"I knew within a minute that she was ... hard-working."
Only one minute to work out someone is hard working? Someone please explain this to my boss.
Paris Hilton and documentary filmmaker Adria Petty were last night wearing their posh frocks at the Toronto Film Festival for the premiere of the latter's Paris, Not France - the result of a year trailing around after the talented heiress. According the Beeb, the film shows our fave socialite "at work on red carpets, in her …
talented for a 30 minute video me thinks...
at work on red carpets - cleaning them or walking on them? doesn't take a genius to walk straight though I'm sure she struggles with the concept (oh look this carpet doesn't match my nails, i can't possibly walk on that)
in her business dealings - night shot videos? What business, trying to make money out of muppets through pointless tv appearances? Or in buying new fashion pets?
taking about her image - that's all she ever does!
and relaxing at home - so doing sod all with her talentless ass, clearly.
paris, well duh!
"All of this will come as a terrible shock to all of us who like our Paris just the way she was - hard at work on carpets, lounging on a chaise taking people's cherries, and so forth. "
Ah, crap, you stole the comment from me ...
"hard at work on carpets", LOL, Petty has obviously no idea of her filmo.
Of course not! They were grapes after all...
"Wait, there is a side of Paris we haven't yet seen ?"
Yes! The inside, man... the inside! Don't want either, I suppose all stomachs look pretty much the same.
Yay, legit use of the icon, even if the P angle is actually there.
It has endlessly amused me the last few years to witness El Reg readers swallowing the Paris party line, viz. that she's a dimwit and an airhead of the first water with nothing more on her mind than spreading her legs.
She's very successfully created an airhead persona for public view, and she's making a lot of money out of that myth. In fact, she's a lot smarter and a lot cannier businesswoman than she ever lets on.
Good for her!
I catch up on IT news at work and would like nothing more than to be sacked because of the sophomoric machito drivel that gets mixed in with the IT news and dry wit that I enjoy.
Oh, to have all my time free to look for the dirty parts of the Reg and point them out to my friends to remind them what a hip, happening and all-around fabgear dude I am.
I'm well aware of the fact that dirty bits are to be found in the canon of English literary classics, although they aren't what make the classics classic. They do, however, serve to alienate women and various ethnic groups so let's see more of this in the Reg!
"As soon as I met her, I knew within a minute that she was a cool chick, a smart girl, and hard-working"
Those crazy scientists must have managed to create an alternate universe and I've been somehow transferred to it.
Perhaps this is an antimatter universe and what I'm reading is about the anti-Paris.
Wow, maybe there's an anti-Tom Cruse who's straight.
This is going to take some adjustment...
A Smart Girl would be Thinking Last Tango in Paris Drive ...... an Adult Step for Virgin Novice/Immaculate Host and QuITe a Quantum Leap into Venus and Amazon Rules of Engagement for Enjoinment.
But you wont get too many of the Brothers sharing that Tort/Taught/Thought such is their Awful Ignorance is Such Sweet Perfect Power...... ITs AIMazing Grace.
Why would IT be Unused? Too Powerful for Brotherly Controls?
You Bet your Bottom Dollar, it is. Will the Markets Crash 42 Support and Run with IT, or Crash 42 Suppress and Deny ITs XXXXistents, Creating their Own Nemesis .... Virtualised Foe to Challenge and Defeat Them.
You may need to work on your French, but at least you've seen a bit beyond the veneer.
Airhead or not (and I'd vote for not, knowing the kind of world she lives in), the raw fact is that the girl doesn't need an inheritance as she's cashing in at a rate that every other celeb can only dream of.
So it's jealousy - she takes in a day what quite a few not even make in a year. If that requires accepting being called dumb, well, that's smart too.
Paris, because there is only one.
Quote: "... just like everyone else I wondered what she was all about."
Everyone else? Everyone? Well, I for one have never "wondered what she was all about." What is there to wonder about? She's a vacuous rich spoiled 'Murccan bimbo, whose main purpose in life is to act as an object of ridicule for us El Reg commentards.
Now, that Sarah Bee - I've often admiringly wondered what she's all about ;)
I'm not a big fan of the whole paris thing..
but you gotta think for a moment.
For someone that seems like a ditzy blonde girl, she's making a bucketload more money than all of us.
Clearly there is something smart behind the "image" you see on tv.
Most likely a team of people i'd say.

...that the messing about with those big hadron things has transported us to a new reality."
Wasn't it messing around with a big hadron that made her famous on the intarwebs to begin with?
Alright, I'll accelerate out of here quietly.
are after all in the business of making money. It's generally in their interest to make things out in such a way that more people will watch it.
I would not be surprised in the least if it turned out that Paris was, if not actually intelligent, then at least average.
Certainly not the bumbling, stupid, ditzy barbie doll that the press made her out to be.
