Faith in Motion

Tonight at Target a little girl who looked to be about 6 or 7 years old came zipping past me, running at top speed. As she approached an intersection of aisles, she stopped. Her mom tried to keep up, pushing a cart and yelling, "Faith! Faith! Slow down!"

At this Faith turned to her mom and simply said, "I can't."

And she took off running again as fast as she could.

Saget's Revenge

Last week I wrote a post in response to the fact that Bob Saget has a new sitcom coming out.

Apparently Bob's deal with the devil is even sneakier than I imagined.

Yesterday Sarah and I were at Target and we split up into our usual departments; she in the clothing section and I browsed through the media. They were having a sale on TV shows on DVD and I came across the first season of How I Met Your Mother for only 12 bucks. I'd never seen an episode but had heard pretty good things about it, not to mention the fact I'm a fan of co-stars Jason Segal (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Undeclared, Freaks and Geeks), Alyson Hannigan (American Pie), and Neil Patrick Harris (Doogie Howser, Harold & Kumer, and the incredible Dr. Horrible).

It's been a while since I was brave enough to buy a DVD without previously seeing it, but I figured at only 12 bucks I couldn't go wrong.

Fast-forward a few hours. Sarah and I pop in Disc 1 and the narration (oh, it's narrated?) begins. Sarah turns to me and says, "That sounds like Bob Saget."

She was right. Wait. Was she? I listened. It did sound like him. But then again...maybe not. I scrambled over to my computer and looked up the show on IMDb.

Yep. It's him. We watched two episodes (I still enjoyed them, despite Saget's presence) but ended  the night watching the first six episodes of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

But I still couldn't believe Bob Saget got past me like that. How did I not know that? How could no one tell me? Entertainment Weekly, you let me down. You always conveniently seem to leave out that little detail when you rave about the show.

You've won this round Saget, you fat-headed imp.

Who Asked for More Saget?

Last night I saw ads for a new sitcom starring Bob Saget.

Seriously, Earth, whatever it is I did wrong, I apologize. Just tell me what I did to deserve this.

Happy April Fool's Day (from Google)

This morning when I logged in to my Gmail account, at the top of the page was a link touting a new feature. New Gmail Autopilot! it said in a bright yellow color. Upon clicking on the link, I was taken HERE.

I love it when corporations make me smile. Well done, Googles.
