Ashton & Demi in Des Moines???

Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore were in Des Moines at Aura. It doesn't sound like Demi was very nice to the friendly Des Moinesians who requested pictures of the couple. And then Ashton couldn't get a helicopter to fly in and pick them up. Come on grew up in freaking Homestead, IA...come back down to earth would ya? Hopefully Demi doesn't eventually dump her boy toy or Ashton might end up back in Homestead reminiscing about the days when he was famous. Don't forget where you came from Kutcher.

She has the best Job ever!!

Natalie Jackson of Motorcycle Freedom probably has the best gig on the planet. She gets to ride amazing motorcycles and gets to meet amazing biker people. I just watched a free MagRack show that she hosted about the Ventura Chopper show in honor of David Mann. She got to see Mann's incredible biker art and she interviewed up and coming chopper builders. She even got to interview bad boy Russell Mitchell of Exile Cycles. Lucky her!! Hats off to Natalie Jackson, one happening biker chick!

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants was an excellent flick. A total must see chick flick! It was refreshing to watch and made me cry in all the right places. Guys beware...I'm sure it will make you yawn but it would also be the perfect opportunity to snuggle close with your female loved one and comfort her when she cries during the touching scenes. :)

Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants gets 5 stars!

Pink - No More Stupid Girls!

I would like to give a big round of applause to Pink! Her song "Stupid Girls" rocks and I think it let's the world know how a lot of girls and women in America feel. Women are so much more than just looks. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy looking good but I also want to be recognized for my brain.

Melinda & Candace

I had the most enjoyable night last Wednesday. My friend Melinda and I went out for dinner at the Court Ave Brewing Co. and then went to the Civic Center to hear Candace Bushnell speak. Melinda is a great woman and someone I really look up to and Candace Bushnell wrote my favorite HBO Series of all time, Sex and the City. It was a wonderful night. What cracked me up the most though was the amount of people that must have been offended about what Ms. Bushnell was talking about, because they got up and left the speech. I think it's a great idea to either go to something like that with an open mind or to do a little studying up on the speaker you are going to listen to. She wasn't even that raunchy but I keep forgetting we are in conservative middle America. Plus if you have never seen the Series Sex and the City you really wouldn't know what she was talking about 1/2 the time so why waste your time. ha! She said one thing that the character Carrie Bradshaw said in the Series....You really need to take good care of your relationships with your girlfriends because they are people you can almost always count on but men in your life will come and go. It's too bad that you don't learn that when you are a teenage girl and boy crazy. I don't know how many times I brushed my friends aside for some stupid boy who dumped me a few weeks later. I would go crawling back to my friends who I'd abandoned, they'd take me back but after a few more times of doing this they kind of wrote me off. I don't blame them one bit though. I think I have the best friends that I've ever had at this point in my life. My friend Michelle from work is a great friend and I cherish my friendships with the gals in Art Group. Anyway...back to Candace Bushnell, I really enjoyed her talk. It was great to see her and hear what she was really like. She's definitely a New Yorker. The best part of the night though was the fact that Melinda shared her extra ticket with me and that we had a really nice conversation at dinner.
