Dear Alec Baldwin (again)…

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

I’ll admit it, I have a huge crush on Alec Baldwin.  He’s sexy, funny, seemingly smart and a total asshole.  And as we all know, chicks love assholes.  Furthermore, occasionally he takes one for the team and stands up for the every man.  Like yesterday when he got thrown off an American Airlines flight because he was in the middle of a game of Words With Friends and wouldn’t turn off his phone.

Here are some facts:
1.  There is no way in hell a little iPhone game has any effect on a plane’s navigation or operating system.
2.  I’m actually not sure about fact #1, but really, is there any way an iPhone game throws off a plane?  NO.
3.  I guess I shouldn’t have started a list of facts if I didn’t have more to offer than #1 and #2.  But come on… there’s NO FREAKING WAY.

So thank you, Alec.  Thanks for bucking the system.  Words With Friends fanatics everywhere applaud you!

Dear Chevy Chase…

I’ve been in my hometown of Erie, Pennsylvania for Christmas for the past four days.  In those four days, my family has watched National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation four times.  It’s become a daily ritual, sort of like my mom complaining that she doesn’t know how to use her iPhone or me eating a block of cheese.  Between Christmas Vacation and Scrabble, my family is able to enjoy the holiday season without fights, awkward silence or discussions about why I’m still living in Los Angeles, not creating grandkids… now that’s what I call a Christmas miracle.
