Ms. v. Mr.

The woman in me is greatly distressed by (the normally beautiful and stylish) Ashley Greene's unevenly rolled Beetle Juice-inspired getup:

. . . the man in me is absolutely positive that this person is not the hottie from Twilight - and that it is almost Thanksgiving, not Halloween.

2009 American Music Awards

The AMAs aren't really a legit awards ceremony, so the following isn't a totally legit post.

The fashion was "eh" - but something big did go down (literally)...see below.

(Best Of)

Loves it.


(Worst Of)

Sorry, Nicole - even your hubby couldn't save you this time.

Ugh, why are you always here, Carrie Underwood? Go away already.

Too nudey.

Too sloppy (although I think it could have worked with better hair and make-up)

Alicia, I am tired of giving you As for effort/color. Sorry, hon.


What's with these Disney princesses looking like Lifetime ladies?

Too slutty, excuse me, slitty

Too pointy (like the booties, though)

Too drab

Oh, wait - here's another good look:

Wait a minute...

Oh no:

There's a video, too:

You Said It, Not Me

"In an interview with a fashion industry website, Kate Moss said 'Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.' Said the rest of the world, 'BACON!'"

BMW X6 M > Porsche Cayenne Turbo S(?)

The world's fastest crossover, the BMW X6 M features a 4.4-liter V-8, 555 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque, with peak torque on tap from a low 1,500 r.p.m. up to 5,650. It can go 60 MPH in just over 4 seconds (on par with a standard Corvette that weighs a ton less).

Pearls of Wisdom

"He who waits on God never waits too long."
-Chuck Wagner

Divine Design

IT was a cut-and-paste operation as aspiring designers gathered last week to show off creations improvised, literally, with tape and shears. Their efforts, unveiled at Don Hills, a downtown club, were part of Style Wars, a competition produced by the House of Diehl, a New York design firm. The point, Mary Jo Diehl said, was to give the young a chance to shine under pressure.

"In a dream world you've got six months and a bolt of Italian silk to make a dress," she said. "In the real world your resources and deadlines are tighter than Shrek in a Speedo."

Check out this side-by-side comparison by the New York Times.

"Leggo My Eggo!"

Kellogg Co. says there will be a nationwide shortage of its popular Eggo frozen waffles until next summer because of interruptions in production at two of the four plants that make them.

The company's Atlanta plant was shut down for an undisclosed period by a September storm that dumped historic amounts of rain in the area. Meanwhile, several production lines at its largest bakery in Rossville, Tenn., are closed indefinitely for repairs, company spokeswoman Kris Charles said in an e-mail.

It will take until the middle of 2010 before shelves around the country are stocked at pre-shutdown levels, Charles said.

Ms. v. Mr.

The man in me sympathizes with "Frodo" and how awkwardly uncomfortable this must feel:
