Tonight: ABC's Titanic

Ok, ok.  I'm jumping aboard (haha, get it?) the rekindled Titanic craze.  But not for seeing Kate and Leo in 3D, lassies.  I've got something else to be giddy about.  Picture this:  Downton Abbey + Titanic.
Ok, maybe that's not so easy to picture.  But you know I absolutely love love love Downton Abbey.  And well, what you don't know is that as a kid I was obsessed with Titanic.  (Didn't we all go through that phase where we checked out all twenty Titanic books from the public library?  You didn't?  Oh... well, anyway...)

Julian Fellowes, mastermind behind my beloved Downton Abbey, has been working on a new project that will hopefully tide me over a little until the Season 3 premier of Downton.  What's he been working on?  A Titanic mini-series television event for ABC!

It airs tonight at 7 pm Central, with the first three parts playing through 10 pm.  Then part four airs tomorrow night at 8 pm Central.  (Tomorrow marks the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic.)

So who wants to join me?  I'm planning on a margherita pizza all to myself.  Cuddled up in the softest pj's.  And having an all Titanic tweet-fest?  Whatdyasay?  If you wanna join me, you know where I'll be. ;)

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Aniela, a lovely reader from Germany, sent me an email requesting advice on recreating the style of Penny's apartment on Big Bang Theory. 

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
