A feature you can all “look forward to” (wink-wink) on the weeks when I post on Fridays is my penchant for goofy reality shows and celebrity gossip, but since I’ll also be giving things away, this seems like a good time to indulge my classless idiocy.
I was talking to a friend, who shall remain nameless, recently, and we both go out on Fridays (for me, sometimes Sat or Sun) and pick up the trashy celebrity gossip magazines like People and Us. I lurve them, I really do. Then I spend the weekend, or at least a couple of hours of it, flipping through them and indulging in one of my favorite guilty pleasures. The best weeks are when “In Style” comes out. Anyway, go see Gallery of the Absurd, if you don’t already visit it, for some of the funniest celebrity cartoon art around, like the cartoon on the left of Tom-Rat. So the baby has arrived, and coincidentally at almost the same time as Brooke Shield’s baby. Coinkydink? I don’t think so. It’s some evil L. Ron Hubbard plot to something something Xenu something. I’ll fill in the blanks later. But did you see that the name of the baby, Suri, doesn’t mean what they said it meant, Princess? It apparently means pointy nose pickpocket. Suri is seriously going to be pissed one day about that, among lots of other things.
And who will get that part in the Dallas move, Lindsey or Jessica? I have no idea why Lindsey would want it, that’s not a part with a future. She laments that she doesn’t get the Scarlett Johannson roles, then fights for crap roles?
A new book that I heard about at Beauty Addict (not sure about this one, sorry if I heard aboutit somewhere else and you didn’t get credit) — Free Gift with Purchase – my Improbable Career in Magazines and Makeup by Jean Godfrey-June should be here tomorrow, wheee!!! I also bought this book, Virgin of Small Plains by Nancy Pickard because it sounds kinda interesting and because it’s set in Kansas. (Oddly enough, I’ve never read In Cold Blood. It’s sent in Kansas too, but I just can’t do it.) It shows up tomorrow too. Now, if I could only concentrate for more than 35 seconds so I could read just one book. If only I had longer arms so i could see those books without the 30 pairs of reading glasses we have laying around the house. I used to read a book every couple of days, but my mind and eyes are shot, and now the only time I manage to read anything is when I go on vacation on a beach somewhere, and usually I’m drinking too much on vacation and can’t remember what I read.
American Idol — Did the bottom three this week surprise anyone? Two yawners and a tart are safe, and, well, Taylor. Now, sending home Ace was okay, though I will miss me some Eye Candy, and Paris needs to just be herself, but Chris?!?!?!? You can always catch recaps of all trash reality TV at TVGasm. I haven’t had to watch America’s Next Top Model yet this Cycle, thanks to them. But I watched it last night, and I don’t remember why I ever watched that show, and I won’t do that again — well, until the next time I forget that I really hate that show.
For those of you that are Catholic, remember that this Sunday is Divine Mercy Sunday, my favorite day of the year! If you aren’t Catholic or religious at all, just skip this paragraph. If you have not done confession yet, it’s not too late to get your No Purgatory for the Crap I’ve Done So Far Ticket punched by Jesus. For those of you that think I make light of this, I’m not! Good grief, I’m a horrible person most of the time, I need all the help I can get, and aiming at and hitting this little window is harder than you think, I’ve missed it three years in a row. It is a good thing I’ve stayed healthy. Now I can go back to drinking and sloughing off on the health stuff for a while. This is the end of my Sinful Catholic PSA.
Perfume — oh, yeah, this is a Perfume Blog. Sorry about that! So I couldn’t just pick one winner, I had too many entries, so I pulled out three:
Flora, Rachael and Dusan
Send me your snail mail address by hitting the Contact Us Button, and I’ll jet you off the two Malle samples you picked, plus other goodies. Thanks so much to all of you for your comments and for reading what we write. The comments are the most fun thing of writing, hearing what you think and learning something new.
Now, time to…Trash the comments.
Comment on whatever you want, celebrity gossip, Brangelina having a baby in Namibia, is Brad really about fed up with her yet, reality TV, whatever occurs to you that is the opposite of high brow and erudite.
I’m off to get my hair cut and
highlighted — shinified. Have a great weekend, everyone!!!
