Tiffany, Denise, and I showed up armed with our silly sign to attract attention and relieved that we were probably the only people there. We hung around for a few hours, and after a few frustrating conversations with security, finally figured out where the public was supposed to stand, which was right across the street from where the limos were to drop celebrities off.
At this point we were feeling good about our spot. Rumor was that people were gonna show around 3, but that didn't happen until much later. In the meantime we chatted about Hunger Games with people who had and hadn't read the books, thanked people who gave us compliments on our Hunger Games shirts, and our bestie even made our stakeout spot a foursquare check in.

Josh: A shorter guy put on his jacket, but his back was to us. It was night at this point, and while staring into the bright lights, it became harder and harder for us to decipher who people were. I was pretty sure it was Josh, but a little afraid to call out to him. "JOSH!" I yelled. But he didn't turn around (most of the celebs turned around when you called their name). When I finally saw his profile, we continued to call his name because I was sure it was him. But nothing. A few minutes later we got confirmation it was him since every celeb that came onto the red carpet was announced. Disappointment. Out of all the celebrities in the world, he seems like the one who would turn around and wave. Maybe he didn't hear us, I don't know. I still wonder if he would have turned around had I addressed him as Peeta...
Liam: Oh, he was THE BEST. THE BEST! When we figured out it was him, it was hard to yell over everyone yelling for Miley. We yelled, "LIAM! LIAM!" and no acknowledgement. Well, I wasn't gonna have this happen twice. I had no other option, so I leaned over the barricade and yelled "GALE!!" as loud as I could. Just as he was about to vanish from sight, he turned in our direction and gave us a wave. It was a small wave, but it really meant a lot!!
We can't wait until the next time we can do this all over again!
Check out the other stars we were able to see under the cut!
