HOLA ...

OK ... so everyone on the planet Earth has their panties in a twist because of Renee Zellweger’s face.  Personally I think she looks great.  Better than before.  And I’ll tell you why she looks different – she had her eyes done.  Her eyes were nipped and tucked.  Before they looked closed, now they look open.  I guess it is her prerogative as to whether or not she wants to own up to it, but apparently she doesn’t because she is stating that a “healthier lifestyle" is the reason for her looking like an ENTIRELY DIFFERENT person.  OK.  If that’s how you wanna go.  But we all know she had a little nip and tuck.  Personally, I don't think she looks THAT different.  And personally I would LOVE to have my eyes done.  I have so much sagging skin on my upper lids that soon I’ll need visors to hold up the excess skin.  Renee, before your "healthier lifestyle" you looked like you were right in the middle of a sneeze.  Now you don’t, so good for you.

Of course they did.  Chris Martin is 37 and Jennifer is a child.  As talented as she is, she is still only 24.  This is why Gwyneth was somewhat cool about the whole affair (except for the fact that Jennifer is ALSO AN OSCAR WINNER which I'm sure just chaps Gwyneth's hide) ... anywho, I'm fairly certain Gwynnie figured it would burn itself out.  And it did.  So there.  So much for their conscious uncoupling ... P.S.  I still hate Gwyneth Paltrow.

I LOVES ME SOME DOLLY PARTON.  Girlfriend has a very large gay fan base and has always been very vocal in her support of the gay community.  She has taken to task Christians who judge those in the gay and transgender community and accuses them of sinning just as badly as others by judging those who are different from them.  Good for you Dolly. 
Douglas MacKinnon Calls For Southern U.S. To Secede As Anti-Gay Nation Called 'Reagan'     
*SIGH* ... these sad SAD people ... they really believe this nonsense. 
Douglas MacKinnon says ... "If you do believe in the Golden Rule, then you're seeing all of this unravel before our eyes daily, unfortunately," he said. "If you happen to make a donation in favor of traditional marriage, you can lose your job. If you happen to refuse to bake a cake for a gay couple because it goes against your religious beliefs, you can be driven out of business."
Really?  Really.
How many cake bakers have been driven out of business because they refused to bake a gay cake????  How many folks have lost their job because they made a donation in favor of traditional marriage?  Really people, you're all just a tad too paranoid.  I say GO AHEAD and form your own nation called "Reagan" ... but do it on some remote island far far away.  Feel free to live in your own Private Idaho in your 1950's world but SHADDUP already!  And when nobody pays any attention to you all and when you have no one to blame for the Ebola virus but yourselves, don't come crying to me.

So the 2014 General Elections are being held here in California and the advertisements and mudslinging have begun.  Having worked in the field of politics for a short while I can tell you that it is a VERY DIRTY GAME.  I’d tell you where I worked but I’d have to kill you … seriously.  I signed a confidentiality agreement in order to work there hence the price on my head by writing this.  I witnessed some truly pathetic behavior on the part of elected officials that was disheartening to say the least.  It was a real education which bred a deep disappointment in ones fellow man.  Especially the fellow man we choose to lead us … from candidates who begged for endorsements without regard to their pride or convictions to candidates who basically sold their souls and swore to say and do ANYTHING for the organization’s endorsement.  I left that position a much sadder person.  I thought I was cynical, but I realized that I am not cynical.  I am idealistic.  So much so that my idealism was shattered by the lack of conviction and conscientious of so many men and women who run for office.  Do I vote?  I don’t know what difference my vote would make to tell you the truth.  But I also realize that that is what THEY want you to believe ...(THEY being the rich and powerful) ... they want the masses to be apathetic.  To not vote.  To not care.  This attitude allows THEM to run amok ripping and robbing at will.  It’s the same old song … or have I just gotten too old?     

It’s just like the real estate market.  Have you noticed all the Open Houses lately?  Oh yeah.  It’s like 2008 never happened.  People so quickly forget the misery of the economic downturn.  “You better get in now!”  “YOU GOTTA BUY before it’s too late!!!”  “If you don’t get in now you never will!!!” 
It’s almost as though renting is comparable to having an STD punishable by public shaming and banishment from respectable society. 
Here’s what you should do …
1.    Rent;
2.    Save a good down payment;
3.    THEN BUY.
Sadly, here is what most people do …
1.   BUY;
2.   With little or no down;
3.   With a mortgage that no one reads and, if they do, they don’t
      understand it. 
Then you have a CRASH.  It’s inevitable.  But whatever.  Having witnessed this trend many times in my lifetime I DO NOT WORRY about crap like this.  My advice?  Save the required down payment, have at least a year’s worth of income saved up just in case you get laid off and do not spend more than you earn.  AND DO NOT BE ASHAMED OF NOT OWNING A HOUSE RIGHT THIS SECOND.  If you do it right, you will eventually own a home … and you’ll be in a better position when you do.  You’re welcome. 


  1. I agree about Zellweger; it's the eyes.

    No more MartinLawrence? I'm devasta.....meh.

    I like Dolly, but I'm glad she didn't trot out that old saying of hers about why Gay folks shouldn't have the right to be as miserable as straight folks. I know it was a joke, but marriage equality is not a joke.

    Lordy, all this talk of secession. Every time some wingnut gets his knockers twisted he wants to secede. Maybe he should think about growing up first.

    The greed of realtors really annoys me. When we first moved to Smallville, the relator we used said we were approved for $500,000; we said we wanted to stay below $200,00--which is a real nice price here in Smallville--and she said, But you could spend up to half-a-million.
    I said, No we can't because we won't.
    Our mortgage payment today is $519.00 a month; that's what we wanted.

  2. DAYUM!!!! You can't RENT anything in L.A. for $519.00 a month! I tell you it's ridiculous here! I gotta get out of L.A. I need to find a nice place like your Smallville ... we like Albuquerque. Nice weather, nice people, GOOD FOOD.

  3. Love Albuquerque. I almost moved to Santa Fe in another life.

An Ode to Viggo
Who knows where or when my love for you began it took me by surprise and filled up my whole life
Some laughed and called me mad but I knew that was sad for love cannot be mocked and Viggo, my world rocked
I've seen his every film, his songs, his poems and still I love him more each day and that's how it will stay  for in my dreams he lives
Each step through ether's door we meet forever more and so shall it remain until my life should wane

Danny has this disgusting habit of brushing his teeth and then rinsing his toothbrush and leaving it ALL WET in the toothbrush thing.  (See photo below.  A roll of toilet paper he sets on the counter like a cup and then sticks his toothbrush in the middle of it) ... what a genius huh?

The point?  Adisgusting, wet toothbrush will collect bacteria and mosquitoes and it's disgusting and filthy.  It drives me crazy.  Does he stop?  NO.  

What you're supposed to do is brush, rinse with HOT water and then DRY THE BRUSH THOROUGHLY ... THEN put it in the toothbrush thing.  IT'S NOT THAT HARD.

And how hard is it to take the yogurt OUT of the plastic bag?

God forbid he break a sweat. 

 Also, he never EVER closes a drawer, a cabinet, or a door ... EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don't you HATE when your husband makes hamburgers ...

*sigh* ... my life.


Well, for some unknown reason I was unable to get E! Live on the Red Carpet!  I called the cable company, I unplugged the t.v. to reboot it ... NOTHING.  SO, I had to go with Channel 7's coverage which is NOT NEARLY AS IN DEPTH as E!  Needless to say Mama was pissed. 

So, with that in mind ... let's get started!

Alicia Vikander.  Beautiful!  She looks very young and sweet and elegant.  Love the color of this gown .... Grade:  A

Jennifer Lawrence.  BEAUTIFUL!  Love the hair, love the make up, love the the gown.  WINNER WINNER WINNER!!!  Grade:  A++

Brie Larson.  I'm not really feeling this gown.  The color is beautiful but the belt and the bling and the ruffles and the pleats ... there's a lot going on here.  Grade:  C

Nice guy Dave Grohl and wife.  Class Couple!  Love her dress and earrings ... very pretty. Dave .... it's the ACADEMY AWARDS .... a traditional tux would have worked much better and you would have looked SO HANDSOME.  Wife Grade:  A, Dave's Grade:…
