Kind of a big deal

If you know me, then you know this. Yes, my apartment smells of rich mahoghany and I have lots of leather bound books. And now, I have my very own cuppycake named after me. Check it out. The Donna.

Step Away from the Facebook

Am I alone here? I'm lying in bed, trying to get to sleep and there is this nagging, gnawing feeling I have something I should be doing. Paying bills? Eh. Laundry? Nah. Finishing that novel? or the screenplay? Or even a worthwhile blog? Oh no. I have spaghetti and meatballs cooking. And coconuts to steal. And maybe even some chicks to fight along with my sorority sisters. Oh yes, the vicious cycle that is Facebook Games.

I had a weekend of "reflecting" (or detoxing, call it what you will, I stayed out of the bars!) and spent a lot of time working on my writing. However, as soon as the flicker of the display comes on, I feel the need to gear my laptop away from it's intended target of Microsoft Word and into the world wide web of obsession. Farm Town? Check. Farmville? Check...Why again do I need two farms? Ok so that was alright, but while I was waiting for creative inspiration to strike (And those damn grapes to grow) I'd check out other apps. My Zoo. Check. Cafe World. Check. Oh dear. This is not going good. No I've got grapes and cows to harvest, lions to breed and oh my a french onion soup mess in my kitchen. Whew. Got it all cleaned and good to go. What to do now? Oh, look, a shiny Rock Pool. Check. Island Paradise? Check.

Today I stopped and thought about the time I've invested in these games and discovered I could have:
Done 4 loads of laundry
Folded all of said laundry and put it away in it's delegated spot.
Actually had delegated spots for my laundry because I'd have time to organize
Read a book.
Wrote a couple blogs.
Watched a movie that had more meaning that stealing someone's goat.

I admit, I'm an addict. Maybe there's self help groups out there. Maybe a dose of sunshine amidst the dreary January days is what I need. I felt that, if I posted this blog, maybe, just maybe, one you out there reading that has the same addiction wouldn't feel so alone, so ashamed, so scared if you knew there was others out there like you. Plus, you can add me as a neighbor and send me gifts :)

I couldn't help but wonder.....

about Sex in the City reruns.
does anyone else feel guilty for listening to these girls in the past? was it because being a 30 something new yorker is like being a 20 something in the small towns? and in my late twenties I realize the bullshit of this show? Carrie is supposed to the be independent woman we strive to be (or I thought) but really she is a co dependent Blahnik addicted chain smoking mess. I feel better. Thanks for listening.

Arrested Development Coming Soon

Will Arnett has confirmed....Arrested Development is coming soon to theaters. As interviewed Arnett stated he couldn't give many details for fear of being held up for treason. Arnett can be seen in the new movie When In Rome with Josh Duhamel (Las Vegas, major hottie...ya know he married that one singer chick....) and also going to be in Despicable Me. As for Despicable Me, I think I'm going to skip that. The previews teased at the beginning it could be something kinda "cute" but then it lost steam as the preview waned on. It does appear to have a pretty star studded cast, but maybe I'll wait for the DVD. And I recently caught him in Wristcutter's, A Love Story with Patrick Fugit from Almost Famous, another one of my favs. I recommend you see them both if you haven't. There's your homework for the week.

It sounds like Arrested Development won't be out till 2011, but in the meantime you can catch the rest of the cast in several things out this year. David Cross was just in Alvin and the Chipmunks, the Squeakqel, and in an effort to build in a Kevin Bacon 6 Degrees of Separation to this blog, he also stars alongside Kate Hudson (Almost Famous) in and Kristin Wiig, who is also in Despicable Me. (flowcharts to follow...right?!?) I also suggest you catch Cross in Mr. Show with Bob and David ("More homework, but Ramble..." Quit complaining and watch. Thank me later.)

Jason Bateman, who tore up the big screen in 2009 with roles in Couples Retreat, Up in the Air, The Invention of lying and more, will star in Paul and The Baster this year. And then there's that George Michael...a relative unknown until his success in Arrested Development. Although rumoured that he wasn't returning for the movie, Michael confirms he is returning to his roots on E!
although there is a much different take on the situation in this article.

Regardless of Cera's strife, I'm excited to see how the movie will play out. Much like Family Guy, Fox gave up too early on this show and it has found a cult following in the afterlife called syndication. IFC runs it pretty regularly, so check your local listings.
