Is That A Snake In Your Pocket?

Happy Friday everyone! You know what that means, right? I sure hope so, because I don't. The temperature in Isles of Scilly (silly), England is 61 degrees today. I want to live in the Isles of Scilly. In fact I'm pretty sure I was born there. Scilly runs through my veins. Can't escape! Speaking of escaping, you'll be certain to have a long commute home from work today because it is Friday, and as a day ending in "y", it means the traffic on the 405 is bumper to bumper.

This just in... pointing a laser pointer directly into your eye can cause damage. This earth shattering news was released after reports of injuries to eyes from laser pointers.

My favorite part of the article is: A spokesman said: "The Health Protection Agency has not been made aware of any injuries to the surface of the eye caused by laser pointers"

Perhaps the Health Protection Agency failed to look at the warning label on laser pointer packaging.

Some people really really don't like snakes. I am not one of those people. But Salma Hayek is. She really doesn't like them. A snake slithered by while Salma Hayek, Maya Rudolf and Maria Bello were being interviewed by Extra about their new film "Grown Ups". Check out Salma's reaction:

What, was Salma trying to climb on Maya's shoulders? Maya is the only one who didn't move. I can't figure out if she's using her arm to give support to Salma or to fend her off.

Brad Pitt was photographed coming out of "a Culver City studio" (Sony) late last night by the poprocksies.

Dear Brad Pitt: Please hurry up and finish whatever project you are working on, that requires you to have that hideous beard, so you can shave it off and be hot once again. Sincerely, me.

The actress formerly known as Tiffany Amber Thiessen. (now just Tiffany Thiessen) is pregnant (and I'm guessing in her 3rd trimester).


Though TMZ made the biting comment "Tiffany has never been a bigger star than she is now", I find it refreshing to know that some celebrities are actually real humans. As opposed to Heidi Klum, which I'm convinced is a robot.

Hey WTF?!!!


I'm simultaneously compelled to both ridicule and admire the owner of this vehicle. The critic in me knows this guy dresses up at conventions and lives in his parents' basement. The geek in me wants to steal the car from him so it can be mine.

And that's all the time I have for today. Guess what guys, I'm going on vacation! For a week! That's right. You will have to find your own weather and traffic reports, as I will be off with my family for some R&R. Unless of course I find myself with empty time on my hands, in which case I might sneak away and say hello. I ain't promising nothing. *channeling Hoggle* But in case I don't return for a week (or month), there is some vital information I must leave with you...

A tiger's tongue is so rough it can lick the paint off of a building.

-OMG Facts

    I want to be tough and cool, but if a snake came around, I would probably make even bigger drama than Salma did.
    And thank you for posting a video that works outside US as well, some other big media houses/websites failed.

    PS: the geek car is so cute: is that R2D2?? or the thingy from the Thunderbirds??

  2. You can't leave for a week!! I'm having a baby TODAY! How will I get my traffic, weather and other snarky comments about life while I'm in the hospital?
    We'll miss you!!!

  3. You know, I knew 12 years ago (when one got pointed at my eye) that laser pointers were dangerous. Luckily, so did the doctor I saw at the ER. How has it taken others this long to figure this out?

  4. I love Salma's screaming "NOOOOOOOO!" near the end-like someone was stabbing her! I mean, I get it, she's afraid of the snake--but what does she think it's going to do--climb up and get her?!

    That pic of Brad Pitt looks like a mug shot. Not cute.

    Have a fab vacay!

  5. Awww, Tiffany looks normal. Didn't we all look like that and NOT like Heidi Klum??

  6. Brilliant, as always! I totally agree. I love when stars show they are just people too... well, they are... usually. Heidi Montag was made by Mattel.

  7. Hmmm... every time I threaten to go away for a week I get comments comments comments. Maybe I should go away more often! :)

  8. Oh and Scaarlet... you're having the baby today???!!! Good luck er... break a leg... uh... Have a good time... uh... Congratulations!

  9. Have a great vacation Ginger, but "should you need us...?"

    ...We'll be here anxiously awaiting your return. :)


  10. Fucking cracking the hell up. Salma Hayek's screams/moans while she's climbing over everyone. HYSTERICAL. Can you imagine her being that scared of snakes yet had to be the vamp in that one movie with her carrying the python? Holy toldeo batman. I get the being scared and I feel for her but that shit was FUNNY!
