The National Champion Kentucky Wildcats will have their entire starting 5 go to the NBA

Keywords: national champs, kentucky wildcats, anthony davis, bobcats,

 

Yesterday their was a poll on ESPN asking if the Kentucky Wildcats could beat the Charlotte Bobcats. Well they will certainly get a chance to prove themselves come next year as their whole starting five is en-route to the NBA. Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist are projected to go 1st and 2nd in the draft. With those same Bobcats having the worst record in the NBA wrapped up, they have a pretty good chance at getting at least one of those picks.

 

 

Now for the other three reigning national champs. Terence Jones  is anticipated to be a lottery pick while Doron Lamb and Marquis Teague are expected to go late in the first round or early in the second. While most of these players were anticipated to head to the association, Teague is a guy that could benefit from another year at school. I saw flashes of greatness in the few game I watch Kentucky play this season. But Teague is a pretty raw young kid who sometimes played a bit erratically. Regardless of where everyone goes, Kentucky will have a huge representation come draft day.

Celebrity look-a-likes

First I would like to wish every one back to work and welcome you all to 2012!!  I was sad to see ’11 go. It was such a wonderful year, but I am excited for all the things the new year is bringing! With that said:

I am convinced we all have a twin or two out there in the world.  With all the trillions of people on this earth, there are bound to be similarities amongst people.  In the past I have been told I look like Britney Spears, Ana Faris, and my favorite…Judy Garland!

My favorite thing to do though, is to find celebrities who look like other celerities! So without further adieu…

Helen Hunt and Leelee Sobieski. This has always been my favorite celebrity twin duo.  The look-a-like action is just crazy!

 

Keira Knightly and Natalie Portman. Both beautiful woman who could be sisters!

 

Elijah Wood and Daniel Radcliffe.  Frodo and Harry Potter!!

 

Nicole Scherzinger and Kim Kardashian. Two beautiful brunettes.

 

I’m sorry…is that Chad Smith and Will Ferrell? Or Will Ferrell and Chad Smith?? hmm…

 

Even the President get’s to have his own look-a-like!  Barack Obama and Ilham Anas!

 

Soooo…who do YOU look like??!

 




 What a way to spend the weekend than with All Star Festivities.

 

Keyword: all star weekend, spend the weekend, all star festivities

Welcome back everyone! The weekend came and went and yet again it was another one that I can not complain about that is for sure.  Another hockey filled weekend on my end spent with great kid and great friends and family and some really good rink gossip.  On the other end it was nice to come home throw up the feet crack one open and rip into some wings and watch these NHL All Stars get it done out in Ottawa for the All Star Weekend.

 

 

The weekend kicked off with a bang with one of the funniest moments at the All Star Draft when Patrick Kane unknowingly chirps on live TV about a beautiful blonde in the front row, which had me rolling.  We then saw Team Alfredsson snag every Swedish player out there to accompany him and Lundqvist on the team.  Carey Price snubbed Chara on the hang shake after being picked for his team and Logan Coture received a life size key for a not to shabby Honda for being the last one picked in the draft.

 

 

The Highlight of the weekend was for me has to be Patrick Kane’s antics,  at it once again as he comically took the number one spot in the elimination shootout posing as superman giving us all a show-#beauty.  And last but not least big bad Zedno Chara who will huff and puff and shot your house down.  Chara was able to break the record once again and send Warrior Hockey Sticks stock through the roof when he put a 108mph rubber bullet on the net.  Is it me or does he look like Count Chocula?




Yes, it is customary to do so

Keyword: tip, customary, hairdresser, salary, commision

Just like a restaurant waiter, hairdressers sometimes rely on their tip.  Most salons pay their employees either a small salary, or give them a percentage of each client they work on.  Let’s say you pay $20 for the haircut of yours.  It’s probably true that less than half that actually goes to your hairdresser. So when you walk out the door without giving them something for their hard work, it is kind of a let down.

 

Recently I had a fellow stylist contact me to tell me all about how hard she worked on this one client and how she felt when she was finished-

 

“Dear Jill at weSTYLEny,

I have been working at a little salon on Long Island for the past 7 years. All of my clients are pretty loyal to me. Recently I had a new client come in asking for a full head of hilites. She had a lot of long hair so my boss quoted her at $135. I spent a good 3 hours on her. When I was all done she looked beautiful. She kept talking that it was exactly what she had wanted.  She paid the receptionist, then came over and handed me $3!! 3 singles folded up is what she placed in my hand after a 3 hour service! That’s like a 2% tip. I was insulted, angry, and extremely agitated! My boss pays us 35% of our clients. We all rely on our tips to help us make a decent salary. I would have been embarrassed if I was her. I had to share my anger as I knew you and your readers would understand my woes.

Sincerely,

Grace (a very agitated stylist)”

 

Well Grace, I feel your pain! If you can’t afford to tip your stylist on top of the cost of the service, then don’t have it done.  Especially if you were raving about the job well done. Tipping should  be based on how much your service is, how well the service is done, and personality of the person performing the service.  If all of the above are fantastic then an 18-20% tip should be added.  If it’s adequate then a 12-15% tip will do. But I don’t think I can ever justify a 2% tip.  It’s  degrading.

I hope my non-stylist fans read this article and take it to heart.  Please let your hairdresser know she is loved and appreciated!!




Where in the world is Carmen SanDiGAYgo?

So today, while doing work for my band, The Free Candy Band – I saw this picture on the sidebar and gasped with gayness! By all accounts, it appears to be either Rainbow carnival style slides or (even better) rainbow water slides! That’s what it looks like to me! When I clicked on the link, I was sadly disappointed and redirected to groupon.coms log in. Womp.

 

I googled “rainbow slides” but only came up with colored carnival slides that were not in the perfect ROYGBIV order!  I did however find other rainbow slides which I found to be very cool! Check it!

 

 

Could this be the stairway to gay heaven? 

 

 

The best I could do was save this little picture and ask you, my dear readers – where can I slide my bootie down the rainbow? Where is this ride of good gayness?




Looks like repurposing time!

Keywords: stale bread, alternate uses

 

Friday I brought you some myth busting tips on keeping your bread from going stale.  Maybe I was a day late though and you’ve already found yourself with a useless dried out loaf.  Well, useless no more!  How about I give you a couple ideas for those past-their-prime slices of pane!?

 

Make your own breadcrumbs… toss that old bread into the blender and add some Italian seasonings. Refrigerate in an airtight container for later use.

 

Homemade Croutons? Yes please! Simply dice stale bread into cubes… sauté with olive oil and sprinkle on some Parmesan cheese and seasonings.

 

French toas!  A breakfast favorite of mine.. initially invented to repurpose stale bread. Have you seen my recipe for Stuffed French Toast??  It’s to die for…

 

Feed the birds!  Never let anything go to waste when there are other animals that would love to have it!  Be Green and find a better use for your loaves gone bad, rather than chucking it in the garbage pail.
