I know, right? You're thrilled you know me.
Okay, first. Jon and Kate Plus 8. Or, Kate Being A Martyr Plus 8 and Jon Off Doing Something Else. Which is how it's been this season.
Okay. After watching this episode (and wiping up the drool of excitement when THEY WENT TO CHARM CITY CAKES!!! THEY PLAYED WITH MARY ALICE!!! I WANT TO PLAY WITH MARY ALICE!!!), I kind of think the whole drama is mostly contrived. I mean, thought that before, too, but the premiere was so depressing and practically ended with a custody agreement. This one was more, oh, let's give one parent a reason to go be on their own but they're all still living together so things must not be that bad. Except everybody is mopey.
(EXCEPT WHEN THEY GET TO PLAY WITH MARY ALICE!!!)
However, if they actually do break up, I'd like to offer a loving home for Aaden. I love that little kid.
I got to Grandpa's this morning, and yep. My flowers had been replanted. My artistic staggering? Gone. They're in a straight row now. DO NOT WANT.
Meanwhile, I'm having a teensy bit of trouble with this other-people-living-there part. As we established earlier, I DON'T LIKE PEOPLE TOUCHING MY STUFF.
I like people touching my countertop even less.
So apparently Mel Gibson got some Russian pregnant? And People.com is obsessed with it? They called in "experts" to discuss the doctrinal ramifications of Mel's little...um...slip, which seriously makes me wonder who their expert is. That Jesuit from the Colbert Report? That would be pretty cool. I love him. I kind of just want to follow him around. Maybe he could introduce me to the guy who plays the Captain on Criminal Intent.
Anyway, apparently Mel is forgoing Communion. Which is nice, although I don't really feel comfortable judging him. (Shut up. Sometimes I'm not judgemental.) But what's more concerning is that it appears that his little chapel? Is actually a weird new religion. They keep mentioning how they'll have to return to the "mainstream" Roman Catholic Church to get an annulment, etc.
I always thought it was just a really conservative community that offered a Tridentine Mass, not this weird "traditionalist" Catholic sect that's not normal Catholicism.
Huh. That's strange, and it makes Mel Gibson seem even more crazy.
I'm sneezing. This had better not be the cold that the Artist Formerly Known as the Boy brought home. I will kill him.
