A departure from my favorite topics
of food, my daughter, and skiing

For just a minute.

I have to confess that, in addition to enjoying the tabloid covers at the supermarket (except at the fancy one where I often shop, which eschews such garbage in the name of good taste), I occasionally indulge in a look at the website Socialite Life, especially on days like today when I'm slogging through an epic tome on the image of Jews as portrayed in Greek Literature in the Hellenistic period (it's so long I want to weep—surely nothing else will need to be published on the topic ever again). The authors of this website are wonderfully irreverent, and they actually write fairly well. But every once in a while I see something there that makes me very unhappy. Like this.

I have no idea who this young woman is (Heidi Somebody, and I think she's on or has been on some reality show), but I do know that FOR THE LOVE OF GOD SHE NEEDS TO GET HER ASS OUT OF THE AIR.

I mean, really. What on earth does she think she's doing? It's not like she got caught doing some necessary adjusting and someone snapped the picture. SHE IS POSING LIKE THIS. What goes through the mind of someone who does that? I want to know. No, I probably don't.

I don't care how good she looks in a bikini. She looks like an idiot with her butt in the air.

And that's all I have to say about that.

Heidi Spencer. From that silly MTV show, The Hills. MTV used to be so good when they just played music videos; when I started college in '02 they started to go crazy. That picture is very disturbing. (^_~).

Added you to my library! Thanks for the comment and stopping by!
