The Girl Called Rachel


Is 1-800-FLOWERS over-filling their bouquets? I’m no botanist, but it would seem like the stems need to be exposed to a certain amount of water to survive for the time you would like your 80 dollar flowers to last. If they would naturally die for the sake of the florist being able to create a perfectly round and grandiose bunch, do they have some kind of preservative in them? Do I really care about this?

How do these flowers get water?

I don't want to tell anyone how to spend money, but... I don't want them.

God. I feel a little like Gary Busey. Yikes.

Kurt Elling is probably the most confident person in the world. I imagine that’s what my Dad doesn’t like about him.

I just cracked my knuckles exactly to the tune “We’re In The Money”

Do you ever notice that happening in nature? Or hearing the same pattern of sounds all throughout a day.

How do people write music? Is some of it accidental? What we all think was genius on the part of the composer was really inspired by the way pinecones fell off a tree when a squirrel jumped on it?

I’m talking to this blog like she is my friend. Like I am sitting in my living room and telling my best friend that I feel like Gary Busey. Something totally irrelevent, ridiculous or banal, but it doesn’t matter because you will say a thousand things today and some will mean a lot and some will mean a little and some very very little. But your best friend is the one who can sit with you and hear all of your shit and know dramas, but she sticks with you because she hears a few good things in between.

Mmm! Burnt apple!

Mmm! Burnt apple!

Christine is a woman with problems and a sense of humor. Why don’t people watch this show? Great great cast, great rhythm with each other. I honestly think it’s hilarious! I think Julia Louis-Dreyfus is so much more courageous a comedian than so many other actors pretending to be funny. She’s willing to look ugly and she her character has questionable morals. The vaseline screen is a little distracting, but on the whole this is a funny show.

But honestly, has there been an agreement between the writers of various sitcoms that the scripts will now be peppered with previous taboos? There have been some shocking jokes this season.

Let’s keep track. I’m sure I’ll add more later. (This may not be for the faint of heart. Mom, if you ever read this, stop now.):

  • New Christine deepthroats
  • The first two episodes of Scrubs (I haven’t watched since because it was ruined in the move to ABC) in their entirety. The only thing in Ted’s briefcace is a loaded gun? His depression is no longer light-hearted joke. Woah.
