One and a half Men adds Ashton Kutcher

Ever since CBS execs said that they would go ahead with production on Two and a half Men without Charlie Sheen, speculation began as to how they would make that happen. Now that Ashton Kutcher has stepped in as his replacement, details are being leaked as to just how the show’s runners are plotting to lay things out.

The show is said to begin with the funeral of Charlie’s character where all of his girlfriends will attend the service, and his house will then be put on the market. It is rumored that several celebrities will make cameos as potential home buyers, but that Ashton’s character, Walden Schmidt, an “Internet billionaire with a broken heart”, will eventually take ownership of the house.

We can all assume that creator Chuck Lorre will make certain that jokes at Sheen’s expense will be included in the show. The season premiere will be a two-parter that will air over the first two weeks. You can catch Two and a half Men on CBS when it returns on September 19th.

Adios, phone numbers!

Apparently we’re having yet another new telephone area code in the San Francisco bay area. Go figure, all of the new cell phone plans outweigh the downward trend of home phone lines and complete lack of pager numbers. Represent the 669…! I can only see numerous sexual innuendos coming out of this.

The past four nights have combined a stunning total of around 14 hours of sleep, and my saving grace is this warm cup of cocoaespressocoffee that I make with our nifty machine upstairs. I’d blame Ron and the brunch that I went up to the city for on Saturday, which then led to breakfast on Sunday morning, but that’s honestly only a small section of the story at this part. On the flip-side, tonight is (tentatively) the first night I’ll be in my own bed since Thursday! You have no idea how I am looking forward to that.

Let’s see.. a couple weeks ago, when I had more free time (ahem), I passed through 10,000 gamer points on Xbox Live. It’s only fitting that the 80 point achievement for being crowned ruler of Albion in Fable III would be the achievement to push me past that milestone. I don’t think I’ve turned on my Xbox 360 since. I was going to purchase a Kinect, too.. but not if I don’t have time to play!

School’s going well. Stats is still a joke, and I have large projects in both my business and microeconomic theory classes, so that should be entertaining to compile together last-minute. Go me!

Lastly, are we tired of hearing about Charlie Sheen yet? Just when we get out and away from Lindsay Lohan, the media becomes fascinated with another drug/alcohol abused victim. I can’t wait to see who our new celebrity target will be once Charlie is completely washed up.
