The link is bad.

What's a celebritney? Is that a bald celebrity without underwear? And what is a google alert? Is that a warning when the Google stock price dives?

MadisonMan said...

So on second or third thought, I'm wondering if Meade, now a celebrity, has a google alert on his name? And that would mean the link isn't bad after all.

Wake up road warrior. The sun is up again and Madison needs your talents.

The link isn't bad. I'm linking to a couple comments.

Wake up road warrior.

Now we have the title of the book/movie. Road Warrior, a Love Story.

A "celebritney" is a celebrity who is famous for being famous like Britney Spears.

But I've removed that tag. It thought I had a "celebrities" tag and it autocompleted to a tag that I did have. I don't want a "celebrities" tag though.

The point is, Knox was (sort of) giving BBT a hug, and the idea of BBT actually reading that made me laugh. If he had a Google alert on his name, he really would find it.

I went to Google alert and put an alert on my name then went to Google and typed in my name. No email notice. What's up with that?

Trevor Jackson said...

None. If they're famous enough to be described as a "celebrity," there would be way too much chaff to sift through. That said, I once found the wife of a "celebrity" defending her husband on a critical post in an obscure corner of the internet.

Billy Bob is having a great day. Found out people think he looks like Meade,

All you need is a dog for alerts.

Vicki takes up her first ``Hold on, what's that'' pose at age twelve weeks in 2006. (Page reverses time order.)

(She's dragging a 10' long line that makes it easy to capture her - dogs don't know where the other end of the line is, just that you always seem to be able to capture them. Don't grab a moving line, by the way. Stomp on it first. I favor plastic coated fiberglass strand clothesline, which doesn't tangle on anything.)

those are not harem pants. Those are trousers with gathering at the hem.

Harem pants are loosely fitted in the crotch. I own two pairs. One in gold and one in black.

In Turkey i think they might be called salvar and are worn by men and women.

The last thing you want in the very hot climates is seams and chafing in that area. Also, fabric around sweaty parts of the body where the sweat with all its toxins will just accumulate should be aired and not aggravated.

I have seen very sexy older men in Turkey with such pants, but then maybe it was their skin, hair skin and eyes which were fooling me.

traditionalguy said...

Now who brought Harem Pants into this Celebritney thread? Billy Bob will snigger for sure when he sees his name is linked here.

commenter said...

i am sorry i had the wrong comments thread open.

It was an honest mistake. I have corrected my posting in the proper thread. You may delete the mistake and read about salwar pants where they should be .

Harem pants is such a modernised post shakespearean concept which i find usually cuts short the actual fashion historical concepts with all its adaption to the human species.

Which celebrities have a google alert? I'd say all of them except maybe Larry King who has never used the internet based on his unfamiliarity with how it works ..."you just punch stuff into it?" I think was the quote I heard.

NB: Now that you and Meade have been in the NYT, you each meet the requirements for being an American celebrity.

So, I have Althouse open in one window, and a local story in another. On one page, a photo of Meade, on the other I have, well.....this.
