Something not TV-Related

I stole this idea from my lovely friend, Kat. I try very hard to be just like her in every way, so when I saw her do this I decided I had to do it, too.

Ask me to take a picture of any aspect of my life that you’re interested in or curious about – it can be anything from the house I live in to my favorite book. Leave your choice here as a comment, and I will post the pictures as a later entry. Feel free to make your requests as mundane or creative as you like!

And because I’m a big copykat (get it? kat? oohhhh….I crack myself up), I’m going to add the same condition that she did using her exact words: no nakiepicks. We don’t want to further encourage the wayward googlers, do we?

In other TV news …

I know the teams on The Apprentice always pick really stupid names for themselves, and I can’t tell you how glad I am that this season we weren’t forced to watch the whole team-naming process. But I’m a little curious to know where in the world Team “Arrow” came up with their name. I think that’s got to be one of the worst team names in Apprentice history.

Ever since the team names were revealed, there hasn’t been a single episode that Tim and I have made it through without yelling, “Arrowed!

Studio 60, please don’t be like that

You know what I’m talking about, Studio 60. Don’t even try to pretend that you don’t. You’re supposed to be a smart show. You’re not supposed to succumb to the hackneyed plot lines that every other show in the history of television has done. Please stop immediately.

You want examples? Okay, how about this: When Danny and Jordan went up to the roof I thought to myself, “Hey! They should prop the door open so they don’t get stuck up there!” But then I quickly corrected myself — “No, nevermind. This show is above that kind of banality.” And then when they did, in fact, get locked on the roof, Tim was the first to say out loud what we were both thinking — “I thought this show was better than that.”

And what in the hell was up with the lack of cell phone service on the roof? Studio 60, I feel like I need to remind you that you’re a smart show. What I love so much about you is that you don’t expect your viewers to be dumb. At least, before this week’s show you didn’t. But, come on. Do you really expect me to believe that there is no cell reception in the middle of L.A., on the roof of a building inside of which people use their cell phones all the time? Honestly, I’m a little insulted that you think I’m so stupid.

Not enough for you? Here’s another example: Tom had to break his date with Lucy to go to the dinner thing with Kim. When the dinner scene began I told Tim, “Gee, I sure hope Lucy doesn’t show up there, see Tom and Kim together, and get the wrong idea. A few minutes ago I would have thought this show was better than that, but now … who knows?” And — you guessed it! — that’s exactly what happened. In the words of Chandler, could you be any more obvious?

I know I didn’t want you to get cancelled, Studio 60, but if this is how you’re going to be, I’m not sure I want you to stick around. Either shape up or get the hell off my tv.

Thank goodness I have funny friends who save me from having to write actual original blog posts

Like Gary, for example. He is funny. See for yourself (AIM names have been changed to protect the hilarious):

HalfAGenius: (because together, Gary and I are a genius) anything exciting going on this week?
TnA: (get it? Like Tim ‘n Audrey! What else would that possibly stand for?) not too much. Tim has to go to a school board meeting tomorrow night, and I’ll probably tag along. Dinner with the in-laws on Thursday, FC this weekend…
HalfAGenius: school board meeting? how teach-like of him. what you doing in ftc?
TnA: I know! I’m helping out with a job’s meeting on saturday
HalfAGenius: that’s good of you
TnA: yeah. it’s also a good excuse to go see my parents.
HalfAGenius: look how you give back to the community. you two should be awarded with some sort of civic award
TnA: right. whatever.
HalfAGenius: you’re doing more than me
HalfAGenius: or most people i know
HalfAGenius: i mean, i date ugly people sometimes
TnA: LOL (Yes, I lol’d. What of it?)
HalfAGenius: that’s pretty civic
HalfAGenius: but you know, i don’t like go to meeting or whatever
TnA: well I rarely do. like 3 times a year, maybe
HalfAGenius: oh, i go on more than three ugly dates a year
HalfAGenius: way more
TnA: see? you totally deserve an award more than me
HalfAGenius: i even made out with an ugly once
HalfAGenius: granted he put me and my friend on his tab at a bar for the whole night
TnA: forget an award. you deserve a great big trophy!
HalfAGenius: but it was still pretty generous
HalfAGenius: of me
TnA: a trophy made of booze
HalfAGenius: or like the nobel dating prize
TnA: exactly

Too funny
