When it's over

Some good news and some bad news:

So let’s get the tough stuff out of the way first. Here goes.

I have a confession. I don’t hate Sugar Ray. In fact, I happen to think they’ve been responsible for some damn catchy tunes (one of which I heard yesterday at Qdoba, prompting me to come to this revelation and make this confession), and they give me a warm and fuzzy feeling about my 90s past.

I don’t hate—nay, like—them so much that I went in search of a greatest hits album this morning. WHICH THEY HAVE. Admittedly, I thought it would only have three songs, but 15 tracks, whatever. I’m buying it! Deal with it.

Ok, on to better and brighter things.

1.WHAT?!? Arrested Development is really going to be a movie? Really? It would be cruel to jerk me around. Straight from Jason Bateman’s adorable mouth:

“A big-screen version of Arrested Development is planned for next year. ‘When it was on TV, if you missed one word the whole third act could be blown for you. And TV is a different experience. You come home and you've got to finish a call so you miss the first ten minutes or you get snacky and you go to the fridge and you miss another two minutes, so it's a different experience to film.’

2. There’s a garage sale at the Empty Bottle this weekend, combining my two great loves of drinking and buying junky crap. Really, though, I went to the Schuba’s one last winter and came away with some really cool, super cheap (and free!) posters.

Also of note, lots of cute, friendly boys were milling about the last one. if you're in the market, this might your chance to pick up a not-yet-drunk, music-loving, living and breathing souvenir along with old pool table lights and half-burned-out beer signs.
