Somebody's having a baby!

by Brittany Geragotelis

First I get news that a co-worker is engaged (congrats Kathy!) and then I hear what I'd already guessed but didn't have confirmation of until today....Tori Spelling's preggers again! Woo hoo! Yes, yes, I know, I sound like we're best buds or like we even know each other (we don't), but I watch her show(s) and really think, given the chance, we'd be friends. Really. Of course, when I told Matt about this last night, he had a different perspective.

Me: "OMG! Tori's pregnant!"
Matt: "Tori?"
Me: "Yeah, Tori!"
Matt: "Oh." Pause. "You mean Tori Spelling?" Eye roll.
Me: "Uh, yeah! I'm so happy for her....I thought she was looking pregnant the other day. She had that pregnant glow she gets."
Matt: "Oh yeah, your good friend, Tori. That's exciting news." Sarcastically said with another eye roll and a chuckle.
Me: "Hey, we would make great friends!"
Matt: "Sure you would."
Me: "I want Tori to plan our wedding." Silence and end of conversation.

Ladies, if you ever want to get your guy to stop arguing with you, apparently all you have to do is bring up marriage and they change the subject. AMAZING!

Hahahah. Anyways, in light of all the great news on the baby/marriage front, I thought it would be a good time to post my latest Book Slayer video. Enjoy!

Meet Francia Raisa from "The Secret Life of the American Teenager"

by Brittany Geragotelis

When we decided to shoot Francia Raisa, one of the stars of "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" I wasn't super psyched. Not because I didn't like her...but I'd simply never watched the show before. So, after we had the actress on board, I knew I had to do a little research. Yes, a lot of my research for work involves watching TV.

How jealous are you?

Anyway, I began to watch the show and at first was like, "Really? This is what has teens obsessed these days? (It's ABC Family's number one show and is a fave among teens; even celebs like Kendall Jenner and Selena Gomez are fans) It was like "7th Heaven" pregnant (an astute observation, since I later found out that creator Brenda Hampton, was the mastermind behind this show as well).

But as I continued to watch it, I slowly got hooked. Now, only partway through season 4, I'm officially a fan. So the prospect of meeting one of the show's stars is way exciting for me now! And on that note, I'm sure a lot of you out there would be psyched at the chance to meet her, too. Sooooo, because I love you all AND because it's Friday, here's a way you can make your dreams come true!

Once a week, my guest blogger (who shall remain nameless...okay, not nameless...let's call her Ms. Sassy Pants. Sassy for short) stops by to share all the things in her life that deserve a big, fat DELETE. Anyhoo, her majesty is back and she's ready to do the unthinkable: DELETE herself. Check out what she had to say and then come up with a few DELETES of your own.

Question, when do you know when it's time to throw in the towel? What do you write about when you have nothing else to write about? When commiserating just stops working? Bottom line—I hate people. But what's more is I hate the way that I behave around people. So I'm going to say it folks...Ms. Sassy Pants is now DELETED.

Here are a few ways that I am instituting self-DELETION: profile: DELETE. No more spending hours stalking people I just don't give two bleeps about.

People that can't consistently show up in my life...ever heard of "do what you say, say what you do?" If you can't do that, then you, as well as me, must be DELETED.

Blaming others for my lot in life...DELETE.

Intolerance of others behavior...who am I to stand in the way of others' happiness? DELETE the 'tude.

Judgment...I like to think I'm perfect—but I'm not. DELETE.

Gutter mouth...nothing is more attractive than a 30-something throwing around bleep this and frack that...not! DELETE.

Let's face it, I may have to make a guest appearance now and then. Maybe I'll bust out the story of Sassy and the three exes...yes they are BAAAACCCKKK. Just for old times sake. Good times. In the meantime...I've been DELETED.


Book Slayer's Note: I'm so truly sad to see Ms. Sassy Pants and her posts go....lucky for me, we're friends and I will still get to hear all her DELETES. And if you're all good, I may just share them with you! Farewell Sassy, you will be missed!

Rebecca Black--Actually funny ha ha.

by Brittany Geragotelis

So, you've no doubt heard Rebecca Black's unoriginal laugh of a music video which is so catchy that it crawls into your head and embeds itself like a tumor in your brain. Well, here's a video that the artist who's become an overnight sensation (I don't get it either) did with Funny or Die. Caution: If you thought Rebecca was talentless because of her music video "Friday," the joke's on you, because apparently she's pretty good at comedy!

Check it out!


You have GOT to see this play!

by Brittany Geragotelis

I trudged out into the rainy night to go see the opening of a new off-off-Broadway play in NYC yesterday evening. And even though it was blistery outside, inside the studio where The Timing of a Day was showing, things were heating up. Now, being that most of my boyfriends' friends are actors and the circle he runs in all seem to come back to entertainment, I've been dragged to a LOT of off-Broadway productions. I'm not going to say any of them were horrible, but none of them really caught my attention—until last night.

The Timing of a Day is a play written by Owen Panettieri and directed by Joey Brenneman. The cast is a small one, comprised of one girl and three guys, all playing mid-20s young people living in NYC. In the show, the audience follows the lives of three roommates, Doug (played by Nik Kourtis), Paige (played by R. Elizabeth Woodard) and Josh (played by Miguel Govea) who are all sharing a tiny apartment in Harlem. After a tragic series of events, two of the characters are left to question their own relationships with each other as well as that with their former roommate. As the actors take us back in time to show us how their lives became so entangled, we start to realize where and how they each fell in love, got off track and began to ignore the things that were right in front of them.

Though it sounds a bit serious, and at times it does deal with serious situations, the play itself was very enjoyable and entertaining. The writing was clever and real, and the situations the playwright put the characters in were totally believable. Nik Kourits' portrayal of a flamboyantly gay guy who's just beginning to admit to everyone around him just exactly who he is, was genius, endearing and a joy to watch. From his mannerisms to the inflection in his voice and wicked dance moves, you can't help but fall in love with him.

R. Elizabeth Woodard showcases a compelling yet realistic character, often saying and acting the way I could see myself reacting if put in the same situations. Though tiny in stature, Elizabeth's presence is huge and she has no problem letting her emotions rip through the venue. Miguel Govea did a good job playing a guy just wanting to find love; everyone can identify with being in love with someone who has no clue how they feel. And watching him work through certain scenes was just heartbreaking (in a good way). And though Matty (played by Justin Anselmi) weaves in and out of the main characters' lives briefly, the actor manages to leave a lasting impression when he's through.

I really loved the way they used the stage and created a space where the audience can see the whole apartment. Also, the way the actors moved around the room, picking stuff up and moving furniture to give the viewer a sense that we were changing time, too was very effective. It was done in a seamless way that wasn't distracting and actually added to the feeling of the show.

All in all, I was pleasantly surprised with The Timing of a Day and would wholeheartedly suggest you go see it if you're in NYC the next few weeks. Tickets are only $18 which is a total steal for the performance that you get. Lots of thanks to assistant director David "Cougar" Williams for putting this show on my radar—I can't think of a better way to spend a night out!
