i should have known. i should have known something was up this week when at 7:20 this morning, all three of my kids were still sleeping. i should have known from the fact that i wore the same pair of jeans on Friday and on Monday. (they ARE my – discontinued – dessas, but STILL…i would NEVER do that). i should have known from the fact that i went to sleep last night at 8:30.

i swear. 8:30. i watched the first half of last week’s House and fell asleep. and didn’t wake up until this morning when Isabella needed to pee. 8:30! to put that into perspective for you, i was asleep before TWO of my children. usually, i’m up late. making blankets, getting the latest gossip, reading, baking (lately, i can’t. stop. baking. it’s a sickness, really) doing the daily crossword and sudoku in the National Post, watching our downloaded tv shows – 30 Rock, How I Met Your Mother, Rome, and, of course, Arrested Development…

best. show. ever.

and then it hit me. on the 22nd of this month…i will be turning


shit. shit. shit.

from now until then, don’t be surprised if there’s a lot of this…

(thanks, Emily)

and even more of this…

and some of this too…

because, dude, just because i occasionally go to sleep when it’s still light out, i’m SO never growing up. EVER.

so…this week i will have the pleasure of sitting down and interviewing this lovely man…

from this lovely tv show…

i know, right? (i’m sweating a little just thinking about it…i hope i don’t sweat during the actual interview…)

here’s where i need your help…i already warned him that i’m not all that, erm, professional when it comes to this whole interviewing thing so he has been forewarned!

but, help me out here…what would YOU ask him?

  1. Seriously? I would ask him if he likes breakfast in the morning…so I would know what to make! That is some hot!
    And…30? Come on now…talk to me when you are rapidly approaching 40. I’ll be 38…errr…34 this fall…I am in the 35-45 demographic…that is old! Keep your feet firmly lodged in the under 35 crowd!

  2. Awww, 30 is GREAT! I don’t miss my 20s AT ALL! As for the interview, sorry Al, I’m no help. No idea who he is…. And, as for the sweat, don’t worry, he’ll be sweating LOOKING AT YOU! πŸ˜‰

  3. I’m not Canadian, so I don’t get this Rent a Goalie business.

    But I do want to say that I am 27 and I WISH I could go to sleep in daylight hours. I’m up all damn night.

  4. Hey … don’t stress too much. I’ll be turning 30 before you – by 2 days!
    Actually I sort of feel like my age is catching up with my life (2 kids, house, mini van) you know

  5. 30? That’s all? You’re just a kid!

    As for what I’d ask him… if his role required him to have a mullet, would he grow his own, or insist on a wig?

  7. I WISH I was turning 30!!! I’ll be turning a VERY DREADED 39 at the end of the year. Have you ever heard of an uglier number?!
    Turning 30 was traumatic for me but I made it & I seriously feel awesome right now!!!

  8. Amen, Arrested Developement is pure genius and the fact that it was cancelled after 3 seasons is an injustice!

  11. I would ask him if he has ever done it in the back of a mini-van…and then I would take him to my mini-van. HOT!

  13. Jeez I wish you’d come to my house and bake this cake I have due tomorrow. I am so not in the mood. I wish I had someone to do the baking so I could just decorate.

    I was scheduled to turn 30 back in March but I got stuck in traffic and missed the appointment. πŸ˜‰ My kids are trained to tell everyone I’m 29. Not sure how many years I can ride that one. I’m also considering a letter system…so this year I’m 29b. That gives me a good 26 years at 29. Good grief I think I may just need to start drinking.

  14. And seriously, when are you going to open an Etsy shop and sell those adorable blankets to the rest of the world? πŸ˜›

  15. Someone spent WAY too long on that video. The scenes were incredibly choreographed to be appropriate for the lyrics.

    Great video – better show!

    Comment by Giblet on May 6, 2008
  16. I’m turning 30 this August! If it wasn’t for breastfeeding I would be drunk every night until then πŸ˜‰

    I would ask him: Who are you? (’cause I have NO idea)

  17. (I don’t know who he is.) But!!! I will say that I am in awe that you’ll be talking to someone famous, which by my calculation gives me two degrees of separation from that guy.

    Also. 30? You’re practically a spring chicken.

  18. Oh. My. Word. He is WAY to hawt for words. Umm… ask him to talk about himself. How did he get his role as the hawt-guy-in-a-show-I’ve-never-heard-of?

    If it makes you feel any better, I’m only two years behind you on the 30 thing. I’ll watch you and learn for when my turn comes lol

    I get to met her in 5 months and everyone is raving about 30. 29, though, she’s kicking my ass!

  28. See, but you get to leave any and all crap from your twenties behind. At least, that’s how I spun it when I turned 30! (Tagged you for a meme on my site.)

  29. Yes, age is JUST a number! It’s what you make of it.
    I’ve never felt old, not once! I don’t even remember how old I am half of the time.

    When I get carded at the LCBO (yes, I still get carded sometimes), I go all red while I do the math in my head (which is a challenge in itself, let me tell ya!)

  31. Turning 30? Nothing to it. At least you don’t have to come up with any fake i.d.’s. Look at it this way, you’re only 20 years away from an AARP card. Think of all the cool discounts you’ll get then.

  32. I’ll be thirty (ouch ! hurts to type it) at the end of the year too. You seem so much more advanced than me in the game of life so I think you have nothing to worry about. However, I have heard that your thirties are great, you let go of the anxieties of your twenties ! So lets look forward to it !

    Comment by Heather on May 7, 2008
  33. I have no idea what that show is. But he is beautiful, and I want you to lick his face for me. I also want you to ask him what his favorite mistake is. But mostly just do the licking.

  34. First off, you’re not 30 yet? I have very little compassion for you… πŸ™‚ This October I am observing the 20th anniversary of my 16th birthday. That may make me sound older than 36… anyway…

    Secondly. Ask that guy a question? Dude, i’d just stare and drool. I’m classy that way.

    Have fun!

  35. I’d ask him how I go about renting him to come and sit in my house and let me drool over him.

    Failing that, I want to meet all the great goalies. Ahhh.

    Congrats on turning 30 this month! I will be 29 on the 26th and I cannot wait for my 30th b’day. Although, on the rare occasion I have a day like you did, I begin to dread it.

  36. It’s just a number. I felt fantastic after I turned thirty and I really had built it up to be the WORST THING EVER.

    Sorry I’m late on the questions – how did the interview go?

  38. Girl I am over 4 years into my thirties and, let me tell you, they are SO much better than the twenties. Not. Kidding.

    But if you’re looking for an excuse to drink (as if) then by all means, carrying on about being 30.

    Meanwhile, I throw down a shot and welcome you to the club.
