Karen Allen wrote my name...

I can't believe I forgot to post about this, but today in the mail I got my autograph from Karen Allen. You see, the lovely and amazing Ms. Allen has a Fiber Arts business. (Something Jen also told me about before Indy IV came out...HUGE points for Jen over the last couple of days. Actually, I don't have a points system for my friends, but you know what I mean.)

At her website, in the CONTACT section, there is an address that they provide you with where you can send a photograph, and she will autograph it and send it back to you. Or one of her assistants will send it back, either way... who cares, right? (Why do I want to say that last sentence with a Brooklyn accent?)

I happen to believe that she's just one of those celebrities who really is just THAT nice to her fans. Can you imagine how many "weirdos" (As Sam Eagle would put it.) have probably written to her over the years, and she STILL does this for all her fans. For FREE. I also slipped in the chapter that I wrote about her for my "upcoming" book on action heroines. I couldn't help myself. As a little geek girl, you're always sort of naively doing things with the hope that somehow it will land you your "big break". I just have to take those chances, even when my brain tells me not to bother.

Anyway, I just thought that was really cool. If I do "make it" someday, I'm going to look to people like her and David Letterman and Tina Fey to be my role models. Then I'll go buy a bunch of caviar and diamonds and a golden limousine...

Here's me with my newly puffy face, groggily holding my awesome autograph.
