This is very cool
An experiment on how what we see on magazine covers isn't the real deal. It supposed to be saying something about marketing and body image and things like that. I just think its sad.

|You Communicate With Your Ears|
You love conversations, both as a listener and a talker.
What people say is important to you, and you're often most affected by words, not actions.
You love to hear complements from others. And when you're upset, you often talk to yourself.
Music is very important to you. It's difficult to find you without your iPod.
Today's CD: You know.....this isn't a bad CD. It isn't a great CD, but it isn't bad. AMG calls it "Imitation Swing" and that is pretty accurate. But, it sounds like an authentic imitation, at least. I don't know. Its a short CD, I got through the entire thing on the way to work, but it isn't bad. Definitely something you'd want to check out from the library instead of plunking down hard earned cash for. Not Bublé's best, for sure.
Has anyone seen Totally Blonde? I haven't yet.
Twelve Sharp I read this while sitting on my couch last night. And watching tv. Its mindless, paging turning fun. That's what summer reading is all about, right? I don't know why I keep reading this series. I don't really like the main character. I'm not at all amused by Grandma Mazur (who everyone else seems to adore) and I yawn at Stephanie's "adventures" with Lula.
So, why do I still read? Oh yeah. Ranger. Morelli is alright too. But, it says something that a mere 10 days after its release, there are already 110 reviews on Amazon. Plum crack is what it is.
She Just Rocks. Really, I can't think of anything else to say.
Ghana is gone-a, even though Brazil hasn't looked fabulous in this tournament. They've looked just as all right as everyone else.
Now that the US has been unceremoniously eliminated, I'm throwing my lot in with the side I know the best. That would be England. After that, France. The France-Brazil match on Saturday should be great. I was going to work a bit on Saturday, but with England-Portugal at 11, followed by Brazil-France at 3....it probably ain't gonna happen. Life is like that, sometimes, eh?
But, speaking of the French.... more great pics.

An Unfinished Life. I'm an unabashed Damian Lewis fan, so that means I search, like a stalker, for movies that he's in that I haven't seen. I don't know how this one got by me, but I found it on the shelf at work and did a happy dance. (It was cute, you should have been there!) He was an asshole in this movie, but it was a great movie. The only problem I had was one scene -- just one-- with Jennifer Lopez. I'm a J-Lo fan too, so this isn't hatred. Its just.....there was one scene where she really just piled it on. HIGH DRAMA. It sucked me right out of my comfortable suspension of disbelief into eye-rolling and shaking my head. She was doing so well up until that point, holding her own with Robert Redford (which, I imagine, is damn near impossible). After that, she was good again. It was just that one scene.....not enough to put me off the whole movie, but enough that I remembered it two days later.
More Netherlands crazy people. I'm getting the whole punk rock vibe here, but face painting is sooooo last season! Its summer, boys. Take off those shirts and paint that chest!
The protests at the Mexico-Iran match
Don't ask me. I have no idea.
Are those horns?! I'm sure its a cultural thing I know nothing about.
And last, but not least, my favorite. I like to call this one "Witness Protection"
