Fame Monster

Well, it was bound to happen again sooner or later.  On Friday, I was recognized by someone who reads my blog.

The first time it happened was at the Eagle, and it was a fellow blogger.  He turned out to be a real sweet kid and I actually went to one of his summer backyard parties.  I was the oldest person in attendance, but it was still fun.

He and his partner have since moved to Florida.  (sad face)

This time, I was also recognized in a gay bar.  However, it was a gay bar that I’ve only ever been to once before.  (Some friends invited me out for drinks after work on Friday, and since I hadn’t seen them in forever, I said sure.  And they chose an off-my-beaten-path bar).

What a crazy, random happenstance!

Anyway, I’m at the bar, getting ready to order my beer when I hear a guy off to my right say, “CB??”

I turned slowly, and said, “Yeaaaaah?”  as I looked rather quizzically at my stalker the guy, trying to decide if I needed to reach over the bar and grab a bottle and break it so that I had a weapon handy.

“Hi!  I read your blog!” he says cheerfully.

Even though from the use of “cb” I sorta assumed he knew me from my blog, it was good to get confirmation from him.  I officially introduced myself and discovered that his name is Eric.  (Or Erik.  Or Erich.  Or Ayrick.  Imma bet it’s the last one- he seems gayfancy like that.)

I asked which blogger he was and if he ever comments– and sadly I learned he does not do either.  He merely lurks and reads… which is fine.  Although cb likey the external validation provided by the comments.  <== hint

And apparently he rather enjoys the Friday comix which made me glad.  I got the impression that they are why he reads me.  And it’s always so nice to get positive feedback (even if it isn’t in written comment form *cough cough*)

Since I was with my friends, and he was with a separate “work-related” group we parted ways after our drinks came.  But I told him to seek me out when he had a chance so we could chat a bit more.  He said he would.

After all, it is honestly a bit unsettling to meet someone who knows so very much about you, when you know absolutely nothing about them in return.  I felt like Deanna Troi when she lost her betazoid empathic abilities!

Unfortunately, though, he left the bar before I got a chance to learn any more details about my newly discovered reader Jeffrey Dahmer Ayrick.

Perhaps now that I’m calling him out in blog-form, he’ll post a comment or contact me some way so that we can open a dialogue where we talk about me some more.

Or at least talk about what he thinks of me.

I just hope he doesn’t try to hobble my cockadoody ankles.

    May I have your autograph? I like that sweet young thing connotation……

    That would have been the first documented case I’ve encountered of this actually happening in a gay bar. By a man, anyway. I think it’s a form of greeting for lesbians.

    I lol’ed at the cockadoody hobbling.

    You’re a celebrity…

  5. Partick says:

    You deserve heaps of praise and validation for being the most consistently entertaining, prolific, witty, stylish, handsome, sexy, bloggers in the whole gosh-dang blogosphere. Why, I could just eat you up…with fava beans.

    I discovered your blog by stumbling on your Friday comix. Once you suggested discontinuing the comix and I literally screamed “NOOOO!” at my computer. I read your blog for a year in the shadows for over a year and still can’t believe I’ve commented or even sent in a comix caption (and won TWICE I might add.) I’d consider stalking you but there ain’t no way in hell I’m standing in the snow to get a glimpse. Other circumstances prevent a planned visit. (‘Um yeah, shut up before you even start.)

    You’re my American Idol (Pre-Hicks of course!)

  7. Zack says:

    If you’ll come back to N.C., I’ll be happy to tell you face-to-face that I’m a huge cb fan!

    (How huge? You’ll have to meet me in person to find out … )

    Fame Monster, huh? I was wondering why we never see you and Lady Gaga at the same time. Come to think of it, didn’t “she” wear those cockamamie ankles at the Grammies? And hmmm… cb…lg… rhymes…

  9. Sean says:

    Who are you and why do you keep showing up in my Google reader?

  10. anne marie in philly says:

    I came for the comix and stayed for the blog. plus you are cute and funny! smooches!

  11. Doréus says:

    OK. I have to leave a comment after this. No, of course, I did not meet you in a gay bar (heck! I’ve never been to the Twin Cities), but I have to voice my appreciation of your wit and humour… and occasional bursts of deep emotion. Oh! And thanks for keeping me in your blogroll. And if you ever come and visit (and translate, sorry) my humble window on the web as you have on occasion, be sure to drop me a line.

  12. Rick/CJ says:

    I’d be shocked but then you have that distinctive handsome face so it would stick in someone’s mind naturally. Why so paranoid to reach for a bottle. Do you owe the mob? Did you fuck over your sugar daddy for your penthouse? Your friends from work suggested a gay bar? And the other guy was at a gay bar with coworkers? I’m moving to the twin cities.
    Good luck with this relationship. Try not to f@*k it up.

    I sure enjoy your blog… I AM curious though – have you acknowledged http://theotherfamily.com/ in the past as inspiration for your Family Circus parodies?

  14. Buddy Bear says:

    I’ve enjoyed your funny, sexy writing for a long time! Keep it up! (the blogging, I mean) I’ve tried to post comments a couple of times, but I don’t they they ever appeared.

    I also came across you (…) because of the Comix. But I definitely enjoy the other posts. I know what you mean about wanting comments. I don’t blog, but I treat my FB like a blog and I do get an ego boost from seeing how many people “like” something/comment on something.

  17. Mark in DE says:

    Dayum! Recognized AGAIN by a blog reader? I live for the day when that will happen to me, but I’ve been writing my blog for over 6 years and have NEVER been recognized in public.

    I’m not a big fan of the Comix, but I love everything you write/think/say.
