Here's to a wonderful 2009. May it be filled with more dirty sports bras and less milk.

I totally forgot about MTV's "The Paper". I really enjoyed that show. They should bring it back. Or give that bitchy editor girl her own show.

It would be better than Bromance.

I loved loved LOVED Son of Rambow. I'm so glad someone else has seen it and feels well enough for it to post it in a blog.

And yeah, RTs is a highlight of my 2008, too. That goddamned place.
