I’m Devasted! Gary Coleman Reportedly on Life Support, In Coma

Gary Coleman – Then 

                                             
This story is so sad to me. Gary Coleman has slipped into a coma and is currently on life support after suffering a head injury at his Utah home this week, the actor’s spokesman announced Friday morning.

Gary Coleman is one of those childhood stars that I’ve been rooting for, hoping that he would be able to pull his life together and have a fairytale happy ending. Part of it is because not only did I love the show, but ironically, people used to say I looked like Gay Coleman when I was little. I know that’s not the most flattering comparison for an 8 year old girl, but in retrospect I realize that it was because people found him so damned adorable.
Here’s hoping Gary has a full recovery and life turnaround. I’m praying for him.

Lindsay Lohan Arrest Warrant Issued

Come on Lindsay!!! You can at least make your court dates. The LiLo trainwreck continues…..

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — A judge issued a warrant Thursday for Lindsay Lohan’s arrest after the actress missed a mandatory hearing. Bail was set at $100,000.

The 23-year-old actress was due in court for a progress report on her probation stemming from two arrests in 2007. Her attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, said Lohan’s passport was stolen while she was at the Cannes Film Festival and was unable to return to Los Angeles in time for Thursday’s hearing.

“She did, in fact, have airline tickets,” Holley told the judge. “From our standpoint, there is a valid reason for her not being here today.”

Holley said Lohan would be back in the United States by Friday evening. Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel wasn’t satisfied, saying the star has a history of missing scheduled appointments.

“If she wanted to be here, it looks to the court that she could have been here,” Revel said.

MAMAVATION – MOVE YOUR FEET FOR THE MN AIDS WALK

Last week. I got my updated CONFIRMATION CARD in the mail for the Half Marathon I’m running in on June 6th. It was awesome. I was so excited at the thought of being a part of Minneapolis Marathon and getting my little medal for completing the race. Last week, I also tweaked my back. Drat!! I think it was from lugging around Mr. Monster Tot, but who really knows.

It’s the first time I’ve had any problems since I was pregnant, and I gotta tell you, the whole this is really frustrating. I feel like I just got excited about the race instead of apprehensive about it.

But, I’ve decided not to let it get me down too much. I wasn’t trying to finish the race in record time, or anything. I was just trying to finish. So, I’ve been saving my back by walking more than running. But’ I’m still moving, which is the important thing.

Speaking of walking, I’m joining the Minnesota AIDS Project for its 23rd Annual Minnesota AIDS Walk to raise funds and awareness in the ongoing struggle against HIV. The walk is this Sunday May 16th and even if you haven’t registered or raised a bunch of money they would still like you to come out to Minnehaha Park and participate.

My family and thousands of concerned Minnesotans will get together at Minnehaha Park in Minneapolis to provide support that the Minnesota AIDS Project needs to maintain critical programming and important prevention education.

Hope to see you there and keep moving those feet this week.

And since, I’ve been in a Middle Eastern cuisine mode lately and since it;s been cold here in the Twin Cities, I thought I would share this delicious soup recipe with you. The blend of spices in it will make your kitchen smell AMAZING. It’s hearty, but still low fat, low carb and low calorie.
