A Breakdown of Emotions

Because I am CLEARLY not ready to move on from the subject, today I will provide you with a detailed rundown of my emotional state at various points throughout the experience of meeting Gary Oldman.

And when people get tired of hearing about it:

  • You are insane! Can I assume that the G.O. comment was an interloper yesterday???

    • Ha! Yeah, my friend Audrey having a laugh. Though when I checked my email at 6:30 this morning my heart did an involuntary leap out of my throat…until I checked the email address, haha.

  • Adorable post! I’m never going to tire of hearing about things that make you so happy cause I’m your Moo!

    • Haha AND my biggest fan, don’t forget that.

    • Thank you, T! I think GO makes a pretty good narrator, don’t you? ;) xo

  • You are crazy, funny adorable but crazy! I forgot to ask you yesterday, did he smell nice?

    • I would know the answer to that if I happened to breathe ONCE during the entire encounter. I’m going to wager “yes” because it fits with my fantasy of him, haha. xo

  • When are you getting your book deal? Seriously- even without chortle-inducing gifs it would be superb!

    Where else on the blogosphere would I get serendipitous encounters woven into intricate tales of extreme hilarity AND a selection of gifs to boot, I ask you?

    “Because I am CLEARLY not ready to move on from the subject ……… ”
