Train of Thought? Derailed

Christmas Song Lyric of the Day:

Wrap your presents to your darling from you / Pretty pencils to write I love you pretty paper pretty ribbons of blue

Willie Nelson
/ “Pretty Paper

I just got back from Target; I had to pick up more Christmas supplies, some groceries, and toiletries. And, wouldn’t you know it, I don’t particularly like Wal-Mart, so instead of going to the Wal-Mart three minutes from my house, I went all the way to the Maryville Target. At this point, I’d rather have the nicer shopping experience. Also, the Wal-Mart near my house? It’s been purse-snatcher central lately. Yet more incentive to stay away.

Anyhoo, I had a post subject in mind for tonight, but once I fired up my trusty MacBook and saw the headline “Britney Spears’ sister really is pregnant,” I got distracted and lost my train of thought. I mean, I know Jamie Lynn Spears is famous and makes her own money, but why is she — a 16-year-old — living with her 19-year-old boyfriend? Especially in light of her mother, Lynne Spears, being busy writing a book about — wait for it — family values. For a Christian publisher, natch. I’m guessing the book will probably get scrapped and that Jamie Lynn’s show, Zoey 101, will come to a quick and tidy end. As it is, last I checked, condoms and other forms of birth control are actually pretty affordable. Cheap, even.

You know, I could make jokes about how screwed up the Spears family is, but really, it’s all just too sad.
