I don’t know if you guys know this about me but Superbad is my favorite movie of all time. I actually screen guys by whether or not they love Superbad. Sometimes I’ll ask on the first date, sometimes the second, sometimes within 5 minutes of meeting them. And if it’s a cute, cool guy I like, I always make the ask then hold my breath, because if he says he hasn’t seen it or, EVEN WORSE, doesn’t LIKE it, I know the relationship will never work. I also like to watch it with dudes to gauge their reactions and see if we laugh at the same stuff. When Superbad came out on DVD in ’07, I think I watched it with 3 different dudes in a 6-week period. Wow, was I a player?
But that’s enough of me giving away my dating/guy screening tricks of the trade.
I heard Jonah Hill was in town filming a movie and just knew I’d run into him eventually. How did I know that? Fate. That’s how. Even though he’s no longer the chubby and curly-haired Seth I love, he’s still the same guy that would make obscene gestures behind a hot girl in Home Ec class, kick a soccer ball into the bleachers, and tap you on the nose and say, “Boop, boop, boop” (I think).You Superbad superfans know what I’m talking about.
Wednesday night Thursday morning at 1 a.m., I get this text from Kate:
So yeah, I had to go.
I walked in and there they were–just hanging out like old buddies. Kate introduced me to Jonah and he said hello, then went back to trying to get with girls. Told you he was still the same Seth.
He came by to chat later and I knew I had to put my I-Never-Get-Starstruck ego aside, act totally uncool and get a picture, at least to send to my brother. Here’s how that went down.
Me: “So…hey. Can I get a picture with you?”
Jonah (gives me an annoyed sigh): “Ugh, then you’re going to put it on Facebook and all that.”
Me: “No, I won’t I swear. I’m just going to send it to my brother. We’re big fans.”
Jonah (softens up a bit): “Okay, that’s cool.”
And we snap this gem.
Then he was really nice and wanted to see the pic and said we looked good, blah, blah, blah. So because of that, I will respect his wishes and not put the photo on Facebook.
I never said I wouldn’t put it on my blog.
