I didn’t notice. I was too busy studying her nose buried into the side of his face. See how good she is at that? At looking like love? You all however were much more observant. I received many, many emails about this yesterday – the length of Jennifer Aniston’s hair provided some readers with an Encyclopaedia Brown moment! (Did you read Encyclopaedia Brown?

Well, it’s all over the mainstream North American media. George Clooney is a free agent. Did the Italian Queen miscalculate? Really? Her? She’s played it so well so far... Or is it a case of having extracted from him the most she could possibly extract? Some money, clothes, connections, and above all things. Full Story

Big headlines this week about Pippa Middleton and her singleness. They said her (ex) boyfriend Alex Loudon isn’t happening anymore. And why not? After the Wedding, she became an Industry in her own right. Pippa is an Economy now.
