THIS DAY. Oh, this day. I think my big mistake was the Twitter text and matching text to my sister declaring, "I'm having the nicest day off." Right there - my downfall.

At 2:30pm a major supplier called with near catastrophic news that turned the rest of my day on it's ear, forced me into the office for four hours, and delivered a punch that will keep on giving and giving and giving. I shouted "FUCK" at outlandish decibels more times today than I can count. The walls of my car and house were vibrating. My major victory is that I kept the shouting out of the office. Fuck, fuck, fuck. It's bad enough that the issue is as bad as it is but this was my day off. This was the day off I was taking after not taking my days off on Friday and Monday. I'm cranky.

I can end the pity party right there. The start to my day was actually pretty spectacular and, up until 2:30, everything I was hoping for from the day. I watched Joey on Ellen and then ran my requisite errands. I now have my framed International Star Registry certificate in my hot little hands. Well, it's in my office, soon to reside on my wall, but you get the point. I found a $50 Bed Bath & Beyond gift card and a $100 AmEx gift card and used them to buy $90 in candles. Candles are expensive. Now I'm sitting on my couch watching The West Wing with four of my new candles burning. (It's "Inauguration Part 2. Donna is about to take a fall for Jack Reece.)

Here's all of the other good stuff keeping me from damaging the structure of my hope with a sledgehammer:

  • Tickets to RENT with Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp in Detroit on 2/22!

  • New purchases from I picked up two copies of "If These Wall Could Talk 2" ([ profile] carta - one has your name on it) and a book I saw in the VSL:Science newsletter today: Is God a Mathematician? by Mario Livio

    Nobel Laureate Eugene Wigner once wondered about "the unreasonable effectiveness of mathematics" in the formulation of the laws of nature. Is God a Mathematician? investigates why mathematics is as powerful as it is. From ancient times to the present, scientists and philosophers have marveled at how such a seemingly abstract discipline could so perfectly explain the natural world. More than that -- mathematics has often made predictions, for example, about subatomic particles or cosmic phenomena that were unknown at the time, but later were proven to be true. Is mathematics ultimately invented or discovered? If, as Einstein insisted, mathematics is "a product of human thought that is independent of experience," how can it so accurately describe and even predict the world around us? More )

  • Playboy interview with Hugh Laurie

  • Daniel Radcliffe Invites Obama Girls to Hogwarts

  • Via [ profile] ghettogreta: Every year, Lean Cuisine offers these really cute lunch bags for sale at their website. The bags are 10 bucks a piece and for every bag sold, 5 dollars goes to the Susan G. Komen for the cure foundation. I eat at least 5 Lean Cuisine meals every week so this is the perfect way to support cancer research and my favorite frozen meal company. Site is here for anyone who's interested.

  • New Pink video for 'Please Don't Leave Me' )

  • Instinct interviewed Bruce Boxleitner a few months ago and it's all about SMK. &hearts &hearts &hearts

  • And the Girls are on the cover of Playboy again. I have all three (courtesy of my staff which worries me in a way I'm not going to delve into). I didn't scan the photos but here's Kendra's cover. More hearts! &hearts &hearts &hearts

  • Sally always seems to know when I need her most as evidenced by the way she's currently sprawled across my lap. *loves*

    Today, months after seeing the movie in theaters, I finally saw the ending of the Sex and the City movie. The video cut out when we saw it in the theaters so I heard the end but didn't get to see it. I love this movie even more when I can see the ending. Oh, Carrie. You're the best.

    There have been a number of posts on my friends lists about women we love and one person I haven't seen anywhere is Jennifer Aniston. She has such a likable quality. Even when she's wearing next to nothing the first thing you're drawn to is her face.

    Wonderful photos from her GQ photo shoot )

    There's a lot going on at work tomorrow so I plan to try to get into bed with my book by 9am and get into the office by 7:30am. We'll see how that goes.

    • Here's a Kickass photo shoot with Tricia Helfer and Jamie Bamber. Thanks to [ profile] wickedelf for sharing the link. They're gorgeous together and it's such a fun shoot.

    • Big thank yous and hugs to [ profile] powrhug for my birthday present! It's perfect and I have just the right spot for it.

    • I got my copies of The Great Snape Debate and The Unauthorized Harry Potter today. It's really starting to feel like the end is coming and I'm reading everything I can along the way. (Though I do need to get my act together and re-read HBP before DH arrives.)

    • Orlando Bloom. *sigh* It's clearly his pretty, pretty face that does it for me but that's more than enough.

      More scans )

    • And the new issue of Men's Vogue has an interview with Hugh Laurie. He wears a bike so, so well.

    Today was the book club filming with Michael Chabon that I mentioned last week and the whole experience far exceeded expectations. I thought I'd show up and see a few chairs and a guy with a camcorder but there was craft services and a make-up lady and camera crews and boom mikes and professional lighting and WINE AT 9am OMG JOY. Chabon was fantastic, I liked the other book group members, and I thought the conversation flowed well. The bonus at the end was a $100 Borders gift card which is going straight to season 6 of ST:TNG.

    I finally finished the book yesterday afternoon. I didn't love it - the film noir crime novel genre isn't my thing - but there were themes in the book that really resonated with me particularly in relation to my identity as a post-Holocaust American Jew and the idea of homeland. Now I'm interested to read the reviews.

    The current issue of EW has short interview with Tim McGraw.

    Two more scans behind the cut. Click images for larger versions. )

    A bit of housekeeping...[ profile] canadiankracka and [ profile] chicksrus - I'll mail your mags within the next week. [ profile] arsenicjade - Your sticker and book are in the mail. Look out for a FedEx package on Wednesday.

    Okay, seriously? I'm so excited about the Seedy Hotel Room TOMORROW I almost can't think about it. Tomorrow! I bought my ticket on March 13th. I was excited even before we got Hewlett. Now I'm gearing up for a Hewlett, Momoa, Shanks trifecta. And a seedy hotel room. Tomorrow!!

    (Note to [ profile] kiffle and [ profile] cranberryink: My flight was changed and I get in at 11:28am instead of 10:40am. I have a car service arranged and I'm not checking my bag so, if all goes well, I should be at the hotel by 1pm - just in time for Gold Package pre-registration. EEEEP!)

    The current issue has an interview with Erik Kripke & Robert Singer. Scans behind the cut along with a scan of a short article that mentions Peter Jackson optioning the Temeraire series. Click the image for a larger version. I love the comments about the relationship between Jensen and Jared.

    This way for the rest )

    * This here is illustrates one of the many reasons I love Justin. He's not afraid to make fun of himself and he always looks good doing it. (Well, except for the omelet. Yellow tights are rough on even the best of us.)

    * [ profile] ghettogreta - Here's the Vanity Fair scan of Jennifer Nettles you requested. The text at the bottom is a little blurry but hopefully the text isn't what you were after.

    * My garage door isn't closing correctly and a neighborhood animal ate my pumpkin. I need both a full time maintenance man and a full time gourd sitter.

    * My mom's oncologist recommended the radical double mastectomy. It's not a surprise but it feels heavier now that it's real. I'm so proud of my mom for taking proactive measures. She's brave and strong and doesn't need her breasts to continue being either of those things.

    * Warren Beatty! He's so reclusive, particularly since he settled into family life, so this week's interview in EW came as a huge surprise! (And a very welcome one, at that.) 25 years after it was released, "Reds" comes to DVD and Beatty is finally doing press on the film. He even participated in a DVD documentary! I may have to override my "No DVD's until the place in FL sells" rule for this one.

    Two more article scans and the DVD review. EW gave in a A. I give it a YAY! Hee! )

    * I saw The Departed last night and it was everything I expected. (Except I didn't know Martin Sheen was in it so that was an unexpected treat.) Matt Damon is an actor who never comes to mind when I think of my favorites but I consistently love his performances and I haven't seen Leonardo DiCaprio in anything since Titanic so I wasn't sure what to expect but he did a damn fine job. Spoilery bits... )

    * I'm still disappointed the Tigers trounced the Yankees but it's always fun to be in a city so excited by the playoffs (especially when it's taken 19 years to get here).

    * I watched this season of Project Runway in bits and pieces so I just caught up on Tim Gunn's visits to the final four designers' homes. More than anything, Laura's Manhattan apartment stuck with me. Holy shit - I can't begin to fathom what rent is like on that place. Did she ever share her background? What does her husband do? Is it family money? That place was nice

    * My two month MS Office trial is about to run out and I'm hoping to find a version to download. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    * George Clooney is on the cover of this month's Vanity Fair and I've been meaning to scan the interview for days. Sigh. George Cloony.

    Two more scans. What I'd give for him to look at me that way... )

    It's kind of disconcerting to see them naked. Holly has some damn small nipples.

    ETA: Dreamhost is having server speed issues. If you're having problems, try again in the morning. Hopefully whatever the server issue is will be resolved then.
