Kate Walsh - Huh

I think something bounced up into my undercarriage.

Another interesting news article:

Whether women describe themselves as straight or lesbian, “Their sexual arousal seems to be relatively indiscriminate — they get aroused by both male and female images,” Dr. Bailey said. “I’m not even sure females have a sexual orientation. But they have sexual preferences. Women are very picky, and most choose to have sex with men.”

Pas de Deux of Sexuality Is Written in the Genes

However, I thought the most fascinating part was regarding the "fraternal birth order effect":

Two Canadian researchers, Ray Blanchard and Anthony F. Bogaert, have shown that having older brothers substantially increases the chances that a man will be gay. Older sisters don’t count, nor does it matter whether the brothers are in the house when the boy is reared.

The finding suggests that male homosexuality in these cases is caused by some event in the womb, such as “a maternal immune response to succeeding male pregnancies,” Dr. Bogaert wrote last year in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Antimale antibodies could perhaps interfere with the usual masculinization of the brain that occurs before birth, though no such antibodies have yet been detected.

The fraternal birth order effect is quite substantial. Some 15 percent of gay men can attribute their homosexuality to it, based on the assumption that 1 percent to 4 percent of men are gay, and each additional older brother increases the odds of same-sex attraction by 33 percent.

Hilary Duff - dorky (sing)

Keep your drink, just give me the money...

So y'all probably hate when I start talking about Ellen, because if I talk about something that rocked, you missed it already. However, you could catch the reruns on Oxygen....

Anyway, the point is I've watched the past four episodes and the highlights so far have been:
- Leah Remini, who is lovely and hilarious and called Ellen both an "ass" and a "bitch" (all in good jest, of course). Supposedly she had a mouth like a trucker, so I think she and I would get along well ;-)
- Gina Glocksen, my girl from Idol who was kicked off last week. She rocks and I totally just downloaded her 4 songs on americanidol.com at $0.99 a piece
- Kurt Russell...I forgot how funny and wonderful he is! And I still won't see Grindhouse, but I will look him up on Netflix and add some of his
- Pink, whose "I'm Not Dead" CD is currently on repeat in my car. I listen to it constantly, along with The Fray, and KT Tunstall
- Hilary Duff, who didn't have a great interview, but I adore her anyway. I might need to buy her CD (seriously, stop laughing!)

Cici - meow

Blow horns, you sure sound pretty, your violins keep movin' to the nitty gritty...

Ha HA!

I KNEW it had to do with outsourcing!!!

Clues to pet food recall traced to Chinese city

Granted, I said it partially as a joke for those* who are all up-in-arms over outsourcing (I hate the loss of American jobs as much as the next guy, but I also appreciate cheap clothing and other necessities)...but it is true. When you pay less money and use cheaper materials...you're going to get really poor quality. That's just common sense.

I'm just glad my kitty's food isn't deadly.
