These commercials usually have a lot of beautiful women lounging in sweaters, petting dogs, walking in the snow, etc. The music always has a female singer and is sparsely composed–usually just a guitar or piano. There are no baselines, no throbbing beat, just vulnerable folky warbling. That’s right up my alley. You Tube videos …

Devoted Customer Upset Jimmy Dean Downsized Sausage 16oz To 12oz But Charges Same Price.
This is the greatest thing I’ve heard in awhile. This poor Texan just wants to feed his plump wife and 600lbs of men in his home. How could you Jimmy Dean?

I have a confession to make. I love notebooks. I love getting new ones and flipping through them for the first time, when they’re crisp. I love filling them up with notes and changing their definition. What was once a bunch of blank pages becomes design notes, then it becomes job interview details, and on and on. When it’s full, it’s a little slice of your life all written down. As a blogger and web …

Einhorn is a man! Lisa Edelstein, on the other hand, isn’t. Well, I don’t have first-hand knowledge of that but all evidence I’ve seen suggests that it is true.
The true gender of Edelstein is not the point of this. The point is that Lisa Edelstein—who plays Dr. Lisa Cuddy on House—has always looked familiar to me. I could never put my finger on it. Every scene she’s in gives me that feeling like when …
