But then...

We're hitting the northside Martini establishments. Here's where we're headed:

Blue Martini

Could be a late one! Thank goodness for cabs!

That's driving under the influence

That's driving under the influence of horniness.

Andre Gainey found out the hard way that in the state of New York it's illegal to drive while watching porn.

Police said the 35-year old man from Clifton Park, New York, was watching a adult movie called "Chocolate Foam" on Tuesday night while driving his Mercedes Benz in the town of Schenectady when he was spotted by an officer at a stop light.

Police spokesman Pete Frizoni said detectives pulled Gainey over when they saw the movie playing on screens embedded in the car's headrests. When they confronted him, they saw another screen in the passenger-side visor was facing Gainey, allowing him to watch the movie while driving.

The case is thought to be the first of its kind in New York, said Joe Pichi, a spokesman for the for the state's Department of Motor Vehicles.

"Our biggest problem is illegal cell phone use while driving," Pichi said. "Drivers should be driving."

My friend Shelley and I

My friend Shelley and I went to see "Lost in Translation" last night. It was also the premiere of "Dirty Dancing 2: Havana Nights" at the same theater. Aside from the billion middle school children running around, they had live salsa dancing. Needless to say, it was a zoo.

The movie was very odd. That's not to say that I didn't like it, because I did. It's just not a movie for everyone. The acting was superb. If Murray wins an Oscar, it certainly wouldn't be undeserved (although I think Penn has it in the bag). Coppolla is a very artistic and surreal director, but I don't think she pushes herself too far. You can see aspects similarities in both "The Virgin Suicides" and "Lost in Translation." What I do like though is that the movie is not bound to dialogue--much of the movie has no dialogue or long dramatic pauses, but you can gather so much from the looks on the two actors' faces.

I'm a bit perturbed with my local paper, The Indianapolis Star.

One of the Star's writers gave the movies "The Passion of the Christ" and "Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights" the SAME star rating--3 stars.

Are they serious?

Four men have been fined

Four men have been fined $300 each for removing testicles from a bull statue in the Australian beef capital, Rockhampton.

Police charged the men, all aged in their 20s, with willful damage after they found the testicles in their car.

Were they jealous of the bull's size?

Carl Anderson, the actor and

Carl Anderson, the actor and singer best known for his stage and film portrayal of Judas in the rock opera "Jesus Christ Superstar," has died of leukemia at age 58, his manager said on Wednesday.

The part of Judas in "Jesus Christ Superstar" was originated on Broadway in 1971 by Ben Vereen, but Anderson stepped into the role when Vereen fell ill, and the two performers later took turns playing the role.

I thought Anderson was just phenomenal in the movie. Many people objected to the way in which Judas was portrayed in the show (more as a victim). However, whether you agree with that decision or not (not trying to get in a major religious debate here), he nailed the part. You really began to feel his angst and torment by the end.

Ethan Hawk re: his probable divorce with wife Uma Thurman: "Martin Luther King Jr. suffered from infidelity; so did John F. Kennedy. You're more likely to find great leadership coming from a man who likes to have sex with a lot of women than one who's monogamous."

Call me naive, but I believe a real man can lead and keep his pants zipped.

As you know, I periodically

As you know, I periodically post about new buzzwords that I hear from my hip friends in NYC. Here are some of the latest:

helicopter girl/boyfriend
(n.) A significant other who finds it necessary to hover around his or her mate at all times. ("I'd love to come to girls' night, but my helicopter probably won't let me out of his sight.")

blamestorming
(n.) A meeting whose sole purpose is to discuss why a deadline was missed or a project failed and who was responsible.

teenile
(adj.) Used to describe someone who is way too old for what he or she is wearing; see also senile. ("That 45-year-old woman in those low-cut jeans? Is she crazy or just teenile?")

mouse potato
(n.) The wired generation's answer to the couch potato.

karat dangler
(n.) A woman who finds it of utmost importance to flaunt her engagement/wedding ring at all times. ("Who does that karat dangler think she's impressing? Like I've never seen a rock before.")

resigoo:
(n.) The residual stuff stuck to you after a bikini wax.

So my aunt recommended this

So my aunt recommended this store to me the other day. She said, "It has tons of fun clothing, for your age, Lawren." Ok, great. I checked it out today.

I walked in--very cute stuff. I went to the first rack and picked up a jacket I just loved. $648. Ok. So I just grabbed one of the few things totally out of my range, right?

Wrong.

Without boring you with everything I took off the rack, let's just say that the cheapest thing in the whole place was a $48 candle.

Maybe in about 10 years I can afford a place like that. Sheesh. Maybe my aunt forgot to look at the price tags when she was in there.

...is still "A," but now it stands for ALCOHOL.

Repeat offenders of Illinois' drinking and driving laws could soon be given a "scarlet letter" - a brightly colored license plate to point out their criminal history to police and other drivers.

The measure is one of several bills the Legislature will consider that would toughen the state's drunken driving laws. Among other proposals: Reducing the state's blood alcohol limit from 0.08 percent to 0.06 percent, making it the lowest in the country.

Watch out! They are cracking down in IL!

Tennis star Anna Kournikova turned heads when she walked the red carpet with actor Mickey Rourke to celebrate Light nightclub's second anniversary at the Bellagio resort.

Publicists swore the two were just friends.

Wasn't he the dude in "9 1/2 Weeks?" Wonder how they "met."

I have some creeping crud

I have some creeping crud sickness. Had a sore throat yesterday. Today I feel like my head isn't attached to my body.

I went to bed at 9:30 last night (hadn't done that in YEARS), and when my alarm went off this morning at 6, I felt like I had just gone to bed.

Hope it passes soon...
