CRIMINAL MINDS GODDESS KIRSTEN VANGSNESS BLOGS!!

February 23, 2009

So I’m at work, see... like--three, four weeks ago or something. And Andrew Wilder, the writer-- (and I am so not kissing his ass--this is just true-and I may be repeating myself here but- he is CUTE. Come to think of it, all of those writers in our office are cute. The writers assistants are all gorgeous in their our right too, I’m not kidding at all about this. Seriously, there’s a lot of cute mojo swimming around the land that is CriMi) Andrew-- he starts talking about the fans and such and I start talking about the blogging and the missing of the blogging and such and then we are both talking about the fans and the blogging....it was a perfect storm. And here I am.

Hello. My name is Kirsten. May I sometimes write stuff and send it semi-regularly to y’all who moderate this sweet fan site and can you please put it up when you want to?

Cool.

I was gonna start blogging on my own or something but I got distracted. Does that happen to others besides me? Where you make a plan, sometimes like a BIG plan (one of mine as of late besides the “re-start CM/KV blog” has been to make this dress involving a t-shirt and ribbons and requires me to learn how to sew better.....)and then it just, sort of stops after the planning part because it all seems too daunting and you start getting all perfectionist-y....does that happen to you? Yeah, me too. But there is hope for us all, young friends, because here I am, doing something I planned on. Ribbon-y T-Shirt dress of Wonder, here I come.

So, we are in the middle of shooting a Simon Mirren script (again, GORGE. And SUCH a writer, which makes him all the handsomer, and his ACCENT. Do not even get me started on the accent. Yummy. I love my girlfriend but DAMN.) . Jeeze, I’m so teenage flirt queen today, what is up with me? ANYWAY. We are in the middle of an episode. I get to go away from my cave and be with the gang in this, which is always super delish. I have gotten a considerable number of script pages with Garcia’s name slathered upon them since our winter break. And the other six merry men and woman in the cast are as kind and strange and beautiful as ever (there must be something in the studio water....they are all so pretty and wonderful to me. Really though, it’s just the love. All the love, it makes people pretty. And I clearly have a lot of love coursing through me as I type....and caffeine, a lot of caffeine....DC time it is not:)

I have lines to learn right now. I’m doing a benefit for a wonderful organization called 826LA tonight. It’s a wonderful non-profit that supports students ages 6-18 with their writing skills in all kinds of great ways. I get to do a sketch with Laraine Newman from SNL AND Buck Henry. So. Awesome.

And here is me (note Evil Genius Grin) and my barnacle.



I will do this again. Soon. Really. Really. Really.

Love,

Kirsten

You can conquer the ribbony T-shirt dress.

I know you can.

Lemme know if y'all need a massage therapist on the set. I get to take my boards in June, and I'm freakin' excited about getting licensed.

I can honestly say I'm more than happy to be part of this awesome CM fandom, not only because of everything the fans do but also the actors and writers - wow!

digital sage said...

YAY! I have been trying to convince someone new to the show that you had blogged before on CBS, but they didn't believe me. I even went searching for a cached version of the blog, but nada. :-(

Can't wait to hear more from you. (I agree about Simon. *sigh* )Great pic of you and the barnacle, BTW.

Marcia said...

When I saw the blog this morning, I thought I was dreaming! Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to blog. I don’t know how you do it all – but I’m so glad that you do.

Hi Kirsten,

great to have you on the blog - it's pure fun to read your entry.

BTW, I always start projects and don't finish them... hate that about myself, but can't help it.

Hugs and kisses from good ol' Germany!

I just want to say that i love
to read your Blogs Kirsten!
You just crack me up! You are
so funny. You are such a sweet
person too, and so lucky to work
with such a great group of people
every day. It's really nice to
have a wonderfull family to come
to every day. They may be your
co-workers, but they are still
your family. I love the picture
of you and Matthew that you
put with your blog and the
caption of him being your
barnacle! How funny.
Thanks for Blogging for us, and
i am looking forward to your
next one!

What a happy coincidence. I was just (as in yesterday) poking around the interwebs to see if Kirsten had ever revitalized her defunct CBS blog, or something like it, and here you are write on CM Fanatics.

It's so many shades of awesome, I don't know what to say.

Kirsten! Awesome photo - the cast of CriMi seems to have a great time, and I love your blogging. I missed out the first time, so I'm happy I'll have a chance to read them this time - you rock!
Any chance that you might join in on the live chat sometime? *nudgewink*

greenfairy_mel said...

So good to see you blogging here! The internet wasn't the same without your blog. I'm happy that our favorite tech kitten will be leaving her office again.

You're one lucky lady, I would die for a barnacle like yours neither I would like to your barnacle, but I guess that makes me look as a stalker....

This is so awesome. You are totally the reason I watch the show. I hope they bring in more of mister Nicholas Brendon, as you two have great chemistry on screen.

Love the behind the scenes take on the show as well.

Kellye said...

It is so great to have a show to look forward to watching...religiously. Ahem, where did said barnacle's arm disappear off to in this photo? Mmmhmm. You are both beautiful, wonderful actors! Please keep blogging! Thanks!

faye said...

hi Kirsten! it's awesome to have you blogging here! And yes, I totally know what you mean. Blah perfectionism!

I...am totally brain dead right now. Zzz. Anyway, I'm looking forward to this new, Garcia-tastic episode! I'm also jealous that you get to spend your days surrounded by such lovely, wonderful people (with accents? no fair!)

Including your barnacle there. Tell him hello for us ;D

nezha said...

Damn, I love this girl.

patch-tank said...

Hi Kirsten, it's so great to see you blogging again! Your dress will be absolutely fabulous, good luck with it! And congratulations on your engagement!

Thankyou so much for your continued, brilliant portrayal of Garcia, she (and you!) is a fantastic character, a great role model, and an all-round delight to watch :)

Thank you so much for blogging over here! I got very excited when I heard about your blog post! =) Can't wait to watch S4 (I'm in the UK, and we're suckishly slow over here) to get another 'Garcia-fix' (Well, and a Thomas Gibson fix, but shh! =)) Thank you again for bloggin with us, you rock!!!

Hello Kirsten,
My name is Ghislaine and I come from Paris (France) where the show is a true hit on Wednesdays.
I just read that you and your girlfriend were engaged, what is very cool so, CONGRATULATIONS to both of you!!! :-D
(That's always a good thing to see people involved and assuming their sexual identity, still more when they are famous, what is must be quite rare in Hollywood!)
Tout plein de bohneur à vous deux!!! :-D

Kirsten, I super love your character! Obviously, your blog entry means a whole lot to people who are fans of the show. More power to you!

Ripley said...

Kirsten you are so funny!! You are the bright light on Criminal Minds. I always look forward to your witty comebacks. Thanks for the awesome blog. Love the pic of you and Matthew. Congrats to you and Melanie on your engagement!
\m/(*_*)\m/ You rock!

harleyman92 said...

Kristen, Where do I begin. I am addicted to the show, and to you, sweet Queen of the cyber world. You bring that needed dose of comic relief to the otherwise serious subject matter of the show. What I would not give to have someone like you to work with, answering my calls as you with Derek. Are you accepting marriage proposals?? LOL If not , dinner is on me if you ever get to Buffalo NY. And a ride on the Harley, if you like.

gbraeme71 said...

Bonjour Kristen,
I became a true fan of CM last summer when one of our boadcast hs aired during 2 months (-> I still don't know if I prefer watching the show in fench - I live in France - or in english so much our dubbing version is good but for the season 4, I have no choice...anyway, though the darkness and even sadness of some stories, I like more an more this show! :-D
And even if I'm a true fan of Emily Prentiss character aka Paget Brewster (I love ths actress!!!), your performing of Penelope Garcia is a true sunshine, funny, smart and all so, THANKS !!! :-D

As someone who's only just discovered Criminal Minds - seriously that was one awesome sick day a couple of months ago - and just discovered this blog this afternoon (yes I'm at work and yes I should be doing work but anyhoo) This is just so awesome, a letter from TG, chat with the exec producer and then a blog post & photo from KV. Could this cast/crew get anymore awesome!?!

Hi, Kirsten =).
If you want to write to any of you on the team, where can you do that? I would be glad to know. I love your blog and I keep reading it. I guess you have great fun on the set and I really wish I could see it. Sorry for my bad English, I'm from Sweden so I'll keep learning. I hope you will get us updated and let us know what's happening. I would be really glad if you could answer this in any way =).
Keep up the really good work, you're amazing!

Johanna.
