A lot of famous folk have been talking eating disorders lately.
Demi Lovato appeared on Katie Couric’s new talk show to discuss hers, which prompted Katie to spill the beans about her own bulimia. Lady Gaga used to have one, too. So did Stacey London of What Not to Wear.
It’s like eating disorders — or admitting to having had one — has become the fashionable thing to do.
Well, call me trendy — I have one, too!
I like peanut butter…a bit too much.
I like it for breakfast on toast. I like it for lunch on bread or crackers. I like it with chili (on the aforementioned crackers) for dinner. Or if there’s no chili about, I’m good with the peanut butter and crackers again.
And if there’s no bread or crackers, it’s pretty great right out of the spoon.
Some people might consider this an eating disorder. I think of it as dedication to a childhood friend who has proven himself again and again.
(But I’m not sure that is on trend right now.)

There’s an awards show on television tonight that I’m not gonna watch (and not just because I’m on an airplane headed east). I’m not even recording it.
The Grammy Awards. Yep — Not. Gonna. Do. It.
I’m sure there will be much spectacle. Lady GaGa and Adam Lambert are performing, so that’s kinda a given. But when you’ve only heard of about half of the musical groups — and have no clue what songs they currently sing or what awards they have been nominated to receive — well, you feel like one of those folks who hang out by the buffet table at a party.
I could blame it on circumstances. I used to be better informed when I had a car and actually listened to the radio. Then I moved to the Northeast and adopted the walking lifestyle.
“So, listen to music on your iPod, Carla.”
It’s a legitimate idea. But I hate headphones and ear buds — just can’t stand having anything jammed in or around my ears — so music as part of my commute has pretty much disappeared. And TV is my background noise of choice when I’m working on my laptop.
So this time, The Egg is depending on you — give me the skinny on what goes down at the Grammy’s pre-, during and post-show — complete with your more informed translation.
I may not like headphones, but I’d still like to hear an ear full.

Did you see the ‘big-eye’ contacts that Lady Gaga wore in her “Bad Romance” video?
I didn’t….which is no real shock. If a song hasn’t appeared in a movie or Broadway musical, I don’t know it.
My sister Lou told me about this one….and let’s face it — it’s an effect worthy of a movie, like most of Lady Gaga’s artifice. That big-eyed, Disney character look? As soon as I saw the contacts, I wanted a pair. So it’s no surprise that younger fans are out there, trying to find them in the stores.
You know who really benefits from this trend? People like Amanda Seyfried, the young actress and star of “Dear John,” “Letters to Juliet,” and “Big Love.”
She was born with anime eyes. They are practically on either side of her head…and HUGE. She has the Lady Gaga look built-in. No contacts required.
Some people have all the luck.
