P.S. Pearl, I fixed it in the LJ entry, but the photographer's LJ name should be melyanna_65. I couldn't correct the comments.

I was surprisingly calm, given the occasion. :D

Actually, I was just completely zoned out. Is that really HIM? This neat, petite, cute, slightly-tired looking American lad with impeccable manners and piercing blue eyes? Is that really him just in front of me, looking me briefly in the eyes?

Nah. Figment of my imagination. :p

I've looked at Melyanna's LJ. Nice! :)

I think you responded understandably. And admirably. When I imagine meeting him, which I do when people write reports about meeting him, I imagine being entranced and interested watching him with others, but then becoming disoriented when I actually was addressed by him. I don't mean "swooning," but losing myself command mentally.

When I finally made it up to Howard Shore so that he might sign my deluxe RotK CD, I believe I blathered. Instead of just letting the moment being the non-moment (for him) that it was, it was as if I forced him to listen to my appreciative gush for the ten seconds I had to unbosom myself - it just sort of tumbled out, like a load of garden soil out of the back of a dump truck. The same load of soil he'd been inundated with for the last fifty people, I am sure. Good, rih soil, but the same soil.

My daughter was looking on, a very critical observer. I asked her afterwards if I had acted like a total fool. She said, no, I was just like everyone else. I think she meant, "they all acted like fools; why should you be different?"

*sheepish smile*
