Thanks for saving the date yesterday. Very soon I will advance your knowledge of the February 28th project.
Something different today:
Just as I sometimes ask you to fill me in on cultural events I’ve missed, now and again I am going to appeal to you to top up my feeble knowledge of Celebrity Life. This is a new series called How Are They Doing Now? You know sometimes you see someone famous in a film or TV show or something from ages ago, and wonder… how are they doing now? It’s that.
Emily and I saw an old episode of Friends yesterday. She remarked that things hadn’t worked out too well for Jennifer Aniston. She had that whole sad business with Brad Pitt and her movie career didn’t quite reach the heights you might have expected (not yet, anyway). She speculated that Aniston might have hoped for better from life.
However, I don’t like to think of Aniston being disappointed. I used to have a tremendous crush on her. I like to think she’s still done pretty well. I mean obviously she’s rich and lives in LA and all.
But is she happy? I hope so. Emily fears not. I want someone here to give me the lowdown.
Of course this is the most ludicrous tittle-tattle because nobody reading this is personally acquainted with 90s icon Jennifer Aniston, or would tell me anything about her if they did know. But in just the same way as quite a few Watsonians are always equipped to pass comment on the films of the day, perhaps some of you are up to speed with celebrity gossip and can give me a hand here. Or if not, we can all at least speculate.
Some of you are probably too young to remember or care who Jennifer Aniston is, by the way. Some of you probably look at old ‘Friends’ episodes and say ‘wow, that looks really old. Didn’t they all have floppy hair?’ But I’m reluctant to acknowledge those people. Because that is MY CHILDHOOD YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT.
