Megan Fox? More proof I have suddenly gotten Way Too Old too quick. Googling her image was an uplifting morning experience but she wasn't hitherto on my radar.

I really don't need to see Lisa Rinna's lips in Playboy. Read that anyway you want.

I found it interesting comparing the men's sexiest list to the women's sexiest list.
There is definitely an age split on the guy's list, the women's list is a tad more forgiving of age.


Katie would rather finish her run on Broadway than be with Tom. Could this be her chance to finally escape?


If there was ever a guy to make K-Fed look less skeevy, it would probably be Benji Madden. Come on Britney, even you can do better than Paris Hilton's cast-offs.


What is with Michael Jackson's hair?

Also from the article,

"And a woman calling herself Billie Jean Jackson — who claims she is the star’s wife — is suing him for £700,000.

She insists she is the mother of his youngest child Prince Michael II and is demanding joint custody."

To which Jackson refuted by saying "Billie Jean is not my lover, she's just a girl who says that I am the one..."

Maybe Katie has mercury poisoning. I hear that happens when movie and TV actors take on the rigors of Broadway.

Meanwhile, the AP movie critic savaged her husband's last film performance with gusto:

Guy Ritchie still into the sticky/sweet with new girlfriend, Jemima. Merry Christmas/Happy Hanukkah, Madonna.

Britney dating Benji a sign her teenage rebellious phase has yet to end? Britney, wake up and smell the coffee, sweetie. It's only a matter of time before a dog like Benji leaves you for the next be-atch in heat.

Lindsey causes bump in Sam's DJ fees. Well, DUH. Can anyone here say they have even heard of Samantha Ronson before she was hooked up with Lilo?

I'm quite suprised that someone like Mary-Kate Olsen even bothers to look at the pricetags. I'm enjoying the sales too but wonder how many business's will go under because they are giving their stuff away. Tough times.

I doubt the rumors about Michael Jackson are true. Doubt he could have become the singer he was with alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency. Patients with that have debilitating pulmonary infections and are hospitalized frequently throughout their life and have poor pulm. function. Certainly not good enough to be a professional singer. More likely he suffered barotrauma from his hyperbaric chamber. An inadverdant but still self-inflicted condition.

*I think that photo of Katie Holmes was taken after watching 'Valkyrie'.

*Hmmm. Megan Fox? I don't think so.

*Catching up on my tv viewing from when I was out of town, I finally saw the Christmas episode of 30 Rock. Alec Baldwin was terrific. Hated that I missed his online chat but the transcript was good.

Just as I suspected. Women think Jennifer Aniston is sexier than men do.

Paris Hilton's home has security video equipment and a security guard, yet she keeps the doors unlocked. Why didn't Bush appoint this woman to head Homeland Security?

"Olsen ogled a $410 menorah and pillows and throws for her bed, but didn't buy them." Wow. She even shops like she eats.

hodie, not to knock your doc creds, but Jimmie Rodgers (the singing brakeman) was a pro singer with TB. Granted that was a long time ago, when recording the human voice was in its infancy, but still.

Also, my position on Jennifer Anniston (NOT!) is really well known. I didn't see any surprises in the men/women breakdown of "sexiest," except for names of people who are too young for me to know who they are...

I would like to point out, in regards to the "sexiest" list that Angelina Jolie is nowhere to be found. On either list.

Posted by: DorkusMaximus1 | December 22, 2008 11:52 AM | Report abuse

reddragon, one can have latent (non-active) asymptomatic TB for years and years without it giving you any problems. That's why we have to get skin tested from time to time. You don't always know you have it. Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency leaves you nearly defenceless against any kind of pulmonary infection and these patients are constantly hospitalized for pneumonia and asthmatic symptoms. Totally different animal.

hodie,

Salma Hayek is. Just sayin.

Megan Fox -- yes she's quite cut. But I gotta say those tattoos kinda spoil the mood. Give me Jennifer Annison any day of the week. Or Jessica Beil.

BTW, Hodie, I'm pretty sure I suffered a barotrauma in my hyperbaric chamber during my sophomore year in college. Man, the 70s were grueling.

Posted by: rashibama | December 22, 2008 12:26 PM | Report abuse

reddragon, thanks. Not sure that I'd want either disease however. TB is getting harder to treat these days because of resistance.

rashibama, are you sure it was the hyperbaric chamber? LOL

Megan Fox -- is she the girl from the Doritos-in-the-dryer commercial? Or am I thinking of somebody else? Yeah, she's pretty hot.

But what guy in his right mind thinks Nicole Kidman (no. 9 on the men's ranking) is sexier than Halle Berry (no. 10)?! They did poll men with actual pulses, right? Come ON! Halle is way hotter. No contest.

Posted by: td_in_baltimore | December 22, 2008 12:49 PM | Report abuse

Oh, the Doritos woman was Ali Landry. Who's Megan Fox and why don't I know this if she's so hot and all -- is she under 25? That would explain it.

NO PENELOPE CRUZ?! reddragon1, I am SHOCKED. Were these straight men being polled? Just sayin'. Salma does nothing for me. Pretty, yes, but she and Nicole Kidman take turns wearing the icicle crown in my book.

td, you are thinking of Ally Landry from the Doritos commercial. Megan Fox was in Transformers. She was also, according to imdb, on Hope and Faith.

Hey hodie, what's your area of specialty? It's nice to have a resident MD on Lizard island. So we have several resident lawyers, at least one resident physician, at least one engineer (Hi Dorkus)and who knows how many other professionals.

Does Lizard Island have a vet for when my inner cryptid has health issues?

Sasquatch, I specialize in family medicine and OB but now work in administration and managed care. (Which is why I now have time to spend on Lizard Island). Not a vet but I think you'll be safe with me being very close enough to the human species.

msame,
You really have never heard of Fandango?? Have you gone to any movie in the last 10 years? Before every movie over the last 10+ years there have been fandango commercials. You can purchase movie tickets in advance of going to the theater. That way you don't have to wait in line.
Maybe you remember the paper bag sock type puppets from the commercials?
