Professional blogging is a demanding mistress. The hardest part? The severe, but sexy, CBT. Whoops wrong mistress. Anyway, the hardest part of blogging is finding sufficient fodder. A story with enough substance to sustain a post. Sometimes you can get around this problem by putting two smaller stories together. Lesser bloggers call these things ânoonersâ or âunnecessary news round-ups"). But these bloggers hate you and are just looking for an opportunity to rape your dog. Accordingly, my attempt to squeeze multiple news turds into one presentable fecal post shall be called, âSee What Sticksâ Leading off, Mira Sorvino has a strict test for nannies because she was traumatized by her care-giver as a child:
"I actually had a very strange experience when I read The Diary of Anne Frank as a child. We had a German housekeeper babysitting for us, and when I'd finished the book, I was crying. In an effort to comfort me, she told me, 'Oh no, this is all lies."Wow, thatâs quite a hard exam: Question 1: Are you a nazi? No? Congratulations. Here's my baby. In related news, dad Paul Sorvino stands by his hiring decision, claiming the German nanny got the kids to school on time. And the two in this one two punch of comedy: The Spice Girls. Yes! My third reference to the Spice Girls in less than three weeks. Today, we learn that Ginger Spice is the worst liar of all time. Geri Halliwell has laughed off reports of infighting with a long, but dubious, statementâ "That's a load of crap. It's almost a joke. It's pathetic and silly that people choose to write silly things. It's really comical actually, because we've never gotten on better. It's the biggest laugh ever - it's like hanging around with your best buddies. We're just rolling around with laughter the whole time, we lift each other up." Seriously, this sounds exactly like the lies every nervous criminal tells in old time gangster pictures: "Honest Boss. I was jokinâ. Theyâre crazy I tell ya. Itâs a laugh. Thatâs what it is. Honest. Biggest laugh ever. We werenât doinâ nothing. Everybodyâs been acting all friendly-like." Watching the latest video, there could be all sorts of reasons for Spice Girl feuds:
There are gaps in the fictional universe that multiply from one film to the next.
Most people have a pretty basic idea of what it's like to be a parent.
Given everything we know, there's cause to be worried about these movies.
There's no shortage of downright absurd conspiracy theories out there.
