Holidays are coming

For years, I've measured the countdown to Christmas from when I first see this advert on televsion:

I saw it this week. It makes me feel all Christmassy [note: not a word] and excited.

I love Entourage. I also love this picture because it has the cast of Entourage and Kanye West. Anytime I can combine Kanye with anything is a good time to me.

Moving on...

Once upon a time I was a loyal Entourage viewer. This was when I was home from school on breaks, and my parents had not decided to forego the Direct TV package that had HBO in favor of some package that has every sports channel known to man. Why we need the Big Ten network is beyond me.

That being said, I've missed a few seasons, but this is why I love Netflix. I'm currently catching back up with the show, and while I've only gotten through Season 1, which I've seen like a billion times, this show never fails to deliver the laughs.

I don't think I could ever live in LA, but sometimes I wish I could act like Ari Gold. You know, funny, offensive one liners, (not that it is my goal in life to offend people), cool catch phrases and super cocky. I mean, I even have a shirt that says, "Let's hug it out". But I'm not, and I won't ever be, but whatever. A girl can dream.

Sure, Adrian Grenier is beyond amazingly goregous with his too good to be true blue eyes, and his amazing, amazing head of curly hair, but I think I really watch for Ari, Turtle and Drama. They make me laugh. I want to kick E off the show, because sometimes, to be quite honest, he pisses me off.

I think the season finale was last night, and Michael Phelps had like a 3 second cameo. I still don't have HBO at home, but the second I strike out on my own, that'll be the first thing I do.

Spider Solitaire

This game is like crack. I used to play it daily at my office job when the person who sat behind me was away from their desk and couldn’t catch me. It’s worst when you try and do four suits, because you can’t stop until you’ve conquered it and that could be eternity. I earned mega respect from my brother when I completed it, but was faced with major disappointment when all I got were fireworks just like on the other rounds. I did the impossible, at least give me a puppy or something!

Celebrity Baby Names

What better way for celebrities to show us how special they are than to name their children out of this world names that in the real world, would lead you to be bullied and teased throughout life.

I’m always excited when a new celebrity baby appears and I have to admit, if they are adorned with a normal moniker like ‘Joe’ or ‘Kate’ then I’m disappointed. That’s why I am very excited by Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz christening their new born son Bronx Mowgli Wentz. It works on two levels, not only is the name itself batshit crazy, but the kid’s initials are BMW. Wow. That’s some clever stuff.

I wonder what the significance of Bronx is. I’m 99% sure that Ashlee has never visited the Bronx in her life. I have. It’s not somewhere you want your kid affiliated with. I was too scared to go out at night and the McDonalds on Fordham Road didn’t have ice cream...but that’s a different story.

Mowgli, as everyone knows, is the orphan brought up by wolves, bears and a panther in the Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book. Was this Pete’s favourite book as a kid? Does he have aspirations for his Son to be some kind of jungle explorer/wildlife expert?

I can’t wait for little Bronx to meet Brooklyn Beckham. Please, let a celeb name their kid Queens and we can have the start of a ‘Five Boroughs’ band.

Nick and Nora’s Infinite playlist

Sometimes living in England sucks. We get everything late; movies, TV, music....why? Are we the slow, inbred cousins of the yanks who produce all the big hitters? No, we are the country whose empire once stretched as far as the other side of the world then back again. So why do we have to wait forever to watch the movies out now in the US? It’s not fair.

I am really looking forward to seeing ‘Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist’. It stars my crush, Michael Cera. Its about a guy getting over his first love, who meets a girl that could be his next....

The trailer looks awesome, the reviews are good, so why do I have to wait until January to watch it? Boo!

Barack Obama

I am not an American. I don't live in the States. I can't vote today. But I really hope that when I wake up tomorrow morning, Barack Obama is the 44th President of the United States of America.
