Quick Hit Friday . . .

Posted by 2 Dollar Productions Friday, June 18, 2010

"Don't fuck with the babysitter," - Elizabeth Shue, 'Adventures in Babysitting'

I really enjoyed that movie as a kid, although I have nagging doubts about how it would hold up today as I seem to remember one scene where Shue starts singing the babysitting blues in a Chicago nightclub. Oh well . . .

I'll hold off on the blues today, and instead, focus on the positives and try to hit the door by 4:25 p.m. Before that can happen, however, we must look at the hard stories of the week such as:

It was confirmed this week that Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart were married in New Mexico.

Gov. Bill Richardson confirmed to The Associated Press on Wednesday that the couple were married at the governor’s mansion in Santa Fe.

During the exchanging of vows, Flockhart emotionally told Ford: “I love you,” and he replied with a smirk, “I know.”

Megan Fox and former 'Beverly Hills 90210' star Brian Austin Green are engaged to be married – again.

"Yes, she is engaged," a rep for the actress told PEOPLE.

Fox and Green were initially engaged in November 2006, but called it off in February 2009 - a decision which was said to be "mutual."

The delay was caused by Green needing more time to collect his ‘90210’ syndication money so he could afford a ring for Fox.

Seinfeld’ co-creator and ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ star Larry David and his ex-wife Laurie David were both denying reports that surfaced this week claiming that Laurie had an affair with Al Gore. Seriously.

Star magazine report based on "an insider," saying she and Al Gore had an affair, adding to the breakup of his 40-year marriage to Tipper Gore.

Laurie David issued a statement: "The rumor is completely and totally untrue. I adore Al and Tipper and consider them part of my family. I'm in a committed relationship and couldn't be happier."

The ‘Inconvenient Truth’ is that it’s true – it’s all true – and Gore picked her up with the line: “Let’s create a little global warming together under my satin sheets.”

A judge sentenced a man to two years behind bars for stalking "American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest this week.

Chidi Uzomah Jr, 26, had pleaded no contest to stalking. Uzomah was arrested in October 2009 at the offices of E! entertainment and he had a pocket-knife with him.

He told the judge he would have used a bigger knife, but "Ryan is so small that a pocket knife was more fitting."

Perez Hilton posted a fake and compromising image of Miley Cyrus on Twitter this week.

The celebrity blogger posted a picture of the 17-year-old Cyrus in which she appeared to have no underwear on while climbing out of a car. The picture was a fake and later removed after an Internet outcry which suggested that Hilton should face child pornography charges.

Perez responded with: "Do you think I am stupid enough to post a real photo of Miley not wearing any underwear? Sure I like to be controversial, but I don't want to go to jail.”

Yes, yes I do believe that Hilton is indeed that stupid.

A Mercedes-Benz owned by Charlie Sheen was stolen this week and pushed off Mulholland Drive. This is the second such incident with Sheen’s cars in the past 5 months.

Someone apparently took the luxury car from Sheen's driveway, and the star of TV's "Two and a Half Men" didn't know it was missing, police Officer Norma Eisenman said.

Police suspect a disgruntled hooker or any random person off the street who is as baffled as I am by the success of ‘Two and a Half Men.”

American Idol’ judge Randy Jackson was hospitalized Tuesday in Southern California with chest pains.

Jackson, 48, was taken to Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena, and a source told The Associated Press that doctors at the hospital think it was a mild heart attack.

Jackson was apparently screaming at the doctors in pain, and the lead surgeon responded with: “I don’t know Dawg – it sounds a little pitchy to me” before ultimately treating him.

Lady Gaga showed up to a Mets baseball game this past week and stripped down her to sparkly bra and bikini bottoms to watch the contest.

Gaga later flipped off fans with both her middle fingers as she drank beer and cursing.

With that kind of continued behavior, Gaga might be forced to drop the Lady from her name since it’s rapidly becoming a gross misnomer.

Actor Chris Klein, who gained fame in the sex comedy "American Pie," was arrested early Wednesday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, an official said.

A California Highway Patrol spokesman said Klein, 31, was taken into custody at around 3:15 am pdt (10:15 am gmt) after the car he was driving was seen drifting between lanes on a Los Angeles freeway. Klein was released later on his own recognizance.

Police also found a molested apple pie in the front seat and Klein's underwear stuffed in the glovebox, but they refused to charge him with public indecency.

As always, let's end with a gold image or three:

In honor of the World Cup and cups in general, these images seemed appropriate. So, juggle however many balls you have in the air today, thigh-highs can still work in the summer and . . . Happy Friday!


{Editor's Note: I will be catching up on blogs this weekend as I am woefully behind - per usual}

  2. "Don't fuck babysitters." What the heck? That's what they're there for. I borrow my neighbour's children just so I can hire babysitters to hit on.

    I'm a terrible person.

  3. Linda Says:
  4. I just saw Adventures in Babysitting recently and really liked it. Cyrus strikes me as a train wreck waiting to happen, I hope I'm wrong. Have a great weekend and Happy Friday!!

  5. Heff Says:
  6. Wow. This was a rather difficult Quick Hit Friday to fuck with, and you nailed all the good shit, lol !

    I concede !

    Have a good weekend, BDS ~

  7. nobich Says:
  8. Seems like saying "Bottoms Up" is appropriate again & Happy Friday!

  9. What got you thinking about Adventures in Babysitting? Or do I even want to know ;-)

    Have a good weekend!

  10. Miss Ash Says:
  11. Hmmm didn't you miss a story about a celebrity (I use the term loosely) being kidnapped while changing a tire.....Im not even sure if it's true but I heard it on my morning show LOL!

  12. BostonPobble Says:
  13. Words cannot express my disdain for Perez Hilton. It requires great amount of gesticulating and incoherent babbling about my brain hurting and my flesh peeling from my bones. Why is it he is famous and you are not (yet)? The mind boggles.
    Hope you had a great weekend.

  14. JLee Says:
  15. I'm not sure who would want to have an affair with Al Gore or stalk Ryan Seacrest. Takes all kinds I suppose. lol Have a great weekend :)

  16. Boxer Says:
  17. ahahahah. I see you're now out the door at 4:25..... soon you'll get it back to 3:00.

    I loved Adventures In Babysitting. I saw it at a drive in while drinking Peppermin Schapps. Awww, the good old days.

    Thanks for our QHF and don't worry about being behind on the blogs. :-)

  18. WIGSF - That is terrible. I believe Steven Seagal (among others) got in trouble w/ their marriage/the law by sleeping w/ babysitters. You've been warned. Ha. Happy Friday.

    Linda - Really? That's great. I own it on DVD (got it for $4.99), but haven't seen it in years and years. And yeah, Cyrus could end up like Lindsay if she doesn't watch it. Happy Friday.

    Heff - I take that a compliment even though I was pulling teeeth with some of these. But then again, nothing good ever comes easy, eh? Ha. Happy Friday Heff.

    Nobich - It has been a theme lately, but it will come back around again w/ time. Ha. Happy Friday.

    Native Minnow - I honestly don't know. That line just came to me out of the blue, so . . . we won't think too deeply on this one. Ha. Happy Friday Minnow.

    Miss Ash - I think that was too late and too minor of a celeb (Jeremy London?) to make QHF, but good eye Miss Ash - we appreciate that around here. Ha. Happy Friday.

    Bostonpobble - That kind of thinking can only lead to depression and bouts of lashing out in anger. Ha. But yeah, Hilton is just pretty much a big ol' douchebag in my book too. Happpy Friday Pobble.

    Jlee - It does take all kinds . . . there are lots of odd people in the world. Ha. But yeah, neither seems like a good option. Happy Friday Jlee.

    Boxer - You caught that, eh? Ha. I am working on it. They cannot cage me! But I do feel bad about having far less time to devote to this blog & others, but I will get back in the saddle again (lots of animal cliches here). Nice story on 'Babysitting' as I remember it fondly myself. Happy Friday Boxer.
