A Few Thoughts On Popular Culture
That's me! At Disney World! With my daughter!
Okay, no it's not. It's Emma Thompson and that was taken yesterday, supposedly, the day after the Golden Globes where Ms. Thompson famously removed her gorgeous, cruel high heels and...well, let me just give you the video:
So maybe Emma Thompson and I ARE the same person in a multi-universe sort of way. Taking off her shoes, drinking a martini, wearing overalls.
Well, okay, I doubt I'd go to Disney World the day after the Golden Globes and of course I'm neither English nor a world-famous actor nor thin and glamorous, but beyond that, sure. Yep.
Could be me.
So good morning. The day can't make up its mind as to rain or not-rain. The wound in my mouth is feeling much improved. I have things to do and a walk is in order.
Remember that book I was reading? The Fields: A Novel by Kevin Maher? Well, I finished it last night and the ending was just bizarre but I have to say I am not sorry I read the book and if happens to pass through your hands you might want to read it too. Story of an Irish lad in the 80's and it's all there- the huge family, the Church, the drinking, the joy, the...new age healing?
It's almost like three or four different books in one but I enjoyed it. It's not a perfect book and it's not a perfect life and it's not a perfect world but it kept my attention.
All right. Time to get moving. There's so much more I could discuss in the vein of popular culture including Robin Wright's sideboob moment at the Golden Globes, why some woman hasn't used shampoo in six years, why Oprah doesn't want you to know about her fat-busting technique, and several moments from last night's edition of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills but I WOULD NEVER BE CAUGHT DEAD WATCHING SUCH TRASH so I couldn't possibly have anything to say about that.
