You don’t have Cruise control?

Boss! You’re not gonna believe who I just got a picture of today! I was just pointing my camera lens at a vineyard in southwestern France, and GUESS who showed up?

cruise combo 160I’m going to take a wild guess. Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz?

Right! But what are the chances?

This month? About 100 percent. Just try taking a picture without them while they’re promoting their new movie.

You mean we’ve had other shots of them already?

Only from Munich and London and Mexico City and Seville and Rio de Janeiro, so far.

Yikes, that sounds like a lot of free publicity. What’s the name of their movie, anyway?

I can’t remember.

You think this is it, or will we be doing more to help them promote their film?

We’ll have to wait and see. They’ve asked to pose at my nephew’s fourth birthday party tomorrow in Lubbock, but it just depends on how long the face-painter takes.

I thought Cruise Control involved couch restraints.

I love vineyards and walking in them. This reminds me, I need to work on my seedless grapes this weekend.

Seeing Cameron Diaz reminds you of seedless grapes, Doc? We need to talk.

I’m low on vitamins, Bob. I know Katie Holmes’s father and brother. They’re lawyers. I wonder if they do divorce work.

It looks like he has some curly poodle hair cut in the bottom photo.

Okay, question.

According to the interwebs, Cameron Diaz is about 5’9″ tall and Tom Cruise is 5’7″.

How is it that they look the same height in all these pictures or, if anything, Tom is a little taller?

This calls for a legitimate shoe shot.
