Culture: Guess who said this quote, and we’ll tell you later

  • I feel like I’ve been pregnant more than a year. I never gave up. But I can tell you that it was physically and emotionally exhausting.
  • Celine Dion • Regarding her new pregnancy (finally!); Dion had been trying in-vitro fertilization for a while before it actually happened. She was successful on her sixth attempt, and now her spawn will start spreading Diane Warren-inspired over-the-top light-pop vocals in about 16 years or so. Sigh. We can wait. source

U.S.: The Bush twins are keeping the secret service busy still

  • Despite their dad being out of office, the service is still on their backs. Having given the Secret Service “fits” during their dad’s presidency – Jenna, for example, running through red lights trying to lose the agents following her – you think they’d be glad to be rid of her. However, just before W. left office, he signed an executive order giving them coverage for an unspecified period of time. It’s not uncommon – Bill did it for Chelsea – but considering all the trouble Jenna and Barbara took to get rid of them, you’d think they’d want to be rid of the service. Guess not. source
