Things Are Crazy All Over

- Anna Nicole Smith is buried. For now.
- Britney Spears is on a downward spiral.
- Angelina Jolie's adopting a Vietnamese baby. Will she also adopt Anna Nicole's baby?
- Lindsey Lohan is (presumably) still in rehab. Who is fighting with Hilary Duff while she's away?
- Justin Timberlake's star is (inexplicably) rising.
- Nicole Richie's weight is not rising.
- Antonella Barba's revealing photos have shown up all over the Internet.
- The "debutante" bank robbers were captured in Georgia. Now, let's round up the armed puppy nappers in Los Angeles.
- Miss USA was a coke ho.
- Lisa Nowak (the 'Fatal Attraction' astronaut) has finally been charged with kidnapping but not attempted murder.
- Ryan O'Neal and his son had (another) shootout in the house.

But ... we'll always have Paris. Unless she goes to jail for her crappy driving.

Don't mind me, it's the Full Moon and lunar eclipse.

Without the self-important,
The exhibitionists, the hangers-on,
Whatever would the voyeurs
Gaze upon and
What would we ordinary souls
Gossip about?

Give us our tabloid headlines
And 24/7 Court TV, for
Otherwise we would go to work,
And come home and sleep, only
To get up and do it all again tomorrow,
Never knowing how the other half

How good are you with money? Find out if you are destined to be rich.

You Are Okay With Money

You're about average with money, which means you probably don't have a lot of it.
Your instincts tell you to stay out of debt and spend wisely...
But you don't always listen to your instincts!
With a little more effort, you could have a nice little nest egg. You just have to control your spending.

***You Are Great With Money***

You know the value of a dollar - and you save and spend wisely.
By living below your means, you've set yourself up for a rich future.
And while it may hurt to sacrifice now, you'll probably have plenty of money later on.
You're on your way to riches - just keep it up.

I watched a program about the Hilton sisters. They have two things going for them and in the long run might turn out okay once they get over their immaturity humps. Mom and Dad. Solid parents who have taken an active part in their lives.

Hey SJ, Looking through the online tabloids make me dizzy and confused. How do people stay interested in these stories?

Thanks for being one of the few who have commented on my story. That is part of what me was talkin about. A collection of different interconnected stories from around the dinner table.

Any and all commentary will be appreciated.

Without celebrities, a lot of tabloid rags and tabloid TV shows would disappear into oblivion.

But then, what would the people at water coolers and on blogs have to talk and rant about - oh yeah, Dubya!

They only say that because they don't ask the REAL questions. Like, "What is the highest number of years you've supported a boyfriend 'between jobs?' "

The only time I ever see an actual tabloid is in the checkout line at the grocery store. Yet, I know this Tacky Tabloid Trivia. How is that? Strange days.

Scary be setting off on a strange and potentially wonderful journey. Write on, dude.

Littlebird, do we know the same old boyfriend? LOL.

Mike, we'll always have Dubya -- as long as somebody writes words for him to stumble through reading.:)

Rain, how are you today? I thought about you and your loss a lot last night. It's so damn hard.
