I'll be there. Not really by choice though. :-\ I'll be running a table in the dealer's room. Not Fun!

I'd love to get together sometime after the vendor's area is closed. I MIGHT get a badge to see Elijah also, but I really don't want to leave my table for too long. Do you know what his schedule will be like on Saturday?

It looks like everyone else is going to Florida. D'oh!

I'd sure love to have one of those if he ever comes up with one. Lij must have several pics in his digicam. Wonder if he actually downloads all of them. ???

It's kinda weird though considering that other cams are looking back at him... not really fans' faces. ;D

I really look forward to seeing all of Lilith's pics. She never did get to post everything from the other events held earlier this year. :-\

I also wonder what he does with the pictures he takes of the fans...
Anyway, this guy has been really busy for the last few days... Edinburgh, London, Toronto, Orlando...

HAHAHAHA...oh elijah!

Hey Aundrea, please give me more details please... please.. please.. concerning your gift to Elijah (i.e. t-shirt) and what his reaction was when he got it. What did he say exactly? :D Thanks! :D

Title: Re:Canadian National Expo
Post by: domzchick69 on August 29, 2005, 09:51:39 am

hey blue angel!

so i typed out this whole big explanation about the tshirts and went to post it and my comp froze! so i lost it all! so mad...took me a while to write it! argh! anyway...here goes again!

ok, so my friend sarah and i were sitting in the front row and slightly to elijah's right (looking out at us). we had black tshirts with white font that said "got wood?" across the chest like the "got milk?" ads. so elijah walked in and said hello to the room. kinda looked around and checked everything out. he turned and looked at us, staring right at our chests (i can officially say that elijah wood stared at my chest...woo hoo! LOL!) because that's obviously where it said "got wood?" so he leaned into the mic and said "got wood?" and everyone laughed. he was like "well, i do....but not right now!" i held up the tshirt we made for him (it said "got wood?" in the front like ours and (in lord of the rings font):

honourary...
wh*re of the Rings
Toronto, Ontario
8/27/2005

Presented by: the "Original wh*res of the Ring", Sarah and Aundrea

the whole wh*re of the rings joke started with sarah and i when fellowship came out and we were so obsessed with lord of the rings we couldn't get enough of it.

anyway, i held up his tshirt and said "we made one for you too!" he laughed and was like "you made one for me? that's awesome...can you toss it up here?" so i stood up and walked over to toss it to him. he laughed, held it up in front of him to show everyone and was like "got wood?"! the people sitting behind us had seen the back of it so they yelled out "Read the back!" so he flipped it over and laughed as he saw the back. then he stood up again and said "ok guys, i need to read this all to you". so he read the shirt out loud! he turned it over and said "honourary wh*re of the Rings--*looks at sarah and i* well that's quite presumptuous hahaha--Toronto, Ontario...8/27/2005....presented by: the original wh*res of the ring, sarah and...aundrea?" and he looked over to make sure he pronounced my name right...which he DID! i was so happy. most people say andrea but he said aundrea correctly! so i smiled back and was like "yup, that's right!". so then he said "thank you so much, that's awesome!"

it was great. he was so sweet. then when we went downstairs for the autographs sarah, myself and 4 or 5 other girls stayed until he was finished. so he got up from the table, walked over to our group, paused quickly, looked right at me (i thought i was gonna faint) and said "thanks so much for coming...bye!" and went up the escalator. so we all went to wait at the bottom of the escalator to watch him leave and he turned around and whipped out his digital camera and started taking pictures of us. he was soooooo nice. and before, when he signed my lord of the rings movie guide i was like "thanks so much" and he looked up and smiled and said "thank you for coming!!!" wow...i was so happy he was SUCH a nice guy. unbelievable!!

anyway, sorry for the long explanation! that's the GOT WOOD story...lol!

Your welcome, Enara! :D Can't wait for the pics, Starladear. :D


OMG! :o That's amazing, Aundrea! Thanks for typing up the Got Wood story! Woohoo!!! ;D

Oh... and sorry about the pc problem.

I was just wondering what that was about because a friend of mine, Hobbitangel typed up a transcript right here...

http://www.livejournal.com/users/hobbitangel4eva

and she didn't get that part right... at least not all of it. So it was you!!! Unbelievable! :o Wow! And Lij looked at you... wow!!! ;D And you got to give Lij a t-shirt... double wow!!! I can't believe what the feeling would be if I ever saw a paparazzi pic of him wearing a t-shirt I gave him... must be totally awesome!

Glad you had a great time, Aundrea! say hello to your friend for me... Sarah is her name?

Oh... is it all right if I re-post this in LJ land? Full credit to you, of course. ;)

Title: Re:Canadian National Expo
Post by: domzchick69 on August 29, 2005, 10:15:02 am



AHAHAHA...that's right!! he said "salacious suggestion"!! i couldn't remember exactly what he said! everything else in my story is correct. we didn't shout to him that we had something. he looked over and did a double take and said "got wood? well i do...but not right now" and then i said "we have one for you too!" that's when he was like "awesome, can you toss it up to me". everything else she has is right....but my account is more detailed. so feel free to have her use what i wrote if she wants to fill in the gaps.

also, feel free to use my story anywhere! i'm excited to share it with people!!

Thanks for the link to your photobucket account, Aundrea. :D

You might want to ask the owners of these LJs if they have any pics or vids, esp. Sulla and Lilith. I haven't seen any so far though I think I've read quite a few where your t-shirt/gift giving has been mentioned.

http://www.livejournal.com/users/bunniewabbit/729778.html

I'll try to see if I can fix those pics and post them on my LJ so you can get them, k?

domzchick69,
That shirt thing you did was creative,but I really don't want to be rude,but I don't think he'll wear that shirt. He respects women really deeply and something like that might offend them. I know it was just a harmless joke,but that's just my opinion on your shirt. I missed out on everything so reading what you guys have to say give me a chance to feel like I was there.
Elijah may laugh now about it,but it's ganna go next to hit Cunt shirt in his draw and it'll never come out. That was very creative. Sorry....hope I didn't sound rude...I don't mean too since I'm 18 and abit mature for my age. It scares me really. Oh well Hope y'all had a good time. Bye.

puddles,

i don't take offence and i know the chances of him wearing the tshirt to the next big movie premiere are not that high--we didn't make it for him to wear. we made it as a presentation gift which is why we put all the big detail as well as "presented by..." on the back--it was meant as a gift for him to remember Toronto, and hopefully us by. the shirt also has different connotations whichever way you wanna look at it. it has the dirty connotation or simply could be read like "got elijah wood?" like "got milk?". let's not forget that disrespecting women and enjoying edgy humour is NOT the same thing--i respect men, women, dogs, cats, etc but i think "got wood?" is friggin funny. my friend and i who made the shirts are also not 12....we're 25. we're adults, like him...and if anyone appreciates a good joke with some good, edgy humour, i think he would. he genuinely got a good laugh out of it and thanked us several times for giving him the shirt. and, just for the record, i've seen a pic of him wearing the cunt shirt. cunt is a lot nastier than "got wood?" or "wh*re". and "wh*re of the rings" is absolutely NOTHING sexual whatsoever. being a wh*re of the rings means being absolutely engrossed and wanting everything to do with lord of the rings. wh*re is also NOT gender specific. it isn't directed to target women at all...which is why we made him an honourary wh*re ;) anyone who would assume that was meant sexually definitely did not get the joke embedded in that--i mean, why would sarah and i call ourselves wh*res? now THAT'S degrading.

anyway, enough of that. like i said, i'm not offended. everyone is entitled to their own opinions. according to the 9 different people that wanted pictures of us at the convention with our "got wood?" shirts, the wonderful people on the forum with such nice comments about it and MOST importantly, the amazing reaction we got from him--including several thank yous for the shirt--i'm quite happy! not many people can say they were able to get that much of a reaction out of elijah wood, not to mention the 600 people in the room who erupted in laughter and jumped to take pictures of him holding up the tshirt.

sorry for the rambling...i'm long winded tonite! and for those of you with the positive comments...keep em coming! and enjoy those pics!! and may i also take this oppurtunity to say I LOVE THIS FORUM! everyone has been so nice and i appreciate the personal messages and new MSN friends...*wink wink* starladear--keep up those truly "salacious" dreams!!

Thank you for the great stories of all who were lucky to attend the Toronto convention and meet Elijah. The "Got Wood?" story is fantastic. Congrats!

Wood wows TO crowd
By Kayla Hillier
Published: Tuesday, September 13, 2005

Elijah Wood entertained and awed the crowd at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre Aug. 28, as he took questions from a room filled with a few hundred excited fans anxious just get a glimpse of the pint sized actor in person.
Known mostly for his role as Frodo in the Lord of the Rings films and more recently for his part as the serial killer Kevin in Robert Rodriquez's film version of Frank Miller's Sin City, 24-year-old Wood has acted in over 30 films and has ties to almost every area of the entertainment industry.
Everything Is Illuminated was screened Sept. 11 at the Toronto Film Festival and will also be having a second screening Sept. 14 at the Fest.
Films are not the only things coming up for Wood. It is no secret that he is a very big music fan. Recently he posted a track list on iTunes with some of his favourite songs and he's in the process of building an independent record label, Simian Records.
"I've been a huge fan of music for a very long time. The idea of releasing music that I believe in and finding bands that may not necessarily get heard and helping to cultivate something that I believe in was an interesting notion that really attracted me."
"It's really hard to ultimately be focusing my efforts on something else, I have so many interests and there are so many things that I'd like to explore and that's just one of them. So it's kinda nice to focus and think about something else for a while."
When asked what band he would love to see live living or dead, his answer took very little deliberation.
"I'm never gonna get to see Nirvana and that's just a real bad notion, they were obviously an incredibly good band. My brother actually got to see them, to this day I'm like, ... 'you bastard'," said Wood. "I have to say I love nostalgia. I love history and there are some eras that I wish I could have gone back to be a part of and bare witness to. One of which is New York in the late '50s, early '60s. [It was] an incredible time for music, these amazing masters of jazz performing in the tiniest places in New York City."

Most questions directed at Wood related to his experience and the rest of the cast of the Lord of the Rings, an experience that he still recounts as extremely positive and life changing.
"I think the thing that I love the most about the way Peter goes about what he does is that he creates an atmosphere that's relatively relaxed. He likes to work with the same people regularly and he likes to create a family atmosphere. It's an amazing thing to be a part of that," said Wood.
After a short hour and a half speaking to fans, Wood had just enough time to sign some autographs for some fans who paid up to $200 to see him, before hopping onto a plane and heading out to Florida for yet another Science Fiction related conference. Although he was able to discuss one of the best pieces of advice he's ever received before his departure.
"I got it from Mel Gibson," said Wood. "He said to me that there's no such thing as best. You can always do better, and that is so true. It doesn't matter what we do in our lives, no matter what job you have ... there's no such thing as achieving perfection or achieving the best. You're always going to learn, you're always going to grow. Keep moving forward and keep striving for better things. That's the best advice that I can think of."
