We are a much smaller crew today and so we have all moved into this one corner of the office and have cranked up the AC. Diane, who's normally out in the warehouse, now processes everything on the empty desk behind me. Welcome to the neighborhood!
Oh, I thought I had it bad! Paris has to go to friggin' jail for chrissakes! Whether y'all think she deserves it or not, it's still gonna be so hard. I mean, you guys know all these people quit last week and yesterday was like the hardest day of my life. Keith, Jen & I really hit the ground running to get into the departments where the people were leaving and run them. And let me tell you, they were a mess. The 3 people couldn't take our perseverance and intensity and decided to not complete their term and didn't come back today! Yeah, I totes yelled, a lot... but that's part of my charm and seriously, what would you expect! We're going thru a difficult time and just trying our best to keep things running. Yowsah, what a week! But I still have my "other" girls to lift me up! Yes, my starlets! I really am relooking at the world and how these girls get treated. It's hard out there and you just do your best to cope! And if Paris wants to buy church books for real or even for show and if it makes her get thru the day, I say do it! Everyone out there, seriously, in any difficult sitch there is a silver lining. I know I sound like a totes Polly Anna, but everything happens for a reason and that which does not destroy us makes us stronger. And I believe that about what's happening her at fred! We are doing HOT things and you're either in or your out! I AM coming to terms with this and getting stronger everyday and buh, bye to all the drama babies! This is our legacy! Phew, that was intense! Okay, I also have to say how much I love that Paris is toting around a Dior bag with her church books! It makes me so happy! Okay, I gotta go ship all your awesome orders now!!!
Wow, I know that Mischa was all sickinz on Memz Day... Mixin' her meds with booze, not the best idea. But seriously, check out these fantastically glamazon pix that she took for the July issue of French Elle. Dang, those Frenchies really know how to partay! Mischa looks absolutely fabulous portraying various Hollywood icons like Louise Brooks and Marlene Dietrich (seen above)! Misch, you are incred and this gives me hope yet that the young starlets will prevail! I just can get enough of those eyebrows, zing!
See there is good in the world! Competitors can be besties! Check out this on air kiss that American Idol winner Jordin Sparks placed smack dab on the lips of runner-up Blake Lewis on MTV's TRL. I have to say, those two are gonna do great! I've already downloaded all the Jordie and Blake tunes available on iTunes and I just can't listen to Jordie's "The Rhythm Is Gonna Get You" enough! Hey you 2 cuties, can't wait for your hits to start piling up!
You must think all we do around here is eat. Yeah, so? Last week, though rather bad on the staffing front, was actually GREAT on the snacking front, particularly in the PIE realm. On Tuesday Chris Uphues was here painting hearts and also a supercute writer from the New York Post came by so Jen threw together a lil' impromptu pizza party. Amoré! Then on Thursday Jen's parents were in town from Ohio and her mom made us the most delicious life-changing pie you've ever dreamed of in your entire life. Hi Pat & Patty! Um, we love your daughter and we love you:) So great to hang out on Fri!!
I love the internet and all the lovely things she brings to me.
like this amazing Punchneedle clown couple, someone made this and that makes me so happy!

Oye, these girls! I've never seen the celebuntes in such turmoil as they are now! First Britterz went a little nutz, then Paris is going to jail, Mischa got hospitalized and now Lindz is in a downward spiral and off to rehab. What's gonna happen next? Hopefully, great music, fun movies and wonderful projects! Seriously, that's why we LOVE you girls, not because of your debacherous ways. Well, even though many of Brittez fashion choices may seem really questionable, she really does seem to be doing way better. She even started reflecting and released a new message on her fan site. Here's the word, according to Britters...
Okay, okay, I totes know that you all LOVE Adam Brody. Like everytime I blog about him, y'all freak out. I love it so much! Okay, here's more to freak out about. Check out our Captain Emo as he flew into Vienna to party down at the Annual Love Ball, Europe's largest AIDS benefit! I so am swooned that Adam is such a good charity supporter! I still haven't seen him wearin' his fred thread yet! Com'on Adz, show us some love!
To get the eff off the junk! This is the best news I got today. It's official, Lindsay Lohan has checked herself into Promises Rehab Center in Malibu! Oh Lindz, this is gonna be great for you! Britterz has really come out of there with a full force smile and a great attitude! Lindz was also supposed to start filming her new film Poor Things (hmm, how apropos), co-starring Shirley MacLaine and Olympia Dukakis. Whoops, looks like that's on hold! Seriously Lindz, get better! We're all rooting for ya... Even Herby is!
