Summer of Suck 2.0 – Part Eleven: What’s in My Bag

You know how US Weekly does a feature called “What’s in Your Bag?” where celebrities show all of the odds and ends floating around their designer bags?

This is something like that except not at all like that. Because the bag in question is the bag I’m taking to the hospital. For starters, it’s a beat-up, well-traveled half-suitcase (it looks like this).

Instead of Nia Long‘s Dior mascara, I will be packing six or seven of my most modest pairs of underpants to deal with never-closed hospital gowns.

Five creepy things Chris Soules said that weren’t actually creepy

If you have been watching The Bachelor this season – which has been fantastic, by the way – you know Chris has a funny way with words. His blog for People Magazine only serves to supplement the broadcast show, and in writing.

Twitter Spotlight: Jennifer Peros

Would it be weird for me to say that I want to be Jen Peros when I grow up? Given that I’m older than her, yeah probably. But still!

Jen is a reporter for US Weekly. Yes, she makes a living investigating celebrity news, interviewing stars and going on television to share the latest scoops. Oh, and she met my preteen crush Rick Springfield.


Jealous? I think I am.

OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest

@JenPeros: A tall, drink of handsome water who can laugh at everything with me, and at me sometimes, too. 

OneChicklette: Your chief characteristic Continue reading

Twitter Spotlight: Mike Kelton

Ever since I started following comedian/writer/host/prettyface Mike Kelton on Twitter, I find myself saying “funny bugger” approximately once per day.

The tweet that really made me want to know him better, though, was this one:

I expect you love him too now so here’s your chance to get to know him better.

OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest

@MikeKelton: lack of interest in me.

OneChicklette: Your chief characteristic (one word)

@MikeKelton: confusion.

OneChicklette: What you appreciate most in your friends

@MikeKelton: honesty and picking up the tab.

Very pretty

OneChicklette: Your idea of happiness

@MikeKelton: being super famous for no real reason. So, the Kardashians.

OneChicklette: Your idea of misery

@MikeKelton: Being a Kardashian.

OneChicklette: Your favorite fictional character

@MikeKelton: Sarah Palin.

OneChicklette: Your favorite thing to eat, and also to drink

@MikeKelton: Bagels to drink. Diet Coke to eat.

OneChicklette: Five tangible things you can’t live without

@MikeKelton: My fucking phone. My hair paste (gross, kill me now). My blankie (yeah). The Bible…themed case for my sex toys. My Nike fleece running tights with the coolest zippers and penis pouch which I don’t even NEED.

pretty shirtless

@OneChicklette: How many days do you think you would you go without speaking a single word, if you were being paid $100,000 a day for every consecutive day you didn’t speak? (this question came via @BrianSpaeth)

@MikeKelton: The rest of my life thanks to Twitter.

@OneChicklette: Who do you know via social media that you’re dying to meet in real life? (this question came via @floridagirlindc)

@MikeKelton: @AngiesRightLeg or @andylassner

OneChicklette: A question I should ask the next participant

@MikeKelton: What is your most under appreciated tweet?

OneChicklette: Random shout out (can be a person, a web site, a favorite product or brand…anything)

@MikeKelton: @zachcherry is the funniest person on twitter…but for now most girls in middle school have more followers than him which pisses me off. Follow him.

Steakhouse discrimination #mockhorror

I’m grateful to Eva Longoria (no Parker) for pointing out that traditional steakhouses have been doing me a disservice. I had no idea that I was eating sexist meat.

To correct that, Ms. Longoria is opening a women-friendly steakhouse in that feminist hub of Las Vegas. I learned this via US Weekly.

What does it all mean? Will my steak arrived wrapped in a designer bow? With a side of sexy booties? I’m so confused.

As much as I love pink, I like my meat red and I have no interest in a 2 oz steak with a side of undressed lettuce. Perhaps SHe won’t be for Me.

Why does my heart feel so bad?

With apologies to Moby.

This happened. Their chemistry was palpable.

And this happened. It was fun to question what it meant, if anything. I mean, they’re not people we actually know.

Time passed and then this happened. We didn’t know them personally, of course, but it was fun to see two young, gorgeous people in love.

Sadly this also happened leading to a statement being released that said this:

“I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected.  This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry.”

I feel creepy for caring, but yeah…I do.
