The Phillies are the NL East
champions. Yes. Yes, they are.
And I am ecstatic.
My boys beat Washington
last night, a pretty easy
feat, which means they can
"relax" during their next
two games and prep for
the big first game of the
World Series on Wednesday.
Last year they made the
World Series as well.
However, they were swept
out of in three quick games.
It was a sad and depressing
event for the Philadelphia fans.
This year we are all hoping
they can go.all.the.way.
Which I have nothing but
faith in them doing. Clearlyyy.
Lidge had his 41st save of
the season last night. 41!
Impressive stuff, Mr Brad Lidge.
And Moyer, the 45 year old Phillies
pitcher, pitched a great beginning
half of the game. Wahooo.
On Hollywood news:
Ryan Reynolds and
Scarlett Johansson got
married in Canada this weekend.
Mmmm. I'm still not very
keen on the idea of these
two as a couple. And now
a married couple. I really
love me some Ryan Reynolds,
and ScarJo is...mm...alright?
She's a major step up from Alanis...
but still. But I guess,
congrats to the happy pair!
I do hope they outlast the usual
celebrity marriage life, though.
Suri, one of my fave celeb
babies, and mama Katie Holmes
have been seen all over the
streets of Manhattan lately.
Now if I could only catch a
glimpse, and a hug, from this
fabulous duo...I'll be set! My
peepers are on high alert while
I'm perusing the mayhem in
the busy city of New York.
If Katelin finally got to meet Ryan...then
I think it's only fair that I get my chance to
meet Mom and Baby Cruise. Rightttt?
I sit here on this Sunday morning
with much anticipation for this
weeks Dancing With The Stars
episodes. I'm seriously LOVING it.
Any big Sunday plans, Bloggers?

Pshh. I need to step
my game up. I don't
really have an excuse, either.
Except for starting the
(Ugly Betty and Greys tonight!)
I just caught up on a few
missed episodes of
One Tree Hill and 90210.
Enthralled by both. (One
Tree Hill seriously hits me
every time. That little
Jamie is just the cutest!)
I still have Gossip Girl
I need to watch. Sheesh.
Television mayhem! But
I loveeee it. So no complaints.
UM! Has anyone been watching
Dancing With The Stars?
Lance Bass, of course, is so
good. Yeah. I'm impressed
with his MAD skills. But
expected nothing else
from the native N'Syncer.
But eh. As humorous and
entertaining as that Cloris is...
she needs to go. She is awful.
And if one more deserving
contestant leaves while her
rear-end is saved...I will
be simply livid, I tell ya!
I am quite pumped for the
return of Betty and Greys.
Really anticipating some good
stuff. Hoping ABC doesn't
disappoint. I'm sure a lot of
you bloggers are also getting
ready for a good night of TV
tonight. AMEN to that!
Speaking of you super bloggers...
I need to do some SERIOUS
catching up on all of your very
exciting lives that I so very much
enjoy reading about. And this
weekend sounds like the PERFECT
downtime to do just that. Curl up
with my laptop and some hard-core
blog reading. Sounds like the
most lovely lil' treat. And oh how
I can't wait. (I know you've all
been missing my comments, I'm sure.)
And I have certainly missed
what you've all been having
I also have some fun "games," as I
like to call them, to do. But in
the blog-world...they are known
as meme's. But pish posh to
This has been one very random
post of a lot of boring junk.
Sorry it isn't anything more
stunning. There is big stuff
to come...this weekend.
And oh. . .I am SO very much
loving on all this fall weather.

went to the Martina McBride
concert last night. My friend
had an extra ticket and needed
someone to go. Knowing that
I'll never pass down a good
show...especially a free one,
and that I am a HUGE country
fan...I got the invite-and was in.
For her one video, For These Times,
it has people on the streets of
New York City being asked to
write one wish they had for the
future on this big piece of
white paper. It's extremely
powerful...and I simply LOVE
it. So go on and watch. . .
Well at the concert-they had the
same premise going on. They were
asking people to write something
down on the huge sheet of paper
to be shown during the song on the
jumbo screen. And OF COURSE me
and Jonny get asked. Because...
um...why wouldn't we? We ALWAYS
get asked for these sort of things.
The cameras just adore us...for real.
I didn't know what to put though...
because I wanted it to be really
good...because it was going to
be up on the screen for all to see.
Ha. So since I was taking too long,
and they were wrapping up, and
really wanted me to write something...
the guy filming, this adorable Australian,
told me to write "Men to be smarter."
So I wrote it...and during the song...
sure enough...there I was up on the
screen. And man! Did the ladies
LOVE that one. I got the most
cheers. Haha. It was all rather exciting
and fun. So click on the video...and enjoy!

I want to ramble on
about. And boy am
I good at ramblinggg.
And! I have been tagged
by the lovely Miss
Auburn Kat...and I just
love a good tag every
once in awhile. But I'm
not doing any of that.
Nahhh. Instead. Because
of the chilly weather out
on the streets of New York
City, I've decided to talk about
my excitement towards the
Fall season approaching.
REALLY. I love it. So...here are
all of the yummy thoughts
running through my head...along
with my Fall wish list.
Uggs. Caramel Macchiato's from
Starbucks. Scarves. Pumpkins
on peoples porches. Hayrides.
Hocus Pocus being shown
on the Disney channel.
(even though I own it.) Haunted
movie marathons. The pretty
colors. Snuggling under blankets.
Warm, cozy sweatshirts and sweaters.
Pumpkin Pie. Halloween costumes.
Extreme candy aisles. Hot cider.
Scarecrows. Tall boots. Mittens.
Earmuffs. Jackets. The boys
cheering about football. Soups and
stews. Fireplaces. The brisk air.
The making of my Christmas list.
Hot Chocolate. The anticipation
of the first snowfall.

(It's an internship...but still!)
It's a "job." It's not
paid. Ugh...I know...but
I mean hey...it's the
building blocks...the little
steps...that will eventually
get me to where I want to
be. Righttt? Right!
I'm pretty ecstatic.
I loved the office-it's at
a magazine...oh la la.
I loved the woman who
interviewed me. I just
loved the entire thing.
Granted...I haven't actually
started yet...and the interview
process is easy...well-sort of easy.
Okay. I'm off to meet Kara
at work...but I'll be back
with bigger details!
But just wanted to jump
on here real quick and share
my good news!

up with my blog reading...
but I feel like I've been such
a failure. Pshh. But I've
been trying to stay on
top of it. And as soon as I'm
finished writing this...I'm
going to jump over to my
usual reads and leave lots
of yummy comments...because
it's how I do. Wahoo.
I have an interview tomorrow.
I'll save with who until afterwards...
but I will say that it's with a well
known magazine. So keep your
fingers crossed for me. I just want
to land something and move to
the city so badly. Minus the
fact that everything is so
expensive. But whatever...I'll
make it work. Because it's
my dream...my goal...
Last night I met Miss Kara
and two of her work buddies
down by where she works
for some grub and drinks.
It was a lovely time. A lovely
drunken time. At about 12:30
we decided it would be a good
idea to go sing some karaoke.
So karaoke it was. We jumped
in a cab and headed back up
to the Upper East to this little
joint where its karaoke every
single night. What a grand time it
was. Kara and I sang a plethora of
beautiful hits. Some Oasis...some
Joan Jett...some Kid Rock and
Sheryl Crow. We were such a hit!
Then some very drunk man kept
trying to get me to dance with him...
succeeding at one point against my
will. (Kara's friend wouldn't go along
with being my boyfriend...and pushed
me to go dance with the creeper.)
Later feeling bad and making up
for it by joining me on the dance
floor and keeping the man away
from me. (Well...for the time being.)
Before we knew it the time was
4am. Ridiculousness. We stumbled
back to her apartment and passed
out. And then she overslept
for work this morning...running out
the door last minute...only to come
home a few hours later after telling
her boss she wasn't feeling well.
(aka hungover like whoa)
The two of us ended up sleeping
the entire day away. Literally.
We slept until it was practically
dark outside. And boy was it
THEN...we read that Justin Timberlake
and Jessica Biel were spotted last night
like right down the street
from where we were singing up
a storm. (They were at his restaurant,
Southern Hospitality.) Pshh. According
to Perez they were complete

It's a mucky, ugly and very
messy day out there on the
streets of New York. And I
don't want to venture out
there. Luckily I don't have
to for another couple of hours.
(When I go pick up the little
girl I'm "babysitting" for
an hour or so.) Mmmhmm.
I can hear the rain ping panging
on Kara's window. ICK. I seriously
despise the rain. At least being
outside in it. Or driving in it.
So I'm sort of kind of dreading
moving around out there.
But I'll slap on some sneakers
and take my umbrella and hope
for the best.
(Even though I'm currently watching
Rachel Ray...and they keep scrolling
a FLOOD WARNING on the bottom
of the screen.) Just great.
Last night on The Hills...oh my
gosh. Seriously Spencer? Could
you be any more of a ridiculous
human being? Granted...he is
always good a laugh...
-Heidi: Have you seen my sister?
-Spencer: I might have seen your sister.
-Heidi: Did you say something to her?
-Spencer: I might have told her we wanted her to move out.
Haha. Oh goodness. He's
a mess of a person.
But on a more positive note.
I was glad that Lauren and Audrina
ended on a happy note. It's about
And um. I love Brody
and Doug. Love. It was so funny
how they kept laughing at the
fact that they were arrested.
I felt like that scene when
they came into the girls room
was the MOST REAL slash
unscripted part of
The Hills I've ever seen.
And can I date one of them?
Please. Mmm. They are just
such pretty, pretty faces!
And their full Heads of Hair.

visiting my lovely friend.
K.Kuligssss. It has been
glorious...minus the hard
rain when I got here Saturday
afternoon...and then throwing up
all around the West Village
yesterday. Oh good times.
My mission while here:
find a job. Can she do it,
folks? YES SHE CAN! But
I guess we shall see. I think
it's going to be a lot more
difficult than I plan...
but psh...that won't stop
me. Wishful, wishful thinking
ladies and gents.
It's a beautiful day on the
Upper East Side. I
was walking around for
quite some time...keeping
my eyes peered for a celeb
or two...but no such luck.
(see celeb sighting down below!)
There was a glorious breeze while walking,
but I eventually got hot. So after
walking up and down Lexington
Ave., I made my way to the grocery
store...cleaned a little...and now
here I sit. Applying to some
jobs and watching some TV.
(I'm oh so very cool like that.)
I have a babysitting gig lined up
for tomorrow afternoon-yay.
Make a little spending money.
Then tomorrow evening I'm going
to some Bloomingdales event
with miss K.Kuligsss and her
one roommate. I think that'll be
quite fabulous! Naturally.
As for the celeb sighting I
We woke up yesterday...and since I
had promised JD a day
in the West Village of stalking down
the famous people...we showered...and
were out the door. Me. K.Kuligsss and
JD. (Horsham buddies!) (JD came with
me Saturday morning into the
city for K's end of summer bash...and
is equally as ridiculous, if not
more, when it comes to celebrities,
as Kara and myself.) The kid should
seriously be a paparazzi. No joke.
So we we're walking all around...
its so hot...and mine and Kara's
feet are KILLING us...bad choice
in shoes. Finally we decide to sit
outside of Da Silvano. A popular
celebrity restaurant. (Haha.)
There just so happen to be
about five paparazzi sitting on benches
across from us. Which means that
there is someone inside. HOLLA.
So at one point two of the
men start riding away. So
JD comes up with a plan
that he'll follow them on bikes
and me and K will stay seated
in case any action goes on...and if
anything happens-to start snapping
away. So whatever. We agree to it...
and he runs off.
Next thing we know...the paps
jump up and start taking
pictures of some chick in
a red dress with straight brown
hair. Kara and I can only see
her back...we're laughing hysterically...
because we don't know what to do. Kara
is yelling at me to go get pictures
otherwise JD is going to be so mad.
She calls him to tell him something
is going on...and I run ahead to where the
paps are...but still...she woman in red won't
turn around...so I can't see anything...except
her long body from behind. Mmm.
I got a side peek at her...but no picture.
(I think it was Shannon Elizabeth.)
That's who she looked like from a
side view. (Ha) I go back to the bench...
as a failure...and Jonathan comes running
back...sweating...and madder than hell
that I didn't get any pictures. It was all
very humorous. And I still have
no clue who the mystery lady in
red is. I've been trying to find it
everywhere! But nothing. Ugh.
So now after that long and boring
update...I'm on my way. To gosh
knows what. . .
PS...how stinkin' amazing did
Britney look last night at the
VMA's? I am so proud of my
girl for taking home THREE
And Gossip Girl tonight...and
One Tree Hill.
So happy watching!

taking her idea and creating
So here are some fabulous items
that I wouldn't mind receiving

No. I don't have a birthday tree...

I know that I JUST talked about
being greedy and selfish and wants...
but I figured on my birthday...
I'm allowed to be a little
greedy and selfish and want.
