Long story short: inspired by the IT Crowd cross stitch piece by Beth Garrison, I whipped up my own pattern (download it here) and then cross stitched Moss's head onto a cell phone case for Ryan.
Yesterday, I saw a note from Graham Linehan on Twitter
So I clicked the link, which went to his blog and in addition to being good news about where some of us US-based nerds can get their grubby paws on the season one commentary for the IT Crowd, there is a picture of my Moss cross-stitch. Which means, basically Graham Linehan saw my Flickr picture! Rejoice!
After doing a little Happy Dance of Happiness, I re-tweeted his message, adding in my 2 (non-biased) cents:
and THEN he tweeted back to me!
And then today, he sent the same message again, to make sure that everyone saw
and HE said
So, basically, we are BFFs and as soon as I move to England or he moves to California, we're going to start hanging out all the time and probably go on rollercoasters and stuff. Ryan is now convinced that I have "Made It" so please form a line to the left for autographs. My fifteen minutes of fame is nearly up!
