It's almost like there are these periods where our relationship is smooth and steady, and then there are times when it's like standing on the edge of this gorgeous, wonderful waterfall and just letting yourself drop, knowing that there's a safe pool of water ready to catch you at bottom. You take the plunge and you're in wayyyy over your head, but oh man, it's exhilarating, it's breathtaking, it's just incredible and you feel better than you ever have before and the water is cool and refreshing and exactly what you needed.

Sam is my waterfall.

Lohan refers to Obama as `first colored president'

NEW YORK – Lindsay Lohan referred to President-elect Barack Obama as the country's "first colored president" in an interview on "Access Hollywood."

Describing her experience on Election Day, Lohan said: "It was really exciting. It's an amazing feeling. It's our first colored president."

A spokeswoman for Lohan didn't immediately return messages left Wednesday.

Interviewer Maria Menounos didn't question the 22-year-old actress on her use of the term. "Access Hollywood" also didn't cite her remark in its online story, but did post an "extended interview" video on its Web site that included the remark.

A spokesman for the syndicated entertainment news program said in a statement Wednesday: "We believe the word in question that Ms. Lohan used was unintelligible."

Lohan blogged about her support of Obama during the presidential campaign.

Now, what do I just LOVE about this story?

Get a load of the pic they chose to accompany it. The girlfriend in the background facepalming.

Borderline symptom of the day: indescribableindescribable

My graphic design teacher calls black people "people of color". Honestly though, he's old and grew up in the south. I can't really fault him for that when he is using in the context of them being good people. Especially when he is talking about how he spent his vacation in New Orleans putting their houses back together....

Actually, people of color is fairly PC. It's not an archaic term like "colored people". :)

I actually had a customer refer to one of my cashiers as a "coloured girl". Taken aback this phrase and mindset, I thought I was being ironic when I said, "what colour was she? Was she like a caramel?" To which the man replied, "Oh no: She wasn't the *dark* one you got there."

Gotta love Somerville. In the world of the Townies, even the "caramel-coloured" people are "dark".

Good Lord, people suck!

"People of color" is actually the "PC" term. It's "people first" language. Like how you don't say, "Disabled person," you'd say, "Person with a disability" in order to be PC.

She's like, "Oh no, Lindsay, you did NOT just say 'colored'."

The picture just says it all. LOL!

I always thought 'colored person' was such a nice term. But the baggage it comes with just screws it.

Facepalming? Is that the road version of headdesking?

Sure is. :)
