Courtesy Patrol

The other day we were in the grocery and I noticed that one of the employees there had an orange vest that read "Courtesy Patrol" across the back.  I imagined that his job was to walk around the store, and if someone was being a jerk, he'd go, "Hey.  Hey!  HEY!  Cut it out!"  I would like to have that vest.

Then, what do you know but I'm reading this article about online bullies?  And it mentions that Facebook has a team that is literally called the Hate and Harassment Team.  No joke.  And I was like, if I was on the Hate and Harassment Team, I would just walk around the office knocking shit off people's desks and getting up in everyone's grill.

But.  Seriously.  There is a team that works for a very large company called the HATE and HARASSMENT team.  I can't seem to get that out of my head.

I could certainly use the Courtesy Patrol at my office.

I've been watching a ridick amount of tv and movies because my stoopid foot still hurts like hell (and it's still hurting!)  Last weekend we watched a dumb movie called The Invasion.  It was not good, even though it has Nicole Kidman AND Daniel Craig in it AND they kiss.  We also watched that Joseph Gordon-Levitt movie, Looper.   It's full of holes and Joseph Gordon-Levitt wears a prosthetic nose to look like a young Bruce Willis which seems to take away from his very Gordon-Levittness.  Also he wears a frankly alarming color of lip stain.  There wasn't really any kissing.  

I finally got around to watching Ab Fab and it was... absolutely fabulous.  (I don't believe anyone's ever made that joke before...)  Now have desire to hold my mouth in bizarre way and call people darling.  And take up smoking. Again.

Oh, good lord... I watched Compliance on Netflix streaming and it shook me to my very core!  Know Your Rights!

Last night I finally got around to watching The Americans - a new tv show where Felicity is like a Russian Spy or something?  I never really watched Felicity but that's who she'll always be to me.  Is she believable as a Russian doing a perfect American accent who occasionally brutally kills people with her bare hands then has weird we-just-killed-a-dude-sex with her arranged-spy-husband in the back seat of their car?  I guess so.  Also it takes place in the 80s and she wears high waisted Guess jeans.  So.  There's that.

The Whos down in Whoville

People who are crazy about Doctor Who are called Whovians.  Did you know that?  I'm not sure I am one yet, but I really really like Doctor Who.  So, recently we finished the David Tennant episodes, and I was pretty sure no one could ever replace him.

When I realized the end was coming, I was like....

And then I was in straight denial.

I was like, This is straight up ridiculous, and no one can replace him.  Also I want Rose back.

But, last night we watched the first Matt Smith episode and ... I gotta say.  I LIKED it. A LOT.

Also, here's a picture that doesn't move but is pretty awesome.  Holy mackerel, amirite?

Peg Leg

Well, some bad news is my foot still really hurts and lately I've been pretty sad, imagining what the rest of my life will be like with two peg legs - probably not as great as this guy makes it seem...

Also M and I have been watching Dr. Who, and I've developed an irrational crush on David Tennant and I'm actually QUITE upset about his reign as The Doctor coming to an end.  I feel a lot like this...
