It’s The Friday 5÷2!

Like last year at this time, Mikey has abandoned us for the sunny shores of Adam Corolla, North Carolina.  We can only imagine that he’s again eating giant tubs of cheese balls, drinking gallons of alcohol and feasting on just a bit too much Nutella.  I only hope that this year’s gluttonous behavior has not turned off his travel companion: Jeopardy! Champion Ty Cone.  After a week of debauchery, it’s needless to say that Mikey is in no shape to write a Friday Five.  So in his absence, Michelle M. and I have decided to each write a Friday 2.5.  Because 2.5 + 2.5 = 5.  I think.  Yay math!  Here goes…

Michelle M.’s First: Harry!

When we bought our house it came with a sunroom.  We found out after the first rainfall that the sunroom came with major problems including leaky walls and a crap foundation. It would have to go.

Harry and his friends were going to tear it out this summer, but Harry ended up doing it all by himself. I mean, I know it’s not like he changed the ballast in a fluorescent light fixture, but still, I’m pretty darn impressed!

Adam’s First:
Topping my list this week is Zoila Chavez, the housekeeper on Bravo’s Flipping Out.  Over five seasons as Jeff Lewis’s house keeper on Flipping Out, Zoila has proven herself to be a smart-mouthed, occasionally working, hilarious addition to the design/house-flipping reality show.  This season, Zoila had a facelift and recovered for a few episodes.  That left Jeff to clean up for himself (including washing Zoila’s underwear) until he could find a temporary replacement.  Hilarity ensued…

Michelle M.’s Second: The Woman in Black. I saw the trailer for this movie the other day. I LOVE scary movies. Especially the ones that keep me from sleeping at night. This one has lots of spooky elements: old timey photos, a decrepit house, rhyming, little girls, creepy ass dolls, creepy ass clown dolls, creepy ass monkey dolls, mud and a ghost. I can hardly wait! But I’ll have to – it doesn’t come out until Feb. 2012 : (.

Adam’s Second: This week, my #2 is Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody. Yesterday I did the unthinkable: I watched straight porn.  And as you know, that’s not my thing.  But lemme explain: I watched Star Trek The Next Generation – A XXX Parody!  It was everything I had hoped for (and some things that I hadn’t hoped for).  The story was great, the actors did a decent job, and the sets and special effects were phenomenal!  Commander Data even had makeup … all over his body!  All that has left me feeling even more excited for my next straight porn experience, Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody.  Check out the totally SFW trailer:

Michelle M.’s Half: Adam’s tags. Sometimes they’re funnier than the posts. Some of my favorites: tam loves worms, chris d. got naked on his blog, harry should keep his day job, michelle doesn’t care about adam’s feelings, mikey loves video posts, I can always lie and pretend my mistakes are games, poor craig probably cried and why do we have to keep looking at polt’s ass?

Adam’s Half: My half this week is none other than Tam!  Tam was a great sport when C&R had a lot of fun with her on our (2-day) “Tam Week.”  On top of that, she also sent me a present this week — for no reason!  Tam sent me a copy of The Vegan Table that she snagged at a Borders going-out-of-business sale when she was in Chicago last week.  She’s so nice!  Thanks Tam!  I’m totally inspired to use this cookbook when Michelle M. and I rip of Anna & Kristina’s Grocery Bag with our new TV series on OWN.  Stay tuned!  I’m so excited!  (And delusional!)

Great idea, Tam!  That’s such a thoughtful idea!

This week’s Friday Five is made up of Harry, Zoila, The Woman In Black, Star Wars Porn, Adam’s Tags and Tam!  What a great mix!  What’s in your Friday Five?

Hey Look –> It's the Friday Five!

It’s been a long time since our last Friday Five.  Too long.  It’s unacceptable!  So Mikey and I are here to remedy that emptiness that you’re feeling.  Or maybe you’re just feeling gas?  Try burping … you might feel better.  Oh great, now you’ve puked a little in your mouth.  Is it better to swallow it back down or spit it out?  To spit or swallow, I never know…  And while you consider your options, check out our five!

It’s Premiere Week! (by Adam)
Just about every network show worth watching premiered their new seasons this week.  Forget about your personal life, your job, your friends and your family commitments… because TV is more important.  I’ve actually given up sleep, and it’s still just the first week!  So far I’ve watched Sons of Anarchy, Parenthood, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Boardwalk Empire, How I Met Your Mother, Weeds, The C Word, The Event, Glee, Undercovers, Modern Family, Law & Order SVU, Cougar Town, Community, 30 Rock, Grey’s Anatomy, The Office, Outsourced, Smallville, Flipping Out, Top Chef and Top Chef Just Desserts.  There might be more.  I think I have a problem.

Mel Gibson’s Fake Mustache (by Adam)
He may be a despicably homophobic, racist and abusive bible-thumping maniac … but have you seen his fake mustache?  It’s hilarious!  It’s glorious!  He actually may have stolen it from Wilford Brimley!  It’s so funny that it makes me want to forgive him for everything he’s ever done (featuring: panting and wheezing between maniacal screams).  I guess he was attempting to evade paparazzi when he dressed up with a fake mustache, nose, glasses, hat and what may or may not have been a pillow under his ugly flannel shirt.  I love it.  I’m suddenly drawn to any of his future projects!  All his mistakes are forgiven!  Oh, except for when he called that cop, “sugar tits.”  Cuz that is far too hilarious to ever forget.

Rachel Maddow: Lesbian Vampire (by Mikey)
Now that the third season of True Blood has come to a lackluster end, I needed to get my blood sucking accomplished through other sources. I was delightfully amused to find the clip below from the Rachel Maddow show in which Ms. Maddow confronts a youtuber who has some interesting theories about her true nature. As usual, Ms. Maddow responds with humor and intelligence.

Positive Moves (by Mikey)
Have you ever wondered how star of stage and screen Ms. Angela Lansbury has been able to keep her sex appeal into her 80s? Well the answer lies in Positive Moves! Positive Moves is her masterful and thorough workout video that shows us all how to maintain a healthy outlook on life and your body. If you have ever wanted to see a woman in her prime rubbing her hands all over her own body this is the video for you! And let’s not even talk about her clothes. They are to die for. And don’t give up too soon…it get’s really sexy around 6:30…

Fall (by Mikey)
We are burning through 2010 at an alarming rate. It seems like just yesterday Adam was pestering me to write my very first very lame blog post, but now I’m a seasoned blogger milking my readers for comments and frustrating Adam with my lack of commas. We are also entering my favorite season: Fall, or as my pretentious priss of a coblogger calls it Autumn. There is a mild chill in the air and the nights are getting progressively cooler. We are bundling up (and some of us even cuddling up) to watch way too much tv and the leaves are slowly changing into the golden ambers, port wine cheese pinks, and pumpkin-inflected oranges. It is quite simply the most beautiful time to be me.

So there you have them folks: Premiere Week, Mel Gibson’s Fake Mustache, Rachel Maddow: Lesbian Vampire, Positive Moves, and Fall. What do you think of our five? Did we miss anything great? Or just tell us what your five favo things are this week? Leave it in the comments peeps. Yes, I did just write peeps. Deal with it.
