10:54 AM

Donuts singlehandedly bring down the standard of breakfast foods. If donuts are acceptable for morning consumption than what isn't? I've used the donut argument to justify eating an assortment of cakes, cookies, and brownies and more recently dark chocolate smeared with almond butter for breakfast.

"Miss Alg from the library has third degree burns!"

From Summer Heights High. An Australian comedy series on HBO. I think I found the only copy in Utah County.

Don't Let Your Mom Be Your Agent

My acting career lasted exactly one commercial. I was about 7 or 8. It was for a place called Paper World. The sold costumes and party supplies. The commercial went like this; I was dressed like a pirate and with a girl who I think was dressed as a princess. We were standing motionless next to a score of costumed mannequins trying to blend in. A guy in a gorilla suit (or now that I think of it, possibly a gorilla dressed in a gorilla suit) approached us inquisitively. After examining us for a few moments he left the shot. A couple seconds later he jumps back into the shot in a startling manner. The princess and I quickly flee in fright. My Mom was my agent so all I got was a finger puppet. I can't prove anything of course but I'm pretty sure Johnny Depp saw this local commercial and drew on it heavily for his Jack Sparrow character.
