CRIMINAL MINDS: TIME FOR LUNCH & A SURPRISE.


Criminal Minds: In order to make my future posts easier I will be calling my CBS benefactor "A" from now on. "A" and I decided that it was time to eat so we headed back over to Craft Service. The room looks like an airport hanger it is so large. Long cafeteria tables are lined up one after another and row after row. Food is served on the set all day. Head Chef Hanna Mourad makes sure that everyone is very well fed. You walk around the buffet putting your food on paper plates and then grab a drink in your plastic cup and sit down on card chairs. The food is wonderful. Everyone from office personnel to the cast eats there. Background people sit and wait for their scenes in this room. It is full of people coming and going.

"A" and I grabbed some food and sat down to eat. As we were sitting there beginning to eat a HUGE celebrity walked into the room with Ed Bernero. I asked "A" if she was seeing who I was seeing and she laughed at me just a bit and quickly told me that I could not meet him. I was in shock. Not meet him? "A" explained to me that since he was in a meeting with Mr. Bernero we could not disturb him. I watched as this celebrity lifted up a paper plate, filled it with food and walked back into the room. He then proceeded to sit at the table in back of me with Mr. Bernero. He was directly in back of me. I could have touched him without ever leaving my chair. I tried to continue eating but finally gave up. I asked "A" one more time if I could not please just say hello since he was sitting so close and I could hear every word he was saying but again she had to say no. I understand why I couldn't meet him and I hope that you can understand why I can't even name him but believe me when I say to you......FAMOUS FAMOUS CELEBRITY. CBS trusted me to use discretion in my posts and I am always good to my word so I will keep my mouth shut.

As they left "A" went to her auto to retrieve the boxes containing all the presents from our group for the stars. My depression did not last long because in walked Matthew Gray Gubler asking if he could sit with us to eat his lunch. My wonderful morning just got a whole lot better. :)

If MGG walked in and asked me if he could eat with me.... i'm pretty sure i would pass out. Your posts are amazing! Thanks so much!

Jan said...

OMG! MGG ASKED if he could join you for lunch?!

Did you say, "Sure, if you bring some ketchup with you...."

Is he just as incredibly beautiful in real life? As funny? Teh thumbs?

[thud]

Diane said...

Ooo interesting! Matthew must be a real SWEETHEART = ) it was nice to know that he asked to sit with you. Such a gentleman.

allie said...

Since you had already met him earlier in the day, were you comfortable or nervous around him?

Emily said...

I just recently found this golden blog of wonder, and I must say you rock my mismatched socks!

Thanks for all your hard work!

Jean said...

As I stammer when nervous,I wouldn't have been able to get anything out. I might have choked on my sandwich, though and needed first aid...they don't call it the Heimlich now...but can you guess where my mind is going with this? ;-)

Jean said...

Thought about this after I'd posted (put it down to sleep deprivation). As the Famous Celebrity was in discussion with Mr Bernero and you aren't allowed to tell us who he was..does this mean the person could be doing a guest appearance? (which is when we'll find out who it was?)

nebula said...

Oh, how sweet, MGG came to have lunch with you? And actually asked? (like you would have said no . . .)

*taps foot*

*drums fingers on desk*

more please

Ben said...

sindee said...

Uuuuaah, it's getting even more exiting - I didn't thought it could.. ;-)

Meeting (well, seeing) a famous celeb and having lunch with MGG - that is excitement pure...

Ulle said...

Okay,trying not to go completelyteeny here but gasps, you got to eat lunch with MGG? Ehat did you guys talk about?

Anonymous said...

what did you eat?

what did he say?

what did you say?

Lin said...

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! That is so cool! More, more, more! Did you give him his socks at lunch? What did he say? Did you manage to finish your lunch? I don't think I would have been able to breathe, much less think, speak, or eat. Did you tell him I was fanfic-ing him a beautiful romance? (Damn, out-loud voice again.) Tell us more!

Lin said...

I forgot to ask -- on the chat message, you have a picture of JJ's door. Is it just a door, standing out in the middle of nowhere, for shots? How fun! I can just hear A.J. -- "Yeah, I got an office with a door. Sorta. Lots of door, not so much office." Heh!

you had lunch with MGG?

how wonderful for you.

slashgirl said...

MGG: what a polite boy, asking to join you. *G* He seems like he'd be fun to talk to; so what did you talk about? Did you give him his box of gifts?

Inquiring minds want to know! *G*

Elizabeth Bear said...

Is it too much to hope that foodfight broke out?

Allie said...

I would have just died the minute he entered the room. Died right there at the studio.

Melinda said...

I am such a Gube girl! I would sell a kidney to have lunch with him. Or maybe just to even watch him walk into a room. I am so happy for you. If it could not happen to me then at least I am glad that it was you that it happened for. I want all the details. What did he eat? Did you sneak out his silverware when he got done using it? Only kidding about that last question!

sheya said...

I hear that he has a great sense of humor. I would have said no just to see the look on his face and then I would have fainted dead ass on the floor. Do they have crew members to deal with fainting fans on the set?????

Anonymous said...

OMG OMG OMG. I would have passed out. Your next blog had better be a looong one, and very detailed. All I can say is that by the time my speech centers started working again he would have had a chance to eat some of his lunch.

Assuming the BIG CELEB will being doing a guest appearance later, you better promise to tell us after it airs.

LoraLee: Actually the big celeb was just there for a meeting and I honestly do not think it had anything to do with guest starring. But OMG it would sooooooooooooooo great if he did. :)

lulu said...

we want to know more!

I love this show! said...

That was the rough part of your day? (a celebrity that you couldn't talk to?)

If only every day were that bad!

CMF said...

Hey CriminalMindsFan here, I can't believe that Ed Bernero and a very famous celebrity were sitting right behind you and you could actually resist just tapping him on the shoulder after sitting and listening to everything he said. Plus, MGG ASKING to eat lunch. I would have died right there. That is SO awesome.

[x][!]O.o...3ne...o.O[!][x] said...

O_O!!
just trying to guess who is the big celebrity!!luuckyy you Jill!!MGG asked you that!!really a sweet boy and what did you talk about?¿
i want moreee!!!

violet said...

Eating lunch with MGG? How cool is that. Of course, I'd probably end up spilling my lunch all over myself. I'm kinda like Kirsten that way, always getting food on myself...the lighter the colour of the clothes, the more likely I'll spill.

You'll have to tell us all about it and soon!!! Can't wait.

Alex said...

Awesome. Just awesome! Too bad you couldn't meet the famous celeb but MGG is better anyday of the year if you ask me!

sophie said...

ha ha violet - me too! I think I might choke if MGG asked to eat lunch with me.

and how nice that everyone all eats together.

Lori said...

ARGH! You are the best secret keeper! It is a good thing you went and not me! I would have a hard time keeping my mouth shut!

Seriously, this is just so cool. I love that you got to do this.

Lori said...

You could have pulled a "Lucy" ("I Love Lucy" starring Lucille Ball for those who don't get the reference) and just turned around and stared at the BIG STAR!

Titania said...

Wow! Your adventure keeps getting better and better! I can't imagine how you managed to remain conscious while seeing - and meeting - all these fabulous people! I'd be in a puddle on the ground that everyone would have to walk around. LOL

Sarah said...

How lucky...omg..i would like simply die if MGG would just came up and asked to eat lunch or sit with me during lunch.

Very special.

Angela said...

If he had had asked me that, I would have been staring at him open mothed and wide eyed, and wouldnt be able to say a thing! (and looking completely silly all at the same time!)

bianca said...

He sounds like a real sweetie pie. Just the way I have imagined him to be.

harriet said...

I am sure you had no choice but to respect the rules but I would have been very tempted to take my chances and said hello to the celeb.

Kyle said...

he asked you to eat lunch with him? WOW!! gosh i hate being jealous, but i am!

Joanne said...

I know there is probably loads you can't tell us but I wish you could. Please tell us about Kirsten and Shemar soon before my head explodes and orbits the dorm!

maura said...

I am sure that they would have cut your visit short if you had not followed their rules but I bet you thought about it. Who wouldn't!

Anonymous said...

When he asked if he could sit down you should have said no just to see the look on his face!

anna said...

I would have died and then the show would have to send my limp body back to Germany.

Macmillk said...

Big celeb huh? Way to get our minds going, especially since you can't say who it is!

But wow, MGG ASKING you if he could eat with you? *heart flutter* So sweet.

Anonymous said...

I would never have been able to restrain myself so it is better that you went than me.

crochet95 said...

Jill, I'm so excited! MGG joined you? That's so cool.... :)

I'm so glad you had fun on your trip!

jacqui said...
