1. If there were a reality show starring Cat Deeley and Tim Gunn, doing something - anything - for an hour every week, I would watch it.

2. SYTYCD is the lamest show in the history of time.

(I don't really mean it. I love you, show, I do. I just don't like you very much right now.)

3. This morning I did a very silly thing. I went early in the morning to the Good Morning America studios to shriek with a bunch of fangirls for Stephenie Meyer. (For those who may not know, she is a BYU grad who writes books about sparkly teenage vampires and the whiny emo girls who love them. Also, shirtless werewolves.) My old roommate Jenny emailed me on Tuesday saying that the publisher was looking for Twilight fans to be in the studio for Stephenie's interview, and all you had to do was email them with your name. So I thought, why not? And I did.

Let me first explain the way I feel about the Twilight books. They are like cake. I know that cake contains way too much sugar and has zero substance and will probably make me feel kind of ashamed after I finish it, but if you offer me a piece of cake I will eat it, and I will love every minute of it. Because I don't eat cake for the nutritional value. And you know what? If the inventor of cake was on Good Morning America, I would go on the show and thank that person for bringing the sweet, delicious nonsense into my life.

Anyway, it was a lot of fun, although Jenny and I were probably the only people who didn't have t-shirts and/or posters. BUT I did bring my Twilight book and got it signed. Stephenie's rep said she probably wouldn't have time to stick around and meet fans after the show, but Stephenie actually came out before her segment and spent time signing autographs and taking pictures with the 150 or so fans that were there - she was really nice, and made sure she didn't miss anyone. Also, she said she loved my hair.

Also, Diane Sawyer was there, and she is lovely.

Oh, hello.

I was going to post last night, but then I saw that the Harry Potter trailer was finally released and I forgot everything else in the universe.

But now that I've watched it a not at all unreasonable number of times, I can turn my full attention to updating. I realized I haven't uploaded pictures in quite some time, and who doesn't love pictures? Am I right? So please to enjoy any or all of the following albums:

Noelle's wedding
Denver trip (Caution: photos may contain an alarming number of redheads.)
Billy Joel

I went home to CA too, and it was awesome, but I somehow neglected to take photo documentation of the endless hours spent playing Rock Band and Wii Mario Kart. I did, however, get to bask in the wonder of my parents' new house in Pleasanton, which is enormous and beautiful. Looking forward to Christmas, with the whole fam home and enjoying the outdoor kitchen and hot tub in the backyard.

I also have a few videos from the Billy Joel concert, which I will post at a later date.

Ryan started the fiiiiiiiire!

Tonight I was in attendance at the last ever concert at Shea Stadium, starring one William Joel (have I mentioned that I love my job?). Musical guest appearances included Garth Brooks singing "Shameless", Steven Tyler rocking "Walk This Way", and Roger Daltrey doing "My Generation" (during which Mr. Joel smashed his guitar). Tony Bennett and Billy Joel did a duet of "New York State of Mind" and I figured it was probably one of the coolest moments I would ever witness at a concert.

And then Sir Paul McFreakingCartney came on stage to the deafening cheers of 50,000 fans, and the two of them sang "Let It Be" as the final encore and totally blew my mind.

Play it cool, boy.

I am going to go see this next year. Who wants to come?


I have a mosquito bite on the bottom of my foot, right at the base of my big toe. This is the worst thing that has ever happened to me.

Holiday weekend.

My 4th of July plans include playing on the swings with her...

And riding scooters with him...

And meeting her for the first time.

What will you be doing?
