I always have a chuckle when I see what's "trending" when I log into my mail account. I image, yes it's trending...right out of the office of those that handle that list, based on advertising budgets, political influences, and such.

Absolutely. Though I'm sure that living in a show business bubble since young childhood can seriously warp a person's perception of money. It seems that he could use some time in the real world for a number of reasons.

True.

This is part of the reason I never bought into the vilify Michael Jackson thing. The guy may have been strange, but I honestly believe he never had a chance to be normal. Being a millionaire when you're under ten years old tends to distort things, IMHO.

That said, from what I just read, the kid on 2 1/2 Men wasn't scheduled to be featured in the last two episodes of this season and his future with the show is now uncertain.

WTTW. Never believe your own hype. *sigh*

Anyone have Christmas gift ideas for my new nieces? My first inclination was a Christmas ornament, but my mom has already staked that out with plenty of ornaments to go around. Sigh. Given that they'll be all of 1 or 3 months old, I realize they don't actually care one way or another (unlike older kids who would notice and care if they didn't get a gift), so perhaps a savings bond? I'm completely stuck on this.
Something that can be hung on the baby carrier that moves, that they can pull and makes a sound, put in their mouth...I see how many young ones enjoy these sorts of things...if not usable now it would be put to use within months. A cute bootie/shoe or hat? Cute clothes if you have ideas of sizes?

The aroma of Christmas sweets, Christmas treats...those stocking stuffers will be ready soon. So far bolinhas, lemony coconut sweet cupcakes, nankatais, and three types of milk toffee...hmmm

Baby Einstein Music CD's. - Each and every one of my nephews as well as my own grandchildren received, from us, several of the Baby Einstein Music choices...when they were newborn to 6 months old, covering their first Christmas,,,,they loved the music,,,and parents loved the music too as they also took it in the car to play for the babies so it was a familiar thing, not just when rocking their kids in the house.

I'm going on holiday tomorrow! 5 days with BF's family, just chilling and not having to work the busiest retail week of the year.

Also, big relationship step forward? We're addressing our presents as "From us" rather than "From me". We're an Us now.

I'm so excited for Christmas. And everything.

Have you ever seen the movie, "It Happened One Night?" Great movie. Academy Award winner from 1934? I think. Your post makes me want to burst into a random song some guy in the movie was singing ...

"Young people in loooove ... are very seldom hungry. Young people in looooove ... are almost never hungry."

You have to watch the movie to get the context. American Great Depression era movie. But still, the take-home message is about young people in loooove. That's exactly how you sound.


Enjoy, L. Enjoy. :)

I just got the absolutely nicest email from my branch chief regarding the non-promotion. He said a lot of things that I truly needed to hear. Apart from the immediate tears, he's made me feel much better about things this morning.

...still bitter though...

so glad Richard Engel was released...for all the obvious reasons but also because he is on the list of men I like to drool over...I don't know his orientation and I don't care
