I don’t pay much heed to who’s dating who in celebrity-land. But when it comes to Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo, and their just-terminated romance, I have to point out the following circumstances:

A source close to Simpson confirms they broke up the night before her 29th birthday July 10. She was supposed to celebrate with a Ken and Barbie-themed party. (On Simpson’s birthday, Romo spent the night at Los Angeles hot spot My House.)

“She canceled her party because of this,” the source tells [Usmagazine.com]. “She’s doing OK.”

“Barbie party didn’t happen, but I turned 29 and feel like I am on top of the world yelling I LOVE GETTING OLDER!” she wrote on her Twitter page Saturday.

A Barbie party? Seriously? Aren’t those strictly for 8-year-olds? I’m thinking 29 is extremely long in the tooth for anyone, even a pop princess like Simpson, to be playing-acting with plastic dolls. And if I had to guess, that displayed behavior is what prompted Romo to turn tail and run.

Based on this, I’d say that Simpson is sure to go for a Disney Bridal selection if/when she ever gets hitched. Thematically in line with the fantasy-romance blend.

Amid all the interactive game experiments like 140 Mafia and SpyMaster that are infiltrating Twitter, I have a feeling that less-sexy collaborative gameplay like that of ChessTweets is going to have more staying power on the platform. The majority-rules voting on every individual move, that’s supposed to cook up a grandmaster-like playing strategy, seems to strike the right balance between casual gaming and community involvement.

Too bad chess ain’t my kinda game. And sadly enough, there doesn’t seem to be a parallel @CheckersTweets experiment going on.
