I'm going to fangirl here for a moment. But only a moment, as it's after midnight and I need to go to bed. Josh Ritter. I love this man more than I probably should. Tomorrow I'll put up a full show review (both for Saturday and tonight) but I just have to flail about this for now. :)


Josh: Hi, how’re you doin?
Me & Mary: Hey, great show,
Josh: Thank you so much.
Me & Mary: We saw you Saturday up in Portland, awesome show both nights.
Josh: Thank you. My guitar was so out of tune up there tonight.
Me & Mary: Well, hey, we didn’t notice so.
Me: I was wondering if you wouldn’t mind writing something in my journal.
Josh: Oh, hey, yeah! What’s your name?
Me: Deborah.
Josh: How do I spell it?
Me: *spells like a mofo*
Josh: We’ve met before, haven’t we?
Me: Yeah, in Portland last October at the Schnitz. I won the tickets.
Josh: Oh yeah, I remember!
Me: I really love that new song, is it A-t-o-m or…?
Josh: A-d-a-m
Me: Ah. Well, I love that one.
Josh: Thank you!
Me: So what’s up with the new album then?
Josh: We’ve got it all recorded and now I’m just trying to find someone to release it. I’m just glad we’re done recording and now we can kinda relax….
Me: Just go play around for a bit...
Josh: Exactly.
Me: Well, I’m very excited about it, whenever it gets released.
Josh: So are you from Portland originally?
Me: No, I’m from Corvallis. Which is nice, you know, right in the middle of Portland and Eugene, so that worked out well.
Josh: And what is it that you do there?
Me: Hopefully I’m going to be working at an independent book and music store called Grass Roots and I do graphic design.
Josh: All right, that’s awesome. Independent bookstores are the best. I worked at one in Providence.
Me: Yeah, and they’re really great people working so hard just to stay afloat in the face of Borders and stuff.
Josh: Oh yeah. *hands back journal, notices all my writing on the cover/spine/back* Wow, that’s awesome.
Me: *laughs* Oh yes, my obsessive writing. Thank you so much for the show, and come back soon!
Josh: *big hugs and cheek kisses* Oh I will. Thank you so much, darlin’.
Me: And have a great tour.
Josh: *grabs & kisses my hand, which, oh my goodness* You have a great night, Deborah!

:) Yeeeaaahhhh, he's one of my favorite people.

Here's a kinda crappy picture of what he wrote in my journal.

Deborah! May all the right words come to you (when you need them). Love, Josh Ritter

O my goodness. I just about fainted. I love what he wrote.

That is so just so *nice*. Which isn't a good word for it at all.

Hee. :D

I'm still floating on that high. It was the hand kiss that did it. I turned into the worlds biggest girl. And it still makes me grin like that goat.

When I describe Josh to people I always use the word "nice." He pretty much embodies "nice." It's what he is. So it's a perfect word, in my opinion. He's such a sweetheart and I want to curl up in his sock drawer and sleep for days.

Personally, I'm still grinning like an idiot. And all he did was smile at me and shake my hand.

Hey, I'm sorry for kinda monopolizing the Josh. I woulda stuck around for your squee if you'd wanted me to. As it was, my brain kinda turned to mush after the whole hand-kissing thing. Next time, though. ;)

I didn't see him shake your hand; did that happen at the beginning? /obsessing

I'll need to make some Josh icons

It's okay (the monopolizing). You had actual things to say to him whereas my brain had already turned to mush. I didn't want to hone in your time. And then after I couldn't think of anything original to say so I was content to wander off. But now that my brain is less much there will be a nice handwritten letter going in his direction. Because he is the most awesome person ever.

And yes, the handshake was at the very beginning. He turned away from his cousin (the time whore) and the first person he saw was me and as I already felt like I'd cut in line I was directing him toward you and guy in the black shirt and he just grabbed my hand for a second. It wasn't so much a shake as a quick squeeze as he was turning. But it was still sweet.

Also,is your user icon (points up) really a pic of you Mary or just someone who looks exactly like the back of you? What's it from?

*is buttinski*

it's sarah watkins from nickel creek

Katie, one day you will see Josh Ritter with us. Or, conversely, we will all take a road trip to Moscow and ask him to sing for us on his front porch.

I need MORE Josh icons now. All the time.

Nnngguhhhhh *melts*

Seriously, I might fangirl him more than I fangirl Paddywhackles. *covers mouth* I was talking with my mother tonight about his made-up college major and his music and his everything and I just want to sit down with him and talk to him for days in a way that I don't think I'd be able to with Jared or Jensen. Basically, I want to thank them for being so very very awesome and amazing (and I want to hug Jared silly), but I want to club Josh over the head and drag him back to live with me in my restaurant in Alaska and sing me to sleep every night.
