Lindsay Lohan was on “The Today Show” this morning, and you guys, I really think she’s back in the game. During the interview, she talked to Matt Lauer in a coherent, thoughtful manner about her stint at the L.A. morgue, her upcoming SNL hosting gig, and her new role in a movie about Elizabeth Taylor.

I guess I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that I think she’s had some injectables in her face, and I’m hoping those wear off soon, and also personally would prefer to see her with a more natural-looking hair color, BUT — overall she was lovely to listen to, and she seemed normal, and like she has some clarity, and also, frankly, like she’s a smart person. And even if some of this “I’m back on track” thing is a performance, it still means that Lindsay Lohan the really good actress has replaced Lindsay Lohan the hot mess.

Call me a dreamer, but I’m behind LiLo this time around.
