Random Friday Thoughts

Mehgan Murphy, Smithsonian’s National Zoo – Associated Press

— It snowed here yesterday, and for a time, the flakes were gigantic and beautiful. The photo above is from today’s Washington Post; that’s Luke, a resident of the National Zoo, looking adorably confused about what the hell that white stuff falling from the sky is and also like he’s interested in taking a healthy bite out of my Uggs.
— Scott and I very much wanted to see Sharon Jones at the Black Cat last night, but we didn’t get tickets in time. We tried the Craigslist route, but people were being assholes — asking $200 bucks a ticket. As the day went on, and the snow kept falling, more and more tickets for sale appeared, with quickly dropping prices. That prompted me to post an ad that basically said: You suck for trying to scalp your tickets, and now you’re getting screwed! Ha Ha Ha! Posted from Location: YOUR BUTT. It was flagged for removal with 10 minutes; I laughed at my cleverness for at least 15.
— Sarah Silverman’s dog is ugly. And something about her show makes me feel unsettled. Is that the whole point? If so, I don’t get it.
–It’s a lot harder to pick up cats and make them look all ‘Pew Pew Pew’ than you might think.
— This writer’s strike is le suck.
— I want to see ‘Atonement,’ ’27 Dresses,’ and ‘Cloverfield’ this weekend. Does this make me schizophrenic, normal, or susceptible to awards/marketing/Internet hype?

    I, too, am unsure how to react to Sarah Silverman’s show. I’ve only seen a handfull of episodes and while I’ve laughed heartily at times, I’ve also cringed and felt like crying at other times.

    Cloverfield is out this weekend? Hmm. Now I need an excuse to get out of the house. I still need to see the Coen brothers movie, the name escapes me.

    The snow was nice yesterday. The evening drizzle and overnight freezing, not nice.

  • I think Sarah Silverman’s overrated and her entire humor is based on LOOK I AM A NOT-UNATTRACTIVE GIRL SAYING NAUGHT WORDS! VAGINABUTT! It gets old.

    Also, I promise you that the Writers’ Strike is le suck when you’re walking the picket lines and holding down three jobs. But then again, that’s one of the reasons we’re striking.
