EMBARRASSING THINGS I HAVE SAID TO PEOPLE I ADMIRE

  1. "I walked by and saw you and then figured I'd pretend to sit by you and wait for a moment to say hi and clearly I didn't do that because now I'm just walking right up to you."
    To Matt Smith, aka The Eleventh Doctor from Doctor Who aka my favorite doctor and beautiful face haver. He was very nice and said "let's take a selfie" and I said "are you sure???" LIKE AN IDIOT.
  2. "I love everything you do!!!!!!"
    To Chris Hardwick. I ran into him at Hollywood Center Studios while I was wearing a Doctor Who t-shirt. Shoulda been chill and been like "oh, yeah, Nerdist is super cool and I also enjoy Talking Dead and @midnight" but instead I just exclaimed that in his face.
  3. "You're just trying to trick me, I know you're not actually Sharon Needles."
    Sharon Needles was the winner of Rupaul's Drag Race season 4. The person I was talking to WAS Sharon Needles. I said this to her after she pulled me into the single stall bathroom with her and proceeded to pee and talk to me at the same time. I was very drunk.
  4. "I wish you were my godmother."
    At the Trophy Wife wrap party to Michaela Watkins. I proceeded to go into a speech about how much I admire and respect her and loved getting to know her and get her advice. The rest of the chat was very sweet but my opening line had ZERO CHILL.
