This is a lil story about when I met my idol Michael Cera...
Me and my best friend have loved Michael Cera for years, we have collected all his DVDs, even tv series he has been in and movies from when he was just a kid.
When we found out he was going to Radio 1 to do promo for Scott Pilgrim we decided we had to go, this was our chance to finally meet him.
We got a coach from Nottingham around 7am but it was an hour late, so 8am, we thought the day had started bad and was not gonna get there. We turned up at Milton Keynes coach station even later and eventually was told we wouldn't be able to leave till gone 12. He was due at Radio 1 at 1pm so knew we would miss him, we was GUTTED.
Then as we got off the coach to decide what to do we saw a road sign saying 'Pilgrims way' and that is when we knew we had to get to London, it was a sign! We fount out there was a train station a few miles away, so got a taxi and went to the train station.
Along the way we saw a few more little signs so we started to feel a bit more lucky about it. We got into london about 12 and to Radio 1 at 1230ish. There wasn't many people waiting so we got ourselves in the middle at the front of the barrier, then minutes later loadss of people turned up (collectors and paps).
He turned up looking cute as ever in his cord trousers and backpack which only had a bottle of water in.
On the way out he stopped for us and we got to tell him about our crazy trip to see him. He was so nice and lovely, even better than we expected. The collectors were putting autographs on my head and he was mimicing them. He took my Juno DVD and signed Michael Cera, it took him about 2 minutes to sign it but when he would sign other peoples stuff he just wrote a few letters, I think he did it on purpose because he knew we were actual fans.
When he left we were sooo happy and shaking it was amazing meeting him! ahhh
Moral of the story is if you see a sign and have a hunch, follow it :)
