I've been told a million times that I should write a book. I think this is as close as I'm going to get.

What to Peruse: Miss USA's Real Life Dress

She totally had the best dress in the top 5.

I'm obsessed with this: The Lotus Sanitizing System

The Geniuses at Sharper Image have invented Germ-Killing Water. Really.

This little machine sanitizes "cutting boards, kitchen counters, stovetops, knives, sinks, toilets, garbage cans or diaper pails... Sanitize everyday items like sponges, dish cloths, small toys, pacifiers, nipples, can openers, kitchen gadgets and utensils — in cool tap water. " All that and it removes pesticides from Fruits and Vegetables (a pet peeve of my life).

They infuse the water with Oxygen ions and make it 50x more powerful than bleach but 100% safe and non toxic.

And Shop Etc. says it's good.

What to Read: Nick Verreos's Project Runway Wrap-Up

Ahh we love Nick too. Including these gems...

"..Kayne owns a pageant dress boutique, is a pageant dress designer and follows pageants the way straight guys follow the NBA finals. It is his religion and Tara is his prophet!"

"Meanwhile, Vincent 'My Model Has a Hat that Looks Like a UFO Made out of a Basket' got stuck with Angela 'I Am an Organic Farmer Who Breeds Gowns Instead of Cows.' "

What to Read: Tim Gunn's Blog

Leave it to Tim Gunn to inspire two blog posts in a row. Go read his blog, including this tidbit.

"...please note my episode one podcast disclaimer: I had not seen a rough cut of the show as of that recording, so all of my babble was exclusively from memory. As of this writing, I’ve seen a rough cut, my memory is jarred into position, and I’m STUNNED about all that escaped me when making that recording. I’d like to promise that it won’t happen again, but one never knows. It’s times like this when I invoke “make it work” to myself!"

Love him.

What to Buy: Doorganizer

While I hate meshing two words together to make a made-up word, I'll forgive it for the Doorganizer. We're constantly walking out without stuff we need. There's nothing like a container store product to keep your stuff together.

Who needs a laptop bag? ($6.99-$9.99)

Of course, I would only recommend this if you have no other wearable Disney memorabilia.
