To sleep, perchance...

All of my Dear Readers from the know that I used to spend a lot of time in bed! No no...just sleeping, unfortunately. Then, a miracle happened! A new doctor suggested I go for a sleep evaluation, where they attach the little electrodes to your head and watch you sleep. A friend of mine had done it and said it was actually "interesting."
So I did it...and they found that I actually was not getting ANY restorative sleep at all. I was jumping around...well kind of restless everywhere syndrome...and they suggested I go on a med, not unlike the ubiquitous restless leg syndrome commercials on TV say...and miracle of miracles!
I am reborn! No kidding...I now jump out of bed at 8:45...I know I know you who get up at 7 are thinking "what?" But for me that is incredible..and I do not even go back to sleep as I was wont to. I now have energy and am in a much better mood...thank god for that. So if you think you might have a sleep disorder...go find out. Trust me, it's wonderful to realize you are not getting too old to get around, just were tired!

It's debatable

I don't know how many people watched the first Democratic Party debate tonight, but I found it both fascinating and reassuring. There are more than one or two candidates who showed their smarts and capabilities. I won't say who I'm for...but in looking at some instant internet polling, I found these results:
Biden and Richardson made great impressions...not being in the top tier, they are not as well known. Barack did very well and demonstrated he belongs. Hillary was trying hard to keep her voice mellow. No comment.
But more importantly, I hope people listen to all the debates. It's only our lives at stake. Repubs next time.

Well, tonight Heather Mills was eliminated from Dancing with the Stars. Not important in the big scheme of things but I'm happy nonetheless. She is really tough to take. So full of herself it's scary and though she showed that people with disabilities can accomplish things, which is great, she is not the role model she wants us to think she is! We know the truth, don't we, Beatles Fans...even those who liked George the best, such as moi.

i have to say it

I know I'm usually amusing and dealing with fun things...but I have to say this and then it will be over. This horrible Virginia Tech incident should be proof positive that the "gun control" methods we have are not working. What is wrong with the powers that be that are so cowed by the gun lobby...which by the way is small in number...and 60plus% of Americans want better control! Come on Dems...get some guts and work to save more innocents. As to those dimwits who have said "well if all the students had had their own guns it wouldnt have happened." Are you out of your minds? Do you want to live in the OK Corral?

lala land

My week in LA was really good. I always complain about the vapidness of the place, but let me tell you a little sun, a convertible, the beach and good tennis make up for a lot! All in all I had a great trip this time.
Star sightings: went to lunch at the Grill which is a Bev Hills hot spot and saw a really big blond in a small tight dress, muscular thighs...and cheekbones that could cut you. Nicolette Sheridan of Desperate Housewives.
Went to visit a soap opera...don't ask. I had this crush on a young stud who reminded me of my grade school boyfriend and a good friend of mine knew the exec producer and took me to meet him. Very sweet, but sometimes it's better to leave fantasies as fantasies.
Had two business meetings with exciting projects possible...let's keep our fingers crossed Dear Readers.
And...ran into an old date who is actually single and we set up something for New York. Fingers really crossed this time.
P.S. I went back to and did a guest diary column about the trip...hint: Lucy and Ethel take a bath. You will laugh! That's an order.

With all the truly terrible things happening in the world, sad and devestating, perhaps a little lightness is not only ok, but necessary. Tonight was the night...for Sanjaya to go! American Idol watchers, and like me..voters for Blake, Chris, Jordan... finally got rid of this poor kid. I must say he had tremendous poise to put up with the abuse of Simon who really was a little too mean to the guy. And he still gets to tour and has become a teen age idol ala Michael Jackson, without the kiddie trouble, I hope! All distraction, and we need it.

What happens in Vegas...

...gets told to you, Dear Readers! I had a great time in Vegas! The clock seems to stand still and day blends into night. Three days there and it feels like you've been away for a month!
I had to get up at 6 a.m. to make my plane so that whole first day I was cranky...that plus the bags delayed, missing connecting with my friend whose plane was an hour late...and the fact that the room was not ready at the Wynn Hotel for THREE COUNT 'EM THREE HOURS for check-in. I was not a happy camper.
But the second day I awoke deciding to try "The Secret"...which is to say envision happy times and abundance and I did receive! Won hugely...well for me, $100 on a three dollar investment in the 'ungettable' tickets for Josh Groban on his one night there...and great seats too...and in general having a fab day.
The weather, food, and shopping were all good.
And I even won again at the slots at the airport. So...I went on to LA $5 richer than when I arrived. Hey...
it's all in how you look at it. That's my new secret.

I'm not making it up...

Those of you who used to read my column, The Search For Mr. Adequate, know that I have always maintained it's much easier for a guy to find a girl than the reverse. It's a numbers game and age plays a factor. To prove my point, herewith two items from the news. That's the real news, not the Comedy Central version.
1. A man in Saudi Arabia has just taken a second wife, not a rare thing there, right? Except that he is 110years old! And the new wife is...are you ready... 30! The 85 year old first wife was too tired to have sex with him.
2. The world's tallest man who is 7'9" married a woman half his age who is 5'6". I do not even want to have a picture in my mind of them having sex. But hey...good for him. He seems like a nice guy.
ANY MAN CAN GET A WOMAN...ANY MAN. I rest my case.
And I rest it as I go to Las Vegas to see if the odds are any better...and then on to old stomping grounds of LA and will report in when I get back. Keep your fingers crossed for my luck. A huge slot machine payoff would be nice...and yes, Mr. More than Adequate would be even nicer.
