Dear Abby…You’re Gone and I’m Sad…

Dear Abby,

I read you died today.  You will be missed.  I hope those on the other side take some of your advice.

Signed,
Sorry You Died

I read the news today that Pauline Friedman Phillips died.  I was sad.  Many would know her by her more famous name…Abigail Van Buren (AKA Dear Abby).  She was 94 and suffered with Alzheimer’s Disease.

Growing up I always went to her column (or twin sister Ann Landers) first.  Even before reading the comics.  I love to see what was plaguing the masses and was always intrigued by her advice.  I didn’t always agree with it but I found it interesting.  I’ll never forget The Brady Bunch show’s homage to Dear Abby with the episode that featured “Dear Libby”.  So many years of advice, so many fond memories.

Ryan Gosling Revolts…News At Eleven Or Right Now

So y’all know how I loath the news…unless it’s happy of course.  Today there was a major crisis for Ryan Gosling hunky actor (or so I’m told) from the movie The Notebook.

This is Ryan...in case you've never heard of him.

This is Ryan…in case you’ve never heard of him.

The news has reported that he has worn the same sweater for 2 days in a week.  I know can you imagine wearing the same sweater more than once ever?  Seriously what was this ruffian thinking?  How could he actually go outside his home under these conditions?  But thankfully he apparently had another sweater to wear today and averted the same travesty that had affected him last week.

Thank Your Ryan Gosling for coming to your senses!  God Bless you!

p.s.  All of the above was sarcasm.  Shocking right?  I get that there are people whose job it is to track such lame details but instead of admonishing or trying to cause some sort of embarrassment to the actors you should be advocating their sense of personal style.  Just saying.

Santa’s Off Season Locale

There are several celebrities that live in my part of town.  We live around the corner from an Academy award nominee, a professional baseball player and a football player.

What I didn’t know was I lived in the same neighborhood as Santa Claus.

Really it’s true.  When I went to pick up my dry cleaning today as I watched the clothes spun around I saw it…spinning right by my face…Santa’s famous red suit.  Who knew that Santa off-seasoned in my town.  Good for him.  I guess it’s why he chose this town.  We leave our celebrities alone, lol.

I told the Dry Cleaner Lady to remind you I’ve been a very good girl this year.  Except that one time but it wasn’t really all my fault…only 97% my fault…love you Santa!

A Reality Check Might Be Nice

I’ve been working a lot this week and had family visiting so I haven’t had much time to blog.  But when I saw this picture I was moved by the Oh Dear Lord to blog about it.

I’m your #1 Fan and that Kristen is a Wench for cheating on you….I Love You Robert…I’m thinking she said this in her crazed, crying video as I did not actually watch this poor wretch blubber on about RPatz or whatever they call him.

So a 22 year screwed up and ruined her relationship with her boyfriend.  Everyone blames this 22-year-old Kristen Stewart for breaking Robert Pattinson’s heart and destroying that creepy couple’s marriage.  Hello it takes two to tango and I blame him more.  She’s 22 years old…who wasn’t stupid at 22.  He’s 41 and has a wife and kids…Mr. grow up already and realize you are just as culpable!

So on to the other item of this little tryst that broke up two couples.  The crazed adoring fans who want to gut poor Kristen like a fish for breaking Robbie’s heart.  The chick above went as far as to upload a diatribe about it on YouTube.  She cried like a baby.  You know like it was happening to people she actually knew on a first hand basis.  Nope she doesn’t.  I was a hard-core soap fan most of my life and let me tell you that no matter how crazy I sounded when I talked about soap characters (you know like they were actually real people) I always knew a) They AREN’T REAL PEOPLE and b) I knew the Soap Actors real name.  When I had several opportunities to meet said people I would call them Ms. Eakes (Aka Krystal Carey Chandler Martin).  I never wept for them or screamed at them.  They are real People no the parts they play.

Hey it’s KWAK

So I feel bad for Robert too but I won’t shed a tear because really I don’t care and I’m fairly certain he’d be thrilled to know that, lol.  GO TEAM EDWARD!!!

Happy St. Patty’s Day Ya’ll

Today I went in town with some friends and Bjorn.  It rained all day but it was as if  St. Patrick had talk with God and the rain stopped just long enough to get the parade in 🙂  Wahoo!!!

This was my first St. Patty’s parade and it was a lot of fun.  Good Company…happy Holiday and Bjorn.  I’m a very lucky 4th Generation Irish-American!!

Oh and Bjorn met a celebrity…


Until tomorrow…

Mooned For Breakfast

So this morning over breakfast and my computer I was surfing through my usual blog material when I was blinded by the sight of Kate Hudson’s butt!  So not cool before noon.  There should be warnings posted at the top of the post or something.  Seriously…what was she thinking.

Celebrities that complain about how they are depicted in the press should not have anything to say when they wear thong bikinis…okaaaay!

Last night was another chapter in insomnia but this time I just laid in bed hoping I would fall asleep.  It didn’t happen but I was left with lots of time to think. I discovered I’m no more brilliant at 3:22 am than I am at 3:22 pm.  Gosh that’s just sad, lol.
