Thank-you Adele, on Behalf of Brad and Ange
As many of you are aware, Brad and Angelina have decided to go their separate ways. While I am usually practical about celebrity marriage, I have to admit this one took me by surprise. If any couple had the strength to stay together in this crazy world, I thought it would be Brad and Angelina, two of the most amazing people I have ever read about or watched on TV.
I have to say that it wasn't until this am that I have been actually able to eat a whole meal without worrying about it, but now I have seen this good news from the journalists at ABC News:
Adele Dedicates Madison Square Garden Show to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
Thank-you Adele for rescuing me from deep depression with your inspirational tribute!
And now a word from our sponsor, George Orwell.
“The Lottery, with its weekly pay-out of enormous prizes, was the one public event to which the proles paid serious attention. It was probable that there were some millions of proles for whom the Lottery was the principal if not the only reason for remaining alive. It was their delight, their folly, their anodyne, their intellectual stimulant. Where the Lottery was concerned, even people who could barely read and write seemed capable of intricate calculations and staggering feats of memory. There was a whole tribe of men who made their living simply by selling systems, forecasts, and lucky amulets. Winston had nothing to do with the Lottery, which was managed by the Ministry of Plenty, but he was aware (indeed everyone in the party was aware) that the prizes were largely imaginary. Only small sums were actually paid out, the winners of the big prizes being nonexistent persons.”Back to you Katie!
― George Orwell, 1984
