yesterday morning i was going to write an entire post about how i wanted to stalk ryan sheckler this weekend while he was in cleveland for the dew tour.
yes, i know he is 18 - TEN years younger then me - but who cares?
i can be a cougar. rraaaaarrrrrwwwww!
i can't help it that his baby blue eyes and boyish good looks get to me.
maybe if he wasn't so damn adorable on his mtv reality series life of ryan i wouldn't have this obsession.
well last night i got to see his baby blues in the flesh.
after a fabulous spicy dinner at ty fun with wonger and miss mel we walked around tremont shopping and what not when we talked about going to see a movie.
we decided to go see the dark knight on it's premiere weekend, a half hour before it started.
you may be thinking, but what about tickets?!?!
well this is downtown cleveland kids - not the suburbs - and we were going to tower city for a show. we were thought there was no way in hell we were going to have to wait or have it even been close to being sold out.
we were right. we walked right in and the theater wasn't even full.
ok so, back to ryan scheckler.
when we headed back to the warehouse district after dinner to park and walk to tower city, miss mel and i were stopped on the corner of st clair and w 6th turning right by metropolitan.
VERY slowly due to damn traffic.
i look out my window to the right and i see these kids - skater kids i should say.
and there is the one and only ryan schekler and his friend tony waiting to cross the street with their boards.
obviously i yell out the window, "hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii ryan scheklerrrrrr", waving like a school girl.
he looks up, laughs and says, "hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii" right back to me.
then i may or may not have gotten out of the car and gave him a high five.
it was awesome.
back to the dark knight - obviously i am going to tell you to go see it because it was friggin' awesome.
my coke - cherry - coke icee was also awesome.
so heath ledger was brilliantly crazy and i got sad watching him. i also wanted to be the middle of a yummy sandwich made up of christian bale and aaron eckhart.
there were plot twists that i didn't expect and my hands were definitely over my eyes more that five times throughout the movie.
all in all it was a fabulous evening with friends and a celebrity encounter - works for me!
and now it's time to go drive to pittsburgh for teen's birthday extravaganza.
