I've just found the 30-Second Bunnies Theatre (via pesky apostrophe) and thought I'd pass it on...

30-Second Bunnies Theatre

Thursday, December 08, 2005


Unless you live under a rock, you probably know that today is the 25th anniversary of John Lennon's murder. Me, I was all of 4 years old when he died so I can't speak to the experience of that time myself. I "discovered" (doesn't every teenager think they're the first to discover something) John Lennon when I was in junior high... I caught a Beatles documentary on cable and was hooked. I immediately took to John because he was clearly the smart and talented one. And Paul's an asshat (and clearly, that's my new favorite word)... sorry, he's not untalented and he maybe used to be cool but... ok, here it is:

It's Lennon-McCartney, fucker... you made a deal so deal with it. Work out a new deal w/John in your afterlife but right now, shut the fuck up cause nobody wants to hear it. And that's all I have to say about that.

Anywho - I suddenly loved me some John Lennon. So, I did what I do when I'm interested in any new subject... I obsessively researched. Checked out every book and video and CD at the library and soon I knew more about John Lennon than anybody ever. Heh... right. But I did know a lot more than anyone I knew. John was a super intense interest of mine during my junior high & high school years. I highly recommend the Imagine: John Lennon documentary, which I used to check out the out of the library every chance I'd get. I watched it over and over and over and it now has a place of honor on my TVR...

His art - music, visual, all of it - was is incredibly beautiful & inspiring to me. I hope that teenagers will be "discovering" him until the end of time and that one day soon the world will truly live as one... just as he imagined.

TV Talk

Hmmm... so Project Runway is still the coolest reality show ever. Last night's two episodes were super awesome. I wish it was already next Wednesday! My early favorites are Chloe, Nick & Diana. I loved Santino's semifinal dress but didn't really feel the leather jacket skirt thingy he made for the first official challenge. Plus he's already kind of an asshead. And how about that kind of evil first challenge... I was wondering how they'd top the grocery store "innovation" episode. (Ha! I'm watching the commercial for Skating with the Stars... I love the part where they smash their heads into the ice the best. I might have to watch just to see that over and over.) I'd be sad about my favorite outfit but I still don't think I'd lame out like Kirsten did. There were a couple of designers that made a bad first impression... but I'll hold off on judging them too harshly right now... except you Santino. Asshat. And you Zulema.

Also, super pleasantly surprised by ANTM's final episode... I thought for sure Miss-lack-of-Personality Nik would win. I'm glad Nicole won. They really had me worried with the first elimination... thought they were going keep crazy Bre.

I'm watching last night's episode of Isaac... he's fucking genius. I want to live in his TV/design studio. I'm often disappointed with his clothes at the 'get (the rest of his Target stuff pretty much rocks)... but I can't get enough of him otherwise. SO glad we got cable (& TVR, heh) in time to see the first episodes. I'm having a better day everyday that he's on my TV.

I think that's all the TV talk for now. Although... what was with The O.C. being on until 9:13? Oh. HAHAHAHA... I forgot the power of the TVR. And yeah, I know it's a DVR but if I can't use the name TiVo for my new faux-TiVo, then TVR is the next best thing.

Have a Better Day

Say what? Isaac Mizrahi has a new talk show? Awesome. And we just got digital cable on Friday... perfect. I hope it's as good as his old show. How could you really go wrong with Isaac... starts Monday night @ 7:00 on Style network.

Project Runway Countdown

There's a lot of press about Project Runway 2 around lately. Elle has a few pages devoted to it in their December issue (with Joss Stone on the cover). Included are updates about Jay, Austin and Kevin. And a couple of ads for the show with Hoidi holding paper cut-outs of the 16 (up from 12) new designers... including the very annoying Daniel from Season 1, Episode 1. Boo. Joe & I both hope he gets cut the first episode again... in fact, they should bring him back every season and cut him the first episode. Heh.

Anyway, I'm getting ready for Season 2 by reading the TWOP recaps of Season 1 and also re-reading Tim's Take on the Bravo website. In case you don't know, Tim Gunn is the most awesome member of the Project Runway team (followed closely by Michael Kors). Here's a sampling of his wit (from season 1, episode 5):
But, Wendy, can you give the asymmetry a rest? Alexandra handles asymmetry masterfully — and thoughtfully. With Wendy, it becomes a serious distraction. I looked at the dress on the runway and thought, "This dress would look so much more appropriate if Joy had scoliosis."
As for the countdown... only 21 more days.

Wish List: DVD Special Edition

Oh, DVD's... I can never get enough of you.

I've been waiting for them to re-release The Muppet Movie & The Great Muppet Caper for a couple of years and finally they'll be out on November 29th. Kermit's 50th Anniversary Editions no less. Wow... Kermit is getting old... how come Big Bird's still only 5 years old? Speaking of Jim Henson's genius, I have also been eyeing Fraggle Rock: Complete First Season and The Muppet Show: Season One. The original pilot of The Muppet Show was called "Sex & Violence!"? Awesome.

Other movies I waited years for but haven't bought yet: The Turning Point - awesome ballet movie with Anne Bancroft & Shirley MacLaine and Two for the Road - one of my favorite Audrey Hepburn movies.

Other TV shows I want on DVD... Seinfeld: Season 4, Season 5 & Season 6 and Lost: The Complete First Season.

Some other DVD's I want... Unzipped - Isaac Mizrahi documentary... if they ever release The Isaac Mizrahi Show on DVD that would be super cool. I Heart Huckabees - this movie rocks big time. Melinda & Melinda - very good Woody Allen movie... the only time I haven't cursed at the very site of Chloe Sevigny. Empire of the Sun - I love this movie... one of my favorite Spielberg movies. Band of Brothers - I can't even say enough good things about this mini-series brought to you by Spanks (Spielberg & Hanks).

My Wes Anderson collection is really sad considering how much I enjoy all of his movies. Here are the ones I don't own: Bottle Rocket, Rushmore & The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. And yes, I know that's every movie he's ever made except The Royal Tenenbaums.

Whoa! That's a lot of DVD's...

Wish List: More Books

Here are 10 more books I'd love to own...

My Prescription for Anti-Depressive Living by Jonathan Adler

Make Your Own Contemporary Quilts by Paola Pieroni

Baryshnikov: In Black and White by Mikhail Baryshnikov

Urban Ore: Resourceful Styles for City Spaces by Marc Kitchen-Smith

by Charles M. Schulz


What a motherf'ing tool...

Bush: Critics try to rewrite Iraq war history

With all the information that's been coming to light lately about some of the things his administration has been up to, he still doesn't get it. He still thinks it's a good idea to walk & talk with that GIGANTIC chip on his shoulder... isn't his approval rating like 5% (ok, 39%)? Sometimes, I really don't have faith that our country is going to make it through his 2nd administration.

Big Ol' Wish List 2005

The only thing left to hint for are gift cards...


And the previously mentioned... Sephora, Beauty First & Aveda.

And for future studio supplies... JoAnn Fabrics, Dick Blick, Pat Catan's, Michaels, & Utrecht are all good.

And really, a gift card from pretty much any store/restaurant is always fun. In fact pretty much any gift is always fun... but hanging out with me is the best gift of all. Hee.

And the very last thing I'd like is a yummy & gorgeous cake from the super cool bakery. Marble w/a chocolate fudgey middle would rock.

Since I really didn't think this wish list thing through and the posts are sort of scattered through the last few weeks, I thought I'd use this post to link to all my previous wish list posts:

Wish List: Home Spa

I was thinking about instituting a little weekly spa-ness into my life. Maybe Sunday Night Spa or Saturday Morning Spa. Spend 2 hours or so just treating myself well. Here are a couple of things that would go with that theme:

The Massage Deck - this will go well with my Yoga Deck. And this book, The Healing Energy of Your Hands, looks interesting to me, too.

Hmmm... there are lots of products I love but gift cards might be easier for stuff like that... I get almost all of my stuff at Beauty First, Aveda & Sephora.

I'm also looking for an inflatable bath pillow that isn't shaped like a f'in shell... so that would be cool, too.

Thrift Finds: Wedges & Peeps

I love shoes... especially cheap cute shoes. And Goodwill helped me out on Saturday. I got these cute wedge slides:

And these cute peep-toe strappy wedge heels:

Both are super comfy. And I got a pair of Steve Madden stretchy slides... also very comfy. And the grand total for all of this? $9.00!

Sunday, November 06, 2005

Wish List: Musical Interlude

I don't have a lot of CD's on my wish list... but here they are:

Counting Down the Days by Natalie Imbruglia
In Between Dreams by Jack Johnson
Emoh by Lou Barlow
Greatest Hits 1990-1999: Tribute Work in Progress by The Black Crowes
The Anthology by The McGuire Sisters
Garden State (Soundtrack) by Various Artists
Nirvana by Nirvana

I'd also like this old-school CD player...

Sony PSLX250H Turntable

I Want: A Time Machine

So I can go back in time and move my mom's car before that f'in tree fell on it...

Saturday, November 05, 2005

Wish List: Light Reading

There's always lots of books on my wish list but I did manage to shorten the list a bit... here are some highlights:

D.V. by Diana Vreeland

I love David Sedaris. I've read Holidays on Ice & Me Talk Pretty Some Day... so that leaves Naked & Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim.

Then there's Other Voices, Other Roomsby Truman Capote, Founding Brothers: The Revolutionary Generation by Joseph J. Ellis, The Unthinkable Thoughts of Jacob Green by Joshua Braff, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon, and Chronicles : Volume One by Bob Dylan.

Some of my favorite books are from the Popular Culture and Philosophy series so I'd love Star Wars and Philosophy by Kevin S. Decker. Keeping in line with that series and another favorite of mine, What Would Buffy Do?, I'd also like to read The Dharma of Star Wars by Matthew Bortolin.

Maybe more later...

Amazon Wish List Highlights

Only 10 more shopping days until my birthday and I'm behind on my gift hints. So I thought I'd highlight some stuff on my extensive Amazon.com wish list. Ready?

Domestic Goddess... there are lots of books & tools that would make you think I never left the kitchen. More like I'm never in the kitchen and that's lame. First there are the cookbooks: I love my Donna Hay Flavors cookbook so I'd love more of her books - Off the Shelf, New Food Fast & Modern Classics (Book 1). Other cookbooks I'd like are Sushi: American Style, Cheesecake Extraordinaire, Everyday Italian, and Jamie's Kitchen. And I'd like to become a cupcake specialist so here are some books that may help: Cupcakes Year-Round, The Artful Cupcake & Cupcakes.

Also here are a couple kitchen tools I'd love: I never know how long to boil an egg and I hear this is awesome - Norpro Egg Rite Egg Timer. And one of these: OXO Good Grips Pastry Scraper, a regular size muffin (cupcake) pan & this Large Cake Decorating Set.

All this linking takes awhile (while your also having a conversation & watching TV anyway) so I'll continue with this later this weekend.

They Were Nice

Just bought and devoured the December Vanity Fair cover story on Kate Moss (which I'd link to but it isn't online yet). Survey says: I think it was a fair article... it dispelled a lot of the recent rumors. The big question was "Can she come back?" and I think they came to basically the same conclusion I did... she'll be back. I've been doing a little "Kate Moss Count" in all my magazines since the scandal broke and I've yet to see a decrease in Kate images - ads or otherwise. I do suspect that some of the ads will disappear after the December issues. But we'll see...

Loving: The New Bunny

Roberto Cavalli has redesigned the classic Playboy bunny outfit for the next generation of Playboy Clubs. The NYT seems to think it's "racier" but I don't remember it being so demure to begin with. It's "racier" because it's all black? Maybe but whatever... I like it.

But not quite as much as the original...

I don't think many people would complain if bunny retro served their drinks instead of bunny modern. Do you?

Inspired By: Japanese Craft Books

Log this under "if I had a million dollars"... I'd buy every Japanese craft book I could find. Here's a whole blog dedicated to them, Crafting Japanese, that I often go to (to dream of owning some of my own). There are hundreds of them for sale on Ebay... here are a few I'm watching:

Project Runway 2

So much Project Runway news... Season 1 will be released on DVD on November 29. Meanwhile, Television Without Pity has added Project Runway to it's recap lineup. Awesome. They previously recapped the postal uniform episode for charity. And then the BIG BIG news, Season 2 starts December 7. I think... there's nothing up yet on Bravo's website but there was a commercial the other day... I hear.

Super sweet.

Christmas Movie Potential: Match Point

New Woody Allen movie comes out on Christmas and it's looks good. It's a drama/thriller... which is surprising. Anywho - it's on my shortlist of Xmas Day movies.

Apple :: Match Point :: Trailer

The Way to My Heart...

is through Kate Moss. At least if you're a magazine who will still put her on the cover these days (like the November issue of W). Vanity Fair is one of my favorite magazines but they lost my subscription (well, my subscription renewal) w/that Paris Hilton cover a couple months ago. Now they just might get me back in December:

But only if they're nice.

I Want: Sex and the City

A long time ago (2 years) in a galaxy far far away... I had this friend borrow my season 1 & 2 Sex and the City DVD's. I've given up ever seeing those sets again... so I need some replacements:

Sex and the City: Season 1

Sex and the City: Season 2

Sunday, October 30, 2005


We just saw Proof... what a great movie. Gwyneth Paltrow should get another Oscar. Anthony Hopkins was also incredible. Wow. It was really good. Go see it.

I Want: Jackie's Pearls

Pearls are cool and Jackie O's pearls were the coolest... so I want some. But I'm sure there is a waaaay cheaper knock-off of these pearls somewhere...

WTF? Ethan Embry Edition

I just caught the last half of this show, Numb3rs, on CBS... Ethan Embry was a guest star and damn, did that boy get buff. When did that happen? I'm so used to seeing him skinny & kinda dorky (think Empire Records) that I didn't even believe it was him. It's like when Anthony Michael Hall showed up in Edward Scissorhands... crazy.

Loving: Madonna Tagging Project

This is cool. Madonna.com has started a project to "build the largest photo archive ever devoted to a single subject: Madonna!" There are over 1400 images already. People can contribute by sending them any image that they don't already have... I think I'll leave that to the people who have time to go through all 1400 images to begin with. Go see it:

Madonna Tagging

I Want: Yoga Toes

I have this issue with my pinkie toe... it likes to curl under my other toes. Especially when I wear close-toed shoes. Since I live in the Extreme Weather Land that is Ohio, open-toed shoes are only an option a few months out of the year. I tried to solve this problem a few years ago by "re-training" my toes with that little foamy toe seperator you use for pedicures. It worked for a few days but then I lost one of the toe seperators and the other one fell apart, so I gave up. I eventually got new ones but they were cheap and didn't help at all. But I think this might be the answer to my toe's prayers:

Yoga Toes ® Toe Trainers

Test Product: L'Oreal Color Pulse

Every once in awhile I just have to try out a new product I see at the store... so I thought I'd pass along my opinion about some of these products. The first Test Product... L'Oreal Color Pulse Concentrated Color Mousse in Iced Coffee.
Color Pulse is a concentrated color mousse that allows you to create vivid, intense color that washes out it only 8 to 10 shampoos. This month, black! Next month, red!
For starters, my hair is already naturally red... sort of a browny-blondy red. A stylist once told me that my natural shade is the most requested fake shade around. So, I certainly have nothing against my hair. But it's fun to change it up once and awhile... I'd been eyeing up Color Pulse so I picked up a can last night at Walgreens. The Iced Coffee shade is a deeper red than what I normally have:

I was hoping for the darker of the two shades. The product was surprisingly easy to use and there was an unbelievable amount of mousse in the little can. The directions reccommend using 2 cans for really long hair... my hair is down to my shoulder blades and one can was more than enough. So, you wash & towel dry your hair, apply the mousse, massage it into your hair, hang out for 30 minutes and rinse. I found it to be just as easy as that. It was hard to tell when my hair was wet but when I woke up this morning, my hair was definitely a deeper red then before. Think Grace from "Will & Grace" red. The color is lovely & very even... this might be my new fall color. I love it. I'd rate it as my number one at-home hair coloring experience.

America's Next Top Model

The last line of TWOP's recaplet of last night's ANTM episode pretty much sums up what I was thinking:
But alas, Kyle was really and truly sent back to the DQ, because being tall and gorgeous and having a great body and actually looking like a model is a detriment to you on this show. Bitches.
Television Without Pity :: America's Next Top Model :: Recaps & Extras :: Season 5 Episode 7

Hating: A Few Things

1. Band-aids... Particularly the 12 I've had on my right middle finger in the last 2 days. Why can't one just stay on for more than 2 hours?

2. The USPS... what's up with my mail, yo? I gave them a weeks notice to start forwarding it. One week after the start date, it was still showing up in my apartment mailbox. Then it just stopped all together. Then I got 1 piece of mail... and then 1 more. That's 2 pieces of mail in 7 days. And neither piece of mail was my Domino magazine.

3. Spyware... yeah, i didn't want to get anything done today anyway. So it was the perfect day to spend 3.5 hours trying to rid my computer of evil adware.

4. Caribou Coffee... thanks for the wrong pastry this morning, idiots. Really started my day off right.

What a crappy day.

I Want: Two-In-One Paper Cutter

My new "studio" needs a paper cutter and this one from Flax Art & Design looks just right:

Inspired By: Thomas O’Brien® Console

Another new regular (hopefully) post... this will include some of the many, MANY things I see that inspire me in my own projects. Or, at least, add new potential projects to my ever-growing list. Hee. This console that I spotted at Target is the inspiration piece for my new TV cabinet:

I have an old TV cabinet (I'll post a picture in the near future) that I hope to customize w/shelves & maybe a drawer or two to make it more functional. It's not the exact same style but I think I can make it work... and it was free!

I Want: Buri Bead Bracelet

I'm starting some new regular posts... this one is called "I want" and there's a couple of reasons for it:

(1) to keep track of where I find these objects
(2) just in case people want birthday/holiday gift ideas
(3) just in case people want random gift ideas
(4) just in case I win the lottery
(5) for fashion/style inspiration

Coming Soon...

Looks like two of my most anticipated new movies will be coming to the Cedar Lee in the next couple of weeks:

Capote starts October 28 and Shopgirl starts November 4... right about the time when I'll actually have time to go see movies.

How is it Thursday already? Where did my week go? I need sleep. Sweet, sweet sleep... I miss you. I could have slept in a little today if I knew the cable guy wasn't gonna show up at the house. At least some of the nasty ass windows got cleaned while I waited. And waited.

I've already missed Arrested Development, House and America's Next Top Trainwreck this week... I just barely got home in time to watch Lost last night. I'd like to watch The O.C. tonight but I'd also like to finish removing wallpaper from the bedroom. FYI people, wallpaper SUCKS. It's almost always ugly and both a pain in the ass to put up & to remove. But I will triumph over the evil wallpaper while the boys install the awesome new bathroom floor.

The Great Kate Debate

So, my question is, how the fuck is Naomi Campbell still working?

Kate Moss has long been one of my style icons. And she still is. This whole thing is, as Gawker put it, a non-shocker. I always thought she was on drugs but that never made me want to do drugs. Nothing about the recent pictures of her snorting lots'o'blow has changed my mind about that. She didn't make it look glamorous or any bullshit like that. If anything, it makes me sad for her. Clearly, Kate Moss needs some serious rehab... there's no doubt about that. But it doesn't make her a pariah.

Some the comments being made about her are really fucked up... one article called her an anorexic freak. First of all, what does her thinness have to do with this? She was plenty thin before she was a model or on coke. Second, the whole argument that she needs to be made an example of for the sake of the children kinda goes out the window when you take a serious disease like anorexia and add a word like "freak" to it. That's sending a great message to teenagers... fucktard. And for the record, Kate Moss is also not to blame for anorexia. She didn't cause my anorexia and I've yet to do coke.

I'm hoping she goes straight to rehab without passing go. And in a year, she can make a huge comeback and everyone will be begging her to appear in their ads again. Until then, I'll be able to skip the 900 pages of ads in Vogue & Elle....

Moss' Drug Mess Intensifies :: Yahoo! News

Today in Kate Moss & Cocaine: Au Revior, Chanel

Yea! Project Jay!

I've been all sad because Jay dropped off the face the earth after Project Runway ended... so I did a Google news search and voila! Project Jay:
The colorful, witty and unpredictable designer from rural Pennsylvania captured America's attention with his powerful designs and off-the-wall personality. This documentary will be the viewers' chance to catch up with Jay to see what he is really like as he enters the fashion business head on.
No word yet on when it will air... hopefully not until I get Bravo back! About the time season 2 of Project Runway premiers would be perfect.

I also found an article that Hoedi would be wearing a Jay dress to the Emmys... but it looks like she wore Dior instead.

Britney's SPF

Aw, that's too bad... I won't be able to refer to Brit Brit & K-Fed's kid as PMS. They actually named the child Sean Preston. So, I'll have to make do with SPF.

Heh. Brit Brit, K Fed & SPF...

Thursday, September 15, 2005

PMS Federline Makes his Debut...

Hahaha... check out the first "picture" of little PMS (via Defamer via American Idle):

The name (Preston Michael Spears Federline) hasn't been confirmed yet but wouldn't it be just like Brit to not do the initial check for her spawn? Like the kid won't have enough disadvantages after they realize you aren't suppose to mix the formula with red bull...

Sunday, September 11, 2005


So, Andre played really great today but he still lost to Roger Federer. I'm kinda of bummed. But I think it's more because Andre seemed to be in retirement mode afterwards. I think it would be sad for him to retire at the level he's still playing... but then I know that he's more than earned it. Well, we'll see.

That was a great match. And a great tournament.

Saturday, September 10, 2005

Happy Dance!!!!!

Okay, I jinxed him in the fourth set so he had to go five (sorry!). But in the end, Andre won. And now he's in the finals. Awesome!

Agassi 6 5 6 4 6
Ginepri 4 7 3 6 3

I hope he gets some good food and even better rest because tomorrow is going to be tough. Both Hewitt & Federer are at the height of their games. But anything can happen... right, Andy Roddick?

Agassi wins thriller to reach U.S. Open final


Ginepri won the second set, Agassi won the third. They just started the fourth. Ginepri is looking pretty run down... they haven't done a Steffi shot for awhile.

So, to recap:

Ginepri 4 7 3 1
Agassi 6 5 6 2

They (John, Mary & Dick) just did the usual "will Andre & Steffi's kids play tennis" talk. Survey says! Only if they want to. Considering that both Steffi & Andre were the product of overzealous tennis parents, I would think that would be their theory. And I agree... parents should just let kids be kids & help them be the best at what they want to do. Support & love, yo...

Someone keeps changing the channel to the Michigan game... only during the commercials though. Now it's 3-3...

Andre should be winning soon so I'll be back then.

This is tiring...

I think I'll give up for a little bit and concentrate on the match... but I'll update a couple more times before it's over.

BTW... it's 5-4 on serve. Second serve.

These titles are hard

OK, they are back on serve after Ginepri broke Agassi and Agassi broke back in the next game. Damn... I need to pay more attention. Andre has fought off 3 breakpoints... now it's deuce. Andre fought off another break opportunity. Deuce #2. Advantage Ginepri. Didn't get it. Deuce #3. Advantage Ginepri. Haha... deuce #4. Advantage Agassi. Finally. Doh. Deuce #5. Breakpoint #6. Deuce #6. This is tense... advantage Agassi. YEA! Awesome. 3-3, second set.


Hey it's a Sampras commercial! I miss Pete...


First set goes to Agassi... 6-4

Hey look, it's another Andy Roddick commercial... poor Andy lost in the first set. Apparently he never found his MOJO.

Steffi shot #1... with a bonus Chris Evert. Steffi shot #2 is quick to follow.

Ginepri held his serve to open the second set. Andre holds his serve. It's 1-1.


The boyfriend is impressed that Ginepri used to date Minnie Driver... uh oh, it's 3-3. Come on, Andre. Maybe I'm not paying enough attention. Now the commentators are being all doom and gloom because Andre lost the last 3 points. Did they see that match the other night? Meanwhile, they're still on serve. Breakpoint Agassi! Sweet. He'll serve for the set after the commercial and I'll be back to update how it went.

Here We Go

Hey, did you guys all know that Andre is OLD? Because it's all that the commentatotrs can talk about...

So, the old man is up 2-0 in the first set. McEnroe must be reading my blog because he just suggested they replace the Connors rain delay match with the Agassi Blake match. Haha, I love Johnny Mac... and now it's 2-1. Heh. I wonder if the players find out what the other is wearing before the match. Agassi wore a blue shirt on Wednesday but today it's a white one. Score update: 3-2 Agassi is still up a break.

Speaking of blue... when did they switch the courts at the U.S. Open from green to blue?

Blogging Super Saturday

No, I probably won't blog all of Super Saturday... or even all of the Agassi-Ginepri match. Because I'll be heading back to my apartment to watch most of it after I eat an omelette. And I don't have interweb access there... :-( Anywho - it'll be fun while it lasts.

Super Saturday: The men's semi-finals followed by the women's final. Here are the matches:

Andre Agassi vs. Robby "I dated Minnie Driver" Ginepri
Lleyton Hewitt vs. Roger Federer
Kim Clijsters vs. Mary Pierce

My picks are Agassi, Hewitt & Pierce. These are the players I'd like to win not necessarily the ones who will.

Boy, it would be nice if they actually started the matched at noon... instead first I'm being subjective to a Martina Navratilova interview. Boring. Sorry, I like her fine but didn't she retire like 10 years ago? Go away. I want Andre!

Alright, I've got an omelette... I'll be back after they actually start this match.

A (New) Classic Match

What an awesome tennis match. Probably the second best match I've ever had the pleasure to watch (the first being the classic Sampras-Agassi quarterfinal of 2001). I knew Andre was capable of winning but I really didn't think he was going to. And then when he was down two sets so quickly, I just begged the universe to let him win one set. Just one set so that I didn't have to hear those retirement tirades over and over and over. And amazingly, he did win the third set and then the fourth set. But I've seen Andre do this before, so I refused to get too hopeful... and then he went down a break in the fifth. To me it was enough that he'd taken it this far but apparently he wanted more. He broke back and took it to a tiebreak. I'm pretty sure I held my breath for the last hour of the match. He let the first match point go and I still didn't let myself believe he'd pull it off. Then he did it... he won. And I jumped up on to my feet at 1:15am and did a happy dance. I knew he could do it. And he did and now, maybe for the next two days at least, the critics can stop banging the Agassi retirement drums. And I won't have to scream at the TV that he's still a top ten player and a better player now than he was at 25. And my boyfriend & neighbors will appreciate that. Believe me.

Such great tennis. It'll be nice if they use this match as a replacement rain delay match... instead of that f'in Jimmy Connors match from forever ago (I'm talking to you CBS). Although, I think USA network uses the previously mentioned Agassi-Sampras 2001 quarterfinal. I love watching that match, even though Andre always loses it. Heh.

Fall TV

It's that time of year again, when TV gives the faux-promise of delivering some new quality, or at least watchable, shows. Here are the returning shows that I consider "must see"...

Monday - Arrested Development
Tuesday - House
Wednesday - America's Next Top Model, Lost
Thursday - The O.C.
Sunday - The Simpsons & The Family Guy, and maybe, Grey's Anatomy

Here are some new shows that interest me (although I doubt I'll bother watching many of them):

Monday - How I Met Your Mother
Tuesday - My Name is Earl looks freakin' hilarious but unfortunately it's on opposite House, my latest TV obsession. Which means I'll also miss out on The Office. This is why I hate you NBC.
Wednesday - Nothing overly intriguing to me here. I'd like to check out Martha's Apprentice but I'm going to give the Janice-less Top Model a chance first.
Thursday - Reunion

And that's it. 4 shows. Great job networks.

Crestline California Real Estate

Are you looking to buy yourself a vacation (or permanent) home in Crestline, California? It just so happens that my Dad's house* is for sale there and it's all gorgeous & tricked out. Here's a picture:

I'm a little sad he's selling it because it's so freaking cool. I hope I can make it out there one more time before he moves. Heh, the last time I was there I got locked out of the part of the house I was staying in. And it was dark and cold and the door was two flights of scary stairs** up. So, I had to run back down and try to get my dad to hear me knock on the door (he was listening to opera) but he didn't. And so I went back up and tried all the doors again but they were still locked so I ran back down and knocked on the door again. And I pretty much thought I was gonna die out there. But then I knocked loud enough to annoy the dogs who started barking and then Dad noticed me and let me in upstairs. Ah... good times. But let's get back to the house.

It's approximately 3664 square feet with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. There are 2 full kitchens, a living room, family room, den and laundry room. There are multiple decks, a garage, a carport, and a snazzy landscaped yard. And the views up there... breathtaking!

But my most favorite part? The third floor. It's where I always crash when I visit... it's just a huge open space with 3 sleeping lofts. The bathroom has a washer & dryer and I think one of the kitchens is up there, too. Or maybe that's on the second floor... I remember a kitchen last time I was there... maybe I got the 2nd & 3rd floors last time I was there... hmmmm... yeah, I think the kitchen is on the 2nd floor. Anywho, the 3rd floor still rocks. If I owned the house, I'd just live up there and rent out the rest. It's awesome to just chill on one of the upper decks and stare at the stars. Yeah... I'm gonna miss that house. Now go buy it.

Truman Capote Movie

I have to say, even though the new Truman Capote biopic looks good and I'm sure that Philip Seymour Hoffman does an outstanding job as Capote... I'm still disappointed that they didn't cast David Hyde Pierce. He's a dead ringer for Capote & talented actor to boot, seems like he'd be a natural choice. But hey, maybe he wasn't available or didn't want the part or something... who knows. Either way, I'm pretty interested in seeing the movie, Truman Capote is one of my favorite authors. The film covers the time period when Capote was writing his "nonfiction novel," In Cold Blood. Which I highly recommend. The movie opens September 30 in L.A. & NYC... so I imagine it will hit the Cedar Lee by late October.

Goodbye Miss Ellie

I hate to say it, but when my mom told me that Miss Ellie had died I was kinda shocked... because I thought she'd died a few years ago. I also would have thought she was much older than 82 but only because she was "so old" when I was a kid. Hey, that would mean that Miss Ellie had JR when she was 8... ew. So, she wasn't dead but now she is and it's sad cause Dallas was one of my favorite shows when I was a kid. And I always liked Miss Ellie... except when Donna Reed played her, she sucked. I loved it best when Miss Ellie would lose her temper and yell at JR. I'm interested in seeing some of her younger roles.

And what is it with lung cancer this week? First Peter Jennings dies (which made me cry.... 5 times), then Dana Reeve announces she's got it (how sad is that?)... and now Miss Ellie. Stupid lung cancer...

Winter Movies

So, I can't say this would be my choice for my Christmas Day movie (I usually see Oscar-ish movies on Christmas) but it looks like the perfect movie to break the winter movie blues. Somehow, even though I seriously dislike Kevin Costner, I almost always enjoy his movies... even the bad ones... like that one where he dies on the boat... with Robin Wright Penn... she's not on the boat but she's in the movie... uh... Message in a Bottle? Sounds right. Anyway, I liked that movie. Shut up.

Rumor Has It...

Blah, Blah, Blah...

Today kinda sucks... in a it's too f'in hot to think and my head really hurts kinda way. So, I thought I'd blog random:

Monk - Boy, TPTB in TV World really know how to fuck up a good thing, don't they? Don't get me wrong, Tony Shalhoub is still genius and I totally still enjoy watching the show just for that reason. But who's fucking bright idea was it to replace Sharona w/the stupid ass chick from Two Guys, A Girl and A Pizza Place? And how exactly is her character a "new direction" from Sharona? She a single mother who's constantly exaperated w/Monk. Sounds exactly like Sharona to me, except now the character's played by a less endearing actress.

The Ballet - Went to the free ballet in the park on Saturday night and it was awesome. My favorite was "Upon Rays of Light" which was set to the music of Ravi Shankar. Very fun indeedy... there will be 5 more weekends of free shows this summer in the Akron & Cleveland areas. So, Check it out.

Um, that's all I got. I had some other stuff but my brain melted so I can't remember it all.


According to the radar, it's storming right now. I love that the weather people can't even get the current weather right anymore...

Differing Opinions

It's a basic fact of life that any given person can have a different take on any given subject. And every person will usually try to twist the facts to back up their opinion. One of the main reasons I don't take many "studies" too seriously is because of this.

For instance, PETA doesn't want me to drink milk so they'll tout lots of studies that say milk causes everything from digestive problems to "autism and schizophrenia in children." But the people of The National Dairy Council® disagree so they quote studies that say that lowfat dairy products, including milk, can help lower cholesterol, control weight and reduce the risks of colon cancer. I look at it this way, I love milk and so I drink it... but usually only after noon because my body doesn't like dairy too early in the day.

It's the same thing w/the fast food debate... did you see Super Size Me? I think the movie brings up some very valid points about the nutritional value of McDonald's food and fast food in general. But at the same time, it is very clear to me that Morgan Spurlock has a definite agenda with the movie. I mean, if you eat 5,000+ calories of anything for 30 days in a row while avoiding all physical activity, you're going to do damage to your body. Of course he got sick (I'd like to see his follow up where he eats that much food on a vegan diet and doesn't gain a pound but I not holding my breath).

Now I'd like to interject a story of my own... when I was in high school, my friend and I ate at McDonald's everyday for 2 weeks straight. The effect on our health? I lost 6 pounds and my friend lost 5! But how can that be? Well, for starters, forget about super sizing... she and I both ate All American meals. A hamburger (or cheeseburger), small fries and small soda (Sprite for me back in those days). That comes to about 650 calories. I couldn't tell you what breakfast and dinner was but I can assure you I never skipped a meal in those days. So, that wasn't all we were eating or anything. I'm not saying I was the picture of good health back then (or now) just that maybe fast food really can be part of a balanced diet. Balanced being the key word. Still, I wouldn't recommend eating fast food more than once a week.

Anywho - this post has taken up enough of my time and I haven't even gotten to the links yet. Here is Morgan Spurlock's blog and here is a counter-opinion site: Morgan Spurlock Watch. I find them both interesting and thought you might, too.

Vacation, All I Ever Wanted...

Ah... vacation. Why are you never as relaxing as you should be? There's something about any vacation where I actually plan stuff that just exhausts the hell out of me. Rocky & Sage are on to something... they're planning an all-inclusive vacation to their backyard this summer. I think I'll try something like that for part of my 4 weeks off this year. Nice... 4 weeks of vacation.

Anywho - me being exhausted is not to say I didn't enjoy my week off. I did. I could just use another week off to recover, you know? But now it's back to work...

Movies and Stuff

I loved I *heart* huckabees! The whole movie was great but Mark Wahlberg's character especially cracked me up. The part where he rides his bike to the fire... hahaha! So funny. I think I might have to buy this movie. I kinda wanna watch it again before I send it back.

Is it just me or do you think the catholics are loving all this attention? I mean, why else would you pick a 78 year old dude to be the new pope. So you can do all this again in 5 years and get more attention. That's why. Yeah, I don't know... I can't wait til next week when the media picks a new story I'm supposed to care so much about but don't.

Oh and AOL/Discovery channel? You're list of the 100 greatest americans is seriously lacking imagination. Tom Cruise? Brett Favre? Michael Jackson? Laura Bush? Dr. F'in Phil? Did you run out of people after 40 or are you just trying to court controversy? Wait, I already know the answer to that. And why so many celebrities? Look, no one loves Madonna more than moi but come. on. There have to be 100 other people who've contributed more to America than her. And Donald Trump ain't one of them. I wonder how they came up with this list... Sage thinks that they asked AOL subscribers, which would explain some of the more ridiculous additions. I bet they had to go through the list and add real historical figures that nobody named. Gah. Excuse me while I go smash my head into a wall...

Monday, April 18, 2005


Ah, Monday... the first day of the rest of the week. I have a little bit of energy today due to a little walk & some coffee. But I expect to crash around 3:00 like I normally do. Even with the extra energy I still can't seem to do anything right today. I am so ready for my vacation next week. And with Earth Day on Friday, this week is only 4 days long. Woohoo!

I had a good weekend. Friday I hung out with myself... I got dinner at the mall (for some reason the chinese place @ the mall sells bourbon chicken and it's so good), went to Borders where I ran into my cousin Susie and then I went to the movies. I saw Melinda and Melinda, Woody Allen's new movie, which was very good.

On Saturday, I slept in (until 3:00!). Then I talked to Deza and made some plans to go see her next week. (Yea! Road trip!) Saturday night I made myself some fusilli pasta (remember fusilli jerry? heh) and watched Spanglish. That movie was lacking something... like a good ending. I hate when I'm enjoying a movie and it all goes wrong at the very end. Also, I finished reading one book and started working on another. April is going to be a good book month what with vacation and all.

Anywho - yeah, weekend was nice but now it's Monday. And I have work to do...

Tuesday, April 12, 2005


I just became a charter subscriber to DOMINO, the new home shopping magazine from the publishers of Lucky. I love Lucky and am not sure why I don't also have a subscription to it. But Domino looks like it'll be 10x awesomer. Because it's all about home design which is something I might love more than fashion. Or equally as much anyway. Hee... I can't wait to get the first issue as I'm sure it'll give me a million zillion new ideas for my apartment. I already saw a great idea for my living room in the sneak preview...

Sleepy Me

You know what I find I need every Monday around 3:00? A fucking nap. Blah, I know why "they" say you should go to bed & wake up the same time everyday (including weekends) but I still think "they" are losers. I have a life. Even if that life only includes me reading & watching movies alone until 3am on the weekends.

Anyway... I bought a "new" couch this weekend (it's new to me). Finally. It's pretty comfortable but also a little allergy inducing. A little vacuuming/febreze should take care of that though. Oh, and it's huge. It seems to be a sectional missing it's corner piece which pushed together makes an 8 foot long couch. I wonder what happened to the corner piece. Tonight I have to rearrange the living room and figure out where to put everything. That's always fun.

Band of Brothers is on again this week and I'm frantically trying to clear my Replay to fit them. I'm not sure it'll all fit though. I might have to back some stuff up to my VCR but that would require me to use my VCR and who remembers how to do that.

Did I mention I need a nap?

The Circle of Life

Well, it's official... LOST actually killed off a character and left him dead. Poor Boone, it was sadder than I thought it would be. I'm wondering if he was just reincarnated right into Claire's baby... I guess we'll know the minute Shannon holds the baby. If it's Boone 2, he'll go right for her boobs. Ha! Sorry. Anywho - overall it was a really good episode, I liked the Jin & Charlie interactions. And I can't quite decide how I feel about Jack... some episodes he's great and others he's just annoying. He's certainly more tolerable than some other characters though.

Of course, with the season finale not until mid-May... Wednesdays will be LOST free for the next couple of weeks again. It'll be a long couple of weeks and, I suspect, an even longer summer. Good thing I will have the entire 1st season on my Replay TV. I can get my LOST fix anytime. Of course, first I need to delete some old stuff to make room for the last 3 episodes. Sorry Ally McBeal.

Pity the Press Rep

Yeah, so everyone and their mother knows that Brit-Brit & K-Fed are not going to last. But imagine you're employed by those two crazy kids and you have to give statements like this to the press (via Page Six):
A representative for Spears said: "Britney and Kevin were at the hotel to celebrate [sister] Jamie Lynn's birthday. An emergency meeting was called, but only because Britney was afraid her dog, Bit Bit, was pregnant by [brother] Brian's dog, Porkchop — and that would be incest. As for Britney and Kevin, they are still together, happy and gearing up to do press on the new show. There will be a magazine cover involved."
I think I'd be seriously reconsidering my career the moment I had to mutter anything about doggie incest. Meanwhile, this is going to be the best reality show ever.

Prince Rainier

When I get interested in a subject, I'll literally ingest all the media I can about it. And when I was a teenager, I bacame obsessed with Grace Kelly after finding a book about her at the library. So, I watched all her movies & every TV special I could find about her and I read a few books. And since the last half of her life was lived as HSH Princess Grace of Monaco, I learned a lot about Prince Rainier, too. And I always got the impression that Prince Rainier was a good guy. He just had the look of a guy who couldn't possibly be anything but nice... didn't he? He seemed to really love his children (and if you know anything about them...) and his country. And no matter what the state of his marriage was at the time Princess Grace died, there's no doubt that he was devastated by her death and that he loved her very much. Anyway, I feel sad for Monaco today...

You're All Doooomed!

It's been quite a few years since there was a huge TV mystery that's gotten as much attention as the LOST death. So, who's going to die? It sure looks like Boone but nothing is ever sure on LOST - except that they'll introduce 500 new mysteries per episode. I love reading other people's opins on who they think will die and why. It's like they're trying to logic out the FICTIONAL show.

People, it's fiction... created in somebody else's imagination. Or 10 other imaginations as is customary on a TV show. Plus, trying to logic out a J.J. Abrams show will likely give you an aneurysm. Didn't you ever watch Felicity people? There was nothing logical about that whole fucking time travel storyline. Or, really, anything about that whole damn show.

But still, it looks kinda fun so here's some of my own logic...

There's no way LOST is going to kill off Charlie. Again. He already died once this season and besides it wouldn't make sense. They just found all that heroin on Obi-Locke Kenobi's vision plane... who do you think going to ingest it all? The other heroin addict on Craphole Island? I mean... duh.

Test Pattern: Is Boone doomed?

Mild Monday

I was in complete denial that it was Monday this morning... but it is and now it's moving along. I was suppose to have a CE class tonight at UA but it was canceled due to low enrollment. That's the 2nd class I signed up for this year that was canceled. I'll try again in summer.

I watched Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle on Friday night and may I say... fucking. hilarious. I can't decide whether it'll hold up to a second viewing but I'm willing to bet it does. I'll test that theory very soon.

I'm trying to figure out how to get to Friday without spending any money... I (over) spent quite a bit in March and really have to watch out in April. Especially with a potential road-trip coming up. Of course, I've already spent $100 in my head after going to the bookstore on Saturday. Not that I need to add any more books to my current reading list. But I'm sure I'll justify that I need a fresh book or two for my vacation.

More Mitch Hedberg

I've found some great Mitch Hedberg material on other sites today and thought I'd share some of my favorites. Also, Comedy Central is showing his episode of Comedy Central Presents tonight at 9pm:
"I was at this casino minding my own business and this guy came up to me and said your gonna have to move you're blocking a fire exit. As if there were a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you are flammable and have legs you are never blocking a fire exit."

"I type 101 words a minute. But it's in my own language."

"Has anyone seen me on Lettermen? 2 billion people watch that show and I don't know where they are. You might have seen this next comedian on the Late Show, but I think more people have seen me at the store."

"The depressing thing about tennis is that no matter how much I play, I'll never be as good a a wall. I played a wall once. They're relentless."

"I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're going and hook up with them later."
There's more here: MITCH HEDBERG QUOTES

Evil Rebates

I just realized that I forget to send in the previously-mentioned rebate for LOTR: The Return of the King. Which, of course, had to be postmarked yesterday... Dammit Janet! They totally know you're gonna forget or not even bother and that's what makes them evil! That makes me 3 for 3 in not getting the LOTR rebates. At least there aren't any more of those movies to buy... until they make The Hobbit that is. They should really get on that.

But Then Gawker Said It For Me...

I know I said I didn't want to get into the whole Terry Schiavo thing but this is about what I was thinking:

CNN: A Longer Answer to a QuickVote

(I was just going to republish the Gawker post here but blogger no longer offers direct image hosting because they are trying really hard {and succeeding!} at pissing me off)

Mitch Hedberg

So yeah, Terry Schiavo died today. I'm sorry for her family but am hoping this story goes away in a day. I'm sickened by the continued abuse of her name & image for political gain. But I don't want to get into this because it's makes my head want to EXPLODE.

I'd rather take some time to remember Mitch Hedberg, an extremely talented comedian who died last night. Here's his Comedy Central bio. He was fucking hilarious and I always enjoyed when he was on Letterman & Comedy Central & Howard Stern. I have been trying to see him live for the last couple years but always managed to check his club dates the week after he was in NEO...

Mitch Hedberg Is Dead

The Chocolate MPire

OK, first off, blogger is a pain in the ass lately... but who cares because dark chocolate M&M's are making their debut this weekend. And there's a fun M&M/Star Wars trailer to announce it. As a Star Wars fan, I should maybe be appalled by this but there's so much more to dislike George Lucas for these days. And somehow, the fact that there are going to be dark chocolate M&M's in the world wins out. And also, M&M R2D2 is so f'in cute.

When Supermodels Attack!

I was so hoping this would happen... I saw a E! True Hollywood Story the other day about Janice Dickenson, "first" supermodel and ass-crazy judge on America's Next Top Model. And now Television without Pity has recapped it. Woo-hoo! Meanwhile, if you missed last night's episode (like I did), you can get your Janice quota & a (maybe) flesh-eating disease to boot when they rerun it on Friday.

Bewitched, Bewitched...

I just watched the trailer for Bewitched and I'm a bit confused. I thought it was going to be a movie based on the TV show... instead it's a movie about a movie based on the TV show. I can't decide how I feel about that. Still, it's got Will Ferrell in it and he looks hilarious as usual. Nicole Kidman looks better here than in The Stepford Wives except she needs to lay off the botox or eyebrow plucking or whatever is making her forehead look like that. Maybe I'll see it. Meanwhile, I know you've all been wondering what the words to the Bewitched theme song are, so here you go:

Bewitched, Bewitched,
You've got me in your spell.
Bewitched, Bewitched,
You know your craft so well.
Before I knew what I was doing,
I looked in your eyes.
That brand of woo you've been brewin',
Took me by surprise.

You witch, you witch,
One thing is for sure.
That stuff you pitch,
Just hasn't got a cure.
I never thought that I could be had,
But now I'm caught and I'm kinda glad to be Bewitched.

Wednesday, March 09, 2005


From here on Wednesday will be known as Project Wednesday in my world... this is the day (night actually) that I will be dedicating to my creative ventures. Arts, crafts, design... it's all fair game on Project Wednesday. Now tonight will probably just be kinda a lame PW because I need to gather all my supplies and decide where to start. But I'm hoping on getting some sketching practice in. I also want to create a list of all the projects I'd like to do... I bought a ton of practice fabric at Goodwill this weekend so there will definitely be some sewing projects soon.

In other news, I think I might be a mini geek because I just ordered the "premium" slipcase for the LOTR extended DVD editions... I didn't really think I'd like LOTR that much. But they're really good movies. Last week I watched the extended edition of Return of the King and didn't even realize that it was over 4 hours long. Weird. I have to remember to send in the rebate for Return of the King before the end of the month.

I need to clean my desk off, it's getting super dusty.

Starbucks has a new coffee liqueur that I will be trying soon (maybe even tonight)... I grabbed a mini bottle at the grocery the other day. The website wants to know: how will it inspire you? Well, Starbucks... my guess is it'll inspire me to drink more. Also: Please note: the caffeine in this liqueur does not counteract the effects of alcohol. Heh. I'm coveting the square martini glass featured in the mochatini recipe... pretty.

Dream Job

OK, maybe it's not my dream job but getting paid to watch The Dukes of Hazzard would still be dreamy... oh, until I got to the Coy & Vance season. But for $100,000 I'd suffer. And I'm gonna have to seriously consider going to Dukesfest 2005...

Best. Episode. Ever.

Last night's episode of Lost was my favorite since the Locke episode. I wonder how many people are going to play Hurley's numbers in the lottery this weekend... so many I'm sure. Now Lost is on hiatus for a month or so, so I'm free to watch America's Next Top Model on Wednesdays. Then it's all about who's gonna die on the season finale (of Lost not ANTM). The rumor is that it's one of the boys... I'd vote Boone or Walt off the island personally... just cause they annoy me. I'll be really pissed if it's Charlie, Locke, Hurley or Sayid. Any other character would only piss me off slightly.

The Benefits of The O.C.

I knew there must be some benefit to sticking with The O.C. during it's sophomore slump and now I've found it:

Star Wars trailer to premiere during OC

So far, this Star Wars movie is the only movie I'm really excited about seeing this year. Now, let's get back to The O.C.:

Note to writers... Mischa Barton still can't act and still isn't hot. This pseudo lesbian storyline you've got her in couldn't be less thrilling. Also, Ryan hasn't taken off his shirt all season... what gives? Thanks for getting rid of Lindsay, DJ & the crypt keeper, Kim Delaney. You can keep Zack & Alex. Also, more Julie. And maybe a little less meta... but I did love the Laguna Beach nod last week. Oh, and why don't these kids go to school anymore?

Project Jay

Woo-Hoo!!!! Jay won Project Runway! Jay won Project Runway!

In case you didn't know that I loved Project Runway from reading my old blog, you can read about here, here and here. I kinda thought I'd blogged about PR more than that but I guess not. Anyhoodle... I love Jay and his clothes. His collection was awesome... you can see it here:

Jay's Fashion Week Collection

This cool blue outfit is by far my favorite piece in the collection. I also love the black outfit, the gray outfit and this outfit w/the cool quilted jacket. Oh, but I really love something about every outfit because, Jay? He totally rocks. Here's his website - Jay McCarroll - where you can sign up for Jay updates.

And if you care, here are the links for the other two collections:

Wendy's Runway Show

Wendy's collections was definitely better then I was expected. I'll give her props for this totally hot retro look (so Tippi Hedren, don't you think?) and also this cool dress. There were also pieces I liked in her other outfits like this skirt and this jacket. But overall, I didn't think it was very original...

Kara Saun's Runway Show

Dear Kara Saun,

I used to love you so (way less than Jay, but still). Then you not only disappointed me with your collection but you cheated! And when that "hot bitch" Tim Gunn called you out, it suddenly seemed that all the talk of you being a shoo-in had gone to your head. And I kinda hated you. But even if you didn't impress me with this runway show, I have no doubt you'll be successful because I've seen enough to know you're super talented. And I really love this dress. Also... if your going to continue w/your aviatrix theme than I suggest more of this and less of this in the future. Thanks!


And that concludes this post.

Sleeping Pillow

Here's the pillow I need...

Sleeping Pillow - Double Chamber

Anyone got $100?

Long Live the Gucci Buddha

Alright kids... I was bored so I have switched to a new blog. Right now, my archives are still located at the old blog. But I hope in the near future to move my blog to a real url and bring all the archives with me. Anywho - on with the blogging.
