If the Blouse Fits...

Like Ruth I, too, am tired, no, disgusted with all the discussion about Tiger Woods' very public apology yesterday.  Yes, I was disappointed (he looks like such a nice young man), but frankly what he's done is between him and his conscience.  I'm thankful it's none of my business.

What is also none of my business is the public press conference of one of his liaisons (a hooker  "porn star') with her attorney no less, demanding a public, face-to-face apology from Tiger.  She cried, telling the world how 'victimized' she was while her attorney held her hand and the buttons of her blouse STRAINED against the weight of her, shall we say,  huge 'chest'.  What??  She didn't know the blouse was too tight????  And she didn't realize she had been screwing around with another woman's husband?    PULLLEASE!  Sometimes the communal televisions at the gym are a real curse...Luckily the sets were too high off the floor for me to kick in the screens.

We're finally starting to melt a bit.  We're betting on when we'll be without snow -- I'm thinking the second week in April.  We're supposed to get 'wintry mix' on Monday.  This is polite for 'ice'.

Well said about Mr. Woods. I didn't see any of press conferences. I would have wanted to kick the TV screen, too, when the "porn star" was crying. So what? Who cares?

Great post!

I agree w/your opinion re: T. Woods. I really don't care what he does, and how he worms his way out of it, if his wife lets him. That's all between him and her.

I agree - wintry mix = icy rain, ugh!

Love your new Banner!! :)

I am so sick of hearing about Tiger Woods in the news! I'm with you - who cares?!

I hope you stay safe and warm during the next batch of wintry mix.

love,

I'm tired of Tiger Woods. He was lead on the evening news, for heavens sake! And we are in the UK!

He needs to sort his life out, away from cameras, mikes and get on with it. I don't wanmt to know!

And we have another 6 mins of snow this morning. :(

I'm so glad I didn't see the porn star's press conference!

I am so over Tiger Woods and all the woman he was with. I feel for his wife and kids. As for the porn star. Please. I am glad I missed her press mess.

Why does the press treat stories like this as if they were important news? Nobody cares and everyone is tired of hearing about it. They need to focus on actual news for a change.

Our snow is gone. Hope yours melts quickly.
