if you need a giggle…

Any time I’m feeling a little blah and want something to make me laugh, I go see what Wil Wheaton and Brent Spiner have been posting on their Twitter pages recently.  (Or should that be “what they’ve been tweeting”?  Whatever.)

Recent case in point: “What do you call a man who is sick and tired of working in a pickle factory?  …Spent Briner.”

some newsy tidbits

Rather than posting about each of these items separately, I decided to do a somewhat random news roundup.  So here I present Things Recently of Interest to Rebecca.

  • Neil Gaiman is going to be on the Colbert Report tonight.  This news was greeted by roomie and myself with lots of excited screaming.  One of my favorite people being interviewed by ANOTHER of my favorite people?  Awesome!
  • Wil Wheaton apparently had an audition for a TV pilot recently.  I know that having an audition for a pilot is a far far cry from actually being on a TV show – first he would have to get the part, and then the pilot would have to be picked up by a network – but isn’t it a fun thought?  I love Wil Wheaton and it would be great to see him cast as a regular in a TV series where he’s not, you know, Wesley Crusher.
  • The Sci Fi channel is changing its name to Syfy.  Apparently this is so they can “broad[en] perceptions and embrac[e] a wider and more diverse range of imagination-based entertainment including fantasy, paranormal, reality, mystery, action and adventure, as well as science fiction.”  Umm… okay, whatever.
