HOOKED

I find myself going through cycles when it comes to my TV watching. I always watch The Amazing Race and Grey's Anatomy. I will turn on HGTV and Food Network but randomly watch. The other night, I just happened on America's Top Model. Shockingly, this was new programing to me and sat open mouth for the full hour. This segment was the segment that they eliminated down to 13 models. But it really was not the first show, but a marathon of past competitions. After sitting until 1 am, I finally hit the record on the VCR (sorry no TiVo or DVR here) and went to bed. Yesterday my day did not afford me the time to continue watching the taped stuff, but after 10pm I hit the play button and stayed up until 2am- watch. After doing the Mesa entertainment thing at the dog park, I finally got to finish 3 more hours to see the outcome. This whole modeling world is so foreign to me, yet so fascinating. As each model was instructed, I found myself smiling, or gazing or tipping my head as instructed. I have now learned how to smile thru my eyes not using my mouth, how to pose differently for a woman's, man's or kids magazine as well as other fine model moves. I am now sitting here with my back straight, my head held high, with my shoulders back- just like Tyra Banks would appreciate.

Wow! I didn't realize that show was so educational. Sounds like you gleaned a lot from it!

You are cracking me up! I get that way with Dancing with the Stars. Maybe it is our inner selves just wanting to come out.

Reposting to correct spelling. You know, I have an English degree from UCLA. You'd think that would help. Sadly, no. *sigh*

Anyhoo, I'm hooked on Project Runway and I am soooo not into fashion. Or reality shows. So I hear you on this.

*shrug* No accounting for what will grab us huh?

Merry new year and all that.

Blessings,

Janice
