Me: Wesley Snipes could solve this problem ASAP
JS: wesley snipes will take over eric schmidt
Oh my goodness. Not only is L&O:UK pretty solid crime procedural, but I think Martha Jones and Lee Adama might hook up!
Time for email catch-up and “Law & Order UK,” starring Lee Adama and Martha Jones. Geektastic! (Though I don’t have high hopes for quality.)
Writing about cars. First impulse: “need to look up bad car puns to incorporate.” Fighting said impulse now.
Seeking an actress (early 30s) who is free Saturday to perform in an informal “theater jam” fundraiser. Let me know — should be fun!

Great Friday night spent rocking out with Taco!!? Now I do yoga and write play and make t-shirt and get haircut and eat dinner and paarty.
Speaking of Disneyland — just tried to use the word innovention in today’s NTVS review. Turns out that is not a real word.
Ok, I now know of at least five people in the last 2 months who have done the “Free on Your Birthday” Disneyland deal. BEST PROMOTION EVER.

Heidi Klum Makes Spiked Heel Look Good « NewTeeVee →
In which I flat-out admit that I want to be Heidi Klum when I grow up. Fun fact: the copy-editor tweaked one parenthetical from (who gets to have sex with Seal on a regular basis) to (who just happens to be married to Seal). I definitely see her point. But dude, Seal.

Thx for the restaurant recs, y’all. Dinner has been rescheduled, but leaning towards Kitchen 24. So many good places in that area, though!
Tonight, I’d like to try a new restaurant in the Cahuenga area (prior to movie tiem at the Arclight). Anyone got a recommendation?
Thank you, rain, for justifying my decision to stay inside all day and read, answer email, write, and play Rock Band.
