Please, please make it stop

She may be the daughter of Blythe Danner and Bruce Paltrow. If genetics alone had anything to do with it, she'd be both beautiful and a lovely, sensitive actress.

Some people hate doing chores on weekends. Au contraire, mon frere: there's nothing more relaxing that doing exactly what you need to do. The practice of the routine -- strip the bed, pull down the bath linens, wash the clothes, mow the lawn -- is exactly what I want after a week at work in which evil flying monkeys seem to escape from every possible orifice of every possible creature and bring the most unexpected, unwanted, and unplanned things to my desk.

Besides, I have no one to account to but myself. If something goes wrong, it starts and stops with me.
