an apology and a rant

Ok, so when I said that moving to Tampa and starting school wouldn't change anything about my blog except maybe the topic matter I failed to consider two things.
1) My day goes like this -

  • wake up
  • get dressed
  • go to school
  • get very stressed
  • drive home in terrible traffic
  • attempt to de-stress
  • go to bed
  • wash, rinse, repeat

2) because that is my day, I don't really have time for anything interesting to happen to me and I don't have time to write, but I also have nothing to write about. I mean, I shouldn't be apologizing for not writing in my blog but I really like my blog. And I really like the blogs I used to read on a regular basis and now I feel like I'm so far behind I just don't even know how to catch up. Joanna told me just to "do one of those rants that you do"

Ok, fine. Here's a rant for you.

Why are so many celebrities having twins these days? This seems like a major conspiracy. Seriously. 1.9% of the worlds population are twins. And of that population, only 8% of those are identical twins (.2% of the world population). So doesn't it seem suspicious that Julia Roberts, Marcia Cross, Patrick Dempsy, P-Diddy, Dianna Krall, Nancy Grace, Genna Davis, Dennis Quaid, Jennifer Lopez, Angelina Jolie and now Rebecca Romijn (along with some other b-list celebrities who I either didn't know who they were or didn't feel like they were worth noting) all have or are having twins...only since 2004!

Ok, lets say that you knew 20 different people of different ages, ethnicity's and backgrounds and then 11 of them (not including couples...just one person) gets pregnant with twins in a 4 year time span. That's insane, and nearly statistically impossible. I don't know anything about statistics but I'm sure it has to be some kind of impossibility.

But, you might say, just because they're all famous, that doesn't mean they know each other so comparing them to a group of people that you know (assuming that they know each other, as well) doesn't work. Ok, so lets say there is this office building, all of these people work for the same company. This company's name is Hollywood. And then, bam- twins. Bam - twins. Bam - twins. Maybe it's something they're putting in the office water cooler.

It's like babies used to be the cool accessory and now 2 babies at one time are the new accessory and with unlimited funds and the best fertility doctors in sunny California...your dream of giving birth to adorable best friends can now be yours! Don't go the Britney Spears route, popping them out an entire 10 months apart! Let us create them for you in a dish and stick them in your uterus, whether you're having trouble conceiving or not! Twins, way better than just one! And think about the press you'll get!

Hey, no need to apologize! Read when you can and above all else, save your sanity. The twins? I consider it more of an advertisement for birth control than anything else!
