Oops! EW! She Did It Again!!!

I cannot believe that Britney Spears would actually do it again. Look with your own eyes, this woman is about to enter ANOTHER public restroom in her BARE FEET! Click the picture to see a larger version. I am just stunned.

Clearly, it is a different bathroom on a different day (although, this restroom appears to also be a unisex restroom). Can someone PLEASE explain to me how a woman worth millions of dollars, who has the ability to obtain the most expensive and beautiful shoes in the world and who is known the world over can possibly find nothing wrong with walking in her bare feet into a public restroom. I am just so grossed out by the whole thing.

What I don't understand is why she doesn't just get a cheap pair of flip-flops from either Diesel, Abercrombie & Fitch, Target or even Wal-Mart?! It would be so easy for her to just slip on some flip-flops or even socks. Hahahah! Socks would be better than bare feet!!!

It's too bad she's not touring -- I would bring her a $4.99 pair of flip-flops to wear when she goes out.

This first picture is Britney waiting to occupy the public restroom and the other 3 are from later on the same day (different top) as she is walking in a Blockbuster parking lot. Click the picture to see a larger version. She looks like a complete mess. Her skirt is all over the place. It used to be sexy when she showed her thong. This is just too much. I may have to start praying for her.

UPDATE: Oh lord, get a load of these dogs:



The poor things look like they need to be burned. Would you touch these things?! I bet they smell lovely.

My Initials Aren't T.V. For Nothing

Oprah Winfrey has truly outdone herself. I am not one of those mindless suburban wife drones who worships at the altar of Oprah every day at 4pm (as hard as it is to believe). But today, I flipped over to The Oprah Winfrey show during a Judge Judy commercial break (Oh, whatever, don't judge me -- I'm at the very end of my summer vacation and I'm going to veg out as much as I can -- you would do the same thing if you had the opportunity). Much to my shock and amazement, Oprah's show dealt with the issue of pre-pubescent children who were dealing with transgender issues. I could not believe what I was witnessing. There were 2 little (now) boys who were born girls (with their extremely supportive and loving parents) and another little boy who insists that he is a girl (and he's 5 years old). His parents were on the show looking for help as they didn't know what to do with their son. The father was not at all supportive of his son but his mother was. Then Oprah brought out a transgender psychologist and an adult transgendered woman who lived much of her life as a man (complete with wife and 2 sets of twin children).

Both the transgendered woman and the psychologist warned of the high suicide rate of kids who deal with these issues. I just couldn't believe how accepting her audience was over this controversial topic. I can only imagine what the housewives in Kansas and Iowa were thinking. After the adult transgendered woman told her story of hardship growing up as a woman trapped in a man's body the unaccepting father decided that he was going to be more accepting of his son (promising to allow his son have the dolls that he yearns to play with). It was very touching. Erik got home from work early and watched much of this show with me. We were just dumbfounded at what we were watching. The times have truly changed. I say, if Oprah Winfrey can open some very dangerous closed minds by showcasing these types of stories then I say more power to her. There is no other person who can highlight these issues and make them palatable for mass consumption. Of course I know that she isn't going to make homophobic people change their minds on a broad scale, but I'm sure she can change some minds. And that is better than nothing.

But, Oprah's got commercial breaks too so I was able to switch over to VH-1 and watch today's episode of Totally Obsessed (the afternoon's TV entertainment wasn't all serious and important). Oh.My.God, I'm not kidding, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle chick is completely OUT of her EFFING mind!



In her interview, she just sounded crazy. A description will not do her insanity justice. You have to see it for yourself. It wasn't until she started singing the song "Follow Your Heart" from some Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles musical that I about fell off the couch in hysterics (you must witness this for yourself). She is the subject of a Detroit Free Press article and another separate Freep.com article in case you miss the show and want to read about her. I am *so* proud that she is from Detroit. What is it in the water around here that can spawn a Madonna, an Eminem and a woman who is totally obsessed with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Probably the same stuff that would make a 30-year-old guy write about all of them ... Obsessively! Anyways, the show airs TONIGHT at 11pm on VH-1. Do yourself a favor and watch it.

BTW, Judge Judy was hilarious as always. We love her!

Kickin' Ass, Again

Well, the Quop may never die but it does go on hiatus. Erik and I are playing kickball in the fall league but not on The Quop Brigade. There weren't enough Quoppers to make up a full team so Erik and I (along with Kirsten, Adam and Tracey) joined up with Stephanie for the Monday night league. This team won their league championship just this past season so Erik and I are looking to ride their coattails to victory. I want a trophy damnit! The fall league only has 8 games (4 double headers, every Monday in September) where the team with the best record will win the championship (there will not be play-off games). I really loved playing kickball this summer so I'm looking forward to getting back on the field for more games. I'm not sure what the team name, nor what the team color is but I'll be sure to pass along that information as soon as I get it. We have a few openings for SuperFans to come cheer us on. I'm pretty sure that VLB will do her best to come support us but I'm putting out the call to anyone who wants to come watch us play to please do. I would love it if semi-retired-Quoppers ::cough:: Michael T. ::cough:: could trek out to see us at least once.

Hahahaha! Would you like to own this:



It used to belong to Britney Spears and you can bid on it HERE. You better hurry though, the price is up to $460.96.

I'll have to go into work for a bit so let's get to the goss:

And I guess that's it for now. Work beckons, which really sucks, but I'll be back later with wondrous tales and fantastical stories to share. Ta ta!
