Thin Tuesday

First things first ... it's Fat Tuesday, y'all! It's the last day of Mardi Gras and the last day to sin like crazy before the onset of Ash Wednesday:

I hope y'all have a great day ... party up ... do it big ... sin like there's no tomorrow!!!!!

Britney Spears and Co. are in New Orleans for the Mardi Gras festivities and it appears that she brought along all the fake hair she could carry:

Let me just say that I think it's cool that Britney hauled her cookies all the way to her home state to help out with this year's festivities. She looks a'ight ... her cohorts, on the other hand, well, it's plain to see they felt there was no need to dress up. Kevin did lose the corn rows (tho, the rat tail is back) and Lynn ... bless her ... I think she's just given up entirely. Party on, Spederline! [Source]

Elsewhere in the Big Easy, celebrities like Anderson Cooper and Michael Keaton have come to town to participate in the various Mardi Gras parades and festivities ...

... while celebs like Josh Duhamel (who teamed up with Bacardi) lent their fame to raising money for New Orleans. Josh was on hand to participate in Bacardi's attempt to create The World's Longest String of Mardi Gras Beads to raise funds for the Rebirth of New Orleans Tourism Fund. New Orleans (well, Louisiana for that matter) has a long way to go still in the rebuilding effort but it's nice to see that the spirit of Mardi Gras, which is the spirit of the city, is still holding strong even if the crowds are thinner this year. Slowly but surely, things will get back to normal. [Source, Source]

Woot! 24 was so great last night ... it felt good to just get lost in that TV show ... let me just say up front that I TOTALLY knew that Jack Bauer was walking into a trap with that guy from Omicron (or whatever the biz was called). Classic 24 moment ... Jack always has one lapse in judgment per season. President Logan is the most pitiful excuse for a TV human being ever ... he is just pathetic. I knew he'd choose to let his wife get killed because of his complete and utter weaknesses as a President. I'm bummed I couldn't find any screencaps from last night's ep but, I tried to make do:

It was only a matter of time before The Hobbit flipped out and shot himself in the foot. I suspect this won't be the last we see of Lynn McGill but it was great to see the whole team rally around Curtis and Audrey and oust The Hobbit. I was a bit surprised to see that limo survive a rocket launcher blast ... but I suppose that's what they're built for. I was very happy that Aaron survived ... I think he and Martha Logan should run off together ... after the day is finished, that is. All in all I was very entertained by last night's ep ... but I am THRILLED that next week will bring 2 full hours of 24! The excitement of such an event may just drive me wild! [Source]

Check out these pictures of Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie filming new scenes for their upcoming season of The Simple Life:

Note how they are no where near one another ... it's gonna be a fun season. [Source]

When Paris isn't busy filming TV shows she spends her time shopping for things she doesn't need ... and occasionally runs into awkward situations:

I have to believe that Paris Hilton isn't that close with Brandon Davis ... she doesn't strike me as the kind of person who overlooks a person's flaws for the sake of friendship. At any rate, let's just chuckle at the poor boy's see-thru blouse and be done with it. [Source]

My lord ... I ... I'm at a loss ... Ashlee Simpson has become the celeb with the absolute worst taste in hairstyles that I have ever come across (except for Kelly Osbourne and Kevin Federline, but those are givens). It appears that Ashlee's last haircut wasn't ugly enough for her:

Dayum. She's practically dead to me now. [Source]

Well, well, well, well ... what have we here ... is this little 15-year old Emma Watson (aka Hermoine Granger) being photographed knocking back a brewski?

What is it with the kids these days drinking Coronas? First we see Jesse McCartney imbibing the Jesus Juice and now little Emma ... it's curious, isn't it? Whatever would Professor Minerva McGonagall say about all of this? [Source]

Awww ... it's been a while since we've seen little Violet Ann Affleck out for a stroll ... check out these cute pictures of Ben and Jen taking their precious little girl out for a walk:

Expect to see a picture of this little lamb knocking back a Corona Light in a few short weeks. [Source]

Gwen Stefani looks amazing as a pregnant woman ...

She's actually glowing ... it's a beautiful sight. [Source]

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have fled to Tahiti to get away from the mad crush of onlookers ...

It won't be long now ... the TomKat moment of truth is close at hand. [Source]

Have you ever wondered what makes the X-Men mutant Juggernaut such a cross fellow? I suspect it's constipation as is evident in this picture of Vinnie Jones in his Juggernaut garb:

Wee! X-Men 3 hits theaters in a few short months ... and I can't wait! [Source]

Pink reader Armands sends in this hilarious picture of Nicole Richie and I just *had* to use it ... I mean ... I'm not trying to clown on Nicole but ...

... it kinda has to be done. Couple the picture of Nicole with the picture of Victoria Beckham ... lord ... celebs really do exist for our mere amusement. Loves it! [Source, thanks Armands]

And finally, it's not enough that the Sex Pistols have publicly snubbed their entry into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame but lead singer Johnny Rotten felt it necessary to post a hand-written letter showing his true feelings on his official website:

I'm sure he posted this letter as a point of clarification with all due love and respect for the Rock Hall. Oh and someone needs to fill ol' Johnny on the difference between "your" and "you're". [Source]

The News:
So ... yeah ... it's been an interesting couple of days. I am finally feeling better, still the lingering cough but considering how I felt a few short days ago -- I ain't complaining. I spent the afternoon with my parents and then the evening with Sarah and Mark.

I want to thank you all for your kind comments and sentiments for both Erik and me ... I know they mean a lot to me. I suppose I'm going to throw myself into my work and try and keep my head on straight. I have a quick trip to Chicago later on this week and then I'm gonna get outta Detroit for a few days just so I can clear my head. I'm still processing things ... life has gotten very strange, very quickly.

That's all for now, I'm out.
