Are you ready to cringe?
Just so you all know, my newest, favorite expression is “EEK” and though I rarely use exclamation points, in the case of Cecilia Cassini, EEK! Sure, it is very admirable that a ten year old has a vocation but in this instance, a muzzle would be the must-have accessory for this tangerine. (To know what I mean by tangerine see below.)
Cecilia's motto is: Shop in fashion, Live with passion. Shop with passion, Live with fashion. I have a headache.
The dress Cecilia is wearing on the purple carpet looks like a costume from a kindergarten play. Throwing butterfly wings on a dress otherwise worn by one of the Real Housewives of Orange County is not fashion. Check out the publicist behind Cecilia. I would sooner kill myself. I would love to hear what Tavi Gevinson has to say about her protege. Though, it looks like they both went to the same fashion school called Balls of Fabric Shmoogled On Their Head University.

Here's a look from the now defunked Zooey Deschanel collection.
Now here’s a story that makes me cringe. Zooey Deschanel, the indie film darling is suing Steve Madden for a couple of million bucks from some sort of celebrity designer deal gone awry. First of all, relax girl, two movies in the can does not make you a Kardashian. And second of all, why isn’t being an indie darling enough for you? Sure, you need more cash…but frankly, to destroy your brand so early in the game…well…I for one would not cast you in anything now that your fashion stripes are showing..a.k.a. willingness to whore yourself. And I use the word “whore” in the most loving way because Steve Madden is a bit downmarket or mass market, if you ask me. And just because you have C-H-A-N-E-L in your last name does not make you a designer. A wanna-be…maybe. The bottom line is, you were selling your name and it all went south. Boo-hoo, Marlene. And wait. Didn’t Zooey just launch a music career like two seconds ago? How could she possibly think that this Steve Madden deal would serve that process? It would give her the lamest cred…as opposed to street. Girl, focus on your acting. Do some television. That should not be beneath you.

Happy Groundhog's day!
Just kidding, this is the dumbest holiday on the American calendar. It is perpetrated by the Robber Barons of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, population: 6,271. Their only goal is to make money by convincing us that they can tell the future.
This is completely ludicrous! There are only two people who can tell the future, this fortune teller next to the freeway, and a shaman I met at Machu Picchu (he was visiting from Toronto.) The people of Punxsutawney try to convince the American public that they know when winter will happen, by parading around a "groundhog."
What's a "groundhog" anyway? I thought they were pork sausage patties. Turns out they are a large rodent. Some people call them woodchucks, whistle-pigs, and land-beavers. All distractions from what they really are: ANNOYING. I have proof...
Why would such a stupid-idiot-jerky-moron, be able to know whether or not winter was over? Did this groundhog study meteorology? Has he a degree in atmospheric science? I trust scientists, not some mystical ground squirrel.
I'm believe that Punxsutawney Phil is literally a puppet of the town's residents. He commits the community's sins, because he is a marionette. They use weather charts to figure out if winter is six weeks away, then they make it seem like a rodent is talking, when in fact it's a deceitful Punxsutawney resident.
I think this conspiracy is far reaching. Isn't it interesting that an actor in the film Groundhog's Day, was also in the only other movie to star a marmot?
I believe that Bill Murray brought the fake gopher from Caddy Shack, to Punxsutawney so they could use it to fool the masses for years to come. The townspeople benefit from a correct answer from the faux-pher, because he brings the community a steady income.
This year the town is exploiting phone bills by asking people to text 'Groundhog' to 247365. They'll supposedly "get a text from Punxsutawney Phil."
Really? A groundhog that can send text messages? This is so fake.
Despite the criminal mastery that goes into this it's actually pretty irrelevant for me. I don't know about seasons, I'm from California. I surf to school, and rollerblade with celebrities. I'm not familiar with this "Winter" you keep talking about. All I know is that some days it's a little too cold for shorts, in the morning.
If we don't stop Punxsutawney, they'll take over the world. You can quote me on that.
I felt bad about dissing your favorite holiday, so I made you an e-card.

Think back to the last big gathering you had with family or friends. Maybe it was Thanksgiving dinner and your house was full of people -- some you knew well, others you just met. No matter how great the day ended up being, one person could have easily ruined it. Perhaps one person did.
Inevitably you'll hear someone say, "There's one in every family."
These are spot on - good read.Think back to the last big gathering you had with family or friends. Maybe it was... more
Reading through this rather annoying list of annoying co-worker habits, I realized that I'm a bona fide annoyance to everyone around me.
I dole out advice, I yearn for the good ol' days, I suspect I smell like herbs and spices and what not, I always have a better story (I mean, my stories are great).
Oh well. At least I can admit it.

This is really, really annoying but once you've heard it, it's impossible to get the tune out of your head. You have been warned....
And just in case you want to sing along, here are the lyrics:
Look at my horse
My horse is amazing
Give it a lick
Mmm - it tastes just like raisins
Have a stroke of its mane
It turns into a plane
And then it turns back again
When you tug on its winkie
Eww that's dirty
Do you think so?
Well I better not show you where
The lemonade is made
Mmm - sweet lemonade
Yeah sweet lemonade
Get on my horse
I'll take you round the universe
And all the other places too
I think you'll find that the universe pretty much covers everything
Shut up woman get on my horse
Get on my horseThis is really, really annoying but once you've heard it, it's impossible to... more
"So, you know, it is what it is, but Americans are totally annoyed by the use of "whatever" in conversations.
The popular slacker term of indifference was found "most annoying in conversation" by 47 percent of Americans surveyed in a Marist College poll released Wednesday.
"Whatever" easily beat out "you know," which especially grated a quarter of respondents. The other annoying contenders were "anyway" (at 7 percent), "it is what it is" (11 percent) and "at the end of the day" (2 percent).
"Whatever" -- pronounced "WHAT'-ehv-errr" when exasperated -- is an expression with staying power. Immortalized in song by Nirvana ("oh well, whatever, nevermind") in 1991, popularized by the Valley girls in "Clueless" later that decade, it is still commonly used, often by younger people.
It can be an all-purpose argument-ender or a signal of apathy. And it can really be annoying. The poll found "whatever" to be consistently disliked by Americans regardless of their race, gender, age, income or where they live.
"It doesn't surprise me because 'whatever' is in a special class, probably," said Michael Adams, author of "Slang: The People's Poetry" and an associate professor of English at Indiana University. "It's a word that -- and it depends how a speaker uses it -- can suggest dismissiveness."
Adams, who was not involved in the poll and is not annoyed by "whatever," points out that its use is not always negative. It also can be used in place of other, neutral phrases that have fallen out of favor, like "six of one, half dozen of the other," he said.
But the negative connotation might explain why "whatever" was judged more annoying than the ever-popular "you know," which was recently given a public workout by Caroline Kennedy during her flirtation with the New York U.S. Senate seat vacated by Hillary Rodham Clinton. "You know," Adams notes, is a way for speakers to seek assent from others.
Pollsters at the Poughkeepsie, N.Y. college surveyed 938 U.S. adults by telephone Aug. 3 - Aug 6. The margin of error is 3.2 percentage points. The five choices included were chosen by people at the poll discussing what popular words and phrases might be considered especially annoying, said spokeswoman Mary Azzoli.""So, you know, it is what it is, but Americans are totally annoyed by the use of... more

CNN is facing pressure on a number of fronts to drop Lou Dobbs from their roster of on-air talent, a move that would force millions of Americans seeking out news about the conspiracy to spread leprosy throughout America via illegal Mexican immigrants to turn instead to the guy who lives under the bridge by the old tire factory.
Leading the way in this effort are a coalition of organizations united under the "Drop Dobbs" banner, including Media Matters for America, the National Council of La Raza, the National Hispanic Media Coalition, the New Democrat Network, and the Southern Poverty Law Center. Writing for Media Matters' County Fair blog, John V. Santore sums up their beef:
For years, Lou Dobbs has been one of the most dangerous hosts on cable news. He benefits enormously from the legitimacy of the CNN brand, which provides him with an unparalleled platform from which to mainstream the hate speech and racially charged conspiracy theories normally relegated to Fox News and other conservative news outlets. Dobbs calls himself an "advocacy journalist," but he doesn't even live up to that ambiguous standard. Good journalism enhances the discussion of serious topics, but Dobbs helps to undermine and debase that discussion, routinely infusing it with misinformation and fear. And when it comes to issues like immigration, he has more in common with birther Orly Taitz than with Anderson Cooper.CNN is facing pressure on a number of fronts to drop Lou Dobbs from their roster of... more
