Woman Crush

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

Why is it that, in the parlance of our times, when an otherwise-hetero man has a great liking/admiration/fondness for an attractive male celebrity they call it a “Man Crush”….but when an otherwise-hetero woman feels the same for a female celebrity they call it a “Girl Crush”?  WTF is up with that?  I personally am not […]

Oh, btw…

I think I neglected to mention that my FiL finally was sent home from the hospital on Friday.  Sweet E have mercy, I thought it would never end!  I don’t know what to do without the sound of our phones ringing 27 times a day. 

All the newbies that fit

Monday, July 28th, 2008

Last week I was seized with an urge to waste my time and energy on making some new header images for the ol’ blogstead.  You may have noticed them already, if not, refresh your browser and see if you can spot the newbies! (Or for the lazy/impatient, I’ve made up a cheat sheet.)

Drive-by Hurting

Friday, July 25th, 2008

I’ve already blown four days on Dark Knight/Heath related gibber-gabber, why not make it a full week? I was looking for something else entirely on YouTube, but I came across this.  Misery loves company, enjoy…

Beautiful Freak

Thursday, July 24th, 2008

Isn’t it rich?  Isn’t it rare? Me by myself on the ground, you in mid-air. Send in the clowns, there ought to be clowns… Don’t bother, they’re here! So, anyway.  Back to the Bat-babble, All-Joker Edition. •   It was very strange knowing that this was ‘Heath’s Last Role’ when it really didn’t seem like […]

Holy domestic, Batman!

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008

OMG, did you guys hear the news about Christian Bale? Batman actor Christian Bale released after assault allegation arrest Batman actor Christian Bale has been released on police bail after being questioned for four hours over allegations of assaulting his mother and his sister at a London hotel. Sources said that Bale was accused of […]

And here…we…Go!

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2008

I’m guessing that you all expect some big long-winded review of TDK out of me.  Well, I really don’t think that I can do it.  There is TOO much to talk about; the post would be so long that not a one of ya’d read it; I could literally talk about that movie all week.  […]

Prepare to be PWNED!

Friday, July 18th, 2008

At long last, today’s the day.  Can’t believe that my most-anticipated film of the year is a Bat-pic.  But it’s all due to one man: Hope I don’t star blubbering the minute Heath appears on screen and 1. embarrass myself and 2. miss anything in the movie.  But we have plans to see it twice […]

Black and white and purty all over

Thursday, July 17th, 2008

Cousin R’s wedding date is fast approaching!  Her color scheme is black and white, so a long time ago I (rather foolishly) volunteered to make some decorated Oreos for the reception.  (I say foolishly because every time in the past that I’ve tried to work with melting white chocolate has ended in tears.) But a […]

For Unlawful Criminal…Hotness

Tuesday, July 15th, 2008

If you read my mid-summer Celebrity Crush update, you’ll recall that poor Josh Brolin had taken a nosedive thanks to my glimpse of a photo of him made up to look like George W. for Oliver Stone’s “W” movie. Well, just like the stock market, these sudden shifts tend to self-correct over time.  I’m happy […]

More Gossip Grooves

Monday, July 14th, 2008

Since I don’t have time to post any real content today, here’s another song that I picked up from watching Gossip Girl.  It’s ‘Someone Great’, by a band called LCD Soundsystem.  I’m SO in love with this song, you can probably guess why — because it sounds like some previously-undiscovered 1980′s techno-pop that an archaeologist […]

Gossip Grooves

Friday, July 11th, 2008

Time to admit: BW downloaded the entire first season of Gossip Girl, and I’ve been watching it compulsively. But I’m not ashamed! Though it’s hardly what I’d call “good” or “well-written”, it’s very watchable and compared to everything else on TV these days it’s like Shakespeare. I actually love soaps, but NBC canceled all my […]

Don Johnson, lab rat

Wednesday, July 9th, 2008

I love it when science validates my personal preferences, don’t you? Women prefer men with stubble for love, sex and marriage Stubble is the way to win a woman’s heart, a study has shown. Researchers found that women are more attracted to men with stubbly chins than those with clean-shaven faces or full beards. Women […]

Not quite

Monday, July 7th, 2008

the relaxing weekend I’d had in mind, but it wasn’t THAT bad. Got some stuff done, bought some books.  Did not get out to see Wall-E after all.  I still kind of want to but I am being kept at bay by the terror of a sproggen-filled theater.   And I have an odd psychological […]

Blowed’ up real good

Thursday, July 3rd, 2008

My mom is on her way down to spend the weekend, so I’ll be off to shop and whatever for the next few days.  BW’s brother will be coming up to hopefully give BW some slack on the hospital-visiting duties;  I hope we can get in some relaxing and try to see Wall-E this weekend. […]

More “News Of the Obvious”

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2008

Somebody gets paid to “discover” these “findings”??  Sheesh. The most recent comprehensive study on the emotional state of those with kids shows us that the term “bundle of joy” may not be the most accurate way to describe our offspring. “Parents experience lower levels of emotional well-being, less frequent positive emotions and more frequent negative […]

Happy Canada Day!

Today we take time to celebrate one of the world’s finest nations! Of thee we sing….and eat the Tim Horton’s maple-glazed donuts! Long live the northland!
