I am in a very strange mood. I've been at work all day, I come home and spend like, two hours with my newest obsession (which I am so not revealing due to major tv show embarrassment...haha), and had the urge to dig up my very favorite (well, ONE of my very favorite) West Wing quote. I love Leo. I really, really do. And Sam too, but that goes without saying, because hello? Rob Lowe!

[From: The West Wing -Ep 1.5--The Crackpots and These Women]

LEO:
Andrew Jackson, in the main foyer of his White House had a big block of
cheese.

TOBY:
Hmmm.

[Cathy and others muffle laughs]

LEO:
I am making a mental list of those who are snickering, and even as I speak
I'm preparing appropriate retribution. [beat] The block of cheese was huge--over two tons. And it was there for any and all who might be hungry.

TOBY:
Leo, wouldn't this time be better spent plotting a war against a country
that can't possibly defend itself against us?

LEO:
We can do that later, Toby. Right now I'm talking about President Andrew
Jackson.

SAM:
Actually, right now, you're talking about a big block of cheese.

LEO:
And Sam goes on my list!

SAM:
What about Toby?

LEO:
I'm unpredictable. [beat] Jackson wanted the White House to belong to the
people, so from time to time, he opened his doors to those who wished an audience.

MANDY:
And then he locked the doors behind them and made them eat two tons of cheese.

LEO:
It is in that spirit...

SAM:
Hang on. Mandy doesn't go on the list?

LEO:
Mandy's new.

SAM:
So it's just me... on the list?

LEO:
Yes. It is in the spirit of Andrew Jackson that I, from time to time, ask
senior staff to have face-to-face meetings with those people representing
organizations who have a difficult time getting our attention. [beat] I know the more jaded among you, see this as something rather beneath you. But I assure you that listening to the voices of passionate Americans is beneath no one, and surely not the peoples' servants.

JOSH:
[walks in with C.J.] Sorry, we're late. Is it 'Total Crackpot Day' again?

LEO:
Yes, it is.

SAM:
And let us please note that Josh does not go on the list.


Ahahhaa. It still makes me giggle. Back to my new obsession, and back to loving and adoring the new Josh Kelley album. Which I will totally gush over coming soon. Josh is--oh, he's fabulous. Meep. Good night.

I seriously love living in a city that has one of the best concert venues in the entire country. 2007 is shaping up to be yet another awesome concert year. I've already had Justin Timberlake in January, I've got Josh Groban in April, and Keith Urban in June. And I just happened to be browsing the John Mayer website this morning, and saw the Continuum Summer tour dates had been announced, and bam, there's Fresno slated for June 6th. ONE WEEK before Keith! I'm completely over the moon. I had to call the mom and squeal. She's a Local-83 member, so we get presale at some point. Eeeee! Mayer! Twice in two years! So excited.

Have had the weekend off, which has been nice. The parents and I went to the outlets in Tulare yesterday, which was fun. Did some shopping and only spent $60. Woo. Then we ended up at the Cingular store, upgrading my cell phone to a new, shiny red SYNC phone. I'm affectionately naming it Tony. Haha.So I have a new phone, and I already downloaded a new ringtone for it. I had to have "Stupid Boy" by Keith Urban for it. Heh. I miss my "Vultures" tone, so I may have to shell out for that one again.

Been on a SportsNight kick again. I can never get enough of those DVDs. I still like picking out lines that Sorkin used on The West Wing after SN ended. And seeing all the bit players on SN that ended up on TWW. Janel being the most noteworthy. Heh. Speaking of TWW, the new TV Guide that had Rob Lowe on the cover? Gorgeous. He's so lovely.

The rain is starting to get on my nerves. When it makes my shoulder ache for hours, it's not cool. Age 25, and I'm falling apart. Very bad. While we definitely need the rain, it still sucks.

Oscar night! Woo! Will be sitting with my popcorn watching tonight. I have seen very few of the films and such, but it'll still be fun.

Have a good day!

Thank goodness the prompt for [livejournal.com profile] fic_variations seems to be one I can tolerate. Whee! I was really hoping for grief, but this prompt of Laugh/Laughter is good for me. Josh is so going to cooperate with me, and I think I might try for 10 fics this time. We'll see. I tend to like my long-winded fics, though, and the five 500 word fics will probably take over my brain anyway. I do love writing angst, after all.

Am now free for the weekend! Hooray. Went to Kohl's this evening and bought myself shoes. Shiny red patent Candies ballet flats, and a pair of bright pink beaded sandals for like, 5 bucks. Can't complain there! Also paid some bills and wrote my rent check. Joy. Bye bye, $775! Heh.

Leg is still bothering me, and I'm vexed by it. May end up soaking in a hot bath later, if I don't get too lazy. But I hope the tight feeling goes away soon, because it actually feels funny to walk on.

Woo! Go Bulldogs! Way to beat the Wolf Pack tonight, boys! Whee! Great way to start out WAC league play. Heee.


Off to start on my Josh fics. Need to watch a few good Josh eps to get his voice settled in my head before I really start writing. I WILL get the fics done on time, dang it!

Good night.

Woohoo!

So really, I was overly pleased about the Emmys tonight. Hugh Laurie was absolutely adorable, and Brad Whitford and Matthew Perry made me giggle madly, as did Martin Sheen onstage with his son Charlie. Allison Janney looked gorgeous as usual. Some of the overall winners made me go "huh?!" a few times, but oh well. Yay for Alan Alda, though. Was pleased about that.

I am so not ashamed that I burst into tears during the In Memoriam segment, when John Spencer appeared on the screen. Freakin' bawled, man. Sheesh. Even though I knew they'd have to show him, it still hurt. Gah.

And randomly? I am rather tickled that ABC is using Rob Thomas' "Streetcorner Symphony" as one of their theme songs. So awesome.

Listened to the stream of John Mayer's new album "Continuum", and I'm in love. I can't wait to get my CD in a week or so, as my mom pre-ordered two copies through Local-83, along with the fan package, so yay, way excited for that! Mayer concert is in a month too! Hooray!

Also am addicted to the new Keith Urban song. "Once In A Lifetime" is awesome, and he sounds so good and so happy. I love that.

Have officially named the new computer Leo now. I couldn't not name it that, although naming it Flack came very, very close. Heh.

Work is a bit stressful again, and our asst. manager is still incompetent. I really don't know how much longer I can take working with her, and I hate saying that. I know I need to suck it up a bit more, but it's hard to deal with people who have no idea what they are doing even after countless hours of coaching and teaching and telling, for the love of everything holy!

Gah. I need to digress again. Sigh. I'm off to be productive or something. I've had a litt;e Josh/Sam friendship drabble thing in my head for the past couple of days--post S4's "Red Haven's On Fire". Huh.

Good night.

Hee!
