Posting that much is hard, especially when you watch as much TV as I do! So, I took a week off from posting, but I’m hoping to get back to a semi-regular schedule. Life is still as hectic as ever. Yours truly, Girl Friday, will be a homeowner on Friday (unless I have just horribly jinxed myself!). Here are a few of the things I have been up to:
Television! I think I will honor characters that exemplify Girl Friday qualities–characters who go above and beyond the call of duty, characters who are put through the ringer for this thing called employment.
Studio 60: Finally, I’ve caught up! Are you watching, Sarakastic? Lauren Graham guest starred last Monday and will be back for more today. If you follow the gossip rags like Notorious M.A.G. and I do, then you should know that she is often linked socially to Matthew Perry. Supposedly they’re just friends…
The Girl Friday Award goes to lowly production assistant Suzanne! Given the chance to be interviewed by Vanity Fair, I’d crack under the pressure and probably reveal compromising anecdotes about my boss, too!
Veronica Mars: Poor Veronica! She has good reason to be suspicious of Logan. She knows better than anyone what a sleaze he can be, but I don’t think being obsessively jealous and paranoid is healthy. Let’s hope she can find her cool-as-a-cucumber self again.
I’m honored to present Mr. Weevil Navarro with the Girl Friday Award! He was pleased as punch to be Keith’s sidekick. I only hope he won’t be too disappointed with the worst demotion in history—private dick to janitor—in under sixty minutes!
Movies! I don’t have an award to give out, but just a strong recommendation. I finished watching the HBO film Girl in the Café, and it is seriously one of my new favorite movies! Its dry British humor offsets its socially conscious message. I laughed and I cried. The majority of the movie takes place in Iceland (yeah, baby!). The main characters, Lawrence and Gina, joke that no one really knows more than one fact about this awesome little country.
By the end of the movie they knew four things:
Gina: I do now know four things about Reykjavik–Björk comes from here…
Lawrence: Spassky played Fisher here…
Gina: Zips shrink here. And it is possible, in Reykjavik, to have a night of something quite close to love.
Run henceforth to rent The Girl in the Café! Would Girl Friday lead you astray? I think not!
