Ms. Britney Jean Spears turned 30 today. Mind-blowing, isn't it? Remember way back when? She wanted you to hit her one more time. She did it again. She was not a girl, yet not yet a woman (yet). And so on. Then the pink wig, and the paparazzi madness. Things seem to have calmed down. She seems content. Happy birthday, Brit: Hope that you, like any other mom of two who grew up in the spotlight and gyrated with a snake on TV, are gonna partake of champagne today. Also mind-blowing? It's December, you guys! Only 28 days left in the year. Better make the most of what we've got left! This here is your open thread. Take care of it. See you monday!
