QUOTE OF THE DAY:

"
Hey sports fans, here's my NCAA pick: bet it all on the Savannah College of Art & Design. Go Fighting Acrylics!"
- Conan O'Brien

Project Runway pet peeves:
  • "One day you're in, and the next day... you're out." Shut up, shut up, SHUT UP!!! Must Heidi Klum say this every fucking episode?!!
  • Why do the designers have to meet Heidi in the same fucking room at the beginning of each show?  I mean, all she does is tell them to go someplace else to meet Tim Gunn.  It's pointless.  Why can't she just be where Tim Gunn already is and save us some time?
  • And finally... the way Heidi says "Nina Garcia" is just... ARRRGHHH!!!  I know it's her accent and all, but... it's just like fingernails against the blackboard for me!

Fuck you, Capital One.  Fuck you for sneaking this weird Credit Inform charge into my bill.  I don't trust you anymore.  I'll be canceling my credit card soon.

Here's what happened:
I got a new credit card because my old one was about to expire.  To activate the card, I had to call a particular phone number.  But instead of getting an automated recording, I got an actual person.  I thought it was weird.  I've never gotten a real person before.... not when I'm activating a card, at least.  Anyway, it was someone from the Philippines who had a thick accent and who talked too fast.  She (he?) talked too damn fast that it forced me to say "Uh-huh" to everything.  And apparently, by saying "Uh-huh," one too many times, I've agreed to pay for this thing called Credit Inform.  It's about $9.00 a month!  FUCK THAT!

Unfortunately, I can't cancel Credit Inform online.  I have to call the fucking company.  I'm sure it won't be easy.  Apparently, they ask you all these questions to verify your identity including your Social Security Number.  Now, I understand why they'd ask for that information... but the company's just so shady that I feel iffy about sharing any info with them.  And of course, by calling them they'll have a chance to rope you back in.  I'm really not looking forward to doing this.

And since Capital One allowed this kind of fuckery to happen, I don't trust them anymore.  This can possibly be a blessing in disguise.  I have way too many credit cards and it's time to get rid of some of 'em.

I saw Dreamgirls at the Ahmanson Theater last Saturday.  It was just okay.  I enjoyed it, but I was expecting something more.  Plus, they included that horrible "Listen" song by Beyonce.  Barf.

I love that Conan O'Brien is on Twitter.  I miss you, Coco.
