1. I've been watching 10 Things I Hate About You. No, not the movie. The TV show. I know, I KNOW. I'm sure Heath Ledger is rolling in his grave, but in spite of the terrible acting (oh and the acting is BAD. Like MTV Undressed bad.), I sort of love it. I mean how do you not like a show that makes fun of man scarves and includes dialogue like this:
Bianca (terrible actress and incredibly grating): I'm in the middle of a major crisis. Chastity thinks I'm a total goodie goodie.
Kat (probably the best actress on the show and in spite of some over the top sarcasm, I sort of like her. She's no Julia Stiles, but she'll do.): That is a major crisis. It ranks right up there with the global recession and the collapse of the Arctic Shelf. Let's turn on the radio and see if Bono wrote a song about you.
Yes, I laughed out loud watching a show on ABC Family that's targeting 12-year-old girls. Deal with it.
2. I'm starting to feel bad for PC on NYC Prep. I know, I know. I did that whole d-bag-o-meter post about him and he really is an asshole. But I'm starting to think he's maybe just been stuck inside the closet for too long, which would make anyone a little bitchy, right?
I think that PC needs to come out of the closet and ditch all of the fame whores who are trying to take advantage of him and his insane trust fund. Yeah, yeah, I guess I really do have a soft spot for poor little rich boys. Especially if they're bi-curious. For the record, being bitchy and gay is totally different than being bitchy and straight.
3. I have purchased and read L.A. Candy. I wanted it to be terrible. I wanted to hate it, but really it's just a mildly entertaining beach read. You can't even tell how the characters correlate to the girls on the Hills which is uber annoying.
Rumors abound that LC hired a ghost writer to write the thing, so I kept imagining how their writing process worked.
A poor, starving, overworked ghost writer picks up her phone wearing yoga pants with a hole in the crotch and a yellowing white wife beater.
Ghost Writer: Hello?
LC: It's me.
Ghost Writer: Oh...hi, Lauren. The books coming along great I just had this great idea for a plot twist -
LC: Yeah, yeah, fantastic. Chapter 10, hot blue dress and I'm annoyed with a camera man for looking at me funny.
Ghost Writer: Um...ok. Why were you annoy-
LC: Ok, gotta run. Pinkberry calls! Kisses!
Ghost Writer: *Stares at her disconnected phone and cries.*
4. I'm considering leaving my family and running away with a fictional character. Oh, and he happens to be a fallen angel named Patch. Yeah, that's right, I finished HUSH, HUSH. It was a fabulous read and I wholeheartedly agree with the predictions that it will be the next Twilight.
Jealous? As soon as Laura is done reading we'll hold a little contest to give our copy away to one lucky reader, so stay tuned.
Whew, I feel so much better now that I've gotten all that off my chest. Confessions of your own? Please share in the comments.
