news you can use #9: giveaway winner, THE ga, psychiatry, samba queen, cows in new zealand, and SVU v-day cards



the winner of my first ever giveaway is... juliana from a blonde walks into a blog.  congrats, m'dear!! 

{i hope you and the hubby luff them!}


THE ga and cydi lauper are the new faces for the M.A.C. AIDS fund.  seriously, y'all i'm obsessed.  thanks to my bff to this information.

{cyndi is sooooo lucky!!!!}


psychiatry's bible rewritten.  don't know what the psychiatric bible is?  it's the DSM - diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders.  kind of seems like it should really be called DSMMD, but what do i know.  according to an article from the washington post, "children who throw too many tantrums could be diagnosed with 'temper dysregulation disorder with dysphoria.'  and teenagers who are particularly eccentric might be candidates for treatment for "psychosis risk syndrome."  men who are just way too interested in sex risk being labeled as suffering from 'hypersexual disorder.' "  my questions to the DSM are: are you suggesting parents drug their children?  benadryl is an OTC drug, so i supposed that could work.  i don't know a teen who isn't a little weird.  AND what man isn't obsessed with sex??  i can only imagine what disorders i'd be diagnosed with according to the geniuses.

 the winter olympics start TOMORROW.  for the next two weeks my life will be pretty much booked.

seven year old samba queen.  seven year old, julia lira, gets the "ok" to be the samba queen at rio de jainero's carnival.  if you don't know what carnival is in south america, just think of mardi gras on steroids.  i dated a colombian guy and their carnival parties get cuh-ra-zzzzay.

{i have to admit, i'm really jealous.  i wanted to be samba queen this year!!}

new zealand has more cows than it does people.  this is for true.  "a record 5.8 million dairy cattle were counted in the year ended june 2009, statistics new zealand said tuesday — well more than one animal for each of the country's 4.3 million citizens."

{just because i know how much you all loved the cat tattoo.}

law and order: SVU has special valentine's day cards.  don't fret about sunday's big day.  you still have time to get your lover their very own v-day card compliment of my friends at l&o: svu.

{christopher meloni read my mind.}


praise sweet baby Jesus that tomorrow is finally friday.  this has been a hellacious week.

I love your news you can you posts :) Very informative. That tattoo sure is something else. Where do you find these things? lol. And why, to me at least, does cyndi look like bette milder from hocus pocus? lol

Stacy said...

You know what else is in the DSM? Intermittent Explosive Disorder, otherwise known as ROAD RAGE. Redonkulous. I took a class at Southwestern all about this kind of shiz...I forget what it was called, but basically, there's all kinds of random "diseases" in that book. Very silly if you ask me.

Rasha said...

Congrats to her and your post always make me laugh.
hurray for friday! tomorrow.

Cathy said...

SVU v-day cards! My hubs better read your blog today and see those and know that I want one.

Lady Ga and Cyndi are so cute together.

Where do you find the belly button tat pics, cuz I never want to visit that website.

Summer {Bisfor...} said...

those suv cards had me at hello.

saltsays said...

That person has the most disgusting belly button I have ever seen.

I LOVE that picture of Ga and Cyndi! Fantastic.

Looks like I'm going to have to challenge that 7 year old to a rap battle so I can get my Samba Queen crown back. (Says the girl that falls down in Zumba class.)

Julie (brown eyed belle) said...

My post for today has the Lady G and Cyndi pic! Great minds...Have a wonderful day, lovely!

Meredith Travels said...

I'm sending Stabler cards IMMEDIATELY!

Bathwater said...

So does this mean I have to give my glasses to juliana? That doesn't seem fair!

jessalyn said...

i don't know anything you said after you announced the winner because i can not read through my tears.

B-Dub said...

I watched the Ga on GMA, yeah Cindy was riding her coat tails then too. Ug. I wanted to reach out and touch her, only then I woke up and realized it was a TV show. Screwed.

And the cow? I can't decide if its worse than the cat. The cat had all the brown shading that made me queasy, this cow guy went with black and white schemes. I thank him.

carrie1 said...

La Ga actually looks decent in that picture.

And that guys enormous belly button just made me vomit in my mouth!

Meg said...

that picture with the cow on the guys belly is so frickin gross but "utterly" hilarious. HAHAH get it???!!!! wow. cheezy cheezy.

hotpants™ said...

Do you know what diagnosis I'd give a child who throws too many temper tantrums? Bad parents.

That belly hole has scarred me for life.

Big Boops said...

I'm getting a tatoo JUST like that! It will look great when I'm preggers with my next kiddo. Great post, this news was not wasted on me, I can assure you.

Marian said...

Ummm...how 'bout we exchange those SVU cards to each other;) I need to find them and I need to find them STAT.

Seriously, this week and the snow it has brought needs to be over now.

"Julie" said...

what i want to know is how weird your google search history must look like from googling "butt hole tattoos"

foxy said...

Dang it! First, I didn't win JennyMac's Jimmy Choo purse, then I didn't win your wine glasses. Luck has escaped me.

Those animal/butthole tattoos really freak me out.

Krista said...

Psychiatrists are frickin weird as crap and probably couldn't figure their way out of a wet paper bag, DON'T get me started on the Olympics, I can't frickin wait and am SOOO jealous that some of my friends are actually GOING! A seven year old samba queen? Really? Wasn't it just last year the samba queen was wearing a g-string made up of a 1 1/2 inch piece of "fabric"? What's the 7 year old going to wear? Scary. The butthole tattoos are frickin gross. Can you tell I'm going with a frickin theme here?

Monique-aka-Surferwife23 said...

First, I laughed out loud at Jess's comment. Second, I furiously nodded in agreement at Hotpants's comment and then I was sad because I thought for sure your title THE Ga was going to be the picture of Haley, and lastly I never thought I would be jealous of a 7 year old's legs. Sadness.

brooke said...

dude...the tattoos are HAUNTING ME!!!! who does this?!?! haha...

and yes friday is sooo calling my name...

ScoMan said...

I think it's funny that they rewrote that psychiatric bible. It's like.. it's been useful for all these years and suddenly they go "Wait.. that whole thing is a crock. Let's start over"

Have people changed that much?

Being Australian we have jokes about New Zealanders and sheep (being Australian jokes you can probably guess what they revolve around).. I guess now though we have to switch it to cows. Thanks for the heads up on that.

Juliana said...

WOOO HOOO baby! I am so freaking excited!!!! You have no idea! And...this post made me laugh!!!

Allyson said...

I'm a little sad Mac face that I didn't get the wine glasses because they are pure awesome. I did find some really cheap ones at HomeGoods yesterday, though, so perhaps I'll let it slide. And I found el cheapo champagne glasses so perhaps it will be Champagne Thursday instead of Champagne Friday...

Also? Going to Carnival is on my bucket list. Along with "run with the bulls" and "sleep with Johnny Depp"...

Kelly @ Dare to be Domestic said...

YAY FRIDAY! Darn I really wanted those glasses they are amazing! :)

Carnival sounds fun, but I would totally "settle' for Mardi Gras :)

Cyndi and the ga!!! NO WAY!!! LOVE IT!

bananas. said...

I was so stoked about the gaga lauper collab. Love them both something fierce and naughty!!! And for a good cause? Gosh they're good people :)

Congrats to the winner!

Taylor @ Jimmy Choos and a Baby Too said...

I love your news!

Karls said...

It's Friday here already! Jealous?

Oh and here's an interesting tidbit (seeing that we, as a country, are in steadfast competition with those cow loving Kiwi's) Australia has more than double the amount of kangaroo's than people. Suck on that NZ!

Barefoot in the Park said...

pete attacks his stuffed friends from tiem to time. and his bed. i really wonder if they are "talking back to him"

Ed Adams said...

I can't wait for the Olympics.

Ams said...

Look at you and all your fast facts.... I almost don't know what to do with all that information!! lol

The Only Girl said...

FYI - I'm taking Haley GaGa to the Olympics Opening Ceremony . . . how do you like me now!

Confessions of a Mother, Lawyer & Crazy Woman said...

The Law and Order cards?!!!!!!! Really?

Brown Girl said...

Holla for Fridays! And um, Lady Ga and Lauper rock my world. Saw them on GMA and I was star stuck!

SaraPlaysHouse.com said...

We must be friends because you love the Olympics. Amen.
And also, would it be wrong to send this link to my husband only because I really want a Law and Order Valentine? My concern is that he might get ideas from that cow tattoo. Decisions, decisions!

Carol {Everyday Delights} said...

haha! That cow is hilarious! Soo excited its Friday too! We made it!

Tracie said...

I love to read the DSM and diagnose family members.
