Amniotic Crap

Troublesome Tuesday to you all, my little gingersnaps! In the news, an 83 year old woman is suing Apple FOR ONE MILLION DOLLARS after she walked into the glass door of one of their stores, breaking her nose. Her attorney says that while Apple wants to be cool and modern, they need to appreciate the danger their high-tech architecture poses to some people. Uh... so the 83 year old woman, (presumably with impaired eye sight) walks into Apple's glass door and is suing Apple for having the glass door? Yep, that sounds like America.

Is her 83 year old nose really worth one million dollars? I mean really, how many more years does she think she will get out of that nose anyway? What?

Maybe Apple should sue her for running into their glass door with her nose.

Woman breaks nose at Apple store, sues

Evelyn Paswall, 83, is suing Apple for $1 million after walking into the glass door of the Long Island Apple Store and breaking her nose. Her attorney says, "Apple wants to be cool and modern and have the type of architecture that would appeal to the tech crowd, but on the other hand, they have to appreciate the danger that this high-tech modern architecture poses to some people."

In celebrity news, Jessica Simpson and her fiancee were caught in the crazy Los Angeles rain this weekend. Jessica has recently said she is huge... like weighs 170 pounds *shakes head no* and that the reason for the large size of her belly is that she has extra amniotic fluid *shakes head no*. Unless of course "extra amniotic fluid" is code for "eating too many hamburgers" and if that's the case, then I've got some extra amniotic fluid too.

Jessica, stop making excuses... so you gained a ton of weight... lots of women do that when they're pregnant. *raises my hand* That's what happens when you're eating for two four. Glad to see you're not wearing those ridiculous heels in the rain.

Pregnant Jessica Simpson, Eric Johnson Step Out In The Rain

Posted: 03/26/2012 9:26 am Updated: 03/26/2012 3:24 pm

A very pregnant Jessica Simpson was out with Eric Johnson this weekend.

Baby watch is officially on for Jessica Simpson! The very pregnant star, wearing a Camilla Franks dress, was spotted braving the rain with fiance Eric Johnson while out and about in Los Angeles Sunday.

The happy couple stepped out for some lunch together, and soon they'll be asking for a table for three. Simpson is expecting a baby girl any day now.

Earlier in March, Simpson made the press rounds for her NBC show, "Fashion Star," and probably overshared a bit when it comes to her labor and delivery.

"Whenever my water breaks it'll be like a fire hydrant!" she said on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!".

And so Summit/Lionsgate just released a teaser trailer for "Breaking Dawn Part II". This should be exciting... I'm especially looking forward to the huge buildup to the war that never happens. I would be breaking tradition if I missed the midnight premiere of this, but I'm putting my foot down... I'm only going to see it at the midnight opening if my NY Sicilian heckler (AKA "Spank") can fly out here and see it with me. If not, I'll take Mr. G out for drinks that weekend so we can get silly (read: drunk) and heckle it together. Who's with me?

And now, for today's FAIL. There's the all-diamond ring, and then there's this. Ladies, don't settle. There's a happy medium... Say maybe one center diamond? Or a sapphire? Garnet even?

And now, for today's WIN! They look as uncomfortable as all get-out, but I'm so getting myself a pair of these next time we go to Yosemite. And I will traipse through the snow, making animal tracks and then hide & take pictures while all the tourists look for the animal that made them.

“Outliers (Trace)” by Canadian artist Maskull Lasserre is a series of shoes that have been modified to leave realistic animal footprints. Lasserre has been using the shoes to leave animal tracks in cities in Canada and America since 2011. We recently posted about Lasserre’s wonderful carved anatomical sculptures.

Hey, WTF?!! You know, this couple actually put time into these tattoos that will never *fit* together.

And that's all the time I have for today. So if you got a pair of those animal track shoes... which would you pick? Bear claw? Hoof? Wolf paw? I'm going for the bear. Until tomorrow then...

Mark Twain's birth and death both happened on days in which Haley's Comet could be seen.

What's interesting is that he even foretold of this happening, quoted as saying, "I came in with Halley's Comet in 1835. It is coming again next year, and I expect to go out with it." Sure enough, the next year, he died of a heart attack on April 21, 1910, when the comet was visible.

Halley's comet has been observed for centuries now. Its first appearance was recorded as early as the 200s BC. It is visible from Earth around every 75 years. It was last seen in February 1986, so the next predicted date for it to be visible is July 2061.




  1. I love those shoes, yeah, I'd go for the bear tracks.

    1. Me too. I'd love to lay bear tracks all over Los Angeles hiking trails to confuse the locals.

  2. I'm with you! You guys can drink and heckle and I'll be the designated driver. ;)

  3. The heckler is IN! I don't think I could see it PERIOD if I wasn't lit up like a Christmas tree (decorated with Patron, of course). Those are my terms. Oh and I should put in for my time off now since I just got an email saying that I cannot take off one day a month from now. #lookingforanewjob

    ~ Spank

    PS: If a man gave me an engagement ring with a heineken logo on it, I'd break up with him. Everyone knows the only way to MY heart is Bass or Blue Moon. *rolls my eyes*

    1. YES!!! The Spank will be here for Breaking Dawn Part Duh!!! I will provide the Patron and your terms will be met!

  4. Oh and I have a lot of amniotic fluid built up from when I adopted my two kids. #liesitellmyselfwhenidontwanttoadmititisjusttoomanychocolatebars

  5. Wait...heckling is permitted at the Twilight movies? Does that apply for all of them? Or just Breaking Dawn? If heckling is permitted, I might have gone to see these movies!!! :)

    I think I'd have to go with the bear paw print shoes just because that would make people wonder where the prints came from around here.

    1. Jeff, the Twilight movies that Mr. G didn't work on (New Moon & Breaking Dawn 1 & 2) are especially open to ridicule and heckling. Heckle forth in peace. ;)
