Bring the beach to you

Crafty people will enjoy this, but so will those of you out there who are perhaps a bit craft-challenged.

Today is the first day of summer so think beaches, vacations, Sandcastles and summer fun.

Need a little help with the imagination flow? Go to the Beaches Family Resorts website and they bring the sounds of the shore to your desktop. Seagulls and ocean waves all you need is the sand beneath your feet and you are set.

This is such a cool feature on their site, but before I tell you about it go grab your kids because they are going to love this. Visitors to the site get to build their own Sandcastles online. It’s easy peasy to do, just follow the instruction and click away. When you are done it gets saved in a gallery and you get to name it! Plus you can also send it to your friends via email or you can save it as the wallpaper on the computer. So cool!

This is what mine looks like, I named it “Casa Crumbles” hahahaha…I crack myself up.

See how cute it is and there are many different ways to design your e-card. You can even add extras to it once your done. There are beach balls, flags, even a hermit crab! And while you wait for the Sandcastle to save there is a little beach ball you can hit around the screen to entertain yourself. =o)

Curiouser and curiouser

Isaiah Washington broke his silence about being fired from Grey’s Anatomy.

“Shonda Rhimes called me on Thursday of last week and told me that I would not be returning to the show,” Washington says. “Just like she personally called me and invited me to the show. It was full circle.”

Things got ugly after he apparently made a prejudiced comment to castmate T.R. Knight in regards to his sexuality. Washington apologized and went to a rehab to help him with anger management. But apparently ABC still considers him a liability and did not renew his contract for season four.

This explains the absurd ending to season three. In which Washington’s character broke up with his fiancée, Christina Yang (Sandra Oh) on their wedding day. It followed suit with the entire episode where nothing went well and everyone was depressed. Lovely.

Tear Jerker

MEREDITH: [narrating] “Disappearances happen in science. Disease can suddenly fade away, tumors go missing, and we open someone up to discover the cancer is gone. It’s unexplained. It’s rare, but it happens. We call it mis-diagnosis. Say we never saw it in the first place, any explanation but the truth. That life is full of vanishing acts. If something that we didn’t know we had disappears… do we miss it?”

I did not sleep a wink last night. And this morning my eyes are still puffy from having cried all night.

I was on an emotional roller coaster already, but after Part II of Grey’s Anatomy I completely lost it. I mean, I know the rumors were that a leading character was going to die and we all saw Meredith fall into the ocean last week. But I refuse to believe they are going to kill her. She is far too important to this show.

McDreamy is a mess. He pulled her out of the water and was unable to revive her. All of the characters acted very well last night, all of them looking truly devestated.

So. Part III is next Thursday and if I could I would demand they bring her back immediately. I’ll picket the show! Well. No, no probably not, but seriously it was very upsetting.

Izzie (though hurtful to George) was the bomb last night. I’ll see if I Can write more later, but it’s a busy, busy Friday!

I heart Will Smith

Oh it is no secret that I love Will Smith. Don’t act surprised.

But what you might not have known is that “The Pursuit of Happyness” is set to come out on DVDVD on March 27, 2007. And you better believe I have it pre-ordered!

And sooner than that, “Stranger than Fiction” will be out on February 27, 2007. Ummm…yes…I pre-ordered that, too. Consider it a late Valentine gift to myself. And the “The Pursuit of Happyness” can be a late birthday gift to myself. See. That makes it all okay…haha…right?


Laughing I do believe has some sort of scientific something or other that truly does make you feel better. At least a little bit.

So I’m still in my pajamas. I just opened a Coke, I’m eating mac & cheese out of a paper cup and I am watching “How I Met Your Mother.” My parents gave me season 1 on DVD and I am on episode 3 right now which is “Sweet Taste of Liberty.”

Let me tell you, this show is just hilarious. I could watch these episodes a hundred times and still have true laugh-out-loud moments.

The guys are Ted (Josh Radnor), Marshall (Jason Segel) and Barney (Neil Patrick Harris). The girls are Lily (Alyson Hannigan) and Robin (Cobie Smulders). The cast is just so great together, we’re talking witty dialogue and tons of chemistry.

I especially like some of the crazy dialogue from Barney.

For instance:

Barney: Ted, tonight we’re gonna go out. We’re gonna meet some ladies, it’s gonna be *legendary*. Phone-five!
[slaps cell-phone]
Barney: You didn’t phone-five, did you?
Barney: I know when you don’t phone-five Ted.

I mean you have to see it to really appreciate it, but it is hilarious. Especially to a girl who gives herself “self fives” all the time. A phone-five is soooo funny!
