Give A Damn: Helen Mirren for Budweiser

Budweiser’s Super Bowl spot features Dame Helen Mirren admonishing anyone that might consider driving while under the influence. Hello, I’m Helen Mirren, a notoriously frank and uncensored British lady. The Collective “We” are dumbfounded that people still drive drunk. So...

inebriati: Blue Bubbly?

Just a quick entry as work is both very busy and very frustrating today, but I am determined to stick to the “write every other day” rule I set for myself, and sometimes that means not having loads to say....

reviews: flawless victory

The reviews for The Last Airbender have, so far, been delicious in their hatred for the movie. It seems that our culture always needs a whipping boy, so to speak, and this movie is the current one bent over with...

weekend wrap-up: on the 7th day

Compared to Saturday, Sunday was actually pretty tame. I didn’t get to bed until late the previous night, so I slept right on through the time change, though the change in light outside was pretty easy to notice. In an...

weekend wrap-up: Halloween!

The past few years I’ve been going into Halloween with no real plans, but seeing what comes of the evening. I don’t do costumes unless I’ve been invited to a costume party and I really don’t enjoy going out to...

photo: good morning!

Good morning, indeed! Looking out the windows this morning and seeing this view… it’s one of those moments where you think to yourself, “Yeah, this was a good choice.” The move is over, and while I mourn the loss of...

time: birthday week, birthday week…

I am still deriving far too much pleasure from adding whatever word I like after “birthday” and singing it to the tune of Birthday Sex by Jeremih.* I was lucky (?) enough to hear this song during brunch at Tonic...

TGIF: Woo Hoo!

That pretty much sums it up. Been a long-ass (and unintentionally blog-quiet) week and I’m ready for the weekend. TGIF, bitches! My brain has opted to take off early today as it’s still suffering a bit from last night’s Golden...

ads: wine bar or sex dungeon?

Saw this ad for Veritas Wine Bar in today’s Express and I couldn’t help but wonder if it was intended for next month’s Pride publications. Or has come out of the closet finally reached the state of general cultural usage?...

food: for the shorties

After a long day at the office, it’s rather nice to know you’ve got a good comforting meal awaiting you. This recipe for BBQ Beef Short Ribs done in the crock-pot is my equivalent of coming home to an easy...

inauguration: balls!

That was indeed one of the high points of watching the tube on Tuesday night, seeing Anderson Cooper deftly and coolly say ‘Balls’ about three times per sentence. I suppose the word comes out as easily as it goes in…...

chores: clean, clean, clean. repeat.

I suppose it’s a good thing that my apartment is barely recognizable. I’m seeing more floor space and more gleaming surfaces than I have in a long time. I make no excuses for it, but being busy and lazy tends...

food: pack it on, it’s Christmas!

Spotted on the front cover of this morning’s Express. Talk about a no-brainer headline, hm? Researchers predict more people will ditch diets for the holidays: Holidays are often associated with parties, goodies and the inevitable weight gain. Studies show Americans...

holiday: Repeal Day!

If you don’t already know and your friendly neighborhood lush hasn’t informed you, December 5th is Repeal Day. A day to celebrate the 21st amendment… that repealed the 18th amendment, which enacted prohibition. I’ll be out enjoying a drink with...

video: those poor monkeys…

I already talked a bit about No Heroics and last night was the final episode of the current series. I hope that they’ll be renewed for a second one. It relied on some sitcom staples, the death of a friend*...
