3-D



I love this photo. But I'm pretty sure he's not watching "My Bloody Valentine: 3-D"

ReDo

I looked it up, and that last post should have read "thumbs down," not "thumb's down," at least according to the Dictionary application on my Mac.

I'm reposting rather than editing because I thought you guys should know. That's weird, right? I would have thought it was "thumb's down," as in "thumb is down" or even "the down of the thumb."

But, what do I know? It's 3am and I've been on a plane for 6 hours. Me sleepy.

Continental Airlines Is the Worst Airline to Fly When You Are Traveling with a Pet. They Really Need to Get Their Shit Together.

Post title says it all.

Dignan gives Continental a big thumb's down.

Except he doesn't have thumbs.

Photo from after Dark Matter last night.

Now, let's discuss Twitter. Yay, or nay? Please share.

Gracias

Thanks so much to Dave, Todd, and Jess for having me on their radio show, Dark Matter. We talked about love, tea parties, politics, and gay people.

Super fun.

Thanks, Dave, and thanks to everyone who listened!

Parks and Recreation

Sorry, dudes. Looks like they pushed my episode back a week, so I won't be on tomorrow.

You'll have to wait 7 more days!

One More Thing

Read what Heather says about her wonderful little girl.

And also, here's a little taste of Maddie for you:

Now, head on over to MarchofDimes.com.

Maddie

Considering the awesomeness of my friend Heather, it doesn't surprise me that she received so much attention blogging about her beautiful little girl Maddie.

Nor does it surprise me the amount of press (like this ) her story has received since Maddie's passing.

Maddie's memory has been honored by so many who loved her (and so many who never even knew her) through donations to the March of Dimes.

You can donate here.

And here is some more coverage of their story:

Residual Paparazzi



I'm sure this paparazzi shot was targeting Amy, but I will gladly take the residual stalkering.

Perhaps I would get stalkers of my own if I stopped wearing a GIANT ugly coat between takes.

What do you want from me? It was cold out.

Really?

I just got a callback for a stool softener commercial.

What an awesome day.

Life

As I wrote below, a few days ago, a darling little girl passed away.

I still can't quite wrap my head around this. I've been walking around in a daze, alternating between tears and disbelief.

And after I think about the devastation of losing such a perfect little person like Maddie, I wonder how her parents could ever possibly live life again.

But then I realize that they will because that is who they are.

It won't happen this month, or maybe even this year. But they will smile and laugh again one day, and they will carry on because they are two of the most amazing people I've ever met.

But what pisses me off is that one day, they'll be at the grocery store, or in line at the movies, and maybe they'll be taking a little too long because they can't find their wallet. And maybe some douchebag in line behind them will say, "Can you hurry the fuck up?"

And if I were an omniscient being watching that from above, I would want to take that douchebag in line, grab him by his throat, and hurl him up against the wall. And I would get right up in his face and say, "Those people lost their little girl. THEY LOST THEIR LITTLE GIRL. So, while you're waiting an extra 2 seconds for your goddamn Sour Patch Kids, I want you to just TRY and imagine what it would be like to create a perfect little girl that you love more than life itself, and then lose her. Just TRY to imagine that."

My point is, Heather and Mike are the two people that I know who are going through the worst tragedy one could imagine. And there are other people out there who have dealt with similar tragedies. But we might not know this when we come across them in our daily lives. When they take too long in the check out line, when they grab the last towel at the gym, or when they accidentally spill a coffee on your shoe.

So the next time we find ourselves too eager to be the douchebag, we might want to consider the fact that we have no idea where other people are coming from.

Angel



I just received some terrible news. Today, my friends Heather and Mike lost their little girl, Maddie.

I can't begin to explain how cute this little girl was, how she was always smiling, or how Heather and Mike are the two nicest, funniest, smartest, best parents/friends/people you could ever meet.

If you're not one of the bazillion people who reads Heather's blog , you should know that she is nothing short of awesome, and I can't quite wrap my head around why this is happening. I just saw them less than 2 weeks ago and Maddie was blowing kisses and laughing. There is a dull cloud of shock hanging overhead. I can't believe this is real, and I can't stop crying, and thinking about what Heather and Mike must be feeling.

Please, take a moment to send your prayers their way. And please make a donation to The March of Dimes in Madeline Alice Spohr's name.

FINALLY!

Suck on THIS, dudes!

One interesting fact: The older the father, the lower the IQ of the child. There's no difference with the age of the mother.

Set your mother-effing biological clocks, dudes.

So Would I, Dude. SO WOULD I.




You should try living off of a rich boyfriend! It seems to work for a lot of LA ladies.

Californdomestication

Moving from New York City to LA opens up a whole new world of domestic pleasures...and challenges.

New Yorkers do not drive cars. We do not make massive grocery store trips. We do not tend to cook much at home (except for pasta and tacos - two things that even an idiot can prepare).

In New York, it's about efficiency, speed and convenience. In LA, it's about taking your time.

In changing my way of thinking, I have experienced many moments of frustration and exasperation. I have also, however, felt like a grown up for the first time. That's probably because I have found myself doing things that I last experienced when I saw my parents do them.

For example, unloading groceries from a car, waking up to the smell of fresh-cut grass, loading a dishwasher, unloading a dishwasher, doing laundry in my own home, buying produce, etc.

But, at the same time, I often find myself in embarrassing situations. You see, as a New Yorker, you may not learn simple things that a young suburban person might.

I struggled with the coffee grinding machine at Ralph's today for a good 20 minutes. I didn't want to ask for help, for fear that a 14 year old would laugh at me.

So now, I'm drinking a cup of coffee that I'm pretty sure could be a hell of a lot better.
