Life imitates mockery

Ever feel that life is mocking you? Tempted to say, "no that is for self absorbed drama queens." I couldn't agree more. Well, until today. Tell me what you think. Last night I went to bed flipping through London Lite, and the other freebie with the funny font, with smug satisfaction over how faintly dowdy Gwynnie was looking these days. Now don't label me a nasty popsugar witch just yet. There is a little celebrity schadenfreude in all of us. And c'mon the macrobiotic, teetotaller, Prada wearing 'earth' mother, is the international face of Estee Lauder (who control 40% of the global cosmetics market, incidentally) so somebody whose opinion counts for multi-millions thinks differently.

But that was not the mockery. No, that came this morning on my run (post late night blog and Rioja binge) around Hyde Park. There I was galloping (okay, maybe that was the horses) past the Italian Fountains listening to the Arctic Monkeys on my Ipod (in honour of Gordon Brown's music taste) when I looked up to see none other than Gwynnie herself, replete with cascading over bleached hair (meow!) obviously trying to inspire the Rapunzel trend, shuffling (us runners can be ruthless) her way past with some 50 cent look-alike security bloke a few paces behind.

All of which left me wondering two things: is Coldplay on her Ipod; and if the alcohol and gluten free mum who finds inspiration in fruit and Kabbalah needs constant supervision, why doesn't Pete Doherty?

But that is enough about the waste of talent that is Steven Spielberg's god daughter and Brad Pitt's old fiancee (forgot about that, didn't you?), we have real trivia to spend our Friday skive time thinking about. So without further ado, we have the 9th edition of City Slicker's "Week's Action, Weekend Reaction."

1) Has all the drama surrounding size 0-0 models left you craving a bit of decadent flesh? React by checking out the Beryl Cook collection at the Portal Gallery. Cook's famous paintings of fat, ordinary, unassuming people combined with her trademark playful streak of vulgarity and naughtiness should be just the clinical catwalk antidote. Not open Sundays. Until 21 October.

2) Are the endless reports of soaring personal debts and bankruptcy rates, leaving you feeling guilty every time you splurge on noodles out at Wagamama's? React by reading Beyond Baked Beans: Budget a series of unpatronising , easy-to-follow recipes to help you start cooking for yourself without draining the overdraft. Invaluable for the single or flatmate shared city dwellers cupboard.

3) Does today's picture leave you less than convinced by Estee Lauder's miracle makeover powers? React by checking out the latest London make-up craze: all natural, mineral-based cosmetics. Leading the way is a range called Lily Lolo based in Farringdon. They ship next day samples of all their products for 99p/each. Annoyingly, granola Gwynnie would probably approve.

Put on some sponsorship makeup woman.

Somebody needs to sit her down and make her eat three packets of museli in one sitting. With no milk. That should teach her. But can't see her hubby having the guts....

Who is more annoying her or Liz Hurley who she replaced on Estee Lauder billboards?

Is she running off the baby fat from Moses? He must have really raised a tide :-)

Even thought I am blond and overprocessed myself.. I don't want to start taking these vitamins and become like fertile or something. I know that's gross but whatever.

dont be put off
mineral makeup really does last
was recommended to use it by a dermie ages ago and would never switch back

samples are great when ordering on line so dont go spending heaps on the wrong colour swabs as well

Your blog is much cooler than mine. You've got attitude. If I saw Gwyenth Paltrow while jogging, I would probably crash into the next tree.

hi, thanks for visiting my blog.
what is the title of Doyle's new book?? I live in Italy and his books come out months later than in other countries

The Roddy Doyle title is Paula Spencer.

thanks. is she the same character of the woman who walked into doors? did you read the old book and this new one? Did you like it?

5:58 pm  
Blogger Shep said...

It's the same character, but not a patch on the earlier stuff. I was saying the other day to a customer - whatever happened to the Roddy Doyle revolution? All that's left is some swearing and a bad cover of Mustang Sally in the Commitments film.

Shep - I enjoyed Paula Spencer. But then again I can too often relate to the whimsical behaviour and thoughts of one fighting against the power of drink!

Heh. Mebbe yer right - my newly found sanctimonious tee-totalness can often cloud my judgement LOL

Just checked outr Lily Lolo and ordered some eye shadows and brushes. So cheap and cool how natural fibers are behind it.

Also ladies check out www.soorganic.com
Loads of organic makeup beauty kit etc.

And agree City Slicker, Gwynnie is not where it's at.

Beryl Cook is a classic. Went on back of tip here this past Saturday afternoon. Better than Modigliani

Exhibit has everything not just seaside traditional ones and Portal Gallery is devoted over to it all

Don't miss

Beryl Cook OBE "is without doubt Britain's best known and most popular painter" claims the Portal. This is a blurb I can believe. And she is self-taught, having started messing about with her son's paints in the 1940's. Her art took the saucy postcard into a whole new realm. She paints women as they are, not as we would like them to be.

Beryl Cook has been blackballed by the modern art establishment and one of the Tate’s four galleries should finally buy one of her pictures to mark her 80th birthday last week.

Thank you City Slicker for promoting one of England's greatest painters

oh WOW what a great spotting! I'm sad to hear she looks so good in person though:( But then again when you have all the money in the world and all the time - you can keep up your looks! I remember when she was engaged to Brad - they had matching haircuts - shame that didn't last - I can't stand Saint Angelina. Ahhhh one of the great things about living in a city like London - great celeb spotting!

My hubby runs in Hyde Park regularly. I'll have him keep a look out. I live out here in Ozzy land, but I've never spotted him on the trail. More's the pity. I did see Judi Densch in Tesco, or at least it looked like her.

I had no words to say. I just moved on top of her and hugged her right from top to bottom.
My naked body wanted to feel every inch of her body, and I was caressing her all over like mad.
[url=http://lolitabbssite.com/free_tiffany_lolita_picture.shtml]free tiffany lolita[/url] soon began to respond with equal vigor, Her right palm reached my rigid [url=http://lolitabbssite.com/japanese_blowjob.shtml]japanese blowjob[/url] and began pumping it slowly.
I was so damn horny, but I did not want to waste my semen, just masturbating. I wanted more...I wanted to fuck my cousin there and then.
"Oh [url=http://lolitabbssite.com/free_lolita_porn.shtml]free lolita porn[/url]...this is too much...I don't think I can keep my promise...please let me remove your panty and let me feel my [url=http://lolitabbssite.com/kiddy_sex_fuck_top.shtml]kiddy sex fuck[/url] on your pussy"...I pleaded.
To my utter surprise, without any resistance, [url=http://lolitabbssite.com/free_pedo_tpg.shtml]free pedo tpg[/url] raised her hips, and in a swift action removed her panty.
"You will only feel your [url=http://lolitabbssite.com/pedo_russian.shtml]pedo russian[/url] around my pussy...not inside..OK?" [url=http://lolitabbssite.com/Jenna_Jameson_Porn.shtml]Jenna Jameson Porn[/url] insisted.
I almost got angry, and said "OK, but let me play with your tits at least," and moved my [url=http://lolitabbssite.com/pedophile_fucking_children.shtml]pedophile fucking[/url] towards her cleavage.
I had no patience to seek her permission. I just pulled her bra straps and and quickly exposed he huge melons.
My mouth instinctly reached her left breast while my right hand was at her right tit. I sucked her like an infant,
expecting to find milk, while my palm was squeezing and kneading her other tit.

She loved her brother so much. He was older than her, 23, and she was just 19. they got along great and did most everything together. [url=http://neednewlolita.com/free_bbs_lolita_preteens.shtml]free bbs lolita preteens[/url] took a year off of school and was going to go away to the collage a few hundred miles away in a big city. Their town was small and Kitty had never lived in a big city. She was scared to move there all by herself. She especially was afraid to lose her brother.
"You aren't losing me, Kitty, I will be right here, right here waiting for you to return. I will call you and write to you if you like..."
She interrupted Jarod,
"Of course I want to keep in touch! I wish dad didn't need your help on the ranch, I wish you could come with me."
[url=http://neednewlolita.com/free_bdsm_personals.shtml]free bdsm personals[/url] pouted and lowered her head. Her brother, Jarod, lifted it with one finger and smiled,
"If you keep that lip out there a bird might land on it and shit in your mouth..."
They both laughed. She always laughed so much around him. Kitty hugged him tight and he held her close, they both wanted to stay in the moment forever. However, dad called down the stairs and they finished their morning rituals before they went out to take care of the animals.
She was already dressed and was in the bathroom brushing her teeth as her brother got dressed in his room. He took his boxers off while the door was cracked slightly open and Kitty peeked at him between the door to his bedroom and the frame. All she could see as a well toned, tight as hell ass. She had seen him naked when they where younger and experimenting with the world, but he used to be chubby. Now he was sculpted, as was she, from working hard on the ranch.
She ran the toothbrush on her teeth slower as she stared and soon was just standing there sucking on the end of it. He pulled his jeans up and threw on a t-shirt and she backed away into the bathroom to finish. As she was washing her face he came up behind her, pressing his body against her back in order to reach in front of her to get his own toothbrush. His crotch pressed firmly on her ass and she felt a little tingle go through her body. She never thought of it as sexual but it made her a little damp. This was her brother, somebody whom she loved, not a dirty man off the streets bent on getting in her pants. The thought of a twisted stranger trying to fuck her made her smile and her nipples got hard. She was normally a very dirty girl in bed. (and very rarely did she use a bed at all!)
[url=http://neednewlolita.com/free_big_tit_videos.shtml]free big tit videos[/url] smiled down at his sister while she dried her face and he put toothpaste on his toothbrush. He could smell her [url=http://neednewlolita.com/free_hardcore_teen_sex_video.shtml]free hardcore teen sex[/url], it smelled like strawberries. He loved that smell. Sometimes he would use her shampoo so he could smell strawberries all night. She did the same thing. Kitty would sometimes put a dab of his cologne on her neck so she could smell his scent all night. They never told each other this, or anybody else for that matter. People just wouldn't understand.
They went out early in the morning before breakfast and started chucking hay from a truck into the horse pasture. It was misty out and a loud thunder grew in the hills beyond. It was the beating of many hoofs. A few whinnies and snorts where heard as the horses drew closer. Soon their black outlines where seen galloping and throwing their heads up and down and side to side as they came. Kitty drove the truck off a few yards away from the sinuous mass of pure strength and wild hearts as they closed in on the food. The stallion trotted around the food, watching his mares and foals carefully, then he pushed into the crowd to eat with them. The matriarch of the group was pushing her way in next to the stallion and they nuzzled each other gently then they continued eating.
Kitty and Jarod smiled as they drove off to the barn to clean up the loose hay off the ground that they spilled from the bails. As they worked, Jarod told his sister dirty jokes he read online,
"A guy comes home from work feeling bad about what he had done there. He lays and ponders his actions for a while. A voice in his head tells him, 'it is okay, a lot of doctors have sex with their patience.' He starts to feel a little better then another voice in his head said, 'yes, but you are a veterinarian!'"
They both laughed, though he tried to keep a straight face to add to the humor. Kitty grabbed a handful of loose hay and threw it at him. He ducked and grabbed some of his own, tossing it at her. They laughed and threw hay, getting covered in it and soon she jumped on his back as he went to get more. He spun them both around and they fell to the ground in a pile of the yellow hay laughing and wrestling.
[url=http://neednewlolita.com/free_black_sex_chat.shtml]free black sex chat[/url] pinned Kitty down under him and they stopped laughing. They where breathing hard and their hearts where pounding. They looked into each other's green eyes and smiled shyly. They had just transformed into virgin lovers, touching the opposite sex for the first time. All the thoughts of being apart drifted away and they where in the moment. Nothing else existed but them, they had each other.
He bent his head down and kissed her softly on the lips. Jarod pulled his head back to make sure she wasn't going to protest and she lifted her [url=http://neednewlolita.com/free_lolitas_teenie_galleries.shtml]free lolitas teenie galleries[/url] head up and kissed him back. He slid his hands under her and held her tight as they started kissing heavier, passionately and fervently. Their tongues explored, each in the other's mouth. It was unlike any kiss either of them had ever had. This was pure passion, love and trust.
Jarod moved his hands down and pulled her shirt up, moving his fingers to the front to touch her firm, round, perky tits. Her nipples where rock hard as he touched them. Her breasts where so soft and smooth. Kitty arched her back slightly and slid her own hands up his shirt, feeling his bare chest. He was hot and she could feel his heart pounding, hers was, too. Their hearts thumped away in their chests so hard – like the beating of the wild horse's hooves on the morning damp ground.
They managed to pull each others' shirts off between heavy kisses and he deftly undid her bra from the front clasp. Her tits fell out and her hard nipples stared up at him. He lay his body on top of hers slightly so she could just feel his skin on her nipples. It drove [url=http://neednewlolita.com/free_interracial_sex_picture_gallery.shtml]free interracial sex[/url] wild. Jarod pressed his hips against hers and pushed his hardening cock into her wet pussy through their pants.
He started to unbutton her jeans as he kissed a path from her lips to her jaw, across her collarbone and between her tits. He licked and sucked each pink nipple, nibbling at times. Then he made his way down further to her tummy and hips. When he got down there he had her pants unbuttoned and pulled halfway down her upper thigh. He kissed and bit her hip bones and looked at her light brown fur patch that lay peeking over the underwear and jeans that he was sliding off.
