Lamborghini Limo

I have to admit, I want to see this car in person- some company in LA took a Lamborghini, cut it in half and turned it into a Limo!

I am not saying it's worth the $400/hour (which makes it LA's most expensive limo) and you probably lose most of the point of a Lambo when you cut it and stretch it because let's face it, you simply cannot go 120 mph in a limo (I don't think) but still, it is a cool idea... However, it gains many many points for having a jacuzzi in it! I promise- on the website it says:
Amenities include:
*Leather Wrap around seating
*Limo lighting
*Convertible Top
*Dynamic AM-FM CD Sound System
*Fiery Fiber Optics
*Mini Bar
This is the company's site:

If anyone orders it, even for an hour, please call me- I want a picture!

Britney Mania!!!

You can own some of the clothing Britney wore during the filming of her guest spot on 'How I Met Your Mother' which aired last night on CBS (read the post below for details)

You can bid on the dresses and shirts she wore here:

I like the Nanette Lapore dress

and the Juicy Couture dress

Happy shopping!

How I Met Your Mother

I cannot handle it! Obviously it was the best worst kept secret that Britney Spears was guest starring on this week's episode... what they didn't tell us was that Sarah Chalke (formerly of Scrubs) was also going to be in the episode!

First of all, it was a great episode! I still love this show and look forward to many many new episodes...
Now, Britney was okay, I mean the acting was very bad but I don't care- I am so glad she was part of a project and hope this is one step on her road to getting back on top.
Sarah Chalke was great- and now we have a clue that she might have been the girl at the St. Patrick's party on last week episode where Ted starts the show by saying 'Kids, your mom was at that party only I didn't know it at the time."
Course, Bob Saget might just be toying with my emotions... don't read too deeply into it.

The Big Bang Theory -- DJ Qualls!!!

I am so glad there are new shows on tv- but I was most pleasantly surprised tonight when I watched the latest episode of 'The Big Bang Theory' and saw that DJ Qualls made an appearance!

He is one of my favorite actors- just his entire demeanor and the roles he has played, he makes me laugh every single time and I am always happy when he pops up unexpectedly in a movie or (and I just found this out tonight) WE HAVE THE SAME BIRTHDAY!!! (proof-

High Speed Sports Car vs Fighter Jet -- and the winner is...
I think there is something inherent in all men, at one time or another, to want to drive an incredibly high performance sports car. I plead guilty to that desire, wondering what it would be like to get behind the wheel of a car I will never find on, and take it for a couple of laps around the track at full speed.I've also had dreams about being a fighter pilot; strapping into the cockpit of a high performance jet, racing down the runway with full afterburners, pulling back on the stick, pulling 5 Gs as I race up to 50,000 feet in a matter of seconds.The video below combines both of those fantasies.The producers of Top Gear, a British automotive show, arranged a drag race between one of the most powerful sports cars in the world, the Bugatti Veyron, (cost, about $1.5 million each) and the Eurofighter Typhoon, an air-superiority fighter currently flying for the British, Austrian, German, Italian, and Spanish air forces.The Bugatti can go from 0-190 mph in 18 seconds. The Typhoon's two engines, each with 20,000 pounds of thrust, can easily take it to an altitude of 65,000 feet at 1,500 mph. It can go from brakes-off on the runway to 35,000 feet in two-and-a-half minutes!The two-mile race took place at RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire. The Bugatti and the Typhoon would start from the same place on the runway. At the start the Bugatti would race down the runway for one mile, turn around as quickly as possible, and go back to the starting line as fast as it could. (And in a Bugatti, that is FAST!) The Typhoon would take off, go straight up for one mile, turn over and come back down the same mile, crossing the finish line at a low altitude.Who will win? Watch the video and see. Enjoy!

The Bachelor

Last week was the season premier episode of the new bachelor- Matt Grant.
He started with 25 women, and made a few random choices, but got rid of 10 women making it 15 women left- and now it's on!

The first date box arrives, and the girls are going to a fashion show with Matt (poor guy- an 8 woman date sounds great in theory- but in application- MEOW!)
First surprise- the women are the ones putting on the show.
Matt has to give a rose on the date...
The women are all teased and combed and walk down the runway, some looking better than others...
Holly moon walked down the catwalk!!!
Amanda one upped her bu taking off her shirt- no worries though, she had a gold lame bikini top on underneath...
Matt then took the girls to a penthouse to party it up, and allow him to spend one on one time with each girl.
Marshanna- seriously, I don't like this girl- her attitude, the way she talks to everyone else... she even kind of corners Matt on inter-racial dating and 'where he stands on it' which is so dumb- obviously he's okay with it- HE KEPT YOU!
Michelle P. from Syracuse (the Administrative Assistant) pulled Matt aside and SANG to him- not well either. Why do these women keep coming on the show and singing? They always get dropped for their efforts!
Ashlee (the Jewel doppelganger) go the first kiss- she pushed hard for it too!
... and earned the date rose for her efforts! She was smug about it with all the other girls too- and she showed it off to everyone at the house too! The girls called her out on the first kiss too... drama begins!

Second date box arrives- and it's a Vegas date! Sounds like so much fun!!!
They go to Paris (pretty casino) and Shayne comments to the camera that even though she's been to Vegas 'like a million times before; she is glad to be here with Matt... DIVA!
Each girl gets 1000 in chips and the deal is whoever has the most money at the end of the game gets a one on one date with Matt. (The smart girl would just keep her money in her pocket and have a fun time!)
Shayne bet everything on one hand, whereas Robin pulled Matt aside and told him she wouldn't gamble on him and just watched. Shayne lost it all on one hand...
Kelly had $2100 in chips so she won the date...
She got to eat alone with Matt and she's kinda drunk and kinda blabbering on... and gets kinda loud as the night progresses.
Shayne starts to short circuit on the whole concept of the other girls fighting for the same guy- and she picks a fight with Matt about it, which is dumb on her part... Matt admits to the camera that she is so attractive 'probably more than his level' but that her drama is a little much for him, and a bit of a turn off... bye bye Shayne?

Matt takes them up to the Napoleon Suite, and Shayne keeps complaining to the camera about how tough it is... Matt takes Chelsea aside and she obviously says a lot of things that Matt vibes with (she is edging higher up on my favorite list).

Robin is sitting on Matt's lap, playing the piano, and the camera catches Matt and Shayne eyeing each other (it's weird).
Erin S (the hot dog vendor from Venice) is actually also a pretty cool girl...

Matt gives Chelsea the rose (yay) and they get alone time and meander off alone to talk and get to know each other a little better (that means kissing in Bachelor land).... after they leave, Shayne tells the camera she isn't having any fun, she's used to getting tons of roses and maybe this isn't for her, and she goes to the bathroom and cries to another blond (can't remember which) but in the end decides she will stay because she feels something for Matt...

Robin gets busted by the other girls for kissing Matt... Marshanna makes a funny comment about how she has great lips that are waiting for kissing...and then on her one on one time with Matt they dance (no music) and he doesn't kiss her because he sees the other girls watching from the window.

Dum Dum Dum
Rose Ceremony night...Enough singing already! A blond corners him and starts busting out the opera- 'Summertime, and the living is easy...' (NOT AN OPERA SONG!)

Amanda, my favorite so far, gets the hiccups every time she gets nervous, and is worried she'll have the hiccups in front of Matt. She pulls him onto the floor and gets him to do a Soulja Boy dance!!!

Shayne (wearing a huge white flower headband thing on her head) tells Matt she is sorry about their tiff last night and that she is okay now- and he admits that he might have given her a harder time because of her acting background and who her family is... and they agree that they are there to find love and she is there for him and nothing else...

15 women down to 12...

Chelsea and Ashlee are safe
the other 10 are:



Erin S.

Amanda (who hiccups!)

Kelly (WHY?)



Marshanna (WHY again?!?)


Shayne (who totally thought she was out!)
Yes! The bad singers are gone... ladies! Don't sing!!! You will always get sent home!!!

Dancing Walrus- Mickael Jackson Style!

I had to post this after I saw it- seriously, it put a smile on my face and lasted almost the whole day...

How I Met Your Mother (New Episode!)

FINALLY, it's back on the air with new shows!
I have missed Ted and Barney so so much!

This weeks episode was ok, although considering how long they had to write it I guess I expected a lot more- however big big news- Britney Spears will be on the show next week! I can't wait!

Barney and Ted have a night of debauchery on St, Patrick's Day and Marshall, Lily and Robin realize that Marshall and Lily's new apartment is crooked... Oh, and Vanessa Minnillo guest starred this week (Sorry, it was forgettable)

WELCOME BACK TED!!! You have been missed!

The Bachelor (Season Premier!!!)

I am so psyched for this season's bachelor Matt Grant- they are shaking things up by bringing in a British guy this time, I guess hoping that women will tune in just to hear him talk?

Anyway, I am living blogging it so stay tuned...You can read about him and check out the show:

Plus, every week you can pick your favorites and there are prizes for the players who choose correctly...register and play here:

Here goes...
Starting out kinda goofy
"Once upon a time there was a bachelor looking for his wife, and he had to travel halfway around the world to find her..."
He's kind of... nerdy (those are my father-in-law's words! I swear!!!)
I feel like he's really really playing up being a British import, but probably is not that big a deal in England... I get the sense if he was a Manhattan guy, he'd be that guy who brags about being a broker at Bear Sterns or something.... you get my point!

Great ad placement Maserati...
(I actually am a fan of the new Quattroporte FYI)

So, 25 beautiful women- remains to be seen (Sometimes they come up with some real 'winners')

Kinda sucks that it's raining so hard as he pulls up- how much would it suck if one of the women slipped coming out of the limo? (Suck for her, entertaining for us though)

Hah! Called it- he's a banker!!!
I knew it- I could just tell... he cannot possibly be whining about how hard it is to meet women in London? That is so offensive! He'll never be welcome home again, the way he is bashing his own ladies...

From the promos for the rest of this episode, I feel as though the bar was set way low this season. They seem like a much less classier bunch somehow, can't figure out what it is yet.

25 Girls:

Ooh, I like the first one- Amanda R.- pretty legs and like the blue dress. Really classy, pretty smile!

Amy, did a little twirl as she walked up, seems like a sorority girl

Devon- wow- pretty, but seems a little devious...

Kristine- eh, no real first impression

Chelsea- not so cute

Erin H.- hate that she told him she was wearing a ring until he replaced it with one from him

Kelly- another eh, no real impression yet

Rebecca- looks like someones mom got lost on the way to soccer practice (why is she here?)

Denise- wow, a Jay Leno chin, but love the color of her dress

Erin S.- looks like a porn star, seriously, not her clothes even, just the way she is...

Robin- pretty-ish, stunning dress, but I think she might be devious

Ashlee- looks like she is going out clubbing (love the dress, but not dressy enough) and seems VERY sorority - looks like Jewel too

Alyssa- needs to fix her hair

Michelle P.- eh, like the dress color, she seems like a suck up

Shayne- very sultry entrance, she is pretty and OBVIOUSLY from California (you can just tell)

Marshanna- instant hate on first sight

Amanda P.- not the prettiest but a sweetheart, great personality with a fun dress

Tamara- yuck, she's the snobby waspy blah

Holly- really cutesy, like her dress and the color a lot, seems very genuine

Tiffany-Looks old and bossy

Carri- pretty dress, she seems cornfed sweet

Stacey- wow, way too much first impression, she's wearing blue sparkly long flowy swishy...

Lesley- I like her a lot, pretty with an easy grace and nice dress

Michele R.- hmm, something weird about her face, but she could be cute

Noelle- why is she looking off, even though she seems pretty? Can't figure it out yet

So, I have a few favorites, and I'll keep track of them until he gets rid of a bunch today and then list who I think will make it each week.

Matt joins the party- and the grilling begins. I think Ashlee is on the show to promote her career. They all keep going on and on about his accent... and he does the funniest American imitation. I like Amanda R.- the first girl out of the limo, a lot.
Chelsea comes on a bit strong, still dislike her. She challenges him to an arm wrestling contest. He is trying to let her win, without giving in, and then he let's her have the win.
Carri is sweet, and Denise totally turned it political and she's a huge Bush fan and worked for Carl Rove (why the heck is she admitting this stuff?) But Carri beats her- by biting a piece out of a can and handing it to him!
Rebecca (who I thought was uptight) totally breaks it out and starts dirty dancing!
Tiffany, hate! Hate so much.
Marshanna too- needs to go home tonight! "I am a beauty queen, I am Miss Earth New York..." Yuck.
Ashlee, my Jewel lookalike, wrote him a song- that she performs with a guitar for him! Dumb as a rock, can play guitar, thinks she's as good as Alanis- except she's totally not.
Amanda R. has hiccups- chronic ones! But I really like her.
Michelle P. brought the clarinet and puts it together in front of him... and actually says "the reed, it has to be wet in order to vibrate" out loud. Then makes him listen as she plays a slow annoying song. Send her home!
(When did this show turn into the talent part of a beauty pageant? We don't care what you can do- just be sweet, pretty and play nice with the other girls!)
Still really like Shayne, although she is an actress, and her dad is LORENZO LAMAS but she says it has nothing to do with this...
Stacy is nuts- she has a tramp stamp tatoo and slithers up to Matt and slides her white thing into his pocket- except his suit doesn't have one so she stuffs it in his pants! Trashy!
They are all vying for the first impression rose (Shayne I predict).
I was wrong but it's ok- Amanda!!! The one I liked too!!!!
Way to go!
So the rose ceremony... here are the first finalists:
Amanda R. (first impression rose)
Michelle P.
Erin S.
Erin H.

Fit Flops- shoes that give you a workout

Ok, sounds impossible, I know.

I have no idea if these shoes actually work or if you BELIEVE they are working or (and I believe the most probable explanation) you believe they should work so therefore you WALK A LOT MORE TO SEE IF THEY DO!!!

Whatever the reality is, I have a pair from last August and now they came out with a great new bronze color that I would love to have except I felt foolish spending the money on them the first time around so... if anyone else has them let me know what you think!

You can buy them here...

And this is the website that claims to explain how they work...
