My new awesome Tumblr blog:
Jeanne and I are huge craigslist fans and she loves scavenging through the furniture section looking for deals and fixer uppers.? We have two beautiful pieces in our dining room that she’s found that you would swear cost four times what we actually paid for them.? Of course, being in South Jersey, the furniture scene is unintentionally hilarious.? Some of the posts there are such horrific offenses to style, taste, and common sense that they must be shared with others and that’s where Jeanne’s new blog comes in:? MustSeeLikeNew.com
Here’s a example:
These chairs are an example of why regular people should not design their own furniture.? Gross!? The poor, clueless person describes the fabric as ?rich and vibrant? and ?nostalgic.?? The only way this fabric could be these things is if you?re nostalgic about your own vomit.

Most trends are easy to spot in hindsight, so now it definitely seems as though fake-realism has overtaken situational comedy as shown on the Office, Colbert, Ali-G, etc. The latest in this trend is VH1’s Free Radio, starring Lance Krall and Anna Vocino as a pair of radio talk show DJ’s who take over after their star morning jock leaves unexpectedly for satellite radio. Lance, previously the station’s intern, has no idea what he’s doing but in the world of amateur success we live in today the show becomes a hit.
Free Radio seems like an Ali-G style interview show, but in this case all the celebrities are in on the jokes. Still, I think it works despite missing the humiliation factor. What’s really funny are the questions that Lance decides (or doesn’t decide) to ask. I loved when he asked what the big deal was about “Ugly Betty” since there has always been shows with ugly stars, such as Roseanne or the Golden Girls.
Here’s the trailer:
Amazingly, he seemed ok with getting traded!
It’s always fun when your Christmas tree falls over.? I wish I had gotten a picture, but I was a little frustrated. hah.

I did something really dumb on Thursday after work. I had a bunch of stuff to take home and it took a while to put it all in the car. I pulled out of the drive way and made a quick left when I heard something fall off the roof of my car.
I pulled over and checked my bag. My iPod wasn’t in there.
I slowly stepped out of the car and saw the iPod still sitting on the roof of my car. My radio transmitter is what ended up falling off and even that was still sitting on the trunk! Whew.
