Alton Brown is just so unbelievably attractive to me, but everyone thinks it’s weird. I’m here to prove a point.

I need you Good Eats nerds more than ever. If any of you share my sentiment, like, reblog, clap your hands, do an interpretive dance, give me some sort of sign. I want to prove to everyone that AB has a solid bunch of “groupies” (for lack of a better term) behind him. AND THERE’S NO SHAME IN THAT.

Can everyone please take the time to remember that Alton Brown wished me a happy birthday and immortalized it in my book along with his autograph!?
Quick story: I was going to university in San Francisco, and about a month before my 20th birthday I realized he was going to be in San Diego on my exact b-day. I am originally from LA, two hours north. So I bought a plane ticket to LA to arrive the night before. I woke up the next morning and drove with my friend two hours to wait in line to meet my hero. While in line, a Costco employee gave all the fans a post-in on which to write the correct spelling of their names. "I almost want to write that it’s my birthday," I said in cheeky fashion."Do it!" my friend said.So I did.When I met AB, he said: “It’s your birthday!?” to which I shyly responded “Yes.”"Happy birthday!" he smiled.He was the coolest, sweetest, most charming individual I ever had the pleasure of meeting. The end.
