It's toasted.

Announcement! Announcement! I don't know if you've heard, but Jon Hamm (THE Don Draper, my favourite of the Mad Men) is hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend. We all know of my love for him. And GUESS who is going to the live dress rehearsal Saturday night?!?!?!


If you're unaware, the dress rehearsal occurs from 8-10 every Saturday night before the actual live show. They go through two hours of material during this time, and between 10 and 1130, they cut out a half-hour of skits for the live broadcast. My laugh factor (or lack thereof) may help decide which skits make it and which get auf'd. Just sayin'.

Oh, and the musical guest (who also rehearses) is Coldplay, a band who's music is creeping up on my U2-brand lame-factor. But they're solid, of course. The SNL studio is actually one of the best out there - apparently it sounds amazing when you're right there, but sometimes doesn't translate to television as wonderfully.

I'd like to give a special THANK YOU to my bestie Kells for this lovely engagement gift. How awesome is she?? Yeah, she's right at 11 stars out of 10. She's good people. She's salt of the Earth. And, in all honesty, she's one of the most inspiring people I know, and one of the people I most admire. Two words: Hero Status.

And now, this is a perfect opportunity to share more Jon Hamm/Don Draper photos. Anybody complaining? Didn't think so.




See you on Saturday.
