Because Quinn Miller is a genius and deserves to go viral…
Do you C what I C?
Everything’s coming up C’s at the Curtsingers!
Congratulations Hope and Dustin! Best wishes on your wedding, your honeymoon, your life together…
…and all those monogrammed gifts!
My nephew is getting married next week, which may explain why this item caught my eye.
Wedding rings that really leave a mark.
Colin Hart and his comedian wife Anna Ryan came up with the idea for the “I’m Married” rings last year for their own engagement. Now they’re selling on Cheeky.com — and they’re starting to get a lot of orders.
To get the best mark, you have to order the ring a size too small. The indentation only lasts about 15 minutes after you take the ring off, but Hart figures that’s long enough to dissuade that budding bar conversation.
Evil genius, that one.
And what an evil gift this would make for the nephew — nah, the dirty looks from my family would last way longer.
And it was really good. It was romantic and sweet and surprising funny. And then freaky and bloody and gory.
What’s not to love?
I didn’t reread the fourth book before seeing the film, so I can’t obsess over any details that director Bill Condon might have changed. Instead I will share with you what I learned during my initial viewing (because you know I will see it again)
If any other deep thoughts hit me at later viewings, you’ll know where to find them!
If you read The Egg with any regularity, you know I was in Vegas last weekend. I worked. I gambled. I came home.
Or so I thought.
Recent photos on Facebook have revealed that I not only stayed in the same hotel as a good friend and former boss –we worked together almost 20 years ago — but I unknowingly met and spoke to his then future daughter-in-law in the elevator.
What the wha??
She was all smiles, of course. I complimented her blonde updo and wished her all the best.
It was nice to think of weddings as I went off to work.
Little did I know — until I spied the photos today on Facebook — that I knew Britt’s future husband and in-laws. Had worked with her future father-in-law for three years. Could have scored an invite to the reception, at the very least.
It’s a small world, after all.
Brian Williams, you have a doppelganger.
And it only took me 14 years to notice.
This morning, while avoiding the news programs, I happened upon the 1997 Bette Midler-Dennis Farina farce That Old Feeling. It wasn’t that good the first time I saw it, but it’s still better than watching Today. So I let it run in the background while I ate breakfast and checked email.
A young James Denton plays the groom in the wedding that begins the film. I had kinda forgotten that detail. So today I did a serious double take — it looked like NBC News anchor Brian Williams on screen!
Now, I’ll admit, when you look at them side-by-side, the differences are more apparent.
James — or Jamie as he called himself at the time — has more even features and works it a bit harder in the smolder department. (He was on Desperate Housewives, after all; he has a lot of practice.)
But if I didn’t know who the two men were, and someone introduced them as brothers, I would totally believe it. Wouldn’t you?
No need to thank me when ‘Doppelganger Day’ rolls around on Facebook next year, guys. It was my pleasure.
Uh oh. Those ‘newly married’ friends of yours have already lasted an entire year! It’s time to buy an anniversary present — what to do?
No worries — it’s Flitch Day!
According to customs that have been in place since the 15th century, any couple who can prove to a jury of bachelors and maidens that they have lived together in ‘harmony and fidelity’ during the past year gets a flitch of bacon.
No more checking their registry at Target. No more worrying about colors or style of decor. Agonizing about sizes is a thing of the past.
Just pass that platter of bacon to the lucky bride and groom!
(William and Kate are going to be so excited…)
I love a theme. And apparently today’s is of the two-wheeled variety.
Everywhere I look online, I see bicycles.
Not kid’s bikes with training wheels. Or Saturday enthusiasts zooming by wearing spandex. Or even coverage of the Tour de France. No, we’re talking bicycles that are taking a different turn.
Exhibit A — Beer Bicycle
Exhibit B — Bicycle Seat Bench
Exhibit C — Bicycle Wedding Cake
Wow, I’m almost psyched enough to go out and ride!
I’ve said it before — people just love to judge.
At the recent royal wedding, Princess Beatrice became the focus of a virtual festival of judging. Did you per chance to see?
Her hat, an original creation by famed London milliner Phillip Treacy — who designed many toppers for the big day — was the object of scorn pretty much from the moment Beatrice stepped out of her car at Westminster Abbey.
A Facebook page even popped up called “Princess Beatrice’s ridiculous Royal hat,” which has netted over 144,000 fans — er, judgers — to date.
Well, Beatrice has taken all that bad press and turned it into a big payday for charity. She placed the much maligned headpiece up for auction on eBay, with the proceeds from the sale going to UNICEF and Children in Crisis.
The recent winning bid? $130,000.
Talk about turning a negative into a positive! Seems that elaborate hat was just pointing out Beatrice’s smarts.
Did ya hear the news?
“We’re not getting married.”
What a kill joy.
Actually, it was a joint decision. The couple isn’t going to tie the knot until marriage is legal for everyone, namely gay couples.
The two join a growing list of celebrity couples who have made similar ‘we’re waiting until gay couples can marry’ decrees. I believe the first was Charlize Theron and Stuart Townsend. But they broke up in 2010 after nine years of dating…so it kinda became a moot point.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have also declared that they will not get hitched until gay marriage is legal. It is a strong public show of support for the gay community from two very public personalities, so kudos to them.
But this tiny little cynical voice deep down inside of me wonders — is that the real story? Is gay marriage the only reason that these couples are choosing to stay single? Or is it just a very good excuse to have a longer engagement…and keep their options open a bit longer?
They know as well as we how long — or should I say short — marriages are amid the stifling scrutiny of the paparazzi. If adopting a popular cause that they truly believe in gives them a bit more breathing room before they take the leap…
Who can blame them?
