I used to have a teeny girl crush on Taylor Swift. I never really liked her music, but thought she seemed nice when she went on the Ellen show.
But now that Ms. Swift has exploded, with pieces of hair and shrapnel falling everywhere, I must back away.
I realize that she has a new album out and that promotion is all important, but come on!
In my Target flyer on Sunday I found half a page dedicated to Taylor Swift items. No thank you, I don't want Taylor Swift body lotion, mascara, or headphones.
Then I saw the big sign in front of Walgreens advertising: Taylor Swift items are here! I was afraid to go into the store, for fear I get swallowed into the Taylor Swift vortex of mind numbing pop.
But I did go online to see what was available..there's a Taylor Swift blanket I could snuggle up with on a cold winter night, a variety of rubber bracelets, tour books, and even a Taylor Swift iPhone sound amplifier (so I can let all my friends hear all her songs loud and clear, I presume).
The one thing I didn't see offered for sale? A Taylor Swift Slow Cooker.
(Think about it.)
