It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Wonder Woman's New Costume

See what happens?  The moment I decide to go grocery shopping, breaking news develops!  When I got back, there was an email from my ex-boyfriend with a link to the new Wonder Woman costume.   

In February we learned that Adrianne Palicki was going to be starring as the title character to the show, and just this morning I showed you pictures of Elizabeth Hurley as Veronica Cale on the set of Wonder Woman.  As you can see there have been a few changes to the costume, the shiny new tights, the blue boots (instead of the red), the extended bracelets and the full blooded lipstick. 

Red alert! Or should we say blue? EW has obtained an exclusive first look of Adrianne Palicki as Wonder Woman — aka Diana Prince — from NBC’s reboot of the classic 1970s series. What’s different from what we’ve seen before? Well, how about those shiny blue pants? And blue boots instead of red ones? Compared to Lynda Carter’s get-up, this body-hugging extravaganza de-emphasizes the patriotism and seems to play up the comic’s Greek mythology. And a special shout-out to those bracelets! Wonder Woman is being remade by Boston Legal writer David E. Kelley, who has incorporated the superhero’s signature lasso, cuffs, and plane in the pilot. NBC promises the project, if picked up to series, will offer a serious, non-campy take on the DC Comics character. Along with Palicki, Elizabeth Hurley (Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me) and Cary Elwes (Saw, The Princess Bride) have joined the cast. Hurley’s character runs a pharmaceutical company that is creating a drug that makes people stronger while Elwes plays the CEO of Diana’s company, Themyscira Industries.
Honestly?  I don't know what to say.  I like it, but then again, I don't.  There is definitely no comparison when it comes to Lynda Carter's iconic costume, but I'm willing to give it a chance.  If it was any other writer besides the award-winning, David E. Kelley, I would probably fold after the first episode.  

I'm still in shock really, this is too much news to take in one week. With my queen killed off by her daughter on Tuesday, and Glee's Kurt & Blaine kissing on Fox, who knows how my weekend is going to end.

Zac Efron Skateboards With An Open Shirt and Even Hotter Body!

I don't get it... I thought they said he was getting fat?  He doesn't look fat to me, in fact, Zac Efron looks like a mighty fine piece of meat.  

The star of the "Lucky One" recently took a stroll on his skateboard through Manhattan Beach,  And nevermind that his new "tattoo" went viral on the internet 3 days ago.   

I'm sure my friend and co-worker, Rosa, wouldn't mind seeing additional pictures of our dreamy hunk here.

Post Secret Fridays - Issue 051

PostSecret is an ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a postcard.

smart, beautiful, strong, you're not supposed to stay

The comment is implying someone who stays is stupid, ugly and weak. It's victim-blaming. And it's disgusting.

Elizabeth Hurley on the Set of "Wonder Woman"

Elizabeth Hurley has been seen playing Veronica Cale in the new series due out in the fall, Wonder Woman.  And I already like it.  Hurley is absolutely stunning as she always has been.  Her character is a “beautiful, highly educated head of one of the biggest pharmaceutical companies in the country who is afflicted with serious deep-seated Wonder Woman envy.”

'Hurley tweeted from set:  “First scene in the can. Phew. … Er…..’in the can’ means ‘successfully completed’…..u knew that”

Plenty more photos of Hurley on the set of Wonder Woman here.

Judgement Day, May 21, 2011 - The Bible Guarantees It!

This is the hardest news I've had to take in recent memory!  This means Ryan and I will never reach our 6 year anniversary on May 23rd, never celebrate my Mother's birthday and Father's day ever again, and we just had our last Christmas in 2010.  But according to Family Radio, the end is nigh, The Bible Guarantees It!  And if you say it isn't true, they give you an answer to why it is.  So if I were you, I'd get your shit together.

Honestly, I love God, I believe in Him and I believe in the Bible.  I was baptized as a teenager and value my Christian roots, but there's something definitely wrong with this picture.  I also believe, that we have a loving, merciful God who loves us all, and in the end, he is The Decider.  The Lord's word has been interpreted by man over and over, where we follow some laws and some we don't; a Book of Books where we choose to believe what we want to believe, where one story is true and another one isn't.

I don't need Family Radio to tell me when the world is going to end, or be told gays are the reason the world is ending.  I have one sentence for them...

I choose to believe in God, and He chooses to believe in Me.

Little Creatures at The Houston Zoo Love Their Kiddie Pool

As temperatures rise in our area, not only will it affect us, but our little creature friends as well.  Over the past few days, Baylor and Tupelo have been cooling off in their kiddie pool; But Baylor at 1000 pounds and Tupelo at 600, it doesn't seem like its going to last very long.  According to the Houston Zoo website, the small inflatable kiddie pools do not last longer than 5 minutes without getting popped.  The two calves are now up to a family size one which will last them through 5 uses.  I guess water bombing is not a good idea, but these babies love 'em.
