So, this happened.

Today is my 3rd going on the 4th month at Disney as a story artist.

The time has been pretty awesome. People have been kind. There is free ice cream every Wednesday. And I haven't done anything super stupid...until last week.

We were going on the first official team lunch since I started. So I was excited to get all my team together.











And standing over there...



was the other John...

It was probably only a millisecond when this happened, but it sure felt like a full 10 hours long.

So I used one my many ninja tricks...

and got the heck out of there.



Then...

Joshua James said...

DebRiver said...

OMG, thats so awesome!!!

Fawn said...

Megan- He's around a lot lately. But I've learned my lesson! I hope I don't have any more awkward moment with him any time soon.

Josh/Deb- glad you guys enjoy it!

Tung Nguyen said...

On top of that, you forgot all about poor John R.

Nate Villanueva said...

Carrie Liao said...

You should have just gone with it and gave him a hug. Not like it can get any worse, right? Ha. Ha. Ha.

But seriously. Who doesn't like hugs?

GOGOPEDRO said...

you should'a just rolled with it... "oh hey, There you are john... You wanna go get lunch??"

Bobby Pontillas said...

Haha! Made my morning!

Adam Koford said...

I once waited in line behind him while he dispensed iced tea at lunch. I'd like to think we had a moment.

Chris Ybarra said...

Very funny story Fawn, maybe if you make more awkward moments like these you'll have one with Miyazaki too : D

DrawDoll said...

Hahahahaha, sweet post!

Debbie J-R said...

Fawn,
That is so cute! I think you should have gone with it too. "Wanna join us?" :-)
Deb (and Dave)

Clio said...

HAHAHAHA!! Awesome. Everyone has an embarrassing thing they did in front of John. At least you didn't goad him with bubble wrap like I did. 9_9

Stu Livingston said...

Lolll too funny dude, I'm grateful you're a big dork so you can make awesome comics like this ;P

Fawn said...

Tung-We did find John R. He was downstairs. I probably won't call him by his first name in public ever again.

Nate,Carrie, Pedro- All very good suggestions...if I was a little drunk.

Bobby- Glad to hear that!

Adam-That sounds so much more like a peaceful moment.

Chris-It's a relieve to know that at least I won't be yelling Miyazaki's name by mistake.

Andrea and Debbie- :D

Clio-Haha! Bubble wrap moment was soooooo good! I didn't think he looked our way though. But may be that was a wishful thinking.

Stu-Me? A dork? Whaaaaa? lol

Breann said...

This is fantastic. I Just love that moment where all time stands still and there's only awkwardness. The expressions are perfect.

CARRIE said...

Don't feel bad, tranny. I'm sure Mr. Lasseter will be the right John going to lunch with you one day. Why do we get so flustered around celebrities? They poop just like everyone else?

Kevin Lam said...

Hey, just wanted to say HAHAHAHHAWW!! People at work looked at me for laughing out loud at my computer...

Fawn said...

Carrie- I guess I would be freaked out about the same if it was David the boss. I havent heard the word tranny from you for so long. I miss you.

breann-thanks!

Kevin-hehe:)

Heather Dixon said...
