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.

If you liked this post, check out the time Rick and I argued about penis faucets. I think he was right that time.

And it looks like contributing mama Daphne Biener is witnessing a lot of sex these days. And lucky for us, she broke out the camera. Click on contributing mamas to read more.

    We’re only a week and a half from the big premier of Lost. Just thinking of my steamy Sawyer coming back to me is enough.  Oh, and Jon Stewart’s return too.  I’ve missed my boys for sure

  • Erin says:

    we’ve been catching up on movies too.
    Batman(the dark night)
    Run Fat Boy Run and if you like this you have to see The Station Agent.
    and Smart People with SJP. pretty good.
    also glad tv is back on except for grey’s that show is just too boring and i’m hating the whole denny thing.  i think lipstick jungle is done this week. boo!

    Not only is Lost coming back but I read that Sawyer is SHIRTLESS for the ENTIRE EPISODE. I’m also a bit perkier these days knowing I have 7 more episodes of Nip/Tuck to air and god forbid I go too long without another installment of the Real Housewives. When the OC ends NYC begins! Now if Rachel Zoe and Flipping Out both come back soon I’ll know the world is really becoming a better place. Ha!

    And yes, Rufus’ bangs looked weird to me too. A little too wispy for my tastes.

    Oh, we need some entertainment around here, too.I don’t know what’s going on over at  “Grey’s Anatomy”, but it now makes me feel queasy when I watch it.

  • Terra says:

    much like my husband and most I know, they are always right and even when proven wrong there is little resemblance of admittance (SP?)

    Great fun to read

  • calikim says:

    He must have confused the book with the movie. HA!! ; )

    I’m going to see the guy who wrote that book in Feb. Should be a blast to have him taunting me while I am in the audience telling me why “He’s just not that into ME”!!

  • I love this story. I laughed out loud at the image of you running between your husband and the video rental guy to get the facts.

    I too have become addicted to Gossip Girl and am currently suffering from motion sickness due to Jenny’s rapidfire personality fluctuations. And I’m so glad that smarmy Aaron is out of the picture now. I wanted to attack his pathetic facial hair wisps with a razor every time his face appeared on screen.

    Loving Gossip Girl.  Bendels asked me to stop coming in to ask for ‘Blair’s new headband’.  They also reminded me I am the mom of a 9 year old and should stop wearing head pieces with flowers.  And they are supposed to be the authority on fashion, phu-lease.

  • amy says:

    There’s just something so nice about pointing out when they’re wrong. I get to do it a lot!

    So glad my TV is back, I was actually beginning to do productive things around the house. Really where’s the fun in that?

  • In case you haven’t gotten enough of the NY ‘social’ scene a la Gossip Girl, have you watched The Hills’ spinoff, The City? In fact, I’m wondering when you’re going to spot Miss Whitney Port since I think she lives and/or spends a lot of time in your neighborhood. Knowing Whitney works in the Meatpacking District almost made me try to strategically plan meetings down there when I was in NY this week, but I thought that would be really, really sad. However, I did look up each and every bar she visited on the show. So apparently I’m already at that low point. Whatever- please send photos when you see her. 🙂

    If you want good teen soft porn–with good acting AND awesome mature characters, try Friday Night Lights.  We have been watching the back episodes on DVD and I feel like my life has been changed.  Like back in the glory days of ER.  And I too can’t wait for that movie to come out!!!

  • Marisa says:

    I just started watching “Rock of Love Bus” and it baffles me that Brett Michaels wears more eye makeup  than me.  I’m sure Gossip Girl has got to be better than this show…

  • Turbo says:

    Jerry Garcia had it right: The women are smarter. I’m eating tacos right now, over my keyboard at work, so I’d better not check out the duel over penis faucets. At least not until I finish noshing 🙂

    I am glad that there are new episodes of Gossip Girl (and that I get to watch them this weekend, on Tivo).  Great post Kelc!!
