Baby Come Back

What's going on?  My feather duster keeps sneaking back into the house saying it wants me back.

I used to think that was one of the stupidest commercials known to man and cleaning products.  But you know, it's grown on me.  It's one of those things that gets funnier every time I see it.

Speaking of stupid things, now Brangelina appear to be on the brink of nevermore...quoth the raven.  Yep, their 5 year, 33 kid relationship appears to be coming to an end.  Gossip sites say they've already been to the lawyer to split up their joint $300 million fortune.

But wait, another site says it's hogwash. Now there's a word that show's my age.  They're not splitting up it says.  A third site says "maybe".

And what's up with that term Brangelina.  These people have names.  Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.  Why didn't they call them Angerad or Pittlie or, geez I don't know Brad and Angelina.

It's like they're a corporation or something.  Brangelina Inc.

They're rich enough to be one.  And now it seems they've come to a parting of the ways.  What a couple of assets.  Assets...not asshats.

So what do you think set it off?   Did Angelina want to adopt more kids?  Did Brad refuse to shave that silly goaty-looking goatee off?  Woah!  Talk about your feather dusters.

Who knows.

Does anyone really care?

If you ask me, it's only a matter of time before one is telling the other those three little words...

If you ask me, and I guess you have, Angelia got more of an I.D. than Brad in their brand. Wonder if this will continue to play out in their settlement?

Me-Me: Oh, I'll bet yes, if she gets the majority of the time with the kids. Brad will get the majority of time with George Clooney.

Say it isn't so! The fantabulous couple of all time can't be splitting up!

33 doesn't divide evenly. Whatever will they do?

And I like Pittlie. They should've gone with that one. They might still be together.

heh heh

If ever my mop resembled Angelina Jolie, I would have only two thoughts on the matter. One, the drugs have kicked in and two, "baby come back."

Ah, there's kids in the mix, so not making easy jokes, but you think these showbiz types would learn to wait before rushing headlong into having kids, marrying, etc. (Brangelina isn't (aren't?) married, are they?). But no. Can't say I thought this one would last forever...

Quirks: I lied; it's 6: 3 adopted and 3 together. I think the beard's to blame...for the break-up, not the kids.

Don: I gotta get me some of those drugs. What are they? Uh, not that my wife looks like a mop, mind you, far from it. She just doesn't use one.

Kablooey: Nope, they aren't married. But they're gonna split $366m. At that rate they'll each have more than I'll ever hope to make. How about you?

That swiffer commercial makes me crazy! Both the commercial and Brad's goatee have got to go!
All this joint-name stuff (Brangelina, Bennifer) is ridiculous. Just be glad Dick York didn't marry Hedda Hopper.

CL: Couldn't agree more. That song's been in my head for days now! And that beard looks like a feather duster.
nonamedufus said…
Mr. K: Yeah, Hopyork'a a real clunker. mean...Dickhead! That's perfect!!! lol

wow, I was wonderin about them two .... I like them and I think they should get out of the limelight and say goodbye to their acting careers and get a real job working on their family. I'd hate to see them two split and hear all the crap from the media . I hate bull shit .
nonamedufus said…
Jackie: Thanks for your comment. Weird stuff, eh? The latest story sees Brad and Jennifer back together. Sheesh, how can people believe this stuff.
Jackie said…
Hi, we can't believe it cause in the world real people aren't actors . Most people don't know what it is to be a movie star , at least I don't .

Jackie: But people spend money on those silly magazines. They just can't seem to get enough of the National Enquirer, etc. Sad.

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.
