There are a whole slew of celebrities, sorta celebrities, celebrities who are celebrities because they criticise other celebrities, and celebrities' celebrities out there. And it's major news when Jen dumps Paul but Paul and Angelina are sad about Brad and some secret love affair is rumoured involving some guy who cleans pools in France.
Or something. Most of the headlines that are truly seared into my brain get there because I need to wait for the computer to be fully logged-on before I move my mouse to click that X on the "Welcome" screen. "Welcome! You've Got Mail!" proclaims AOL. "Here's an eyeful of, 'Why Thongs are Bad for Your Butt.' Ooh, and you tried to rush the computer while it was warming up and x out, did you? (evil cackle) Now it's gonna take *longer* while you wait for the computer to unfreeze. Enjoy!"
How did I get onto that tangent? Oh, yeah. Celebrity news? And what I WANTED to get 'round to talking with you about was that it seems like the politicians, celebrities and even people on the ADVERTISEMENTS, fer crying out loud, all seem to get the same sort of treatment in the news.
Well, there's nothing like popping on to NBC for the extreme liberal news. It's news that I could have written myself, if only I were that enlightened. I guess I never knew that the flu and an orgasm sneeze (or something, I didn't click it to find out, ok?) could be confused or that certain celebrities and/or politicians are gay (post that under the "politics" subheading), have health issues (post that under "health"), are "speaking out" against this or that (front page, baby!), or better still, have a beautiful beach home ("leisure" section. Mention the celebrity/ politician has a home in that town, and make the rest of the article have nothing to do with him... just the town).
I think I'm far, far gone down the old Christian path. Logical reasoning no longer works with me. I just feeeeeeel that the following story is downright weird. Ready?
Elizabeth Edwards is doing an interview with nbc.com, which is an international web publication. Ostensibly millions of people are reading. And she's there to talk about how her philandering husband's alleged "love child" should be DNA tested... "quietly." Shhhh.
Oh! And to tell you that her kids are getting ready for school and everyone's happy! Happy! Happy! at the Edwards home now. Everything's just settled so nicely.
As Cookie Monster would say, "Me think she just promoting new book. Me think that all it is. Now all this talk make me hungry for cookie."
Yeah, it makes about that much sense.
