Do Those Food Carts Always Smell So Good?

I pass these food carts selling some sort of spiced meats, and I'm soo jealous. Smells too good. Always makes me hungry.

Does Suri's Third Birthday Make You Feel Old?!

Can't believe she's turning 3. That Suri Cruise.
What's more shocking is that Tom and Katie are still together and he hasn't shipped her off to whatever planet he fell off of.

Are The Media Merciless To Jennifer Aniston?

The tabs are talking about nervous Jennifer Aniston was at the Oscars since Brangelina was sitting in the front row while she presented.

Of course she was nervous! She's a person, remember? She's a person - not a shell in a dress - that was left for another woman. Publicly.

They keep speculating about her on-again-off-again relationship with John Mayer. Personally,I think she can do better, but we'll see what happens.

But they quote people as saying that she's "needy" and "clingy." We don't know that.

Give the woman a break!

Was CosmoGIRL superfluous?

I feel pretty smart. Kinda.

One of my last semesters in college included a PR class. We had to write a fictional press release. My idea? Hearst publications notifying its readers that due to the environmental concerns, and the glaring similarity to Seventeen magazine, CosmoGIRL would cease publication, or be condensed with Seventeen.

Seventeen has been around forever. It was bought by Hearst, I believe, in the early 2000s, around the time CosmoGIRL was launched.

Over a year later, I was proven prophetic. Yup. Hearst Publications has ceased publication of CosmoGIRL.

They offered both mags for $12/year. I got both. 50 cents a magazine? I ain't complaining.

But how many times can you read about idiotic not-really-famous celebrities, (America's Next Top Model Winner! Heidi Montag from The Hills!) and The Best Make-Up for Your Skin! The Cutest Outfits! What His Kiss Says! How To Make Him Like You! How to Lose Weight Fast! ...all the while convincing us that we aren't all about what we wear, we shouldn't have to make him like us, and we should love our bodies...

So, in the end, will I miss CosmoGIRL?

Not too much.

Is Ryan Seacrest Thoroughly Irritating?

I never understood the appeal of these Carson Daly/Ryan Seacrest all-around hosting guys.
I find them annoying. Ugh.

Z100 replaced Shelley Wade, the daytime DJ, with Ryan Seacrest. This upset me. I loved Shelley. She was so, I dunno, un-annoying! Bring her back!!

Did The Quality at Gap Totally Plummet?

I recently bought what I thought was a 100% cotton skirt there. It was nice and soft, light like cotton. When I checked the label, it said it was 50% modal. Whaaaat??
Glad I only paid $10.99 for it (on sale, of course) but I was thoroughly disappointed.
Gap was once the paragon for quality and basic/classic style; it is no longer.

My "Favorite T"s from there that I have since high school are in better shape than ones I've bought within the past two-three years. This is not good, people.

Is Lindsay Lohan Playin Us?

The New York Post reports that Lindsay Lohan is "dating" Samantha Ronson. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
She has never admitted to this, but they are seen everywhere together. The fact that she refuses to admit anything could lead someone to ask that as well. Does she think there's something wrong with that?
Couldn't they just be really close friends?
Or am I being terribly naive?
