Yesterday was my first official day in California, ever.
My sister took me to Disneyland for the day where first we found this:
However, before I can share any of those, I have to share this:
I met Matthew Gray Gubler, twice.
We were leaving Tom Sawyer Island and I saw him waiting for the next raft.
I made my sister try to get a picture, but that didn't go so well.
Then she was fishing through her bag thinking she had lost something (this happened several times throughout the day).
I looked back at the raft boarding on the island and saw he was on it.
If we're still standing here when he gets off, I'm asking for a picture.
No, you're not.
Yes, I am.
We won't be here.
She found what she wanted just as he got off and said "Have him sign this: [my ticket to Disneyland]."
Then, lunatic I am, I pretty much lunged at him.
Holy Christmas, can I take a picture with you?
Yes, of course.
Awesome! Oh, and could you sign this?
Sure, oh you've got an autograph book?
No, it's my ticket.
Great, what's your name?
[not-The-Sheriff-because-I-don't-have-any-of-my-boots-with-me], don't even bother with my last name, it's crazy.
What is it?
[my REAL last name]
That's great. My last name's Gubler.
Yeah, I know. We [gesturing my sister] get all sorts of mispronunciations with ours [listing off variations].
Here's your ticket, I drew him new eyes too.
My sister was super impressed with just how pumpkin nice he is and then a woman asked us who he is and with a stunned face told us, "He just took a pitcure for us on the island, I had no idea."
Awesome possum, lady, awesome possum.
So we carry on with our crazy picture day eventually making our way to the Indiana Jones ride.
There he is, again.
But, classy dame that I am, I'm not going to run the huge distance between us and scare him, this time.
Instead I decide to myself that if our paths cross I'll go in for a high five.
Which I do after the ToonTown crazy pictures (though I altered my path slightly to avoid a couple of strollers that would have made it impossible and thus may have looked as though I jumped out of nowhere like an awkwardly-dressed ninja).
Holy Christmas, high five this time?
[high fiving me] Hi, how are you?
So, I just skidaddled on my way
For Gubler fans, this is the end of my post.
For those fans, or anyone else in the world who want to see my pictures, here they are with brief captions.
Hurray for parking and a surprisingly even haircut (which I did, myself, before my flight).
Imagine the chair and wall have spun around with me to surprise you.
Reformed pirate me (no ring)

Yep, I like me some boats

TWO PICTURES WERE NOT INCLUDED SO THEY COULD HAVE THEIR OWN POST
