Let me take a moment to express my gratitude for some new episodes on TV lately.
I’m trying to remember my life before “Gossip Girl” but it just seems dark and meaningless and empty. We really need more soft porn teen dramas on television.
Right now, I’m strangely obsessed with Nate’s whereabouts and Rufus’ weird bangs. But don’t get caught up in my complex issues.
During the December TV drought, my husband and I watched a lot of movies. Like “The Women.” This movie totally made me insane because you never get to see one of the key players, Meg Ryan’s husband. It’s the ole Maris Crane nonsense. Oh by the way, my brother-in-law says hello.
I’ve really been looking forward to the new movie, “He’s Just Not That Into You.” It’s got Jennifer Aniston and a bunch of other super fancy stars.
So I ask my husband, who reads a trillion magazines and newspapers, when it’s coming out.
“It already came out. It wasn’t too good. It had a short run in the theaters,” he replies.
So I immediately rush to the video rental place and the all-knowing video guy says, “It’s not out yet. It comes out in theaters in February.”
So I deliver this news to my smarty pants husband and he replies confidently, “No, it definitely already came out. I remember.”
Who has the balls to contradict the video store guy?
I FINALLY realize that I should not be relying on actual people. Instead I should just turn to the trusty internet. And after a quick search, it’s clear that this movie does indeed open in February.
I send the link to my husband because I don’t want him delivering misinformation about chick flicks all over town. I promise you, it has nothing to do with proving my almighty rightness on this topic.
And finally, he admits defeat.
But it’s really unsatisfying because he just says something sweet like, “Sorry I gave you the wrong information” and nothing about my inherent brilliance when it comes to all things involving Jennifer Aniston.
I just hope he understands that when it comes to romantic comedies, you’ve just got to get your facts right.
