So I heard

- I heard that Giada De Laurentiis (the food network chef) had a rumored fling with John Mayer. My thoughts: first, what is the deal with John Mayer? Is he made out of marzipan? And brownies? Second, she is married to a designer for Anthropologie! I would most definitely prefer spending time gazing through an Anthropologie catalog and its store displays over hearing quotes from another lame interview with Mr. Mayer. And finally her grandfather, famed film producer Dino De Laurentiis died a few days after the story broke out. If I heard my granddaughter was messing with John Mayer, I'm pretty sure that'd make my heart stop too. BTW, both are responding with denials.

- I heard 127 Hours is an amazing movie. It's about Aron Ralston. You know, the trapped hiker who had to amputate his own arm with a dull knife to survive? I saw an interview Ralston did shortly afterwards and just listening to the description of what happened was excruciating. I'm not sure if I have the stones to watch the story unfold.

- I heard that Jessica Simpson got engaged. Maybe that's the real reason Dallas won. I'm sure she burned that jinxed pink Dallas jersey when she put on that ring. The happy guy is an ex-NFL player who decided to pass on going to Wharton to snuggle with Ms. Simpson and hold her purse. Which is probably heavy considering she is worth nearly $100 million from her clothing and shoe lines. Make that lucky guy--apparently she doesn't want to sign a prenup. Unfortunately, the timing of her announcement after her ex-husband's engagement seems, I don't know...premature? Or is the word immature?

- I heard that "The Situation" and Bristol Palin shot a PSA promoting abstinence, where Ms. Palin confirms she's not going to hook up before she's married "for real" (previous actions resulting in a cute baby notwithstanding, of course) and he overuses the words "the situation" to the point of confusion/annoyance. Oh yes, it did happen:
