I went to New York Comic Con yesterday and it was a great time. But it did make me realize that I don’t seem to be getting better at taking pictures. Maybe it’s because I always think I am bothering people so I try to take them super fast. Maybe it’s because I am afraid someone will ask why I’m in the ladies room. Regardless, some of the pics I took are not the best quality. But that is NOT how I choked.
I choked because of Felicia Day.
How? Well, because I got my pic taken with her and instead of doing what I should have done, I kept worrying about doing hover hand. I didn’t want to be the hover hand guy. I wanted to be cooler than that. I was going to get a serious handful of Felicia Day (without like….groping her) no matter what! So I stood in line and it went crazy fast. Each pic took 10 seconds, tops. But she would like, try to strangle you or whatever if you asked – she is pretty cool. And she has a variety of stock faces so she can’t be accused of Summer Glau’ing it.
So what did the founder of the only site that has a whole section devoted to celebrity tongues ask Felicia to do? Nothing. I just kept saying: “No hover hand, no hover hand, no hover hand” out loud! She genuinely laughed (I am super funny, you know!) but then it was over and I was shambling off wondering how I could have screwed up so badly?
Why didn’t I ask her to stick out her tongue? You know, do the whole, Metal Devil Horns with your tongue sticking out thing? I am an idiot. So now I need another chance. She is on Google Plus and Twitter so I am sure that if you all point out my mistake to her she will do something about it. I mean, she must go to a lot of conventions, right? All I need is spend another 40 clams to get another picture. Oh, and a ticket to whatever show it is. And airfare. And a hotel. Damn, I better do a kickstarter or more of you need to donate. I have to follow her around like she was the Grateful Dead and I was a dirty barefoot hippy.
So check out my pics below, and my awesome NON HOVER HAND Felicia Day pic at the very bottom. And help me make this right. Oh, and I guess if any of you get your pic taken with a celeb, you do it, too and send the pic to me. You can crop yourself out of it if you want. Or don’t. Either way, I can’t pay you for it. See you next year when the Gallery arrives in FORCE. Seriously, we are gonna try to make it a thing.
