I Am So Thirty

Deb walked into the studio this morning with 24 hamburger buns. Why? Deb had a kegger at her house last night. We know, on a Tuesday, she’s wild. It was a birthday party for her softball coach that, at the last minute, ended up being hosted at her house. They had a really nice barbecue and a keg, and Deb only knew three people out of about 30. It turns out, that was awesome! It’s a lot of work when you have a party with a bunch of friends and have to talk to all of them, so from now on she’s only having parties with people she doesn’t know. She’s going to start going onto other people’s Facebook friends’ lists and inviting people from there. Genius.
Wednesdays we shine a light on That Guy, that guy — or girl — that does something douchey and either doesn’t realize it or doesn’t apologize for it. Today Jason called out Goes For Laughs In The Movie Theater Guy, AKA Producer Nick. A couple years ago, Jason and Nick saw one of the Twilight movies together. The one thing Jason remembers from the movie, is the first time Jacob takes off his shirt and asks Bella what she’s looking at, Nick yells in the theater, “Your pecs!” and got a big laugh in the theater. That was funny, but last night he saw Battleship, and had a lot of material prepared to try and get some laughs from the audience.
Yesterday, Producer Nick was telling us how his car needed to be repaired and he needed a new iPhone, and him and Jason decided it would be perfectly acceptable for Nick to start a GoFundMe page to raise money. Nick came into work having set up the page yesterday, with a reasonably modest goal of $800. It’s worth checking out the page just to read his description of the car, but if you donate Deb will be mad.
YOU AUTO-COMPLETE ME:
Google will suggest some interesting things when you start typing in your search, and we made a game out of it, aptly named the Google Game (or “You Auto-Complete Me,” if you prefer). They both started off strong, each getting a point for Jake Gyllenhaal and quarter points for Charles Barkley. Neither got drinking games, which made Jason feel old. Nick threw off the game by not saving “Why don’t I have…” for last, but Deb still got a quarter point with “a girlfriend.” Jason got a quarter point for Amy Adams, but Deb got another point and the win for Amy Winehouse.
I LOVE YOU CALL:
At 8:50 Deb calls a random business and tries to get the person answering the phone to say, “I love you.” Today Deb called Rag-o-rama in Orlando, since she’s trying to raise some money to help out her friend Nick fix his car. Deb asked Josh if they would buy her designer jeans because other stores haven’t taken them, and her told her not to take it personally. It may have been the least enthusiastic I Love You in the history of the I Love You call, but she got it.
PET OF THE WEEK:
Every week we feature a lovely adoptable dog. This week we're looking for a home for Billie. She's a very sweet puppy whose jaw and pelvis were broken. She’s having surgery on her pelvis and has already had surgery on her jaw, which will be wired shut for 6 weeks while it heals. If you’re interested in adopting Billie, email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. While you’re at it go to Love-A-Bull and take a look, so we can give some other pups great new homes too.
DOES DEB KNOW STUFF:
Every day we “trivialize” Deb by asking her quiz questions, then laughing when she doesn’t know the answers. For some reason, today Deb had children’s cereal mascot trivia. Deb knew Snap, Crackle and Pop are the three cartoon elves on the Rice Crispies box and she also knew the silly rabbit is always trying to steal Trix cereal.
A man in Mississippi is posing as a police officer and pulling people over and then shooting them. Police have no suspects, so are advising people to “be careful.”
