Tom and Katie sittin' in a tree...

Well, this is icky...

Tom Cruise is dating Katie Holmes.

Not that either Katie — whom I think is very cute — or Tom — whom I would think was very cute if I swung that way — is icky. But what's with the whole dating-someone-who-could-be-your-parent/child business? (Just barely in this instance — Tom's 42, Katie's 26. But still within the realm of biological possibility.)

What would you talk about? What would you find in common culturally? And wouldn't you just live in abject terror of the day the other decided s/he needed someone younger/more mature?

Not that I'm in the market, mind you, but it seems to me that if I were, I'd seek out someone with a similar frame of reference — who grew up listening to the same songs, seeing the same movies, watching the same TV shows, experiencing the same events playing out on the world stage.

You know, someone who wouldn't look at me cross-eyed when I mentioned something that happened before the Clinton administration.

So much to comment on, so little time. I was so shocked to hear the news about Bo. I mean I always assumed pot but cocaine and strip clubs? Say it ain't so! Now this was not as shocked as I was to hear the awful news about Constantine's dismissal, (reality tv show conspiracy theory in full effect by the way).

And while we're on the topic of shocking revelations, Katie and Tom, what the hell?

They're both looking for notches on their belts before settling down.
