Checked out the TEP Holiday Party last Friday night. It wasn’t quite as ‘grand’ as it was last year; I suspect that is because Renee wasn’t in charge of rounding up the posse this year. Oh yes, I KNOW she will not agree, but then again, she is so very un-assuming! It was still nice to see some friendly faces, (see photos) even as COLD as it was that night! I am here to tell you that I have the FROST BITTEN LIPS to prove it. (Not kidding, they have been pealing and rough ever since then.) I don’t know HOW I could have been caught WITHOUT my chapstick, right girls?

WHAT ABOUT OLE VINCE YOUNG?! I think I am in love now. And even though I hate to admit this, I have become a PACMAN fan too! (At least on the field anyway.) Those TITANS are trying to kill us with their suspenseful endings. But, that was a FANTASTIC way for the game to end on Sunday! The PREDS have been disappointing us this week…(they DO have a lot of injuries though). It’s like we just can’t get both teams to win in the same week, right? However, there is an exciting game coming up against the SABRES next week. I have been anxiously awaiting this one.

I saw William Shatner on ELLEN this week talking about his $75,000 kidney stone. Now Nissa, this has given me an idea..yes, for once, I am going to steal from ELLEN, INSTEAD of vice versa. I think you KNOW where I am going with this, don’t you? (Let’s just say this…we can NOT consider ‘your stone’ as a “DIRTY SANTA” present, ok?) I don’t care how much you may think it is worth! Heehee…

Can you believe Christmas is upon us? I know you have ‘barely ‘ had time to get my presents wrapped, right?

Did you happen to catch the Out & About Today Show this past weekend? It looked very stylish on the ‘new set’. The rich colors of the set made the hosts actually…POP! The round-table was "pretty in pink" meaning they all wore their best pink shirts. They actually blended very well, especially with the new set colors.

The movie this week is "Take the Lead" starring Antonio Banderras’. I have to admit I did like this movie more than I thought I would. It was certainly different listening to "ballroom rap"!  (WHO SAID RAP WOULDN’T LAST?) Knowing that it is based on a true story makes it even more interesting to me. Even though the movie appears to be fairly predictable, it still draws you in. And while Antonio looks very nice while doing the tango, I still can’t forget when Selma Hayek and Ashley Judd tangoed in the movie, "FRIDA".  Whoo-Hoo! Remember that? If you don’t then you didn’t see that movie, go rent it! I gave THAT tango five VALSTARS! Take the Lead on the othe hand receives three VALSTARS.
