Do I offend?

Wow! I managed to offend someone with my blog? How interesting, the one time I don’t talk about thrifting crafting or sewing someone gets offended. I didn’t think that many people were even reading it. This is still my Blog right? Yet they were so appalled at my low opinion of Tom Cruise they didn’t leave there name. By the way I am pretty sure that I started out by saying that it wasn’t meant to offend anyone just my personal option on him. Well I guess I need not have bothered with that.

For the most part I could careless what you think of my option of Tom Cruise there Anonymous, but there is one thing that you said that I would like to address. My comment on him, not bothering to marry her. I could careless about them having a kid & not being married. I to know many people that have a relationship like that. They provide a safe loving home to their kids & that is what matters. My point was that he is spouting off about other people being immoral & making “wrong” choices, here he is doing what would be considered in the majority of the world’s minds as immoral by having a child out of wed lock.

I could careless if it works for them more power to ‘em. As far as I am concern as long as they provide a safe loving home for the child I don’t care who is raising them, same sex couples, unmarried couples, a pack of wild platypuses, whatever. As long as the child isn’t going to be the next Charles Manson I say good for them.

Really my point was that they actors, musicians, politicians, etc….. all think that they are so high & mighty, telling the rest of us how to think, behave, etc when they don’t even live in the real world dealing with real everyday issues like the rest of us. How could they possibly be more educated or know how I should feel on a subject whatever it maybe when they aren’t even living on the same planet as me? Tom Cruise just made a convenient target this week. Give me a week I am sure that some other Celebrity with make an ass of themselves & I can have a new target. Anyone know what Paris is up to?

Or maybe I will just stick to sewing, thrifting & crafts……..

You said a pack of wild platypuses

You know, there is just something about this turn of phrase which cracks me up. Maybe because it describes the state of my house? A pack of wild platypuses (platypi???) living here would explain the shambles.....

I'm such a geek - I just went and looked it up. Both "platypuses" and "platypi" are acceptable...

Just want to chime in that I agree with most of what you said regarding Tom. It's not like he is poor and out of a job. He's a zillioniare with a huge following. Although there may be less now. Tom always reminded me of my arrogant brother so I have always had trouble watching him. The whole Tom & Katie thing is weird and kind of sad. I'm so sorry someone had the guts to write that to you but not the respect to leave their name. We support you and your right to vent away.

Not only am I not offended, I'd have to say I'm in total agreement. I am sick of movie stars that think that we should all care about what their opinion is on politics, or just about anything else. Or is the one at fault the media which gives them a forum?? Either way, it's obnoxious.

Wow, you sure pissed off someone in his fan club!
I personally love how it seems like all the actors are going nuts lately! Dinosaurs will die.

Blogs are supposed to be where you can write whatever you want. Don't let one anonymous comment change that!
