So, I've been taking random photos on my camera (including the Law & Order mug of lost awesomeness). I fully intend to share them all with my beloved flist, but I think there's one that deserves its own post.

My old cassette collection! Finding this was like happening upon lost artifacts. I don't even remember buying half of these; I'm pretty sure I stole a bunch of them from an elementary school friend. Ahhh, memories.

  • 702 - No Doubt
  • Tony Braxton - Secrets
  • Janet Jackson - Janet
  • MTV - Party To Go Vol. 3
  • Salt N' Pepa - A Salt with a Deadly Pepa
  • Salt n' Pepa - Blacks' Magic
  • U2 - Pop

Clearly, I had a very specific taste in music as a kid. I was a ghetto flower, lol. There are also a few mixtapes in there. I'd have to bring them out to my car to listen to them, because there aren't any tape players in the house.

I am LOLing over this discovery.

There are few things I love more than seeing my favorite celebrities on Sesame Street. Stephen Colbert in Sesame Street's All-Star Alphabet? Yes, please! (Actually, I already have it, so empty that shopping cart!) (And, no, it's not actually mine, it's my nephew's.) (Stop looking at me like that.) I didn't think it could get any better than Tina Fey's cameo as a Book-a-neer in this season's premiere. It turns out I was wrong. Very very wrong.

Oh my fuck.

Behold my icon, for it is kittens and puppies and unicorn magic all in one. I luff you, Kenneth! ♥

Speaking of icons, I made some! Unlike most of the crap I schlock out to you all (with love, of course), I kind of put some effort into these. I even included text! I NEVER USE TEXT. :O

The rest are here for all interested parties. :D

John Krasinski and Steve Carell together at a hockey game is the most adorable thing ever, y/y? AND YOU KNOW THEY WERE THERE FOR THE BRUINS. WHAT UP, LOCAL BOYS?!

(Have I ever mentioned my theory about John's time at Brown? Well, he was at Brown the same time I was in high school, 1999-2002, and I had a friend whose mom lived in the College Hill section of Providence. Where Brown is. I was there A LOT and I'm convinced that I've probably stepped on a piece of gum he spit on the sidewalk or was, like, two aisles down from him at the Store 24 on Thayer Street. I don't know why I think about this shit, but I do. And I'm crazy.)

I still have to make my TV post but all of the effort it would take to type it all out is being wasted on this nonsensical post. Oops? Maybe tomorrow.

Did you know there's a 2008 The Office DVD Wall Calendar? It's an 18-month wall calender that comes with a DVD that features desktop wallpaper versions of each month. (You can see visuals here.) It shouldn't surprise any of you that I bought it without having to think about it. It's like when you drive home from work and can't remember getting from Point A to Point B. How did I get home? Why is my credit card in my hand?

This is almost as joyous a moment as finding The Christmas Toy on VHS for a dollar at some yard sale I went to today. That's my absolute favorite Christmas movie EVER.

According to Yahoo!News:

Paddington Bear, a teddy in a duffle coat who loves marmalade sandwiches and has impeccable manners, is the latest character from a children's book to head for Hollywood aiming at movie stardom.

Dear Hollywood - Don't screw the pooch on this, a-wipes! Paddington Bear was my childhood literary hero. (He was part of a trifecta of illustrated idols, along with Lyle Lyle the Crocodile and Madeline.) I'm cringing at the "live-action family comedy" description. A CGI'd Paddington makes me want to cry. I'm sad that two-dimensional animation is now seemingly defunct. Thanks a lot, Toy Story! (Kidding. I loves me some Toy Story.)

John Krasinski and I have something in common, y'all.
There were so many great books I read growing up. I was always a HUGE fan of all things Roald Dahl. Every book from James and the Giant Peach to The BFG to The Witches, nobody wrote more imaginative stories for kids. These worlds he created had the nonsensical appeal of Dr. Seuss, while at the same time, the characters were all written with wonderful complexities and enormous heart. It was a feast for any imagination! And with so many great books, short stories and poems to choose from, you could go on an adventure any day of the week!

I'm not surprised he's a Roald Dahl fan. I admit it makes me melt a little that we enjoyed the same books as kids. I was a Matilda girl myself (Miss Honey! ♥) but The BFG is another favorite. Actually, I think I most favored The Vicar of Nibbleswicke. I remember being quite impressed with myself when I was the only one in my fourth grade class who could pronounce the title of the book.
