Awkward Celebrity Encounters Part II: LeVar Burton Did Something Weird To My Eye!!!

24 Feb

Previously at Come On, Mr. Sunshine….

I spoke of my virtual encounter with Roseanne Barr yesterday. It didn’t end well, but it was on Twitter, so who give a shiz, right? It’s not like I actually met her in real life and she up and smacked me or something…it’s not as if I ran into her in a bar somewhere and woke up the next morning looking less like CJack and more like Rocky Dennis. No….the World wanted to save that for my encounter with Gordie “Reading Rainbow” LaForge.

Click Me! Awesome Blog Alert!

‘Member yesterday when I told you about meeting Comic Con celebrities at the hotel bar? Well, I was sitting by my lonesome when I noticed the dude across from me was staring my way. Then I noticed it wasn’t my devistating beauty that had captivated him…it was his:

The guy took a picture with LeVar, who was nothing but lovely and went and sat back down. Just then KJack got there and sat down on the other side of me creating a LeVar Burton-KJack Sandwich with a CJack center. It. Was. Awesome.

Then the bartender declined my credit card and I had to pay for my Miller Lite in change while LeVar looked on….

Then I told him that, this one time, the Reading Rainbow theme was my ringtone….

Then, when the bartender brought him over a drink from the guy from before, I half mumbled…

“He can take a picture with me if it gets me a free drink!” *insert horrible awkward CJack laugh*

LeVar: Sure!

silence…more silence….

LeVar: Well, I’m going to go…did uh, did you want that picture?


KJack: Uh, Caitlin, he’ll take a picture with you!

CJack: What? Oh, you want to take a picture with me? Yeah, I mean, yes, sure!

LeVar: You asked me for one, right?

CJack: …..yes…..

(no….but I want one)
When CJackKittycat met LeVar Burton

CJack and happier times.

It. Was. Awesome. Again. I LOVE HIM!!!!!!! Truly, I do. I always have! When I was little I didn’t care what he said, I always took his “word for it.”  It was a pleasure to meet him and he couldn’t have been more wonderful. He said goodnight and off he went to his quarters hotel room.

Approx. 9 hours later I woke up to this:

What. The. Fuck.

When you wake up with your eye swollen shut you think back to all the things that could have caused it. Did I eat something weird? No. Did you rub your face on something? New shirt? Different soap? Did you touch someone…did you SQUISH YOUR FACE UP TO SOMEONE?!?!?! HOLY SHIT!!! LEVAR BURTON DID SOMETHING WEIRD TO MY EYE!!!!!!!!!

This is clearly some sort of disease he picked up while doing whatever it is the Away Team does when no one’s watching!

Don't freaking touch it Geordi!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Patient Zero

You’ve ruined me LaForge!!

Once I’d deduced that I had obviously been infected via eye to eye contact with someone who has been on multiple planets and who probably never sanitized his visor properly, I knew it must have been that fateful night in Ten-Forward  Hyatt Red Bar.

In actuality the culprit behind my new face was probably not an allergic reaction to Handsome nor was LeVar the Typhoid Mary of whatever the dude in the above picture had, but it sure as hell is a lot more interesting than what really happened….

Likes: Eyes; Dislikes: John Goodman

 ….this guy.

    It reminds me of the time I got the ol’ Swine Flu the day after attending Dragon*Con. I thought back to the previous day and realized that the very last thing I did was to shake Alan Ruck’s hand. I felt so guilty. I’m sure he got sick and it was all my fault. Evidently, Wil Wheaton got swine flu at a different convention that very same year and now he won’t shake anyone’s hand. He does a very polite fist bump. I can’t say I blame him.

        No. Seriously. I do. I’m terribly lazy right now, but I am without a doubt adding you to my blogroll. Just need another coffee first.

        And I, seriously, appreciate it! I dig your blog…I, too, cannot shut the fuck up when I think someone’s wrong. We’ve started a beautiful blogfreindship here you and I. As for the pinning…I can’t stop…there’s something horribly wrong with me.

        And you use the word “fuck” so eloquently…

        Best friends forever, pinky swear.

        And will you look at that, a very active “pinner”… Worth a follow.
