Take My House, Please

Monday, February 27th, 2006

Well, it’s official. If anybody reading this in the Pgh area knows anyone at all who is in the market for a nice, clean, reasonably-priced house, please send them my way. We are more than willing to cut deals for friends, friends-of-friends, relatives-of-friends, whatever. I’m serious. Charming neighbor lad thrown in at No Extra […]

Fear This

Friday, February 24th, 2006

*psst* Let me let you in on a secret… You all know what a Miami Vice fangirl I am. But my favorite character from the series is not that super-hottie Crockett. It’s not Tubbs, even though he’s so cheesily awful he’s great. It’s not even the Ferrari Daytona Spider from the first two seasons. It’s […]

Gulli Buddy!

Thursday, February 23rd, 2006

Shhh! It’s someone’s birthday! Our little friend Gulliver is 9 years old! Actually, his birthday was yesterday. But he’s just a little cat and doesn’t know his days of the week very well, so he doesn’t mind. Catnip and treats for all!

Bourbon n’ Branch

Nobody but me gives a damn, but whooo-hooo, Season 4 of Dallas is out on DVD! Of course, I put it right up at the top of my Netflix queue soon as I found out. I love me my Ewings! Season four is an action-packed season of discovery. I’ve only watched 9 episodes so far, […]

Orgasm in a Jar

Tuesday, February 21st, 2006

Mexican food Chef Rick Bayless is my favorite “celebrity chef.” I’ve never seen his show, but his food kicks ass. I LOVE the whole line of Frontera mexican product goodness! (And I even have his Mexican Everyday cookbook on my Amazon Wishlist. *ahem*) Anyway, the Frontera line is all awesome. There’s nothing you can buy […]

First off, I want to give a birthday shout out to my bro, Whistler! Go and give him a pinch to grow an inch! It was one of those kinds of weekends, just running around, being busy. Saturday we had to do all of our chores, because Sunday we went to Hometown Hellhole. Got there […]

I Wish I Knew How to Quit…drinking this cappuccino! It’s fabulous!

Friday, February 17th, 2006

Now of all the really stupid BBM parodies, jokes, and rip-offs flooding the ol’ interweb these days, THIS ONE is the truly funniest, IMO. It’s BBM humor and foodie humor all at once, can’t beat that! (And on a personal note, it’s disturbing how many of the things on this list I’ve bought. *gasp* I’m […]

Who’s Your Daddy?

Thursday, February 16th, 2006

It’s that time again, time when we give mad birthday props to Mr. Hugh Beaumont! This man is so cool, he was featured on an episode of MST3K as one of the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse! You know him as the Wardster, and sure, who wouldn’t want Hugh as their idealized tv husband or […]

You Are What You…Moisturize With?

Wednesday, February 15th, 2006

I just noticed that every bath product I own is food-oriented, food-flavored, food-scented, or all of the above. It’s getting kind of weird. In my bathroom right now I have: Origins Cocoa Therapy Body Scrub Origins Cocoa Therapy Soap Origins Cocoa Therapy Body Butter (all of the above made with cocoa butter, ground up cocoa […]

..I wish that I was like Whistler or Kirkkitsch and carried a digital camera around everyplace I go. Then I would have a picture to prove to you what I saw flashing by on the electronic billboard outside of the Monroeville Maul. “GET YOUR SUPERBOWEL SHIRTS AT DICK’S” I’m so not making that up.

A Mixed Bag

Monday, February 13th, 2006

That was our weekend. Saturday was pretty nice. We went to Christos downtown, one of my favorite Greek places that I really don’t get to nearly enough. *insert obligatory drooling* Followed up with a movie/concert across the street at the Byham. The whole “silent movie accompanied by live musicians” thing must really be catching on. […]

Jimmy Smits?

Barnes & Ignoble

Thursday, February 9th, 2006

I used to love bookstores, but anymore I just dread setting foot into one. I just know that I will come out frustrated and disappointed. Is it just me, or do they simply NOT stock ANYTHING that ANYONE, let alone me, would want to read? I can’t count the times over the past 2 or […]

May I Have the Envelope, Please?

Wednesday, February 8th, 2006

Ladies and gentlemen, beating out those other awards shows by almost a month, we welcome you to The First (Annual?) Tarsier Awards! These prestigious awards recognize the most noteworthy of the year’s movies, and are affectionately known as ‘the Martys’, in honor of film comedian and tarsier look-alike Mr. Marty Feldman. The Martys are different […]

Drive-By Cooling

Donald Sutherland is Cooler Than Thou. Always has been. Always will be. Just live with it.

Thank you, Coach Cowher!

Monday, February 6th, 2006

O happy day! I got out of bed this morning to find that Crack Monkey had moved, my property taxes were cut by 60%, and tha Hood has disappeared!! Overnight it was replaced by a thriving neighborhood, full of affordable, quality housing and locally-owned shops! Not only that, but Rick Santorum has voluntarily resigned his […]

Fear and Loathing in Pittsburgh

Friday, February 3rd, 2006

ROETHLISBERGER SUCKS ASS! I just felt like saying that. I was thinking about making up a sign and hanging it out front, but I don’t have a good place to hang it from, and my street doesn’t get quite enough traffic. Yes, for those few readers out there who do not live in the greater […]

Oscar + Ennis + Jack = TLA

Thursday, February 2nd, 2006

Well, well, well! The Oscar noms were announced on Tuesday, and it looks like a big sweep for BBM! It was nominated in every major category that it deserved. Even Michelle Williams got a nom which I think is great. Congrats to Ang and the Boys! I hope you kick some Spielbergian ass come March […]

Let Us Praise Him With Great Praise!

Happy Birthday Mr. Gable! Though the decades may pass as they will, you are still the unconquered King of Hollywood. On a related note, while you are pondering the Glory of Clark, you may want to visit this incredible new site that Marci found for me. It’s called Greenbriar Picture Shows, and it’s totally enthralling! […]
