Boosh Dolls run down  
So I went to Amoeba yesterday and I got to give Noel and Julian their Future sailor dolls.



Here's what happened...


First off let me say, everything was incredibly rushed. I would of had more time if the lady in charge of speeding things up hadn't yanked my DVD cover from my hands and given it to Noel to sign.. By the time I was next, everyone had pretty much signed my paper so It didn't give me much time to talk to them.

When I handed Noel the box with his doll he opened the lid and peeked inside when he saw what it was he let go of the lid so that it quickly shut itself and he hunched over the table, turned his head towards the rest of the guys and said in a laughing sort of way "OH SHIIIT"



he then turned back towards the box opened it and took out the doll, he looked at it for a second and then turned and yelled at Julian at the other end of the table and said "JU LOOK AT THIS!" Since Noel got his attention I wanted Julian to see his doll so I walked over to him.

(I am pulling a really weird face HAHA)


So I hand Julian his doll and he's looking at it and I can't remember what he said but it was something good like "wow" or "thats great" or something like that and he shuts the box and he says... "ummm... did you want me to sign it? or...." and I quickly say "NO! It's for you!"



he opens the box again and starts to look at it some more... I tell him "I don't know if you recognize the style but I also made a doll for Kristen of Penelope"
[backstory is that there is an actress named Kristen Schaal who had a web series called "Penelope Princess of Pets" which got picked up to film a pilot to become a television series. She wrote the doll into the script and later I found out Julian was cast into the show and had a scene with the doll]



When I tell him about the doll I made for Kristen his face lights up and I think this is the point in which he extended his hand to shake mine (it might of been before I said it, I can't remember) but he says "You made that for her?! I did a scene with that doll!" and I say "I KNOW! and I'm really excited about that!" He was holding my hand the whole time... it must have been a good 4 seconds ^3^

at this point an Amoeba staff member interrupts us and I guess asks Julian if he could get a shot of the doll... My sister calls me so I could turn and smile for a picture...




after that it got confusing and I didn't know what to do... Julian was still talking but he was sort of mumbling and I could decipher anything he was saying or who he was saying it to because he was looking at the doll as the camera guy was filming..... I didn't want to interrupt and I didn't want to stick around for fear of getting scolded by someone.. so I kinda just panicked and walked away! haha

It sucks because I didn't even get to say thank you or nice meeting you AND I totally skipped Dave, Mike, and Rich...

If that lady hadn't snatched my DVD cover and given it to Noel I would of had time with all of them... Oh well.. hopefully I can meet them again in a setting where things aren't soo rushed and hectic...
