Why are we so nuts for celebrities?

It seems like anyone that is ‘famous’ like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie or Britney Spears, can’t do anything without it ending up on a tabloid front page or entertainment show. Why is this? Why are we so darn obsessed with celebrities? I don’t understand it personally.

I mean, they put their pants on one leg at a time just like you and I do. They even use the bathroom just like you and I do and I bet sometimes it doesn’t smell very pleasant either, just like you and I. Didn’t we learn anything from Elvis Presley? This poor guy couldn’t even go out into his own yard without someone going nuts because he was there.

We push so much on to these celebrities that it’s no wonder they end up turning to alcohol,or temporary insanity, if you will. Put yourself in their shoes and think about it for a minute or two. Could you live like that? Could you remain ‘Normal’, what ever that may be. Maybe the celebrities are the normal ones and the fans are the ones with problems. What do you think???


I thought this was so cute that I just had to share it with you.  Sounds like something a woman would do, don’t you think??

The doctor, after an examination, sighed and said, ‘I’ve got some bad news. You have cancer, and you’d best put your affairs in order.’ The woman was shocked, but managed to compose herself and walk into the waiting room where her daughter had been waiting.

‘Well, daughter, we women celebrate when things are good, and we celebrate when things don’t go so well. In this case, things aren’t well. I have cancer. So, let’s head to the club and have a martini.’  After 3 or 4 martinis, the two were feeling a little less somber. There were some laughs and more martinis.

They were eventually approached by some of the woman’s old friends, who were curious as to what the two were celebrating. The woman told her friends they were drinking to her impending end, ‘I’ve been diagnosed with AIDS. ‘ The friends were aghast, gave the woman their condolences and beat a hasty retreat.

After the friends left, the woman’s daughter leaned over and whispered, ‘Momma, I thought you said you were dying of cancer, and you just told your friends you were dying of AIDS! Why did you do that?’

‘Because I don’t want any of those bitches sleeping with your father after I’m gone.’

And THAT, my friends, is what is called, ‘Putting Your Affairs In Order.’

From tools to toys

Have you ever played with “Shrinky Dinks?” You know what I’m writing about don’t you? Shrinky Dinks are pieces of plastic that you can color with markers, cut into shapes, and shrink them to 1/10th the original size by putting them in the oven for a few moments. I had forgotten all about those fun little “crafts” that I did as a kid until my hubby told me that he was thinking about buying some heatshrink supplies from buyheatshrink.com. He showed me the website, and that’s when I remembered the fun Shrinky Dink things I had done as a kid. I felt rather bad, too, that I never did any of those craft activities with my kids. I think that I didn’t realize that they were even still available for sale!

More kitchen accessories!!

By now, you know I always shop around before I buy. That’s good sometimes and it’s bad at other times. For example, wanting to “spruce up” our home, I decided to do a bit of redecorating the kitchen with some new accessories. I found a lot of kitchen accessories online and now I have to decide which items I want from which site. And how much am I willing to pay? One of the wine racks I found costs more, but sort of fits ‘me’ better, if you know what I’m saying.

I found a great pot rack to hang over the kitchen island that is just what I have been looking for. And a cute cutting board; it matches everything else beautifully. I’m telling you, online shopping is addictive to me. I love wood accents everywhere and especially in my kitchen. I even found an awesome spice rack that I can already picture sitting on my kitchen counter. Looks like I’m going to be a happy girl when all of these kitchen accessories are delivered! My kitchen is going to be gorgeous!!!!
