Here is the last half of my recap from this event:
After dinner the question and answer section started. Now this is going to be hard to remember because most of the questions were lame, but I'll post what I can recall.
John's favorite shows: House and Family Guy. Had he not been an actor he would have been in the military.
Caitlin: Had she not been an actor, she would have been a school teacher, she said she was a geek in school.
Ewa De La Cruz (Vienna) : was a nurse in Norway?, she would be an eye doctor if she wasn't an actor
Jake's favorite show: the Simpson's- he admitted at one point he would go into a depression if he missed a week
Van's fave show was the same as Jake's I believe, he was also a geek in a school full of drama "geeks" (I thought that was funny)
Trent said he was an uber geek. Comic books, dungeon's and dragons, etc. He would do doctor's without borders if he wasn't an actor
Billy said that he was a wrestler that got injured and placed in an acting class. He joked that in school he would have beat up Trent (he was a cool kid)
Austin- joked around most of the time while he finished his picture which was being auctioned off. He talked about all the jobs he had and that he wasn't good at any of them. He brought a lot of life to the panel questions.
Alex (Hunter on ATWT)- said he was a band geek in high school.
Jeff's favorite show: House and one that I can't recall. *laughing*
Crystal Hunt (ex-Lizzie, Guiding Light- Stacy, One Life To Live) got the second highest SAT scores in her high school which was a medical designed school (all kids that went there had aspirations to do something in the field of medicine)- this made her one of the cool kids since the higher your grades were the cooler you were. She wanted to be a heart doctor. She started on GL when she was 17.
That's all I can remember right now. Maybe Twinnie can fill in the blanks for me *hopeful look*
The auctions lasted so long. I can't even begin to tell you what all got sold. I can tell you that an As The World Turns tour with Van and Jake went for like 6000 dollars. Meanwhile a Guiding Light tour with Caitlin and Jeff barely went for a 1000. It was pretty sad actually. Jake's painting went for 1100 dollars. Van's went for 375. Big difference. John sold one of Coop's leather jackets to Jeff. Jeff looked really great in it. Jake auctioned off a plaid shirt "Noah" wore. Van auctioned off two shirts. Beth E. auctioned off one of Harley's jackets and Gus's jacket as well. Thorsten (Zach, All My Children) bought the one Gus wore and it didn't fit him at all! Billy bought the Harley jacket and let the model that Beth dragged up there keep it. *grin* All together now...AWWWW! Thorsten also bought his own painting and gave it back to the person he painted it with. (One of the autistic young men) Again...AWWWW! The auctions dragged on quite a while. It got boring and late, but I know they made some serious cash.
Now for all the pictures. The first one I got was John. He stuck his hand out and introduced himself. I told him that I was at the event last year. He smiled at me. God he has a nice smile. *sigh* Anyway. I asked him for a picture and he graciously granted one. I joked that I had to get a lot of him because I was one of the only representatives for the Cooplee fans. He nearly choked on his drink laughing. He was drinking beer at that point I think. The picture turned out really nice and he leaned over my shoulder to look at it with me. God I love digital cameras. *laughing* I was very insecure about my face (I know, I know, get over it) but he was really kind and told me the picture looked great. I got one with Adam's camera too. He told me that he looked forward to seeing me at the bar.
Next was Van. *la sigh* He is much hotter in person if that is possible. Van took two pictures with me as well and he smells really nice. I swear all the pretty points in those pictures went to him. Jenny you picked a lovely guy to love. *grin*
After that I went to Nicholas (Zac). He said that he would only take a picture if I bought some tickets (this was said in a mock serious voice). I showed him my stack of tickets and he grinned, wrapped his arm around me and more pictures were taken. He is very hot, nice and Adam has a crush. *laughing*
Billy was my next victim. He grinned at me when I asked for a picture and said in a sweet voice, "Can we take a prom picture? I miss prom. It was such a great time." Now who could say no to that? *laughing* So we had our prom picture taken. He was king and I was the court jester *laughing* I actually think it turned out really well.
I went to Jake next. He is love. Just a very cool guy. Once again two pictures were taken. By this point I was calling Adam my hottie photographer. *laughing*
Last on my list was Caitlin. Once again she was very sweet. She also said she looked forward to seeing me and Adam at the bar. *grin*
After that it was time to change and head to the bar...
