God Bless the USA

So, Tim and I watched a few minutes of the Miss USA pageant last night. I couldn't take it anymore when one of the ladies strutted across in her bathing suit and faux fur and racked up a disgraceful 7.64 in the compilation score that pops up in the corner of the screen. 7.64!!! Granted -you choose to submit yourself to the scrutiny of the judges and millions of audience/TV viewers when you go into the pageant system; but what bothered me was the thought that this girl is likely to watch video of the pageant and will see herself get the lowest swimsuit score (from what I saw) and then frantically start nipping, tucking, or sucking things to fix whatever blaring flaws the judges saw. Flaws that do not actually exist. SAD. Very sad -but not the point of the post. Just a side note -no charge! =)

This was the funny exchange I wanted to tell you about. Tim spent his first year of college in Anderson, Indiana. Last night when they introduced one of the contestants as Daisy Doodah from Anderson, Indiana I was like "hey Tim,did you hear that?" He said, "yeah, I don't know how I missed her up there." I started chuckling and responded with, "Uh, well, it could have been because she was only 12 when you were there." He was shaking his head and telling me to shut up before I could even get the whole sentence out. Oh, it still makes me giggle. Who knew getting old would be so much fun.

Angela is 6 1/2 years younger and loves to play the "wow, my husband is old game" we'll throw out a date and I'll say I had just graduated from college to which she replies - oh I was just starting high school....FUN STUFF! :)

Frank -you should gently remind her that certain owners of a certain blog that a certain person likes to be updated on are the same age as that certain person's husband. Watch it now, little girl! ;-)
