Meet & Greet With Good Charlotte 11-20-2004
Pam won the meet & greet in Dallas and she took me along with her as her guest
We were alone with the boys of GC in the green-room (which was actually blue) for about 15 mins. We got to talk to them and take pics and stuff. It meant alot to me to get to go because I wanted to personally express my gratitude to them, especially Benji, for the song “hold on”. I explained why that song is so important to me in a previous entry. I am still alive because of that song. Anyways, Pam and I got to talk to them about all sorts of things. We got hugs and autographs from all of them and a couple pics. It was fucking awesome. They are so nice.
In September of 2003, I started a thread for fans 21+ on the GC board. A lot of people started posting and the thread is one of the largest on the board. We are known as GC’s OGs, which means Good Charlotte’s Old Geezers. Somehow shortly after the start of the thread, nutella became the product of choice for the OGs and it became our goal to get a picture with the boys and a jar of nutella. I accomplished that goal at the M&G as well as getting the nutella jar autographed and the GC OGs shirt.
I didn’t want them to read the back of the shirt, because I was embarrassed, but Billy pouted and threatened not to sign it if I didn’t let him read it… so I relented. They thought it was funny. I’m glad they didn’t take it seriously. I know it sounds cheesy, but I’ll treasure that jar of nutella and that tshirt forever, as well as the pic.
That whole trip renewed my desire and motivation to finish school and become a stage manager. I can’t wait. I also realized life is too short to let yourself be miserable. I will do everything in my power to stay happy. There are a few things going in my life that are keeping from being totally happy and I’m going to do something about them.
On this day..
