Hot time in the ol’ town

I HATE BLOW DRYING MY HAIR.

Blow-dry

I have a lot of it. And in the summer, it is a hot, time-consuming, uncomfortable, thankless job.  Plus, I have to flat iron it to get it really straight.

Yes, I splurge for blow-outs at the salon now and then, but tonight, it’s on me.

And I hate when it’s my turn.

Follow that dog

“Dog people are good people.”

I gotta admit…

In my dog-centric home, I consider my dog Rory’s dignity job one.

No Halloween costumes. No outfits that don’t serve a purpose (i.e., keeping out the cold or rain). And I have a zero tolerance policy for anyone or anything that disrespects my dog.

But Rory, if you were a girl, I might have to try this out (if only in the privacy of our own home).

Sunday night special

I just ordered this t-shirt at LookHuman.com

This website totally gets me.

Feet first

So, I’m putting on my socks this morning — newly washed yesterday, gotta love freshly laundered clothes — and when I unrolled them, they were inside out.

And I put them on that way.

inside out socksNow, I do this a lot.

Inside out socks do not bother me a bit.  The only time I might take the extra time to turn them right side out is when I am headed to the airport and know that my socks are going to be on display in a most public way.

Otherwise, I let them be.

Who’s with me?

Most wanted

If you too are eagerly awaiting the Muppets Most Wanted sequel (coming March 21), perhaps this will complete your ensemble for the premiere!

Full disclosure — I saw it online at Toys R Us…so you may have to lend it to your kid (or pet).

Oh Kermie…

A second glance

Thanks to Netflix, I have been re-watching the first seasons of Parenthood.

(I have it on good authority that my friend Tina is doing the same thing.)

While I am enjoying reliving the joys and perils of the Braverman family — and anxiously awaiting the introduction of Ray Romano’s character Hank in episodes to come — I had forgotten how much I love…

Amber’s glasses.

So big. So bold. So beautiful.

Still want ‘em, even though they make my nose hurt just looking at ‘em.

Ringer?

Who will win the Super Bowl — Seattle or Denver?

(You’re probably just impressed I got the teams correct.)

It’s true I don’t follow professional football that closely. But I was fascinated by a fact I learned today about the Super Bowl rings that are awarded to both teams in the big game.  That’s right –

BOTH TEAMS

So, let me try to put my finger on this…

All those retired players doing color commentary and interviews on TV with all those massive rings weighing down their hands.  We can no longer assume those are Super Bowl Champions?

I guess not.

Heck, they could just be wearing consolation bling.

Pancakes!

I helped my friend Stephanie at her store Stoopher & Boots today.

My favorite find?

Is that sweet or what?

Jagged edge

Kaley Cuoco, who plays Penny in The Big Bang Theory, got married on New Year’s Eve…and the paparazzi has snapped plenty of pics of her new wedding ring.

But I can’t stop looking at her nails.

What’s up with the witch-y points?

I’ve noticed several celebs opting for these ‘dagger nails’ instead of the traditional rounded or squared shapes.

I don’t understand the appeal.

What to do you think?
