Straight Up Paula...this look is so not good.

What a week it has been....
You revealed on Barbara Walter's radio show that you begged the producers of American Idol not to let your stalker on the show...but they thought it would make for good TV....
Then you had to deal with the tragic death of that same obsessed, stalker fan outside your home three weeks ago....
Listening to accusations that you hit the bottle because of your slurred and mumbled speech every time you open up your mouth...
And now this picture surfaces...
Good gawd...
Really Paula...just because the beloved Nutcracker character is used as a decoration at Christmas it does not mean that you literally have to dress like one....
Bad Paula. Bad. Bad.
This puts you on Santa's naughty list.

Pants 911

Pamela Anderson....[Art Basel event in Miami last night (Dec 6/08)]

Seriously are so too old for this fashion ensemble...
Your face is looking about 20 years older than the rest of your bod...
And BTW why wear a knit hat if you are not going to wear any pants?
Fire the stylist...and if you did the choosing...get a stylist ASAP.
Too bad Mr. Blackwell is no longer around to see this tarty getup....although Tara Reid may have found her new BFF.

Looking to 'pay it forward' with Christmas gifts?

Recently found out about this what it is empowerment....
This makes for a great Christmas gift....or as a party favour...

This holiday season, help educate a child in the name of your friends and family.
For a minimum contribution of $5, we will send out a personalized “Wishing Star” tribute card which acknowledges your donation to CODE on the recipient's behalf.
That donation will be used to help us teach a child in Africa or the Caribbean to read and write – if you can read and write, you can learn to do, and be, anything.
Literacy is a legacy for the future.
We can mail the card to the recipient directly, or send it to you to fill out and deliver.
“Wishing Star” cards make great wedding favours for guests.
They are perfect gifts for holidays, anniversaries, graduations, retirements, hostess gifts and Birthdays.
They are a great way to say thank you to your favourite teacher, and best of all, each card makes a difference to a child.

Horrific child abuse case....Winnipeg, Manitoba

This is the most horrific story about child abuse I have heard about in a long long time....
Life in prison doesn't seem harsh enough....
If only their sentence included being forced to go through what they put their daughter through on a daily basis....
I am so disgusted.

Great custom designed invitations.....

I discovered Serendipity Designs when a friend of mine sent out birthday invites for her son's first birthday...
The invitations were so well designed and after checking out other samples of their work I decided to spread the word....amazing detailed & creative work....they make for wonderful keepsakes for those who receive them....

and here is the official website:

Damien Rice & Ray LaMontagne....

Love these two artists....

They came together to do a great rendition of 'To Love Somebody'....

Ray's raspy voice is a total throwback to Joe Cocker.....

First saw Ray on the TV show Austin City Limits...I've been in love with his music ever since....

Ahh all is well in the world...

Brit Brit is looking normal again....

Back to her roots, the good ole 'virginal Justin Timberlake' looking days...

I'm happy for Brit Brit...she looks happy, lost the weight [that includes Federline], off the drugs and drink and is back to making music....
Just listen to your momma and daddy and stay away from trailer park KFed boys and you'll do just fine on the comeback trail....

Travels in Shanghai...

My friend Colin is in Shanghai on a business trip....and this is is an email I received from him the other day....[yes he's always this sarcastic & witty...a natural...]

Things I've learned in Shanghai...
I've learned...
-It's totally ok to turn left regardless of what lane you start in. Ditto for right turns.
-Lanes are just a suggestion. The white lines are there but nobody really pays attention to them.
Traffic lights are also a suggestion. More of a guideline. Red lights are sometimes optional in heavy traffic.
-It's ok to cut someone off even if they're right beside you.
-It's ok to pass someone using the oncoming traffic lanes.
-Pededstrians and people on scooters/bikes are a nuisance to drivers and don't really count as anything. I'm shocked there are not more people killed.
-Restaurants have menus with pictures on them - key to see what you're actually ordering.
-It's one hell of a benefit to have a person who speaks Cantonese in your group. That way you actually know what meat is in the pictures you see on the menus.
-The DVDs I brought don't work in the DVD player in the hotel.
-Contrary to popular, North American belief, I'm not considered to be a Godzilla figure. I'm still short but there are way more people like me over here.
-Hooters still sucks...although it's way more entertaining over here. Anytime you can have a group of 7 Chinese Hooters girls sing 'You Are My Sunshine' to you, it's worth the price of admission.
-13 hour time differences suck.
-Smog is cool. However, it's losing its popularity. There are a zillion trees here - replantation is going strong.
-Dave Matthews' song, 'Don't Drink The Water', should be taken literally by Westerners. Thankfully I was forewarned.
-English TV channels have subtitles and the sound doesn't match the mouth movements. Take that Bruce Lee.
-'You're Welcome' must be the first thing they learn in English class. They love saying the point of getting uncomfortable. But they are very eager to show you they can speak English - and most of them are pretty good at it. I on the other hand cannot speak a lick of Cantonese.
-There are 8000 characters in the Cantonese 'alphabet'. Take that ABC.
-They don't have heat over here. It's freezing everywhere and they like it like that. If you ever come here, bring warm clothing.

More to come...I'm going shopping this weekend to the 'market'...should be interesting...

Message from Santa!

Here is a great link where your child can receive a personalized video message from Santa Claus.
Its called the 'Portable North Pole'.
Its from Sympatico MSN and there is a French version too.
My 2 1/2 year thought is was the 'coolest' thing ever...the look on his face was priceless...especially since Santa says his name and shows his picture....
Its simple to use and only takes a few minutes to do....

The Doghouse....

Diamonds are a girl's best friend.......

Got to hand it to JC Penny....this advertisement was so well executed....brilliant...even if you are not married...its totally worth a watch....

My favorite quotes of the last 48 new Canadian Political Coalition Government...

To expect Dion, another headstrong ideologue, to pass that test, to learn to listen and accept advice, is to miss the central point of this showdown. Character matters. It was Harper's dark side that provoked the crisis; it will only get worse if Dion can't overcome the failings that made him such a poor choice for Liberal leader.
~James Travers []

The biggest Liberal loser in the party's electoral history, a self-admitted campaign failure who advocated carbon taxes as sound economy policy and lacks significant Western Canada representation, seems set to become prime minister next week. Forgive them. They know not what they've done. ~Don Martin [National Post]

The Liberals sold their soul in the sponsorship scandal. They are selling it again to grab power. Hang on to your wallets. The sponsorship scandal will have nothing on this. ~Bob Dudley

Is this Canada or some banana republic? We have enough problems without our elected officials acting like a bunch of kindergarteners.
So in a language our politicians may understand...

Steven – Give the other boys their money back, and stop acting like a bully.
Stephan – You received an “F” on your exam. It’s over – go home.
Gilles - You just like to disrupt the class. Go stand in the corner.
Jack - Poor little Jack, you just don’t play well with others. Either stand in the corner with Gilles, or go home with Stephan.
We the voters gave Steven Harper the bat. So we the Voters will decide if or when he strikes out...Not you. ~Ian - Lindsay

"Why not Gilles Duceppe as defence minister--this way, he can use the Canadian army to strong-arm his separatist ambitions." ~Calgary Herald

'He will have zero democratic legitimacy. He will never be able to use the words, “That’s the job the Canadian people elected me to do." ~David Frum

Layton says he couldn't think of anything better for Canada than to invite separatists into government. I can. Having a federalist party in power committed to a unified Canada would be a good start. It's something Winnipeg NDP MP Pat Martin -- one of the most outspoken critics of the separatist movement -- has always understood. I wonder how he feels about his party signing a deal with the devil. This pact could be one of the most dangerous developments in Canadian history if it succeeds. It could have incalculable results.
~Tom Brodbeck [Winnipeg Sun]

Her Excellency the Right Honourable Michaƫlle Jean
Governor General of Canada

Your Excellency,

In the last few days we've witnessed the Liberal Party of Canada, New Democratic Party of Canada, and the Bloc Quebecois, sign a coalition agreement that would see them seek, from you, the ability of the Liberals and New Democrats to form a coalition government supported by the Bloc Quebecois.

The Liberal Party is tabling a non-confidence vote Monday, December 8th, 2008, where they appear to be fully intent on bring the Conservative minority government down.

You have an array of constitutional measures at your disposal. I strongly urge you, as a Canadian citizen, in this situation, to call another federal election.

In the last federal election Canadians were never made aware of any possible coalition agreements. In fact, Liberal leader Stephane Dion denied any possibility of a coalition with the New Democrats. Canadians who voted for these three opposition parties voted under the impression that there would be no coalition government. While there may be voters who voted for these particular parties that would support this coalition government, it is evident, by public opinion, the majority of our electorate is against a Liberal-New Democratic coalition propped up by the Bloc Quebecois.

This, while constitutionally legal, is unethical and an underhanded swipe at democracy.

I strongly advice you, within your constitutional prerogatives, to call a federal election. As this is the best solution to this problem.

Yours sincerely,

[sign here]
