California, Here We Come...

It's not Christmas, but it sure feels like it to me.
After months of waiting and boredom, everyone's favorite (or least my own personal favorite) guilty pleasure The O.C. is finally making it's triumphant return to fall tv tonight!

I know, I know, it's a little chessy. But I still love it.

It has been a long summer with Cohen, Ryan and, well, Summer. I can't wait to see how they handle Marissa's death. Or Cohen and Summer's move to the East coast. Or "Chrismukua"....

Here's hoping season 4 is the best ever!

Royal Flush

Has everyone seen 'Marie Antoinette' yet?
If not, shame on you.

It is amazing- hands down the most decadent and gorgeous film I've ever seeen. The only film I can think of that even comes close--in terms of scale and grandeur- is 'Gone With The Wind' (that's right I said it).

Still not convinced?
Check out this glowing review

Alabama Liberal?

Alabama never lets us down with their professional Gubernatorial candidates. This year Loretta Nall takes the banana pudding as the write-in candidate for the Libertarian Party. In need of a campaign summary? Keep reading...

Loretta's 2006 slogan: Vote Nall Y'all ... It's Just Common Sense
Her campaign t-shirts boast a photo of her cleavage and state, "Vote for more of these boobs, and less of these boobs!" (With opponents' photos underneath.)
Other collateral material consists of coffee cups, mousepads, and grilling aprons complete with her slogan and photo.
Campaigning includes "Vote for me on MySpace", "Ex-Felon Voter Registration" events, and "The Great Boobie Flap of the 2006 Alabama Gubernatorial Election."

Like I said, Alabama always keeps it interesting. For the full story from New York Daily News, click here. To visit her website, click here.

Ugly Betty

I have found a warm spot in my heart for ABC's new sitcom, Ugly Betty. Everything is skin deep in the world of fashion publishing-everything but Betty Suarez. (played by America Ferrera) Maybe she won my heart because I can relate to her entry-level publishing job, or maybe it's her canny way of figuring out exactly what she needs to do to move to where she wants to be that inspires me. At any rate, she's a new favorite of mine. The show airs Thursdays on ABC- 7 p.m.

Another reason to watch: Eric Mabius plays Daniel Meade, Editor-in-Chief. Simply adorable.

"Don't Marry Career Women"

I stumbled across this article titled "Don't Marry Career Women." It was apparently posted on earlier in August this year, but seems it was promptly pulled off the internet. Hmm...I wonder why? Could it be because their inbox was filled with comments from offended women?

The article states how a woman's career can negatively influence a marriage and cause divorce, specifically stating, "Women's work hours consistently increase divorce, whereas increases in men's work hours often have no statistical effect." Other comments in the article (though not stated directly regarding women, but fully implied) were: "The other reason a career can hurt a marriage will be obvious to anyone who has seen their mate run off with a co-worker: When your spouse works outside the home, chances increase they'll meet someone they like more than you." and "Additionally, individuals who earn more than $30,000 a year are more likely to cheat."

For the full article, click here. Ambitious women may be harder to please in some cases, therefore men should buck up. Oh it's okay for a woman to try to keep a driven, ambitious man happy. In fact, traditionally, the general concensus was that it was her JOB to keep a man happy. You know, dinner on the table at 5, kids all shiny and clean for Daddy, the whole nine yards. Obviously, we are not in the 1950s anymore. Men, if you continue to expect ballsy women to keep up with you, start keeping up with us. This article was obviously written by a man that couldn't handle or compete with a career-oriented woman.

Steamy Slater-Saved by the Bell star gets to play the hottie again...

While you may be queasy from Screech's sex tape, former Saved by the Bell star, Mario Lopez, is making some spicy appearences on tv. He recently starred on Nip Tuck as a plastic surgeon in a steamy shower scene. If you were lucky enough to catch it, all your middle school dreams of seeing Slater naked came true. Just one more reason to get Ti-vo.

The Game of Love...

Some people say the game of love is just too hard to play and not worth the drama that typically comes with it. I've had experience with both. I used to be in a relationship where it was total guesswork all the time. While I cared about the guy a lot, it was constantly a game. (It didn't work out-maybe that's why.) But I've had experience with relationships where there's no guesswork at all, and I've found I tend to get a little bored. I like to play the game of love. While I don't necessarily have to have a bad boy, I've come to the conclusion that I like a guy to keep me on my toes. Just another self-revelation as I date longer and learn more about my personal dating style.

How much is too much?

So my friend found a new guy at a bar Friday night.

They hung out, made out (I think) and she ended up giving him her number. So far, so good... right?

Fast forward two days-- the guy has called her like ten times, asked her out four times and made at least one real date with her.

She seems to think he's just being nice. I think he might be over doing it and maybe she should get out while she can.

What do you guys think?
Is there such a thing as too much of a good thing?
