Some Friday Nonsense

It never really went with her ensemble anyway:

As of five minutes after midnight on Thursday, Martha Stewart is a free woman. Her house arrest officially ended with the dawning of Sept. 1, meaning she's snipped the tracking bracelet off her ankle with scissors and probably wrapped it -- tastefully -- to hand it over to authorities sometime later in the day. So ends what Stewart has called a "hideous" confinement, which kept her pent up on her 153-acre Westchester estate for all but 48 hours a week. A federal probation officer in New York said all offenders are allowed to take the tracking devices off themselves once house arrest is over. "We advise the offender in advance that unless they otherwise hear from us, at 12:01 a.m., they can cut the bracelet off -- it's just a rubber band," he said, and then, "all monitoring will cease."
