In the cover photo, Bono is wearing the same glasses he had on when I met him (for 3 seconds) at the World Affairs Council reception.

What is that click? Am I being taped?

Oh and by the way, your e-mails and phone calls may be monitored - without your knowledge and without warrants- by the U.S. government. Apparently we now live in China WITHOUT ANY RIGHTS AT ALL.

Have a nice day.

Leo from "The West Wing" died!

This is very sad news! John Spencer, the actor who plays Leo on "The West Wing" died of a heart attack. I have not been watching the show much lately but when I do, I always enjoyed Spencer's character and acting.

"Syriana" and Golden Globes

Went to see the movie "Syriana" the other night, which stars my Fantasy Boyfriend, George Clooney. Enjoyed it, although I really have no idea what it is about.

Oil is bad, the U.S. government can be dirty and it hurts to be tortured. That is pretty much what I picked up from the movie. Still, I enjoyed it, in a confused way.


In happy, exciting, fabulous news - Clooney's movie "Good Night and Good Luck" picked up FOUR Golden Globe nominations today!!!!!!!! This includes Best Drama, Best Screenplay and Best Director. You know where I will be on Jan. 16!!!!! Parked in front of the TV! Clooney also picked up a Best Supporting Actor nomination for "Syriana," which shows that even though no one knows what is going on in the movie, we can all figure out that Clooney is a good actor in it.

Don't forget Rick Springfield will be back on GH!

My eighth-grade Fantasy Boyfriend, Rick Springfield, will be back on "General Hospital" tomorrow for four shows! He will do brain surgery! However, his character, Dr. Noah Drake, is also a drunk! So that will be tricky. Remember to watch!

Here is some background from AOL News:

Mr. Springfield, who lives in Los Angeles, was receptive to the offer. "I got a call from my agent one day, saying, 'Would you be interested in recreating your role for four days on 'General Hospital?' " he said. "I'm busy enough that I don't need to go back to work there, but I enjoy acting, and it certainly would work within what I want to do with music."

He began shooting his episodes at the beginning of November. The plot: Dr. Drake, who left Port Charles to become a neurosurgeon in Atlanta, is urgently needed at General Hospital to operate on a patient with severe brain damage. Unfortunately, Dr. Drake is less sober than he once was. "Things haven't gone well for Noah," Mr. Springfield said with a laugh.

The four days have turned into a longer storyline. "I think we all need to see how it pans out," Mr. Springfield said. "No one's going, 'Where do I sign?' or 'We're done.' "

And how does it feel to be back? "It's freaky," he said.
