Saturday Night Social: Watch Burt Reynolds Rise 'Out Of The Ashes'

In 1992, Burt Reynolds, America's most important, influential, brilliant and perfect actor and human being ever walked on to the stage at the Golden Globes and delivered what all film and music and theater and television historians throughout space and time unanimously refer to as The Greatest Entertainment Award Speech of All Time.

"I used to sit in this section," he says, motioning to the seats the eras biggest stars up front. This was his own dig at his epic career down spiral in Hollywood. But with this award, for his new role in the hit show 'Evening Shade,' Burt was back on top. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes. A phoenix with a fantastic toupee.

And, lo, my first fully day has come full circle, because Neil Patrick Harris was also a nominee that evening for his role on Doogie Howser, MD. This is no accident! This is Burt's will, people. Burt, working through me as a conduit, as he often does, created this perfect, harmonious moment in the Universe for all of us here. Everyone, find your center, sit and become one with me, with Burt, with this epic speech that will obviously bring tears of joy to all of your eyes.

OH and Kerry Washington is on SNL tonight, you guise!

(2, 4, 5, and 6 months.)
Do any of you Jezzies have experience with giant dog breeds? The first and only dog I've had before my current one was a 12lb Pomeranian. I loved that dog like a baby, until my real baby came along and he HATED her, and my husband said the dog- not the baby- had to go. (he went to a friend's grandma who was recently widowed and now they're best friends so happy ending for him.)
Anyway, this past May we decided to get another dog and when I saw an ad for Bernese Mountain Dog puppies in the paper I knew I had to have one. I've seen Berners around and the ones I've seen were a touch bigger than a full grow lab. Fast forward to when I went to pick up my puppy- the breeder introduced me to the mom and she was just a little bit bigger than the Berners I had seen before (I had apparently only seen female ones before.) And then she brought in the dad... He was the size of a small horse and I almost had a heart attack! I had no idea the males were so much bigger. I mean, I knew because I read up quite extensively on the breed but I really had no idea what I was in for. Well I was so in love with my (male) puppy there was no way I was going to reconsider.
Now, about 7 months later, he is MASSIVE. Pushing 90lbs now. He's super mellow and sweet but it's really hard for me to walk him or take him to Petsmart because he's way stronger than me. We're also trying to train him to get into the trunk of my car himself because he's so heavy and he just refuses to do it. Basically I need some tips for training/ handling/ living with gigantic dogs! (Pics and stories also appreciated!)
