New Joss Whedon!

About a year ago, my friend started sending me Buffy the Vampire Slayer on DVD. I quickly fell in love with the series. (I'm going to start watching Angel after the Memorial Day break).

Joss Whedon has a new show coming out in the fall called Dollhouse. It looks pretty awesome. Familiar faces include Faith from Buffy, and the teacher from Rushmore.

Watch a preview here.

Way to Go Orioles!

Last night, the Orioles scored a crap load of runs off Mike Mussina, which had him kicked out of the game in the first inning.

I haven't been this proud of my baseball team in a long time.

Fun Fact

I received an email the other day from a family friend about aluminum foil. It said that there are tabs on the sides of aluminum foil boxes that you can press inward to hold the roll in place.

I checked my boxes, and the tabs were there. Now my rolls stay in place!

I have been using aluminum foil for years and have never noticed this.

(Note: It's on plastic wrap boxes too!)

Favorite Episodes

In anticipation of the release of the Sex and the City movie, I decided I needed a list of my favorite episodes from the series.

Season One -

"Sex and the City" - The pilot, in which we hear Big say for the first time "abso-fucking-lutely"

"Secret Sex" - I think the idea of this one is both mean and funny.

"The Baby Shower" - Pretty much typifies how I feel about going to baby showers.

Season Two -

"Four Women and a Funeral" - good stories in this one

"The Chicken Dance" - This is one of my favorites only because I think the dress Carrie wears to the wedding is awesome.

"La Douleur Exquise" - Always makes me want a fish filet from McDonalds

"Twenty Something Girls vs. Thirty Something Women" - A good friendship episode

"Ex and the City" - I like when they sing in the bar together because I do that alot with my friends.

Season Three -

"No If's, And's, or Butts" - The first Aidan episode.

"The Big Time" - I like the whole Aidan/Big story arc

"Easy Come, Easy Go" - When most straight guys stopped watching the show

"Hot Child in the City" - Silly

Season Four -

"The Real Me" - Me likey.

"Ghost Town" - Probably one of my top two favorite episodes

"Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda" - My other favorite episode

"Change of a Dress" - When the rest of the straight guys stopped watching the show

"I Heart NY" - I want those shoes

Season Five

"Plus One is the Lonliest Number" - The little cakes in this episode are so cute! I like the idea of a plus one instead of a date.

"Critical Condition" - We have all gotten a "face" at some point or another

Season Six -

"Hop, Skip, and a Week" - "For where I am right now, you might as well be a gay guy with Carnations"

"The Post-It Always Sticks Twice" - I like the ice cream scene at the end.

"One" - cute

"An American Girl in Paris - Parts Une and Deux" - The end.

Burgers I've Eaten - Part 10

It's the 10th post for "Burgers I've Eaten", and I chose a good one for you. Sunday, I went to the Quarry House Tavern in Silver Spring for a burger. The Quarry House is a dive bar in Silver Spring, with a great jukebox. It is pretty dark in here, so if you're looking for the perfect place to enjoy a burger and a beer on a spring day, this might not be the place for you.

I ordered the 1/3 pound burger, medium, with blue cheese. The burger arrived in a basket with a generous side of tater tots. It was a well prepared burger, juicy and slightly seared on the outside.

I love when restaurants serve tater tots instead of fries. They are more comforting.

I would also like to add that the Quarry House boasts a fantastic selection of draft and bottled beers. Any place that lists their beers in a book is fine by me.

Sex and the City Movie

In a few more weeks, the Sex and the City movie opens! I am so excited for this film, I can hardly wait.

I have probably watched the entire series thirty times. I realize this makes me a dork.

If anyone has any information regarding sneak peeks in Baltimore and/or DC, please pass them my way. Thanks.
