Emmy Fashion – Let’s Have some Fun!

Posted in Uncategorized on August 30, 2010 by darmyers

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you know it will be 16 months on Wednesday that I have had the television unhooked.  I always said, when I start to miss it, I will get it again.  But guess what, for the most part, I haven’t missed.  What television are calling ‘stars’ these days, I’m sorry, Katherine Hepburn was a star, a person on a reality tv show is not a star. 

That’s not to say I haven’t missed a few components, like Awards Shows.  I love watching the Oscars, the Golden Globes, the People’s Choice, and yes the Emmy’s.  So while I didn’t get to see the actual broadcast, you can’t miss the Emmy Fashions, thanks to the Internet.  So, I’m going to have a bit of fun and tell you what I thought.  You can certainly let me know if you agree or disagree.  It will be fun!

Best Dressed in my Opinion. (After all, that is what this blog is called)

So, Clare Danes, Lea Michelle, Sofia Vergara, Anna Paquin and Julianna Marguiles rocked it!  Big Time.

Kim Kardashian and Kelly Osbourne – great dresses – when wearing white you should wear a bra.

Heidi Klum – Love you, Love the Legs, but you need to start dressing your age.

What were you thinking goes to Keri Russell in that ill-fitting pink dress – Not a good choice for you.  And Emily Deschanel – Barney went out of style years ago… stay away from Purple Barney looking dresses.

Eva Longoria Parker, although you looked classic in black, it was a little boring, a little predictable and been done before.  A little disappointing.

Anyway, you can let me know what you thought!

Alan Jackson rolls through Newfoundland with the Freight Train Tour

Posted in Uncategorized on August 28, 2010 by darmyers

It was full steam ahead as Alan Jackson played to 3 sold out nights at the Mile One Centre in St. John’s recently.    The multi award winner – too many to mention – wowed the crowd with all the fan favorites, while at the same time throwing out numerous guitar picks as souveniers.  You name it, he sang it.  From older favorites like ‘Don’t Rock the Jukebox’ to his heartwarming tribute to the 911 attacks ‘Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning’ to future favorites from his latest CD ‘Freight Train’.

Jackson, who turns 52 this coming October 17th, was the true professional, entertaining the audience from the time he walked on stage with a bottle of water in his hand, to his encore, when he took the time to sign as many autographs as he could.

Well done Alan Jackson!

Summer is but a fleeting Moment!

Posted in Uncategorized on August 20, 2010 by darmyers

It’s a moment that I’m after, a fleeting moment, but not a frozen moment.
Andrew Wyeth

And with that quote from Andrew Wyeth, I realize the end of summer is just around the corner, and before I know it, there will be more frozen moments in my day than warm ones.  But that’s a part of life when you live in the North.   Although it is August, already I have to put on a long sleeve fleece to barbecue in the evenings.   And as I read about heat waves in other parts of the country and in the United States, I can’t help but wonder how it came to pass us by.  I have had the fan on in my house three times this year. 

However, as sad as I am, realizing that while I was waiting for Summer and the warm weather, the summer months has passed by.  How was your summer?  Did you do anything memorable?  I recently heard that the older you get, the faster time flies.  That makes me really old I guess… Summer flew by really fast.

Enjoy
