"In Italy, for 30 years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland, they had brotherly love, they had 500 years of democracy and peace — and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." - Orson Welles
The fear that I would have to fake love for my children, and that the moment I could stop faking would never come, is just one of the many many MANY reasons why I’m so glad I’ll never have kids.

"Not every career move is remembered so fondly. On the topic of Chaotic, the 2005 documentary that granted unprecedented access to her marriage to Federline, she says: “I would never do something like that again.” She purses her lips. It looks as if this is the first time she’s considered Chaotic in many years. “Actually, that was really bad,” she decides. “That was probably the worst thing I’ve done in my career.”
When I ask if that includes Crossroads – her not-exactly-Oscar-winning 2002 film – she looks suddenly outraged and clutches her hand to her heart. “No!” she shouts, springing to life. “I like Crossroads! F— you!”
And then, to my relief, she laughs.”

That being said, I’m using the Phoenix as an excuse anytime I have poor impulse control issues.
GRAPHIC: The top image is Barbara as Batgirl, pondering her chances at election. The rest depict her as a congresswoman.
Barbara: Don’t kid yourselves, boys! I’m a tough campaigner, just like my old man - and corny as it sounds, I was elected by the people! I’ll fight you on this - and I’ll win!
No use in masquerading any longer, Dad! Because I want to run want to run for Congress in your place! You admitted you don’t want the job! And it’s the only way I can really fight crime - prevent it - through prison reform! Legislation - law that creates order, not disorder!
