Cross my fingers

Oh Goodness! I hope my horoscope is accurate today!

Cancer
For Friday, January 12 - If you've reached your boiling point with a particularly annoying person, something will happen today to turn down the heat. This boor isn't going anywhere anytime soon, but things will be changing just enough to make him or her bearable. Maybe you'll learn certain facts that cast this person's behavior in a more bearable -- even an amusing -- light. Maybe you'll learn that this person will soon be playing a less prominent role in your life. Whatever it is, you can look to less annoyance in your near future.

It's listed under fiction. Geez.

I read the Da Vinci code. I was as smitten as everyone else was (save for the jaded Barnes and Noble employees who scoffed at the lemmings racing to purchase Dan Brown’s book). I though the book was clever and it made me really analyze da Vinci’s works. It educated me on some aspects of history I was not very erudite about, like the issues da Vinci had with the papacy and the Knights Templar.

I did not, however, decide that this book was a work of non-fiction. The folks who fell hook, line and sinker for it, remind me of the people who decided that L. Ron Hubbard’s science fiction novel was fact and helped him make a religion out of it.

My issues with the reactions to the story are as follows:

Just because da Vinci believed that Mary and Jesus were together does not mean they were. After all, he was born 1400 years after Jesus died. Maybe his works were created to snub the Catholic Church and had no basis in reality.

Even if Sophie Neveu was the descendant of Mary Magdalene, it does not mean she is the progeny of Christ.

If they did find the body of Mary Magdalene, why didn’t they test the DNA?

It’s just a book, a story spun from the creative expanses of one man’s head.

Baby go hide

There they are again; Brad, Angelina, Maddox, Zahara and ... wait.. Where is Shiloh? How come we never see Shiloh? Why do Brang always show off the stolen ones, but not the flesh and blood? Is she too good to be seen by mere mortals? Is she too hideous? I don't get why Madzah get to prance all over town whilst Shiloh is home being raised by the nanny, or maybe the dog? (Or maybe the dog "Nanny" like in Peter Pan?)

Why does this bother me? Does it affect me in any way whatsoever? At least they did not start taking only their crotch fruit out once she was born and leave the other two at home because suddenly they were not as cute anymore. (You know, kind of like when I first bought a Kate Spade bag and thought it was the greatest thing ever. I was spotted all over town with that bright red box, making sure everyone saw the wee black label. Then I got a Prada and the Kate Spade was not good enough for me anymore. Though Ms. Spade, if you want to try to win back my affections, I am open to that.)
