Tame 'n lame fangirl fantasies

On the fangirl side of things, I had an amusing little exchange recently with another LJ lass on an old entry in the mollyringwraith journal. I'll paste the relevant comments for you here:

air_and_angels: When I moved to England for a year I fantasised that I would somehow meet [Orlando Bloom] there, since I'd never somehow met him when he was in New Zealand. Not that Orlando Bloom was tremendously likely to ride a morning bus in Cambridge and sit down next to me and ask me what's on my Discman, but, you know. A girl dreams.

mollyringwraith: Dude...I've daydreamed about conversations like that so many times. Only with me, I used to imagine finding myself sitting beside Elijah Wood at an airport, and exchanging iPods to compliment each other on our tunes. :D Yeah, it hasn't happened yet...

air_and_angels: My daydream was before iPods. Now I daydream that I meet Billy Boyd at someone's beach house party in Piha, and I make him laugh or he makes me laugh or both, and we go up the road to get fish and chips for everyone and have a good chat and decide we really like each other.

mollyringwraith: LOL - Yep, I've daydreamed stuff along those lines too. (Celebrity and location may vary.) I'm glad I'm not the only one with G-rated fangirl fantasies.


...Because in truth, I would not cheat on my husband with anyone, not even Jude, Orlando, Elijah, or Ewan. But it would still be cool to meet them in a normal setting and get to have an actual conversation. What are your mundane celebrity daydreams? Grocery shopping with Hugh Jackman? Standing in the long pre-Christmas post office lines with Heath Ledger? Helping Johnny Depp finish a crossword puzzle at the local cafe?

This is really interesting. When I dream about celebrities (or characters), I tend to imagine meeting them in a *spectacular* circumstance. I guess I figure since I'm dreaming, it may as well be as unrealistic as possible. ^_^ Like I'll imagine I became a new starlet overnight and meet them that way. Or I somehow got into a swanky Hollywood party, and he's grateful to talk to the only "non-Hollywood" person there. Or I go to get an autograph at a convention and somehow magically capture his attention. Or I've won some fabulous contest, and the Backstreet Boys appear on my doorstep. *_* Tee hee. I guess they're silly, but that's what makes them daydreams, right?

Now for what realy happened to me! I actually met Jonathan Frakes (Will Riker from Star Trek: TNG) on a plane. *_* I saw him zoom past me at the airport; at first, I thought I had dreamt it. I must have turned absolutely white, because my parents asked what was wrong. Then I realized he'd gotten on MY plane! We were flying from Boston to LA. My parents didn't believe me, but since he was sitting in first class, we had to walk right by him to get to our seats, so I was proved right! So, I later went up and asked for his autograph. He was very nice. I was only ... let's see ... 17 at the time. So, I was too nervous to do anything as daring as start a conversation. Still when I think of it to this day ... SQUEEEEEE!

So, for you ladies with more mundane daydreams ... it can happen! ^_~

(Whereas they're not likely to invent a LOTR reality show called Fellowship House in which as each contestant is voted off, another LOTR castmember replaces them until there's only one contestant left who gets them all!

... ahem.)

That's cool! I never run into celebs, and I'm almost 30 now. Of course, I also don't fly to L.A. or New York much, which is where most of them are.

Hehehe. Now I like that idea...
