Today was the last day of Dragoncon. After checking out of my hotel I headed to the Sheraton where Wil Wheaton was doing a panel about his time on ST:TNG. It was FANTASTIC. He was hilarious as always. After 30 minutes there was a Q&A. I asked a silly question, and at the end I did a quick shout out to Jen from Cakewrecks.com because I knew she'd be there. Not only was she there, but Wil mimicked my hello to her, which I'm sure make her turn beet red as she's a bigger fan of his then I am. :) It had the added benefit of letting me know where in the audience she was sitting. Luckily it was on my way back to my seat. After a quick fangirl moment she offered me her last Carrot Jockey necklace, which I accepted with glee. I put it on as soon as I got back to my chair.
After the panel I headed to another hotel for the Walk of Fame. I wanted to get Wil's autograph before I left the convention. As fate would have it Brent Spiner was doing his signings just across from Wil. I dashed over to get his picture for my collection. As he was signing he commented on my Carrot Jockey necklace. Here's our abridged conversation.
BS: What's that? It looks cool.
Me: It's a Carrot Jockey from Cakewrecks.
BS: I know that site. I like it. I need to get one of those.
Me: I don't think she sells them. Would you like mine?
BS: No, I don't want to take it if you can't replace it.
Me: It's ok! I'm just thrilled you like it, and I know the site owner would be just as happy that you wanted one.
BS: Ok, thanks.
Now I could be making this up, except I have PROOF!!
(btw he was talking when I took the picture. he was quiet happy the entire time I swear!)
I got a fist-bump from him, then headed back to my spot in Wil's line with the world's biggest smile on my face. While I lost my prized CJ necklace (you have no idea how long I've wanted one!!), I also gained a moment that will stay with me forever. Wil Wheaton is hilarious, but Brent likes Carrot Jockeys.
The End. ^_^
