Be Back Soon! WRITING

Like Carrie, I have been sitting at my desk writing, writing, writing, writing! and then there were shoes! LOL. Really been swamped, thanks for checking back in. More blogs and my review of Sex & The City 2 coming up!

This Is Not A Health Drink!

Today Yahoo News is featuring more of their "Eat this not that" lists, and usually it is so painfully obvious to anyone with a brain, that I can't even believe people still eat this crap-especially that they think it is healthy. Here are some examples from Men's Health.

Worst Frozen Fruit Drink
Krispy Kreme Lemon Sherbet Chiller (20 fl oz)
980 calories
40 g fat (36 g saturated)
115 g sugars (29 teaspoons of the stuff!)

Sugar Equivalent: 16 medium-size chocolate eclairs

Imagine taking a regular can of soda, pouring in 18 extra teaspoons of sugar, and then swirling in half a cup of heavy cream!

Now if Krispy Kreme is in the title, how could anyone think this crap is healthy? Really people? Use your brain!

Worst “Health” Drink in America
Smoothie King Peanut Power Plus Grape (large, 40 fl oz)
1,498 calories
44 g fat (8 g saturated)
214 g sugars (a mind-blowing 54 teaspoons' worth!)

Sugar Equivalent: 20 Reese's Peanut Butter Cups!

I don't know what a "Smoothie King&quo…

LOST! Did You Enjoy The Ride?

LOST & some of my thoughts on the series finale!




Wow! Everyone and their dog are talking about LOST today. People are even arguing the ending-just like Lord of The Rings and or Harry Potter. At the end of the day does it really matter if they were in a sideways world or purgatory? The point was that they couldn't move on until they worked through their own bullshit, some took longer than others.

If you go back to season one when Damon, er. . . I mean Boone, gets killed, it makes sense because he was the most mentally adjusted character thus far.

Locke needed to walk, he needed to go on that walk-about, so his after life, sideways life, or purgatory would definitely be being the strongest person on the island. He needed that to move on.

Got an issue? Here's a tissue! Jack Shepard!

Jack had more issues than most shrinks see in their lifetime, but the biggest issue he had was his relationship with his father. He had to work on that in order to move on. If you look at the relation…

Books? or Shoes?

Who says that smart girls can't love shoes as well? You know the stereotype we all have about girls that read? They can't be too concerned with looks as they always have their heads in a book! This is so not true!

I love to read. In fact I hardly ever leave the house without at least two books in hand. I like to have one classic and one fun, bouncy chick-lit just in case. Sometimes I am in the mood for Ludlum, Clancy or even Stephen King-so I carry books with me. Now since Nook, I always have something to read without the bulk of books in my bag, but that doesn't mean my wardrobe is suffering. In fact, it means I can carry smaller, cuter purses and bags! (I think B&N should know they are helping us fashionista readers look better.)
I love shoes. I do. I am not sure when the addiction began, but I love them. Nothing makes me feel better than putting on a gorgeous pair of shoes! I can sort of blame Carrie Bradshaw-who is a fictional character from Candice Bushnell's no…

Degrees to Get Your Hired? Don't You Want More?

"Life's a gift and I don't intend on wasting it."

I keep seeing these ads on my Yahoo and Hotmail pages that are linked to articles; Get a Degree That Will Get You Hired-1o jobs that need people now. . .blah blah blah. They are all the same.

Here is my question to you. Don't you want more out of life than just being hired? What is wrong in the world today that just having a job is enough? I have been out of work many times since I choose to work in a creative, unsteady-you'll always be poor-it isn't a real job-career, so I understand the need for work, anything that will get you by. But to set the goal to just have a job that you won't lose? That makes me sad.

In fact this is the most depressing thing I have read all year. It is asking us to settle for something less than extraordinary and why would we do that?

Do you want to work your whole life in a job you hate and on your death bed have nothing but 40 years of misery behind you? I mean, isn't yo…

OUCH! My Tire!

OUCH!!! I was driving down the 210 when all of a sudden I accidentally ran over this huge nail and POW!

Thankfully my owner knew how to get me to safety and no one was hurt. I love her so much, she always takes good care of me.

I am all better now, resting with two new tires-because my mechanic didn't want me to be unbalanced and wobbly when driving.

It hurt and it scared me~ I wish people would be more careful with the crap they leave on the roads.

Perfect Los Angeles Lunch!

Welcome to Los Angeles and if you don't know by now, two of the hottest rages around town are: juicing greens and cupcakes!

I am starting to feel like a real Angeleno - it's only been a decade - I had a healthy, and yummy, Kale, Mustard Green, Spinach, Celery, Cucumber, & Apple juice, went for an hour hike in 85 degree weather and then enjoyed a yummy carrot cupcake when I returned home.

The cupcake is totally healthy-Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Icing. In other words, Carrots and Cheese. Vegetable and Dairy.

After working over 100 hours last week, my eyes have been a little sore, so the carrot is purely for my eyes. I didn't enjoy it at all! (So not true) and the Cheese-well that is just smart-calcium-hello?

If I was in New York, I probably would have had a bagel with schmear - Oh. My. God. That actually sounds better than a juice drink- and a pastrami sandwich when I returned from Central Park in stead of Runyon Canyon, and it would be 50 degrees, not 80. . .Wait a minu…

Oh My Gravy!

I have been watching the Amazing Race for 16 seasons and never have I cared so much about the end result as this season.

Jet & Cord are the epitome of gentlemen. They were always kind, always friendly, and they had a great time. It was obvious. I like to think I would be that way, but hey let's be honest here. Traveling, racing around the world, tensions get heated. One million dollars at stake, I may not be, and before you judge, you may not either.

I am a city girl through and through, but I fell in love with these two cowboys! I hope someone offers them a reality show or something. They are truly AMAZING!~

The brothers that actually won were mean spirited, awful guys. Yes it was Dan's dream and that is all find and good until you sink to lower than low levels to move up. They were rude to most of their cab drivers, they were rude to people in the streets, the were rude to contestants, they were rude behind people's backs, and played downright dirty. The only team who b…

iPad is a Computer! Nook is a Reader!

Okay I am probably going to get a slue of nasty emails from the Apple addicts out there, but facts are facts. While the iPad may be a great computer for travel, it is still that, a computer! NOT a reader.

I have no issue with Apple and think if I traveled a lot for work, I would definitely have an iPad, but I already have a Macbook, so what in the world would posses me to get another computer? Mine is small and not much bigger than the iPad and has the added bonus of having a top-hence the word-laptop-and so it is protected. Yes an iPad would be easier at the airport. Okay, I get it.

But for a reader? It is NOT a reader. Yes it does have a reader function available, but it is not a reader. It is still a computer with a back light. Here is what was said about it in PC World:

No Better Than the Nazis!

Why do we kill spider? Because we are afraid. We are afraid of spider because of the way spider looks. Spider has never done anything to us personally, and usually spider minds his, or her own business; and yet we want all spiders gone! We want to kill spider and we don't ever want to see spider again.

We justify this brutal murder with the, "but I am afraid of spiders" so it is okay to kill them.

Hrm? 70 years ago the Germans were afraid of the Jews and didn't like they way they looked. They referred to them as ugly, worthless, rats or insects to be squashed.

So what makes what we do any better?

Poor spider just living his/her life and one day here comes man and man decides that he doesn't like spider so he kills him and all of spider's friends too.

We need to take a step back and learn from our past, killing someone because they are different is wrong. We visit Holocaust museums and weep when Shindler's List is on, but yet we are no better.
