"Eddie Murphy's Ex Wife Denies A Jimmy Choo Shoe Wrecked Their Marriage."

Just another headline that amused me.

Did she buy them from Norman Hsu?

"Jimmy Choo Shoe" belongs in the Alley Oop song.

Jimmy Choo shoes may be worth a wrecked marriage. Certainly worth a wrecked marriage with Eddie "That Ho Ain't Having My Baby...Oh Wait..." Murphy.

An unofficial marriage that lasted 16 days. That's sort of amusing in and of itself.

Well, maybe the shoes,or watches, were to blame. Myself, I'd put my money on (allegedly) battling in-laws and the (alleged) "too 'ghetto'" exchange.

And--damn it, Ann!--now I've got this worming its way through my brain. Thanks a bunch.

By the way, despite knowing the correct word for 20-odd years, I STILL hear "potty" in place of "party," which just, and still, brings up bizarre imagery I could do without.

Hmm. Gobs of posts yesterday, and--despite it being 7:41 a.m. Easter as I write--early riser Althouse hasn't yet made an appearance today.

I wonder where she's traveling to now?

Two reasons for hearing potty. The Eddie Murphy song is one. The other reason is a deeper virus embedded and wrapped around your neurons eight years previously. Most likely you watched the Mood Ring commercial much more than you ever listened to "Party All the Time," and it features the great line "It's a potty ring"! This commercial was in heavy rotation with Mr Microphone -- "Hey good-looking, we'll be back to pick you up later." Which probably made her mood ring turn black because she's walking down the sidewalk and "later" is a nebulous unit of time. Should she rest her feet in anticipation of a lift? Or, by the time these assholes return, could she already be home and finishing off the second bowl before the end of Dog and Butterfly?

Bill: Was it absolutely necessary to remind me that I wore a mood ring, among other scary '70s "fashion" items, back in the day?

I swear, sometimes I think you stalk me, just looking for an opportunity to yank my chain.

(Ducking.)

I STILL like "Dog and Butterfly," though. In fact, I think I'll dial that up right now, while my son's finishing his breakfast.

(Nyaah. Nyaah. Catch me if you can!)

Thanks for the vinyl-to-digital info, btw, from me and my FIL.

I'm right with you there. Black people have a higher fatality rate from colorectal cancer, so I'm sure Murphy was just trying to encourage sublimininably a higher fiber diet.

Much like South Africa, East Germany, and Chili, in trying to move forward from past injustices, we need to consider a general amnesty for any and all actions taken during the 70s.

bill said...

Or Chile, even. Depending on how it's prepared, chili can be very unforgiving. Much like aging hippies.

oh what tough lives some of those celebrities do lead...i would not at all be surprised if Jimmy Choo was in fact the cause to the separation.
