Had a blast watching the Emmy's last night and my girl crush on Tina Fey has grown significantly!  She is truly one of the funniest women on the planet and when she and Amy Poehler are together, I am in hysterics.  Also, having Jeff Probst, Patrick Dempsey and Jon Hamm all in one show together was utterly delicious!  I remembered why I watched Survivor as long as I did and Jeff Probst is that reason.  Those dimples...sigh! 

Flash forward to near the end of the show and out comes Mary Tyler Moore with her trademark megawatt smile and from a distance I was all 'Damn she looks good!' - fit, really good hair, great dress and I am all happy to see her and had the show theme song running through my head.

Aaaannnnd then the camera pulled in for a close up.  "Pull back!" I screamed at the TV.  Mary has a scary, plastic surgery face!  Her face was so tight that her crotch must be up around her ears when she smiles.  Then she gestured and again I was horrified!  The crepey, flappy skin almost whacked me in the face.  Mary, please!!  I beseech you - no more plastic surgery and pretty, pretty please wear sleeves when on TV from now on!  I know that aging is a bitch but please - we all have to recognize that we can no longer wear certain things anymore with every decade we age.  And at your age - sleeves are now mandatory!  And Mare, please know, I pick because I care.

Now am back at work and dreaming of being stranded on a desert isle with Jeff Probst...ooops, sorry for the drool!

Have a good week y'all!

I will never understand how anyone can think that a comb over is in any way attractive? 

Case in point, I am in the mall on Saturday getting my cardio in (otherwise known as shopping) and in front of me is an attractive, older man.  He turns to get on the escalator and I thought I was going to have a stroke.  Glued to his head with some type of shiny head sealant, were no more than a dozen hairs carefully arranged in some sort of even fashion.  Did he think that I could no longer see the tanned top of his head?   Actually the tanned top 3/4s of his head? 

On behalf of women everywhere I make this public request - cut it off!  We can see the skin shining through the 6 hairs you are so proud of and beg of you to embrace your baldness.  Nothing is attractive about a few hairs grown so long and scraped up and over a place on your head where they do not belong.  Do what is right and set those poor hairs free!  They have done their best for you and now is their time to retire to Hair Heaven! 

Women around the world beg of you - no more comb over!  And in return, we will stop pointing at you in malls, mock retching and then blogging about it.   Once that is fixed, we will work on the bad old man jeans but a girl has to have priorities!

I am feeling a definite loss of inspiration regarding what to say here so here are a collection of random thoughts.  If nothing else, it will get them out of my head.
  • was slightly hung over this morning - nothing works better to fix that than a breakfast that includes bacon
  • I love the GAP
  • Red wine is truly a gift from God
  • The sound of a can of Diet Coke opening is music to my ears
  • Cheese should really have less calories as it makes up a large part of my diet
  • How do the girls at the MAC counter keep their make up perfect every minute of the day? 
  • And why is it that I can never recreate anything that they do for me with the same products and brushes?
  • Is 42 too old to tell people that I am really good at Wii bowling?
  • Just saw an ad for Survivor and am wondering who still watches it? 
That are all the random thoughts I could muster up today.  I promise to better the next time I write.

Today, our friend Rob has been deployed to join the Canadian troops in Afghanistan.  He and Wilson grew up together and their parents and Wilson's parents are best friends.  He is a loving husband to Marcie and a father to 2 gorgeous children. 

This is not a political statement or me on any kind of soap box.  Just a request to you dear Internet - in whatever way you do - could you send out good thoughts to the universe for Rob and his family to keep him safe for his tour.  All of us who know him, just want him to come home safe and sound.

Thank you Internet!
