milo, posh and snape

i guess i owe fergie an apology. she doesn't completely suck. just mostly. since i am nursing scarlett 32 hours a day, i seem to have a lot more time for reading and tv. this morning i watched some of vh1's video countdown and i discovered that the song "big girls don't cry " was sung by her. well, you could have knocked my socks off. this song is surprisingly unlike the rest of the insipid and vacuous "music" she "sings". "my humps" is about as awful and mind-numbing as you can get. and "fergalicious"? how original. no, that is nothing like "bootylicious". but that is another post for another day.

anywhoo, i watched the entire "big girls don't cry" and imagine my surprise when i realized that jess(milo ventimiglia) from the gilmore girls plays that heavily tatooed, thuggy boyfriend in her video. and he actually looked like an adult. i never thought that he looked old enough to drive on GG.

they both look perfect for each other. unwashed, disgruntled truck stop employees. i think his neck tatoo really enhances her ghetto fabulous lee press on nails. i hope his associations with fergie don't ruin things for him on "heroes". i hear that is a great show. wouldn't know personally.

that brings me to my next point: what happened to jess on GG? why didn't rory fight for that relationship? i stopped watching GG this past season because the whole luke/lorelai stuff got ridiculous, but i always wanted jess to come back. he was always my favorite. dean was a dumb, lamesauce loser that worked at a grocery store and logan was fun for a while because he was rich, but he eventually got old too. jess wore all black and slouched and brooded and read literature. every girl wants a wounded soul to fix, right?


MAJOR! that is my new catch phrase thanks to posh spice!

last night i watched victoria beckham: coming to america. can i confess that i really enjoyed that guilty pleasure? and i was pleasantly surprised by her personality. she has one! she only looks mindless. she seemed like a nice enough person. and if she can pretend to be a nice person in LA, then she might just have an acting career after all! and i have always liked the name victoria. and the haircut is killer. too bad i am not that brave to sport it myself. but, i may be busting out the high heels more often. she's a mom or should i say mum of three and she wears them all the time! i have 2 kids so i figure i will be the posh spice of montgomery, alabama. i just need to think of a catchy nickname. let's all brainstorm.


finally, to my legions of readers that are harry potter fans, i really hope snape is a good guy. he and neville longbottom are my two favourites. i just can't believe that snape killed dumbledore just for killings sake. there has to be a good reason. perhaps someday i will even read the books!

ok, so even though my husband watches it i never realized that was "jess" on heroes. i don't like him on heroes or GG, i hated his crc on GG. I am much more into Logan. I also stopped watching GG this season, partly for the ridiculousness, partly b/c I have meetings that night, and I can't believe I am admitting this publicly but I don't have Tivo- which I am mocked for.
And you better not have just given away the ending to the Potter movie that I am going to see tomorrow. Oh yes, at 9:00 in the morning, for free, thanks to Joel's coworker's dentist...makes perfect sense right? A private viewing for all of his fave patients and their random friends? I should tell my dad. Yes, I have read (ok listened) to all the books, but that was so long ago-
Last thought- "Poppy Spice" as in popcorn spice (only you will get that I hope)

poppy spice! that is hilarious! i totally get it!
and i don't have tivo either. tell them to mock me too. i also didn't grow up with cable. imagine that!
and my love for snape has nothing to do with the most recent potter movie. it blossomed with movie #1 and has just grown from there with each subsequent film.

I don't think I even associated "jess" on GG with Heroes until you posted that picture. I knew I knew him from somewhere!!

And Rob and I got sucked into Victoria Beckham also and were surprised that she was smarter than she appears. A little snooty in some instances but surprisingly likeable! Must be nice to have a makeup and hair stylist around at all times though . . .

I too watched the Victoria Beckman special as a guilty pleasure. I had never heard her or her husband speak until watching the show. I was pleasantly surprised that she seemed nice and intelligent but think David Beckman has kinda of a high voice for a man.

As far as Snape goes, I have read book 7 already and love the actor that plays him in the movies. He does such a great job. Did you know he is really 61 years old? I learned that reading a magazine recently.

I can't stand Fergie either and I was shocked when I found out that she sung that song!
