Now in all my years of existence, I have never had a google alert for anything ever. Mostly because I have no idea how to set one, and also because there isn’t really anything I want regular alerts about, except maybe if Ian Somerhalder suddenly finds himself single and/or in need of CPR, but I like to be realistic. That’s why if I ever do set an alert I will set it on “*insert CW network actor’s name here* single and looking for hot Indian love”.
I’ve finally rewatched all 8 seasons of Full House and I have concluded that this is all I want for Christmas:
I’d be okay with the kid too.
The entire month has been one of regret and regression.
- I saw the entire 4th season of Scrubs again. Elliot gets more shrill every time and I am left feeling distinctly disappointed that I don’t have someone to do the eagle with:
- I started reading the entire Mediator series by Meg Cabot again. Gawd I love Happy Endings( if you know what I mean). Consequently I had a conversation with my great grand uncle, which was really weird because he is still alive and very opposed to talking to “little girls”.
- Having read the Mediator series again I realized Jesse whateverhislastnameis from the books must have been inspired by John Stamos as Uncle Jesse. The resemblance is too uncanny to ignore imo unless you are an expert at the art of bliss through ignorance. I am seriously considering taking that course. People go in stupid and they come out happy and intellectually unchanged.
- Also I finally watched the Breakfast club and my non-arachnid senses started tingling. You see I have this superpower I can identify people who have made cameos in the shows I watch when they show up in other parts, however tiny(that’s definitley not what she said). In fact I saw the tinier the part in the movie/show/whatever/anti-drug ad campaign, the better. SO turns out the Alison character looked super-familiar and I was like WHOA that’s Mr.Yin from Psych. And those were the 5 most exciting seconds( things your girlfriends says about you ) of the whole movie for me. I finally knew what Molly Ringwald looks like and Judd Nelson should definitely consider eating some cayenne peppers and trying to breathe fire. It just might work.
In the spirit of my regression I feel this link about teen/Disney/twins/Amanda Bynes is quite appropriate http://bit.ly/16pEARW
Next on my agenda catch a bunch of Hitchcock movies and actually read The Great Gatsby before I go see the movie next week. Check out this hilarious video I found while trying to find out what the movie was about:

My week in TV
- Elementary: So far honestly the show has been good, but after Sherlock I wasn’t expecting much. I liked it, but did not love it. The finale changed all that for me. I have two words for you : Irene Alder is Jim Moriarty. HOLY SHIT I DID NOT SEE THAT COMING. I also love the woman they got to play Irene, she is brilliant in it. She went from helpless hellokitty type to ice queen assassin in under 60 seconds and boy did I enjoy the twist I was all like:
- Seriously though the finale was ohmygawdsoveryawesome. I actually had an impromptu all stuffed animals are invited dance-party for 10 seconds to celebrate the awesomeness.
- I’m not big on reviewing stuff. If something blows my mind imma tell you. This week’s Psych was it’s usual amazingness but I love Dule Hill’s AWWWWWWWWWW YEAH so much. He really should host radio. I would listen to that show, you know that’s right. Speaking off which I’ve never heard Howard Stern on air either(just add that to my pop-culturally challengedness).
- If anyone is actually reading this I would love some suggestions on easily covering the vast extremely well-charted waters of pop-culture.
- Also check out my piece for the-nri.com http://bit.ly/10FbMRf
- There’s an awesome new book out by the writers of Psych : Psych’s Guide to Crimefighting for the totally unqualified. I haven’t read it yet but I know I will love it. The Psych writers are brilliant, so very incredibly brilliant. Speaking of books written by writers of Tv shows. I know you guys have heard of Tina Fey’s Bossypants and possibly Mindy Kaling’s ‘Is Everybody hanging out with me”. You should check these books out though they are so hilarious that the milk I drank came out both my nostrils, even the left one which usually doesn’t even let air in(or out).
- 30 Rock writer Vali Chandrasekaran and The office writer Steve Hely wrote a travel guide which will make Lonely Planet blush. It’s funny, it’s ridiculous and it’s a race between a hare and a bear.
- Also by Steve Hely of The Office fame ‘How I became a famous Novelist’. The book is definitely funny, not ass hilarious as the Ridiculous race. It kinda sputtered out in the end, going all serious-ish, but worth a read still.
