Creative Boredom Killer: Who is Your Celebrity Spouse and What Does that Tell You?


I wouldn’t by any means call myself an insomniac, but when woken up in the middle of the night (which let’s face it, with an eight month old, happens pretty much every night) it usually takes me at least an hour to get back to sleep.  During this hour it’s possible at least 1.3 million thoughts are running through my head:

-          What should I wear to work tomorrow?
-          Could I get by without a shower in the morning?
-          Is a pop-tart a healthy enough breakfast for a three year old?
-          Would yesterday’s “accident” be interesting enough to blog about?
-          Can I afford a maid?

If the random thoughts continue I have no chance of falling back to sleep.  I’ve found if I try to concentrate on one subject I’ll eventually bore myself to sleep.  Last week I found a subject to concentrate on that I wanted to share, you know, in case you ever need to bore yourself.

It started as an attempt to come up with the star I thought best to play myself and my friends in a movie.  Once I decided on all my friends I then started choosing actors for their significant others.  I would put these two stars together and ponder whether a relationship between them would mirror the relationship between my friends.  I actually found this experiment to be very revealing and often point-on to the real-life couple’s status or the status I could see them eventually reaching. 

I thought I would share a few of these with you as examples.  For the two or three of my friends who actually read this blog, don’t worry, none of the below are you!

Daryl Hannah and James Franco: oddly enough I can see this Hollywood fantasy couple as quite ideal for each other, regardless of the age difference. 
Reality Couple: Quite ideal for each other!  Odd, but ideal.

Julia Roberts & Josh Duhmel: ah, yes, the beautiful people with beautiful children. They laugh together and seem perfect to the outside world.  But inside their doors, things aren’t always perfect.
Reality Couple: Gorgeous and miserable!

Anne Hathaway & Mel Gibson:  quite obviously this Hollywood couple would be doomed for disaster.  Sweet girl next door meets total creep.
Reality Couple: Can you tell I don’t like this baby daddy?  Yep, I’ve smelt disaster from day one.

Renee Zellweger & Heather Ledger: interesting huh?  I haven’t quite been able to decide if this is a good match or not.  She could have been laid back enough for the late Ledger, or could she?
Reality Couple: Spot on.  I have no idea whatsoever if they should be together or not.  I guess only time will tell.

Angelina Jolie & Ben Affleck: she’s a stuck up bitch, he’s a cool guy. 
Reality Coupe: Oh wait, this real life couple is already divorced.  Couldn’t see that coming…..

Sandra Bullock & Dennis Quaid: PERFECT!  PERFECT!  PERFECT! 
Reality Couple: Okay, I admit it, this was actually me and my husband.  Excuse me?  Yes Sandra Bullock would play me.  Okay, maybe not Miss Congeniality Sandra Bullock but the Sandy that played Sidda from Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, yep that’s me!   

Give it a shot next time you need to kill some time.  You might be surprised at what you find out.  Be sure to come back and tell me!
