From the garbage...

Do you know what I love about my guy friends? Most are older than me but they have the minds and hearts of 12 year olds and it's awesome!

I was hanging with one said friend and after throwing back a few, devouring some delicious hot dogs and attempting to organize a yoga party, he busted out his album full of his Garbage Pail Kids trading card collection. Yes!

I spotted the Garbage Pail Kid that I associated with growing up, Dee Faced. Check her out:

She's pretty awesome and I love how her hair color changes. Did any of you have a Garbage Pail Kid with your name or a version of it?

Guess where I'm headed...

Beautiful New Orleans! I will be there next week and I'm so thrilled to finally be taking a little vacation from the craziness that has been my life lately. Funny thing, I was in New Orleans around this time last year and they were filming two movies while I was there: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (beautiful movie) and the craptasic 12 Rounds (starring wrestler John Cena-enough said). Of course with my luck, I had a chance to see a couple of scenes of 12 Rounds being filmed and even spotted John Cena but no Brad Pitt/Angelina/kids sighting. Oh well. You can't win 'em all!
