So Saturday was not just any saturday in my book, because I was Rebecca's date to the premiere of her new film: "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" (which opens Sept 18th, and she pays a nickel every time I mention that).
September 18th! September 18th! September 18th! September 18th! (ooooh a quarter already!)
We arrived in Westwood and got to see all the cameras and reporters awaiting the arrivals of the mega stars that did voices for the film. And in this photo you can see the directors (in the middle) and SNL member Bill Hadar on the left of the screen.
The energy was crazy over there.. Anna Farris, Neil Patrick Harris, and other big names, but I looked all around for one of my all time idols..
And he was no where to be found...!
But we did bump into many of Rebecca's coworkers and they were all super excited to see her and to ask about Olive. We were so happy to bump into Melissa, one of Olives first visitors, and many many more of the Sony-Olive fan club.
The movie was fantastic and wacky and just a lot of fun. It was in 3D and we had to wear these funky glasses. And at the end of the film, we watched the credits and found Rebecca's name and even Olive's! (she got a credit as a 'production baby').
Now I know its a bit blurry.. I probably should have put the 3D glasses on the camera lense and then taken the shot, but I was just too excited to think of something so clever.. So squint your eyes and try and find 'Olive Georgina Kuska' up there. (HINT: its in the left column).
And finally, what we've all been waiting for..
Mr. T did a great voice for one of the characters and after the premiere he came out and was talking with the fans. It was surreal. And even though I was super stoked to be in his presence, I still remembered my little Olive.. So I pulled out a photo and cautiously approached the man.
The conversation phonetically went like this:
E: Ummmm, excuse me Mr. T? Could I get a picture with you?
T: You sure caaaaahaann. It would be Mister T's privlidge.
E: Ah cool..! Umm, this is my daughter Olive, and she cant be here today, but I grew up watching you, and my daughter is going to grow up watching you as well. Im a big fan.
and then he turned to me, shook my hand and looked me straight in the eye and said:
T: Awwwwww.. That makes me prou-oud to have yor trust. And I appreciatte that. And I want you to know, Im gonna work azzzz hard azzzz I caahan, to earn and keeee-eeeep that trust.
E: Wow. Thank you so much!
T: God bless you and your famly. I pity da fool who does not read Olive's blog... Mmmmmmm.
(Ok I made that last line up, but the rest was the word for word conversation with Mr. T. (Now how many people can boast of something like that?))
Well keeeeeds. Stay in skooh, dont play da fooh. And go watch yourselves some A-Team reruuuunz or go rent Rocky threeeeeeeeee.
