…I was going to post today about John Jacob Astor, the founder of the Pacific Fur Trading company. It was founded today about a jillion years ago, back in 1794 or so.
He was the first American to become a multi-millionaire.
But, I’ll save that for another day.
The Fur Is Flying Again as Bristol Palin’s memoir, Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far comes out tomorrow.
She’s 20 freakin’ years old, what kind of memoir can it be?
According to all reports she trashes the McCain family for their excesses, hauty attitudes, and all that “looking down their noses” at the Palin family.
Bristol, talk to your mom, she might be able to explain why some people look down their noses at ya’ll.
I sUPpose I’ll have to get knocked UP, taken captive by the Taliban, kidnapped by a serial rapist, or have my Mother run for Vice President to get my book published.
Ok, that last one is probably a good idea. She’d kick some ass UP in Washington I’m sure; she’s kicked plenty for the last 92 years…ask around…the woman is serious when it comes to proper behavior.
But, back to Bristol. Bristol and Meghan McCain have been at it since the get go. Bristol says in her book that she “felt like she needed to watch her back” around Ms. McCain.
I checked my list of “books I want”, and I don’t see hers there.
My birthday’s Sunday, and if you’re looking for a gift – as you darn well should be – pass this one UP, I’m pretty much over people who can’t write getting book deals.
And a little jealous too!
