It IS a tumor!

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, I shake my fist at you.

You are a complete idiot who should never have been elected governor, let alone re-elected.

And now, because of you, thousands of Californian teachers and school workers will be without jobs next year - over 40,000, by the way. Class sizes will skyrocket to astronomical numbers - Almost 40 1st graders per class? Seriously? And my mom's monthly retirement package will go down 20%. Thanks for that.


YOU are a tumor on the brain of California.

Is it 2010 yet?

Why do you tease me, 1-800-Flowers??? You say you have CUPCAKES, yet it's really just a flower arrangement! I shake my fist at you!

(Sorry for the crappy quality of this photo - I was being that asshole who takes photos while driving in traffic. For her blog.)

Damn you, Lifetime casting agents!

Excuse me for a moment while I geek out about something completely ridiculous.

Fact: I read Nora Roberts books. Yeah, yeah, insert judgment and mockery here.

Fact: Lifetime has been making a good number of Nora Roberts books into TV movies. Which is kind of cool, because I like movies made from books I like, even if they're kind of crappy.

Where am I going with this?

Someone over at Lifetime is a complete moron who has no interest in being true to the books they're converting to film.

Here's the thing that severely pisses me off:

In Northern Lights, the most recent of Roberts' books to be made into a film, the female character, Meg, is a feisty bush pilot. She has BLACK hair and blue eyes and is quite exotic, is standoffish and super independent, doesn't take any crap from anyone, and is 200% able to take care of herself. A good part of her background/character is that she strongly identifies with the Native culture in Alaska.

And who do they cast as Meg in the movie?

Fucking Leann Rimes.

Are you kidding me? Could they have picked a more generic, blonde, absolutely the opposite from the character in the book "actress" to play this part? Leann Rimes is not "tough." She's not "feisty." She is soft and silly.

I am already irritated with this movie, and am pissed off at Lifetime for making it impossible for me to enjoy a movie that I should have gotten at least a little entertainment from by so massively messing up their casting.

Hell, even JEWEL would have been better! Sure, she's still blonde, but at least she's actually been to Alaska before!

Also, upon more research, it seems like they also changed the following details:
- the main character's last name is "Burns" instead of "Burke" <-- WHY? Burke is much better.
- instead of having two huskies, Meg has pitbulls. In Alaska. Really? Which dog makes better sense?

Ugh. So disappointing.

I shake my fist at you, Lifetime!

I don't know why this bothers me, but it does. I think it's the combination of the fact that it's designed to overtly shove someone's religion upon others and the fact that they use "4gvn" for "forgiven." SO annoying.

Jon Stewart shakes his fist, too!
