My parents and I were having lunch in the living room this afternoon, tucking into a curry while watching the latest sordid developments in the Ted Haggard meth / "massage" scandal.

On Irresistibility

Salma Hayek, from this evening's episode of Ugly Betty. Thank Satan for TiVO, well-conceived telenovela adaptations, and large, perfect (natural) breasts on small women.
