  • Did Mimi on Days of Our Lives get fake boobs? We’re just up to the bit where Philip is going to rent her half of the loft, and as she stood there in her (awful, horrible) crochet shawl, I suddenly noticed that her new (glaring, orange) huge breasts were filling half the screen. Snookums was unable to confirm (and he usually has good fake-boob-dar). Any opinions?
  • Man, Lost is soooo good. We just watched the second episode. The Snook is the King of Wild and Unsubstantiated Speculation. When the Korean woman unbuttoned her top button, he turned to me in all seriousness: “She’s going to kill him.” When Sawyer read the piece of paper and then meaningfully glanced at the hiking group, he announced: “He’s gay. You’re supposed to think he’s looking at Kate, but he’s really checking out hobbit ass.” Luckily the damn polar bear was a twist neither of us could have made up. I think we’re hooked. (Although every time they mention flying out of Sydney, I get a little more freaked out. Qantas… Qantas never crashes…)
  • Finally finished watching the second season of The Office. My heart broke. How in the world could Maria Lucas do that to Tim? She’s such an idiot! Yeah, I think I read a spoiler somewhere that they kiss in the Christmas special, but I’m worried that I read it wrong and they might not have a happy ending because that would be so, you know, hip and realistic and crap. I don’t care if it’s realistic or not. I want Dawn and Tim to hook up, dammit! So now I need to rent the DVD, I guess.

And hey, doesn’t the new Survivor start soon? And the Rob-and-Ambah season of the Race isn’t far off. It’s a good time to TiFaux.

  1. All I can say is get thee to The Office Christmas Special. So best!

    Have you heard that they’ve remade The Office for the US? I was lucky enough to catch the pilot online and now know better than to set another Season Pass on TiVo. They must have had to work hard to suck all the humor and clever bits out of the original. Ugh.

  2. *squee!!!*

    Hobbit ass! Ha! Lost is *so* fraught with teh subtext, it isn’t funny. The slashers have been insane with glee since the very first episode. Because you know that Sawyer and Sayid are harboring deep homoerotic love for one another. Just wait for the episode where Sayid practices his mad interrogation skillz. You’ll see what I mean. 😉

  3. hey – rent the xmas special ASAP (i would have made you a copy w/ the arrested dev. dvds if i would have known you needed it). it’s SOOOOO good. at least the ending is… some of the first hour is boring. not to spoil anything, but i actually cried. it was GREAT, and made up completely for the suckiness of the 2nd season.

  4. brigita – where can i see the pilot online? i met a few comedian people who are going to be on the american version at a new year’s party i was at in la. they’re not main characters, but they said it was going to be really funny. i mean, how can it not be funny? (i guess nbc did manage to f-up coupling, but…) i’m still season passing it.

  5. I don’t think it’s a spoiler to say that the airline isn’t Qantas.

  6. Nope. It’s not a spoiler, as far as I’m aware. At least, I don’t know how it could possibly be construed as one. I’ve mentioned it before, but the airline is called “Oceanic.”

  7. Yeah, I know it’s not Qantas. I was just doing my Rain Man impression. 🙂

  8. Hey Kel–The pilot was online for a brief while, but I think it’s since come down. I actually have the file (~40MB) if you’re (or anyone else is) interested.

  9. Brig – Can you IM File Transfer it to me? Might take awhile, but I’ve done it b4 w/ large files. Let me know…

  10. oh man, remember me? i just found your site again and was totally hooked by this post! the office special is all worth it. i liked the second season, and loved the first… but there’s no way you’ll be disappointed with the special. get your paws on it!

  11. Tara D? GET OUT! (Not literally, of course.) No way! I’ve been sooo missing your contributions to the site. I go back through the archives and there you are, being hilarious and all. Glad to see you seem to be doing well. And what a smokin’ pic on your new site! 🙂

  12. awww, man! you always know what to say. i’m actually trying to put my new headshot up right now… hang in there. howie doin’, i’ve missed.

  13. brigita – THANKS SO MUCH!!! i’m watching it right now. i’m not hating it too much yet, but we’ll see. i can’t believe arthur from six feet is going to be gareth. the guys at the party said the character’s a little different in this u.s. incarnation, though. which sucks, b/c i think gareth by FAR is the funniest thing about the show. ah well…

    HI TARA D!!!!!!!
