New favorite commercial: 2 guys leave a bar and go into a pizza place and order for delivery. The pizza guy's like, "Delivery?" And they say, "Yes. Delivery." The next scene they're in the car with the delivery guy. Then they walk into the house and shut the door on the pizza guy who, thoroughly confused, knocks on the door, and the one guy opens up the door and says, "Awesome-the pizza guy's here!" And then you find out it's for Captain Morgan rum talking about not drinking and driving. So awesome.

For some reason I watched Jay Leno last night. I really have no idea why. Maybe I was punishing myself for something. Jessica Simpson was on, and I just have one thing to say: she is a complete and utter moron but her boobs are fantastic. I mean seriously they are crazy ridiculous. Afterwards I watched Conan, and Keifer Sutherland was on. Could he be any more awesome? Plus he told Conan, "I didn't get a chance to see you after the Emmy's, but I thought you did an absolutely fantastic job." and was really praising my boyfriend-I mean Conan-which means he has a good sense of humor. Also he was talking about this documentary of him managing a band and touring with them and was making fun of himself for always being drunk on video. So the answer's no, in case you are wondering, Keifer could not be more awesome. Even if he was made entirely of Salt & Vinegar Pringles, he wouldn't be more awesome than he is right now. And that's really saying something.

What does a girl have to do to download JoJo's new song (Too Little, Too Late)? Release it already, iTunes! You have the video just give me the song!! It's so damn catchy. Just give it to me. I need it.

We saw "Little Miss Sunshine" on Tuesday, and it was awesome. I loved it so much. You know how there are some scenes in some movies that just stay with you because they are so sweet and endearing? This film had several of those scenes for me. Loved it. Also I will just state for the record that I have a completely inappropriate crush on Steve Carrell. Especially with a beard. Mmmm...

Another movie I watched recently was "Shopgirl". I felt about this movie the way I felt about the book which was: Meh. It really didn't thrill me in either format. But if I had to choose I would pick the book over the movie if for no other reason than in the book I don't have to see Steve Martin having sex. Honestly, Hollywood!! I know he wrote the book, but for the love of God I saw a lot of things that really should've caused permanent blindness. Don't get me wrong-I love Steve Martin. But only when he's playing, like, a harried dad losing control of his family and surroundings in a humorous manner. Not when he says stuff like, "Basically I just want to have sex with her while I'm in town."

Scariest quote spoken to me yesterday by a coworker who I don't work with that often and doesn't know me that well: "Hey-I think I saw you at the Krusty party a few weeks ago." Um...yikes. I wanted to ask him what I was doing at the moment he saw me, but I was too terrified of the answer. Instead I just laughed and said, "I hope you didn't see me dancing [insert fake/nervous laughter]. We really loved that band. That party was fun." And I left it at that. Here's hoping he never feels the need to elaborate on the details surrounding the sighting.

Love your show.

Oh my gosh, I HATED the Shopgirl movie. The book was ok. I was impressed that Steve Martin could write and I loved the part where the rich guy tries to break up with her and she walks away with a completely different take on the conversation but the movie was torture. I hated the first couple dates with the guy from the laundromat because it reminded me way too much of my own dating life. Icky and just absolutely horrible. We turned it off pretty quickly.

Spaceface, I think you should use 'totally' at least once in every sentence. Also-seriously that commercial is awesome.

h.justin, um hello new best friend. Seriously I love you. I spent so much time trying to get the song last night. I can't get to myspace from work, but I will be downloading this song when I get home. The first time I listen to it, it will be in your honor.

Violet, yeah-icky. That is exactly the right word to describe that movie. Way icky.

Yeah, Shopgirl. I kind of kept waiting for something to *happen*. But I guess that's why the book was better, you can more easily believe that kind of meandering plot line when it's in a book, but on the screen you just expect more.

You know, up here in Canada, when there is another election we're voting to have Keifer be our new King. Jealous?

Canadians love trying to make people jealous.

Hi Sarah,
I'm the Bolgger from Truckee, CA. I am good friends with ThatGirl, where I found your blog. Just wanted to let you know that I've never been convicted of a felony and I'm not stalking you. Unless you are into that. Just think you are f&^$*#@g hilarious.

2 cents on Shopgirl: I listened (CD) to the book and and liked it. Steve Martin, as the narrator, was able to provide good color and depth to the characters and sucessfully tempered the ickyness. Haven't seen the movie yet.
