Giving Thanks for Paris Hilton, Jimi Hendrix and Richard Simmons

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and although I'll be spending most of the morning trying to produce a reasonable facsimile of Kim O'Donnel's tofu pumpkin pie (Kim also has some fab-looking lard-inclusive recipes), I'll try to remember to pause and be thankful for the good things in life: - Waking up to stories like Paris Hilton Parties Till She Pukes and heart-warming pictures, like this of Bai Ling, nemesis to stylists everywhere. Truly, I am the luckiest girl in the world. - The knowledge that icons are able to endorse products from the grave. For instance, Jimi Hendrix, whose name is being used to sell Hendrix Electric Vodka, a 100 percent grain vodka. Visit his official Web site for promo photos of bikini-clad blondes and recipes, like the Foxy Lady or the Purple haze. It's just so rock and roll, right? - Richard Simmons on Circus of the Stars XVII, circa 1992:...

List: Top 100 Albums of All Time?

Apparently sub-par band Pink Floyd in 1973. (From "The Dark Side of the Moon") It's Tuesday, so it must be time for a Friday list. In a convoluted Liz-logic sort of way this does make sense, see, because I won't be here Friday so we need to make hay while the sun shines, carpe diem, gather rosebuds and whatnot. So, on this browser page it's Friday and we're in list mode. I saw Time's all-time top 100 album list last week, but we were so busy getting ready for TomKat that it would've been lost in the shuffle.
