Well, it’s certainly been a while hasn’t it? How’s it going everybody, this is intern John here, and unfortunately, it is my last week as a member of the Morning Show family. So many people have asked me to post another blog entry, and I kept telling those people “yeah, sure, I’ll get on that.” And, obviously, I never got on that, as this is only my 3rd blog entry since May. But, it doesn’t matter because here’s one right here.
It’s been an interesting couple of weeks here at the Elvis Duran show, but today I’m going to talk about something that didn’t happen to me, although it most definitely should have. Chris Colfer, the actor who plays Kurt Hummel on the hit show “Glee,” stopped by last month to promote his new book. I was very excited to meet him; I even came in on my off day for the opportunity.
Now, a brief backstory on me: since I’ve been in college, I have been a member of a show choir, which spawned from my fandom of the show Glee. At the time, I figured I would create my own version of the show, filled with a lot of spontaneous dance routines in random buildings and hallways. Well, it didn’t happen. I am one of 5 guys in the group, and more than once I have been told how masculine it is being in a show choir. Listen here, condescending jerk-wad, have you seen me? There’s nothing pansy about singing and dancing to Aretha Franklin on stage. Actually, maybe there is…
Anyways, back to the story: I came in on my off day with my roommate from college, Allen Wengert, (@AllenWengert12). Giddy as a schoolgirl to meet someone from one of my favorite shows (used to be one of my favorite shows, I might hate it now, I don’t know), I patiently waited for the interview to conclude and the picture session to begin. Of course, the Morning Show cast got to take their photos first, as expected. Then, some other people from Clear Channel stopped by to get in on the action. “Okay,” I said, “You’re coming up next John. Just wait patiently.” After the executives were through, some interns were up, and I knew my time had come. I stood in line behind some of the others, and after a minute or two it was my turn. I had those excited jitters in my stomach, you know, the ones you get when you’re about to meet Kurt from Glee. And then it was my turn, and as I walked towards him…
He walked away. His handlers (in actuality, it was just his private security, but since it angers me, I will refer to them as the aforementioned) pulled him away from the famous Elvis Duran wall, and that was that. He said goodbye, and then they all left the building. I was disappointed. Angry. A bit sad. Allen thought it was hilarious, which I obviously didn’t. However, the fact that I didn’t get a picture wasn’t the worst part.
The worst part was that I was the ONLY person who didn't get one, and I may have wanted it the most. I mean, it makes the most sense; I am in a SHOW CHOIR! It would have been awesome to get a picture with him for that reason alone! My life would have come full circle. But no, I was denied. It’s unfortunate, and looking back at it, the moment is hilarious. But at the time, not so much.
My last day here at the Morning Show is this Thursday, and I plan on posting another one then. To those who read this, thank you. And now my Mom can finally get off of my back about my lack of blog posts. See you guys Thursday.
