Ravelry CAL Afghan 2

Ravelry CAL Afghan 2: I've managed to get caught up on this afghan now with 2 January 'Dreamcatcher' blocks, 2 February 'Cross My Heart' blocks and 2 March 'Cygnus' blocks all completed.

At the rate this is going, it will probably take the rest of March and all of April as well to get caught up on these blocks for all seven afghans.

I sure do like the way they're all turning out, though. And I like seeing the stack of blocks grow.

Big Brother 9: James' obsession with and vengeance on people not keeping their word is an interesting double standard since he didn't keep his word not to put Matt and Natalie up for eviction when he was previously HoH. I'm sure his reasons for not keeping his word are justifiable and honorable, though, as compared to others.

America's Next Top Model: After watching this show for a couple of seasons, I'm convinced that anyone can be a (print) model because the makeup job they do on these girls for photo shoots is so transforming. The makeup artists can actually make unattractive girls look at least striking, if not actually attractive. On the other hand, runway modeling appears to require some skill, and it's really obvious when the girl is lacking that skill. For instance, that Fatima's walk was really strange looking, like she was uncomfortable in her own skin and bones.

I want to talk about something that is not unique to this show, but is very prevalent on this show--the screaming! What on earth is that about? Everything that happens, the girls scream. Someone is introduced, the girls scream. TyraMail shows up, the girls scream. A taxi or limo shows up, the girls scream. Any kind of announcement is made, the girls scream. It's so unladylike.

This is also very prevalent on The Bachelor. I can't imagine any man finding all that screaming over every little thing attractive.

When did this whole screaming thing get started? I mean, I remember girls in the audience screaming when Elvis or the The Beatles were on stage, but that was a pretty big deal. This screaming over the pouring of champagne or a date invitation arriving or any number of other trivialities is a relatively new phenomenon, though. And it's very irritating, especially when grown women are doing it.

Snow!: Yesterday we woke up to everything being covered in snow. It was quite an unexpected sight this far into March.

By the time I got around to taking pictures, it was close to noon, so a lot had melted off by that time. Still enough left to take pictures of, though.
