What a crummy, rainy, yucky day it is outside today. You've got to love New England! On Saturday it was 90 degrees and humid. Yesterday and today? About 50 to 60, cold, wet, dreary...as they say, if you don't like the weather today in New England, just wait till tomorrow. (you'll like it even less...haha)...okay, they don't say that part, I do.
Anyway, moody Mondays bring about a contemplative state in me, so...some celebrity centered random thoughts:
Paris Hilton: oh okay, I know, I know...not really something very deep to start off this discussion with, but I'm moody, so I read celebrity gossip to cheer me up. Because when you're feeling down in the dumps, there's nothing like a hotel heiress going to prison to cheer you up. She turned herself into jail last night to serve her 20+ day sentence. She is supposedly not going to receive special treatment, and is going to serve the entire sentence. And I'll believe it when I see it. Now, all things said, I actually feel slightly badly for her. Don't get me wrong, I think she's a spoiled brat, who was driving "recklessly" (aka DRUNK) and lost her license, and then continued to drive, because she figured the rules didn't apply to her. I don't pity her for very long, but, I put myself in her very expensive shoes, and I feel for her. Throw me in jail for ONE day and I'd freak out, and I'm not NEARLY as high maintenance as she is. This is certainly punishment, no doubt. And overall, spoiled brat or not, this is all her parents' fault...they should have thought her how to better handle her wealth.
Speaking of Paris, I watched the MTV Movie Awards last night, and man, did they single her out to completely humiliate her, WHILE she was sitting in the audience. I have to give her props for not storming out, and if I were Sarah Silverman, I'd hire a bodyguard, because I think the Hiltons might have a hit out on her at this point.
Now, about the MTV Awards...how horrible were they? I'm a sucker for awards shows, so I tend to Tivo them, and watch them with my finger glued to the fast forward button. I think I watched this particular awards show in record time. Did I ever really used to find that type of humor funny? Am I just getting old or was it just bad? And how can actors of the caliber of Jack Nicholson lower themselves to be a part of such a childish display of...of...I have no idea what to call it. It was just bad. Not funny, not imaginative, not even slightly enjoyable, just bad. Or am I just getting old?
I will, however, give credit to Johnny Depp showing up, because you could totally tell it wasn't his scene, and he didn't even do the red carpet thing, and wasn't even sitting in the audience, but obviously aware that he was going to win something, he showed up to thank his fans, and then promptly walked off the stage and probably ran to the safety of MTV world. That was cool.
Well, my pounding headache is making it way too hard to write coherently, so I'm going to leave you with this:
No matter how moody your Monday is today, at least you're not Paris Hilton.
