PopSugar Begs Me For Forgiveness. Literally.

I just got an e-mail from PopSugar and they were all like, "We're really, really sorry that we had to ruin your life by not making you the winner of our awesome contest to meet Jake Gyllenhaal, but in consolation here is a video of the girl who won, which will make you feel even worse about losing."

And I was like, "DUDE, you mean you looked up Jake news for me?!"  Because, as we all know, there's a merit badge for that:

Well done, PopSugar!  So here is the video which...I'm not going to lie, did kill a small part of my soul.  But in a happy way!  Amanda, where are you?  Come visit and tell us your stories!

And there are more PopSugar installments to come this week, and more pictures from the event can be found HERE, like the one below of Jake giving Amanda a cake for her birthday.  And even though Jake's never given me a cake for my birthday, I'm totally okay with this!  Completely...and totally...okay... *sobs* 

Now, our second to last Daily Facebook question...which comes from Christopher "Amongst my interests is BBC News Magazine" Chiu-Tabet:

Why does Gemma Arterton's character refer to 'the gods' when pre-Islamic Persia was monotheistic (Zoroastrian)?

ANSWER:  Hey Chris, just a heads up, but Jake's not really Persian, either. Apparently this movie isn't completely "historically accurate." I know, right? Who knew?!

Thank you for your question, Christopher!  Just one more to go now... How time flies. Speaking of which, I just realized that ISJ is 2 weeks old today! So now I'm even more upset that Jake didn't get me a cake...

when i checked my email earlier and saw a note from popsugar bragging about some girl meeting GYLLS (oh yeah, i went there) i was simultaneously heartbroken and angry. why wasnt i alerted to this contest? why are you rubbing it in my face, popsugar? wheres my birthday cake? siiiiigh.

PG, im glad i am not alone.

ps-jakeypoo if you are reading this, my birthday is september 6th and i love german chocolate. tyvm.

sumi k, I share in your disappointment and also CAN'T BELIEVE I HAVEN'T CALLED JAKE "GYLLS" IN A POST YET. Another thing I have to cry over!

Anyway, I'm sorry you didn't know about the contest. :( I think that in order to make it up to us, Jake should present cakes to ALL of us on our birthdays, preferably home-baked, preferably hand-delivered.

I think there are two more segments to Amanda's saga...and I have a feeling our pain is only going to get worse...

If Jake is hand delivering home-baked cakes can he do it while wearing only a smile? That's my birthday wish

I don't know what to call this mofo anymore? Jake Gylls, Jake Yillenwholahey, or Jake Gooberballs. Personally, I've always favored the latter, but he has me all confused anymore. Pick a name, Jake. Pick a name.

September 14 here... i will be 25 this year too, does that mean i get to meet Jake?

My heart breaks a little more inside when i think of 2 more videos! ARGH!

Im going to miss facebook question of the day!

Sam May 27, 2010 at 7:43 AM  

Well shit, look what i just found..

Sam May 27, 2010 at 7:43 AM  

Damn try this obviously not broken tho!


Becky Heineke May 27, 2010 at 9:02 AM  

Oh my God, Sam, I am CRACKING UP! That is such a fantastic picture. The expression is perfect!! Did you make that??

And RH2006 and Leslie...perhaps we should start a list...both of names *and* of birthday requests. From the state of disarray I'm seeing right now, I think it's clear someone needs a little structure in his life...

I too have a September birthday. I will tell you it's on the 8th, but not my age. The idea of Jake delivering a cake (mocha please) to me in his birthday suit made me seize up & quit breathing for a few minutes.

... I'm OK now.

Leslie May 27, 2010 at 10:43 AM  

coffeecat: I'm also a September girl, the 7th.

I'm all for the request list. I think Jake is gonna have some down time between PoP promotions and Love and Other Drugs. The least he could do is personally wish all his fans happy birthday!

Sam May 27, 2010 at 5:53 PM  

Wow, is it like a pre-requisite to be born in september or something!!

And yes i did make that picture but only because Jake rang me after he read the blog and felt SO bad he forgot your 2nd week birthday.

Becky Heineke May 27, 2010 at 7:20 PM  

The representative from January feels left out. :(

Sam, that is AWESOME, both that you made that and that you made that at Jake's express wishes. He's always so concerned about my feelings!!

Call Me Mo May 28, 2010 at 11:12 AM  

Pssh I'm a December baby like Gylls, suckas! :D
