Today, I went downtown (at ass o'clock in the morning) for dog-walking, as is my job. My dad drove me, because he's cool like that. My sister just forgot to tell me that Dwight finished filming on Tuesday, and therefore they didn't need me today, or tomorrow. So, Dwight was surprised to see me. Guggie was happy to see me and I walked him anyway, because at least someone was happy I was there. I called my dad back to tell him to come back (and he hadn't even left town, let alone his parking spot, luckily). So, days off, yay.

However, I think my sister and her husband need to communicate, make decisions, and hire a governor to pass on these decisions to me, because *damn* if this isn't irritating as all hell. I mean, through a series of fortunate events, I had a way back home, but I did give my sister an earful. A professional one. Because this *is* a job. And also, it was more of a Skypeful.

You know, I went to see RED in the theatre, and I loved it. It came out around the time Jackass 3D came out, and for *some* reason, the latter did better than the former. I will never understand that. You have this *awesome* comic book-based chicken movie, it's got this *amazing* cast, hilarious characters, and a 'ship. I don't even 'ship movies. Like, ever. Unless they were books first, and I 'shipped them in the book, and--huh, I'm not going anywhere with this. The point is, 'shiiiiiiiiiip.

*draws hearts and flowers around Frank Moses and Sarah*

*wonders why she never liked Bruce Willis before, decides it's because he had to age like a fine cheese wine first*

Also, unrelated, Helen Mirren? You are just awwwwesome.

Then there was that time I watched Mamma Mia and decided I quite loved Meryl Streep. Perhaps it's because I love people who can sing (seriously, Colin Firth? CALL ME). But also, I made a pact with myself in Grade 12, upon seeing her in Taming of the Shrew, that she was a horrible actress and overrated and I would never like her. What can I say? I take it all back. Perhaps it's also because she's a great advocate of loving your own body and never wishing you had someone else's, because you never will. Also, she took her husband's last name, which I don't usually advocate, though for fuck's sake, I'll be doing so, so I'm kind of a hypocrite, except then I found out what jerks my dad's adopted dad's family were, and so I'll be glad to not carry on Drozdiak. But I like when actresses don't just keep their stage name/maiden name in real life, because it kind of makes them actual people. Also, that one sentence back there was kind of an explosive run-on sentence. For which I apologize. Also? She has SIX kids. I have a great amount of respect for anyone who can look that great after 6 kids. I promise here and now that I will not make any remarks about vaginas and clown cars, or her sixth child just cartwheeling out. Well, I mean, except for the one I just made. I LOVE YOU MERYL.

I totally watched The San Lorenzo Job (Leverage), and everything I like about this show was there. There was the stealing a country, Goran Visjnic as an evil guy (Luka, what *happened* to you), there was everybody doing their stuff, there was Nate and Sophie waking up in bed together...

Ruy and I discussing the episode afterward, the first and third lines are obviously mine:

"Well, obviously, it was too hot, and they were tired, and had to take off their clothes and share a bed."


"Wait a minute, why am I making excuses for them? WOOOO, NATE/SOPHIE!"

"I did wonder."

Which brings me to another point about the word girlcrushes. Is that a hetero thing? Where you don't technically have a crush on someone, but you highly respect their work, and maybe like to catch them on TV? I mean, the entire world can't be bisexual, can it? ...CAN IT? If I have a crush on a lady, it's just a crush, right? I mean, there's the whole thing with heterosexual man crushes (by men, for men), which makes mine, what, homosexual woman crushes? I rest my case. So, wanna hear about my homosexual woman crushes? Of course you do. I'll just list names, and you tell me when to stop.

Amanda Tapping, Jorja Fox, Gina Bellman, Beth Riesgraf, the actress who plays Alison on Eureka whom I decided I like within 6 seconds of watching the show, Gina Torres, Kelli Williams, Monica Raymund, KARA THRACE Katee Sackhoff, Mary McDonnell, Amanda Tapping, Amanda Tapping, Morena Baccarin, Tricia Helfer, Jennifer Morrison, Lisa Edelstein, Jeri Ryan (but only on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays), Nana Visitor, Terry Farrell, Kate Mulgrew, Gates McFadden, Marina Sirtis, and the list goes on, and dude, how can I forget Jill Hennessy and Catherine Bell? And...

*goes on to list about a hundred more over the course of 5 hours*

....Torri Higginson, and did I mention Amanda Tapping?

And then he went down with his ship. Sorry, I'm watching the Star Trek reboot. I think I only suggested it to my parents because JMo is in it for 10 minutes at the beginning.

You know, I miss House, but I don't miss *House*. I miss the first two seasons. You know, when I cared, and when it hadn't jumped the shark so hard that the shark came home and lived with House. Which would have been more entertaining, because I like sharks. I also like Wilson. He could name the shark Wilson, because why the hell not.
