Maxine Clarke and her $100 dollar bears

Maxine clarkeSo this weekend I spent over $150 dollars on 3 teddy bears  for some very excited little girls. We were are the “Build-a-bear” store which is the brian child of Maxine Clarke aka “chief executive bear”. so why is this chick so yummy? well if Im spending $150 dollars and she has hundreds of stores you can bet she has made over 250 million dollars.

All through an idea that came to her while she was shopping for Beanie babies with a 10 year old. Having worked in retail for a while she decided that the retail experience was stale and boring. So she decided …like most yummy chicks do…I can do it better …and she build the build a bear experience where kids can come and build thier own bear…clothe it, name it, get a birth certificate, get a passport…come back and shop for rollerskates for your bear, running shoes, a back pack, a stroller…anything your kid wants and tht your wallet can handle.

The bears themselves are cute as hell and the shopping experience fun and customer service youthful and child like…we spent lots of time just deciding what clothes to buy it was fab. And the result is a bond with those bears because we actually gave birth to them …in a manner of speaking…kids even put a little heart that had been blessed with some good vibes into the bear before it got closed up….lovely

Maxine is a yummy chick because she acte on her idea and ….boom yummy chicks make things happen.

Grace Lee Boggs – Remarkable Yummy Chick

Grace Lee BoggsThere are few times that I am wholely impressed, moved and inspired by someone as to wish that i could have an ounce of their courage and integrity…one such woman is Grace Lee Bogg’s. A life of serving other needs very rarely comes with accolades…but then again those who live thier lives serving others rarely expect anything much. She is truly someone who can say has tried to make others lives better. But what makes her even more of a yummy chick is the way in which she has lived her life…an intellectual, activist, writer with multidimensional choices…and to hear her speak you realize that she is a woman ahead of her time and full of wisdom…impressive…

Bill Moyers had a good interview with the Graceful Grace Lee Boggs http://www.pbs.org/moyers/journal/06152007/watch3.html

Angelina Jolie lips n’ all

Anglelina jolieDefiniately a “yummy chick”  Angelina is one of the few hollywood stars who actually can surprise you. Very difficult to put her in a box and that is one of the characteristics of a “yummy chick”.  Whether it is her choice of movie roles, her choice of men or even how she chooses to mother her kids…she never ceases to intrigue. For instance what the hell does Brad have in common with Billy Bob …hmmm maybe she has a thing for B’s.

There is no doubting that she is talented but what we love about yummy chicks is that they are multi-dimensional and excel in different arenas. Not only is she a 3 time Golden Globe  winner and 2 time Screen Actors Guild winner and an Academy award winner but she is a devoted humanitarian. Never has a celebrity come off with such genuine desire to make a difference. It’s obvious she dosen’t care about maintaining some sort of glamorous image and that in fact that makes her all the more glamorous. A mum to 4 kids from around the world she can truly say that she has made a difference in this world at minumum in the lives of the kids she has adopted and at the most the attention her humanitarian efforts have shed on troubled parts of the world like Darfur and the plight of regugees everywhere.

Here are a few things you may not know about her:

She went to Beverly Hills highschool,

She is part French Canadian

Her God mother is Jaqueline Bisset another yummy chick

She was a video vixen in a Meatloaf music video “Rock’n’Roll Dreams Come Through” and a Lenny Kravitz video “Stand by my woman” and the Rolling Stones “Anybody seen my baby”

Adding more dimension to her life she made her directoral debut with the documentary A Place in Time, which captures the life in 27 locations around the globe during a single week and features fellow actors such as Jude Law, Hilary Swank, Colin Farrell and Jonny Lee Miller.

Jolie stars as Mariane Pearl in the documentary-style drama A Mighty Heart, about the kidnap and murder of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl in Pakistan during the iraq conflict. Based on Mariane Pearl’s memoirs A Mighty Heart  it had its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. The Hollywood Reporter described Jolie’s performance as “well-measured and moving”, played “with respect and a firm grasp on a difficult accent.”

Future projects include the animated movies Beowulf, playing Grendel’s mother, and Kung Fu Panda. Jolie will also appear in Wanted, an action film based on a graphic novel by Mark Millar, and she was cast as Dagny Taggart in the movie adaptation of Atlas Shrugged.

Bravo! Angelina you work hard and still look fabulous. Another thing we like about her is that she appears fearless in her pursuit of love…she just dives in …thats a yummy chick!

Here’s a few quotes from Angelina:

“I always play women I would date.” – Angelina Jolie

Yummy quote:

“I came to the realization that a strong female is frightening to everybody, because all societies are male-dominated, black societies, poor people, rich people, any racial group, they’re all dominated by men. A strong female is going to threaten everybody across the board . . . I know the majority of Americans think I walk around my house, jodhpurs on and a whip. That I eat men for breakfast and send out my limousine driver to pick up bushels of young men and women, and I let everybody else make my business decisions for me. Even really successful, intelligent men are so fucking scared of me, and buy into the hype.”—Madonna quoted in Spin, January 1996.
