Don't mess with my loved ones

So now my dvr has taken to only recording parts of episodes, for no reason. I have 20 minutes of House from this week, and only one minute from 30 Rock last week. There's no conflicts, no explanation at all for it. Cable provider, I wish you would treat me with the respect that I deserve.

Wardrobe malfunction

I went to a wedding this past weekend (my third wedding in South Bend, in case anyone is keeping count!) and my dress broke between the wedding and the reception.  The zipper got stuck halfway closed, and wouldn't move up or down!  Totally trapped  Luckily I had a cardigan with me so I just put that on and wore it for the rest of the night, and it was kind of a cool evening so half of the girls there were doing the same thing.  And in fact, I got several compliments on my dress!  I just had to keep the cardigan on the whole night so no one knew my entire back was exposed underneath.  And at the end of the night I literally just had to break the zipper to get the dress off, I was totally stuck in there.  I tried pulling it off over my head, but that just caused a lot of squishing and pain.  I think the dress is salvageable, I just need a tailor to put a new zipper in, but it was pretty funny.  So I thought I'd share.  Unfortunately I realized yesterday that there is not one single picture of me from the wedding where you can see any of my dress at all, so you'll just have to imagine it.  Blue with silver sequins, go.

"Live" tv

I think it's really funny that Idol uses the dress rehearsal footage for showing the recap tape at the end of the show because tonight on the live show Crystal broke down in tears, while in the recap we see a perfect ending to the song. I wonder if people were confused.

I'm quick

After living in my apartment building for more than six months, I just discovered that it has a back door!  Will wonders never cease.

My favorite books

Ann M. Martin! I totally adored her as a kid, I owned more than 100 Baby-Sitters Club books. She's the only famous person I've ever written to (don't judge me), I remember I got back a form letter but I'd asked about why she doesn't have the characters get any older (they just repeated eighth grade over and over) and she had a handwritten PS at the end of the letter about that question. Good times.

Everybody just shut up

Today is one of those days where I really hate this town. Right now outside my apartment is a big group of guys banging on drums and singing out loud. I'm sorry, how is this acceptable? They're not homeless guys, just a group that apparently decided that the sidewalk is their backyard! And on the way home tonight I was walking by some other guy who decided that singing out loud quite loudly by himself was ok. Seriously? And now that it's finally nice outside there are retarded tourists everywhere who take up all of the aforementioned sidewalks, are not interested in getting out of your way when you try to get on the metro, and generally make life difficult. And how come there is an ambulance going by every five minutes? There is no such thing as quiet here! And I am freaking tired of it. You know what else I'm tired of? Getting mail about the damn census. I filled it out when I got it so leave me the f*ck alone already. Everything can just suck it.

Best $10 a month I spend

Netflix on demand now has a bunch of Joss Whedon stuff (Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse).  Score!
