You need backstory: I'm separated from my husband but we're still together essentially. I pretty much left to really devote myself to alcoholism, which he is not fond of, but we still date and stuff. He works for NASA. One night I was feeling shitty [drunk] and asked him over to just sit with me. He comes over because he's epic and we end up watching BTR.
Eventually we end up on the episode where Logan visits the Venus exhibit and I blurt "OK you know you're Logan, right?" Because they're all fake stupid for the show it was obvious he was not flattered by the comparison. All the adorable, kind aspects of my husband Logan has. (Just 30-some years younger, which is probably his beef, LOL.) But seriously though, for a astrophysicist my husband has had some bonehead moments. One I love to recount is one holiday when we were dating another couple I was friends with gave us some oil candles. I filled them with oil and lit them and we enjoyed a pleasant evening and after they left I told my husband I was going to bed and don't forget to put out the candles. He stared at them baffled and said "How do I turn them off?" I stared at him incredulously and said "They're CANDLES! You BLOW on them!" Can't you just see Hortense doing that? "I just built a robot girlfriend, now how do I turn off these candles?"
As for Logan Henderson, and I've told this story a dozen times so I'm sorry if it's a repeat for some of you: I got to meet the band at a meet & greet last year in Irvine, Ca (GOD it was hot!) and they were all SO NICE! I had 4 VIP tickets so I made one of my friends with kids come as a diversion so I wouldn't look like a creepy old lady. I deduced the younger girl (7) has a crush on James so just before it was our turn to get our picture taken I teased her "Are you going to hug James?" She VERY STERNLY informed me "If I hug one of them you have to too." I blinked and said "Is that the rule?!" and we were being waved over and before I could think better of it I shoved her at James then awkwardly made my way over to Logan and when I held my arms out he smiled and held his arms out and we hugged. I was wearing one of those LED shirts and he said "Does your shirt light up?" I said "It's supposed to, but they gave me the wrong battery pack." (I'd only discovered that hours earlier: I'd bought the shirt specifically for the show. BOO!) and he went "AWWW!" and hugged me again - totally unprovoked! I was not expecting such a warm reaction. I've only met one other Officially Famous band and that was Pet Shop Boys (You might think you don't know them but I guarantee you've heard at least one of their songs.) They were big in the 80s (and were "old" for pop stars even then) and as they aged they've become very stodgy. I was only able to manage a handshake from them after a show (Though strangely enough the gay lead singer stared at my breasts the whole time. Believe me my breasts are nothing to write home about.) The second time I met them at an official M&G about a year later they had a complete "no photos/no touching" policy because it was the year Swine Flu was so huge (and they're in their 50's now and weird about how they look I guess?!? We don't care!) Camera guy goes "Next!" and we exit, stage left, and Kendall grabs me for a hug too. BONUS!!! I was so giddy I spent like $150 on tshirts and bullshit, haha.
Fast forward three days later and I have another show in Menlo Park (Just north of San Jose) which was HILARIOUS because that venue has this enormous bar and it was completely empty but for me and someone's crabby dad hating his life because he was at a boyband show. I had my choice of 5 bartenders staring into space doing nothing and they were all like "What is this I don't even?" so I clued them in and they pretended to care a little meh. I told them "The neat thing about these shows is I think for most of the kids it's their first concert." And that kind of made it click for them. I have NIP (Non-Important Person) tickets for this show (heh) but was inexplicably able to obtain a seat at the end of the third row. (Gotta fill those single seats, yo!) And I was all giddy thinking "OMG what if Logan picks me for WorldWide Girl!" because I'm delusional and then to my left I see this girl who has this huge blowup of Logan's face. It's FUCKING HUGE! It's 5 feet tall at least and I thought "If he doesn't pick her I'll never forgive him." and he DID! I was ecstatic! And for his WWG Carlos picked this middle-aged woman with a shirt that said "Never too old to be a rusher" and I was "AWWWWW!" Tru dat.
So after the crushing blow of not being Logan's WWG (RIGHT! If he actually did I'd shake my head furiously and go "no no pick a little girl!" because they need it more than I do.) I settled into the rest of the show and when they started singing the theme I felt dejected because "Aw this is the end" then out of nowhere Logan walks right in front of me, gets down on one knee and POINTS at me like "I see you woman!" Like for a long time! I FREAKED OUT!!!
I love Logan/Hortense. There I said it. I said it and I'm glad.
That having been said if at any of my Meet & Greets this summer this bullshit is on his chin?
I will fucking slap it off his face. NO.
