Waiting for My Real Life to Begin

The life and times of a girl named Swishy.

Hey, Brad ... call me!

I love that it is 2:06 a.m. and I am completely like, OH, MY GOSH, BRAD AND ANGELINA HAD THEIR BABIES! I HAVE TO TELL SOMEONE!

So ...

Guess what? Brad and Angelina had their babies!

I was at a barbeque earlier tonight and I was talking about them because I'd read that she was going to be induced on Tuesday and I was like, I am totally going to be refreshing People.com all day on Tuesday now. You know how people sometimes say things like, "Who even CARES about celebrities and their babies?" or "Does anyone even CARE that Angelina Jolie is pregnant?" I always assume that when people say that around me, it's a hypothetical, and an ironic hypothetical at that, because of course I care. Ohhh, do I care. I was telling my friend earlier that I care so much I seriously feel like I should send a gift or volunteer to babysit or ask to be the godmother or something. I care DEEPLY. And I am already as giddy as a little girl on Christmas morning thinking about the very special issue of People magazine that should appear in my mailbox, oh, six weeks from now with the first pictures (SIX MILLION DOLLAR PICTURES!) of the twins.

I totally believed all the rumors that it was two girls, so I'm surprised it's a boy and a girl. I don't know how I feel about the names (Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline). Knox is fine, it kind of goes with Pax and Maddox, so that's cool. But whenever I hear Vivienne, I think of Rosie O'Donnell because that's her daughter's name (please don't act surprised that I know that), and I'm like, blahhhh. I thought the names from the false alarm story (Isla Marcheline and Amelie Jane) were cute, so I wish it was one of those instead.

I know, can you believe they didn't ask my opinion first? ME NEITHER!

You are literally the only other person in the world I know who was ALSO up at 2a.m. (though I wasn't necessarily refreshing PEOPLE, I did check it before bed, just like I do EVERY night!), reading about their twins excitedly. I should have figured and emailed you immediately to discuss! Good catch on the Maddox/Pax/Knox "X" thing.

Can a "poor Jennifer Aniston" story be far behind? That's what I can't stand because clearly she's moved on from Brad.

Ahhhh, pop culture. The next time VH1 does a Pop Culture Wold Series, we need to join forces!

I can't wait to see those babies! Their first (biological) baby was so obnoxiously beautiful that I MUST know if these 2 will be too.

Hmmm... I love the name Vivienne, but am not sold on Knox. But yeah. They didn't ask me for advice either. Harumph.

I AM SO EXCITED!!!! and it's a BOY and a girl!!!! you know they are sooo cute....and six million?? wow.

I guess knox IS kinda cute....but I like the other names for the girl better...and why DIDN'T they ask you first??? HELLO!!!!

At 2:04 PM, Blogger Manic Mom said...

It's the BRAD-Y BUNCH!!!!

Ha, I KILL ME!!!! Yes, I do!!!

I THINK the name KNOX ROX! All the Xs are just cool for them.

Vivienne sounds very French. I cannot believe they have six children! I would love to be a part of their lives for just one day. They need a reality show--win a chance to be a Brangelina Nanny!

I would SOOOOO enter that one!

(Swishy, what are you doing with yourself on your first FREE Sunday!?!?!?!?)

At 3:07 PM, Blogger Eileen said...

You crack me up. Brad and Angelina would be lucky to get you as a godmother. lucky

I actually like Vivienne...did you ever read the Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood? The main character is Vivienne, and she was awesome - sucking down bloody mary's, smoking up cigs and swearing like a sailor. I hope that helps. I know it did me.

I hear ya - Keith and Nicole never consulted me about their name choices, either! Not only that, but I had to hear the news about little Sunday from the internet - they didn't even think to call. Humph.

At 6:08 PM, Blogger Swishy said...

OK, so don't you even worry that E! made Ryan Seacrest come into work and do a special breaking news segment at 2:30 a.m. I think I was a little more excited than he was ... ha ha.

And you are so right ... you KNOW we're gonna get a "where was Jennifer Aniston when she heard the news" story. Where was she? On top of John Mayer, probably.

What else ... I am reading now that the pictures might go up to $20 MILLION. TWENTY MILLION! At least Brad and Angie donate the money. I bet those babies are gorgeous, gorgeous.

At 6:40 PM, Blogger Kristabella said...

I like the names. Not as weird as Shiloh. And the way the news person here said Vivienne made it sound so pretty.

At 9:34 PM, Blogger Melek said...

what ever happened to people naming their kids Mary or Susan or Jill? Seems like now baby names have to have more than 3 syllables or contain odd consonants like X or Q or be named after a drink or a city or a day of the week.

i think this is just bad news for Shiloh. she alrady doesn't get any media attention....

At 10:10 PM, Blogger House of Jules said...

Your answer to my "poor Jennifer Aniston story alert" comment made me laugh! She probably WAS on top of John Mayer. Maybe she was thinking about Balls (I left you a response on my "Balls" post).

With a boy AND a girl, they still have a perfectly balanced family: 50% male, 50% female. 50% adopted, 50% conceived.

And here I thought you knew EVERYTHING about Brangelina--still, you were the first person I thought of when I read that the twins are finally here :-)

At 11:02 PM, Blogger Michelle said...

You are so my personal gossip update. I didn't know that there were twins.

Oddly, Knox is the name I have more troube with as I keep thinking he's a Jell-O baby (Knox makes gelatin). Vivienne I really like... until I remember your comment on Rosie O'Donnell's baby being named Vivienne (again, Rosie has a baby? Her own?).

Amelie I do like a lot though... Isla not so much. But obviously my opinion won't be carrying a lot of weight with them, considering my ignorance and all!

I hadn't heard! I must live under a rock. And I watched the news today, too. Was all about the election. Maybe MSNBC lives under a rock too! haha

The babies have to be gorgeous. They both probably have pouty little lips!

At 1:00 AM, Blogger JenKneeBee said...

Wow! I hadn't heard either. I think the name Vivienne is beautiful. Knox is just okay, but it definately goes with their other kids' names.

At 7:55 PM, Blogger AlaneM said...

Congrats to the happy family! I'm always excited to hear about twins cos I've got a pair myself.

I'm not surprised you are going through so many feelings right now. I'm sure it will take awhile before you figure out the new you & can hop off the roller coaster of emotions. But I know that the new you is going to be even more fabulous than the you we've all loved for so long.

At 12:10 AM, Blogger Golightly said...

I'm liking the names - it doesn't shock me coming from them. What's going to annoy me are the 10,00 parents in the next few years that are going to be using those names. I bet they are just as cute as Shiloh's 1st baby pictures. Jeez - what do you think Jennifer Aniston is doing right now?

At 10:57 AM, Blogger Bina said...

I'm right here with ya. Vivienne? Maybe they pronounce it differently. But yea, I SO do not like that name!!!!!!!!

At 4:34 PM, Blogger Stephanie said...

I too, totally fell for the rumor about the two girls. So when I read the names I was like "Who names their daughter Knox???" I was very relieved to hear it was a boy instead.
