Sarah Haskins Blow Out

In case you’ve missed them, below are two new Target Women videos for your viewing pleasure.

First up, Lifetime!

(Click here if you can’t view the embedded video.)

You know, I’m sure that the dogs reenacting scenes from famous movies is actually supposed to be a joke on the part of Lifetime (Right? Someone please tell me they’re not serious), but I really do have to agree with Sarah that it ought to be illegal, nonetheless. Somewhere. Soft-core dog porn = so not cool.

And next, Snapped!

I’d so never heard of this show before, but I’m also so not surprised.

What’s going to cause you to snap? I think that for me, it’s quite obviously going to be my Beatles obsession. Though it could just be that boring old standby, feminism.

And now that you’ve had your laughs, have I yet found a way to casually mention that I met Sarah Haskins this weekend at WAM? That, in fact, when (my Feministe co-blogger) Jill and I met her, she was extraordinarily kind enough to buy us drinks? No, I haven’t yet found a way to casually mention that?

Well now seems like the perfect time for casual mentioning! Complete with pictures!

See, you can tell it’s me because I’m a dork who still has her name tag on!

Anyway, she was super nice and gracious despite the dozens of very excited feminists hounding her, even claiming that she knew what Feministe was. Jill and I agreed that she’s pretty much exactly the same in real life as she is in her videos.  Seriously, she’s just naturally funny.  Only got to spend a few minutes with her of course, but it was grand!

Oh, and her keynote on Saturday was also hilarious.  She taught us how to make our own Target Women videos.  If only it were that easy!

She just gets better and better.

That’s awesome!

I don’t think I have to worry about snapping because I am neither cute nor popular, so what would they say for the “her life seemed so perfect” part? “She was a geeky loner who watched a lot of Star Trek. Her life seemed perfect, by the standards of people who measure life by amount of Star Trek watched.” Also, don’t you need a husband or maybe boyfriend to be your murder victim?

Oh, my goodness–apparently I have snapping to look forward to! Did you notice the #1 thing those women had in common? Yeah, cute & petite. I may not have mentioned this before, but frickin’ adorable and petite (& Blonde!). Jesus, Mary & Joseph, save me from myself.

For realszz, Sarah Haskins nerd crush, right here :)
