We Have a "Situation"...

David Hasselhoff, Bristol Palin, and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino will compete for the mirror ball trophy.

OMG~ NO WAY! I was joking last week when I said the following: Who is next, the Situation?
You have got to be friggen' kidding me? I must have some serious powers in the universe.

*******Okay from now on I am going to repeat the following : Ryan Murphy is hiring me to write on Glee. I am working on Glee. I am the next staff writer for Glee. I am winning an Emmy for my episode of Glee. It would really be awesome if you could all join in! Just say it once a day or so.*********

I apologize to the universe if I somehow made this happen, and I apologize to the dancers. I am not sure what will be worse, Bristol or the "Situation".UGH

Back FROM the Future!

A would-be saboteur arrested today at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland made the bizarre claim that he was from the future. Eloi Cole, a strangely dressed young man, said that he had travelled back in time to prevent the LHC from destroying the world.

Read more:

OMG! How do we really know this man is not from the future? I mean, anything is possible, isn't it?
I am sure he is just a wack job, but I love love love the idea that it could happen. How do we know for 100% that is can't?

If Dr. Brown can make a car into a time machine, why not this bloke?

In the real Flash Forward the future was controlling the past. We have seen it in the Time Machine, Terminator, so why not in real life? Don't they say, life imitates art?

I am going to embrace the idea and I hope Mr. Cole rids the world of Mountain Dew forever!

and I am definitely re writing my Bog Bang Theory to include this in a discussion! or I will just write a whole new one! Hilarious!

You Are Lucky To Have a Job, Now, Shut up!

People that complain all the time about having a job really bug me, especially when they grossly exaggerate the hours they are working-news flash about a million people would switch places with you!

I don't understand this type of behavior. I really don't.

Also the ones that if they work like 30 seconds past their normal leave time-you would think they pulled an 80 hour work week the way they moan and whine.

These same folks are the ones who leave work early, take a long weekend every other week, and generally use any excuse in the book not to work.

It must be really sad to hate your job and your life so much.

I am just sayin'

Okay, so if you are on my Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, or know me in real life, you know I am not a huge fan of the hot weather, and I live in Los Angeles-or the Valley actually-it is hot hot hot, and what is worse, the SMOG! That said, I do love this city and here are some things I absolutely love: (In no particular order)

1. The Stairs off San Vicente

2. All the Farmer's Markets every Sunday-especially the Hollywood one and Studio City one.

3. Runyon Canyon

4. Century City Mall

5. Beverly Hills

6. Palisades Park

7. LAX

8. The Grove

9. Award Shows

10. Sunset Blvd.

11. Mulholland Drive

12. Manhattan Beach

13. Uncle Bill's

14. The Sports Club L.A.

15. Beverly Glenn

16. Pacific Coast Hwy

18. Duke's

19. The Studios

20. The Entertainment Industry

AND we also have: two major league baseball teams, two hockey teams, two basketball teams, Disneyland, Magic Mountain, beaches galore-for every type of person.

I even love the freeways, I love the different burbs-okay the whole place is a big series of burbs, but I like how they are all different. I love Pasadena, Montrose, and all the trees in the hills (when they aren't burning)

So okay, I love L.A.! If it weren't so friggen' hot, it would be perfect!

Thought for the day

if you have to; search for, join online dating, or use any matchmaking service to find your 'soul mate', is he/she really a soul mate? Just saying.

My thought for the night.

I wonder who writes the "I know I just got booted but life is awesome, & I'm so thankful for this opp" ...silver lining-Pollyanna crap for Top Chef and Project Runway-because I would really love to see just one of them say, "this effing sucks, I am so upset, my life/career is over"-you know tell how they really feel.

Day One Officially of Detox

Well I wouldn't call it a 'detox' in that I am not planning on starving myself or putting maple syrup into a blender with garlic and living off that for a month, but I am changing my diet completely. I started about a week and a half ago by cutting my calories in half-yes I would like to lose a few pounds, wouldn't most of us?-and now I am going back to vegetarian eating 99% of the time. Why? Because I feel better when I eat vegetarian, period. I am starting by doing a full week of nothing but fruits and veggies, that is it. I will do a vegetable and fruit juice twice a day-made at home with my juicer-and then veggies for the rest of the meals. I did it yesterday-had a few pieces of bread-but over all have tons of energy and already feel lighter and healthier.

I am also sick of people constantly trying to shove tons and tons of vitamins down my throat. I NEVER get sick and by never I mean, NEVER. I haven't been on antibiotics in about 15 years and haven't had a cold since I was working on El Dorado in 1999, which only lasted two days. I have never taken vitamins and this year when I started, actually all my levels were off-because what they don't tell you, is that if you mix them wrong, you can actually deplete stuff out of your body. UGH-what is the point?

My roommate is ALWAYS sick, in fact I have known people with full blown AIDS that get sick less than she does and that is no joke. I have never met someone who literally gets everything under the sun. It is like living with Doc Holiday. Cough cough cough, sneeze sneeze sneeze-always always sick and she takes tons of vitamins, but what she doesn't do, is eat healthy and she drinks soda everyday. I think that people are under the impression, it doesn't matter what you eat as long as you shove down pills all the live long day. I am just sayin' I am 12 years older than her and never sick. I am not trying to be insulting to her in any way, because she is a dear friend to me, but it is just the facts. I am never sick, she always it. I don't take tons of vitamins and she does. I pretty much live on fruits and veggies, and even when I eat meat-I eat it with a salad of veggies. That with exercise helps a lot!

So here I am, official day one of the new me!

Can't wait! Healthier lifestyle, here I come!

Friggen' LOVE Joan Holloway (Harris)

Look at her~ OMG these photos do not do her justice. Her make-up is flawless, her outfits are flawless, her attitude is flawless. I seriously love this character so much! I am inspired to do some drawings (just add it to the gazillion writing projects I have going and work)...I will do it. I LOVE HER!


I have to say-Men are you crazy wanting a skinny bitch when you can have someone like this?

Finally, A Great Question~

Tonight I had the pleasure of meeting Jennifer Weiner up close and personal, in real life~we were already Facebook and MySpace friends, but you know, that just isn't the same. As one of my fav authors, who actually inspired me to write my first book, told from a very candid and real point of view, it was great to hear her speak. Her voice in her novels is great, but in person she has so much vivacious, fun energy that even a gentleman walking by decided to stay for the whole reading.

This is actually what this blog is about...this man.. who I don't know and will probably never see again has made it into my blog.

Are you curious?

Are you dying to know what happened?

To tell the story properly and to have you understand why I was so happy with him I have to tell a short story about how the Q & A sessions after any writer, (actor, director, producer, plumber, mailman-okay maybe not the last two, but I am just seeing if you are paying attention), usually drives me COMPLETELY INSANE!

It is always the same questions: What is your process? How did you get started? How do I break in? What about this or that, or whatever...really boring people. What is worse than the same stupid questions-yes there is a such thing as a stupid question-is that there is always at least one, if not more, person that does the, what-I-like-to-call-ass kissing-bragging-portion of the question which usually goes something like this.

"OMG, first of all, I have to say that I LOVE you, you are a genius and I just love...(insert show, book, etc here) and I am in the middle of a huge deal right now with my screenplay that I came in 72nd in three contests, and everyone loves it and tells me that I am also a genius".....

Seriously? After all that you ask about process? Hrm? Are you really a writer?

But I digress.

Tonight was THEE BEST QUESTION in the history of questions.

I may not have it exactly as it was said, but what I am about to say is the truth and hilarious.

Jennifer was answering questions and this older man, old 70 or young 80 in coveralls-yes I mean overalls, white hair and all-stuck out like a sore thumb in a room of women, so I give him credit, raised his hand and what he said was this (or something like it)

"I wasn't going to stay more than 5 minutes, but you are so engaging, funny and (some other great compliment here), that I decided to stay."

Jennifer, "Thank you."

and then. . .

"I was wondering if you would ever consider having an inappropriate one night stand with a man old enough to be your father?"

OMG hilarious!!!

He was sweet, but it was too funny and by far the funniest thing I have heard in a long time.
