My former roommates and I once committed ourselves to learning the entire Thriller dance. Needless to say, we never quite got all of it. I mean, sure if we were incarcerated like these guys and really didn't have anything better to do I'm sure we could have mastered the Thriller Dance before Halloween just like we planned.

Guilty Pleasures: BBC America

Ever since my first jaunt across the pond as a senior in high school, I've loved the BBC. British television has some allure that I just can't shake. Eventually, I discovered BBC America, back in the days when Eastenders and Ground Force were the only shows on and the only commercials were those "As Seen on TV" spots. I was thrilled when The Graham Norton Show came to BBC America and I'm still DVR'ing it today. There was also a short time when Graham Norton came to America and my best friend Jen and I almost made it out to NYC to sit in the audience. I'm still kicking myself for not going!

Today I have a whole set of BBClicious shows to watch. My favorite Footballer's Wives, which is on Wicked Wednesdays, the soap Hollyoaks, and the Graham Norton Show, of course.

While I was recovering from the wisdom teeth, I had some time to peruse the Internet just like the good old days. I can't quite remember how I found it, although it may have been from any of the magazines I was reading last week: Lucky, Glamour, or Allure, but I came across a website called Don't worry, it's nothing like MySpace... no creepy stalkers or strippers.

The idea behind is that you enter all of your measurements and it assigns you a shape associated with a letter. M Y S H A P E, I know tricky... I happen to be an S, so now their online store recommends clothes to fit your shape. The concept reminds me of a book that I love called The Science of Sexy. The book is along the same lines but you select your shape based on visual representations, then it offers you celebrities with the same shape, and fashion do's and don'ts. I highly recommend checking them both out! The take the work out of dressing well to look good! It's just too bad that they don't iron for you as well.

Diary of a Wisdom Tooth Extraction

First of all, make that 4 wisdom teeth. There's a big difference there...

Day One- pain is fine as soon as vicodin kicks in, spend the day watching Laguna Beach Season 1 re-runs. Go to bed feeling like a million bucks.

Day Two- Oww.. this isn't fun. Pop some more vicodin. Starting to resemble a chipmunk now. Sleep, mashed potatoes, and jello followed by a National Geographic on Malaria, and all of the Women's Wear Dailies that I haven't read over the past 2 weeks. Matt's poker boys come over, I retire to my bed. Wake up and stay up until Matt comes to bed at 2.

Day Three- Wake up feeling icky and eat some jello. Wake up at 6 because all pain meds have worn off and try to eat jello so I can take some more. Peach jello reemerges minutes later and I have to resort to advil instead. Try to get up at 10 and eat yogurt so I can re-vic. It finally kicks in and I can sleep. Rest of the afternoon consists of Devil Wears Prada, Britcoms (Footballers Wives and Hollyoakes), Live Earth, and more WWD. More mashed potatoes, less jello.

Hip-Hopopotamus vs. The Rhymenocerous

This is so funny! If you've ever seen Flight of the Conchords you'll know what I'm talking about. Well, the truth is, like The Office, you either love the weird humor or you don't.

IcCa484 (8:50:34 PM): ok that was slightly ridiculous
jem415 (8:51:00 PM): hahah well you're taking it out of context!
IcCa484 (8:51:14 PM): ohhh
IcCa484 (8:51:15 PM): right
IcCa484 (8:51:33 PM): because within some sort of a context it wouldn't be slightly ridiculous??
jem415 (8:52:10 PM): oh I'll give you slightly
jem415 (8:52:33 PM): actually, now that I think about it.. it's more ridiculous when you put it in context
jem415 (8:52:52 PM): you see... they're getting mugged in NYC and he has just handed over his homemade camera phone
IcCa484 (8:54:00 PM): ohh
IcCa484 (8:54:01 PM): haha
jem415 (8:54:12 PM): you really want to see it now don't you
IcCa484 (8:54:25 PM): oh yeah
IcCa484 (8:54:29 PM): you know it
