    A little somethin’ somethin’ that will be showing up at Angelina Jolie’s house today

    April 2, 2008

    Angelina Jolie’s Hollywood Baby Shower GiftNicole Richie’s Baby Basket

    Do you have any idea how difficult it is to put 7 shirts into a gift basket/box so they are all visible?  The result?  You can’t read any of them.  The shirt under the tag?  Drinking for Two, of course.   

    In the drama of getting the baskets together for the Hollywood stars, I thought I was alone when I walked into the CFFG’s office. I heard the sound of Rush on the radio in the back room and walked around the corner to see a white-haired gentleman washing chocolate fountains in the industrial-sized sinks.

    K: Hello. You must be Sam, Melissa’s dad.
    S: Well, HELLO there.
    K: So nice to meet you.

    We chit-chatted for a while. And then, it came, as I can only describe it, out of the blue.

    S: Aren’t you a pretty thing?
    K: Why…..thank you?

    I felt the sudden urge to lean up and touch my hair. My hair that had been washed every other day for years, but probably hadn’t seen a brush since the late ’80s. I refrained.

    S: You married?

    Maybe I should have mentioned that Sam turned 80 this year. Maybe that information doesn’t matter. Who knows? I’ll just throw it out there for good measure.

    K: As a matter of fact, I am. And I have two small boys.
    S: Hm. Are you happily married?
    K: (laughing) As a matter of fact, I am VERY happily married.
    S: I was just wondering if you were interested in upgrading. But if you are happily married, then I guess that’s good for you.
    K: It is.
    S: How old are you?
    K: Well, I’m (mumbling).
    S: You are too old for me. But only by a year. I can give you…what is that thing the pope gives…compensation?
    K: (thinking, “If only the pope was giving compensation”) Dispensation?
    S: Dispensation. That’s right.
    K: But I heard you only like redheads.
    S: Eh. I can give you a dispensation for that too.

    Well, alrighty then.

      Oh I can just see Angelina driving up to ‘ol Billy Bob’s house in a mini-van with the MNAC crew to do a ring and run! “HEY BILLY BOB, REMEMBER THAT VIAL I USED TO WEAR? TAKE THAT!”

      Well you ladies would probably would have it easier with him, just hit the button and the gate and run. Oh and with the paparazzi following the entourage, there goes anonymous…….

      Now when you say “Rush on the radio in the back room” do you mean Rush Limbaugh or the band Rush? Just curious. Adds to the drama of the situation.

      Dispensation … cracks me up!

    11. Kris says:

      Oh wow… I so want to be *someone* so I can get stuff.

      I guess I’ll just have to buy my own. 🙂

    12. Jamie says:

      Those are so stinkin’ cool. Free stuff for famous people, huh? Hmmm, I guess I need a new profession.

      I followed your link from Twitter. Hi! I follow you and you’re probably like, ‘WHO the hell is THAT chick?’ I’m harmless. Kinda. Hey! You said you had a negative comment. Where is it? I needed a good laugh. I love it when people don’t get the joke! They’re so fun to laugh at.

      Gah. Making me wish I could put my hands on my credit card right now so that I could order one for myself.

      All that cute baby stuff…

      Know what’s NOT cute? Getting hit on by icky old, gross men. (I embellished a little)

    15. Rachel says:

      Makes me wish I was somebody famous! Why is it the ones who can afford to buy one of each are given them all for free?! 😉

      *sigh* To have a baby to wear all these cute shirts!

    17. Sky says:

      Can I just add that I love the pink “If you pick me up, we’ll both feel better” shirt. Even though my Pea can’t talk, I KNOW that is what she’s thinking! Stinkin’ adorable, it is!

      Hey girl! You’re a hit. My girls are sporting your T-‘s on my site and I am getting slammed with e-mails wanting to know where I got the cute T-s! Love em babe…. I will post your site on my blog.

      You go girl! Do worry, Oprah has people who will brush your hair before taping the show!

    20. Kristi says:

      80 or 18, it’s still nice to be hit on. Although, in all honesty, I’d rather be hit on by an 18 year old! 🙂

      Love the baskets and I too wish I were famous just so I could get good, free stuff like this.
