Monday Listicles

Spring is here.

I can tell because everything is blooming and people seem cheerful. Also because I am scrambling to write this in time after a weekend spent in the back yard, planting. Followed by evenings spent panicking about having to wear short sleeves soon. But I will worry about this later.

First there is a small matter of Listicles. Last time we talked road and you came up with some amazing lists. I enjoyed reading them all and can’t wait to see what kind of silly celebrity comparisons you come up with this week.

Before all that I need to tell you something truly shocking. While reading Deborah’s list last week I realized we have never done a list of 10 books! Outrageous, no? So to restore balance in universe and blogoland, next week we are doing A LIST OF 10 BOOKS. Feel free to put your spin on it.

And now, insipred by trashy magazines:

Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!


10 reasons celebrities are just like us

1. They wake up every morning.

Then they probably get it on with their celebrity lover. How they do that without peeing of brushing teeth first is beyond me.

2. They have breakfast.

Except they drink their coffee while it is still hot.

3. They go to work.

Singing, dancing, acting, or just playing themselves in a reality show must be very hard work. I never tried it, so I cannot tell.

4. They go to Starbucks

They go in, order and walk out with their beverage. But I doubt they feel as guilty as I do for spending $4.25.

5. They shop.

Probably more like Rodeo Dr and less Gap outlet on sale.

6. They drive cars

But they don’t have superfly minivans like me.

7. They fall in love and get married

Except they can afford a divorce when the going get’s tough and give up too soon.

8. They tweet and post photos on Instagram

Only they are not near as funny or talented as the bloggers I follow.

9. They grow old

But they don’t have the joy or doing it naturally.

10. Their feet sweat too.

I look just like that ( in my mind) when I get my latte. Image source

      That’s right, Stasha. You ARE a celebrity. Love your comment, Bruna, and love your list, Stasha, especially the sweaty feet, and the part about the bloggers you follow who are funnier and more talented than celebrities. It’s true!

    you *are* a celebrity: you’re the listicle lady. and that lady with a big dog. and that lady with a camera. You’re practically already on the cover of US, swear to god. Celebs ain’t got nothing on you – we all saw those pictures you took of yourself: you are a minivan driving, horseback riding, glama-mama. so there.

    And I do agree, the tweets I get from my blogger friends are far more interesting and worthwhile then pretty much 99% of celebs.

    I think the you are right about celebrities. My philosophy about life is that we are all given the same gifts. The only difference is how we use them. Some of us sit on this treasure box starving, because it never occurs to just open the it. Others start using the gifts freely and benefit all the time. All is a matter of choice. We all are different expressions of the same thing.

    #1 – always cracks me up when I see a movie or tv show where they wake up and go at it. I’m always thinking ‘Oh no, I’d totally have to pee!’ That and brush my teeth, without question.

    I’m certain I look like that when getting my latte, too. Only with brown hair. :)

    I wish some of the women would accept their graceful lines and wrinkles without the botox. They look absolutely terrible. Natural beauty, no matter the person’s age, is always better.

    They definitely miss out on the superfly minivans. Or in my case, a superfly extended van. I wonder what Angelina Jolie drives? Probably an extended hummer or something cool like that. Great list!

    Yay, I can’t wait for next week’s Listicle! I always wonder the same things about celebrities first thing in the morning. My husband is more than a little tired of my saying, “eww” when movies show scenes of people rolling over in the morning and French kissing the people next to them. Yuck. Toothpaste is a must.

    except my pants were green jogging style – because of course I have date with my trainer right after. and that’s why my hair was in a pony tail too. I mean, why fuss before the sytlist arrives, right?
