Captain Grammar!

Just when you think watching "The Jersey Shore" can't get any worse or make you less intelligent...
...it proves you WRONG! There vs. their vs. they're. Come on MTV. You can do better!

Emmys Cliffs Notes

Instead of doing an in depth analysis of Emmys- I'm giving you cliffs notes. Really liked a LOT of dresses. Hated a few as well.

Best dressed and very overlooked: Lena Headey and Martha Plimpton!
Lena made that dress work for her. Could have been awful on the wrong person but it was beyond lovely on Ms. Headey.
And let's not forget Ms. Goonies. Color? Check. Bling? Yup. Surprisingly on best dressed list? Absolutely. I mean, come on, she made out with Mouth in the 80s.

Worst dressed: Julianna Margulies. Her show should be stripped of the word good in its title, that's how utterly BAD this lamp shade dress was. Beautiful woman. Love her, love her work, can't stand the dress. To be a fly on the wall when that dress was suggested and ultimately chosen. Oh boy...
Until the Globes!

Airplane Etiquette.

Have you ever had to use one of these on a flight?
No? Well you're lucky. I did some serious traveling last week for both work and pleasure and found myself in all 3 of the most populated cities in the US. And I had to use the above bag- because you can't get up from your seat unless you're at cruising altitude.

Came down with a little something (the jury is still out on whether it was a bug or a little food poisoning...) and it made for a miserable flight from NYC to Chicago. And a miserable Ingy for 2 days.

BUT all the travel connected me with my friends and lit the fire under my butt to make room in my all-too-busy schedule to make time to blog. No matter what. So...I'm back.

Note: that red bag above was not the bag that I used.

Ducktales, WOO-OO!

I was watching the VMAs last weekend and Jessie J was the "house band" (and I use that term with a little disdain, she shouldn't have been the house band- she should have been a featured performer).

BUT, as I was watching her and taking in her fierce hair and make up...
I couldn't help noticing that she remided me of Magica de Spell from Ducktales. Minus the beak.
Her next video should have her animated at Magica de Spell. You're welcome Jessie J. I'll take 10% off the top.

One of the Best Days of the YEAR!

Today is a great day (for more than one reason but I'll just be covering one of them right now). FOOTBALL is back in my life. I don't count preseason NFL. Nope. Not one bit. But kicking off college football at Camp Randall? Yes PLEASE!
I'll have you all know that I have on my Badger best today and will be RUNNING to the bar as soon as the school bell rings at the end of the day. Can't wait to cheer my boys on! And what an exciting quote to have stumbled upon yesterday: "Wisconsin will win the Big Ten. Do you realize the Badgers' offensive line this year will weigh about 1,600 pounds? That's more than the max payload of a 2008 Toyota Tundra. It's also about 80 pounds more than the Green Bay Packers' offensive line. That's a sixth grader more. They will cut down everything in the conference like wheat threshers. Welcome to the adult dinner table, Nebraska."

I'll leave you with an image from one of the most memorable Badger games in my lifetime which happened to be last October.
Gives me Badger Bumps.
