A Privileged Life: Celebrating WASP Style: Also, Thursday Lunch Breaks

  • Oh, well now this is just classic... A mother of two in a Chicago suburb says her baby monitor has been picking up black-and-white video from inside the space shuttle Atlantis! "It's not coming straight from the shuttle," NASA spokeswoman Brandi Dean said. Riiiiight, sure it isn't, Brandi. Good work with that damage control, sister. So much for NASA and their top secret astronaut ice cream recipes.

  • Whats-his-face, the creepy dude who put together all those boy bands was arrested in Indonesia and we were shocked to find it wasn't for paedophilia. Lou Pearlman was arrested for bank fraud to the tune of $315M. I've always wanted to say "to the tune of". It's not often you can use that term.

  • Former President Clinton made more than $10 million in paid speeches last year. The Current President of the United States earns $400,000 a year. How's that for free-market enterprise. Bloomberg, whereuat? Holla!

  • I just bumped into Clea DuVall outside. She was wearing a big yellow contraption that looked like an actual bath towel. I'm gonna go run and tell Gawker because they're the only ones who give an ish about celeb sightings.

  • 2 dudes from Long Island got busted with over $100,000 worth of bootleg swag. Stacked in one room were several hundred pairs of fake Nike and Bathing Ape brand sneakers, Blue Cult and True Religion jeans, Ed Hardy T-shirts, plus an assortment of other clothing. L.I.'s gonna have some well-dressed cops this weekend. Holla!

  • As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without oil. Amen... Scientists have criticised a major review of the world's remaining oil reserves, warning that the end of oil is coming sooner than governments and oil companies are prepared to admit.

  • Election 2008 is what, a year and a half away and already we're dodging the flaming javelins... Some rich dude from Chicago who's down with squeaky-clean Barack Obama and has bankrolled him in the past was just indicted for fraud. Wake up! Nobody's perfect. Barack is no Knight in Shining Amour. Everyone is dirty; everyone is full of ish.

  • Ok, I'm out.
