I’m leaving on a jet plane…

I read on IMDB.com that Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt are adopting a baby. Don’t feel like posting the link because, well, I only have a few minutes here. Bleh. Anyway, so the article says they plan on “raising the child in Europe because it is a great place to raise a child” blah blah.

Now, first off, I think Europe is nice. I’ve only been to London and it was for a very short period of time, but I enjoyed it. I’d like to go back to Europe….there are many countries there I’d like to visit.

BUT– it just chaps my hide that it seems like all these American celebrities are like “I want to raise my baby in Europe!” As if America isn’t good enough for your children.

Hmph, yeah just forget the country whose residents made you what you are. We go to the movies, we watch the E! Channel and hell, we read People Magazine when you’re on the cover so we’ll all know about your alcoholicism.

We deserve some respect, too.

This also reminds me of the people who swore they were going to move to Europe if Bush won. He did and they’re still here. Why? Now I don’t care what your political ideology is…but if you’re going to go out there and make a big statement like that well then, damnit, you better pack your bags and move.

I’ve also seen people on media message boards make this grand statement. As if you can just pick up your bags and move to France come November.

I’m not really sure where this is going but I’ll leave you with this statement: Stop saying you’re going to Europe, damnit and just go already. And, BTW, once you get there, could you perhaps let me and the hubs stay with you?

I hear Paris is just beautiful in the fall.


  1. Yeah, I’ll move to Europe when they learn to master making ice.

    Until, Illinois is good enough for me (and my nonexistent child.)

  2. Don’t you know, it’s the chic thing to do nowadays. Raise your child in England. The Countryside, preferably (see Madonna and Guy Ritchie)–but don’t tresspass on the property, even if you’re just going on a walkabout or simply hiking through.

    The other thing is: is it me or don’t these damn women celebrities want to have their own kids because it “ruins their bodies?” If so, take a lesson from Susan Williams–bronze medal winner in the Triathlon at the AThens Olympics, who missed out on Sydney due to her pregnancy (her daughter is appropriately named Sydney). Having a child does not RUIN your body (also see Marion Jones).

    I’m so tired of “celebrities” in general. It’s our fault though. If we stopped going to the movies and watching those atrocious shows (Extra, Entertainment Tonight–are you listening Mother?) these bastards would not exist.

    This brings me to the first point I want to make about what this book is not. I am not advocating a morality based on evolution. I am saying how things have evolved. I am not saying how we humans mora
