Guess what I got today Tumblr friends? That’s right. Mr. VIGGO MORTENSEN’S autograph. He came back in today for lunch and ordered a shot a of tequila. He asked for soda water and some chips and salsa. I told him he can’t leave without trying our queso which I gave him for free. He ate the whole damn thing! Anywho, I asked him for his autograph for his shot of tequila. He said “No. Charge me, and what is your name?” I gave him my name and he said “how much do I owe you?” To which I responded “I’ll buy it”. He then said “No, please charge me”. I said “I promise I won’t bother you the rest of the week”. He chuckled and said “ohh, it’s okay”. I went to the computer, rang in a soda water at $2.09 and gave him the ticket. He looked over at me and said “Oh. Thank you”. And I said “No, really, thank you. Have a good one.” And that was my work day. :)
Yup. He came into my bar. I served him a fancy margarita. He then ordered another one with a similar tequila. Then after we closed, came back for 2 more shots of good tequila. ^_^ I’m a master of margaritas. I know they were damn good. Freshly squeezed goodness. Time to to sleep, dream of The Lord of the Rings and see him tomorrow again. #happy panda.
In this clip from his feature chat in Studio Q, Viggo Mortensen explains that what’s at the core of his motivations to create is the constant awareness of his death and his attempts to stave that off.
