Some announcements

1) Dear Nicorette, fuck you.

2) Okay seriously, people, we need to talk. If you are not watching "Friday Night Lights", why aren't you watching "Friday Night Lights"? I honestly cannot say enough about how unbelievably amazingly breathtaking the past few episodes have been. I am obsessed with all the characters-obviously-but my heart belongs to Matt Saracen. How adorable is this kid*?

Even more adorable when you watch the show. There was a Matt-centric episode on a few weeks ago and he OWNED it. I honestly am still thinking about. Watch this show, people. Watch. This. Show. You will not be sorry, I promise you. Also I am posting this picture because I found it in my search, and it is so gd sweet. FNL fans will appreciate it:

3) A week ago we saw Zane Lamprey live. If you aren't familiar with him, it's time to bone up on your Zane trivia. He's the host of "Three Sheets" which is basically a show about alcohol. He travels to different countries and teaches you about alcohol, where it comes from, cultural customs as it pertains to drinking and then he gets completely shitfaced with the locals. It is absolutely glorious. He is hilarious, and so we jumped at the chance to see him live. It was not a disappointment. His live show is a lot like his TV show, but more like a stand up routine. Not only was it hilarious, but it just reminded me how much I like drinking. I realize it's not healthy, and I realize I am judged for it, but I LOVE DRINKING.

After the show, we waited in line to take a picture with Zane and his buddies (Seriously he tours the US with his best friends and just drinks. How do I get this job?). The people in line in front of us handed me their camera and asked me to take a picture of them with Zane-a task at which I failed utterly and completely. In all honesty, this chick's camera sucked, and when I pressed the button nothing happened for like 20 seconds. Unfortunately, that was about 15 seconds longer than they posed. The picture was absolutely awful. Three of the four of them laughed. One man did not. He was super angry. To that man (and his friends) I say: I am SO sorry. At the risk of sounding insincere, I swear I tried, but you guys posed for like 3 seconds and that camera sucks. Still, I claim full responsibility and I am sorry. Like really, really sorry. Please forgive me.

4) This past Saturday we met Kenny Loggins. And by met I mean "saw in concert" (I'm counting it). Listen I'll punch everyone who doesn't think Kenny Loggins is awesome because he is all kinds of awesome. The show was perfect. Kenny was perfect. We were the youngest people at the concert. I love being the youngest people at places. I love Kenny Loggins 4-eva.

5) I am officially having a nephew! Friday we found out my sister is having a boy. Apparently he decided to hang out with his wang out during the ultrasound. Just like his father-who did the same thing during the ultrasound. Just kidding. I think. I wasn't there so I can only hope I'm right about that. More important than anything, the baby is healthy and doing well. Obviously I would've been thrilled no matter the gender, but knowing what it is makes this all more real. And so much harder to wait for him to get here. I cannot wait to watch "The Goonies" with him. After finding out it was a boy, I bought my first present for him:

Tuxedo bib. Awesome. I laughed so hard I almost peed when I saw this. It took me all of 3 seconds to decide to buy it. Diane said it was a very "Sarah" gift to buy. Drew said it's for formal dining. Givememynephewimmediately.

*In real life he is not a kid so I am not a gross perv. In fact, in real life Zach Gilford is relatively close to my age, it is okay for me to say I want to do dirty things to him. Because, oh Lordy, I surely do. Also, yes please:

I bet the gentlemen really enjoy this post. It's definitely geared toward them. Should we talk about mani/pedis and periods?

SEriously, as soon as I saw that commercial I thought of you and the horror you must have experienced seeing it.

the PR guy for zane called me and wanted to comp me tickets, but all his east coast shows are over! I was pissed. I'm glad you got to go and I'm jealous.
