  • Songs of Summer July 22, 2014
    It happens every summer. An ear worm hits the airwaves and it’s in your head all summer. Some I like, some I could live without. (Remember the summer of Gangam style). This summer, I’m humming along to Imagine Dragons, On Top of the World, Fancy by Iggy Azalea, and I could live without Happy byRead more...
  • Pokemon Tournament July 9, 2014
    This weekend my boys begged me to drive them to a local Pokemon tournament at a local comic/collector shop. Now, I knew what they didn’t; that the tournament would be a micro version of comic con or similar con. They’d never seen or been to anything like it. Nor had I, because my choice forRead more...
  • Help me! July 3, 2014
    Last Saturday I had the honor of being one of the featured authors at the Frederick Book festival put on by the awesome Vivi Dumas. This was only the third book fair I’ve attended as a signing author and I need to work out some kinks in the Lynne Silver booth. As I realized thisRead more...

Who would you Do: Superbowl Quarterbacks

I think we all know this Sunday is the big game, so normally I’d throw up a few photos of shirtless footballers and take a poll. But Yahoo sports posted THIS article and I felt I had to comment.  To summarize, the NY Post “somehow” obtained a private email from Gisele Bundchen to family and friends asking them to pray  send positive vibes to “Tommy” for the big game.

Sweet, right? Well the article’s author didn’t think so. He derides Bundchen and Brady as not deserving positive energy. And mocks Bundchen for having the audacity to send the email.

You know who deserves to get mocked? The article’s author. How dare he write rude things about something most of us participate in on a daily basis via Facebook, religious organizations or other places. How many of you were asked this week to send positive vibes to someone because they were in the hospital or interviewing for a job? Show of hands? Mine are up.

Why shouldn’t Gisele & Tom get to do the same. Cause they’re famous. Sorry, Yahoo Sports Author, 1. the email wasn’t newsworthy and 2. you look like a snarky jerk.

I’m sending positive energy to both the Giants and the Patriots that they play to the best of their abilities and remain injury free. I don’t have a dog in the race- I’m not a particular fan of either team, but I AM a fan of true love. So shout out to Gisele & Tom for demonstrating what normal couples do when at the precipice of a big event.

Who would you do: Vampires of Twilight

I’m not a Twilight fan. I’m not a hater, I just never identified with Bella as a character and I found Edward’s stalker behavior skeevy no sexy. (and yes I read the books. Twice in fact to see if I was missing something that everyone else seemed to get)

But there were some things I liked about the movies. Make that 2 things. Forget Team Edward or Team Jacob. I’m Team Lutz & Team Rathbone all the way!

So, who would you do?

1. Edward Cullen

2. Jasper Cullen

3. Emmett Cullen

4. Dr. Carlisle

I’m torn between Emmet & Jasper. Guess I’ll just have to take them both!

Who Would you Do: Lollapalooza line-up

Perry Farrell is gonna announce the upcoming Lollapalooza line up soon. Since the original lolla had such impact on my life, let’s go with men on the tour, past, present or future.

1. Perry Farrell (the genius behind the event)

 

 

 

 

2. Anthony Kiedis

 

 

3. Dave Navarro

 

 

 

Anyone else? 36 year old me really doesn’t want any of them, but 18 year old me wanted all of them. I once saw Dave Navarro in Vegas and he definitely had an x-factor cool vibe going, but he is too short for me. Not sure we’d fit well in bed.

Who would you do: TV Cops

Thanks to Lauren Hawkeye for this burst of hotness. We love those men in blue. And on tv they’re pretty good too.

So…which officer can cuff you?

1. Alex o’loughlin – Hawaii 5-)

2. Chris Meloni- Law & Order

3. Johnny Depp- 21 Jump Street

4. Rick Schroder- NYPD Blue

Who would you do: How I met your mother

It’s my favorite show. If you haven’t seen it you are missing some of the best comedy writing on the telly. So…who would you do?

1. Barney Stinson

2. Ted Mosby

3. Marshall Erickson

 

Those who read this blog on a regular basis will not be surprised to learn I choose Marshmellow. He’s funny, confident and adorable.
