Friday, July 22, 2011

Happy, Happy Friday all! Today I've got lots to do in the work and errands department. I typically avoid all productivity on Friday, but today there's no choice in the matter. Boo. But, rest assured, there's always time to peruse the internet for genius nuggets like these....

1. Casey Anthony-related bizarre-ity fascinates me. This week I've seen this ridiculous ad:

(sidenote: what the hell is up with that awful grammar? I guess it would have to be an illiterate person
 to think this sign was ok in the first place...)

...and this absurd dunking booth:

What is the world coming to? I don't know where I stand on her guilt or innocence, but I really don't support cult fame for possibly murdering a sweet baby. More than anything, I guess I'm just weirded out. I'm sort of ready for her to fade away...or at least onto a foreign soap opera or reality show.

2. Quote(s) of the week:
"I wanted them not to be turned off by something that was of their culture. They ate them like Doritos, and they wouldn't stop. They brought to-go boxes home and I had to actually ban the cricket eating at a certain point because I was afraid they were going to get sick from too many. They're good. They're like potato chips." -- Angelina Jolie, re: her children's love of eating crickets
Wait, what? I know it's probably natural, but the Jolie-Pitt babies eating crap off the ground sicks me out and just feels wrong. Specifically, Maddox and Pax (Asia natives) are the bug snackers. I'm all for eating organic, but this feels very "look at me, I'm famous, I do weird stuff"-ish to me. 
"Rob, I was very pleasantly surprised by your back muscles in the trailer, I think I speak for all of us when I say: NOM-NOM-NOM." -- random Twilight fan to RPatz in the Breaking Dawn panel at Comic Con
Wait, hold the phone. Was that me? Who broke into my brain and told him my thoughts? I love this quote. Real people are so funny, I should quote them more. And, of course you know I agree, the muscles are fantastic:

Yes, it's a nipple. Yes, it's real. Yes, she has one on both feet. It's a rare disease called "pseudomamma." Here are my questions: Is it sensitive like a normal nipple? (sexy...kind of) Can a baby eat out of it? Does it hurt to step on? Does she buy pasties for it? Does anyone I know in the real world have a nipple in their shoe and I don't even know it? Personally I hate feet, but isn't this a foot fetish-ist's wet dream?...I love stupid human stories. Bless this lady's heart, she probably doesn't think it's funny, but I sure do.

4. Krazy Kim Kardashian is suing Old Navy for using a model that looks like her. Yeah, you read that right. Nobody is even allowed to resemble her. This is the look-alike:

She thinks the company is trying to trick people into thinking she's a spokesmodel and she believes it's costing her $15-20 MILLION dollars. Um....what? This might be the most ego-maniacal thing I've ever heard. Honestly. I'll admit this model is definitely a doppelganger, but really is it a crime to be a voluptuous and beautiful Armenian-American these days? Maybe so. We all know the Kardashians are the only ones in this nation allowed to be voluptuous and beautiful Armenian-Americans. Duh, Old Navy.

5. Space News: Pluto has a new moon! Pluto, the newest non-planet, apparently has a moon we've just learned about. That makes the total 4! The new little mini-moon is only 21 miles wide and will just be called P4 for now. 

It's like it wants to be a planet so bad. Pluto, the little planet that could. Poor, little guy.

What fascinates me about this is that a moon just kind of crept onto the scene all of a sudden. After all the hulla-balloo a couple of years ago about the planet demotion, how didn't they see this? That's what I love about space. Surprises everyday. It's like each time they look into the Hubble telescope they're looking at a jack-in-the-box. You know there will be a surprise, but you're surprised every time anyway. Mind blown.

6. "J-WOW and her boobies are going to Italy"...

Yes, the much-anticipated, real Italy season of the Jersey Shore is coming soon and I can't wait. Highlights: Snookie wrecks a car. Deena is a meatball. Ronnie beats the hell out of Mike. J-WOW has a fake-r face. Pauly and Vinnie are freaking precious. I CANNOT WAIT. That's all, just excitement. August 4th, baby.

7. The Nickelodeon reboot is HAPPENING. I've blogged about this before, but the revival of favorite 1990's Nick shows is actually coming true! And it starts on Monday! From 12 midnight to 4 a.m. every night, Nickelodeon will be re-airing classics like Keenan & Kel, All That, Clarissa Explains it All, and Doug! Yes! Viva Quail Man!

I hope they add Salute your Shorts and Hey Dude to the lineup. Those were my absolute favorites! I doubted this story when I first read it, but it's real. And it's Monday. I've gotta be sure to set my coffee pot to brew, I have a feeling I'll be up all night re-living my television glory days. Hooray!

I hope you have a weekend full of frills, thrills and some debauchery. I'm headed out of town for a going away party for some dear friends (pout.). I'm happy and sad. Mostly happy, there will be costumes. I love a theme party. I really do. Photos to come... Thanks for playing!


  1. Um…I love every single thing about this post! I’m over Casey Anthony. I really hope there aren’t book and movie deals. Let’s not reward this behavior! Brangelina bug me. That was a not an intentional pun, but I’m sticking with it. How did I not notice the back muscles? Yum. That nipple thing is soooo weird and creepy. I saw the Old Navy commercial before I heard this story and Kim K did not come to mind. You have to be pretty full of yourself. Sad thing is, she’ll probably win. I cannot wait for Jersey Shore! Hey Dude and Salute Your Shorts were my faves too.

  2. I just can't even comprehend all of this craziness!


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