Cleanse the palate

UPDATE: I just read on CNN that Gale was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident on Tuesday night.  They’re reporting that he has a fractured shoulder and swelling of his brain, but that he is (thankfully) expected to recover.  My thoughts and prayers go out to Gale and his family, and I wish him a speedy recovery.

And now I must obsess that my posting about Gale somehow caused him to–oh, I don’t know–ALMOST DIE.  In psychiatry, this line of reasoning is called “magical thinking.”  But a psychiatrist also tried to tell me that the unicorns frolicking in my backyard were deer, so what do psychiatrists know? (Because they were SO unicorns.)   

To make up for posting about Sarah Palin, I’m putting up some pictures of my main imaginary boyfriend, Gale Harold.



Gale is the newest cast member of Desperate Housewives, which–if you’re not already a DH fan–means you should start watching it immediately.  And if you’re over the age of 18, I highly recommend ordering Queer as Folk , the Showtime series that first put Gale on the map.  His indie films Particles of Truth and The Unseen are also very well done, if you’re in more of a movie-mood.

Again, my apologies for posting about the female George Bush Sarah Palin.  It won’t happen again.  Unless she does/says something incredibly stupid before the election.  Which is extremely likely.  Actually, make that 100% certain.  So you probably will see her on here again.  Oh, boy.  I can’t wait.

Sarah, Sarah go away . . . don’t come again another day.

Sarah Palin.  I am so sick of hearing about her that it actually pained me to type her name just now.  Her five kids with their stupid names (Track, anyone?), her moosehunting (never, ever trust a woman who claims to “love” to hunt/fish/insert other guy activity here), her rimless Kawasaki custom-made eyeglasses (isn’t Kawasaki a motorcycle?).

I wish she would just go back to Alaska, seal herself in an igloo, and never come out again.  Really, I do.

Now, my mother, on the other hand–she thinks SP should be, not the vice-president but the PRESIDENT of the United States.  She loves her.  Can’t get enough of her.  Thinks she’s the best thing since the Chi flat iron.  Which as those of you who have experienced the magical joy of a Chi iron know, is a HUGE compliment. 

We’ve agreed to disagree since my mother is clearly delusional that’s the adult thing to do.

All that being said, there is one good thing about Sarah Palin.  Her name is Tina Fey.  (SNL is funny again!! Yay!)

 In other news, we went to see Beverly Hills Chihuahua over the weekend.  I know, I know.  But how can you resist this?

Can you say totally adorable?

And I’m almost embarassed to admit this, but the guy in BHC is kind of cute too.

Hmmmn, do I have a new boyfriend?
