From the AP: NEW YORK -- A flock of alumni of NBC's "The West Wing" will return to reprise their roles one last time for the White House drama's final episodes, the network announced Tuesday.

Rob Lowe will come back as Sam Seaborn, the senior political official he played from 1999-2003. Lowe was nominated for an Emmy for his performance in 2001.

Mary-Louise Parker, who now stars on Showtime's "Weeds," will return as women's-rights advocate Amy Gardner, who in years past has had an on-again-off-again romance with presidential adviser Josh Lyman (Bradley Whitford).

Also bringing back their characters: Anna Deavere Smith, Emily Proctor, Marlee Matlin, Gary Cole, Tim Matheson, Timothy Busfield and Annabeth Gish.

mmm...all i can say is FUCK YEAH!!! Nancy!!! Ainsley!! and SAMMMMM!!! yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy me happy

Last night I went to go see WashU's production of 'Much Ado About Nothing'. It was absolutely fantastic. The guy playing Benedick was fucking incredible. I mean...wow. So, so good. Now I want to re-read the play and definitely watch the Kenneth Branagh movie again.

Much Ado is one of my favorite Shakespeare plays. Another is Twelfth Night. However, that is now being sullied before my very eyes in a new AMANDA FUCKIN BYNES MOVIE. Why is that girl even allowed to be in movies? She's not funny, she can't act, and she's not that attractive. At least she doesn't try to sing, but seriously...gah. Plus, the movie looks horrific on its own. WHYYY.
Thus, the movie is dead to me.

Also, someone somehow got the Josh and Donna kissing scene online, and it's...holy shit I can't stop the squeeeeeeeeeeeeees. Actually, most of the J/D moments are up, but I don't want to spoil myself too much.

Oh, who am I kidding. Of course I do.

Well dammit, I didn't really want to write anymore after Max's last post, as it was better than any sort of writing or anything I will ever do, but now I've decided to revel in my shallowness and simply write whatever.

So the topic today: The West Wing.

You all know of my love for the show, and for the reasons, like the writing, the actors, the issues, etc.
All of those factors have kept me watching the show for 7 years. All those...and one more shallow aspect:
Josh and Donna.

Yes, I am one of those annoying people who want characters together on television, and Josh and Donna have always been my number one. I have weathered 7 years of hints, of Sorkin trying to push in the right direction and John Wells completely fucking up. Through Sydney and Vaughn, Nathan and Haley, Veronica and Logan/Duncan, Jess and Rory, Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart (j/k...or am I?), I have waited seven years for Josh and Donna to get together.

And now I know, through spoilers and through an awesome NBC promotion last night during the Olympics, that it's happening, and in the next episode. Granted, that's March 12 and I will be in London, but still. I. Can't. Fucking. Wait. This is a long time coming, and dammit, I'm so excited I could piss my pants.

So forgive me my retardation, because yes, this is important to me too.

Yesterday I saw two completely different movies.

First I saw Underworld: Evolution. No one wanted to go with me, so I went by myself, and it was incredibly enjoyable. I could make stupid comments and laugh at everything (and some of that was from my lack of Adderall yesterday) and not have anyone look at me like I'm crazy.

The movie was good...I mean, it was horrible in terms of quality, acting, whatever, but it was so much fun! Usually I don't like blood and gore but I really enjoyed the movie. It was a good continuation of the first and kinda turned everything that you'd learned in the 1st around without a ton of holes in the story. I had fun with it, and Scott Speedman in ridiculously low pants so that his bones near his hips are super prominent and hot (you know what I mean) or hell, basically naked with Kate Beckinsale, was yummy.

Then I went out to dinner with my friend Julia and we saw Matchpoint. Now, usually I don't like Woody Allen movies, but this was actually quite good. It's very intense, yet engrossing. It was perhaps a little long, but I liked it. (And yes, the reason we went to see it was for the eyecandy. Bite me. They're hot, what can I say? Also, Scarlett Johanssen looked lovely).

Alright, so in addition, WashU is raising their tuition 5.5%. This will bring the total yearly cost of school to $41,854. Out of the top 16 schools (as ranked by U.S. News), Wash U is now 3rd in terms of highest cost, behind only Northwestern (12) and U Chicago (15). This means that my school, even though people continually ask, "Is that in DC or Seattle?", costs more than Harvard, Princeton, etc. Fuck that, man!!

Loving, hopeful, open. Likely to carry on an romance from afar. You are The Window Shopper.

You take love as opportunities come, which can lead to a high-anxiety, but high-flying romantic life. You're a genuinely sweet person, not saccharine at all, so it's likely that the relationships you have had and will have will be happy ones. You've had a fair amount of love experience for your age, and there'll be much more to come.

Your exact opposite:
The Stiletto

Deliberate Brutal Sex Master
Part of why we know this is that, of all female types, you are the most prone to sudden, ferocious crushes. Your results indicate that you're especially capable of obsessing over a guy you just met. Obviously, passion like this makes for an intense existence. It can also make for soul-destroying letdowns.

Your ideal match is someone who'll love you back with equal fire, and someone you've grown to love slowly. A self-involved or pessimistic man is especially bad. Though you're drawn to them, avoid artists at all costs.

Well, tonight's West Wing hit a little too close to home, n'est ce pas? All the talk about heart attacks and Martin Sheen's intro...oy. Still, I love John Spencer.

BUT DAMMIT...why do Kate and Will get their little date storyline?!?! No one really gives a shit about either of their characters. Could we not just get a Josh and Donna thing going PLEASE?! Not like I've been waiting for it for, oh, I don't know, 7 years now!!!! DAH.


It was OK otherwise though. And next week: DANNY! DANNY DANNY DANNY DANNY!! Dear lord I love Timothy Busfield.
