Rome Fiction Fest with Lisa | Arriving and House screening, July 10th 2009  

So on Friday we left our hotel to do more sightseeing but I will make an extra entry for that. We remembered that somebody on LJ said they would start selling tickets at 4 pm at the theater. Well, that was bullshit.



The Adriano Theater at Piazza Cavour
Fortunately we arrived at the Adriano Theater around 1.30 pm to get a good spot. Thank God we came that early because they started selling the tickets around 2 pm, so me and marciavandecamp  got 2 tickets each. 2 additional ones for [info]lisa_grey  and her dad who joined us later around 5.30 pm. So yeah from that point on we did lots of standing lol because we didn't want to lose our spot in the front row. While waiting in line we met 2 other girls. Well, they had the House DVDs and some stuff to sign but they didn't even know about the FHM pics whatsoever or about Special Delivery so yeah. We felt like special nerds lol. I had brought my FHM magazine and [info]lisa_grey  and marciavandecamp  had both pics they wanted to get signed. The screening was supposed to start at 8.45 pm so we thought Lisa would get there a little bit earlier. We were so wrong lol. The more time passed the more excited we got.
 
The guy with the camera in the left pic was from Universal I think. He took many pictures of us fans. I wish we could see those pictures somewhere but I don't think we will get access to those pics :(
 
 
Irene also wanted to get the BOUO signed ♥

                          *excited*                                                         our ticket
 
At around 9.30 pm I think a car arrived. The door was opened and we saw Lisa getting out of the car. That was when our hearts and breathing stopped. OMG that feeling was so intense. Immediately she was surrounded by so many bodyguards, security and other people that it was impossible to see her for more than 2 seconds. She was pushed forward by all those people so she didn't stop by or sign anything. At that point everything happened really fast. Before that we were told that even if you had the tickets it wouldn't be for sure that you got to get in and see the House screening. 


 
So after we got our 2 seconds of Lisa we hurried to the stairs and even managed to trip. Fail. Then we rushed to the screening room which was already packed. Then 2 Italian ladies came in and I think they said something in Italian but I can't really tell because I completely zoomed out and focussed on the door. When they introduced Lisa she came through the door, of course surrounded by lots of security and walked to the front of the screening room. Then the Italian lady asked her some questions, which were not really new. Blah. But she was adorable anyway and talked about having bleeding feet. We had a little moment there because our feet were also hurting like hell at that moment.
While Jaquline took the video (which you can watch here) I was busy taking pics. Let me tell you, that room had the worst fucking light ever. Also we were pretty far away and even with the zoom some pics are quite blurry. But I hope you do enjoy them anyway. :) (Idk why but when you click on them they get kinda sharper? Fail, LJ scrapbook)
<
               
 
 
 
When Lisa was done we decided to leave the screening because we knew it wouldn't be something new, only some season 5 DVD extras and we felt pretty down because we didn't get many good pics. Also we were so exhausted. Let's face it; we were pretty emotional at that moment. So we left the theater and sat on a street curb lol and had some emo time.
 
marciavandecamp and lisa_grey feeling down
 
But we were really happy that we got to see Lisa live. It was a great experience and we don't regret anything. We finally met each other and had so much fun exploring Rome. It's such a beautiful city and I'm sure we will do it again some day. Of course we were sad that we didn't get an autograph but sometimes you can't always get what you want and I think some fans need to realize that!
 
Edit: I forgot to say, you can do whatever you want with those pics, just don't claim them as your own, thank you ♥

LMAO, I'm still laughing thinking about the tripping. oh my god lol.

Well they actually weren't THAT light but Jaqueline did some editing and I think now they're quite ok :) But thank you bb, I tried my best but my hands were so shaky lol.

God, I know! The 6th pic is killing me ♥

I know, meeting you guys was the best thing ever ♥♥♥
ladylisalaurie on July 14th, 2009 10:45 am (UTC)
Do you want me to autograph you this pic as I'm taken in? LOL

Love your pics, better than mine for sure, but also lightened. Do you mind if I take them for my poster of memories in my room?

I was happy to meet you, even if I imagined you like marcia e her like marcia cross (obviously due to the nick), and hope that one day we'll meet again for Lisa and not for her... ;)

This is all so great! It looks like you had such a fantastic time and goddamn, having Lisa right in front of you, i can't even begin to comprehend how that must have felt. :)
I love that 3rd picture of Lisa btw, the one where the bodyguards aren't completely covering her, lmao.
Ahaha, i can completely imagine you guys tripping on the stairs with all your excitement. :D
Lisa's so pretty with her ponytail and huge smile.

but sometimes you can't always get what you want and I think some fans need to realize that! --> So very very true. I love you.

CUTE ICON BB.

Haha the third pic. I didn't even look through the camera just pushed the button lol and it's the best pic I've got :D
LOL the tripping was literally epic lmao.

Thanks ♥

Never trust anyone. ANYONE. Showing up early is always the smart thing to do!

Well.. you know, karma and all.. I'm sure you'll all get to meet her properly!

And pretty pictures. :D
asus2004: friendship - the most important thingasus2004 on July 18th, 2009 06:44 pm (UTC)
Yeah, We were so relieved that we got there early. Trust no one.

Aww, I really hope it wasn't the last time we got to see her!

Thanks ♥

I'm glad you had such a good attitude about this whole thing, you saw her in the flesh and you are thrilled about that, I can see. ♥

Of course we were sad that we didn't get an autograph but sometimes you can't always get what you want and I think some fans need to realize that!
I loved that you put a little House/Rolling Stones reference in there. And this is true, I'm so glad you said it. :)

The pictures are amazing, bb! I especially love THIS one, it's so fucking cute.
asus2004: friendship - the most important thingasus2004 on July 18th, 2009 06:50 pm (UTC)
You know we never even thought about stalking her. I mean that's just so fucking rude and creepy. No wonder why many celebs wouldn't wanna attend such events. We're just really happy that we got to be so close to her ♥

The House reference was really appropriate, wasn't it? ;)

Aww, thank you. I tried my best although my hands were shaking like hell lol. Haha when I tok that pic I didn't even look through the camera, I just pushed the button and it's like the best pic I've got :D

*adds this entry to memories*

I love all the pics you took, especially THIS one. So beautiful.

I'm glad you had such a good time together. :) ♥

I'm proud of you that you knew when to stop, it shows real respect and love for Lisa. ♥

(Sorry, I deleted my previuos comment, because I can't edit it and it seems like I can't write today, lol.)

You have no idea how much in love I am with that pic. It's so fucking adorable with her all smily and happy ♥ It's simply perfect.

Thank you! We really had an amazing time in Rome ♥

And she looks even more perfect in person ♥ Just wow!

Oh wow that must have been so surreal. And crazy as well! So sad that you didn't get anything signed but gosh to be near Lisa would have made me happy for years which I'm sure you're feeling right now :P
asus2004: friendship - the most important thingasus2004 on July 18th, 2009 07:15 pm (UTC)

Can you wrap your brain around the fact that you were in the same fucking room as Lisa mostbeautifulwomanever Edelstien? Because I would wake up the next morning thinking it was all a dream.
I'm super glad you had fun, BB! But no Lisa autograph? Eh, they'll be other times. I promise you that. More opertunites to see her. ♥ And if all else fails, when I become famous, and become neighbors with her, I'll get an autograph for ya. ;D
asus2004: friendship - the most important thingasus2004 on July 23rd, 2009 06:02 pm (UTC)
Haha no, I still can't wrap my brain around that tbh. It still feels like as if it all was just a dream but then I look at my post and I know that we really saw her lol.
Awww, you're so sweet. You wouldn't mind me moving in with you then, would you? ♥
wild with hopelissie_pissie on July 18th, 2009 09:13 pm (UTC)
Awww, you guys! Your emo curb times! :( I love you! I'm happy you got to see her though! I just need to say how much I appreciate you guys not freaking out at her or causing her potential discomfort in any way. You guys are true fans and that means more than any extra time you may have gotten with her if you went a little crazy.
cuddlesmuffin on July 21st, 2009 04:36 pm (UTC)
Aww, I'm so sorry you couldn't get an autograph :/

But on the other hand, you saw her life, and you met your lj-friends and stayed in a beautiful city.
So I think it was definitely worth it :)
