October 18 10

I’m not even sure what I am wearing today. I could be wearing Emily’s jeans for all I know. And it’s possible that my cardigan belongs to my husband. It’s long. Maybe too long, which is good, I guess, because my jeans are too tight, because they likely belong to a fourth grader. I haven’t lost my damn mind.

Well, maybe I have.

You see…

THIS is my closet right now.

We stripped down the closet “solution” that was in there before, because that was a solution that was working for NO ONE. And my husband, god bless him, is rebuilding the space. It’s massive, actually, which is nice…because it means I will have 9.5 feet x 6.5 feet of hanging space and shelving and baskets (oh, how I love me some baskets!). But for now…I have this.

And that’s only, um, about 1/8 of the pileage that I have going on in my bedroom right now.

And because I enjoy messing around with my baby-loving children, I told them that we cleaned out the closet to make room for the new baby. Emily was a bit skeptical, and worried that said baby was going to be living in a room without windows and where in the heck was I going to put all of my shoes, OMG?!?!? (She gets it, that one) but Isabella and Josh started celebrating and naming their new sibling. “How about Buddy, like the Cake Boss?” Yes, Isabella. How about that?

And because I am stressing about this whole not-having-anywhere-to-put-my-clothing debacle…and of course, it’s FASHION WEEK this week, which is the very worst time of the entire year to not have access to my clothing…I convinced my husband that it’s high time that he take me to see The Social Network, the movie I have been dying to see because of a) my love of all thinks geekery and b) my love of all things Jesse Eisenberg and his hoodie-rocking ways.

And behold. It was FANTASTIC. And there were many, many hoodies.


(Also, did you happen to notice that the Vinklevoss twins have the EXACT same voice as Jon Hamm. It was both sexy and creepy all at the same time.)

(Also, did you know that the TWINS were played by two people who are not even related – Armie Hammer and Josh Pence – and then Fincher pulled a Benjamin Button and they acted out the scenes together and then switched places and then reshot the scenes. Then he digitally grafted Hammer’s head onto Pence’s body. Which is just creepy.)

Honestly, though, I get that it was a work of fiction that was based on The Facebook story and that much of the story was told with the Eduardo Saverin bias and that Mark Zuckerberg was probably not as assy in his weeding out of his business partner, and that his business partner didn’t come through the way he was supposed to. It doesn’t take much more than a quick trip to google to realize that the movie is riddled with inaccuracies. So, it’s probably true that Zuckerberg is not the asshole the movie makes him out to be, but, I don’t know, Jesse Eisenberg does a fantastic job making Zuckerberg both completely likable and completely unlikable at the exact same time. And who really knows what sort of contributions Napster wunderkind Sean Parker actually had to the whole facebook story…other than, you know, removing the THE.

So, yes, a work of fiction.

But a bloody ridiculously good work of it.

Now if only I could find any of my hoodies…

  2. I saw it, loved it. I am now in LOVE with Armie Hammer, he is HOT. I do not see what you see in Jesse at all. You are funny.

  3. I found a couple of super saver passes for our movie theatre and I let the teenager have them so she could go see this movie instead with a friend.

    She was so excited and told me “OMG Mom you HAVE to see this movie it is AWESOME!” Gee thanks. Here’s hoping I uncover more super saver passes to be able to see it.

  4. Did you see this?
    I haven’t seen it because I can’t get past the fact that nobody did their research enough to know that Hassidim with payos do NOT have Jew-fros.

  5. …and you see, I am DYING to see that movie… Jewish inaccuracies and all. heh.

  6. I still think Mark Zuckerberg is a douche. I haven’t seen the movie yet.

    But whatever, he’s a rich douche.

    Comment by Kristabella on October 18, 2010
  7. Just curious why you think he’s a douche. He totally might be,and it wouldn’t surprise me if he was…but how do you know? He may just be a really socially awkward guy, yanno?

  8. You might not like Mark Zuckerberg but he is helping out big time with the school system in Newark. Perhaps some of his fellow millionaires will follow suit.

  9. Suzi, that’s exactly what I’m saying…I have no idea what he’s really like at all.

  10. I REALLY dig Jesse Eisenberg. And not just because he looks sexy in whatever he’s wearing, either, though I’m totally with you on the hoodies. He’s such an awesome actor, and I’m so psyched to see him bound above and beyond Adventureland. (And Zombieland, though how much do I adore that movie? SO much. And right now I’m giggling that his character actually takes a jab at Facebook in Zombieland, talking about now no more inane status updates = the best part about Z-land.)

  11. Hmm, that “now” was supposed to be “how.” Whoops!

  12. I LOVED Zombieland.
    Now we’ll have to go see this movie too.

  13. We enlarged our closet a few years back, so I know what you are dealing with. The best part of cleaning everything out was how many items I found that I forgot I owned. I wore “new” clothes for weeks!

  14. Wanna – be team hoody.
    Is it too late to comment and win?!

    Comment by Amy on October 20, 2010
  15. Oops… never mind – I just figured it out!

    Comment by Amy on October 20, 2010
  16. Just saw the Facebook movie and it made my head spin in many ways. There was too much hand-held cameraness for my taste.

  17. I loved the movie. I’ve actually seen it three times now, and it gets better every damn time.

    I think Zuckerberg is socially retarded, in the clinical sense of the word. I think he has no ability to relate to people, and that makes people think he’s an asshole.

    I think he’s a bit petulant, and he’s definitely arrogant, but in the end, I just feel bad for him more than anything else.

    And the Winklevoss actor should play Superman in the next movie. He’d be outstanding.

  18. […] have mentioned having some rather interesting choices. Remember when I went on and on and on about Jesse Eisenberg’s hoodies and you all jumped right in to tell me that I was Loco Hantz crazy because there’s nothing […]
