I Got To Meet a Childhood Hero Today

Well, sort of. I met the actor at least.

This weekend is our labour weekend and we have the Armageddon (Comic Con) here. Richard Dean Anderson (Macgyver and Stargate) was one of the guests and I managed to get tickets to get a photo session with him and an autograph for a dear friend.

He was very sweet. Of course, he's put on a bit of weight since he was in Stargate but still recognisable. Anyway, he said, thanks for waiting (we had to stand in line for two hours).

I remember watching Macgyver as a teenager and it was a thrill to meet someone I admired.

So, here's the pic from the photo session:

I didn't manage to get a lot of photos - it was so crowded. But I did manage to find these guys:

And I did find a Dalek in my travels:

A very tiring day. It was my first time ever going to Armageddon and I wouldn't have gone if it hadn't been for Richard. Of course, if someone else ever decides to come, you can bet I'll be there.

So cool; sounds like it was fun!

Some trivia you may already know: MacGyver has become a verb!



MacGyver

(verb) : To make use of surrounding materials to build a contraption or to get out of life's crazy things.

I was MacGyvering when I was stranded on the island.

I was glad I got the chance to meet him. He's one of the few actors I really admire.

I'd been thinking about going for years, but never had the motivation, until I heard Richard was coming. You're right. They are fun. And he was so awesome.
