More Yum from Orem

Posted by tawna21 on Wednesday, June 9, 2010

I was overwhelmed, awestruck, hypnotized, and mesmerized today.  I really was just overcome with love and affection when David walked out onto the plaza.  Without sounding lustful, I have to say that he is without a doubt beautiful!  Not only his physical appearance, but his spiritual beauty is just amazing.  But we already know all that.  It’s just that when you behold it up close and personal it’s breathtaking.

I was sitting/standing by Dayzee for most of the time, and we walked into the bookstore together.  We were right behind Annalisa from Italy (annyo84) , she let us move towards the front with her because we were both short people like her.  We were right in front of two girls (I can’t remember their names) that spent the 10 minutes we were in line rehearsing what they were going to say to David.  The one girl actually was about to pass out when she got to him, but she got out what she had been rehearsing.  It was actually a beautiful scene as she thanked him for his influence on her life, and David was so gentle and kind to her.

I saw and talked to refnaf, bluesky, John_AF, pattierae, shawna (stidwell), cb, zerogravity1, momjulee and gemzone.  I saw lots of others that I have seen before, but don’t really know their names, and I’m not really one to walk up and introduce myself (I need to take David’s advice and go out of my way and out of my comfort zone—–says me to self).

I took some pics of David (I’ve attached 3), mostly outside because they were hurrying us right along because of his time crunch with the airlines schedule.  But you know, you never would have guessed that inside his pretty little head was whirling around the fact that he had to make a plane that afternoon.  He was just as calm and cool as a cucumber, and so willing to take a few seconds and chat with fans as they were in front of him.  Did I mention that I just love this guy?!  I so wish we could all be in Rexburg together–I saw a tweet from David Osmond that he will be with David in Rexburg.   hmmm….

I’m gonna go look at my personalized book some more (I actually bought a new one today for him to sign so I can use my used one to mark up as I re-read it).  🙂  Hopefully real soon, lots more of us can meet.

    tawna, how I love that first picture. WOW! You, along with all the others who have shared their book signing adventures, videos and pictures have made my days so much more enjoyable. I’ve had a smile on my face for days.

    I agree, it would be lovely if we could all be in Rexburg together. We need to have one great big ‘archufanfest’. Wouldn’t that be fun?

    Loved this! “his spiritual beauty is just amazing. But we already know all that. It’s just that when you behold it up close and personal it’s breathtaking.” SO TRUE!

    I dont know how he does it but like you said even tho he was hurrying to catch a plane you would have never guessed it — he always remains calm and gives you those few seconds of preciousness that makes you feel special.

    He just amazes me and wish I could have been there in that beautiful scenery! What a special time and place for you to be there with him and share that day, that moment with him!

    tawna – David certainly is a beautiful person both physically and spiritually and no one shows us how to live in the present moment like David – he never rushes his fans and he takes time to really listen to what we say to him – what a rare and wonderful trait that is!

    Thanks for sharing your day with us and I look forward to meeting you and many more fans as we continue on this journey. Of all the many blessings my ODD has brought into my life these past 2 1/2 years getting to know and become friends with so many other fans is definitely at the top of my list.

    Tawna…great recap! I was hoping to be down at Orem with you but had an appointment I had to keep. I didn’t get through until after 1pm so didn’t think I would make it down to Orem in time. Wish I could have been there but I am still a happy girl being able to be at the SLC signing.

    Tawna said…Not only his physical appearance, but his spiritual beauty is just amazing. But we already know all that. It’s just that when you behold it up close and personal it’s breathtaking.

    I too am in awe of his spiritual beauty…and it is breathtaking! Sometimes you can just sense the inside beauty in a person and I have always felt that when I see David. I really believe he has that “Glow” about him.

    I have been reading COS…Weize is once again “Amazed”!

    OMG!!!!

    The Champions’ itinerary includes a tour of Washington, D.C., a luncheon with senators and congressmen, and a tour of the White House where they traditionally meet with the President. Country music artist Mark Wills and 2010 Miss America Caressa Cameron will join the Champions for the week. Additionally, pop star and American Idol runner-up David Archuleta will be in Washington, D.C. with the Champions on Wednesday, June 9 for a number of events.

    Tawna:

    I was hoping to see your recap here! There’s good reason that everyone is quoting that sentence from your article, the one about David’s physical and spiritual beauty; it’s spot-on! Glad to see that I’m in good company and not the only one left breathless at the mere sight. David wears his heart on his sleeve and has no pretenses.

    This moved me, too:

    “The one girl actually was about to pass out when she got to him, but she got out what she had been rehearsing. It was actually a beautiful scene as she thanked him for his influence on her life, and David was so gentle and kind to her.”

    David has to notice that some fans are on the verge of tears when they meet him. We saw it in a video someone posted last night on the previous thread. He won’t embarrass or call attention; instead, he uses his words and his demeanor to make every fan feel comfortable. So touching to see this in action.

    Thank you all for your comments. We all share the love for one very special being, and that is so evident in all the posts and comments that come up. It was kind of funny when he walked out. Dayzee and I caught sight of him at about the same time. We both just gasped and grabbed each other’s arm to keep from crumpling under the delight presented by his awesomeness (a real word?). It’s hard to imagine in one’s mind from the pictures how much of a man David has become in his appearance. It’s something you have to see for realz.

    Pabuckie–Dayzee and I were fussing over who was to go first–she won, I had to go next because I was shorter. So, my thoughts came out in a jumbled manner.

    Yeah abrra–being with friends makes the event even more worthwhile–caring and sharing is always a good thing.

    AF4L–we are friends for life that is hard to explain to other people–they look at us like we are weirdos.

    Weize–he certainly does have a ‘glow’, and yesterday’s gorgeous sunshine didn’t hold a candle to it.

    SB–dang those airlines for not working around your schedule!! That’s really rude of them. Apparently they don’t realize what they should be doing.

    DJAF–it never ceases to amaze me that we don’t ever ‘get used to’ his aura, but then which of us really wants to.

    May God bless David as he travels thru the D.C. area that he will be able to reach the hearts of our politicians and soften them is my sincere prayer for today.

    Taswna21,beautiful recap. David is a living example of what one can accomplish by going out of one’s comfort zone. When he sings “You gotta be strong….”, he’s singing about himself and encouraging others at the same time. No one leads by example better than David. Again, loved your recap, and I hope to get to meet you at an upcoming concert.

    As for today, I hope President Obama and those other big shots realize that they will be breathing the rarified air that only comes from being in the company of Mr. David Archuleta. This is no mere head of state we’re talking about. This is David Archuleta!

I am so glad that he got this experience. I wonder if the Obama girls got to be there. I hope so. I know he just gained a million more fans with that song, cause he blew us away yesterday with it, and I am sure he sang it acappella too. How can one sing so perfect that way!!!!!!!!! I can’t even sing with music playing. He just amazes me to no end.

    Thank you for sharing your day at the Orem book signing. It was such an awesome experience, wasn’t it? I met you briefly while we were all waiting in line. I was sitting behind you and Dayzee. Like you I am somewhat shy and have a hard time just starting a conversation with a stranger, but being a fan of David is helping me do all kinds of things I never thought I would. lol I only occasionally comment on the fan sites, so I am mostly just a lurker. I do enjoy reading everyone’s wonderful posts, though. I will be in Rexburg at the signing and the concert, so I hope to see you again there.

    This is from Frogcooke over at IDF:

    From Gaby at Something Pitchy, what he wrote in the book I’m getting.

    “LOL I’m still laughing thinking about it. Okay so, we hand him the book and he’s so used to making inscriptions out to people that he automatically writes “To:” but then freaks out that he ruined the book because we obviously don’t know the name of the winner yet so he’s very apologetic and is like “Uh, oh no! What should I do?!” and we’re all pretty much dying laughing and my co-worker jokes, “Just put
    ‘Insert Name Here’.” Well, everyone else gets that it’s a joke but David accepts that and literally writes that inside the book, satisfied that he’s fixed his mistake. After studying it for a sec, he draws a line above it so the person can fill in their name and is like “Fixed!”

    Bebe,

    I actually tried cropping and enlarging that photo like you did in #67 but it didn’t turn out for me. Glad you succeeded. Guy could be a model and I would buy whatever he was selling.

    Angelica: I’d love to take credit but it was not me; it was the other beebeebeebeebee.

    As for buying what he’s selling, where does the line form? LOL

    Bebereader, Thanks so much for posting the video. All I can say is “chills”! What another wonderful performance of The Star Spangled Banner. David sings it like no other! WOW! It’s too bad more people weren’t in attendance at the game to hear that incredible voice.

    Tawna, I will definitely find you in Rexburg.

    Angelica, Thank you for the kind welcome.

    As both an avid baseball fan and a more avid David Archuleta fan, I am struck by the irony of David’s appearanace tonight at the game. The Nationsls were a last place team last year, and , although they are better this year, attendance at their games is usually quite low. The visiting team , the Pirates are the worst team in the league, guaranteed to draw few fans to the park.

    Last night, the Nationals debuted their young phenom pitcher and the house was uncharacteristically packed to the gills. Had David performed last night, 50,000 people would have heard him. Tonight was just a generic, uninteresting game, and you saw the multitude of empty seats. It proves, once again, that David gives 110% of himself no matter how many people are listening, and tonight he was the highlight of the evening.

    Every team should be sent a recording of tonight’s performance so they can play it on a daily basis before each game. The song cannot be sung better, by any other artist, than what we heard tonight. Of course, the next time David sings it, he’ll find a way to improve upon what was a perfect performance tonight.

    David put the best of every previous performance ( that I have seen)of the National Anthem into this one and kept it more reverent and more humble than ever before… beautiful, just beautiful!

    Thank you David.
    After a bad day/night at work, I come home to this. My worries are less and my mood just shifted.
    Not questioning it anymore, just happy for it. 🙂
    p.s. Nice number they gave him on the jersey. I believe it’s the new pitcher Stephen Strasburg’s number, 37. That is so cool!
    p.p.s He stuck out 14 batters in his debut last night.
    In closing, I would like David to wear red on a regular basis. 🙂

    Betsy, do I detect another baseball fan on this site? Stephen Strasburg was so great in his debut they will soon be calling him “The David Archuleta of pitchers”. Strasburg is probably glad that David didn’t sing last night. The 50,000 people who came to see his debut would have been too hypnotized and mesmerized by David to enjoy his dazzling pitching.

    Tawna, loved your essay and pictures (wow!) from the fabulous Orem book signing and sighing! lol yes, we came, we saw, we heard, and we almost fainted like that young girl. I loved sitting next to you and getting to know you better. I saw your picture in front of David when he signed your book.What fun we do have. Looking forward to Rexburg and seeing you at the fan luncheon. Thank you to everyone who post the pictures, videos, interviews, etc. Being computer illiterate doesn’t serve me well. David’s version of the NA gave me chills—hope everyone at the game had the same reaction! Love and hugs to all.
