Happy New Year’s Eve, Pineapple fans! It’s a beautiful day so far, but promises to be in the 20s at midnight when we ring in the new year. Brrr! Why are the nights when you’re supposed to dress the skimpiest always the coldest? Nothing makes me want to put on a party dress less than frigid temps. Oh, well…tis the season!
Have you been thinking about your New Year’s resolutions? They are such a great idea, yet always seem so hard to keep. I think I may do something easy, like “Breathe every day.” That way I can’t fail. Or we could all take a page from Lionel in “Waiting to Exhale” and instead of making resolutions once a year, make affirmations every single day. Sort of like Stuart Smalley. Or perhaps…Jessica. Click HERE to see; for some reason the video didn’t feel like embedding properly. It’s cute, you’ll like it.
I recently saw Jessica, who is now a teenager, on Tosh.0, and she still likes to make enthusiastic affirmations in the mirror, although she doesn’t stand on the bathroom counter anymore.
We thought this week would be a quiet one here at Pineapple HQ, but it has been the opposite! Barlow has been churning out some new creative for multiple clients, and Adam has been finishing up loose ends before the new year. Unfortunately, Adam has been down and out with the flu, most likely. He’s been keeping a low profile the past few days. Please send lots of get well vibes to Miss Adam; we need him! We hope he is back in top form by next week, when we have several meetings to attend, both here and on the road. I’m now glad that I cleaned early this week; it wouldn’t be the same without Adam here to help me. Wow, I can almost type that with a straight face. Just kidding, Adam…I appreciate your help when it’s given!
2010 has been a crazy year. And according to the Top 10 Most Searched Items on Bing, our celebrity-addiction was fueled this year. Our hopes for celeb romances faded as we saw infidelity among the likes of Tiger Woods and Jesse James. (James’ jilted sweetheart, Sandra Bullock, was Bing’s #2 search term, after celebutante/entrepreneur Kim Kardashian.) There were also plenty of Hollywood deaths this year. Children of the ’80s, like me, were sad to hear of the loss of both Gary Coleman and Corey Haim. (Who didn’t love the Coreys?) Two actors from one of my favorite all-time movies, “Airplane!”, both passed away this year: Leslie Nielsen and Peter Graves. (“Billy, have you ever been in a Turkish prison?”) We also said good-bye to two leading ladies from ensemble sitcoms, Dixie Carter (Designing Women) and Rue McClanahan (Golden Girls). Both shows were a great part of my childhood, and I watched re-runs of the Golden Girls all the way through college. It was a busy year in Hollywood, that’s for sure. Here’s to a happier 2011!
