Is that what I think it is?

I was procrastinating writing my paper and thus found myself on the big yellow couch with a nice wine and Grey's Anatomy. Then I saw this:

Um, what the hell is that? Is that...? Could it be...? Would they show that on public television? Seriously, what else could it be? Where the heck were the ABC censors on that day? America gets up in arms about Janet Jackson's funky boob at the Superbowl, but seeing THAT is okay? I'm just saying.

Later in the show Meredith is taking her shirt off for Dr. McDreamy, but they show nothing. So a woman producing a show protects the skin of a woman and exposes the danglies of a man. Fascinating.

My Words of Wisdom. 4.12.07

Scrubs said goodbye to one of its own in its typical fashion; heavy on the humor with a dash of seriousness and a pinch of sadness.

What made me think, however, was the relationship between Eliot and pretty doctor boy. (Keith? Kevin?) I think it is Keith, so that's what we will call him. I hope that is right, so as not to confuse. Eliot has been busting her hump (her lovely lady lumps) to be the "cool" girlfriend. So when Keith tells her he is heading off to Las Vegas to do things that don't leave Vegas with his buddies over their first anniversary, she says cool.

Now, every other guy in the place wishes their girlfriend would be that way, and let them get away with murder. Keith's reaction? He wants to break up with her.

I have noticed something with men. When girls want to be with them, they are stand-offish and when girls are indifferent, they begin to cling. (Maybe everyone is like that.) Would Keith want to be a great boyfriend to Eliot had she not spent the first year of their relationship being apathetic to him as a mate? Is this a demonstration of how to make a guy want to be in a relationship?

The reasoning behind Eliot's behavior was that she was hurt so many times by men that she did not want to put herself in that position again. Is that wall appealing? Where lies the middle ground that allows for two people to happily be together without giving up everything, and also without the walls for protection?

I will leave you with my favorite line from the show spoken by the Pastor at the funeral.

"I love you and there is nothing you can do about it."

The Girl Who Impresses Pedro

Last week, which I did not write about, had Renee crying because all the girls hate her. All it showed me was these girls are so YOUNG. But Renee has turned a new leaf and is making an effort to be nice and likeable. I guess that is great for her housemates, but sucks for us ANTM watchers. I predict she will be a raging bitch again before too long.

I cannot believe that three of those girls are moms! And them kids is cute! What the hell kind of name is Ta'Kya? Wholahay is a better name than that. I don't even know how to say it. Tah-key-ah? Tah-kai-ah? Tah-kyay? Hmph. Maybe it is just a weird spelling of Jen.

This week the girls acted for us. I don't think we need to fear any of them pulling a Jennifer Hudson. (Though I still don't get that award.) I think Whitelle (Whitney) got into a fist fight with Pedro on stage. She had two black eyes. But in the end it was Renee who won the acting challenge and she chose Dionne to be her mate. They got t-shirts, those lucky bitches. But Renee, with her new sunny disposition, was ecstatic. And then we got to see babies! Aw, cute little babies. Troy is soo adorable. But man, seeing Renee and her husband made me think of a Maury Povitch show I saw once about these pre-teens who wanted to get married and have kids right away. Whoa.

They finally killed that squirrel roosting on Brittany's head. What the heck were they thinking with that thing? Her hair never looked good. She looked much cuter once they killed it. I don't think she is very pretty, though. She looks like a girl who would have been depicted in soap ads in the early 20th century. But I feel for her and her nappy ole weave. Imagine having a ponytail where one strand of hair is pinching. That hurts! Multiply that so it is all over your head and you can't loosen the pinch. Bah!

The photo shoot brought in girls from past cycles. It was fun to see them again, but none of them seemed to be too impressive. Even Joanie, who was my favorite, let me down. She has this weird smile which I am sure comes from years of hiding her snaggletooth. But the most random shoot was with Jael. She is an odd cat. She is ugly and speaks weird, and is generally unpleasant. But she takes wicked good pictures. Not this time, though.

Dionne had a photo with Kim, the lesbian. She was nervous because apparently she is not a kisser. I quote her saying "I don't even kiss my boyfriend". Is she a hooker?

In the end, Jael tried to fool us with a prim milk maid dress. But I saw right through her. Tyra intimidated like animals in the wild do, by showing us her massive thighs that she could crush us with. (No more short skirts, PLEASE).

Bye Whitelle! Go finish your Ivy League degree from my dream school. (Jealous)

24 - Season 6

I have spent an inordinate amount of time catching up on the first 5 seasons of 24 so that I could watch the new episodes of season 6 which have been heavily populating my DVR since January. I have about 6 hours under my belt now. Some things I have noticed about the new season are:
  • Jack looks gooood. I like that shirt that makes his shoulders, chest and belly look yumm-o. That time in a Chinese prison did him good! Even if his hand looks like it was attacked by the Ebola virus.
  • They have cast a ton of shorties. I guess Kiefer got tired of men like Dennis Haysbert (6'4 1/2") and D.B. Woodside (6'3") towering over his 5'11" frame. So in came Peter MacNicol (5'8") I think he looks like he could be older, teenier brother of Will Ferrell. and Chad Lowe (5'8 1/2"). What is it with the Lowe brothers and their political roles?

Really, I don't have much to say. Marilyn looks like Snow White and are they ever going to address the fact that Josh (Jack's nephew) looks JUST LIKE Kim? Who is the real father? And more importantly, thanks to Paul McCrane (listed at 5'8", which I don't believe because I am 5'5" and was just as tall as him), I only 1 degree away from Kiefer Sutherland. Yeah!
