Don't judge the book

Is it just me or is there a resemblance between Timothy Geithner and that creepy guy Carl* from the awesome movie Ghost, you know, the one who is laundering money offshore for some Very Bad People? Even Mr. J sees it and he doesn't ever think anyone looks like anyone else.

*And yes, I know the guy has a name and dang it if I didn't just look it up on IMDB and everything and I've ALREADY forgotten what it is. He'll always be Creepy Carl to me. Probably one of my Top 10 ickiest film moments ever is when he tries to kiss poor grieving Demi. Right up there when that awful Sean Walsh (shudder) tries to put the moves on Bennie in Circle of Friends. Ugh. Anyway, it's a shame our Treasury Secretary doesn't resemble someone a little more fiscally upstanding, not that looks have anything to do with the job. Or DO they? Nah. Probably not at the Treasury.

That guy's name is Tony Goldwyn and he's the grandson of the guy from Metro Goldwyn Mayer (big Hollywood studio). Old Hollywood royalty!

But yes, creepy Carl works too :)

OK. Enough with Creepy Carl. I want to know where the salted caramels are?
