Yesterday was a terrible day. On top of it, I missed the chat. But, I read the transcript. Thanks for the shout out Jen. The giggle I got from it, was a great pick me up.

BTW, a Lost chat is fine. I can avoid that. It's hard to avoid when it takes over the blog.

LiLo's return to Twitter: somewhere, @luvlinsey is tweeting tears of joy...


So mediation didn't work for Suge Knight and Kanye West - *now* can we settle this in traditional rapper fashion - with gunplay? Uzi represent, yo.


John Mayer rants about Huffington Post, and Huffpo responds the only way it knows how: a link on its homepage to a list of "John Mayer's Angriest Rants" sandwiched between one to an article about how the left is disappointed with President Obama and another about Victoria's Secret models' breasts.


"People reports that "Glee's" Dianna Agron (aka Quinn) is dating actor Alex Pettyfer." Do we call the happy couple "DiAl," "AgroFer," or "zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz"?


In other words, what Conan O'Brien can't say at the Emmy Awards: Anything interesting.


Overheard at the first writers' meeting for Tupac Shakur biopic: "Mediate *this*, b****! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAH."


Will Forte exits SNL - or, he *will*, if only he can use that bubblegum, a paper clip, and two strands of human hair to defue that bomb and get out of the writers' room before -----


Kevin Spacey in "Richard III" - excellent. Now is the winter of our discontent/Made glorious summer by this sun of York.

I heard the judge told Chris Brown that he was doing a bang up job.

"Lindsay Lohan makes a triumphant return to Twitter" -- And judging by words like "4every1's," she could use some spelling rehab too.

"Levi Johnston says he regrets issuing public apology to Sarah Palin" -- Another case of let's learn family relations using Candy and Tori Spelling as our role models. People, take it inside. Privately.

"Writers hired for Tupac Shakur biopic" -- I hope they own flak jackets.

"John Mayer publishes rant" -- Better a rant than another shot of him in that Borat outfit. If he were angry, wouldn't it have been better to run through the halls of his high school and scream at the top of his lungs? Welcome to the real world, JM.

byoo, urgently need link to Victoria's Secrret model's breasts.

and I think "AgroFer" is perfect.

We'll just add this to the list of his own actions that Levi Johnston regrets.

I can see Kevin Spacey as "Richard II" before I could see him as "Richard III." Anglophiles will know what I mean.

"A guide to what Conan O'Brien can and can't say at the Emmy Awards" - Fortunately the law is pretty tone deaf to sarcasm, so Conan should just praise the heck out of the programming geniuses at NBC and everybody will know what he really means.

"Writers hired for Tupac Shakur biopic" - Maybe Elvis can pen it.

"Levi Johnston says he regrets issuing public apology to Sarah Palin during "Early Show" interview." - The apology is not the first 'issue' he should regret.

"Suge Knight and Kanye West unable to reach agreement in mediation related to lawsuit" - I smell dance-off.

I heard the judge told Chris Brown that he was doing a bang up job.

I heard he actually said, "You're doing a heckuva job, Brownie."

Are birthday wishes in order for Jen today? Someone mentioned it in the chat yesterday, so if so, HAPPY BIRTHDAY JEN!!! Have a great day.

Now back to the regularly scheduled snark ... I read that LiLo was driving a Maserati (?!!?) in the wee hours of the morning and picking up a bunch of her friends. Gee. So glad she's getting her act together. (cough cough)

And how, pray tell, does LiLo afford a Maserati?

You know how ep feels about Lost in the blog? That's how I feel about any mention of Chris Brown. Can't we let this repugnant, abusive toadlet wither away into obscurity?

All the money she's saving on coke, now that she's been thoroughly [cough] rehabbed?
