Rally to Restore Sanity

 Jon Stewart's rally, Rally to Restore Sanity, is October 30. This is probably a counter to the nut job tea baggers.

Speaking of nut jobs- that O'Donnell woman wonders if evolution is true, why don't monkeys turn into humans. She could be an elected official? People c'mon now!

That goes perfectly with Stephen Colbert's rally Keep Fear Alive.


Carson Kressley (blonde guy from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy) at Trader Joe's. We were both looking in the salad/sandwich section and I needed to get in front of him and he quietly said "excuse me". He looked focused, had on a crisp white shirt, and I didn't see him anywhere else in the store.

Luckily- he didn't critique what I was wearing.

Project Runway

I tell ya, every week the judges of Project Runway make me shake my head and say "wha?" I think their Botox is affecting their thinking...although last week I thought the right person won.

But what was with putting Gretchen's dress in the top 3? Looks like a bridesmaid dress at Stevie Nicks wedding in the 70's where blow was in the centerpieces.

Lifetime makes it tough to grab images, so it is too annoying to blog each week. But for this dress, I MADE IT WORK!

Now We're Talking!

Bon Jovi is nominated for induction into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.  Hopefully that means Rick Springfield isn't far behind!

The noms:
Beastie Boys, Neil Diamond, Alice Cooper, Bon Jovi, Donovan, Tom Waits, LL Cool J, Dr. John, the J. Geils Band, Darlene Love, Laura Nyro, Donna Summer, Joe Tex, and Chuck Willis. The Beastie Boys got a nod in 2008. Nyro, LL Cool J, and Summer were all nominated last year.

My pics would be
Bon Jovi -duh
Beasties -not sure they'll make it in, but it would be cool if they did
Neil Diamond -Metallica is in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame before this guy? C'mon.
Tom Waits -this has to be a for sure thing, everyone loves this guy and if you don't, whatever you do- don't tell anyone!
Laura Nyro -she has to get in over J. Geils!
Donna Summer -put on your rollerskates!

LL Cool J? I like Round the Way Girl, and Going Back to Cali like the next person, but Hall of Fame? And who are Joe Tex and Chuck Willis? I remember Darlene Love as Murtoch's wife in Lethal Weapon, but I know she sings a Christmas song on Letterman yearly (or she did for awhile). Donovan is the dippy hippie?

Don't Ask Don't Tell

From ABC News:
The effort to lift the military's ban on openly gay and lesbian service members had a major setback Tuesday when Senate Democrats failed to win the 60 votes needed to advance a defense bill that included conditional repeal of the Don't Ask Don't Tell law.

Now about Glee- not digging it so much.  I mean, the butch PE teacher whose last name is Beast? C'mon.

Health Insurance Reform

Health insurance changest that take affect today are here.

And Mr. Tan John Boehner isn't happy about it.

Why is he, and all the others so angry, against you not having a cap on treatment? against children not being denied coverage for pre-existing conditions? against you not being dropped by your insurance for any reason except fraud?


Only someone with a cold, black heart wouldn't think this is cute.

Do you know PostSecret? A website that posts postcards that are sent anonymously. It looks like now they only post on Sunday and for some reason don't show the archives.

Some make you tear up, some make you laugh out loud. The towing one in particular made me guffaw.

Speaking of Reality Shows

Anyone else notice the foreheads of those Project Runway judges? They don't move! And that includes Heidi (I am sure that is why she has that hair)

And Nina is 45! That can't be right. She has to be in her 50s.

And while we're talking Project Runway, read how nice Tim Gunn was to fans at one of his signings. Love him.

Survivor- Now You're Thinkin'!

Finally! One of the female "older" tribe members made fire with her glasses. She told Jeff she practiced for two months after hearing him say in an interview "why would you ever go on Survivor and not know how to make fire?" No sh*t.

And if you're going on the Amazing Race learn to rappel. And if you're going on Top Chef season your food (but not over salt). Project Runway- know how to make a straight hem. Let's learn from these shows being on so long.

But let's get to the real issue- the "older" tribe were people 40 and over. Oy.

And yes- I am still watching this show!


So...I'm at the bar of a nice restaurant in Santa Monica with a friend.

I didn't notice when a couple sat down at the table next to us, but at some point I look over and the guy had a pinkish red glow from a candle that made his face look odd.

So I stared at him and then thought "that guy is a weird looking Michael Keaton, there's something odd about his face...or is that the Michael Keaton?"

At this point I had stared too long, which I don't like to do (although Diane Keaton, Goldie Hawn and Rick Springfield would tell you different). I didn't want him to think I'm a stalker (I mean, he's no Clooney), and I really was staring because his face looked weird. Possible chemical peel.

When I looked over later, he had leaned or moved his stool so that the blonde he was with blocked my view with the back of her head. Ha!

Now I wouldn't have said anything to him, but if I would have said something should it have been:
-220, 221 whatever it takes (Mr. Mom)
-we're loooove doctors (Night Shift)
-Beatlejuice, Beatlejuice, Beatlejuice (well, Beatlejuice)
-I can't believe your Batman was more successful than Clooney's

Remembering GE

Today is GE's birthday. She was someone I could always call and vent, get advice from and laugh with over how stupid people are.

I can't even tell you how much, during a busy time at work I said "in through the nose, out through the mouth". And no, that wasn't after a bong hit. It's a way of breathing that helps calm you, that GE taught me.

Join me- in through the nose (that's for you to breath in) and out through the mouth (and out cha go). Ahhh...so relaxed...

Miss you GE.
