In a pitifully ironic statement of what a difference two years can make, the Chief Creative Officer of Liz Claiborne looks up from his menu to meet eyes with the 14-minute celebrity cum waiter who made the place mean something to him.
Designers, your challenge this week will be to make a romantic outfit out of items at this place that 's special to my heart, and to my heart of hearts. You can use anything you find here, from napkin linens to plastic bibs. Make it work, people!
Just when you thought the impossible would never happen, Tim and Andrae back together at Red Lobster. What's next, peace in the Middle East?
I don't understand this.
absolutcalm -- What Supervillains were secretly (or not so secretly) gay?
Two-Face. One side wears impeccable suits, perfectly-coiffed hair and a shave so close you could polish stuff with his cheeks, and the other side looks like he dressed in the dark, uses bar soap for shampoo, and is obsessed with number two. Do the math.
Lex Luthor. "Attention everyone, the winner for best Halloween costume is Jay Sherman as a bald gay man! All you other bald gay men can leave."
The Joker. He's wearing a purple suit, people. Do I have to draw a diagram?
Emperor Palpatine. Though his day of "mentoring" young Jedi are long over by the time Ep 6 rolls around, he still manages to get a fleeting thrill out of pairing younger ones together and jolting them with white arcs of "energy".
Per this Wiki list of Supervillains, I'm amused by the number of completely circumstantial villians that have been created over time. Tiny Joseph seems downright versatile compared to:
: No unusual powers, but is a skilled games and puzzle player. "Bruce, you're going to the Parker Brothers Convention? Are you mad?"
: The theme may be related to what day of the week it is or to a holiday or to a special anniversary on that date. "Strange...Central Park is on fire...and it's Arbor Day..."
: A man who armed himself with kite weapons to be used to commit crimes. He flies with a big kite strapped to him. "A trap is set for Kite Man at the golf course, and it looks like rain!"
: A character whose gimmick is designing schemes based on an angle. "Don't be obtuse, Wonder Woman. 6° separate you from destruction. When I'm done, you'll be in pro
observacious -- HDTV, SDTV, EDTV, or SCTV?
You can take your Canadian sketch shows, lame B-grade romantic comedies and crappy picture. I want my HDTV!
There's nothing HDTV could to to improve either SCTV or EDTV. It couldn't make one even funnier and the other even more bland. Stick with SDTV.
Would you rather see John Candy's pores or Jenna Elfman's?
subbes -- Brittuation '08 has captured our attention! How will other celebrities be forced to compete?
To remind her of all the things that ruined her body, Nicole Ritchie names her child "Porkbutter". Within months, the baby is a mere 14lb., after it's revealed Nicole's breasts produce milk that is the nutritional equivalent of Diet Dr Pepper.
Gary Busey is found standing on top of the Hollywood sign ranting about how some talentless hack can imitate his life like she's got a freaking playbook and she gets more attention than he ever has. "I was Buddy Holly, goddammit!"
Since bad parenting, dysfunctional upbringing, reckless driving, and the standard issue sex tapes have all been done to death, look for a celebrity donkey show clip to make its way on the interet this year from a gal who hasn't been making headlines.
Amy Winehouse's life continues as usual.
mac -- With 2007 bringing such TV marvels as Meercat Manor, I Pity the Fool (Awesome) and Kid Nation...what will 2008 bring?
Thanks to the success of the annual Puppy Bowl (and the writer-free nature of the program), Animal Planet debuts the National Puppy League, with weekly games between breeds of puppies and an American Idol-style system of voting to choose the winners.
Some execs at Comedy Central coming to their goddamn senses and un-cancelling Drawn Together.
A reality twist on Michael J. Fox's The Secret of My Success, where corporations are chosen randomly to participate in an experiment where a low-level employee (receptionist, mail clerk) is given a C-level executive position for six months.
A cross between Cops and Dog the Bounty Hunter, Cherubim follows teams of social workers for child and family service bureaus of several states as they hunt down deadbeat parents, break into unfit homes, and rescue children from depravity.
renob423 -- do you need a CDL to be a garbage man? what about a monster truck driver? VROOOOOOOOM!!! what about a hummer? how about a cab driver. did jimmy the cab driver on mtv have a CDL? how about a bulldozer? or a combine? do amish people have CDL's for buggy's?
Sorry, no hummers for you.
He rambles up a good point. If you need a special licenses to operate machinery, and you can't drive mopeds on certain roads, can we make it so that cyclists have to have a license to be on roads without bike lanes? It would be safer for everyone.
That wasn't really a cab driver, that was Donal Logue. But if I remember the sketches correctly, they would show his license on the passenger side visor sometimes, so yes, "Jimmy the Cab Driver" had a CDL.
If the Amish did need licenses to drive their buggies, I wonder what would constitute a driving offense. Missing a horseshoe? Galloping in a trot zone?
bobwhite -- Why is "singer/songwriter" (read: I cannot find any bandmates who can tolerate me) Kate Nash an embarassment to everybody with a vagina?
I admit I'm out of the hip music loop lately, but the list of chicks that make me embarrassed to have a vagina is such a long one that I doubt even if I was aware of her before now she'd barely break the top 100.
Singer/Songwriter chicks generally only sing and write songs about the only topic they have real knowledge of: their own vagina. I would hate for anyone to think we all spend that much time pontificating on our own vaginas.
Oh aren't you just adorable with your big smile and bright eyes. Everything seems so much deeper when it's coming out of such a cute dollbaby like you! Barf.
Now that the Winter Binge Season is over, how are you getting rid of the horribly fattening stuff you've accumulated over the past few months?
Bringing it into work and leaving it in the breakroom.
Throwing it all out, cold-turkey.
Since I hate to waste goodies, eating it all as fast as I can so there's less time I'm tempted by it.
Letting it all sit in the back of my cabinet untouched, thinking I'll eat it someday but knowing it's going to expire or still be there by this time next year.
