Another tid bit:
Somewhere around Diversey and Lincoln it smelled like sweet tarts. Ummmmm.
PS. I just went for a bike ride and didn't say anything bad about the city. In fact, I said 2 good things.
I have a confession to make: I love America’s Next Top Model. This season is not as exciting as the previous seasons, but I watch it nevertheless. I don’t know what I like about it. I usually cannot stand cattiness, insecurities, and girls that make me feel short and fat, but there’s something about this show that I can’t put my finger on. I think it may have to do with exactly what I just said I can’t stand. In short, these girls kind of make me feel good about myself. I have never been able to identify with any of the girls on the show, and that separation makes me feel good about myself. Sure I may be short (5’1/4” to be exact) and chunky (I’m not getting exact here), but I am healthy, smart, and have my head in the right place. And at least I know my boyfriend doesn’t love me because I look like a model! Ok, enough self-deprecation hidden behind confidence. The fact is I love the show for whatever reason. There is always the bitchy overconfident egotistical girl (this season that’s Jade) and the girl who is incredibly insecure (that would be Gina). So of course Jade plays off Gina’s insecurities and quite frankly her naïveté and brainlessness. For real Paris Hilton is a genius compared to this girl. The seasons always go like this: the first third of the season the bitchy girl pisses everyone off and makes the insecure girl’s life hell. This finally eats away at the insecure girl and she gets kicked off. Then in the second third of the show the bitchy girl gets called out by Tyra, her insecurities are revealed, she takes a 180, and everyone is BFF. In the third third of the show the girls start to realize that this really is a competition and catty friendship, which women are really so very good at, gets played out. Last night Gina got kicked off, so we are officially entering the second third of the show. I can’t wait until Tyra calls out Jade!
I may have some good news on the job front. I’ll let you know more when I do.
