Several listeners pointed me to Jenna Fischer's most recent blog post where she talks about the press and how wrong they can get things some times.  Case in point?

"Over Christmas, I saw a report in Star Magazine that I'm dating David Spade.  Imagine my surprise as… I'VE NEVER MET David Spade!  What a milestone!  My first TOTALLY 100% UNTRUE tabloid report!  I've always been very cynical when I hear celebrities say that a story is fake.  I figure SOME part of every story must be true right?  NO WAY!  I have no idea how they are allowed to get away with stuff like that!  My publicist said that no one ever called to check the facts of the David Spade story.  Which seems strange to me.  I have a minor in journalism and I was told to never run a story without 2 reliable sources to back it up.  But, while we are on the subject, some other people I've never met are: Orlando Bloom, Colin Farrell, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Brad Pitt.  Maybe I can fictionally date some of those guys too?"

Can I just be the first to say "whew"?  I KNEW that couldn't be true.


I miss the show...

Kevin and I are trying to record THE ALLIANCE episode sometime soon.  I'm right in the middle of semester final exams, so I'm a bit swamped right now.  Look for an update in the next week or so.

(oh, and BTW, according to Jenna "they're real"! ;) )
