The Perfect Ten: Strange Bedfellows


For a short period in the mid-nineties whenever anyone talked about odd romantic pairings, my mother would respond, "You never know... Julia Roberts married Lyle Lovett." Yes, she married and then quickly divorced him once she realized she was married to Lyle freakin' Lovett. The point is still the same, sometimes we mammals pair-up in perplexing combinations - my dog really used to be enamored with the cat. It took a good swift kick to get the two to take it outside and I would to stay awake at night wondering what a tabby cat mixed with a wiener dog (a Dash Cat?) might look like.

Celebrities are not immune to the lure of the different, often obsene either; hence the news that Mary-Kate Olsen is said to have cheated on her boyfriend with Jonah Hill. Not only are the two not in the same celebrity arena, the same social strata, or the same profit margin, even their shapes are diametrically opposed. Mary-Kate is constantly in danger of plunging through a random crack in the sidewalk and it pains me to watch Jonah Hill do anything strenuous. Place pictures of the two side-by-side and it looks like the number '10'. If you positioned multiple images of Jonah and Mary-Kate in one composition, I'm almost positive it would spell what the f*ck(?) in binary.

Oh well, to each their own, I suppose.

And this is why I love you!

Thank you for the kind words while I was away. Missed you too and screw Perez for ripping you off! But he kind of has to; not like he has any actual talent!

You're back! Yay! I missed you so much. I'm so sorry about your grandfather. I'm sure he's like you and has them rolling on the floor (clouds) with laughter in heaven. =)
