THIS AND THAT MONDAY (And the boys...)

CASEY ANTHONY TRIAL (Lawyer Land at Disneyworld)


Ok - anyone who is stunned that a Florida crowd turned into a bunch of low class, screaming morons raise your hand.  Didn't think so.  This trial is the Disneyland Line for Adults, people; Kaycee is preening in her Walmark gel shoes and lovin' it.  If she is acquitted she'll be on the Bachelorette - we all know this.  People are waiting over night, sleeping in the halls outside of court, camping out for a chance to watch a woman who more than likely killed her own daughter and sits watching the gruesome details as if its an audition for Dancing with the Stars.  Nancy Grace is beginning to make sense to me.

Four-year-old Aelita Andre dubbed mini Picasso

A four-year-old artist has been dubbed a 'mini Picasso' after a prestigious New York gallery displayed an exhibition of her work.  Abstract works by little Aelita Andre - said to be the youngest professional painter in the world - can sell for up to £6,100 each and have been praised by art critics. The Australian artist, who first started painting in play-group, says she is inspired and influenced by nature and outer space and loves creating big bold images.

She often incorporates bark, twigs, children’s toys, bird feathers, and other found objects into her paintings, which gallery bosses say lends "depth and texture" to the overall effect. And visitors to the Agora Gallery in Manhattan seemed to enjoy her vivid and expressive works… but maybe they just didn't want to make a little girl cry.

A spokesperson for the gallery said: "What makes Aelita’s work so compelling is the lightness that pervades her work, a carefree approach that remains completely innocent of anything except those materials that lie before her. "Using acrylics and mixed media, she creates large tableaux of abstract forms as she swirls, spreads, and pours paint across the canvas.

A moment for perspective = At four years old I was still trying stick my fingers into light sockets.  It still has a certain appeal.


MARY KATE AND ASHLEY OLSEN - TWENTY-FIVE YEARS OLD
Don't you think Uncle Jessie regrets not being a little nicer to these two?  They are gazillionaires.  I have bras older than this.

And they look so real don't they?  They are actually made from marzipan.


WOMEN I  DON'T REALLY LIKE
1.  Paula Deen
2.  Penelope Cruz
3.  Angelina Jolie
4.  Rachel Ray
5.  Mother Angelica
6.  That Coulter bitch - the blonde, not her sister the writer, although the writer is pretty bad

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE 2005 - THEN AND NOW



No one looks different.  Except...Colonel Fitzwilliam (Cornelius Booth) is bald.  Egad. And thin.  Bingley is really cute.  He was magnificent in ROME as Octavian the Ice Man.  Hubba hubba.  The guy who played Wickham - how he ever got Keira Knightley to date him is a complete mystery. 

Donald Sutherland has looked ancient for over fifty years and doesn't he have about the hugest head you ever saw?  Little Tom Hollander - the Reverend Collins - is always adorable.  He's about 3 feet tall.  Little known Hollywood fact. 

Mathew Macfadyen became the Invisible Man.  Although, he is now going to be in The Three Musketeers - 3D (oy vey) and in the upcoming Anne Karenina, playing Keira Knightley's brother. (double oy vey.  They should get married already.  What great looking kids) 


PARANORMAL ROMANCE (or as we used to say, the Honeymoon)


I just can't get into this vampire stuff or any of the paranormal writing.  I am stalking book bloggers to try and get them to review Darcy and Fitz and all the younger ones are into this Vampire junk.  Blech.  I cannot think of anything remotely appealing about a man ripping out your throat.  Call me old fashioned. 

I have a feeling that the Harry Potter Effect is taking hold.  ll the little Potheads are growing up (in a manner of speaking) and they LIKE this crap.  Merde.

GRATUITOUS PHOTO OF GORGEOUS MAN

DANGER WILL ROBINSON
This was featured in Sharon Lathan's Father's Day post and I thought it was funny.  And true.

"Spread the diaper in the position of the diamond with you at bat.  Then fold second base down to home and set the baby on the pitcher’s mound.  Put first base and third together, bring up home plate and pin the three together.  Of course, in case of rain, you gotta call the game and start all over again."

Necessary Photo of Gorgeous Man was too far down the column for me. And I corrected the title. I'm going to be swooning over that man when he's 80, and I'm 8?

I have a picture painted by the elephants at our zoo. It has grass and twigs on it, too. Our elephants play the harmonica. Can this 4 year old do that? Ha! Thought not.

I was still laughing at the P&P pics when I read the Graph Work. At first glance I thought it said "Things that Reportedly Taste Like Children." Thought the animals listed had been polled.

I so wanted my boy, Elroy, to catch an Olsen Twin. Turns out that he's got better taste for himself than I do. But they could afford him and would take him off my payroll.

Big LucyP news - finally getting new roof after last month's tornados. New decking, attic will be open for two days. Why am I the only one who thinks this is a certain CaLaMiTy?!

Hi to our heartthrob Rich!

As little as you actually talk about fistorial hiction, I am drawn to your blog. One day soon I will sit down and read it from start to finish. If I can get that far alive.

LucyP - thanks for telling me now how roofless you are! Did not know, I would have sent you one. I even toyed with the idea of marrying an Olsen twin but we could sell them your son.

Debbie - I know I am a disappointment with Historical Fiction and I start out with all the right intentions - notice I have the Sparta guy up first. Yeah, I know he's wearing dockers - what's your point.

Debbie Brown said...

No point at all, no disappointment. I thoroughly enjoy your posts! I love 'em! As long as you can squeeze a little his fic in them, I tweet 'em.
