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 ge…

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 sta…

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 oth…

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 st…

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 poin…

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!
