Goodbye, English Rose

Not ideal

This morning as I was looking at CNN.com for more pictures of the cruiseazy FLDS Oregon Trail people, I came across an article discussing how Brigitte Bardot was convicted of racism for writing that Muslims were destroying France. While I fully support jailing people for expressing their opinions and exercising their freedom of speech, the more alarming thing here is that no one was convicted of destroying Brigitte's face. It looks like a skunk died on her head and her face was hit with a frying pan and then steamrolled by a tractor, and if it is the ultimate fate of a sex symbol to end up as a withered old hag writing nutbag letters to the French President, I think Marilyn Monroe had the right idea by dying young and beautiful.

I think the bottom line here is that if Liz Taylor ends up looking like a clown in a wheelchair, and Brigitte Bardot ends up looking like this, there is no hope for the rest of us and time to throw in the towel, put down the Guerlain Issima Success Eye, call Equinox and revoke my membership and then calmly head to the nearest tar pit and jump in.

Ugh, talk about not aging gracefully. She really was magnificent, bad teeth and all. This woman obviously missed out on the plastic surgery maintenance revolution - case in point, Susan Lucci still looks decent.

Aliza and I have a plan:

When you are 40, Aliza will take you to the backyard and shoot you.

When Aliza is 40, I will take her to the backyard and shoot her.

When I am 40, Hailey will take me to the backyard and shoot me.

Its kind of an Old Yeller/Candy's "I shouldn't ought to of let no stranger shoot my dog" from Of Mice and Men.

Yes, not ideal. And not young anymore. But what did Brigitte Bardot did so wrong to you or anyone else, if you are writing about her like you are waiting for her death?
For example, I don't have bad opinion about her. And from her photos, that I have found in Internet, she seems like good person. I read article that she is fighting for animals rights. Is it wrong?
