It's The Today Show's annual tradition - Halloween dress up day! And they did it true SNL style. Which skit do you think won for best dressed? Spartan Cheerleaders, Mary Katherine Gallagher, Wayne & Garth, Blues Brothers, Pat or Mom's Jeans?
The wine critic for The New York Times clearly has too much time on his hands.
In his column this week, Eric Asimov took the time to point out that Kerry Washington - who plays Olivia Pope on Scandal - is drinking her wine all wrong.
His critique: "She habitually grabs goblets by the bulb rather than the stem, as a wine lover would. She never swirls and sniffs, the ritual that non-wine drinkers alternately find amusing, affected, or annoying. She guzzles rather than sips."
Someone needs to tell this guy...
(1) Olivia's a fictional character.
(2) It's probably cranberry or pomegranate juice she's sipping.
(3) He should get a life.
Getting ready for the Big Party at ACL Live at the Moody Theater w/ Neon Trees.. 6th Annual Zombie Ball Masquerade. Not sure I'll pull off the Zombie look, since I'll be doing my own makeup. Here's an example of a few years ago when the FABULOUSLY TALENTED MATT VALENTINE did my Zombie makeup.
Anyway, have a Happy & Safe Halloween. If you have plans to get in the Zombie mood tonight, then be sure to say hey to me.
BTW... if you don't know much about Halloween. Besides it being the 2nd biggest $$ maker holiday when it comes to retail- Americans spend $6BILLION a year on Halloween! Why we dress up? Why beg for candy/treats? I guess we have to beg since we spent all our cash getting ready for Halloween. :) Check this out... Click here!

I can't believe I just typed that... not like shopping! I enjoy shopping most of the time. A few times I don't when it comes to getting a bathing suit and also sunglasses. This morning I had this fall out on my lap when I was getting ready to head into work. I have the worst luck w/ sunglasses. I don't like getting expensive ones, because I've been known to sit on my sunglasses getting in the car. Somehow they end up in the seat before I sit down. Or course cheap ones, can break sooner, which isn't always the case. It's also hard for me to find a pair that fits my face correctly and not hurt my ears after wearing them for awhile. So when they finally break, I get bummed out I need to shop for another pair.
Do you have this same problem? Or am I just weird? Okay.. I know I'm weird, but do you have this problem?
