Randomness hits again

First things first, the football game was craptastic. Seriously. Did you know that when a player punts the ball, it's supposed to go down the field, not straight up in the air?? And if opposing players are coming at you, the correct thing to do is step out of bounds rather than RUN THE OTHER WAY?? I know this, you know this. They do not know that. They need some serious help.

Second, I have a second date with Coffee Date Guy. He called Thursday and asked for a second date. We're going to see some live music and grab some dinner. A dinner date! I'm a bit nervous, but I suppose I should be fine.

Ok, so 90210 comes on tonight, the big premiere. I have it all set to record, since I'm going to an orchid lecture later. I will totally admit I know way more about the original series than any sane person should, but I will deflect that critism by saying I watch the reruns on SoapNet. Here's where my little rant starts. The creators of the original say they showed important issues like teen sex and addiction. Yes, but only for ONE episode. When Brandon wrecked his car, there were no lasting punishments or consequences. Dylan took him to an AA meeting and his parents bought him a new car. (This was supposedly the entire reason for the episode, so Brandon could get cooler wheels. See this.) The first season is chock full of one episode problems that are "resolved" before the end credits. Everything is just too easily wrapped up. For Chuck's sake, Brandon never got grounded or anything for being drunk underage and then wrecking his car, after the party he threw which he was not to be throwing. Ok, this is a stupid rant, but I don't care. It was only in later seasons, where Kelly becomes the damsel in distress, that they show long term complications. Oh, and everybody who says the show was done for Tori Spelling? Dude, she's barely cognizant in the first season.

I am eating the best thing ever. Refried beans from a bag. Kind of like instant mashed potatoes. Throw some cheese on top, deliciousness.

Ok, so as I was going to sleep last night, I was listening to the "50 First Dates" soundtrack. And as I drifted off, I kept thinking, "Wasn't Drew Barrymore in another movie with Adam Sandler about baseball. Oh, wait, that was Jimmy Fallon. FAIL." Yes, I actually thought fail. Why? Jimmy Fallon tries to hard to be the New Adam Sandler. Case in point: both were on SNL as memorable characters who sang. Oh, and they were both in movies with the Barrymore. Okay, so I don't have much more proof, I swear I did last night. And it was AWESOME.

And I am pissed that Gustav did not land farther west. We gets no rain, just HOT fucking weather. It should not be 100 damn fucking degrees in September, I don't care where you live. (The desert is an exception. The city? Not so much.) Please to be cooling off and raining, kthxbai.

I read the whole post but for some reason the only thing I can keep thinking of is about the refried beans in a bag--a bag??? (oh and I was going to let you know that I got that Little Miss/Mr. magnet thing at Target!)

I only caught the last half of the show last night....but I adored the original and am still not sure if I care to see what happened to them. What did you think of it?

I'm thinking Brandon is Kelly's baby daddy...just a guess though.
