...hang him by his balls

I did some quick perusing of the new Karen Carpenter book and it is filled with odd facts. On the day that Karen died, which was at her parents home, she had gone down stairs to start the coffee machine. Her usual practice was to then set out three bowls and three mugs for breakfast. This specific morning she only set out two bowls and two mugs and then went back upstairs, where she died. She was scheduled to sign her final divorce papers from the penniless man who took her for a ton of money on that very afternoon. Her fiance also told her just days before their wedding that he was unable to have children, something that she had definitely wanted. It came as a shock and a betrayal to Karen who insisted on calling off the wedding. Her Mother's response, as Karen was ready to call off the wedding was, 'you made your bed now sleep in it.' The wedding was a farce, the honeymoon even moreso and Karen agreed to pay the louse a million more dollars and told him to 'get lost.' Why were there only two bowls and mugs left out that morning? Urban Dictionary comments that "While some gold diggers are males... they are overwhelmingly females since older wealthy women can't birth children which is a major stumbling block and deterrent to male gold digging."
Her words to the bastard were, "I'm not a bank Tommy, I'm not a bank." On this day in 1692 the Salem witch trials began. Bridget Bishop was hanged at Gallows Hill near Salem, Massachusetts, for "certain Detestable Arts called Witchcraft & Sorceries". Tom Burris should have been hung for being a creep. The chaise, chair and ottoman came in and all are beautiful. Quite different than the life of Karen Carpenter.
