October 24, 2006
I saw an interesting TV show the other day. It was called “Make Me A Supermodel” or “Britain’s Next Supermodel” or “Ain’t I Got A Pretty Face” or something along those lines and I was shocked. Shocked to the core. It wasn’t because of the so called “challenges”; lads – put on some blue eyeshadow; ladies – lie on a pile of frozen fish. But because they all looked so strange. There were two, that everytime they smiled I got this strange urge to go and play the piano, no idea why…
Surely the original idea of a supermodel is someone so ethereal and stunning that you want to just stand there… looking… and… just… wow… oh yeah, remember to breathe too. Do they all really qualify? And these are the ones that have made it past the elimination rounds. Strange.
In unrelated news I taught a giant gingerbread man and peter pan the beauty of the suffix “-to-the-face”. And a lumberjack (not gay) the joyousness of the word “Wench”. Ah good times, good times. :)
Edit: In making this post I briefly had to save it and in the interest of haste, mashed out a temporary entry title, not knowing it would be permanent. It amuses me to notice that even after subsequently changing the title, my only ever hot topic post will go down in history as having a title that resembles the word “gayer”. Great. Cruel fate giveth, and cruel fate taketh away…
