Everyone was Futurama fans but a couple or most of us knew his other work (I didn't really). He said Futurama was his favorite gig because the writing is so great.
I did not have him sign my shirt. I did have him sign an Encore Toynami Fry action figure and the free copy of the Delivery Boy Man comic.
Thought of that too, like somebody said "Hey Billy, make a fan convention".
But if he really enjoyed bowling with his fans, then it's really nice!
He got paid for it, but he said he'd forgotten about it anyway. He was so bad at bowling. Said he was awful in school at anything that involved sports, and we bonded over that a little.
We used bumpers, though, so he broke 100, at least.
Oh man! That's so cool!!!
You're so cute and pretty, hehe!
So damn jealous, nice one lemily! Very cool pics and vids. [yancy]Lucky...[/yancy]
Glad you like them!
Nice pics, looks like you had a great time. Did you ask any questions about the new eps?
I did not. I figure in a year that will be moot, but I'll still remember his answer for "what's your favorite voice" is that it would be like picking children to pick his favorite because there's some of himself in all of them. (Awww.)
I'm shy enough as it is meeting "normal" people, it wouldn't be worth me meeting a celebrity-type since I wouldn't either be bothered to ask, or be too shy to ask them anything. Emily is obviously far better suited to it, since she doesn't afraid of anything
Besides, I get enough excitement out of meeting clool people that I've spent a while getting to know over the intermatrons. They're like celebrities to me
I meet people over the interwebs all the time. My best friend is an interwebs person I met through a friend and only *met* a few months ago after almost two years of close friendship.
Also, I'm on a dating site, so lots of internet meetups.
I was nervous at first, but knowing I'd have a couple hours with Billy really let me relax. I didn't have to be cool or whatever - I was just myself. Billy's really engaging when he talks to you - he's talking to *you*, not hoping the rest of the room will overhear and come over, if you get me. He said he can't stand people who get big-headed about fame, because, "What are the chances someone you meet loves your work? One in a billion! How great is it when someone loves what you do?"
