– Wake Up the Stars

1 08 2007

Greetings Listers!

We are smack in the middle of the dog days of summer. And no, that doesn’t have anything to do with Michael Vick or Joey Chestnut. Instead, it refers to the hottest days of the year, usually starting in July and ending in early September. It is called “dog days” because the ancient Romans thought the heat came from the brightest star in the sky, Sirius (a.k.a. the “dog star”) that rises and sets with the sun during these months. As it turns out, its not hotter due to super radiation from this brilliant star, the heat is actually a result of the earth’s tilt. Anyway, if you’re interested in stargazing and peeping at Sirius, make sure you have a dark place away from the blinding city lights. Traveling to find that perfect place? Might as well pick one with a great prequel. Then if you’re tired from watching meteor showers all night, consider trying some different morning jolt besides that old-fashioned cup of joe. You’re going to need some energy during these final stifling “dog days.” But don’t blink – summer will be over before you know it.

A Falling Star: Lohan’s Spiraling Career and Schizo-Roles
We should have seen the evolution from cute, child star to wild party girl coming! Every role
she’s played in her career has been somewhat twisted and schizophrenic, screaming to
free her from her innocent image.

1998 – The Parent Trap – adorable twins (both Lohan) separated at birth
2003 – Freaky Friday – switched bodies with her mom, Jamie Lee Curtis
2004 – Mean Girls – an out-of-town dork evolves to fit in with the cool kids
2005 – Herbie Fully Loaded – her talking car thinks it’s a NASCAR
2006 – Just My Luck – a stranger’s kiss swaps her good fortunes with his bad luck
2007 – Georgia Rule – a cool and rebellious girl moves to her grandmother’s boring town
2007 – I Know Who Killed Me – a tortured girl insists she is a stripper and not who they think
