Blog Status

HP, after many calls, finally mentioned something about my motherboard being recalled. So, I am mailing in my computer for them to fix. Hopefully I will get it back quickly and can be consistent in my blog posts. Hang in there!

Is it Election Time Yet?

Oy, this is a long election season.

The media is spinning Obama's "bitter" comments like crazy while people in those areas (that he was referring to) are not as offended as the press would like you to think. More here

I'm ready to vote now.

Finally- Survivor Was Interesting


Snow, Sun, Your Typical Weather

Seattle has been having some crazy weather. Snow off and on for a few days. Also some sun. At one point there was sun and snow at the same time.

Did McCain Call His Wife a C***?

Classy guy, that McCain:

Three reporters from Arizona, on the condition of anonymity, also let me in on another incident involving McCain's intemperateness. In his 1992 Senate bid, McCain was joined on the campaign trail by his wife, Cindy, as well as campaign aide Doug Cole and consultant Wes Gullett. At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain's hair and said, "You're getting a little thin up there." McCain's face reddened, and he responded, "At least I don't plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you c***." McCain's excuse was that it had been a long day. If elected president of the United States, McCain would have many long days.


Don't Bring Back Jackie!

Howard Stern sidekick Artie Lange left the show on Thursday after feuding with his assistant.

Artie has gained a lot of weight recently, so hopefully he will get help for whatever is really bothering him.

And don't bring back that annoying Jackie. He is not funny.

The Penns Back Together?

Did Sean realize no one else would put up with his crap but his wife?

Oscar-winning hothead and lefty political activist Sean Penn and his wife, actress Robin Wright Penn, have withdrawn the divorce petition they filed in December.

The divorce proceedings had some zigs and zags. Sean originally filed divorce papers in Marin County December 7. That the petition was dismissed December 18. Wright Penn followed up with the papers on the 21st. That's the case that was dismissed this week. It came a day after they attended an Eddie Vedder concert at the University of California, Berkeley, where Penn reportedly went on stage to dedicate a song to his wife for her birthday.

They have two children; daughter Dylan Frances, 17, and son Hopper Jack, 14.


Nina Garcia Out at Elle

Nina Garcia, the Project Runway judge who is never pleased with much of what the designers create, is no longer working at Elle. Wonder if this means she won't be on Project Runway.

Speculation about Garcia's departure has swirled for months, especially after the arrival of Joe Zee at the beginning of 2007 as creative director. Last spring, Garcia left the magazine on maternity leave, and began writing a monthly fashion column for Elle upon her return. Garcia was in the office on Friday morning, but by the afternoon, sources close to the building say Hachette’s Midtown offices were abuzz about the rumor.


Scary Hatcher on American Idol

I haven't been watching American Idol this season, but I did hear that Scary Hatcher sang on the Idol Gives Back show.

New Madonna Song in Sunsilk Commercial

What do we think of Madonna being in a commercial for a product there is no way she uses?

Free Coffee at Starbucks Tomorrow

In a bid to reinvigorate lackluster U.S. traffic, Starbucks Corp will introduce a new, everyday brew called Pike Place Roast on Tuesday and for 30 minutes will hand out free 8-ounce (240 ml) samples.

Free cups of the new coffee, which the company said has a smoother flavor and finish, will be available starting at 9 a.m. on the West Coast and noon on the East Coast at all its roughly 7,100 company-operated U.S. stores.

Traffic in U.S. Starbucks stores has slowed in recent months amid a broader economic downturn and stiffer competition from companies such as McDonald's Corp, which is aggressively targeting the specialty-brewed coffee market that Starbucks helped establish.

Uh, Starbucks- I can tell you why sales are "lackluster". $4 for an iced mocha (ok, it's $3.70 but you throw the extra .30 in the tip jar). Take a page from Mr. Mom, reduce prices while we are in a recession (remember the tuna commercial Teri Garr's character worked on?). That's how you'll win over consumers. Put Mr. Mom on your NetFlix, have a few laughs (who doesn't love early Michael Keaton?) and learn something!

Dang I love that movie.

Project Runway Walks Over to Lifetime

Looks like someone at Bravo ticked off the Weinsteins.

NBC Universal and its Bravo cable network will lose the popular television reality show "Project Runway" as the show unveiled plans on Monday to jump to rival cable network Lifetime Television.

NBC Universal filed suit on Monday in New York State Supreme Court against the show's producer, The Weinstein Co, claiming that the network and Bravo had the right of first refusal for future cycles of the show and any spinoffs.

"Project Runway" will move to Lifetime for its sixth season beginning in November as part of a five-year deal, the network and The Weinstein Co said.

In the lawsuit, NBC claimed it has been negotiating with Weinstein for more than a year to gain exclusive rights to broadcast subsequent cycles of the program, but that Weinstein threatened to take the show to another network unless NBC agreed
to acquire a package of unrelated Weinstein films for "many millions of additional dollars."

Rock of Love Rules

-If someone doesn't drink, don't assume it's because they are diabetic, because if they say "no, liver cancer" you'll feel even dumber than if they had said "recovering alcoholic" (if someone didn't drink, I wouldn't think diabetic...especially since diabetic Bret drinks like crazy)

-Never get a tattoo for Bret. Doesn't improve your chances of being picked. Especially if you can't commit to one that says his name, or the name of his show. (How many times did Bret comment on Destiney not getting his name?)

-Even if saying you love Bret is as fake as your breasts, it is the best way to progress in the show. Why a woman who stripper dances in front of her parents (while watching the Poison concert video) would not pretend she is in love with Bret like the other 2 women, I don't know.

Oprah Dog Episode is a Teary One

I taped it, but haven't yet watched Oprah's show on puppy mills and shelters that euthanize dogs. I saw the last part of the Sophie video tribute and Oprah was crying and had to go to commercial. Some thought it was a bit much, but I think it was a sincere reaction. I bawled at My Dog Skip! OMG, I'm almost tearing up just typing the words My Dog Skip.

I thought it was great that Oprah saw the billboard (a guy rented a billboard and asked her to do a show on puppy mills) and did a show on the horrors of puppy mills. Churning out puppies and euthanizing older dogs is just inhumane.

You go Oprah and your doggone crazy doggie ways.

Priscilla Presley Admits Face Work

It would be hard for PP not to admit some work, now that she is seen weekly on Dancing With the Stars (if she's still on it...I don't know who got voted off). She apparently is a victim (along with Larry King's wife) of a doctor who used low-grade botox or silicone or something. I would say PP has had more than an injection.

Ok, So They Are Reuniting?

They were, then they weren't. Now the New Kids, or NKOTB as they wanted to be called at one time, are reuniting. I thought one of them couldn't leave his house without having a panic attack? Remember, he was on Oprah. I guess $$$ can get you out of the house. Or he had therapy.
