Okay, I'm so fucking unashamedly excited about the new season (or "cycle") of "America's Next Top Model".
But let's go meta for a second: Mena & I were talking this morning on the way to work about how much we love the show, and I said I was going to write a post about it. And she was like, just don't start it with a bunch of exclamation points and "How much do I fucking love America's Next Top Model!!!"
And I said, well, what if I include this conversation as a sort of disclaimer re: my masculinity? 
I said it sounded like a footnote, but she said it should be front & center in the post.
And so there we had an agreement on my post about ANTM.
But anyway: wow. What a show!
My very early-on favorite notes:
- I really like Kim, but I don't think she'll last that long. Call me crazy, but that walk just won't cut it.
- Makeovers! 
- This week's episode hit home with me, because I have a recurring nightmare where James St. James is chasing me down the street with a bullhorn. 
- Yay, they destroyed Cassandra! I liked it when she was crying about her hair getting cut: so good! And then someone was like, "No more beauty pageants" in the background, while they were cutting her hair. That was funny.
- Big D! This video is awesome, particularly the part at the end with J. playing all like a gangsta, & doing a strangely convincing job of it.
If I had to vote for a winner today, I'd vote for Lisa. Though I'm not sure about the blonde hair.
 And, you know, if I also drank a beer or something while watching the show. Which I did!
 I have a really, really awful confession to make, one that I'm actually embarrassed about: I used to watch TLC's A Makeover Story every day with Mena about 4 years ago. Every. Single. Day.
Now, I can't even watch that show, because the makeovers are just so bad, relatively.
 Well, not really, but that was scary, wasn't it? I kept thinking about that Simpsons episode where Homer makes the clown bed in Bart's room. "Can't sleep, clown'll eat me..."
