THE WEEK IN REVIEW ...

IT HAPPENED!


George Clooney is engaged to girlfriend
Amal Alamuddin I KNEW HE WOULD MARRY HER! And I'll tell you why ... she is NOT a bimbette.  She is a human rights attorney and a woman of substance.  GO GEORGE.  I knew he'd eventually marry.  I said he'd find someone in her thirties, with no baggage, and then bang out a couple of kids.  Was I right or was I right?  Congrats George. 

And Amy ... I'm sorry.  If this were Viggo I'd be devastated.  (see www.marryinggeogeclooney.com). 

Bill O'Reilly Explains To Critics Why He Is 'Being Mean To Colbert'
Bill O'Reilly dedicated the last segment of his show Monday night to explain to critics why he is "being mean to Colbert."

"The liberal press is very upset, and I really don't understand why," O'Reilly said. "Colbert has made a living exclusively satirizing the right," he added, explaining that his comments shouldn't come as a surprise.  ... "In the end, Colber…

SO AFTER HAVING A HEART-TO-HEART WITH MYSELF ...

and Laura and Jennifer, to whom I confided in at lunch about my feelings with regard to my blog and how I feel that I am contributing to the nonsense and filth I critique about, thereby being "a part of the problem and not a solution."  They immediately convinced me that "NOOOOO, you can't stop writing about the Housewives, Kimmie Kardashian and the like!"  So ... I shall carry on as before, bad mouthing and judging those crazy lunatics as I see fit because it is, after all, MY BLOG, and I am doing a public service (even though I do at times wrestle with my conscience) ...

Kardashian Crisis! Kris Jenner Rushed To Hospital With Bruce By Her Side Oh no!  What happened?  Did one of her implants explode?  Did her facelift fall?  Did Bruce get his first period?

AGING ...

Last night I caught Oprah’s interview with Sharon Stone on aging.  I love Oprah but sometimes I wonder what the hell she's thinking … Sharon Stone?  Who is 56 but looks 35?  Here she is on the cover of Shape ...




































No 56 year old I know looks like this unless they’re barfing after every meal.  COME ON OPRAH.  How come you didn’t talk to A REAL person?  It really is insulting to see you two gals gushing over “acceptance” and “embracing age” when you look like Sharon Stone.  Sharon talked about turning 40 when she took a bottle of wine into her bathroom and looked at her face in a magnifying mirror, and looked at her body and cried and cried and cried.  If she had MY body she would have slit her wrists.  Then she spoke about “internal beauty” … you know crap like wisdom and spirituality.  All in all it was completely self-serving and not realistic.  If I saw what Sharon Stone sees in the mirror I'd cry and cry and cry too ...  OUT OF HAPPINESS! 

Seriously Sharon.  I know you think y…

I'VE BEEN FIGHTING THE FLU ...

for about a week now so that is why I'm home on a beautiful Saturday afternoon in my pajamas ... my hair looks like I stuck my finger in socket and I could use a shower.  While lying on the couch in misery, I have been watching marathon episodes of the Housewives of NYC.  I know I say all the time that these horrible women drive me crazy and I'm not going to watch anymore but ... I continue to tune in.  I lie to myself by not watching EVERY week but, I do make it a point to RECORD EVER SINGLE EPISODE.  It is what it is and I must accept this flaw in my character.  With that said, the main fight with the ladies in NYC is that Aviva (the one-legged wonder) has been spreading a nasty rumor all over NYC that  Carole Radziwill had her memoir "What Remains" ghost written.  OK.  This is a lie.  Carole Radiziwill has an impressive resume as a writer.  She worked on 20/20 and has written articles for magazines and yes, in fact, she has written several books and she did not ha…

A QUICK, LITTLE RANT ...

Well Glenn Beck got his panties in a twist again.He said this on his radio show:



I’m not going to waste. My. Life. I’m going to do what I was born to do! All men were created equal and endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, among these are life, liberty AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS! I have a right to pursue my happiness! I have a right to do what I was born to do, not what they tell me what to do. That’s what that phrase means!

Glenn was really mad you see because people are actually signing up for Obamacare.  Therefore he found it necessary to expound upon the "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" argument. 

Glenn, HOW is this affecting YOUR pursuit of happiness?  You're a gazillionire.  You can afford to purchase all the happiness you desire.  I, on the other hand, cannot afford to purchase happiness.  I am a drone.  I pay taxes and then, at the end of the year, I get to pay MORE taxes  

I don't have offshore accounts or write offs like you p…

THE INTERNATIONAL SISTERHOOD OF CLERICAL WORKERS ...

It is said that there is a sisterhood among women.  This I know for sure.  There are many types of sisterhoods, but the one, the most important, is the Sisterhood of Clerical Workers aka Secretarial Drones.  Those of us who serve others in the clerical arts and sciences. 

It came upon me in a flash, as most realizations do, that I had not done something correctly.  A momentary lapse in concentration, a slip, an error and then REALIZATION!  A panic descended.  Then fear.  What to do?! What to do?!  The deed was done.  Now I was left to ponder how I would undo it.  At that moment, a lifeline descended from Heaven and into my mind came the words … “Call Elaina” my sister in the clerical arts.  I emailed her, explained the situation and she, without hesitation, appeared at my desk at the ready with empathy, no judgment and understanding.
How does one trace the workings of an error?  We think back, consider, remember.  We jump into action, searching the computer for telltale giveaways and c…
