Tonight is the sleepover of the century. Girl of the 00's that she is, Girlie Girl will host 5 of her friends tonight for lots of eating and whatever it is eleven year-olds do at a sleep over. I never had sleepovers. Well, maybe kind of in High School, Jo you camped out in Queens a lot no?
Anyway, the actual birthday is Monday, the sleepover is tonight, so we can still drive up to Maine Saturday for her to compete in a slalom/GS on Sunday. So, pray for me tonight. Of course, they will want nothing to do with me unless it involves providing sustenance and ice cream cake, so odds are I'll have a quiet evening with the TV and the couch. :)
Speaking of girls and sleeping, is birth control illegal in the state of California? What is it with the Hollywood baby boom? I would think that if they can't keep their legs closed they should at least be familiar with a condom no? Norplant? IUD? Ummm THE PILL? Britney and her Irish twins, Nicole Ritchie, Lily Allen, Jamie Lynn, Jessica Alba, rumors of Ashlee Simpson and Avril Lavigne and out there too.
There was a great column from Ellen Goodman last week about Hollywood and recent films glorifying teen/unexpected pregnancy, showing the "happily every after". You can read it here. I adore Ellen Goodman.
