Viva Las Vegas

Tomorrow I will be heading to Vegas for a couple days…nothing like Vegas in the summer; it will be 108 degrees of dry heat…ahhh! It’s so exciting pulling onto the strip when you first arrive, the energy you feel is more then any pink bunny could handle but for me, after 2 nights, it’s then time to get the hell out of Dodge. At first hearing the slot machines is music to your ears but the morning of your checkout it’s more like a dentist’s drill! Your first buffet you may go in for a late lunch (to get the cheaper rate) and stay straight through dinner for the variety of food; last day…gives me a piece of toast because my clothes seem to have shrunk since I arrived. First day people watching might be at the top of my list as entertainment, guessing where they live from their wardrobe has better odds then blackjack; last day the word “hermit” comes to my mind. If you haven’t been…let me be the first to tell you, small doses!

I look forward to my next trip to Vegas which will be in September to see my FAVORITE celebrity…CHER at Caesars Palace!

Unlike Vegas, she is superb at first…and everyday after that!

We interrupt this blog…

To bring you this important newsflash-

 

SURPRISINGLY…after several weeks of silence on the issue of same-sex marriage, Sen. John McCain has made it official. The presumptive Republican nominee for president has endorsed efforts to ban gay marriage in California.             

 

(for anyone new to my site, yes, that was sarcasm)

 

  

Is it possible for me to loathe this man anymore 

Here’s a story…

I know some people say that Hollywood must be running out of new ideas when they do remakes but I personally love them. I remember the feeling I got while I was sitting in the theater and 9 squares appeared on the screen with Marcia, Jan, Cindy, etc; I literally got goose bumps seeing one of my childhood favorite series at the theater! I don’t think the writers are lacking creativity, I think they are going by the old saying “if it’s not broke then don’t fix it” so stick with the hits. The most recent remake is Get Smart…the one part I loved is when he’s walking down the hallway of doors and ends up at the phone booth…ahhh, the memories. So don’t ridicule Hollywood because I’m still waiting for Cameron Diaz to play Jeannie, Jim Carey as Gilligan, Julia Roberts as Mary Tyler Moore and Johnny Depp as Mr. Kotter! Lets keep the 70’s alive…peace out!

(let me know what famous star you would like to see in a show from the past)

When life gives you lemons…

I love good quotes, they make me think and some stay in my mind forever. In case you haven’t gone on my “Quotes” page, I invite you to please share your favorite ones, serious or funny. Let me share some of my favorite ones with you-

“Oh, you hate your job? Why didn’t you say so? There’s a support group for that. It’s called EVERYBODY, and they meet at the bar.”

   -Drew Carey

 

“Be yourself, everybody else is taken.”
-Oscar Wilde

 

“The New York Marathon just gets my hopes up. At first it seems like 20,000 idiots are leaving the city, but then they just make a big loop and come right back.”

– Dr. John Becker (Becker)

 

“Feminism is the radical notion that women are people.”

 ~Cheris Kramarae and Paula Treichler

“You can measure distance by time. “How far away is it?” “Oh about 20 minutes.” But it doesn’t work the other way. “When do you get off work?” “Around 3 miles.”
                            -Jerry Seinfeld

 

Isn’t the ugly dress bad enough…

Sometimes I read things and say to myself “you have got to be kidding” well here is a doozy…bridesmaids pre-nups. Some brides are now asking their bridesmaids to sign a legal document stating things such as:

  • I will take extra care of my hair, skin and nails in the run-up to the wedding.
  • I will not make advances towards any inappropriate male guests attending the reception.
  • I will not remove any item of my Bridesmaid outfit during the reception.
  • I will not attempt to out-do the bride in any way.

These people you ask to stand up for you…aren’t they supposed to be close family or friends, people who you are generally pretty close to and not some loser off the streets? And how come I didn’t read anything about groomsmen contracts…is it because women are more ridiculous when it comes to their wedding then men? All I know is if someone put this contract in front of me to sign, I don’t even know if I would attend this wedding as even a guest. To read the whole contract –

 

 

This town’s not big enough for the two of us!

Chateau La Rue, Fallbrook, CA.

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott B&B

This past weekend I moved to a small town called Fallbrook in California, known to the residents as “The avocado capital of the world”! Then I read in the paper yesterday that Tori Spelling just moved back to Hollywood from her B&B here, damn, I was hoping to have encountered a past 90210 resident. What struck me funny in the article was that they relinquished their option to buy the inn in Fallbrook because they couldn’t swing it financially…was she not mentioned in daddy’s will?? And can you believe they employ no nannies…wow, how do those celebrites do that…actually deal with their kids!Well, according to Wikipedia, these people have homes in Fallbrook- I guess I’ll look for Al…who the heck are half these people?

  • Rita Coolidge
  • Howard Keel
  • Jason Mraz
  • Dave Mustaine
  • Duke Snider
  • “Weird Al” Yankovic
  • Tony Hawk
  • Ronnie Renner                  
  • Goodbye George

    George Carlin died yesterday, I thought he was one of our more funnier comedians. I also moved this past weekend which ties into my favorite George Carlin routine…STUFF! Yes, I moved all my STUFF from one house to another…now their is a place for my STUFF. Watch and enjoy.
