another celebrity photo

I was cleaning up my hard drive, and found this picture of me with colin farrell from a couple of years ago. I was working as a dresser for funny girl and he showed up just to hang backstage. he posed for pictures with all of us and was such a good sport, even though he’s not really smiling.

the picture is low resolution, but if you look closely, you’ll notice how hung he is. it’s safe for work, but I’m just linking to it rather than posting it to build suspense. go here.

well that figures

today I piddled around way too long and it was pretty late once I started getting ready for work. in the interest of time, I didn’t do much–threw a clip in my hair, rushed on the make-up, and put on jeans, a hoodie, and sneakers. I look like a slob, really.

when I toil over getting ready, with every hair curled and perfectly in place, fabulously applied make-up, and clothes nicely ironed, generally looking in such a way that would invite compliments, I go unnoticed.

but someone just told me I look cute today.


this past weekend I gave my sister the best hand-me-down yet. as with those of our childhood, I had outgrown it. for one thing, it was only 12 inches. plus, the speed seemed to have declined over the last few months, and I just wasn’t enjoying it as much as I did when I first got it. boy, when I first got it though, I used it all the time, everyday and for hours on end. I took it with me on trips, and sometimes even in to the office. but recently I got a new one–a 15-inch one. three more inches really makes a difference, let me tell you! when I opened the box, I gasped because it was just so stunning. it was a little embarrassing having it delivered to work and admit I use one (most people there don’t as far as I know), but I’m so happy with it. in fact, it’s right here with me, as I blog this.

most women today have one, and my sister was no exception. hers was black and it was quite large. I don’t know if she used it too much or what, but it wouldn’t even turn on anymore. she was going nuts not being able to use it, and I really didn’t need two of them, so that’s why I gave her my smaller one. I took it to her sunday and showed her the basics of how to use it, because she’s not used to the white ones. she’ll have so much fun discovering how much fun it can be. she already loves it so much, she wants to bring it with her everywhere she goes, and she’s thanked me three times in two days.

once you go mac, you don’t go back.

heh heh…she said ass

today on today, while interviewing frank mccourt, katie couric called his book angela’s asses.
