Meet The Brady's


Looks like Tom Brady (31) & Gisele Bundchen (28) got married yesterday (yes, on a Thursday) at the St. Monica Catholic church in Santa Monica California. They had a formal small intimate ceremony at dusk & the bride wore a Dolce & Gabanna gown with a floor length veil. The couple have been together for just about three years and he's said before that she is "the one" so let's hope they can keep their spirit alive together for many years to come! Congratulations to the happy couple!!!

A Girl Scout Should Know Better


We just received this picture of one of our signs, it was taken today. How does one tell the Girl Scouts that they aren't allowed to cover a real estate sign with home made posters for cookie sales?

Oscars Oscars Oscars!!!

Hey all, I'm sure you all watched the Oscars just like I did but I figured I'd let you in on my faves & the folks who scared me. Now during the show I thought to myself "wow, most everyone looks really good whatever will I write about tomorrow?" but now that I'm reviewing the pics there is plenty to say! As you will see below...these are the WORST of the WORST from last night & please notice that Mickey Rourke isn't pictured. He looked pretty bad but not bad enough to be labeled the worst so yay Mickey for staying off my list!!


The worst dressed of the night from Left to right: Sofia Loren, Miley Cyrus, Vanessa Hudgens, Beyonce, Reese Witherspoon, Phillip Seymour Hoffman. I can say as well that Whoopi Goldberg deserves an honorable mention...her dress wouldn't have been that bad if it weren't leopard print. Zac Efron also deserves a mention for being very poorly dressed & coiffed...he looked really bad.

Now for the Best!!
Ok so my favorite hair was Kate Winslet though a lot of folks hated it, my favorite jewels were Angelina with all her emeralds, I also loved Anne Hathaway's whole look though I didn't pick her as my fave. I thought Diane Lane looked hot as always & the best dressed couple were the Penn's.



As you can see my favorite gal was Natalie Portman & my favorite man was Brad Pitt. My only complaint about Natalie was that she looked orange as did a lot of people so even though it's not good for you I would like to suggest that the actors do go tanning as opposed to being airbrushed before a night like this one.

All in all I thought it was a great show, Hugh Jackman was funny & sweet & I have to say that I find him much more attractive now than I did before. I would like to say though that these damn things are just toooo long. We don't need to see clips of everything, all of these "past shows" montages are unnecessary, and a huge time waster. My favorite show is still the SAG awards...they are all about the actors & over in 2 hours. I know that the behind the scenes folks & directors & everyone involved deserves their moment in the spotlight & to be nominated & to win & all that good stuff but do we really need to see costume samples from every movie nominated? Nope, if we saw the movie we are aware & if we didn't we probably don't care so move it along!!

Oh, one final comment about the night...what's with Brangelina not talking to anyone? Tim Gunn chased them down just to tell them how gorgeous they are & Ryan Douchebag was lucky to get in 2 words to Brad & Angelina just ran away. Now, I would run away from Ryan too but Tim? Everyone loves Tim Gunn & would certainly stop to talk to him just to make sure that they look good & Brangelina should be no different. You guys are great but nobody is too cool to talk to Tim Gunn!!

One thing I forgot to mention, why doesn't Jessica Biel ever do her hair?

Peeve O' The Day

So I get up to go to the bathroom & grab a cup of coffee & when I return there is a file folder in my chair, this is the 3rd time in 2 weeks this has happened. There are 6 clearly labeled inboxes in my cube & my chair is not one of them! I don't understand how someone thinks that placing work in the inbox for my ass is going to get their work done. What if I hadn't seen it? I could be sitting on the folder for days on end & then they would come to me & say did you ever get to that stuff I left for you? I would respond "what stuff"? "The stuff I left in your chair last week". I would look at them puzzled and then stand up & say "oh my God jack ass I never even saw this sitting here"!!! Maybe I should do that...what do you think?

Rihanna Pic


Thanks to TMZ we have the photo of Rihanna's face after the alleged beating by her boyfriend Chris Brown. This pic is pretty nasty & her face looks sore as hell, I'm assuming the next couple days her face turned all shades of purple. I feel really bad for her & don't believe these rumors that she would go back to him but then again, women do it all the time & I don't know why. All these people seem to be saying is "don't men know they should never hit a woman", well I don't think anyone should hit anyone really it's not just that men shouldn't hit women but they shouldn't hit each other nor should women hit men just because the man isn't supposed to hit back. Obviously nobody knows what happened here but I will say that if I started beating on my man & was causing injury I would expect him to hit me back, not beat me unconscious but certainly stand up for himself. In no way am I condoning what he did to her, let me just clear that up but everyone is just snapping judgement right away at him & yes, he's an asshole & shouldn't have done that to her & I hope he gets what he deserves for it but none of us know what happened at all, everything is speculation at this point so people need to stop jumping to conclusions & blowing things out of proportion when they don't have any actual information. I would also like to say that just because Chris Brown is a total douche bag doesn't mean that I like his music any less & guess what? I don't hear it anymore! WTF is up with that? I still hear Ike Turner on the radio & we all know what he did to Tina repeatedly for years but I don't see 104.3 pulling his music. Why do I have to be punished because of what he did? I still love his music & still want to dance to it all the damn time & while I also feel the same about her music the stations need to stop playing her songs every 3rd song before I get sick of her!

If I Were A Boy...

Ok, now even though I will say that I sing along when I am stuck listening to this due to lack of anything else I still don't think this song makes one bit of sense. I'm sitting here reading the lyrics & she makes it sound like women don't have these rights that the men she is singing about seem to enjoy daily so let's do a little break down shall we?

I’d roll out of bed in the morning and throw on what I wanted and go - I did this today
drink beer with the guys - I drink beer with the girls
And chase after girls - And chase after guys
I’d kick with who I wanted and I'd never get confronted for it cause they stick up for me - All true friends do this male or female

I would turn off my phone tell everyone it's broken - I do this when I want peace
So they think that I was sleeping alone - who cares what people think
I’d put myself first - Check, I do this daily
And make the rules as I go - Again, check
Cause I know that she’d be faithful waiting for me to come home - Waiting? I'd be out too

But you’re just a boy, you don’t understand how it feels to love a girl - Um, other than boys only lesbians know how it feels to love a girl, it's us girls who make everything out to be so much bigger than it is, maybe just maybe if women did in fact behave like Beyonce's version of men then there wouldn't be all these crazy bitches following their men to see who they are with or grilling them about where they were. Bottom line in any relationship is if you doubt them, end it! After looking at these lyrics & scientifically analyzing them I think this song should be called "If I Were Still Single" because that's basically what she's getting at, if I were still single I could do whatever I wanted like she seems to think boys do & now that she's married she no longer has the luxury. That's my opinion!

Jugs Marries Frenchie



I can’t believe I forgot to post this one! Salma Hayek married her baby-daddy Francois-Henri Pinault on Valentine’s Day, awww barf. They married in a simple civil service in Paris & I don’t get it, they had just ended their engagement & then they turn around & get married anyway? Maybe the engagement was never called off, maybe she’s pregnant again or maybe he figured out that it doesn’t get much better than Salma Hayek & begged her to take him back. In my opinion…she could do better!

Octuplet Woman Has A Publicist?

This woman makes me sick...obviously she's gotten what she wanted, to be on TV but now that's over & I think it just hit her that she has a zillion kids & no help. My major complaints about this woman are that she has no job & she sees nothing wrong with that, and I don't want kids therefore I don't feel like I should have to pay for hers. Now, I don't know if any of you have ever attempted to adopt a dog from a shelter but you basically have to give a blood sample before you can take it home but they will just go ahead & impregnate some unemployed woman who already has 6 kids with 8 more? I was reading this article and the police are concerned over all of the hate mail this woman is getting which doesn't surprise me but the best part about the article is that they say the police have been talking to this woman's publicist...publicist? Forget who's paying for the kids who is paying for her publicist that she doesn't need? She's unemployed!!!!!

Who Does That?

Today I'm driving to work & the road I take is just a 2 lane so if you are behind some old lady with blue hair you are kind of screwed & today was awful. I was behind a non-old lady in a white car, basic 4 banger & she was going 5 under (40) & kept tapping her brakes which was getting on my nerves because I just wanted to gun it & run her off the road. Well finally as we are coming up a hill toward a light I notice that she is riding the ass of the person in front of her so I let it go & realize that she is like me & also annoyed by what I assume is an old lady with blue hair. This ass riding & brake tapping went on until the next light when white car pulled into the left turn lane and then I saw it, the car she was riding the ass of was a freaking Lotus. You mean to tell me that you are going to pay $75,000+ dollars on a car & you can't even be bothered to go the speed limit, who does that? The speed limit is 45 & this guy (yes it was a man) was going about 38. Once we opened up to 2 lanes he moved over & I gunned it & flew past him giving him a very dirty look & shaking my fist at him as well.

One more for ya but since it also involves stupid drivers I figured I might as well do them together. Yesterday I'm on my way home from work & it was actually a very pleasant drive until I got to my final turn. I make a left off of the street I'm on & need to make a right pretty much immediately so as I always do I get in the right lane & wait for that light to turn green. The line is pretty long which isn't all that rare but it's not the norm so I wait & the light changes & we move up like 1 car length so now I see the light turning red & I'm getting pissed. Cars are shifting in & out of my lane and then I see the flashing lights so I take it back hoping that something terrible hasn't happened. The last time I was stuck behind a cop car with it's flashers on it's because there was a dead baby deer in the road, so sad. Anyway, I move into the next lane with everyone else & then make the wide right turn to the street I need and I look & there is a woman sitting in her car waiting for her ticket. It's 5:30 on a weekday & you don't think to maybe pull into the driveway at the next business on the other side of the light? You completely block the intersection making it next to impossible for those of us who are trying to turn to do so, did you pass drivers ed? A better question is why didn't the cop tell her to pull into the driveway, I'm assuming nobody gives a shit or maybe the cop chewed her out for being stupid & blocking the intersection to begin with. I mean dude, who does that? See diagram below :)

Who Does That? Celeb Edition!


A guy & girl get into an argument in the car, he is driving, they pull over, she throws the keys out the window & when he can’t find them he goes ape shit. He hits her, bites her, strangles her until she passes out & takes off. Who does that? I’ll tell ya who, Chris Brown!! Now, none of this is fact at this point, just a story that’s being told by E! but I’m going to guess that it’s not far from the truth since photos showed (to the police not me) her having a split lip, bruises all over her face & bite marks all over her arms. I always thought he was such a nice kid but the story had to come from some particle of truth so now I've got him on hold. What I can't believe is that people are actually wondering if they are going to get back together…what do you think?

No More Sex With Ghosts?


It's rumored that Katherine Heigl & T.R. Knight will be leaving Grey's Anatomy. James Pickens who plays the chief said that he heard they were leaving but others say that no way would he know that because they haven't been released from their contracts yet. Well, they both requested to be released which is fact & considering that I read that T.R. has had about 45 minutes of lines this whole season I'm sure they'll let him go. Now, I understand why they wouldn't want to let her go, she's gotten pretty popular since the show started, in fact her & Patrick Dempsey are the only 2 "stars" on the show so of course they are going to try to hold on to her but come on, I told you all before that I dropped the show after the first episode this season & I'm so glad I did. I've heard nothing but bad things about this season & I think they should just cancel the damn show altogether. If they didn't want Katherine to leave the show then why the hell did they have her go insane & have an affair with a dead guy? Meredith the main character is one of the most annoying female characters I've ever watched on TV, she makes women look like stupid neurotic nymphos which sure, we can all get that way but she's like that 24/7! Anyway, please just put everyone out of their misery & just move McDreamy to Private Practice because spending 1 hour a week with both Taye Diggs & Patrick Dempsey sounds pretty good to me!!

Who Does That?

Welcome my friends to the first of edition of Who Does That? I often come in contact with people who do dumb shit & I think to myself, "come on, who does that?" and obviously the response is "assholes like them". So I've decided to start posting my who does that thoughts & see what you all think or who knows maybe you'll read one & think "shit, I do that" & realize that you too are an asshole!! Ok here we go:

A man flies to a different state to attend a wedding of a friend, he then rents a car to drive the extra 40 minutes to said wedding, he gifts the bride & groom of course then drives the 40 minutes back to where he is staying then the next day flies back home. Three months later he receives an e-thanks which states that the groom is sending them this way to save on postage. Save on postage? Hello, the least they could do was send a paper thank you to those who came from out of state & paid a crap load more than locals to spend their happy day with them. Now I ask you, who does that?

Worst Economic News In A While, For Me Anyway!!

I stole the snippets below from a Yahoo article that totally freaked me out. Whatever will I do on a Friday night?

Blockbuster. (BBI; about 60,000 employees; stock down 57%). The video-rental chain has burned cash while trying to figure out how to maximize fees without alienating customers. Its operating income has started to improve just as consumers are cutting back, even on movies. Video stores in general are under pressure as they compete with cable and Internet operators offering the same titles. A key test of Blockbuster's viability will come when two credit lines expire in August. One possible outcome, according to Valueline, is that investors take the company private and then go public again when market conditions are better.

If Blockbuster falls I may cry...I am a bit of a Blockbuster junkie & there is no way I could start using Netflix or something, the best part about renting a movie is browsing the store & reading the backs of all the movies & then renting it & watching it that night, not waiting until the next day!

Krispy Kreme. (KKD; about 4,000 employees; stock down 50%). The donuts might be good, but Krispy Kreme overestimated Americans' appetite - and that's saying something. This chain overexpanded during the donut heyday of the 1990s - taking on a lot of debt - and now requires high volumes to meet expenses and interest payments. The company has cut costs and closed underperforming stores, but still hasn't earned an operating profit in three years. And now that consumers are cutting back on everything, such improvements may fail to offset top-line declines, leading Krispy Kreme to seek some kind of relief from lenders over the next year.

If Krispy Kreme falls I think I'll go insane, how in the hell can I cope through hard times without their sugary goodness?

Joe Won't Shoot You

*This is from my other blog but I had to share it*

Well guys, over the last few months I've been giving you all kinds of tips on dating & the shit I've been putting up with but today my friends I will tell you a story, a story of a crazy business owner who went insane on my friend Jen, well for a while there they were insane on each other & that was a lot to handle! Ok so I'll give you some basic info that is needed to bring us to the reason I posted this to begin with. Joe is a business owner of a prominent bar in Dearborn & in this bar is where Jen & Joe met. Joe is married and doesn't seem to care much I guess because he was seeing Jen & god knows who else for years, I'm sure he's probably still seeing other women but since I'm not around much anymore it's hard to know for sure but some things never change, lets just put it that way. Ok so Jen & I lived together for some time so I was inadvertently stalked by Joe daily which was creepy, he would drive by & honk every single night...so annoying. Jen & Joe had a very tumultuous relationship for like 5 years and one summer she hit him right in the face & broke the bone under his eye, this was funny. After the broken face incident things started to change a bit & Jen started to understand that life was best without this douche bag. They both ended up taking out restraining orders on each other a few years back & that is basically what leads us here...due to the luxuries of community websites like Myspace & Facebook we can all stay in contact with people we love, like & loathe all at the same time, how awesome right? Not so much because you end up with shit like this coming through:


"Jenny,Nice hipps, hows life any better? i want to own a hand gun. i promise not to shoot you with it. maybe how about taking off my hand cuffs? Joey"


So, what do you think, should she release the PPO & let Pound Cake (his nickname, if you saw him you'd get it) get a hand gun & not shoot her with it?The fact that he can't even properly spell hips makes me say no, plus the fact that I know the entire history of this situation also makes me lean toward no but part of me is thinking that she does live in another state now so maybe she should let him. I mean, I'm sure having the gun will provide entertainment for all of us in some way when he gets thrown in jail for pulling it on someone at the bar or accidentally shooting himself or some other dumb ass incident so really, this is a toss up!!

Movie Review


Ok folks He's Just Not That Into You was freaking great! Now, I've read the book about 5 times I'd say and while the movie resembles the book the book is non-fiction so the ending isn't as happy. Now, in the grand scheme of things the movie contradicts the book for the most part, at least closer to the end...during the movie & building of all of the relationships they are very similar & I enjoyed watching these scenarios that I read about play out on the screen. The movie is a pretty honest portrayal of women & how they perceive relationships & men & the crazy things that we actually believe that couldn't be any further from reality. I don't know why it is that women always want to "read into" everything and make excuses for the behavior of straight up assholes...why would we want to be with an asshole? Who knows but it's pretty hard to not turn into one of those women once in a while, trust me...it just happened to me!! Anyway, while this is basically a chick flick I don't think it would really be off limits to men especially if you have the kind of man who watches Desperate Housewives with you on Sundays. There are hot chicks in the movie too which keeps the interest of the men & you get to see Scarlett Johansson in her bra so that's a plus! Ginnifer Goodwin's character Gigi was my favorite, reminded me most of myself but more neurotic & intense than I am. So, I give this one 3 (of 4) olives so go check it out, it was funny and sweet and honest and oh yeah Jennifer Connelly was quite unlikeable unfortunately. Oh, and to the bitch that was sitting behind me, did you have to comment on every scene? Did you have to kick my chair a hundred times? Did you have to constantly be sniffling & coughing for no reason? You suck!!!

James vs. Knowles


LOL, I just read an article which said that Etta James doesn't like Beyonce & thought that her performance of At Last at one of the inaugural balls was terrible & said "You know that woman he had singing for him, singing my song, she's going to get her ass whipped", ha ha ha ha. She also states that she can't "stand" Beyonce, lol. Now I'm not a huge fan but I like Beyonce and I also like Etta James & being that she is the original I'm going to have to take her side on this one! You tell em Etta, a remake is ever as good as the real thing anyway.

Michael Phelps is a big fat stoner...so effing what? The kid won a bunch of gold medals & I think a little herbal enjoyment is in order after working that hard...don't you? Everyone is freaking out "oh no, he smoked pot" well if a stoner can clean up at the Olympics like that imagine what he could have done had he not been puffin the ganj. Personally I'm all for it, it isn't like he was using roids or something else to enhance his performance & the Olympics are over so I say toke it up Phelps but don't forget to pass :)

Damn Shadow!!


Friggin Punxsutawney Phil saw his damn shadow today which means that winter will continue for 6 more weeks. Dude, I'm so over this shit season, I'm sick of wearing a scarf & gloves, I'm sick of having my windows closed, I'm sick of the fact that Ritter's isn't open, I'm sick of my friends not coming over, my opened toed shoes are sick of not being worn, I'm tired of filling up the humidifier every night, I'm tired of a sunless existence, I'm tired of having to battle the snow in my parking lot at home...even when it hasn't snowed in weeks, I'm tired of having no social life because winter makes me crazy & I hate leaving my house, I'm tired of being scared for my life just to drive to work because the roads are so awful, I'm sure Doug is totally sick of me taking his car to avoid the aforementioned terror, this could go on forever really but basically I'm sick & freaking tired of winter, period!!!!!!
