paradise found

The opening shot of In Plain Sight tonight was an aerial view of what looked like an idyllic small town, with houses and churches dotting in the greenery of the trees. I turned to the man and said "Doesn't that look lovely? We should live there."

Then this text came up on screen: Baltimore, Maryland

If you don't get the humor there, we live in Baltimore. Of course that wasn't actually Baltimore. It was probably some suburb of Los Angeles they filmed, but it was funny anyway. And in case anyone who saw the episode is wondering, an aerial shot of our town would not look that lovely.


The man was reading about local roller derby and he declared I should do it. LOL. Not a chance. I'd totally get my ass kicked. When he saw pictures of these amazonian roller derby women, he agreed and declared that my roller derby name would be "Cry Baby".

I imagine that roller derby roxy would have a derby name of "No fate"

and be like Garth from Waynes World and strap a jolt belt to herself and zap the woman that are after her.


but then I've been known to be wrong


from time to time ;)

Oh, I could just use those hand zapper things — put one on each hand and just keep touching people!

Party time. Excellent!

Roller Derby, Ellen Page, and Hard Candy
If the man has developed an Ellen Page crush / obsession after watching Juno and Whip It, you need to induce him to watch Hard Candy. He'll get over it.

Re: Roller Derby, Ellen Page, and Hard Candy
I just looked up Hard Candy on IMDB. That sounds disturbing. But yes, the man does in deed have a crush on Ellen Page!
