Michael's BFF gets married! [Oct. 10th, 2011|03:31 pm]

Michael's legendary best friend Chris got married on Saturday, prompting this post from Michael:

Photobucket

(Which of course led to over a hundred "I'LL MARRY YOU MICHAEL!" responses.) But the more pertinent question: will Chris still be available for hand-holding at Cons, wingman at Madonna concerts, partner at karaoke etc?

Chris has a photography blog and posted this photo a few months back. He married the pretty lady in the foreground. Interesting expression on Michael...

When I saw that tweet from Michael, I thought the same thing. Who's he going to go to all those basketball games and concerts with? What will he do without his wingman?

On a completely shallow note: how is MR even real? Who looks like that in real life?

Maybe the bride agreed to give Michael custody of Chris for sports & concerts!

Six foot of Gorgeous!

Oh wow! Look at those crazy pants. Poor Michael, hopefully Chris will still be able to hang out with his bud.

Um, I just realized I don't have any MR icons. I shall have to remedy this, yes? How are youuuuu? Did you go anymore to the Con? Simone sounds like she's having a blast. Can't wait to hear all the details.

I'm well, thanks - enjoying the last day of a gorgeous long weekend. I never ended up going into the Con; I did stop by on Friday to see if SV guest actor Elias Toufexis was signing but ended up having the following conversation with an organizer.

Con Guy: "He's done for the day."
Me: "Okay, thanks." *prepares to leave*
Con Guy: "But if you want an autograph ticket for him you should buy one now because we're closing sales."
Me: "But if he's done for the day..."
Con Guy: "He'll be back for karaoke."
Me: "But will he be signing?"
Con Guy: "No."
Me: "So is there a point in buying a ticket..?"
Con Guy: "GIVE ME MONEY." (I'm paraphrasing a little.)

I enjoyed reading Simone's report though!

There are great Michael icons here!

Hope you've had a good weekend too.

Aww! Hope he's not feeling lonely or insecure about his BFF. Or maybe he's just fishing for reassuring compliments again, heh *pets*

Love the crazy trousers too! Another pic (and T-shirt!) I haven't seen before...

I'm thinking it's from a charity bowling event in 2004-05? Only Michael can make those pants look sexy!

Well, he was instantly deluged with eager suitors on facebook! Chris would be hard to replace in the BFF role - he seems so easygoing and gentle and fun.

Hey I didnt see that post on twitter...:( Still dont...... Strange thing it shows up on facebook?????? And one of the other posts on FB isnt on Michaels twitter page when I look at it either? Strange...Anyway.....

Aww poor Michael, Chris and Joe and James need to find the boy a nice girl. Because on the holiday pics he is the odd man out 4 guys 3 girls. And yes I thought his expression in that pic was a bit odd as well.

Gawd those trousers are awful, but whats in them is VERY nice *evil*

Sometimes he simul-posts on both pages, sometimes it's just one or the other. I only see this post on fb.

James is currently a single guy as well so at least Michael has company! And women must be throwing themselves in his path all the time - I think the bachelor life just suits him!

He fills them out very well :)

Aww! Poor Michael. I bet he's lost count of how many marriage proposals he's received. Though, I wonder if Michael was Chris's best man or at least in the wedding party.

heee!!! Oh, he is just too adorable in that second pic. Those pants are definitely something else. He's just too pretty in that last pic.

Appropriate icon!

I googled & no, it was Chris's brothers. (Bet Michael made a speech or sang a song though!)

Not to mention all the naughtier proposals...

He can put away the Sad Face - Chris will never forsake him!

His worried little face in the last pic...

The bride looks sensible. Surely she will send Chris out for Boy Time at least once a week.

Chris's wife looks like a beautiful, fun lady!

If he ever gets serious about marriage, he'll have a line-up of hopeful candidates around the block! (dudes included!)

OMG, Chris got married? Is it the end of an era? Was this year's Dragon*Con the last hurrah? I hope not.

That last picture is gorgeous. And fascinating.

Thanks so much for the Michael updates! I haven't been on LJ in ages, and I'm not on Facebook at all. I love that I can come to your journal and catch up, with you and with Michael. :)

Yay, you're back! How was your trip? I hope the return to work hasn't been too wrenching.

That would be so sad! Hopefully Chris can still fulfill his Con duties - it's usually only 1 or 2 weekends a year. Mrs Chris looks like an understanding lady!

That last picture is gorgeous. And fascinating.
I find it very intriguing. It might have been just a random expression Chris caught while taking a bunch of photos, but it's interesting that he chose this one to post! Wonder what Michael thought of it...

ETA:
I haven't been on LJ in ages
I miss your posts! Tom needs to give you a reason to picspam him!

My trip was heavenly, pretty much perfect in every way. I still don't know if moving to Colorado is something I want to do, but Boulder is beautiful, and the people are very friendly. At the very least, I can't wait to visit again.

I can't believe I haven't posted (or commented much, for that matter) in five months. I need to get my LJ groove back!

Fly-by post to ask: Is Eric saying the Pledge of Allegiance?

:P

Gorgeous photo, but Michael's face is pretty enigmatic, yes, no?

He's definitely having some kind of moment!

Here's the link to Chris's blog! Many gorgeous Michael shots.
