When we were young, my sister and I spent many a fun-filled afternoon playing “camping” with our Barbie dolls — and our brother’s GI Joe action figures — in our family’s formal living room.
(Other than Christmas, it was the best use of that room.)
The green carpet was obviously the grassy forest floor. We used Kleenex as sleeping bags. And Dr. Seuss books tilted open were the perfect tents. Plus, GI Joe had a jeep, so there were lots of four wheelin’ and other shenanigans.
Those were simpler times. Barbie wanted simpler things.

On rare occasions, I have had the pleasure of having a professional artist do my makeup.
Each asked my preferences before they began– colors, eyes, lips, etc. For example, I often said I liked a ‘strong eye.’
Thank goodness they never interpreted that to mean this —

I love Bill Hader and the characters he played on Saturday Night Live.
Stefan is legendary.
But Hader hosting SNL three weeks into the new season? He only left last spring. That will make two episodes without him before his triumphant return.
Can you say premature celebration?
As a wise friend told me once, give people a chance to miss you.
(Incidentally, I have taken this advice about as well as Bill.)

As Hollywood couples go, Kristen Bell and Dax Shephard are the coolest.
Both are really funny on-screen, and if you follow them on Twitter, you get a feeling they crack each up other at home as well.
‘Cause they don’t take themselves too seriously. Appear to live fairly simply. Love their daughter and their dogs.
Then they go and make this commercial —
They’re not in the Apple cult!
I love them so much right now.

Rory and I were walking to Central Park this morning when we encountered this construction site on the ’30 Rock Block’ (where they used to shoot the exterior of Tina Fey’s apartment).
The hand-lettered sign reads
Is this a thing?
Even with the additional clue of the Con
Ed truck, I don’t know what that means.
Sorry…too much Breaking Bad.
