Ripped From the Headlines

I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that it’s every boy’s dream to one day end up in the society pages. To be included with those regal personages oozing glitz and glamour, to be privy, nay included in a world most rarely see let alone travel. A culture above such pedantic creations like paninis and the Oxygen network, where barons and celebrities co-mingle, raising funds for children and other ailments of society, or just blowing off steam after a hard day of sailing. These are the important people, the beautiful people, all festooned with baubles and smelling of brandy and expensive woods. You think, “If only some day I could have this sort of impact on the world. To have the money, the power, the influence to affect change – to be noticed and truly appreciated. Yes, if my moment ever arrives, I will be ready. I will embrace it, and I will let the world know that I, Daniel Murphy, grew up to be somebody.”

Are these from that non-sex-party you guys got creeped out at and ran away from?

Since you're obviously in the know, can you tell me what the hell one is supposed to do with those shrimp tails? I think I ate one once because my default etiquette setting is HIDE THE EVIDENCE.

And where did this "surf sampling" take place?

I hope you did not gore anybody with that skewer.

But if you did you could have scored TWO sections of the paper.

Something to think about.

Well now you're going to have stalkers. You should probably start thinking about a security plan - dogs, fences, stuff like that.

I am going to go rub some wood all over my body right now because although I never thought of it till your blog post, rich society page people do have a thing for extravagant wood....They dont just use carpet or even pergo they like stuff such as "cherry wood" and "Mahogany"

And I am not talking about the other type of "wood Rubbing"

I like how everyone else is smiling for the camera and you're all "surf right into my mouth!"

Long time listener...er...reader, first time commenter. Now that you're on the society page I thought I'd say hey. I didn't realize that you were a celeb outside of this world but I've been ignorant about...stuff...before (I'm sure, at least).

Hey!

Enjoy the blog!

Whoa. Nice hat, Brooke. You have both style and panache.

Yeah, you look fine, too, Dan. Nice job keeping it together long enough for the photographer to snap the photo.

So,...you sampled the surf, huh? Alright.

Are you sure you were *serving* the shrimp at the party?

So how pissed off was Brooke that they cut her off in the photo? I would have been spitting.

Next step, Dan's Papers. (You just have to move back to NY.)

Why does Brooke (or her arm) look tan and Dan looks pasty? Was that one trip to NYC enough?

Is this anything like Navin Johnson getting his name in the phonebook in The Jerk?

I feel like Brooke is like Wilson from Home Improvement. She's always just slightly obstructed in every shot.
