America's Next Top Model and stuff


Here is a picture of my friend with her bridal shower bouquet - a very good friend. I had to take a picture of the bouquet because it just shows how much she is loved with all the bows and ribbons (and so many gifts from tons of far flung relatives and friends who couldn't attend but sent a package) and I am ever so happy for her. She truly deserves this happiness (I can't wait for the wedding, this fall!).

This past Sunday at Potomac Mills Mall (my local mall) they had auditions for America's Next Top Model. You know the reality fashion show. I have never gotten into this particular phenomenon but was asked to write about the event for the local paper (the paper I freelance with). I was expecting a bunch of divas at the try-outs but it was just a lot of nice young girls who wanted a big break. I think the hardest part of the whole thing was that the auditions were out in the open, so all the mall shoppers could view the event...and they were not spare or kind with the comments. Though I guess the argument is that these ladies will have to get use to negative comments; I just thought some of the "audience" were cruel.

Right, enough nattering - I'm off to Florida tomorrow morning, on Southwest no less. Crossing my fingers all goes well...

Ooh, little spambot got ya!

You hit on my major complaint about those reality shows. They can have contest iwthout ripping people to shreds. It's uncalled for. And the audience at teh mall was just indulging in an opportunity to be cruel.

Citizen - yes the mall audience was indulging in being cruel, and that is so sad. Why do people's natural instincts go to that, instead of being nice? Are we hard wired that way or trained?

Tony - wow, I didn't see it that way, but I guess I have grown and changed. Thanks for pointing that out, I guess Denmark was really a big turning mark for me. I am happy.

Mommantor - funny that now I'm in Florida and your back up in MD. too cute : )

Brenda - I'm having TONS of fun - thanks!
