If Only You Spoke Hovito

I normally hate George Lucas, because I think he's a greedy bastard who makes people buy multiple versions of their favorite childhood movies. He's also the evil mother fucker that gave us The Phantom Menance and Jar Jar Binks.

But, then, sometimes he fills me with a childlike hope.

This is one of those times.

They are making a new Indiana Jones movie.

Spielberg is directing. Harrison is staring. One would think it would be almost impossible to mess this up.

But, I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

It's A Wonderful Life

Rome Girl said that yesterday was "the best day ever!"

She woke up to find that she'd signed two freelance jobs and started working on them and said they were very fun and made her feel like she was "doing something" rather than just reacting to her current job troubles.

Then she got contacted by one of her bosses which made her a little nervous because she's been convinced that they are going to get rid of her when he contract ends in a few months. Instead, however, they are transfering her out of the data entry part of her job - which she hates - and making her in charge of training for all the frainchise people - which is a long term job and one that she thinks will be "fun."

After that I went over to Fitzpatrick's and there was a surprise package for her. Turns out her parents had sent her all three seasons of Arrested Development. She's wanted that for a long time but had not gotten it because she' knows I'm not into sitcoms.

We watched a bunch of episodes, ordered pizza and then went to bed for some viagra induced sex.

"I loved this day," she said, before drifting off into sleep.

Arrested Development

We watched the first few episodes of Arrested Development last night. I'm not sure how I feel about it:

1. At times it's very, very funny.

2. But Jason Bateman reminds me of a tall Michael J. Fox and I miss Michael J. Fox

3. There is not one character here that I can sympathize with or identify with. Bateman is a brown nosing synchophant who is just pissed off that kissing his dad's ass didn't get him the company. His family members are just idiots without any depth.

4. Portia de Rossi is the hottest lesbian in the world.

5. I feel like it's not as edgy as it thinks it is.

Beauty!

One of Rome Girl's gay Italian friends did a YouTube video that is a tribute to beauty queens. He included pictures of Rome Girl in it!!!

I'm A Matchmaker!

Trixie has now been on three dates with the guy I set her up with in D.C.

And the sex is decent!

And she likes him!

I feel like a character from Fiddler on the Roof!

Too bad she's moving back to Barcelona on Monday
