What Did You Do This Weekend?
Andy talks about his received gifts and some TV gems.
Friday night should have been all about the big Paris Hilton-is-going-to-jail-breaking-news. But at this point, does anybody care one way or another what happens to her? I loved Kathy Hilton accusing the judge of being a publicity whore. Rich. And zzzzz.
Saturday in NYC felt like walking around in a poppy field. I was in a total allergy haze all day. I sleepwalked my way through some galleries with Bruce and almost fell asleep on a lounge at Scoop waiting for him to purchase thongs.
Saturday night we had the time of our lives at the original 2nd Avenue Palm, which is fast becoming a Saturday Night classic venue. Midway through the meal, Liza announced that it was "Liza's Favorite Things" Night at the Palm! And that we were the lucky audience members who would all be gifted! We freaked out. Suddenly "YOU get a car! YOU get a car! EVERY BODY GETS A CAR!!!" rang through my head. I thought I was going to throw a chair. So Liza pulls out a big bag and out come the gifts! Turns out that Oprah Liza brought us each her current favorite thing (Pink Jasmine Body Creme from Fresh)! And I got some creme! And BRUCE got some creme! And TROY got some creme! And LYNN got some creme! And AMANDA got some creme! And EVERY BODY GOT SOME CREME! And YOU get the idea! And I soon got the idea to have "favorite things" dinners where everybody brings their current fave thing to dinner for everybody they're eating with. So if you're eating with 5 other people, then everybody brings 5 identical gifts and gets 5 gifts. (I think I'd bring lilac dark chocolate for everybody.) Nobody liked my idea though, and thought we should do it where it's one person's favorite thing night and so you leave with that person's gift. And then you have five more meals and get five more gifts, providing you can find five nights to schedule five meals sometime before you die. I guess that's how we are going to do it.
Yesterday I saw "Spider Man 8" and it was not only the highest opening film in history, it's the biggest piece of crap in history too! It sucks! It's 5 movies in one ... it makes no sense ... is boring ... spidey looks pudgy ... Kirsten Dunst is blah ... it has 4 endings ... and I freaking hated it. Stop the madness. It really stunk.
Last night was the big finale of "Amazing Race" and it was almost as blah as Spidey. Poor Charla and Mirna came in 3rd. The guy and the girl won. I forgot their names and everything else about them. I am so glad it was only an hour. I tried watching "Celebrity Fit Club" to see Maureen McCormack but I am not getting enough of her; all the screentime is going to Dustin Diamond. Then I switched to the SNL documentary. I loved seeing Marci Klein blabbing about the behind the scenes scoop. By the way, Molly Shannon is hosting a new episode this week and I can't wait. I wound up cracking open my dvr and watching an old "American Masters" about Aretha Franklin.Wow. I cannot overstate how much "Spider Man 8" sucked. I am trying to focus on Aretha and get the noise out of my head.
