So, apparently there's some big game tomorrow. Can I just say how much I don't care? Granted, while there are many things I do care about in this life, a football game is not one of them. One of my best friends just asked me if I was going to watch and I had to ask her if she'd ever met me before (because, if she had, she'd know the answer to the question). I suppose it was once popular to watch it long ago when you wanted to see the commercials, but now you can just watch them online at a later date, so it makes the entire football game a moot point. I guess I'll have to find other ways to occupy my time. I'm currently sitting in my apartment and thoroughly enjoying myself - the peace and quiet, the ability to walk around in whatever I want, the lack of houseguests. Who would give this up for a football game? That's just crazy talk. :)
I'm not sure if I posted this picture last week or not, but I know I didn't tell the funny story around it. My boys and I had just left a film when we saw Harvey Weinstein (of The Weinstein Company, or Miramax) walking by. I'd seen him at a million festivals, but never spoke to him because, hello, it's Harvey Weinstein. In fact, Pants said that he'd just heard Harvey say to one of his people, "Don't let anybody touch me" as they walked through a crowd. So, I'm not sure why I felt compelled to get a picture with him. Perhaps after all the douchebaggery of some others on Main St. (I'm looking at you, Anthony Kiedis and Carlos), I just wanted to see how spectacular his "No" would be. However, when I asked him, he said, "Yeah, one second" and then walked away. But, as soon as he spoke to someone, he walked back, put his arms out and took a picture with me. The boys were stunned. They're convinced it's my best picture yet (just because of who it is and his poor reputation). I just think it's funny.
Hello and welcome to today's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up. What on earth is Amanda Bynes wearing? Did she forget her pants? Hallelulah - Jake Gyllenhaal FINALLY cut his hair. Hooray! My apologies for the image which is forever burned into my brain, but I couldn't pass up a bikini picture of Anjelica Huston, despite my bleeding eyes. Little does Elmo know the hideous orgasm faces John Mayer makes when he sings. If he knew, he probably wouldn't hang out with him anymore.Did Brooke Shields run out of things to wear and decide to throw on the curtains at the last minute?

Surprisingly, I've been in such a good mood lately that not much has been annoying me, but on any other day, this certificate would definitely come in handy. I love it! What a great idea. I should just start printing them up now. :)
So, I realize we just saw this picture of me and Anthony Edwards (of Top Gun and ER fame) last week, but I wanted to tell you the funny story about the first time I met him. Long ago and far away, I met Anthony Edwards (aka Dr. Mark Greene) at his movie premiere while I was talking to James LeGros. Now, I love ER, and seeing Dr. Greene just thrilled me to no end. This was, of course, before I was really on my celebrity-picture-getting game, so at that time I was happy to take pictures of them, not necessarily with them (what kind of a chump was I? All those lost opportunities. Sigh....). Anyway, when I saw him, what I meant to say was, "I love you on ER" but for whatever reason an erroneous pause was placed in between "I love you" and "on ER." Needless to say, he looked at me like I was the biggest freak alive. Nice. Luckily this time our time together was much better spent. :) And I don't think I accidentally pledged my love to him (again).
Last night at bowling I was given a fancy bowling patch. I'm not really sure what it's for - is it because I bowled a game over 160, or because I've bowled 160 games? I didn't see anyone else getting these festive badges (although, I have been gone for two weeks and might've missed out). What does one do with a bowling patch? I suppose I could sew it to my bowling bag, but it's my Hello Kitty bowling bag and way too cute to mess up with a patch. Hmmm. I'll have to think about it. My friend Laurie also brought me a super cute bling bling flamingo (thank you, Lar!!). I think it's an ornament, but I'd like to make it into a necklace and wear it all the time. I'm crazy like that, you know. Don't think I won't do it.
Good morning and welcome to today's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up.I'm completely enthralled with Dita Von Teese. She's just such a beautiful little doll. I kinda want to put her in my pocket and play dress up with her and Ken.Is Rachael Ray trying to look like a muppet? Someone needs to tell her to never make that face again. Come to think of it, I've probably mentioned it before. Get with it, girl.Oh, well, of course. Whenever I'm wondering who'd be the foremost authority on football, Faith Hill always springs to mind.Is Renee Zellweger unaware that it's January in New York? She'll catch her death. And what's with the pursed lips? It's not sexy, honey, it's annoying. Knock it off.Do you think Jennifer Lopez rolls over at night, sees her husband, and screams bloody murder? She had Ben Affleck in the palm of her hand and she gave it all up for this? I will never understand her.

I just received a super cute little gift from my friend (and co-worker) in Chicago. It's an adorable "Drama Queen" mug and a flamingo ornament for my tree. I love it! However, I'm starting to notice a little trend here. Another drama queen reference? Does that mean it's true?
In other news, we finally resumed our weekly dinner at Cindy Ree's last night (even though McH and Ruthie ditched out). It was fun, even though McP had just gotten some shots and was pretty tired. I can't believe how big she looks. Doesn't it look like she's grown a foot or two? Perhaps I'm exaggerating....wait. Who, me?
My friend at work let me borrow the soundtrack from Some Kind of Wonderful (yes, I realize this movie is not current or up-to-date by any means, but it's definitely an 80's classic). Can I just say how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE it?!?!! How have I been missing these songs all these years? Especially that amazing song which plays when Eric Stoltz kisses his BFF - it's amazing (and called "She Loves Me" by Stephen Duff, in case you were wondering). I'm so excited for this new discovery. New (even new that is old) music makes me happy.
Today's episode of Pinky's Fandance is dedicated to my friend Heidi (of Heidi and Hiba fame, not McH), as she's a *wee* bit in like with Mr. Jason Ritter (who has got to be the nicest celebrity on earth). I first met Jason in 2003 and have seen him a few times since. Every time he's just as nice as nice can be - he rides the shuttles, is always happy to pose for pictures with fans, and is as down to earth as anyone you'd meet. I love him. What a sweetheart. The first time I met him was right after his dad (John Ritter) had passed away and I told him I was sorry to hear about his dad. I swear I almost started crying (yes, I'm a total baby). He seemed genuinely touched, though. But, then again, that's the type of cute boy he is.
OK, I think I've finally figured it out. I need to get out of my head and stop the madness. Why overanalyze everything? Why not just enjoy the ride? Things are good; no reason to rock the boat, right? I need to pull it together. Worrying like a crazy person does not help anything, in fact, it makes it worse. I'm just going to pull up my boot straps and be a big girl who doesn't fret over every little word and sentence uttered. I can do that, right? You believe me? :)
Good morning and welcome to today's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up.Does anyone else remember once upon a time when Mickey Rourke starred in 9 1/2 Weeks and was yummy on a stick? Yeah, me neither. Sweetheart, I don't care how many times you go to rehab or how much weight you lose, you were still hit with the ugly stick so hard upon birth that you may never recover.How stinking cute is the pic of Brad Pitt and his mini-me, Knox? Of course the picture in the middle is a *wee* bit doctored up, but it cracked me up. Apparently this is a singer named Lady Ga-Ga. Does she know she left her house in a bra and a beige Hefty Cinch Sack? Should someone tell her?Egads! When did Harry Potter get bitten by a werewolf? My eyes are bleeding.

Oh, look. It's douchebags on parade. Congratulations to Ashton "I'm too good to take a picture with anyone" Kutcher and Anthony "I thank you, but no" Kiedis on winning the oh-so-coveted Sundance Douchebag 2009 award. They are closely followed, of course, by Carlos from Desperate Housewives,Slash from Guns and Roses (I didn't even want his stupid picture, but he should have stopped), and Denise "I'll take a picture with you on the way out" (but didn't - that LIAR!!) Richards.
Yes, douchebaggery was in full effect at Sundance this year. Hopefully next year they'll just stay home and stop abusing the common folk.
The more I date someone, the more of a special-needs kid I seem to feel like. Did I ride the short bus of relationships to school? Why am I such a spazz? Last week I saw Trucker at Sundance. Yeah, that one. Remember him? I'll admit I could've been nicer (but I was busy and we ended a long time ago - so what if this was the first time we'd seen each other since we broke up....). Last night Stalker stopped by my place when 28 was over. Um, hello clash of the boys (can you say awkward?!?!). What is wrong with me? Why can't I just relax? I've finally found someone I like enough to not want to be dating a million people and all I do is create problems in my head. Drama drama drama. Is it real or imagined? When does one ever calm down and stop imagining such drama? When can I relax? I hate this. I keep finding things that *could* be wrong instead of just enjoying the time we have together. Why is it impossible for me to just enjoy the wave? Will I ever just relax? Why did I give up my mancation?
Ever since he starred as the sweet and endearing Lloyd Dobler on Say Anything, I've had a crush on John Cusack. So, when I found out he'd be at Sundance a few years ago, I almost lost my pink-loving mind. His movie premiered at 5 p.m. on Saturday and I basically camped out at the theater all day to be sure I got a ticket and was sitting in the front row (which means I passed up prime celebrity stalking, er pictures, on Main Street - on the first Saturday of the Festival. That's like the best day ever, so you know my love for John is deep and true.)Sadly, while it's true I got a picture with him, he was not as sweet and endearing as Lloyd Dobler. In fact, he was the opposite of Lloyd. He was surly, curt, and kind of rude. In fact, in this picture above he's counting down, "Three-two-one, take your picture" (yes, that's a direct quote). My friend Jared also got a picture with him and he looks far more annoyed in that one. But, he did take the picture, so I should be happy, right? After meeting so many douchebags at Sundance this year (I'm looking at you, Carlos from DH and Anthony Kiedis), I should be happy for small favors.
Hello and welcome to today's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up.OMG - I am DYING at the beauty of that child. Vivienne is such a cutie - she looks just like Shiloh (yeah, so I know all the Jolie-Pitt's kids names, so what? Don't judge me.)No, this is not a random homeless person walking the streets. It's the Academy Award nominated used-to-be-actor, Joaquin Phoenix. Wow. Hard times when one leaves the acting world. Yikes.Holy crap. TC is so desperate for America to love him again, he's decided to make a play to be the next Bachelor. Nice try, TC. We still hate you.Um, Eva? Between the extra large bag and strangling scarf, I'm afraid your accessories are going to swallow you whole. You know, for someone who pimps herself out as a hair color spokesperson, Beyonce sure has some tacky looking hair color. What color is that exactly? Not Even Close To Being Natural Orange?
