Well, yes, for now, although technically, CNBC Sucks, Bloomberg Rules is a financial news and commentary Web site. Shocked that John Boehner and Mitch McConnell made compromises and took constructive leadership roles in resolving The Fiscal Cliff, I am more or less content with the world, so I have little impetus to write. I have not watched CNBC on television in years, and strictly online, I actually consider CNBC useful. As for Bloomberg, I think of Sara Eisen as “a poor man’s Becky Quick”, and she annoys me (although, yes, I would), but outside of her skirt blooper here, I do not have much to say about her. I love the rest of the Bloomberg crew. I think the world of Erik Schatzker. The only other remarks I can make about Bloomberg are that Betty Liu and Scarlet Fu use superb, probably very expensive product in their hair, and Stephanie Ruhle is hot as hell and appeals to me in every way. Bloomberg rules.
As I have written previously, I do not know how often I will post on this blog. Until I post again, I wish all of you well.
Before I leave, of course I will post another busty celebrity picture. This one is of Rosamund Pike. I am a Tom Cruise fan, and I was reasonably entertained by the movie, but frankly, Rosamund Pike comprised the two biggest reasons to watch Jack Reacher.
And oh, always vote for the Democrat.
You know what? If I can call Kelly O’Donnell the best thing on television, I can call Kat Dennings the best thing on television too.
How the heck can I call two different women “the best thing on television”, you ask? Well, genius, we could have a tie, like a dead heat in the zeppelin race. Except in this case, four zeppelins would be involved.
As with Kelly O’Donnell, I will let you guess why I consider Kat Dennings the best thing on television. There are two big reasons, and neither of them is the comedy of 2 Broke Girls. I have never watched that show.
Two very big reasons to like Kat Dennings
I find it interesting that this blog has never mentioned Kelly O’Donnell previously. Perhaps, that is because a woman’s body changes over time, or due to having children. Whatever the reason, these days, I consider Kelly O’Donnell to be the best thing on television. Watching her report on The Fiscal Cliff made The Fiscal Cliff more than tolerable.
There are two big reasons why I think Kelly O’Donnell is the best thing on television. I will let you guess what they are.
To give you a hint, neither of those reasons is her reporting.
Busty Kelly O’Donnell
I am not that picky, and I love a girl who loves to have a good time. Have a terrific new 2013, everybody!
I will be gone for a while from this blog, maybe through the remainder of the year. If I do not post before 2013, I wish all of you Happy Holidays.
Before I go, there is a song that I have to post which has been on my mind since I heard it recently in the ending credits of a movie called Five Corners. The song is “In My Life” from 1965 by the Beatles.
Some loves are deep and passionate and extraordinary, and they have their songs. Other loves are hot and sexual and extraordinary, and they have their songs. And then there is the type of love that can only be captured by a song such as “In My Life”. This love comes from the soul and it is full of sweetness, affection, gratitude, and loving memory. I dedicate this song to all the people in my life and especially to a woman whose name begins with “K”.
I will write more about the Krim tragedy after all. I am devastated. I have glanced at Marina’s blog and the Lulu & Leo Memorial Service site and I wept.
It is possible to love the children of complete strangers, even to love them deeply after viewing a few photographs and reading a few words. It is the humanity that binds us all.
In a video on the memorial site, Krim family friend Jonathan Kitto quoted Paramahansa Yogananda: “Our real self, the soul, is immortal. We may sleep for a little while in that change called death, but we can never be destroyed. We exist, and that existence is eternal. The wave comes to the shore, and then goes back to the sea; it is not lost. It becomes one with the ocean, or returns again in the form of another wave. This body has come, and it will vanish; but the soul essence within it will never cease to exist. Nothing can terminate that eternal consciousness.”
I am not a big fan of returning again in the form of another wave, but becoming one with the ocean sounds really good. As Frost wrote, however, I have “miles to go before I sleep”, so I move on, thankful to Marina and Kevin for sharing the love they share with their children with all of us.
Whenever I hear news about tragedy involving children, I try to learn as absolutely little about it as possible. I love children, and I do not want to know. I run away from listening to that type of news and Lord knows I go out of my way to not read it. So it was sickening to learn this morning, when I saw headlines that Yoselyn Ortega pleaded “not guilty” at her arraignment yesterday, that the “nanny stabbing murders” of two children in October — of which I had intentionally been only vaguely aware — had a CNBC (and Bloomberg, for that matter) connection.
It feels inappropriate to write anything more, other than condolences and prayers to Kevin and Marina Krim. I thought about replacing the Join the Democratic Party “ad” on the sidebar with something that promoted the Krims’ Lulu & Leo Fund, but given the nature and content of this blog, even that well-intentioned act feels gauche. Therefore, I will only link to the fund here and make this post a “sticky” for a while. To those who are reading this, please donate generously. Established by Marina and Kevin Krim in memory of their two children, the Lulu & Leo Fund seeks to raise money for children’s education and enrichment programs.
