Five things to enjoy this Friday

1. This Jimmy Kimmel Live video of celebrities reading mean tweets about themselves. I can’t tell you why this makes me laugh even after repeated viewings. It just does.

2. This pic of my friend’s toddler eating brownies.

3. This quiz about Tim Riggins. Because Tim Riggins.

4. This movie. Yes, Enough Said is poignant given James Gandolfini’s sudden death, but Julia Louis-Dreyfus is amazing and fun.

5. This Aaron Paul video Breaking Boise. I love seeing him have fun with his Breaking Bad fame.

“My new cell phone has text paging”

Excerpt from the end of an email I sent to three of my college friends on February 5, 1999:

My new cell phone has text paging.

If, for some reason, you ever find yourself needing to reach me so desperately (ha, ha!), you can send messages to me at http://www.attws.com/general/msg_center/index.html.

I think I’m a little too connected!

Love,

Jennifer

Had I been able to look into the future to see Twitter, my little mind would have been blown.

What’s your favorite tweet that went largely unnoticed?

It’s hard to guess what makes people react to your tweets. What makes them mark it as a favorite or retweet or reply “that’s funny.”

For example, I thought this was amusing.

Bach tweet 2

But some of you liked this one a lot better.

I still don’t get it. But I’m glad you tolerate me, particularly on Bachelorette nights.

I’m laughing, Matt Damon

Matt Damon is highly underrated as a comic actor.

He was great as Jason Bourne and all, but I loved him most as Carol, Liz Lemon’s pilot love interest on 30 Rock.

In case you missed Matt’s takeover of Jimmy Kimmel Live, here’s the intro.

There’s a long history between Jimmy and Matt. There’s a great recap of the relationship here.

I have my own Jimmy Kimmel history–yes, really. In 2008, I was backstage at the show for work right after Sarah Silverman’s infamous “I’m f*cking Matt Damon” launched. The people I was there with hadn’t seen the video.

So Jimmy pulled out his laptop.

Can you picture it? All of us squeezed in around to watch. People abuse the word ‘surreal’ but that moment deserved such an adjective.
