Hey peeps, hope you had an ahmahzing weekend. Since Keith is still sunning his bunz in Savannah, he asked me to blog the ecard today. And, being the Photo Director here at fredflare.com, I couldn’t be more excited to present you our new camera collection. We’ve got tons of new updates of our fave LOMO cameras. The Diana camera now has a monster flash and the Holga has been relaunched in crazy fun circus colors. Bozo Buckets anyone. But I think the funniest new camera may be the two-way trick squirt cam! Yes, it squirts water… April Fools is tomorrow, after all!
OMG, I just love Nickelodeon’s Kid’s Choice Awards. It’s just so a-doorbell that there’s an award show out there celebrating what kids love! I love the celebs, the vibe and colors… Hello, Orange Carpet anyone? Destiny, I mean Miley Cyrus was the night’s biggest winner raking in the awards for Favorite TV Actress and Favorite Female Singer. Orlando Bloom totes got slimed and Shia LeBeouf and Harrison Ford were just too hawt for the hawt tub. Our Dream Boats, The Jonas Brothers won for Favorite Band and my fave BFF Cammy D took home the Wannabe Award. It’s all just too cute. For the complete list of winning slime ballz, click here!
Well, with all the rumors about Tyra leaving America’s Next Top Model, this new award show, The Fiercee’s was a bit of a surprise. Check out some pics from Tyra’s very first ANTM award show. I guess if it’s good enough for the Real World, it’s good enough for Top Mods. OMG, focus on Jade!
Can I borrow your glow-stick?!? I’m sure you all have seen this like one million times, but I just found it on the internetz and I love it… It’s Arnold Schwarzenegger, California’s Governor! I love the world! Go Arnold!
Okay, i’m so sick of fighting over this – so it’s up to the people! Which is it you guys? BERT and ERNIE or ERNIE and BERT? Which one is the right way to say it? Some say its E&B but others totally think its B&E! Tell me what you think… who ever gets the most votes wins and that’s what we will call them from here on out!
This weekend Keith and I held our second annual Spring get-together in Savannah, Georgia. (Last year, we visited Graceland.) Founded in 1733, Savannah has a rich history and a marvelously restored historic district to accompany it. There are gorgeous mansions, Southern oaks dripping with Spanish moss, monuments, parks, and references to such movies as Gone with the Wind, Forrest Gump, and Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.
But the truth is we didn’t choose Savannah to steep ourselves in its rich background. Originally we picked it because it was warm, sunny, easy to get to, and had a reputation for good food. Here we are in Forsythe Park amid the flowering shrubs and alabaster fountains, and we’re happy as clams.
Tomorrow it’s back to work, but we’re already talking about next year’s excursion. So if any of you have suggestions of places that meet our criteria,we’d love to hear from you.
Bellhop, Bellhop! I almost didn’t get to post this in time! But i just want to wish a warm and happy birthday to our fave funny lady Amy Sedaris!

You know me, I love new products, espesh edible ones! Amanda brought in a box of Frosted Flakes GOLD last week & we all kinda freaked. They’re really good!

OMG, I’m totally freaking out. The other day I reported the rumor that Tyra might be leaving America’s Next Top Model ’cause she’s feuding with Jay Manuel. This isn’t looking good… I totes got an email from New York Magazine yesterday reporting the same thing. That Ty Ty and Mister Jay are duking it out and that Tyra wants to focus on her talk show. NY Mag reported that Tyra wants to be taken seriously as a talk show host and ANTM is gettin’ in the way. I can’t believe this. Keith and I quickly thought who we’d ever even consider to take Tyra’s place, I mean she’s totally irreplaceable, but I thought Kate Moss would be fun. Keith thought she’d be too boooring. Tyra quiting and Kate booring??? What’s the world coming to?
I’m obsessed with Madonna, can ya tell? I always get this way when a new Madge record comes out. And now I can blog it. Okay, check out Madge gracing the cover of the new issue of Vanity Fair. She friggin’ looks FIERCE! Girl’s loving her big boots these days.
Her Madgesty also phoned in to NYC’s Z100 this morning… I could kick myself for missing it. Madge said she’s so sick of singing “Like a Virgin” and “Holiday”. She said she’d only sing ‘em again if you paid her like $30 million. Okay! She also admitted pumping up Britney’s “Black Out” during her pilates class! Ooh Ooh Baby!
Okay, we’ve already showed Adam Brody some luvin’ this week, but when I saw this outrageously cute pic of him with the dogs… I just couldn’t resisit. Check out Adam with his hands full, of pooches that is, in LA yesterday. Love it all… The risky biz, the vans and the pups. WOOF!
