This and That

Just got back from seeing Up in the Air with George Clooney. Suddenly, I remember why it is that I (as well as all the rest of womankind) fancy the pants off of this guy!  I was beginning to forget actually. Kind of like the way I did with Brad Pitt. It wasn't until I saw him in Ocean's Eleven that I finally got why he's such a heart throb. I guess i'm a personality-over-looks kind of girl, but in their cases,  role-over-looks. Only God knows what these people are actually like in real life! I don't know, axe-murderers, psychotic sociopaths..?

Anyway, it was a cool film, I thought.  Another good film I saw recently was It's Complicated.  Meryl Streep is a goddess and Alec Baldwin's comic rock star status has been on the up since 30 Rock.  His brother, Stephen, currently appearing on Celebrity Big Brother over here?  Now that's a whole 'nother story for a whole 'nother day.

My New year's blogging resolution is to not overthink my blog posts. So, there you go...

Funny story in the press today. Apparently, one in four TEENAGERS in the UK think that bacon comes from sheep, and oats grow on trees!

Just over a quarter of children questioned thought bacon came from sheep, 29% thought oats grow on trees, and just under a fifth of both children and adults under the age of 30 were convinced eggs were a core ingredient in bread.
The National Farmers Union is not amused.
"The results show how important it is to teach the adults of tomorrow about the food they eat,"
said NFU president Peter Kendall.

Never mind the National Farmers Union!  I'm sure the pigs weren't very amused either!!!  Pesky sheep trying to take credit for their delicious bacon?!  How dare they...
