Celebrity Wrap Up - Friday Edition

Hello and welcome to Friday's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up.Does Brad Pitt know we've had a lot of rain in SLC this season? I think he needs to come and be my Personal Umbrella Holder. Oh, awesome. Drew Barrymore's switched from 80's wear into lumberjack wear. Nice.Is there any hotter accessory for a man to have than a baby? I think not.Lindsay channels her Farrah Fawcett look circa 1975.Who knew Matthew Mc-con-a-hottie could look so good while actually wearing clothes?

McP Says Hello

Last night at Cindy Ree's, Little Miss McP was in rare form and was cracking us up. It's fun to watch her grow up and see her adorable little personality develop. She's hysterical! Dinner was great, as always, and it's nice to have time during the week to catch up with good friends. Hooray for Cindy Ree's! :)

Top Five Facebook Comics of the Day

Pinky's Fandance, Thursday Edition

Yes, this picture was taken in a church bookstore. What can I say? I go where the stars are.Today's Fandance is more of a Mormon reference, as I'm not sure Will Swenson has done much work other than Mormon/local movies (although he is on Broadway right now). He did star in The Singles Ward, though, which is one of my favorite Mo' movies. Plus, he's super nice and dreamy. Love him.

Don't Judge Me

Did you know that my beloved Depeche Mode (and #2 on my Top Three bands of all time) released a new album this week? Did you? Surprisingly, I wasn't breaking down the doors to buy it. I previewed snippets on iTunes and could take it or leave it....but, then I decided to at least give it a shot? I mean, it is DM after all. I'm so glad I did. I'm loving this new CD.
I'm also enjoying the soundtrack from the Hannah Montana movie (try not to judge me). What can I say? Apparently I'm lacking a variety of music right now (and the CD isn't all Miley - it's a bunch of different artists). It's the little things that make me happy.

Celebrity Wrap Up - Thursday Edition

Hello and welcome to Thursday's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up.Freaking economy. You know things are rough when Ben Affleck and Kevin Costner start taking side jobs doing construction work.Thank you, SJP, for doing your hair today (or at least providing the illusion of having your hair done by disguising it in your hat). You do seem to be rather accessory heavy today, though. I'm just saying.One of these things is a beautiful, pregnant, glowing supermodel and the other one is no longer recognizable as human.OK, OK, you caught me. I only posted this picture so I could start saying his name again. Cam Gig-a-dent. Cam Gig-a-dent. Cam Gig-a-dent. I love how it just rolls off the tongue. :)When did Mel Gibson start dating the Octo-Mom?

Twitter Shmitter

Let's me get something off my chest: I don't understand Twitter. I don't understand the draw, nor do I have any desire to participate. From what I understand, it's basically like non-stop Status Updates on Facebook. Um, OK. I've got enough of those on FB, why do I need another site to go to? Can anyone please explain the draw? I'm sick to death of hearing about it. Everywhere I look it's twitter this, twitter that, tweet me here, tweet me there. I'm done. I hate it.

I Probably Have The Swine Flu

What an interesting situation going on with the swine flu breakout right now. How do you know that it's the swine flu and not just a yuchy cold/flu? So far nothing in the news I've watched explains the difference, so for all I know I could be walking around with an infestation of swine flu and my nose is going to turn into a snout before we know it (sorry, couldn't resist).

Pinky's Fandance, Wednesday Edition

I saw Paul Giamatti walking down Main Street by himself a few years ago and quickly asked him to get a quick picture. Obviously, he wasn't thrilled about it (I don't really see him being someone who likes all the fame and attention - I'm just saying), but he took the picture and for that I'm grateful. I've seen him several times since then, but I leave him alone now since once was enough. Still, after this picture was taken, I was so excited that I was singing a Paul Giamatti song in my head all day. It went something like this, "I got Paul Giamatti, I got Paul Giamatti." Sorry I can't hum the tune for you. :)

And I Thought He Wanted To Hang Out

Yesterday after work I drove to Fort Union to visit with an old friend from home, Dave. I hadn't seen him in about 14 years and I was excited to hang out with him (after reconnecting on Facebook, of course). Although we'd caught up on the phone last week, he asked me to come by his office because he wanted to show me something after we'd talked about my time in Italy. So, here I go thinking he's found some picture or something cool relating to Italy. Wrong. There I was, sitting in an office, when he starts showing me some Powerpoint presentation on a computer. Suddenly it dawned on me that I was there to be pitched a product. Are you kidding me? I actually said, "Are you pitching me right now?" I couldn't believe it! Talk about luring someone's prey to water and then attacking. Not that what he showed me wasn't cool (it was some sort of travel thing), but come on. I was there to see him, not get a new career. Of course, it was still fun to see him - I just wish I'd had a little heads up! :)

Celebrity Wrap Up - Wednesday Edition

Hello and welcome to today's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up.Wow, Suri Cruise looks remarkably calm to be walking into harm's way with Crazy Pants TC. I can't believe she's not even crying and screaming. I certainly would be!Isn't black supposed to be slimming?I can't decide if Zachary Quinto is trying to look like a rocker from the 80's or Adam Levine? Oh, Lindsay. I realize your clothes are skin-tight to begin with, but foregoing them altogether seems a bit much.Thank you, Zac Efron, for once again proving you do know how to use a brush. Your cleanliness (or appearance thereof) is appreciated.

A Walk in the Park

After work yesterday I finally started back on my afternoon walk in the park. Hooray! How I've missed it. I just love that park so much - plus, they trimmed the area around my beloved flamingos, so I've got an even better view. I love that I can visit my birds while I exercise (is that like killing two birds with one stone? Bad expression in this situation, sorry). Sadly, still no keys, but that's OK (as you'll recall, I lost my keys in one of my last walks of the season last year - I was hoping once everything unthawed and the leaves blew away I might find them again. Alas....not to be). I'm excited to be back in my walking groove! :)

Pinky's Fandance, Tuesday Edition

Camryn Manheim was such a ray of sunshine. Meeting her at Sundance was truly a pleasure. Look how happy and nice she looked. Added bonus: she LOVED my Hello Kitty earmuffs (well, who wouldn't?).

Doubting Pinky

Sometimes I don't know why I can't just accept good things. It's like my mind can't possibly just accept something at face value - it has to think of the worst possible outcome and then muck up the original good deed. Why am I such a Doubting Pinky (or Doubting Thomas, whichever you prefer)? Why can't I just be happy-go-lucky and excited for whatever comes my way? In general I think I'm a somewhat positive person, yet in specific areas (read: relationships), I'm the most Negative Nelly around. Any suggestions?

Name That 80's Icon

Well, perhaps icon is too strong of a word, but I was shocked and horrified to come across this picture. Any guesses?
Hmm, no guesses, huh? I know, it was a hard one! The answer is: Blanche Baker, the big sister of Molly Ringwald on Sixteen Candles. Here's a picture from the movie to help jog your memory.

Celebrity Wrap Up - Tuesday Edition

Hello and welcome to Tuesday's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up.As if SJP's hair wasn't bad enough, now we have to contend with Matthew's hideous sideburns? Why do they look like they're going to the Prom in 1978?Um, is Cameron Diaz wearing a terrycloth shirt?Mary-Kate Olsen seems to be hanging out with a member of Flock of Seagulls. How sweet.When did Sharon Stone become a bobblehead?Hooray! Katie combed her hair and looks alive. Wahoo! :)

Interesting Advertising

I saw this cereal when I was grocery shopping last night and couldn't pass it by without taking a picture of its ridiculous packaging. Good Friends cereal? Really? Am I supposed to see these happy, smiling faces and suddenly decide to bypass my delicious sugary cereal and start eating healthy (read: disgusting) Kashi cereal? Who thought this up? And why are they so happy? Does it make them regular or something? I'd like to know the real stories behind these people - like some big drama behind the scenes. That would rule. Maybe I'd even buy the cereal if I knew some juicy gossip about those so-called happy faces.

Pinky's Fandance, Monday Edition

I love Bobby Cannavale - he was great as Will's boyfriend on Will and Grace and always makes me laugh whenever I see him on a show. I recently checked out his new show, Cupid, and it was pretty cute. If I were into watching new shows right now, I'd totally add it to my list (however, I've still got months and months of shows to catch up on). Anyway, I ran into him on Main St. a few years ago and although he was "in a hurry" (aren't they all?), he was nice enough to stop and take a picture with The Pink.

Monday Monday

Seriously, how can it be Monday again? Why does the weekend blow by in the blink of an eye, while Monday drags on and on? I'm still grumpy. My mood improved slightly yesterday, but I was woken up last night by annoying neighbors and have had a headache ever since. Not a good start to the week.

Celebrity Wrap Up - Monday Edition

Hello and welcome to Monday's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up.Brad Pitt's been wearing that hat for like a year straight, right? Do you think he sleeps in it? It must be disgustingly dirty.Must refrain from obvious "Which one is the dog?" joke. Must refrain. Would somebody please let Christina Aguilera know that her bangs are a world of no? Did she let her son cut them or what?Demi Lovato shows us, once again, why wax figurines are terrifying. Step away from the scary wax figure. Step away.Why is J.Lo trying to channel Farrah Fawcett? Is it 1974?

Happy Birthday, Crusty!

I just wanted to send very happy birthday greetings to my good friend Christi Crusty. I hope you have a wonderful day! Love you.
