Hate Mail

Posted in Guilty Pleasures, Must See TV, Rants at 8:34 am by Faith

In order to decompress from some of my pending Bar-Exam stress, I’ve been streaming old episodes of Celebrity Fit Club 5. I just got done watching the season finale during a break today. All I can really say about it is this (and I’m fully aware I’m something like 2 months late with this observation)…

Screech, (oh, I’m sorry… DUSTIN DIAMOND) you are the BIGGEST DOUCHEBAG I have ever seen in all my years. And I’ve met my fair share of douchebags. You constantly amaze me at the lengths you’ll go to in order to extend your 15 minutes of fame. From your “leaked” sex tape (yeah, we ALL know that YOU leaked it… the only one proud of that nasty schlong is you…) to your “Save My House From Foreclosure” campaign (which in itself was majorly tacky, especially considering that my sources tell me you weren’t even CLOSE to losing your house and the whole thing was just a publicity stunt), to your proclamations that you were “THE STAR” of Celebrity Fit Club 5… I’ve never seen such a publicity whore SO DESPERATE for attention.

There’s a reason that you were the only cast member to be in ALL of the Saved by the Bell spin-offs: It’s because you’re annoying, a sub-par actor, and frankly, no one wants to see your ugly mug anymore.

I didn’t even start watching CFC because of you. I watched because it thought it would be fun to see Marcia from The Brady Bunch… and because my brother listens to quite a bit of Cledus T. Judd‘s work… and because even though I was a die-hard Claymate, I also rooted for Kimberely Locke on American Idol 2. And who in the hell can forget Tiffany, Da Brat, and Warren G… all musicians who had pretty big hits during my “generation.” Who the hell were YOU? Some lame ass loser from an annoying Saturday morning television show. Yep, you were the star, all right. (In all fairness, I had NO clue who Ross Matthews was. But he came across better than you did on camera.) You said more annoying things and showed such poor judgment that I was left speechless on more than one occasion. If you dropped dead tomorrow, I would not shed a tear. Please kindly piss off.

Hugs and kisses,

Faith

P.S. I also find it incredibly amusing that you have been the only celebrity on record to lose a domain name dispute to a PARODY site. That, in itself, says everything that needs to be said. The parody site, by the way, ROCKS.

A Good Cry

Posted in Guilty Pleasures, Must See TV at 8:12 am by Faith

So, it’s a little-known secret (well, not so little among my group of friends) that I Tivo Dawson’s Creek every morning. The beauty of Tivo is that I don’t necessarily HAVE to watch it every day. As I’ve been super busy lately, I’ve been stockpiling the episodes and then sit down and have a little mini-marathon.

I didn’t see the series finale of Dawson’s Creek when it originally aired. This was mainly because I was pissed off back in the day that Joey chose Pacey over Dawson (what was that? The end of Season Three?) Subsequently, I swore off the show. Fast forward quite a few years. Dawson’s Creek is now enjoying a daily morning run on TBS, one of the few GOOD cable channels I get. Therefore, it makes sense that I naturally began Tivoing it.

I just got done watching the series finale. Personally, I’ve been disappointed with series finales, for the most part. THIS one was very different. I didn’t expect it to be so poignant and touching. I didn’t expect it to make me cry buckets. I didn’t expect it to be as good as it was. I didn’t expect to have one of those good “girly cry sessions.” So, to Kevin Williamson and the cast of Dawson’s Creek, I say thank you.

….and did anyone else find it HILARIOUS that Deputy Doug really DID end up being gay?!? I love it….

“Word, Cotton!”

Posted in Guilty Pleasures, Must See TV, Obsessions, Rants at 8:15 am by Faith

I’m not a big fan of this strip, but I thought that FOR ONCE, the artist and I were on the same page:

The rumor has it that the fan campaigns have not worked. The show is “dead,” in the words of it’s creator.

Screw you, The CW.

F***ing Awesome!

Posted in Friends, Guilty Pleasures, Must See TV, Obsessions, Random at 2:20 pm by Faith

I saw my friend Marilyn for the first time since graduating from grad school. She and I have been friends since BEFORE either of us got into grad school. She was two years ahead of me, but we kept in touch (as we were supremely close before she graduated from grad school and got a grown-up job and all.)

Anyway… her present to me hit the nail RIGHT on its head. Observe:

For those of you Buffy, the Vampire Slayer geeks in the audience, yes, it’s a FAITH action figure! Not only is the Faith action figure, it’s the “Graduation Day” action figure! (On my list as one of my favorite episodes of Buffy… EVER.) My only beef is that it looks NOTHING like Eliza Dushku, who played Faith. You may be familiar with her look by now:

Despite that, I do have to say just ONE thing. She could not have gotten me a better graduation gift. Simply put, old friends are not JUST the best friends. Old friends f****n’ RULE!

Thanks, Marilyn! 😀

Hooray for Boobies!

Posted in Guilty Pleasures, Hotties, Life at 8:15 am by Faith

I’ve said before that I’ve used my feminine charms in order to get things. Yeah, some may argue that I’m setting the women’s movement back through such actions. The sad part is… I really don’t care for such arguments. If flirting gives me what I want in exchange for making the other party feel good about themselves, then I don’t see where the harm is.

This REALLY rings true in the case of my Cable Guy. When I FIRST got cable, I flirted with him and got free premium channels. When I moved a year later, I got the same cable guy who gave me the same hookups at my new location (yes, there was mutual flirting here, too.) Fast-forward a year and a half: My mailman (who will be the topic of some hate blogging later) lost my cable payment, which resulted in my cable being disconnected before the Memorial Day weekend. I went in and paid the bill in person the same day the service was disconnected and made arrangements for my Internet to be connected again. However, due to the fact that my cable provider is merging with a satellite provider, they informed me that they would not be reconnecting my cable. I was okay with this, as I use the Internet WAY more than I watch TV. However, the downside was that the Internet reconnecting wouldn’t happen for at least a week or two.

In any case, I was headed out the door yesterday when I ran into said Cable Guy in my parking lot. He was on a service call to my neighbor’s house, but recognized me and talked to me for a few moments while I was standing near my car. After a few minutes of friendly chatting, I breached the topic:

Faith: Hey, if you get a spare minute and can reconnect my Internet, I’d be REALLY appreciative.
Cable Guy: You got disconnected?
Faith: Yeah. Long story. My mailman sucks. (laughing)
Cable Guy: I see…
Faith: When I went in and paid the bill, they told me that they’d get my internet reconnected, but it didn’t happen. (strategically leans against her open car door, pressing her chest forward slightly)
Cable Guy: (looking at Faith’s chest) I can definitely get that done for you this afternoon.
Faith: (smiling and straightening up) Thanks! You are a rock star!
Cable Guy: (smiling back) No problem, Faith. Have a great night.

When I got home last night, I was pleased to see that all lights on my modem were on, indicating that we were back to business as usual over at Casa de Faith. Out of morbid curiosity, I decided to flip on my TV to see if they had reconnected my cable, even though they told me it was impossible to do so. THE CABLE GUY RECONNECTED MY CABLE AS WELL, INCLUDING ALL THE PREMIUM CHANNELS.

Thank GOD I was wearing a low-cut tank top yesterday….

NOTE: I cannot get over how fast this new connection is. Moral of the story, kiddies? Always, always, ALWAYS flirt with your cable provider. 🙂

….and Another One For My Homie…

Another one bites the dust.

We here at Faith’s Ambition would like to take a moment to mourn the loss of yet another great television show that’s being pulled before it’s time. Yesterday, The CW announced that it was canceling Veronica Mars.

Veronica Mars is off the air, yet crap like One Tree Hill is renewed for another yet another season of crap? *shaking head* I guess it really IS true what they say. Americans are idiots.

Going All In…

Posted in Guilty Pleasures, Love, Must See TV at 1:35 am by Faith

We all know that I LOVE Veronica Mars. For those of you that haven’t been watching, SHAME ON YOU! Veronica Mars is one of the best-written TV shows I’ve seen in a long time. I’ll admit that I was a little worried about the show when it made the switch from UPN over to The CW, but I think that it hasn’t missed a beat. (Note to show execs: Cancel this show and I’ll be PISSED.)

Anyway… was anyone ELSE cheering when Piz planted that huge kiss on Veronica as she was telling him that she only wanted to be friends? (Piz has harbored a HUGE crush on Veronica the entire third season. He made a move on Veronica due to a pep-talk his roommate gave him, telling him that sometimes everyone needs to go “all in.”) The reaction to the kiss was golden. Piz smiled and said, “Just friends, I get it,” and turned around to leave. As he was leaving, he ran into his roommate who asked him what happened. Piz smiled and said, “I went all in.”

Note to Veronica: DO NOT HURT THIS BOY. He’s completely WON me over. I was initially annoyed with the idea of him as a love interest for you. Not anymore. Piz is a keeper. He will treat you like a princess. He will not cheat on you. DO NOT HURT HIM.

Note to any readers that may want to ask Faith out: Guys, it’s totally sexy to “go all in” from time to time. I like boys who take the initiative.

See it for yourself here:

Club Faith (aka The Rhythm IS Gonna Get Ya!)

Posted in Guilty Pleasures, Life, Random, Slacking at 10:26 am by Faith

I absolutely freakin’ LOVE the PartyShuffle feature on iTunes. I’m in the process of a major last minute cram session for a class that I kinda slept through all semester (okay, to be fair, I didn’t sleep through the class… but I did send an awful lot of e-mail and IM’ed everyone’s favorite roadway a LOT from this class. And that’s not mentioning all the online tokens I won from my internet gaming habit, fueled by boredom FROM this class.)

Obnoxious Officemate probably wants my head on a stick right about now. I’m pretty sure I’ve got the music coming from a NOT-SO-reasonable volume from the headphones… and if you watch me long enough, I might actually do a form of the cabbage patch from my office chair. (When Kitrah gets here, I’m going to be her hero. We’ve been doing this passive-aggressive thing with our officemate all year. It’s been coming to a head as finals approach.)

Anyway… anyone think that Obnoxious Officemate would object if I transformed our office into a Coyote Ugly bar? The first round of drinks would obviously be on me…

Real blog post later, when Final for Today has concluded. Lots to share….

(UPDATE (11:05AM): Obnoxious Officemate’s reaction to Club Faith? HE’S GETTING LOUDER… All right, Obnoxious Officemate. Game On. It’s SOOOOO ON.)
