It’s Monday, Let’s Get Manic!

Ladies, gentlemen, and all of our readers that fall into a third category, it’s time to CELEBRATE!  In case you didn’t notice, Cocky & Rude just loaded REALLY quickly.  And it will from now on (let’s hope).  We’ve picked up and moved far, far away from the dreaded GoDaddy hosting servers.  No more failure notices, errors or timeouts.  Cocky & Rude is finally a  functional website!  Yay!

And while I’m glowing with happiness about the new server and site performance, I’m also overcome with so many random other thoughts that are just running willy-nilly around my mind!  Oh, that must be because it’s just another Manic Monday!

I’ve blabbed and blabbed about how much I hate weather in past blog posts, but I feel that I should mention it again.  I hate weather, experiencing it, talking about it, looking at it … it’s ALL. JUST. AWFUL.  And the kind of weather that I especially hate is SNOW.  Ugh!  Awful!  In the past few days, it has snowed twice in my area of NJ!  On Saturday I tried to drive and found myself slip sliding all over the road… and it wasn’t pleasant.  AT ALL.  Down with weather!

Are you ready for the Oscars?  The film nominations won’t even be announced until Tuesday, January 25th (and the Academy Awards aren’t airing until February 27th), but I’m already excited!  The Academy Awards is my favorite award show of the year, and this year it’s hosted by my Hollywood boyfriend: James Franco!  Oh, and Anne Hathaway too, she’s alright.  I’m already trying to see as many buzzy movies as possible.  So far I’ve seen Black Swan, The Social Network, The Kids Are All Right, 127 Hours, The King’s Speech, True Grit, Inception, Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work, and Waiting For ‘Superman’.  I just added Winter’s Bone, Toy Story 3, How To Train Your Dragon, and Despicable Me to my Netflix queue.  I really wanna see The Fighter. Oh, and Netflix has Exit Through the Gift Shop available for instant streaming.  Score!

Speaking of The King’s Speech, I saw it on Sunday and it was fantastic!  ((stammer)) ((stammer)) ((stammer)) Go see it now!  (was that in bad taste?  Sorry!)

Who is going to watch the new season of American Idol?  I’m not sure if I even care about the show anymore now that Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler are going to be sitting at the judge’s table.  On the one hand, I love American Idol.  On the other hand, I miss Simon!

One TV show that I have been obsessed with lately is the UK’s Skins. Wow!  British teen drama goodness!  I love flawed teens that smoke, drink, do drugs, get naked and are constantly banging each other.  I watched the first 4 series over the course of two weeks, and now I’m hungry for more.  I only hope the new MTV version (premiering January 17th) is as good.  What’s that you said?  Oh.  Yea, I doubt it too.

So are you skinny yet?  Our new season of Biggest Cock & Rudest Loser is underway.  The first weigh-in results will be announced on Wednesday.  Then it’ll be your job to eliminate the worst team!  We’ll say goodbye to the first eliminated team on Sunday.  It’s so exciting!

Do I use too many exclamation points when I write?  I feel like I’ve used about 400 so far in this post!!!!

Did you notice that I spelled “Bitches” wrong?  Ooops!  Even worse, I did it last time too.  Maybe I’ll fix it for the next time that we take a weekend off.  Or maybe I won’t!

Did you take down your Christmas decorations yet?  It’s January freak’n 10th.  People, it’s time.  Even if you’re too lazy to take down your stuff, please stop turning on your outside holiday lights.  I love Christmas lights just as much as the next person, but it’s time to let go.

Speaking of Christmas, did you check out everyone’s Trashy Gift Exchange presents?  There was so much great crap being mailed all over the continent, it made me wish that I was a dishonest mailman that could have intercepted all of the packages and kept all the loot for myself.  Too bad I never took that damn civil servant exam.

Alright, enough of all that crap — back to Cocky & Rude.  What do you think of the redesign?  There are also a bunch of new bells and whistles that you should check out.  If you use a mobile device, check out our new mobile site.  Have you moused over your Gravatar to see your Hovercard yet?  (You can add to or update your Hovercard at the Gravatar site.)  When you leave a comment, you can now opt to be notified of follow-up comments.  Our search works better now (at the top, right side of your screen).  And you can even subscribe to Cocky & Rude via email (at the bottom of our menu sidebar).

At Cocky & Rude, we’re 370 blog posts in and going strong.  @CockyAndRude on Twitter recently passed the 110 follower mark.  And we must be doing something right, because you’ve left over 3,000 comments on our site.  Thanks for reading today, and every day … and I hope that you enjoy your Manic Monday!

  1. Wow, you covered a lot of territory in that post. My Christmas decorations were all put away on Dec. 29th. I hate having decorations up after Christmas day is over. I never watch Oscar movies, I just tune in for the clothes. And I’m starving and gettin’ skinny. (ha!) I’m just hoping my partner is equally starving for the good of the whole.

    I was surprised about Go Daddy for you because my friend uses Go Daddy and we’ve never had issues. It’s got a bazillion widgets like chat features and carousels and I think we’re over several million hits and it’s worked fine. Bah. Technology. Who the hell knows.

  2. Did Adam just gain a point in the Have You Ever Annoyed Adam quiz?

    I loved the first two series of Skins. The third series was okay, but the new set of characters were less likable that the first cast. I quit watching during the fourth series because I got tired of watching teenagers being horrible to each other without any larger purpose. I quit watching Gossip Girl for the same reason.

    I’m enjoying the improved site performance. It’s made checking out people’s performance last season to give myself an idea of how I am doing a lot easier.

  3. LOVED the first two seasons of Skins. Haven’t seen the third, didn’t even know there was a 4th. Might have to look into that. Didn’t take my Christmas stuff down yet, but I haven’t lit any lights up since Jan 1st.

  4. Like Tam, I like to see what everyone is wearing (at the Oscars). I haven’t seen many of the nominated films – I better get on Netflix.
    I like to watch the bad auditions on Idol. I’m not sure if I’ll stick around after they’re over.
    There’s a white outline around the “Cocky” and “Rude”. Nice.

    P.S. I’m starving.

  5. good news for mikey: they aren’t actually gonna have a biebs episode.

    Anyways, I’ve been so diligent this year about the Oscars. Every year I watch all the nominated movies and this year I’ve actually started BEFORE the nominations are announced. I love love loved The Black Swan and I really want to see the King’s Speech also.

    I haven’t seen Skins, but I just watched Misfits and am starting on Shameless. British tv is so good.

  6. @Nathan I love Shameless! I’m looking forward to the new series in a couple of weeks, although I think it has lost some of its energy in the past few series. I watched the US remake last night, and I’m excited to see what direction they will take the characters.
