So, Saturday, Jill came to town, we met up with LT and I twisted their arms until they agreed to walk over to Kyotofu with me. This is a Japanese bakery and is a place I had heard of but since it's close to Amy's Bread, I hadn't ever been. We had their famous Chocolate Souffle cupcakes, which came with a side of tofu ice cream (ginger & chocolate -- it tastes way better than it sounds) and a fruit compote. Delicious!! Am I right, Jill?
So that's one more that I can cross off the list.

The quote of the week goes to Jack (no big suprise) as he was speaking to Liz Lemon: "Let me give you some advice on uniting undivided people. Find a common enemy. For example, what keeps people polite on airplanes? A shared hatred of the CBS sitcoms they are forced to watch."

Also, I asked my niece, who is turning 4 next month, what she wanted for her birthday. She said, "A doggy haircutter," as she made scissor motions to her own hair. If anyone knows what that might mean, please let me know what it is and where I can buy it.

I don't know where I'd put it in the countdown, but it'd be high up there because it's friggin' awesome.

1. Liz to Jenna -- "You can try to fight getting older. You can be like Madonna and cling to youth with your Golum arms. Or you can be like Meryl Streep, and embrace your age with elegance."
2. Jack to Liz -- " For four years, I've had to make do with what passes for men in this place, with their untucked shirts, boneless faces and their Stars, both Wars and Trek."
Liz Lemon -- "Six, Tracy."
Tracy -- "Six! I knew it was a character from 'Blossom' but I couldn't find the Joey Russo button."
2. Liz's cousin -- "I figured I'd come stay with my cool cousin Liz. Besides, what better place for me to be now that I'm a homo.... wait, is that the one we call ourselves?"
3. Tracy again -- "Kenneth! Your haircut is disrepectful to lesbians."

Here's a song from the movie. I think it is right up there with Bruce Springsteen's "The Wrestler" (and totally beats "Be Italian").

Invictus. An interesting story. Of course I know something about Nelson Mandela but nothing really specific (other than the time he spent in prison) so it was interesting to find out more. I am not on board with all the praise for the performances, though. I thought Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon, usually fantastic, were just okay.
Nine. Sitting through this movie, I couldn't get over how beautiful Italy was/is, and couldn't stop thinking that last year at the exact same time, I was there. The people and costumes were really beautiful, too. For me to like a musical, I have to like the music and I didn't really like the music in this movie. The song "Be Italian" that is in the trailers was the best one by far.
Again, no rave reviews....

The Beautiful Life (already cancelled), with Mischa Barton playing Sonja Stone.
Then The Good Wife had a character that was only in the first episode and she maybe didn't have any lines, so she doesn't actually show up in the IMDB list, but believe me, she was there. (she was the secretary that Alicia and the shady guy shared until they could hire one.)
Mercy has a nurse named Sonia.
And the new show Men of a Certain Age starring Ray Romano and Penelope Ann Miller, as Ray's wife Sonia!
I know, this is probably filed under "who cares" but it's a big change for me. Before this, all I had was the mother from the "Momma" cartoon.
