I Couldn't Belive He Compared Me to Nicole!

I was impressed by how many of you correctly guessed that Sarah McLachlan graduated from Queen Elizabeth High. Nicely done! Of course, my Canadian sister-cousins, Christina and Sarah could name famous Canadians until they were blue in the face, so they win for question #2! I must admit I didn't realize the Canadian heritage of several of those people. Learn something new every day.

So the morning after my sister, Kathryn, and her husband, Stu arrived in Halifax, we all went for a drive to see my Grandpa. Seeing as how it was sunny outside, I promptly put on my sunglasses as I stepped out of the B&B. Seeing as how my sunglasses are as big as my head, Stu promptly declared that I looked like Nicole Richie. Having informed him that that was insulting, Stu said, "Or maybe Lindsay Lohan?" Even worse, Stu! It's not just those girls that wear gi-normous glasses, I informed him. It's just that those girls are on the cover of every mag. Later, Taylor wisely pointed out that the resurgence of the giant sunnies has sure come in handy for those that are attempting to hide their drugged out eyes. Note: I have nothing to hide. I just like that full coverage for my sensitive blue eyes. Oh, and I think I look cool. There, I said it.

So this got me thinking about Nicole, Paris, Lindsay, Britney, et al. I guess my question today is more of a discussion starter. Who are you the most sick of hearing about? Tom and Oprah's couch? Paris "changing" after those 20-some days in prison? Brangelina? Pray, tell...

I'm sick of hearing about stars who go to rehab as an image saver. Rehab should be serious- not a PR move! I'm also sick of "exhaustion" as a medical condition... it's just a PR way of saying someone passed out because of anorexia, drugs, alcohol, a killer hangover, or whatever!

Paris Hilton. Gag.
Lindsey Lohan is getting up there on the annoying list, too. And she was such a sweet little girl back in her Disney movie days...

I'm not really in the "loop" of Hollywood per se, but I have to admit that everytime I see Paris Hilton or hear "That's Hot", it's like fingernails down a chalkboard. Oh, and does anyone else feel as sorry as I do for Britney...she looks like a really bad stripper, and I think she buys her wigs from K-mart.

Britney. When I think of those innocent little boys I just want to cry.

Our interest in celebrities is sick. We just perpetuate the sickness. What sad role models many celebs and star athletes are for our children! I think the celeb influence on the fashion world is really upsetting - clothing seems to get more far out and in my opinion uglier every year - harder and harder to find cute classy things. And don't all laugh at this comment!
