB Band!!! Judging from your *evil* "remark"... is there something going on we don't know about? *is curious now*

sounds like you had a blast hon. happy for you :)
i will agree about the BBB, not my thing at all. i heard them sing but i'm more of a acdc, breaking benjamin kinda girl :P

Edited at 2011-02-25 06:54 pm (UTC)
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on February 26th, 2011 03:30 pm (UTC)
Thank you, sweetie :))

Well, my taste in music is very wide (and I also do like Breaking Benjamin and ACDC *g* ) but yeah, the BBB is DEFINITELY not among my favorites!! *sigh*
Kristin: Jared » “My Reason For Existing”kristypadalecki on February 25th, 2011 06:56 pm (UTC)
Wow, it sounds like you had an awesome time!! I'm so happy for you guys. :D

My heart was beating quite fast while reading your photo op experience with him! I wish he'd have done that with me. Perhaps this year? ♥ It's too bad we can't see it, but I completely understand. Those pics are very special, indeed.
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on February 26th, 2011 03:33 pm (UTC)
Thank you very much, honey :-))

And I'm crossing my fingers for you for the Chicago Con!! :-))

A whiiiile back I posted some of my photo ops (it was even a friends locked entry) And even then some of the photo ops suddenly appeared on different sites and different PB accounts! So yeah, I learned my lesson with that.
dolnmoondolnmoon on February 25th, 2011 07:02 pm (UTC)
You always have the best Jared experiences.. Lucky you...

I would love to see the sandwich pic but I know how you feel about sharing them..... Jensen does the half smile a lot... I think his brain goes elsewhere after 500 pics..lol

So glad you had such a fab time darlin.. you deserved it after everything.

Hugs you tight
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on February 27th, 2011 08:17 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I guess I'm really fortunate with my Jared experiences. Except for one time, I always had a very special moment with him. (and that one time wasn't his fault either... it was anther fan :-/ )

Thanks so much for reading through all of this!! Glad you liked the report!! Also, you might want to check your msgs later today *g*

*squishes back*

All I felt was his very very (and I say it again: VERY) muscular body pressed up to me and his chin resting on the side of my head.
*sigh* *want* I'm sooo very jealous right now, but also very happy for you.

Every con should kick off with Jared being there on the first day. *nod*
Guess, Daniela had the right idea for Rome in that case.
Friday morning right after the Roman Holiday - Jared time \o/

He said that his mother is German!!
Mark's mom is from Hamburg (my current hometown) as he told me very excited in Birmingham last October. ;)

Thanks for sharing this reaport. It's always great to read them. Especially for cons I couldn't go to.
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on February 27th, 2011 08:33 pm (UTC)
YAY Jared time on Friday!! Hands down, that this is the best start into a con weekend.

And thank YOU for reading the report. Glad you enjoyed it.
quirky_thoughtsquirky_thoughts on February 25th, 2011 08:13 pm (UTC)
Wow...lucky you :) The weekend sounds awesome.

I felt was his very very (and I say it again: VERY) muscular body pressed up to me and his chin resting on the side of my head.

Guh! *drools* It makes me feel all warm amd fuzzy just thinking about it.

I saw a YT clip of the Brian Buckley with Jared...I thought maybe you had to be there to enjoy their music...obviously not! lol :D

tinkabell007tinkabell007 on February 27th, 2011 08:37 pm (UTC)
It really was an awesome and fun weekend! :))

Oh and don't remind me! LOL I still feel his muscles on my body. And just thinking about it makes my brain explode!!! GUH. Oh Jared... what are you doing to me? lol

Uhm... and nope. There is no way of being able to enjoy the band. At least not for me. Gah. Just horrible!! But at least Jared made it all better. But you can feel lucky that you didn't hear them perform for over 60 minutes!! *shudders*

tinkabell007tinkabell007 on February 27th, 2011 08:41 pm (UTC)
Yep, pretty much. The boys just left me hungry for moooore :-D
And then, with the muscular perfect body I finally got satisfied. *rrrr*

Thanks so much for reading the report, darling! Glad you enjoyed it!!

AND YES!! NEXT TIME! NO EXCUSES FOR YOU, LADY!!! :-)

Oh btw... are you still going to the Barcelona con? :)

why the fans don't liked the con? the guys are more old ,different and lot don't like.cool you seen lot jared at concert with genevieve. you was next of his table.
sniff i would have adored to see your op with jared and j2.
I don't like Brain Buckley Band not my style of music.I know steven since a show with johnny depp
Love you happy week end and episode. Thanks for this report.
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on February 27th, 2011 08:47 pm (UTC)
Oh you know... some fans are just like that :-/ There is ONE thing they don't like and suddenly they say that the entire con was crap. *sigh* You know how fandom is sometimes.

Aww and hon, don't you worry, you know you will get them via email ;)

And yeah, I guess the Brian Buckley Band has a lot of non-fans. I can't get on board with their music either. It was just painful to listen... but at least it was fun to watch LOL

Thanks for reading, hon. Have a great Oscar-night :-)

Yeah, since the autographs were delayed, everything took a bit longer!! :-/
And yep... we really had a fabulous time at the con. The only thing missing was a karaoke performance from you :-D
WeHo M.: CAafrocurl on February 26th, 2011 02:15 am (UTC)
Your op photos must be really special... ;)

It was lovely to see you, as always.
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on February 27th, 2011 08:54 pm (UTC)
They really are. I can't stop looking at the Jared pic. It's just so damn perfect <333

And right back at ya, hon :)

I’m a little astonished that so many ppl didn’t like the convention. Esp. ppl who haven’t even been there

Uhm... whatever, fandom, whatever. *rolls eyes at fandom*

Which microphone joke?

Yay, perfect photo! \o/

Oh, that sounds interesting. But yeah, I understand why Mark Sheppard and you won't ever be BFFs. ;)
Mark Schaefer would sound boring though. *giggles*

Sure. I don't think I would share my photo ops either.

Uhm... Matt Cohen... *-* I bet he looks even better in RL than in photos.
Awww, Amy Gumenick looks like such a sweetie! <3
And did Traci cut her hair?!

Thanks for the report and the photos! :)
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on February 27th, 2011 09:01 pm (UTC)
Exactly. It's fandom... what did I expect?

Which microphone joke?

Oh you know... one microphone is waaaay up high and one is low... and Jensen gets the waaaay too high microphone. I think they do this joke at every other con.

Mark Schaefer..... ROOOOFL Oh boy... now that's fun. I need to tell him that the next time LOL

And Matt looks absolutely YUMMY!!! Now with his hair grown back a bit, he looks even more delicious!!! I wouldn't have any problem to stare at him for hours lol

And did Traci cut her hair?!

Oh no no... she just had it pulled together :-)


And thank YOU for reading the report and looking at the pics! Glad you enjoyed it, hon :)
