Why? Dang ol' why?
Well, Brazil is out of the World Cup--just didn't have the skills--and I'm hitting the road for Cackalacky. I'll just leave you with this imponderable question: WHAT do people see in Jennifer Aniston?

She's not the world's worst actress, but to me she's just as bland as boiled bread. I have to admit that I was a little disappointed to see so much hype about her on my first trip to London earlier this year, as I'd been hoping that the UK would be the kind of place where people don't have time for Jennifer Aniston. And now I'm seeing an in-depth profile of her on my favorite Brazilian newspaper site and how her real-life splitup with Brad Pitt affected her during the filming of her latest dumb movie. WTF? Deeply disappointing, as disappointing as the way the Brazil team choked in the quarterfinals. It's not that I hate her, just that she's about 5,187,490,532 on my list of Things That Deserve Attention, right in between pocket lint and belly button de-fuzzing.

Any brave JA fans out there care to explain? I promise to listen with an open mind.

Not a fan... but I can't dislike any of the 6 Friends' actors... even Jennifer, who hasn't done anything good since

Ah, shame about the World Cup girl. Seems like everyone I know is having their team wiped out. I can't really explain the Anniston thing, sorry. She seems 'nice'.

Seems nice to me, too - I always thought I could imagine actually having a conversation with her that didn't focus on HER (unlike many other *personalities*)!

You know what? Forget what I said before. I can be such a nitwit sometimes. I've deleted that comment. So, honestly, I'm not that upset about Brazil. I'm just glad we lost fair and square to a team that was playing well, not in penalty kicks (the shittiest way to win OR lose) or because of questionable refereeing the way other teams did. Having 5 World Cups under one's belt has a way of giving a country a bit of perspective ; )

I am sad about Brazil, but they played badly, all WC actually. I had been so much looking forward to see Ronaldinho play but he never did / could...

As for JA, she married the right man to get famous, she is beautiful in a very average way (nobody has hot dreams about her I'd expect) but I don't think she's a great actress at all...
