This post is dedicated entirely to my two favorite (age appropriate, sorry hugh laurie) guys on network television:

chuck from GG, as seen here holding the gayest little 'brella in all the land.

and this dude from Dirty Sexy Money, which I really hope comes back next year.

I can't decide which one I like better, they both remind me of every dude I've ever fallen for, ever. I'm so glad I started watching television again. I never have to leave the house!

Is it just me, or does Cynthia Nixon's girlfriend look like she could also be her son? See, this is why I have never dated a fellow red-head. I don't want to look related to my boyfriend.

I'm bored, and also very very cold.

erin: like if i went to a bathroom, and that picture was hanging up on the wall, i would feel weird taking my pants down to pee
erin: i'd have to find another toilet
erin: just sayin'
me: WHATS THE POINT OF THAT BIKE. there's no pedals. you have to walk it?
me: or, shimmy it, as the case may be
erin: shimmycycle
me: that thing sticking up near his butt makes me uncomfortable, too
erin: everything about it is wrong
me: i think this whole illustration is out of a marquis de sade instruction manual or something
erin: like why is he flexing his legs like a ballerina
erin: yea like if you turn the page, he's eating poo

A hot second ago I read that Jimmy "Uberdouchery" Fallon is set to take over Conan in 2009. And then I died a little. On the inside.

In other news, every time someone refers to library books and books as "stacks", I think of pancakes organized via dewey decimal system. It would be delicious!

80% cotton, 20% tears of baby jesus

Looking for that perfect summer wardrobe? LOOK NO FURTHER! (this is a link, click on it.) Polygamous sect-chic is so hot right now.

Ok. This Claritin-D is making me feel AWFUL, appetite-less and motivated to do little more than stare straight ahead. This could also be due to the fact that I was up half the night completely unable to breathe. Great. GREAT CLARITIN. I spent $15 on 20 pills that make me feel even worse than before, AND I got to register my name into some national CVS meth watch 2008. Wouldn't you have to buy, like, 800 packs before that even became an issue? Ugh. Today. You're really trying my patience, today.

Here's something I found in my archives, I think my friend Jal is responsible for this but his blog is AWOL, so I guess we'll never really know:

"I'm listening to a compilation of Connecticut Hip-Hop from the late 70's and early 80's right now. Whatever happened to 'The Positive Choice Band'.

And really, is there anything funnier than hearing someone doing a shoutout to all the towns in Connecticut?

Hartford ... We're DOWN!!!
SpringField ... We're DOWN!!!
New Haven ... Oh Yeah!
Norwalk ... We're DOWN!!!
Brisbort ... We're DOWN!!!
Waterberry ... We're DOWN!!!
MiddleTown ... We're DOWN!!!
Stamford ... We're DOWN!!!
Ensonya? ... We're DOWN!!!
Berrydun ... We're DOWN!!!"

Can we just talk about season four of The O.C.? Am I really supposed to care about Ryan and Taylor? Or Julie's stupid prostitution ring? I do like Pancakes The Rabbit, though.

Ok, I'm off to the gym! Remember when I used to be smart! Yeah, me neither. Thanks, Las Vegas.

There's a whole new "Scene Kids"! Fresh for today! In case you've forgotten, "Scene Kids" is my young-adult book series aimed at the Urban Outfitters cooler-than-thou set. And also, it's only covers. Because who has time for reading.

Here's the rest of the series, because maybe you are new:

I've had stress-nightmares for five nights in a row. (Stress-mares?) I wasn't even aware that I was under as much stress as my dreams are telling me that I am. What is that? But! I'm not going to tell you about my dreams, as those are the worst kind of posts. What I am going to do is regale you with some pictures from LA, not too many because my batteries died halfway through the process. Here's Brett! From Flight of the Conchords!

(it's because LA is magical, his face shows you that LA is magical)


"A Cautionary Tale"

I just saw Neil Diamond, hanging out outside the studio. He's rehearsing next door or something I think.

Last night I was at the same party as Bret from Flight of the Conchords, which is infinitely more exciting and I will post pictures of later.

My CD keeps singing "Coming to America" with these exaggerated arm motions. This shoot is tedious.

we're having a party, a nazi party

I just watched "Cabaret" for the first time (I know, right), and I kind of want Sally Bowles' entire wardrobe. And also, I know what my next Halloween costume is going to be, provided I can lose 15* pounds by that time because those shorts are kind of tiny.

*ok, 20

I don't feel comfortable around this plant whatsoever.

One of my favorite SNL sketches in a long ass time, "Indoor Gardening Tips From A Man Who's Very Scared of Plants", starring Christopher Walken. The quality's shit, because for some reason NBC hasn't put it up on their website. Thanks, dude who filmed it from his television!

I think Terence Malick's "Days of Heaven" should have been shot in 3D. But I think that about almost every movie. And also, about the David Bowie / Mick Jagger collaborative effort that was the music video accompanying their cover of "Dancing in the Street".

Bowie haphazardly pointing at the wall! Mick Jagger drinking a soda as though he has no idea he is shooting a video! High fancy kicks! I can't decide which part is my favorite!
