"I want Craft services, I want paparazzi and I want publicists making a scene! I want it to be Hollywood all the way," she continues. "I don't want some rabbi rambling on; I want Meryl Streep crying, in five different accents."

the awesome outnumber the miserable
Now, I've been saying for years that the best part of this job is the reader feedback. A huge percentage of it is articulate, funny, witty, uplifting, cheerful--you guys should all have your own columns! (Yes, there's also hate mail. But the awesome people greatly outnumber the miserable ones.)
Women outnumber men in Spanish government
Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero has named a new
cabinet following the re-election of his Socialist party on March 9.
The new government includes for the first time more women than men and
a female defence minister. Zapatero said at a news conference to
announce the new lineup that "equality between men and women" would be
one of the chief goals of the new government. Zapatero has also
appealed for a cross-party strategy to fight the armed separatist group
ETA, which has killed 800 people in its nearly 40-year campaign for an
independent Basque nation encompassing parts of northern Spain and
southwestern France. Earlier, Zapatero took the oath of office in front
of King Juan Carlos at the royal Zarazuela Palace near Madrid.

to be greater in number than someone or something:
In our office, the women outnumber the men 3 to 1.
