I think we're at our best by the flicker by the light of the TV set.

Paramore Playing God or GaGa?

Paramore’s Hayley Williams seems to have taken a tip from mamma Monster and you know I’m all for it.

In the band’s latest video for the superb “Playing God”, leading lady Hayley poisons her male band mates’ tea. Coincidentally, that’s precisely how Lady GaGa got revenge from an eye-patched Eric Northman Alexander Skaarsgard in her “Paparazzi” video. I guess poisoned tea is the way to get rid of unwanted boys, eh ladies? (Poisoned honey works too – just ask Beyonce.)

Check out Paramore’s “Playing God” video here:

And of course, see GaGa kill off that Viking vamp Skarsgard here:

Little Monster Casserole

I set an extra place setting at our table in case GaGa stopped by with her Little Monster casserole.

She posted this pic on her Facebook page today with the caption: "Little Monster casserole, Brooklyn bitch."

Happy Turkey Day, monsters!

Protecting Myself From 'Glee' Toilet Chatter

I haven't been writing and I owe my readers, especially my number one fan (my mom), a super huge apology. I promise I'll be back with a ton of posts soon. There's a lot going on in the wild and crazy world of Jenny from the Blog. Things are finally coming together for this gal! I'm sorry that in the process of gettin' it together I've neglected you.

So, I'll do my best to make it up to you. As I re-introduce myself to the blogosphere, I bring you a fantastic story that I know you're going to enjoy. . .

Part of the reason I've been MIA is because I recently moved to a big city and started a cool new job at an up and coming website. Awesome, right? I feel so modern and hip and grown-up!

This afternoon I ran to the ladies room before taking off for the Thanksgiving break. All of the stalls but one were filled so I jumped into the vacant one. A group of other girls in the other stalls were in the midst of discussing last nights episode of Glee

Now, in addition to the move and the new job, add to the mix a brand new apartment - an apartment that is still without a television. How am I surviving? Not entirely sure, but I do intend on buying an HD-TV on Black Friday with the little amount of money I have leftover from first months rent, the security deposit, the brokers' fee, my monthly metro card, etc. Whatever, a good television is mandatory.

So anyways, the girls are talking about Glee, which I of course missed since I am sans television. I had no idea who these ladies were, as the up and coming website employees a lot of people, many of whom I haven't yet met.

This is what I overheard:

"Did you finish watching Glee last night?"
"Yeah! It was so good! It was sad, but so great!"

I became frantic. Good?! Sad?! What the heck did I miss? What was I to do? They were going to ruin it for me! I could NOT allow them to continue this Glee toilet chatter. Their conversation needed to end before I swirlied myself into oblivion. How could I escape this tragedy?

Well, I did what any Gleek would do in my position. I swallowed my pride, took a deep breath and shouted from my stall at the end of the row, "NO SPOILERS!"

Silence. Not even a laugh. Not even a forced laugh. Just silence.

And then a quiet, questioning, "Ha...who is that?"

Me: "Ha! Ha! Ha! It's Jenny!" (As if they have any idea who Jenny is.) "Sorry! I missed the ep!"


Alas, I made an ass of myself, all in the name of Mr. Schuester.

I hope you've missed me. I hope you're glad to have me back. I hope you want to hear more about my exciting new life in this big city. Cross your fingers I don't get stampeded at Walmart as I attempt to purchase said HD-TV.

As I excuse myself to watch "Furt" I leave you with this fun clip from a recent Glee episode (hope you love the rendition as much as I did!):

Fun fact! Glee's cover of Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" is now the shows fastest selling single to date, blowing "Don't Stop Believin'" out of the water.  Do it, Blaine!

Samantha's 'Vampire Diaries' Text Message Commentary

I FINALLY convinced someone to watch The Vampire Diaries and I could not be more pleased with her reaction. She's been texting me her thoughts on the blood, drama and sex appeal of the show every step of the way.

Samantha, thank you for having faith in me and trusting me when I told you Vampire Diaries was totally worth your time. As an avid Edward Cullen/Eric Northman fan, I knew you'd fall fast and hard for the Salvatore brothers. As I mentioned to you earlier, your Vampire Diaries commentary text messages are my favorite thing in my life right now. Keep 'em coming, girlfriend.

I've decided to string said text messages together for entertainment purposes. Keep in mind, these text messages blew up my iPhone in a matter of maybe one week. WARNING: Sam tends to overuse exclamation points. Don't be frightened. She's a jolly, jubilant gal with lots of much-appreciated pep. See below:

  • Ok, so Vampire Diaries gets a huge thumbs up
  • OMG! Yes yes yes! That's Boone right?
  • I like Matt - the ex bf.
  • OMG I love, I repeat, LOVE Vampire Diaries
  • I just watched the episode where Damon killed the teacher and Stefan made the football team
  • Vampire Diaries...can they revoke an invitation into the house? Like on True Blood? (NOTE: I also got this girl hooked on True Blood. She dressed as a Merlotte's waitress for Halloween. I'm so proud.)
  • OMG I'm so glad Vicki is dead and by the way and I love Lexy.
  • O. M. G. Damon. Stefan. I love them both in their own way! And yes, thank you Vampire Diaries for writing in that magic (re: Damon dancing around the house with his shirt off before turning Vicki into a vampire and killing her)
  • I really like Matt! Haha!
  • I'm a full on Stefan lover.
  • OMG DAMON KILLED LEXY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Seriously sad about Lexy...
  • I'm so sad for Damon. And Stefan and Elena and everyone at the end of this episode.
  • God, Damon is so HOT! I cannot even stand it!!!!!!!!!!!
  • I kind of want them to get the tomb open.
  • OMG!!!!!! They all just went into the tomb, except Stefan
  • OMG I'm so sad for Damon. So so sad!!!!!!!
  • Stefan has a drug/blood problem! Uh oooooooooooohhhhhhhhhh!!!!
  • Of course Damon steps in to escort Elena at the ball.... How chivalrous!
  • O.M.G. I love it!!
  • I'm so close to the finale!!!!!!!

We watched the finale together Friday night per my insistence. I wanted to witness her reaction to Catherine and Damon's kiss. A reaction to a scene of that caliber canNOT be translated in a text message. Sam's fingers would have broken at the attempt. She freaked like I knew she would. She is now onto season two. Here are her reactions thus far:

  • Damon is SO HOT!!!!!!!!
  • Ommmmmmmmggggggg Damon and Katherine.... Omggggggg!
  • OMG! She never loved him! It was always Stefan! WTFFFFFFFF? I'll love Damon.
  • I do NOT want Elena to HATE Damon! And I think Tyler's a werewolf or something!
  • He has to be something supernatural!!!!!!!!
  • Ok... I just finished ep 1 of season 2... I'll prob watch at least 2 more eps tonight haha
  • Ah to the werewolf thing! And I hate Katherine! And love Caroline as a vamp!
  • And I don't believe that Damon has lost Elena forever...
  • Katherine is a bitch and I hope Stephan kills her... I really thought he was gonna kiss her!!!!!
I'm SO happy to have someone to finish watching season two with :)

Searching for Dexter, Take 2

The hunt for Dexter Morgan lives on! This morning I woke to an email from a second guy who dressed as my fave blood spatter expert this Halloween. Good morning! Unfortunately, he's not my Dexter. Like Danny S., he went with Dexter's "kill" look as opposed to his everyday, pretend-he's-a-normal-dude look. Now, for those of you who aren't familiar with the television series, please don't get the wrong idea. My mother, for instance, is absolutely horrified. I tried to explain that Dexter is a good serial killer. For whatever reason she couldn't comprehend that and fears I'm inviting a serial killer to hunt me.

My new guy attached pictures of himself in his kill suit (calm down, mom) to his email, which, as you can see, he addressed to Rita. LOVE! His costume rocks. Thanks for sharing, Dex! Check out his note and costume here:

Dear Rita, 

I live in Williamsburg and I was also parading around as Dexter Morgan. I doubt I'm the man you ran into, but I thought I would send you some pics. Please enjoy!

- Dex

Halloween Fangbangin': The Best Sookie, Bill, Eric

I'm True Blood missing to the max. Luckily, I have an excuse to write about it. While I'm sure you witnessed many Sookies, Bills and Erics while trick or treating this Halloween season, I promise you these take the prize.


Never before have I been more proud of my sibling. She looks just like that Bon Temps waitress (!) complete with an official Merlotte's t-shirt, bottle of True Blood and bloody vampire bite oozing on her neck! What an adorable southern belle she makes. Julie said while dressed like Sookie, people yelled "Sukkeh!" at her all night like that annoying Bill Compton, which brings me to my next costume winner...


Scranton's Dunder Mifflin Office held a costume contest last Thursday. While I didn't watch the entire episode but am pretty certain Andy didn't win, his version of True Blood's lamest vampire cracked me up. I seriously appreciate the receding hairline and man bangs. Bill's got nothing on his vampire nemesis...


Meet my friend Eric Kyle. Despite what he may tell you, I deserve full credit for this incredible costume. If it weren't for me, he never would have started watching True Blood. I begged him for months to watch it with me, desperately attempting to convince him of it's bloody brilliance. He refused for awhile until finally giving in. And voilà! Here you have the best Eric Northman costume you will ever see in your life. 

If you know me, you know how obsessed in love with the viking vampire I am and have been since season one, episode four when we first met him in Fangtasia. Be still my heart. Therefore, having the above-pictured Eric Northman lookalike in my life is equal parts lucky and torturous. To be honest, I cannot understand how it is possible. How?! How is it possible?! Why?!

A bloody tear! Poor guy needs his Sookie. Or perhaps his Yvetta...
Since Eric Kyle lives in another state, I was unable to witness this transformation in person. It's probably for the best. While I'm terribly, painfully jealous of everyone who saw him last night, I don't want to know what I would have done if I had the opportunity to stand before him. Did I mention he's as tall as the viking with an equally powerful presence that demands your attention? The resemblance is uncanny! And deadly. Be still my heart!
