Newest Addition



Was feeling a bit blue earlier, so I added these fabulous girls to my collection! Yes to be fair, I just got an awesome pair of purple and pink strappy heels, but a girl needs something that goes with everything right? And a new pair of shoes can make even the worst days seem better.

I am so excited~ Aren't they beautiful?

31 Souls Lost Golden Gate Bridge 2009



http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/blogs/inmarin/detail?&entry_id=55733

An article came out today about the 31 suicides that were recorded last year on the Golden Gate Bridge.

As some of you know, I spoke to a woman moments before she took her own life in Nov 2009. After wandering around on the bridge for over an hour in a daze, I left knowing that I could not save her. It haunted me that entire week. I went back to the bridge almost every day and for what reason, I can not say. I think about that girl and what she must have been feeling and how I was powerless to stop her. Some nights I don't sleep because I hear her crying. I see her face. I hear the helicopters and coast guard boats like it is happening all over. My dreams are more vivid than what I saw in reality.

I have been saddened by it ever since. I have guilt, pain, remorse, and tears for her. I wanted to volunteer for suicide prevention, but was told that after witnessing something like that, there is a waiting period to get over it. I will never get over it.

I also was in the middle of writing a novel about the Golden Gate Bridge-fiction-but yet, truthful.

Last night Nip Tuck aired a new episode and several people asked me if I wrote it. Oddly enough the patient survived a jump from the bridge. Some of his facts were off, but it was awful watching him climb over the side and jump. A place that I have stood and experienced someone's last moments. I didn't write it, but was pleased to see the situation addressed in a popular show.

I got caught up in writing a new spec pilot for a cop drama in Dec and Jan, but after seeing this episode and reading this article, I know that I have to get this book published, because in the light of a fictional story, there is a dark, tragedy that happens far too often.

I Can't Believe She Wore That!

Kate Winslet is the perfect example of what to wear and how to always look elegant even in pissing down rain! She looked gorgeous as ever in this simple black dress on Sunday at the Golden Globes-the rest of these gals-not so much!
Sandy's dress was a beautiful color and it would have been amazing had it not been for the bottom half. The dress looked like the designer just tossed extra material on as an after thought. What woman, even Sandra Bullock, wants extra on her hips?
Oh Fish Face Zellwegger, tisk tisk-look at this dress? You look about 90 years old from the waist up and at the bottom you are sporting the Elvira look, which to be honest, doesn't look good on anyone, especially your 5 foot nothing frame-but you are living with Bradly Cooper, so I guess you can wear whatever you want, but you should try to look pretty just for yourself. If I was in this dress, I would be making the fish face as well.
Cloe is the worst offender, she looked like Big Bird when she got up on stage to accept her award and she even ripped the bottom of this monstrosity as she made her way to the podium. Honestly, did she not even look in a mirror?
I also believe that super white women with blond hair can not pull of "nude" dresses. They look washed out and it just doesn't work. I almost wonder why they are even made anymore. Another example is darling Drew.
Drew Barrymore is Hollywood and we all grew up with her as she grew up in front of the camera, but this dress does not work. She looked washed out and what the hell is that thing on her hip? It looks like a caterpillar decided to hitch a ride to the show. I love Drew, she is amazing and I was so sad to see her wearing this.

Angry At All The Anger

I don't understand people and have to say something about it.

A) If you have been out of work for months and months and finally got a great paying job with benefits, is it really necessary to bitch and moan because you don't get MLK day off? Really? Really! You should be thankful that you have a job when so many others don't and stop complaining because that job actually require you work.

B) It is not George Bush's fault that there was a quake in Haiti and it is getting down right crazy out there in liberal land. I am not a fan of GW and never voted for him and def. am left sided, but come on people, get some perspective. You are making the rest of us look crazy. GW had nothing to do with the quake and he is trying to help. I have to wonder, is it his fault you are a total and complete asshole?

C) Katrina was a tragedy no questions asked, but it was five years ago. Stop bitching about it and how much you have suffered and refusing to help Haiti, and even worse telling others they shouldn't because "no one helped Katrina" Shut the F up you cry baby. The Red Cross sure did help Katrina as did many other places. Seriously? You actually think people in Haiti now deserve to suffer because you lost your job 5 years ago?

D) President Obama is NOT a Fascist or a Communist, please buy yourself a dictionary and or take some classes before you start spouting this shit, because you really aren't making a point, and rather are showing how completely stupid you are.

I try to be upbeat and happy, but these angry individuals that have to whine and complain and make complete and ridiculous arguments that they have no knowledge of on a daily basis get on my last nerve.

If you don't have something positive to say, shut the F up! I am just sayin'

Is There a Patch To Stay Vegetarian?



OMG! I have been vegetarian a few times in my life, and usually it is pretty easy. Last May I started again and it was okay, then slowly at the end of summer I started having the occasional steak, and then in late October due to being out of work and honestly not having the money for meat, I became vegetarian again.

I have been reading books like The Kind Diet, and magazines and am trying my best to follow a healthy diet.

I have lost 18 lbs-wow I didn't even know I was 18 lbs overweight!-I feel better, I am happier, I have more energy and all together for me, this has been a great choice.

Today I was down in L.A. on Wilshire by E! and there was a burger truck and it smelled sooooooooooooooooooooooo good. I walked by it a couple times, just to get a whiff of the smell. Flashbacks of the show Friends and Chandler trying to quit came into my head, or remember in Sex & The City when Carrie ended her date early to have a quick drag? This is how I feel.
I kissed a guy who had eaten a steak and I swear that even though he had brushed his teeth and had alcoholic beverages, I could still taste it.

The way I see it, smoking is bad, meat is bad...they are both hard to get over, so I wonder when the hamburger patch will get invented.

As well, as the torture of smelling a grill outside, or a steak being cooked, walking past a burger joint, I keep getting coupons from all my favorite steak places around Los Angeles, it is like they know and are doing it on purpose!

I am just sayin' this is harder than it should be-all the be healthy, thin and gorgeous!

Let the Racism Begin on a Global Scale

I'm so disgusted by the news today about airline/airport security.
This is from an article I read this morning:

People who are from or traveling from or through these countries are supposed to have full-body pat-downs and have their carryon luggage checked: Cuba, Iran, Sudan, Syria, Afghanistan, Algeria, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, and Yemen.

The U.S. has designated Cuba, Iran, Sudan and Syria to be state sponsors of terrorism. The other 10 countries are considered "of interest." People from there or traveling through there could also be subject to full-body scanning and explosive detection technology as part of their screening.

Okay, I have to say that this pisses me off for many reasons. I am all for airline security being raised, but seriously? The guy who had explosives on Christmas did it through Schipol/Amsterdam, Pan Am flight 103-the bomb went on at Heathrow/London and the Sept 11th terrorists got on board at Logan/Boston.

The point is, so now we are going to isolate and make the middle east countries hate us even more. If there is going to be extra scanning on people flying to the US, it should be at ALL MAJOR AIRPORTS! Especially since the major problems we have had have actually come from other countries, including our own.

I hate profiling for many reasons, the biggest being that it doesn't really help and usually makes things worse for the innocent people flying who just happen to be from a certain background. This is no different than what England did to the Irish in the 70s and 80s, except it is on a global scale.

One of the times I flew through Heathrow was the week they found out that the bomb for that Pan Am flight was put on in Heathrow and EVERYONE went through hours of security, everyone, not just middle eastern passengers and that was fine by me. We were all searched. That is how it should be, or trust me, someone like Timothy McVey is going to do some serious damage.

I was flying from Italy and through Heathrow and was late getting on board the plane to the US, my connection from Milan was late and I was running through the airport and I almost didn't get on, because they searched me like crazy and even though I was, "I'm American" they did NOT care and all airports should use the standards that Heathrow uses.

I have also been in LAX and the beepers have gone off like crazy and I have heard on more than one occasion, "It's okay, you're white!" which terrifies me to the very core.

Are people really so ignorant that they think that only middle eastern folks will join a terrorist organization? Or that no white person would ever want to do something so horrible? Again, I mention Tim McVey.

I am just sayin' this is asking for more trouble and isolating people even more. It is amazing that we never learn.

Farewell David Tennant!



Who cares about Charlie Sheen's umpteenth divorce, or the fact that Matthew McConaughey is torturing his second child with an even stupider name than the first, when our Dr. Who is leaving?

David Tennant the Scottish born actor says goodbye to one of his most loved roles and passes it onto Matt Smith. I think Matt will do a good job, but it may be like Bond, it is all a matter of taste, who you saw first and all that kind of silly stuff that causes fans to argue and blog about such things.

David will always be Dr. Who to me!
