Slow News Day

It was a slow news day around here, so I thought you'd be more interested in some "off the beaten path" pop culture nuggets than how long it took my chicken to defrost for supper or how many times I had to run Carson's baseball pants through the washer to get out all the red dirt.

1) Kate Middleton slightly disappointed the fashion crowd when she arrived at the St. Patrick's Day parade wearing basically the same outfit for the third year in a row.  Gasp.  This year, however, her hemline was observed to be a bit longer, as the Queen had recently requested that Kate keep her knees covered in public.  The next time you think you have in-law problems, please know that, at least, Buckingham palace is not calling you out for showing too much knee cap.  Bless her heart.  Also, in the royal news, Prince William has knighted the doctor, who delivered Prince George, with the ceremonial sword. The same doctor has also served as the Queen's gynecologist since 1990.  These royal gynecological factoids are things you just don't hear on the Headline News cycle.
  
2) Justin Bieber was arrested, most recently, for DUI and resisting arrest, while joy riding in a rented Lamborghini after a day of smoking pot, drinking beer, and taking Xanax.  Children growing up in show business is something that often turns out so very well.  These Mugshot Mugs are for sale online for $10.99 each and are available in all of your favorite child stars.  Collect them all! 
 

3) For all of you, 80's music fans, this story should be of disappointing interest to you.  A bench warrant has been issued for our beloved Anita Baker for her failure to show up in court yesterday.  Anita is being accused by a painting and decorating company of not paying the $15,000 owed to them for services they rendered in decorating her large Detroit home.  Anita hears them "calling out her name", but "I feel no shame", she seems to be saying.  Sweet Love, Anita.....pay your bills, girl. 
4) Ancestory.com has discovered that George Clooney and Abraham Lincoln are first-half cousins five times removed as Clooney's line can be traced back to Lincoln's maternal grandmother, Lucy Hanes.  I will let you draw your own conclusions on who got what in the whole beauty/brains thing. 
                                     

5) Well, they've created a "Barbie type" doll using more realistic proportions, so that little girls won't have unattainable beauty expectations.  I'm not sure this one is accurate either.  When Barbie gets some mounded plastic hanging over those bathing suit bottoms, little hairs on her chin, and bosoms that point more towards the south, then we'll deem her realistic enough for the children.    



I hope your Friday is fabulous!!

  1. First of all... love your blog! Secondly, the best thing I have found to get the red dirt out of white baseball pants... Iron Out Rust Stain Remover. Had to get it at Lowe's. It smells horrendous...and be careful when you open the bottle, cause the powder kinda puffs out... but it works!
