Saturday night
slavezombie
(click for illustration)
I was so bored, I felt like a movie or dinner with somebody. But I think I was more restless than in a partying mood. I stayed home Saturday and worked on editing stuff. I only quit to watch SNL because I've been curious to see who will be filling in the spots that Tina Fey left behind, and I also enjoy watching the skits with Rachel Dratch.
    The new SNL line-up doesn't include Rachel Dratch. I don't think there's any other reason to be tuning in to SNL on my lonely, restless Saturday nights anymore. Now I'll be watching 30 Rock. I'm not a fan of sitcoms anymore. The last sitcoms that I was really commited to was Cheers and Frasier. When Friends came on the air, I gradually stopped channel surfing for new sitcoms altogether. Anyway, my plan is to record all the episodes Rachel Dratch is in, and tune in to watch them on Saturdays when I would normally stay up until 12:30 waiting for the live perfomance on SNL.
    Oh, I also heard that Degeneris will be hosting the Academies next year. She is not my favorite comedienne. I don't have anything against her, she just reminds me of a blond stranger that I had tried to make small talk with on the bus one day on my way to work. I also dislike Malcom Jamar Warner because he resembles somebody who was in charge of supervision for a group of temp workers assigned to a place called Iron Mountain. Prince resembles another employee of that company. I don't like him either.
Rachel Dratch.
    I'm tired. I did a lot today, and I didn't even get a chance to mop my floor or clean my bathroom, or vacuum the rug in the bedroom, or clear off the dresser counter, or dust off my computer table. I don't want to work tomorrow, but I'll go because it's such a cushy job. I am going to remove a cardboard from underneith the fish tank. I don't really want to bring the fish tank back home with me again. I like having my fishy friends at work where I can sit and stare at them endlessly.

What was up with Rachel's brother?

I think you and I have "talked" before, because your name looks very familiar. I see you're in the Los Angeles community and are friends with "pinkrose" (a long time LJ friend of mine too), so that may be why you seem familiar.

DESPITE your aversion to Rachel Dratch (ha!), I added you as a friend. ;) You seem interesting and we have alot in common! :) Well except for the whole Rachel thing. I run her website. Well, what used to be her website but now is a fansite because I guess she's not interested anymore. :( (long story).

Ya we talked in Los Angeles... had a whole debate about unemployment one time.

As to Daniel Dratch... he was a client where I worked and I thought he was a retard, nothing more, nothing less. And I used to like Rachel D. but over time she began to grate on me and it was Molly Shannon syndrome, the longer she stayed on the show, the less I could stand her. But such is the fate of being a TV star, not everyone will love you, even if one's name is Raymond.

    OK, I know the SNL skits that Rachel was in were pretty lame. I have a thing about celebrities that resemble my high school sweetheart, and the cheerleader skit that Rachel probably gained her fame with Will Ferrell was the lamest of them all because my ex-gf was in the drill team squad too. It was really a toss up between Rachel and Maya Rudolph, but the determining factor was that cheer-leading skit, IMO. Another fav celeb is the channel 4 six o-clock news anchor. I love her. I still can't find a DOB for her and it's times like these I could hack into the St. Johns University data bank for that info; or perhaps somebody here has an imdbpro.com account and wouldn't mind going to the trouble.

Yeh, and my ex was in drill team. That's way different from being in front of spectators. Perferming cheers during the game and sitting in the stands getting stoned until something positive happens for "the team" are two totally different things.

OK I accept that as a challenge... I am really good at advanced internet research, if her birthday's on the web I can find it... tell me her name again?

About RD.. it's a taste thing, I'm not judging by her skits, she's just acting in those. Me not liking her is nothing other than one of life's arbitrary 'i like this person/don't like this person' choices.

Ana Garcia
Here is one of my weekly sketches of her with Chuck Henry. I luv the way my tivo freezes the screen so clearly. I only wish the 6:00 news was in hi-def. not that it would make a difference in my illustration ability.

Wow she's a tough google. From her KNBC profile you can assess that she's got a 22-25 year career after college... so add 22-23 +22-25 and you get an age range of 44-50... and her face agrees with that.

The most detailed info is on Zoom... zoom is always the best resource... but it doesn't list the all-important date of her college graduation:

http://www.zoominfo.com/Search/PersonDetail.aspx?PersonID=68981288#ref988838929

still.. it's a lot more detailed than her KNBC bio. I also found a profile which would give you better results but they want $10 for the privilege:

http://www.leadershipprofiles.com/preview.asp?docid=296897&t=0

I can't vouch for the veracity of that service. Zoom is pretty good for free by comparison. I always use them.

I went through her university site and she's not an important enough grad for them to list... they only cite the former governors etc who are alums.

As I said, she's a tough google. No date for her graduation, but interesting that she was born in Spain! And your sketches are awesome. You should send them one!

:)

    My word, thanks for that insightful portrait. I thought I was good at math, but I still don't know how you derived at the conclusion of her age. Yeah, that's about the age my ex would be too. The irony. Isn't it strange that her bio/profile on nbc4 should read like a resumé and not include a graduation year? I'm a little reticent that New Yorkers might hear of her success to emphasize the accomplishment. But all paranoia aside, there was a time when all my gf's names were Ana. Ana this, Ana that, the Ana, Ana, Ana, Ana…
    It was like I was a caveman and all woman was Ana. ug.

My theory is it's been artfully omitted in deference to that all-important female prerogative of needing to disguise one's age.

In California for instance, it's illegal to require a prospective employee to provide their age, and an employment application question such as 'What year did you graduate from high school' is an illegal question, because it is a veiled attempt to ask the applicant's age. Did you know that?

I walked out on an interview last year when I saw that question on the application. I was also annoyed at being asked to fill out a four page application, since I'd already submitted a resumé and done an hour long telephone interview with one of the company's C-levels. It was strange to walk in after that -- only to have someone hand me a clipboard and say "Here, fill this out..."

I feel for you! She is really missed! The show was barely watchable for me. :-/ ps: I stumbled here from "blogger search". I research the web periodically for stuff for the site I have on Rachel. (rachel-dratch.com, if you are interested.).
