I Went Blond, Among Other Things

And yes, I chose to spell it “blond” over “blonde.” Anyway, yeah, hi, it’s been over a year since I last posted. I assure you I have been writing, just not here. Would you like to know what I’ve been up to? In no particular order — -As mentioned above, I went blond. I was reluctant to do it, because being brunette felt like an … Continue reading I Went Blond, Among Other Things

The Fun in Funfetti

Yesterday I whipped up some Funfetti cupcakes for a friend’s gathering (but ended up coming home with half of them… danger zone!). Which, compared to last weekend’s pudding cookie sweatshop (I’ll write about that soon), was a very easy and relaxing task. Lately if I am performing time-consuming or tedious tasks alone in my kitchen (cooking projects, washing dishes), I will listen to WTF with … Continue reading The Fun in Funfetti

Snack With Caution: BEN & JERRY’S LATE NIGHT SNACK

Typically I am pretty good with my portions. If you give me a big chocolate bar, I will eat it in small chunks over a series of days. If I bake a spice cake, I will eat it in small pieces, and it will take me at least a week to finish. (I actually did that, but I didn’t blog it yet.) (WHY I did … Continue reading Snack With Caution: BEN & JERRY’S LATE NIGHT SNACK

THE VAMPIRE DIARIES Returns Tonight!

Appropriately enough, the Season 2 premiere is called “The Return.” It’s on tonight at 8pm, on the CW. I am very excited to watch it. Coincidentally (or not?), “True Blood” has its finale on Sunday. Vampire shows don’t like to overlap, I guess. They’re lone wolves. What does one snack on while watching a vampire show? I’m not actually going to eat this, because it’s … Continue reading THE VAMPIRE DIARIES Returns Tonight!

Oh Brother: BIG BROTHER’s Wizard of Oz Moment

So I remembered to check out “Big Brother” last night. Well… I remembered about 20 minutes after it started, but I don’t think I missed much. (Just the intros… sigh.) I got there in time for the challenge, which involved the contestants flinging themselves onto giant fake hot dogs and riding them through the air. Yes. And sadly, I cannot find a picture of this … Continue reading Oh Brother: BIG BROTHER’s Wizard of Oz Moment

Vampire Weekend

I gotta, say, you guys… I saw “Eclipse” last night, and I’m just not feeling the Twilight vampires anymore. I’m about to watch the Founder’s Day episode of “The Vampire Diaries,” just to cleanse my palate. Looking forward to hearing one of my favorite Damon lines from Season 1: “I’m a vampire. What’s your excuse?” (Yes, I have a lot of lines from Season 1 … Continue reading Vampire Weekend

Tasty TV Morsel: THE AMAZING RACE Host Phil Keoghan (Also, Last Season’s Mel & Mike)

In case you’ve never watched the Emmys, “The Amazing Race” always wins. Yet I don’t know many people who actually watch this show. But everybody SHOULD watch “The Amazing Race,” because it is… I mean, they race around the world. That is cool. Last season I started watching, thanks to Mike & Mel White. Mike White is one of my favorite actor/screenwriters (SCHOOL OF ROCK), … Continue reading Tasty TV Morsel: THE AMAZING RACE Host Phil Keoghan (Also, Last Season’s Mel & Mike)

TOP CHEF Started Without Me/Fabio Viviani is a Tasty TV Morsel

Despite the constant commercials on Bravo, somehow I didn’t realize that the new season of “Top Chef” was premiering last night. “Top Chef” is one of those shows that I don’t watch every season, and usually don’t watch from the beginning of a season. Last time around I hopped on the bandwagon about halfway through, and stayed because I LOVED Fabio. Who can forget his … Continue reading TOP CHEF Started Without Me/Fabio Viviani is a Tasty TV Morsel

Now We Know They Can Dance: SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE’s Final 4

Looks like my tasty TV morsels are AMERICA’S choice as well. (This is quite a surprise because me and AMERICA don’t generally see eye-to-eye.) How is everybody feeling about the Final 4? How exciting was it for Evan when he realized that he beat Ade to get into the Final 4? (RIP Ade, I loved you too.) (He’s not really dead!) It was like David … Continue reading Now We Know They Can Dance: SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE’s Final 4

Tasty TV Morsel: Regina Spektor on THE TONIGHT SHOW WITH CONAN O’BRIEN

In case you haven’t heard, living in LA involves a lot of commuting. Everybody has different ways of coping with the driving. I tend to listen to music or “This American Life” podcasts. I also like to talk on the phone. (Don’t worry, those of you who are versed in California driving laws– I have a Bluetooth hands-free thingamagig.) Lately, I spend most of my … Continue reading Tasty TV Morsel: Regina Spektor on THE TONIGHT SHOW WITH CONAN O’BRIEN
