News and Stuff

So, I know that I've been scarce lately. And I apologize. The kids and I have been sick non-stop since the beginning of July. Wildman has had back to back ear infections, I had a double ear infection, Supergirl had a bad cold then a stomach bug, then Wildman caught the stomach bug and then I caught the stomach bug. I had thought this week that we were finally all healthy and maybe out of the woods on being sick for a while. But Rock just called and told me that Supergirl has chicken pox.
You'll find me under my desk.

However, I found the Brangelina Twins' edition of People to be a treasure trove of interesting tidbits! Worth sharing:

This quote from Pam Anderson - "I'm reading On the Road by Jack Kerouac. I love him - I can't get enough. And Edith Warton. I carry her with me to read her short stories on the plane. I'm reading all the time, which is great because my kids are 10 and 12, and they're big readers, too. I think it's through example." BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Right, Pam. Tell you what, I'll spot you your reading example as long as you also recognize your example when your sons (I think her kids are boys, aren't they?) each bring home a stripper with fake tits and "the only nice thing you can think of to say about her is that all her tattoos are spelled correctly". (Bonus points if you can name the movie!)

Apparently, Bobby Brown is singing country music now. The hell?!

There was ANOTHER article about a man murdering his wife. Oh, excuse me - she's just missing in St. Maarten. The police aren't even sure a crime has been committed, but here's what the hubby has to say, "I did not kill her, I did not have anything to do with her disappearance. I am a victim here, too." Uh-huh. (Side note - he's the owner of a "medical animation" business. WHAT is medical animation? I can't think of two words that go together less.) Okay men, stop murdering your wives! Divorce! Live it, love it, embrace it. Rock and I have a pact - if either of us starts seriously thinking about murdering the other, we will ask for a divorce. Which will be immediately granted. "I want a divorce." "But WHY?" "Because I'm thinking about killing you. I have a plan." "Divorce granted! You can have the kids, the house, whatever you want, baby. I'll be out by the end of the week."

Lauryn Hill - This story made me very sad. She's living in the suburbs with her mom, raising five kids. Rohan Marley, who says that he is "spiritually together" with Hill and who fathered the five children, lists himself as "single" on MySpace. Oh Lauryn. Anybody who lists himself as single anywhere and doesn't live with you and his five kids is most definitely not with you. She deserves so much better.

That pact is brilliant. I'll have to make a similar one with Torsten.

Also, that Lauryn Hill thing IS sad. I hope she's not deluding herself.

I can't think of the movie, but it's driving me crazy!

I love your pact with Rock! I may have to steal it and use it here, too.

OMG, I had no idea about Lauryn Hill. I really used to like her (esp with the Fugees). Wow, how sad.

I hope the disease ridden vibes vacate your house SOON!

The pact is hilarious. My girlfriend Hedge and I have a pact regarding the husbands - if called upon, the other will show up with shovels, lime and garbage bags - no questions asked.

I picked up that mag too, but haven't finished reading it yet. Love the pact!

Shelly said...

Devan - thanks!

Shelly said...

Jess - thanks! I encourage it for all married couples. Murder is never the answer!

I agree, she really seems wacked out.

Shelly said...

Shelly - Since no one has gotten it, I'll tell you in my next post. : )

I know - I really liked the Fugee's too. And she is SO pretty. She could do so much better.

Gina - "Friends help you move. Real friends help you move bodies."

Shelly said...

Fiona - enjoy it! The twins pictures are good, but the article is not much. Glad you like the pact.

Alice said...

"murder is never the answer!" heeeeeheheeeheehee.

oh man. i had such a crush on lauryn hill in college. i want better for her.

Shelly said...

Alice - I make fun of it, but it is a trend I'm seeing and it does kind of scare me. No, Rock will never kill me. But it seems like every issue of People magazine has another "missing/ dead wife, suspicious husband" story.

Me too! She was awesome. I want better for her, too. I mean, five kids is great and all, but five kids with a man who thinks he's single? You're deluding yourself.

Shelly Overlook said...

BTW, I told my hubby about your pact with Rock and now we came up with our own. It goes...

"You know all those 48 Hours Mystery shows I watch? Well, I've been putting together a book of do's and don't's..." then the other person knows death is imminent - divorce attorney calls go out the next day!

You are so funny!

Shelly said...

Shelly - LOL! That is terrific. Thank you very much!
