Matt LeBlanc

I never ever ever watch Friends. But when I do, I like Joey the best. Actually, I just like Matt LeBlanc — he’s a great guy. I know this for a fact because I’ve seen him on tv.

Excerpt from an Entertainment Weekly interview:

Q: When you meet people, do they always make you say [your catchphrase “How you doin?”]

A: Yeah, and they get really pissed off if you don’t. I’ll do it for kids almost every time. A little kid, man — you just can’t say no to a little kid. But like if there’s some meathead in a restaurant, “Hey, do it! Gimme one! How you doin?! Just do it! Come on!” I just say [acting confused], “How you doin? What? What do you want me to do?”

Euros

My brand new keyboard has a “Euro” key. I don’t have the slightest idea what I’m going to do with it, but that hasn’t stopped me from boasting to my co-workers.

Speaking of which, don’t, for the love of all that’s holy, eat your Euro notes. Note that the reporter says that “eating more than 400 new euro notes could make you ill” (i.e. you can safely eat 400), when in fact the doctor clearly states that “there is a product in the ink which, if you ingest 400 notes, become toxic” That’s the kind of sloppy reporting that’s going to get someone killed!

Cailin

This was driving me craaaazy. I could vaguely remember exactly two lines from a year-old pop song called “Kaitlin” or “Caitlin” or something. Finally, in desperation, I wrote my local radio station:

Early in 2001, there was song getting lots of play on the radio. It was a poppy little tune about a girl, and some DJ said that it had actually been written by the lead singer for his daughter. The daughter’s name, as near as I can remember, was “Kaitlyn,” or some variation thereof (e.g. Catlyn), or something similar (e.g. Kathrine).

Two lines of the chorus when something like

“When everything just falls to bits
I think of you, my own Kaitlyn …”

… or somesuch …

The band was not a well known one. This song rapidly faded into oscurity. [The radio station] Star 101.5 may have been the only station in the Seattle area playing it.

Any clue?

And, moments after hitting [send], it came to me. “Cailin” by Unwritten Law. Boo-ya!
