Three good things

1. Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip will go down as one of the top five shows of all time. After watching the series premiere tonight, I honestly think it’s that good. Aaron Sorkin is at his best with this one and the cast is amazing. Get in on the ground floor with me on this one, folks—we’ll be telling our kids about this show one day.

2. My parents got me a sweet ass digital camera as a going away present. I’ll admit it—until now I never really understood why people take pictures. However, this thing is so awesome that it could make a picture of me shoving an entire bag of Sour Patch Kids in my mouth while holding two sparklers look classy. In fact, I think I’ll go test that theory. I’m excited!

3. Today I wanted to eat at Bosco Burgers, my favorite fast food place in the area. However, since I didn’t have any cash on me (as usual) and because I vaguely remembered something about them not taking credit cards, I figured I should called them up first and ask about it before driving all the way over there. Because I was out and about, I used 4-1-1 on my cell and the operator must have dialed the number wrong because I had the following conversation after she connected us:

Confused lady: Architectural Heritage Foundation, how may I help you?

Me: Ummm….do you sell delicious cheese burgers there?

CL: Excuse me?


CL: I think you have the wrong number. Good day, sir—

Me: No, WAIT. I didn’t know that architecture could have heritage, much less so much of it that it warrants a foundation. Since I’ve got you on the phone, why don’t you tell me something about buildings?

CL: I’m hanging up now.


  • I'm looking forward to reading your attempts at trying to obtain a tasty cheeseburger in Ukraine. "No, I"m not looking for a jellied veal roll or vareniky - I want a tasty cheeseburger - without any vegetables or any substance that used to be a plant!"

  • I agree with you about Studio 60. For one, you can't go wrong with a cast like that. Not to mention that they all have great chemistry already and that is usually never the case with a new show. And, for once, I don't mind Amanda Peet :)

  • Mmmmm, I LOVE sour patch kids. Maybe I'll try that experiment myself as soon as I buy my digital camera.
    See you in 9 days. :-)
