Honey Boo Boo and last meals

- If you've not jumped on the Homeland bandwagon, it's not too late.  The Showtime series is again knocking it out of the park this season after an Emmy-winning haul last month after Season One.

- Here's a fun fact which may quickly cause color changes in the American boudoir.  A British study found that adults in that country had more sex when their bedrooms were painted purple.  Those with beige, green or grey bedrooms had less frequent intimate encounters.

- Have you ever played the game "what would your last meal be if you were on death row?"  Well, in reality, death row inmates don't ask for vegetables and more often than not choose unhealthy last meals, with some topping 7,200 calories.  The most frequently requested items, according to researchers, are lots of meat, fried foods, sugar and ice cream.  My question is, why are researchers spending time on this less-than-compelling topic?

- What's the deal with former Master Chef contestant Lorena Garcia now pitching for Taco Bell?  It's way off strategy for the fast-food chain.  And, what credibility does Garcia have in touting the quality of "the fourth meal" chain's salad bowl?

- In this week's "you can't make this 'stuff' up" category, word out of Hollywood is that Kim Kardashian is "crushed" that she isn't getting a star on Hollywood Boulevard's Walk-of-Fame.  According to, KK had hopes of being the first reality TV "star" to be granted this honor.  A Walk-of-Fame rep told The Hollywood Reporter, "They have to have a career in the business of acting, for five years or more."

- Speaking of reality TV, can the bar be lowered any further than Here Comes Honey Boo Boo?

- And, finally, here's your data point for the day:  59% of Americans say that if they could do it all over again, they'd choose a different career.  And, only 33% expect to retire by age 65.  (Source:  Parade/Yahoo! Finance)
