The launch page of Live Journal features a pan with freshly baked chocolate chip cookies on it. This picture must go. It has been there a few weeks and I get weak in the knees every time I see that page. I start drooling...just call me Pavlov's Dog but dang it I want one of those cookies, actually I want all of those cookies but well we don't always get what we want. Sigh!

Yesterday Princess Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to a baby boy. His name hasn't been announced yet but I personally find it quite exciting. I like all of the pomp and circumstance of the Royals. I think it is great fun. (Oh yes, I know that Kate isn't officially a Princess but she is married to the Prince of Wales and by golly she SHOULD be a princess I don't care what protocol may or may not say! Hah!)

I found out that my mother cannot abide seeing Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall together. It seems she hasn't gotten over the loss of Princess Diana. I was surprised to find that out. I guess we don't really discuss the Royals although that would be easier to talk about rather than our concentrated efforts not to discuss American politics. Although, I don't have a problem with the Duchess of Cornwall or Prince Charles. I think that the marriage of Charles and Diana was a huge mistake. She was too young for the sudden responsibilities and he didn't know how to cope with her insecurities. I think it was a tragedy for all parties. I will say that Prince William seems to take things in stride and boldly honors his mother's memory. I don't know about Prince Harry so much but he hasn't really settled down. Harry is still very busy sowing wild oats much like his uncle Prince Andrew. I think the chances of Prince Andrew really growing up are rather limited at this time but who knows. Maybe he will. See I told you I am a royal watcher. It is one of my truly guilty pleasures and doesn't cost me a cent.

Anyway, finding out that my mother is still not over the Princess Diana situation and despises Charles and Camilla astounds me as much as those who haven't gotten over the divorce of Jennifer Anniston and Brad Pitt. First, I don't know why Brad Pitt ever married her in the first place. (Yes, I do have opinions on many of these meaningless things.) I don't think Jennifer Anniston is all that talented and really there are much cuter actresses in Hollywood. I don't get why anyone would get all worked up about her in the first place. I can see why someone would prefer Angelina Jolie over Jennifer Anniston any day of the week. Although I have to say I never understood the marriage of Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton. That was just plain weird.

I guess the only celebrity breakup/hook up that really has gotten my attention over the years was the whole John Lennon, Yoko Ono thing. I never really did get that but it isn't any of my business either. I just find it odd. I guess what bothered me about the whole thing was that John pretty much let go of his relationship with Julian, his oldest son. It is one thing to want a different partner but don't neglect your kids. That is just wrong IMHO.

Well, lots of preachy little opinions on things that don't matter two hoots. It is the cookies I tell you. If I had those fresh baked chocolate chip cookies I'd be fine. Just fine! LOL!!!

BTW, speaking of pictures of recipes have you ever noticed that some of the cooking blogs and even cooking shows take photos of food that doesn't even look that appetizing. What is that all about? I mean I can make food that tastes wonderful but maybe isn't much to look at. I am surely not going to take a photo of it and put it on the internet. As if!

Well, I guess this is all I have to babble about today. You are getting off easy unless you are now craving some of those chocolate chip cookies too.

Ciao!

LOL! I avoid the launch page if at all possible. I like going straight to my "friends' page," though now I set it to "users only" as I can't be bothered to read much else except books and news articles anymore. I don't know whether that's a terrible thing to admit or not.

I dislike Brad Pitt and Prince Charles and his current wife Camilla because they cheated on their respective spouses. That's all it takes for me. If Pitt and Charles and Camilla had wanted divorces they could have done so without going as far as they did. Yes, I'm biased, but as you know, I have my reasons.

I do agree with you about John Lennon abandoning his son, Julian. There's no excuse for that.

Some cooking blogs are just terrible. If I can find Lauren's (son's ex-girlfriend) food blog I'll send you the link. The girl really does know how to cook and shoot photos!

OK, here's the link: https://chaifoodblog.wordpress.com/

I can't vouch for every single recipe, but I've eaten the woman's food and she's a natural. :)
