"You want to marry me, we'll marry" --Carly Simon

NEW YORK (Reuters) – After years of asking longtime companion Farrah Fawcett to marry him, actor Ryan O'Neal says she has finally agreed, even as she nears the end of her life after a long battle with cancer.

Okay, the poor woman is dying and I should leave her alone but... but... I can't. I just can't.

Oh, sure, it's a lovely gesture on Ryan's part but does anybody else read this news and think "How utterly pathetic?" For Ryan, I mean.

Put yourself in his shoes...

So, basically, the love of your life has FINALLY agreed to marry you now that she's on her deathbed. Because, hey, how long will she have to be married to you, anyway?


Meanwhile, how many of you have practiced Charlie's Angels poses in front of the mirror in the privacy of your room?

Um, thanks, but I don't want to hear what other things were done in your room because of Charlie's Angels or Farrah's poster.

In other tabloid news, a certain DC blogger has the most adorable shower curtain ever:

And another DC blogger, who self-disclosed her monkey feet,

clearly has no idea what true monkey feet are.

I'd give you details, but I'm still negotiating with TMZ.

Dude, it was from Target. You can even get a matching soap dispenser.

The last half of this post does sound like a teaser for TMZ... how much money did you get?

edder said...

Those feet have been attributed to wearing flip-flops too often. Poor little toes keep grabbing something that isn't there and over time, that's what you get.

And yeah, Farrah & Ryan...too sad.

What is the name of the nail polish?

At least you don't have thumb toes!

When I was little I used to play Charlies Angels. i would run around my neighborhood solving crimes. Seriously that was the best show ever!!

Shannon: Dude, it's fabulous!

Dmbosstone: Not enough.

edder: Wow, you folks are harsh. My whole point was that I've seen some ugly-ass feet and this ain't it.

Anonymous: Ha! No clue. TMZ doesn't pay me enough for that level of hard hitting investigative journalism.

justjp: Nobody wants thumb toes. And they're not mine.

f.B: Curious indeed.

lbluca77: I'll bet you got your hair feathered, too.

hmmmm, very "Love Story" like, marry and then die.

My monkey feet are famous! actually I very rarely wear flip flops since my toes kinda... mmmm... overflow to the ground and I hate how it looks. I did spend most of my childhood barefooted as I just refused to wear any sort of shoes (to the dismay of my mom), so maybe that did it

Shannon said...

Really, the embarassing part of the photos is a little to the left of the big toe...a certain DC blogger serves Miller Lite and Cheesy Poofs at her gatherings.

Mike said...

I wonder what the prenups will be like.

Little Ms Blogger said...

Okay, if your toes were painted Mango, that guy on the Bachlorette, Tanner would be stalking you now.

In the meantime, I've tagged you. I admit, I typically try not to tag people, but this seemed fun because I could lie. I tagged you because I like your writing and think you'd have some very fun answers. http://littlemsblogger.blogspot.com/2009/06/before-brain-fog-set-in.html


lacochran said...

Titania: Way to drop a reference! I forgot he was in that.

Shannon: The June issue of Urban Blogger says that exactly what all the chic people are serving.

Mike: Ahhh, now you've hit on a whole different motive. Clever fellow.

Little Ms Blogger: Thanks, Hon!

Titania said...

Ah! Anon, the nail polish is Borghese, and the color is Sonata Berry

yeah... the guy will be living in real life the movie that made him famous

Herb of DC said...

I have a "Holiday" sweater that matches that shower curtain.

Titania: That sucks. Thanks for sharing, all the same. I hadn't heard.
