Lori Loughlin keeping it tight

0

As a person aspiring to be writer and a tempestuous red-blooded barely non-teenager-esque person, you can understand that I subject myself to insane bouts of jealousy, mostly with regards to my physical appearance. *insert rant about female insecurity perpetuated by the likes of Kate Moss here*. No one appreciates the effort that goes into keepin it tight more than someone who is not the opposite (keepin it lose just sounds bad) but is trying to tighten it up. I’ve only recently started exercising and working out regularly Blogilates has inspired me and yup I’m seeing the results already. In fact, I bet on losing 4% of my weight in June with Cassey (my wonderfully chipper Youtube Fitness Guru) on DietBet, feel free to join in the fun and help me make some money. Watching last week’s episode of Psych which guest stars Lori Loughlin, all I could think was-daaaaaamn that woman is keepin it tiiiiiiiiiight. I mean just look at these :

I could not be more jealous

Reading stuff I wrote ages ago, I haven’t changed as much as I’d thought

I could not be more jealous

Good genes and two hours every morning in the gym? I’m just guessing here, but seriously if I look that good at her age well I’d probably be a cougar and hopefully not like this :

Courteney Cox, Cougar Town

So I know there’s a ton of important stuff happening out there and then here I am talking about TV, but there’s a ton of websites for news and I read it, but writing it just makes me lose faith in humanity, not that I had much to begin with. What I do have an excess of is trust issues, control-freaks around me, premature Carpel Tunnel Syndrome and the desire to test-operate a drone of some sort.

In my continuing endeavor to catch up to Pop Culture

dastardly

 

I have realized that Saturday Night Live is my savior, redemption and anti-Judas. I’ve been watching random episodes of the show and Googling almost every alternate name that they drop. This week I found out who Paula Deen is, who Rob Ford is and the name of that guy Cobie Smulders made a baby with. I just have to say, I love Seth Meyers and Fred Armisen. The latter especially for when he guest-starred on Parks and Recreation. BEST EPISODE EVER.

This was a comment below the video which epitomizes the sentiments of rebels against voluntary ignorance of one’s funny bone(s, I am fairly certain I have at least 3 funny bones, they look like hilarious in X-rays). The comment which she’s replied to is hidden cause it was all negative and making people think that higher taxes are a good idea and causing general bummed out-ness.

Bill Hader, whom I knew only from his apperance on THe Mindy Project is brilliant! Stefon OMFG. I could just spend all day filling his dimples with chocolate sauce and then emptying them in ways that are too inappropriate to be decribed on a non NSFW blog.

Speaking of The Mindy Project, check out the conversation I had with Edward Weeks ( he plays Dr. Jeremy Reed on the show), hot, British, on the verge of cool, but still okay with being in a pseudo Sauna with two weirdos. I just really love Jeremy and Morgan together :D. Not surprised that EdWeeks didn’t reply to crazy fangirls trying to get him to be gay with Ike Barinholtz on screen. Oh well.

I also found out that this guy from Psych :

Spl agent Lars Ewing

who also guest-stars on Chuck at some point according to IMDB, though I cannot really place where, he is apparently famous for some stuff that wasn’t a TV show, a movie called La Bamba. This whole time I thought La Bamba was a song made for Karaoke by Wyclef Jean. Oh well, what’s your  week been like? Did the hot guys help with the finals, cause mine went real smooth.

Life Without Opposable Thumbs

0

Image

I think I owe you an explanation and it’s very likely that if we’ve met, I also owe you some money. Here’s the explanation-

Firstly do not be alarmed, I do have opposable thumbs and am not the victim of some newfound disformity. It’s just, I happened to be re-watching Season 2 of Scrubs, the Halloween episode and Dr.Cox aka Perry also widely known as my favorite character in the Hates-everybody category  happened to say “you have opposable thumbs, use them” to a large man in a gorilla costume. Out of context whether or not you are familiar with the scene, I thought of what if he didn’t have opposable thumbs? Then what? This particular train of thought ended rather quickly and I was left thinking “Life without Opposable Thumbs” would be such a great title for a blog-post.

Here’s the thing about me, I am a writer of the highest calibre. Were this a different more sophisticated electricity-less era, I could have proven this to you by showing you just how worn out my quill is. However since we are living in a much more dramatic and much less interesting technological age this blog will have to suffice. As you can see I try not to make everything about myself and the fact that I own a t-shirt which claims that “I am the center of the universe” should do nothing to convince you otherwise.

Let’s get down to business now shall we?

I have realized with great conviction that there is only one thing I aspire to be- a TV writer, a sitcom writer to be more specific.

My life goals can be eloquently summarized in the following manner:

1.Write and star in own sitcom a la Tina Fey/ Amy Poehler/ Mindy Kaling

2. Write 7 part (not a big fan of trilogies) best-selling novel series a la J.K.Rowling

3. Get pilot’s license.

4.Acquire 4 different puppies of distinct but fluffy varieties and have unscheduled but extremely regular puppy parties.

5. Meet Robert Downey Jr.

6. Go to and have a panel at Comic Con

7.Update this blog weekly.

Okay well let’s face it no one in their right mind would ever give me a pilot’s license, but of course the rest is very doable and will be done asap.

I have chosen MIndy kaling as my preferred role model because even though she may not have realized it yet despite that one tweet I sent her last year, she and I are going to be best friends-we have so much in common.

Mindy’s mom was a gynecologist, so is mine. Mindy was in Nigeria during her early childhood before her parents were awesome and decided to move to the states, I was in Nigeria for most of my formative years too. Mindy’s dad is Tamilian, so is mine. Mindy has her own TV show and is awesome, I am pretty damn awesome and will have my own TV show soon. Mindy is extremely funny, if my school actually did the whole yearbook thing, I would’ve had that Class Clown title in the bag.

This blog is fresh start for me. Hopefully to interact with more aspiring writers TV and otherwise. Put up some of my work. You can read some of the stuff I’ve written in fantasy/fiction at http://bit.ly/YSbr97 and I’ll be starting a spec/script sharing section soon. Here’s what you can expect in general- talk about the shows I am watching currently, TV writers that inspire me, episodes I like, actors I would love to do, and other writerly stuff like that.

For today I’ll give you the short version because intimidation is just not my style:

House of Lies : Loving it, I wouldn’t mind less scenes of Cheadle fucking people, but that’s just my orthodox Indian upbringing talking. Ben Schwartz aka Jean Ralphio from Parks and Rec, who knew he could be more awesome? I’m two episodes in and I don’t think I am ever coming back out. (That’s what she said ).

I also spent some time re-watching early episodes of the comedy classic Full House to revisit the good old days and remind myself that the Olsen twins existed.

Caught the new ‘The Mindy Project'(I really thought she could’ve come up with a better name for the show)- you get some never before seen footage and parts of Chris Messina(Danny Castellano) and Mark Duplass(Brendan Delaurier) unleashes the beast inside. Honestly the best part for me was Ike Barinholtz(Morgan Tuckers) the character is just amazing.

Caught the new episode of New Girl. It was underwhelming despite how much I love Brenda Song (Daisy) guest starring. Without Max Greenfield(Schmidt) the episode would’ve been supremely pointless. I didn’t even LOL once, but I’m hoping it was just an off night and won’t be like Community where from Season 2 everything just went downhill.

Tomorrow is Thursday and that means Parks & Rec, Vampire Diaries oh hell I’m just gonna show you a snapshot of my calendar Image

Catcha on the flipside…of the remote 🙂
