Okay guys. I am still on my insane Clay high. What happened to me 3 days ago is so crazy...beyond anything in my wildest dreams! Hah a few people don't even believe me...and honestly I cannot blame them. but it DID happen!!

I have waited so long to post because I have been hesitant about explaining the WHOLE thing & posting all over the internet due to this: From what I gather 310965731765 (lol okay so an exaggeration) meet and greet rules must have been broken to get me my 'alone' time with Clay and to get hug, pictures, etc (meet & greet rules are more strict than backstage pass rules). A few people really went out of their way to make sure Clay had the opportunity to spend some time with me. The LAST thing I would want to do is get them in trouble for giving me the best time of my life, you guys understand? I mean, I have told a few people the whole story..but that is way different than posting it all over the internet where it could have ways of getting back to people who could get those certain HEROES OF MINE in trouble. Okay so I am just going to skip over the whole part in the beginning of the event where I got Meet & greet passes & then got 'promoted' from regular old Meet & Greet to get the opportunity to spend 'special time' with Clay. It would just make me feel safer. Sorry..here we go..

Okay so I created this art portfolio of computer artwork I have done with Clay in it. It was about 35 pages and actually included a few blends that I have done for people on this forum!(clay pointed out the one I made for Clayismine & Clubenrock..he was like what the heck is a cluben?) It also had some vector drawings & did and stuff. I brought it with me to the concert JUST IN CASE i met Clay, i could give it to him. So I am in there with Clay..no other fans or anything in there. Just me, Clay, my mom, Jerome, the other idols (on the other side of the room doing their own thing), and some tour staff. I showed Clay my portfolio and he gave me that expression that he gave simon on Billboard Night when Simon said the song was perfect! lol..he was so impressed! I was trying to keep calm. Actually, though, it was a lot easier to be around Clay than I thought. He has this cool & casual personalilty that makes him SO easy to talk to. I think a few times when we were talking i forgot i was TALKING TO *THE* CLAY AIKEN!!!! I felt like I had known him forever..So anyways..back to where I was..

I asked him if he would keep the portfolio. He got all excited...omg it was too cute. Then I explained that I knew he had met 100000's of fans and that I wanted something for him to remember me by. He said he would always remember me (*GASP*) and then HE ASKED FOR MY AUTOGRAPH! haha I thought that was hilarious. Me. Signing something for CLAY.Pure insanity.

Next he said he had something he wanted to give ME! So he reached into somewhere (i cant recall what..a backpack maybe? who knows..) And pulls out this chocolate star on a stick. It has the American Idol symbol on it written in icing and says "clay" undernath it. He says, since I can't eat this..i thought you might like it. (theres a pic of it at the end of the post) AHH CLAY GAVE ME A PRESENT! HAH LIKE IM GOING TO EAT IT! NO WAY! So i guess the story about the star-pop was (I later heard this from some dude who worked @ the worcester centrum) each of the idols recieved chocolate stars custom made for them with their name on it . On the back, lol it has a sticker that says "hebert candies..since 1917" so maybe I will call that company and get the full story on that one. Clay gave me his cause of his chocolate allergy! HOW SWEET! So then when hes like..yah I cant eat this..i was like "aww i feel so bad for you about that. Jeez no chocolate..i wouldn't live." he said..ehh don't feel bad, I'm still alive aren't i? LOL HES SO GREAT!

Then omg...he walks around the table and says he wants to hug me. HE *WANTS* TO HUG ME (one of the meet & greet rules that were broken..haha) The hug was so sincere and i felt like I was floating on my Clay high. He was so skinny though! I could feel his ribs..*thud* *drool* *sigh* SEXY CLAY!

Well, Clay and I had some really decent conversations. It was awesome. Like I said, he has this charisma that makes him SO easy to talk to! I am not going to go into great detail about every single convo we had, cause other wise this post will be 500000000 bazillion lines long, but I am just going to tell everyone some of the highlights.

So Clay was looking through the portfolio and came across this drawing that I did:
http://aikenforclay.com/vector06.jpg
And started talking about the RS photoshoot. He mentioned how he had seen a few interpretations of what color the sweater actually was. I think he said he had seen the colorized version where it was grey-ish blue and the other one where it was green. Then he goes on to tell me that the sweater was in fact PINK! Hes like "CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?!?! PINKER THAN YOUR MOMS SHIRT! (my mom was wearing this pink polo shirt thing) Clay started getting all worked up and doing that *adorable* thing with his voice where it gets all high when he gets excited. I thought that was funny. Then he said he really wished that was the color of his sweater because he likes yellow. We were both cracking up!

I also mentioned how he had inspired me to learn how to design websites. I asked if he had ever been to AikenForClay.com. He said he had heard of it a few times, but didnt know if he had visited. I then told him I am one of the people who runs that site and hes like OHH NOW I DEFINATELY HAVE TO GO CHECK IT OUT!

OMG I COMPLETELY LEFT OUT A *MAJOR* PART OF THE EXCITEMENT! Do you guys know the paper 'News & Observer'? It is the big Raleigh paper..they do lots of Clay articles & stuff...well a reporter by the name of Matt Ehlers I believe ( i have to check the business card he gave me again to verify that) had traveled up to Worcester to write a story for an upcoming article in news & observer to give the NC residents a 'taste' of all the events occurring at the concerts, so they could be prepared for the tour coming on August 6th. So Matt asked in the beginning (before I even met Clay) if he could follow me through my experience with Clay to take notes, get good pictures, and feature me in the article! Im like YAHH!!! it was so sweet...so i am anxious for that article to come out. He will be contacting me when it does & when he gets the pics developed ( I only personally took 2 pictures of him..im so mad about that...i was just so engrossed in the convos clay and I were having that I didn't want to lose that valuable time stuck behind a camera. oh well..im hoping Matt's turn out good..) He also happened to have seats near me in the concert..so he interviewed me after the show about what I thought about the whole thing.

OMG this post is getting super long. you guys are probably like SHADDUP ALREADY!! Okay so im finishing up the highlights quickly. I got three wonderful hugs that time I had with him...but the most memorable hug was the last one; his goodbye hug. I thought my lungs might collapse. It was wonderful..and a tight hug..and oh my.. i never wanted it to end! The thing that I find amazing was that I didn't ask for a hug once! He took on the initiation himself! HE WAS SUCH A SWEETHEART! AHH I AM MORE MADLY IN LOVE WITH THE MAN..just when I thought I couldn't possibly be more in love. And yah know what else? I decided that day I like natural Clay even more than madeover Clay. He looks even MORE gorgeous when you see him in person...oh wow those green eyes speak for themselves...okay wow you guys reading this post are probably getting mad @ me for the length..so ill post the pics now, lol and then I'm done..i promise..

Me & Clay (thats the portfolio he is holding...and kim c & trenyce are in the background)

omg you guys are wayyyyy to sweet! hah wow..

and as far as people not believing me..i dont get it either. I mean, yah its a crazy experience..but I have the pictures to prove it! sheesh...one girl, omg this was so funny, shes like "i think that was a fake Clay." Im like hun..i was there..he wasn't fake. Then shes like "Well if it was really him, than he would be all dressed up because I know for a fact that the idols have 12 hours of wardrobe & makeup before they perform." hah that comment cracked me up..some Clay fan she was. The idols didn't even GET to the centrum until 3:15 cause they were in boston sight seeing all day. (meet & greet was @ 3:30...phew good timing!)

Kelly, I'm so glad you had a great experience meeting Clay. I am super jealous. I'm glad that he is just as nice as others say he is. I wanna meet him & get his picture taken with me! unsure.gif

Was any of the blends you made for me in there? wink.gif

And I don't think your post was long enough! I love reading every tidbit of information about him. grin.gif

Pemberley..yep! The red one thats in your siggy now was in the book. I dont know why..but I really like that one I did for you (not trying to sound all concieted or anything)

I think Clay was a little confused with the concept of Keepers..but once I explained that I did blends on request, it kinda changed the subject lol. Im sure the fact that "claiming" a part of him would be weird and awkward to talk about..so i am glad that topic was dropped haha
