i was going through some old posts and realized i haven't discussed my new mattress at all. i had no idea how shitty my old one was until i started sleeping on my new one. i also picked up some of these nature's rest pillows, and armed w/ the firm one of those and my new rhapsody mattress, i am in HEAVEN. it is sooooo comfortable. my sides no longer hurt when i'm sleeping, and i've been getting the best nights of sleep in years.
i'm also digging my new couch. it's not as modern or trendy as my old orange couch, but it is waaaay more comfortable, and given the size of my apartment and how rarely i entertain, i'm ok with that. mike says it's bachelorish (bacheloretteish?), and maybe it is moreso than my orange one, but i think once i finish my living room it'll just look cool and comfortable. chloe enjoyed it last night while we extremely cheesily watched high school musical. omg, did i just admit that? ok, for real. it is way over the top and horribly acted, but damn are some of those songs catchy. it would have been a dream come true for me back in junior high, and i can see why it's the most popular disney movie ever. i did go out for a trendy dinner, so it's not like my saturday night was a totel nerd-cheese fest.
friday night i saw year of magical thinking w/ vanessa redgrave. no doubt she is a great actress, and didion is a fantastic writer (btw, david hare, the director, was the author of stuff happens, the play that used one of my photos last year), but i did think some of the parts felt forced, and i was totally confused about what order things occurred with her daughter. i thought it was cause i dozed off a bit in the first 45 minutes, but my mom stayed awake the whole time and told me she was confused also. no matter, considering it was a one-woman monologue, it kept my attention far better than i would have dreamed.
i was about to say that i'm off to watch brothers and sisters and the last two eps of 30 rock, but then a screen popped up reminding me that i'd registered for the 10:45 token frenzy. oops.
meant to post about alec baldwin earlier in the week, but as per usual work was so stressful and time so limited that i never got around to it. that voicemail was awful, but i just strongly believe that i should never have heard it. hard to ignore when howard stern and other sirius channels are playing it constantly, but generally i think stuff like that shouldn't be released. i'm as curious about celebrities as the next person, and i'll devour an us weekly when it's put in front of me, but that doesn't make it right. when i hear someone like lindsay lohan say
that she'd be scared if the cameras weren't following her and she'd say why aren't you following me anymore (i'm paraphrasing here), i want to puke. but i digress. basically i do feel like the media has just crossed a line somewhere, and that domestic squabbles of that particular ilk are not my (or anyone else's) business.
but...seeing as it's out there, whatever i think of alec baldwin personally, he just cannot, under any circumstances, leave 30 rock. HE IS 30 ROCK. DON'T DO IT ALEC. sounds like nbc isn't gonna let him go anywhere, and they are extremely smart for that. if anything (sad as this is) it may even garner new viewers for the show who will finally see what the fuss is about. if you are one of the millions who hasn't checked it out yet, rent it, download it, tivo rerun it, whatever. just watch it.
