With the holidays rapidly approaching, this can mean only one thing - time for my annual pilgrimage to lovely Valle de Bravo, Mexico. Blogging might become extremely sporadic or non-existent but have no fear dear readers, I will be back and re-energized in January 2007.

So with the Golden Globe nominations announced yesterday, I am happy to report that one of my favorite performances of the past year is being acknowledged. Emily Blunt's performance in The Devil Wears Prada is enthralling, a brilliant foil for Anne Hathaway and the worst type of career opportunist - which of course makes for great viewing.
She's bitchy, aggressive, demanding and above all human - never an easy feet when you are sharing screen time with Meryl Streep, who devours all in her way. Emily has stiff competition with Jennifer Hudson (Dreamgirls) and Cate Blanchett (Notes on a Scandal), but I'm glad she was not overlooked this award season and I expect we will be seeing other great things from Ms. Blunt in the near future. Congratulations on the nomination Emily - good luck.

So I can freely admit I love Pamela Anderson. Why she doesn't have a huge comedy on network television boggles my mind, as I have stated before on this blog the girl has got amazing comedic timing. If you need evidence of this, please run out and purchase the complete DVD series of Stacked, the show Fox cancelled too soon. She is truly overlooked for her acting talents - because I believe too many people get wrapped up with the blonde hair and breasts - the woman is an icon and will be remembered for a long time, mark my words.

So with bad internet connections while in my hotel, I had to wait until my return to post my top five favorite things seen during the art fairs in Miami:
5- As seen above, these classy mannequins graced the window of the store simply titled Excess. You got to love a town that caters to the implant nation.
4- Julie Hefferman's painting entitled Self Portrait as Tender Mercenary at the Catharine Clark Gallery booth (Pulse Art Fair).
3- Walking on the beach in December, nothing finer than escaping the cold for a while.
2- The Chihuahua wearing a protective collar lamp... simply a classic. Photo posting coming soon, I promise. Also a great X-Mas present for me if you know where to buy one.
1- Peaches rocking the shit out of the Art Positions opening. Anyone who can wear at least 5 different pairs of underwear at once, have three costume changes on stage, not to mention starting your show with 80's hair-metal Europe's The Final Countdown - kicks some serious ass. Give that girl her props, she's truly original and closing her show by running down to the water's edge to jump in the water naked - brilliant.

Sorry to have been so lazy blogging, but I have a good excuse - crazy busy with work and preparing to head to sunny (hopefully) Miami for the art fairs and festivities. Looking forward to the complete madness and excitement of being down in Florida and seeing what marvels of art are on display and how quickly everything sells out. So dear readers if you have some tips of good restaurants, nightclubs and dive bars - I want to hear from you. I will down there until Sunday and with plenty of moments to enjoy myself and the local culture. See you on the beach.
