Oh my gosh. This is my new favorite ask. In case people want to know the dumb shit I say to Stephen:
I’m pretty sure this might be the one they’re talking about? But I’ve replied to a lot of things he says over Twitter. So I guess I’ll answer your question, Anon.
Why do I reply with really stupid, crazy shit?
Because it’s amusing. Because it’s funny. Because I don’t care what anyone thinks, much less Stephen Merchant himself.
Merchant is brilliant, funny, charming, and handsome. I adore him. I also know he doesn’t give a rat’s ass what I or any other fan says about him. He doesn’t bat an eyelash to people like me.
I say crazy things for enjoyment and fun. I’m not out there to impress Merchant or get in his pants or whatever. I don’t care. I really don’t.
At least I don’t tell him I love him, pretend he’s my husband, stalk other people’s instagram accounts to get photos of him, etc.
I’m a fan that likes to joke around. That’s it.
I’m glad you went out of your way to find me on tumblr to ask me this, though.
At the very least, I thought that tweet was funny. As in, I let out a brief guffaw when I read it.
I’m guilty of stalking certain Instagram accounts though. It’s mainly because I have a compulsive need to keep my blog updated and well, there isn’t a lot of press about him lately. I guess what I’m trying to say is we all have our reasons for doing silly, crazy things.
