Just a quickie today, I'm afraid, because I'm off to San Antonio in search of buried treasure!
Did see this, though at the IMDB:

"Hollywood beauty Kirsten Dunst has dumped her movie hunk boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal, blaming "filming commitments". Spider-Man 2 actress Dunst and The Day After Tomorrow actor Gyllenhaal had been an item for two years before the surprise split two weeks ago. Since they began dating both Dunst and Gyllenhaal have become internationally famous, and Dunst's role in the Spider-Man movies has made her one of the most recognizable actresses in the world. An insider says, 'Kirsten and Jake had been spending a lot of time apart because they both had filming commitments. But Jake was totally besotted with her and is devastated that she has broken up with him. Kirsten's career has sky rocketed. She's one of the hottest young actresses in Hollywood right now. She felt her relationship with Jake was emotionally draining and she couldn't cope with it on top of her work. It's very sad for Jake. He is really heartbroken.' "

What a fool! IF this is even true. I have my doubts. What kind of freak would dump Jake Hunkenhaal? It just can't be true. Although if it IS true, that leaves him wide open for the likes of "Terri K."! Hee hee.

Also Martha Stewart got mad at Larry King for doing the OLDEST JOKE EVER--the "Martha Stewart can re-decorate her jail cell" bit--HA HA HA. Very good material, Mr. King, KUDOS. Especially funny to say it to Martha's face right before SHE GOES TO JAIL. Ooooh, she was NOT amused. Can you blame her? Mainly, it's simply NOT FUNNY. She did say that she is going to spend her jail time writing a 'self-help' book and stated without hesitation that it is going to be "a bestseller." It's that kind of humility that really won over the jury in her trial. But you know what? I think she's right. Hell, I know I would buy one.

And one last tidbit, from, just because it's funny:

"MOSCOW, Russia (AP) -- Drunken passengers often give air crews trouble, but Russia's leading airline on Tuesday reported an "unprecedented" reversal: A passenger was assaulted by intoxicated flight attendants.

Two crew members on a domestic Aeroflot flight beat up a passenger who had complained that the flight attendants were drunk, airline spokeswoman Irina Dannenberg said.

The passenger, identified only as A. Chernopup, was aboard a recent flight from Moscow to the Siberian city of Nizhnevartovsk, Dannenberg said. She said the crew belonged to another airline, Aviaenergo.

Seeing that the crew were intoxicated and were not fulfilling their duties, Chernopup asked to be served by a sober and competent flight attendant, Dannenberg said. He was then beaten up by crew members.

On Russian flights, attendants often have to struggle to keep intoxicated passengers under control. But on this flight, Dannenberg said, flight attendants were so intoxicated that they "behaved improperly" and only began catering to passengers 1 1/2 hours into the four-hour trip.

The daily Izvestia quoted another passenger as saying that half of the food the crew served ended up on the floor, leaving the aisle strewn with debris that passengers had to walk over as they disembarked. The flight attendants who beat Chernopup were men, Izvestia reported.

According to the passenger, Chernopup left the plane with a black eye and was promptly sent to a doctor. Izvestia also reported that a criminal case was opened after Chernopup reported the incident to the police."

Adios, amigos!
