Epic Fail & Pending All-Nighter

So... I fail. I went over to Metropolis to get an autograph session ticket for Justin Hartley and Phil Morris. I failed.

I was about 15-20 people too late.

The tickets were handed out for sessions in this manner:

55 tickets per session
4 sessions

Each person could get 1-2 tickets for the same session. And tickets were handed out starting at 7am.

They are doing the same thing tomorrow morning. The first person to arrive there today arrived at 4am. So now, I need to decide what time to go camp out in Metropolis tonight. I have to factor in everyone who didn't get a ticket today and wants one. I have to factor in the out-of-towners who won't arrive until today/tonight that want tickets...

I'm thinking somewhere in the neighborhood of 2am-3am. What does my f-list think?

My sister may go camp out with me. If she does, I have a plan. I will get 2 tickets, she'll get 2 tickets and then we will hand the extra two to a person in the back of the line who didn't get any.

I figure I can take my iPod and a notebook and write. Who knows what I can write while waiting. Perhaps something with Gibbs as a bottom. I need to gather prompts before going.

I hope you get tickets this go around! As for what time - I have no earthly idea. I'd say go with 2-3 AM to just be on the safe side.

I will get 2 tickets, she'll get 2 tickets and then we will hand the extra two to a person in the back of the line who didn't get any.

And that's really nice of you. I bet if that happens, those two people will bow at your feet. *nods*

And yes! Everyone must write bottom!Gibbs! *g* I'm sure writing will help pass the time.

When I saw John Schneider a few years ago, it was before they did tickets and they just had one session. You got in line and waited and didn't get to do anything else, because you had to stay in line. I waited for JS 7-8 hours in the middle of the day in the sun... So I don't think a middle of the night wait will be too bad.

I'm aiming for 2am I think. Which means I'll need to leave my parents house around 1:30am or a little before since the route from there back to Metropolis is fraught with deer and other critters.

I've got one of those folding camp chairs that's really comfy, so I plan to take it. I used it while waiting for the midnight showing of Revenge of the Sith (and I waited 6-7 hours for that and I already had tickets, I was waiting for a good seat).

I'll try to write I think. Or talk with my sister. Maybe she can figure out what the dildo-y shaped items really are. :-)

Oh good lord. That must have been brutal. I don't think I've ever stood in line that long. Though I very well may do that for the midnight showing of Half-Blood Prince...

HAH! That's perfect. Time well-spent, says I. :-)

Scroll down to near the bottom of this post: http://kaylashay81.livejournal.com/35930.html#cutid3

And you will see that waiting to meet JS was time well spent. :-)

PS:
I know I've said it before, but Beau was always too pretty-boy for me. I prefered Luke. Clark's daddy, however, had me from the get-go. John Schneider is one of those men (like Mark Harmon) who just keeps getting better with age. *swoon*

Hi, If you need just one ticket. I have an extra one for the 3:30 session. I'm currently at the Baymont Inn. It's for the 3:30 session.

By the way my name is Ella and I saw this on my Justin Hartley Google Alert.

Thanks!

I might actually need that if you don't mind. I'm going to try to get mine tomorrow morning (camping out tonight). However, my brother is going in the afternoon and we will be one ticket short for him.

Think we could meet up sometime tomorrow to get the ticket?

I'll send you a PM with my cell phone # and real name. I won't be able to be reached until the middle of the night / tomorrow morning on my cell due to where I am at the moment and not having cell reception.

Or maybe you'll be able to leave for me at the front desk of the Baymont...

I may not need it after all. I'm sitting right now in line for tickets (4th in line). And my brother's plans changed so he is coming to the 9am one with us.

If you find someone else that needs it, go ahead and give it to them. But thanks for the offer because I would have taken you up on it otherwise.

The 3:30 one wasn't going to work for me because we are entering my niece in the Beautiful Baby contest that starts around 3:30-4:00...
