Things have changed…

February 14, 2011

… I decided that it was time to take things to the next level and if you have looked at the number of UBER FABS buzzed this month… All I can say is “Wow”!!! And “Thank You”…

So what’s next?   A chance to meet ALL the people that make sure the Buzzz continues to buzzz.   Even in the wake of a “CBM” or Celeb Buzzz Moment they keep things moving and shaking!

That being said, it is high time we let you in on the chaos behind the madness with a lil’ bitchin’ and moanin’ for good measure.   The only rule I set, was “NO RULES” so get please get  to know:

1. The Assistant:  Uber Amy

2. The Cat: Uber Angel

3. The Cleaning Lady

4. The Cameraman

5. The Boyfriend

Check back often I know I will since I don’t know how much longer I will have the log on info for this space.  It is their playground NOW!

Tis’ the season to forget that it “tis the season”… In fact, even after JUST taking some “me time” to give back to the community that has supported me in so many ways… I still must admit the Uber was sucked right out of MY Fab as I found I was having an A.M. (Atomic Moment)…Not a B.M. ( Duh you know what that is…. Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwh!) over something as silly as…Well it was the LAST string of non-twinkling, five foot, multi-circuit… Annnnnnywayyyyyy,  this has become a season of forgetting not remembering.

  • Forgetting to say “Please” and “Thank you”
  • Forgetting that many of us do have enough while others will go without
  • Forgetting that holiday gatherings are about responsibility and getting behind the wheel of a car drunk is simply unacceptable
  • Forgetting that to give of yourself and your time is a precious gift that WILL make a difference

So for that, I want do something I rarely do, but it is in the name of an amazing cause and some very special friends… Max Ryan (Sex and the City II) and Kevin Sorbo (Hercules and Andromeda)… I am going to share a link from my new UCUNNBFF (Uber, Cool, Uber, Newsie, New, Best, Friend, Forever) Christine (Chris) Morrow of CNN – Her article and event is no less remarkable then the people who made it happen.

Tis’ the season so GET YOUR TIS’ ON!

When I started this blog I knew I wanted to include sports…I have never been a “jock” but I have always been an athletic supporter – (wink) – Now reread that please it is pretty good for a mid afternoon play on words.

Anywayyyyyyyyyyy – I have officially made Scott my go to guru for all things sports related and I plan to give him absolutely NO CREDIT.  So as we chatted and reflected on tight ends and well all those other positions blah, blah, blah Scott came up with a genius idea. In honor of our most recent July 4th holiday, The Mustard Belt and my cool friend Scott – Away we go!

When most Americans think of July 4th, images that come to mind include the stars and stripes, parades, and fireworks. However, an increasing number of sports fans also look forward to Independence Day for the Nathan’s hot dog eating contest on Coney Island, the Super Bowl of the competitive eating circuit.

The Mustard Belt may never be as widely recognized as the Stanley Cup or the Masters’ green jacket, but it also represents its sport’s pinnacle of achievement. While the Nathan’s contest has been held almost every year since 1916, only recently has the event grown to the point where an estimated 40,000 watch the spectacle live and many more watch the live broadcast on ESPN. Contestants won’t get rich on the $20,000 in total prize money, but just think of the endorsement opportunities! The International Federation of Competitive Eating (IFOCE), established in 1997, oversees the Major League Eating (MLE) circuit. Besides hot dogs, contests feature matzo balls, oysters, asparagus, blueberry pie, brats, and cow brains, just to name a few. Women compete alongside men, and contestants range in weight from barely 100 pounds (Sonya Thomas and Juliet Lee) to well over 400 pounds (Eric “Badlands” Booker). By far the two most recognizable names in competitive eating are American Joey Chestnut and Japan’s Takeru Kobayashi, the Ali and Frazier of their sport. Kobayashi won the Nathan’s contest an incredible six times in a row starting in 2001. During his first victory, Kobayashi ate 50 hot dogs in 12 minutes, which doubled the previous record! In 2007 Kobayashi was dethroned by Chestnut, who ate 66 hot dogs in 12 minutes. In 2008 the contest was shortened to 10 minutes; the two heavyweights were tied at 59 hot dogs apiece at the end of regulation, but Chestnut retained his belt in a 5 hot dog “eat off”. Chestnut won the 2009 contest this past weekend by downing 68 hot dogs (in 10 minutes!) and stated his desire to break the 70 hot dog barrier in a future event.

Although several other competitive eating events have also been televised on various cable stations, don’t look for a network television contract any time soon for the ultimate “don’t try this at home” sport.

Even in an age where a new reality show sprouts up seemingly every five minutes, health concerns associated with binge eating almost ensure competitive eating will never attract more than a(n oyster) cult following. Scott Swanay – President & Chief Sherpa
