  1. You should add FINALLY knowing who Pitbull is. :)

    I love when comedians laugh at their own stuff.

    The Pitbull one is in there JUST for you. Heh.

    Also, yes. Especially when they are trying so hard NOT to. Love it.

    That’s one of the many reasons why I LOVED watching Harvey Korman on the old Carol Burnett Show! Watching him struggle not to laugh at Tim Conway made it even funnier. I don’t think he ever did one show where he didn’t laugh.

  2. Wait. Can we talk about self-serve frozen yogurt for a second? There is a Menchie’s about a 10 min walk from our house. We went once and it was ok but all of those toppings out in the open really, really terrified the germaphobe who lives very comfortably in me. Many patrons of that fine establishment took the serving utensils as a suggestion only, and there was plenty of smartie-grabbing and skittles-snatching by people; with their bare hands!!! Ewwww. In theory a great idea but I just can’t stomach the thought of embellishing my frozen yogurt with potentially compromised toppings. I am SO SORRY if I burst your bubble…did I? Or do you bring your own toppings? Or maybe there is a self-serve frozen yogurt place that you go to that has its toppings more, um, under wraps?

  5. Which scene in Almost Famous? There are so many!

  6. mmmm, Read My Lips tea…just reading that sends me to a happy place. It’s also the tea I share and subsequently get people addicted to Davids. :)

  7. The scene when he finally gets it – that Watts is the ONE?
    That scene?

  8. Time.
    Time for my family. Time for me. Time for my friends. Time to do absolutely nothing. Or something.

  9. I LOVE when comedians crack up. Craig Ferguson is my favorite. :)

  10. When Watts is sitting on the counter and they are practicing the kiss??? Now I need to find my VHS tape. And a VHS. Best kiss scene EVER!
