(Because there's happy news today, too!)
Once upon a time, Jake Gyllenhaal was in a movie called Prince of Persia. It was a magnificent movie, full of sand and ostriches and time travel.
To celebrate its impending release, Jake solicited questions from everyone in the world, but he only liked three of the submissions, and those were the ones he answered in this video:
Two of the questions we don't care about, but the third question (which is actually the second question) was so wonderful that Jake got flustered and accidentally called the questioner Ellen instead of Erin and then gave an overly sexualized answer.
And then we found out that the Ellen in question is really the Erin who is the Erin who is our dear friend Silver! And since Jake now knows Erin, it's kind of like he knows all of us! (Except not at all.)
But anyway, in addition to getting her question answered, Erin was also the recipient of this amazing gift set, full of wonderful things that lowly bloggers such as myself long for with ill-contained envy! She got a Prince of Persia-themed watch, a journal, 2 t-shirts, an arm-strap-thingy, and a poster with a personalized autograph:
One time when I was 14, I came in third in an American Online-sponsored "Lois and Clark" trivia game and won an unsigned 8x10 glossy photo of Dean Cain.
But this is better.
