Does it seem odd to you that the CBS morning news should be reporting on Britney Spears court
nonappearance in her child custody case? Are there not a couple of areas in the world in which we are in military combat that might require more immediate attention? Is there not a murderer on the run somewhere in the world who murdered an eight month pregnant woman, whom he allegedly raped, then burned and buried right in his own back yard in North Carolina? Are there not weather systems going haywire? Isn’t there a dog stuck in a well pipe on 7th street in some backwoods town in East Bumphuc Egypt?
And while I’m on the subject, does it constitute a low speed chase if only the psycho paparazzi are involved? Isn’t it a prerequisite that the legal authorities be involved for it to be classified as a “chase” of any kind and to be shown on the national news, for God’s sake?
And, again, while I’m on the subject, does anyone really have an objection to Britney not being there to fight for custody of her children at the moment? Before you all get up on your high horses and start to judge her as a horrible example of a mother for not being in there fighting for her kids with all her might, let me set you straight. Britney did the most motherly thing I’ve seen her do in a long time this morning. She let her kids go to the best place they can be right now. Does anyone really think they need to be in Brit’s custody right now?
Permanent Custody is a relative term in the court system. Until a child is eighteen years old, or until a parent’s parental rights are terminated, nothing and I mean NOTHING is written in stone. We’ve seen this over and over in this case already. This could very well be Britney’s first step towards healing in a very long time. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
If I were her and I pulled up in front of that courthouse, with no chance of success inside and that gauntlet of press to run outside, I would probably have done the same thing. Please note the “If I were her” at the beginning of the sentence. Because every expression on my face on the way out the door would have been worth thousands to some undeserving asshole whose only ticket in is a camera in his hand and the dexterity to plunge the freakin button on it. Which means a blind monkey in the right position could make that money shot over and over again. So much for the “talent” portion of our event.
And that’s all for my Britney rant today.
The four hundred eighty five things you DID do today don’t count. It’s the ONE thing you didn’t do that matters. Don’t forget that.
Crackers trump the electric bill every time.
You can spend all of your time working on a problem and someone who has never been involved will STILL think they can see it better than you.
Criticism comes easy from the least expected people.
Support comes from the most UNexpected people.
People who were deliberately absent when all the work was being done will make sure to point out all of the shortcomings of any project. The harder the project, the more vocal the pointer will be.
Sometimes I’m a bitch.
