Month: April 2006

DARN YOU, FACEBOOK!!!!

I just wasted like 10 minutes of my life because Facebook decided to hate me. I tried to add one quote and then it told me it was too long and ‘automatically shortened it’ cutting off more than half of my quotes. So I had to do surgery so that I could get the best ones in. Dangit. Nobody else say anything funny or profound, because there’s no room for you.

Is this a joke?

I got this from the Adult Swim web site.

Saved By the Bell – Back In Production!
04/19/2006

Adult Swim has done it again! Following hot on the heels of Fox’s Family Guy, Saved By The Bell has been pulled from cancellation with an order for 30 all new episodes taking place at Bayside High.

“We were ecstatic when we saw the early numbers on Saved By the Bell on Adult Swim,” said Matt Laster, the VP of Turner Entertainment’s newly created 80’s Reclamation Department. “We knew this had the potential to be big, but we never thought it would be this big. The fans have really shown their support and come out in droves on the adultswim.com website.”

According to Laster, the new series is still in development but he did say that almost all of the original cast would be returning, minus “Showgirls” star Elizabeth Berkley. The series will follow the events after Saved By the Bell: The New Class and find Screech as the new principal of Bayside and a retired Mr. Belding as the proprietor of the Max, the hangout that the Saved By the Bell gang frequented. Screech is overwhelmed by the new group of students and puts out a call for help, and soon, all of the old regulars are back at Bayside. Laster would not elaborate on the status of Zack and Kelly’s relationship, though the couple were last seen walking down the aisle.

“I’ve spoken to the crew and they really can’t wait to get back together,” said Laster. “We think this will be a fun and exciting new direction for Adult Swim and we can’t wait to find even more great 80’s comedies for Adult Swim.”

EDIT

Sorry, Screech — ‘Saved By The Bell’ Isn’t Coming Back

‘Official’ statement boasting a revived show with original cast is a hoax.

It’s been a pretty divisive month for fans of Master Shake and Zack Morris, and you can blame it all on the people behind Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim.

Everything was fine until the programmers at Swim — Cartoon Network’s nightly block

Adult ComedyAdult Comedy

of alternative ‘toons — decided to pluck “Saved by the Bell” from syndicated limbo and add it to their weekly lineup. The move was greeted with the ire of Swim’s loyal fanbase (sample reactions on the Adult Swim message board: “This had better be a joke … or there’ll be a jihad for the next two weeks!” and “We’re one step closer to getting ‘Murder She Wrote.’ … Excellent move”).

Randomly selected episodes of “Bell” — a Saturday morning staple on NBC from 1989-’93 — began airing April 17 and are scheduled to wrap up this week with the broadcast of the epic “Snow White and the Seven Dorks” ep, where the gang at Bayside High puts together a hip-hop version of “Snow White.”

Reacting to viewer feedback, Adult Swim decided to take things to the next level. On April 19, the network released a statement claiming “Saved by the Bell” was headed back into production, with Cartoon Network ordering 30 new episodes of the show. According to Matt Laster (identified in the statement as “the VP of Turner Entertainment’s newly created ’80s Reclamation Department”), most of the original cast was already on board for the new edition of “Bell.”

“The series will follow the events after ‘Saved by the Bell: The New Class’ and finds Screech as the new principal of Bayside [with] a retired Mr. Belding as the proprietor of the Max, the hangout that the ‘Saved by the Bell’ gang frequented,” the statement read. “Screech is overwhelmed by the new group of students and puts out a call for help, and soon all of the old regulars are back at Bayside.”

Of course, news of the resurrected “Saved by the Bell” quickly made its way around the Internet, showing up on sites as diverse as Celebrity-Moms.com and the online home of Boston’s long-running Phoenix alt-weekly.

Most seemed to greet the news with cautious optimism — after all, several castmembers have gone on to bigger and better things (Mark-Paul Gosselaar, who played Zack, has logged time on “NYPD Blue” and “Commander in Chief”), or at least just bigger things (Elizabeth Berkley, who played brainy Jessie Spano, starred in “Showgirls”). It seemed unlikely that they’d choose to revisit roles they left more than a decade ago. Also, Laster’s title seemed to reek of fakery, and it was Adult Swim, which seemed capable of pulling off a prank of this magnitude.

It turns out the whole announcement was nothing more than that: a really big joke. According to James Anderson, the vice president of public relations for Adult Swim, there are no plans to bring “Bell” back. And while Matt Laster is an actual Swim employee, he’s not the VP of anything.

“The whole thing is just the people behind Adult Swim being who they are. When ‘Saved by the Bell’ first started airing, it created such a divide between [Adult Swim] fans that the people here had to make a joke about it,” Anderson laughed. ” ‘Saved by the Bell’ is not coming back. We’re not going to do that. It was just the people here being blasphemous.”

Somewhere, Dustin “Screech” Diamond quietly weeps.

Haha I was right. And I am glad they are making the search better because I hate the new search as well.

Also, my new favorite quote “He has this amazing hairless body. It’s like hooking up with a seal.”

And also I had a dream the other day that they got rid of the el. At first they were just going to get rid of the purple line but then they decided to get rid of all of them and I was walking along the tracks as they were destroying it and there were giant gaps everywhere. It was so scary.

Kari has a code word that she puts on the dry ewrase board when she is having sex so I won’t walk in on it. So I put it up right as I was leaving just to mess with them so they would be standing in the hall knocking on the door forever cuz I wouldn’t be there to answer haha. Unfortunately they got back literally just as I was, so it didn’t work. I told them though. Dang it would have been good.

Eew earlier I heard Kari and Jon in the hall and Jon said in a flirty voice “are you alone in there?” and then he came in and was playing with a condom. Totally did not need to be around for any of that. I only have eight nights left here though, thank God. Eight crazy nights…

I just failed a couple classes and I don’t even care. Yesterday I was stressed out and ready to drop out of school, but today I just don’t care. One of the classes was with the intern coordinator. Well if this is rally what god wants me to do it will work out no matter how much I mess up. I don’t know if I can take four more years of school…

So if you have dinner with Josh and you get up from the table, you will return to something in your drink, usually salt, cinnamon sugar, cheese, or a grape. So last week I get up for like three seconds, watching him the entire time, and he puts a pepper shaker in my water. I have a picture of it on my phone but still, after a week, it will not send. So I decided just to write about it now.

Still haven’t heard back about Conan tickets. My Dad did though yesterday. But you have to wait in line all day and it’s my first day back to work. We are going to New York in July so we can just go see his show there.

The main reason I am writing is in regards to American Idol. I think this is the first year the top 6 is full of people who don’t suck. I would, however, like to see Elliott go home tonight. This is what I am thinking:

Elliott goes home tonight.
Paris goes home next week, because she doesn’t need this show.
Katharine goes home after that. i know everyone I watch with really likes her, but I am not a fan.
Kellie Pickler will be the next one to go home after Katharine.
The finale will be Taylor and Chris and Chris will probably win.

I like to pretend that I don’t need the Facebook birthday reminder because I remember certain peoples’ birthdays on my own, but I forget to take into account that I can never remember what day it is. So basically I just left a happy birthday voicemail for Ari 24 hours earlier than I should have, plus forgot that it was actually Marni’s birthday and not his. Note to self: ALWAYS pay attention to Facebook birthday reminders. OOPS!

I think I am finally almost better, but I think going out a little bit this weekend when I was feeling better didn’t help. Still have the cough and have to take Tessalon Perles for it, although it is not anywhere near as bad as it was. My speech teacher wants me to get notes from all of my teachers saying I have missed their classes too because he thinks I have been blowing off his class. Well I haven’t really been going to my other classes either. Because I have been SICK.

When I was home last week Marni yelled at me for ‘faking sick.’ Yup I always go to the emergency room when I fake sick…*rolls eyes*

I randomly heard from Amanda Noble the other day. She wants to hang out when I get home. I guarantee no good will come from this.

When my AIM was broken right before spring break I was on AOL and I realised that the random clips of songs and noises I was hearing was people changed their IM sounds to other things and I can hear it on AOL (but not AIM, thank God). I think it’s really obnoxious so I had to find the most obnoxious sound I could find (but not Ashlee Simpson, because that is TOO obnoxious), so I found a donkey sound. It was the same donkey sound from the Hanukkah Harry sketch. Well I didn’t realise people on AIM could hear it too, and as soon as I found out they could, I took it down. So for anybody on AIM that had to deal with that, I apologise. Had I known you could hear it on AIM I wouldn’t have done that.

I saw a street in Libertyville called Nathan LN. I want to live on a street called Nathan LN. That is amazing.

I really feel like everytime I leave the room Kari and Jon have sex in it. It’s getting more and more frequent, including in the afternoons now and it’s really aggravating. Well I’m moving out in 10 days, and not a moment too soon. What’s funny is I saw Lauren today and she must have been sick because not only did she say hi to me she asked me how I was and how my semester is going and usually she’ll look at me and look the other way. but it’s funny because I complained to her about Kari haha.

I had my first karaoke experience the other ay. Unfortunately I have an mp3 AND a video to prove it. I’m so dumb cuz I drank a can of Mountain Dew right beforehand so I sound like crap.

Heidi’s wedding shower was Saturday. I was unable to get her a present while I was home because I was too sick to leave the house, so I had my Mom get one for her. I just picked one off of the registry—shower curtain. So when I was filling out the card the other day it hit me…shower…shower…so I wrote on the card “Now you can REALLY have a shower.” One of the games was Vicky and Ali had asked Ryan a bunch of questions about himself and then they asked Heidi and for every question she got wrong she had to stick another piece of Bubblicious in her mouth. She got several of them wrong, as you can see here:

But the questions were like “How many books is Ryan reading right now and what are their titles?” and “What is Ryan’s Dad’s middle name?” and “How many pairs of shoes does Ryan own?” They were crazy. I was like man am I going to have to know all these things when i get married? I don’t even know how many pairs of shoes I own!

This weekend was also the ridiculous outfit party. The cops showed up cuz the music was too loud. Then the DJ said “I bet this is the first time most of you have had the cops called on you.” Here are some pics:


Danielle, Melissa, me. I think I was not ready for this picture to be taken. And I dressed Danielle.


Me and Mike. If you can’t tell, his shirt says “whole,” “skim,” and “soy.” It was better when he also had a skirt on. I was laughing because he told me I should make it look like I was milking him.

They had a Lunchbox Voodoo/Hello Dali show tonight. Hello Dali is the improv group which keeps sending me info about auditions, but I’m not sure if I want to get back into that, because I’m so rusty, and also because college students shout out inappropriate suggestions that I would not like to be in scenes about…But it was great because they had some people from Lunchbox do an improv game and some people from Hello Dali do a sketch that they wrote and the Lunchbox people were so lost and were like “This isn’t how they said it was going to be!!!” It reminded me of when we did our ComedySportz musical and it was so bad because none of us were used to scripts. My sketch still was not in the show but mike PROMISED me it will be in one of the shows next year. Oooookay…

So I called Rainforest the other day. Luckily Chris is on vacation, so I got to talk to Kevin..
Kevin: Hi, Jami Robins, what are you doing right now?
Jami: I’m in my room talking to you.
Kevin: Get out!
Jami: No, really.
Kevin: Get out!
Jami: I am coming home this summer and I was wondering if I could come back to work.
Kevin: You know you can.
Jami: Well Chris always tells me she has to check to see if I can.
Kevin: *laughs*

Yeah that’s what I though.

Last week on SNL they had a sketch that made fun of the volcano. And okay the restaurant wasn’t Rainforest Cafe and they called it “chocolate vesuvius,” but still. It is still a dessert that they sell at the restaurant that i work at and it was great because the whole sketch was just about eating it haha.

They also showed this on SNL and it is great.


You Are a Blue Flower


A blue flower tends to represent peace, openness, and balance.

At times, you are very delicate like a cornflower.

And at other times, you are wise like an iris.

And more than you wish, you’re a little cold, like a blue hydrangea.


You Are Sunrise


You enjoy living a slow, fulfilling life. You enjoy living every moment, no matter how ordinary.

You are a person of reflection and meditation. You start and end every day by looking inward.

Caring and giving, you enjoy making people happy. You’re often cooking for friends or buying them gifts.

All in all, you know how to love life for what it is – not for how it should be.


You Are Apple Red


You’re never one to take life too seriously, and because of it, you’re a ton of fun.

And although you have a great sense of humor, you are never superficial.

Deep and caring, you do like to get to the core of people – to understand them well.

However, any probing you do is light hearted and fun, sometimes causing people to misjudge you.
