The CW has announced that the new 90210 will be debuting with a special two hour premiere on September 2nd!
Here’s a look at the new cast including Lori Laughlin who used to be Uncle Jesse’s girlfriend/wife on Full House.
Word is that all three of these ladies will be back…..
Now if they only had the good sense to bring back the sexiest man who ever graced the TV screen.
I’m gonna start the “Bring Back Dylan ” revolution. Wanna join me? We’ll all wear paste on sideburns and leather jackets and act all melancoly while we circle the producers offices on retro motorcycles until they cave and give us something to swoon over.
Luke Perry will always be my first love. Tee Hee.

Talullah has reached up and pressed her paw against my cheek. Like she’s soothing me from some unknown angst.
I thought it was the cutest thing ever until Todd got home and informed me he’s pretty sure it’s just another tactic she uses to show she’s actually the boss of me.
What a brat. Talullah, not Todd.

She’s about 17-ish. Ida know if that matters, but whateves…..
Me:”Hi!” (while placing a whole lotta meat on the belt counter thingy)
Checkout girl: “Are you having a party?” (eyeing all the meat)
Me: “No, I just have a husband who eats a lot.”
Checkout girl: “I thought you’d get some of those Hagen Das Ice Cream bars.” (Like she knows me?)
Me: “Uh…” (thinking….what do you mean you thought I’d get Haagen Dazs ice cream bars? Did I last time? I’ve never bought Haagen Dazs ice cream bars. Does she remember me from last time? This girl is strange.)
Checkout girl: “Well they’re on sale and everyone’s buying them.”
Me: “Ohhhhhhhhh.” (Now I’m getting it thinking maybe she’s not so strange.)
Checkout Girl: “Does your husband like tuna?”
Me:”Oh is it on sale too? I must’ve missed that.”
Checkout girl: “No it’s not on sale..I just wondered.”
Me: Umm…”Yes, he does like tuna.” (thinking….no, this girl IS absolutley strange and this very well may be the oddest conversation I’ve ever had..but what do I do…..I can’t graciously excuse myself..I gotta pay for the meat!)
Checkout Girl: “You have great hair.”
Me: “Thanks.” (I’m about to abandon the meat and make a run for it.)
Checkout Girl: “Your total is 123.96.”
I proceed to pay…
Checkout girl: “Well, have a great weekend with your meat.” (I swear this is ALL true!)
Me: “It’s Tuesday….” (smiling)
Her: “Oh yeah. Well than have a great Tuesday with your meat.”
Me: “You too.” (Now I sound crazy too!…At this point I am trying NOT to laugh out loud as I exit the store because I don’t want to make the poor girl feel strange….as if that’s possible.)
Imagine her surprise if she knew her wackiness was being blogged about and shared with the masses.
Okay now I kinda feel bad.
And I could totally go for one of those on sale Haagan Dazs bars I didn’t buy.

Some things I’d like to add to this list:
A toothbrush that is more than 6 months old…blech.
Socks and underwear from 1996.
The desire to eat a pound of fried ground beef by itself for lunch. That’s just not good.

I wanna see it again.
I lived in Toronto during college and hadn’t been downtown in quite some time. Like 8 years! As soon as I was there again…..I remembered how charming it is. Great food, great people, fancy cars, lots of energy, police on horseback, live music on the corners. It was good summer fun. We’re already planning another weekend in Hogtown later this summer.
Sooooooo…. any of you ladies (or guys!) who are going to see Dirty Dancing…you’ll love it. Extra music, extras scenes and so seriously sexy. I loved the movie because it had heartbreaking, wicked love and loss of innocence and it made me wanna save the world…..and dance….
The stage show does all that too.

Perhaps you’ve heard of this pricey phenomenon…”Dinner in the Sky?”
The concept is that for the low, low price of $20,000 you and 19 of your closest friends can be hoisted 140 feet in the air by a giant crane and then are left to dangle (strapped in by seatbelts) while someone serves you a gourmet meal.
Insert blank stare here.
I don’t get it. Are these people bored? Really hungry? Bored AND hungry? Didn’t want to wait in line to ride the new Behemoth at Wonderland?
I admit….the menu does look tantilizing….cornish hen with spinach and pesto…roasted vegetable terrine. But I’ll enjoy my haute cuisine with my feet firmly on the ground, if you don’t mind.
What if your salad blows away?
What if one had to use the *ahem* facilities?
How do you pass the salt when you’re strapped in like fighter pilot?
What if we run out of ketchup?
Here’s the link if you’d like to make a reservation.
