Headlines and Virgins

Aren't some headlines just so delicious that you don't want to ruin it by clicking to read the entire story? It's sure to disappoint. Like this one on Yahoo! News this morning:  "Christian Bale needs to work on anger issues, sister says."  Ya think???  Don't you love the above pic published in The Sun in the UK?  Like if they didn't circle Christian Bale we might be confused as to which one he is.  The other circled one is the sister who accused him of assaulting her and their mother. Listen, call me materialistic, but if my sibling had gazillions of dollars I'm kissing a lot of ass hoping they give me some, not filing assault charges and talking to the tabloids.  

In related news (okay, it's not remotely related but I can't think of a good segue) we took the girls to this indoor playroom and it was kind of cool because they blasted fun music instead of the "I Love You, You Love Me" variety that makes you want to dull the senses with a tumbler of straight vodka.  I was just commenting to a lady who works there how much I enjoyed the music when Madonna's "Like a Virgin" starts blaring.  At a playroom for children.  I like early Madonna as much as the next guy, but at a playroom?  Because of this, I vote them by far the coolest place to bring your kids. Ever.  I'm sure some tight ass mom has complained by now and it's been deleted from the loop.  (BTW -- Borderline, best Madonna song ever. Agreed?)


  1. Oh, Christian... It seems that the little scalawag he played in Newsies (oh, the crush I had on him) was a bit of foreshadowing.

    Love the playroom playlist! In terms of Madonna, do love Borderline, but have to say I'm a Like a Prayer girl myself.

    BTW, thanks for stopping by my blog. I've really enjoyed reading your unique and hilarious perspective, so I was tickled to have you stop by.

  2. agreed. borderline best early madonna song. now that i am a mom i really like ray of light too. sing it to my daughter and wonder if Madge loves Lourdes as much as I love my little squish.

  3. yes, i've too come public with my adoration of madonna. the borderline video played a huge role in my exhibitionistic development

  4. Oh, I am so crazy jealous of that play place! That's gotta bump Chicago up to at least 4th most miserable place to live in the world, wouldn't it? I love my Portland, but there's NO cool kids' play place, with or without Madonna.

  5. You know, without the circles I would have thought that Christian Bale was the person on the far right. ;)

    I do enjoy Madonna. But, I was always more into Warrant.... And that would have been hilarious to hear at a play place.

  6. I will not go to an indoor playroom unless they play Big Balls by AC/DC. Love your blog!
