hey health care, it’s about time.

President Obama’s health care bill, which will provide millions of uninsured Americans with medical coverage, was passed tonight by Congress after months and months of struggle.

FINALLY!

The bill was passed 219-212.

sandra bullock and jesse james, NOOOOO!

Sandra Bullock is perfect.  She is a fantastic actress, self-deprecating, hilarious and gorgeous.   Although she seemed to be completely out of her husband’s league, they were so adorable together and seemed so in love, it didn’t matter.

And still, he cheats.

WHY DO GUYS WHO LOOK LIKE THIS:

CHEAT ON WOMEN WHO LOOK LIKE THIS:

WITH WOMEN WHO LOOK LIKE THIS:

Devastating.

do you think sjp is ugly?

Nothing sparks debate like watching the red carpet coverage at the Oscars.  Ok, that might not be entirely true, but it does start some interesting conversations.  This year?  How ugly Sarah Jessica Parker is.

Girls love her for the obvious reasons, and apparently guys think she’s hideous.  In fact, I was told that she gets a 3 on a 10 point scale and a 0 on a 1 point scale (1 I would sleep with her, 0 I wouldn’t).

I was also shown this website, sarahjessicaparkerlookslikeahorse.com

Equal parts terrible and hilarious, so I wanted to share.

my favorite thing about valentine’s day…

It’s almost Valentine’s Day and that can only mean ONE thing.  Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman’s Kay Jeweler commercials are back!  Please, find me one person who watches this commerical and DOESN’T think about Jane Seymour as the motor boatee in Wedding Crashers.  Here it is:

now try not to think of this:

Happy Friday, everyone!

superbowl ads going conservative this year?

If you are like me, you watch the Superbowl to eat unlimited snack foods, drink some beers and watch the commercials.  I may pay attention for the first quarter or so, but then I eat, drink and socialize until the commercials come back on.  And it’s glorious.

This year, it looks like CBS may be putting a conservative spin on the commercials. Uber-religious Tim Tebow and fam will be featured in a “Celebrate Family, Celebrate Life” ad discussing how Tebow’s mom’s doctors in the Philippines suggested she had have an abortion when she fell ill while she was pregnant with Tim.  [Spoiler alert!] she didn’t.  The ad has been paid for by Focus on the Family, who’s founder has said that gay marriage will “destroy the Earth.”  Ugh.

On the other hand, CBS rejected an ad from mancrunch.com, a gay dating website.  “After reviewing the ad, which is entirely commercial in nature, our standards and practices department decided not to accept this particular spot,” said CBS spokeswoman Shannon Jacobs.  Jacobs also said the ads were practically sold out when they reviewed mancrunch’s concept, where two men passionately make out after their hands brush on their way to the chip bowl.  Riiiiight.

Come ON CBS.  I want more commercials like this:   Not ones that take a stand.

Regardless, I’ll be there on Superbowl Sunday, solo cup in hand, covered in chip crumbs, just waiting it out until the next commercial.

not a puppy, but still cute.

I don’t dislike cats, but I just don’t really understand them.  The cats I’ve interacted with seem apathetic to the existence of all humans.  I want them to be dogs, and they aren’t.  But I’m sure that’s why cat lover’s love them.

Regardless, this video is pretty adorable.

Just a tip, watch it on mute.
