One of the aspects of moving to New York that I was looking forward to the most as the opportunity to get to try Popcorn, Indiana’s Wasabi Popcorn.I’ve grown to appreciate wasabi over the years and I’ve always been a fan of popcorn. It seemed like a match made in heaven.
I could never find it in Charm City, so imagine my disappointment when I couldn’t find it in the Big Apple either. Seriously, I’ve been here for almost four months and strike out at every corner.
But I did stumble across Popcorn, Indiana’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Kettlecorn, so I figured I’d give it a shot.
When this show was announced everyone joked about how the show as skewing old. And it’s a valid observation; McCartney is a musical icon who’s been a superstar for nearly five decades and Short is as a point in his career where he’s doing voiceover work for Old Navy.
But they’re both also Saturday Night Live vets.Short was a castmember when SNL toyed with the “big name” format and Sir Paul feels like a mainstay.Plus with it being a holiday show, guest stars galore are expected.
Basically, I was expecting big things from the episode.
One of my all time favorite ice cream flavors was one that I stumbled across last year; Häagen-Dazs' Cranberry Pumpkin Spice.It was a wonderful flavor that fully represented the holidays.
Sadly it’s all gone now. But when I saw Ben & Jerry’s Pumpkin Cheesecake I actually allowed myself to get a tad optimistic about the prospect of getting pumpkin back in my ice cream and that ice cream back in my mouth.
Confession time; I’m not a Jamie Foxx fan.I’ve never found the guy funny.I’ve never seen any of his comedies.I haven’t seen a single episode of his television show.He was my least favorite cast-member on In Living Color, and that’s including SW-1.He does nothing for me.
It just always seems like he’s trying to be funny as opposed to just being funny.It annoys me.And that’s why I was sort of dreading Saturday Night Live’s return from it’s brief hiatus.
