how is it already friday?

I just had a really uncomfortable poop and I'm feeling kind of worn out. But despite my wornoutness, I feel compelled to blog (because I haven't been blogging much lately and I've been feeling guilty about that) (I know that I shouldn't feel guilty, but I still do)

I love me some Anderson Cooper (a lot), but he was subbing for Regis on Live with Regis and Kelly this morning and he acted like he didn't know what the word "couture" meant, and I just didn't buy it. I mean, I don't really know exactly what couture means either, but I know that it refers to expensive one-of-a-kind clothing, and I'm sure Anderson at least knows that much. I mean, dude gets around. Still, he was really charming. He talked about "low hanging cherries." I'm not going to say anymore about that, I'm just going to leave the context to your imagination. But Coop said the phrase "low hanging cherries" several times and it was kind of pornish.

I taught two playwriting workshops at my alma mater high school this morning, and I'm going to count that as a New Thing because I haven't written any New Thing posts in a long time and I freaking need to log in at least a couple more New Things before the end of the year. So, let's count it as New Thing #181. The kids were a lot of fun (oh, and thank you to those of you who sent me writing exercises to use with them). At the beginning of one of the workshops, we brainstormed themes and someone shouted out the word "scrotums," so we ended up with several little plays about scrotums, which was quite charming. (Speaking of low hanging cherries.)

First, and the man is Gloria Vanderbilt's son; of course he knows what couture means!

he was trying to act really butch, i think, but just in that moment.

Figures. I was going to suggest that, as well, but I've never really understood what his deal is with his outness. He's not out, right? But everyone knows, right? Or do they? Is it like an open secret kinda thing, where he's just not talking about it, or does he really try to convince people that he's not gay? It's all so confusing.

i think he used to talk about it, but then he got all "i don't talk about my personal life" (even though he talks A LOT about his personal life, i.e. about his family) and the rumor was that cnn wouldn't let him discuss it and that's why he's so mum.

but since it's essentially an open secret he's usually pretty coy and wink-winky about it, i.e. he talks about how much he loves the scissor sisters and Sweet Sixteen on MTV.

i don't know why he was trying to act butch about the couture thing though. that's why i mentioned it, because it felt so weird. esp. in light of the gloria vanderbilt son thing.

ummm a guy on Friday Night Lights said "couture" this week. Anderson is a douche!

yep, I said it. What are you gonna do about it?

Erik said...

Jesse, I'm just gonna be sad about it. Because I don't like thinking of Anderson as a douche. (Even if maybe you're right, but I will only go so far as conceding you a "maybe.")
