I have returned from New York!!

I got to a taping and it was fabulous. It was the one with Moby as the guest. You can probably hear my really loud and obnoxious laugh over the other laughter: all the crew people kept staring at me. And so did JON!!! La dee da I am special to him!!!

I was on the VIP list cause Mo Rocca got me tickets (I am the TDS whore) and I got there late cause it was raining and buses were crowded and blah, blah, blah. They were going to not let me in, but I was like, pleasepleaseplease this is my dream, I came all the way from Atlanta, I'll sit in someone's lap (preferably Jon's), pleasepleaseplease and they finally let me in. I was sitting on the side of the studio (not in normal audience chairs) off to the right of the set. But I could still see Jon and we made eye contact repeatedly!!!! It was fabulous. Moby was excellent, Jon was even more gorgeous in person than on TV, and I got a picture with Steve Carell after the show!! All in all, a wonderful experience. Of course

Since I was sitting on the side of the studio, Jon walked RIGHT past me when the taping was over. Like, he was 3 feet away from me. Unfortunately, Teri had already come over and told us not to move from our seats. Otherwise I would have jumped him and this thread would not be called "I saw Jon."

Mo Rocca is a god. I have the lisp saved on my cell phone. If I knew of a way to put it up here, I would. But I can't cause I'm a technological retard. In the letter he wrote to me, he said that if I still couldn't get tickets to call the studio, ask for him, and he would see what he could do. So I called the Monday before I left and left a message on his voice mail. He called back sometime when I had my phone off and I didn't check my messages till my mom and sister were driving me to the airport. I had an orgasm in the car and they were like, we're sending you to New York alone?

So he got me tickets for the Monday 5/13 taping and told me to stand in the VIP line and I did, blah, blah, blah. So a few days later, I was like, I have GOT to meet him. (This was before the taping). So being the retard that I am, I called and left another message. I was like, thank you so much for the tickets, blah blah blah, I'm writing a story for my school paper (total lie- I don't even write for the paper ever) about how New York has changed since September 11, I would love to interview you if you wouldn't mind, call me back, blah, blah, blah. As soon as I hung up, I was like, SHIT!!! Why the hell did I just do that???? Cause I felt all stupid and everything. So he didn't call back till after I went to the taping (turns out he was traveling) so I called back after the show to thank him sooooo much for the tickets and I had a blast, blah, blah, blah. Didn't mention the whole paper lie again. He called back as I was on the plane home (another orgasm in the car experience with mom and sis) and said that he had been traveling, would love to be interviewed by me if it wasn't too late (yes, he said loved) hoped I had a good time in New York, gave me his direct line at work, they're gonna be on vacation till June 3, blah blah blah. Wheeeeeeee!!! Mo Rocca is the best ever!!!
