Had a very nice weekend, despite the fact that two of the three nights were spent recovering from a Friday night bender with people from work, who, despite my now having been been at the job for 2 years, I'd never really spent much time with. We did the Friday after work Happy Hour thing - at one of the diviest bars in the valley - which ended up lasting until 4 in the morning. At the second bar we met up with our old Big Boss who is now the CEO of an internet start-up. I'm not exactly sure why, but after semi-drunkenly rapping with him about everything from baseball to how funny I found his management style (laid-back, amused, honest), he offered me a job. It is nearly the dream job I mentioned before that I wished I'd somehow land with this company, and for much more money. The downsides? Many. Including massively increased commute and the sense that I now an am employee rather than a temp, which I can imagine translating in my oft over-firing brain into: I Have Sold Out And Will Never Make It As An Actor. The benefits? Many. Including the fact that CEO-man knows what I want to do with my life and that this would not be it. Also stock options and the specter of a possible IPO and instant wealth. It's still a semi-vague offer made at a bar, but nonetheless, something I'll have to massively ponder.


...Since I am a big loser, I was home to watch Saturday Night Live. It was a re-run with Julianna Margulies hosting. The attentive of you will remember that I love me some Julianna Margulies, almost as much as I love me some Cate Blanchett. Anyway, she was in this skit in which she's at dinner at the home of her new boyfriend's parents for the first time. The boyfriend turns out not to have salivary glands - a fact discovered when Will Farrell stands over him and drops a chewed hunk of food out of his mouth right into his "son's". It was gross. Very very very gross. And they did this a few times. Finally, Chris Kattan, playing a similarly afflicted younger brother, asks Julianna Margulies to chew and then "give him" some of the apple pie he's just gotten from McDonalds. Suddenly swept up by the lots of love in the room, Julianna enthusiastically chews a hunk of pie, stands over Chris Kattan, and drops it from her mouth into his. She then does the same for her boyfriend.

Would y'all think less of me if I told you that by the end of the skit I found myself wishing I was on the receiving end of Julianna's chewed pie? (OK, that sounds even grosser than I meant it to.)

ONE YEAR AGO TODAY: Finally canceled subscription to US Magazine after they ignored yet another of my letters asking them to please put Sean Astin on the cover. However, later that day I re-subscribed.
