thank you TLC

…and just when I thought I was having a “meh” day, dlisted.com shared this visual TREAT from The “Learning” Channel. How convenient!

Check out this clip from their new show:

Virgin Diaries What NOT To Do At The Altar.

I’m sorry, it’s not funny, he clearly lost his cough drop. In her throat.

Well there’s definitely a lesson in this somewhere. Courtesy of the most educational place on tv, TLC.

Use The Force

If you could make one thing happen with your mind today, what would it be? Besides making a red velvet cupcake materialize on your desk, of course. That’s a given.

yum.

I seriously believe that if we as humans had occasional use of the force, life would just be better. You know those times when there’s something(s) weighing so heavily on your mind that you can’t focus on anything else? For instance, if Roomie #2 could will a “50 cm olive Birkin with purple suede interior, leather lock and palladium hardware” into his hot little hand, he’d probably spend a lot less time lusting after them online and a lot more time doing work. While my own “force” worthy thoughts today are more personal than sartorial, they are every bit as distracting.

If I could will a certain new guy to text me and a certain email to arrive (FINALLY) -today would be far less self destructive more productive. I know, I’m being a total girl. Think what you will and judge if you must, but it’s the truth. And the worst part is that, while said email is far more important in the grand scheme of my life, I’d still take the text first and probably instantly forget all about the email.

This is what happens to me at the Holidays. Some people get a new purse from their parents or a years worth of socks from their grandma, but every year at Christmastime, I open up a big box of B.S.Crazy puppy love. I can’t help it. After some diligent sleuthing, I’ve boiled it down to what must be a lethal combination of cold weather, sentimental movies and pretty lights, but identifying my symptoms thus far has done little to assuage them. It also doesn’t help that I watched “Going the Distance” with Roomie #1 last night. A sweet romcom with Drew Barrymore and Justin Long about a couple that falls in love and tries to navigate a long distance relationship. Or as I like to call it,

Emotional Terrorism.

The movie was super relatable and their chemistry was great. So great in fact that their sad little love story had the two of us ugly-crying on the couch and spouting things like “It’s not fair! A love like their’s deserves better!” …really? This could have been a true story about finding love in refugee camp and I still wouldn’t have expected that gem to leap out of my mouth.

But, ridiculous as it may be, I have resigned myself to the fact that the Holidays can make everyone a little love-sick. It probably doesn’t help when a certain new guy, a really funny, cute guy starts making unexpected recurring appearances in the romcom of your life and has nearly blown your calculated and cool “bro” exterior, either. (More to come on that later.)

Sure I could try to ignore it, put my phone away and hunker into some thrilling press release, but let’s be real, that has an icicle’s chance in hell of happening. I’ll be here, working on my Jedi skills and willing my iPhone to ding… if only I could find a red velvet cupcake.

Riddle me this America…

Please tell me I’m not the only one who noticed this. With the ridiculous amount of useless American Idol commentary a float in this here internet, why has no one pointed out that…

Contestant Casey James

is the identical male twin brother of…

none other than Taylor Swift??!?

Does no one see the uncanny hair-semblance? The glistening blonde. That effortless curl?  Only Taylor Swift, Casey James and baby angels could have hair that perfect.

unless…

You heard it here first. Taylor Swift and Casey James: bastard twin children of the silky-smooth Michael Bolton.

REALLY??

Today I’m taking a page from my favorite SNL skit with Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers and saying:

Tyra Banks… REALLY??!!

Ms. Banks just signed a deal with Delacorte Press to write a series of Young Adult novels about young models in training with… you guessed it, SUPER POWERS!

Really, Tyra Banks? REALLY?? Just what we need, more literary toilet paper to litter the empty stalls of our youth’s lost appreciation for the written word. A little harsh? Maybe. But models with super powers? Come on.

Riiight, because being Amazonian tall, stick skinny, gorgeous and the object of international male affection isn’t powerful enough? Not to mention their abilities to survive for days on a diet coke and a cigarette. Now that’s a super power you can take to the bank. I can barely go an hour without a carb.

Alright Tyra Banks, you win again. World: 0  Tyra: 1

Adolescent girls, good luck.
