FIRST OFFICIAL JAKE WATCH STALKING MISSION: FAILED

We need to give a shout out to our homegirl Prophecy er, Girl for taking stalking to brilliant new heights. I am truly humbled. You can read about her mission HERE (Part I) and then HERE (Part II). Unfortunately she didn't actually see Jake because he was in New York/The Hamptons/FBI Protection Program but we should all salute the effort and craziness and cupcake consumption. And Ryan Seacrest has his own star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame - what's the world coming to?

$3.25 for a cupcake?!?!?!?! What's that, about £2? And a cupcake is not even as big as a muffin, right? Are they coated in some sort of Class A dust or summat?

winterbird said...

I salute you! I just finished reading Prophecygirl's failed stalking report - brilliantly done! Although I would have brided those under-16 staff in Sprinkles Cupcakes to give me some info/gossips about Jake. Are those cupcakes for himself? or Atticus? Austin? Maggie? Kirsten?

wtbgirl said...

LMFAO! Oh man, I think sneaking onto the high school grounds eating cupcakes was my favorite part.

In re cupckes, yep, pricey cupcake joints are hip here in the states right now.

I believe this trend started a few years back with Magnolia Bakery, right here in NYC's West Village (where else? -lol). There is a crazy line around the corner on weekends, and the cupcakes are around $3 a pop. They ARE amazing, though, and I am not usually a fan of sweets.

Prophecy Girl said...

It's true, winterbird, I would have liked to quiz the staff more, but the growing line behind me made it difficult. Damn all those hungry people! Either Jake gets special treatment or Sprinkles wasn't that popular a couple weeks ago. I can't imagine a place that ONLY sells overpriced (but delicious) cupcakes being a success, but I guess I'm behind the times. Wtbgirl, there are other places like this?! It just seems so random...

zoo said...

I am trying to leave a message on PG's blog but it's taking too long.

Sweetheart, this is genius. The Harvard Westlake bit is beyond words. Thank you for going to all that trouble!

cina said...

LOLOL! That was so much fun to read!
And here I was thinking only classy and respectable celebrities had stars on The Walk of Fame. How wrong was I....
And Harvard Westlake....! You've been on holy Jake-ground, girl!

wtbgirl said...

Prophecy Girl: Yep, like I said, this trend has been around for a few years, started here with the Magnolia Bakery here in NYC - and it was an overnight success. The chicks that started it made a FORTUNE - so I guess that is why the concept is being copied, elsewhere in NYC and now in L.A.

since when does rayn seawhatever even merit any attention whatso ever?

gin said...

That was awesome...I wish I woulda been there. I don't think VA is a prime location for Jake stalking. He never seems to be here. I might have to move back to NY. :)

Living in the American Debacle said...

"To merit attention"...lol The only thing I can figure is he has a new hairstyle every 30 days!

thesweetestone said...

who is ryan seacrest?????

wtbgirl said...

"who is ryan seacrest?????"

If you don't know, count yourself lucky - LOL!

He is the fake-tanned co-host of American Idol. He also is a host on the "E" Channel, and took over New Year's Eve hosting duties from Dick Clark. You can see a photo of him in all of his cheesy glory over on imdb. RUN AWAY!!!!!!

OMG, i finally understand that saying "curiosity killed the cat". Why, oh WHY did i ever feel the need to know who ryan seacrost is? Im gonna have nightmares now- guy looks like Ken doll would look after spending few hours in the owen. Creepy....

Why does he have a star??? You can actually buy a star for yourself or what. I just don't understand that.....

Katie of Sweden said...

This is sooooo cool! I can just imagine how you felt being at his school... I myself wouldn't stop laughing for like 2 days after been doing a thing like that :D

Anneka said...

As everyone says above, totally ingenious. Here's your diploma from the School of Scary (if Unsuccessful) Stalkers. Throw your trilby and beige trenchcoat in the air with pride.

Seacrest Out.
(Sorry, couldn't resist!)

Nothing Really Matters said...

Prophey girl how you have lots more trips planned!

Living in the American Debacle said...

Why does he have a Star? This is the biggest mystery of all. We'll solve fusion power , end world hunger , breath life into the dead , Before we'll know the answer to that one.

Katie of Sweden said...

This is like too much... I mean I have had seriuos withdraw symtoms the last week because of the lack of pap pics and averughting..and then..today we get lika 67 new paps pics.. and this blatant stalking story... I am SO back into my addiction... I mean look at them!!!!

Ha! I accept this honor with great pride. It was a long, hard haul, but what a sense of accomplishment. I just hope no restraining orders come out of this. :)

Even if I didn't see Jake, I do feel that I have done the world a favor by pointing out the injustice of Seacrest being honored alongside Hollywood heavyweights (although it's totally an honor you can buy, so it's not even a real honor). The real question is who would shell out the bucks for his star?! Come on!!

Katie of Sweden said...

OT but about J.. I understand that the MTV m.a. is recorded on 3d june and will be on TV 8th.

cina said...

I'm actually still puzzled by Seacrest's star. Did I get this right - you can actually BUY yourself a star? How embarrassing is that?? And above all - who would ever DO that??
Ryan Seacrest...?

I always thought a star on Hollywood Walk of Fame was something you were GIVEN as an honor for being a respectable celebrity, a top notch actor etc.

I'm stunned.

rei said...

Oh, and olsen twins? Does...I duno... Hillary Duff have her star? Its hillarious...

Simon Cowell said...

Well rumor has it that it's not actually a "Star" But really a manhole cover for a sewer with a yellow star painted on .

cina said...

Oh, and olsen twins? Does...I duno... Hillary Duff have her star? Its hillarious...

Uhm, yeah. The Olsen Twins are also a huge question mark, I agree.

~DKBB~ said...

What a hoot!!! I could so see myself doing such silliness 'twas I but a young 'un again. Prophecygirl, you totally rock! I bow to your stalkerness! ;)

britpopbaby said...

Omifuckinggod, Simon Cowell reads my blog!

SImon said...

Yeah I'm a bigger fan of Jake than you might think! PS Nice legs!

britpopbaby said...

I bet you are. And thanks, but they're not my own legs.

Simon said...

I work with that little upstaging twat , on American Idol. All I can say is I hope a truck comes by awhile he is standing over his "Star" and runs him down!....insufferable he is!

simon said...

Well that's okay because these are not my actual words.

britpopbaby said...

Hee, I like you, simon. Stick around.

Simon said...

Yes I unloved in some circles. I think I might be moving back to Britian. Hollywood has lost it's last shred of reality over here.

Prophecy Girl said...

Hey Simon, I didn't see your star anywhere. Did I miss it or has Seacrest shown you up? 'Cause if so, I'd be bitter if I were you.

Simon said...

I find it in total poor taste, to be fosting your own star apon any public walkway. One thing I can't abide is a large ego. I now know where I intend to walk my dog in the future.

Prophecy Girl said...

Spoken like the humble man that you are. But dude, you were totally at Ryan's unveiling...

Simon said...

Oh dear , I've completely blotted it out from my mind. I must have taken some mind altering pills that Paula left around! Really? is that me?...it all a very bad dream. I feel all dirty now.

Nothing Really Matters said...

OMG you are such a lair! That so is you! Go look in the mirror!

Prophecy Girl said...

Simon, you're awesome. ;)

Simon said...

I feel all cheesy inside...like a cheese ball rolled in butter crumbs....I'll never be able to hold my head up in public again...the shame...I'm through now....tell me these are some sort of Photo Shop creations...

Simon said...

Is there any possible hope of redemption? I've made such a sorted mess of my life....The Simon I once knew has died to me. In it's place a large happy bright plastic clown like bobble head, stares back, as I gaze into the mirror. I'll be right back I think I'm going to be sick.....

Nothing Really Matters said...

Yes if I saw your face everyone morning when I looked in the mirror I would be sick too. Maybe you should just get rid of all mirrors?

Redemption, redemption, redemption, maybe if you share your millions we can all go to LA.

Concerned Simon said...

I may have to leave all of you. For two reasons: 1) I feel so ill 2) A large thunderstorm is moving in quickly with lightning. And I believe in my current status I may well be struck by a bolt! I try to return if the danger passes.

Prophecy Girl said...

Yes if I saw your face everyone morning when I looked in the mirror I would be sick too.

Oh, man, nrm, I love you! HA!! Yeah, Simon, try not to die in a freak electrical fire or anything. Don't worry, we're very short-attention-spanned on this blog. I think everyone's moved on to Stephen's open invitation into the family. :)

Im afraid of lightning Simon Cowell said...

He's a charmer uh? We could all learn from him I bet. Thanks for your kind words. But all joking aside there is a real storm comming in so .....it's safety first! take care .

Nothing Really Matters said...

Thunder and lightning very, very exciting, I love a good old storm we had a cracker hear yesterday!

Linna said...

Prophecy Girl, your stalker mission story was hilarious!

Admittedly, the news of Poppa G's view of our familybonds are huge, but you still deserve praise for stalker attempt and good spirit!!

jla said...

Gold star for prophecy girl!! I was completely riveted by your stalking account! I laughed, I cried, I belched (totally unrelated I have been a bit gassy) I commend you on your impressive efforts in pursuit of "The Sex"! Eating the cupcakes at his high school was a stroke of pure fucking genius!! Brava....Brava!!

tankergirl said...

This is the kind of friend I need! You know how to have my kind of fun. Well done!

That was a fantastic Prophecygirl.
Thankyou so much.Lovely piccies.What a queue for a cup cake.Blimey.what are they, diamond encrusted or what?Is it always like that or have the folks around that way heard that Jake frequents the place?Whatever the answer.I'm sticking with greens cup cake mix.85p in ASDA.

Anonymous said...

I just discovered this site about a week ago. You girls - and guys - are hilarious! I've been enjoying everything so much. All of the comments are not just funny, but right on the money with what any true Jake addicted person feels. I am one of the over 40 year olds who have found Jake's charms, talent and absolute beauty irresistable.

jla said...

Welcome anon 9:55! We are just one big happy cult...I mean family around here! You should really register a name...come on we don't bite...unless you are Jake or someone who looks even remotely like him!!

And why'd do scare of simon? I was going to put an 'endorsed by simon cowell' badge on here!

gummybug said...

And now I want to make cheese balls rolled in crumbs. But it is too early for such endeavors.

Anonymous said...

Prophecygirl, you would fit in well with my LA-based friends at apeculture.com, who are very into ironic celebrity worship.

only1annabel said...

Prophecy girl you've made my day! I want to eat overpriced cupcakes, trespass at a private school and have my photo taken on steps the lovely Jakey G may have once walked on!! Oh how I envy you!! Wicked story tho very entertaining!
As for the line outside Sprinkles, does that mean young Jake joins that que like us mere mortals?? Intriguing! I hope he's not all showbizzy and jumps que or goes in a back way! mmm one to ponder!!

Simon said...

Hello everyone, there seems to have been a bit of a computer tie up. This prevented me from opening the blogger box. But it's working now ...so I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Simon said...

Dear Prophecy Girl, As you are perhaps the closest I will ever come to the world of Jacob Gyllenhall . I must live vicariously through you. Is it possible to expand on the experience of eating a Sprinkles cupcake? the texture...sweetness...etc. I would buy my own understand you but those lines are terribly long...and when I mention I'm Simon Cowell the service ends. Thanks :)

Prophecy Girl said...

Ah, yes, let's see if I can adequately describe the sensation of having a Sprinkles cupcake melt in one's mouth...

There were several flavors to choose from, but I went the dark chocolate route (a personal favorite). There was a deep layer of frosting, enough to flavor every delicious bite but not so much that the cake part was overwhelmed. The frosting was adorned with darling little dark chocolate sprinkles, again not too many, just enough to covered most of the frosting surface. The cupcake itself was moist, of a perfect texture, and chocolate in taste. It was light and fluffy, yet oddly fully. I would estimate it to be the size of roughly two regular-sized cupcakes and, in essence, perfect in every way imaginable. Confectionary bliss!

Prophecy Girl said...

I meant "oddly filling" not "oddly fully." Otherwise that doesn't really make sense.

Simon Cowell said...

Thank you for that. I felt as if I was actually eating one in person. I would have gone for the chocolate myself! Perhaps I can get Ryan to pick me up a few?. He loves lines and the attention. I'll remind him to bring a pen and some 8x10's Thanks

Simon said...

I've been inspired to go the kitchen and grab the boxed cake mix....and make some! Now I understand that these homemade cupcakes couldn't possibly approach a "Sprinkles" . I will close my eyes and pretend I'm sharing one with Jake none the less.....*sigh*

Prophecy Girl said...

I will close my eyes and pretend I'm sharing one with Jake none the less.....*sigh*

Dude, I had no idea Simon Cowell was so...gay. Hey, let me know how the baking goes. You're clearly more ambitious than I in the kitchen...

Simon Cowell said...

My dear, how cheeky of you! Can not a man appreciate a cupcake? To linger over it's silken softness , savor it deep cocoa notes , to peel it's tender paper wrapping...leaving fresh exposed softness to the waiting tongue. Really to imply that's somehow sexual ....Well it's beyond me! P.S. My parents all way taught me to share.

Simon said...

always...i was upset.

britpopbaby said...

Dude, can I make an 'Approved by Simon Cowell' badge or not?

Simon C. said...

Oh, Hello Britpopbaby! What exactly did you have in mind? Is it not enough to have my presence on occasion? I'm not expert in this blogging business, as you may have noticed. Do you perhaps intend this "Badge" to be along the lines of a avatar like your relining pose? I fear that my legs are not quite as appealing.

britpopbaby said...

Just a button like the 'Q&A with Stephen Gyllenhal' post it. That's all and maybe your picture. Your naked picture.

Simon said...

I have a naked picture? Oh dear! I sure hope you put a black box over the naughty bits!

britpopbaby said...

There wasn't a black box big enough, baby!

Simon said...

Yes the lower anatomy is far above average! But I was think more along the lines of covering the man boobs. I trust your judgement to excerise good taste.

simon said...

thinking :( sorry!

I truly believe that we have reached the point where technology has become one with our world, and I am fairly certain that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as the price of memory falls, the possibility of downloading our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I daydream about every once in a while.
