Hello, Ladies and Gentlemen,
This week’s post was delayed because I wanted to allow for the full week after Sandy/Halloween tweets to come in. Half our country was celebrating Halloween, which seemed at odds with everything going on for our East Coasters – our hearts go out to everyone affected by the hurricane.
Without further ado, these tweets made the cut for me:
Decided to post this one first because I’d like to get on a soapbox for a second: I can empathize with how difficult it is to be considered a role model when, as a celebrity, you only intended to be an entertainer- is it unfair for us to ask you to be a little more responsible than we are because dumbass stans are modeling themselves after your choices? Is this 100% unfair, yes. However, woman, are you stupid!? I know I like my spirits, and I know I’ve done my share of other things back in the day, but zero impressionable youths are looking up to me! Maybe be a little more apologetic, and stop hanging about with that misogynistic asshole while you’re at it, okay, hun? Thanks.
Off my soapbox, can someone tell me how I can persuade Mindy Kaling to be my best friend? Also, this serves as a reminder that I seriously need to watch Friday Night Lights, it’s one of those shows that I missed out on and I hate myself everyday for it.
Am I the only one that follows Michelle Betts? She was on the first season of Tough Love: Miami, I loved her because she was a down-to-Earth kind of girl, sweet, and if you follow her on the Twitter she gives out tons of fitness tips (she’s a personal trainer, in real life). Anyway, I’d completely forgotten Breaking Dawn was coming out this month! Did the Robsten cheating scandal Eclipse (see what I did there?) its release, or has it been totally over-shadowed by the garbage that is 50 Shades of
Well, this is awkward . . . but, uhhh, I guess someone should break it down for Kate Mara . . . darling? They are saying your face is wonky.
Ohhhmygoodness, aside from the fact that I am forever mad that homeboy’s name is IronE (pronounced irony) Singleton, he was NOT exaggerating at the amazingness that was last night’s episode of The Walking Dead! If you haven’t read the comics then you didn’t anticipate so much happening in one episode. Great acting from Singleton, and Andrew Lincoln’s Rick was flawless (who continues to do ‘things‘). Read the DiC recap!
I guess I need to dust off my Follow me to America VHS language acquisition series, because I have no clue what the hell a ‘madrilena‘ is.
No clue what he’s on about now, Maher probably mocked Trump’s stupid 5 million proposition to President Obama, and now he’s probably flipping his wig over it. It’s comical coming that Donald Trump, who is an amazing idiot, goes around picking fights with everyone for attention – especially when his entire public persona reads like a long-running mid-life crisis stunt.
I still don’t know what a Cody Simpson (his Twitter background is of him holding a guitar, so I assume he’s a musician) is, but I’m intrigued to know why he promised his fans to post a ‘Guys with Iphones‘ type of picture.
In tweets related to Hurricane Sandy:
Is this not the coolest thing for an athlete to do? Wish more acts of kindness like this would happen nationwide! Four for you, Dwayne Wade-Coco, you go, Wade-Coco!
Did you all know that some of the medical staff of NYU medical center ran down nine flights of stairs in darkness carrying patients from the NICU, while also helping to manually work the machines that breathe for the patients that were on respirators? Bravery at its finest.
Too soon, Caroline Rhea. I’m all for finding some laughter in times of crisis, but it should be handled with more respect . . . or, at least, y’know: be funny. Saturday Night Live flamed on Bloomberg and Christie brilliantly without being worthy of side-eye. At least she didn’t pull a Lindsay Lohan and call it #HurricaneSassy, while asking us to just pray it away.
While I kept watch of news stories and twitter accounts for information on how the East Coast was doing during Sandy . . . the comic relief came from this parody account of Mayor Bloomberg. His Spanish alter-ego, Miguel Bloombito was flawfree, I had so many of his tweets retweeted and favorited, I was almost choking laughing from his updates. Rhea should take note, this is Sandy joking done right.
While the ING maintained that the marathon could have gone on without taking away from the city’s recovery, I agree that the best was for the marathon to be cancelled, it’s a bit sad that all the efforts put forth by the runner’s will have to wait until next year- but at least it’s more time for training! Also, it was another amazing opportunity for generosity in that a lot of the participants donated their hotel rooms to displaced individuals.
Now for some Halloween posts!
Two things bother me about this, 1) in general, I dislike couples’ costumes, and 2) I dislike Paris Hilton. Ughhh, the costumes are great, and she looks cute here. I hate myself.
The other Paris, as in, Paris Jackson, is adorable. Her Adventure Time costume as Marceline the Vampire Queen was nicely done.
Best-Costume-Ever. If you don’t like A Christmas Story, or haven’t seen it, then I don’t know what your childhood was- and I don’t know that we can be friends. Seriously, he wins.
My favorite costumes are always of things that aren’t popular that year (hi, everyone who dressed as Katniss Everdeen or an Avenger), nerd things, or ones that make you nostalgic . . . I am in love with Naya Rivera for being the Roadrunner! beep beep!
Unlike Paris Hilton, here’s someone I dislike immensely making it easy for me to continue disliking her. Miley Cyrus, must you duckface in EVERY single picture? Have you no friends to tell you what a complete twat you look like, does Liam not care that you look like a fool? Also, if you’re quoting a Nicki Minaj song while dressed as her: pick a different song to quote, you stupid, Stupid Hoe.
My dislike of couples’ costumes doesn’t count for family costumes, I love those. My uterus jumps at adorableness like this, not as much as it flailed at the Harris-Burtka family costume, but it jumped.
Again, couples costumes need not apply, but, Ashley Benson gets a pass because theirs is not a sexified version of Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum. I love Halloween so much, I would lose my shit if I saw a complete set of characters from anything – I would have loved for these two to be at the same party as Paris’ Alice.
Many other celebs were did their over-the-top thing, I won’t post Kim Kardashian’s mermaid costume picture because it encompasses everything I hate: you whored-up an already sexy costume idea (read: over-kill), and it’s a couples’ costume, and you didn’t even look good in it (if you’re going to pay over two-thousand dollars for a wig, make sure it’s worth it- read: it wasn’t).
That’s it for this week, folks! Hope all our East-Coasters recover quickly, and ask everyone that can pay an act of kindness forward to do so!
