Gotta Love Lindsay
Being a tangential follower of the exploits of Lindsay Lohan means that you get a news blurb nearly every day. She is one newsworthy young woman. To her credit, she does indeed have talent and she is a credible performer. Some of her antics can be ascribed to youthful exuberance and experimentation. So be it.
Her trips to court have been chronicled. Drugs and alcohol, yeah!. She has been reprimanded in a number of meaningless and ineffective ways. Rehab meetings, well, she missed some, but she was busy. She got marooned in Cannes when her passport was stolen, what can you do. She wore a SCRAM ankle bracelet, which uses Breathalyzer technology. It went off at the MTV awards party, but she claims she did not drink. Witnesses corroborated her denial.
Yesterday, she had a long awaited court date for 2007 drug probation violations and for her failure to attend alcohol education classes. Judge Marcia Revel SENTENCED her to 90 days in jail, IN JAIL. The thespian did her best using her elocution and presentation skills to convince Judge Revel otherwise. She looked remorseful, she apologized and she tugged mightily at the heart strings of all. It was moving. Oh, she did look nice. She impressed with blond hair, tasteful makeup and well done eyes designed for a court appearance. Ms. Lohan even took the time to message her nails. wwtdd glommed onto that expressive nail work. Double L has spunk and insouciance.
Judge Revel, you did a good job. Even though the miscreant Lohan will serve only 20-30 days, your message is sent. At least she will have forced "rehab" for a few weeks. Somehow, though, Ms. Lohan's spirit is not likely to be altered. Time will tell. Some of her followers think she's a rebel and think she is cool. Cool, indeed!
