A Plug

My friend started a fashion blog. She's having a great giveaway to kick off the new year. She's also taking pictures of herself in little black dresses a la Audrey Hepburn until the official launch on January 1. You should all be following her. Just sayin'.

Isn't she fabulous?

I'm headin' down the Atlanta highway

Guess who was singing and dancing to Love Shack in her husband's truck last night? If you guessed hotpants™, you guessed right. (We were in the parking lot of Bass Pro Shops.) The Hero interrupted me to say someone was pointing and laughing at me. I turned around to see my coworker, Heather, and her husband. She had been honking her horn and waving her arms to get my attention. I was oblivious. When Love Shack's on, I apparently tune out the rest of the world. I'm glad she didn't have a video camera because I must have looked like a fool.

If you see a faded sign by the side of the road that says
15 miles to the...
Love Shack!
Love Shack yeah
I'm headin' down the Atlanta highway
Lookin' for the love getaway
Heading for the love getaway, love getaway

I also received various gift cards and a few other items I can't remember at the moment. To say I'm blessed would be an understatement. There's nothing quite like the joy felt at Christmas. I hope your holiday was as wonderful as ours.

My Favorite Christmas Movies

"You smell like beef and cheese. You don't smell like Santa."
"The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear."

The Family Stone
"You have a freak flag. You just don't fly it."
"She has got this throat-clearing tick... it's like she's digging for clams!"

Home Alone
"You guys give up yet? Or are you thirsty for more?"
"Bless this highly nutritious microwavable macaroni and cheese dinner and the people who sold it on sale. Amen."

What are your favorite Christmas movies?

People suck the Christmas spirit
right out of you

I usually do most of my shopping online. This year, I waited too long. I remember now why I shop online. Last minute Christmas shoppers are a-holes.

I was sad to hear the news of Brittany Murphy's passing. She always seemed so vibrant, happy and full of life. I'll always remember her as Tai from Clueless. She was a great actress who left this world too soon. 2009 has seen a lot of celebrity deaths. I hope 2010 is different.

The Talk of Tinseltown
Charity + Cheaters

Courtney Love lost legal control of her daughter, Frances Bean, due to a long period of unstable conduct. A court also granted Frances a restraining order against her mother. Courtney then took to Twitter to trash her daughter. I'm not going to lie. I've always been rooting for this kid. I hope she does great things with her life.

After weeks of speculation, it has been confirmed that Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal are no longer a couple. Reese is said to have dumped Jake over the phone. Am I the only one who thought they were doomed from the start? Whatever you do, Jake, don't go back to Kirsten Dunst.

The divorce of Jon and Kate Gosselin was finalized today. I hope to never talk about these two again.

A-Rod and Kate Hudson broke up. This is yet another relationship doomed from the start. Alex reportedly broke up with Kate because she 'brought the crazy'. She wanted to be the center of attention at Yankee games and pressured him to marry her.

Sarah Jessica Parker talked with David Letterman about the removal of her famous mole. She had it removed by her brother-in-law because she didn't care for it. She regretted it for a hot minute when a fan told her she'd gotten rid of her signature. SJP's signature was never her mole. It has and always will be her sense of style. Duh!

Elin Woods will be filing for divorce from Tiger Woods in the near future. She's shopping for a lawyer, spending Christmas with the kids in Sweden and flushed her multi-million dollar wedding ring down the toilet. I'd say she's done.

Lindsay Lohan recently visited India for a documentary she's filming on human trafficking. Lindsay proudly tweeted about saving 40 children while there. Sadly, this isn't true. The children were saved in a raid hours before Lindsay's plane landed.

Kourtney, the Kardashian no one cares about, gave birth to a baby boy earlier this week. She named him Mason Dash. If you're on the slow side, Dash is short for... KARDASHIAN!

Since it's almost Christmas, I thought I'd throw in something nice. Alec Baldwin donated a million big ones to NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. The money will fund scholarships for students in need. Alec wanted to give back to the school that made it possible for him to become a successful actor.

Justin Timberlake is also a giver. He raised over nine million dollars for the Shriners Hospital for Children in 2009 alone. This earns Justin the top spot on this year's list of celebrity charity earners.
