It was Bana-anas

So yesterday was just a typical Wednesday. I went to work as usual, and on my way home, ran into Eric Bana (Troy, Munich, Funny People), and ate dinner. Yes, I ate dinner.

Attending the NYC premier of "The Time Traveler's Wife," Eric was very nice, taking pictures with anyone who asked. I, who only had my phone, snapped this shot. Hot. Hot. Hot. Australian. Hot.
Roomie then ran into his co-star and one of our favorite actresses, Rachel Mcadams. You may know her from "The NoteBook,"Mean Girls" or "Wedding Crashers," but we know her simply as the girl who stole the heart of our man - Ryan Gosling. Heather said she was just as beautiful as person as she is on screen, and that she know believes her chances with Ryan are out the window. I say, "Phooey!"
Whether it be Roomie or me that Ryan would choose, I say we are more than woman enough to handle that gorgeous work of human art - afterall, we know how to shimmy-shake.



This post is long over due but proves if you put things out in the universe anything is possible.

When Carly and I first moved to NYC and realized our office is located just blocks from Bar Americain, we knew our dreams of meeting Bobby Flay could be a reality. That's right, the ginger throwdown grill master Iron Chef could cross our paths at any moment if we were lucky. Well, it didn't magically happen but we kept hope alive. I mean, I even created a Bobby Flay cupcake during my office's Halloween cupcake decorating contest. Again, putting it in the universe. Delish!

But then, on June 23rd it happened and we got to meet one of our FoodNetwork favorites. Hello Bobby...

My favorite part of the experience came from Carls who said to Bobby - we are the roomies, you should meet us, we love you. haha. Ain't that the truth. The stars really did align.

Thanks to Betty Boop for taking the pic. ;)


Will he ever forgive me?!

Umm...in a strange turn of events, I didn't go see my future husband at the Letterman show today...just steps from where I work. I took the day off to do my best to see him, and failed. I'm now at home and am actually feeling under the weather. I think I may skip trying to stalk his entry to the show (on 53rd). Gasp! I know...I know. First I don't go to Jones Beach last week, then I don't even see him next door to work...what is wrong with me?!

Dave, I'm sorry, and I love you. My tummy hurts, it looks like rain is coming, and I didn't get tickets. Sometimes you have to meet me in the middle...like Paul did. Play the marquis already!

Anyways, I'll be watching you tonight - see you in Fresno and Chi-town.


Dancin in the street

Too funny and forgot to mention...

On my way into work yesterday morning, I had the pleasure of walking behind a girl about my age who was illustrating the power of morning music. She had her iPod with her and was dancing along to it as she walked. And not just a toe-tap or finger-snap here and there, it was literally a show stopping performance.
There was one point where I actually had to back up because she had stopped in her tracks and was doing a side step move - all while shaking her head to the music. Arms were flailing, hips were shaking, it was a sight to see for sure! I'm pretty sure parts of her dance were choreographed.
What made it the most strange/awesome was that she would bust a move on an 8-count (or I assume an 8-count) and then continue walking as if nothing had happened. Then she would bust out again, and proceed as before. This went on until I crossed the street and escaped her dance party. Mind you, this is all before 9:00 am.
I did want to make sure to note however that she was no Roomie who blew away MS&L yesterday afternoon.


My Roomie Can Dance...Dance...Dance

Watch Roomie at the MS&L Talent Show working it out with Brian! Work. It. Out. You think you can dance? Well I KNOW my Roomie can dance!

Video coming soon - technical error.

Ever hear the one about the rabbi...

This has to be one of the best/saddest stories of all time! I can't even make this up...rabbis and politicians selling kidneys...

"Three New Jersey mayors, two state lawmakers, a deputy mayor and five rabbis were among 44 people charged Thursday" for being allegedly involved in money-laundering and an illegal human organ-selling ring.

Oh this is just too rich. Can't even make any funnies on it...the story speaks for itself.
Read the whole story here:


Hometown proud

Well it didn't take Lincoln, IL as long as I thought to make it into Perez Hilton, but guess I always assumed I'd be the one to make it on there due to my high profile romance with Dave Matthews. Instead, this dude beat me to the punch...suppose there's always People.com

Oh and I know what you're thinking...and NO he wasn't my prom date...that is, at least for my Junior prom date...
