You Know You Watch Too Much TV…

… when you recognize William Mapother in the approximately 38 seconds he is vaguely visible in “Minority Report” and track him down to see that he played Ethan Rom in four episodes of Lost. One minute ago I didn’t even know the guy’s name. Also, as a cousin of Tom Cruise you’d expect he’d get […]

Weekend Deals

It works that way… “Okay, here’s the deal: We’ll tidy up the apartment a little more and then we go out for a walk and then I can hang around all afternoon and I’ll make us dinner in the evening.” We have very different opinions on how a weekend should be spent.

Peek-A-Boo

Just wanted to let you know that I’m very very alive and kicking. Only not on this blog right now. After two weeks away suddenly there are tons of people who actually want to see us and so my weekends just get sucked up and go god-knows-where. I’m not even sure I had one though […]

Random Things on a Random Tuesday

So, there’s this fly in my room and it’s absolutely in love with me. It keeps coming back no matter how hard I try to swoosh it away. So, is swoosh an actual word? And if so, did I use it in the right context? The maniacs are shutting down the warm water and heat […]

More Guilty Pleasures

How bad is it that I really love Avril Lavigne’s ‘Let Go’? It’s so teen, so mainstream, so… old. (I just realized that it was released in 2002, that’s friggin’ three years ago.) It totally fits into the corner of my mind where I can’t help but love Christina Aguilera, Natasha Bedingfield, Pink and – […]
