The Best Motto

Gd, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannon change
Courage to change the things I can
And the wisdom to know the difference.

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.

You woke up this morning - Congratulations! You got another chance!

Tuesday, October 29, 2013


Good Morning, peeps! Happy Tuesday! It's chilly today, but still sunny - and if I could, I would wear my flippies today.
George is getting slightly less whiny; this morning he ate his chicken almost without any complains, and is now resting in an undisclosed location. Sniff is also beginning to like George's food and partaking of it more and more. He also likes to try and bury all the food after he is done eating - and as it's all on the kitchen floor, the picture is beyond hilarious.
The crazy upstairs is up to her usual schtick.
Baby Bro would like to report the local libraries to ASPCA and PETA for the cruelty to tortoises.
Liberals are hypocrites in everything they do.
Currently trending at #1 is Guy Fieri - because he had to testify about his Lamborghini that was stolen back in 2011. Off with their heads! How dare they steal a man's baby - his beloved ride?!!
Trending at #6 is Eminem - because he is debuting his duet with Rihanna. Their timing is flawless - just in time for Halloween.
Lisa Kudrow is also in the news - partly because she claimed that she was "hideous" before her nose job. Way to promote self-esteem in young women, Lisa!
"Jonas Brothers announce their breakup" - sniff, sniff! They claim that they are parting ways due to "creative differences" - is there any other official excuse for a band to break up?
Alyssa Milano and Rose McGowan are against the reboot of Charmed, claiming that it's a "lame" idea - I hate to disappoint you lades, but the show got extremely lame after the 3rd season anyway.
"Opulent new Range Rover" - somehow opulent and Range Rover do not fit in the same sentence.
"5 fat-fighting chairs" - what happened to actually getting out of the chair and simply exercising?!!
"Austin Mahone vs. Justin Bieber: Who Has Hotter Abs?" - interesting things people are concerned with, what can I say.
And, finally, Georgie gave a huge smile to his mummy in the official christening photo - awww!
Coffee this morning in my Disney Dalmatian Spots mug.


Good Morning, peeps! Happy Monday! Shavua Tov! Wishing all of you a great week! The weather is pretty decent for NY October - and sun is definitely enjoyable.
George is sleeping in his huge Amazon box together with his trophy mouse. Sniff did his usual running, yelling, and tail-puffing this morning, and is now sleeping on Baby Bro's bed.
The mystery of what happened with our emergency kettle still remains, well, a mystery.
Never knew that maple syrup adds "smoky sweetness" - who comes up with those descriptions?
Currently trending at #1 is Hugh Hefner - because he and his current wife dressed up for their annual Halloween party as Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke. I really don't know which one of these four is the most barf-inspiring, but way to climb to #1!
Currently trending at #6 is Olivia Wilde - because she is also expecting a baby!
Trending at #7 is Sylvester Stallone - because "he unveiled his paintings in Russia". I sort of don't know which is more disturbing: Stallone as an artist, or any mention of step-mama country, or the fact that the old moron actually went there.
Kim K. was contemplating just naming her daughter North and not giving her a last name - some people really should attain some kind of licencing before they are allowed to become parents.
"Way to burn 100 calories in 10 minutes" - how about taking care of 3 preschoolers? Guaranteed weight loss with no fuss.
"Singles describe their worst dates ever" - for reasons unknown I was not invited to the forum.
"Proof that women multitask better than men" - you still need proof for that?!!!! What planet are you from?
New rumors are floating that the reason Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr split up was because she had "Bieber fever" - yea, I can totally see this as a deal breaker.

Friday, October 25, 2013


Good Morning, peeps! Happy Thursday! It's chilly, but sunny - pretty decent for October.
The cats did their usual annoying schticks in the morning and are now sleeping - George on my bed, and Sniff is snuggling with Baby Bro.
Apparently, it's against the law to swear on the streets of our fair city - insert maniacal laughter here.
Currently trending at #2 is Tom Cruise - because it was claimed that he had "Scientology girlfriend auditions". Yea, this is what happens when an average dude with a very average talent is repeatedly told that he is very handsome and a great actor.
Kate Upton got on the list of the badly dressed of the week - I sort of agree with the decision of the experts here, but then I think most of the modern fashion is ugly.
Morgan Freeman is trending at #6 because he "blasted" tea party, called them crazy, and told that they can "move out" - thanks, dude! How about morons and racists like you move out, so the people who truly love this country can finally have some peace of mind?
When Jimmy Kimmel asked P Diddy about whose side he was on in Kanye/Kimmel dispute, Diddy said that as both he and Kanye are "musical artists"... - I think his opinion about him and his friend is a trifle high; what artists? And music?!! The noise they are making is an insult to music.
If you can't afford a vacation for yourself, you can at least send your stuffed animal instead - thanks, but no thanks. My stuffed animals are staying in the closet.
The subject of Kim K.'s engagement ring is still fresh on everyone's mind - most probably because she got a very not tastefully large diamond almost at the same time as her ex auctioned off her old one. I mean, speaking of bad timing!
The woman who stripped for Bieber in Houston "is finally speaking out" - yuk and barf. Come on, violin players from step-mama city! Where are the money for his assassination already?!!
Coffee this morning in my Disney Mini Bean Bag Plush mug with the 7 Dwarfs.


Good Morning, peeps! Happy Wednesday! The weather is getting into October mode, but still pleasant enough.
Kitties are on the sleepy side again, although in the morning there was another flurry of activity. Sniffles was in a fighting mood, and George was loudly complaining under the door while I was in the shower. Now he is snoozing on my bed, and Sniff is in the big closet.
Yesterday I was complimented on my "terrific Russian" - phooey!
Kanye proposed with a 15-karat ring worth 2.5 million greenbacks - I think we can safely assume that this particular diamond is way beyond "tastefully large".
A new study points out that the oldest kids perform better in school not because they are smarter, but because "their parents are tougher on them" - duh! I would have told it to you for free.
"Taylor Swift goes brunette for movie roll" - it's just a wig, but she still looks strange in it.
"How Miley Saved Career" - prostituting herself to save her career? Where are the blankety blank blank self-proclaimed defenders of women's rights when you need them?
"Why (Melissa) McCarthy were on oversize coat on mag cover" - I really don't give a flying banana.
An art thief is planning to sue a Dutch museum for "making a heist too easy" - OK, now I have heard everything.
The Capitol Building needs repairs to the tune of 59.6 million UDSs! I totally support preserving the national monuments, but can we please deduct this from the salaries of the stuffed up popinjays that occupy it?
No glaring news about Bieber - cause for concern?
Coffee this morning in my Aruba mug.


Good Morning, peeps! Happy Tuesday! The weather still rocks! The feline companions are a bit on the sleepy side this morning - George is on my bed again, and Sniff is on Baby Bro's chair. 
Sign of growing up in a hungry country - a visit to the supermarket is always an enjoyable pastime! Plus, kitties decided to help in the unpacking by sniffing everything, chewing on the bags, jumping in the pantry, etc.
Continuing to read the fascinating study in the Men's Health. Apparently, Greek men get it the most because "they don't hesitate to pursue committed women for flings" - fine morals these people have, what can I say.
Not trending at #1, but at measly #3 - Kim and Kanye are engaged!!! Aw, Mazal Tov! Also found out that they are called Kimye - how cute!!!
Another list of foods (this time only 5) on which I am supposed to "splurge" because they taste better organic; this list alone makes it interesting: chicken, olive oil, butter, olives, and eggs - oh, what I wouldn't give in order to make these gurus live the way I did as a kid for about one year! Everything would taste like manna to them after it, especially the items on their idiotic list!!
Kate Upton "revealed" that when she was growing up, she wanted to be either a zookeeper or a CIA agent - interesting; I can totally see her as sort of Mata Hari; after all, plenty of men go stupid about her.
An alligator who was "just chilling" decided to visit Wallmart - even the animals feel the economic pinch! The poor gator was also forced to check cheep items!
"Potential hair loss remedy" - accept it, shave your head, and move on, for pete's sake!
Ted Danson is currently trending at #8 because "He will always be Sam Malone, even to himself" - well, duh!!
There are also NFL news galore, due to, I guess, football season - but, being a complete ignoramus in this, I am skipping all the gossip and honorable mentions.
According to USA TODAY, "Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, One Direction, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Miley Cyrus and One Direction will tussle for top honors at the first-ever YouTube Music Awards show" - to quote one of my all time fave movies, their tunes "have no musical merit whatsoever", so, what's with all this brouhaha?
And, finally, it looks like Harry's romance with his current girlfriend is getting serious as she was invited to Georgie's christening - just think what another royal engagement will provide in terms of circuses to the masses!
Coffee this morning in my Disney Dalmatian Spots mug.

Tuesday, October 22, 2013


Good Morning, peeps! Happy Monday! Shavua Tov! Wishing all of you a fantastic week! The weather rocks once again - yay!
Our house Democrat, otherwise known as Sniff, destroyed another household item - this time he chewed off the cord of our toaster oven; fortunately, the toaster was old, plus, we got another one. After his usual session of eating, running, eating some more, running some more, he is now resting from his hard labors in Baby Bro's room. George, after his also usual morning routine of whining, eating, and whining some more, is now sleeping on my bed.
Emergency tea kettle is out of commission, which necessitates the emergency purchase of a new one.
According to the survey in Men's Health, American women want to be complimented on their eyes and smiles, the Latin American women want to be complimented on their behinds, and Russian women want to be complimented on their outfits - interesting cultural differences.
Currently trending at #1 - once again, drum roll please - no, not Kim; this time it's her sister Kourtney! She announced "a new fashion endeavor"! Here is an oxymoron for you - Kardashians and fashion.
Trending at #7 is Ted Danson - because, among other things, he was talking about his "close friendship" with Bill and Hilary Clinton. Dude, for shame!
"Arsenio Hall recalls falling-out with Oprah" - racist fight!
"Diet tips from around the Globe" - you want me to sum it up? Eat a variety and enjoy! It's food! Your body needs it!
Chevy Camaro "returns with gusto" - considering the current state of GM, never mind the present EPA standards, I somehow question the "gusto".
"What to do with your Social Security raise" - survive?!!!
One of Bieber's fans reportedly spent 100 grand in order to look like his idol - paging people in white coats with straight jackets!
Kate Upton and Maksim Chmerkovskiy "finally" confirmed "their romantic pairing" - I don't know if more male or female hearts would be broken; my money is on the males.
And, finally, Kate's fave maternity designer shared "pregnancy fashion tips" - the tips did not include the suggestions on how to deal with the moronic sales personnel you so often encounter those days due to affirmative actions hiring guidelines.
Coffee this morning in my huge Disney Pooh and Friends cup.

Saturday, October 19, 2013


Good Morning, peeps! Happy Friday! The weather rocks once again - yippee!! George started the food complains bright and early and still did not stop. Sniff was running around like a demented gazelle once again - and once again Baby Bro said that we should enter him into feline sprinting and enjoy the results.
The TV was switched to ESPN and blessedly silent - thank You, Gd!!
The crazy upstairs is up to her usual stuff but, again blessedly, without the additional help.
Currently trending at #1 is - drum roll once again - Kim Kardashian! And guess why? Oh, hell yes - because now we know for sure what her ex got for her old ring. Want to know? It's 749,000 USDs! Now we can sleep easier knowing the precise number.
Trending at #2 is Gwen Stefani - because her "baby bump made its red carpet debut"! AW!!! I wonder if her and Kim are buds and exchange notes on maternity fashion.
Olsen twins are trending at #3 - because they claim that everything they learned about fashion they learned on the Full House. With all due respect to the Full House, but, fashion?!!!
There is also a whole discussion about Nicki Minaj and what she did to her Lamborghini - in case you were wondering, she painted it pink. With all due respect to the Lamborghini enthusiasts - at least she spent her own money on it, unlike our dear Michelle and Hussein, who spent our money in order to deface our house that's on rent to, yea, Nicki can paint that thing puce and stick Tinker Bells on top of it for all I care - as long as she keeps her nose out of politics
"16 year-old soup found in EPA office fridge" - the bastards were so busy destroying our economy and telling us how to flush out toilets that they forgot to clean their own stinking fridge!
"Katy Perry's latest look" - spare me, please!
"Lara Flynn Boyle: Too Plastic for Hollywood?" -what is this, inside joke? They all look too plastic, for pete's sake!
No news on Bieber - is he breathing? Did the Moscow violin players finally collect enough money?!!!
Coffee this morning in a styrofoam cup from a bagel place next to the blessedly quite laundromat.

Thursday, October 17, 2013


Good Morning, peeps! Happy Thursday! The weather is still warm, despite occasional cloudiness - yay once again!
According to Baby Bro, George is a pragmatic pacifist; Sniff, on the other hand, defies classification. Both of them made sure to sufficiently irritate us this find morning, and then proceeded to fall asleep - George in his huge Amazon box, and Sniff on top of Baby Bro's knapsack. 
NYPL's website finally took down a picture of two guys kissing and replaced it with something much less disgusting - thank The Good Lord!
Yesterday I decided to have a glass of wine that was left over from the Holidays - for no reason other than I felt I like it; sometimes I scare myself.
NY is truly the city that never sleeps - you can't get a seat on the subway after 11 pm, of which fact I was recently reminded.
Someone from "Palestinian Territories" somehow ended up on my blog - not once, but twice!
Someone named Soleil Moon Frye is currently trending at #1 - and not because of her bizarre name. It looks like she joins a long list of preggo celebrities (although who the heck she is and what she is famous for I have not the foggiest idea).
The almost intact "humanlike" scull was recently discovered and provided another "evolutionary glimpse"; the scull also resembles that of liberals and politicians in general.
"Easy routines that can help you stress less": there is only one routine for reducing stress - it's called being a guy.
In the news of fashion: celebrities like tartan, and one couple even used it as their wedding garb - once again, as long as they stay dressed and don't involve themselves in politics, I really don't care what trends float their boats.
"How IKEA's meatballs became a monster hit" - I sort of don't really want to delve into this one.
A company in Texas is offering to retrofit your car against road rage - I wonder at the percentages of the said road rage that necessitated this offer.
Selena Gomez cried on stage - "allegedly" during the song about Bieber. Who cares about Romeo and Juliette - we should have a tragedy called Selena and Justin, or, better yet, Jelena.
And, finally, E! online reveals the secrets of Kate's bargain shopping - interesting times we do live in, what can I tell.
Coffee this morning in my huge Disney Pooh and Friends mug.


Good Morning, peeps! Happy Wednesday! Today is a bit cloudy, but still warm - yay! George eats dietary dry food - as long as it's fresh by his exacting standards. Sniff continues to amuse us by occasionally eating with his paw. He also decided that Baby Bro's room is still better than mine and spends a lot of his sleeping time there.
The minds of Hussein's supporters are interesting and terrifying places to visit.
Observing some parents is scary as well, just in a different way.
Yesterday was, apparently, National Grouch Day - man, and I missed all the festivities!
Currently trending at #7 is Jon Cryer - because he and Ashton Kutcher are currently the highest paid actors on TV. Well, figures - working on a raunchy, misogynistic, and just plain disgusting sitcom pays! The usual suspects, otherwise known as self-proclaimed protectors of women's rights, are, of course, silent. However, Linda Carter had to defend her portrayal of the Superwoman because that WAS offensive to feminists.
Ivanka Trump did not keep her fans in suspense and shared her baby's pictures right away - thanks, Ivanka! Considering how many other concerns people have in their daily lives, at least this one was alleviated immediately; of course, now the interested parties will engage in the discussions as to whom the kid resembles most, so, never mind.
Kim K.'s ex-husband auctioned off the engagement ring - sniff; he also got much less for the dratted piece of jewelry than is was worth - double sniff.
Hillary Clinton was "slapped" with a parking ticket in London - pffffft! Also, considering her track record, I don't think she will end up paying it.
The next target in the war on drugs will be Oreo cookies - because they are as addictive as cocaine. I think we officially lost the right to make fun of superstitious inhabitants of the Middle Ages - I mean, we are "waging a war" on cookies, for pete's sake!
And, finally, it looks like Will and Kate were a bit naughty in their second year of college when they were sharing an apartment - because the landlady had to break the "no boys" rule.
Coffee this morning in my Disney Mini Bean Bag mug with the 7 Dwarfs.


Good Morning, peeps! Happy Tuesday! The weather still rocks - hurray for fall! George and Sniff both take turns trying to run into the hall - but any and all noises over there make them run back immediately. 
The crazy upstairs is up to her usual stuff - and today she is joined by a whole slew of other people, drilling, and banging.
According to Men's Health, the color of jeans can tell a lot about a guy's character, as well as his shoes - need to put this in use on the next people-watching expedition to the Park.
Currently trending at #1 - drum roll please - is none other than Kim Kardashian! She "revealed her secrets" to post-baby weigh loss!!! Profound and life-altering topic it is, indeed!
Mazal Tov to Ivanka Trump! It's a boy! Congrats to Donald on his 5th grandkid! Hopefully, that will promote him to work on a better hairdo. Also wondering if Ivanka got her own weight loss secrets up her sleeve, of if she would follow Kim's advice.
Sandra Oh is leaving Grey's Anatomy - sniff, sniff! Just the other day I accidentally discovered that that soap is still on - which made me wonder, once again, at the general mental abilities of the TV viewers.
Some kind of young British singer "recycled" Beyonce's dress - who said Beyonce had a copyright on wearing the said dress?
"30 of the Smartest Celebrities in Hollywood" - here is an oxymoron of the week for you, ladies and gents!
The latest victim of the government shutdown - the White House kitchen garden! It is being attacked by squirrels because the funding is shut for the human tenders. Aw, poor parteigenosse Michelle - my heart bleeds borsch for her and her beloved garden!
"7 ways to meet more dates" - I am trying to avoid them, thank you very much!
And, finally, "Justin Bieber Spouts a Manly Mustache" - it will take sooooo much more for him to appear manly, I can't begin to enumerate it.
Coffee this morning in my Coffee Bean/Tea Leaf mug.

Monday, October 14, 2013


Good Morning, peeps! Happy Monday! Shavua Tov! Wishing all of you a great week! The weather is rocking once again. George is still driving us a bit crazy about his food and still loves his huge Amazon box where he curls up to sleep after he is done complaining about the said food. Sniff did his battle cry, huge tail, crazy running routine again this morning, and is now sleeping on Baby Bro's bed.
Happy Columbus Day, peeps! Of course, it's a holiday that's only celebrated by government employees and the retailers, and gives an extra excuse to America-haters to bloviate; but to me the whole story is another example of Gd'w mysterious ways.
The latest issue of Glamour said good buy to the current Jake - oh, thank Heavens! The guy was sooo boring. We can only hope that his replacement will elevate the column once again.
Another barbarian clan is moving into our building - well, as long as they don't cook stinky fish...
Just saw a commercial for Starbucks and their Pike Place roast - for the first time, mind you, did I see an actual TV commercial of theirs; fascinating.
Currently trending at #1 is Kylie Jenner - because she was running away from the paparazzi, and Bruce flipped them off; why is either of this news, never mind the #1 news?
Trending at #6 is Jamie Foxx - because he is "in talks to play Martin Luther King Jr." I guess being an open racist always pays on his "side of the skin".
Macaulay Culkin "re-emerged" at the local Comic Con - apparently those things are good not just for the geeks and nerds.
People who chew popcorn at the movies are usually immune to the commercials at the beginning of the show - again, whose brilliant idea was it to run this study and, moreover, who supplied grants for it?!!
"Details of Assange's Life at Ecuadorian Embassy" - who is interested in this and why?
Colorado's Governor Hickenlooper claimed that after seeing how dysfunctional DC is, he is reconsidering his run in 2016 - aw, shucks, dude! How noble of you!
Justin Bieber made the news again, this time in South Korea - he "stormed" the DJ's booth and "demanded" hip hop; I guess the violin players in Moscow did not collect the requisite money yet.
And, finally, Will and Kate are about to reveal Georgie's godparents - well, since, unlike Teddy Lupin, he won't have Harry Potter as his godfather, the news are sort of anti-climatic.
Coffee this morning in my Disney Mini Plush Mickey and Friends mug.

Thursday, October 10, 2013


Good Morning, peeps! Happy Thursday! The weather is still a bit iffy, but not bad for NY October. George continues to drive us crazy with his insane feeding demands - but we still love the old coot. Sniff is back to his waiting by the bathroom door routine - and this time he sits right in the corner and waits for us. He was also reprimanded this morning for walking all over Baby Bro's laptop and leaving fur all over it. The said reprimand was met with his usual feline stare.
The crazy upstairs is up to her usual stuff.
Someone else is moving into our building - more screaming and cursing by the front door in 5, 4, 3...
The biggest entertainment at the Farm Market is observing various hippies (especially guys) buying greens - almost like a field trip to Bellevue.
Currently trending at #5 is Erin Brokovich - because she is started some kind of "grass root" campaign against some kind of birth control. Envisioning "Erin Brockovich II" with Julia Roberts playing the lead again and getting another Oscar for it.
Trending at #6 is Sheryl Crow - because, according to some kind of new book, she told about Lance's "blood procedures". Well, I guess she had to take off precious time out of her environmental crusades in order to do that; what a selfless dedication to the causes!
"Why some women aren't happy with Macy's" - are you ready for this? Because the prices on women's clothes are high! Wow! What a profound piece of journalism right here!
"Kanye ends feud with Jimmy Kimmel" - yo, Norway! 2 Peace Nobels right here!!!
One of the "Hunger Games" actor claimed that he is "mostly straight" - forgive me for the cliche, but who gives a rat's ass?
"Exercises for sleek, sexy legs" - how about exercises for healthy legs and the rest of your body?
"Miley Cyrus's next opportunity to shock" - I shudder to even imagine it; on the side note, her parents are bastards - that's my opinion, and I am sticking to it.
"Justin Bieber is Ripped! Trainer Reveals Workout Secrets" - how about starting the workout on his minuscule brain and non-existent manners?
And, finally, the perfume that Kate wore on her wedding day is now available for purchase - of course, wearing it does not guarantee you will attract a prince.
Coffee this morning in my huge Pooh mug that Natalie gave me.


Good Morning, peeps! Happy Wednesday! The weather is cloudy once again, but still not bad. George is currently on Baby Bro's naughty list, as he woke him up an hour earlier. Sniff was in a frisky mood again this morning; first he was emitting battle cries, after which he was running around like a crazy pony. Now both of them are sleeping: George on my bed and Sniff in the papasan on top of the guest pillow.
Toilet paper seems to be a hot commodity with the local barbarians, as a roll of it was recently stolen from the bathroom of the local laundromat.
Our dear Governor's office sent me an email to my "professional" account, telling me that they would just LOVE to help me find an employment - aw, such concern! Simply brought tears to my eyes!
Yahoo's new policy appears to be to flash a message along the lines of "you are my anti-spam hero" every time you empty the spam folder; considering how many e-mail accounts I have and how often I check them, it is beginning to feel a bit weird.
Currently trending at #1 is Betty White - because her wax figure was temporarily moved from Hollywood to DC. Interesting things happening in our nation's capital, what can I say.
Trending at #2 is Kris Jenner - because she and Bruce have officially announced their separation. That seems to be the latest family trend, no pun intended.
Trending at #7 is Beyonce - because you can now preview her "sexy" 2014 calendar; spare me!
There is also a wrong way to do laundry - as long as it looks and smells clean in the end, I really don't care about the right or wrong way of doing it, to be honest.
"Baywatch stars had a weight clause" - duh! Was is not obvious to begin with?!!
"Honey Boo Boo's family decorates for Halloween" - they shouldn't have bothered; they look Halloween-ready year around.
Someone decided to take a look down memory lane and look a the "many hairdos of John Travolta" - here is another Halloween idea for you.
Blair Underwood recently admitted that originally he did not want to take up role in Sex in the City, because he did not like the story line or the show's relations to race - stupid racist moron is as stupid racist moron does.
"Better term than 'plus-size'" - oh, who gives a rat's ass about the terms?!!! It's the stinking attitude that matters, not the terms!
And, finally, Bieber's new single supposedly "alludes" to his "romance" with Selena - aw, that also brought tears to me eyes!
Coffee this morning in my funky green mug from Yves Rocher.


Good Morning, peeps! Happy Tuesday! The weather improved vastly from yesterday. Sniff was extra frisky again last night, running around and making more noise than a small horse. This morning he came in to snuggle and, surprisingly, did not attempt to eat my blanket. George still does not know what he wants to eat; his latest was eating fresh diet kibble. Now he is sleeping on my bed, and, also surprisingly, also did not molest my blanket.
Baby Bro postulated that the tortoise that lives in Prospect Park Zoo moonlights for Brooklyn Public Library as a book deliverer. Considering how long it takes them to fill in some of the holds, the theory makes perfect sense.
Currently trending at #1 is Matt Lauer - because he interviewed Miley Cyrus, who, in turn, postulated in that interview that people over 40 don't have sex anymore. How did she come to that conclusion, and why is that the focal point of the said interview I don't really know and really don't want to know.
In similar news, Miley's mom "stole her pose" recently - no wonder the kid is so messed up.
Trending at #2 is Ashley Judd because she may have reconciled with her husband - as long as she stays away from politics and self-proclaimed fight for women's rights, I don't care about anything else she does.
Halle Berry announced that her new son's name is Maceo-Robert - another celeb baby with idiotic name. The usual prediction would be "poor kid, he is so getting killed later because of his stupid name"; but, considering, how many famous people give their offspring the most moronic names imaginable, the only kids who are in trouble are the ones with the "usual", "boring" names.
The fountain at the Bellagio in Vegas is supposedly one of the 8 greatest in the world - congrats to me, I have seen it both by day and by night!
Jerry Seinfeld became a latest celebrity in a long line of them to offer his two cents on what his secret to a happy marriage is - well, considering the rate of celebrity divorces, I simply marvel at their audacity to still blab about the topic.
Today's hairdo news come to you courtesy of Jada Pinkett Smith, whose "edgy" new look consists of a head that's half shaved and half covered in braids - classically elegant, what can I say.
Avril Lavinge got "all gussied up" for a night out with her hubby - considering her usual, hum, attire choices, that is a sure sign of love, ladies and gents!
And, finally, according to Slate Magazine blog, Bieber's "New Song Is Better Than You Were Probably Expecting It To Be" - which basically confirms my firm believe that anything that comes out of Slate is not to be believed.
Coffee this morning in my white glass from Target.

Tuesday, October 08, 2013


Good Morning, peeps! Happy Sunday! Shavua Tov! Wishing everyone a fantastic week! Ladies, I hope at least yesterday you had a nice Rosh Chodesh without too much work (and the hubbies were at least attentive). The weather is slightly on the blah-y side, but not bad. 
George can't decide what he wants to eat; treats, of course, are always welcome. Sniff, on the other hand, couldn't care less about the treats, but gets curiouser and curiouser about George's new food. He keeps sniffing it, tasting it, and then scratches the floor in attempts to cover it.
On Friday I decided to give the crazy upstairs a run for her money, but that, of course, is impossible.
Currently trending at #1 is Kris Jenner - because she was "gushing" about Kanye and what a "great dad" he is. Not to be obnoxious or anything, but, um, Kris, how would you know what a great parent looks like?
Trending at #7 is Kristen Stewart - because she stripped "down to boring underwear" in order to film a scene in her new movie. According to the detailed reports, it was a black bra and white underwear - very much newsworthy, indeed.
Miley Cyrus went on SNL to mock GOP, especially Michele Bachmann - how extremely refreshing and, most importantly, original!
Somebody named Rebel Wilson (no idea who that is) was put on the worst-dressed of the week list because she was walking around NY in a t-shirt with a huge picture of a cat on it - oh, give me a break! Big deal! There are so many uglier and scarier outfits to talk about.
Justin Bieber is on the short list for the "sexiest shirtless singer" - once again, people, learning some art history would have prevented that.
And, finally, there was a whole article dedicated to the new bed that Kate ordered for their renovated apartment at Kensington palace - come to think of it, I can also write a whole article about my bed, as I know of at least 3 people who used it before I got it, never mind what the cats do to it.
Coffee this morning in my black glass from Target.

Saturday, October 05, 2013


Good Morning, peeps! Happy Friday! The weather is getting uncomfortably warm for me  Last night Sniff kept looking at me snidely from half closed eyes - an achievement, if you ask me, as he was also half-asleep. And today I got hissed at while we were warring over my mattress - needless to say, his claws won (as they had a very nice grip on the mattress). George, on the other hand, is in kitty heaven right now, because he is surrounded by different size Amazon boxes.
The channel was changed from CNN to Travel Channel - thank you, Hashem!
Happy First Day Rosh Chodesh Heshvan! Ladies, remember - VERY LIGHT housework and gifts from your husbands! (Yea, I know, unicorns will fly).
We survived another day of the government shutdown.
Brooke Shields is currently trending at #7 because she "slammed" her ex during an interview. I really don't know what happened between those two, and don't know much about her ex, but , still, why?!!!
Kim Kardashian was "reunited" with her baby after her mini break in Paris, after which she immediately released a new picture of North "swaddled atop a cozy blanket" - what is this, an attempted at humor?
Texas McDonald's is beginning to institute a new dress code for costumers: "no shoes, no shirt, no service". Ah, if only we can institute something like this on the subway! "Manners of water buffalo - get off!"
Stana Katic showed up in a hot pink dress held up by giant safety pins - come on, lady! Your show is popular; there is no need for extra attention, me thinks.
"Women feel they are least attractive on Mondays" - I wonder who felt the need to compile these statistics.
A substance found in turmeric is supposed to be as good as Prozac - I guess Obamacare has officially kicked in.
Bieber professed love to his fans with a shirtless photo - oh, please! Who wants to see shirtless Bieber?!! Just take a bunch of teenage girls to the Met and show them the Greek and the Roman exhibits - way more interesting than any shirtless celebrity today (male or female).
Coffee this morning in my funky clear glass from Target.

Good Morning, peeps! Happy Thursday! The weather is a bit iffy, but not bad for an early October.
Woke up yesterday with scratches on my foot; both George and Sniff were questioned, but neither admitted to the deed. George is enjoying both his new Amazon boxes: the humongous one and the tiny one. Sniff is racing around the apartment. Earlier he decided to play mashgiach again and supervise the bathroom cleaning; hence he was locked up for his trouble.
According to Men's Health, red apples are the best for your health. Dudes, if I eat an apple at all, it's already an achievement; plus, I don't like red apples, period, so, leave me alone with your statistical data.
In the same august publication was a whole set of instructions on buying a bra for a girlfriend - because that's what we really, really want to get as a gift: underwear!
The country survived another day of the government shutdown with poor parteigenosse Michelle announcing that due to it her Twitter account would not really be updated - aw, cry me a river!
Currently trending at #6 is Chelsea Handler - because she split up with her boyfriend and also because she showed off "bikini body". The public wants to know if these incidents are related, and if yes, what was the cause and what was the effect? You can't just report something like this without further explanations!!
"What Kate Gosselin did with all her money" - does anyone really want to know?
A lot of brides would like to marry on 11/12/13 - I assume because getting married on a specific silly date is a guaranteed foundation for a happy and solid marriage. But, hey, the wedding goods purveyors are happy, at least.
George Clooney "revealed" that he had to wear Spanks for his latest movie - please get that picture out of my head.
Britney Spears "found it tough to play 'sexy' now" - because she is a mother. Congratulations on maturing, Britney!
The world's most expensive car costs only 52 mil - what kind of a whopper of the midlife crisis do you have to hit in order to get this one?!!
And, finally, Bieber announced that he will release a new song each Monday for the 10 consecutive weeks - just when you thought Mondays can't suck more than they do already.
Coffee this morning in my Aruba mug.


Good Morning, peeps! Happy Wednesday! The weather is rocking once again. George is in his huge Amazon box, from which he was gazing at me this morning with shiny eyes. Sniff will be put on the diet food as soon as the regular runs over, as he looks like he is gaining weight. In anticipation of this, he is running like a crazed antelope all over the place.
The crazy upstairs is up to her usual stuff.
Oatmeal sucks! I don't care how nutritious it is or how good it's supposed to be in the morning - it sucks and I never enjoyed it.
Conversations with liberals continue to provide interesting insights into their deranged psyche.
We officially survived the first day of government shutdown - which, of course, is not trending among the top ten right now.
But we could read about North West's future wardrobe, which includes snakeskin shoes - seriously? Definitely not in good taste, unlike the tastefully large diamond.
"Katie Holmes's sassy hot pink dress" - here is a headline for you! Who needs to know anything else?!!
Sweden is the supposedly the best country to grow old in - thanks, but no thanks; I prefer to grow old right here, in the USA, even though it ranked at only #8.
Tom Selleck was talking about his stash, which, apparently, receives a "ridiculous amount of attention" - here is another interesting topic to discuss.
And speaking of furloughed government workers - they have "free and discounted" meals, drinks, and activities available for them in DC. Even in this situation they score better than the private sector! Someone was even talking about pole-dancing classes - spare me!
Helen Fielding finally wrote 3rd Bridget Jones, where she killed Marc Darcy and left Bridget a merry widow - are you kidding me, Helen?!!! Who needs this book then?!!
And, finally, Will and Kate are "reportedly building a sunroom" for their country home - sometimes it does pay to be royal.
Coffee this morning in my San Fran latte mug.

Good Morning, peeps! Happy Tuesday! The weather rocks once again! Happy October 1st, for whatever it's worth. 
Cats got new Amazon box, which is very big, and for which, of course, they did a big battle. So far George is sleeping in in, and Sniff is once again sleeping in the cat house. 
So, the the big government shut down did happen. Mind you, the tax collection was not halted. I sort of feel bad for the people who decided to tour DC this week - all the attractions are closed. Of course, they can always observe the horror show in the White House.
Kelly Ripa spent 515 USDs on a pair of strangely looking shoes - unlike the previously mentioned occupant of the White House and his lady fair, she spent her own money, so, let her enjoy her silly shoes.
Pippa Middleton is not officially engaged, but she is already talking about what kind of wedding she would like to have - I sincerely hope that would not scare her unofficial bridegroom.
"Bieber get carried up Great Wall of China" - glad I did not see it.
Also saw Miley's Rolling Stone cover yesterday - another thing I really did not want to see.
Coffee this morning did not happen as there were mixed signals about who was getting milk.


Good Morning, peeps! Happy Monday! The weather rocks! 
Shana Tova to all of you! I hope the Holidays were awesome, the food and wine great and plentiful, the family and friends fun (for the most part), and, most importantly, I hope we were all inscribed and sealed for a great, blessed, sweet, healthy, happy, and prosperous year!
Happy Belated National Coffee Day - which was spent, oh shame, drinking DD!
Speaking of which - Starbucks definitely arrived in our area, as confirmed by their coffee cups thrown around our subway stop.
Nancy Meyer is beginning to get on my nerves - her advertisements are all over the net! I am not a guy, Nancy!
Another interesting term to be learned: "tastefully large diamond" - are they comparing notes with some of our ladies? What constitutes tasteful and when does it cross into other territory? Are we talking carats, shape, size, what?
Khloe Kardashian called her hubby a moron, which experts interpreted as "first cracks in marriage" - really? What planet are they from?
Her sister Kim, meanwhile, left her baby for the first time - to travel to Paris. Wow! Meanwhile, I remember the anxiety of some new moms when they left their baby for the first time in order to replenish the diaper supply.
"Why autumn is the season to fall in love" - because, according to some posh researchers, winter is coming, and we feel the need to nest. Really?!! They got grant for this study?!!!
Meanwhile, some Saudi Arabian cleric claimed that "women who drive risk bearing children with clinical problems" - it looks like his mother was driving a lot as she managed to produce such a misogynistic moron and blowhard.
And, finally, Kate, Will, and Georgie are moving into Kensington Palace this week - having visited the place personally, I can officially say "nice diggs!"
No coffee yet as someone who should remain nameless finished my milk and did not replenish it yet.
