Every time I see a Hummer I get this urge. For the longest while I wasn’t even sure what the urge was. Did I want to put one of those “Ask me why the planet’s heating up!” bumper stickers on it? Did I want to spit on it? Give it dirty looks?
Now, thanks to the folks at:
I know exactly what that urge was… (Check out particularly the “Call on Me” clip.
Caution: Felicity Spoilers Ahead!
I’m sad to report that Felicity officially jumped the shark last night and did so with a supersonic jetpack. Time travel? Huh? First they basically cut Elena from the show(she just showed up long enough to punch that irritating guy), then they KILLED HER, then there’s the whole Ben’s kid subplot, then there’s the inevitable Felicity and Ben getting back together, then he cheats with a random blonde (the worst kind!) and now time travel? Dang. Even if they knew they were going to get canceled, there was no need to go quite so Fonzie about it.
Finally, thanks to those who’ve written to say they saw my cameo on Alice, I Think and especially all those who’ve lied and said how great I was. Love you guys! My favourite response came from some people at the barn where I keep my horse. Robyn, who owns the barn, and Rose, another boarder, came outside on Sunday evening after the show aired on CTV.
“We are late because we had to watch Alice,” said Robyn.
“Oh great!” I said, then went silent, waiting for them to issue some sort of compliment.
None was forthcoming, so I said, “So, do you think I’m going to get an Academy Award nomination?” (If no compliment comes naturally, I just ask for one directly. That’s just how I roll.)
They looked at each other, clearly confused.
“Uh, sure. Maybe you could get one for writing?” said Robyn, in a tone of voice that suggested I was more likely to get an award from the local branch of the Idiot Society.
“Not for acting?” I said, because I’m nothing if not persistent in my pursuit of the all-important compliment.
“Heh, heh,” said Robyn and Rose, who were obviously starting to get a bit nervous being alone with me in the barn.
“I was in the show!” I said.
“Yes! I was Customer #2!”
“The woman with the book?”
“Yeah! That was me!”
“Wow. You were really good. We didn’t even recognize you!”
“They had great makeup people,” I explained.
Then we all had a good laugh.
Given that response, my guess is that CTV has not been flooded with letters asking that Customer #2 be given a starring role. Sigh. I guess I should have got those diamonds in my teeth like I planned. Then people would have noticed me…
