That'll teach me to meddle...  
So irene_adler mentions that Chris Onstad (the author/artist of Achewood) is signing autographs in a location near her, and is nonetheless waffling about heading over there and meeting him.

So I tell her, "You have to go, you're being just like Roast Beef right now."  And she goes.  A few minutes later, I get a text message something like "ASDFOMG HE'S SO NICE!"

Several days later, I get this in the mail:

MASSIVE MAJOR SQUEE!  Dude!  A Great Outdoor Fight poster!  Signed to me!  BY THE ONSTAD HISSELF!!

It totally made my day.  :)

*BIG HUGS* to irene_adler.  Hopefully I won't take this as future encouragement to meddle.  ;)

Oh man. :) Completely fortified with awesome, she is and always is.

But I gotta say, the "You're being like Roast Beef comment?" So priceless. I need someone to tell me that sometimes.

Hell. I need a cross-stitched sampler that says that, and I need to hang it on my living room wall.

I want one too and I don't generally follow Achewood!

...I think we know what I'm going to read until I fall asleep tonight....

I have re-read Achewood twice now. The only other webcomics that beat that are Queen of Wands and Grayling, and OMG I'm obviously such the emo girl...

But the GOF was just the best thing evar!

Hee, I think we all need a "You're being RB" now and then. In her post she linked to the Roast Beef decision-making chart, and the alt text for that one actually says, "Do you want one of these with your name instead of his? Let me know." IT'S LIKE HE KNOWS US.

I didn't even remember it saying that the first time I saw that chart.

I keep wanting to print out the underbeneathlinked strip and pin it up in my office. I have settled for pinning up the Achewood sticker that Chris gave away -- it's purely and simply Keith Moon's head in a jar.

You are very welcome! Chris and his lovely assistant (his wife?) were selling prints for cash, and when I saw that I knew what I had to do . . .

He really seemed honestly happy to see people there. He drew someone a Nice Pete sketch just for the asking. He asked me if I'd gone far, and made sure I took a flyer for the Freezepop/Achewood "Love Night" that was happening later. (I wanted to go but it was just too far off!)
