MEETING THE ONE AND ONLY
D’AWWW, THAT GUY!
♬ ♪ ♩ ♫
i found out from my friend whose parents work at google, that dwight schrute, aka rainn wilson was touring silicon valley and was going to a famous bookseller books inc. in mountain view to sign a copy of his new book soulpancake! so considering i was only minutes away from this destination, i decided to pay a visit to the emmy-award winning actor!
he began speaking about the book at 7 for half an hour and began the signing after. i couldn’t go because i had to be at physical therapy (i dislocated my jaw!) so i took a chance and went at 9:00. LOL! and he was still there, and the store was still packed (it was packed to begin with; i called the store!) and people were still buying his book.
so i took some stalker pictures, and after a half hour wait it was finally my turn and i said;
‘HI! i’m sara!’ and he said ‘nice to meet you. thanks for buying my book.’ and i said ‘yeah! HEY we have the same birthday you know.’ and he said ‘really? january 20?’ and i was like ‘YEP! it’s pretty crazy!’ and he said something like ‘what a coincidence.’ so then i said ‘you’ve probably heard it a lot, but you’re a really big inspiration to me and my friends.’ and he said ‘thanks, i’m glad.’
he even wrote happy birthday to me. d’awww.
apparently you weren’t allowed to take posed shots, because it would ‘take too long‘, so a co-editor of the book took two pictures of us talking, but later i saw some other people doing it so i said;
‘excuse me can i take a picture with you?’ while he was writing on someone else’s book. and he said ‘if you can make it in 5 seconds without anyone else noticing then yes.’ so i said ‘that is DEFINITELY possible.’ so while he was still writing on the book he was counting down from five which i thought was really funny, and then we took an awkward picture and i thanked him a million times and left. :)
he’s a really nice person and a great actor. i’m glad i could meet him. later at the counter once everyone was starting to leave, i said to the cashier;
‘you know, he’s actually very different in person.’ and she said ‘oh really? i guess so, since he’s just playing a character.’ and i said ‘yeah. an insane character. but that’s what makes it good.’ XD
