Happy Election Day! Election days are the craziest days at work, and I'll prob. be at the office until midnight tonight...and that's a conservative estimate. Oy.
Anyway, don't try to steal an election tonight like Luke Snyder! Or at least don't get caught doing it...
So today I logged into my Twitter account at the actual Twitter site, instead of just using my Tweetie application, and I saw that some whacko user had added me to their follow lists with these names and descriptions:
Spammers Reported to Twitter - tweets saved for proof.
People who are hate mongers and hate themselves - we need to get off twitter
This is a list of ugly people both inside and out. They need to get a life and get off twitter.
List of people who are crazy and need professional mental health help
List of mind numb asshole who just repeat each others crap
LOL, OMG. I don't even know what this is about. I barely use this Twitter account, so I'm hardly a spammer!
Then I took a look at who this "1776LibertyBell" person is, and his bio is, and he's some whacko Glenn Beck fan, so that explains everything.
So I figure the LONE tweet that must have gotten me added to this list is this one about Glenn Beck: "RT @BorowitzReport: Why would you pay to see Jackass when you can watch Glenn Beck for free?"
I suppose this one might have also done the job: "RT @BorowitzReport: Reading, Writing Could Be Election Day Hurdles for Tea Party Voters"
Anyway, this amused and disturbed me. I have to go back to being a hate monger now.
I know it's only one game and means absolutely nothing, but I thank sweet, sweet karma for allowing the Cleveland Cavs to beat the Boston Celtics in their season opener tonight - the day after LeBron James and his super team of inflated egos on the Miami Heat lost to the Celtics.
And without Mo Williams, to boot.
I'm debating whether I should start watching Young and the Restless again now that Maura West is on it.
The thing is, I never liked the character she's playing, Diane. Her first scene is pretty awkward, to me. And she's so...proper? It's a weird transition from Carly.
Phyllis cracked me up, though.
I guess Terri Colombino has been cast on One Life to Live. Although I like her, I won't be watching that show. I'm only leaning toward Y&R because I used to watch it and am familiar with the characters.
Since I posted about it yesterday, here's an update on the Paris trip.
From the organizers:
I'd like to remind everyone that MGC events is a non-profit association. There are laws on this kind of organizations. It was decided that benefits made by both events would be donated to ILGA Europe. Organizing an event is very expensive, there are a huge amount of costs that I won't list due to confidentiality reasons. The donation to ILGA Europe has been made. But the amount will not be announced publicly. Thanks for understanding. I am shocked to hear there are accusations made against me and my loyalty...If you have questions, contact me.
So who knows.
Oh, I thought I'd mention that Billy Magnussen (Casey on ATWT) is guest starring on NCIS: Los Angeles
I only watch the original version of NCIS
, but I might have to make an exception tonight.
I actually watched Billy in that movie Twelve
a couple of weeks ago, and while the movie is...forgettable, Billy gave a pretty good performance in it. Plus he's shirtless (or more) through most of it. So.
Speaking of Billy, Billy and Van together is one of my favorite things. I find it hilarious that the most viewed photo (by about twice as much as the next most-viewed photo) on my Ember account
is this one of Billy and Van:
I <3 them.ETA:
Wait, wait. There's a reality show about some jackass married to four women? Seriously? Sick.
I have been watching Martha Byrne's indie soap series, Gotham, and...it's strange. A bunch of actors who used to be on As the World Turns have roles in it, like Martha, Michael Park (who played Jack Snyder), the actress who played Mitzi, the actor who played Keith, and others I can't recall at the moment.
I fully admit to watching it only because I wanted to see Paolo Seganti (who played Damian on As the World Turns).
I am baffled by the scarf and hat combo he's sporting in this clip, yet I strangely still find him very attractive.
Ugh. I have such a bad toothache right now, I feel like crying. I've tried ice, I've tried hot water, I've tried sucking on a mint (which usually does the trick), but nothing.
Anyway, I can't believe ATWT is ending this week. It's sucked up so much of my time - and just as a viewer and reader! - that I'm not sure what I'm going to do with myself when it's over.
So were Lily and Holden on today's show? Just lalala'ing about like they don't have a devastated son at home?
ETA: And Van Hansis is being very amusing on Facebook tonight, including posting this God-awful song with the advice NOT to listen to it.
Van Hansis: "so this is my non official song on the mix. this song actually annoys the hell out of me. i made the mistake of downloading robot unicorn attack onto my iphone a few days ago. since then this stupid song has been on repeat in my mind. and it is making me crazy. do yourself a favor and dont listen. i present: erasure- always."
I have actually played that game before, but I thought the song was just part of the soundtrack! I didn't realize it was by a real band.
Aw, man. I am looking for the scan of the Aug. 18, 2008 edition of CBS Soaps in Depth and I cannot find it. The site that usually has the scans (the Nuke Gallery) doesn't have it, and the links I found to the jpgs of the scans are broken. :/
The reason I want to read it is because it includes a pretty funny interview with Van (and Jake, I think) where he gives this quote to explain the lack of sex between Luke and Noah:
"Luke doesn't have a crotch. Luke's like one of those action figures or a Ken doll. That's the secret of why they haven't done anything."
LOL. I can't believe he said that to a soap magazine.
Sadly, Luke is still a Ken doll on this stupid show.
Well. I should be getting ready to leave the house soon. I was given tickets to a wine festival that's going on this weekend, which makes it the second wine-tasting event I've been to this month. I'm certainly not complaining!
Seriously, ATWT. You really couldn't give a character who has been traumatized since he was a kid a happy ending?
(And Lucinda shoves cake in Craig's face about 2/3rds into that video. LOL. Some things never change!)
This kid, though! Even when he's been kidnapped
, he's more worried about making other people (in this case, Holden) feel better.
