Shoreditch Millionaire


If Danny Boyle can make the Mumbai train station seem whimsical, then I can't wait to see what he does with 12 horses, 3 cows, 2 goats, 10 chickens, 10 ducks, 9 geese, 70 sheep, and 3 sheep dogs.

Electric House

Thanks to today's Emmy nominations, I've learned the show is called Downton Abbey, not Downtown Abbey.


I thought Maggie Smith seemed too frail to reside off the Piccadilly line.

23 (part 1)

In this month's Vogue, Adele jokingly said she was taking five years off to foster her relationship with her new boyfriend.


After selling her last boyfriend down the river to such financial gain, I'm shocked she found another chap willing to supply more fodder.

23 (part 2)

Adele is so in love, she believes her next record will be "happy."


My heart wishes her relationship well, my ears wish her relationship much anguish.

Cooler Than Rodney


This weekend London proved riots are better when performed with British accents.

Emancipate the Princess


Newsweek editor Tina Brown has come under scrutiny for printing digitally enhanced photos of how Diana might look if she were alive today. The article even offers a mock Facebook page to highlight Diana's present day cultural orbit.


What I found most tacktastic about this enterprise was Tina not including my blog under interests, or my name under friends.

I Now Pronounce A Slow News Week


Will and Kate's wedding proved blessed by royalty, the Beckhams, and no 'real' news to muddle the joy. Disasters such as Japan, Libya, & Donald Trump didn't get in the way of their special day. (Yes, the death count is over 300 in Alabama, but that is not Meredith Viera worthy.)

From the festivities we learned the Prince's hairline is suffering more than originally presumed, and Catherine Middleton does in fact speak.


I think I applaud the Alexander McQueen gown, but must wait to see if Elisabeth Hasselbeck concurs before I make a declarative endorsement.

Celebrate Good Times At What Time?


Thanks to Will and Waity Katy, I've had to do more math than the past decade combined to figure out when this wedding will take place pacific coast standard.

While on the subject, I think it's cool William's confident enough to let his hair thin like a real man. Having said that, if Jeremy Piven can get hair plugs, shouldn't our beloved Prince receive the same advantage?

Hero of the Week = Adele


If you see me driving round town (not with the boy I love) singing and crying to myself, it's because Someone Like You is on repeat.


This 22 year old British girl proves more cathartic than therapy.
