$550 Million? - Yeah that would be good...

I bought tickets.  Not a lot of tickets but I have a few numbers for tonight.  Here is hoping that someone I know wins big.  Fingers crossed.  $500 million would come in handy right now (as I am sure it would for everyone)!

Now we get down to business...

Project Runway All-Stars last night continued with the trimming of the fat (or the non-talented) and SPOILER ALERT....Andrae is gone, "Oh Dear".  So we no longer have his over-affected fake accent trying to explain how a zipper dress is based on a girl in a photo.  His goodbye speech was so condescending and out there one has to wonder if he was (a) either on something or (b) really so clueless that he believes that any of us are going to take him seriously.  Or choose him as fan favorite?!

I am glad Andre is gone.  I loved him on his season (OK love is a little strong but I at least tolerated him) but he has become this fake person vying for minutes that I really am not crazy about (its all about the TV Time).  I feel like the remainder of the designers (and when I say designers I mean designers) will not only make for good television but will show us all some amazing work.

Do you agree?

Channing Tatum was named the Sexiest Man Alive today by People magazine.  It was not a BIG surprise only because 2012 has been the year of Channing (hello Magic Mike).  Now the question is fair readers, do you agree with People mag or should it have been someone else this year?  And if it should have been someone else, who? 

I am going to have to agree....

HIMYM - Splitsville...Finally?

I have been remiss in mentioning my favorite show lately (ya'll know its How I Met Your Mother).  Frankly the episodes have been forgettable and not as laugh out loud funny as in the past (remember The Naked Man, Whoo Girls, 3 Day rule etc...).  But last night, while it was not laugh out loud funny, this episode moved us closer to the goal of the show (no not finding the mother, the reconciliation of Barney and Robin).  And Nick, played by Michael Trucco, really was cute with his hot, dumb character. 

I have read the comments, perused the blogs and know that many people are sick of the show and think it has run its course.  I, on the other hand, am still invested in these characters and want to see them happy.  Plus there are still those episodes that are so creative and funny (plus NPH people) that I cannot turn away. 

I laughed last night (no not guffawed but I did laugh) and I was moved by the final scene with Barney and Robin.  We are getting there people just don't give up just yet.

The End of the World as we Know it....

Are you sitting down?  How will we live in a world in which The Biebs and the Gomez have split.  Can we go on living?  Will they ever find another love like this?  Doesn't everyone find their soul mate at 17 and settle down (OK maybe in NC or West Virginia, not in real life)?  I hope that you all will be able to hold your heads up, get out of bed and take it day by day.  The Biebs will have a new girl in 2 weeks...

Daddy Cat?????

Last night on Project Runway All-Stars I got my wish.  No my wish was not a graffiti inspired challenge (although I must admit the challenge itself was pretty creative) my wish was for "Suede Out".  And he is!  I appreciate the fact that we are getting down to the real designers and not focusing on the people that are only in it for the TV time (Suede, Wendy, Andre is hopefully next).  So the challenge was interesting, I actually liked who won (Emilio) and I was happy with the auf'd.  All in all a productive night.

One small a world that everything must be politically correct are we really now calling graffiti artists aerosol artists?  Seriously?

Tivo Mom out!  Oh and how can I name myself Daddy Cat (or Momma Cat for that matter).  I must get a better nickname.

Today is the day...

I try to stay away from political talk.  Its not that I don't read the posts from my blogger peeps but I do not comment.  Some of my views differ from my friends.  That is what America is all about.  I am allowed to have different views and ideas in hopes that my friends will accept that and still accept me.

Today as we vote for a new president, whomever it may be, I hope that everyone votes and that at the end of the day we all come together to support our (notice I said our) President.

Good luck to all of the differing parties today.  This one is big but I hope that at the end the outcome will benefit us all.

Happy Election Day!

Ding Dong the Witch is Dead...I guess

Project Runway All-Stars last night was inspired by the 70's.  Wendy Pepper's outfit was inspired by Breakin 2 Electric Bugaloo.  So Wendy Pepper went home.  Now I don't like Wendy (I watched season 1 and I loved Austin Scarlett at the time) but has she aged and become sweeter or was she just playing everyone.  And the relationship with Suede, real or not real?  Anyway she is gone and we will never know.  Not upset by this elimination at all.  But many unanswered questions.

Oh and can Suede go next (Blue Suede my ass)....

Happy Friday!

Halloween has come and gone...

I am not a fan of Halloween.  I know, I know it is fun to dress up and my kids love the candy (as I try to slowly remove it from the house so I won't eat it) but I don't like to be scared.  I hate scary movies, haunted houses etc...  Just not my thing.  So imagine my good humor when my sweet (sweet) children told me what they wanted to be for Halloween.  My little girl with her pretty bows and long, curly hair wanted to be a black ninja (as opposed to white or red) and my preppy little boy wanted to be a phantom with a scythe.  And because it was Halloween and I am the best mom ever (not) and I did not want the fight....I gave in.  So here it is, the picture of my sweet sweet children in which you cannot see their faces because of the costumes.  Happy belated Halloween. And welcome Thanksgiving!
