Oh right, of course you don’t because it just happened!
Meeting Felicia Day was quick, but it was still awesome. I’m about halfway through her memoir, You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) , and I feel such a kinship with her. Although her lack of friends was due to being homeschooled and mine was just being from a small town where no one seemed to “get” me, we both turned to the internet for socialization and to find people like us who LIKED us. If you’re a huge nerd, like me, you should definitely read this book.
I should have investigated more during the day at Indigo because I did not know we could have gone and gotten a group ticket earlier. That was never the procedure at book signings I’ve been to, so when I arrived after work, I was in group 17. With 20 people in each group, I had 320 people ahead of me (plus one since I was the second person in line for our group). Toronto LOVES Felicia! Apparently, there was 300 people at her NYC signing and there was still 7 groups of 20 after mine! I wonder if they got through them all because I left at 9:30pm and I think they said they were shutting it down at 10pm.
I’m super awkward when meeting celebrities. I never know what to say. Felicia commented on my Nikon camera (everyone else was just using cell phones for pictures) and I think I said something derpy about wanting the picture of us to be good. So much for being cool!
Honestly though, Felicia is super awesome and a flawless goddess. For real. I felt so bad for her though when the women ahead of me pulled her in for a hug, which Felicia obviously didn’t want, and the women kissed Felicia’s head. Hey lady, ever hear of personal space! Geez! You don’t know her like that! The nerve of some people.
I hope she enjoyed her time in Toronto and that she comes back soon!
