- Did Jimmy Carter snub Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton? He walked right up to President Bush Sr and Barbara Bush and then waltzed past Bill and Hill. That was a burn.
- Oh Jesus, what the fuck were Aretha Franklin and Jill Biden wearing? Who wears a big ass bow hat or fuck me boots to the presidential inauguration? Apparently they do.
- Dick Cheney did not “injure” his back “moving boxes.” That jackass hasn’t lifted anything besides his hand while being sworn in as VP…or that time he lifted a gun…at his friend who was wearing a bright orange vest…on a “hunting” trip…and shot him.
- Michelle Obama breathed new life into american couture. Her outfit was like candy and everyone is going to eat it up…or make knock offs.
- There were no incidents that day. That means no arrests, no pick pocketing, no crazy streaking incidents, just a peaceful day in DC.

Madonna reported to jury duty the day after her fabulous Oscar party. She was on time but was dismissed later on in the afternoon. Hmmm, she must be on to something. She partied until at least 4am and then showed up, I’m assuming, hung over and not looking like her usual gussied up self. I think I should apply this to my own jury duty dilemma. If I party until dawn, show up looking like a shlumpadinka and stinking like a bar, maybe I’ll be sent home.

I haven’t written anything about the writers’ strike because it hasn’t really affected me. Imagine my face when it was announced that the Golden Globes ceremony is cancelled. This awards ceremony, the Emmys and the Oscar are what I live for each year. I am a movie fanatic and a TV freak, so I was devastated. When the Oscar nominations are announced, I try to see all the movies on the list, and then I make my own betting card. I know, it’s a sickness that I can’t explain. I haven’t done this for three years because I was working so many hours and didn’t have time. Now that I have a job with normal hours, I can walk to the movie theater and get my film on. Do you know what’s even better? Free popcorn on Tuesday nights. But back to the lecture at hand; I think the studios should cut them a check as back pay and then give them 3% to 5% of royalties from internet, dvd, etc. from this point forward. Actors get a percentage of royalties from new media sales written into their contract. The same consideration should be given to writers, after all, it’s their ideas brought to fruition by the producers, actors, crew, etc. And hurry up with the negotiations. I don’t want my Oscars to bite the dust.

Pamela Anderson filed for divorce from Rick Solomon. Interesting. This is her third failed marriage. She is catching up to JLo. This makes me wonder about serial monogamists and if it’s worth it. Most of my exes and men I have dated jumped into a relationship right after they chucked me. I’m not exaggerating. That damn drummer (aka My Mr. Big) was married and had a kid a year after I stopped bludgeoning myself, err, I mean, I decided to no longer date this man who said “I have to go home” after I told him I loved him. We “dated” on and off for over 4 years. We were never in a relationship but I wasn’t allowed to see other people. He never really saw other people, he would just go out to dinner with other women and if he decided he wasn’t interested, then it wasn’t a dinner date. Yes, I was that stupid, naive and young. The frenchman had a girlfriend 2 months after he dumped me. I have always been single for long periods of time. Not weeks or months, I’m talking years. In fact, I never had a boyfriend until I was 24 years old. But I digress; I love when Paris Hilton says she wants to be single for a while and doesn’t have time for a relationship and then miraculously appears with some rich boy toy the next day. I mean, let’s face it, using work as an excuse not to have a relationship or to end a relationship is lame. Even the president of France has time for a new relationship, incidentally, 2 months after his divorce. Maybe I should commit too early and burn through men like Lindsay Lohan, but there’s that problem I have of actually meeting a guy that needs to be solved…

I have been cleaning my house slowly but surely for the last few days. Did you know I was a slob? Oh yeah, big time. I just have to mop, clean my tub, do yet more laundry, vacuum my bedroom, and go through the piles of mail I have stacked in the living room. It’s a process that I do every few weeks because I let things slide. Since I started the second job, these few weeks have grown longer and longer. Don’t worry, I will still have time to bake cookies! I have been conversing with Brian about the lack of time thing and the creativity thing. He doesn’t know how talented he is and he suffers from my fear of running out of ideas. Sometimes we all just need reassurance. In other news, I agree with Brooklyn Kid in that not everyone is getting more sex after the terrorist attacks.

There is total silence across America now. Even the big cheese at our company recommended gathering together under the flag in front of our building for a silent prayer. Money is being thrown everywhere for donations. The Red Cross has had more volunteers in the last few days than any time in the past few years. So what does it all mean? Where do we go from here? I have come to the conclusion that it starts from one person or a group of people. People want to hurt or kill any Arab or Pakistani they see. Unfortunately, this is part of the motivating factor in the events that led to that horrific Tuesday: hate. These are not the same extremists that hijacked a plane and changed history; they are Americans. They feel our pain. And to make matters worse for them, people from their homeland are re-enforcing the stereotype and building up the suspicions and hate. It is not their fault, and it pains me to see people hurt them or injure them just because they are Arabic. So start by doing just what Mayor Giuliani said: don’t take it out on anyone.
It is ironic that a group of people with such a large amount of hate for Americans and what we stand for, lived quietly and received training in the US for over year. Fascinating.
We bitch and moan about standing in the lines for check ins and having to empty our pockets for security. But I should say that I have seen security people not pay attention to packages going through the x-ray machine. I know they get paid next to nothing per hour. They need training. I see nothing wrong with armed guards in the airport. I see nothing wrong with security people searching my luggage and looking at my underwear. If it saves lives, so be it.
