Staying Faithful

For those of you who do not already know it, I am in love with Nicole Kidman, and have been for quite some time now.
And don’t even say it.
I know what you are thinking → “Cipriano,
honestly. You are so superficial. Falling for the Aussie barbie-doll!”
But hold on here!
It [my love] is
not just about her ferocious good looks, which… you’ve gotta admit, are pretty darn ferocious.
No.
There is also the money to consider!
Just today, ensconced at Starbucks, I read the following in the paper:


Nicole Kidman is the queen of Hollywood when it comes to money.
The Oscar winner, who earns as much as US$17 million a movie, tops the fifth annual list of highest-paid actresses released Wednesday by the Hollywood Reporter.
Kidman, 39, ranked second on last year’s list behind four-time top-earner Julia Roberts, who didn’t make the list this year. She spent time with her two-year-old twins. In second place, with $15 million a movie, was Reese Witherspoon, 30, who won the best-actress Oscar this year for her performance in “Walk The Line.”
Renee Zellweger, Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz placed third, fourth and fifth, respectively. They also made $15 million for each film.

Rounding out the top 10 are Halle Berry ($14 million), Charlize Theron ($10 million), Angelina Jolie ($10 million), Kirsten Dunst ($8 million to $10 million) and Jennifer Aniston ($8 million).


Now, I don’t care which way you are slicing any of those apples, but in all cases, that is enough moolah to quit my job the next day after saying “I do.”

You’ve done well for yourself, Nicole.
Yes, Reese and Renee are doing OK too, but you're doing... MORE OK!
We’re talking about the difference of a couple of million$ here. And with the way I am buying books lately, every little bit extra helps!

No, I am going to stay faithful to Nicole.
So what if she is at least a foot taller than me!
So what if she does not even know my name!
So what if she does not even READ MY BLOG!

Oh Cip...just because I don't comment on your blog entries regularly doesn't mean I don't read them. I've been waiting for you to write about me! Keep it up...the good writing that is :)

Nicole:
My God, thanks for writing in. You haven't called in a while! I guess you've been busy.
What with all of your Urban chores and stuff.... I'm sure you are busy.
Dump him! Dump him!
For God sakes, dump him!

Oh Cip...Keith would not be pleased. But I'll consider your kind offer...would you really allow me to share my millions with you? I know how much you love your current job, so I'm sure it would be hard to leave...maybe I'd just be in the way???

Dear Nicky: For you, I will leave my beloved job. My dream is to come home and find you there, you know, aproned and all.... like you were in The Stepford Wives!
You will never, never be "in the way" for me girl!

But I thought you were in love with Keira Knightly? Did the two of you have a spat and part ways? I hope Nicole treats you better. You deserve it!
