Daily Hot Flash

  • It's a crazy, mixed-up world today...The world markets are crashing...Obama has so much more money than his rival that he's gone out and bought his own television network. John McCain and Sarah Palin have discovered that the angry people who are attending their rallies don't give a fig about a terrorist who hasn't terrorized anyone for 40 years, and are actually freaked out and pissed off about no longer having a retirement fund. Meanwhile, the lovely and smarter-than-she-looks, Sarah Palin, circumvents the whole Troopergate debacle by issuing a report of her own clearing herself. That is such a smart strategy that I might apply it to my outstanding student loans.
  • Like a fine wine...women do get better with age. Or at least happier...
  • Read this and then I dare you to walk down the street without strutting. Dare you!

In an effort to make you feel better in these trying times...Cinderellavision brings you a clip of an Iraq war vet returning home after 14 months away to be greeted by his two best friends. I hope it makes your day the way it made mine. In the end, it's the little things that matter the most.

'Lord, let me be the person that my dog thinks I am.'

  • Newsweek's cover girl this week is Sarah Palin. The story inside the magazine is less than flattering, and the Republicans believe the photo on the cover is not so flattering either. They're ticked off that Newsweek didn't Photoshop her 'wrinkles, pores and unwanted facial hair.' I guess I can see both sides of this story. If you're writing a story that's unflattering about a national politician, does a pretty photograph match the tone of the story? Not really. On the other hand, Sarah Palin is a beauty queen who is not afraid to use her sexuality to get what she wants. To be frank, the girl's a hottie and really can't take a bad picture. I know from what I'm talking about on this, as I have an entire file cabinet of bad pix of myself. And in the matter of unwanted facial hair...first of all, if I was Sarah Palin I'd like to thank the boys in the RNC for pointing it out. But honestly, the girl obviously doesn't really have a problem there. If I leave my unwanted facial hair unattended for more than a few hours, I grow a Fu Manchu moustache that could make Hulk Hogan seriously jealous. Now THAT'S an unflattering story...

  • Meanwhile, John McCain has changed the new plan he slyly announced during the debate Tuesday night to buy bad mortgages so that it will be more generous to mortgage lenders and more costly to taxpayers. Shocker!

  • I feel so sympathetic for this woman. I have cried when I've accidentally purchased Dulce de Leche instead of Toasted Coconut and ended up with mousy brown hair. I don't want to leave the bathroom, let alone the house. It is very frustrating. I always just go to the store and buy new and start over. Which leads me to wonder...why do they name hair care products for desserts?

  • Anybody else looking forward to seeing Daniel Craig's 007 again soon?

Here's the situation....I'm on the second week of a diet and all I can think about is candy corn. The country seems completely divided as we hurtle toward an election day that is less than a month away. We'll have to decide between an untested-but hard-to-ignore young challenger and someone's Pepaw. Sarah Palin's patriotic political games make me angry. We're stuck in the mire of a complete economic collapse on a global scale. And my own personal odometer is about to click over to register another 10,000 miles of road wear?

What I really need is a break. What we all really need is a little trip back in the time machine. Back to a place where things were simpler and...funnier. And we knew they were funny because Johnny Carson laughed at them. With all kudos to Flip Wilson..."What you see is what you get..."

  • Who won last night's debate? Two out of three experts say it was 'that one.' The third expert must've been watching 'Dancing With The Stars.'
  • Celebrate Cinderellas! Good times! Esquire Magazine gives women over 40 their props by declaring on their cover that the sexiest woman alive is 42 years-old. "I share this title with every woman, because every woman is a nominee for it at any moment," she says.
  • A new documentary examines why so many women go to art school, but more men succeed as artists....hmmm, makes a girl think, doesn't it?
  • I'm fascinated by these kind of projects...definitely a book I want to add to my cue at the library.
  • I love birds. And it's sometimes hard to love birds when you live with a cat. I'm currently feeding a little hummingbird named Frank who hangs out around the pool at my building. He's one cool cat. Why is his name Frank, you might ask? It's the way he wears his hat.

Sarah Palin makes Keith Olbermann hot...and not in a good way.

  • Nicolette Sheridan is 44 years old. I'm on the fence whether I should compliment her and think of her as a role model or to succumb to the green-eyed monster of envy....Okay, I hate her.

  • Can you believe this chick? She's the president of the NOW/LA chapter and she's endorsing the McCain-Palin ticket. She says that Palin is the new face of feminism. Is she kidding me with this baloney? Obviously, all the botox she's had is keeping the synapses in her brain from functioning properly. Only in LA -- where style is so much more important than substance -- could this happen. Grrrrrrrr! BTW-- The Troopergate report is due on Friday.

  • One Stanford professor believes we're at the dawning of a new age. I hope it's the 'Age of Aquarius' because I know all the lyrics to that.

  • L.A. Dodger Manny Ramirez now appearing on the Lido Deck. Two shows nightly....and try the veal!

  • I've recently had some health issues and almost at gunpoint entered a doctor's office where I was forced to truthfully discuss my age, height and weight while shivering naked beneath a paper sheet. It is a humbling, if not, completely humiliating experience...but my doctor was really nice and I'm glad I found out what was wrong. I encourage all women, especially those over 40, to visit a health care professional and tell them the truth about your aches and pains. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month -- it's time to take those bad boys into be photographed!

  • Up 'til now I thought 'hockey hair' was a modified mullet that my little Red Wings wore under their helmets. Now it turns out to be a trendsetting upswept updo -- you didn't think she was managing that by herself did you?
  • Men who love cats are so much nicer and more complicated than men who only appreciate dogs. I love them both equally. The cats and the dogs, that is...
  • If Angelina and Brad have more children, she's going to need longer a chimpanzee.
  • Just in case you've forgotten about the Keating Five...the Obama campaign wants you to take a little trip down memory lane.

With a little help from Queen Latifah...Tina Fey does it again...
