7 in touch?

the parentdears are in kenya. lindear is understandably concerned. i- a touchstone to reality- was at the ready with valuable reassurance:
lindear: oline, the parentdears are in kenya. i am understandably concerned. whatever shall i do?

oline: lindear, remember- angelina jolie goes to africa all the time! she went to africa to give birth! and that seemed downright foolhardy! but she made it out okay!
i'm beginning to think maybe there is such a thing as too many tabloids.

*gasps* No such thing as too many tabloids!! I miss your "Star" collection. Might make Mike go on a tabloid run while I'm recuperating from surgery.

next time you roll into town, the collection will be at the ready.

we're about to enter the year of us weekly, i don't know if that's two steps up or three steps down.

Ooh... That's a hard one. US Weekly tries to pretend that it's a legitimate entertainment magazine (a la "People") when it's really just a trashy tabloid.

ah meggie, how much do i love that you just called a tabloid "hard"?! as though it were an ancient convoluted text written in a dead language that must be deciphered before great moral truths can be gleaned.

Hey, there are great moral truths in tabloids. Perfect example: Bald Brit-Brit taking an umbrella to a car. The great moral truth: A bad haircut truly will drive a woman crazy.

i can deal with the revelations of the vieve's slutty past. however, such revelations of the pirate's deadbeat motherdom might very well push me over the edge. say it ain't so, dougO.
