I need need need to get tickets to this.
I'm sure it will never happen again, BBC
BBC apologizes for stating ...umm....facts
? Guess they should go back to their more accurate headlines.
Important matters for a change
For the third day in a row I've been holed up in my apartment after coming down with some sort of hellish tonsil infection. (Tonsilitis for those of you with that science degree). Seriously, it's so bad that my doctor took a step back after shining that flashlight in my mouth while I said 'AAHH'. Apparently my tonsils are so big they are touching ever so slightly. I'm not entirely sure what that means, but I do know that I can only eat ice cream and wonton soup. Which isn't the worst thing in the world.
Anyhow, without the energy or the proper body temperature to actually do anything productive, I am stuck watching HGTV and Fox & Friends, while reading the requisite In Touch and People. This are things I've discovered in the past three days:
- No one told me that Kevin Connelly, also known as the short guy from Entourage and my latest obsession, was dating Nicky Hilton for two years on and off. He seemed like such the down-to-earth-I-wanna-bring-my-girlfriend-to-McDonald's type of guy. Although according to People, he is single now, and would love his potential girl to enjoy watching the Bicycle Thief
as much as he does. Do you think Nicky has seen any movies pre-1989?
- After watching Mark Consuelos guest host on Regis and Kelly, I have officially coined the two the cutest couple ever. Enrique Iglesias was on the show and Kelly and Mark joked that Anna and Enrique were the taller, younger, better looking and more successful version of them. Maybe, but I doubt that Anna and Enrique have any sense of humor whatsoever. As beautiful as they are, don't they just seem to be so boring?
- Cate Blanchett is looking worse and worse these days. Girl's gotta go back to eating some Aussie red meat.
Stalkers need to step it up
I'm not sure why I read Gawker Stalker
on a regular basis. It's one of those things I just love to hate, like bad chick lit and old 90210 episodes. Today's stalker series features a powerful man who managed to win the hearts and minds of America's youth through Fleetwood Mac:Bill Clinton

Walking down 2nd avenue in front of FRANK restaurant surrounded by secret service men. He's a fox. Apparently everyone else though so and FREAKED out like — people followed him. He's bigger than a rock star.
A fox? Rock star? If anything, I always had hope that at the very least, my fellow New Yorkers had a decent eye for aesthetics. Boy, have I been proven wrong.
There is no such thing as one cat too many
To all of those who say that nothing good can come from global warming, I say NONSENSE
! Several shelters operated by a national adoption organization called Pets Across America reported a 30 percent increase in intakes of cats and kittens from 2005 to 2006, and other shelters across the nation have reported similar spikes of stray, owned and feral cats.
The cause of this feline flood is an extended cat breeding season thanks to the world’s warming temperatures, according to the group, which is one of the country’s oldest and largest animal welfare organizations.
