The world as I know it is ending

OK, I got up today and was in a generally good mood due to (a) it's Friday and (b) the house thing is pretty much a done deal. (Yes, I still say pretty much even after we have final approval because I am that much of a worry wart. A meteor could hit that house, ya know) Anyways, I get in the shower and am mentally going over my day. I get out and am drying off with the bathroom door open so I don't pass out from the heat in the bathroom from the shower. I have the Today show blaring from the bedroom and I hear these words from the oh-so-perky mouth of Katie Couric "We knew it was coming - Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are engaged." So I ran my naked ass in there to see Tom Cruise's incredibly toothy smile plastered across my tv. I know there are people out there that never watch tv or read US magazine and look down on us clearly uncultured dolts who do. I know this, ok? So save your comments. I am here to talk to those folks that, like me, can read US magazine every blessed week with glee and watch "Best Week Ever" on VH1 and laugh our asses off, ok?
That being said, what is she thinking? Katie Holmes is a talented, seemingly well adjusted individual. I have loved her in the Creek (and if anyone dares blast me for loving the Creek, meet me in the quad after school because I am kicking your ass) and the movies she has done from "Abandon" to "Pieces of April" to "Go." She has nice normal roots in Midwestern America. She is not a Hilton. She is not a Lohan (I could write volumes on how she grates on my last nerve.) She is not a Spears-Federline. And yet, and YET, she is roped into whatever allure that man holds. I have never really gotten what is so damn fabulous about him. I love most of the flicks he does, so I get that he does have some sort of charisma that attracts the movie going public. He is just a giant ego filled turd though. I am tired of listening to him pontificate about the glory that is Scientology. If he uses the word "extraordinary" to describe Katie one more time, I will wretch in my hand. Everything he does seems very contrived, very for the camera, very "let's check the pulse of America." How does she not see that?
Why am I taking this all so personally? I have wondered this myself. Why am I so very put off on this particular relationship when things like the Paris/Paris nightmare, the Paris/Nicole tiff, etc don't seem to register on my radar screen too much? I have no answer for that. I just know that if these two stay together past the release dates of their summer movies, I will be shocked to say the very least.
I am climbing down off my soap box now.

He has so abviously drugged her.

But I can NOT wait until this whole "relationship" falls apart.

I can't remember whose site I saw this on... please thank them if any of you do... http://www.freekatie.net/

I think he has brainwashed her.

I am so damn glad that I'm not the only one that sees this as FRICKIN' WEIRD. Every time he opens his mouth about scientology, I look at him more as 'that weird guy you avoid talking to' than 'handsome star, please love me'.

Yeesh. The whole deal gives me the willies...and not the good kind, if ya know what I mean.

My thoughts exactly. I am just fascinated by the whole fucking situation. I mean he is short, he is a jerk, he has like 3 ex wives doesn't he?
BUT, he is rich..she is rich too but not as rich as him.
But whatever..that is what makes the world go round.

The entire thing is just so amusing because most people realize its just this giant publicity stunt and are laughing their asses off that TOMKAT continue to go along with this farce.

Did you check out the honking ring he gave her? Nice prop.

I agree that Tom is just creepy and hes not at all attractive. The scientology cult thing skeeves me out. ANd his little rant on Brooke Shields was just ignorant.

first - LOL - actually, let me clarify...laughing my ass off, rolling on the floor! mind you, I don't know what you look like (can't recall a photo) - but I have this image of you, the recognition on your face as you hear 'the news' and seeing you run, naked to the TV - hilarious!

2nd (don't punch me out...)

breathe - relax - breathe

Well you said exactly what I think too..I was getting ready for work and saw the bit about their engagement on the Eiffel Tower after midnight and probably yelled "GIVE ME A BREAK"...loudly--with only my dogs to hear. I thought it was disgusting that there was a press conference early that morning as if they couldn't go to sleep without telling the WORLD that they got engaged..just seemed sooo nauseatingly planned out.
