This (mostly) Just In...

Golden Globe Nominations Announced - Garney did very will with his predictions (he's so amazing that way...especially considering most of the nominated films have not yet been released). I think it's finally Kate Winslet's year to win the big awards. About damn time.

Jay Leno Going Primetime - Rather than spare us all from his unfunniness when Conan takes over The Tonight Show next year, Jay will stick around for a nightly talk show at 10pm. The only question really is why? Oh, and who actually likes Jay Leno? My ex-boyfriend did, but he also broke up with me, so I think we can all agree he makes terrible life choices.

Newsweek Uses the Bible to Defend Gay Marriage - In an interesting article, Newsweek looks at those pesky parts of the Bible where Jesus says to "Love one another" and the ideas we have culturally rejected, such as polygamy and murdering adulteresses, to make a case for gay marriage. It's a great read, even if the argument is so obvious you just want to kick all the religious screamers for their hypocrisy.

Tomorrow is National Hug a Ginger Day - Or so says some girl on Facebook. I think you all know what to do.

He liked Jay Leno and he broke up with you?

Did he do it instantly after revealing that secret, before you could? Or maybe while you had a mouth full of food and couldn't talk, he was like, "By the way, IthinkJayLeno'sfunnyandI'mleavingyou."

I've broken up with people for much less than finding Jay Leno amusing. Then again, that one girl didn't break up with me when I demanded we watch Anaconda and Anaconda 2: Hunt for the Blood Orchid that one night.

I know! Though, if I broke up with people because their pop culture tastes were less awesome than mine, I'd be single forever. Which will likely happen anyway, but you know what I'm saying.

The only thing worse than that Jay Leno show is going to be that Jimmy Fallon show.

I miss Craig Kilborn like mad.

HUG a GINGER DAY?! Whoooo hoooo!!! I'm in! I guess I will volunteer my body for a such a beautiful holiday! :)

Hey- guess what?! You've been tagged!

Red, as someone who's dumped people for loving the O.C., I know all too well.

Also, Liz is completely right. The only ex-SNL guy whose show would suck more would be if they got Jim Breuer to host.

Hug A Ginger Day? I may have to stop claiming I'm blond for one day.

I'm a Letterman man, myself. Could be that Indiana upbringing.

You know, that one story that the Bible-thumpers try to shove down your throat to prove that God hates gays, the one about Sodom and Gomorrah? Guess what. God didn't destroy Sodom because of butt sex. He destroyed the cities because the people were unfit hosts, ie, murdering their guests while they slept after the guests had eaten and supped with the hosts. In the nineteenth century, the story was conveniently changed by a Baptist minister (I think...could have been Wesleyan) in order to further his own political views within the church.

See what happens when you, you know, actually read the thing?

I don't know about hugging a Ginger today, but I sure do plan on violating one later tonight.
