We Didn’t Start the Fire…

… but Billy Joel did 65 years ago today – and I can guarantee that he (or anyone else for that matter) had no idea he would one day be married, and incidentally divorced, to an uptown girl like Christie Brinkley. Who, no offense, was exponentially out of his league. You make great records, Bill, but a hottie you are not so bravo for pulling that one off…

That’s right, folks, Captain Jack himself turned 65 years young today. Only the good die young, so I can only assume that Mr. Joel isn’t such an innocent man seeing as how he’s still in a New York state of mind.

Slow down, you’re doing fine, Billy.

Does anyone else ever picture what the hottest celebrities of today will look like in the FUTURE? dun. dun. dun.

This thought has been creeping into my head over and over ever since Jacqueline Bisset made everyone feel awkward at the Golden Globes.

Sure, her acting totally crazy doesn’t help, but getting older isn’t easy on everyone. Some of the celebs we all used to swoon over have really lost that “it” factor. The people who used to be on the poster you proudly hung on your wall are the same people who would make you pull your kids a bit closer if they passed you on the street.

I mean I can hardly control myself when I imagine Justin Beiber 30-40 years from now. Well, at the rate he is going it might only be about 5-10 years before he starts to look like this…

Now, this is not intended to make fun of old people, okay…maybe just old celebrities. It may be twisted, but I think I get a small amount of satisfaction when I think of how fleeting all that superficial mumbo jumbo is. Go on, just picture Miley Cyrus wearing that same nude bikini but maybe this time when she sticks her tongue out, her dentures go with it.

Don’t get me wrong getting older is a bitch. I don’t enjoy seeing my ass slowly take a downward turn, but the great thing is, it happens to everyone. Maybe it wouldn’t seem so painful if we all stopped putting so much stock into “beauty”.

There are so many things that get better with age. Yet, as a society we still cling to the one thing that doesn’t. Maybe someday we will learn, but for now we can still make fun of celebrities because let’s be real, they want the attention either way.

So here’s to you crazy old celebrities!

Facebook Highlights.

Like many of you, I log onto Facebook simply out of boredom. There is no easier way to receive your daily dose of both instant gratification and instant frustration. Talking about Facebook is a different blog entirely and we won’t get into all that right now.

I will say today was a banner day for my Facebook feed. Many of my friends had unusually entertaining posts. I figured I would give you all the best so you can post them onto your Facebook instead of that picture of your kid or dinner, or you drinking wine, or you drinking wine whilst feeding your kid dinner. You get it.

Here are my Facebook Highlights….

1. Weather… Ummm Hell No.

2. This Guy AGAIN.

3. I Wonder What My Parent’s Would’ve Done With An iPhone.

4. When You’d Thought You’d Seen It All

5. This Confuses Me But I Like It

6. More Awesome Ideas I Will Never Be Able To Duplicate.

7. Ukraine Got Talent… Or Ukraine’s Got Talent. Either Way, Home Girl Got Talent.

8. Instant Gratification.

9. Farts and such…

9.5 Woah. Finally. I’ve Been Inventing A Version Of This For 15 Years!

10. Predictable, yet poignant.

10.5 MY FAVORITE.

So you see Facebook can be a very interesting thing, but it can also steal your life.

So there’s that.

If the song ‘Happy’ hasn’t bored it’s way through your skull and permanently etched itself onto your brain then you’ve been missing out. I mean I heard that song at least 6 times today, and each time I just thought “man, I AM happy”!

Then I realize I will never be cool enough to wear a hat like this and I think, “man, maybe I’m not happy.”

There are some people who can just do whatever they want. Pharrell is one of those people. Pharrell could get away with murder, while he wears this hat…

Pharrell’s hats say so much about him, music, and the world…

#1. The military should be taken very seriously…

He is a huge supporter of the military, which is nice to see coming from Hollywood..Image

Let’s take a closer look..

Wait… I’m getting mixed messages here.

#2. It’s okay to continually wear the same outrageous thing, as long as it’s in different colors…

Pharrell is so cutting edge, he even wears it in RED!!!

#3. Beyonce is super excited about Pharrell’s idea to open a hat store. Jay – Z will own 51% of course.

#4. Anna Kendrick is sick and tired of Pharrell and his smiley hat wearing ass… maybe she is just jealous?

#5. Pharrell was once attacked but a pack of wolves. He killed them all with his bare hands and now wears their fur from head to toe despite temperatures in LA being consistently in the 80’s.

#6. Pharrell and his wife are surprisingly frugal. When they were asked about their marriage Pharrell said “we save a lot of money by sharing all of our clothes. Being the exact same size as my partner is something I knew I needed in life”

#7. Pharrell has a very serious disease called duplicationphia. He is unable to only buy one color of hat. He claims he is on medication, but it doesn’t seem to be helping.

#8. Pharrell does a lot of charity work with the youths in his home town of Virginia Beach. In a unrelated story there have been reports of children’s hats disappearing from that same area.

#9. Like a crocodile that needs to close it’s eyes when it’s mouth is open, Pharrell must close his eyes when he is not wearing a hat.

#10. When Pharrell doesn’t have time to choose a hat, he simply throws a blanket on his head, and it works.

The cold hard truth is…

Advice, Comedy, Design Studio, getting old, Learning, LeMonkey House, Mistakes, Music, people, Weather, why

This may go against everything you learned as a child but it’s the cold hard truth and someone has to say it. As you get older you start to realize you will have to cut things out. There simply isn’t enough time to do the things you need to do, let alone the things you WANT to do. Oh, and also you probably won’t be the president or an astronaut. Just sayin’

Anyway… I wanted to bring this up to help future adults better cope with the fact that they will be able to actually accomplish only a fraction of the dreams and goals they have when they are young, and also maybe a little bit as a cry for help.Fun-Time

Help with my time management. I mean starting my day hitting snooze 7 times doesn’t exactly get things started on the right foot, but gin will do that to you I suppose. Then we have the “to do” list in my brain. A list on which all of the items are battling for the top spot and therefore I cannot decide which to pick. So naturally I pick the worst option.

Take this morning for example. I spent a solid 45 minutes wandering around the apartment. Made two cups of coffee. Then I sat down to take care of business. What business did I take care of? I snapchatted my cousin a clip of a Stevie Wonder “Happy Birthday” video. That’s called prioritizing children.

yep.

I need a serious life coaching session.

This is the worst time of year for my time management problems. If it’s even remotely nice outside I will make every excuse in the book as to why I need to just roll around in the grass somewhere. I couldn’t possibly clean my bathroom, THE SUN IS OUT!

I don’t think everyone is guilty of putzing around like me and thank goodness for that. I’m a supporter of the go getter lifestyle, I just don’t seem to have the time to go anywhere or get anything. So, I hope all of you reach the goals you set for yourselves and all your dreams come true.

That being said, today is beautiful and I have lots of things I need to avoid doing.

Ummm so tomorrow is the first day of Spring.

happy-woman

I thought I would get this time of warmth and new life started with this list…

(even though I don’t know why some of these are suppose to make you happy, or if some of these are even real, but hey, go with it)

BE HAPPY

and this…

It may still be snowy, or rainy and cold where you are, except for you bastards in California, but soon we will all be soaking in the rays! So let’s get ready mentally and BE HAPPY!

Happy first day of spring people! (or at least people that it applies to, for everyone else you will have your time, pipe down)

For those people, I saved my personal favorite….
