‘Tis the Season for Friendship & Strongly Worded Letters

LeMare has always been a fiercely loyal and protective friend. After rooming with my older sister at BYU, she quickly became friends with every single member of my family. From Krispy Kreme camp outs in Orem to all-you-can-eat brunches in Wisconsin, LeMare became a part of our family fabric and a trusted advisor in uncertain situations. When my younger sister was faced with a school decision, LeMare wisely doled out the following letter to her 13-year old pal (unearthed just today from the archives):

10/24/01

Ween,

JL tells me of your desire to attend boarding school in McLean. I will have none of this. Do you understand how adversely this would affect your mother? Oh, Ween, it would be devastating. Plus, you’ll live with all sorts of weird kids who aren’t members of the church and there wll be peer pressure and before you know it, all your friends are little hellions like Dwighto’s were in high school.

Additionally, you were not meant to eat cafeteria food. Do you know what they put in Meatloaf and Salisbury Steak? Neither do I, Ween, neither do I. And your special meal of the week would be Chicken Cordon Bleu from a frozen little package. And the pie would be nothing other thn instant pudding mix thrown in a pre-made graham cracker crust…Try, if you will, to comprehend the repercussions after a meal of deep fried chicken and broccoli from the freezer. I don’t wish to further explore the associated tragedy!

Anyhow, there are numerous reasons why I think you should stay at home (live in your nice house where your mother cooks lovely meals and parents go to fine restaurants regularly). Oh, think of subjecting yourself to dorm life at such a vulnerable age.think about not being able to take a shower without wearing flip-flops.  Think about how tiny and sparsely decorated your room will be. Then think about Chez Vous. Ours are the only feet in your shower. And your room is decorated in the finest of tastes, no doubt. Ween, there is no reasonable explanationfor inflicting this malarchy on me and your family.

Sincerely,

LeMare

I Spy an Ex-Apprentice Contender

pc050009Nothing like the Lakers to bring out the greatest reality TV villain of all time. It’s been years since Omarosa was on The Apprentice, but that didn’t stop me from still feeling mad at her for that one task where she claimed to have a concussion after a chip of plaster hit her head.

pc050010Getting the evil eye for my paparazzi skills.

pc050011Yep, it’s definitely her.

pc050026Now, onto some more shady interesting characters. Here we have Kobe Bryant on the floor.

pc050031To the right of Kobe’s right elbow, there are three Redskins players in the front row. White men most likely answering to the name Chet made a habit of running up to them at every time out to talk game.

pc050035Gilbert Arenas, the star of our humble local team, may be out for the season but it doesn’t stop him from dressing in this early 20th century banker’s ensemble.

pc050013Michael Wilbon, Washington Post columnist and Pardon the Interruption host.

pc0500231This might explain why the Wizards haven’t been winning much these days.

pc0500241They are too busy checking out the Kiss Cam.

RIP, Sophia. This slice is for you.

Estelle Getty, Sophia Petrillo, on the golden girls has “gone to the big lanai in the sky” (according to TMZ).  She was 84 years old, just 3 days shy of her 85th birthday.

IRF reveres our favorite Sicilian and perhaps we need to go back and review IRF’s Tribute to the Golden Girls

I think all of us will sit around the kitchen table tonight, in our robes, having a slice of cheesecake in your honor.

One of many side hugs of the night for David Cook.  A fan has scribbled a message on his fedora.

Backstage at American Idol

Through our special correspondents in L.A., we have been privileged to bring you inside peeks at Hollywood. The latest pictures come from The Train (my sister and new sister-in-law to the dazzling newlywed Kirsten). The Train attended the American Idol concert last night and got one of 100 backstage passes. It helped that The Train’s concert companion is good friends with Brooke White and her husband. Behold, your Idols!

The tweens went crazy for David A.

Odd Bedfellows

Total Gym Direct is endorsed by an interesting trio of celebrities. You have Chuck Norris, a guy who has become a huge conservative, followed by Christie Brinkley, a woman in a nasty public divorce. Then to top it off, you have Wesley Snipes, a tax denier with a pending prison sentence.

Now in their defense, Mario Lopez was already taken, but c’mon marketing geniuses.
