What If You Were Famous?

Sometimes (okay, MOST of the time) I look at these tabloid covers and I wonder how much is bullshit and how much is based on factual information. I'm going to guess that their stories are 15% factual, even when the crap comes straight from the publicist's mouth.

Anyway, it's been slow around here, I'm about to turn another year older this weekend and I thought we'd have some fun, get the blog back up and running, by asking you what YOUR tabloid headline would be. What perfectly innocent thing goes on in your life that people would point fingers at and discuss in hushed voices when you're around? 

I'll start. I am very good friends with my husband's ex-wife. Some people think this is odd and even have the balls to tell me so, including my own mother. If I were famous, the headline would probably be, Keeping Her Friends Close and Her Enemies Closer, or since this friend is also remarried, Lesbian Love Affair? Who Will Tell Mr. McSlore He Is A Beard? 

We're going for a walk today, so if that Sandra/Ryan headline is any indication, Secret Lesbian Tryst In The Mists Of Euclid Creek, FINALLY EXPOSED, as we innocently hug and say goodbye. 

See how fucked up this is? Your turn.

Beavis And Butthead Watch Jersey Shore

Why not? There's nothing else going on, hence all the video posts. Well, there's the economy, corporate rape, Lybian and Syrian unrest, the arrest of Joe Francis (YAY), waiting and waiting for Chris March's show, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, aka The Real Housewives of  New Jersey,....

Progress At Ground Zero

The tenth anniversary is less than a month away and here is a video showing you how much has been built since the area was cleared. Slow progress, to be sure, what with all the politics involved and the fear of enraging or disappointing the families of those who died. 

Some of my friends fear that anything that is built will be a target. Others believe that the design is flawed and should have been smaller. I just wish they would get it done. I still remember everything about that day. It was the beginning of quite a negative time in my life and I can still see the blue sky on September 12th, eerily devoid of planes. I don't like using a vacuum as a metaphor, but this is one that needs filling, STILL.
