On The Road Again

...And in the air. Again.


Through the wonders of paparazzi photos and blog sightings, it's been a fun few days with Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon in Manhattan. We've checked out all their favorite restaurants, clothing stores, tchotchke shops. We've researched the play they went to see, the Women's Empowerment bracelet Reese debuted at U.N. , the old friends they ran into.

And the best friend who's traveling with them.

Hello best friend.

Wonder where Jake and best friend are off to next? Could they be heading to the SXSW Film Festival for the premiere of Crawford perhaps??? Only time, and paparazzi photos and blog sightings, will tell.

Nice to see Jake hanging out with Chris.

How annoying for the Jake-haters, who have spent months insisting that Reese "won't allow" Jake to see his friends. Or whatever. Another fantasy bites the dust!

plum said...

Never understood that myself. Just as Jake has a life, a girlfriend and a career I hope his friends have the same. Which sometimes makes it difficult to get together, different schedules and whatnot, different parts of the country, etc.

suvee said...

How wonderful to see Chris again! I've missed him. Bless his heart, he seems to be such a serious boy..... would love to see a big smile on his face.

This has been such a great week for J & R news and pics.... I'm sorry it's ending. :(

Thank you UV and FL for doing your usual phenomenal job of bringing us the latest and greatest from Jake World!

office of nancy pelosi said...

I love seeing all of them togetherand you are right suvee, Chris is so serious,i would love to see him smile.

We have been spoiled this past few days, sigh.

bobbyanna said...

You guys are awesome in your brilliance. Yay, Chris!!!

FluorescentLamp said...

He's got a great poker face that Chris. ;-)

I think I've seen him smile though. Once or twice. Somewhere.

chica said...

Sad to see them depart New York but from all the sightings and pics it seems like they had a good time and It was wonderful to see Reese at the UN, I bought an empowerment braclet from the Avon sight.

I think Reese is due back on the set of Four Christmases to wrap that film.

sass said...

Evening,
Sorry to see them go, but it seemed like they had a great time.
And Chris is a serious chap...handsome and serious...and protective of Jake..or so it seems sometimes. TY for all the fun...it's been great!

suvee said...

Did anyone else notice the flip flops hanging off of Chris' bag (back pack)? Where would you need to take flip flops in early March?

I lived in Austin for many years..... it could easily be sandal weather there now. Of course, California's probably pretty balmy too.....

bobbyanna said...

I remember when I almost passed out...(wellll sort of...) when I laid eyes on Chris' Gorgeousness in the actual flesh! (At TIFF) And he was smiling.(Not at me...he was just smiling.) It seemed like a kind smile. Anyway, I like him. He's real purty. :)

FluorescentLamp said...

It was the heat. ;-)

Oh and the Chris-ness of it all.

Hee.

agent_krycek said...

Ahh, so nice to see Chris again, who is a legand of hotness in himself :D I wonder if he realises there's a significant portion of the Jake fandom who appreciate him as well ;)

Fab week to Jake and Reese news, thanks to everyone who provided links, pictures etc, and UV & FL for updating this lovely place

bobbyanna said...

Righhhtt, FL. There was a lot of heat!:)

Agent K, as I was standing on the wrong(!) side of a red velvet rope in a very crowded theater lobby at TIFF, I took an unscientific survey. When Chris came round the corner on his way inside the auditorium to take his seat, for every single whispered, "Who's that?" There were seventy five thousand (!) "OMG! There's Chris!" Including a very pretty young lady, standing not far from me who gasped, giggled, and nearly fainted after turning sixteen shades of red, but who, at this moment shall remain nameless, tho still probably able to summon a degree of enthusiam at veiwing pictures of our "Best Friend!"
I gotta say. Chris is all that and a bag of chips!

sass said...

Morning babblers,
The day is starting out beautifully, but alas no more Jake/Reese sightings.

bobbyanna, more on the Chris sighting please.:)

I would like to share two photos, two very cute photos, reminiscent of a certain gentleman;) who is almost always connected to his phone...and has transferred said habit to his lady love. That is one happy woman...she deserves every minute of it as does Jake:)



Red phone..where is blue phone?:)

Happy with Red phone Today show


I read someplace, they were texting in the theater, and hugging and kissing.

I like that.

I want to again thank UV and FL and of course everyone here; this is a wonderful fun place to hang, and chat about our favorite lovers.
xoxoxoxo

bobbyanna said...

sass, there is nothing more to tell, really. It happened so fast. I was with friends in a very crowded lobby waiting to go into the screening for Rendition. We were behind the rope line watching as VIPs were dribbling in and Chris came in before Jake did. He was by himself, he is tall and slender. He is gorgeous. Pictures do not do him justice. Very sexy guy. It took all of two seconds. Then it was over...and then Jake came in with a group of people...that's when Jake and I had our "conversation(!)"

Me: "Jake! Saw it this morning! It is tremendous! "
Jake: " Great! Thanks!"

bobbyanna said...

I hope y'all know I'm joking about describing my encounter as a "conversation(!)"

get real said...

One more NY sighting from Page Six

And have to agree with everyone else and thank UV and FL for the great Gyllen-news in NYC! And of course everyone else who provided videos/links/sightings, etc.

Bobbyanna, love your Chris "sighting"! He is a beauty just like his Bff Jake. ;p

sheba baby said...

Thanks for the links get real and monica! Jake is such a gentleman and protective as well in that video.

It doesn't look like Jake and Reese stayed around for the 2nd act, LOL!! Didn't someone post a sighting of them on Perez on Sunday, the day of the play placing them around 34th St and it looked like they were shopping?

sass said...

TY bobbyanna, tall and gorgeous eh? Lucky girl you are. Everyone says the same thing about him, bloggers, forum folks, newspeople, everyone, and he thinks of himself as a tube of Crest toothpaste wearing coke bottle glasses;)

agent_krycek said...

I really wish I could put my finger on who Chris reminds me of, I don't think its a strong resemblance, but there's something itching at the back of my brain every time I see a photo of him

We have been spoiled this week, so I suppose we're in for a dry spell now (although I hope not), just flagging up 22nd March as a certain little Avon reps birthday - wonder if any new jewellrey will appear ;)

shondra said...

agent krycek: When Chris has a little hair on his face he IMO looks a bit like Colin Farrell!!

Yes we have been spoiled, sigh.

Anonymous said...

sheba baby,

The PerezHilton sighting was at four-thirty pm, the play was later at night. They had dinner with friends at Prune in between.

FluorescentLamp said...

Anon, it's been reported in several places they attended the matinee performance of August: Osage County. Which matinee began at 3.00. So all the sightings are completely plausible.

Anonymous said...

Okay, thanks FL.

I think the biggest confusion is regarding the shopping and the sighting on 38th street. People assume the two were the same, but they were actually two different sightings. I think the shopping came earlier, after brunch in the Park.

They could have just come back from the play when they were spotted on 38th street.

Narcissa said...

Reese,looking very pretty, wearing the bracelet, on the homepage of the Avon site:

I like that.


Personally, I think it's the height of rudeness and very disrespectful to the actors on stage. I would have expected better from Jake. I'm sure he wouldn't have appreciated people behaving like that when he was on stage in London.

UltraViolet said...

I think it's rude, too, anon. We do know Jake is attached to his phone, but they play's the thing!

Of course, this could also be an exaggerated report.

Also, I can't believe I haven't commented on this post yet. So, so nice to see Chris again. I wonder if the poor guy knows Jake fans watch out for him, too!

get real said...

While I believe they were at the play, and even though I linked the Page Six story here, I take the texting stuff with a grain of salt. They are after all a gossip column. I can't imagine Jake or Reese being that rude to text during the play. JMO

sass said...

I am not a lover of texting anon.

I enjoyed reading about the hugs and kisses, and I'm partial to my fav Heath/Joker phrase--I Like That--because I am still looking forward to seeing Heath in TDK this summer.

I should stop posting so quickly for a while until I become accustomed to my new laptop. *grin* I've only used Desk Top computers; my new keyboard makes me miss my mouse--I need a mouse--and I want to have better handle on what my brain is trying to say.

Which brings me to this post...which is necessary, I reread what I posted.
I have had to explain myself to another blog owner, when I kept switching names, getting her name wrong, though unintentionally, after she had told me twice, and I will share here.
If I mentioned this already, please...my bad.
I have sustained, a substantial brain injury and I am being treated for it by an excellent neurologist and neuro-otologist . I am also going to attend cognition training. I say all that to ask the owners here for help and a bit of slack.
Please feel free to remove any posts by me, that are off center and leave me a note prn. I love too chat and will happily continue, no problems.
I never ever thought Jake and Reese were texting; Jake was on stage once, and he of all people would be aware of the ramifications of disturbing the actors and the production.
Now, where is Jake? lol

Narcissa said...

Anybody else having problems imagining sass making "off center" posts? :)

UV I would like to commend your exemplary patience on another board.

UltraViolet said...

We're with you, sass!

And thanks, Narcissa. I'm having trouble laughing, because I can hear my mother's laughter from beyond that anyone would call me "patient!"

Hee.

I'm trying to be civil, so we can all maybe have fun again. What a concept.

NY week was so much fun. I miss wondering if we'd get new pics.

bobbyanna said...

sass! LOL! All I can say is, you're doing fine. Truly. Honestly, you are doing really well right now, but I admire you so much for going forward with the cognition training.

suvee said...

sass, I switched over to a MacBook about 2 years ago.... and I STILL haven't given up my mouse! There is just no way I can get comfortable with the scroll function.

I'm hoping we won't have an extended Jake news drought...... SXSW sure seems to be a logical destination for Jake and Chris. I'm sure there are enough Gyllenhaalics in Austin that we will hear something if he is there.

BTW, Naomi's bd is March 15...... wonder if he was shopping for her present in NYC?

Narcissa said...

It's not long to Reese's birthday, also.

suvee said...

"It's not long to Reese's birthday, also."

Yeah, poor guy..... he has to take care of mom and GF in a one week period of time! :)

bobbyanna said...

Bet Reese was shopping for Naomi, too. In fact, I bet that's why they did so much shopping. Bcz they really shopped! They had B'days to deal with.

gyllenspooner said...

Everybody knows when shopping for your mother you need your girlfriend.

Am I right girls?

get real said...

Okay we have another reported sighting from Daily News. Although this report would not have them anywhere near the theatre district for a Sunday matinee.

This is a few months old but I saw it doing a search in NY Magazine. Why they want Jake in NYC, lol.

Anonymous said...

Are we sure they attended the matinee? Isn't it possible that whoever said that was wrong?

FluorescentLamp said...

get real, I believe the other sightings of Jake and Reese at the theatre over that Daily News item, since we know she wasn't in town to promote Penelope. Was Christina Ricci even in the City at the same time?

get real said...

I agree FL. I don't believe the DN sighting but I just posted it in case anyone wanted to read it. I mean it makes no sense since it does not have them anywhere near the theatre and Reese was in town for the Avon event, not Penelope. It just shows that these sightings can be false.

lawgoddess said...

Did anyone else have trouble getting the video Monica posted? I got an error message.

Was it the same as the earlier video in the store, or a new one?

Thanks to anyone who can help. B.

Anonymous said...

B, I watched it ok, it was the same one as yesterday: R & J in the store, Reese putting on lipstick at the very beginning of the clip, Jake looking over his shoulder and spotting the pap through the window. They leave the store, Jake says "hi" back to the pap, Reese smiles and says a small "hi", and they both climb into the black behemoth without delay

Anonymous said...

Now a question for you B: is there any way you can collect the 2 clips of Heath on the Jon Stewart Daily Show, and put them up at Yousendit if you know how to do all of that? Please and thank you?

Unfortunately I guess the John Stewart archives can no longer be watched outside of the US. What a drag, :(

lawgoddess said...

Aaack, I am not a technical person, at all. I wish I could help, but I've never done anything remotely like that.

Maybe someone else knows how? B.

bobbyanna said...

I only know of one clip from when he went on to promote A Knight's Tale. It may have been his first time. He was 22, but he looked 17.
Audience was loved him. Beautiful.
Is there another? Bcz Kate Hudson went on to promote Four Feathers.

Anonymous said...

Hi bobbyanna, is that clip on Jon Stewart? If it is, then that's what I was hoping for. If you know how to and are willing to put the vid up at Yousendit, that would be great! I don't know why we can't watch the stuff, just bcz we're not in the US.... the same thing happens at other TV websites, sheesh!

Anonymous said...

Lawgoddess the video was longer than the other one, you see Jake talking to Reese and you here the paps saying something like "shes wearing black", don't know if you could on the other one.

This dropped into my mail box this morning, and really, really made me laugh

http://www.ecorazzi.com/2008/03/06/reese-witherspoon-and-jake-gyllenhaal-not-vegetarians-after-all/

Seriously, has anyone ever heard anything about Jake 'I liked watching my friends slaughter a pig last summer' Gyllenhaal being a veggie

FluorescentLamp said...

To the anon looking for Heath clips on Jon Stewart - would you like to come out and give yourself a name?

It's a little disconcerting that you're requesting people do things for you when you're merely an anonymous entry.

Thanks.

sass said...

Morning Babblers,
I can't stop laughing. I immediately thought about Jake's slaughter pigs interview.
How ever did that columnist, get the idea that either Jake or Reese were vegetarians.
Nice to know I'm not as off center as I feel. Insecurities reign here somedays.
All NYC stations are reporting attempts to find the Times Square bomber. Alas, I could do with a Jake/Reese sighting, bnt that is not to be.
I have both videos from Jon Stewart on my Live Journal. I have made the sites public and I will post the URLs here and hope you can see young Heath, who was so young beautiful and dare I say so much more vulnerable than brash comfortable silly Jake. Both so beautiful and similar on the inside and so different externally.

Jake on Jon Stewart

Heath on Jon Stewart
I hope babblers out of the country can view them. LJ is international and hopefully you can see them if not sign up for an account and enjoy.If all else fails I'll try to post them on Blogger with my other computer..please:)

I'm going to miss all the Jake/Reese pics in NY!!

I checked IMDB for the schedule for Four Christmases and they said that the had to use a doubles for both Reese and Vince because neither was on set! But they did say that they would be on set for the rest of the week for filming.

Me too, Chica, me too. :( I guess Reese will be back on the FC set but I wonder where Jake is? I miss him already. ;p

Thanks sass, could view the Jake clip just fine in sunny Blighty, which was lovely as I'd not seen that one before :D

I miss Jake too, although I just knew we'd get a drought after being spoiled during NYC week *she says moaning after only 24 hours without fresh pictures*

shondra said...

I have a question about SXSW.

I know that it's 10 days of film and music, but what is the name of the music festival that takes place in September in Austin?

It looks like Jake and Chris's friends documentary has 2 screenings, the 1st one is today.

If he does attend I would think that he would be there for the 1st screening.

FluorescentLamp said...

shondra, the music festival in September is called Austin City Limits Music Festival - or ACL Fest. And is held every year in Zilker Park in Austin, TX.

The Crawford docu gets its premiere Saturday afternoon with two more showings during the week:

Screening Times

4:00 PM, Saturday March 8th - Paramount

11:00 AM, Monday March 10th - Paramount

1:30 PM, Saturday March 15th - Paramount

shondra said...

Thanks for the info FL!!

Anonymous said...

A couple of thoughts. It seems that both Jake & Chris are supporting their friends and may be behind the project more than we know. We know why Jake & Chris were in Austin last time, we know Chris seems to be heading to LA with Jake, most likely for the festival in Austin. It's also possible that Jake flew to Austin with Chris and Reese went back to LA. Her ex was photographed at LAX getting on an international flight. So Reese is going to be working and hanging out with her kids this weekend. Jake will be in Austin, you might get photos of him at the festival, since it's work related. I'm thinking perhaps Chris went to Toronto and maybe the other friend to drum up interest for this project.

FluorescentLamp said...

I know this will bore the bejesus out of some folks, but David Modig's docu really is getting a lot of buzz prior to it's premiere.

It makes me happy for him and for the film's investors ;-)

gyllenspooner said...

I agree with anon.

This guy seems to be friends with Chris as well as Jake. Maybe Chris is an investor in the film. Does anyone know if Chris is independently wealthy?

Have there been any sightings of Jake or Chris in Austin?

agent_krycek said...

Thats all very, very plausable Anon 10:27

josie said...

Wow Anon, you seem to know a bit about Jake, Chris and their filmmaker friend!

How do you know about the Chris/Toronto connection? I thought that Chris was travelling with Reese and Jake based on the hotel pics and Reese was due on the set of her film on Thursday but how do you know about Chris??

I agree that Jake may be in Austin or will be and I do think he may have invested some $$$ into the film along with Chris.

He does have his own production Co, Nine Stories but I on't think he has produced anything.

get real said...

Thanks for the Crawford info, FL! Great to hear it is getting good buzz. I do think Jake and Chris would be in Austin already for the movie premiere. Seems they were traveling together. While Reese probably headed back to LA if she had to be back on the FC set. Anon did you mean Chris would be in Austin because it doesn't make sense for him to be in Toronto. We will find out if there are sightings or pap pics!

gyllenspooner said...

Chris was in Toronto as well. There were multiple sightings of him there at the premiere and he and Jake travelled to NYC together after the "Rendition" premiere. That was when they were photographed at the US Open together.

I read that on WDW.

He may have been there to line up support for "Crawford," as anon suggested, if he is an investor or producer. You'll find many film investors at TIFF. But that's just speculation.

gyllenspooner said...

[cont from above]

It could have been something Jake was doing as well at TIFF asides from promoting Rendition.

FluorescentLamp said...

Jake (and Reese) were in and out of TIFF faster than a blink of the eye. I know, I was there.

I really don't think Jake (and/or Chris) were there drumming up any interest for Crawford. There wasn't any time really.

The fact that Chris was there was just a testament to Jake's friendship with him and the perks that come along with having a film star as a best friend; i.e., he gets to bring his friends to film premieres, film festivals and awards shows.

Anonymous said...

Sometimes in Hollywood just being at the right party and talking to the right person helps. Put a face to a name or project. Jake took his friend the one wrote Crawford to the Bafta awards, I'm sure he did it so his friend go some exposure and the same may have happened in Toronto. Just by attending the Michael Clayton party a person would have the chance to meet industry types and talk the project up.

sheba baby said...

Yeah, I remember the pictures of Chris and Jake's parents at the '06Academy Awards and there is a video on IHJ and you can see Chris sitting in the same row as Jake.

Also He was at an Awards ceremony for Jake in Oct. of '06, I forgot the Award Jake was getting but Lance and RDJ was there an I saw pics of Chris in the background and then he was at TIFF.

So there is benefits for being the best friend of an actor but I do think in the case of their friend from MV, Chris may have a little invested in this documentary.

Why do you say British Airways? It looks like he's at the Virgin Atlantic counter? Are they the same in LAX?

I'm curious about where he is going. If he's flying Virgin from LAX the only place he could potentially be going is London. Why would he go to London now right before starting the Stop Loss press tour?

Anonymous said...

Your right it's virgin atlantic.
He was recently in Canada doing press for Stop-Loss, so maybe he is heading to London to do some press there, or maybe he is going back to London to do some re-shoots for his movie Franklin.

Anonymous said...

my 2 cents on Jake & Reese as a couple, I think they are serious, but I don't think they live together. It might seem that way because Jake is always hanging in Brentwood, but they both have been filming movies until recently.
Reese & her ex swap weekends, so when he has them she is free to travel out of state and he is free to stay over. But if Reese has the kids she is in the state of California doing things with them.
If you do sleepovers or live-in situations you have to be willing to accept the other doing the same.
Most custody agreements state that sleepovers are out of the question.

gyllenspooner said...

I agree with anon7:05 about Reese and Jake being serious but not living together.

I do think he has sleep-overs when the kids are there. Maybe not everyday, but they do happen. I think Ryan does the same with Abbie.

I don't think it's too big of a deal.

UltraViolet said...

I really don't think we need to discuss the custody arrangements. I'm fairly certain most divorced spouses in California have their new romantic partners sleep over eventually!

How about an unconfirmed J&R NYC sighting: At MoMA.

Appropriate, since I think Jake is an exquisite example of modern art :)

UltraViolet said...

On a sadder note, this is from an old Patrick Swayze interview:

Q: Some of the films you did after that period have become cult favourites, in particular Donnie Darko.

PS: It was the first movie in a long time that really seemed to me to speak to what it is like to be a kid that age trying to figure life out and how weird it can be. I would never say I knew it all the time - people who say that are usually sideline junkies, out there to take credit for something. But I did sense this could really talk to young people. I had no idea it would be as huge as it became. But you never do. I had no idea Dirty Dancing would become that huge.

Q: Have you seen your Donnie Darko co-star, Jake Gyllenhaal, in Brokeback Mountain?

PS: Ho ho. I think in redneck counties they're going to have riots. I think it's a wonderful film with fabulous performances and beautifully shot, and I'm going to be quite interested to see what the world public thinks. It's a really well-done movie and I love Jake Gyllenhaal. I'm not sure I could have done that role, or been willing to. Of course, after playing a drag queen and wearing pantyhose (in To Wong Foo) I think it's dangerous territory for me.

suvee said...

FL, thank you so much for the "Crawford" articles! Not boring at all, IMHO.

I so want to see this movie, and I would feel that way even without the Jake connection. Really hope to see this film in one of our art house theaters at some point.

Great timing, too.....2008 marks W's last year in office (hallelujah!).... hopefully that will increase interest in "Crawford". I think Jake invested very wisely.

suvee said...

sorry to jump back in again, but I need to thank extra for the link to the "filmstew" article on "Crawford". I enjoyed it a lot!

bobbyanna said...

Another Jake connection:

just learned that the musical duo, She & Him, who performed at the Sundance FF will also be performing at the SXSW Festival next week!
They have an album dropping around March 18th. "Him" is M. Ward, an
"indie folskster..." and "She" is Zooey Deschanel!!!! Zooey's debut album is mentioned in Rolling Stone and I hope this is the correct link to her website for more (accurate) info.

http://zooey-d.net/

I adored her in The Good Girl and I loved her in Elf and every other single thing I've seen her do. She is another one who seems to "disappear" into her film roles. I saw her most recently in the Brad Pitt Jesse James movie. I would love to see her work with Jake again!

Unbelievable isn't it. President Bush refuses to back down.
I don't endorse torture and neither should our country.
Yet, I read that even John McCain supports the Presidents Bush's veto, and he was tortured as a prisoner of war for 5 long years.

McCain supports Bush veto

What is it with the double talk. Sen. McCain doesn't support water-boarding but he supports other interrogation methods that may be labeled as torture. I guess the veto allows the CIA to have special torture privileges??
I'm very confused and I don't like being confused, no not at all.

I'm with you ONP re Obama or Hillary. We just need to get Bush out of there. Hearing that he vetoed the Waterboarding/torture bill is just one more heinous thing he has done. And if McCain agrees it's just wrong.

All quiet on the Jake front? We know Reese is back in LA but no word on Jake. I hope we hear something of him soon.

I could support either Obama or Clinton, but I really hope Hillary refrains from essentially endorsing McCain like she did last week when she said that both she and McCain had foreign policy experience (i'm not really sure what her FP experience actually is) and all Obama has is a speech.

It doesn't sound like much, but that was the first low blow of the campaign.

bobbyanna said...

IMHO, there have been a number of so-called low blows. Some less subtle then others. For example, Senator Obama, who currently leads with pledged delegates, is running for President, not Vice President.
If Sen. Clinton were in the position currently held by Sen. Obama, and someone suggested she'd make a terrific VP, there are people who might consider that a very sexist remark.

There seems to be a big discussion going on in the media about who John McCain is going to pick for his running mate. Personally, I think they might be taking a good hard look at Michael Steele who is the Lieutenant Governor of Maryland. He is an articulate, poised, African American with impeccable Conservative credentials. He also doesn't have the baggage Condi Rice would have. Who ever it is has to be someone who is both malleable to the real powers who run the show, and ready to take office if something happens to McCain.

It'a amazing how well Rendition is doing on DVD, and that makes me really happy. Thanks for the link Sass!!

curious said...

After checking Jake's IMDB page for nailed, i'm puzzled to see him listed as "rumored" but Jessica is confirmed, shooting starts in SC next month. Does anyone know why he is still listed as "rumored"?

bobbyanna said...

Probably bcz IMDB is notorious for not being up to date. They aren't as accurate as they used to be.

Narcissa said...

IMDB are often behind the curve, curious. Surprisingly often.

You know I don't think Jake is at SXSW. I really think we would have heard something about him being there either in the press for Crawford's premiere or on a blog from the fest. My feeling is that he and Chris went to Brooklyn. Maggie/Naomi/Romana could have been back in the city by the time the weekend was over and the paps don't usually go out there. Would be nice to think he has been visiting with his family and maybe Michelle and Matilda. I also think he had gone back to LA already we would have seen at least a pic or two of him. Just a thought..

josie said...

I agree that he may not be at SXSW, although it ends on Saturday zI think and Crawford has 2 more screenings this week.

Brooklyn is also a possibility, off the radar or even MV or maybe he is back in LA, keeping a low profile which he has done.

This is totally off-topic by the Gov. of NY Eliot Spitzer "is involved" in a prostitution ring according to the NY Times web page:

http://www.nytimes.com/

News conference this afternoon.

And yes I voted for him....

get real said...

Chica, I just heard about Spitzer and am watching his press conference now. I voted for him too. :/

sass said...

Please excuse us shell-shocked New Yorker's Sarah.

Chica,
I voted for him too. I can't believe this. I thought to post here with you and my friends to spare my son who has already asked me what's wrong, when he heard my howl of distress.
NY1 newscasters are as much in shock as we are. If this is true, our Governor, our fighter and prosecutor of prostitution is totally in hot water and may have to leave office.
I could just about die.
He's now apologizing on NY1.
He took no questions and says he is off to talk to his family?
He admitted no wrong and didn't mention what is in the NY Times.

Spitzer Is Linked to Prostitution Ring

OK Chica and all my NY peeps.
I can afford a lunch. I've offered and will do so now...I have almost no friends here since I moved back home, taking care of my mom, being a mom and being on disability hinders much of my social life; but pick a day to have lunch because I have to chat with a grownup...DAMN!:)
That poor family.

get real said...

I hear you Sass. I am in shock too. No way to see this coming...sigh.

chica said...

Hey Sass,
It wil have to be a payday which is this Friday, but we are taking a staff member to lunch so i could meet after work, anytime after 4:00

Just let me know when and where, it would be great to meet another poster even under these circumstances.

The latest chatter is that he resigned, i'm still in shock.

I'm getting ready to go home soon, i'll check back here when I get home.

Yes, I agree, that poor family.

Delegate Update... said...

For those of you interested.

Delegate allocations since the March 4th Primary are as such:

Obama 206
Clinton 195

This includes the actual primary on March 4th and yesterday's Wyoming caucus where the delegate tally were as such:

Clinton 193
Obama 189

Then there was the reapportionment of California's delegates (the final result has been tallied) and Obama gained three and Hillary lost one.

Obama +3
Hillary -1

Then there are the 18 super-delegates who have declared since March 4.

Obama 14
Hillary 4

Now, to add insult to injury, Hillary will lose another super-delegate over this whole Spitzer thing. Spitzer will lose his super-delegate status after he resigns. His Lt.-Governor is also a Hillary supporter, but he's already a super-delegate because he is a member of the DNC. He can't vote twice. Thus, Hillary loses one more.

Final tally:

Obama 206
Clinton 195

With bad weeks like this does Obama need anymore good ones?

bobbyanna said...

I've just had a catastrophe! Well, for me it is. My computer crashed! I just came back from Micro Center so they can back up my files for me...All my beautiful Jake pics and Heath pics...and my personal stuff, too. This is the second time it's happened in the past two years. Last time I spent so much money, I could have almost gotten a new PC. This time, I AM getting a new one. But I'm lost. Totally. Any advice is welcome. I am financially strapped right now, so I have to really get a good deal. And I want to be sure I get a big enough hard drive, and enough memory and capability for videos, etc. I know this isn't about Jake and Reese...per se...but it is...and I am having serious withdrawal symptoms. The idea of waking up tomorrow and NOT being able to log on is just ...ugh!

get real said...

Bobbyanna, so sorry to hear that. I have had similar things happen to my computer and it does suck. :( The only advice I have is you may find some good deals on a 'puter on the Dell website. I hope that can be of some help.

Sass and Chica, I may be able to get together with you all. Let me know what works for you both. Would be really nice to meet up.

UltraViolet said...

Oh, Bobbyanna, that's terrible. I'm a Mac girl so any suggestion I have wouldn't be cheap. But you can definitely get some great deals these days. Good luck!

I had a similar, but much less grave, issue. Somehow I deleted the file with almost all of my Jake videos and photos. Ack!

Happily, I still have my old Powerbook which has the file. I'll probably lose a few things, but it's not a complete disaster. And I suppose I should get around to buying one of those back up drive things.

Sorry I haven't been around - I have a serious deadline at work this week. Hope to have a new post up tomorrow. It would be nice if Jake emerged, since then we don't have to think of a topic!

verdeblusm said...

Dear Bobbyanna, I have had the same problems FOUR times with Micro.
I had thought to have lost all my files, but I discovered free recovery programs and I have reconstructed my documents(especially photos).
You can find it on internet. You had to go to an internet point and make a search on google or similar .
Words are: recovery program.
You will find many and many free programs. Download and save on CD/DVD, and open it on your PC.
You also find the same programs on specialised magasines(very cheap).
This is for my advice better choice because DVD/CD are virus free.

chica said...

Hey Get real/Sass,

The best day I can meet up is this Friday (Payday!) after work instead of lunch that day because we are taking a co worker to lunch that day plus I don't have to worry about rushing back to work!!

I get out @ 4 and work uptown in the 70's, but I can meet you guys anywhere (mid-town/downtown) or we can all meet uptown, whatever works, just let me know.

Still reeling from the Spitzer news, what a foolish thing to do. What the hell was he thinking?? Never mind he wasn't.

Looke like it's going to be Gov. Patterson now.

lawgoddess said...

UV, I noticed you were around less. Good luck with the deadline, I know you will knock 'em dead.

A Jake sighting would be terrific. :)

sass said...

Hi Chica and Get real,
NO doc appt. this morning. Yeah!
Can we get together the first or second Friday in April?
Please don't feel pressured; I was in shock yesterday and realized after I posted, how really crazy I was and how broke.:) So, if it's OK, I would love to chat y'all up next month, in April on a payday Friday, close to my disability pay time, which is the 3rd.:)

I believe Spitzer is going to have to resign, and if he does, my neighbor, David Patterson, our Lt. Governor, will become first AF/AM Governor. I've read that he is from an accomplished long time political family, is well like on both sides of the aisle--even by Joe Bruno;)--and is able to get along in Albany.
If he has skeletons, they will emerge but let's hope he doesn't have any.
xoxoxo

A Jake sighting would be terrific. :)

I knew we'd get a drought after being spoiled for the last week or so.

*sigh* never mind, it'll be worth it when he does emerge again.

chica said...

Hi Sass!
April would be fine with me, either Friday (1st Friday or 2nd).

I'll mark my calendar! We will of course keep in touch via this blog if anything changes, it would be great to meet up, I can't wait!

Spitzer has no choice to resign IMO and not only will Patterson be our 1st African-American Gov. but he is also legally blind as well.

I have heard nothing but good things about Patterson, so hopefully no skeletons will pop out in regards to him.

And yes Agent A, we have become spoiled although there have been droughts in between before.

sass said...

{{{{{{Bobbyanna}}}}}}
I experienced that last August. I had to replace many of my Jake pics...Thank goodness for Stephanie ands Photobucket, but I lost all my personal pics saved from Wireimage of Jake and Heath during the BBM days...and I can ill afford to pay loads of money to retrieve them again.*sob*
The meetup sounds good to me NYC peeps :)..looking forward to it.

I bought a budget Toshiba laptop <$500.00 last Sunday, but it gone up more than $150.00 since then. arrrrgh.
Anyway here's the link...

I like this laptop but hate Vista:(




More comments from The Sheriff of Wall Street on Grand theft auto...???

a game like Grand Theft Auto, which rewards a player for stealing cars and beating people up. Children can even simulate having sex with a prostitute

get real said...

Sass/UV, April (either the 1st or 2nd) would be totally fine with me too. Looking forward to it!

Yes, I think Spitzer should resign. Patterson sounds like a very interesting and intelligent man. Such an awful situation. Makes me so frustrated and I truly feel most for Spitzer's family. I could not imagine having to be his wife standing up there with him.

UV, I am now a Mac girl too. I was a PC girl but when I needed a new 'puter all I heard was great things about Macs. I got one and love it. Good luck with your deadline at work. :)

Yeah, sigh to the Jake drought. It was bound to happen. It does make it all the more sweet when we do see him.

chica said...

It's a date in April Sass and Get Real!!

Spitzer pissed his political future down the drain and I don't feel sorry for him at all.

I can't begin to imagine what his wife and family are going through right now.

Looking forward to your new post UV!!

There are some new/old pics of Jake on IHJ from last Tuesday in NY, 3/4:

http://iheartjake.suddenlaunch.com/index.cgi?action=display&board=Pictures&num=1204514920&start=60

They were taken during the day (morning) when Reese was doing the Today show and at the UN. The 1st set has him shopping and looking a bit uneasy IMO and the 2nd has him having breakfast with his bodyguard which I thought was odd.

I don't recall seeing his BG in the other pics of him and Reese, and why would he be travelling with his BG when I though he was in NY for a few days with Reese because she was going to be at the UN. I thought he only traveled with his BG during official business.

New pics, even from last week - new post!
