My DC Experience!

Hello All! I am new to this board - but I am excited to share experiences with all of you, as I have been enjoying reading about yours.

I was at the Philadelphia show on the first night of their tour. They seemed pretty nervous/reserved compared to the later dates, but it was so exciting getting to be there with them on the first night. I did not know they would be doing a meet and greet and was so frustrated I missed out on meeting them! I did lurk around their hotel (as they announced at the show where they were staying) but had no luck. Bret apparently also ate at Marathon Grill (one of my favorite restaurants in town) right near where I work!

I attended their late show (10pm) in DC on May 9th and was determined to meet them. I am basically in love with Bret (as I'm sure many of you can relate to). This was also my first Arj Barker experience - amazing! I feel like I did not come adequately prepared with gifts after seeing all the wonderful things you all have made for them. I was so very nervous, but they both made me feel comfortable. Bret's eyes - are beautiful - (just like broccoli!) I talked to him about being at the Philly show and he asked me what I thought of the two performances in comparison; I told him I liked his haircut and he told me about how he had walked into a party the night before and Jemaine didn't recognize him. Someone around me asked where he got his animal sweatshirts (has anyone asked this before?). He told us he just googled "animal sweatshirts" and ended up on some middle eastern website. Anyways, I wish I had taken more time with him but I was so nervous!

My chatting with Jemaine was brief but my friend Paul did take an awesome picture with him! The conversation went something like this -
Paul: "Let's stand back to back, like manly."
Jemaine: "Oh like on a cop show."
Jemaine: "You know, let me see that picture, I could probably be manlier than that."

I love how they care about how your picture turns out!

Anyways - it was a brief encounter but made my year nonetheless. I hope to get the pleasure of meeting them again. The obsession continues!

Now.. how do I add pictures to this thing?

I'm glad I'm not the only one thinking Kelly's friend is hot! :-[

And he really must be, to be able to distract us from the guys for even one second!
