Okay. My Facebook friends know I have a thing for Ryan Gosling.
Gosling saving me from a speeding car.”
Now, she does not like being the “ditzy damsel in distress,” but said she was nearly hit and Gosling did what anyone would do, pulled her back.
Penny says she was distracted, thinking about an article she was in the midst of preparing to write and simply “didn’t
remember to look the right way. An actor happened to be passing and stopped me
from getting run over by a car. I said ‘thank you.’ And that was that. The actor
happened to be Ryan Gosling.”
Okay, I buy it. Actors walk the streets of New York City in a way they don’t in other regions of the country or the world. And, because Gosling has a reputation for breaking up fights and not just standing by when something is going down, he is getting this super human street cred.
Although “grateful to the dashing and meme-worthy Mr.
Gosling,” Penny admonishes everyone for being so interested in the star’s
The British journalist Penny released these words today:
“Americans are very strange. They can and do hyperventilate about the most
everyday happenings as if they are the most important thing in the world, and
then they act completely normal when public conversations are had about war on
Iran and war on women’s bodies and when Rick Santorum is considered a serious
presidential candidate. The real heroes I’ve met in America are risking
everything to make sure that the United States doesn’t slide further into
bigotry, inequality and violence whilst everyone is distracted by the everyday
doings of celebrities”.
She has a point. I wrote yesterday about the UN and the need to protect people from lives of being modern day slaves in a $2.4 billion human trafficking trade. Did that interest you?
Believe me, I enjoy the fun side of life just as much as the next person, but which story do you want to know about the most? Which story did you talk about with your friends? I am curious. I want to hear from you so I know what stories you want blogged about. This is all for you!
So, why Ryan Gosling, Saratoga?
