I have an Instagram account. I usually won't follow people unless I know them personally, or unless their posts are relevant to my interests. I certainly don't make a habit of following celebrities, but I made one exception to this rule: Jorge Garcia.
This is him.
He is an actor who was on Lost. He was my favorite actor on Lost, as a matter of fact. I have a small, plastic figure of him in my house in a place of honor. I feel weird about that. Probably not as weird as I should.
Anyway, I began following him on Instagram a while back, and recently he posted a list for something called a 30 Day Drawing Challenge. The list gives you a subject for each day and you're supposed to draw a picture of that thing and post it to your picture feed. You're also supposed to use the hash tag so other people who are participating in the challenge can look at your stuff. I thought it looked fun, so I am doing the challenge. Not many people are currently participating, so I shouldn't be surprised that he's seen my pictures. But he did comment on one of them! He thought it was funny. I sqeed. I squeed so hard that I pulled a muscle.
Look, the normal, grown-up part of me knows he's just a guy who happens to be an actor, he likes to draw, and he's seen my picture. No big deal.
The other part of me (the part that most of you know) is the one currently writing on my blog that he commented on my picture. It is also the part of me that sqeed.
Don't worry, I didn't try to engage him in any sort of contact. I see people do that a lot on his feed and it embarrasses me. I don't want to be that guy!
