Top Five LOL Cats of the Day

Listen to This: Beautiful Trauma (Pink)

Pink was the musical guest on SNL last weekend and about a minute into the title track of her new album Beautiful Trauma, I bought the entire album. That's how good the song was. Normally I'd peruse the rest of the songs before purchasing, but this was too good not to own immediately.
The first two tracks are my favorite so far, but she's always amazing. Her voice is soothing and wonderful. Way to go, Pink! You rock!

Pinky's Fandance - Andrea Savage

Not too long ago, Keith and I were watching the hilarious film Sleeping with Other People (which, if you haven't seen it, please rectify that immediately) and noticed this force of nature who stole every scene she was in named Andrea Savage. I mean, there's a scene at the end during the credits where they basically just let Andrea and Jason Mantzoukas riff for about ten minutes that was pure comedy gold. We were dying of laughter and must have watched it several times just to try and catch all their rapid fire jokes. 
Wanting to know more about her, I started following Andrea on Twitter and started seeing all these mentions about a TV show called I'm Sorry. I had no idea what that was (since it's on TruTV and that's not typically on my radar), but people seemed to love it, so I decided to check it out. INSTANTLY I was hooked. Like, I couldn't love a show more. 
Keith followed suit and we pretty much both developed a huge girl comedy crush on Andrea Savage. I swore if I ever saw her name on a list, I'd have to try and meet her. On Wednesday night, she was on a panel at a place I'd never been to before. Huge kudos to Keith who didn't feel well and still braved a new location with me to try and meet the queen herself. Had I known we could attend the event, we totally would have, but by the time we realized we could go, it was sold out. So, we hung outside hoping to see her arrive, but the location was a lot more challenging than expected and we figured we'd missed her. Keith had walked over to the car to feed the meter and then she surprisingly showed up so he missed the whole thing. Boo! His dream is to just sit down with her and pick her brain on how she got her show made (hear that, Universe? You can make that happen, right??). Andrea could not have been sweeter. She introduced herself (I love that) and was just as cool as she is onscreen. Love her even more now! Thanks, Andrea! You're awesome! We can't wait for the next season of I'm Sorry. It really is one of the best shows on TV.

Way to Go, Blue!

Congratulations to the Dodgers on taking the pennant! 
World Series, here we come!

Celebrity Wrap Up - Sunday Edition

Hello and welcome to Sunday's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up.
While I've always known about Heidi's love for Halloween, isn't it a bit early for big balloons? They'll be deflated long before the day comes around....
I love how dramatic this picture looks with the rain.
Did she just walk out of the '70s?
Lookin' good, Ben!
Dear Mandy - Please don't ever do your hair like this again, kthxbye.

Top Seven Postsecrets of the Day


Pinky's Fandance - Rhys Darby

As a huge fan of Flight of the Conchords, finally getting to meet Rhys Darby (who plays Murray) was a huge thrill! Eternal gratitude going out to my awesome and patient husband who went with me on the adventure (and found us the most prime parking spots in all of LA). 
I've actually been dying to meet Rhys for the longest time, as I'd met the other cast members from the show long ago. Rhys was the only one who eluded me, but finally I had my chance!
He was exactly as I'd hoped he'd be....such a funny guy! Plus, I could listen to that accent all day long.

Throwback Serious Face Keith

I'm pretty sure this promotional shot was for an after school special about drunk driving called Over the Limit.
Serious face is serious.

Celebrity Wrap Up - Saturday Edition

Hello and welcome to Saturday's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up.
This seems rather twee, doesn't it?
Is she wearing a waist trainer on the outside? I'm confused.
Does Nicole's head keep getting bigger, or is her body getting smaller? I can't decide.
This might be the best she's ever looked (take that, Ben).  
Another lover of the Solid Gold dancers!

Top Five LOL Dogs of the Day

The Goldbergs: 100 Episode Celebration

Last night we had the good fortune of attending the 100th episode celebration for The Goldbergs held at the Paley Center. As you know, it's one of our favorite shows, so we were super excited to attend.
Initially, the entire cast (except for Jeff Garlin) was supposed to be there, but due to unforeseen circumstances, only a few cast members joined the panel. That was a bit of a bummer, but the panel was still incredibly entertaining. 
 I should have taken a picture of the magnets I made for the cast - I even got to pass them out onstage!
Lea Thompson directed the 100th episode, so she joined the conversation, as well.
Aside from George Segal (who, sadly, couldn't make it) the person we were most excited to see was Adam F. Goldberg himself.
Keith had never met him, so it was awesome getting a chance to talk with him after the panel. Such a great guy!

Pinky's Fandance - Wendi McClendon-Covey

How great is Wendi McClendon-Covey on The Goldbergs? Well, really, how great is she in everything? This gifted, hysterical comedic actress never ceases to crack me up.
An added bonus? She's also super fan friendly and as sweet as can be! Love her.

The Littlest Visitor

Yesterday I came home to find this little cutie running around our front porch area. If you look really closely, you'll see Mr. Squirrel.
Mr. Squirrel thought he was doing a bang up job of hiding from Sammy, but, alas, Sammy could smell something was amiss in the area and then the chase was on. Alas, despite his best efforts, Sammy did not end up victorious.

Celebrity Wrap Up - Friday Edition

Hello and welcome to Friday's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up.
Why would anyone leave the house wearing this? It's not even Halloween yet.
Was this a pajama party?
Did she just wake up?
I'm confused by the front tail she's rocking, as well as her hair. Did she cut it?
