A couple things I’ve been thinking about while at 39,000 feet:

-How excited is everyone for Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin to host the Academy Awards?!

-Why is it that TV shows are randomly allowed to take breaks that last several months?

-The Olympics start tomorrow! I wonder if I’ll finally learn the difference between figure skating and ice dancing. Also, does anyone think that Shaun White will pull off a 1620 in the half pipe?

-The fact that The Runaways, a rock and roll biopic about Joan Jett and Cherie Currie was noticed at Sundance is not a surprise. The fact that Dakota Fanning is old enough to play such a role is extremely surprising.

-I am counting the days until Season 3 of Californication comes out on DVD.

-LOST is awesome. So glad that nine month break is over and that the final season is underway.

-I CANNOT believe that I STILL haven’t seen Avatar. Don’t even get me started….I’m disappointed in myself enough as it is.

-Why are there so many shows about fashion and cooking? Aren’t chefs limited to wearing white coats only and isn’t fashion all about not eating?

-I’m really bummed about J.D. Salinger.

-Why the hell wasn’t Crazy Heart nominated for Best Picture? Especially since this year, for the first time ever, there are ten slots (rather than five) for Best Picture. Unbelievable.


  1. The difference between figure skating and ice dancing: ice dancers are a.) not athletic enough to do the jumps and/or b.) they are too scared. That's not officially in the Olympic handbook or anything, but that is what I've gathered being that I am obsessed with figure skating and fall asleep during the pathetic wimpy sport of "ice dancing" (as it is allegedly referred to).

  2. So what you're saying is that ice dancing is a poor man's figure skating?

  3. Actually, this is NOT the first time ever there have been 10 categories in the Academy Awards. Go back to i believe the 30s or 40s and the same was true. just fyi
