Weekly Wrap-Up

Fucking finally, right?

What we loved:
Television
Chuck:

amelie: CHUCK. A million, trillion, billionty times, I love Chuck. But more important than my love of Chuck is the fact that Casey loves Chuck (we already knew that Sarah loves Chuck. That’s not news.) He still hates being Team Chuck’s little fat kid, and I think that’s adorable. I want a Casey in my life. I have a feeling he’d kill spiders for me in a second.

kegger: CHUCK CHUCK CHUCK CHUCK!  I’m going to be so pissed if this show is cancelled.  And I flipping LOVE Casey and Awesome.  And Chuck.  And Sarah.  And hell.  Everyone else, too.  I could go on for about 15 minutes about Chuck, but I’m going to stop now. (Ahem.  If you haven’t seen Chuck yet, you should totally click on one of the bazillion hyperlinks I added and watch a few dozen episodes.)

The Office:
amelie:
Oh, The Office, how I’ve missed you. I haven’t really been feeling the love this season, but last night was brilliant: the return of awesome, competent Jim; Charles getting schooled in the ways of Dwight; the “idiot” ringtone; Ryan not being a total douchebag asshole…I could go on. But I won’t.

kegger: I loved Jim in this episode.  And yay, Charles is gone!  Finally!  I think.  And so awesome that instead of taking the $60,000, Michael got all of their jobs back.  And I hope Ryan keeps his “totally natural” blonde hair for a while, because every time I see it, it makes me giggle. Although I do have to say, I STILL don’t buy Angela crushing on Charles. I just don’t see it.

Party Down:

kegger: Okay, so I admit that I haven’t seen this week’s episode of Party Down yet, but I don’t care.  I flipping love this show, and if you don’t have Starz, you should totally watch it on Netflix.  The pilot ep was just okay.  After that, the show turned into all kinds of awesome.

amelie: I’m a week or so behind on Party Down, but I have loved every episode I’ve seen so far. Why aren’t you watching it?

Music

kegger: Missy Higgins–Okay, so the CD isn’t exactly new, but I just kind of discovered it on my iPod this week, and it’s mellow and great.  My two favorite songs are “Forgive Me” and “Warm Whispers.”

amelie: The Lonely Island–I’ve had Incredibad for a couple of weeks, and I still love it. It’s dirty and funny and ridiculous. My new favorite thing is to drive with the windows down and blast “I’m On a Boat” as loud as I can take it.

kegger: I’m on a boat, mothafucka!

amelie: Don’t you ever forget!

Books

kegger: I’m in a YA phase right now for some reason.  Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins is definitely worth a read.  Based on the description on the inside flap, I was just, meh.  But then I read it and loved it.  I’m looking forward to the sequel.

amelie: I’m not reading anything worth talking about, so moving on.

What we hated:

Television:

amelie: NBC is On Notice for even considering canceling Chuck. I’m still so pissed at ABC for the Pushing Daisies fiasco that I refuse to watch Castle (or maybe I just forget that it’s on because my Mondays are already stacked with awesome shows. I’ll never tell.) Consider this a pre-empitive hate, which I am more than willing to turn into a love if NBC nuts up and does the right thing.

Movies:

kegger:House“–Whatever you do, don’t rent this.  It’s awful.  It’s horrible.  It can’t decide what it wants to be.  Does it want to be all creepy, or mystery-like, or ghosty, or WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON???!!!!  I mean… seriously.  Don’t watch it.  I was actually paying attention, and I couldn’t figure out what was going on.  I was all like, “Huh?  Why is chick like, drowning under a slab of ice in a closet?!?” and stuff.  Not to mention, you really shouldn’t name your movie House when there’s already a popular show named House.  AND, can I just say that movies really need to work on getting the South right?  The architecture for that house was so off.  And so were their accents.  Just because we’re from the South doesn’t mean we’re creepy inbred rednecks, y’all.  And if we WERE creepy inbred rednecks, we’d be living in trailer parks.  Not in mansions.  Maybe you should actually, I don’t know, VISIT Montgomery, Alabama and see what it’s actually like there before you start making movies about it.

amelie: Creepy Inbred Rednecks is so the name of my imaginary band. I wasn’t even aware this was a movie until you started griping about how much it sucks. No movies to hate on this week for me. Ooh–can I hate on the 30 seconds of “Twilight” you made me watch? Because I really hated it.

kegger: You can count the 30 seconds of “Twilight” that I made you watch.  They really were the worst 30 seconds of the entire show.  He was supposed to look like he wanted to EAT her (dirty!) when he first smelled her.  Not like he wanted to vomit.

amelie: Heh. Eat her.

Pee Ess: I have edited this stupid thing forty bajillion times, and the size is still all wonky. I call shenanigans. Sorry.

Twilight Movie Review

I’m probably going to go easy on the movie–mostly because I didn’t expect much from it to begin with, and therefore, I wasn’t disappointed with it. [amelie: Whereas I, had I gone to see it, would rip it to shreds because that’s fun and I’m evil.]

Basically, the movie is comparable to the book.  [amelie: so it’s really boring and filled with creepy relationships? Good to know.] Don’t get me wrong, I’m a closet fan of the book, [amelie: “closet fan” my ass. That’s like saying I’m a closet fan of The Office. You love it and you know you love it and I know you love it.] [kegger: I’m a closet fan.  Most people know I’ve READ the book.  Most don’t know I LOVED the book.  And the only person I really talk about the book to is you, amelie.] but when you look at it–and I mean HONESTLY look at it (for you fangirls out there that think Stephenie Meyer can do no wrong)–it’s not that well written, it’s not that exciting, and there really isn’t much of a plot [amelie: Welcome to the darkside. We know good books here].  Remember, this is coming from someone who LOVES the book even though I can’t understand why.  And while I’m an Edward fan, when you think about it, he’s kind of creepy.  1.  He’s freaking 100 and he’s in love with a 17 year old.  2.  He’s kind of a stalker–watching Bella while she’s sleeping and following her to Port Angeles and all.  [amelie: “kind of” a stalker? KIND OF? I just…he…and then she…No. This is not my review, so I’mma shut up now.] So really, with a book like Twilight, you can’t expect an Oscar winning movie, right?

Having said that, I wasn’t disappointed in the movie.  It’s exactly what I expected it to be.

Names that rival Renesmee

I’m not sure how it came up, but amelie and I were (as usual) e-mailing each other back and forth instead of working, and we started coming up with names that were as bad as “Renesmee.” Mostly by putting two random names together and seeing what we could come up with. Here’s what we’ve got so far.

  1. Libricia (Libby & Patricia)
  2. Wesoug (Wesley & Doug)
  3. Horothy (Horace & Timothy)
  4. Vanargaret (Vanessa & Margaret)
  5. Elizalotte (Elizabeth & Charlotte)
  6. Herboody, Woodbert,Bertoody, Wooher, Bertwood (Herbert & Woody)–they were too good, we couldn’t pick just one!
  7. Pickenerzie (Piper & Mackenzie)
  8. Euner (Abner & Eugene)
  9. Jubarabudy (Judy & Barbara)
  10. Pelvin (Peter & Melvin)

Anyone care to add more??!

I have a confession to make…

I’m secretly a little bit obsessed with the Twilight books. amelie knows this. [amelie: Shyeah, she does.] One or two other people know this. But mostly, I pretty much stay in the closet about the whole thing. [amelie: So, you’re saying your gay for Twilight? I’m sorry. That was inappropriate. Snerk.] [kegger: Hee!] Mainly because I’m NOT a teenybopper fan girl. I’m 26. (I also am most definitely NOT one of those Twilight Mom weirdos. I’ve got no problem with being a fan, but they’re kind of overkill.) Anyway, though.

I’ve been pretty excited about Breaking Dawn coming out. Ask amelie. [amelie: She’s been pretty excited about Breaking Dawn coming out.] I’ve been counting the days until I could finally find out what would happen at the end of the book. So I picked the book up on Saturday and was really excited about reading it. I love the characters Stephenie Meyer has invented. They’ve sucked me in, and I enjoy reading about them even though the books are definitely flawed.

And… geeze. How do I say this without being rude? Oh, screw it. Stephenie Meyer was obviously on crack while she was writing Breaking Dawn. [amelie: Word.]

I don’t even know where to start when talking about how awful the book was. I will say this. I liked it better than the final Harry Potter book. (I know amelie disagrees with me on that one.) [amelie: Aw, kegs, you know me so well.] That’s the only good thing I can say about it, though. And Bella got turned into a vamp and ended up with Edward. [amelie: Dude–spoiler!] [kegger: Hee. Oops.] Those are the only good things. But how they came about didn’t even make the good parts good, if that makes sense.

So, below, I’ve complied a list of things about the book that pissed me off. (Warning, there will most definitely be spoilers.) [*amelie does the jazz hands of yay spoilers*]
