Friday newsflash!

Hip Hip Hooray for Friday! I have probably the best weekend of my life ahead of me. River Floating, Engagment party,'s going to be fab. I hope yours is super too, kick it of now with these... 1. Gary Coleman died. Sad. The Diff'rent Strokes actor died today of a brain hemorrhage. He fell down and bumped his little noggin Wednesday. Poor guy, always riddled in scandal and facing bizarre illnesses, it doesn't seem fair that he just fell down and that was it. This is is definitely a major cultural loss. Just for old times sake:
2. Miley Cyrus isn't going to college right now. Shocker. I think it is high-larious that she thinks we're all waiting on bated breath for her to announce whether or not she will continue on this trashy streak. Just in case, she went ahead and made this big announcement. The streak continues I guess. Remember sweet Hannah Montana? Remember how she was a role model for millions of young girls around the world? Yah....I forgot too. 3. Some Japanese company has invented ground-breaking fat-burning underwear, called "Cross Walker." SHUT THE FRONT DOOR. Supposedly these undies "will stimulate the muscles of the thighs, and spread it with a natural stride". I don't really know what they mean by "spread it." I have some questions, but clearly my mind went straight to the gutter. These things bear a striking resemblance to Spanxx (aka "heaven"). Leave it to the Japanese to make a good idea WAY freaking better. I don't know if I'll be acquiring any, they are like $60. I guess I did spring for Spanxx magic, though. 4. Willie Nelson chopped of his braids! Pout. I loved his braids. Now he has weird "not rockstar-ish" old guy hair. In other Willie Nelson news, they recently renamed portions of 2nd Street in downtown Austin, TX in his honor. The official name will remain 2nd Street, but "Willie Nelson Boulevard" will be on the signs. About the only thing easy about navigating downtown Austin is the numbered streets. I wonder what high person had this idea....
5. Quote of the week:
"[T]o be able to sit with my dad and [create] Price of Beauty, it's similar to missionary work. It was what I was called to do and called to be." Jessica Simpson to US Weekly
Ok, first off, this reality show of hers "The Price of Beauty" explores the definition of physical beauty in cultures around the world. I read that she is seeking a more comprehensive knowledge of how to be good looking - in more places on Earth. Now, how she connects that to "missionary work," I'm not exactly certain. Also, the daddy relationship continues to irk me. She's a real idiot. Who is in charge of letting her speak?
6. A new study has found that teeth brushing could have a direct and strong tie to heart disease. People who do not brush their teeth twice per day were 70% more likely to also be afflicted with heart diseases. WHOA! That is a bizarre, bizarre relationship to me. The best part of this story (obviously except the revelation on heart disease) is that the study was published in the British Medical Journal. Aren't the Brits known 'round the world for their sick-ass chompers? Maybe this news will turn that bad rap around a little bit. In the meantime, don't forget to brush! You could be saving your life!
Have a super weekend, there's pretty much no way you can top what I have in store...


  1. Seems like a lot happened this past week!! From Willie cutting the braid to poor Gary (and then there is Speidi breaking up (supposedly) and then Dennis Hooper passing).

    Hope you had a lovely Memorial Day Weekend


Thanks for the comment! I"m sending you a big cuddly warm bearhug through the interwebs....
