1 PALEYFEST GALORE - OMG y’all. I officially love Paleyfest. It’s going to be a part of my life now, every March. Obviously I love TV. And being in the city where people eat, sleep, and breathe TV … yes. Sign me up!
This time around I was able to go to both The Mindy Project and New Girl’s Paley events. Both featured exclusive sneak previews of episodes that haven’t even aired yet and Q&A panels with the cast and creators. Lemme just say, the newest episode of New Girl (I believe they changed the title from “Quick Hardening Caulk” to “Guys Night” … ) is such a great episode. And the paneszl questions were great.
Jake Johnson did the awkward moonwalk for us. And he sang the show’s theme song. Ike Barinholtz showed us his newest ink for an upcoming episode and did some mad impressions of Chris Messina (“mushroom, mushroom, mushroom …”).
And well. We got a chance to meet the cast of The Mindy Project (they all stayed to sign autographs and took pictures with us) but there was no chance with the cast of New Girl. It was a PACKED HOUSE and they scampered off the stage right quick.
But overall - Paleyfest is a win.
2 JT HOSTED SNL THIS WEEKEND & IT WAS HILARIOUS - I don’t know what it is but SNL has been coming back strong lately. I’ve literally laughed out loud a lot these past few weeks, but this episode is just amazing. Justin Timberlake is SO FUNNY. And to think, it’s his 5th time hosting the show. The whole opening monologue was sheer perfection.
Not to mention the return of Andy Samberg + JT 90’s duo (do they have a name?) and the “bring it on down to [vegan]ville” sketch. Not to mention the classic Two Wild & Crazy Guys and the 3 amigos! What?!
Yes. Amazing episode..
3 WORK IN PROGRESS: REDECORATING TRES DUDES - In a non-television related event, we are currently in redecoration mode here at Tres Dudes. I have projects and visions in mind … it’s the getting things actually done and within budget that is a concern.
[BTW - We call our apartment Tres Dudes because when we moved in the 3 roommates were Joanne, Krissy, and Andrea but we all go by guy names - Jo, Kris, and Andi. Ergo, Tres Dudes. But now that Krissy moved out and Katie moved in, the name sticks. We just haven’t figured a name for Katie yet.].
Anyways. The entertainment area has been re-situated. And I have this massive hollow door that needs to be spray painted with chalk paint. And of course, artwork. We need artwork on the wall. I’m thinking something along the lines of this (photo taken a local J.Crew):.
4 JKL IS TO ME WHAT HARRIS IS TO AZIZ ANSARI - Have any of y’all ever watched Aziz Ansari’s stand up comedy? It’s hilarious (not exactly clean … but hilarious). Well, Aziz has this cousin named Harris that he loves to share stories about.
And well, I’ve become that person. I have this cousin who is 12 years old who just happens to have an Instagram account. And dude - he comes up with the FUNNIEST stuff. I’ve screenshotting away here.
I’m aware that’s not really a word, oh well.
Seriously though - check it:.
*To my family, I post this in absolute love. And believe me, if I were a standup comedian there would be a LOT of stories of each one of us. I poke fun because I love you.*
5 MY BEST FRIEND IS NOW A NEW MOM - You guys! One of my best friends just became a mom. Well, it’s a package deal. Billiam and Christina became parents! Introducing little Issabella. So so so precious.
