Wow. Tuesday sucked. Like, hardcore sucked. You know, I’m not a super religious person, but I’m really big on God and faith, and, as some of you might have noticed, I’ve had a really fucking hard few months. Through it all, I had full trust in God. And things started to turn around when I got Charlie. I was much happier, I had a brighter outlook on life, and I was like, “Phew, I’ve lived through the worst of it.” And then this shit happens and it just rocks you to the core. Not just because I miss little Charlie — I miss him terribly, and feel sick about how much he suffered — but because it shakes this faith I’ve clung to so dearly these past few months. I feel like I’ve been scooped out from the inside.
So I cried a lot, and leaned on some amazing friends, and then I drove up I-5 for God knows how long, just blasting the music and thinking. Along the way, I got a text from my sister: “You have over 100 comments about Charlie on your site! People love you!” and it did mean a lot. So thanks, guys.
Anyway. I’m in Canyonville, Oregon right now, and heading up to Seattle tomorrow. Not sure why or how long I’ll stay, but I have friends there — including Spiteful Lars, my ever-faithful pinch-hitter — and look forward to spending time with them.
After I posted about Charlie’s death, I got a call from a reporter in Phoenix. Apparently the pet store where I bought him — Pets Landing in Scottsdale — is infamous for selling ill animals, and authorities are currently trying to shut them down. How these people can sleep at night is a mystery to me.
Anyway, what better way to come back than with this photo of the always fabulous Alexis Arquette, hanging out in Bev Hills on Tuesday night.

Here’s Jessica Alba today outside a fine establishment called The Rug Company. I don’t think that’s a double entendre out of the photags who caption these things but you never know.
In other Alba news she held a baby shower yesterday at the Ever After Teahouse in Studio City. Her sister (Jaime King) and Rashida Jones (Jim’s other girlfriend on The Office) were in attendance.
- Skewers of tiger shrimp and chicken
- Mini doughnuts
- Strawberries dipped in white and dark chocolate
- White wine
- Iced coffee
Man, take it easy on the sugar over there kids.
The only other development was this little nugget:
While most of the gifts were in yellow or green, Jessica reportedly told guests she is expecting a baby girl…. Jessica and Cash are rumoured to be naming their daughter Honor Warren.
Hmmm. Honor? For a girl? I’m skeptical. But I like when the Brits/Kiwis/Aussies throw in that extra O in rumour. Much more civilised.

I know what you’re thinking. Wait, has Kate Hudson’s career gone that bad? No, not yet. She’s just filming a new movie called Bride Wars. Evidently Anne Hathaway (human ghost) is in it too so I’m sure it will be delightful. Here’s another one:
You can tell in both she’s acting her ass off. I also think it’s safe to say we’ve provided you with your desktop image for the week.

I don’t care about this fella at all but perhaps you do:
LONDON, England (AP) — Rock musician Pete Doherty has been sentenced to 14 weeks in jail for violating a probation order…. Parlophone Records did not say how Doherty broke his probation. But music magazine NME cited a court spokesman as saying Doherty had used different kinds of drugs, breached “time keeping,” and generally not complied with his probation.
“Generally not complied” carries a lot of weight, right? I also like that he tried different sorts of drugs. They say variety is the spice of life and such.

Here’s Nicolas Cage, dressed in a bear suit, punching out a woman, set to the theme from Chariots of Fire. Enjoy.

Does anyone besides me remember STP? Stone Temple Pilots?
Here – maybe this will help:
They also did an odd video with Sarah Michelle Gellar. Then they broke up. Then Scott Wieland did enough drugs to kill a fleet of yaks (wait, actually that was probably when they were together too). THEN he joined Velvet Revolver for around five years. They kicked him outta tha band for drug use. We know how that goes.
But now they are BACK TOGETHER!
I think I would pay to see them. Which is odd, because I never leave my house unless the warden asks nicely. They’re going to be on the Jimmy Kimmel Show on May 1st and Scott Wieland promises more to come:
“The story’s not finished,” Weiland told The Associated Press. “There’s more to be revealed and more to be told.”
In this case “more to be revealed” means the cities they will be playing and the news that Weiland needs to head to rehab real quick-like beforehand.
