Congratulations, you’ve almost completed one full workweek in the New Year – only 51.17745 weeks to go for 2008. And while we are crunching numbers, we’ll give today a 10. Not just because it’s January 10, but also because it heralds so many good outings to come. And we mean a Bo Derek, perfect couples skate, devastating Richter Scale kind of 10, too. So get out there and shake things up. Flip Orley Master Hypnotist Tonight through January 13 It will seem like déjà vu of New Years Eve without the champagne as you wake from a foggy haze remembering…

The chewed-up iPhone was the last straw. Not to mention the all-night bark-a-thons and the poop under the dining room table. Where’s Cesar Milan when you need him? Who cares! Dallas has its own dog whisperer, and she’s hotter and less prima donna than her TV counterpart. If you’ve got a new puppy or an old dog in desperate need of a few new behavior tricks, Karen Stark is the dog trainer you’ve been begging for. With plenty of experience wrangling the multiple-pet families indigenous to the gay and lesbian culture, she does what few trainers dare: house calls. After…

Invite the gang over for the ultimate gay slumber party with a night full of the most mock-tastically terrible movies ever made…and love almost every minute. With the Cult Camp Classics DVD series, Warner Bros. Studios has assembled 12 films so far into four separate collections based on your taste for golden crap: Sci-Fi Thrillers, Women in Peril, Terrorized Travelers and Historical Epics. Can’t get enough of Zsa Zsa Gabor’s illustrious career on film, but want to focus on her turn as a scientist from the planet Venus? Check. Women in prison? Check. Check. Charlton Heston as a no-nonsense pilot…

Rachel Ray has 30 minutes to find a new career and the Barefoot Countessa had better find some walking shoes, because the ladies at the Junior League of Dallas have thrown down the gauntlet in the world of cookbooks. Enter Dallas Dish, a collection of more than 280 recipes ranging from old favorites to the less traditional all served up with the scoop on how that recipe came to be in the Big D. Good food and gossip, we’ll take seconds and a doggy bag. Compiled by Junior League members, relatives, friends and famous local chefs, Dallas Dish even offers…

It’s time for an intervention. That plastic-framed poster of Van Gogh’s “Sunflowers” does not count as art. Now before you get all defensive and start telling us about how you’ve had it since college – we know. The first step to fixing any problem is admitting that you have one. Luckily, real art doesn’t have to be a wallet breaker. Thanks to the glorious interweb, you can prey upon starving artists worldwide. One of our fave new art sites is Little Paper Planes which offers hundreds of original or limited-edition prints for less than a week’s worth of venti vanilla…

This week we hang on the coattails of anybody’s party – regular New Year gatherings, Chinese New Year, a Scottish guy doing stand up in the beginnings of New Year…anything counts. So toss those resolutions aside like a drag queen tosses a press-on nail and get to celebrating. Craig Ferguson Saturday, January 5, 8 p.m. There’s something about an accent that makes even an everyday Joe that much cuter. Such is the case for Scottish comedian/actor and host of the “Late Late Show” Craig Ferguson. He can call us a “cheeky monkey” anytime. Tickets $25 to $100 Bass Performance Hall…

For many of us Texans, upscale country cookin’ meant Sunday afternoon supper at Aunt Sadie’s double-wide. And it was considered fancy if all the jelly jar iced tea glasses matched, and she had dishes with the latest pattern Green Stamps could buy. But all gay pretensions aside, the food was always fresh, flavorful and filled with heart and soul. Just like Hattie’s. And no better time than Sunday brunch to rediscover this Bishop Arts gem. Start with one of the best Bloody Marys in town, or a fresh top-shelf rocks Margarita. The latter is a bit on the pricey side…

Leeches, divas and men in dresses — for some Gay List Daily readers that may sound like the cast of a regular weekend outing. January’s theatre scene is over the top with flamboyant characters and high-sass comedies. All that’s missing are the patrons to take it all in (and perhaps some scantily clad chorus boys). Attack! Of the Killer Mutant Leeches! January 3 through February 16 Okay, so this is not the caliber of show that Sir Ian McKellen may be bringing to the screen anytime soon, but the Pocket Sandwich’s popcorn-tossing comedies always promise a good time. You can…

It’s not even January and you are already cursing that pesky resolution (restraining order?) to keep 10-feet away from anything deep-fried, deliciously fatty or coated in chocolate. Enter Fish Express, the casual-dining love child from the owners of the swanky Go Fish restaurant. Despite the name, there are actually chicken and turkey options on the menu in addition to all sorts of things from the sea served up on salads, wraps and in Po-Boys. For those trying to avoid a recurring role in Biggest Loser 2008, just look for the red crosses on the menu indicating heart healthy items certified…

Mama always said fish and family start to smell bad after a couple of days. Chase away the reeking odor of pine-scented Glade plug-ins and after-dinner cigars with a fancy pants Jimmy Belasco soy candle. Whether the family came to you and stunk up the joint or a visit to their homes is still stuck in your nostrils, the damage can be undone. Like all things good in life, we begin with great packaging (beauty really is on the outside).
