I Killed Anne Bancroft

So two weeks ago, Carlyn and I were reading an article about Angelina Jolie in the always entertaining and mindnumbing magazine In Style -- you know, the one featuring Katie Holmes as "Single in the City"? The one that was outdated before it hit the newsstands? Enough digression, I'll get to the crazy Cruise-to-be later... so In Style article on Angelina Jolie... looking through it, Carlyn proclaimed, "Angelina Jolie is going to be like Anne Bancroft when she's older." I asked, 'Who's Anne Bancroft again?' Carlyn explained in some detail, and we continued reading. I remarked that when I was younger I though the words to Mrs. Robinson were "She's a slut and more than you would know...." Thanks for confusing me with your character's sluttery, Anne Bancroft...

The next day, we woke up and turned on the news to find that Anne Bancroft was dead. "Oh my god, I killed Anne Bancroft!" Carlyn exclaimed. "How many times have you ever heard me talk about Anne Bancroft?!"


"I know! I killed Anne Bancroft!"

Flash forward two weeks... we're looking up Calista Flockhart on IMDB to see what movie she was in with Cameron Diaz. "Is she still dating Harrison Ford?" Carlyn asks. "Geez! They've been dating for a long time! He's getting old!"

"Yes... and he has an earring... IMDB says they've been dating since 2002!" We agree that's weird. Ally McBeal and Indiana Jones... very weird.

This afternoon Carlyn announces she's done it again -- she's jinxed a celeb. "Guess who got engaged today?? Calista Flockhart and Harrison Ford! As much as I talk about crazy Tom Cruise, you'd think something would happen to him, but no!"

Watch out, Tom... you're next. In the meantime, look out for the debut album from Carlyn's new band, I Killed Anne Bancroft.
