For some reason, a couple of you have been spam-booted today, including the fab Laura, and I don’t know why. If you’re posting comments and they’re not appearing, let me know.
And this is for all the mothers, struggling hard every day to do the best job we can. On days when it’s difficult, I always ask myself one question:
What would Sharon Stone do?

I’m assuming there’s a photo or video of Sharon Stone that my company is preventing me from seeing on my work computer. I’ll have to imagine what she’s up to.
In any case, did you see the article in Slate about the profile in Esquire of Angelina Jolie? Phew.

It’s a clip from “Casino,” showing Sharon at the absolute peak of her mothering skills — the scene where she’s doing lines of coke off a mirror in front of her daughter, looks up and says, “You shouldn’t do this,” and then hoovers up some more.
James Woods is pretty funny in it, too.

I was considering doing some mean mothering yesterday when I was creating the birthday card announcing the gift of a flock of geese and some tree seedlings for my son. I was considering saying, “Happy Birthday, you have too much crap anyway, so here’s your gift.”
Speaking of James Woods (I think both he and Sharon Stone are in Mensa, by the way) I was reading an article about one of my least favorite actresses, Kirstie Alley, while waiting for my kid to finish with the orthodontist, and there’s Kirstie saying she does not have any one man in her life right now, but she fancies hooking up with someone pockmarked, like James Woods. I wonder if he fancies hooking up with a scientologist who claimed she weighed 200, lost 75 pounds, is five foot eight, but still looks pretty hefty.

That Sharon Stone clip is hilarious.
Man, I go on vacation, and y’all stop commenting. I feel so needed.
Now. I must compose evil hate email to Delta. You know, the airline that gave our seats away on our connecting flight, forcing us to drive home from Cincinnati.
Oh, LA mary, I read that Esquire piece during my (all damned day) travels. What’s your phew about, her, or the weirdly-written article?

The article. It’s nonsensical.

Yeah. That was my thought. An Angelina Jolie interview could stand by itself; no need to try to tie in a bunch of 9/11 stuff, especially when it doesn’t work.
