Pondering Paris

As I sat at home yesterday, confined much of the time to my 8 x 12 living room (okay, maybe not technically "confined," I just really didn't want to leave the house, and I don't actually know the dimensions of my living room, I just know that it's small), unable to even go to the bathroom without someone watching (Yes, Rover, I love you, too. Now let Mommy poop in private, 'kay?), I had time to reflect. And I came to a startling conclusion.

I've been too hard on Paris Hilton.

No, really. Think about it. She truly has been subjected to a punishment far, far greater than the usual prisoner. She has not just been forced into solitary confinement for 23 hours a day--she has been forced to endure the company of Paris Hilton, and ONLY Paris Hilton, for 23 hours a day! My god, talk about your cruel and unusual punishment! Who among us could endure the same and not soon crack?

I sort of hated her and then felt bad for her and then hated her and then just got annoyed with myself for caring about her at all.

You know, you just might be right. Am I sympathetic? Nope. I don't believe for one second that she ever felt any remorse for any of her misdeeds. She SHOULD have to live with herself for a while. Maybe then she'll figure out that a lot of the people who hate her have good reason, not just that they're jealous.

PS, I've got some reading to do. I clicked over here to comment and discovered that Bloglines has missed a couple of your posts. Oops.

noelle, yeah, it kind of pisses me off that I let myself get all righteously indignant about the likes of Paris Hilton. We should be above caring, right? Maybe next arrest. ;)

spark, oh, I'm not TRULY very sympathetic. Like you said--it's all about the lack of remorse. She never once took responsibility--it was all "my people" were supposed to take of this and "my publicist" failed to do that. Does she really think that's going to generate sympathy among those of us who have no "people" to blame?

I just want ONE day without her name in the headlines. ONE. Is that asking too much??? ;-)

So much news coverage! It's annoying and yet I can't turn away.
