Travelogue: NYC )

Travelogue: Colbert )

Still not ready to talk about Book 7 - I think I want to get through another reread listen before I put words to binary.

Hope you all had a great week and are enjoying yer weekends. :)
quidditchgrrl: (helen keller was a communist!)
Is it just me, or is Colbert's guest tonight kinda batshit insane?

9/11 was the fault of the media! "Blue America" made bin Laden the man he is today!

And here I thought that the Democrats were unfocused and ineffective?

Won't someone think of the jihadis children?

FOR THE LOVE OF PETE, thank you Stephen, for nailing this guy.
quidditchgrrl: (Crazy Colbert laughter!)
Is it me or is Stephen a little frisky tonight? Or maybe I've been reading too much Jon/Stephen/Anderson/Olbermann fic. *evil grin*

And Sam Bee should definitely keep the side part - it makes her look 1000x better!

Nothing else to report.

Hope you all are doing well! :)
quidditchgrrl: (Crazy Colbert laughter!)
OMG, someone cap that GQ cover manip!

Jay-Z as Stephen's new best friend...priceless.
quidditchgrrl: (Become the media)
Gah. Somehow I knew I'd be up at 4:30am on Election Day. Pah.

But there is a bag of Hallyween candy (anniversary present!), so I am at least sugar-fueled.

The president's last minute desperation is amusing to me. I'm trying to be kind to those who are just now interpreting the truthiness and trying to escape the sucking moral vacuum that is the Republican party/neoconservative movement.

However, I'm worried that an overwhelming victory by the Dems will cause a free-for-all, like what happened with the 1994 Republican takeback of Congress. That seems to have turned out badly. [livejournal.com profile] photosinesis, you're killing me.

I took a "which candidate shares your values" quiz for governor, and, not surprisingly, none of the candidates was a clear winner. Still voting for Strickland. I feel vaguely dirty. :\

By the looks of things in the blogosphere, I missed awesome eps of TDS/TCR (due to aforementioned anniversary...celebrations). Pout.

I also want to watch Studio 60, but alas, I work Monday nights. Anyone willing to help me get started?

Sleep would be really fine right about now.
quidditchgrrl: (Jon is all a-squee)
Please to be skipping this if you're not interested in TDS/OSU.

I'm so impressed - they have really done their research. Loved the Chillicothe reference (even though they were standing in front of the Bob Evans on Olentangy River Road).

And John Oliver! I really am going to camp out on Wednesday for standby.

Excuse me, but WHY are they running Jack in the Box commericals? There's no Jack in the Box in Ohio! >:O It's just cruel.

Now for Colbert versus Manilow, my smutty Pride and Prejudice fanfic (Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife) and bed.

ETA: Did Stephen shave his hands again?!? *cries*
quidditchgrrl: (Jon is all a-squee)
I had so much FUUUUUUUNNNN today. Fun has been sorely lacking in my life of late. And FUUUUUUUUNNNN non-existent.

Today was the Thurber House honors for their Best American Humor 2005 award winner, the writers of America (the Book) - Jon Stewart, Ben Karlin, and David Javerbaum. I went to their reading, which was funny and excellent.

Jon is more off-the-cuff than I expected. Each of them read a piece from the book, and Jon did a segment with Professor Stanley K. Schultz, who contributed entries for the Teacher's Edition of the book.

I asked a couple of questions (for which Jon made fun of my verbosity): To Ben and DJ about The Colbert Report and whether they were surprised at how successful it has become (they are, and happy about it - Ben said Stephen was leaving TDS anyway???)

For Jon, I mentioned the article and asked him what he thought of his critics' opinions that his fan base gets all of their news from a fake news show. He said that he doesn't think that's true at all - if the people watching didn't follow any other news, the show would be like Charlie Brown's teacher talking - and that he (Jon) isn't a megalomaniac.

My faith in watching TDS has been affirmed - they really do GET IT. :) Ben Karlin is so cute, I love him.

Then, the OSU kick-off event )

I'm considering taking off work on Thursday to go and see Sacha Baron Cohen, who's going to be here as Borat. Or not.
quidditchgrrl: (Ed loves the homometer)

Sometimes I get the feeling that Fan Service Monday is just an excuse for Jon and Stephen to pretend that they're not really getting it on.

*snerk*

quidditchgrrl: (Crazy Colbert laughter!)
Meh. Randomosity.

1. I might get to sleep in tomorrow! We're going into month 4 of sharing my car, and god-DAMN is it inconvenient. The car is still not fixed yet, who knows why (as Honeybunch ponied up $750 to buy a transmission, and both tranny and car are with the mechanic). But Honeybunch will be working in the office tomorrow, so I might drop him off at work, leaving me free to be home more than 3 hours in a day. \o/

2. Ooh, they just showed headshots of Ahmadnejad and Dubya side-by-side on TDS, and they look alike! Creeeeepy. Squinty, shifty eyes on both of them.

3. TMI Girly Stuff. )

4. Lost. Well. All I can say is that I hope they have their plot together. Eko is awesome.

5. Back in Black! W00t! I <3 Lewis. And Billy Connolly! I love The Daily Show!

6. Mount of Olives chai tea makes the best ice tea ever. :-9

7. I've gained 6 pounds. :O Not cool. Must bike 20 miles every weekend, work out 3x/week and quit eating! Bought some Dexatrim Max today. It doesn't work. :(

8. I want to hug the whole world. *hug*

9. I'm finding it very hard to get off the PC at 11pm and watch TDS and TCR on the couch. Last night was torture - so much with the gay! I was dying to cruise the threads, but resisted. Lo, I am Xena!

10. When A Stranger Calls = the lamest movie ever. Gah.

11. Scottish accent = teh sex. Jon agrees. :>
quidditchgrrl: (Stephen Goes to Washington)
I wanted to go to bed early last night. I've been too worried and too amped to sleep. *sigh*

I did manage to tear myself away from the computer and sit on the couch to watch TDS/TCR, because I felt like I needed to see them giggling. I wasn't disappointed!

Is it just me, or was last night the first time Stephen has ever kissed a woman on-screen?! Still, hot. (That wasn't his wife, right? Lucky, lucky girl.)

But now, I am le tired. And I can't have a nap.

Writing yet another re-training document for an employee who is about as useful as overcooked spaghetti. The most frustrating part? That *I* did this part of his training, but he has completely forgotten everything he's learned in the last two months. It's like he has short-term memory loss; every day is like his first day on the job. But we can't just let him go, oh no! We have to retrain him for the 6483651206th time. *headdesk*
quidditchgrrl: (Fangirly joy)
Strangers With Candy Trailer, w00t! June 28 (finally)! *pathetically excited*

And, TAD was on Cobert this week! *loves on Paul*

Continuing with the slashiness, I read a hot one-shot today: Headlines by [livejournal.com profile] dramaphile. It's Harry/Colin, which is certainly not a pairing that I would pick up on a whim. But it's, well, yeah. Hot. Read, perv, review. Repeat as necessary.

Ta, y'all. Daily Show is on!
quidditchgrrl: (It's all over save the giggling)
[livejournal.com profile] nmalfoy is an evil, evil woman.

Who knew that an innocent question could cause me to think really, really nasty thoughts about Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.

Stephen making filthy hand gestures and grabbing his crotch is SO NOT HELPING.

Having Paul on the show SO NOT HELPING STEPHEN. Nutz cola. *combusts*

:D
quidditchgrrl: (O.o)
Lots of things going on with my friends list today!

Happy dance of joy for:
[livejournal.com profile] eibbil_libbie, who got a new job!
[livejournal.com profile] hermorrine, who is now insulin-free (I will try not to feel completely jealous about that)

Major hugs and loff to:
[livejournal.com profile] courtney_beth, who is having much stress
[livejournal.com profile] singtoangels, who needs the gods of car karma to shine down on her
[livejournal.com profile] nsmom
[livejournal.com profile] megome, who's lost a friend
[livejournal.com profile] heidi8, hella busy for the next few weeks!

Virtual chicken soup & NyQuil to:
[livejournal.com profile] madlori
[livejournal.com profile] claireyfairy1
[livejournal.com profile] likebunnies, though a shot of Imitrex might work better
[livejournal.com profile] redblaze

Why, oh why no new Daily Show or Colbert Report? :-(( I am missing 3/4 of my TV watching!

So, how are YOU doing?
quidditchgrrl: (O.o)
Phew. This has been the week of a thousand cuts, I swear it.

From the OMGWTFCAR files: This is no way to regain your library privileges

In the random observation of Stephen Colbert: he's either shaved or bleached the hair on his hands. It's a weird thing to notice, but I like hair. Gives a body character. How can I entertain strange fantasies without the visual stimulation required?! :B

Also, I broke down and bought a candle warmer. Well, two. One looks like a hotplate, for smaller candles. The second is big and made for Yankee-style candles. It's like a canister, and the entire cylinder heats up and liquifies the wax. No flame, no drips, and no uneven burning. It is AWESOME. Our entire house smells SO good, even two hours after turning the warmer off. Totally worth the $19.99 + tax.

Spinning has totally taken over my life again. Grammys? Lost? (Yeah, right. I'll be watching it tomorrow before I go into work.) The only drawback is that it makes me ravenous and I have to fight not to chow down everything in sight. Kind of defeats the purpose of exercising. Bad form, body.
quidditchgrrl: (War Isn't Trendy)
Oh God, is Alan Dershowitz actually saying we should pre-emptively strike against Iran?

Yes, that worked out SO WELL last time we did that. -.-

ETA: James Woollsey, you are a liar, sir.
quidditchgrrl: (Listen to Stephen Colbert America!)
Oh my God. Best Word ever.
quidditchgrrl: (I'm wagging my finger at you!)
I'm not a lawyer. But Samuel Alito should be made to answer a couple of questions:

1. Do you believe in a woman's right to choose? YES or NO, Mr. Alito!

2. Do you think the president should be allowed to break the law? YES or NO, Mr. Alito!

3. Would you slap the shit out of Ted Kennedy if you met up in the World Gym locker room? YES or...oh, all right then. :D

God DAMN it, I hate that guy. What a turncoat, and he's gonna sit on the Supreme Court.

Ladies, get ready to have your uterus declared state property.

Ken Miller totally pwned on The Colbert Report tonight - score another for Science! :D

In other news, karma smiles on me yet again! Read more... )
quidditchgrrl: (No Way!  Uh-huh!)
Watching The Colbert Report. Anderson Cooper SO GAY. That laugh is the CUTEST THING EVER.

And his hands are shaking. Aw!

I made peanut butter cookies tonight to start my ill thought out holiday gift giving. Ah, the joys of being too cash-strapped to buy presents. Tomorrow will be macaroons, then gingersnaps, then fudge. Sugar cookies will be last. I hope the oven will hold out long enough. Yeargh.
quidditchgrrl: (Jon pwns j00!)
Awake and aware tonight after an entire weekend of insomnia. Damn it, I need to sleep! Having to wait for The Daily Show and The Colbert Report only makes it worse.

I had a realization about my recent addiction to TDS and TCR )

Honeybunch knocked over my fung shui candles. They're all out of sync. He is spatially challenged. :P
