Why did you put that on Tinder? Why are you even on Tinder?!

I blame Eliza for inspiring me to get on Tinder (not really). But it’s my own fault for sticking with it. I find the app so thoroughly entertaining.

OK, most of the time I don’t mean entertaining but horrifying (NSFW), but you get the idea.

[Un]happy Monday

Why unhappy? There’s no Bachelorette airing tonight. Boo hoo. Some of my Twitter friends are surely rejoicing, TBH.

[In all seriousness, I'm eager to watch Diane Sawyer interview Hillary Clinton.]

One thing I won’t miss: Bachelorette Andi saying “STOP.” In case you haven’t noticed, Andi says this word a lot.

Last week’s episode with Eric’s departure was rough. It’s hard not to think “what if?” about his premature exit and later, untimely death.

In happier news, Bachelor in Paradise is in production and I’m excited to see more of a particular yet-to-be-announced cast member. More on that soon…

 

The end of the Letterman era. Who’s next?

Letterman is retiring. I think it’s for the best. He used to be so lively and fun.

Now? Cranky, sometimes mean.

On one hand, I hope women are in the mix for the new host of Late Night.

Very much so.

On the other, it’s a very specific career path. If you’re good at it, you hold the post for the rest of your active career. If you’re bad – rather, if ratings aren’t stellar – you get replaced and your image takes a hit.

Why would someone like the awesome Tina Fey set herself up for that while also potentially limiting her ability to work on other projects like television show development and films and best-selling books?

Johnny Carson occasionally had guest hosts cover for him. Reruns are the worst. Who wants to sit through, say, Russell Crowe promoting Noah months later?

Is it time for the talk show model to change? If so, how?

Update: Ellen would be perfect for this. 

I want Botox

Just a little.

Right between my eyebrows.

Crop

I generally feel fine about how I’m aging. But that crease near the start of my left eyebrow has been bugging me recently.

One thing holding me back? Spending money frivolously. Kenya is $$$$.

Have you tried Botox? Good experience/bad experience?

Obviously these are my PRE Brazilian Blowout pics.

No class (Part 1)

I have no class.

No fitness class, that is.

I have them in that I belong to a gym. I just skip them.

Why? I think it started as a rebellion against the years – fourteen years – rigorous, time-consuming dance study I did.

By high school, I averaged six classes per week, spread over the course of three days. Mostly ballet including pointe but also jazz, tap and helping with younger kids’ classes. In the month leading up to a performance, the time commitment would typically double.

I bought ‘em: Bussola Trapani boots

I got these boots at DNA in Williamsburg. My mother will hate them.

What should I wear with them?

I almost bought these Steve Madden boots before spotting the Bussolas. The Steve Madden pair was a little cheaper, but far less comfortable. Plus I preferred the extra buckles.

What will you be buying for fall?
