It's Everyone Can Bite Me Friday!

First of all, I'm over at Scrivel with my Vogue cover. Don't believe me? Go see for yourself.

I am currently in love with The Bonnie Hunt Show. Why it's taken Hollywood soooooooooooo long to give this hilarious chick her own talk show only points out how retarded this town is. Whereas I had little interest in seeing Mamma Mia or Sex and The City (rentals) I can't WAIT to see The Women. It's a modern update of the trashy and fabulous 1939 George Cukor directed one, only not as mean-spirited. Fuck.

Sidebar: 1939 was considered one of the best years of movie making in the history of Hollywood. The year's most famous film was Gone With the Wind, which won the Oscar. The other nominees of 1939 were: Dark Victory, Goodbye Mr. Chips, Love Affair, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Ninotchka, Of Mice and Men, Stagecoach, The Wizard of Oz, and Wuthering Heights.

Annette Bening, one of the stars of the movie, was on Ellen yesterday and when Ellen said there was not one man in the entire movie, except for a lone male extra at the end of the film, the audience cheered. Let's hope they remember that sentiment in November.

My hands are much, much worse and I'm going to the doctor on Monday and I'M OVER IT. Their numbness actually wakes me up at night and as great a concept as that is, IT'S THE WRONG PAIR OF HANDS. The stress of it, of course, just makes the situation worse. Typing is agony and I've stopped commenting as much as I used to so I can save my hands for the 256 blogs I write for. I can no longer hold a knife and fork to eat or hold a glass with one hand. I'm regressing backwards and soon won't be able to speak, which should make a lot of you very happy.

My ex-gay friend and I have used the term, "He's your new husband" since 1992. Now I see it all over the web and I find it annoying. I also invented the wheel and sliced bread so I wish people would stop using those too.

I finished the story of how I got dumped right before a show in New York and what happened at that show that made me stop feeling sorry for myself. It's at Uproarious and part one was on Wednesday so go catch up for God's sakes.

See my sidebar patch? Tomorrow is my two year Blogoversary. That's a long fucking time in Suzy years.

End of chat.

  1. I, too, LOVE Bonnie Hunt. She's comedic genius. And I'm going to see The Women this weekend. But, most importantly, the thing with your hands is skearing the shit out of me. Please don't leave us dangling. Let us know what the dr. says asap!!!

  2. Bonnie Hunt? WHEN? WHERE? I love her! and I can't wait to see that movie!!!

    and i took an IQ test once- because they thought I was either a)really stupid, b) learning disabled, c) smart but incredibly lazy and/or rebelling against my parents for being the fidiots they were at the time.

    answer was C. I love it that to punish someone else we almost always punish ourselves first.

  3. I THOUGHT I knew from whence that movie came! I saw the original a thousand times. (At least it feels that way.) Yesterday I watched another movie from the thirties--"Small Town Girl"--and I couldn't BELIEVE the ending. The guy just shows up in a convertible and saves the day.

    I hope your hands are better soon--you seriously need them to keep entertaining us with your blogs.

  5. I wasn't aware of the Bonnie Hunt show either and I will check it out.
    I wish my movie girlfriend didn't move to Ireland for 2 months. I doubt hus would want to see The Women! I guess I need more friends.
    I hope the doc can figure out whats going on with your hands and fix it, now!

    Suzy,
    I, too, am a fan of "The Women." I think, aside from the great writing and acting, is that in the 30s women didn't have to work out. If you look at some of the scenes (the gym scene, for instance), they were slim, but still flabby. Has progress been made?
    Aloha,
    MJ

  7. I saw Bonnie Hunt was going to have a talk show and meant to start taping it - thanks for the reminder. LOVE her!
    I read a bad review of "The Women" today - and then realized it was written by a man. Stupid. I plan on seeing it - reviews be damned!

  8. I love Bonnie Hunt! She has deep Chicago roots so she's seen everywhere when she visits.

    They are predicting rain all weekend so I'm going to do a double feature and watch the Brad Pitt film and The Women.
