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!

MORNING UPDATE, June 1, 2015

Good Morning, peeps! Happy Monday! Happy first day of June! It's cloudy and rainy outside, but no humidity, so I am happy. George and Sniff developed a taste for minced dinners, which were previously ignored in favor of cubed ones.

Archbishop Tutu writes religious books for kids about love and peace - here is another definition of chutzpah for you. 

Crazy upstairs is strangely silent.

Currently trending at #5 are sandals for women - considering what else is trending, this should be the top spot (or maybe I just love sandals that much).
"Bruce Jenner Reveals Caitlin on Vanity Fair Cover" - good luck to both of their kids! Actually, never mind.
Speaking of which - Kim Kardashian is pregnant. That kid definitely needs all the luck he or she can get.
"Dress like Jane Fonda" - another lesson on how to be a traitor to the best country in the world and profit hugely from it.
"Paltrow's new competition" - "Apparently, being an actress, model, or reality TV star isn’t enough for some stars, and in the past couple of years several well known celebrities have diversified their career offerings towards advising you and I how to best live our lives." Basically, from "do not disturb the disturbed" category.
"Eco-conscious entertainers hoping to take the lead on water conservation talk proudly of their drought-friendly gardens." - give them all a  Presidential Medal of Honor!
"TSA agents fail 67 out of 70 security tests" - we should all feel sooo safe right about now.

And, finally, "The Royals Are Adorable Tourists" - they are just adorable.

Coffee this morning in my Harry Potter mug, new edition.

MORNING UPDATE, June 2, 2015

Good Morning, peeps! Happy Tuesday! It's still rainy and cold outside - yes!! Today cats decided that minced tuna is not such fun after all, but relented in the end.

Here is another extremely talented guy who recently came up with a collection of poetry for kids - Nick Cannon!

Currently trending at #1 is Goldie Hawn - because she came up with the explanation of why she never married Kurt Russel. According to her, "a lasting relationship isn't about marriage". What can I tell you - it's always amusing to see when guys come up with explanations of why they never marry the love of their lives, but now I see that's it's doubly amusing to see a woman do the same.
Trending at #2 is Robert Downey Jr. - because he apparently needs his own furniture when he travels to movie locations. Interesting quirk, but very mild by Hollywood standards - especially if he pays the shipping costs.
"The complex Jenner-Kardashian relationship" - there are mental health professionals to untangle the "complexity".
"2015 hurricane season: What to expect" - um, hurricanes?
"How healthy is your bread?" - it's bread, you spoiled brats! Eat and enjoy!
"Broken leg won't sideline Kerry from Iran talks" - how courageous of him!
"4 Reasons You Shouldn't Buy A Diamond Ring" - ladies, have at them!
And, finally, "Chelsea Clinton’s Daughter May Own the Last Dress Oscar de la Renta Ever Made" - yea, this family is one of the working class, man, no denial about it.

Coffee this morning in my blue wine glass.

MORNING UPDATE, June 8, 2015

Good Morning, peeps! Happy Monday! The weather is a bit strange, but breathable - and that's all I am asking of it, honestly! Cats demolished another can of tuna, had another fight, and are now sunning themselves.

The crazy upstairs is silent.

Currently trending at #9 are Father's Day gift - why not at #1?
"Starbucks celebrates Frappuccino's 20th birthday" - I officially feel old.
"How Beyoncé maintains her 'bootylicious' body" - aside from usual nonsense about diet and exercise offered to women this time, why is nobody offended by the word "bootylicious" itself?
"Personal side of Clinton" - here is a topic for a horror movie.
"Improved sales of whole-milk yogurts suggest a growing preference for minimally processed dairy products, experts say" - wow! My opinion is vindicated - again!
"Most underrated honeymoon destination" - as it's in Turkey, I sort of see why it's "underrated".
"Christie would crack down on pot as President" - great platform, Governor! You got my vote only under extreme duress!
"J. Lo. ditches 'nude' for new" - is it her attempt to counteract "my ass was too hot for Morocco" statement?
"Ariana Grande's Necessary Call For Feminism and Sisterhood" - predictably, she quotes Gloria Steinem, but mentions nothing about women being able to defend themselves.

"$20 bottled water is so popular it's sold out" - world never runs out of suckers.

Coffee this morning in my US Virgin Islands mug, aka "get a grip".

MORNING UPDATE, June 19, 2015

Good Morning, peeps! Happy Friday! Happy Erev Shabat! The weather is getting summer-y - and I would dearly love to kick everyone who was complaining about the cold two weeks ago. George decided that he likes pate after all - and Sniff decided to listen to the old coot.

For reasons unknown I have been listening to the Conquest of Paradise - a lot, and also contemplating on the Journey of Columbus.

Yesterday was the anniversary of the battle of Waterloo - here is another tyrant who was supposedly brought down by Russians.

Crazy upstairs decided to have extra fun and to perform her routine after nine p.m. EST.

Currently trending at #3 is Kate Mckinnon - because she, together with Melissa McCarthy (trending at #10), and Kristen Wiig (not trending), are filming "femme-powered Ghostbusters reboot'. Here is to female empowerment! We need more women to fight ghosts - or something.
Jerry Hall just jumped to #1 - for reasons completely unknown.
"7 shortcuts to a chick, sophisticated home" - oh, please. All you need is money.
"Feast your eyes on street food around the world" - all I can think of is "how sanitary was the prep process?"
"Russia willing to consider financial aid for Greece" - let's raise our glasses to the theater of the absurd!
"The Unexpected Beauty Product You Can Find at Starbucks" - their napkins "work great as blotting papers"! How poor are we getting already?!!
Naomi Campbell still fits into her dress from 1998 - and I still fit into my swimsuit from 2008. So, what's the big deal?
And, finally, Mary Claire UK did a whole spread on Kate's jewelry - you can find what her faves are, who designed them, what kind of stones went into it, and, most importantly, can you afford it or not.

Coffee this morning in the disposable cup from the bagel place next to the blissfully almost-quiet laundromat.

Tuesday, February 19, 2019

MORNING UPDATE, September 21, 2012

Good Morning, peeps! Happy Friday! Happy Erev Shabat! The weather rocks again! George is maintaining the occupancy of the cat house. 

Just saw something called "leather leggings" - Brighton's influence definitely expanded beyond South Brooklyn. Lady Gaga is trending at #3 because of her diet - is she going to eat her wardrobe now? Kathy Griffin is at #1 because she was photographed without makeup while jogging - at least she did not spew her usual garbage at the time (and, yes, she looks ugly). Then there is a scary new hallucinogen around that is very dangerous to teens - I think it's called "Obama's cult of personality". Obama claimed that his biggest failure was his inability to pass "comprehensive immigration reform" aka amnesty, and, of course, blamed Republicans for it (currently trending at #2) - thank Gd, and yay to our side! I am also wondering is there is any way he can blame Calvin Coolidge for his disastrous presidency - because blaming Lincoln would be passe. And at #4 is somebody called Demi Lovato (no idea who that is) - who is there because of her bangs, which are now blond; yea, as always, hair is extremely important. And last, but extremely important - people who were sleeping by the Apple store were able to get their I phones 5 at 8 am EST! 

Coffee this morning in my white glass from Target.

MORNING UPDATE, September 24, 2012

Good Morning, peeps! And, yes, it is officially morning till 1 pm est! Happy Monday! The weather is beautiful - hurray, fall! 

The biggest buzz this morning - the fashions from the Emmys; the not so huge buzz - how many people at the Emmys admitted to planning to vote for Romney. Another horrible line from the Emmys - Mad Men got 17 nominations and no Emmy - my heart bleeds borsch. Jo Rowling is selling her house in Edinburgh for only a few mil - any takers? I mean, she did write the last HPs in there! Then there is a list of best sandwiches in the US - none of them looks like parteigenosse Michelle would approve of; on the other hand, American children do not approve of Michelle-approved school lunches. There is also a list of best dresses for your 20s, 30s, and 40s (life stops after 49?); not surprisingly, I never possessed even one of the recommended garments. And last, but not least: more reasons to eat chocolate - the biggest of which is you eat whatever the heck you want (in moderation), and enjoy! 

Coffee this morning in my Dalmatians mug.

MORNING UPDATE, September 25, 2012

Good Morning, peeps! Happy Tuesday! Happy Erev Yom Kippur! The weather is gorgeous once again - yippee! 

The plot thickens - now somebody stole my detergent at the laundromat! Our pathetic excuse of a President is polluting our fair city today and addressing the ultimate polluter of our fair city - UN. He (Barry) is warning Iran - Iranians are in panic and violently shaking in their turbans. He is also planning to work with kiddies after he is done trashing our country - where is the spittoon when you need one? Elizabeth Shue is trending at # 2 due to her diet - and here I thought she looked really cute in Karate Kid. Mila Kunis is trending at #2 because she was spotted with Ashton Kutcher in matching t-shirts, and they were also caught smooching - I wonder if she is also into Kabalah. And at #7 is global bacon shortage - I really hope that happened because somebody bombarded our dear first cousins with it. 

Coffee this morning in my funky clear glass from Targe

MORNING UPDATE, September 27, 2012

Good Morning, peeps! Happy Thursday! Shana Tova! I hope everyone had an uplifting Yom Kippur - and that we were all sealed in the Book of Life! 

A dude bought a 73g futuristic glass pool table, but now claims that there is a flaw and is suing the makers - buddy, we should all have your problems. A new study came out claiming that there are 6 muscle groups on a male body that women love - brain is not a muscle; heart is, though, but was not mentioned in the study. Samuel L. Jackson is trending at #3 because he made an anti-Romney movie clip - big whoop; if a black celebrity makes an anti-Obama video, that would be a piece of breaking news. Michael Jackson's house is for sale; it features 7 bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, and a wine seller - forgive me, but barf! You could also purchase a penthouse on UES that once belonged to Frank Sinatra - I am sure it would be a perfect pad for an aspiring hound dog. And Reese Witherspoon and husband welcomed a baby boy - mazal tov, and when the heck did she get remarried? I seems I am not abreast of the current events as much as I thought. 

Coffee this morning in my Disney Bean Bag mug with the Seven Dwarfs - not to be confused with Disney Bean Bag mug with Mickey and Minnie.

MORNING UPDATE, September 30, 2012

Good Morning, peeps! Happy Sunday! Happy Erev Succot! George is sleeping in the cat house; Curry is sleeping in the kitchen in anticipation of chicken. 

Jo Rowling's new book - for adults!!- just came out; some say to "mixed reviews", and some say to "rave reviews"; I am reserving my review till I feel like reading it. Presidential debates are trending at #7 - really? They generated that much excitement? Natalie Portman went blond recently - that being the front page news I understand, but the debates? Fe! And Christie's is preparing a big Bond action in honor of Bond's 50th anniversary - heck, has it been that long? I feel old. And Brice Willis is trending at #1 because of his weight loss!! Oh, for effs sake! In the same vein, people who are retiring are not taking into account the cost of extra meals out - because, hey, they have all the time in the world to eat out! But they should definitely watch out for enviros, whose tireless efforts are constantly driving up the cost of food, and, of course, the food police with parteigenosse Michelle in the lead. And killer whales got playful somewhere off the coast of Mexico - stole some product from the cartels, or just got some? 

Coffee this morning in my Disney Bean Bag mug with Mickey and Minnie - not to be confused to Disney Bean Bag mug with the Seven Dwarfs. 

MORNING UPDATE, October 3, 2012

Good Morning, peeps! Happy Wednesday! Happy First Day of Chol Chamoed! The weather stinks slightly - but as long as it's not raining buckets, we are OK.

Today is Hussein's and Michelle's 20th wedding anniversary - aw, barf! I wonder what they would chomp on to celebrate - and something tells me it would not be alfalfa sprouts. American birth rate is declining for the fourth year in a row - gee, I wonder what the cause may be! Jennifer Lopez's daughter is trending at #2 - because her genius mommy took her to some kind of fashion show, and the poor girl looked "cute, but bored" - no kidding! Giselle was made up as biker chick - as long as she stays away from her "environmental activism", I don't give a rat's tail. And eggs, berries, and leafy greens were called "risky foods" - which only proves, once again, that you should enjoy all the foods and use your head at all times. And forest service reopened a hiking trail in the Olympic National forest; but they had to fight "unruly mountain goats" with paintball guns - man against the goat! 

Coffee this morning in my personalized mug from Hershey park.

MORNING UPDATE, October 4, 2012

Good Morning, peeps! Happy Thursday! Happy second day of Chol Hamoed! The weather is not the best, but bearable - and "seasonal". 

Following my friend Jimmie's example - tomorrow is garbage pick up, so I have to make sure to hug and kiss my "sanitation workers", so they don't feel marginalized by evil capitalist society (or the ghetto public residing in my neighbourhood, for that matter). Facebook hit one billion mark - congrats! #1 trending right now: Rihanna and Chris Brown were caught cuddling, so it looks like they may be back together - good luck, Rihanna! Out of 10 best cities in USA, San Fran is #1 - for whom, homos? Our fair city is #7, but we beat everyone with the number of the museums - 356! And DC is number 3 - maniacal laughter! Alton Brown was talking about tempura, and Marc Summers is talking about fair food like corn dogs, funnel cakes, and cotton candy! Where are you, parteigenosse Michelle? I guess still kicking your hubby for stinking up your 20th anniversary, so the peasants can talk about fattening junk food for now. And here is a fantastic header: "Batman charged with obstructing Michigan police" (which is currently trending at #4). And Jennifer Aniston has koi pond in her living room - I had a very similar idea in mind for my space until George Hamilton Borukhov joined our household. 

Coffee this morning in my green Target mug.

MORNING UPDATE, October 5, 2012

Good Morning, peeps! Happy Friday! Happy Erev Shabat! Happy Third Day Chol Hamoed! The weather finally rocks and beacons! 

The big news 2 days after Obama's wonderful performance at the debate is the unemployment rate falling below 8% (first time in 44 months!!) - I wonder how many people were cut from the unemployment benefits to get to this magical number. Charlize Theron is trending at #1 because her childhood home appears to be cursed - just like the rest of the South Africa, which allowed barbarians to come to power. Birth control is trending at #5, due to the variety of it - please, please inform the so-called inner city black community and the occupying illegals of this very cost-effective bounty. Christina Hendricks is trending at # 3 due to (what else) her figure - of, for effs sake! Yes, she looks like a woman, thank Gd! Next! And it turns out that JFK was the biggest fan of James Bond - figures; both were drunks and pathological womanizers; the only difference - one was invincible, and the other was not. And an emu stopped traffic in Florida because he was running on a busy highway in search of a mate - typical male behavior; this one was just cuter than my usual dates. 

Coffee this morning in my funky glass cappuccino mug; Benny's ice cold fat free milk in Chivas glass.

MORNING UPDATE, October 7, 2012

Good Morning, peeps! Happy Sunday! Happy Hashana Raba! The weather can be described with two words - yuck and blah. 

Egyptian activists are preserving the "revolutionary graffiti" - which, I guess, is much easier than preserving the lives of Egyptian Christians. Pointy shoes are "it" for fall - hell and damnation, that means I won't be able to find shoes for fall yet again! Beyoncé is supposed to be looking better with age - and also not shy about her racism. Mila Kunis replaced Rihanna as the sexiest woman alive, according to Esquire - I guess I have to be a man in order to consider either of them sexy. Then there is a list of 5 traits employers look for in the potential employees - sadly, professional ethics are not on the list. And somebody named Lisa Lampanelli is trending at #1 - I had no idea who she was, so I checked it out; it's a comedienne, who is trending on top because she lost 80 lb. - figures (pun not intended). Prius is trending at #7, showing all the deals for that wonder car - the usual way enviros fight for their causes: drive the gas prices sky high, thereby convincing the logically unencumbered to shop for a hybrid cars; most of it done with tax dollars and almost total complicity of the government. 

Coffee this morning in my musical notes mug.

MORNING UPDATE, October 10, 2012

Good Morning, peeps! Happy Wednesday! The weather is slightly yucky and blah-y, despite the glowing predictions made on Sunday - which proves, once again, that all the Global Climate Change alarms are a bunch of garbage. 

Stacey Dash is trending at #1, and this time it's not her hair, weight loss, or latest outfit - this time we had a chance to witness, once again, how "tolerant" the left side is; I am just very surprised it actually shot to #1. On the other hand, Mila Kunis is at # 2 due to her Esquire cover shot - that is very normal and predictable. And a couple from Hong Kong is suing an "education consultant" in Boston because they shelled out lots of dough for their son to get into Harvard, and he did not - naïve morons; they don't even realize what a lucky escape their kid had! And the original title for Pretty Woman was Three Thousand - much closer to the script, if you ask me. Also, Angelina's engagement ring is 16 karats - well, after all these years of coming up to scratch, I guess Brad owed it to her. And I now have 4 cups of tea on the table. 

Coffee this morning in my funky glass cappuccino mug.

MORNING UPDATE, October 11, 2012

Good Morning, peeps! Happy Thursday! The weather is very nice for October. I forgot to claim my free chocolates for at least 3 months, but October is covered! Still got 3 bottles of wine left over from the Holidays - make of that what you want.

Today is National Coming Out Day - so, brace yourselves for more than usual homosexual whining and gross garbage. Zumba scandal is trending at #3 because one of the Zumba studios in Maine turned out to be a brothel - nice way to diversify your exercise routine! Out of 5 most expensive colleges in US 3 are located in Empire State - way to go! At #1 is Sara Lawrence, whose "notable alumni include Barbara Walters, Yoko Ono and Rahm Emanuel" - the price is beginning to make sense. NYU, whose notable alumni includes Benny, is at #2, and Columbia is, surprisingly, at #4. Scott Brown is trending at #10 because he went one night without mentioning his opponent's heritage - I guess he needed to recharge for more fake Indian jokes. And soda vending machines are forced to go the way of sigs - offering you "subtle" reminders about the "badness" of soda - of, for effs sake! And guys should never, ever order appletinis - not because it's a girlie drink, but because it is made of all processed ingredients - nice show of manhood that is! 

Coffee this morning in my Harry Potter mug.

MORNING UPDATE, October 12, 2012

Good Morning, peeps! Happy Friday! Happy Erev Shabat! Weather is slightly blah-y, but it's October. I opted out of watching the debate last night, and went food shopping instead - Gd bless this country, it is still fun (food shopping, not the politics). 

Chocolate is trending at #5 right now - for no apparent reason other than people are searching for chocolate that much - yay, hurray! We definitely need anti-Dementor medicine more than ever. And critics are stunned, stunned I am telling you because Nobel Peace Prize was given to European Union - but giving it to terrorist murderer looks to be OK. Another huge stunner: the price of stamps is going up - heck, you could have knocked me down with an F, I was so surprised! And a new father somewhere in England build a top speed stroller that can go as fast as 50 mph - surprisingly, his girlfriend does not let him put their son in it; typical male - instead of helping with the kid, he plays around with toys. Whitney Houston's daughter, all of 19 years old, is engaged - mazal tov! And, her engagement ring looks a lot like the one William gave to Kate - I am sure that is precisely what our Founding Fathers were dreaming about. 

Coffee this morning in my San Fran latte mug; Benny's fat free milk in Chivas cup.

MORNING UPDATE, October 14, 2012

Good Morning, peeps! Happy Sunday! The weather is seasonal for a mid-October day in New York. Our dad henceforth will be known in certain circles as the man who ate an eagle back in 1958. 

Drew Barrymore came up with her own brand of Pinot Grigio - well, as long as she is not mixed up in any anti-Israeli business, let her enjoy herself. Then there is a list of 10 favorite hunks who have gone gray - since none of them are my favorites, or, for that matter, were never considered hunks by me, I don't much care. Plus, at least half of that list is boycotted by yours truly for being anti-American bastards, and all the actors I think were hunks - and patriots - are dead; well, such are the times. Slick Willy is trending at # 5 because he is back at the campaign trail - at least this time around he does not have Arkansas state troopers and smaller than before contingent of Secret Service to act as his personal procurers. "Bruce rallies for Obama" - as my mom very nicely put it, any person of means who actively campaigns for this socialist pig deserves, and should be, robbed blind by him. Renewable energy is trending at #8 - the hot air coming out of Al Gore was not on the list. 

Coffee this morning in my white glass from Target.

MORNING UPDDATE, October 15, 2012

Good Morning, peeps! Happy Monday! It's overcast outside of my window - but as long as there is no torrential rains, I am OK with it. 

New variation on the old theme: "Don't make war, make chicken soup with matza balls - and everyone will be happy!" Have to try it on Muslims some time - after all, if the chickens are kosher, then their halal problems are solved. Holly Madison is trending at #1 because she "dished up on her pregnancy and the baby names" - the amount of interest pregnant celebrities generate somehow always brings to mind a certain Jewish hairdresser. And in Arkansas they once again honored the memory of a confederate spy - the chutzpah of these Southern rednecks knows no bounds! There is also a list of 10 hottest materials for a kitchen countertops - sheesh, some people still have money to renovate their kitchens? And a Pakistani teenager shot by Taliban was transferred to England for further treatment - they really want to finish her off by sending her to be treated there. And speaking of real estate - there is a 2 bedroom apartment on Central Park South that can be had for a mere 50 million hard currency! 

Coffee this morning in my big Winnie The Pooh mug.

MORNING UPDATE, October 16, 2012

Good Morning, peeps! Happy Tuesday! Happy Rosh Chodesh Heshvan! Ladies, please remind your husbands that you are due a Rosh Chodesh gift - and a relieve from household chores you don't like. The weather is great for mid-October day in New York! My pets decided that the corner of my desk reserved for my note pad is reserved for their behinds - and that my keyboard is excellent tail-resting spot. 

Poor Hilary - she got shafted by her party yet again! First they submarined her candidacy in order to propel Comrade Hussein to the White House, and now they are throwing her under the bus so he can stay there - and that is her reward for all she has done for the party, beginning with attack on Nixon? No honor among thieves! Tina Fey is trending at #1 - this time not because she is making fun of a beautiful Republican candidate (Bachmann is out of the race), but because she will co-host Golden Globes, which, I guess, is very important too; plus, considering her actions against the right-wingers - she deserves it. Romney and The View are trending at #4, because he refused to appear at this august gathering; moreover, according to Glamour, he also refused the interview with that intellectual publication - Sandra Fluke and her followers are demanding apology in 5, 4, 3...And Daniel Craig and Havier Bardem were discussing their "suggestive moment" in a new Bond movie - signs of times and YUK!!! And finally, there are 57 rules to men's suits, which I can combine to 3 - make sure it fits, make sure all buttons are attached, and clean it often! 

Coffee this morning in my striped glass from Target.

MORNING UPDATE, October 17, 2012

Good Morning, peeps! Happy Wednesday! The weather promises to be nice for this time of the year. 

Happy Rosh Chodesh Cheshvan! Ladies, please remind your spouses that they got another chance to give you Rosh Chodesh present and do the household chores (engaged men get to practice with gift-giving as well). According to CNN pole, Romney won another debate last night - Yahoo disagrees. Jo Rowling admitted that she does not like fantasy and sci-fi books - neither do I, her book being a rare exception. Victoria's Secret unveiled their latest million bucks lingerie set - let the salivating for both men and women begin! Ashton Kutcher is trending at #3 because of his public romance with Mila Kunis, while he is still technically married to Demi - oh, for effs sake! Why is this so bloody shocking? Most expensive zip code in the country still belongs to Manhattan - UES, naturally; go us! And the 3 highest paid women in entertainment: #3 - Taylor Swift; #2 - Britney Spears; and #1 - Oprah (which proves what a racist and female-hating country we are). And Gap chickened out and pulled their "Manifest Destiny" t-shirts, because the slogan is supposed to represent America's white supremacist tendencies - which, I am sure, was a big surprise to about 90% of American blacks who value history oh so damn much, never mind the American Destiny! It looks like Benny drunk milk from Chivas glass again - but this time it was a full-fat one. 

Coffee this morning in my green Yves Rocher mug.

MORNING UPDATE, October 18, 2012

Good Morning, peeps! Happy Thursday! The weather promises to be pretty enjoyable. 

Eminem is 40? Gosh, time flies - even when you are not having fun! Matthew Fox had to go on a special diet in preparation for his latest movie, which his Italian mother did not like - ah, Italian and Jewish mothers who always have to feed their kids! Also, there is a guy in England who legally changed his name to Darth Vader, and was recently punched by another dude who suspect Vader of having affair with his wife - I guess dark force entered him together with the new name. Ian McKellen almost refused to go back to his role as Gandalf because it's not challenging enough - I agree with you, Mr. McKellen. Gandalf if a challenging role, but not in these sucky movies; incidentally, loved you as Chauvelin! Bob Schieffer is trending at #6, because he will be the last moderator for the Presidential debate - which proves once again that the moderators are all leftie hacks and not impartial, as we are supposed to believe. Alton Brown was talking about Brussel sprouts yesterday, so I was afraid the food police had gotten to him - today is was a red velvet cake; whew! And Mark Summers is still talking about America's fave munchies - did you know that Dr. Pepper is one year older than Coke? 

Coffee this morning in my huge Winnie the Pooh mug that I got when the first Disney store was still operational.

MORNING UPDATE, October 19, 2012

Good Morning, peeps! Happy Friday! Happy Erev Shabat! The weather stinks slightly. 

Charlie Sheen is no longer a highest paying actor, which mantle he lost to no other than Ashton Kutcher; so, repeated drunken meltdowns are severely punished by the entertainment industry - unlike the repeated anti-American propaganda, sympathy to the terrorists, and treason. The First Lady of North Korea has not been seen for more than 40 days - since when is the disappearance of anyone in North Korea newsworthy? Rosie O'Donnell wants to renovate Honey Boo Boo's home - aw! Since when is she so concerned with the plight of the red necks? Is it because Honey Boo Boo endorsed comrade Hussein's candidacy? And Victoria's Secret has come under fire for "rampant airbrushing" - oh, give me a break! Guys don't care! And, surprise, surprise - a lot of women actually want gift cards for the Holidays, and guys just won't give them - I guess I do belong to the majority of women, after all. And, as it turns out, the owner of the Venetian in Vegas, along with the Marriott Group, both donated big bucks to the Romney campaign - I knew there was a reason I loved those hotels! 

Coffee this morning in my funky clear glass from Target.
