I feel the need to blog about something before I hit the hay. I started blogging about a conversation I had today with my co-workers over lunch at the salad buffet emporium Sweet Tomatoes. The post’s subject matter included TV theme songs, common decency and Geri from “The Facts of Life.” As I was writing it, I started to sound too soap boxy about jokes involving race, handicap, sexual orientation etc…etc. It was becoming too contrived and annoying so I deleted it.
That said, I am going to try to steer clear of politically correct/incorrect things on this blog. I’m not smart enough for that.
Instead, I will share other things. Like how I am supposed to go to Wondercon this weekend and discover my inner geek. Actually, I still have an adoration for X-men and all that other comic book/sci-fi fodder. I popped a woody when I saw the new Star Trek trailer and I am not even a Trekkie. I think it’s because I know J.J. Abrams is directing the movie and he’s one of my many heroes.
Also, I am tentatively making plans to interview John Cho from the “Harold & Kumar” franchise (I think he is also in the new “Star Trek” movie too) and Brenden Frasier. Cho will be promoting H&K, while Frasier will be talking about his new 3-D movie, “Journey to the Center of the Earth.” I wonder if he’d be annoyed if I just talked about “Encino Man” the entire time.
In addition to that, I have a couple of deadlines inching up on me. I have a piece about Chris March from “Project Runway” – he’s the big dude who used to design costumes for a show in SF called Beach Blanket Babylon and I am also working on a “green” wedding dress story.
But the BEST thing I have lined up for the week is a trip to Red Lobster with my friend Alice. We are doing this tour of commercial chain diarrhea-inducing restaurants. So far we have hit Chili’s and Olive Garden. The “Lobster” will definitely be some gastric excitement. I love their Cheddar Bay Biscuits.
Aren’t you glad that I shared all that information with you?
