Drug of the Moment: Latisse

I've been seeing a bunch of commercials on TV regarding lash extensions. There's L'Oreal and their patented lash-extending mascara, and there's Shu Uemura's freaky synthetic lash extensions that just make your eyes look like it grew feathers.

If those products flat out failed to wow your expectations, the FDA has finally approved Latisse, a drug that helps lengthen them lousy lashes.

Biologically speaking, eye lashes serve as a barrier to protect our eyeballs from gathering dust or small particles. It's not just there so you can flutter them beautifully. So in all technicality, Latisse is meant to aid the growth of lashes for those who have the inadequacy of generating them, a condition called eyelash hypotrichosis. It is not, by any means, an alternative to applying mascara or utilizing those prong-like contraption known to women as lash curlers.

But I'm pretty sure that some would be adamant enough to use them as a lash steroid of sorts.

News of the Moment: Moans and Groans

I don't normally read the Los Angeles Times' Sports section but this one caught my eye:

A French Open newcomer, by the name of Michelle Larcher de Brito of Portugal, is now well-known for something remarkable,
sort of. No, she's not the best tennis player in the Open nor is she the No. 1 seed player; rather she makes this weird shrieking noise everytime she hits a ball!

According to Times writer Chuck Culpepper, her screams were so indescribably colossal that--and I quote--"three ambulances turned up along Rue d'Auteuil outside Roland Garros, thinking someone in the draw had been attacked by bears that had wandered in...." Eventually she was booed out because her screams just got painfully annnoying and distracting from the game. Poor girl. But now we know who's a screamer!

Getaway of the Moment: MOCA at Downtown

I finally went on a small getaway yesterday. It's actually funny because it was a spontaneous plan. I left my volunteer post by 6 PM, and out of nowhere I decided to go to MOCA. Hey, it's a reward for a job well done!

But for something spontaneous, it turned out better than I expected. I boarded the bus 1o swiftly (I actually ran for it!) and dashed on the Angels Flight stairs with ease (my legs hurt afterwards), and finally went straight to Grand Avenue like I knew the place by heart. Boy, was that smooth riding.

By the time I arrived at MOCA, it was half past 6, which means free admission! Yeah, I got in for free, but I still needed to claim a ticket.

For those who have not visited the museum yet, I have to tell you, it did not disappoint. It has a pretty small square footage, but the exhibits were accommodated justly.

But I thought the real museum was...the gift shop! It was so beautiful! I wanted everything in there. As a matter of fact, they had Comme des Garçons and Issey Miyake goodies. That was a surprise. And to top it all off, they have a rack of my beloved magazines: V, V Man, Paris Vogue, Tokion, L'Uomo Vogue, Acne Paper, and i-D among others.

To sum it up, the gift shop is my heaven. I did leave the store eyeing this one Freitag bag and a Pantone coin purse. Yeah, you read that right, Pantone a.k.a. the color pallette maker.

Horror of the Moment: Eek, Mouse!

Today, I went to church to volunteer. I did so many things like sweep the grounds, carry produce, and post flyers around the community. I thought they were easy tasks since I'm used to that stuff.

By 2 PM, the church looks spotless and I pretty much cleaned whatever needed cleaning (I had to leave some places alone because they're off limits for me) so the pastors decided that I write up something for an event. They told me to use the computer in the office.

So I was trying so hard to come up with an angle to write about (I was chatting with Helen most of the time), till the pastors told me that they had to go somewhere. I was left behind to do the paper. Lame!

All was well, until I heard this scratching noise behind me, in a corner closet. I thought it was just some stuff falling off the shelves or something. But it recurred for another time. The noise just kept repeating until it annoyed me.

So I decided to check it out. I carried a can of Lysol just in case it was not stuff. I can't really see anything because it's a closet and there is no light (duh). But I intended on finding out the mystery noise.

And then it jumped! What? I didn't know what it was until I looked on the ground and saw this teeny mouse shuffling, running for shelter.

I screamed! What? Yeah, I screamed, OK! I sprayed Lysol all over the office and now, thanks to me, it smells like "crisp linen."

Stupid mouse. Scared the hell out of me.

Activity of the Moment: Volunteering!

I finally decided to do something productive for the rest of my summer. Yeah, I know you'll miss me from updating my blogs, and telling what's in and out of my own little world. But I have made my decision to volunteer.

No, it doesn't mean I'm a member of freaking Circle K or their ilk. In fact, I am doing independent volunteering at my church! Yey, that means more time away from home and less time wasting away in front of my computer. You have no idea how damaging that is to your brain cells. Or is it?

Anyway, the irony is that I'm in front of a computer here at church. So, I guess old habits die hard! Really hard. I'm gonna need alot of prayer for that.

Ensemble of the Moment: Bold & Beautiful

I know some dudes out there want to get in on the current Balmain-ia, but couldn't. So for those men whose shoulders aren't as built as Dwight "Superman" Howard's, here is your chance to go strong. Hurry before the look goes stale!

Clockwise from top right: bag by HE, $90 at; distressed jeans by Ksubi, $310 at; sneakers by Adidas, £59 at; jacket by Balmain, currently sold out at; wallet by Comme des Garçons, $104 at; brooch by Alexander McQueen, $72 at

Memory of the Moment: Memorial Day

So yesterday was Memorial Day and to tell you the truth, I had fun. My family didn't have a gathering that involved gajillion relatives. My dad's old friends from his old job did come over though.

So yeah, they had fun. I had fun. Everyone had fun. However, I did have to recover from my partying ways. Check out my itinerary yesterday:

9 AM: Wake up and eat breakfast.
10 AM: Clean up the yard; pluck stupid weeds.
12 PM: Take a shower and clean hands from the nasty dirt!
12:30 PM: The guests arrive; they eat, I watch TV.
12:45 PM: Time for me to eat.
1 PM: I eat some more.
2 PM: I eat a little bit.
3 PM: I had to eat some more.
4 PM: Dessert's here! I eat it.
5 PM: Eat some more; I feel bloated. And a little dizzy.
6 PM: I definitely had to eat to drown out my dad's karaoke voice.
7 PM: Dinner! Eating time, again.
8 PM: The last guest leaves; we actually had to take him home.
9:59 PM: We get to his house; offers us food. I decline.
10:30 PM: Back at home; clean up time, no more eating for me!

11 PM: The other clean up happens. LOL.

ARRGH! of the Moment: Someone Steals My Clothes!

I found out yesterday that someone in my house (I'm not gonna name any names, but you know who you are) steals my clothes! He calls it "borrow," but I call it stealing. The ironic part is he makes fun of the way I dress up; well, now I know I have a following in my own home, haha!

But seriously, if you want to borrow something, ask first. And don't return it all effed up, please! The clothes you stole are the ones I bought!

Ensemble of the Moment: Gold Rush

1849 was the year of the California gold rush. As for 2009, it would most definitely be the year you wear the gold, and rush for more! Pick-axe not included.

Counterclockwise from top left: shirt by Burberry, $160 at; jeans by Levi's, $70 at; rings by Maison Martin Margiela 11, $380 at; loafers by Giuliano Fujiwara, price upon request, contact +39 02 5810 5520 for locations; Santos 100 watch by Cartier, approximately $12000 at Cartier boutiques; Signature mobile phone by Vertu, approximately $25000 and up, contact Vertu for locations; jacket by Yves Saint Laurent, $1302 at; sunglasses by Cheap Monday, $38 at

Video of the Moment: Oscar v. Teletubbies

Oh goodness gracious, this video is freaking funny! PHEW...I need a break from laughing. So just watch the vid to know what it's all about. But beware!--you do not want your happy Sesame Street memories to go sour. View at your own risk. There's no risk, really.

Promotion of the Moment: It's a SALE!

Designer junkies everywhere, rejoice! Well,
female designer junkies, that is. The economic recession may be putting a wrinkle on your frowny face already, but this is no time to fret. Put on your happy face and go online right this minute!

There's a new website where you can get your little splurge without the disgrace of going penniless by the end of the day. Go visit; yeah, it kinda sounds like a gay porn site, but trust me, it ain't. is the sister site of They both sell designer labels, but the former slashes the price up to 80 freaking percent!

But if you want to pay for slightly discounted items, then Net-a-Porter is still the address to go.

But heck, who wants to pay that much, when you could get it for a fraction? So buy that IT bag you've been eyeing for so long! It's well worth your day.

Item of the Moment: Bondage Shoes

Into S&M in the bedroom? Maybe not. But for you, budding fashion slave, here is a chance to add a little whoop to your wardrobe. And there's no guilt necessary!

For spring, Paris and Milan dabbled with the idea of bondage; not the kinky stuff, but the thought of man on the verge of entrapment from the world, the past, etc.

A list of designers who incorporated bondage to footwear includes
Dries van Noten, Paul Helbers for Louis Vuitton, Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy, and Prada. Of these, only Miuccia Prada suggested a more D.I.Y. approach: use rubber bands!

But don't get comfortable, Mister. With tethers, laces or straps to choose from, there will be kicking
and screaming involved.

From top: derby shoes by Givenchy, price upon request at select Givenchy stores; shoes by Dries van Noten, £380 at; oxfords by Louis Vuitton, approximately $975 at select Louis Vuitton boutiques.

Culture of the Moment: U.K. Loves Manbags and We Don't

An unusual romance: Tough American dude, and Muse carryall by Yves Saint Laurent

There is, in the story of American fashion, a strangely enduring practice of buying...elegant...garment[s] and dressing it so far down it might have been scored at a rummage sale....

-Jean Hanff Korelitz, "The Sloppy Syndrome,"
Vogue September 2007

I recently read an article from The Daily Record that tells of a shocking new trend in the U.K. It states that "a staggering 18.4 million adult males" in Britain admit carrying a manbag with them daily. And by manbag, I meant the real deal manbag (the article points out that their sample spends at least £92, or roughly $144, for designer bags). Whether it serves as a fashion statement or a functional purpose is still in question, but one thing is for sure: our brothers across the Atlantic definitely know how to dress up, not down.

So how come we can't say the same thing to American men? I hate to say it, but it's such a depressing sight when I see downtown men, employed businessmen in fact, who walk in 7th/Flower, looking sharp and confident, but terribly sloppy. This breed of men typically wear newly cleaned suits with polished lace-ups, crisp, ironed shirts, ties, and a...what is that that an L.L. Bean backpack?

Yes, it sounds funny, but to me, it's just plain sad. Remember, I am talking about grown men who work for a living as professionals. So why won't they carry a decent bag (
a briefcase, a carryall, a duffle, a weekender, need I go through the alphabet?), for crying out loud?

Could it be the fear of looking good, of looking accomplished? Or is it the fear of looking a bit...effeminate? My advice: throw the doubts aside and man up! Carrying a manbag has a much better effect than looking like a lost hiker in the concrete jungle.

Game of the Moment: Lakers v. Nuggets Western Finals Round 1

Man, oh, man. This game was such a thriller, I was on the jumpy side most of the time, a reaction I only reserve while viewing Scream or some horror flick.

At the first half of the game, we can clearly see that the Lakers were challenged with the aggressive play the Nuggets are giving. But heck, I don't blame them; it's the freaking Western Finals, duh!

However, despite the obstacles, I was just really ecstatic that the Lakers did not give up. It was a tough game, I confess, but it was necessary. I'm just glad the Lakers won this round (at a close 105-103).

Remember that it's only the first round. So let's wait and see who wins in the end. To the victor goes the spoils!

Flashback of the Moment: Strong Shoulders

Remember the days when our moms put shoulder pads in their jackets? Well ladies, that trend may be well on a comeback.

Cristophe Decarnin's Spring-Summer 09 collection for Balmain (the one with Michael Jackson-esque jackets) made such a giant buzz that even Paris Vogue snatched up this trend for their May issue. Needless to say, big, bold, androgynous shoulders are on the horizon. And it's just the beginning!

A little sneak peek at what's in store for the Fall season suggest the 80's addiction with gender blurring. That means boyfriend jackets, strong shoulders, and rough-and-tough chic all wrapped in one season. So ladies, get ready to raid your boyfriend's closet. Rack up on your fall arsenal because it will be one rowdy year.

But I can't help but beg the question: is it too much looking back? Too much of the past creeping up? I mean, I really don't want to see 80's MJ walking past me any time soon.

Song of the Moment: Another Brick

The first time I heard this, I told myself: This, definitely, is the soundtrack of the 80's. For those not familiar with Fake, they are this Swedish 80's synthpop band. They mainly had their following in Europe; no wonder I heard it in a French movie!

Anyway, Fake truly embodied the whole 80's vibe of big hair, ghostly vocals and synths. One word: Awesome!

Promotion of the Moment: Matthew Williamson + H&M

Tired of your same old, same old ensemble? Want to break away from the monochrome pack? Have enough disposable money for new clothes?

If you answered yes to all the questions, then you're in for a treat! Starting May 14th,
H&M's newest collaboration with Matthew Williamson will be unleashed in select H&M stores. Most likely, the Beverly Center branch will get theirs. Check the website for details.

Just a little background, Matthew Williamson is very famous for (dare I say) wild, bold, and not-for-the-faint-of-heart colors and prints. That's why if you watched the ad, you see scantily clad models in ethnic prints and jungle motifs.

As for the men's collection, the same trademark of loud color and safari and techno-inspired graphics will be present. I'm not really a big fan of his men's collection because it's
way too fay. Although, I do like the dark blue biker jacket (retails for a whooping $249) sans the studs.

Not to mention the advertisement, I just have to hand it to H&M's marketing team: they did a great job. I love the whole boredom and escapist theme. Very ideal for the gloomy recession. Makes me wish I can run around Spain's beachfront wearing expensive clothes, and watch a technicolored meteor crash! And did anyone get the "I like my horse" part? That was a bit red herring-ish.

Show of the Moment: Crank Yankers

Oh boy, do I love this comedy puppet sketch show! It's so hilarious in a borderline rated-R way.

The most memorable sketch I watched was when Terrence, the assistant to the stars puppet, was calling a spa to arrange a wax and massage job for "Jessica Simpson." It's so funny when he said she has a "penis that's not a penis," and thus needed the workers' discretion!

But what I still cannot believe is the fact that comedians actually have the guts to prank call innocent people. And depict them as puppets (to protect identity)!

As the prelude states, Screw the innocent!

Lookbook of the Moment: Prada Spring-Summer 2009

We all know that a certain percentage of people here in the U.S. can afford Prada. More like the upper 10% of income-earners. But for the rest of us proletariats, we can just appreciate Miuccia Prada's astounding work from a far distance. And here is your chance to do so!

Before a new season starts, Mrs. Prada comes up with some awesome lookbooks to preview her latest collection. And she has been collaborating with the same illustrator to do so: Jeroen Koolhaas!

If you like what you see, then go download the tabloid at Prada. And if you want to check out more of Koolhaas' work, feel free to visit his website!

Remember to get it now! Fashion season ends much faster than a drive-by shootout.

Recyclable of the Moment: Plastic!

Did you know that plastic is made out of petroleum? And did you know that plastic degrades very slowly? That's why there's a whole legion of people who want to tax plastic or eliminate them entirely.

And yet people still use them as trash bags, shopping bags, etc. But who knew they can be remade to resemble something...not trashy?

Interestingly enough, Marni created some eclectic bijoux for summer. They are not made of platinum or gilded in gold. Instead they are made from the very thing we put in the trash bin: plastic!

So this summer, stay cool and stow away the obvious bling. Opt for something synthetic, yet alluringly eco-chic. Long live Earth!

Petal acrylic necklace $650, multi petal cuff $505; both by Marni at

Mash Up of the Moment: Rob Pattinson

We first knew him as the Hogwarts heartthrob, Cedric Diggory, in "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire." Then he morphed into the (creepily) amorous vampire in "Twilight." And now he's playing Salvador Dali?

In the newly released film, "Little Ashes," Dali (played by Robert Pattinson) sets off being an accomplished artist, while civil turmoil in Spain begins to unravel. In addition to the political drama, the film also copes with Dali's budding, yet taboo-ish, affair with a close friend. Scanadalous!

I am particularly ambivalent if this film is worth your time. As far as critics' reviews went, let's just say it was a dud. There. I said it.

But one thing still baffles me: what's up with the loopy moustache?

"Little Ashes" is rated R, in limited releases only.

Episode of the Moment: Kidney Now!

"Dealbreaker!" Oh, that could just be my new catch phrase from now on. Thanks Liz Lemon!

Anyway, have you seen the season finale of 30 Rock? If you haven't, then you are missing out on something divine. Tired of the usual hoo-haa in primetime TV (that's you The Office)? Behold, humble couch potato, for this episode is freakin' manna!

You'll never know what I'm talking about till you watch it. Go to Hulu before it's too late. If you don't, then you're a "dealbreaker!"

Hot Track of the Moment: Chester French

This dynamic Harvard-grad duo is hitting the music scene with a total BLAST! With rhythms that call to mind Beach Boys and The Beatles, they don't rest on their old-school laurels. They amp it up with modernism and a whole lotta pop.

They actually debuted their album,
Love the Future, recently so it's not too late to join the CF fun. And did I also tell you that they're Pharrell's newest prodigy?

DOWNLOAD NOW: "Jimmy Choos" - it ain't an ode to the shoe brand, but something else.

Art of the Moment: Architectural Shoes

Is it an Ikea chair? A fixture? A playground-thing?
Not even close: it's actually a shoe!

Yes, it's a shoe. And yes, it is pretty outrageous. I don't know if shoe designers get some sadistic pleasure out of creating footwear that is most likely dangerous, painful, or too out-of-this-world. But hey, something has to drive women to start spending!

Enter this shoe, called the Kiraro, from Celine. It's actually a runway piece: it's too darn high for the average woman to wear and, look, the arches are missing!

Did they cut production costs? Maybe.

But aesthetically speaking, it's pretty cool! It's more reminiscent of a sculpture than an accessory--more MOMA than The Americana. Could that be the reason they're priced the same way too?

Archless platform sandals, €795 at select Celine boutiques.

News of the Moment: Cheerios are Drugs!

The FDA has finally declared Cheerios as drugs!
Well, not exactly.

Remember the Cheerios commercial--the one claiming that eating a bowl of Cheerios can "lower cholesterol and treat heart disease"? Well, it turns out that the FDA wasn't very happy with this assertion since this claim is only reserved for FDA-approved medication. And as far as I know, Cheerios ain't prescription drugs. At least, not yet.

So what's General Mills, the maker of Cheerios, to do? Well for starters, don't advertise false claims! And second, encourage your customer base that a high fiber (that's where Cheerios come in), fruits, vegetables and a low saturated fat diet paired with exercise can help reduce the risk of heart disease.

And to think cereal boxes are the last to lie to us.

Trailer of the Moment: I Love You, Beth Cooper

With all the blockbuster hits ready to duke it out for our money, here is a movie that I hope would tickle your fancy. "I Love You, Beth Cooper" is a high school-genre comedy about a nerdy valedictorian (played by newcomer Paul Rust) who professes his love for the It chick (played by Heroes' hotsy-totsy killer cheerleader, Hayden Panettiere) and goes through a whirlwind of an adventure with her!

Sappy, crappy, too trite for your fancy? I hope not. With all the action-flick hype streaming everywhere, viewers ought to just relax and enjoy this summer film. Want to see a sneak peek? Check out the

Trend of the Moment: Futurism Now!

I don't know if you guys notice anything funky this season. It's not a bad thing just so you know, but I have the eerie feeling that futurism is the season's main trend, from the blockbuster hits in Hollywood to the runways in Paris.

Don't believe me? Then go to the theatres right this minute and tell me what most people are watching--"Star Trek"! In fact, more futuristic movies are on the queue, namely "Terminator Salvation" and "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen."

In addition, the latest Spring-Summer collections from the Paris runways procured the same vibe as these films. A glaring example is Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquière. His sci-fi vision just gave us earthlings future, metallics, and Lurex galore! A quick look at his collection and you'll swear they just came off The Enterprise.

Also, don't forget the auto industry! Sure, American automakers are on the endangered species list, but Ford Motors' Lincoln division ventured outer space for design inspiration. Check out their latest commercial!

So do you think it's time for us to embrace all the futuristic trends? Ready to hit the streets in CP30 leggings? Maybe...not.

Item of the Moment: Wool Blazers

I know it's pretty darn late to wear wool (especially if you live in SoCal), but I assure you that it's never late to stock up for winter. A few weeks ago, I went out with my best friend, Abby. We went shopping to the last place I see myself shopping in--GOODWILL! But, hey, don't judge! You'll never know what you can find in thrift stores; after all, one person's "trash" is another's treasure. And treasure it was for me: I found a pair of awesome vintage blazers from Calvin Klein and Giorgio Armani. Talk about splurge! Well, not really since they only cost 99.5% off the retail price.

So to all of you who pay full price for your luxe items, think twice before swiping your card! I swear, you can find great items in vintage or thrift shops out there. Plus, you get the thrill of the hunt without the stigma in your bank statement.

Catfight of the Moment: Lakers v. Rockets Western Semifinals Round 2

Ding ding! Oh my goodness. This round has got to be one of my favorites. I'm no basketball fan, but this particular game is so hilarious to watch! I mean, I have not seen professional basketball players be so passionate in winning: case in point the little catfights they make in the court. Meow!

And to think those things only happen in gym class (i.e. the cholas with the super long, synthetic nails
literally scratch you just to get the ball!). I say, these hulking men proved me wrong.

Lust of the Moment: Raf Simons Show Sandals

Holy, muthafreakin' hot potato on gravy! I never drooled this much over an item (or a person for that matter), but hell, this is worth drooling for. Call me crazy or materialistic, but I freaking want this! I think it's the recession giving me a little turn-on. OK that was just weird.

Anyway, a little reason why I'm on the verge of robbing a bank this moment is because this footwear is from Raf Simons' Spring-Summer 09 show. The guy is, like, the future of menswear; he gives us a reason to spend money on trivial stuff just like women would spend oodles just to get their Jimmy Choos! Not good enough of a reason? Check it out for yourself at Oki-Ni now!

And if you are convinced, go buy! Make sure you know the exchange rate between Brit pounds and U.S. dollars as their prices are in pounds.

Sandals, £479 at

Endorsement of the Moment: Extra 30% off at YOOX!

OK dudes and dudettes out there who are craving for last season runway goodies: YOOX is offering an extra 30% off on selected items! I for one want to go shop, but alas I have no moolah with me. But you working people out there ought to catch up on this awesome opportunity!

However, if you don't want to spend your hard earned money on yourself, please have the generosity to spend it on me instead! I would heartily thank you!

News of the Moment: Nutria in Aisle 25!

I recently read an article from the LA Times about a woman who sued Wal-Mart. Nothing special there since Wal-Mart has seen numerous suits filed against them. What makes this one very different, however, is the nature of the case. According to the victim, a rat-tailed rodent petrified her while she was shopping, and caused her to injure her back.

So is there a rodent-infestation going on?

The irony here is that there is no rodent infestation inside the said Wal-Mart. As a matter of fact, the employees knew about the wandering rodent (an animal known as the nutria) and even named it! So why did they fail to inform their customers about it? I have no idea.

Then again, what's the worst that could happen to Wal-Mart shoppers: no double discount Tuesdays?

Event of the Moment: LOH Missions Benefit Party

OK, so tomorrow is the Benefit Party that my church is hosting, and I'm pretty excited. It's supposed to be a fundraiser for the Missions Team who is going to the Philippines this summer. Mind you, I am not one of the team. But I do hope to contribute to their efforts. And as a special surprise for whoever is reading this: a personal invite from me! Yes, you might as well come to this event. Arrive at 6 PM, and it's for free. It's gonna be swell!

2707 West Temple St.
Los Angeles, CA 90026

Song of the Moment: Lonely Blue Boy

Yeah, yeah. I know this song is pretty ancient, but it just got me! I absolutely love the version sung by Conway Twitty. Go ahead and listen! Revel in nostalgia or whatever.

Weirdness of the Moment: Pole Dancing

Pole dancing in the Red Light District is fine. However, the same cannot be said if it was done in the Metro Red Line. While I was taking the subway home today, I swear, some lady just came out of nowhere and started pole dancing. Kinda reminded me of the Pussycat Dolls' "Wait a Minute" vid. Except her performance was more of a C-.

Better luck next time!

News of the Moment: Keifer Sutherland v. Proenza Schouler

It appears that the famed Costume Institute's gala at the Met stirred a little ruckus.

Not only did it make headlines because Anna Wintour, Vogue's editrix-in-chief, ommitted to present Azzedine Alaïa's work
, but it also included a little head-butting incident between 24 star Keifer Sutherland and Proenza Schouler co-designer Jack McCollough.

According to Couture in the City, Sutherland "head butted [the] fashion designer in defense of actress and former model Brooke Shields." McCollough accidentally bumped Shields, but clearly, for the action star, it was a full-on assault towards her.

Hero moment? I highly doubt it since Sutherland has to appease the law because of his DUI charge in L.A. Instant trip from hero to zero? What do you think?

Event of the Moment: FINALS!

I'm super ecstatic to say that next week is my finals! I can't wait for it to come actually. I just want to end this semester. Not that it was sucky or anything of the malevolent sort, but I just want summer to come. Like, right now.

In other news, presently I am completing my Blogger profile. I've had a Blogger account for decades but I only posted something, well, today! So surprise, surprise.

Oh, by the way, I am currently following this one blog:
Abby's in Trouble Again

She has some funny stuff to tell. So go read!
