I’m pleased that the women’s U.S. soccer team will get a Manhattan ticker-tape parade next week Friday in celebration of its World Cup win. View image | gettyimages.com On the other hand, if I were on the team, I might be thinking, “Fuck the ticker tape … where’s my money?” As has been widely reported, […]

Okay, it’s not exactly Katy Perry. But it is a purry kitty! And, as you can see, FitzRoy the Cat has glittery shoes and a funny blue shark, just like Katy! My photos of the real Katy Perry in concert last year are here. And there are hilarious “Left Shark” memes here.

The most exciting parts of last night’s Super Bowl for me were Joe Namath’s coin toss and Bruno Mars’s halftime show featuring the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The game interested me less than usual — I wasn’t even sure that was possible — and I was underwhelmed by a lot of the ads. Radio Shack’s […]

I don’t normally watch the Super Bowl for the fashion (I watch it for the ads), so I was pleasantly surprised to see 70-year-old football legend Joe Namath defying the relatively warm New Jersey temperatures in a hooded fur coat. During halftime, brand-new Grammy winner Bruno Mars wore gold. Anthony Kiedis and Flea of the […]

A week ago today, I was enjoying my annual Pimm’s Fest with my gorgeous London blogger friends. The fest started in 2008, when I met up with Sharon of Thrift My Style and the lovely lady behind the since-abandoned Times of Glory blog to shop Trudie Styler’s castoffs (why didn’t I buy more?! I’ve got […]

Like more than 108 million other people, I was glued to the television on Sunday, watching the Beyonce concert. You know, the big performance that was preceded by football, and followed by quiet naptime and then more football. I agree with Beyonce that the show was “Gone With the Wind fabulous!”  I was thrilled by […]

I’ve posted before about the reasons I still read newspapers on actual paper. For instance, in 2010, I wrote: “I enthusiastically use teh Interwebs to stay informed, but I’m highly aware of how easy it is to select only what you want to read. That’s why I read on paper too. The mere act of […]

I normally have no interest in sports, but I enjoyed the Olympics so much that I’m sad to see it end. The swimming, diving, and gymnastics were my favorites, though I liked track and field too.  I preferred watching the women’s competitions. You can catch men playing sports on television every day but where besides […]

Swimmer Michael Phelps won his 20th medal at the London Olympics yesterday, but one could argue that his 19th, earned on Tuesday, was a bigger moment. That’s when he became the most decorated Olympian of all time, passing the previous record-holder, Soviet gymnast Larisa Latynina, who won 18 medals between 1956 and 1964. If you […]

I’m not much of a sports fan, but there are a few athletes who impress me. One is basketball Hall-of-Famer Walt “Clyde” Frazier, who is one of my official style icons. Now I’ve added hockey great Wayne Gretzky to my list of people who give good advice. I was struck by one of his classic […]
