turns out, it's not only jerry o'connell that has been sucked into the vortex that is the lifetime movie event - nora roberts, edition.
looks like jason lewis, brittany murphy & leann rimes will all be playing sultry roles for the cable network. leann is also allegedly having an affair with her airbrushed co-star. that's more scandalous than lifetime could ever hope to be...
I go and almost order a Starbucks Venti on THREE separate occasions last week. I was seriously rationalising each time why the Venti was a good idea. WTF? Everyone knows how I feel about the Venti. Total coco loco. Clearly, I have lost all sense of reality. I must be allergic to work.
poor jerry o'connell. i know that he just had twins and kids are expensive, but did he have to go for this role? check out this lifetime movie of the week and his fabio-style poster that's around town right now.
29. What is the most impressive thing you've ever cooked?
i actually like to cook, but don't do anything super impressive very often. i think my best dish was a chocolate & banana bread pudding. i went to the bakery just before closing and ended up with 3 free loaves. rather than go to waste, i whipped up a pudding - complete with a water bath and everything. even served it with custard. yum.
so, i get it. it's winter. it's chilly out. so when there is even the slightest bit of a hit of spring everyone gets excited.
that said, it's still winter, it was only 57.6° out in nyc on friday and it was tourist hell in times square. but it's still no excuse for shorts & mandals. (note the couple on the left in matching black puffy coats).
Started back at work this week, and already I feel like technology has passed me by. Yammer is the new 'must-have' app, apparently the business form of Twitter or Facebook. Either way, I hate it.
Not only is everyone inviting me to be their Yammer buddy with the freakish statement "you are now being followed by [insert name]"; like any of us need another place to check if someone has communicated with us. But now the person who sits next to me has just invited me to be in their Yammer thingey, pledging to follow my every move online. This is where I draw the line.
Yammer and I will not be friends. I think all these new tools that have sprung up under the guise of "more effective communication" are such a waste of space. Just another way to pretend your busy in my mind....which incidentally I am all for but being stalked at work by another form of technology by people I am trying to limit communication with is just too much.
today, the mayor apparently renamed the block next to my work (a.k.a. w53rd st.) "U2 Way". i was too lazy to go down the 7 stories to check out the festivities, but did get a snap of the jazzy new sign. interestingly, U2 way is the next block over from det. lennie briscoe.
low-cost & no-frills european carrier ryanair recently said it's considering charging to use the toilet in flight. granted, they charge only £2 for a flight, but there is nothing admirable about this. just plain coco loco.
