Today's TFLN

Perhaps it is insensitive, but I think it is a fair statement, except excuse me for having doubts about MJ's placement...

(325): I bet farrah fawcett is having words with michael jackson in heaven for stealing her thunder

And it is an Abilene area code!

TFLN Delivery

So, one of my guilty pleasures is reading "texts from last night" online. Often hilarious, often immeasurably offensive, so they cetainly aren't for everyone. And every once in a while, they make me spit out coffee. Today's delivery:
(917): I just ate an adderall and jelly sandwich in front of my mom. Homework time!
For some reason, it made me happy. Now, to be fair, when I took Adderall, it was a necessary prescription (please, dear God, let me back on!), and I get the impression this person may not have a legal script for said "homework helpers". But either way, I'm diggin' it.

For old times' sake, here is one of my favorites:
(818): I can only speak casual parseltoungue, im not bad though. just the general, "wheres the bathroom?" "open the chamber of secrets" that type of stuff


Oh, and by the way, 20 DAYS UNTIL HP: HBP!!!

The Tyranny of Fangirls

I fall into an interesting demographic (in my opinion), because I am an educated woman in my mid-twenties who enjoyed reading the Twilight series. I am certainly not alone, but we are an admittedly outnumbered group. Mind you, I did not say they were good books, and I think it is a bit snotty to refer to them as 'literature', even though I suppose they are in fact.

I consider myself to be a Harry Potter fangirl, so I can appreciate the nickname, but the craziness that is often attached is beyond me. Especially the craziness over Robert Pattinson. OK, so he has moments of charm, and is very occasionally handsome, but there really is nothing special about him. Mostly it goes over my head because the character of Edward, to which RobPatt owes his following, is in no way appealing to me.

So it is with a slightly shameful smirk that I report that he was clipped by a taxi in Manhattan while running to escape from tween fangirls! The good, Christian woman I aim to be is shaking her head at my glee, but it made me laugh at the sheer ridiculousness of our society and their priorities!

At least if he had to go to the hospital, they might bathe him...

Nude with Neil Patrick Harris

So, I have your attention? Well, the headline is actually a legitamite representation of the topic for this blog.

If you live in or anywhere near Philadelphia and are willign to be nude on camera, GOOD NEWS!

"An e-mail from Mike Lemon Casting, forwarded ... by a local actor, says the background talent will be portraying "NUDE people in a sex club, dancing and 'hanging out.' There will be NO simulated sex of any kind. Talent will need to be comfortable with being NUDE." The work will be done next week."

Apparently NPH is in a flick called The Best and the Brightest, and it is filming soon in Philly. And requires much nakedness. For about $140 a day. Come on, people... NPH!!

If you are interested, and you know you are, here is the info for casting:

Monavie Challenge

So this week I will be chugging miracle juice. That's right, you heard me. Miracle Juice. Also known as Monavie. It is made up of 19 fruits, many of which I have never heard of. I have heard reports saying ti improved everything from vision to concentration to allergies! So I will report back by the end of the week, although the main thing I will actually be able to chart is whether I lost weight. I don't own a scale, but I am gauging in inches rather than pounds. So we shall see.

According to the handouts, the blueberries are what help with memory and other cognitive function, so in addition to the juice, Im noshing on berries right now. Although, I am contemplating coffee and a donut... oh well, I can't become a crazy health-nut overnight!

The biggest downside (well, really the only downside as of yet) is that the juice tastes pretty heinous. It's very... cloudy, even after a thorough shaking. We shall see. Maybe by the end of the week, I will love the stuff. We shall see...

Good Omens

While I'm on my book reading kick, I would like to take a moment to recommend one of my favorites to read over and over again: Good Omens, by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett.

I stumbled across a Pajiban review of it this morning, and now I desperately wish I had it with me (I have to go sit and train on a new program at our othe rlocation later - boring). I have to put it at the bottom of a long list, because I am determined to read only new works right now; well, new to me.

This book follows a demon (Crowley) and an angel (Aziraphale) through Eden to Apocolypse-to-be. Along the way we are introduced to countless characters, all of which play into the story poetically. From Satanic nuns to the Four Horsemen, these characters weave the story together.

To give you an idea of the brilliant writing, here is an amazing quote referencing God's plan for us all:

"God does not play dice with the universe: He plays an ineffable game of His own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any of the other players [i.e. everybody], to being involved in an obscure and complex variant of poker in a pitch-dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a Dealer who won't tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time."

An immeasurably humorous book which pokes fun at just about everything blasphemous, this book will have you cracking up in no time.
