The list is long, but distinguished

Let’s jump right in. There is a lot going on today:

  1. Top Gun Day
  2. Friday the 13th
  3. Happy Birthday to my future husband, Prince Carl Philip of Sweden!!

80’s humor is so cheesy. I love reading movie and tv quotes – Pal, Hilary, and I spent the better part of Tuesday with 30 Rock, and it was one of the more entertaining afternoons I’ve had – but the things we laugh at these days are very different than what we were laughing at 25 years ago:

Carole: Hey Goose you big stud!
Goose: That’s me, honey.
Carole: Take me to bed or lose me forever.
Goose: Show me the way home, honey.

I hope I don’t use the word “stud” in a sentence this weekend. Sorry I’m not sorry, Tom Cruise was HOT in Top Gun. Especially in this pic, where you can just appreciate his hotness (I love a man in uniform) without having to think about the fact that he’s a borderline dwarf.

I’m too lazy to be superstitious, so I don’t much care about Friday the 13th. I also hate scary movies, except for the Scary Movie series. Anna Faris is a real gem.

I guess this picture is decidedly not relevant for today, but I think it’s really funny. He looks so defeated :(

Happy Birthday, Prince Carl!!! He is 32 today, if my math is correct, which means he’s probably 33. That is the perfect age gap for a couple, IMO. Have I taken this a bit far? I’ll tell you, lots of people land on BBT by goog’ing “Prince Carl Philip” or some variation thereof, and now that I’ve put his name in quotes even more will…I wonder if he’s the kind of guy who goog’s himself. He probably has people to do that for him. If this is the case, then, To Whom It May Concern: please know that I am completely normal and would make an excellent Princess (reference: Kate Middleton).

This is funny: Fergie’s daughters, who probably kind of suck anyway (they must, they wore THAT to the most important event in the history of important events), really do look like the evil step sisters from Cinderella!! It’s as though they planned it. They probably thought they were being cute :|

Great story. Compelling, and rich.

First & foremost: Happy Friday!!!! Love, Princess Allie Kate

This blog is my favorite thing.

Out of curiosity, I inquired of Goog what Kate’s official title is going to be once married to William. I learned that the answers bored me so I’m going with Princess Kate, erroneous though that may be.

Something about which I wasn’t the least bit curious but now know more than I ever could have wanted: (Thanks for this, Julia Goglia. I am so glad to be privy to this knowledge.)

UK royal bride’s virginity no longer an issue

I hope you’re as startled as I was. Can we not.

For all ATLiens – have I got a tip for you: the best dry cleaners and – AND – shoe repair place (read: they are in the SAME PLACE) is 24/7 Carriage Cleaners (yeah, I Yelp) located on Morosgo Drive off of Piedmont behind Home Depot. Not only are the clothes ready the same day, but the shoe repair is also quick and really cheap. 1 dress, 1 skirt, 1 pair of once-downtrodden-now-rejuvenated 5″ heels: $23.22. That is a steal. Plus the lady is really nice. And there’s always parking. If you go in the morning, the day workers seeking jobs may or may not think you are pulling over to pick up some hourly employees, but that’s an easily corrected misunderstanding.

Another ATL spot upon which I’d like to heap accolades is Paul’s on the Patio (I love Yelp). I have never had an unpleasant experience at Paul’s. Their wine is stupidly pricey, but they do have a list of $5 ‘tinis and other “specialty cocktails” (including cosmos for the gents (Keith)) as well as bomb ass chicken tenders. I’d never had them until last night – I usually stick with the quesadilla – but they’re delish. I realize most people get sushi, which is fine, but don’t be afraid to branch out. And now I’m hungray.

Wisdom: imparted.

Oh ok, sure. Yeah, no – that makes sense

Snoop! Snoop-a-loop! Snoop had a show in Athens last night, and, according MPvZB’s co-worker who runs the sound at 40Watt, he requested that the Green Room be stocked with the following items:

  1. bucket of chicken
  2. bag of weed
  3. skittles

I love Snoop. So, I guess I talk about Kate Middleton a lot or something, because people keep sending me random ass crap that has to do with The Royal Wedding. I mean, like I really care…it’s not like I’m taking her picture with me when I get my haircut this afternoon.

Anyway, here is some Will&Kate swag that you can buy. It concerns me that even one human might purchase the refrigerator wrapping. The tea bags creep me out tremendously, as does the doll – really, none of this is okay.

I am not a basketball fan, at all whatsoever, but I will be watching the Richmond Spiders take on the Kansas Whatevers tonight…and if I miss it, I can just check my mom’s tweets on The Twitter. I bet their surprise success is throwing off all kinds of brackets…go SPIDERS!

the resemblance - it's uncanny

The odds are good, but the goods are odd

Bless her heart, Kate is requesting that, in lieu of wedding gifts, people make charitable donations in their honor…she’s such a person of the people. Although, I suppose that marrying into the Royal Family sort of precludes having to register for monogrammed bath towels and silver picture frames. IRREGARDLESS, I appreciate the gesture.

My current obsession re: the World Wide Web is this site Dear Blank, Please Blank. For instance:

Dear Saturn,
I liked it, so I put a ring on it.
Sincerely, God

Not so much? I laughed. Let’s check in with the Hungover Owls and see how they’re doing…

“To be honest, man, I’m not really feeling up to anything right now. Or ever again, for that matter.”

My hair is glorious enough for the both of us

Posted by AllieB on March 11, 2011

I tend to devote my Fridays to Kate Middleton. That’s not weird at all; it is actually 100% normal. My friend, Hadley P, is the best resource for my Kate 411, and she really outdid herself this time. This is a brilliant blog (I even talk like Kate does – we both say “brilliant”): it takes photogs of Kate – candids, poses, what have you – and then writes captions that are funny.

Hilar. I think I’ll do that with pictures of people I know.

OK…now this is a fun game…
