Absence makes the heart go...crazy

Oh, ladies (and discerning gentlemen), have you missed me? I've missed you. I'm not going to lie, I loved being on vacation. Sure America went a little crazy and formed a totally inappropriate girlcrush in the 10 days I've been away (sweet merciful Zeus, if I see Sarah, Palin and Totally Not Hillary on one more magazine cover I'll vomit...seriously, I stole an air sickness bag from the plane just in case). Still I was able to avoid most cable news and much of The Internets long enough to feel rested and relaxed. So now I'm happy to return to my life's work: bring you insanely gorgeous photos of insanely talented women. I consider it a calling. And not too many women get more insanely gorgeous and insanely talented than the inimitable Cate Blanchett. She looks so fucking hot in these photos from her 2003 ad campaign that I'm actually jealous Donna Karan's name gets to share the same frame with her. Have I mentioned that my time away has also made me irrational? Regardless, please consider these shots my holiday gift to you. Trust me, they're a lot better than the "My Blogger Went on Vacation and All I Got Was This Stupid T-Shirt" souvenirs I had considered buying you all.

I don't know who that dude is, but I don't like him. Get away from her. You're not worthy! Sorry, there goes that irrationality again. [Hat tip, Collins!]

The Gentleman said...

Welcome Back! You sure were missed! A lot!
The Palin frenzy is crazy out there… but honestly I can’t way for SNL to start the new season with a Poehler/Clinton Vs. Palin/Fey show off… can’t you imagine? :D

So glad you're back to the internets Miss Snarkie! It was tough getting through the days sans my proper dose of DS.

aFrenchLover said...

Good to have you back...are you (americans) really going to vote for this scary lady (palin)?
please keep on telling us how much you don't like her !

Dianna said...

Awesome photos. Cate Blanchett is one of my favourite actresses, so thanks for making my day. =) It's great you're back.

Amanda said...

Shasta said...

Welcome back and oh my god! Those Cate pictures are amazing.

Alien Queen said...

Dude, of course you were missed. Big-time! Welcome back.

Penny Cillin said...

Oh, thank heavens you are back. Seriously.

Trihardist said...

Oh, Ms. Snarker! It's been terrible while you were away! Please bring your snassy snark up to this whole Republican shenanigan. Make it better. Make it make sense.

And may I say you really outdid yourself with this holiday gift. My heart (and various other parts of my anatomy) is warmed)

cappuccinogirl said...

You've been missed. So have Cate's insanely hot Donna Karen adverts.

RE: Palin, I was very glad to find a facebook group called "I'd bang Sarah Palin but I'm voting for Obama". And ditto the nine million people who are hoping for a Hillary/Palin face-off with Amy and Tina on SNL. It has to be done. It really really does.

I love it when you go insane...welcome back, darling.

Betsey said...

Crazy indeed! You have definitely been missed!

tenofive said...

Welcome back! Those pics were oh so much better a choice than the t-shirts!

bekonia said...

Woo hoo, you're back!

Pretty...damn HOT!

Slym said...

You think you've become irrational, if I had to go one more day without your snark, wit and gorgeous women why I would have hurled myself off a cliff, ok maybe just an embankment, but the point is I already picked out the embankment too - so u know it's bad.

Great to have you back!!!

Becky said...

Ah Cate. Made even hotter by the way she drops the "star pout/hot look" and plays her characters to their uncomfortable, open, gritty limits. The best actor on the planet.
And seriously, smoking hot.

*cosmic freak* said...

Thanked God, a new entry and more photos. And I spent my weekend admiring her talent after watching "Notes on a Scandal". I do think the male model casted didn't really suit her nor the concept. They need someone more A.I.-like.

I wouldn't mind a t-shirt but then you'd have to post it all over across the globe. Haha. You should come take your vacation here. Bali is so nearby but of course, my country have some cool island beaches as well.

So, where'd you go? What'd you do? I was shocked at how much I missed you. Don't be an enigma, we've already got a Russia. At least hint at what was up while you were on down (time).

briannaj said...

Whee! You're back!

Also, what jennifer from pittsburg said.

bellalolita said...

Holy Snarkification that was painful! Welcome back and please don't do that again for awhile, there's too much craziness in the world already!

Cate Blanchette for President!
or Vice President!
or Queen o' my Dreams!

packrat said...

Welcome back, Ms. Snarker!

We really did miss you, especially with all the crazy in the news lately.

Now where's my tshirt???!!!!
