Afternoon! How’s it going for you? I had the most delicious and well-balanced lunch, which always makes me happy!
The ‘bulk’ of my meal was a spinach salad was grilled chicken.
A tiny side of grapes…
And an English muffin with a smear of cottage cheese….
I’ve been making a real effort to get in my 5-a-day fruits and veggies. You all know how much I heart granola and other carbs, so I’m making an effort to snack on fruits and veggies. I’m even keeping a running daily tally of my intake to make sure I reach my goal.
Do You Feel Sorry for Celebrities?
When I pulled this week’s issue of The Week out my mailbox last night, I screamed at the top of my lungs because look who was on the cover:
Much to the Husband’s annoyance, I rambled on about Mr. Robert Pattinson for about five minutes and read this article to him:

The article got me thinking…. do you feel sorry for celebrities? Because I do. I think it’s sad they can’t really live normal lives. In this day and age, it’s impossible for them to do anything without being photographed, and if they mess up…. it’s all over the news! I think about how many times I’ve screwed up, and if everyone in the world knew about it, I’d be so embarrassed. Its sad our fixation on celebrities keep them from living normal lives.
For example, I feel so sorry for Britney Spears. I think she probably had a natural disposition to mental unrest that was exacerbated by her fame and fortune. And it’s a vicious cycle once they are in the tabloids. Everything they do is dissected until it blows up in their face (Lindsay Lohan, anyone?)
But… I read Perez Hilton. I buy gossip mags. Aren’t I partly to blame for the cult of celebrity? I think I am.
If I saw Britney or Robert Pattinson in real life, I would probably scream hysterically. I think it would be a knee jerk reaction, and I would feel sooooo bad about it later. Once, I met Ricky Martin and I asked him to kiss me — he didn’t, obviously (this was like 1998, in my defense)!
Do you feel sorry for celebrities? Have you ever seen a celebrity in real life? What did you do?
