Hatchet Face

I think that Pamela Anderson has officially morphed into Hatchet face- I mean the resemblance is uncanny...I doubt even their mothers could tell them apart!

Book Review- Remember Me

I just finished the new Sophie Kinsella book Remember Me and I have to say I really enjoyed it. Other than her Shopaholic series- which as you all know I love- I've never been a big fan of her books. I mean they are cute and all but nothing really special. Even as Madeleine Wickham her books were just ok. But I liked this one. The concept was interesting and I liked how it played out- it had me intrigued.

Yes, I am aware this is a chick lit book and not high quality literature but it is a fun cute read for the holidays. If you want a light read go for this- don't waste your time with the Twilight crap.

Daily Rant

Toronto is having a major snowstorm today which made my normal 30 minute Go bus ride almost 2 hours...lovely!! And I was sitting beside a SMACKER!! A SMACKER!! As soon as the bus pulled out she started eating very smelly food. It's also important to note I got VERY bad motion sickness/ residual shingle nastiness on this ride and already felt very ill. So the smell of her food was just making me ill. Then she had to smack- loudly- the entire time. I swear I almost murdered her. I tried to go out of my way to sigh loudly and squirm to let her know she was pissing me off but it wouldn't stop!! I don't care about different cultures- shut your mouth if you are eating. No one wants to hear/smell it. It was so disgusting.

I really have to do this more often- it feels very nice to release all this pent rage!!

Yet Another Duggar Enters the World

If you know anything about me you know I am obsessed with all things TLC. And I cannot get enough of the Duggars- I am so strangely fascinated by them. I mean teaching creationism and going to a museum about it- it's like they are circus folk to me!!

Anyways, today Jim-Bob and Michelle had their 18th child- Jordyn-Grace. All of their children have J names so it's not shocking. Except I can't believe they gave a sexually ambiguous name to a girl- they are very much into gender roles.

Well good luck to them- I think they are nuts but god knows I love them!

So Sad.

This is just the saddest news I've heard in a long time. There was a fire at a Humane Society in Durham and 160 cats were killed as well as other animals. It is just so heartbreaking- officials tried to get to them but the building was engulfed with flames and the animals died of smoke inhalation. What makes it worse is so many of these poor animals had probably been abused and already suffered. It's so awful- it makes me so upset. They are not sure how it was caused but they have had break-ins in the past and it may have been arson. Who the hell breaks in to a humane society? What is wrong with people?!!?

Anyways, Baxter and I are making a donation in honour of all the poor cats that died. I encourage all of you to do the same- we all have $10 at least to help these poor animals. And those that need a place to go when no one else will help them.

I can't bear to post a pic of the fire or the surviving animals- it's too sad. Instead here is Baxter curling up on my new duvet. This is what animals should have- a comfy place to sleep

Oscar Host

It has just been confirmed that Hugh Jackman will be hosting the Oscars. I'm not sure if this is the greatest idea- I'm scared they will try to turn him into Billy Crystal. And in contrast to popular belief I never liked Billy Crystal- too pc. I LOVED Steve Martin- he is witty, dry and intelligent- all my favorite characteristics!

Hugh is charming and dashing and he can sing. I appreciate a song and dance man- but he is not a comedian. He obviously will not be writing his own material- I guess as long as he has good writers it will be ok. But he is a member of the Hollywood community- he will not want to offend. He won't be making fun of anyone- which is the part I like the most.

It should have been Steve Martin or Jon Stewart

BTW The picture is for my mom- she loves the beefcake

GQ or Playboy?

So these are pictures that Jennifer Aniston took for the new GQ. I just don't get why she didn't just do playboy because let's be honest- she might as well have. I'm sure she'll claim she won't stoop to playboy as she is an "artist" but is there really that big of a difference?

Golden Globe Nominations

I completely forgot that the nominations were coming out today- I really have to catch up on my movie watching because I haven't seen most of them. I did see Mamma Mia and it was good campy fun

WHERE THE HELL IS PUSHING DAISIES?!?!?! Where has good taste gone!??


The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
The Reader
Revolutionary Road
Slumdog Millionaire

I think that Benjamin Button probably has this in the bag but I'm intrigued by slumdog millionaire- it is getting a lot of buzz

Leonardo DiCaprio, Revolutionary Road
Frank Langella, Frost/Nixon
Sean Penn, Milk
Brad Pitt, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Mickey Rourke, The Wrestler

I think that Sean Penn has this in the bag

Anne Hathaway, Rachel Getting Married
Angelina Jolie, Changeling
Meryl Streep, Doubt
Kristin Scott-Thomas, I've Loved You So Long
Kate Winslet, Revolutionary Road

This one is tough- they are all really great but I think Anne Hathaway may steal it but obviously you can't discount Meryl Streep

Burn After Reading
In Bruges
Mamma Mia!
Vicky Cristina Barcelona

Based on buzz I think it could go to Happy-Go-Lucky but I adored Mamma Mia

Javier Bardem, Vicky Cristina Barcelona
Colin Farrell, In Bruges
James Franco, Pineapple Express
Brendan Gleeson, In Bruges
Dustin Hoffman, Last Chance Harvey

Javier Bardem or Dustin Hoffman probably although I haven't seen any of these

Rebecca Hall, Vicky Cristina Barcelona
Sally Hawkins, Happy-Go-Lucky
Frances McDormand, Burn After Reading
Meryl Streep, Mamma Mia!
Emma Thompson, Last Chance Harvey

Sally Hawkins is the one who has been winning awards but I loved Meryl Streep

Tom Cruise, Tropic Thunder
Robert Downey Jr., Tropic Thunder
Ralph Fiennes, The Duchess
Philip Seymour Hoffman, Doubt
Heath Ledger, The Dark Knight

Tom Cruise?! Yuck!! It will go to Heath Ledger probably

Amy Adams, Doubt
Penelope Cruz, Vicky Cristina Barcelona
Viola Davis, Doubt
Marisa Tomei, The Wrestler
Kate Winslet, The Reader

I haven't seen any of these but I adore both Kate Winslet and Amy Adams

Danny Boyle, Slumdog Millionaire
Stephen Daldry, The Reader
David Fincher, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Ron Howard, Frost/Nixon
Sam Mendes, Revolutionary Road

Probably Danny Boyle or David Fincher

Kung Fu Panda

Hands down it will be Wall-E- it is winning everything

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
The Reader
Slumdog Millionaire

Probably BB- it has a lot of hype and is an intriguing concept

The Baader-Meinhof Complex (Germany)
Everlasting Moments (Sweden/Denmark)
Gomorrah (Italy)
I've Loved You So Long (France)
Waltz With Bashir (Israel)

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Slumdog Millionaire

''Down to Earth,'' WALL-E
''Gran Torino,'' Gran Torino

''Once In a Lifetime,'' Cadillac Records
''The Wrestler,'' The Wrestler

For the love of god let it be anything except the Bolt one- I can't handle Miley Cyrus!!


In Treatment
Mad Men
True Blood

Go Dexter!!! God I love you! I do think that The Tudors should be here since it is fantastic but I will accept Dexter. I also haven't seen the vampire porn True Blood yet- I'm sure when I do I will give it my vote. I do love vampire porn- see Buffy season 6.

30 Rock
The Office

Well it has to be 30 Rock bt the Office makes me laugh too

Gabriel Byrne, In Treatment
Michael C. Hall, Dexter
Jon Hamm, Mad Men
Hugh Laurie, House
Jonathan Rhys Meyers, The Tudors

Oh this is tough since it has two of my ultimate sexy beasts Dexter and JRM. I will have to go with Dexter though

Sally Field, Brothers and Sisters
Mariska Hargitay, Law & Order: SVU
January Jones, Mad Men
Anna Paquin, True Blood
Kyra Sedgwick, The Closer

I don't watch any of these but I'm guessing Anna Paquin- the Hollywood Foreign Press loves young girls in new shows in this category

Alec Baldwin, 30 Rock
Steve Carell, The Office
Kevin Connolly, Entourage
David Duchovny, Californication
Tony Shalhoub, Monk

While I do like Alec Baldwin I think Steve Carell is brilliant on the Office

Christina Applegate, Samantha Who?
America Ferrera, Ugly Betty
Tina Fey, 30 Rock
Debra Messing, The Starter Wife
Mary Louise-Parker, Weeds

Urg Debra Messing. Yuck. I hae to go with Tina Fey here for sure. America Ferrara is overrated- that show is made by the supporting actors.

A Raisin In the Sun
Bernard and Doris
John Adams

Ralph Fiennes, Bernard and Doris
Paul Giamatti, John Adams
Kevin Spacey, Recount
Kiefer Sutherland, 24: Redemption
Tom Wilkinson, Recount

Shirley MacLaine, Coco Chanel
Susan Sarandon, Bernard and Doris

Neil Patrick Harris, How I Met Your Mother
Denis Leary, Recount
Jeremy Piven, Entourage
Blair Underwood, In Treatment
Tom Wilkinson, John Adams

It will be Jeremy Piven- it's always him. Although again I think he's overrated. I would go with my Doogie on this one.

Eileen Atkins, Cranford
Laura Dern, Recount
Melissa George, In Treatment
Rachel Griffiths, Brothers and Sisters
Dianne Wiest, In Treatment


There is a Flavor of Love III that is now coming out. OMG my television viewing is going to become even worse- so embarassing. Because I will watch. Even though he is absolutely disgusting and makes me feel like such a loser for watching I still will. I am so addicted to these shows- help!!

Amazing Race

I think that Nick and Starr have this in the bag. Ken and Tina are always a long shot and have been known to do well so could steal it- but Dan and Andrew are out. They are complete idiots. If they win it will make a mockery of this whole race

Man Nick climbed that tree like a monkey- he did really well. I would suck walking across that log- my balance sucks

Tina is officially losing them 1 million dollars- I hope she realizes that as she watches this back.

Well at least they got to the bridge first i guess...that looks terrifying- i would not want to upside down!!

My god this challenge is intense!! This is hugely challenging!! This challenge is crazy- i would totally pass out!! Andrew and Dan will completely suck at this!

Tina needs to pick up the pace- when she sees that Nick and Starr are done she needs to get in gear and hurry up!

It's weird that they are taking cabs to the pitstop- usually they have to run from the last challenge.

Oh one of the cabs took them to the wrong place- Ken and Tina have lost I think

God why is Tina being so difficult- she is losing it for them

How can you not know a country's flag when you were there the day before?!!? As soon as you get to another airport there are flags everywhere!!

Oh it looks like Nick and Starr listened to the wrong guy- they seem to be lost. Nope they found it

BTW I think Dan and Andrew are out of this- obviously

I think that Nick and Starr are probably in the lead- it's always tough to tell with the editing

Yup it's Nick and Starr- that's what I thought

I wish I knew how far apart they actually were from Ken and Tina...I'd love to know times

Well it's nice that Ken and Tina reconnected

How on earth do these two buffoons think they are typical frat guys?!!? They are fat and ugly and dumb!! I dated a frat guy and let me tell you- hot! Not so bright- but hot!

New Celeb Baby Name

Jonny Lee Miller has just had a baby and named it Buster Timothy Miller! BUSTER!! That isn't a name!! What the hell is wrong with these people! I love the Bluths too but Buster was a nickname there too. Why couldn't they just call the kid Timothy and give him Buster as a nickname. God I hate people

It also disappoints me because I find him so damn attractive. I know he is probably super weird since he married Angelina while she was covered in blood but still...I watched this godawful movie called Mindhunter once and really enjoyed him. How disappointing...

Daily Rant

My god this woman is just trying to piss me off now! First massacring her face and now this- not putting her child in a bloody carseat!! She who is so obviously "camera shy" had to make sure that everyone could see her as the doting mother holding her child....against all laws and commone sense!! This woman is officially retarded and should be held accountable for being a retard.

Please No Coalition!

God I hate the idea of this coalition- it is such a backhanded way of taking control. It's awful. I despise no confidence votes and despise political takeovers in the name of political stability. I mean I am by no means a fan of Harper's but he was who the public voted for. They did not vote for these three amigos. I mean a few weeks ago the entire liberal party was rejoicing that Dion was stepping down and talking about how useless he is- and now he's going to be our leader?!?! This is totally ridiculous. I smell Jack Layton and his dirty used car salesman moustache for this. I mean the economy was going down the tubes- you cannot solely blame Harper- especially since he only has a minority government. Hopefully the Governor General steps up and doesn't let this happen. If they can't respect last month's election than there is just no hope. And letting the socialist NDP in a position of power will NOT help the economy- hello Rae days.

Daily Rant

So I'm home sick this week with zero energy feeling like ass. I have no idea how people sit at home all day- I'm already bored off my tree. My rant is about daytime television- what the hell happened to it?!? When did it become so awful!?!? For the first time in my life I turned on Days of our Lives and didn't know who anyone was...all I knew was they all looked like ferrets. There are no Degrassi rerus, nothing. Boring boring boring.

Video of the Day

See more Jack Black videos at Funny or Die

I love love love any musical number and this amused me. When did Doogie become such a sexy beast?!

Daily Rant

Well now that I am stuck at home with the shingles and am whiny and bitchy I've decided to do a daily rant on here- who knows how long it will stick but it seems like a good idea right now.

So tonight's rant- I cannot handle Taylor Momsen. I just watched last night's gossip girl and while there is so much to to say about her- the excessive black eye make up, the anorexia, the alleged heroin habit- I chose to focus on the worst part. The hair. I cannot emotionally handle her hair. What the hell is up with that?!? It's like a weird mullet that offends me. Put a bag over that shit.

I can't find a pic of the family but just looking at her infuriates me. Oh- and when I was googling looking for a pic of her I found out something that explains my underlying hatred of this girl. She was Cindy Lou Who in the god awful How the Grinch Stole Christmas movie- I HATED CINDY LOU WHO!! Ach I hate her!!

Again- the shingles have isolated me and made me very cranky. I'm expecting many more rants to fly out of me...

Pushing Daisies

For the love of god ABC do not cancel this show!!! You air the crap that is Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice bt you cancel this amazing show. It is by far the best show on tv! I mean they deep friend a man to death tonight and it was all done in a comedic fantastic way- genius!! Just disregard the annoyance that is Chuck- I swear everyone else is amazing. I mean Olive sang Eternal Flame tonight- ETERNAL FLAME!! One of my most favorite songs of all time!! If anyone wants to help out a girl with shingles who is incredibly whiny right now please watch Pushing Daisies tomorrow night and give it some ratings!!

Monday, December 1, 2008

Yay Hillary!!

I am feeling more confident in Barack Obama and his administration- today he confirmed that Hillary Clinton will be his secretary of state. Go Hillary!!! Love you!!! Thank god someone is trying to act like a president- I don't think that George W has worked in months!!

Britney Spears- For the Record

Oh god I am so excited about this- my BritBrit is back! Go Britney!!

The poor girl looks so zoned- obviously the meds. Obviously she needs them but she has dead eyes

It is nice to see her dad taking care of her and controlling everything but he should have done this years ago. She needed parenting when she was a child to try to avoid all the future craziness!

Her accent seems to have gotten super strong- I don't remember it being that thick when I used to watch Britney and Kevin Chaotic

I do take offense to the whole not being able to be free- there are a LOT of really big celebrities that move around and lead normal lives without the paps. If she really hated the attention she could leave LA- Demi went to Idaho and Julia went to New Mexico. She's just not smart enough unfortunately. And she lives off the attention

HAHA!!! I love that they say a shirt is very mommy and very ugly then very Katie Holmes- HAHA!! She does dress awfully. Oh god Britney has the worst taste in can take the girl out of Kentwood...

Is it just me or is there not a lot of content with this documentary- I want more interviews not all the crowd shots and scenes set to music

Oh I love that she is in LA because her babies daddy is there- it would have been better if she had seen baby daddy but it was still good.

Again- she is saying that the paps ruin her life yet she has been known to call them.

My god this girl is just so sad- she seems like a trapped bird. She needs to grow up a bit and get a huge amont of councilling- she has no idea who she is.

Oh I didn't realize that we were going to see Madonna in this. Man Madonna's face is just making me sad- she has just had SOOOOO much work. I mean it all looks smooth but she doesn't really look like herself. It's the cheeks that freak me out the most.

Oh and here comes the Kabbalah- no wonder she agreed to do this. Her face does look healthier than it has in years. As long as she keeps the scary man arms covered it's not that bad I guess

OMG that is the scariest clown I've ever seen in my whole life!! Why the hell did her dad wear that mask in front of the kids?!!?

At least she is now exhibiting motherly instincts- that is a marked improvement

Amazing Race

So I'm blogging during this- lately I have been stamping but I feel like ass. God I am still hoping this isn't shingles but the nausea, pain and fever isn't helping the cause.

I really want Toni and Dallas to win- I'd just like to see an older person win for once and Toni hasn't really pissed me off- other than naming her son Dallas of course.

Yes Dan you and Andrew do need all the help that you can get since you are such a HORRIBLE team. That marching last week was so incredibly atrocious

I really would love to go to Russia. And going on a submarine wold be pretty cool.

Ok I do feel bad for the bobo twins getting splashed with water like that- that is so uncomfortable

I can't handle Starr- too annoying for me.

Ok the park with the monuments is actually pretty cool. This is actually a pretty cool task- god I would kill to be on this show. Katrina and I would kick ass- look how well we did on city chase!

Oh no is it Toni and Dallas that lose their passport and money? Why else would they feature that?

If Dallas doesn't know who Lenin and Stalin are then he's a tool- more so than I thought. The hair doesn't help my overall impression of him

My god does Dan do anything?!?! I swear Andrew does all of the roadblocks

Oh it is Toni and Dallas who lost their passport and money. Dude you are in a foreign country without a passport- the clue doesn't matter at this point! I'm sure the cameraman chased down the cab to get it but still- let's show some concern

Oh my god Dan will be horrible at this- we all saw him march last week. He reminds me of this complete loser that I know- everytime I look at him I"m reminded of him and I cringe. Ok I still don't think they did well but I guess that is as good as they'll get

I love that Tina is yelling at Ken that he will get her killed as she is running ahead of him into traffic

Oh my god I can't believe that Andrew and Dan are second and are making it to the end- if they win I will pass out. They are so inept. And Ken and Tima are ridiculous. Why aren't they going towards the picture?

Ok never mind my pick- Toni and Dallas are out. And I'm noticing that she really likes to kiss people.

Ok I think that Nick and Starr have this in the bag. Side note- Nick looks so much like Will from Nightmare on Elm Street to me- it's distracting

Twilight- the movie

It is no secret that I hated the books. I read them with the hope that they would get better- I kept reading hoping that it would give me some satisfaction in the end. It didn't. The concept of the books is great- that's what lured me in. Love me the teen vampire love. But the execution was piss piss poor!!

Well I have now received the satisfaction I was waiting for- Twilight the Movie!! I give it two BIG thumbs up!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. By far the laugh out loud comedy of the year! Seriously- I laughed, I cried. It was so bloody funny- and it was never ever supposed to be funny which made it better. Yes I'm lucky to have made it out of the theater alive since there were some Twilight lunatics who were probably offended I was laughing so hard and couldn't keep quiet- it was inate!! It's not my fault that people can't see that it is complete useless drivel.

The movie actually followed the books pretty much to a t- unlike my shopaholic which has been BUTCHERED! Tangent- I saw the preview tonight and they have Gia from Veronica Mars playing Suze. Suze- the blonde upper crust british roommate has been replaced by a skinny black haired American. Urg

Ok back to Twilight. Robert Pattinson was a sexy beast as Cedric Diggory. And yes there are moments when he looks normal and relaxed and incredibly hot. But for the most part he looks awkward and stiff and uncomfortable. It is truly painful to watch. He reminds me of the big guy from Legally blond who won't make eye contact and is awkward all the time. That is what he looks like. And the hair- they hair truly offends me. There were 2 scenes in the whole movie where it was down and looked normal. The rest it was teased and sprayed within an inch of its' life into a god awful pompadour. SOOO BAD. And the makeup- the amount of foundation on this guy is atrocious. But when he's just natural and rocking a suit or a grey t shirt it rocks- the guys body is amazing. But in his defense there really isn't much to do with this part- it's written poorly.

Bella is how I pictured her- boring and surly and short. I don't understand how she has relationships with others- she says nothing yet they all love her.

That is the biggest problem with the movie- if you haven't read the book you will just not get what all the hype is. Obviously you will be able to follow it since a spider monkey could but you won't get the hype. Nothing is explained or followed through on and it makes no sense that these two people fall in love so quickly. There is no interaction- the communication is atrocious. And painful to watch- which makes it so goddamn funny!

And the acting...oh the acting! It's like they spent all their money on the two leads so the rest of the cast was hired from the local strip mall. The parents were sooooo bad- hopefully they go and chillax and take some acting lessons before the next installment.

I don't want to give a lot away but I tell you it's ridiculously funny- we were all hysterically laughing. So if you are looking for a funny movie to see with your friends I do recommend this. Trust me- you'll enjoy yourself

It's Officially Time for an Intervention

I have developed an insanely disturbing habit...I am watching all of the "I Love" tv shows constantly!! This is just the worst programming on television. I mean Rock of Love, I love New York, I love Money, Charm School and now Real Chance of Love with those two repulsive brothers from I love New York. I HAVE TO STOP!!! These are the most disgusting humans and I can't stop watching.

I mean first the brothers- they claim to be musicians...sure. And the long flat ironed hair with the goatee- it makes me puke a bit in my mouth. And the grammar...THE GRAMMAR!!! What the hell is wrong with these girls that they are fighting over these two retards?!?!?

Then I love money. I swear these people actually have some learning disabilities. The one guy has a post it on his bedroom door that says "ladies" and underneath he taped up the results of his last STD test. SEXY!! I couldn't breathe I was laughing so hard. The rest of them have such very illustrious careers like pizza delivery men

Then there's charm school- good lord. Make it stop. Someone come over and make me turn these off!!

I mean they are actually really funny shows but I'm just laughing at them all. Actually it can make me feel better about my own life since these people have serious issues...

New Celeb Baby Name

Urg. I already hated Ashley Simpson but I hate her even more after this baby name. Bronx Mowgli!!! BRONX MOWGLI!!! What the hell kind of name is that?!?! First off Bronx- this kid will NOT be tough with two big douches like that for parents. Second- MOWGLI!! I always hated the Jungle Book and it is a retarded name. Idiots.

ABC is Retarded!!

I just learned that they have not ordered any more episodes of Pushing Daisies and essentially have cancelled the show. These people are retarded. They air complete drivel like Private Practice and crap like Grey's but pass on a charming critically acclaimed show like Pushing Daisies!??! Which could have gathered them awards?!!? Idiots.

The also cancelled Dirty Sexy Money which I enjoyed.

I hate them.

America's Next Top Model

I think Analeigh has this in the bag. I just don't like Mckey- I hate that she's called McKey and her weird side mouth. Plus the hair really really bothers me. I like Sam's personality but she is a bit too butch to be a top model

I think Samantha does look really forced when she smiles- compared to the other two it is not natural.

Oh god Analeigh the talking is awful- but let's remember that for the most part models don't talk.

Yuck I hate McKey's hair slicked back too. I am just not a fan. Tali said she would win and she probably will- yuck. I prefer Analeigh!

Ok McKey has this in the bag- there is no way that Samantha can win this. Once again I was horrible at picking the winner- I never would have picked those two to be in the final two.

I adore the coat that McKey is wearing but I don't think she's a good walker. Oh god them walking in these dresses they look like clodhoppers! There is no grace here. McKey put your arms down- you look awful.

Yup it's McKey- urg

Confessions of a Shopaholic Trailer

What the hell?!??! Why do people keep taking books that I love and making them into crappy crappy movies?!?! First The Other Boleyn Girl and now this?!?! WHAT THE HELL!?!? Why take a book that is fantastic and fun and well written for the genre and change it?! She's AMERICAN?!!? WHAT?!?! I'm telling you they are trying to ruin my life. The entire charm of these books to me are single gals living fabulously in London- that is the appeal! Sophie Kinsella, Marian Keyes, Madeleine Wickham (aka Sophie Kinsella)- that is what I like!!! And Isla Fisher is Australian- she could have done a damn accent!! So disappointing...

Monday, November 10, 2008


I'm in the middle of watching Nicole Kidman on Oprah and it is just making me sad. Why oh why did she do this to her face?!! The lips look deformed and she can't even really fully smile since her cheeks have been so pumped full of crap. I mean she hasn't gained any weight elsewhere but the face has new weird bulges....Everyone goes on and on about her forehead being scary but it's the bottom of her face that's so sad. So so very very sad. I also don't understand why she is leaving all the white roots around her face.

Oh even more sadness- her trying to pretend that she is still involved with her other 2 children. This woman just makes me feel so very very sad....I miss my Moulin Rouge Nicole!

Amazing Race

Chantale I don't know how you did it- I don't think I would be successful by myself in India!! Group tour all the way!!

I would not do well with that paint challenge- I would just get irritated.

It seems like they are chasing Kelly more than they did Star- they seemed quite aggressive with her. For sure they are going after her more than the others- but she is incredibly whinny

These girls are tools- have they not learned that they should keep their taxi??!

I don't think I could handle the chilis- it would probably be too much for me!!

My god Terrence is completely nasty!! Oh my god they are going into the cages?!?! These people are retarded!!

OMG this holy water challenge looks crazy- all the people have to be satiated?!!? That could take forever

Wow congrats Ken and Tina- they went into it more calmly then everyone else and they got it on the first try. Good for them.

America's Next Top Model

Oh god Marjorie is going to do horribly on the go sees. She is so awkward. I predict that Analeigh will do the best on the go sees.

Interesting that the guy said she is playing a model but isn't a model.

Oh god Marjorie you are such a tool.

I agree with the woman that you can't have a bathing suit model that is covered in tattoos- they are distracting and ugly.

Oh maybe it will be McKey that wins- they seem to like her. I just don't get it- i don't think she's that pretty- she is odd looking to me

I love Analeigh's black and white dress- that was super cute.

My god these girls are horrid- they are so excited that McKey was late

Oh there you go Analeigh did win- well by default since McKey was late

I think this is for sure Marjorie's week to go home

I don't hink that Elina has a lot of emotions- they are trying to get something out of her that she doesn't have. I watch Dexter- some people have no emotions!

I think Marjorie and Elina will be the last bottom two and Marjorie will go home. Oh I'm wrong it was Marjorie staying- she will be gone next week

My god the Americans finally got it right!! While I do feel bad for McCain I'm still ecstatic the democrats are finally back in power!!

I am just watching McCain's concession speech and it is very well done. He is a very good public speaker. He is a likeable man- I don't agree with many of his policies or his running mate but he is a good man.

Ok here comes Obama- thank god. I'm exhausted and sick and want to go to bed but I feel I need to see this. Love that he brought out his family and they were all introduced as the first family

He is such an eloquent speaker- I really like his voice. It is so important to have a leader that is a good speaker. The US has not had this since my Bill Clinton. Unfortunately Canada hasn't been led by a good speaker since Mulroney!!

I have to say I love how diverse the audience is there.

Ok the earned the new puppy line- that was super cute.

I really like this speech- he does have to try to cross party lines.

Video of the Day

On the one hand I do feel bad for her a bit- I mean she's incredibly stupid and trusting. But when you are running for Vice-President of the United States you have to expect people to come at you. And while quite a bit of this made me laugh it is never funny to speak in another language to someone and make fun of them. That's just rude.

Another One Bites the Dust

Deanna and Jesse from the last Bachelorette have officially broken up. I mean they were never a good match anyway- as Patti put it today she was too hoity for him. I have to say this story actually made for a pretty funny afternoon- I sent this link to Patti, Lisa and Chantale and right away the emails started flying. General consensus- Deanna just needs to go away now. Although the majority seems to love Jason and wants him to stay clear of her I could care less- he was incredibly boring and whinny to me.

Speaking of whinny is it wrong that I found Jesse's depressing video actually quite funny?

Three Cups of Tea

I just read this book for my book club and while the meeting is not for another 2 weeks I still had to write about it. This is by far one of the best books I've read in ages!! It is soooo inspiring!! It is about a climber who goes to the Karakorum in Pakistan to climb K2 but ends up sick in a small village. He befriends the villagers and vows to come back to repay them for their kindness by building them a school. This turns into his life work and he ends up building schools all over Pakistan and Afghanistan. It truly shows what one person can do- and one not rich person at that.

I mean Oprah did go to South Africa and spend millions and millions on one school for girls. Of course it's great she did that for them. But this guy can go to Pakistan and build a school for $12000 and change a community. Just think what all that money of hers could have done!! And he's not trying to westernize or influence them- he simply wants them to have an education to better their lives.

Amazing. Definitely definitely definitely go read this!!

US Election

Just a quick little blurb about my feelings about the American election. Going into it I'm pretty sure that Obama has this in the bag. I still would have preferred Hillary but she just didn't have the star power and awe. While I obviously would like a Democrat to be in power I truly don't believe he has the experience needed. There is a lot of hype about him- first black president blah blah blah- but really is he qualified?!!? There was the selection of Joe Biden which I support- at least he picked someone who is experienced and may be able to advise him. But if you look at the two presidential candidates on their own McCain is by far the better choice. I really like McCain- he has proven himself in office and he seems like a good guy. Unfortunately he is trying to pick up the pieces of a shattered reputation for the Republicans after the Bush years. But he made a FATAL mistake in his candidacy- and that was choosing a retard as a running mate. I think he could have one this easily if he had not chosen her. She just ruined all of his chances- nobody wants to elect that retard. Actually I have spoken to people who like how she "speaks to the people". But they also obviously have issues.

Anyways- it will be interesting to see what Barack actually does with all the pressure and if he can live up to the hype

Pushing Daisies

This is by far my favorite show on tv. As soon as I see that it is on tv I just get so excited!

God this show is so clever- love the soybean betting!! Poker with food- amazing!

Oh go Emerson! I love that he is getting some lovin!!

America's Next Top Model

Wow Sheena is yet again proving that Americans are completely uneducated about other countries- she though it was seedy!? Yay for stereotypes!

A lesbian bath scene- HAHA!! The va-jay-jay shaving party!? HAHA!!

For the love of god someone work on Sheena's speech and vocabulary- I can't handle it!!

Oh Elina you are totally going to be in the bottom two because of your attitude and ignoring Mr. Jay.

I don't mind what Samantha is wearing- it looks fine to me

I think that Sheena and Elina will be in the bottom 2 and Elina will go home

Ok it was Sheena- not shocking since this girl is not a model in any way.

Dancing with the Stars

Maurice- you can still tell the Cheryl hates this guy- she is horrible to him. I'm glad he shaved off his nasty moustache- but I'm still not a fan. That dance did nothing to him.

Lance- I don't think this girl is the best choreographer. I mean yes they did say highlight Lance's dancing but he din't need a big long solo at the beginning. Although the dance itself is pretty good- I didn't love the weird somersault in the middle but the rest is good.

Susan- time for her to go home. Bruno is right- her timing is off. She's not a good dancer

Brooke- I still think she is going to win this- as long as she can get the fans. Well it's good this is a slower dance she doesn't have to jump on the foot.

Cloris- as much as I liked her at first I am finding that her stick is starting to get a bit old. But it still impressive to see her dancing- look at her out there in those heels- I mean her legs look better than mine! She is trying and if the public keeps her then she'll keep going. There are obviously better dancers than her but this is not a true dance competition- it was designed as a popularity contest and that is how it will stay. Carrie Ann that was uncalled for- I mean Toni was boring. And you will have to redesign your entire program.

Cody- this kid still bothers me. Now it's the slicked back hair- yuck!! I mean he's not a horrible dancer but not for me

Warren- I do like him- he's fun. I mean the serious dance doesn't do much for me but I still like him.

What the Hell Happened to Her Face?!?

I didn't even know who this was!! Lara Flynn Boyle was a very beautiful woman- what the hell did she do this for?!!? She is totally suffering from Hunter Tylo syndrome. I had to add a before picture because it just shocks me

New Celeb Baby Name

Amy Poehler has finally popped and had a baby boy with my Gob Will Arnett. I mean while I am impressed that she was able to move around and rap just a week before giving birth on SNL it just can't justify the horrible baby name that gave her son. Archie Arnett! Archie??!? I truly didn't know that people still used that name

Lainey Blind Item

Besties in Bed
A bonus blind riddle for this week. Short and smutty.

They’re best friends and they say best friends only…

But they sleep in the same bed when they’re on holiday.

Duana and I have been sharing a king bed during our European travels but that’s because we’re poor. If we could afford it?


We’d both be in junior suites yelling at each other from across our balconies.

These two however don’t have to rough it. And when they do rough it, it’s because the cameras are rolling.

A junior suite for them is like a homeless shelter. So when they can book out an entire floor, why would they choose instead to share one bed?

ANSWER: Right now I am thinking Chase Crawford and Ed Westwick

Wednesday, October 22, 2008

America's Next Top Model

Oh god stop with the European thing-I know a lot of Europeans...and you guys have been here since you were children!

My god Elina is completly retarded- how is what she said hurtful? These girls are retards

I actually agree with Samantha for once- the two are drama queens

Oh James St James! I love the movie Party Monster!

They are definitely focusing on Elina being a drama queen- I like she will go home

Elina has a horrible walk

Mckey is way too awkward and choppy

Analeigh's weird arms out is odd

Samantha is doing too much

Why do they all keep sticking out their arms?!

Oh good Josclyn looked like a stipper- don't change the outfit on the designer

Oh god Sheena stop moving- just stand still

Oh god Marjorie is way too hunched and awkward- she needs to stand up tall!

I don't think that Samantha looks like a model at all- she will go soon

Elina is one of those people who just can't express any emotions- I don't think it's control. I just think she's vapid. I mean I grew up with girls like that- girls that just drew flowers instead of anything else. There is nothing there

Oh god I can't handle McKey- I find her horribly awkward

I think Analeigh is by far the best at this- she is one of the most natural people I've seen on this show

Oh god Marjorie is just horrible- there is no connection. Oh god here comes the crying- let me guess she's European so she won't be able to do this. They don't know how to act after all. Luckily for her she is a pretty girl who could probably model and no one will ask her to eat

Sheena was actually quite good at this

I don't know why they aren't harassing Joslyn about her horrible accent- she sounds like Danielle did and all they did were harass her about her accent. I guess they don't think this girl has the potential to win so they aren't concerned

I think Sheena is safe this week- she really worked the clogs. Samantha just looks like a tool who isn't trying- she will be in the bottom two

Amsterdam!?!? How on earth is Amsterdam a fashion capital?!?! I only know of Victor and Rolf from Holland- I don't know any other dutch designers.

I think Samantha and Elina will be in the bottom two and Elina will go home- she hasn't improved

Ok I was wrong it was Joslyn- she could go- she won't last very much longer

Dancing with the Stars

Lance- well he is definitely playing up the sympathy vote by saying he had no confidence and was the worst dancer in NSYNC. Ok now I do have a lot of expectations if she is the world champion in this. I think this dance needs to move around a bit more. And I don't find that he is really doing much dancing in this- she is doing most of it. Oh and he went and slipped and fell- at least he didn't take her out. I agree with the judges- he really didn't do anything

Toni- while I am really enjoying Alec ad his chest it is a bit much. I'm also not a big fan of the white socks with black shoes. Him lifting her in the air and and swinging her around- is that not considered a lift? As was the lift at the end. I don't really get this west coast swing dance

Susan- of course she fractured her foot- yet another thing for the sympathy vote. I love that she gets an MRI- I didn't get anything like that when I hurt my foot! I had to push it around to get it xrayed! I still don't believe that she has any rhythm and she doesn't really remember routines- she has to look at him for prompts. So are they allowed lifts with the new dances?

Warren- there is something about him that I just enjoy- he is just having fun and trying hard. He isn't arrogant or obnoxious- I like him. Oh I totally think they have a chance to win- I mean he by no means has the technique but he has the charm.

Cloris- I think now that Cloris was revealed to be in the bottom two more people will vote for her. I don't think that she is going anywhere. I mean the lady is spunky. She is 10 years older than my grandmother and I can never picture my grandmother doing any of this! And to her credit she is moving quicker that she used to- and the lady can spin! Man her and her partner are constantly attached at the pelvis- I think they are probably quite familiar with each others nether regions...

Cheryl- see I could tell that she didn't like him. She has never looked thrilled with him- and she is not being terribly nice right now. I wonder why they are doing all these dances on here if it is not ballroom and the professionals aren't comfortable with them- that is weird. I'm not really a big fan of his weird orange satin outfit but I don't mind his dancing. And then Carrie-Ann had to molest him...

Brooke- she really is far superior to the other dancers. Her technique is superb. And for a non-athlete or performer she is doing great. I mean everything was good about that except for his hair- that was horrible

Cody- Alright I might be biased because the combination of his god awful name, the eyebrows and the Miley Cyrus association just make me dislike him. However that wasn't a bad dance- he definitely tried

Pushing Daisies

Oh Digby how I love you! I mean it may be because you look like my Lola but also because you are just so damn smart!!

Ok now I love Pigby too- I understand the desperate desire to get to your favourite food

Line of the night- she was busy having an affair with Chef Boyardee- haha!

Lainey Blind Item

Body or Baby?
A couple of years ago, I was the first to write about the celebrity IV diet – many of them would admit themselves to hospital under the care of a proper physician for 10 days, 2 weeks or so, eliminating food in favour of an IV drip chock full of essentials to keep one alive while starving. Click here for a refresher.

Mainstream outlets only picked up on this last month.

Needless to say, the IV diet presents some major health issues. It’s also not that convenient. How many weeks on end can you disappear in a given year without arousing suspicion, to say nothing of the limitations on actually having a real life – who wants to spend weeks at a time away from home?

This is why she chose something, for her anyway, that was more … flexible. In more ways than one.

She was always super thin before baby. But after baby it’s been hard to lose the last 10. And to her credit, she did try hard. But nothing was working. And drastic measures had to be taken. Which is why she’s had one of those “lap band” things installed. Like gastric bypass (stomach stapling) only much less invasive.

But it’s typically for the morbidly obese. Not for an already slender women wanting to be more slender who is carrying around an extra few pounds.

Whatever. This is Hollywood. And this is a woman who needs to keep up.

So the weight came off. She’s stick thin again. And all’s good, right?

Well… the problem is that they’ve always wanted to add to their family. And it’s apparently recommended that the device be deflated or however they render it ineffective when a couple is trying to conceive. So he’s been like – ok, you’re done, you’re back to where you wanted to be so let’s get going!

But she’s too scared to stop the band thing, she’s addicted to the skinny, and her body over baby choice is now threatening her marriage.

MY GUESS: Well it has to be someone who had the baby a little while ago- I don't think it's a recent mom. My guess is Debra Messing

Madonna and Guy Divorcing

This time it is not just rumours- it was confirmed by her publicist Liz Rosenberg. They released a press release confirming that after 7 1/2 years together they are divorcing. Not exactly shocking now is it...

Wednesday, October 8, 2008

America's Next Top Model

Well they are setting it up for Analeigh or Lauren Brie going home this week

Lauren Brie is not posing well at all- I thought for sure she would be the winner but they are setting her up to go home

God I hate Marjorie with her Hunching it's horrid.

I can't believe that they are surprised that it was a challenge- it is always a challenge!

God Marjorie and her incessant whining is just getting to be too much!! Just stop!! You are pretty and can win if only you weren't so neurotic!

Ok the Elena crying thing was completely annoying

Oh Lauren Brie didn't do well- maybe she willl go home.

I can't stand McKey's mouth- I find it very annoying

I love that Tyra needs to promote her fiercies with this show

I think it will be Samantha and Lauren Brie in the bottom two and I would like to see Samantha go

Marjorie did have the best shot- with makeup the girl is just stunning

Ok I was wrong with the bottom two- I didn't predict Sheena. I think with these two it will be Lauren Brie going home. Although I think she has more modelling potential then all of them- she looks like models now. I don't get why they get rid of these people- I mean the people they pick don't make it.

Dancing with the Stars

I would like to thank the producers for allowing Max to dance his jive and shake his booty profusely- thanks so much!! Much appreciated!!

Haha I love that Cloris made it through again- she is not going anywhere- dancing ability be damned!

For the love of god send home Rocco- all his bloody cooking references are getting tiresome

Cheryl just looks angry everytime she's around Maurice- i don't think she's a big fan of his

Ok I find it awkward when Julianne and her brother dance together...I mean she is all scantily clad and they are all sexy dancing and wiggling their hips- it's just odd!! Their hip thrusts in each other's direction is disturbing beyond belief

Love Jennifer Hudson's dress- love the colour and the cut looks great on her

Of course it would have been Rocco- he's awful! Send him home!

Pushing Daisies

I have been looking forward all day to spend time with the pie-maker tonight!

I hope this shows how dangerous and scary clowns really are!!

God I hope they break into song in this episode- it always makes my life!

Haha a clown car filled with dead clowns- god I love this show!! It just makes my life

Oh look acrobats are scary too- I don't trust anyone who can contort their body like that!!

Lainey Blind Item

It’s easy but it’s not hard
Caution right off the top – if you’re the prudey type, some details here are not for you. Click away or hold your peace. Don’t be emailing me with a lewd complaint since you were given ample warning.

Celebrities are surrounded all the time by beautiful women. Especially him. He boasts an impressive track record, minus one infection, and so you would think, for a regular, non famous girl, even a really, really beautiful non famous girl, it would be an insurmountable obstacle to catch his eye…right?

Not so.

But just because it’s easy to attract him doesn’t mean it’s easy to … pleasure him. Turns out his libido doesn’t quite match up to the legend. And his prowess isn’t exactly the smoothest either. SO disappointing.

She and her girlfriends found him at a club in Vegas recently. Danced in front of his booth and eventually caught his eye. He sent over the bodyguard, they were invited to join, and soon everyone ended up in his suite, even though he’s supposed to have a sexy steady. On this night however he was playing single.

First he asked his evening’s target to give him a massage. She obliged. Eventually they ended up alone in his room. Making out turned to sex. He used a condom and went through the conventional motions. Highly unimaginative and even a little… gross?

Apparently our superstar superstud releases the most unpleasant sound effects. Grunts and groans and straight up no rhythm pounding, making it clear that without a cinematographer and a world class director, he isn’t exactly the undercover loverboy we all believed he was.

Like, no moves whatsoever.

Needless to say, his lame technique wasn’t getting him anywhere, so in relief he asked her to fondle his boys instead. By boys I mean balls. A gorgeous, willing girl in his bed, game for anything… and in the end he could only finish in his own hand in front of her.

Too much champagne, I guess. But still… dude… if this is how you stray, you might need to work on your alcohol to erection ratio. This kind of thing is an embarrassment.

MY GUESS: It is someone who has hooked up with Paris Hilton (the infection). My first guess was Adrian Grenier- but I don't think he is considered a superstar. Maybe Leonardo Dicaprio? I mean she seems disappointed...but I don't think he ever hooked up with Paris...Oh maybe Colin Farrell?

UPDATE- ANSWER: It is Leo for sure. First, he did hook up with Paris years ago. And today Lainey confirmed it pretty much by saying that hopefully Bar will raise the bar for him

Dancing with the Stars

Susan- there is something about her that just creeps me out. I swear she thinks that she is still in her 20s. I mean I know it's a jive but I swear there is a way for it to be age appropriate. The hair and the fake boobs are just odd agains the neck and arms. She looks like she keeps forgetting parts of the dance and has to look at him. I can acknowledge though that she is in way better shape than me and is a better dancer

At least Kim isn't back this week- I was scared they would bring her back to replace Misty

Lance- it is time to dance ballroom on the ballroom show!!! Ok they are going to listen and try to score better- I mean if they want to stay on the show they have to. I think he is a bit tight- he has to loosed up. He needs to pretend she's a dude and get some chemistry.

Maurice- I am not a big fan of his. It wouldn't bother me if he went home this week. I mean that wasn't horrid but I'm still not necessarily a big fan....I also don't really like Cheryl Burke so I may be biased

Rocco- ok I take back the last statement. I would rather see Rocco go home since he is just awful. He calls his parents old foggies?! This guy is a total loser. This waltz really isn't very graceful. I mean yes he can lift her and spin her but he's not a good dancer.

Warren- I do like him- I hope he doesn't get too corny. I like him right now. He is just so light on his feet for a big guy- remember how big and clunky and awful Master P was? This guy looks like a guy who would be comfortable in a skirt and pair of heels- he has embrassed his feminine side. His posture is bad and he needs to point his toes more but I like him

Cody- this guy does nothing for me- maybe it's the brows but I just can't handle him. Oh god Miley Cyrus!!! I HATE HER!! THIS IS MAKING ME HATE HIM MORE!! I can't handle her- her mouth just infuriates me!! Then the god awful voice that comes out of it just makes me even angrier! This guy is just the worst- he thinks he's funny but he's horribly awkward- he's like a bad standup comic. At least he cut his har but still- not a fan. For the love of god stop the air guitar on her leg!! Ok he can go home too

Ok Cloris going after Cody is pretty amusing...I do like her- the quintessential cougar!!

Toni- I find the costumes to be rather odd- I mean I don't know why she has the wig and he doesn't...the historical facts are horrid- but I guess at least it is covering up her belly button. I think I would rather the music just stay constant- I don't like the "rock" elements. The dance was good though- she is good at this. I do love her partner though- because he is a sexy beast. he is just beautiful- I will have to look at him since my original sexy beast Max is gone

Cloris- I do like her...I think she is pretty funny. I mean yes she is not acting age appropriate- but she's funny about it and not taking herself seriosly. I truly think Susan Lucci thinks she can pass for 20 and that creeps me out.

Brooke- she is by far the best dancer- as long as people vote for her she has this in the bag.

Well it's nice to see Misty May but where is my sexy beast Max!? Oh there he is! And he's rocking the cheesy leather tie- love him!

Amazing Race

Wow I think Terrence totally has abusive boyfriend potential- the whole only talk to me thing is scary. I mean the guy has serious serious issues- look at him whining about his head!!

Oh god now he's saying he was an ass because he bumped his head?!!? What the hell is wrong with this guy?

Oh they are all on the same plane- that gets rid of any lead any one had

Anthony is yet another complete jackass- I mean he is insulting the cars constantly in front of the cabbie!!

Oh god the blondes are idiots- they are excited because they might get a tan on the dunebuggy?

I really like the comic geeks- I definitely think that I am rooting for them

The frat boys have to go- they suck.

I don't mind Sarah but I'm rooting against her team just because her boyfriend.

Oh god the divorcees are tards- why the hell are they digging?!?!!? I can't believe that they don't realize it refers to the other detour!

Man the divorcees are completely ridiculous- you always ask your taxi to stay!

Go geeks go!! Oh I wanted them to get first! Is it just me or does Tina remind you of a prettier faced Linda Hogan?

Wow Nick has to show a bit of patience when he asks for help!!

Dude- the blondes are retards. Brazil is portuguese!

And look Nick isn't going back to help him- the kid needs to show a bit more patience and has to be better with the other teams

Oh god the divorcees are useless- they won't be there for long

Oh I guess Stephanie won't be proposed to at the finish line. Anthony is thankful for his looks?! Douche

Stampin Up Newsletter

I've decided to use my blog to get out some stamping news so I will be putting these up here from now on- I need to spread the joy of stamping any way I can!!

There is also a promotion on the aquapainter- you can get the large tip aquapainter for $8.50. This is a great deal that I'm super excited about- I will definitely be doing some watercolouring and bleaching in future classes.

If you want free product the best way to do it is to host a party!! I started off stamping by hosting a party and let me tell you it set me up! You only need 5 friends and yourself and I'll come over and we'll do 3 really fun cards. If you host between now and November 30th you have the potential of getting one free stamp set from the catalogue sampler in addition to all the regular hostess benefits and free product. This is a great time of year to do this- everyone needs cards during the Christmas season!

Time to start thinking of Christmas! Please email me and I will send you a Christmas wish list to this email with the instructions. Fill it out with all of the items you've been wanting from the catalogues and send it back to me. Then tell your friends and family to get in touch with me and I'll help them order the items you want for Christmas. Or you can give me their email addresses and I will send them the list- they can then order the items themselves through online ordering. If you send your wish list back to me I will enter your name into a draw for a free stamp set. I will also enter your name again for every order that is placed by one of your friends/family from your list. I can't wait to see what you guys put on your list! (I'm all about the crop o dile right now)

There are quite a few new decor elements that have been created and some old ones in new colours. I just ordered the Baroque ones and can't wait to put them up once I paint my room- love love love them!

And of course never forget about the dormant list- these are stamp sets that are still for sale but are not in the current catalogue

Also please remember that I will be having Christmas stamp a stacks in both Kirkland Lake and Toronto this month- please let me know if you are interested

For those of you who have read through this whole thing I have some big news- my own big October surprise. For every $50 that you spend in the month of October- either by ordering through me or online- your name will be entered into a draw. At the end of the month I will draw one name and this lucky person will win a Deer Friends stamp set! As you all know this is a Level 2 Hostess set that happens to be my favorite Christmas set!

Stay tuned for some class dates- I will be doing one on bags and boxes for Christmas and also one on all the fun things you can do with reinkers.

As always if you have any questions please let me know

Thanks for everything everyone,

Stampin! Up Demonstrator

America's Next Top Model

Marjorie will definitely be in the bottom today- they are really profiling her.

Yes Clark that's the best way to go about this competition- think of pleasing your grandmother...idiot...

Holy headcase Batman- I think that Marjorie is a bit loopy

God McKey's hair makes her look so bad!

Marjorie actually looks really good at her shoot- she doesn't even look like the same person. She needs to change her attitude because she really have a future in this.

Oh Clark is pretty arrogant- that could mean she is in the bottom 2

I don't like McKey's shot- she just looks like she flopped

I think the bottom two will be Joslyn and Clark and Joslyn will go home

I've got my ANTM mojo back- I predicted the bottom two! Oh but I was wrong it's Clark going home- good!! I love how shocked Elina is- she's upset she's losing a potential lover in her mind

Pushing Daisies

God I'm soooo excited that this show is back!!!!

I love how much of a background they gave at the beginning- anyone could get into this show. Wow those are quite the hives on the dead girl.

Yup I still love emerson and hate chuck.

Oh my god Olive goes and becomes Maria- this show is bloody genius!! When the poor take her stuff I almost fell over laughing.

Also loved the special effects with the bees- I've said it once and I'll say it again- this show is magical! Best show on tv hands down!

What the Hell?!?!?!?

I'm so baffled I'm practically speechless. My most favourite sexy beast of a dancer is now dating the horrible haired newly big boned Cheryl Burke?!!?! I mean yes it does bring hope to the big girls that this sexy beast might date one; however, I still hope that he was just leading her because she was drunk

Lainey Blind Item

Because he ignores her
Another week, another riddle involving a coke fiend. Everyone does it, but it's not the doing that's intriguing, it's the who's doing that's intriguing. Especially since her reputation is supposed to be so civilised and enlightened: a doting mother, a successful business, an artist (debatable), and an icon to many a MiniVan member. ironic as it may seem considering the original spirit of the inspiration.

The situation is actually even more shocking considering her past. Having had that kind of experience with addiction though, perhaps there are only 2 roads: to shun drugs fiercely or, as it is in this case, to embrace them dangerously in her time of need.

It's not just genes that keep her so thin.

Turns out it's a habit that's making her very sick. Friends and family are becoming concerned. They're saying "she's not doing well", observing that her use has dramatically escalated, that she is becoming increasingly anti-social and withdrawn, removed out of embarrassment from her usual circle, and when forced out in public, looking awkward and seemingly unable to cope in social settings where she was once comfortable.

The reason?

It's not those laughable rumours of infidelity. It's actually because he ignores her. Never the child, but always her. Not deliberately but because she has no part in his life. It used to be he'd show up for the professional events, at the very least. Now she has to beg. And then it's only a maybe. He's not spiteful about it, he just doesn't care. Even on the forced holiday he could barely bother to acknowledge her and when they came home, he couldn't wait to get away.

So she retreats and she escapes and he still doesn't notice. When confronted about it by close confidantes, he insists there's not a problem. And he probably truly believes that, completely oblivious is he to her problems.

As such, her team is desperately trying to get her some new work, something else to focus on instead of moping around at home weighed down by disappointment.

Artistically though, it may be bad news. Forcing a project on the heels of something already forced is probably just going to lead to more sh*t.

Having said that, if it saves her, in the end, I guess that's what friends would do.

ANSWER: This one is just too easy. OF COURSE it's Sarah Jessica Parker!! Her business- the clothes and perfume. An icon as Carrie Bradshaw. The laughable infidelity rumours that Matthew cheated. The recent vacation in Ireland. Even the "project on the heels"...a nice shoe reference. I love when they are this easy! I mean the woman used to live with Robert Downey Junior- she knows her way around a mound of blow...

Dancing with the Stars

Toni- while I admit she's a good dancer I wish she would cover up that belly button!! Her partner is a sexy beast- I've never noticed him before...I mean he's not as hot as Max but he's still good looking. Oh he's married to Edyta- who knew?!

Brooke- I feel like they are starting to reuse costumes- I swear I've seen this dress before. She does seem a bit wooden here...I think that she is thinking too much about being serious. She needs to loosen up a bit for this- maybe she needs scary spice's whip

Rocco- oh god this guy is too much for me...I'm all for the cheese but he's too much- he's nauseating. Oh and look he is pretending to season the dance floor...nice... What the hell is up with her wig? I agree with Bruno- he was hardly moving. She did everything.

Lance- you should go traditional if you want to stay in this! Lance bass is dancing to I kissed a girl?!!? HAHA!! That is actually quite cute! He does have the intensity but not the woodeness. He does have to work on his posture- they will definitely say somthing about that...haha he did kiss a girl- very cute!! Oh look Jay from Queer Eye is there!

Kim- it is hard for someone who has absolutely no personality and is vapid to be sexy in my opinion. Wow that costume is incredibly unflattering. Nope that was not great in my opinion- very boring. Exactly- she is completely distant and cold- there is nothing going on there...she's laughing because she just doesn't understand anything

Misty- Oh Max you are a sexy beast. But you have to be a bit more of a supportive teacher. Again I feel that the costumes are being recycled- this looks like one of his outfits with Scary. Great song btw. She is still very stiff- this girl needs some major yoga classes. It looks like 2 men out on the dance floor!

HAHA- love that Tom Bergeron said he liked it better when Mel B did it- HAHA!! Exactly!!

Maurice- he really doesn't do much for me. I also don't like her so it doesn't help. Her hair does look better though- she should consider just wearing the wig. I can't stand the rumba- it alsway sbores me. I guess he is moving more than some of the other men who did tis dance so that's good.

Cloris- I don't think that she is going anywhere...I think the audience will keep them around. She is actually doing pretty well tonight. I think the wig helps mask her hair and age. It's a good slow dramatic dance for her which suits her. At the end it got a bit more sloppy but still her best dance.

Susan- boring. next.

Warren- again I am amazed by how light this big guy is on his feet. Ok the end was a bit rough and all over the place but overall I think he did a good job

Cody- I still can't get past his eyebrows. I do like this dance though- I think they are doing a really good job. And I don't normally like the rumba but this is good

I think Maurice will go home- or if the gods are listening it will be Kim

This is Why I Love Her

Who else could walk in these?! Thigh high heel-less boots....god I worship her!!

Amazing Race

Yay!!! I'm so excited this show is back on- love it!!

Tony and Dallas- mother and son teams never really do well on this show. He does look athletic and they don't seem to argue so maybe they are ok

Nick and Star- siblings- they will be gone in the middle probably

Ken and Tina- separated couple?!!? He cheated?!?! Oh god these two are going to fight like mad!!

Aja and Ty- oh god a long distance couple- they will be a train wreck too!!

Marissa and Brooke- oh god another blonde team...they will just annoy me

Andrew and Dan- fraternity brothers...they aren't even terribly attractive!!

Anthony and Stephany- oh god the marriage pressure...these two will self destruct immediately

Anita and Arthur- oh god what do I say??!?! Beekeeper hippies?!?! Look at their hair!!! Oh god!?!? First team gone

Kelly and Kristi- Kristi looks familiar- has she been on another reality show??

Terence and Sara- newly dating?!! Again- this seems like the trainwreck couple season!

Mark and Bill- comic book geeks!? Ok these guys might compete with the hippies as the first couple eliminated- I don't seem them being physically capable

I can't believe they don't have an athletic goodlooking all guy team- that is rare...I guess it gets too predictable since they always win

Wow the comic book geeks are first- maybe they will pleasantly surprise me!

Oh god Terence seems needy and jealous Sarah- run away, run fast!!

I would not be good climbing down that net- thank god I didn't have to do that in city chase!

Wow Star and Nick were first- all these teams are surprising me!

Well I think those frat brothers are definitely going home

Ok I feel bad making fun of the gray hippies- they seem like they are very very nice people. They just desperately need a haircut!!

Quote of the Day

“Canada was a warm-up — a good place to get the kinks out. Our hometown is here, in the Northeast. These are the fans who help take the show to another level.”

- Joey McIntyre talking about the concert in New Jersey

And to that I say- excuse me!??! You used us as a warm-up?!? We screamed our asses of- I do believe we took your show to another level- you don't need them!


ScarJo Wedding!

Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson got married on Saturday night in Canada- I now have to look to see if they got married in Vancouver while I was there...if so why oh why didn't I stalk them!?!?

Ok it was just outside Vancouver- maybe we saw the resort on our airplane tour and didn't realize it!


New Celeb DUI

Heather Locklear?! Seriously- who knew Heather Locklear was a drunk!?!? Poor little Ava Sambora- she has two parents in and out of rehab, getting duis, poor thing!!! Perez said rumour has it Heather Locklear was not only in rehab for anxiety and depression but also for alcohol and pills.

I mean are these people retarded?!?!? Why would you drive under the influence when you have that much money!?!??! Hire a driver!!

Video of the Day


America's Next Top Model

I'm just back from Vancouver and catching up on my tv

Oh my god Hannah what the hell do you think you are doing?! This girl is just too stupid for words

Oh god Hannah did not do well...she is god awful. I also didn't like McKey- for the love of god give her her name back!!

Of course it had to be Hannah going home- of course no one else was as horrid as she was!

I think Isis is totally going to go home soon- she is way too nervous- I mean the bottom of her bathing suit was never going to be photographed anyway

Lauren Brie is going to win this competition- she is under the radar and going to go to the end.

I think that Jocelyn and Elina will be in the bottom two.

Man I was not paying close enough attention to this episode obviously- I was completely off with the bottom two.

Oh Isis is gone- I knew she would go soon just not yet necessarily this week

Man the news just gets more and more shocking.....Lindsay Lohan has confirmed that she is dating Samantha Ronson...shocking...

Dancing with the Stars

Oh it's a new season of Dancing with the Stars- this is all we will be talking about tomorrow at lunch. Go Jefferson Darcy!!

Oh yuck a Hannah Montana star...oh god he beatboxes?!!?!! I HATE BEATBOXING!! Are there enough young kids to vote for this kid? He's actually an ok little dancer- he has rhythm and confidence pretty soon. Oh I actually thought they did better than 6- he wasn't that bad.

Rocco- I'm not expecting much. Especially if Karina is injured and he is a chef. How is she injured exactly? That was ok- didn't do much for me.

Oh god Toni Braxton- her belly button terrifies me!! THey actually aren't bad dancers- but popstars are usually good at this. It's not very surprising

I am aware that I am not in peak physical condition- but it shocks me how much weight Cheryl Burke gains season after season- it's just weird to see in a dancer. And got I hate her hair! That was an ok dance- I never have as much fun watching the ballroom dances.

Brooke Burke- hyperextended legs are an asset!! I work hard to keep mine in check because it leads to knee problems!! This is actually pretty good. she needs to do a bit more footwork but they had good rhythm.

Go Jefferson Darcy!! He actually did a pretty good job!

Lance Bass just introduced himself as a singer with Nsync...mmmm they aren't a group anymore! Oh Lance is a bit stiff. But not horrid. Oh there's Joey in the audience- I wonder if he can get Justin?

Go Cloris Leachman! I mean she is 82- you go girl! Her legs look quite good- she's spunky too! Ok that was just cute. She obviously won't last long but good for her for trying! Why the hell is her leg on the desk

Jeff Ross- I have seen him as a comic and he was ok. Edyta- you are known for trying to get as nude as possible on stage. I like his attitude! I mean he's horrible yet charming and endearing all at the same time

Please Kim Kardashian you are best known for your ginormous ass and porn career. This girl has no effin personality- just listening to her speak shows that there is nothing there! No wonder you have such horrible balance- those ass implants are pulling you backwards!! This pains me to admit- but she's not horrid....I think she will last another week- yuck. How can there be emotion and chemistry when this girl has absolutely no personality! I love her partner Mark though- he seems like a really nice cute boy- he's so polite

It really doesn't matter how Susan Lucci does- she isn't going anywhere. She has enough of a minivan majority fanbase to make it through. Susan Lucci it's a family show- behave!

Misty May Treanor- I can't believe they were able to get someone who just won a gold medal- she's still a big name. MAXSIM!! My sexy ballroom beast is back!! God I love him! Listen to Max..he's a sexy beast and knows all

Well the football player usually does well but this Warren is pretty big. He actually is pretty light on his feet- I think he will definitely stick around. he mean it is a bit awkward but he looks like he's having fun.

Well although he's funny I definitely think that Jeffrey Ross will be going home

New Kids on The Block Concert!!

By popular demand here is my New Kids on the Block review!!

First off let me tell you I've been looking forward to seeing them again for the past 20 years since the first time I saw them!! Just buying the tickets I was sweating and shaking I was so excited.

So the night started with us sitting in the marche singing and dancing and making the Joe doll move- thank you Mandy May for bring her Joey Joe Bird McIntyre doll- that was amazing!

So just walking to the ACC I was getting pretty ridiculous and hyper- I don't think that I've ever been as excited for any other concert in my life.

When we went in we went straight to the merchandise- unfortunately I don't have any of my original New Kids wear so I of course needed to fit in and wear NKOTB wear. I kid you not about 80-90% of the audience was wearing something NKOTB that night- it was like a lovely lovely cult! I have never seen a merchandise booth so packed full of people in my life- it was insane!! But Mandy and I persevered and got our glittering pink Cover Girl tank tops- that's right- I rocked that shirt with pride!!

So we finally went into the concert and discovered that our seats were quite fantastic- down in the 100s I knew I would get some amazing views of my boys!

Natasha Bedingfield was singing...saw her sing Unwritten...that was enough for me. I mean I have nothing against her but really I was there for the 5 bad brothers from Beantown land.

The anticipation of them coming on was overwhelming- I was SOOOO worked up!! When the lights went down I started screaching and stomping my feet- I quite literally lost my mind!! I'm telling you I have never ever been to a concert that was that loud and deafening. I mean I don't think it's possible to explain the insanity of the evening. Last night was the first concert that went on sale- it was the concert that had all the hardcore fans going crazy. All of the 10 year old girls are now 30 and trying to recreate their youth- it was insane!

They come up on a platform in a V formation and did their single song. Then they launched into My favorite girl. I kid you not- and I'm not just talking as a crazy fan- they were amazing!! They sounded great, they were incredibly enthusiastic and amazing performers and their dancing was fabulous! They really were great on stage.

I can't remember the song order because it was all just a blur of me screaming and losing my shit but essentially they played all the hits...and then some! When they did the Right Stuff I went mad- and when they did the right stuff dance I couldn't contain myself.

They danced on the mainstage then they came to this circular rotating stage with a piano on it that was right in front of us- it was fantastic!! We were soooo close!!

Individually they each did some stuff. Donnie was definitely the most interactive member of the group with the audience. He was very chatty and was getting the audience to scream more and more. He got so moved after Jordan's I'll be Loving You Forever that he cried- CRIED!! It was quite moving- he was so moved by the audience...because again- everyone was stark raving mad! He also did a solo "rock" version of Cover Girl that made me go mental- that was always my favorite song! (hence the tank top!)

I remember there was a long time when I wouldn't admit my love of the New Kids or my other cheesy fans because I didn't want to be made fun of. Well screw it- I'm too old for that shit. I'm going to keep wearing my shirt loud and proud in the future!!

Anyways, Danny did a bit of solo stuff. He had a little breakdance routine that he did and he came out with Jon with a camera and they put on Lady Gaga and were video'ing the audience- I'm not sure if it was for a video but I danced like no one was watching- hell I did that for the whole concert.

Jon didn't really do much- he had a solo line in my favorite girl...and that was about it. He did seem quite happy and didn't look like he wanted to run backstage- it looks like he conquered the anxiety stage fright and did well!

As for Joey Joe Bird he was definitely having fun! He was dancing his way off the stage and really got into his song. He was PASSIONATE! During Please Don't Go Girl he got down on his knees to emote...he was feeling it!! As was I! He also did a solo song that he got to emote in. He asked the audience if they were doing ok after 15 years- and they truly were! He was great- he sounded amazing and was surprisingly attractive- all he has to do to be truly hot is shave the pube stash he had going.

And then there's of my life...admittedly he sort of lost me a few years back when I watched the Surreal Life and he was such a prick it turned me off of him. But sitting there his voice brought out all the 11 year girl love that I had for him...I saw the rat tail and again he was main man! LOVE HIM!! He sounded soooo good! Granted he lipsynched his way through his solo song I'll give it to you but he was still great. He can still sing those high notes- and sadly it still made me squeal!! LOVE HIM!!! The best part though- he comes up at one point with a white blouse on (that's right, a blouse) that was unbuttoned and sang in front of a wind machine that blew his shirt around....amazing! Admittedly I peed myself laughing at it but it was a great moment. His body was fantastic actually- very toned and little- just how I like it!! He really did sound fantastic. He didn't really interact with the audience though- he left that to Joe and Donnie.

The did all the big hits then came out and did Step by Step as the first encore- I went nuts. Then the finally was Hangin Tough- by this time I was pretty much ready to be institutionalized I was so excited! They were soooo good! They sounded amazing and were so genuinely pleased to be there and excited that the audience was so into it.

So to sum up they were amazing, I was insane, and good times were had by all!!
