This is random, and so is your face

*Yeah, I’m about to tell you random things that are on my mind, mostly because I have a few things on my mind that even my genius (bahahaha) brain cannot connect in comprehensible paragraphs.

*Scrubs is coming back on December 1!!!!

Wait, rewind…. I don’t actually know how I really feel about this.

Let me backtrack a bit.

Have I mentioned my obsession with this show? It’s almost as big as my obsession with John Cusack if that tells you anything. I know it’s a show that people either love or hate, and I love love love it.  Or at least I did. Last season was supposed the last, but ABC decided to renew it last minute. Only it’s not the Scrubs that we know and loved seasons 1,2,3,4,5, and 8… Season 9 is basically supposed to be  a “New Class” version of the show. As I understand it, Zach Braff is only scheduled to be in a few of the episodes, and the focus is mostly on a group of med-students.

As much as I love this show, I’m not sure how I feel about them trying to stretch it out “Saved By the Bell” style. I think sometimes it’s just best to let good things die when they are still good. I’m not going to write it off completely, but I’m definitely on the fence. Plus, Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence has already given us Cougar Town this year, so I will still have that to be thankful for.

*This is semi-related, but that’s ok. In a Scrubs episode a while back, JD claimed that “So is your face” is the perfect comeback. I believe he said “So is your face, always makes sense.” As far as I am concerned, he was correct. I have been using “your face” in some form, as a comeback for everything  for at least three years now, and it hasn’t gotten old yet… at least not for me.

Check it:

An asshole: Ughh… You are always late!!

Me: Your face is always late…

An asshole: Your breath smells like turkey shiz.

Me: So does your face…

An asshole: Sphincter says what?

Me: So does your face…

See? Never fails.

*OK, this one is also related. I guess I could have written this as a normal post, but I’m not turning back now people.  Has anyone else noticed how many famous people are doing voice-overs for commercials lately? I get a little distracted every time I hear Zach Braff’s voice doing the new Brita water commercials. He also did the puppy’s voice in the Cottenelle commercials a while back. Don’t get me wrong, I get a little excited in all the right places every time I hear his voice, but I don’t understand why companies get famous people to do their voice work for commercials. I doubt people who aren’t major fans even recognize them, and it seems it would be a lot cheaper to get lesser known people to voice them.

*Back when I didn’t have cable and watched nothing and Scrubs episodes on DVD, I got so used to hearing Zach Braff’s voice narrate the show-that he basically started doing it for me in my head. I didn’t mind a bit. The only person I would rather have do the job is Morgan Freeman.

*I know it’s a little bit early (37 days til Christmas, but who’s counting?)  but I’m really excited about the holidays. I love putting up a tree and decorations. I love Christmas scented candles. And I love holiday movies.  I’m not even the least bit embarrassed admitting to the world that I’ve seen every Lifetime and ABC family Christmas movie that has come out in the last 10 years. Not to mention the count on the classics like “Its a Wonderful Life,” “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation,” “A Christmas Story,” and “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”

But if you’re a real Scrubs Christmas fan, surely you’ve seen this?!

*For those of you still reading, I promise I’m done with the Scrubs talk. I pinky promise. Now I’m just gonna straight up bitch for a second! My roommates have decided to see how long we can go before we turn the heat on this winter. I know, yes it’s true, I live in Texas. It probably won’t snow once this season… but still. It’s cold to me! There is nothing that I hate more than waking up so cold that I can’t get out of bed. If this goes on for much longer, I will definitely need to take action. Please let me know if you have any ideas.

*My roomies have also taken to making or buying deserts at least once a week. This week they made homemade pumpkin pie. My waistline, my sleep schedule, my trainer, and my back right cavity molar all hate you right now. But my heart is happy.

*I am going to take a moment to complain once more about my face. I’m 27 years old. I have always been one of those people who could boast “I never wash my face, and I never get pimples.” I am now eating my words in a major way.

*If there is anyone in the world with whom I have an obsession that even comes close to that of John Cusack, it is Zach Braff. And also, I am a liar.

    I hated being in the dorms this time of year, they'd turn the heat on (the only other of the two settings being 'off') and it would get to be 95 degrees in the dorms. Being a WI native, I fought a constant battle with my native Texan roommate as he'd still sleep in longjohns and his sleeping bag, and I'd keep opening the window and turning on my fan.

    Damn roomates.

    I'm skeptical about this season's Scrubs. As much as I've enjoyed the show over the past decade, I hate to write this, but I feel like the show may be done.

    Regarding voice narration, James Earl Jones would be a solid choice on any occasion!

  • Jessica

    We had to stop watching Scurbs. . It got too, well, boring I guess. It was sad because it used to be really good but I am ready for all the Christmas movies. We've already started watching the Christmas movies on family nights. The kids love it!

  • Kirsten

    Okay I'm going to go all list style for this

    1. I LOVE scrubs too. At first I didnt like it but then I ended up watching every single episode, multiple times. For a while I had a crush on Dr. Cox. I also had a crush on Dr. House at this same time. I apparently was going through some asshole guy stage, I'm not really sure. Anyways, I think its kind of weird they added this season on. I thought last season's ending was good and I'm worried the show is just going to suck now with the new class! Okay thats that on scrubs

    2. For the past few weeks my boyfriend has insisted on using “your face” for every single thing he says to me. EVERYTHING. He doesnt even watch Scrubs so it must have started randomly. In the beginning it was funny but now I just yell whenever he says anything that starts with “your f…”

    3. I'm currently in bed under the covers because it is so cold in my apartment. My problem is different than yours though slightly. My roommates think it is necessary to have the AIR CONDITIONING on. In November. I live in California but still it is very cold and currently I'm refusing to get out of bed because I know I'll just probably freeze to death.

    In the words of Congressman Joe Wilson, in which will forever echo in eternity…

    YOU LIE!

    …Sorry. I had to do it.

    And Zach Braff is pretty badass. I loved Scrubs. But now I won't watch it because the new people. Thanks for the heads up.

    Your face.

  • mylittlebecky

    this one time, this dog was in bad shape, we were waiting for the owners to come and dr jerkass (alias) was jerkily explaining the ecg to a co-worker and he said, “that's the bad kind.” and i said, “SO'S YOUR FACE!”


    anywho. i am in love with scrubs and i am not in love with this new abc scrubs. it makes me sad. classic scrubs.

  • kimwithak

    For the heat you could get a Snuggie! Just kidding…

  • starzskymoon

    Um, Zach is a total hottie. I'd do him in a second. For realz. Girl, somehow, one day, I'm gonna get my ass to Dallas and we're gonna PAINT THE TOWN EFFING RED TOGETHER. And then watch Serendipity, Must Love Dogs (ONE OF MY FAVS TOO!), Con Air, etc. etc.

    PS – do you have a love for Hugh Grant, too???

  • kathryn

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed Zach's voice on those Cottonelle ads…and why DO they use celebs for the voice-overs? I've heard even Clooney's done some foreign commercial voice-overs. I don't get it.

    I also love Scrubs, but can't imagine it if they take away the dynamics and relationships that helped make the show work. Plus, several of the original characters are in other sitcoms, so who knows? We'll try to view it with an open mind, right?


  • Matt_J

    Maybe your room mates are perverts and are just trying to reap the…ahem…benefits of you walking around in a cold house? I dunno. Maybe you should post more pictures.

    Wait. Did that sound creepy? Because I meant it to.

  • brad

    Face. Such a good comeback. I shorten it when I use it. I just say “FACE,” firmly, and everybody knows I mean business.

  • meg

    I have to admit I've never even watched one episode of Scrubs, but I must agree that “so is your face” really is the best comeback. I enjoy saying it as much as I enjoy calling people “douche canoes”.

  • CandiceW

    UGH they're totally gonna kill Scrubs. I haven't watched that show in awhile. Do you watch It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia? If not, you MUST.

  • CarissaJaded

    Well I can totally relate to your roommate then. We don't do well in the cold!

  • CarissaJaded

    I am sad to say you might be right about scrubs, and it may be for the best…

    And good choice on a life narrator!

  • CarissaJaded

    Boring!! Well it did get bad for a while.. Seasons 5-7 were a little weak but last season got back to the old scrubs (in my opinion.)

    I love Christmas movies. I am such a cheezeball!

  • CarissaJaded

    1. I also have a crush on Dr. Cox. But more of one on JD. I kind of dig house too… There is something to be said for assholes.. I am definitely attracted to them.. (people not anatomy.)

    2. hahaha you're boyfriend is awesome!

    3. They still have the air on? What am I talking about, mine make sure the house gets no higher than 68 all year long. I nearly froze as much when it was 104 outside. Yeah.. it's not a saving money thing so much as they just like being cold. Or maybe they just want me to suffer!

  • CarissaJaded

    haha, After that incident I went around saying “You Lie” to everything too.

    Um,no Your face!

  • CarissaJaded

    I definitely find ways to use it daily!

    And me too…I guess there are always reruns!

  • CarissaJaded

    Not kidding! heart snuggies!

  • CarissaJaded

    Yeah he is!!

    AND OMG YES! Seriously you can come anytime!!!

    And as for Hugh Grant, Does the fact that I can recite Knotting Hill without the movie being on, answer your question?

  • CarissaJaded

    I have no earthly idea.. I think I've heard Clooney too, and I swear I heard Danny Devito the other day.

    I guess I'm gonna give it a shot!!

  • CarissaJaded

    Eh, their gay, so I doubt they care except to make fun of me for having saggy boobs.

    haha and yes it did Creepy McCreeperson!

  • CarissaJaded

    How have I never shortened it!? I'm so doing this next opportunity I get.

  • CarissaJaded

    I have never heard “douche canoe” but you can expect to be seeing it in my posts very soon. I just texted to my friend that he was a douche canoe.

    And you should really go back and watch the old episodes.. you'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll be very sad when you notice a change…

  • CarissaJaded

    LOVE me some IASIP. I basically live for Thursdays. The next obsession over a celebrity post will probably be over Charlie. I heart him.

  • starzskymoon

    Teeheeeee. I figured if you're like me, you're love for John Cusack would equate to a love for Hugh Grant :)

  • ambermurphy

    I love Carla, Turk, the janitor, Perry, Jordan, the quartet music, Eliot Reed (Reid?), internal monolgue, the soundtrack (This is the first day of my life/ I think I was born right in the doorway… who SINGS that?)

    And all things Scrubs.

  • CarissaJaded

    Bright Eyes! First Day of my life!!! My favorite song of all time!!!

  • nikki224

    OK…must delurk (hi!) I'm a Texan (grew up in Houston area) who has now lived in Illinois (90 miles from Chicago in a small town) for 2 years. I love the much lower a/c costs up here (hi…I don't care if it gets “hot”. IL hot does NOT equal TX hot!) but heat is EXPENSIVE dammit. So I play the “how long can I wait to turn on my heat” game in IL which results in me doing stupid things like wearing 598 layers in my house and sleeping with flannel sheets AND a heating pad. What…that's not safe? Neither is the heating bill when I actually heat my drafty old house to a Texan-friendly temperature! I bet y'all can go all winter without turning on heat. I dare you!

  • CarissaJaded

    Glad you delurked! HIIII!!

    I do feel kind of bad knowing there are alot of people who have it a lot worse than me… but that's why I still live here!! :)
    I'm kind of jealous of you living in Chicago though…. I always wanted to live in Chicago, until I went there in the winter… Now I just don't know anymore.
    We probably could go all winter without heat, but I'm not sure I'm that brave! Do you have a blog?

  • deeptesh

    Interesting videos.n I quite luv tyhe way u write.C my new post on my blog as well.I'll b glad

  • PJ

    When I need to laugh, you come through for me! SCORE!

    Yesterday I told you I loved John Cusack; today I'm going to tell you I've never seen Scrubs.

    Thanks for your kind words on my post about Scotty yesterday.

    BTW, your TAG CLOUD over in your side bar is a post in itself! Too good!

  • nikki224

    Well 'm not actually IN Chicago, but I'm close enough to visit! You're right though. In the summer I love it…in the winter? Not so much!
    I have a running blog (yes…I'm one of those crazies) and I thought I linked to it but apparently I failed.

  • CarissaJaded


    You should definitely check scrubs out on some down time… it is amaz—-ing!

    I dunno if they can go wrong imitating Saved by the Bell. Television at its best, that was.

    And so is your face.

    P.S. I've barely turned my heat on here in Canada. I'm freezing most of the time, but heat costs money.

    Two fellas are fishing in a boat under a bridge.

    One looks up and sees a funeral procession starting across the bridge.

    He stands up, takes off his cap, and bows his head.

    The procession crosses the bridge and the man puts on his cap, picks up his rod and reel, and continues fishing.

    The other guy says, “That was touching. I didn't know you had it in you.”

    The first guy responds, “Well, I guess it was the thing to do – after all, I was married to her for 40 years.”

    A woman named Shirley was from Beverly Hills. One day, she had a heart attack and was taken to Cedars Sinai hospital. While on the operating table, she had a near-death experience. She saw God and asked, “Is this it?”

    God said, “No, you have another 30 to 40 years to live.”

    Upon her recovery, she decided to stay in the hospital and have collagen shots, cheek implants, a face lift, liposuction and breast augmentation. She even had someone dye her hair. She figured since she had another 30 to 40 years, she might as well make the most of it.

    She walked out of Cedars Sinai lobby after the last operation and was killed by an ambulance speeding up
