Ha ha ha ha. Funny people are my favorite.

In case you've not seen this, "Jane Austen's Fight Club."



I was on set all day Saturday and here's the worst thing about making Indie movies: they use people's houses that have no central A/C. SWAMP COOLERS MAKE NOISE. Audio picks up that noise and can't use the take. Solution? TURN OFF THE NOISEMAKERS. Which means that you have all of the lights blasting their heat on you, you have all of that make up on, and NO AIR. For as many takes as it takes. And in between each take, the makeup girl comes over, blots you, then puts on MOAR POWDER. I looked like Snookie when all was said and done. (But come on, I wouldn't trade it for anything, it's seriously fun to do.) The movie is really, really good, I'll say. "WUSS," and you can follow them on Twitter at @WussMovie. Today is BUSTER BLUTH DAY. (Well, Tony Hale day, but he'll always be Buster to me. LOOSE SEAL! LOOSE SEAL!! Word on set is that he is absolutely charming, sweet, and quite shy. <3)

I'm up to my eyeballs in work, so I'm behind on replying to comments, etc., and probably won't be able to catch up. Also, I bought a cat tower for the kittens, so that's taking up most of my time. LOL. Happy Monday! (And for my g33ks, this cracked me up to no end: Re-Dubbed Dune. "Man, he hit him so hard he look like a homemade tattoo!" The voices are priceless.)

I think pretzel rolls are in order today.

Jane Austen's Fight Club is hysterical. Now I want to slot every one of my favorite characters into Fight Club! I would really love Nancy Drew getting a smack down from her BFFs. Smug bitch.

No A/C? Lawdy, lawdy, why are they filming in July in Texas?

"Why are they filming in July in Texas?" We all asked the same thing. :D

Oooooh, one of those fans! What a great idea, I didn't even think of that!

I have bellowed about this elsewhere on the internets, but THAT RED VELVET CAKE IS HISTORICALLY INACCURATE. I actually found it more distracting than the sunglasses.

What mysterious objects are "pretzel rolls"?

WAIT WAIT WAIT WHAT RED VELVET CAKE?! I feel like I missed a scene in True Blood or something. HELP ME OBI WAN.

Pretzel Rolls are basically rolls you make from pretzel dough. ZOMG SEW GROOD. (Here's the recipe after the macaroni one. Crazy delicious.)

NOMMY CAKE IS AT 02:00 AND AGAIN AT 02:38.

Okay, it occurs to me that perhaps these are not crunchy pretzels with pizza inside of them after all. I AM DISAPPOINT.

THEIR ATTENTION TO DETAIL IS A FAIL, THEN. Especially the whole fight club thing.

Oooooh, there is no reason why you couldn't jam some stuff in there when you make the balls, though! OKAY NOW I HAVE TO TRY THAT. I'll make those this week and report back. My basil needs to go places!

But are they BREADY rolls or CRÖONCHY rolls?

THAT IS THE BEST PART. They are hard on the outside, soft on the inside! Steaming them in baking soda water makes them crisp up on the outside but be delightfully holey and squishity on the interior.

Incidentally, this video? Made by Mormons. (sorry about the link to the revolting and vile fb)

Wasn't that so funny??? The voices were cracking me up. Kyle MacLachlan's acting was somehow improved by the dubbing.... :D

And you hit the nail on the head. That's what makes us endure the standing still for hours in the heat.

OMG redubbed Dune! I love how Mother Gais Helen Mohaim's voice sort of goes from bad British to a Cartman-esque southern accent. :P

These are the same guys who did Return of the Sith "trailer" that never fails to make me laugh. I was in tears the first time I saw it. "A booby?"

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
