Shalom from Canada

As we say in Montreal, "Bon Jour"!

First off, the answer to a very popular question: Yes, I am the voice of the Cottonelle puppy. I did it for free because I love toilet paper so much, I wanted to spread the word about how amazing Cottonelle is on your twosie region (no I didn't do it for free, but I must admit, it is a damn fine product). My twosie region never chafes.

My kissing skills have been nominated for an award. As though it weren't enough of a gift to kiss Natalie Portman, our kiss on the crane has been nominated for "Best Kiss" by the MTV Movie Awards. I also got nominated for breakout male actor and Natalie was nominated for Best Actress. It's up to you, the fans. So please VOTE here so we can bring home the golden popcorn.

Life in Montreal is very fun. It really is a beautiful city and the people are very friendly. I just got back from a very tasty lunch of crepes and Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream. I know the ice cream is from Vermont, but it's close by. The movie is going well, I haven't filmed too much yet, but I start working pretty non-stop on Monday. 

I'm going to NYC for the Scrubs DVD launch party this weekend. I'm also trying to score tickets to Saturday Night Live since I just found out Will Ferrell is hosting, That guy is so funny. I just look at him and I start laughing.

I've become addicted to Halo on xbox. We have crazy amounts of downtime up here, so we've been having late night Halo tournaments and Topspin (the tennis game) battles as well. But it seems whoever's Sampras wins - conspiracy.

My buddy Cary Brothers is opening up for Aqualung all over the country, so if they come to a city near you, go check them out. I've never heard Aqualung, but I do love me some Cary Brothers.

Go check out the movie "Crash". I really enjoyed it.  Also, it was time for Federof to go on American Idol. Not that I watch that crap (I totally do). But that guy can't sing. Cute blonde country singing girl all the way!

Rumor has it Arrested Development will be picked up for 2 seasons. This is a good rumor.

Did anyone see the cartoon on Saturday Night Live where doctors gave Michael Jackson special glasses so every girl he meets looks like Emmanuel Lewis? That was so wrong and HI-larious. Track it down.

Okay, I'm rambling cause I'm crazy, silly high on caffeine right now.

More to come:
xoxo

Good luck with the SNL tickets. I'm sure that'll be a great show. I've tried really hard to get them, and never succeeded. It wouldn't even matter who'd host- it could be the one guy left from Milli Vanilli for all I care. Thanks for giving me hope on a new season of AD. I don't even need to tell you how fantastic that show is.

Posted by: Karen! | May 13, 2005 3:55:29 PM

i was first! that never happens!

Posted by: wes | May 13, 2005 3:56:36 PM

Oh, and I can't even believe that I got first comment. I feel bad stealing the second (or 30th, whenever this goes through) but being that it's Friday the 13th - what stellar luck!

Posted by: Karen...! | May 13, 2005 3:58:05 PM

awww! i love american idol too...i mean-er..crap. yea carrie is adorable. and gold popcorn is awesome, unlike yellow snow, i'm sure it's fine to eat. i still maintain the donald trump commercials are my favorite thing about snl nowadays.

Posted by: leslie | May 13, 2005 3:58:55 PM

I know exactly what you're talking about with Ferrell. I feel the same way about Owen Wilson. Once Owen came into the bookstore where I work and he asked me if we sold music and I started giggling immediately. It must be weird to get laughed at everywhere you go.

(Also, I know this is like the most common type of comment, but you ought to check out ______ band I like, in this case Okkervil River, who I really do think might be just up your alley given what I know about what you like. And thanks for introducing me to Alexi Murdoch, I've seen him play a couple times since GS came out and it's always been religious.)

that leslie girl is crazy!

Posted by: wes | May 13, 2005 4:00:07 PM

that is awesome that your kiss got nominated, I have to admit, that was my favorite scene from the movie. Everytime I watch it I get chills and the strongest desire to kiss Zach Braff. Hey Zach, if you're reading this I know how you could make one girl very happy! ;)
-much love and whatever else you need, Kirsten

Hey there -
Stick with this - I read it religiously and I like hearing what you have to say. Actually I read all kinds of blogs - I'm addicted. It's just so intersting -- everyone's life is a story.

Leslie thinks carrot top is more talented than zach braff!

Posted by: wes | May 13, 2005 4:03:09 PM

Yea, the Natalie Portman/you kiss was amazing. While I was watching the movie I knew that the moment would come, and I though I was going to be jealous. Then it came and I wasn't jealous! I was really happy.. and bouncy. So thanks for making my Garden State experience very happy and un-jealous-y! And bouncy.

Posted by: Brigid | May 13, 2005 4:03:24 PM

Wow, glad to hear you are enjoying Montreal!! Come to Niagara Falls on a day off...it's kinda fun here, and our casinos are nicer than theirs...no doubt you are high on the caffiene from sweet Timmy's. And congratualtions on the best kiss nod. I can tell you that the scene on the abyss with the kiss makes me cry every single time. Have a great time with your movie!

Posted by: melissa | May 13, 2005 4:03:30 PM

I think you will win for best kiss, but will have tough competition with Napolean Dynamite for the other. Good luck!

Posted by: cloudy | May 13, 2005 4:04:40 PM

Good luck with the movie. I can't wait to see it. We need more Zachs in the movie world.

Also, good luck on winning the Mtv awards. You and Natalie deserve it more than anyone else nominated.

Hope all is well.

Take care,
Sarah
