"Another Festivus Miracle!"

Today is Festivus, everyone! For those of you not familiar, here is a handy video explaining all you'll ever need to know and then some. If you need me, I'll be busy airing grievances (I have a lot of them) and participating in the feats of strength. HAPPY FESTIVUS, EVERYBODY!





I find tinsel distracting,

Mr. G Hits The Spot

If you're not watching Summer Heights High (originally from Australia, now on HBO), you really should be. In the clip below, Mr. G, drama teacher and overall megalomaniac, demonstrates his disaster drills for various different scenarios including, fires, terrorists, school shooters, and pedophiles.



This is quickly becoming one of my top favorite shows. It's hilarious, and if you don't think so, you either have no sense of humor or you're my mom. (Sorry, Mom, not that you even know how to access the internet...)

My Parade is Being Rained Upon

Hey friends. I just wanted to give a quick update and let you know that my life is slowly falling apart. My laptop power port is not working, so I have no computer to post from (this post is being done in the library). Since my computer is broken, that means I cannot take my finals on it, so I am going to have to write them, SO I am going to be slower than everyone else and my hand is going to feel arthritic when I am done...lovely. My car is also on the fritz. I pulled over in a church (eek!) parking lot yesterday and my doors locked behind me. I think it was some sort of car poltergeist because my doors do not automatically lock. So then, I had to go into the church and ask to phone a friend. I was waiting in there (since it was cold and rainy) for my brother to show up and save the day and, all of the sudden, the pastor hands me a brochure and encourages me to come to meetings in case I am an addict or know of an addict - WTF?! This is why I don't go to church...well that's not really why, but it's a good addition to all the reasons I already have.
Anyway, I am going to be taking finals for a few days, which I hopefully pass so that I can get the hell out of law school 6 months from now. I know Lex is busy, too, so there might not be too many posts between now and Christmas. So if I don't write between now and then, I hope you all have a lovely Christmas (or whatever winter holiday you choose to celebrate), and we will be writing at you again soon!

American Idle: Waiting for Season 8


Our pal Andrea is an American Idol superfan and will be our resident AI expert/recapper/correspondent here at Sooperserial. I'm not totally AI hardcore (I kind of tune out after the funny auditions), but so many people are, so we are really excited to have Andrea on board as a guest blogger and our AI go-to gal. If you, too, know some AI #1 fans, please direct them our way for all their AI info as per Andrea. Below is a little write-up she did for the upcoming season. Stay tuned for more!

xoxo,
Lex

Hello, all! This is Andrea just stopping by to let you guys know that I will be guest writing for my friends here at Sooperserial during the American Idol season this year! And if you are as obsessed with American Idol as much as I am, then you can understand my anticipation for Season 8 to start! The audition rounds are scheduled to start this January and I cannot wait!


A two night, four-hour event is scheduled for Tuesday January 13th and Wednesday January 14th at 8:00, and the audition rounds are, in my opinion, the funniest and most entertaining part of the American Idol season! I am honestly watching Fox right now just to check and see if they have started running commercials yet. Yes, I am that obsessed.


I am so excited that my friends Lauren and Lex are kind enough to allow me to share my obsession with their lovely readers. I am going to be writing weekly reviews on American Idol here on this fabulous website. And since I will be out of school and have lots of time on my hands, I plan on writing as many reviews as I possibly can! So please make sure you stop by, read my reviews and leave some comments! Just a warning…I get really, really REALLY into American Idol and foresee my articles being extremely long and very detailed. So I am sure it will be an enjoyable read for any true American Idol fan.


In my anticipation for the new season to start, I have started Googling "American Idol Season 8" for spoiler alerts. I have indeed found them! There is one particular spoiler website that I always read and they have posted names of contestants that have made it to the Hollywood rounds. It’s exciting because you can also follow the links to the potential contestants Myspace pages and YouTube videos to hear them sing and judge them for yourselves before they are judged on the show! As you all know, the auditions have already taken place by the time we watch them on television, so the contestants go about three months knowing that they have made it to Hollywood and have to stay quiet about it till the show airs. That would be extremely difficult for me to do - I would honestly tell everyone I know if I made it onto the show.


But anyway, I am extremely excited about the new season and if anyone wants to read the spoilers, they can just e-mail my friends here at Sooperserial and I can forward on the information to you. I understand that most people do not like spoilers and would instead choose to watch the show and discover what has happened but in my opinion, spoilers are great!! (Editor's note: Lex loves spoilers!)


On a final note, thank you to Lex and Lauren for allowing me to share my American Idol obsession with you lovely readers! Enjoy!


xoxo,

Andrea

This is Bowie to Bowie

"I hate listening to people's dreams. It's like flipping through a stack of photographs. If I'm not in any of them, and nobody's having sex, I just... don't care." -Dennis Reynolds, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

Last night was my first night off of cold medicine in a few nights. I had to wake up early for class today and didn't want to risk sleeping through my alarm, so I decided not to self-medicate. The medicine made me, like, go into a coma and I didn't have any dreams that I could remember. Well, maybe my brain was mad it didn't get to have it's personal picture show for a few days, so last night I had very vivid dreams. I know this is boring, but deal. I dreamed that I was a passenger in a car with three other people. The whole time I knew my seatbelt wasn't on, but I didn't want to put it on because I thought the driver would be mad that it wasn't on from the start. Eventually, I did put it on and the driver scolded me a bit. End scene.

Well today, I am driving along on my morning commute and what do I see ahead of me...a seatbelt checkpoint! I want to believe that I am a little psychic for this, but probs not. I am one of those bitches that ALWAYS wears her seatbelt and hardcore yells at my passengers if they don't. If I was relaxed about wearing it and then decided to wear it today only because of my dream, I would totally start working for the psychic hotline. But alas, I am just going to go ahead and take this as a coincidence.


In other news, I finally got my computer up and running again yesterday. My A/C adapter broke and I had to order a new one. An hour after I got it to work, our internet stopped working. There's really nothing we can do to fix it since we steal it haha. We pay for our own internet, but haven't set up a router, so we are going to have to do that ASAP. I need to read all the shit that's on the web or I can't function. I usually Wikipedia things I don't know about, like at least 5 times a day. I love having information right there available to me.
Anyway, that is basically what is going on with my life - I'm dreaming and stealing. Either Lex or I will be doing a Circus review soon. Maybe we can both do one since one of us (her) is a die-hard fan and one of us is a little more unbiased.
Enjoy your weekend, everyone!

Lauren

Birthday Baby, One More Time


Just wanted to wish a happy 27th birthday to my favorite former train wreck, Britney Jean Spears. Additionally, her new album, Circus, was released today.


Come March, I'll be spending my birthday with her as well! I can't wait! Happy Birthday, Brit!
