Enough already

I am soooo soooo sick and tired of hearing about Tom and Katy and Suri and Britney and Kevin and Paris and Nicole and Branjelina and whoever the hell the other "it" people of the moment happen to be. It's not like I'm so damn serious that I want to hear only about the war in Iraq and how ridiculously high oil prices have gotten. I'm ok with hearing about the occasional celebrity siting, new movie premiere, sports star shenanigans and other lighthearted fare. But, seriously, enough of the obsession with the lives of people that happen to make movies for a living. They are NO DIFFERENT than you and I except they have gobs more money and think it's a good idea to inject obscene amounts of collagen into their lips and other body parts.

Well, I have to disagree with you just slightly (wink): Tom Cruise is a LOT different than you and me. I really wonder if being so famous has made lose his grip. Have you seen him lately? He laughs like a maniac, with crazed eyes and every tendon in his neck showing. Ugggh.

I agree with both you and Sandra.

Tom Cruise is not like me.

But I'd be just as happy never to hear of him again.

Ok - I stand corrected. Tom Cruise is NOT like us. But I think he got corrupted by the fame. I bet he was at least somewhat normal as a kid!

So why are these actors/actresses so newsworthy? Are there really people out there who care? Not in my circle of friends.....
Just blogging around and found yours. Read through the thirteen and saw this at the bottom. My boss and I just had this discussion yesterday about the amount of news about these same couples and who really needed to have this information in their lives.
