In other news, this AM on Ellen she was talking about chi chi cocktail parties and how the food's getting fabber and fabber. She launched into how Carpaccio is the new chic and how it is so thinly sliced you can "lick tuna and be full"...I shit you not! Quite possibly one of THE funniest Freudian slips I have heard in a while!

"I'm Very Ain-gree" *

*Name that movie (answer in the Comments)

I climbed into my nice warm bed on loser Friday night last week to watch whatever was on the three channels I get in my cable-devoid room. And what do I see during the commercials but an ad for Letterman: AMY SEDARIS WAS ON! Excited=me, yipee! I make it through the 10P lameness, half of the news, and then I start fading. STAY AWAKE damn it, this may be the BEST interview of the year. And wouldn't ya know, I had the GD remote on sleep and that's where I fell...into a little REM and woke up at 2 AM cursing myself, GRR!

At least Lindsay saw it and recapped....

I'm Quasi Famous

I got a shout out on Zulkey (9th one down)!! Thanks!

File under WTF?!?!?!
John Mayer and Lizzy Grubman???!?!?!? I'm a few days late, but this is still gross!
I used to dream about him, all cute with lyrics to make me swoon. Then he got famous and sold out and makes me ill. And words can't describe her, well, maybe social mountaineer can.

"Counting the Cars on the New Jersey Turnpike..."

Mood: B+
Song: America-Paul Simon
Happy Birthday: George Foreman

Went to the Red Sox/Jimmy Fund "Hot Stove Cool Music" pre-show Fundraiser on Saturday night at the Paradise. (Actual show was Sunday night). Who knew pitcher Bronson Arroyo had a dead ringer voice for Eddie Vedder, he rocked out on "I'm Still Alive". Hopefully it will be on the CD once released later this month.

And all things Jen and Brad....c'mon, are we REALLY that surprised? As far as I can remember NO couple of this magnitude has been able to keep it together. Someone likened them to Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson's enduring relationship and I heartily disagree. Rita is great, but she's no Jennifer Aniston. In my opinion, these two can't be far behind...rumor has it it will happen once Season 3 of Newlyweds is kaput.

If they can't make it, then WHO can....SOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I said I wanted to BE like a dude, not PEE like one!

Oy, this is truly gross. (via Lindsayism)

I doubt I could aim very well, though I'll bet I would make less of a mess than most dudes who've been trained to aim since they were 2-ish!


At least the she-beast brings us humor...(via Wonkette, 4th item)

Come January we're frozen in time making new resolutions a hundred times

Happy New Year for the umpteenth time to all:)

Did everyone behave themselves Friday night? I hope not;) Let's just say I had enough fun (ie booze) to last my liver WELL into Q2 of '05 so I am on the wagon for the time being. I was gonna try for a month but I KNOW that won't happen as I am going to NEED a drink after the exam on 1/22. And there's this party next weekend too...sigh....2 weeks, 2 weeks I can do.

I am pretty much booze, no shopping, no food and LOTS of gym time. Good old January, gotta love it. Although it IS one of my two favourite months (August is the other) because I ADORE a crisp on the verge of bitterly cold day when the sun is shining something fierce. Unforch, January '05 in Boston has ONLY brought 40+ degree weather and RAIN thus far, here's hoping for one or two crisp days over the next 26 pretty please!

I think this is a worthy $200 investment!
