Slow news days in the world of gossip rags
Everyone in the news profession, and by now the public, know what a “slow news day” is. It’s no different with the gossip rags.
Robert: 8 lives and counting
Robert has been with me a long time: 15 years, 2 months, my time; 77-80 years, his time. Although I knew the day was coming to say goodbye, it was something I never wanted to think about it.
Say it isn’t so, Mel Blue Eyes
Over the years I’ve done a fair bit of swooning over Mel Gibson.
Cute, sexy, funny Mel. In his heyday he was box office gold.
But now it seems Mel has hit upon a rough spot.
Has he always been a racist and a bully but knew enough to keep his mouth shut so no one noticed?
I’m not your honey, sweetheart, darlin’…
This is going to come off as sounding real grouchy, and maybe even a gal my age should be grateful for whatever unprovoked endearments waft my way.
Read royal hats to know what’s coming next
Do you remember back a generation or so when no one — at least on this side of the pond — paid much attention to the goings on of Britain’s royal family?
These people were not the stuff of tabloid fodder. For one thing, they were and are not particularly attractive people and the women wear really dumb looking hats.
Food for thought on a rainy day
Road resurfacing, litter, jobs, utilities, new construction, traffic, unreliable cable service, sewage backup and historic district regulations are O.K. topics, but they can’t stand up to a tomato sandwich.
Mother Goose never had it so rough
But now, there lurks other dangers to goosedom. They still might be under federal wildlife protection, but that’s just on paper.
Politicians: Do not call my cell phone
But this is my message, for all the good it will do: If one does not have a published number it is for a reason; she guards her privacy.
It is my right to choose to whom I would like to talk, or which recorded message I can endure.
Golf lesson turns ugly
But, what is it with guys when they pick up a golf club? It’s like an instantaneous infusion of testosterone or a steroid drip.
You tell a lot about a woman by the contents of purse
“What would people think about me if they knew the contents of my purse?
So, I’m sitting at my desk at home at 10 p.m. on a Monday and I have emptied my purse on my desk. Can I really come clean?
