But in the meantime check out this literal version of total eclipse of the heart. It is brilliant. Watch the whole thing. I know it is 5 minutes but it is all hilarious.

18 Again

Anyone want to see 18 Again wed night with Julie, Megan and me at courthouse?

Shocking AI finale

I'm kind of over facebook and would rather talk about the upset here amongst friends. If anyone thinks this was not at least partly a gay backlash they are nuts. A bunch of housewives in red states who think Kris with a K was such a "nice boy." We'll see who has the better career! I look forward to following all the things Adam does.

One Year

muertemaria's picture

So this week I have now been living in London for One Year. Craziness. Some thoughts about my time so far:

  • I love living in Islington, it is buzzy and there are people and a park
  • I like the bus better then the tube
  • TV is really not very good here
  • I like my local pub the Duke of Cambridge
  • It is great that there is so much thai food options in the grocery store. I love green curry
  • Going to the movies here is expensive 13.50!
  • I like being able to go to the continent for weekend breaks
  • The winter here SUCKS! the sun goes down at 3:30 it is terrible
  • I am glad I found a car service that will take me to heathrow for 30 pounds
  • I have a great farm share
  • I find it weird that eggs are just sitting out - but I am getting used to it
  • I HATE my shower it sucks to have to hold it over my head
  • I am starting to say words like tube, brilliant, proper, sorted, etc
  • Still no accent
  • I miss my kitties
  • I still feel sometimes that I am on vacation
  • I get lost a lot still - but I think that is what makes this place fun

Things I still need to work on:

AI and GG

Has everyone downloaded AL's version of One on Itunes? It is phenomenal, I highly recommend it.

Also the finale of GG last night was great. I loved tying up some very important loose story lines but leaving the intrigue open with some new twists for next year. I also love that they are all going to NYU. I wonder what will happen to keep Serena from going to Brown. Can't wait to find out. I also appreciated that it wasn't a sappy, we're graduating from HS episode with silly speeches and everyone crying. They were very practical about it.


Who wants to run a 5K race with me in June? It benefits the Amazon rainforest. www.actrunfortherainforest.org

If you had to go into witness protection

muertemaria's picture

I have been watching that show In Plain Sight and I like it. I was thinking about it, if you had to go into witness protection and you got to pick the city, where would you want to go, assume that it has to be a city/state that you know no one in already. I think that I would have to stay in the lower states because I really don't do the cold, the pacific northwest is still too rainy.

I think I would go with Charleston, SC would be a doable option. Other cities that I would consider:

  • Albuquerque, NM
  • Santa Fe, NM
I think that might actually be the only cities in states where I don't know anyone that I would consider. Anyone else want to play the game?

You can help Eliminate Tetanus in newborn babies

Hi everyone,

I am doing a 24 hour charity event for Unicef and Pampers, and it would be AMAZING if you could donate even a few dollars to the cause. Every 3 minutes a child dies of Tetanus and this is totally preventable with vaccinees.


It is only valid for the next 15 hours so please don't think twice, just donate a little. I will really appreciate your help!

I even made a video


Star Trek

Has anyone else seen it?  I loved the poo out of it.  I know i appreciate sci fi more than the average person, but I thought this was so clever and well done and can't recall the last time I left the theater so satisfied.  It was incredible and I'm going to see it again.

American Idol Concert

I am ordering tickets at 4:00- if you are interested email me and I'll order for you

Lizberg Wineries

Anyone interested in a winery day in Loudounish area?  Mo and I are interested and I can drive if anyone wants to join us- there are tons of wineries and a good way to enjoy a nice day.  Let me know if you're interested and we can try to pick a date.

Ray's Hell Burger


Hopefully everyone saw that Obama and Biden ate at RHB yesterday (Cherrysingers did you get in Friday night?)

 So disappointing that they both ordered medium well! Shocking.

Letter to yourself

muertemaria's picture

Just wanted to point out this great story/post/whatever on the Guardian today. Stephan Fry wrote a letter to his teenage self and then the comments are all what others would write to themselves. I find it brillant. I can't stop reading all the comments. It is funny how many people write something along the lines of, "don't worry so much"

Things I would say:

  • When you disqualify your relay team senior year - really it is not a big deal you were still winning the meet by a mile. Don't take it so hard.
  • Stay in touch with the people who liked in high school, it really isn't that difficult.
  • Be yourself - people like you better when you aren't trying so hard to be like someone else.  
  • When you have to get a cortizone shot to keep swimming, as much as you like it - it is a sign to stop.
  • Moderate - Moderation 
  • You do get to live in another country!
  • When you get the option of a convertible or the Dodge Shadow - Pick the convertible this time.

So is everyone enjoying Lost this season? I have to say, I would really like all episodes to be much longer, which in the end is good for a show to have.

Every time that LeFlur gives someone a nickname, it still makes me giggle. Do we think they are going to make it back to normal time? Is Faraday really dead? I don't feel like I got enough back story on him. 

Ms. S&C Thanks You

Shoes and Cocktails got a nod in today's edition of the Washington Post's Express paper (see page 36--the blog log). Whether it was from Mere's re-tweet or LC sharing it with her FB friends... I don't know how they got word of the bunny's birthday party, but Ms. S&C really appreciates your support! I'm totally flattered.
