I always wanted to be Jessie's Girl

I've heard this song twice already today. And both times I totally rocked out. No jokes. In the middle of the library. Don't ask why Rick Springfield was on in my office. It has to do with an ill-advised NPR cancellation and the desperate search for a morning replacement.

For now, enjoy Rick. Rick! Rick! Rick!

Now if only I could remember the routine that I created for this song when I was seven...

America tries to kill us with sweet, sweet death

Ahhh American, probably the only country with the ability to invent such a monstrosity of sugar and fat. Apparently this is known as the Luther Burger and it involves a massive amount of beef, American cheddar, bacon and the piece de resistance...a glazed Krispy Kreme donut in place of a bun.
My gall bladder just threw it's hand in the air and stormed out of the room, muttering something along of the lines of "Go Fuck Yourself".
This morning I'm off to the land of the luther in search of cheap clothes, chicken wings and cheesecake. If border security starts monitoring blood sugar levels we are so screwed.

Before Cat Deeley there was DTV

Whenever I sit down with Cat on a Wednesday night I'm always reminded of sleepovers in my friend Catherine's basement, listening to INXS, prank calling boys, playing with my new spiral perm and getting ready to watch Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.
Now I have to say that to this day this movie is still one of my ultimate favorites. I was in love with Janey Glenn way before Carrie Bradshaw got drunk at Tunnel and made out with the waiter. Way. Before.
And how stinking hot is Lee Montgomery in this movie? Jebus.
My little sister has now worn my copy of the VHS tape down to a nub, so I'll be looking to get a DVD copy asap. Especially now that my appetite for DTV has been revived.
Watch, enjoy.

Another reason I love Torontonians

They're willing to call a spade a spade - in an intelligent manner.
