random thoughts, and a confession

First, I will confess...

I was a "Blockhead". In their heyday, I was a HUGE New Kids on the Block fan: posters, cassette tapes, buttons, concerts, countless hours watching and re-watching music videos. You may or may not know this, but NKOTB has reunited! They have a forthcoming CD, and a fall tour scheduled (the Toronto show at the ACC is already sold out!).

Yesterday, they appeared on the Today show, and performed as a part of the Today Show Summer Concert series. I watched video of the appearance, and sang along...just like all the other thirty-somethings in the crowd of thousands...and Jason.

What a well-timed comeback. And yes, I will probably download the new CD when it comes out.

And now for my random thought -

I suppose that this random thought starts as a confession - I watch America's Next Top Model. I can't say that I have seen every season, but once I start a season, I don't stop. I'm not a fan of Tyra Banks, I'm not a reality television junkie, and I'm not a fan of high fashion. I watch it for the "art" - the make-up, the wardrobe, the sets. Ok, and yes, I do like to watch the contestants interact.

This season, for the first time ever, a full-figured woman won the crown of America's Next Top Model.

I'm going to get right to my point. Whitney, the winner, wears between a size 10 and size 12. That is below the national average(size 14)! So should we be happy that a "full-figured" (formerly know as "plus" size, and currently known on the street as "juicy") woman won - or should we be angry that the "defining" size of "a juicy, plus, full-figured" woman has decreased!?

Why couldn't it have been as simple as the best woman won?
