Water for the Elephant Flu

Gesundheit! Okay raise of hands, how many people still go to work when they are sick? Many. And some say it's because they cannot afford to take a day off work. A new poll shows that most Americans support proposed legislation requiring companies to offer at least seven days of paid sick leave. It was found that 55 percent of respondents said they were not eligible for paid sick days and had at some point gone to work with a contagious illness like the flu or a viral infection. Twenty-four percent of those who did not receive paid sick days said they had sent a sick child to school or day care because they had to go to work. I am definitely for legislation that allows people and their children, to stay home when they are sick.


Well apparently Rob Pattinson, although a day wouldn't likely put a dent into his million dollar account, doesn't like to skip a day either.


Take a look at this clip from CelebTV as they discuss how actress Reese Witherspoon did not show the love of "Rob slobber"

Saying that we will never look at him the same is a bit of added drama on their behalf no doubt. I mean, most of us women do carry kleenex in our purses just for these moments. You never know when the good looking Robster is going to come up to you and..and... HaaaaChoooooo! Blow snot in your face. And no doubt some "Team Edward" wannabe (not that there's anything wrong with that), will be bottling it up to pay homage later to the mighty snot god. Hmmm.. psst, I smell a missed opportunity here Ms.Witherspoon. Surely Ebay has a market for Rob snot. I know, disgusting. I guess some actors  are just going to have to endure the valley of saliva, kiss a snot filled Rob or what have you, to get that hefty paycheck. Poor dears.

In all seriousness, both actors did an great job. If Rob was sick during those scenes then they both should win an oscar for their performances, because you could not tell.

And in case you missed the movie that is based on the incredible book by Sara Gruen here's a peek:
