Golden Divas

The Golden Globe Nominees have been announced, but that’s not why I’m excited.

The real thrill will be watching the two HOTTEST comediennes around, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as the hosts of this year’s show. I plan to tune in on January 13th to watch what will probably be the funniest and most fun anyone has ever had at the Globes!  and I love Ricky Gervais but he’s got nothing on these gals.

John Lennon 1940-1980

If someone thinks that love and peace is a cliche that must have been left behind in the Sixties,

that’s his problem. Love and peace are eternal.


Bjork is Back!

The 55th Annual GRAMMY nominations were announced last night. Some interesting surprises and omissions (as usual).

For the full list, go here.

The GRAMMYS used to give out awards in 107 categories! It was quite  a chore to look through all of the nominees in each category (do the math!). But last year they decided to trim them down to 81, a much more civilized number. Even so, only about 12 awards are actually given out live on TV (February 10, 2013 on CBS).

My thoughts: The usual suspects were nominated in R&B and for album and song of the year. No surprise to see Jay-Z with 6 nods, The Black Keys. or Taylor Swift.  Nice to see Maroon 5 on the list, as well as Frank Ocean and Kelly Clarkson.

Best Pop Solo will be interesting: Adele vs Kelly will probably cancel each other out  (as will Katy Perry and Rhianna) and Carly Rae Jepsen may take that category. Traditional Pop was the most boring list I’ve ever seen! Two Christmas CDs and Paul McCartney. That was it! They were only able to find THREE artists for that category? Music is in a sad state. JMHO

But wait! Bjork is back! That’s right, in the Alternative Music Cat. she was nominated so all is right with the world (I think).

Meanwhile, First Lady Michelle Obama was nominated for her Spoken Word album American Grown. I would love to see her show up to the Grammys, wouldn’t you?

What are your thoughts about the noms?  PS  I heard about the UPROAR today that Justin Beiber received NO nominations. Go light that candle in mourning…an then get over yourself.


Dear Miss Know It All

Send your questions to:


Dear MKIA,

l am not sure if you can even help me with my frustration at work but here it goes! My boss recently had a routine teeth cleaning scheduled with her longtime dentist. Unbeknownst to me, she had also scheduled on her own a follow up meeting with her dentist to talk about prior dental work and the future. I got a call the day of the appointment to say the doctor wouldn’t be there, however, the dental tech who was ready to do the cleaning was, so I kept the schedule as it was and didn’t say anything, thinking it wasn’t important. Well, you know what happened next, of course. Boss lady gets there, finds out the change while sitting in the dental chair, and gets up and leaves, refusing to have her teeth cleaned. I get ripped later at the office when she returns for not telling her the doctor wouldn’t be there.
This kind of stuff happens all the time and it just frustrates me and makes me question why I still come to work every day. Help!

Congrats to the Royals!

Word has officially come down from the Queen of England that her son Prince (now Duke) William and daughter in law, Duchess Kate Middleton are expecting a child next year.

Is it wrong to hope they have a little diva? A baby princess would be so adorable!

Of course, wishing them a healthy child, no matter what, but it has been a long time since an heir to the throne has had a girl.
