Sometimes I hate living in SE Iowa

I want to see this movie so badly, it's actually physically painful. Quite a few of the actors from "24 Hour Party People," one of my favorite movies ever? It looks so funny!

And will it be showing here? Hells, no! We didn't even get "Pride and Prejudice!" Had to go to Chicago to see that one!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but when someone shoots you, albeit by accident, I was not aware that protocol dictated you apologize for any inconvenience you may have caused said shooter.

You know, for plugging you full of bird shot, and inadvertently causing you to have a heart attack. I must have missed that in Emily Post.

I'm assuming that Don Henley and Stevie Nicks are due for a comeback, then

Link on the main MSNBC site said, "Leather and lace are super for spring."

Snark aside, at least they're showing wearable by non-stick-insects fashion. None of this tulip skirt, tapered trouser, high waist nonsense. Or gauchos, Sweet Baby Jesus, gauchos.


I can't really add anything more to this.

Screamed like a little girl

Partially as a result of article content, and because the page quit loading halfway through, so I wasn't able to see which "Manchester legend" joined my boy, Ian, on stage.

Oh My God, I Can't Believe It

James Blunt is the winner for British Male Solo Artist? Over Ian Freaking Brown? (who, granted, can barely carry a tune in a bucket, but deserves to win any award he is nominated for in the future for having been in the Roses).Over Robbie? Jeez, over Will Young? ARE YOU JOKING ME? Wow, I guess the Grammy voters aren't the only idiots.....

Weller looked sharp, as per usual. And he did "Town Called Malice." Sigh.

Jake and Lloyd

It's not just me,that has obsessed over Jake Ryan and Lloyd Dobler, then. Who's better? Lloyd, though Jake has a better car. And is friends with Farmer Ted. But, the argument can be made that Lloyd runs around with The Piven. This is difficult!

If I was actually being honest about John Cusack characters that I would date, I'd have to say Rob "High Fidelity" Gordon or Martin "Grosse Pointe" Blank. Yes, I realize that Martin is a hitman. But he listens to The Jam!

This is more important to me, than the obvious-ethical-quandary-of-dating-an -assassin-type problems that I would experience. Not to mention the difficulties of dating a fictional character. Welcome to my morally (and reality) ambivalent world.

Very funny

This made me laugh very, very hard. Mostly because, back in the day, in my hometown's youth group, we were encouraged to sign a pledge to not indulge in any, ahem, out-of-wedlock-type behaviors teenagers are wont to indulge in.

After my best friend and I watched the town tramp (who made Regina in 'Mean Girls' look like Laura Ingalls Wilder) and her associates walk up to the front of the church and turn in their respective pledges, we decided that, hell, we were 16. Who knew what was going to happen? (Despite our being extremely 'good' girls at that point. Well, in body, though not in mind, for sure. Again, we were 16).

I, for one, was not willing to risk eternal damnation, because I wanted to suck up, figuratively, of course, to a bunch of self-righteous hypocrites. Haven't regretted this at all, even to this day.

Footnote- The aforementioned town tramp? Wound up knocked up 2 years later. Couldn't narrow it down who the father was.

As much as I love my bad boys, there's something so, integrity-ey about Mr. Fitzgerald. Go on, Pat, get down with your decent human being self.
