advice from another cartoon princess

"The longer you're trapped, the more it will feel like home – Stockholm!"  Such good advice!

you can’t fool me, Sean Penn

Can we just talk about this action for a second?

SEAN-PENN-IN-DRAG
Sean Penn is shooting the lead in a movie called This Must Be The Place, about a rock star who hunts down an ex-Nazi war criminal who tortured his father in Auschwitz and haunts his remaining days. Penn in drag and the Holocaust?  Say whaaa?

He needs a better make-up artist.  

saturday style: Miss Universe

When I was a little girl I loved watching the Miss Universe pageant for the beginning portion where the contestants would come out in costumes of their nations.  Miss France might have a skirt that looked like the flag and a top made of brioche, Miss USA would be dressed as the Statue of Liberty, Miss Australia would have a koala attached to her back.  It was spectacular.  

Not only is the Miss Universe pageant still going on (despite never having contestants from other planets), I believe the costumes are even better.  The actual pageant is on the 23rd, but many of the contestants posed this week in their national costumes at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Vegas so we could have a little fabulous on our computer screens.  

Let's go to the photos.

Miss Belgium Cilou Annys
I've never been one for tennis, but I think it would be hard to play in that train and those shoes.  Just sayin'.

Miss Kosovo Keshtjella Pepshi
Miss Kosovo, you have a little something on your…um, never mind.

Miss Peru 2010 Giuliana Zevallos
"In Peru we know how to do the party.  AMIRITE?  AMIRITE?  I got the lampshade on my head and I wear the tablecloths.  Ha ha ha.  I stole your collectable plate and glued it to my belt.  Ha ha ha.  I make with the practical jokes too!"

Miss Honduras Kenia Martinez

Miss Honduras is a rare breed of tiger peacock.  She is to be feared.

Miss Spain 2010 Adriana Reveron
The award for most ruffles while wearing polka dots goes to Miss Spain.

Miss Venezuela Marelisa Gibson
No one's hugging Miss Venezuela/Edwina Scissorarms tonight.  

Miss Switzerland Linda Faeh
Miss Switzerland will cut a bitch.

Miss Panama Anyoli Abrego
Miss Panama was attacked by every animal in her country.  There will be a telethon hosted by George Clooney.  Stay tuned for details.

Miss USA Rima Fakih
I loaned Miss USA my Super Cougar costume.  I wear boots with it, not stripper sandals.  Tacky.

Miss Albania Angela Martini
"Suck it, Miss USA!  We have wings in Albania too!  Devil wings."  

Miss Aruba Priscilla Lee

"Stupid bitches in costumes."

I took a drive

I took a drive this afternoon.  Just needed to.  

My 80's playlist was on.  Here is part of the soundtrack:


And after my drive I decided everyone needs the lyrics to "Don't Get Me Wrong," so here they are.   It might just be fantastic.

"Don't Get Me Wrong"  The Pretenders

Don't get me wrong
If I'm looking kind of dazzled
I see neon lights
Whenever you walk by

Don't get me wrong
If you say hello and I take a ride
Upon a sea where the mystic moon
Is playing havoc with the tide
Don't get me wrong

Don't get me wrong
If I'm acting so distracted
I'm thinking about the fireworks
That go off when you smile

Don't get me wrong
If I split like light refracted
I'm only off to wander
Across a moonlit mile

Once in awhile
Two people meet
Seemingly for no reason
They just pass on the street
Suddenly thunder, showers everywhere
Who can explain the thunder and rain
But there's something in the air

Don't get me wrong
If I come and go like fashion
I might be great tomorrow
But hopeless yesterday

Don't get me wrong
If I fall in the 'mode of passion'
It might be unbelievable
But let's not say so long
It might just be fantastic
Don't get me wrong

writing about what I know

So, I thought I would let y'all know about something I've been up to.  Well, one of the things I've been up to, as I'm usually up to something, most of which I can't talk about.  I'm writing for Examiner.com.  What?  You think I just write on this blog for my health?  Nope.  

I was always taught to write about what I know, so I'm writing about plus-size fashion.  I have a little experience with that subject.  This is my page on Examiner, where I have written two articles so far with more to come.  Next I may do an article on getting The Joan Look from Mad Men.  I'm not sure if that's next, but it's definitely coming up.  

Anyway, if posts here are slow, check my page there for fun.  Be good.

I pity the fool who doesn’t like this

Y'all know I love the typograhic art.  This may be the best evah.

this explains a lot

My friend Jenn alerted me to an interview Lady Gaga did with Vanity Fair, where she says, “I have this weird thing that if I sleep with someone they’re going to take my creativity from me through my vagina.”  

Okay then.

So, now we know where it escapes from.  And now I have another reason for not sleeping around back in the day — loss of creativity.  I was accused of being a prude by many, but really, I didn't want to give up my creativity.  It's much too precious and from what I understand it's like your eggs, you're born with only so many and once they're gone, they're gone.  Or they dry up.  Same thing with creativity.  Thank you, Lady Gaga for brining this information to the masses.
