Meeting McBusted |

Hello

So as some of you know, I went to meet McBusted at their signing in Kingston yesterday. I had never been to a signing before and was quite excited but even though I enjoyed meeting them, it was quite rushed when I met them and the only ones who really spoke to me were Harry and Dougie. They both asked how I was and how long I'd waited and said thanks for coming. Matt didn't say anything to me, Tom said hi, Danny said hi and James didn't say a word. 

I was happy I met McFly because I've waited to meet them for 10 years and this was my chance, I like McBusted because I know that they're all really excited to be combining the two bands which is brilliant but my main aim of the day was to actually talk to all of them. I know it was busy at the signing and I appreciate that they had others to see but I was just gutted that even when I said hello to all of them and asked how they were, I was ignored by Matt and James. 

I waited for two and a half hours to see them, I was one of the first to meet them and the minute I got in the shop, my camera and iPhone died! All I wanted was to take a picture with Harry, Dougie, Tom and Danny, the people who have create the music of my childhood and who put a smile on my face without knowing I exist, to them I'm just another face in a crowd of thousands but to me they have been my inspiration for years.. I'm not trying to moan, I had an idea of what to expect from signings, I guess I was just disappointed that I was ignored by Matt and  James, I was so happy that all of McFly acknowledged my existence and said hi, well Harry and Dougie were chatting to me so I was really overwhelmed by that and that made the situation better. I know that Matt and James were probably just trying to make sure that everyone got to meet them and from what I've seen on twitter other people did get to chat to them, maybe they thought they'd already said hi and wanted to move on to the next person.

Lets just say that when Louise from Sprinkleofglitter said she didn't like the signings because you don't get to chat and its just a constant stream of people, I wasn't convinced because I hadn't been to a signing but even though I loved the idea of her show Louise live, I still thought that a signing sounded great. Everything should be done the way Louise has done it, its much better you can ask questions and it just seems nicer. 

Of course I know that they will never read this but thank you Harry, Dougie, Tom and Danny for speaking to me and saying hello. Its been a dream of mine to meet you all since I was 6, I'm now 17 and I'm happy I've had the experience. Thanks to Matt and James for signing my CD.  It was amazing that I was just inches away from McFly/McBusted and may I say that Tom, Harry, Danny and Dougie are just as lovely as I thought and I loved the fact that Harry and Dougie actually seemed interested in my boring conversation.

I almost forgot to mention that I went to get a drink and I was in the queue right behind their tour manager Tommy and I was even a little bit starstruck by that haha.

Thanks for reading.
Bye for now xxx
