Why Tom Cruise is Insane

Okay, I'm going to overlook the fact that Tom Cruise has stated that depression doesn't exist. It probably never has for him so how could he possibly understand a difficult or even mundane life. The biggest stress he's had was figuring out how to creatively dump Nicole Kidman before the ten years was up on their marriage and he had to give her HALF. (gasp)

But has anyone considered that this man is professing a lifestyle choice (or religion, as some may consider it) that follows the teachings of a science fiction writer who founded his "church" to get out of paying taxes?

Okay, so I'm an accountant and maybe I'll even give on that one - at least on Hubbard's part, but why all the support for a ridiculous cult?

So, given the current state of mentality in this country, I have decided to form my own "theory" of life and the universe. It will be not-for-profit (of course) and all of my future earnings will flow through there for tax purposes. In the keeping of the new age spin on things and an old school southern philosophy, I've decided to call it -

Aromatoglogy - and the philosophy will be "If it stinks, it's probably crap."

I will be taking donations (scented candles preferred, although chocolate is always welcome) at National in Reno. I'll be the one frantically reviewing the Uniform Tax Code and wearing a clothespin on my nose.

Hey Jana, nice blog. Nice topic too. I have a poll up at my blog that asks the question you answered :-) : What's up with Tom Cruise?

Personally, I think the guy's crazy. I used to like him--not love him, but like him--but ever since I saw him in "Mission Implausible", I've started to lose respect...and then when he dumped Nicole. Puh-leese.

Take care and congrats on the house too!

Hi Colleen! I responded to your poll on Tom Cruise. I think my answer was the number 1 at the time. I need to go back and check again. I think the next questions needs to be "what mental illness does Katie Holmes need medicine for" but then I guess Tom wouldn't allow that, right, since there's no mental illness and all......

LOL! Jana, I was thinking about my follow-up's gonna have to be something about Katie Holmes, that's for sure!

I went back and changed the answers on my poll, so I'm thinking you'll like the last one best. :-)

I'm adding a link to your blog from mine!

I went back and read the transcript with Matt Lauer and while Cruise admits there's such a thing as PPD, he's got no solutions. What was Shields supposed to do? Suffer through it as penance for original sin or something? What a jerk.

Anyway, spotted your link at eHq and figured I'd stop in. Nice blog!

Hmmmmm, Sela, I'm thinking the only solution that's 100% is the one I'm exercising - don't have kids????? lol
