    A Change is Coming

    What’s Jack up to? Jack is going batty because the guys are here cleaning our lawn and no matter how often they come he still likes to go nuts and show them how tough he is. Go, Jack Go!

    I’m feeling bankrupt of words today. Not a good thing for a writer. For some reason my ads were dropped from my blog. Bummer. Hmm… makes me wonder if I was a bit too political. That said I’m getting political again today. Oh well. If not now, when?

    The only thing on my mind is the election, well that’s not entirely true there is tons of other stuff in there, but this is taking up a huge chunk of mind space. Thank goodness there is only one more day to go.

    I can’t get over the whole long line thing in so many states. I’ve never experienced that here in NY so I really can’t wrap my head around it. I mean why should it be so hard when for some reason we’ve got buying lotto tickets down to a science? Crazy. I just hope folks continue to stick it out and in the end its on the up and up.
    And most importantly people vote with their heads and hearts and not judge by past prejudices. Change is good.

    What’s Jack up to? Jack us running around wishing he could find a way to get into the leftover Halloween candy. Keep trying Jack.

    Prime Time

    What’s Jack up to? He’s currently driving me batty by relentlessly squeaking the squeaker on his new toy. I have a feeling said toy may get “lost” real soon.

    Last week I received the most lovely gift from a blog friend of mine, Brown Girl Gumbo. Life:The America Journey of Barack Obama is a hardcover book filled with amazing photographs and wonderful words chronicling the Senator’s journey. I’m so proud to have it grace my coffee table.

    Thanks so much Brown Girl! If you want to check out one of the coolest fashion, celeb and beauty blogs ev-ah pop on over there. I know you’ll be a hooked as I am.

    Did any of you see the Barack-omercil last night? Bold move huh? Hey, it’s getting down to the wire. Time to pull out all the stops. Use what you got to get what you need. I love that saying.

    Here’s a little funny (sort of serious) as we get closer to get you thinking as if you’re not already.


    P.S. Did anybody see Top Design and Jeff Lewis from Flipping Out shoot the zingers? Ouch. I’d have loved to see Jonathan Adler belt him one. He is too much!


    Shout Out to my friend author Marley Gibson. You all know Mar! From Her Sorority Series and her up coming Ghost Huntress book. Well tonight she and her hubby Mike will be on the premiere episode of MY GHOST STORY on the Biography Channel at 10pm. Check Marley and Mike out. How cool is that!

    Political Babies

    What’s Jack up to? Right now Jack’s trying to charm the DD out of some popcorn. Not sure if the puppy dog eyes will work though. She’s pretty tough.

    I don’t have much to say on this hump day so I thought I’d share these funny pics that I found on The Huffington Post of Barack Obama with babies on the campaign trail.
    I’ve added my own captions. Please enjoy my sad attempt at humor.

    You know I don’t talk nearly as much a Joe Biden.

    Could you not do that? You don’t know what I’ve had for lunch.

    Before I agree to this picture, I want answers on your economic stimulus package.

    Sorry about the diaper, Senator, it’s been a long afternoon.

    Waa! You are soooo not my Daddy!

    Hey, you’ve got nice eyes.

    Hey, are you my Daddy? Cool!

    Can a brother get a hug? It’s been a tough year.

    Ba-rock the Vote!!

    The Beast is Loose and Kristen Casts on!

    What’s Jack up to? Jack’s sneaking off to the Dear Twins room to see what he can get into. With the messes they keep their rooms there’s lots of trouble to get into there. Oh, Jack.

    There’s a new hot spot on the web. Ex Vanity Fair editor Tina Brown has launched The Daily Beast an online magazine for all things political, entertainment and well just… current. Give it a look see here. I suspect it’s still evolving and will be evolving a lot in the weeks to come.

    The Internet is all abuzz with opinions for Ms. Brown. You know how those are and how the saying goes. We all have ’em blah, blah, blah. So far I like the bits I see. As for my opinion? Add a bit more fashion I’m there all the way! But so far I like what I see.

    This bring up the question: In this millisecond world are monthly mags a dying breed? I hope not. I just hope they can change with the times. Hmm… Change, the buzzword for our time I think.

    I’d like to give a shout out to my fellow writer and buddy, the Diva herself, Kristen. She’s opened up her own Etsy store: Blondissimo Gems and Jewelry. Don’t you love that name? Go and check it out here. Go Kristen. Way to Cast-on!

    Is Joe for Real?

    This is sticking at me so I have to talk about it?

    Do any of you think that Joe The Plumber was a plant sent out there to ask that question of Barack on the campaign trail? After seeing the tape I kinda do.

    And can someone tell me why newspapers were there to take his photo while he was watching the debate if he was so surprised to hear his named called so many times? Something doesn’t smell right to me. Also he doesn’t just look like your average plumber does he’s wayyyyy to perfect for words.

    Of course I could be totally wrong. I often am. Conspiracy theory moment over. Scroll down for Project runway fun!

    3 for 3!

    What’s Jack up to? Jack’s wandering around sleepily right now. The debate is over and he’s ready for me to hit the lights. Soon Jack soon.

    So the final debate is done. In my opinion it was another win for Barack, but reading this blog you’re not surprised by my opinion are you? I’m sure you have your own. Enjoy them. But hey, CNN agrees with me again too. Sweet. I thought McCain’s strategy was throw everything including the kitchen sink and see what sticks and unfortunately for him, nothing did. Another Obama win! What a cool cucumber he is.

    But Joe the Plumber? John McCain was so ready with that one, eh? I suspect he’ll be in an ad in about 5 minutes. Plumbers for Palin? Eek.

    Now Go Vote Why Don’t Ya!! Have fun which ever way you go.

    Which one? That one.

    What’s Jack up to? Jack’s full of energy this morning. Running from one side of the bed to the other, all ready for a brisk walk in the cold air. Oh, Jack it was a late night last night I’m tired.

    Did you watch the debate last night or are you over all this yet and you watched the New Real Housewives of Atlanta? I’m not going to hate. I DVR’d it and will be watching that un-beweavable hot mess asap. I saw the preview and those lades make the Real Housewives of New York look like paupers.

    But that’s not what I’m talking about today. Today is about last night. I went to sleep not knowing what I’d write about, but woke up still annoyed with one thought on my mind. That one. It really got under my skin when McCain had the nerve to say “That one” in reference to Barack Obama last night. In what context is that ok? In reference to a cup, a book, the fifth grandchild from the left, but not in reference to a Senator and candidate for President of the United States.

    As soon as it was out I was taken aback. His low talking, condescending, “My Friend” way just gets gets under my skin. And how do you assume that the person who asked you a question about the failed economy doesn’t know what Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac is? And you call the other guy the elitist? Pla-ease

    All in all, once again there was no knock out, but another quiet win for the Obama camp. According to the early polls. CNN tracks it at 54 Obama and 3o McCain and the rest saying “Uh what?”
    What say you about last night? You know what I say.
    Sidebar:Funniest laugh from this morning. Joe Biden was on The Today Show doing his job and giving a shout out for his candidate. At the end of the interview Ann Curry said that Sarah Palin was invited to come on but declined. No surprise there. I made a comment to the DH about Sarah hiding and she should be doing her job and commenting on the debate.

    Deadpan he says to me. “Maybe she didn’t watch.”
    Ha! Who knows? Real Housewives of Atlanta was on!

    Project Runway Tonight! Yippee.
