sirocco

See Uncle Jessie, the Mona Lisa and others at dirtycarart.com.

Last week's weather was nothing short of a horror. Starting on Sunday the sky turned brown and the sun was completely blocked out. On Monday the wind began blowing like a hurricane, and on Tuesday and Wednesday the rain came down in buckets. See previous posts whining about the rain to confirm this.

But this rain was brown and made everything in its path (which was everything) horribly filthy and dirty. I'd never seen rain like it before. Turns out it has a name: Sirocco. About once a year a huge wind blows dust and sand all the way from North Africa into Spain and France. The parents we see at St. Martin school all made it clear that the Sirocco arrives, lasts for a few days and then dies out. Usually it happens in March or April but this year it came much later. Other bloggers that we really enjoy have also complained about this horror. Thank goodness it's gone.

Interesting about the dirty rain.

As a close, special friend of the Jolie-Pitts, could you please clear up this matter about whether the twins have been born. ET is standing by their story that the babies were born Friday but everyone else says no way. We need some verification from an insider.

I tell you what, where there's smoke, there's fire. A few examples of things we heard (a lot) before they were confirmed:

-Brad and Jen breaking up
-Ashlee Simpson pregnancy
-Jamie Lynn Spears pregnancy
-Angie preggers with twins
-JLo's twins to be named Max & Emme

We must also remember that the last time Ang was pregnant, she also fibbed about how far along she was to throw off the press. So, when she said she was due in August, that was just, well, a lie.

Oh, and I guess I could send you photos from inside the delivery room, but that would violate the confidentiality agreement I signed. ;)
