Via [livejournal.com profile] cut_paste_twist, it's me with my incredibly formal autograph from Carl on Thursday night!

I love how he signs it "yours truly." I think all his autographs should come in this form from now on:

Dear (fan name),

Here is your autograph. I hope you will find it to your satisfaction. Thank you for your kind attention.

Very sincerely yours,
Mr. Carl Ashley Raphael Barât

It was! He stopped in the middle of signing it to make sure he was spelling my name correctly.

Is the big X where you're supposed to sign?

Hee. Yeah, sign here for delivery of autograph. Actually, it's kisses. He signed his old forum posts that way as well.

Bwahahahahaha - at you! *snorfle* Yes, that would make a wonderful standard autograph for Mr. Barat.
Christ, I thought MY parents were bad at the middle names

Hee. Have you ever read his Uncyclopedia entry? Here's some of it:

Carl Ashley Raphael Leonardo Michelangelo "Yeah, My Mum Was Likely On Some Crazy Shite When I Was Born" Donatello Barât is best known as a skinny jeans model, professional mumbler, and pioneer in the practice of adding needless diacritical marks to one's surname. He was also involved in a world domination conspiracy disguised as a band called The Libertines. The vapid scenester fashion magazine NME made a big deal about Barât and The Libertines, but experts suspect that this was merely because he was photographed standing next to Pete Doherty a few times, which automatically makes things of interest to the NME. Later he was in another band that no one cared about so much, probably because Doherty was no longer there to attract paparazzi. He is affectionately known to Libertines fans as "the other one", "one of the blokes who isn't Pete", "the one with the hair", and "hey, those are my pants, you metrosexual fucker". He is known to people outside of England as "that guy who used to hang out with that crackhead who's screwing that anorexic cokewhore."

Barât's highly irresponsible parents clearly didn't give a shit about their son's well-being from the git-go. As anyone with a shred of common sense would have anticipated, his ridiculous name led to merciless teasing and numerous playground assaults at the hands of his classmates, resulting in a rather miserable childhood. As Barât grew older he found several very un-cliché outlets for his childhood angst, such as experimenting with drugs, playing an instrument badly, and listening to crappy music in a dark bedroom. Little else is known of Barât's early years, except for the fact that he has 19 brothers and sisters, all inflicted with ludicrously long, embarrassing names and randomly placed circumflexes.

Eventually he escaped his parents' baby factory and whored his way to London, where he would meet Pete Doherty.

Are you kidding? The Libs Uncyclopedia entries are bookmarked on both of my computers for when I need to choose between a good tear-inducing laugh and a dramatic suicide. Seriously.

Poor Carl - I feel your pain, darling, I really do.

My sister got stuck with "Gerard" for pity's sake! My SISTER!!!

Oh, dear. Please give your sister my sympathies.

And my mother wasn't even smoking the hippy lettuce. No excuse - just NO excuse.

I really need to get one of those satisfactory autographs from young Carl - I'm sure you'll know first if they decide to do a US tour.

Oh, yes. The news will be posted here in 9000 point font if they decide to do a U.S. tour. With sparkly letters.

Autograph aside, that is a really adorable picture of you!

Did he colour in his name and add little swirls to it like he did with Jen's? hahaha. I love how he made the x big enough to cover the rest of the page, like he didn't want any of it to go to waste!

He is too much. That is just charming.

He is so charming! I'll post about it later, but basically what happened is that I gave him this book about WWI that I'd bought in Toronto, and he seemed very touched by that and thanked me and gave me a kiss, and then I asked him for the autograph and he asked for my name and then stopped in the middle to make sure he was spelling it correctly, and then he gave me a hug and kissed me again. Hence the "Carl glow" on my face when this picture was taken immediately afterwards.

I'm surprised you didn't explode - are we going to get a blow-by-blow? Er, I mean a written transcription of all events in minute detail?

Hee, yeah, definitely. I'm still only on the Cornwall part of my trip, though! I'm trying to post my pics from each day.
