Blog called on account of rain. Mostly because it’s Texas and when it rains here the whole State shuts down. But I’m not entirely MIA because I’m doing a giveaway today. See the eyeball necklace on my left sidebar? That’s my friend, Dr. Brassy and she makes awesomeness with her own little hands and she’s giving away a few gift certificates here today so you can have your own little piece of fantasticness.
Want one? Just leave a comment and a few of you will be randomly chosen.
Also, I realize that I’ve given you nothing pertinent to comment on so here’s a random topic: They say you should never meet your heroes because they’ll never compete with what you imagine, but that’s not true because I met Neil Gaiman once and we ended up wearing sock monkey hats and telling stories of beauty pageants. I guess the moral here is that you should always meet Neil Gaiman, and carry your own monkey hat just in case he forgets his. (Which is unlikely because the man is magic and I think he carries a suitcase of bad-assery with him everywhere.)
So here’s your question…which of your heroes would you still like to meet? Or, which have you already met?
UPDATED: My God, I love you people. You seriously pick all of the best people and I think we should be friends forever. However, only two people can win so using (Random Number Generator) here are the winners:

“I ran into Joe Piscopo and his ex-wife at a grocery store years ago. Never having seen a celebrity before I followed (OK … stalked) them from the frozen food aisle to the bakery then check-out. A few weeks later I was in a bowling alley and Joe (I figured we were on a first-name basis since we shopped together) was playing pool. I made a beeline for him and shouted “Hey JOE … It’s ME … CHRISTY … Remember? From the grocery store?” To this day I can’t understand why he downed his beer and went out the back door.”
Also, for being such amazing sports I’m going to pick a few of you to send signed copies of my book, so check your email.
We now return to regular programming.
