Snuggie and Sham-wow January 26, 2009

Anyone who spends a significant amount of time watching tv (cough, me) has probably seen copious amounts of infomercials for random products.  Two of my favorites are the Snuggie and Sham-wow.  I’ve never bought anything from an infomercial before, but for some reason, I feel like my life could be significantly improved by the addition of both the Snuggie and Sham-wow. One, I would be warm all the time, AND still have use of my  thumbs.  I could read in the dark with the booklight that comes with Snuggie.  AND I could clean up virtually any mess with Shamwow. I asked my boyfriend to surprise with either one for Valentine’s Day. I hope he pulls through.

When I logged into WordPress this morning, I immediately saw a blog post about Snuggie, so like any Snuggie-covetter, I clicked on it.  Turns out that there is a Snuggie commercial parody going around that is hilarious.  Check it out on this blog: or below.  


R.I.P. July 22, 2008

Today, Estelle Getty died, 3 days shy of her 85th birthday.  In honor of her life, here are a few choice quotes from Golden Girls, probably one of the best sitcoms ever.


Blanche: Is that all you Italians know how to do, scream and yell?

Sophia: No, we can also cook, sing opera and make love.


Blanche: Is it okay to sleep with a man on the first date?

Sophia: It’s a sin.  I don’t care what anyone says; it’s a sin.  But I’d go back to eating fish on Fridays if his holiness gave that one the green light.


Sophia: When I feel bad I have to take my mind off it.  There’s only one thing that does that to me.

Dorothy: Cooking a big meal.

Sophia: No, making love in a closet.


Sophia: Jealousy is a very ugly thing Dorothy, and so are you in anything backless.


A Plea for the Top Chef Finale… June 11, 2008

Dear God:

Tonight, please make Lisa pack up her knives,

She doesn’t deserve to be here…

She’s ruining our lives.

Her scowly face makes me mad,

And she’s ruining Top Chef

(Sponspored by Glad).

She has a bad tude: she’s not even nice:

Trying to blame others when

She fucked up her rice.

Lisa’s always yelling, starting a fight.

She’s made it further than Dale:

That’s just not right.

What about Antonia, Zoi and Spike?

The fact that Lisa ruined their dreams

I do not like.

Lisa in the finals? Must be a glitch.

It’s time to go home, Lisa:

You evil bitch.


Denise Richards…actually not that complicated. May 29, 2008

Yesterday I blogged about the series premiere of Living Lohan, and today, it’s finally time to discuss “It’s Complicated,” Denise Richard’s new reality show. First, we need to talk about the opening credits of the show…because it’s a voice over basically talking mad shit: “Denise Richards…whore, husband stealer, skank, bad mother, slut, gold-digger…” (you get the idea) and then just: “it’s complicated”. Well, I watched the whole show and dummie Denise only proves that she is all of the bad things the voice over says about her in the opening credits. Zing!

Here’s a little summary of what I learned from the first episode:

1) Denise Richards lives on a farm with her Dad and staff. Oh yeah, and her daughters too…but the staff and her dad are mostly just there to take care of her daughters so she doesn’t have to.

2) Denise is a hick who lives on a farm with about 20,000 dogs and some pigs, too. She seems to like her animals better than her daughters.

3) Denise has fucked a lot of men in hollywood and needs a website to reminder her of this fact.

4) Denise likes bad boys.

5) Every time Denise laughs on camera, I die a little inside.

That’s really all I gleaned from the first episode. Basically, in summation: Denise is a gold-digging hick who was blessed with a good body and Barbie-like looks. She’s a pretty sucky person, and in the words of one Toto: “its very difficult to suck so much that charlie sheen looks like the bigger person”. The end…not that complicated after all.


On Living Lohan May 28, 2008

Well folks, in my absence, a television milestone occured.  A televised event of this paramount importance only comes only once every decade, and once it does, you’d better tune in. Anyway, you get the idea…the show is important.

A welcome glimspe into the mystifying lives of the Lohan clan, Living Lohan focuses mainly on the “career” of Ali and her momager (and possible/probable cokehead) Dina.  Highlights are bulleted below.

  • Nana Lohan is one tough chick and is def HBIC of the Lohan Clan.
  • Ali favors hip hop beats and surrounds herself with shady Long Island “producer” types (Dina encourages this).
  • Dina has a lovely assortment of coordinating track suits.
  • The Lohans google themselves on a regular basis (or have their assistant aid in the process).
  • Dina Lohan has a gaggle of lawyers at bay, ready to slap bloggers with lawsuits at any moment.

One con of the show is the lag in turn time. For example, in the preview for next episode, we see that the Lindsey-blowjob-blurry tape scandal is addressed, but by this point, I’m over it. I don’t even care. I’m way more interested in Lindsey’s possible engagement to Sam Ronson. Overall though, the show is anti-climactic and obviously situationally staged by E! but quite enjoyable nonetheless.
