yet my heart is a flutter  

such a little thing
yet my heart is a flutter
my name on your lips

Yesterday, Ed Quinn was on Take 2 Radio for an interview. I wasn’t able to listen in real time because it started when I was at work. Alas! The host of the show tweeted out a reminder and I lamented to her that I wouldn’t be able to listen because I was at work. The conversation went like this:

@walelia: I’m tempted to listen to @OfficialEdQuinn on @take2radio here at work but I must refrain. Alas!

@take2radio: @walelia @OfficialEdQuinn lol poor Valerie!

@walelia: @take2radio @OfficialEdQuinn Valerie will be happy if she hears him say her name during the interview. ;) LOL

The show started and I thought, well, wouldn’t it totally rock if he actually said my name?! What were the chances?

Near the end of the hour, I got the following tweet:

@take2radio: @walelia @OfficialEdQuinn Valerie you got a shout out from Ed! :)

To which I replied:

@walelia: @take2radio @officialedquinn yah! Now I just need to listen! Lol. Thank you!!!

I was TOTALLY STOKED when I read that tweet. I thought to myself, what did he say? Omigosh!!! I think I even squealed a little when I read the tweet. (At the very least, you must be amused by my enthusiasm.) I was SO GLAD that the show records their interviews but I wondered how soon the file would be online. It wasn’t too long because one of my friends started listening to it before me!

I’ll admit, when I got down to listening to the interview, I skimmed over it because I just had to get to “my” part. I did stop and listen to the one caller and I knew who she was from Twitter. LUCKY LADY! She actually got to talk with him. I dunno if I could have done it. No, I could have done it but I would have sounded giggly or so young or just flat out silly. Or maybe not. I think I might not have been able to think of anything to actually say!

After the caller, it was close to the top of the hour and the host asked Ed, “And would you give a shout out to Valerie because unfortunately she had to work even though she wanted to be here listening…” To which he said, “Oh yes, Valerie. Hi sweetheart, I hope you had a good day at work…” And then he said he hoped I survived the Mayan Apocalypse and such. LOL

So, when he said, “Oh yes, Valerie. Hi sweetheart, I hope you had a good day at work…” I had to put my hands over my mouth to stop from squeeing like a boy-band crazy fangirl. I laughed quite heartily and wished that I had been able to call in and talk to him. But then what the heck would I have said?! I’m sure I would have thought about something (like where does he perform live and would he ever trek back to the Bay Area for a show or two?). I would have probably have been super giggly and trying not to be.

Of course I snipped the audio to “my” little bit and then my friend snipped it further to just say, “Valerie… Hi sweetheart…” I use it as my text tone at the moment and I totally giggle every time I hear it. LOL I’m such a schoolgirl sometimes. ;)

And so that is my tale of 12/12/12, a day I will remember as the day Ed Quinn called me sweetheart. :D

Can't say I'm not a little jealous, LOL! He sounds like such a cool guy even if he thinks he's a dick, LOL!

I bet he's just lovely with the ladies though. LOL! ;)

What a treat for you. He seems like a great guy.

As for school-girl sqeeing, I so get that. The week before last I was in BC, on location, with the SPN crew and it was an effort to stay cool for 2 days LOL. Sadly I didn't get so much as eye-contact with Jensen (only caught a few glimpses of him while he was working or on a mission going the other direction) but did meet and talk with Jared briefly, plus watch him shoot some scenes. The inside of my cheek is still bruised from me biting it to keep from beaming ridiculously over the 2 days!

I'm HOOKED, I tell ya! LOL

Omigosh, how fun was it to be on location with the SPN crew?! I would have LOVED IT! And you got to talk with Jared!!! SO AWESOME. Yeah, I think I would have saved the inside of my cheek and just beamed like a crazy person. LOL

I had incredible fun visiting with R&L and the time spent with the crew was great. As hard as they work, there was also a lot of spare time spent -- waiting. For equipment/machinery to arrive, for shuttles, for building up, tearing down, cleanup, etc. L's dogs were a great icebreaker. Snuggle a 4 week old Jack Russell puppy into your coat and see how many people you attract like a magnet LOL. I barely spoke with Jared... only long enough to be introduced, shake his hand, talk about the awesomeness that is Hud before he was whisked off for hair and makeup (about which he was adorably embarrassed). He had Sadie and Indy with him and Sadie and Hud became fast playmates. However, she only has eyes for her man so when Jared left to go to the makeup trailer, she followed him wanting inside. I so wish I could've had a similar moment with Jensen but, really, given the surreal opportunity, I have no business being disappointed about anything.

L&R got to meet him & Jared the first day they were shooting in their neighborhood but he wasn't in the scenes being shot on their property (which undoubtedly will barely take up minutes on screen) so he was much more elusive ;).

I would have loved just being there with the waiting. So much to take in! :) And wait, a Jack Russell puppy?! CUTENESS!!!

Poor Jared, had to go for hair and make up. LOL!

Sounds like super good times. I'd be in some kind of heaven!

The waiting made for some great conversation time. Mostly about dogs ;). Yup, L had a litter of 2 pups there and I was holding one of them while she was cleaning up their whelping bed. That attracted tons of attention. I acted mostly like a fool when I showed off my "grandkid", Yukon, who is the son of a pup L got from me back in 2000. Yukon's gramma is still with us, my old girl Kismet (shown here much younger in my icon). I'm so glad that most of my lame or obsessive behavior was related to the dogs and not drooling over the guys ;). Apparently A&A (the guys mostly responsible for letting me hang around) were back at R&L's this week to follow up with them (make sure R&L had no complaints) and told them that they figured I was a serious fan but that I behaved well and didn't set off any alarm bells ;). Thank goodness!

Yup, Jared looked quite mortified when he admitted he was needed for hair and makeup. Commented on how manly he felt saying that LOL.
