  I remember listening to a review of that incredibly stupid-sounding movie Hall Pass on NPR a while back. I really enjoyed the review, as they approached it intellectually, which was hilarious. One part of it actually hit home, though, as they discussed the premise: how all married people secretly carry around the idea that the only thing keeping them from being able to hook up with ANYONE at ANYTIME is their spouse.

  1. I used to toy with the idea of sending Taylor Lautner a Book of Mormon with my picture in it. He would then convert and somehow find me, thank me for helping him see the light, and proceed to get down on one knee.

    I might still do it. But he'd probably think twice about proposing when he sees the baby in my arms.

  2. Heck, I'm not sure *I* could resist Alistair.

    I'll just leave it at that.
