Little Tinseltown Tuesday/Wednesday

Once again, we are having the Tinseltown news on Wednesday. It is tiny today because I haven't had a chance to dig into the dirt since I was off work yesterday.

Congratulations to Brooke Burke for winning Dancing with the Stars Season 7! A girl finally won again! :)

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt say they eloped on November 20th at a chapel in Mexico. People are saying this is a sham and that they are just wanting publicity. What do you think? Sham or Wedded Bliss?

Only other news I have is that Amy Winehouse is back in the hospital following a reaction to medication. Surpise, Surprise!
Hope everyone has a GREAT Thanksgiving and weekend!
Please give me your address so I can send you a Christmas cards!! We are one big family here!

We are moved and VERY tired. My feet hurt so bad lastnight, I soaked in my gigantor tub and went to bed. We are going to have to move one of the kids' bed though, because with they way they are right now, they can see each other and talked to each other for like an hour lastnight! haha The drive to work wasn't bad, but I guess I have gotten used to the distance since I have been going up there nearly everyday after work the past few weeks. So far, the only things that I am going to have to call about are that the outlets in our bathroom don't work and the vents in our bedroom don't put out very well. We had a storage building issue. Several pieces of our furniture were covered in mold and several boxes were damaged on the bottom. Apparently some leak occurred. Of course the box with the worst damage on the bottom was the box that had my wedding dress in it. My wedding dress was in a hanging bag on the bottom of that box. I haven't braved it and looked at it yet, because I'm not ready to know what kind of damage has been done to it. Too tired. I'm going to complain to them and the guy that owns the place is a friend of mine from Hermitage. Don't want to make him mad, but I feel I need to say my piece so that maybe he can do something about it before he rents it again.

Been thinking it for a while. Especially after seeing this picture from the LA premiere:

So, I will give you a crisp $100 bill if these two aren't dating (for now anyway). Read Rob's interview here.

Tinseltown Tuesday/Wednesday

I decided to bring back Tinseltown Tuesday this week and got so busy that it will have to be Tinseltown Wednesday! haha

I know everyone (mostly everyone) is stoked about the Twilight movie coming out! I can't wait! It premiered this past weekend in LA and I have to say that although James is a bad guy, he is smokin' hot! He played on The O.C. back in the day and was a drug dealer and eventual boyfriend for Marissa. So cute!

Cody Linley was voted off of Dancing with the Stars lastnight. I'm bummed. I really wanted it to be him and Brooke Burke for the final two. He's such a cutie patootie!

Paris Hilton and Benji Madden? Still an item? She was spotted this past weekend in Miami at a club and talking to her ex, Niarchos Stavros. (awful name!) Benji may have a gagillion tattoos, but he is WAY cuter than the Nacho guy! Jennifer Aniston confirmed to Oprah that she is in fact dating John Mayer again and no, she isn't pregnant.

Bill Murray is apparently going through a mid-life crisis. He is dating 27 year old, Miss USA 2008. He's 58. Can ya say ewwww!

Hugh Jackman has been named People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive for this year. Don't get it, he is not in the least bit cute to me. Everytime I look at him, all I can see is Wolverine with those gigantor sideburns!

For Survivor fans, this season's Ace Gordon was arrested Sunday morning in Naples, Florida, for disorderly intoxication, obstruction of an officer and resisting arrest without violence. He kept telling them how famous he was and they shouldn't treat him in "that manner". Famous, WHAT? He is a reject off of a reality show and he had a smart mouth on the show and wasn't a fan fave, I can assure you. haha

Joaquin Phoenix, Angelina Jolie and now Nicole Kidman are all saying they are retiring from acting. Yeah right.

Britney says her life feels like jail, but that even in jail you know you are going to get out eventually. She is tired of her dad's conservatorship. Her documentary, "For the Record" will air on Mtv on November 30th. It tracks a three month period of her life. I, for one, will be watching it. As much of a train wreck as she has been, I still like her. :)

Last, but not least, Kristy had not heard of the preggo man/woman, so this is for her. She/he (thomas is her name now) was a beautiful Hawaiian girl who decided that she wanted to be a dude. She had her breasts cut off and started taking hormone treatments. She met a chick, married her (since for some reason, she is legally a dude) and they decided to have a baby. She/he's wife had a hysterectomy so it was up to her/him to have the baby since she still had her female organs. His/her wife got a sperm donor and artificially inseminated him/her at home. 9 months later, girl. Now, he/she is preggo again. She/he is not the only man/woman to get pregnant it is just she/he is the only one to publicize about it. I hope this is what they wanted and I know they are going to get tired of it eventually, all the attention i mean. It is their (thomas and his/her wife) fault that it is as crazy at is, as they could have kept it a secret. I really don't see the big deal about it, because she/he is not technically a man, she/he was born and woman and has a uterus and what not, therefore just say you are a lesbian and go on about your business. Anywho, not trying to offend never know if you say something on here if someone is going to get offended.



Have a good week!

C & L STILL has not done a dad gum thing!!! I called them yesterday as they were suppose to do our electricity this week and now they are saying it will be next Wednesday! I so wish there was another company to go with, they would be so fired! We put our order in on October 28th! They said it would not be more than 2 weeks. They guy that I talked to said that he just received the order on his desk yesterday morning. WHAT? I called the "house" place and asked if the finishers could go ahead and come and just use a generator? He is to call me Monday and said that they will go ahead and come next week with the generator and maybe the electricity will get turned on while they are there, but at least they can get started. I really, really want to be in my house by Thanksgiving. Mainly because I am off for four days counting the weekend and that way we will have a couple of weeks to get settled and decorated for Christmas and it is so important to me that my mom gets to come up and stay with us for our yearly Christmas visit. I really need to work on my patience. I know it seems to everyone that all I have done is gripe about this house thing, but there have been happy moments too! I can only take so much and then I explode and this blog has been my major venting place! So bare with me. Oh and did you guys hear that the man/woman is prego again? I've thought about bringing Tinseltown Tuesday back...thoughts?

I don't know if anyone else watched this but me, but Lipstick Jungle that comes on NBC has been cancelled. WHAT?? This show was really good and I don't understand why the ratings would not have been very good? It originally came on on Tuesday nights and recently they switched it to Friday for some reason. There are still 5 episodes left that have been taped, but they don't know if they are going to air them or not. This show was based off another book series by Candace Bushnell, the chick that did Sex and the City, which I also LOVED and they are making another movie of, yay! Did anyone besides me watch this show?

Still Nothing

This weekend and came and went and still nothing on the house. All we are waiting on now is C & L. I swear, my patience are growing thinner and thinner everyday. I called earlier today to ask when they thought they would be over there. Even after they are done, we still have to have an electrician friend of ours set the meter loop and hook the power up to the house. I worry that by the time they get this done, the finishers will not be able to come after Thanksgiving as that is week after next. I'm getting to the point, for the first time, that I wish we would have just stayed where we were at. If we were building a house, I don't think I would regret it at all because it would all be worth it. This house, to me, isn't worth all this trouble and waiting because it is not what I really wanted.

Anyway, I attempted to take a picture of this kids this weekend. This is what we ended up with:

I have never done the picture card thing, but since all my bagillion Christmas Cards are packed up and not going to be found by Christmas, I opted to do that for this year. Chris' parents both killed 9 point deer this weekend. I do not do the whole deer hunting thing so I went to Lowe's and purchased some more stuff for the house. Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Well, much to my amazement, yesterday when I went to my house to see if the guy ever showed up....he had shown up alright! I had not heard anything from him all day and I really felt like he had blown me off again...boy, was I wrong!! He not only had my water line ran, but had the water office already out there to inspect and had the meter put in the box, the water on AND my septic tank put in!!! WOW!! I guess it pays to get a little crappy on the phone, in a nice voice of course! I was so dreading having to start over, to find someone new to do all of that. Now, we have another issue with C & L. They never could find the man who owns the land across the road, so they came up with another plan and had stakes in the yard where they were going to put the poles and what not. They were planning on coming soon to do that. Well, the water guy removed some of the stakes and put the septic tank fill lines where they were sitting. I called and reported it, we'll see how that goes now. Pray for us!
This is completely off the above subject, but a friend gave me a copy of this quote yesterday as I am having a hard time finding a church around here that I want to go to and had a bad experience at a particular church after my sister in law passed away...I thought I would share because it is so true:
"People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It never was between you and them anyway." ~ Mother Teresa

I have nothing exciting to post...just want to let everyone know that this house crap is getting worse before it gets better, but isn't that how it always goes? The finishers can't come to our house until we have water and electricity ( i know i'm probably repeating myself)...anywho, the electricity was going to be turned on for sure yesterday or today...well, they need to put a guidewire on a pole in the man across the road's field. Well, they have to get his permission to do that (understandably) but the problem is that no one can get ahold of him. Second...the guy installing our water line and septic tank said that he would be there last Friday or Saturday. Never showed up. When I called on Saturday to see what the deal was, he said he had been busy doing something in Morrilton and that Monday he would be in West Helena and would be here on either Tuesday or Wednesday. I go ahead and call this morning with the excuse of asking how much it would be for him to add a faucet in the front and back of the house (for water hoses) and asked if he was still planning on being there tomorrow. "Well, no...I'm really busy and just don't" and then I say, "Well, we are only waiting on you. We can't do anything else until we have the water at least." He says, "Well, hmmm....umm..." I say, "We were trying to get in there by Thanksgiving, but outlook is not looking good, huh?" He then says, "Well, I'll try to be there tomorrow with the faucets." WHAT? I call my hubby and tell him that if he hee haws me around this time, he is fired. I don't care what the hubby thinks, there are others to do the jobs and would have probably already started anyway. I'm planning on paying this dude $3900 for all of this and he can't make the time for me? Hello! I understand the guy has other jobs, but don't tell me you are going to be there and keep putting me off. Comments? Am I overreacting or justifiably acting so ill my face is red with the whole high blood pressure thing? haha
oh and check this out Bachelor/Bachelorette fans:
Chris Harrison opened up Monday about the recent split of the latest "Bachelorette" DeAnna Pappas and her former fiancé, Jesse Csincsak.
The host of "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" told 104.3 MY fm's Valentine in the Morning: "DeAnna went to Breckenridge last week and broke up with Jesse. He was stunned. I've talked to Jesse several times today, and he did not see it coming."
Harrison claims that Pappas leaked the break-up to the press early: "They also agreed that this was not gonna get out to the public until Thursday, they were going to release a joint statement and try and keep this above board, and she went out on her own, leaked it, and so he's just feeling a little beat up right now."
"He really truly loved DeAnna," Harrison says. "He was so happy and he's like, 'Let's just go, let's go to Breckenridge, let's go to Atlanta, let's get the heck out of here, and let's live our lives. Let's just get to know each other and hang out.'"
But Harrison says that Pappas has big Hollywood dreams. He says Pappas has been getting "bad advice" from people like "paparazzi guys, and other people that she's been running into that have filled her head with, you know, these dreams that she's going to come to Hollywood and make it big and do all this stuff. And I think her head's getting a little bigger than it should and I think that's led to this as well."
