Yesterday was the Studio tour and I didn't want to be in the huge long line to
get autographs. The night before I got to speak to Xenia Seeberg for a
Looooongggg time but she left out without taking her pendant. She wanted to
give me money for it and I had wanted to give it to her as a gift, but the
people mobbed her and she left out without her pendant.
Well I'm hanging out waiting for folks to get done with getting autographs,
knowing that Xenia was due to leave out to fly to London in 15 minutes. I gave
the pendant to a production assistant (MaMaBear) telling her that Xenia wanted this and to make sure she got it.
Well dig this. One of my ladies (Doffy) came running out of the autograph line yelling "Nora..Nora...Xenia wants to see YOU NOW!!" So I'm dragged through these long double lines of folks waiting for autographs and come to the table and Xenia jumps up and is all happy and says, "Oh I was afraid I wasn't going to see you before I left out."
I told her that her pendant is with MaMaBear and it's safe and will be with her when she travels. Xenia said "I want to run upstairs to get you some money." and she kisses my cheek. I'm getting glares from the folks in line like I didn't work hard for that kiss or something. I told her, "Let's write to each
other instead. You don't have time for extra running about. We'll be in touch,
this is just the beginning of our friendship." She said, "Yes, yes that's
right. We'll write, I go to San Francisco all the time."
Her boyfriend's good friend is Keanu Reeves! Dig that!
So the studio tour was enlightening and I got a copy of the story boards
(drawings of screen shots) of Episode 3.5, the Gondala, one of my favorites.
Got some wrist bands as scav, they let the fans scav stuff they are letting go
of for momentos.
I'm satisfied with the results of this Halifax run. I made connections, got
folks in the cast and crew to see my works. Got Wowsies from them for they know what Michael McManus looks like when smiling and I got him down exactly as he looks. Although they said they didn't think his "other parts" were as well endowed.
Oh MM is going to get some ration of shit when he comes back from Iceland,
everyone from secretaries to make up artists, art directors, to the other
actors saw my CowBoy Kai and his "other parts" and they roared with laughter. The producer and founder of the series (Lex Gigeroff) saw it and he thought it was a hoot and a riot. So MM is going to get the razz when he returns.
Xenia said, "I'm sorry that Michael couldn't be here to see this doll, it looks
so much like him."
