Guess I´m an owl after all...or a vampire...LOL  
Seriously...I never have problem with sleeping during the night, but last night had been totally weird - must be because of the moon being in my sign now..that always throws me off track - in one way or another.

I went to sleep by 10 pm, trying to get used to an earlier sleeping time because of my early shift (4 days from tomorrow on), but guess what?? My body has a different sight on things!! LOL
First, I must´ve dreamed something bc I remember myself sitting up, putting my glasses on and looking frantically around my room, finding everything okay then trying to go back to sleep, which I didn´t succeed. A few minutes later my cell whinnies - yup, that´s my ringtone for getting a message LOL - @ morgentau - good news, I got your messages - at 1 am!! *rofl*
And from that moment on, I had been so awake that I probably could´ve gotten up and done some cleaning - if I´d wanted that..LOL Had been tossing and turning until half past 2, then I decided to try to watch TV - which you have to know has no affect on me for getting sleepy..but hey, at least I wanted to give it a try LOL
Well..I was zapping through the program (trust me, there´s NOTHING on that´s worth watching at that time - like something light and easy to doze off to) decided then to watch a documentary thingy about antient Greece and Egypt..you know, difficult subjects should make you tired at some point - but then I got so caught up that I had to finish it...by then it had been 3:30 am and I had been wide awake - YAY me! LOL I zapped some more and then something caught my eye...True Blood!!! I totally blame it on my nocturnal weirdness - and let me tell you one thing...it doesn´t get better - neither at that time of the night, nor in German!! LOL 
But I laughed so hard at the ridiculousness of the show that I had been evenmore awake...*headdesk*.
By 4:20 am I thought "hey, tomorrow at the same time, you have to get up" and that made me fear for tomorrow...but even after another hour - "great, tomorrow I´ll be heading off to work by now" - I hadn´t slept a single minute...finally around 6 am I managed to fall asleep.woke up at 8:45 am though...and now I´m suuuuuuuper tired and I have no clue how to survive tomorrow. GREAT - JUST GREAT!



Anyway..other topic:

I got the info that the J2 photo op for Asylum 2 will cost € 165. That´s insane!!!!!
I´m honest - I would´ve the money, but I still don´t know if it´s worth it...I mean, on one hand, it´s a once in a life-time opportunity (hell, I have no idea if there´s ever going to be another SPN-Con) and it would be awesomesauce to have a photo with Manu and me (@ Manu - don´t worry - just see it as an early birthdaygift, okey dokey?)  AND J² (*squeeeeeeeeeeeee*)  and I´m verrrry tempted, but on the other hand..do I really want to throw that much money at RE?
As far as I know, a Jared autograph will cost €50 and that´s A LOT - even for Jared...boy, and what if there´s a Jared photo op? I don´t know which decision would be wiser a single photo shoot with each of the boys or the J² one....I really really really want one (well, if I´m (or better Manu and me) one of the lucky names that gets randomly picked anyway), but then...it REALLY is a lot of money...*sigh* And on top of that I promised my little cousin an autograph from both guys...but I don´t think I can keep this promise..*sighs some more*

What do you guys think? Are the prices okay or too expensive? What have you payed for the J´s photo ops at other Cons? Would you be willing to pay that amount of money? I´m clueless about what to do! So please, throw all your opinions at me - I´m desperate!!! HELP!!

Okay..I think I´m gonna fix something to eat now..lunchtime already...*yawns* See you later, alligator!! ;)


Love,
Andi

Well I payed a bit over 100 Euro for the J2 shoot and I think 40 or something for the single ones...I would never pay that much money! Especially 50 Euro for an autograph???? I got one for free and the other two weren't that expensive I think it was super cheap two years ago...there you see that Rogue just wants to earn money when they are suddenly that much more expensive...

If you are that tired you should take a nap because otherwise you might be too tired to fall asleep later...know that from experience.
Andrea: tiny dog vs huge dog: WTF?lupina78 on March 31st, 2011 11:33 am (UTC)
Okay..your prices had been way more reasonable!! It´s crazy how much money they want from us!
Even the Jason Manns concert ticket went up..not by much that´s for sure, but still..last year we paid 10 Euros this year it´s already up to 12..I don´t see the reason here..he´s still the same guy he had been last year...

Oh I´m planning on taking a nap soon-ish! *smiles*

They really are!! And again..it´s typical that the whole action takes place tomorrow at 9 when I have to work from 6 on...but maybe I´ll try anyway..you think single ops would be better? *sigh* I´m soooo undecided!

Still haven´t found someone who´s willing to share? :( I still keep my fingers crossed for you - that HAS TO WORK OUT!! It simply has to!

Manu: headdesksweetgirl7808 on March 31st, 2011 01:28 pm (UTC)
I'm with you about the weird night thing. I woke up a lot and I always dreamed about work. *sigh*

About the pic. Well... don't ask me. If I had the money I would buy a J2 AND a single one with Jared, because we already have a single one with Jensen. *gg*
And hell it's really a lot money for one pic. But on the other side... will we ever get another chance to get one? And the autographs... hell I really don't know what to do!

No help here - sorry!!

*smooches*
Andrea: Caution: reminding me of SPNlupina78 on March 31st, 2011 03:25 pm (UTC)
Oh noes!! That´s even more horrible then...dreaming about work..*shudders* I won´t allow my subconsious to bring on SUCH a stupid thing to dream about..*shakes head fiercely*
But can you see how desperate I was? Watching TB in the middle of the night!
At some point I thought "Yay, I totally could call Manu now, she should be up by now" *rofl*


*sigh* I really don´t know..my plan for this thing..I´ll for the J2 op, we´ll see if we get one, if not, we´ll try to get a Jared op - we should manage to get at least one out of two, don´t you think? ;)

The autographs are another thingy...50 Euros for Jared alone is expensive enough, but I really don´t know how we should manage to bring Shelly and Anna one *sigh*

But, we still have 49 days to decide what to do, so I´ll try to not go crazy until then..*rofl* (which is sooo hard to do!)

*smoooooches back*

deanvica23deanvica23 on March 31st, 2011 01:28 pm (UTC)
as we spoke of thatyou what i think on the ops j2,coffe lounge jensen.
I have my op j2 asylum 3 72 euros. So without me 165 euros for a photo noooooooooooo But i understand that you want one time a op with j2. When you make a op with a friend how that work? You pay half half the prize or each pay the prize for one photo? I don't shared never a op with a friend.
it's expensive 50 euros the auto of jared. Yes there will have ops with jared but we will be that at the con. If you have a op with jensen maybe take rather single jared and autos.Rogue now have the prizes of creation and roma but until 2009 it's not expensive.For me all this prizes are crasy just to have photos with actors even if i adore them. As you are alone, not of kids you can to offer you this pleasure.
Andrea: Dean :(lupina78 on March 31st, 2011 03:30 pm (UTC)
I only do share photo ops..you´re right, you just pay half of the prize..Manu and I are sharing again, like we did last year..part of it is bc it´s cheaper, the other part is that we are too chicken to do it on our own! LOOL
I´m considering the single Jared op too...still, I don´t know what´s the right thing to do *sigh*
Really?? Creation and Rome always had been the most expensive ones, now Rogue has the same prizes? Well..at least they learned SOMETHING from the other cons LOL

That´s exactly what I am thinking too..I have no kids, no family where I have to spend my money on, it´s just me - and I work hard for my money, so why not? But an other part of me is, that I was raised to take care of my money, to save it for hard times where I would need my money and not spending it on such things as photos and autographs..it´s sooo difficult to decide! *sigh*

i have been having a rough time sleeping myself. I keep having wierd dreams. One dream i had the othe rnight (that i can't remember now) i woke up going "uh, that would have been a good episode of SPN" LOL. Sam and Dean were in it and everything, i jsut can't remember the story
Andrea: Sammy HUHlupina78 on March 31st, 2011 03:37 pm (UTC)
Weird! And it´s not even full moon!
But hey, if you dream about Sam and Dean it´s not that a bad dream after all! ;D
aelia1980aelia1980 on March 31st, 2011 02:53 pm (UTC)
Hi hon :)

About the prices for autographs and PhotoOps... Good question. Compared to other con, the prices are okay. I paid 165 € for my J² PhotoOp at JIB and I just had a look at the autograph prices and there you pay. And I think compared to the US cons these prices are okay. The Js have their prices and that certainly is something you can disagree and argue a lot about but in the end that´s the way it is and I think all we fans have to decided is if we are willing to pay. I was willing to pay - at least once - because I wanted a J² PhotoOp and so this was a little gift to me.

And btw, you can kill me now but TrueBlood isn´t that bad. Of course it isn´t Supernatural (what is ;)) but it gets better after you survive the first season ;).
Andrea: Damon = Pure Dangerlupina78 on March 31st, 2011 03:46 pm (UTC)
Really? I mean, sure thing, the US Cons are way more expensive, but they also have more fun LOL What I mean is, that I fear for Rogue to do the no-touch-policy again like they did last time in Birmingham...and I´m not paying €165 for just standing next to those gorgeous guys without touching (hug or such) The US Con photo ops are always so special and fun and unique and I´d be willing to pay the prize if I KNOW we are going to have that too, but knowing Rogue I highly doubt that...but then again, I see it like you do..as a gift to myself - who knows if I´d ever get the chance again, right? *sigh*

LOL Not killing you at all! ;) Of course, it´s no comparision to SPN (wouldn´t work anyway) but for me it doesn´t do the trick..I don´t find the dialogues interesting, the charas are so pale (and I don´t mean vampire-pale LOL) and so on..
My best friend and I try to get over the evil hiatus with watching S2 of TB (currently at 209) but besides laughing our asses off about the ridiculousness (is that a word??) it´s not really what I´d call a good show in the common sense..*sigh* Okay...Eric is fun bc he has this evil-vamp attitude - but that´s all...

And now I hope you don´t plan to kill me! *rofl*

hehe, seems we`ve been awake at the same time. I was having some BSG (and ani) fun until 3.30 in the morning.

as for the ticket, well, that`s a lot of money, but at the end, I`ve paid only 10€ *ish* less for the J² LA photo Ops. And I wasn`t even IN the picture *johl*

(at least I`ve been able to snuggle with Jensen in LA *le sigh*)

and yeah, it`s like you mentioned already, the LA picture, although expensive also, was made of awesome, all along the way. We had a blast, before, during, and after.

With AE2, I`m not sure I`d be willing to pay the price. But, don`t listen to me, since I`m one of those who, barely but still, survived the A3. And after this event I`m not willing to pay anything RE anymore.

(says the one who did spend a crapload of money recently, only to get her grabby hands on JDM wahahaha)

At the end it could be what you said, a one time only chance for a J² picture. And since you`re not spoiled (like I am when it comes with Photo ops) you might be able to enjoy what you get at AE2.

btw, guess who just finished season 1 of The Vampire Diaries?

my daughter and I, we bought the DVD`s recently, and watched it all in a row.

*wants moaaaa*
Andrea: Damon *dance* MADE 4 ME!! NOT SHAREABLE!lupina78 on March 31st, 2011 05:33 pm (UTC)
*rofl* Too funny! sweetgirl7808 had been awake at the very same time too..we should´ve met online then! LOL


And I am still sad you didn´t appear on your J2 pic..would have been nice to see! *nods*
Yeah, right..make me jealous..snuggling with Jensen..Pffffff *rofl
I know so many friends that have had a bad experience at A3 and that´s exactly why I am so undecided..bc I don´t want to spend so much money just to stand next to them without any interactions or at least a hug..don´t want such a photo...

LOL Oh I´d love to get my hands on JDM too!! *grin*

Have I ever told you the awesome story of Manu and my photo op with Misha? No? Well..we both are very tiny (me = 1.52 m and Manu is a tiny little bit taller) and with Misha being quite tall, we aproached him and said unisono "sorry we´re so small" - he answered something like "oh no problem" and almost kneeled down for us!! SQUEEEE! See, that would be something that´s worth the money if this happens with J and J...LOL

*GRIN* YAY!! Another 2 victims hooked! I´m proud of you and your daughter! *high fives*

*huggles*
blackpanther07blackpanther07 on March 31st, 2011 08:24 pm (UTC)
I have a very different oppinion for just about everyone in the fandom. I don't think any amount of money is worth getting someone (no matter how famous) to sign something, I mean what is it ever going to do for me in life? Something that after a couple years will get lost or torn somehow, then I'm out that money and for what. Same thing goes for spending the money to go see them, who are they to me? The answer to that one is very simple, no one, they don't know me and I don't know them and in a two second meeting I wouldn't get to know them, just who they are acting to be at that specific time.
That is not to say that I don't love the show and if Sam and Dean were real I'd love to meet them (as well as the Impala ;) but the guys who play them, naaa. and this is only my opinion and I don't know anyone else who thinks the same as me ;)
Andrea: J2 - adorkable since 2005lupina78 on April 1st, 2011 05:58 pm (UTC)
I think you have a very smart (and healthy) opinion! *nods nods nods*

Of course I know they don´t care about myself at all - a Convention/autographs etc..are only a part of their job-description - nothing more, nothing less..I know all that but still somehow I´m teenie-ish enough to ignore that LOL

Oh my...meeting Sam and Dean (and the Impala would be soooo awesome!

Kellie: Jensen n Jared - teh hugkelzies on March 31st, 2011 10:40 pm (UTC)
Hope you can get more restful sleep soon bb *hugs* And you manage to survive!

Honestly, the prices for these things are fricken insane. Do they think that fans are all made of money or something? Remember when getting photos with the boys were almost half what it is now. I'm sorry you have to make this tough choice, bb. Honestly, I would go one on one with the boys... ;) Especially if all up it would be cheaper. But at the same time, would be nice to have a pic with them both and with ya friend! Really tough choice. Good luck making it <3 :\

*HUGS*
Andrea: J2 hug *I love you*lupina78 on April 1st, 2011 06:06 pm (UTC)
Hope so too! *hugs back*

Day one - survived! Only three to go! ;)

The prices are absolutely insane! It´s a horrible feeling to know you would have the chance to meet them upclose and personal and not being able to pay for it.
Manu and I will try to get a J2 op and if that fails (bc we weren´t the lucky ones that got chosen) we´ll take a chance with a Jared op..we´ll see how that works out!
Thanks for wishing me luck! ♥

*HUGS BACK*


Lynz: J2blackcalic0 on April 1st, 2011 08:36 pm (UTC)
Oh gosh, I feel for you, that must have been horrible. I hate nights like that, when your body needs to rest but your brain has other ideas. It just won't switch off! I hope tomorrow (today?) doesn't go wrong in any way because of it.

Wow, 165 Euros is a hellish amount of money! BUT I think, as you say, it's a once in a lifetime opportunity to have a picture of both you and the boys, you should do it! You sound like you spend your money very wisely so this could be like a gift to yourself.
Andrea: Paley J2 hugtouchlupina78 on April 5th, 2011 04:53 pm (UTC)
Sorry for replying so late...feels like I´m behind everything these days..*sigh*

Weirdly enough those days had been better than I thought, but as soon as I came home I broke down and slept for several hours. Guess my body AND mind needed to rest after all..LOL

I really think it´s an insane amount of money. Well, so far I didn´t get a mail if or if not I´m one of the lucky girls to get a photo op. I´ll settle for a Jared single now, it´s as much as Jensen´s (€75) Should be manageable.
And yes, I try to spend my money wisely, that´s how I´ve been brought up. But on the other hand, it makes spontanous shopping impossible because I can´t decide between wanting and pondering over "do I really need this? Is the price/efficiency proportion worth it?" Stuff like that makes deciding between 2 t-shirts horror!! LOL

crism79: SPN Sam Geekboycrism79 on April 3rd, 2011 07:21 pm (UTC)
Oh Sweetie I hope you managed to get some sleep in the meantime!

Hmmmm I never went to a convention but that seems to me a bit overpriced. Both the photo and for an autograph...
Andrea: Jared *dance*lupina78 on April 5th, 2011 05:02 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I did get some sleep - and it was much needed!

I got informed that the prices of Creation Con or Rome Con are more expensive..but that´s okay if the photo ops are unique and funny..I´m afraid that we get the "no touch" policy again..and I don´t want to spent so much money on a pic that 100s of other girls have, I guess everyone deserves a unique pic..well, but I won´t be able to change that, right?

Hey, hun, I have a question..are we still planning on the concert trip or not? Because if yes, I have to know for sure, my boss is already planning the working schedule for June and I would´ve to tell her that I want to take the weekend off.
If not, it´s okay too, I just need to know, that´s all. :)

*hugs you close*
