The Sad Part Is: If You Know What I'm Talking About, You Need Improvement Too...

As I sit in church, I'm bothered by how much the new priest reminds me of someone.

Not a good someone.  

Not a friend or some trusted confidante.  There's some real negative emotions attached to this.

I have a bad habit of doing that.  I see physical similarities in people, mistake the similarities for auras, then pre-judge people based on what the other person was like.  I once told girl she reminded me of Bono.  At the time I thought it has something to do with auras and how they were both outspoken activists who advocated for a crapload of causes.  Turns out, it was really only cuz they both share that weird little bump on the bridge of their noses.  Either way, I don't think she was impressed.

But I'm staring at the priest and looking at the slightly greasy, balding pate.  The round cheeks that don't fit in with the rest of the face.  That little smile after every sentence like he just said something really insightful.

And then it dawns on me.

He looks like "The Situation".   

I want to poke the old lady to my left and whisper, "Hey.  Doesn't the new padre look like Mike "The Situation" from Jersey Shore?"  but it seems inappropriate.

Not to mention she'll have no idea what I'm talking about.

Then I wonder, who here *would* know what I was talking about?  How many people who watch Jersey Shore, also show up for mass at 9 am on Sunday morning?  I might as well ask if anyone recorded last night's South Park, no?

There's a part of me that tries to justify this as having a complex personality.

But I think you and I both know that I really need to upgrade my TV viewing.

Totally know what you're talking about. I've never watched Jersey Shore, but being a TMZ junkie (and I just know y'all must keep up with TMZ), I am familiar with the phenomenon. You know you've made it when there are, not one, but two porn spin offs of your show (information via TMZ ... I really wouldn't know otherwise).
Soooo ... did he show you his abs at the end of mass?

Ewww... I was *very* deliberate in treading carefully around this one, seeing as how it's a priest and all.

Do you superficial? ( ) Equally, if not more, amusing than TMZ.

Just checked it out. Good lord.
It's a little sad that I'm spending my Friday night having a beer, eating peanut butter cookies and witnessing a shocking act by Hilary Duff.
Oh ... another fun one is
