So What?

Yeah, I'm watching Twilight again. Yeah, this is the fourth time this week. What are you gonna do about it? Judge me? Judge away. What else do you expect me to do on another Forks day? I tried to wean myself from the Blu-Ray with re-reading "New Moon," but I find myself losing patience with Bella, just as I did the first time I read it. So I turn to the flick...again.

P.S. I know I should be watching NCAA basketball, but I don't want to watch UCONN win. Stupid Huskies who pay players to come to them.

If her thighs look cottagey through the layers of awesome Hammer fabric, I don't even want to know what mine would look like.

Thanks, Yahoo!, for embarrassing another celebrity walking through the airport.

Not Fair

So my brother-in-law, who apparently knows people, gets to go to the Glasgow Doctor Who exhibition three days before it opens today, and where do we get to go tonight? Prepared Childbirth Class, with the world's most boring instructor (who nevertheless, has the world's best helmet hair since Sally Field in "Steel Magnolias"--you know what I mean).

Call Me Crazy...

...but this photo might be hotter than any of those Twilight photos VF ran at the end of last year. Two syllables: HOT-NESS.

Thanks, Jamie!

My favorite celebrity chef, Jamie Oliver, launched his own magazine right before the Christmas holiday season. The second issue is now available in fine bookstores, such as Borders and Barnes and Noble. Click HERE for more info (if my following review doesn't suffice).

The magazine is refreshing, sophisticated, and very well put together. Jamie travels to exotic locales, such as Cape Town, Africa, and presents lovely snippets of the food life in the area. The magazine is also an outlet of his new fine line of dishes and kitchenware, jme. The contributing writers offer advice on everything from wine to herb gardening to Britain's local organic food markets.

The only downside to the magazine? It's only available as an imported magazine, and it comes with a hefty $10 price tag. You can subscribe internationally, but it would be cheaper just to go over to B&N every two months and buy it off the rack. (There's an additional $10 added to the magazine's yearly cover price.)

Husband just informed me that CBS just renewed Two and a Half Men for THREE more seasons. Really? Are you kidding me? This is effing ridiculous. Apparently people watch this show, BUT I have never spoken to anyone who actually takes time out of their Monday night to sit on the couch and watch Charlie Sheen "act." And, why do I put act in quotes? Because he just shows up, pulls on a pair of shorts, and read lines from a cue card. (Yes, I have actually endured two or three episodes, so I feel I have the right to rip this horrible sitcom to shreds.) Now I want to address Jon Cryer: Why, Ducky, why???

The fact that this show will see nine seasons just proves how dimwitted middle America is. They watch shows like this, when unheralded quality entertainment like Firefly, Freaks and Geeks, and even Jericho go by the wayside. It's really rough being a smart TV viewer in this country.


What could be better than the release of Twilight on DVD? Finding out it was also released on Blu-Ray (which wasn't supposed to happen until May 5)! What could be better than owning Twiling on Blu-Ray and being able to revel in its angsty, vampiric, moody glory everyday? Being the guest of honor at a surprise shower...with a Twilight theme!!!

My wonderful girls--Kendra, Cori, Alyssa, Lauren, Theresa, and the Big C--threw me a surprise shower last night in the Cape. An awesome Twilight tablescape, which would've shamed Sandra Lee, awaited me, complete with a cake in the shape of an apple. It was awesome: we dined on Imo's, St. Louis' finest pizza, opened lots of cute baby clothes, and capped off the night with the first of many viewings of Twilight on DVD.

Thank you to my awesome friends! I hope they read this and know how much I love them!!!

A Perfect Day...

...for reading Twilight.

It's rainy, drizzly, and cloudy. Sounds like Forks, huh? This puts me in the Twilight mood. I wish I could go home, pick one of the books off my self, randomly turn to a page (I don't even care which one), and just sit there all day and read. That sounds heavenly!

Baby Post #1 (of a Million)

I want this stroller. (It's called a Chicco--how could I not?)
That's it.

What to Do?

As previously posted, Twilight comes to DVD on March 21. HOWEVER, it comes to Blu Ray on May 5...May 5! Being newly equipped with a sweet 42 inch plasma, and an even sweeter Blu Ray player, I am very tempted to get the Blu Ray edition.


What should I do? How do I proceed? Tell me what you think. Please. Cause seriously, I have no idea.

Martha Washington's a Hip, a Hip Lady!

Rory Cochrane, who uttered those words as everyone's favorite stoner, Slater, has joined the cast of 24. He'll be playing a recurring character, who is Jon Voight's henchman.

If you remember back to December (oh! that rhymed), I was wondering who they would get to continue their string of hip, cool guys from my youth. Well, the casting directors have gone from Sean Astin to Ricky Schroder to Mr. Rory. And, while the star status has dwindled a bit from guy to guy, it's still cool to see 24 give roles to old favorites.

So tune in Monday nights on FOX to see Rory help Voight do his devilish deeds.

If those four words don't get you excited, then maybe the trailer will. Click HERE for the Public Enemies trailer. Oh, and if you don't want to see it, then you're not allowed to read this blog anymore, cause you're an IDIOT!
