The Hump List: Yuletide Edition

Fictional-men

The reason the Hump List needs to be updated a couple times a year isn't because my tastes change, it's more like, "Out of sight, out of mind." If I haven't seen a humpee in a movie or on TV in awhile, I tend to forget about him.

Have you never heard of a Hump List? It goes by several names. I used to call it the Freebie List, but I prefer the more vulgar Hump List. I'm a classy, classy lady. This is a list of the five celebrities with whom my husband will allow me to have sex, should the opportunity arise. I like to pretend that, since I live in Southern California and I have friends who are actors and producers, this might actually happen one day. That is why I am so diligent about having an up-to-date list.

Still Not Live Blogging American Idol: Top 7 Results

But I am watching it right now. Why is Anoop in the bottom three again? Is it because he is Indian? Rude!

Oh, good, he's safe, so it is down the Lil and Matt. Based on motherfucking Yahoo's blaring headline "Did a judges favorite get sent home?" I am guessing that Lil is out. Even if it weren't for motherfucking Yahoo, I'd be hoping it was her and not Matt. I feel like the judges have been clear and consistent in their feedback to her and she just doesn't get it or hasn't listened.

The judges finally used their save and it was on Matt. I can't say I am surprised, but I am definitely happy about it. It really should have been Lil going home tonight.

I really, truly, sincerely hope that the top two are not Danny and Allison. I am so over both of them.


The AIG Bonus "Scandal"

Getting mad at AIG is like getting mad at your small child for eating the entire candy bar your father-in-law gave her. Maybe you should focus your outrage on the person who gave your kid the candy bar with no instruction about how to consume it.

AIG asked for money. The government gave AIG money. AIG is spending the money. That's pretty much all there is to the story. If you're pissed about how AIG is spending the money, you should be pissed at the government for not putting any restrictions on AIG when the government handed over the money.


DVD Reviews:
Definitely, Maybe and The Brave One

I had planned to do a full movie review for each of these but, [blah, blah, blah, excuse, excuse, excuse].  We recently watched these DVDs and I thought they were great. Fantastic. Worth watching.

DefinitelyDefinitely, Maybe

I should preface this opinion by letting you know that I love romantic comedies. On the one hand, that means I was predisposed to like Definitely, Maybe starring Ryan Reynolds and Abigail Breslin. On the other hand, that also means I know a good one when I see one. Definitely, Maybe is sweet, touching and funny. It isn't the usual romantic comedy, but it still delivers everything you expect in one.

BraveThe Brave One

I LOVE when bad guys are shot/punched/stabbed/clotheslined/waterboarded by good guys. I LOVE vigilante justice. I LOVE badassery. This movie had all of that along with excellent screenwriting, which focused on story and character. Amazingly, it did not have gratuitous violence. Jodie Foster was impeccable and I have new respect for Terrence Howard.
