If even ONE ROCKET hit America's soil.....we would not show restraint. How much is Israel supposed to take? 300 ROCKETS in TWO DAYS.

The problem is the dense population in the Gaza Strip. Civilians and the Hamas so close together.

I would never know what to do. C'mon Jan 20th already.

R.I.P Harold Pinter

The world has lost another great artist and another genius poet. His works taught me one of the most important lessons that I use in my own work to this day: Less is More.
Sadly and ironically, it would have been nice to have a bit more of him. Thank you Mr. Pinter for all your work. Your plays will live on forever.

LONDON — Harold Pinter, praised as the most influential British playwright of his generation and a longtime voice of political protest, has died after a long battle with cancer. He was 78."Pinter restored theater to its basic elements: an enclosed space and unpredictable dialogue, where people are at the mercy of each other and pretense crumbles," the Nobel Academy said when it announced Pinter's award. "With a minimum of plot, drama emerges from the power struggle and hide-and-seek of interlocution."

Can someone tell me...

how the hell do I get a guy to leave my bed in the morning? If we aren't spending the day together, no matter how much I like them....I don't know the correct manner to get him outta there. Sometimes I just need to nurse my hangover alone. Of course if you are reading this blog and thinking to yourself..., " so you didn't have to go to temple for torah class in the morning like you said"... Yeah buster I was lying. I don't go to temple silly.

But I do the WHOLE process of pretending I have to go somewhere and throughout my life some people just never get the point. Is there some certain procedure I don't know about?? I get up and make it PLAINFULLY awkward that I have something to do. Then I say, " Do you mind if I take a shower?" I come back... they are still there. Then I get ready, blow dry my hair, literally act like all I need to do is find my keys.. and still nothing.

I asked Laura R for her advice- she said, " Just tell them to get the hell out of there."

I can't do that. I'm nice and usually I like the guy.

A very prominent Theatrical Casting Director said, " I would cum in her eye by "mistake" and then she'd have to get up and do something about it. "

My friend Gen Said, " I dunno what I'd do... I can barely remember the last time I got laid. It's a distant memory."

Well thats usually the case for me as well.. but I am seriously asking this question in a very general sense. It's not for one specific case but for all of my life. Please someone give me their opinion.

**** ON a side note- sometime in the recent (could be year could be day could be 5 years) I did have a real agent meeting that I had to attend. So....one time I really did need him out of bed. The rest of the times.... YEAH COMPLETELY FAKED IT. <-- along with other things...

**** On another side note- if I do want you to stay in my bed... Dont think your anything special. Maybe I might just want you there to stay.

Why do I always fall for Republicans?

If people were going to describe me to someone who had never met me, I would guess in their first sentence somewhere it would be stated " she is a raging liberal and if you are conservative in any political ways-----you should just keep your mouth shut."

I can barely understand how anyone this day in age could still have republican beliefs with where our country is. I could go on and on about how I feel about social and economical issues whether it be the auto bailout, gay marriage, and the common understanding that BETWEEN mccain and obama IT IS BEYOND THE MOST OBVIOUS CHOICE YOU"D HAVE TO BE STUPID TO NOT VOTE OBAMA.

But asides from that... I must admit my little secret....


And it's not just some of the times.....EVERY SINGLE TIME. I completely disagree with most of what they stand for but somehow they are the only ones that seem to steal the butterflies in my tummy. And the saddest thing, is they are the only people who I defend when other people are like , "Dara you've got to be kidding me. OF ALL FREAKIN PEOPLE"

Whether it be my celebrity crush or the guy I'm dating.....they basically all are the "R WORD". And I just love them for it. And its not just some of the times.... its pretty much got a 100 percent rate. It's pretty ridiculous I must admit. And the funny thing is... if I go out and meet a guy and think he is just wonderful.. we will go on one date and I will say to myself, " Dara Don't you dare bring up politics." But whatever it just happens and WHAT DO YOU KNOW!!!!!!!!!!! They voted for Bush.

Current crush- DUH I MEAN- Joe scarborough from morning joe. Yes I do dvr him every morning. Yes he was a republican congressman who sometimes I want to strangle. But yes he is welcome in my bed any morning he wants!

What a Dick

Dick Cheney admitted today that even if we knew FOR A FACT that there were no WMDS in Iraq--- we would have still invaded it. The bush doctrine allows a country to give "PREEMPTIVE STRIKES"against another country if it feels like that country is pursuing or planning "hostile attacks" against them.
We can only pray that doesn't come back to bite us in our a$$

So now I can list my favorite Dick quotes.

"I had other priorities in the sixties than military service." –on his five draft deferments, April 5, 1989

"There are a lot of lessons we want to learn out of this process in terms of what works. I think we are in fact on our way to getting on top of the whole Katrina exercise." --Sept. 10, 2005

"My belief is we will, in fact, be greeted as liberators." --March 16, 2003

"We know he's been absolutely devoted to trying to acquire nuclear weapons, and we believe he has, in fact, reconstituted nuclear weapons." --March 16, 2003

Juicy Couture

Who put Truman in the Bloomingdales window?

Amazing Race Champs

Yes I know these now two famous people..... AND I FREAKIN LOVE BOTH OF THEM SO MUCH!!!

It's alright that they kept the fact that Starr and Dallas were now dating so they could see my reaction in person.

It's alright that they watched me have a heart attack every Sunday and watch my blood pressure turn my face red while I thought they were going to get eliminiated.

It's alright that they didn't include me in knowing about the whole process and getting me to sign the confidentiality agreement with CBS. BECAUSE we all know........

It's not alright that the show isn't on anymore. What else am I going to do while I eat my Chinese wonton soup on Sundays??

Did I mention---- they won a million dollars..... a ton of trips to the caribbean...and two electric cars that they will never drive. Did I mention that Monica and Dallas are the luckiest people in the world. Specially monica- those blonde gorgeous locks sure got her a winner! XOXO

oh and this article is just a riot-- like who really cares what nick does during the day????......................................OK i do. -------------------------------------------- http://popwatch.ew.com/popwatch/2008/10/the-footlights.html

Fearing Fame

When pressed at his CHILDREN'S concert at City Hall if he was negotiating with Illinois Governor Blagojevich as 'Advisor A', Rahm Emnauel had to push off a reporter in front of family saying,
" You're wasting your time, I'm not going to say a word to you.
I'm doing this with my children. Don't do that. I'm a father.
I have two kids. I'm not going to do that. "

While being recognized on the street comes with being noticed on TV or the wide screen, there comes boundaries that are always crossed regarding your 'normal' life. Many people always say to me, "Oh you want to be a famous actress one day, eh?". Some find it hard to believe that with my chosen profession I prefer privacy to publicity. Of course I know the price of fame and the understanding that I am putting myself out there for the world to see. But I take great pride in my life and would not anyone who did not know me feel like they have the right to peek into what I consider sacred and my own.

But then comes the hypocrite in me who views Perezhilton before checking my e-mail. The difference comes in the fact that Perez displays "celebrities" and "fame whores" who do everything possible to push their lives in front of the camera. Yes Britney Spears intrigues me and her constant crack melt downs are probably my favorite things in the world....BUT STAY AWAY FROM HER KIDS. The paparazzi has completely taken over what the entertainment press should be. I don't want to see pictures of their cellulite- Please I could just look in the mirror at me and my bulldog.. Most movie stars sit down for press junkets and agree to answer most questions in a civilized, public manner that helps promote their work. Just like a product to a CEO- a film is something an actor believes in and wants to sell.

However, I fear one day being asked a question, or quite simple feeling harassed by this question out of nowhere in front my kids. I dream of one day of being happy with a family and a backyard of fat bulldogs. ( Hopefully near a lake). I dream of working on my craft to support my family and filling me with the creativity of doing what I enjoy.

The paparazzi has only accelerated at a rate that soon one day, there will be no privacy at all. I can only wish to be respected and that my work would be the thing that is in the public eye.
