By helicopter. But first... How was 2012, Your Majesty? Mostly good, if not great, right? With the exception of that ginger grandson taking off his clothes in Vegas, this was a very strong year for the Queen, and a wonderful follow-up to 2011 when Prince William married his Catherine as a prelude to her Diamond Jubilee.

Last year there was no question Your Voice In My Head by Emma Forrest was my Best Book of the year. I didn’t have one in 2012. There were several books I liked, a lot, but it wasn’t love; I didn’t fall in love. It’s ok, right? To go a year without falling in book-love?
Many of you have emailed for a holiday reading recommendation. Have you heard of the Daughter Of Smoke And Bone trilogy by Laini Taylor yet? The first book is pretty average, but it will pay off in the second, just released last month, called Days Of Blood And Starlight. Then you’ll just be mad at having to wait another year for the final installment.
Also, giving or receiving Caitlin Moran’s How To Be A Woman will make you very happy. It might even be required reading if I’m ever the Dean of the Faculty Of Celebrity Studies at a liberal arts university somewhere in New England.

It’s almost been a year and I still love this dress SO MUCH. Remember Zoe Saldana in Givenchy at the SAG Awards? A beater tank! And she’s adorned with spikes around her neck. And it’s essentially a slouchy long blouse made from great material that’s at once comfortable and super dressy. Full Story
When Mimi was pregnant with twins, it was bleak. It was also bleak when she couldn’t find any butterfly snowflake false eyelashes. Mimi’s favourite word to describe any emotion less than ecstasy is “bleak”. Generally Mimi tries to avoid the bleak, and her life is structured so that she generally doesn’t have to encounter it, unless it’s beyond her control, like dembabies who tortured her so in utero.

Ryan Lochte’s brain. It’s a beautiful thing. One of the most beautiful, entertaining things all year... It’s all of it in combination, of course: The grill... The “Jeah”... The “Bro” + “Jeah” equation... The clothing... Full Story
God that was painful. Just sat through Letterman’s interview with Tom Cruise last night. It was 3 segments which...if you’re familiar with Dave, you know, normally, only the veteran chatters, the good ones, they get 3 segments. Like Tom Hanks. Or Julia Roberts. George Clooney, Sandra Bullock, the ones who can play, and roll, and wit. Full Story
A new trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness was released yesterday this time with more focus on Chris Pine’s Kirk who must battle a new adversary but, mostly, his own arrogance. Of course. His family is at risk. Everything is falling apart. They must run through an awesome red field/forest. And. Full Story

There were two false reports of a split this year and, at last check over Thanksgiving, Stacy Keibler is still the official George Clooney companion, with all its benefits and accessories as rewards for not asking for marriage and children. So it’ll be her second Clooney Christmas, if there’s no change in status. Full Story
So...Gossip Girl ends forever tonight; apparently they’re revealing who she is. And I still care. I care enough to come home from my office Christmas party, likely very messy, and watch the two hour finale. Or at least the last 15 minutes.
Is it weird that the cast hasn’t really been out promoting this? Does Blake Lively’s Martha Stewart Wedding’s special count as her promoting this? Pretty sure that’s not how she intended it. The issue is scheduled to be on newsstands a week today so... we should see the cover this week. Something to look forward to then. Something to be distracted by. If you’re looking for a distraction...
I’ll be here, trying. Like Ashley Greene. Or Angelina Jolie’s leg. She makes an appearance on the Best & Worst of 2012 List that begins today. But was it a best or was it a worst?
