What's wrong with this picture?

Read the first paragraph of this article (click on it to make it larger):


Now, I've only read the Twilight series a few times (double digits still count as a 'few', right?). I don't recall reading anything about a character named Carlisle Cooper. Cooper? Seriously, I ripped this page right out of my Good Housekeeping magazine. Doesn't anyone proofread anymore?!? Having worked for a few college newspapers for a number of years, and being involved in that proofreading process, I totally understand how small errors slip by. But Carlisle Cooper? Come on, this is a book series that has sold over 85 million copies worldwide. I find this to be extremely amusing ... and a little embarrassing for Good Housekeeping. But too funny not to share!

Do you remember this actor from Can't Hardly Wait? I saw that movie in 8th grade with my soccer friends and it was an awful movie. But now he will always be that Carlie Cooper to me... And you would think that if someone was writing an article about it, they would at least know something about Twilight!

Seriously people. You can be sure that half of the people at Good Housekeeping have read Twilight. And no one caught the error? Sheesh. I'm sure they've heard about it by a lot of fans. :)

I haven't seen Nurse Jackie but they claim his name there is Fitch Cooper... another blooper or truth?

A Harry Potter article was published a few weeks ago in USA Today that was riddled with errors about the titles of books and the order the appeared in the series. The authors of such articles are crazy--the fans will ALWAYS notice.

I'm not sure double digits counts as a few . . . I mean, that could take you all the way up to 99 readings.

Hahaha, you don't know me and I don't know you and I don't know how I landed on your blog or why I decided to read that entry. My fiance reads twilight religiously too; almost hitting double digits as well. I'll let her know of my findings and see what she says.

Best wishes with the pregnancy.

Tag Heuer Watches To Reconsider Relationship With Tiger Woods
I recently mentioned that replica Tag Heuer affirmed its commitment to Tiger Woods as a brand ambassador. They publicly stated that they would stick by the super star as a face of the brand despite and alleged transgressions. It now looks like they might have altered their position. This is the second time this month that Tag Heuer Watch has had to "restate" an earlier announcement. The first was in regard to the origin on their new Caliber 1888 movement.
Now tag heuer formula seems to suggest that Tiger Woods may not be in their short term future goals.We have already seen Tag Heuer pull Tiger Wood based ads, but that makes sense in the immediate given the negative publicity of Tiger's current extramarital activities. Now it looks like tag aquaracer is seriously considering their future with the golf superstar. The main reason? Not likely the current scandal. Though it helps lubricate their decision - the main rationale behind Tag Heuer's likely separation from Mr. Woods is his announcement to leave the professional world of golf for some indeterminable amount of time. Tiger's main allure was his ability to draw a large audience when he played on the greens. Now that he will withdraw from the public eye, does he really have immediate value to the popular watch brand? Several months from now when Tiger Woods hasn't been in a golf tournament in months, he will just be another rich guy in a Nike baseball cap (unless they pull out too). tag carrera picture is that because Tiger Woods is exiting the world of golf for a while, he is severely jeopardizing his main income stream - endorsements.
