Final recap of this season's Top Model.

It was a show down between the can do no wrongness of Krista vs. annoying gigantic eyebrows of Raina. Obligatory Cover Girl commercial and photo shoot. Because that's who pays the bills, y'all!

For the first time in the history of Top Model, they did an actual run way walk off for a REAL designer... Anna Sui! I love her!!!

And predictably, Krista won.

See you bitches in the fall!

Top Chef restarts in a few weeks. Watch this space.

Yr Standing on my Neck

Hurray Hurray! Daria the complete series is now available on DVD. I watched the show faithfully right up until the final season. When I was in college, it was part of Monday night ritual to eat crap and watch Daria. I would have eaten crap anyway but Daria legitimised it.

And when Daria betrayed her best friend, Jane, I felt like I was watching television history.

And boy, that show has not lost it's punch. I finally was able to see the last episode ever, "Boxing Daria" and I cried. Daria finally confronts her inner demons, she's a brain, the other kids make fun of her and she finds solace in books. Sound familiar?

Then it got me thinking, perhaps I have not changed much. At least Daria had a Jane.

Don't mind me, just feeling misunderstood.

If yr a fan of Mr. Dave's blog, then you've read his post on ordering vast amounts of ramen from all over Asia from For 20 bucks plus 3 clams for shipping, we ended up w/ 30 some odd flavours of ramen. As seen above, Sexybeast had spicy beef complete which he added extra sriracha. I had garlic onion. Nom nom nom.
A version of pasta fagioli. I'm trying to fiber up my diet hence the spinach.
I really out did myself w/ this bad boy! Thai beef lettuce wraps. Cilantro, mint and ginger are such clean, crisp flavours and work so yummy together. We had it twice last week. I recommend using Boston bibb lettuce leaves. Otherwise, you'll end up w/ Thai beef in yr hand. Sadly, I couldn't think of a really good side to pair it w/. Anybody have any ideas for next time?

No Fat Chicks

We are heading into the home stretch of crowning this season's loser.

So the chicks were flying across the other side of New Zealand for some reason. Which led right into the challenge. Woo hoo! The hamsters had to use the aisle in the airplane as a run way. And Angelea was a total freaking dumb ass and only brought one heel. Who does that?! And the winner was Krista. Yawn....

For the photo shoot, the chicks had to be "pretty/ugly" and push through the over top exaggerated make up and wardrobe. And shock and horror, 2 hamsters were sent home. Krista was called first. Again I say yawn and Angelea (thank God!) and her Adam's apple were sent a-packing along w/ Alexandra. Oy, Alex is so pretty! It makes no sense.

Final 2!

The Wrongs of Spring

UGH! Blogger needs a hard bitch slap! Like the kind when you put a little baby powder in yr hand before you smack a ho. ARGH!

We had our annual Bacchus celebration w/ our gang of miscreants and ne'er do-wells this past weekend. And unfortunately because of the stupid blogger head, I am not able to upload the lighting of the ceremonial torch.

But there was drinking and eating and much frivolity on the 1st night.

And on the second day there was laziness and Daria watching and stromboli and lamb shank.

After blogger stops being an asshole, I will upload pictures of the blessed event.

Kitty Kat

2) Do you prefer listening to string instruments, woodwinds, brass, or percussion? Woodwind, love me some oboe or as I call it The Ol' Licorice Stick

3) Which is worse: being too hot or being too cold? Too hot!!! It's much easier to keep warm than cool.

4) Show and Tell. What comes to mind first when you see this picture? Or, tell a story if it reminds you of one. "Chips Ahoy!"

Green Eyed

I hate my jealous side. It lurks and lingers and will never ever go away. And it makes me loathe myself even more.

I'm still looking for happiness in my job. I had a shit job working a hospital for 7 years doing mindless monkey work. And now I'm in a position where I have to shoulder so much responsibility, I think I'm going to fall to pieces from the pressure.

This weekend I was having a conversation w/ a friend type person. She recently quit her stressful bullshit job, for #1 to spend more time w/ her 1 y/o daughter and for #2 the company was a disaster, to go work for fellow blogger Jackie, Low stress, Jackie is a cool chick, and there's other little ones to hang w/ the baby.

That oh so familiar GRR ARG feeling whooshed over me. I wish I had a cool idea or had a great opportunity to get involved w/. Why not me? Why is it always going to be against the world?

So, I'm going to stop being such an ass. I'm throwing myself back into writing.

One Ring to Bind them All

What's that rustling noise? Ahhhhh, the sound of Top Model recap!

And Angelea continues to be an asshat. She's so manish and unattractive. I bet she smells like bitch. Jessica nearly set their new digs on fire. Apparently, as a mother, she feels it unnecessary to learn about kitchen safety.

As the chicks are in New Zealand *pine pine pine*, of course they had to visit the set of "The Lord of the Rings". Really? That's the best they could do? For the challenge, they made the chicks pose in the tiny teeny hobbit holes. Tyra(nt) Banks' idea of a juxtaposition I suppose. Best hobbit holer was Krista's old ass. Seriously, isn't 24 a little old to break into modeling game?

For the photo shoot, Tryant was the photographer for the week. She had the chicks posing in the shadows. Winning photo went to Krista again. Meh. She'll probably win. And packing it up was Jessica for being too catalogue.

Season finale next week!

Yr a Loon, Yr a Nut, Yr Crazy in the Coconut

I made a collage today in a restorative therapy conference. Working in the DV field I was itching to for some place to release my inner bitch and confront why I've been so unhappy at work.

Boy, am I fucked up! I inadvertently chose words in phrases in bright red that said things like "Irritable", "BIG Girl in a Skinny World", Freak-Out", and other disparaging comments. And for some reason in the corner I have a picture of a couple from the 19th century that look happy and in love.

You figure it out.

Cut the Sheep Dip

Buckle up, bitches, Top Model recap time!

And the hamsters are in New Zealand! I wanna go so bad!! Someday......

After being greeting my Maoris (dang those guys are hot!), the chicks were informed that they had to go on "go-see's". Ha! Can you imagine being on a plane for 22 hours w/ funk mouth and greasy hair & being told you had to go look beautiful for a bunch of designers? And Angelea, whom I hate anyway and think she's secretly a dude, had the most jacked up looking hair ever and still won the freakin' challenge!! Huh?

For the photo shoot, the hamsters had to pose w/ sheep on the hill side. Can you image the smell and the poo? But sheeps are soft, sooooo, I guess I'm a bit conflicted about the thing. And winning photo went to Krista again. Meh. And getting the boot was Alasia for being a scattered mess.

Baa baa for now

Random Babbling

I had a really good diner breakfast this weekend. Sadly, the service totally sucked monkey balls. I get it, Sunday morning after the churchy crowd gets out they're starving for eggs and pancakes. Please, do not make that yr excuse and yell at yr customers. Don't get pissy w/ me when you've realize you've forgotten to put our drink orders in. GRRR!

When I die, I don't want a funeral. I'm going to be flambeed, ashes scattered in the Bay of Acapulco while "Anywhere I Lay my Head" plays. Then afterward, all my loved ones will drink and tell funny stories about me.

I hate not having leftovers for lunch. Then I'm left scrounging for something half way decent to nibble.

I need my readers' help now more than ever. Please vote on yr fave picture for SB and I to use as our engagement photo/save the date pic.

That is all....

Ass o' Steel

Ok Ok, I'll admit it. I've been in denial about how fat I've gotten. I have a problem w/ foods. I think I have reverse anorexia.

Anyways, I came home from a vigorous boot camp work out, wherein I literally have to drag my tired ass up the front steps. PAIN, people! It's hurts. So I'm gulping down water like it's going out of style and SB grabs my buttocks and says "Whew! Yr tushie feels like a rock"

And at the end of a very long 8 weeks, I got re-measured. Bad news first, my boobs are still gigantic :( No change. Good news, lost everywhere else and my pants fit! I have cheated, stupid vending machine in the basement. I have a daily craving for peanut M&M's. Oh, and by the by, they have cherry M&M's now. Nothing like a high dose of red dye #5.

Also, I went from 6 push-ups to 24. And that's called progress.

Another 8 more weeks to go....
