"Lovefool" by the Cardigans was my very first Thumbs Down on Pandora. Perhaps the fact that it was the first time I clicked Thumbs Down is also the explanation as to how "Lovefool" by the Cardigans ended up playing to begin with.
I found a notebook that I haven’t looked at since May, I think. I have a list of sketches that I wanted to write and never did and I didn’t write any sort of description of them! Now I don’t know what they are!
“The Wost Case Scenerio”
Movie Theatre Sketch
What on Earth?!
At least I remember the jist of “Obama Fixes Your Life” and “JustHookers.com”
I do the same thing all the time with notecards. If someone can tell me what “Germ Sponge” meant, I’d appreciate it.
Since when were the titles of “prolific filmmaker” and “child rapist” mutually exclusive?
It’s not for Hollywood to decide when Roman Polanski has done enough to atone for his crime. It’s not for you or me to decide. It’s for the law to decide. The law that he evaded thirty years ago when he fled the country after pleading guilty to raping a child.
And maybe the law got it wrong. And maybe there was some unsavory business with the judge. But guess what. You don’t get to use your own discretion and flee. That, I’m afraid, is not a constitutional right.
Today is my first complete day off since before I went to NY over Labor Day weekend. Not working at my second job. Not rehearsing. Not nothing. I do have to run 5 miles today since marathon training has officially started again, but I’m waiting until dark. It’s too hot now and I’m too lazy to go running in the morning before it gets too hot.
But it was on Netflix Watch It Now. I finally got the DVD for the 3rd season and I must say I’m actually disappointed. It was much better before they felt the need to fill each episode with a guest star such as Oprah, Jennifer Aniston and Steve martin.
I agree. Last season was pretty ridiculous with the guest stars. Unfortunately, NBC thinks huge stars = big ratings. Actually, all the networks seem to think this, but NBC is pareticularly bad.
I agree to an extent. But I’d prefer less-than-amazing 30 Rock with tons of guest stars than no 30 Rock at all. Plus they did calm down on the guest appearances as the season progressed.
I think NBC realized that if they have enough self-referential in-jokes that both mock product placement and act as actual product placement, they can get enough advertising dollars that they don’t need to keep bringing in name actors (Minus the Kidney Now episode which I fall asleep during every time I watch it).
Also, I loved the Oprah cameo. I thought it was done really well. In fact, I think the guest characters are always written and performed extremely well…they’re just so unnecessary and forced that it takes you out of it.
How about a little bit of positivity? I am now a subscriber to “It Made My Day.” In this world of FML and FAIL blogs, it’s a nice treat to read about the little things that DO go right.
"Today I left the ice cream out of the fridge by mistake, and it melted. Instead of putting it back in the freezer so that it got that nasty re-frozen texture, I spent the afternoon drinking it straight from the box. IMMD."
I think the name of a person’s wireless network can say a lot about them. For instance, I know that I live in the same building with someone who named their router “KushBlazer” and am in no hurry to discover and make friends with that person.
By the same token, however, I wonder what people think of me, since my wireless network is called “BabyGutsFartTown.”
My neighbor is a mystery. Her balcony is covered with dried out plants and faded American flag paraphernalia, and her car has a mannequin head in the front seat. I’ve never seen her, but of the few things of hers that I have seen, I feel like I know exactly what she is.
I want to wait until she goes out one day then break into her apartment to snoop and see if she is really a witch. Before I find anything conclusive, though, my dopey best friend who was too scared to come in with me and decided to keep lookout instead will hear footsteps and start shrieking “She’s coming! She’s coming! Get out of there!” At this point I will have found a strange box or chest or something which will no doubt contain evidence proving that she is truly evil. But it will be locked. As I rush to try to break it open, the witch neighbor is getting closer and closer. She’s almost to the top of the steps. My best friend runs away scared, while I continue to try to open the box. Too late! There’s no escape now. I look in terror as the doorknob begins to turn. My neighbor enters her apartment but I am nowhere to be found. She’s suspicious, though. She looks around but sees nothing. She looks at the box. Nothing strange there. But she still has a feeling something is amizz. Then she spots her closet door. “Gotcha!” her eyes will say. She swings the door open and….nobody is in the closet. She scans from top to bottom not knowing that I am in an oversized jacket hanging on the coat hook of the door…just behind her. She closes the closet and goes into the kitchen to unload her grocery bags as I sneak out the front door. But not before grabbing the mysterious box to take with me.
Tomorrow is a mandatory off-site staff retreat. We have been told to bring sunglasses, sunscreen, and dress for walking, jumping and climbing. I am hoping for obstacles and missions of the Real World/Road Rules Challenge variety.
I need to stop reblogging and have some individual thoughts for once!
I moved last weekend! Our new apartment is a mile from my work. So I will get a bike. Anyone have a bike they don’t want? I prefer a street bike (is that a thing?) so I can use it when I start training for a triathlon one day. Also no girl bikes. Also the new place has central air and no rats. So that’s cool. Only problem so far is on moving day when one of my roommates ditched us at noon to watch Notre Dame play, then called from watching the game to say that I hadn’t done enough that morning. Unreal.
The show last night went fantastically well. I couldn’t be happier with the turnout. It’s the first time in a while I was in a scripted show and I forgot how much easier that shit is when all you have to do is remember lines and blocking.
I think I’m going to Idaho for Thanksgiving, maybe? I really need to put my snowboard to use again. I miss it.
“I deeply appreciate the people of Michigan. I love their grit; I love the way they face life; I love the family values they have; And you Tigers fans are the greatest fans of all. No question about that.”—Ernie Harwell is Baseball. (via jessicaboryn) (via fuckyeahmichigan)
“Ummm when taylor swift got up to get her award and some beyonce fan/publicist came on stage to talk shit and rep beyonce… NOT COOL”—Stephanie Pratt’s twitter. So…she doesn’t know who Kanye West is. That’s great.
In January, I will be going back to college. I’ve decided to study film making (directing, specifically) and I’m really excited about it. In order to do that, I need some jobs where I work at home or on nights and weekends. One of the jobs I will be doing is working for Just For Fun, a company that sells… wait for it… SEX TOYS.
Hilarious? Absolutely. But a friend of mine is doing it and makes good money so I think I can, too.
Here’s where I need your help…
+ I’m hosting my first party on Friday, October 2nd at 7:00pm at my apartment and I need people to come so I can practice my sales pitch. I will make sangria and yummy food. You don’t have to buy anything (although I won’t discourage you from doing so!), you just need to show up and be supportive. If you would like to attend, send me an email.
+ If you can’t come to my party, but you want to have a party in your own home, with your own friends, let me know ASAP. As a hostess, you will receive huge discounts on select products and possibly a free gift. It’ll be a great excuse to get your friends together!
+ If any of your friends are having a bachelorette party, divorce party, Girls Night In, whatever, and you send them my way, I would be very grateful.
+ Forward this email on to anyone who you think might be interested.
I’ve included my guy friends on this email because chances are (I HOPE!) they know a woman who might be interested — if so, please forward this email to her.
I appreciate you all reading this email and helping me out if you can. :)
Looking up sex offender maps of places I’ve lived before because…well why not? I love the site has advertisements. So..like…next to John So-and-so, child rapist serving 15 to life, is “CARTOON YOURSELF!”
