SOMEHOW We Will Make It Until 9PM CST

It's a pretty slow non-news day, today, I'm afraid, as apparently even the celebs are hunkering down with anticipation for tonight's big "Project Runway" Scandal Reveal Show. However, I saw this brilliant promo for "South Park"'s Emmy nomination over at Perez Hilton, and just had to share:

I don't know if Trey Parker and Matt Stone came up with this concept, or if they paid an ad agency or what, but whoever was behind it is a total effing genius.

Next, it looks like "Queer Eye For the Straight Guy" has been cancelled after three years. I haven't watched it regularly for a while now (and apparently I am not alone on that), but it's still sad to see it go. It's one of those shows that's good to watch when you're desperate for something and flipping around the channels and just aren't in the right mood for "160 Pound Tumor" or "Mystery Diagnosis" or "Surgical Instruments Left Behind" (although believe me, sometimes I am in exactly the right mood for those shows--if I'm not watching Bravo, I'm usually enthralled/repulsed by something on DiscoveryHealth). "Queer Eye" was always a good, reliable show that you don't necessarily want to watch when it first airs, like a gay "Law & Order." You shall be missed, guys! (Although, Jai, not so much.) Now I will be forced to watch even more repeats of "Medical Detectives." Sigh.

And, finally, yet another blind item. I'm sorry! I can't help myself! My name is Jennifer and I am addicted to blind items! This one is from Page Six, which is "just asking":
WHICH hunky actor who once picked up a young man and brought him back to the Mercer Hotel for oral sex is now hanging out with a top athlete? The two are said to be more than just workout buddies.

Duuuude. I cannot believe they are printing such an obvious one as this! Why not just put a photo of a guy in a yellow bicycling jersey with a black bar over his eyes? The only question is who the "hunky actor" is, since the "top athlete" whose name rhymes with Nance Farmstrong has been hanging out with both Cake Pillenhaal and Wrathew HickRonabay. Of course, I could be completely wrong. One thing is for sure, someone can come up with better rhyming names! Any thoughts on this item? Funny puns? Leave 'em in the comments box, and then go back to biting your nails with giddy nervousness for tonight's "Project Runway."

Make it work!
