What's Weirder Than Weird?

So, Lance Bass is gay. As if we didn't see that one coming. The greatest part of him being "also gay" is that he's dating Reichen! From the Amazing Race! They've both come such a long way; what a journey to find one another.

I remember Lance from his early days of N'Sync - Bye, Bye, Bye. And Reichen - I cheered for you when you won the million on the Race. But back then, you were dating Chip. Actually, I think the two of you were married. See? I pay attention. *I* remember.

But even stranger than this whole Lance/Reichen/Gay thing is a conversation I had with my ma-in-law yesterday. My sister-in-law is taking her to see Tom Jones in Atlantic City this weekend.

I don't know what's weirder: that my sis-in-law provides the casino with such business that it's comping her the tickets or that there's a chance - a very very very slim chance - that the Norton duo could potentially throw their panties on the stage.

I do hope they have fun watching Sir Tom and his crazy moves.

Do you bring a pair with you or just remove the ones you are wearing to throw on the stage? I wonder what Tom prefers. :)

K - Oh God, of course I will. But man, it is a funny image.

Freckle Face Girl - Normally, women bring panties and put them in their pockets or pocketbooks. At some point in the evening, the ushers let the women go up to the stage and throw them. At my first Tom Jones concert (in Las Vegas), I carried a pair in my bag and threw them up. At subsequent concerts, I haven't thrown anything because according to my husband: "you have your *own* sexbomb."

In the past, Tom used to pick up the panties. Now he doesn't. He just sort of lets them 'hang out' on stage. But everyone in the crowd goes crazy when he does it.
