Rock & Roll & Random Sh!t

Go here. Vote. Pony.

1. Plain Cheerios really SUCK. Give me Peanut Butter or Multi-Grain or Cinnamon or Chocolate, but DO NOT bring two economy sized tubs of plain Cheerios home from Costco, jerk. Oops, too late.

2. Memory prompted from reading Love Maegan's post yesterday. SOMEONE has two thumbs and used to play Mr. Mister's Kyrie Elaison on the synthesizer and sing along, and it's THIS guy (just call me Ross Gellar). Someone may have also taken said synthesizer to the AIRPORT once, along with headphones, so they could play whilst waiting to pick someone else up from a flight. No WONDER I only had one date in high school, and that guy came out of the closet a few years later.

3. Best quote from a book I listened to today. One of the characters was telling her friend about a break-up, and she said "All it took to get over him was a sleeve of Thin Mints and 40 minutes." Priceless.

4. While I was working out to Zuzkalight last night, Gavin and Scarlett were watching me, and Gavin said, "That looks SO COOL. When I get big I'm going to do that," to which Scarlett replied, "When I get big, I'm going to sit on the couch and eat chocolate." Oy vey.

5. WHAT has Courtney Cox done to her face? Tom and I have been on a Friends kick lately, and watch 3 - 4 episodes on TBS every night (and by "watch" I mean I watch one, and then fall asleep while he giggles like a leeeetle girl). ANYHOO, whilst watching, TBS shows approximately 8,000 commercials for Cougar Town, and I am sad to say Courtney looks like she is morphing into the crazy cat woman lady who has had all the plastic surgery. I am all for a nip or tuck here or there - or even an injectable in moderation, but she seriously does not look like herself at all. It's so drastic a change from Friends to now. Sad.

Okay, in order not to end on a bummer note, I give you my interpretation of a rock star.







What a pretty pretty princess.


Michael Jackson...


Mick Jagger...

Uh oh...I've done it now. I guess I assumed you would have already known. Note to self - when MOI hits it big in InStyle, I'll find out on my own. Ahem....

Karrin said...

Your Mick Jagger pose made me chuckle! Sometimes you're just perfection and exactly what I need in my day.

MerciBlahBlah said...

Karrin - your sweet comments make MY day. Just call us Clint Eastwood. And Mick Jagger.

Jenny @ Spry On The Wall said...

I'm glad someone else has noticed! I have been seriously disturbed by Courtney Cox's face situation for a while now. I just don't understand why she did that. Jenny McCarthy is looking like that too. That weird puffy, frozen, waxy thing. It's AWFUL. They both look like Joan Rivers, but the thing is Joan is 30+ years older than both of them.

I love plain Cheerios - don't hit me...

Girls Love Fried Pickles said...

Omg! I love you! This cracked me up! And do not morph into Mick Jagger or we will have a consultation convo. Oh and I also confess I cannot do the duck face. I try and it just looks like I farted every single time.

[oomph.]

I have thought the same thing about Courtney she is definitely looking different , if anyone can do the rock n roll look its you. My fab pose is the micheal Jackson , he would be proud next time the moon walk.

I am glad you said something about Courtney Cox! I almost thought it was a joke for her show at first. Guess not. That's too bad!

Also, which mascara do you use? Maybe you could do a little make-up tutorial someday? Just a thought. Love your look.

MerciBlahBlah said...

Jenny, Becks, and Carrie - I know. I hate that CC felt the need to do that to her face. I haven't seen Jenny McCarthy, I'll have to google her. I guess that's one perk of living in the midwest - we don't have quite the pressure of women in Hollywood to fit a certain mold. After a while, they all start looking like Real Housewives. Yeesh. Jenny - your "don't hit me" comment made me laugh out loud. True story.

Dusty - have you seen the AntiDuckface blog? So. Funny. I try to use it sparingly, and only ever in jest. The people who duckface in every single photo mystify me - are they SERIOUS????!!!

Lindsey - holy cow - that comment just made my day. Thank you so much! Blushing...

HJolley - Wow - thank you!! I use L'oreal Voluminous in Blackest Black or Black Noir (I don't remember which one). If I'm feeling fancy, I might buy Fresh Supernova, but it's more spendy, so I usually just end up with L'oreal. Ooooh, I will definitely contemplate a makeup tutorial. I hadn't considered it before, but it IS a new year, and I'm wanting to mix it up a bit on ye olde blogge. Hmmmm...food for thought...

Emily said...

LOL and a snort for the Mick Jagger. I saw CC on Conan and she looked gross and it made me feel sad.

Scarlett has it RIGHT, and so do you about the Cheerios and the Kyrie Elaison (along the road that I must travel).

Shan - Love the look!
