Passive-Aggressive Wednesday

Thanks to Kate for sending a few funny passive-aggressive notes my way today. Here are my Top Three.Add Image

Headache Watch: Day 1,052

Sadly, my headache does not seem to be going away. In fact, it seems to be gaining momentum and soon will occupy my entire being. I realize there's not much you or anyone else can do, but I felt like complaining about it a little more. Tonight we're going out to celebrate Ruthie's birthday, which should be fun. I'm sure I'll be fantastic company with this all-encompassing headache. Ugh. That is all. The end.

Pinky's Fandance, Thursday Edition

Long ago and far away, during my very first year at Sundance, I met David Cross at some random house party. At the time, he wasn't very big, as it was long before Arrested Development (where he played Tobias, the "never nude") and I'd never seen his stand-up comedy act. Since then, especially after being a huge fan of Arrested Development, I've wished that I'd been more on my game then and taken a picture with him.Needless to say, I was thrilled to hear he was coming to SLC for a comedy show, although I wasn't sure if I'd be going. Apparently he also did a meet and greet book signing, but I heard about it too late (curses!). I thought I'd be sleuth and be able to find him around or after the show, but the place he performed at wasn't having any of that.I ended up buying a ticket and watching the show. I did get in trouble halfway through the show for taking a picture with Todd Glass (tomorrow's Fandance feature) and they tried to confiscate my camera. I seriously almost had a heart attack at the thought of being without my camera, since I was on a mission to get a picture with David. Luckily, somehow the guy let the camera slide and after the show I snuck out this secret door and waited for David to come outside (OK, kinda stalkerish, I'll admit). When he did, he was SO nice and cool. Skippy (another photo seeker) made his way back there, as well, so we were both able to get pictures. I'm stoked I was able to find a way to meet him. He cracks me up.

A Visit With Shmeg

With the completion of my latest blanket (applause, applause), I was excited to take it over to Shmegan, as she awaits the birth of her next baby boy. Can you believe she still has a month to go? Sorry, sweetie. I know it's miserable. The funny thing is that we live about five minutes apart and never see each other. So, the other day on Facebook I asked when I could drop off the blanket and she said I had to come see the baby so he could meet his Auntie Pinky. I was like, "Um, you live five minutes away. My coming to visit now does not preclude a visit when the baby is born." Silly girl. Anyway, it was great to see Shmegan and Henry (her four-year-old) and she even made me a yummy grilled cheese for dinner. Yummy delish! :)

Celebrity Wrap Up - Thursday Edition

Hello and welcome to Thursday's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up. I hope Juliette Lewis was just about to sing "Five Little Indians." One can only hope.
Wow, Rumer Willis actually looks somewhat decent. At least I'm not cringing at the sight of her unfortunately shaped face.Why is Shakira wearing a picnic tablecloth? Well, at least Lindsay is wearing a relatively reasonable skirt. Plus, she's not trying to pass those nylons off as pants, so I'm happy.
Janet Jackson is a hot momma. I love this dress on her. Well done.

Top Five LOL Cats of the Day

Bug Spray Hurts My Head

Just so you know: Bug spray, used in copious amounts to kill all the annoying and incessant bugs in my house, equals: WAAAAAA.

Pinky's Fandance - Woulda/Coulda/Shoulda Wednesday Edition

I've been a fan of Kirsten Dunst's since she was in the movie Interview With A Vampire many, many years ago and I was thrilled to hear she directed a short film at Sundance a few years ago. I figured I'd have no problem finding her and always imagined her to be super nice and sweet. Well, that was incorrect. She is neither of those things. I saw her coming down some stairs and walked up to her (mind you, it was only me and her on the stairs - no one else in sight) and asked her for a picture. She said, "Not now, maybe later." Really? Later? Is there really a time in the universe when our paths are going to cross again? Probably not. Big meanie. :(

Hello Kitty Forever

Apparently I'm not the biggest Hello Kitty lover around (well, my obsession is kind of new, so give me time). My friend Marisol sent me a bunch of pictures of the weirdest Hello Kitty memorabilia. Let me just say...WOW. And I thought I was crazy (of course, that's still to be determined....).
This is the cutest thing I've ever seen. Where do I get one??
Oooh, pretty. A Hello Kitty keyboard? Love it!
Now these are super cute. I'd totally learn how to play the guitar if I could use one of these.
Ladies and gentlemen, may I present my dream house....Talk about making your car muffler super cute! But then dirty smoke would come out of it....hmmm...
For the record, I have NEVER been so turned on in my entire life. *Swoon*
A Hello Kitty rifle? Now, that's just wrong. Who could kill anyone with such cuteness?

Celebrity Wrap Up - Wednesday Edition

Hello and welcome to Wednesday's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up. Holy crap, that's a mis-matched couple. I think Ryan Reynolds can fit Scarlett into his pocket and carry her around.
Why, thank you, Hugh, for the cute pink presents. Don't mind if I do.And now modeling the "Hobo Chic" collection, we present the cast of Whip It.Gerard Butler is so adorable, I almost can forgive him for carrying a "murse." Well, almost.
Bradley Cooper - dressed up, or dressed down, you can do no wrong. Yes, I will have your children.

Funny Picture of the Day

Monday Musings

I'm going to tell you this right now: If there ever comes a day when I post an album on Facebook called "My best friend" and in it is a picture of this:

You have my permission to kill me on the spot because my life is over. Seriously. That is just the saddest thing I've ever seen.

Last night I received a "Breaking News" update from E letting me know that one of the stupid K Kardashian girls got married. I'm sorry, how is this breaking news? She's been pimping that wedding out all week and everyone knew it was happening yesterday. Also, I don't care. Must've been a slow news day.

So, one of my friends got a boob job. I'm always fascinated with people who get boob jobs because they always want you to touch them. In fact, they insist. It's very odd to feel up my friends. I'm just saying.

This morning the Talks-A-Lot girl asked someone how he was, to which he replied, "I'm doing well. How are you?" And she had to be a Topper and say, "REALLY well." Now, come on. Is the really even necessary?

Oh, and in case you had any inclination to see either of these movies at the theater, DON'T. Maybe wait for video, but even then I'm not really promising you won't think you just wasted a few hours of your life by watching them. Also bad? Observe and Report (which is on DVD, but I still feel cheated for caring about seeing it at all). Don't say I didn't warn you.

Pinky's Fandance, Tuesday Edition

Last night I went to Wiseguys to see Doug Benson perform. My neighbor went with me, which was nice because I wasn't looking forward to going alone. Movies are no problem, but there seems like something terribly sad about going to a comedy club alone. I don't know why.But, I digress. Doug is SO funny! He was on Last Comic Standing, in the movie Super High Me and is a regular on VH1s Best Week Ever. He cracks me up. I'm so glad I was able to see him perform live. After the show he was in the lobby with his opener and wanted to talk to everyone. So cool.

Productive Pinky

Surprisingly, I had a very productive weekend. I finished a blanket (and got the supplies for the next one, which I've already started), watched some shows, finished my Netflix movies, flipped my mattress, went to the laundromat (ugh), cleaned my house, got the pictures I wanted, made some cards, picked up my Randy Travis tickets, found a hotel in Wendover, went to the Farmer's Market, got a temporary ATM card at the bank, went to a comedy show, went to a movie, and hung out with some friends. Phew! What a mouthful. It felt good to get a bunch of stuff accomplished as the past few months have been spent wasting time and doing not much of anything over at M's. Being busy is, it keeps me from missing anyone of note. Although, I suppose I still do (a wee, wee bit, but it hasn't even been a week - I can't expect miracles overnight, right?). When am I going to be the tough girl who doesn't give a crap and forgets people overnight? How do I learn to do that?

Celebrity Wrap Up - Tuesday Edition

Hello and welcome to Tuesday's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up.What. The. Hell. Is. She. Wearing?!?!
I'll bet in her youth, Christina Aguilera frequented shopping malls dressed in acid washed jeans and really big, ratted hair. Way to show off your best assets, Patricia Arquette. I'm still jealous that you somehow landed Thomas Jane. I love him.I realize Sarah MacLachlan loves animals, but did she have to paste one to the front of her dress? Ick.Brad! Why are you trying to look like a Billy Goat? NOT hot.
