Confuse Me??

So, I’m not sure if I’ve written about this in the past or not, but something’s telling me yes.  I admit to having an EXTREME aversion to Hilary Duff…very similar to my aversion for cantaloupe. (Read: extreme reactions such as rolling of the eyes, turning of the channel, and general complaining. It entertains my family in a perplexing way.)

It’s true. She makes me crazy. And I’ll be the first to admit that I have zero to the zero power reasons why. There’s just something about her that is like being forced to sit and listen to nails being dragged down a chalkboard. Can’t do it. Won’t do it. DISLIKE button.

Needless to say that this lil’ doozie of a headline really tripped me up today. 

Ex-squeeze me??  This is right up there with Lauren Conrad (layman terms: chick from The Hills) writing her first “novel.” And now second, from what I see on amazon.com. Where are the READERS in this country??

I’m like, totally disappointed. (Insert hair flip here.)

On another totally unrelated note, Ryan Seacrest has a stalker.

I know, did you have to re-read that line, too?

Some guy has been “showing up where he works and to events he has been hosting.” The guy had a restraining order from Ryan already because he tried to beat up his bodyguards a while back and now has plead no contest to stalking.

Again, did you have to re-read that?

I just want to know, at what point in your stalking career do you decide the jig is up?  “They have a point here…it’s a little suspicious that I keep showing up like this. Doesn’t look to good on my part. Oh, ok fine! I’m your stalker. Nice to meet you. Guess I’m going to have to go back to my job at Old Navy now.”

Seems like a lot of work for nothing. I’m just sayin’.

Finally…I saw “Shutter Island” this weekend. I’ll let you in on a lil’ secret: I HATE scary movies. Especially the kind where I don’t sleep at night because each noise I hear I just KNOW is that serial killer coming to get lil’ ol’ me.

This was not one of those movies. I totally thought it was and I spent the first half of the movie with my jacket acting as a blanket that was “conveniently” close to my eyes to provide the Scary Movie Cover, as I like to call that move.

I loved it. It was smart, it was suspenseful, it made you think (in a good way) and it was really entertaining. If you have a few hours to duck out and go see a great movie, I highly recommend it. In fact, I’m going to make up my own rating scale right now and give it 4.5 melons.

Eat your heart out, Leonard Maltin.
