What I Learned In 2013

26 Dec

Life is a teaching moment. Or a learning moment. Whatever. I feel your pain.

Here’s what I learned in 2013:

  • Do NOT purchase a dining table on the internet. Not unless you and the family enjoy the novelty of Thanksgiving Dinner picnic-style on the living room floor with the pets.
  • “Try yoga. I hear that helps!” is the new “Take two aspirin and call me in the morning.” […]

I caught up with Chef Damaris Phillips, star of Food Network’s new show Southern at Heart and the winner of last season’s Food Network Star.

Damaris shares her take on the relationship between food and music, her favorite Louisville bands and venues, and the best Taylor Swift karaoke songs.

Damaris Phillips

After The Show: Do you ever listen to music while cooking? Would you recommend that people use music as a way to enhance the cooking experience?

Damaris: When I am throwing a party, I always listen to pop music of today OR the ’90s. I like to dance around the kitchen singing and gearing up for fun. For mass quantity of cooking, I’m going modern country, not too loud, but perfect for singing along and breaking up the monotony.   <MORE… CLICK HERE>

Moderation isn’t “in.” Everything has to be extreme.

I’ve personally witnessed “extreme googling,” “extreme kvetching,” “extreme tweeting,” and the worst of all… “extreme karaoke.”

Lady Gaga epitomizes this extreme spirit with her fashion sense.

Where's the beef?

In this economy, “You can’t take it with you, so WTF spend it now” and “Shop ’til you drop” has bitten the gold dust.

I Feel Your Pain

20 Sep

 

Barb Best Humor Blog

 

PAIN. Can’t live with it, can’t live without it.

Pain, of course, is entirely relative.

PAIN – THE NOUN

1) A feeling of marked discomfort, a distressing sensation in a particular part of the body: “She has severe pains in her arse, most probably due to sitting at the computer/at work/in the car all day.”

“Jury duty can be quite a pain in the neck.”

“Her boss gives her the most excruciating pain in her head and eyeballs.”

2) Mental suffering or distress : “During the holidays, I am plagued by the pain of listening politely to relatives pontificate on politics, religion, and reality TV.” […]

Pop Culture? Poppycock!

14 May

I feel your pain.  Do you feel mine? I bet you do. Yes, I refer to that niggling noggin splitting pain, that bone gnawing anguish, that teeming existential angst we experience whenever we face The Ugly Truth.

You know what I speak of, for like my humble self, you too are a highly discerning individual. Intellectually aware, artistically appreciative, cultivated, indubitably enlightened to a “T.”

Kindred souls you and I, we folks of gentle nature, we who cringe at double negatives and dangling participles as if they were sidewalk spitting or public urination. (They might as well be, you say!) We, who are dumbstruck by blatant ignorance as if it were a whack to the side of the skull by a cricket bat; we who recoil as garish tattoos and vile body piercings mar the landscape like graffiti violates a beautiful city’s grand architecture.

How is sequestration (THE budget cuts) affecting your favorite TV programs?

1 – THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS

#RHOBH is cutting the cast by one member. The vote is in. Adios Adrienne Maloof.

And take your Maloove Hooves with you!  Don’t let the limo door hit you on the way out.

2 – HOMELAND

Only enough chill meds for poor Carrie to take a magic pill every other day. Prescriptions are expensive even when you squeeze them from your sister the shrink. […]

Like computer worms and flesh eating bacteria, “Reality TV” just won’t go away.

Amazing how it simultaneously entertains and horrifies.

Yes, some of the people are interesting in often the most mind-boggling ways… but are they fascinating? Barbara Walters thinks so. […]

It’s season 3 of Bravo’s RHOBH and don’t ya jest love it?

Like most truly cheesy TV, “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” is provocative, potent, and chock full of teaching moments.

We are now blessed with 7 RHOBHs: Lisa Vanderpump, Adrienne Maloof, Kyle Richards, Kim Richards, Taylor Armstrong, Brandi Glanville, and Yolanda Foster.

BTW their combined ages are over 320 years.

SO they certainly can teach us a thing or two… or 7. […]
