I Want To Eat Eight Apples And Bananas!

After you read this, I’m sure you’ll agree that the expression “going bananas” comes from the effects bananas have on the brain. Bananas contain three natural sugars – sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. A banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy.…

Anna Nicole Smith Has Been Laid To Rest…

…but certainly not in peace. The Comfort and Sweetness of Peace After the clouds, the sunshine, after the winter, the spring, after the shower, the rainbow, for life is a changeable thing.

Matthew McConaughey!! Hip, Hip, Hooray!

Matthew McConaughey is my husband. He just doesn’t know it yet. My friends and family know it, or at least they are kind enough to indulge my fantasy, and are always on the look out for him. It’s so nice when loved ones enable harmless delusions*.…

February Has 28 Days. Do You Know Why?

February is a tag-on month. It didn’t even exist when the Romans first started what would become our calendar. The goal was to merge the moon’s 29 ½ day month with the sun’s 365 ¼ day year. The first attempt was made by Romulus, Rome’s founder, who included 10 months, …

2007 Academy Awards – Quick Round Up

In the Awards family, the Oscars are the stuffy aunt whose opinion the family respects and around whom the family is on their best behavior. Everyone wears their best (or so they think) and they are polite and smile and thank everyone under the sun and lose with grace.…

Britney Spears Has Lost Her Friggin Mind!

Okay, I don’t really want to kick someone when they’re down, but……OH MY GOODNESS BRITNEY SPEARS! What the heck kind of crazy colors is she seeing in her world? I actually had a conversation with my mom last night about the chaos that is Britney Spears.…

Motivational Words From Jewel Diamond Taylor

Below is a Motivation Note from Motivational Speaker and Author, Jewel Diamond Taylor. I have no idea who gave it to me. The message really hit home for me, and I think it needs to be shared and passed on. Especially to Britney Spears, whose recent behavior is obviously an …

Celebrity Baby Pictures

Below you will find some celebrity baby pictures. Can you guess who they are? Some of the pictured celebrities aren’t really “babies”, but they’re still little and cute. The answers are below the group of celebrity baby pictures; they’re upside down, so you’ll have to tweek your head to read …

49th Annual Grammy Awards — Performances

The Grammys opened with the much anticipated reunion of The Police. It totally rocked! They started with Roxanne, which Sting does not really perform anymore because he can no longer hit the high notes like they should be hit. For the Grammys, he changed the melody of the song a …

The biggest winners of the night were The Dixie Chicks, taking home 5 Grammys, and Mary J. Blige with 3 wins. It was also a big night for Lifetime Achievement recognitions. Those honored were: Booker T & the MGs (the first bi-racial house band), The Doors, The Grateful Dead, Maria …

What ARE They Wearing? — Grammys Edition

As with other award shows, there are always some questionable fashion choices. Here are some of the outfits that made me wonder more than the others. Fun facts about the Grammys: Originally known as the Gramophone Awards, the name soon became Grammys; the Grammy itself is a golden gramophone.…

Wise Words From Erma Bombeck

Anna Nicole Smith died yesterday at the young age of 39. I dedicate this post to her. Before her death in 1996, American humorist Erma Bombeck made a list entitled If I Had My Life To Live Over. My mother mailed me a copy a few years ago and I …

R.I.P. Anna Nicole Smith (1967-2007)

Anna Nicole Smith is dead! Holy crap! Can it really be? The world will never be the same. Perhaps I’ve watched too many Soap Operas over the years, or maybe I’m just oddly overly creative, but I’m guessing there’s more to this than we think.…

Shrek The Third Movie Trailer

So I’m watching American Idol — the best of the worst episode — and just saw an ad for the new Shrek movie, Shrek The Third. It looks pretty funny. Donkey and his dragon wife have flying donkey babies. And Puss is along for the ride too.…

Super Bowl XLI Commercial Round-Up

I realize it’s two days after the Super Bowl, but I was really busy yesterday. Please don’t hold it against me. I don’t know about you, but I thought the commercials were pretty darn boring this year. Aside from the Kevin Federline one, of course.…

Prince’s Purple Rain Super Bowl

The game isn’t over. As of now, it’s 29 – 17, Colts leading, with just over 5 minutes remaining in the 4th quarter. The commercials this year didn’t impress me much. I’ll write about those later. Here are some pictures of Prince during the Pepsi halftime show.…

“Super Tonio” Is A Super Big Baby!

Antonio Vasconcelos weighs 14.5 pounds and drinks 5 ounces of milk every three hours. But here’s the catch…Antonio is a newborn – a newborn human. Born this past Monday in Cancun, Mexico to parents Teresa Alejandra Cruz, 23, and Luis Vasconcelos, 38, “Super Tonio” was born by Cesarean section (thank …

Michael Jackson’s Kids — Unmasked!!

Usually when Michael Jackson’s three children go out in public, their faces are covered. But not in Las Vegas yesterday! First up: Prince Michael (the first) and Paris; their mother is Michael Jackson’s ex-wife Debbie Rowe. Man, I wonder what’s going through her mind these days.…

Super Bowl Commercials

Super Bowl XLI is this coming Sunday, February 4th, 2007. I don’t care about the game. I don’t know anything about the teams that are in it (the Colts and the Bears). But I enjoy the commercials, and am really looking forward to them this year.…

The Police Will Reunite For The 2007 Grammy Awards

I’m so excited about this bit of news. The Recording Academy has announced that The Police will perform together at the Grammys this year – 23 years after breaking up due to conflict within the band. Best known for hits like “Roxanne” and “Every Breath You Take,” The Police are …

2007 Screen Actors Guild Awards

Last night was the 13th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. Nothing too exciting this year; in fact, I found the end to be fairly anti-climatic with Annette Benning simply saying, “Goodnight.” The two things that made my jaw drop the most were when Eddie Murphy thanked Tracey Edmonds for, “making …

NPR Oscar Speech Contest

UPDATE: Winning speeches were selected on February 22, 2007. …so many worthy entries that picking just one winner seemed as churlish as Judi Dench’s role in Notes on a Scandal. So the staff at NPR.org picked five winners, along with a few runners-up, and recorded them reading their entries.…

2007 Oscar Nominations

The nominations are in. Here is a short list of the “big ones”. Noticeably absent from Best Picture is Dreamgirls, which many “in the know” thought would be nominated for sure. Looks like they’re not as “in” as they thought.…

Attention! New Traffic Laws!

These may be valid only in California, but I thought they were worth sharing anyway. I don’t know why new traffic laws aren’t advertised more, but they’re not. Probably so the government can make more money on tickets. But that’s just my theory.…
