Yeeeeeeeah. That wasn't a MJ story, it sure was an Anne Hathaway story! But look at those pictures! They look so much alike! So Anne, I am sorry. I actually like you very, very much and promise to never make this mistake again. But seriously girl, get some sun!
I've got a present for you. A Daisy Duke Photo Bonanza!!!!!
As you know, Friday night was Craig's Daisy Duke party and it was a blast. So now I present to you, the Top 6 Ingredients one must have for a successful Daisy Duke party. You know, in case you want to have one of your own.
1. Daisy Dukes
Well obviously a pair of short shorts is a necessity. The shorter the better. In my case, I cut them so short I could not sit down for fear of flashing all of my friends. My shorts were one thin strip of fabric away from being a denim skirt. Thankfully, this piece of fabric lasted all night. Phew. While you're wearing the shorts, a porn star pose is always an added bonus.
2. Jello Shots
Really a necessity to any party, Jello shots instantly make a Daisy Duke party more fun. The more variety of flavors the better!
3. Boys, Boys, Boys
Boys? Yes. Boys in short shorts? Yes please!! A bevvy of boys is always welcome when hosting a Daisy Dukes party. Of course, no Daisy Duke party is complete without....
4. Girls Girls Girls
The token straight girl. Love me some Lynne! Always dressed to impress.
5. Sexy Pose
An absolute must at any Daisy Duke party is a sexy pose. Extra points if you throw a sexy pout in there somewhere!
People, simply wearing Daisy Dukes isn't going to cut it. You've got to make sure you have the entire outfit planned and coordinated. For instance - DavidBrandon? Went for the whole "leather daddy" theme. Dom and Mikey? Sporty Daisy Dukes. More-O and I did a little country "these boots are made for walking" ensemble. Make it work, make it match, and make it fierce. Most of all - make it Daisy Dukey!
One last thing before I go:
MARION AND TABITHA??? REEEALLY?!!!

I had SUCH an amazing weekend with the More-O boys. Seriously, it was like one amazing memory after another. Friday night we had our Daisy Dukes party and I have to say that my costume came together quite well--pictures to follow. Saturday I woke up and did some laundry, then headed to my friend Alex's party on a roof top in Hells Kitchen. I feel really lucky sometimes to be treated to views like this
*I might want to start shopping in the Old Navy women's section after seeing Craig's cute tank top
*Cops love lesbians and Jack and Coke's.
*I learned I met and took pictures with a lot of people who I will not remember the next day.
*Sexy armpit photos aren't necessarily that sexy.
*Well placed middle fingers really make me laugh.
*I get really excited when seeing my Dodgeball lovelies marching in parades
*Shirtless boys on roofs? Yes please.
*Shirtless boys on floats? Even better!
*There is such a thing as 'too gay.'

Hey you guys, did you hear that Danny Gokey's wi....I mean, that Michael Jackson died? But...wait--didn't he die like five years ago? Look, I'm not saying this isn't sad and this isn't a tragedy, the guy was only 50 years old. But seriously? Is anyone truly surprised by this? He's been losing it for the past 15 years--maybe more! I'm not denying that he was a legend and that he changed the face of Pop music, but he was our generation's Elvis--you loved him when he was on top, and hated him when he was on the down and out. I think my former USU Professor Kevin said it best on his blog:
"Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett both died today and you would think a war was lost. There is nothing else on the news. I went to Facebook and that's all people are posting about. It saddens me but not in the way you may think. There are two major wars the US is involved in going on right now, the green revolution in Iran who's citizens are fighting for their democratic future, problems of genocide in east Africa, unemployment world-wide, nuclear games being played by North Korea - but the only thing to get Americans moved is the death of a controversial pop singer and a model turned mediocre actress turned cancer educator."
And also, all of these people who are like "too soon" when a joke about MJ is made. F'real? How could you NOT make light of this situation? It was a tragedy, but the guy was a walking freak show. I'm not going to pretend to be sad or broken up about it because I've been making fun of him for years--but that doesn't mean that I don't have a heart in there somewhere. Am I weirded out that an icon of my generation is gone? Sure. Do I feel sad for his friends and family? Well, of course. I think I'm more bugged about the people that are pretending to be heartbroken--really? You're really going to go home and shed a tear and quote MJ on your Facebook for the next week? Ai Dios...
My friend Ryan took it a step further than I did (I made one simple Billie Jean joke) taking to his Twitter and producing some of the funniest one-liners I've read in I don't know how long.
"What a terrible day for celebrity deaths, as today saw the deaths of two white women"
"I think I just heard Patrick Swayze go, "Whew..."
"Farrah Fawcett couldn't have chosen a worst time to die, & Governor Sanford couldn't have chosen a better time to announce his affair"
"I wonder who gets Michael's nose?"
"A text message I just received from someone, in response to Michael Jackson's death: "No way. Can he even die?"
"Okay Children, you can come out and play now"
Awful? Yes. Did you just laugh? Probably. Don't blame me, I'm merely the messenger. As it is though, I really just hope that the media outlets focus more on the legacy and music catalog that he left us and less on the controversies of his life. And let's face it--there were a bunch. But there is no denying his contribution to pop music and music in general. And I'll leave it at that.
Oh, but Corey Feldmann?

Hey, boo! It's me, Bri-Bri! What up "Girlfriend?!" I know you're well aware of "My Love," but this is going to be a different kind of letter, "This I Promise You." After lunch with More-O today, I came back to the office and put in your cd "Future Sex/LoveSounds" which I'm just now realizing came out all the way back in 2006! What?! "It Makes Me Ill" to think how long ago that was! Seriously, "I Drive Myself Crazy" singing the same songs over and over again--I "Cry a River" thinking about how much I miss you. Why would you do this to me Justin? Don't you know that "What Goes Around Comes Around?" Enough of this appearing on SNL crap, okay? "The Game is Over." You're a great entertainer, a great "Celebrity," but "Tell Me Tell Me Baby" when are you bringing "Sexy Back?" Ugh, it's just "Tearin' Up my Heart," I can't.
And this whole Jessica Biel thing I mean....really? You can't find any "Sexy Ladies?" That messes with me, JT. That messes with the "Music of My Heart," take me into consideration a little bit. Cause you know,"Like, I love you." And I really just want to "Rock Your Body" "Until the End of Time." That Jessica Biel chick, she can think what she wants but in the end "It's Gonna Be Me" and both you and her are going to have to deal with that. If you want, we can start out "No Strings Attached." Whatever. So what. Who Cares. Anyway, love ya, miss you on the music scene, looking forward to our "Summer Love." xoxo
Bye Bye Bye,
...sigh, Aaron Tveit....ah! Getting distracted, okay, anyway...
I have a new boyfriend! Last night I finally got around to watching Bravo's new "Gossip Girl"-esque reality show "NYC Prep" and I think it's love. The show's pretty trashtastic and tries too much to be like GG, but I have a sinking suspicion I'll enjoy it anyway. Something I know I'll enjoy? My new boyfriend, PC.
Yes, he's the real life Chuck Bass. And yes, I think he's completely 100% homosexual (even with his constant talk about girls) but man oh man, he does something to me.

In snoozeworthy news, Nick Lachey and Vanessa Mannillo have broken up. Do I care? No. Does anyone care? No. But with Jon and Kate and now this...it's like...come on! Can ANYONE maintain a successful relationship? Is happiness even an option in this world? I'd like to take a minute to applaud and salute those couples that actually HAVE made it work. They prove to me that a relationship IS possible and that one day I WILL be happy.
Wait...you mean...what? NONE of them?
