So I was watching Friends today and it was the episode where Phoebe has the triplets - and the doctor who is going to deliver them is a fanatic for Fonzie from Happy Days - and he talked about Fonzie and referred to things from the “Fonzie perspective” and so on - and all these years I’ve laughed at that and thought “poor Phoebe” and today I realized…he is me but with Sebastian Stan. Like, I have to consciously decide that I am not going to bring him or his work up in every conversation I have with people. I have to bite my tongue and suck in a breath to keep from saying, “Oh, so you want to travel to Europe? You know, Sebastian Stan was born in Romania.” or “That (name present day scummy person here) sure is a disgusting creep. Speaking of disgusting creeps, you remember Jeff Gillooly? Tonya Harding’s ex who…yeah, Sebastian Stan is playing him in a movie called I, Tonya.”
I can literally come up with ways to turn the conversation to Sebastian w/o much effort and it takes all my willpower to keep from doing that - just to avoid the O.O stares. lol
There’s one part in that Friends episode where the doctor is writing something on the chart and he just giggles and shakes his head and says, “Oh, Fonzie.” and I’ve done that with Sebastian! I’ll be just out somewhere, minding my own damn business, and a flash of Seb singing in his car or making goofy faces at Don’s camera will pop in my head and I’ll…yep, you guessed it - giggle, shake my head, and mutter, “Oh, Sebby.”
And even now, I don’t know why I’ve bothered to type all this out except to say that if you do this, too, you’re not alone. I am addicted to this man and there is no cure (not that I want one).
So here’s some gifs of him just because…
