Painting Update

It's DONE! (well, almost... just a few touch ups...), but I'm very proud of myself for completing it on my own (even the detail work). And my one chocolate brown wall? LOVE IT. It's amazing what a fresh coat of paint will do... to a room, and to life...

(And for anyone interested, the primary paint color is a tan-ish color... it looks white, but it's really tan... Ralph Lauren "Greenwich" to be exact).

This Guy is the Funniest

It's long, but oh so worth it.

Emmy's Part Deux

So, the Emmy's were pretty disappointing (even though I watched the whole thing), with a few choice exceptions, like these guys (it's long, but hold out for the end...).


Since Sister Dear hasn't updated her site in nearly 6 weeks (ha! am I allowed to complain given that my own blogging is so sporadic? Give an inch, take a mile...), I thought I'd share my favorite Nea news bites:

1) She says "HI MAH-KEY!!" (when prompted to say "Hi [to] Aunty Mikie")

2) She now enthuses "I love you

3) She's mama's little helper: at the ripe old age of 18 months, she helps her mom at work by arranging flowers (putting rose buds in individual vases) and bringing candles from across the room (genius, I tell you!)

4) When she sees a plane, she points and shouts, "DADDY!!" And when asked "Who drives a plane?" she answers, "A DADDY!!" (Nea's Daddy is a pilot)

Can it get any sweeter than that?

Shoot Me Now

Okay, so I know I haven't blogged in the longest time... and this isn't the most opportune time to blog about this... but if I must, I must. Everyone who knows me knows that I love everything Hollywood... love the gossip rags, love t.v., love movies. I chalk it up to growing up in the heart of La-La-Land and having experiences like Camp Hollywoodland and Mani's Bakery (where all the stars hang out, of course. Come on-- where but LA would a gourmet sugar free bakery and organic espresso bar not only exist, but thrive?-- and no, haters; I didn't just eat there, I worked there). In any case, we're only 90 minutes into the annual Emmy Awards, and I started looking at my watch 45 minutes ago... and this sucker isn't over until 10 cst. WTF?! It's sooooo boring. Is it Seacrest? Whatever it is, I'm almost tempted to change the channel. Almost...

Travel. Work. Sleep? Oh My.

  • Travel: 4 cities in as many weeks.
  • Work: 80 hour, 7 day weeks.
  • Sleep: 12 hours total in last three days.

Exhaustion and utter lack of recognition? Priceless.
