Is there nothing sacred and safe from the teen pop crapnomenon? Click here to see what I'm ranting about.

Next thing you know they'll be tapping in to the reality show craze. "Next, on Virgin or Vixen?--will Susie give in to Satan?"

It's not always cool to do the right thing.

There's nothing more beautiful than

There's nothing more beautiful than fall in Indiana. It's my favorite season--by far. This weekend marks the end of summer, and while it was a blast, I'm pumped for fall. Today there isn't a cloud in the sky, and it's a brisk 61 degrees right now (supposed to warm up to 70).

Football weather is upon us, and I'm sorry for all you SEC fans out there, but football weather does NOT include sweating to death in a dress! It's blue jeans and a sweater (preferably red for IU or black for DePauw). And while football games are fun, fall gets us one step closer to the season of the real sport.

I've never seen the leaves change with a more vibrant array of color than in Indiana (more in southern Indiana). It really is breathtaking. Driving with the sunroof down the curvy roads of Brown County in fall just lifts the spirit.

And of course, who could not love pumpkins? I'm a big fan of raking leaves and carving pumpkins! And if you haven't had roasted pumpkin seeds, you really are missing out.

And hayrides! Hayrides are great. Sit next to the boy you've had a crush on and drink your warm apple cider and look at stars. It just doesn't get any better!

Sorry to bring you on that little Robert Frost moment, but I needed a diversion from my trusts and estates reading.

I'm all for trying the newest, chicist, and the hippest. But this, is too much even for me!

I'll stick to my grande non-fat vanilla latte, thank you.

This is why I still don't like to fly.

I like the line that says the psycho was "subdued by passengers." How PC. I'm betting they beat the living daylights out of him. That's what I would do.

Ok, PLEASE tell me someone

Ok, PLEASE tell me someone out there has seen the movie Sideout. I'm actually embarrassed to be mentioning that I LOVE IT! It has an awful cast (Courtney Thorne-Smith, C. Thomas Howell, that scruffy guy from Thirtysomething, and that man who played the dead guy in Weekend at Bernie's) and a terrible script (actual line: "I'll see you in the sand").

So, you may be asking yourselves what I could possibly like about it. Well, it's about a future law student who decides to play pro-beach volleyball instead. I started playing volleyball right about the time when the move came out (1990), and I was a player for the next 7 years. Now, I'm just a fan. It also had cameos by some of my favorite male pro-beach players. Plus, the movie's soundtrack has the song "Bushfire" by the B-52's in it--which of course, ROCKS.

I hadn't seen the movie in years and I sat down with my Stouffer's Skillet Sensation garlic chicken tonight (yeah, it wasn't much of a cooking night), and it was on one of my random movie channels!!

WHOO HOO! Guilty pleasures are cool.

Check out the 2-star review, here.

In Athens, Georgia, a jury

In Athens, Georgia, a jury awarded $150,000 to a woman who was left mostly bald after a visit to a salon. Dave, stay AWAY from this place!

This may become a new theory of liability under the law: negligent infliction of emotional disTRESS.

HAHAHAHA! I kill me.

Check out these famous Mensa members. (To be a member, your IQ must be in the top 2% of the population).

Some of them, are actually Hollywood celebrities. Guess it goes to show, you CAN be a celebrity and have a brain.

And I'm sure no one is surprised to see one member of the list--none other than Stormin' Norman!

I don't dispute that this

I don't dispute that this article raises some valid concerns about child obesity and what contributes to it. However, I remember a time when I ate Funyons and a Nutty Bar every day for lunch (sorry Mom, I know you thought I was buying a nice turkey sandwich and an apple with that lunch money) and I was a thin kid. Now, I fully understand that my metabolism was QUITE different then, but I think I stayed thin mostly because my parents got me off my ass and into activities. I had volleyball practices to go to, voice lessons, musical rehearsals, student council meetings, academic team meetings (yeah, I was a minor nerd), etc.

Get these kids off the couches and you won't have to worry so much about what they eat! Sports=good. Video games=bad.

Well, it seems that I've

Well, it seems that I've reached the 2,000 mark. As of right now there have been 2,022 hits to my blog and it has been in existence for 16 days. That's about 125 hits a day.

For all you "seasoned" bloggers, you're probably thinking, "Oh, that's cute. I get a million hits a day."

But, what should I make of my numbers? Which category do I fall in?
1) Wow. That's great. Keep on truckin' lil camper. (suggestions would be welcomed)
2) That's ok. You could do some things to improve like...???? (suggestions would be welcomed).
3) You're a loser. No one gives a shit what you're talking about. (Go to hell).

Break it to me, folks. I can handle it.

Welcome to the Martinis, Persistence,

Welcome to the Martinis, Persistence, and a Smile beauty tip of the week. It will be weekly (hence the name)--assuming I remember.

My best friend's dad is a dermatologist and has always told me that the best facial cleanser is Cetaphil. So, I've been using it for as long as I can remember. It's light, fragrance free, doesn't lather up and burn your eyes, and ALWAYS gets my eye makeup off.

Costsaver tip: Both Wal-Mart and Osco make their own brand versions of Cetaphil. These brands have the EXACT same ingredients, work exactly the same, and cost $2 less per bottle. I have used them both and like them both. So, you can use the best and save some $$!!

Presidential Candidate General Wesley Clark

Presidential Candidate General Wesley Clark is going to speak at my alma mater, DePauw University in September.

And to think, when I was there I lobbied before the Board of Trustees that we had too many left-wing speakers. Doesn't appear I did much good.

UPDATE: Did anyone hear Clark this morning on the Today show? I've never heard a more uncommitted man in my life! He might be at the debate. When asked about gays in the military, he responded by saying that it might be time for military to re-look at the matter. He's learning fast--never, ever take an absolute stand.

I think every current and future candidate both democrat and republican has visions of "No New Taxes" dancing in their heads.

R Kelly is truly dillusional.

R Kelly is truly dillusional. He said he is misunderstood and judged, UNFAIRLY mind you, because of his recent kiddie porn incident. Here's a quarter R, call someone who cares. Woody Allen maybe?

Secondly, he THEN compares his unfair judgment to--brace yourselves--the unfair treatment of Osama Bin Laden. "Bin Laden is the only one who knows what I'm going through." You're making a real strong case for yourself there, R. Compare yourself to a psychotic, cowardly killer. Nice work.

Read about it here.

(Thanks to Bogs for the title)

Sung to the tune of "Bye, Bye Love"

Bye, bye J-Lo
Ben was a little slow
But his friends were "in the know"
And you just had to go

Bye, bye Jen
You'll exploit many more men
'Though your ass is a ten
You're loveless in the Bronx again

Make sure you tune in

Make sure you tune in to Sex and the City's pseudo-finale tonight. It's the last episode until January. Tonight's episode could be the first introduction to Carrie's new love interest--Mikhail Baryshnikov.

Wonder if she'll be able to keep up with his fancy footwork in her Manolo's.
