a photography challenge

traveling this holiday season can be an overwhelming experience. baggage is lost, flights are missed, airplane food is mediocre at best. traveling by car means long hours in one seat with kids asking the never ending question, "are we there yet?".
one thing that can brighten your trip is the wacky people that are also traveling. it makes me wonder while people choose travel as a great time to break out the crazy clothing. my brother david sent me this picture a while back of a woman they saw in the salt lake city airport when they were waiting to pick up a cousin when he returned home from his mission. does she think the airport doubles as a nightclub? it makes me smile to this day.

so bloggers, keep your eyes open this holiday season for the crazy people that you see while traveling, while at a gas station, while at a restaurant, concerts, family get togethers...anywhere. send me the pic and i will post them on this blog. try to be discreet, or not so discreet. bonus if you are in the picture too! it'll be fun!
ps-david, try and find that picture of that chick popping her boyfriend's back zits while at an amusement park. that would be a quality posting!

holidays schmolidays

a holiday equation:
if holidays=food, and food=family get togethers, and family get togethers= crazy family members, then, holidays=crazy family members.
every family has got at least one wacky family member. and if you don't know who it is, then it is you. the wackiest member of thomas' family on his mother's side is his great-uncle george. george has told everyone for a number of years that he is a doctor and he is at the point now, where i think he believes it himself. the only thing that i think he is a doctor of is bad toupees and green velvet blazers.

i hope everyone takes this moment to reflect on their wacky family members and ponder the fact that, families truly can be together forever. ahhh!

the fall of the house of spederline

the most important entertainment news of the year is here, and it takes me a week to blog about it? forgive me. travel, illness, extensive research on the subject have delayed my blogging. BRITNEY FILED FOR DIVORCE! i typed that with such GLEE! with the utmost amount of relish a keyboard will allow! when i heard the news i couldn't stop screaming like a beehive girl at the thought of her first stake dance! (sorry nat, i hope your ears have recovered.)
where do i begin? i guess i could give thanks. thank goodness britney came to her senses after only two years, instead of whitney houston's 13 years with bobby brown. thanks to lynn spears for insisting on the 60 page pre-nuptial agreement that pretty much limits fed-ex to $300,000 cash, no gifts over $10,000 and half the malibu mansion(on the market for $13 million, approximately 6ish mill would go to kev.) sheer brilliance. i must give thanks to much music canada, which filmed the exact moment that fed-ex was texted with the divorce news. i am so glad that we could all share that moment together. and of course, joel mchale of the soup, whose humor and wit helped carry my wounded soul through the last two years of hardship and hilarious wannabe rapper-isms.
i have my own ideas on why this divorce happened now and the events that led up to the divorce. first of all, reported in december of 2005, just months after little sean preston was born, kevin is rumored to have been forced to move out into a hotel. this is based on claims of smoking, cigarettes and other smokeable things, in the house around sean p. also, a contributing factor to that marriage hiatus is kev's excessive partying(with female friends) and constant spending of brit's cash. only britney is allowed to make ridiculous purchases with britney's money. divorce could have been impending doom for the federlines at this point, but brit's pride was still inact(loosely intact, being held together by a weak bikini top spaghetti strap) and then of course she got knocked up again.

that kevin must be quite irresistable. another factor to the breakup is kevin's so-called rap career. that could break down any marriage. the constant promotion of the album has led to little time together as a family. in fact, i cannot recall seeing britney and kevin together for at least the last six months. anyone??? and britney doesn't seem to be very skilled at avoiding the paparazzi, so that cannot be used as an excuse. i truly believe that britney did not file paperwork on the divorce until last week so that jayden james could be born within the bonds of holy matrimony and that she wanted to see kev succeed in his rap career so he would have some sort of income or accomplishment to show his kids and the world. too bad that didn't happen. maybe he will be big in japan or germany. like david hasselhoff. or so that he couldn't blame his failure on her and sue for defamation or something legalese. these are all just ideas of course.
britney future looks very bright at this point. people everywhere are pulling for her to make a comeback. i just can't wait to see her abs in a few months. i hope they are killer. babies will do crazy things to your muscle tone.
will we ever see this again???

a token picture of britney in a hat. probably the best one ever since she always INSISTS on wearing them and they never look good.

one of my fave pics of brit, pure as the driven snow.

"now which one of my 17 kids are you? oh good, you've got your name on your shirt. thanks! now if i can only get the others to do the same."

here's the game: let's try and guess who britney's new beau will be. i give her 6 months to find someone new. any ideas???

a last thought: how long will it take for kevin to blow through his divorce settlement? and what will be the first ridiculous thing that he buys, post-divorce?

when will fidelity be in vogue?

i tried to find the worst possible picture of ryan...

and the absolute most gorgeous picture of reese.

where to begin??? the celebrity world was shocked this week by the announcement of reese witherspoon filing for divorce. yikes. i must admit i was saddened by the news, but at the same time, i am becoming very desensitized by the plethora of celebrity divorces. if it was "in" last year to get married and get pregnant, then it is "in" this year to divorce very publicly. my humble opinion on the reese/ryan demise? i think he cheated. through my extensive research(pink is the new blog), i have compiled information that would lead me to believe that ryan was sloppy about hiding his mistress and the whole world and reese found out. this also makes me think that he wanted reese to find out. being discreet shouldn't be too hard; don't go in public and openly canoodle someone that isn't your wife. this brings me to my next point, EVERYONE IN HOLLYWOOD CHEATS! and i am so sick of it. i have compiled a list of cheaters:
prince charles and princess diana
rudy giuliani
brad pitt and angelina jolie
donald trump
owen wilson and kate hudson
julia roberts and danny moder
elizabeth taylor and eddie fisher
kobe bryant
woody allen and his former step-daughter soon-yi previn (ICK!)
jude law
tom cruise and penelope cruz
marc anthony and j.lo
shannon elizabeth
meg ryan and russell crowe
chad michael murray
i could probably go on for a while. they won't get any sympathy from me. they better just button up those lips and dry those eyes in interviews on E! and just talk about the next project they have in the works. i can't handle anymore celebs milking their lack of honesty and commitment as "true love" and "what a hard time they were going through". blah blah blah. i am emotionally severing myself from celebrity personal lives. except for reading blogs about celebrities, writing blogs about celebrities, reading magazines, watching tv entertainment news programs, chatting with friends about celebrities, and watching a zillion pseudo awards shows about celebrities. a girl's got to have a hobby, right?
furthermore, if anything happens to gwen and gavin and tim and faith, i will probably start wearing acid washed jeans and splatter paint t-shirts in protest of the lack of reverence for marriage. so, to the rosdales and the mcgraws, please don't make me take my threat to heart!

love it!!! makes me warm and fuzzy like drinking hot cocoa and reading dear abby!

so cute i could puke my guts out!

speaking of puking my guts out... doesn't k-fed look a little too much like vanilla ice in these shots?

i listened to a few minutes of k-fed's album "playing with fire" and a few minutes was all i needed. i am not rap aficionado, but i do know that GOOD rap is more that just swearing, talking about drinking and smoking and making lewd and lascivious comments about women and that was all i heard on his album. but since most new rap these days is about swearing, talking about drinking and smoking, and making lewd and lascivious comments about women, if he weren't mr. britney spears, he would fit right in and be ultra succesful.

happy birthday to emily jean hansen curfew!
can you believe this was 5 years ago?
