I remember, so clearly, the first time I saw Amanda Tapping in the flesh. It'll be four years this November and I can still, when I think about it, reach out and touch those emotions - as if I keep them in a tiny box by my bed and they're waiting for that day when things aren't so great, when you need a reminder of what a truly awesome moment feels like. And I go there, from time to time, because even though I have had many, many encounters with Ms Tapping since and each experience has always been a rewarding one, there is nothing quite like the moment you experience when you see someone whom you admire, so very much, for the first time.

Yesterday evening, I got to see Elizabeth Mitchell being interviewed at a "Meet the Cast" event at the Apple store in London. If there is one person on the planet who surpasses my admiration for Amanda Tapping, it is the gracious Elizabeth Mitchell. I cursed the ridiculous tears in my eyes as she walked out. In hindsight, it's almost a blessing that we weren't able to say our own personal greetings to the cast of V or shake their hands because I know I wouldn't have been able to hold back my emotion. I'm an emotional human being, I know this, and this was a big deal to me, and I knew that if I were any closer to her than I actually was, I would have cried. Not because I'm hysterical, but because I get overwhelmed when I meet people that I have a great respect for and because I can't often find the words right away, my body translates them into tears.
