Dreamy sigh

Ok, folks, I feel like we have a ton to talk about, including, but not limited to the following:

  • Katie Holmes, Tom Cruise and all things Scientology;
  • The health care law decision and the Supreme Court;
  • My new closet (genius!); and
  • About a million other things.

All of that is going to have to wait, though, because I have breaking news. Because I sent Aaron to one of those wacky Iowa casinos for the night (a fathers’ day present), I treated myself to a People magazine. Being a single parent is hard and I figured I deserved a treat. I really bought it because the issue promises to tell me what really happened in the Tom & Katie story, but before I got to that, I came across a mini-interview with Mr. Darcy himself, Colin Firth. Firth was asked about his favorite authors and he rattled off a short list I quickly skimmed (Faulkner, Cheever, blah blah). But then I see the glorious Jane Austen’s name in bold. What’s this? I thought. Mr. Darcy tells People magazine,

I’d never read Jane Austen before I [played Mr. Darcy] in Pride and Prejudice; she was a revelation. I went through every book and wished there were more.

Ah, amen. So. Do. I.

    Yet another reason to admire Colin Firth.

    FWIW, the People magazine story about Tom & Katie was pretty worthless. It seemed to suggest her floundering career is what led her to move out, which of course makes about no sense. Although the article acknowledged she pretty much had to deceive Cruise and his people for quite some time — with the use of disposable cell phones and the like — the article was way too careful (and, in doing so, dishonest I think) to avoid blaming Scientolocrazy. I suspect they don’t want to take on Scientology because to do so can be a headache. Did anyone see Brian Williams’s show last week? They did a short piece on Scientology and said they received tons of calls and letters or whatnot from the Crazies asking them not to run the piece. For God’s sake.

    Katie and Suri are my new neighbors, so I’ll try to find out. (Ok, we’re a few blocks apart, but I feel so close to them). The paparazzi are crazy — what a miserable existence.

    Oh, I also bought People as a treat for a plane ride (who was I kidding that I would read with my gigantic babe), and I also thought it was so soft and clearly downplaying it so would still have access to Scientology celebs or whatever.

    Yes! Thank you for backing me up on that.

    OMG. You. Are. Neighbors. With. Suri. And. Katie. That’s awesome! Please report back frequently!
