VIGGO ...

So guess who came to see me in the ether last night?  Viggo.  I think you all might have noticed that I haven't had too much to say about my boyfriend for quite some time and that's because he isn't my boyfriend anymore.  This last visit was the clincher.

I'd been feeling it for a while.  Things just weren't the same.  Last night confirmed it.  Gone was the shy, lovable man I'd grown to know and love and in his place was a man who I did not recognize.  He was loud and ridiculous and acting like a MOVIE STAR ... which most definitely is NOT the Viggo I know AT ALL.  He was flirting with every woman in the room and not paying nearly enough attention to ME.  And the attention he did pay me was insincere and pretentious.  He was playing with me.  Toying with me.  Giving me encouragement but then leaving me hanging.  This was definitely not the man I knew.  The man I knew would never play with my feelings.  Something had changed. 

Now I have to admit that just lookin…

MOVIE REVIEWS ...

Dan and I saw it this weekend and I have to say that it was VERY DEPRESSING.  Bradley Cooper does do an amazing job but the movie itself is a horrifyingly honest depiction of war and what it does to human beings.  In the words of John Lennon, we seriously got to give peace a chance LIKE YESTERDAY. However, I am afraid that that will never happen because there is too much money to be made from war, because the people who decide to go to war NEVER send their loved ones, nor did most of them serve in their country in it's time of need, and lastly, misguided, fundamentalist beliefs that have nothing to do with God and everything to do with narcissistic, dualistic thinking. 

This movie was a major downer.  It depicts the insanity of fighting for an ideal that doesn't exist.  The suffering, death and brutality of human beings who've forgotten that they are human beings and who have lost sight of the original ideal for which they believed in enough to die for.

GOLDEN GLOBES BEST AND WORST! ....

Rosamund Pike - GORGEOUS in white.  I have loved this girl since seeing her in "Barney's Version" with Paul Giamatti.  Super talented and REALLY beautiful in the classic old movie star way.  Beautiful gown, beautiful makeup, beautiful hair, overall look:  BEAUTIFUL.  GRADE:  A+  WINNER WINNER WINNER!!!



Naomi Watts.  LOVE HER.  Nominated for her performance in "St. Vincent" in which she plays a Russian prostitute which was hilarious.  Sadly, I've seen her look better.  This funky yellow frock left a lot to be desired.  Grade:  F- 


Amy Adams, ethereal in perwinkle blue.  Very pretty and very simple.  Her makeup was perfection.  Can you believe she's 40 years old???   She doesn't look a day over 24!  Grade:  A+ 



Giuliana Rancic in mauvey/pink - She looked really good for a corpse. 


Zosia Mamet - looking at this dress I could not get the Jetsons theme song out of my head ... Here's George Jetson .... Jane his wife .... Sorry Zosia ... Grade:  F-

ADVENTURES IN DANNYLAND PART II AND HAPPY NEW YEAR ...

SO ... for some freaking bizarre reason I have a ton of flies in my house.  I have no idea where they came from.  Either a hidden nest of larvae has just hatched in my condo or I there's a poltergeist in my house. 

After returning home from shopping Danny and I were greeted by five flies swarming all over my kitchen.  I HATE FLIES!  So Dan takes a dish towel and begins swatting at them like a man possessed and of course misses all of them.  He then takes a bottle of Windex and begins spritzing them like a crazy man. 

Me:  "WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!?!"

Dan:  "I'm killing the flies."

Me:  "DAN WINDEX IS NOT GOING TO KILL THE FLIES!"

Dan:  "I know!  It stuns them.  They get all absorbed and drunk and then fall to their deaths."

Me:  "Oh my God."

(Just then he spritzed another fly)

Dan:  "LOOK!  LOOK!  SEE!  He fell from the ceiling!"

He then picks up the fly in a paper napkin and proudly shows me the dead fly.  

Me:  "WELL DON&…
