Another Celebrity Gripe

Just one more and then I will be done for today.

Last fall I was in my RE's office and in walks Penn Gilette of Penn & Teller fame. They are very famous magicians and have a show here in Vegas. Anyway, with him is his wife (I was thrilled because in w world where celebrity men marry the hot chick with the huge tits, this lady was normal and very sweet looking) and also his little daughter who was maybe 6 months old. I overheard them talking with my RE that they were trying again but this time with the goal of having a boy.

So today as I am supposed to be working, I am reading my People magazine. In the Passages section what do I see? Penn Gilette and his wife Emily are expecting a boy in June.

See, the thing is, I'd take anything. A boy, a girl, whatever. And there people out there selecting boy or girl and getting their wish.

And you want to know the best part? The sweet little girl I saw them with? They named that poor child Moxie Crimefighter. What the hell is that? I can live with Apple. But that?

Come the hell on people.

    The name Moxie makes me think of the blogger called Moxie ( but Crimefighter? they have got to be kidding?

    If I hear of one more person who aborts because it's not the sex they want, I would like to forever declare them barren. That pisses me off. I don't know if that's what they did, but I wouldn't put it past the Hollywood set. How insane.

    Come on, girl, you can count on Ali... ;)

    I saw a show on him once and he's a weird guy. He collects tattoos - from other people. Yes, I'm serious. He collects skin with people's tatts on them. I presume the people are dead and not excising great amounts of flesh for him.

    Moxie Crimefighter seems to be the most normal thing about him. And yeah, he's annoying (although I didn't always think that).

    I'll never understand how someone can want one gender over another. Even with 2 girls, I didn't "want" a boy. IT DIDN'T MATTER!! The CHILD was what was important, not gender!! UGH!

    And sometimes I wonder if celebs make up awful names and then just report that to the media, but have really chosen perfectly names for their children. KWIM? I sure hope so, cuz Moxie Crimefighter is AWFUL.

    You know, things like that REALLY piss me off! Since i have two boys, I am forever hearing,"Don't you want a girl?", "YOu NEED to have a girl". Or my favorite when I mention that I cannot get pregnant without HELP,"Well, they can gender select the sperm to make sure you have a girl." Or, "You can adopt a girl." I was seriously happy that I ended up having a healthy CHILD after all we'd been through. I mean isn't that what most people say when asked what they want to have? Course, maybe some people are just big liars. I don't know. This is a very sensitive issue for me.
