Jane Russell, star of '40s and '50s films, dies (AP) - The 83rd Annual Academy Awards� - Yahoo! Movies

Jane Russell, star of '40s and '50s films, dies (AP) - Rest in peace, Ms. Russell.

This is a clip from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, with Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell. In this scene, Russell (who was a sultry brunette) is pretending to be Marilyn Monroe's character.

Here is Russell singing "My Resistance is Low," with Hoagy Carmichael from The Las Vegas Story.

Hey Shark Navigator - wanna send me a freebie?

As I have written here many times - I love my Dyson.  That said, it isn't perfect and doesn't pick up dog hair in carpet as well as I would like.  I have been watching an infommercial for the Shark Navigator which claims to be great at picking up pet hair and that it doesn't get all wrapped around the brush, like on my Dyson.  So I figured it is worth a try to put out a request that someone send me one.  If it works as promised I will not only write a review here, but also at Amazon and elsewhere.

Hey, it is worth a try.  After spending a bunch of money on my new Dyson last year I can't really justify buying another vacuum simply because it claims to be better on pet hair.

Rush Limbaugh: Michelle Obama 'Doesn't Look Like' She Eats Healthy Foods (AUDIO)

Limbaugh chides Michelle Obama's looks:
I'm trying to say that our First Lady does not project the image of women that you might see on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue or of a woman Alex Rodriguez might date every six months or what have you."
Dahlings, like he should talk, ahem.

Politics aside, I think Michelle Obama is beautiful, and she dresses beautifully too. She's a woman. But even that shouldn't matter, as we know. Well, some of us know, Limbaugh doesn't. Oh cynical me, I think he does know, he doesn't care. He's an infotainment clown dishing the gossip to the cotton candy stuffing ignorant.

Miscarry? You're a Murder Suspect

Georgia state representative Bobby Franklin has introduced a bill requiring police to treat women who've miscarried as murder suspects:

Franklin wants to create a Uterus Police to investigate miscarriages, and requires that any time a miscarriage occurs, whether in a hospital or without medical assistance, it must be reported and a fetal death certificate issued. If the cause of death is unknown, it must be investigated. If the woman can't tell how it happened, than those Uterus Police can ask family members and friends how it happened. Hospitals are required to keep records of anyone who has a spontaneous abortion and report it.

Has the fanny pack returned?

I had to laugh at this one; I hate fanny packs. At work we're encouraged to wear them, or something akin to them but no one, and I mean no one, will wear one. A mutiny, I tell you. We wear cross body bags, or stuff things in our pockets, or whatever but fanny packs, no way. NO WAY. EVER. I do like some of these however, including the purple one. But they mostly seem just like cross body purses but lower, or, too thin to really hold anything.
