Earlier this rather EXCELLENT week, we got to go to the special Wayne's World screening which marked the 21st anniversary of the film.
While we were in line, I randomly saw Rob Lowe on his way inside the building and I got him to sign my cast!
I was very excited about the event, but when some of the producers, the director and actors came out onto the stage for the reunion, I just couldn't believe my eyes. One of my childhood heroes was up there: Mike Myers.
I was lost for words. Speechless. It was almost as if I were watching something on screen, but this was real life and my mind just couldn't seem to process what was happening at the moment. Especially when the conversation between all the people that worked for the movie was over. When they headed off the stage, I noticed that Mike Myers was signing autographs. I rushed up to him and he signed my cast and I even got a picture with him.
This all meant so so much to me.
When I was little, for Christmas one year, I got nothing but Austin Powers stuff. I had everything from the dolls to the soundtracks and cardboard stand ups. I was obsessed with the movies and I'll never forget when my mom took me to see the third one, Goldmember, in the movie theater the day before my very first day of school. Kindergarden. That was 11 whole years ago, and to this very day I am still a fan.
I went back to my seat with my hand covering my mouth in shock. Another dream of mine had come true, and I couldn't stop shaking. I just met Austin Powers, Shrek, Wayne Campbell, and most importantly, Mike Myers.
I cannot explain how happy I am.
