It’s true. Rug and Home gal Jamie Simpson, whom we’ve fawned over for some time now, has gone off and gotten hitched. Loyal reader BMac confirmed it for us by locating Simpson’s MySpace page and spotting pictures of Jamie at the altar with some curly headed freak.
Jamie, we loved you the best we knew how. We put up with your incessant cajoling with the rugs. We admired your unceasing optimism as you tried to sell us cars and God knows what else. We adored that football photo shoot you did for the Link – you in muscle shirts and clutching that damn football.
We’ve always been here for you, Jamie. And what did we get for it? You went off – over the holidays no less! – and got married to some fuzzhead. Dammit, Jamie. He’s not good enough for you.
Even though you’ve ignored us, we’re going to be the bigger person here. We’re going to take the high road and wish you health and happiness and all the best.
Just don’t ever, ever expect us to buy a frackin’ rug.
