I don’t know what it is about the word “rump,” but I think it’s hilarious! I’d be happy if it came back into style. That’s all . . .
Happy birthday, Amanda Lepore. Really, that’s all I’ve got . . .
“Glamour Shots” are already so-out-they’re-in-again. For that reason, I’m not going to wish for the trend to be resurrected. I will, however, express my fondness for this pose I call “bus bench realness” (I’ve always associated it with real estate agents who advertise on bus benches).
I don’t know why more professional models don’t stop at the end of the runway and do this when they look into the camera. I don’t know why more actresses don’t recreate this pose on the red carpet. I don’t know why my own Facebook page doesn’t have a photo of me doing exactly this. I suppose I can change that anytime. I am the genesis of every major trend, after all . . .
Happy birthday, Fred Armisen. Not only did you get to meet Homer Simpson, but you also share your birthday with Tyra Banks. You’re living my dream! I’m so jealous I could spit . . .
When I was younger — before everyone owned a home computer — it was not unusual to go over to someone’s house to play cards. Nowadays there are a lot of people out there who don’t even know how many cards there are in a deck.
Leaning how to play a myriad of card games taught me many valuable skills, including how to count quickly in my head and how to process odds by rote. It didn’t surprise me at all when I learned that Bill Gates and Warren Buffet were bridge partners. Cards are for smart people. Card games are for social people. Knowing how to play cards is one of those things that sets us apart from the rabble. Card games can give us a reason to step away from our devices, shower, put on a nice shirt and leave the house in order to be in the presence of other sentient beings.
I’d be happy if it became trendy to play cards again (and not just Texas Hold’em, which is one of the least-sophisticated poker games — I’ll take HORSE or Omaha any day). Or maybe it’s up to me to make it a trend again. I suppose I could use my power for good instead of evil for a change . . .
Happy birthday, Ozzy Osbourne. I’m still not quite sure about you. Like the rest of your family, you might have to go on “Dancing with the Stars” to win me over . . .
Egypt-mania has had a couple of good runs in the last century or so. The first was in the twenties just after the discovery of King Tut’s tomb. The second was in the seventies when the treasures of that tomb went on a worldwide tour. A few more tours of different objects have since traveled the globe (including one that wrapped up in Seattle earlier this year).
I would be thrilled if this “aesthetic” had a bit of a comeback; just look at what a designer like John Galliano can do with the theme! Plus, I’m looking for something shiny to wear on New Year’s Eve . . .
