I’m So Over It

By Glinda


Listen, I don’t care anymore. You can scream it in three-inch high headlines. You can charge me only $2.99. I don’t care.

There might have been a time when I was sort of interested in which celebrity was pregnant, or could be. It was a way to pass the time, looking at pictures of them to see if that was just a bit of bloat, or a baby bump.

But now?

I’ve got bigger concerns to worry about. You know, maybe even some little things like the tanking economy and job losses everywhere and the fact that in my state, we aren’t even going to get our state tax refunds!

It seems like over the past three years every star that you can think of, from A to D-listers, has been able to conceive and deliver a baby. You know what, big freaking deal! I’ve done it too! Where is my exclusive spread in People?

Then I have the sneaking feeling that many celebrities use the pregnancy rumors to keep the publicity mill running. Speculation about a pregnancy is a surefire way to get yourself on the cover of something.

I don’t even know these people, so why exactly should I care? It’s not like I’m going to be invited to the baby shower or anything. Or you know, like even see the child in person during my entire lifetime.

So while some may find the obsessing over celebrity tummies a welcome distraction from their woes, I’m done. Finished. Finito.

I hereby declare that I will no longer worry so much about potential celebrity pregnancies and perhaps spend a bit more time reading about the proposed stimulus package.

What about you?

P.S. Jessica Simpson is NOT fat! She is just displaying the tragic effects that high-waisted jeans work on a girl who doesn’t have the hips of a 14 year old boy. And maybe some bad lighting. And maybe some unflattering makeup. And an expensive designer Fendi, but further waist-shortenifying, belt.

P.P.S. Jennifer Aniston, I’ve never been into her for me to be over her.

    You mean, I’m the ONLY PERSON spending all day poring thru paparazzi snaps lamenting the pros and cons of TomKat offering up another Suri to the masses??

    Oh to be fat like Jessica Simpson. Sigh.

    I feel for you, Glinda. I really do. But you write on a Baby Blog, and a fashionable one at that. It’s supposed to be full of those silly, charmingly useless, adorable baby things that you are finding so meaningless just now.

    I’ve noticed it’s becoming a little more soap-boxy and political around here. Very relevant and understandable, given the current state of the country, but to tell you the truth I read this blog to escape those things and focus on fun little babyhood (yes, even celebrity babyhood) tidbits. If I want politics and world affairs I’ll watch the news.

    Don’t worry, though. As I said, I understand completely. I’ll just get my fun fix elsewhere.

    @Bellamama- I respect your decision, Bellamama.

    I think I speak for both raincoaster and myself when I say that we try to keep a nice mix of things around here. I hardly think that posts on newsboy caps, things with hearts for Valentine’s Day, kids after dentist appointments, and eyelash curlers are hard-hitting political pieces. We did have a few back during the presidential elections and such because hey, I will only get to write about things like that once every four years.

    I’ve always had posts that are, er, opinionated, that’s just my style and who I am as a writer. You would hate my personal blog, apparently.

    This isn’t a baby blog, this is a parenting blog, and parenting is more than just oohing and aaahing over cute things, but I don’t have to tell you that. Oh, and for the record, I don’t find baby things meaningless, I find celebrity pregnancies to be no more special than anyone else’s, and the are-they-or-aren’t-they publicity ploys meaningless.

    I’m sorry you feel the way you do, but I’m sure you will be successful in finding something suitably escapist and fluffy.

    I think we’re just reflecting the changing culture. Everybody is getting Perez Hilton fatigue lately.
