90210 — BAG bags Fox

And he has made a comeback — he’s now on Desperate Housewives. I hope his character can last longer than Alfre’s did.

Girl walks into a bar

My friend Moira Muldoon has brought her awesome column from the streets of Austin to the streets of Dallas. 

I have had the pleasure of being part of the column. Here is her first one from the Belmont hotel. I am the friend in the story who talks about the reality TV show. 

Yeah, Moira!

Look what me and crew did!

The DFW area was named the largest growing city in U.S. It grew about 25% from April 1, 2000, to July 1, 2009. It is now estimated to be about 6.5 million people. 

Count me in as one of those people that moved here.

Take your obsession for Apple to the next level with Apple earrings. They could always make for a good Halloween costume.

Need an iPad case?

I love anything Star Wars, so seeing this makes me want to get an iPad (not that I really needed a reason to get one). I wonder if I would be brave enough to wear this around town.

In honor of BW and SNL

Talk-show host Craig Ferguson said it best “To say ‘I don’t like Betty White’ is kind of like declaring that you’re a member of al-Qaida.”

And he is right, Rose Nylund rocks and I have loved her since I saw her on GG when I was a little girl. 

But in honor of her finally make it to the SNL stage, here is a timeline of BW through the years.

Glee radio

Do you think it’s a little out of control? I haven’t quite decided because I still enjoy it a lot. 

My friend JL, one of the biggest Gleeks I know, sent this to me today.

Yes, that would be “Glee” radio. Enjoy! 

I am listening to “Push It.” With our without “Glee,” I love this song. Holla!

When I was young, I used to get annoyed that my mom was so camera-shy, but after seeing these, I am very thankful.

Costume Institute Gala

Monday was the Costume Institute Gala — which means fun fashion. And, of course, who rocked it? - J.LO. 

Here is a recap of the event, but check out the pics. 

J.lo

1. That’s not Stedman with Oprah. I love that Oscar de la Renta is the only man pictured. 

2. Donatella looks more horsey than SJP

3. Vera Farmiga - no!

4. Elizabeth Banks looks like she escaped from Miley Cyrus’ video

5. I am not sure if Kristen Stewart could look more uncomfortable in a dress. Why must we suffer through two more films with her

Man and cat

See, if we allow gay marriage then what will be next — a man will his cat?

I guess it’s true.

I can understand that Vincent Ferrari was upset that it took so long for him to cancel his AOL account, but really did the ‘Today’ show need to interview the guy and report on what happened to him. 

I think we all have been on the phone for more than 20 minutes while trying to cancel accounts, and we have patiently waited through it. 

I think it’s sad that the poor AOL representative was probably doing what he was instructed, which is to talk to the customer about his account usage and how he should not cancel his account. But now he has been fired. 

It’s also sad that this once instance is be trumped out as AOL having bad customer service. 

Yellow journalism should never be tolerated

I saw ‘The Cove’ in February in time for The Oscars, and I was floored by the documentary.

When I sat down to watch the movie, I didn’t fully realize what the documentary was discussing. I am glad it won The Oscars, because it deserved it. And we all need to help dolphins, and stop the slaughter of these innocent animals.

Universal Truths

UNIVERSAL TRUTHS
trust

1. I think part of a best friend’s job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.

3. I totally take back all those times I didn’t want to nap when I was younger.

4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

6. Was learning cursive really necessary?

7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on #5. I’m pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

9. I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t at least kind of tired.

10. Bad decisions make good stories.

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren’t going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don’t want to have to restart my collection…again.

13. I’m always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.

14. “Do not machine wash or tumble dry” means I will never wash this - ever.

15. I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello?!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voicemail. What did you do after I didn’t answer? Drop the phone and run away?

16. I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

17. I keep some people’s phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

18. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

19. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay.

20. I wish Google Maps had an “Avoid Ghetto” routing option.

21. Sometimes, I’ll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and suddenly realize I had no idea what the heck was going on when I first saw it.

22. I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

23. The only time I look forward to a red light is when I’m trying to finish a text.

24. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

25. How many times is it appropriate to say “What?” before you just nod and smile because you still didn’t hear or understand a word they said?

26. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent an ass from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!

27. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever..

28. Is it just me or do high school kids get dumber & dumber every year?

29. There’s no worse feeling than that millisecond you’re sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.

30. As a driver I hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian I hate drivers.

31. Sometimes I’ll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

32. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I’d bet my behind everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time!

Uma, Oprah .. have you met Keanu?

Every month, I try to win Oprah Winfrey tickets, and this month is no different, except that the show is not offering tickets this month because of the tight production schedule. 

But when I went to apply, I did see that they are offering last-minute tickets to their ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ taping. To apply you have to say why you should be in the audience.

Shoot - I just deleted what I wrote for my submission, but basically it said that though I enjoyed reading the book, I was annoyed by it’s message that when things get rough in your life, just take a three-country vacation and all will be OK. It’s sad to me that woman have been devouring this book and this message, but there is no way we can have these experiences. I would love a book where a woman goes through severe trials and tribulations and just deals with it while facing the real world. I have lost a job, a father, and a car in one year, and God, I would love to travel to Italy, Indonesian, or India to solve my problems.
