Miss Penny Lane

I always tell the girls, never take it seriously.
If ya never take it seriously, ya never get hurt.
Ya never get hurt, ya always have fun...
And if you ever get lonely, just go to the record store and visit your friends.

Another Great Show You're Not Watching....

'ello, loves! so, last thursday i found myself home alone, couching for the 5th night in a row. well, thank the gods i'm embracing being more of a homebody (AKA, i'm a loser with no friends), b/c i happened upon the first 2 episodes of this really great new sitcom, miss guided. i didn't know at the time that it is produced by ashton kucher, but he did guest star in 1 of the episodes. it is a really, really cute show!! it stars judy greer, who you know from arrested development (LOVE), what women want (the parts i [unfortunately] saw were stooopid, but she was cute and memorable), the wedding planner (never really saw), 13 going on 30 (unabashedly love), etc. judy greer is fantastic--mark my words, this chick is going far. she plays becky, a high school guidance counselor whom, it seems, graduated from this high school, as did smarmy vice principal, bruce, perfectly performed by snl alum, chris parnell. greer really puts herself out there as becky by showcasing her real-life awkward teen photos in the opening of the show and through-out episodes as needed. i really enjoy her relationships with the students and the teachers at the school, and her interspersed commentary. oh, here's the imdb description: A single-camera comedy centered on a woman (Greer) who returns to her high school alma mater to become a guidance counselor. much better than my lame-o description! brooke burke plays lisa, one of the teachers, who is the prom queen to greer's frizzy-haired brace-face. 'member the principal's secretary in ferris beuller's day off? she is in the show, too. OMG, tonight's ep has a whole BREAKFAST CLUB MONTAGE! is there anything better?? oh, there is--a whole breakfast club theme. love this show.

btw, judy greer was on letterman last night sporting the longest, most gorgeous red hair (NOT the pic over there). either she got extensions, or this show was filmed prior to the writer's strike (thank gods that hot mess is over). anyway, 2 new eps are on right now, so see ya...
