La Tour De France

I am writing this post literally from on top of the world. I am at the topmost level of the Tour Eiffel overlooking the Seine river, Notre Dame and the Louvre museum. This view is absolutely spectacular. I want to stay up here forever.

Absolutely amazing!

Jour Des Morts

Today's post is going to be a shorter one ... today is David's birthday and we are heading out to begin his birthday celebration in a couple of hours. We're starting out the day with lunch at the Eiffel Tower and will be taking the day from there. We hope to end the day with a romantical boat ride on the Seine River. Wee!

Okay ... let's get to it ... here is a new picture of the new, second-time in under a year, aunt Jamie Lynn Spears posing with a couple of her Zoey 101 cast mates in their pajamas:

Surely, they are shooting a scene for their show and they thought it would be a great idea to take a picture so that all those creepy old men fans out there would have something to remember them by. I swear, I'm not referring to the Thigh Master in particular. [Source]

Madonna (alongside photographer Steven Klein) has unveiled a new short haircut at the X-STaTIC PRO=Cess Photography and Videography Exhibition at the Louis Vuitton Roppongi Hills Store in Tokyo, Japan yesterday. This new 'do is for the filming of her upcoming video for Jump ... so ... what do we think?

I gotta admit ... I really hated it at first. It looks great from far away but not so much up-close. It is growing on me ... and I do love that she's so drastic when she changes her hair. We'll have to see how she rocks this look in the coming weeks. [Source]

Here are a few photos of Jessica Simpson and Dane Cook from the Hollywood premiere at Mann's Chinese theatre of their new movie Employee of the Month last night:

Now, the bob thing looks a bit better on Jess than it does on Madonna, at least in the pictures posted today. I'm not a fan of the oh-so-sweet June Cleaver 1950's housewifey look but it is one of Jessica's signature looks. I'm thinkin' that Dane Cook looks constipated in these photos ... maybe it's the suit, maybe it's the beef stew he had for dinner -- I'm not sure. Anyways ... according to the movie trailer, the premise of the movie is that Jessica's character will only go out with guys who become employee of the month and Dane's lackadaisical character decides to win employee of the month so that he can score a date with her ... and, presumably, love ensues. I really hope the movie is funny because that's about all it has going for it. [Source]

Lindsay Lohan has decided to take her fractured wrist cast on tour and felt it necessary to jazz it up a bit by slipping on a nice, cast koozie:

I mean, after all, when a Hollywood "It" Girl fractures her wrist in two places and has to wear a cast then she needs to make sure that she does so in style. [Source]

Oh wait ... scratch that ... Lindsay Lohan has actually decided to keep her cast from sight and felt it necessary to tuck it way inside the sleeve of her shirt:

Justin Timberlake seems to have a hard time grasping the notion that he is a famous person. Here are new pictures of the pop star about to go psycho on a paparazzi photographer outside a party in the Hollywood Hills last night. It looks like someone's bringing AggroBack:

Yeah ... JT is lookin' pretty pissed. The fact that Cameron Diaz had to hold him back is surprising ... I always thought she hated the paps more than he did. It would have been interesting to see what would've happened if he Justin was allowed to attack the photog. [Source]

David Beckham likes to wear hats ... the thing is, he prolly should wear hats that fit him:

Oh who am I kidding ... he looks even cuter with this 4-sizes-too-big newsboy cap on his head. I wonder if he was intentionally going for that prepubescent look? [Source]

JoJo was on hand for a fabulous J-14 magazine event at the Astor Place K-Mart store in NYC late last week ... here are a couple of photos:

Yeah, pretty much all you needed to hear was "JoJo" and "K-Mart" and you pretty much get the gist. [Source]

It would appear that poor David Duchovny suffers from an unrelenting incontinence problem ... here are a couple pictures of David and his wet ass:

You know, anal leakage is a serious problem. He should prolly get himself check out immediately. [Source]

And last ... but certainly not least ... I have to send out LOTS OF BIRTHDAY LURVE to my babycakes David Hauslaib! The whole reason we timed this trip to Paris around this week was so that we could celebrate David's birthday here! So please join me in sending him lots of birthday love:

You know, I gotta say ... I have never been happier in my life. I'm fairly convinced that I've met the love of my life. We are so happy together and I'm very happy that I'm able to share his special day with him here in the beautiful, romantic city of Paris! Happy Birthday, David, I <3 you! XO

Les News:
Yesterday was our day to hang out with the dead people of Paris ... we started off the day with a little trip to the Catacombs. I'm very glad that a couple of commenters here on the blog suggested that I bring along a flashlight -- it did make for a much more enjoyable experience. Tho, I wish someone would have warned me that there are parts along the way where the ceiling drips huge globs of water on your head. They should definitely put that bit of info in the brochure:

We still had fun hanging out with all those bones nonetheless. I was very surprised that all those bones are just ... loose. I figured they'd be glued down or something ... but they're just stacked. Well, I suppose if you have thousands upon thousands of bones you need to store ... that's about the best way to do it.

After our trip thru the catacombs, we hopped the train to the Pere Lachaise cemetery. We brought along a bottle of wine, some bread and some cheese and had ourselves a little picnic there in one of the cemetery gardens. It was so nice. We got a little carried away with the relaxing and the time got away from us. While we were looking for Jim Morrison's grave we were shooed out by a security guard who informed us that the cemetery was closed. We had to slip away and find it before we left tho. I had forgotten that the bust of Jim Morrison is no longer there, just his grave. I would've liked to have seen it in person. Pere Lachaise is a beautiful cemetery -- it's a lot bigger than I thought it would be. You really need to take a few trips to see everything and everybody there.

Last night we had dinner at Kong -- which was nice but nothing uberspecatular. The food was pretty good and the atmosphere was fun but I think our Italian meal in Montmartre was our best thus far. After dinner we took a little stroll along the Seine and then hung out on a bridge watching the Eiffel Tower twinkle. Basically, it was a pretty typical, amazing Tuesday night in Paris, France.

So ... I guess that's it ... we have a full day ahead of us ... I'm out.
