“Nah, You Can Say It.” “Lubricant.”

  • Sloane Crosley was on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson last night and was quite charming. Not as charming as Craig though – he might be the best celebrity interviewer we have. And by we, I mean those of us still awake watching television at 1:07 AM.
  • Terriers was also on last night. I swear this is the last time I’ll say it – this is very good television and you should be watching, if only to hear dialogue like this:

Britt: He wants us to renege on our story.

Hank: Recant. You don’t renege a story, you ahh… You renege on a deal; you recant a story.

  • Christopher Plummer has been cast as Henrik Vanger in David Fincher’s film adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. He joins Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara in the English-language remake. If you’re impatient, all three of Larsson’s books have been made into movies, albeit in Swedish. So if you’re like me and hate reading while watching a movie, you’ll wait.

But also because:

  • I am consistently jealous of Crosley’s turns of phrase.
  • I thoroughly enjoyed her debut I Was Told There’d Be Cake.
  • The dedication page of How Did You Get This Number. You’ll just have to pick it up to see what I mean.
