Delusion is a disease

I found a Dr. Pepper in the bottom of my desk drawer yesterday. I just opened my drawer and there it was. So I drank it. I feel this doesn't count as cheating on my no Dr. Pepper kick since I didn't actively seek it out. In a way, it sort of sought me out if you really think about it.

For that matter, I like to think that just the fact that the can was in the drawer was a sign that I was meant to drink it. Or maybe I've just been watching too much Big Brother lately. One of the girls on that show takes everything as a sign. And she cries a lot. My favorite though has to be that she thinks she should be on America's Next Top Model. My friend and I were discussing that just the other day. We can't decide if Amber's deluded or if she's just never seen America's Next Top Model. Maybe she doesn't understand the criteria to get on that show. Waif thin and stunning being the two primary considerations. It doesn't hurt to be overly dramatic too but I figure Amber's got that covered with all the crying. But the waif thin and stunning not so much.

But then another girl on the show, Jameka, went and totally agreed with her. I thought maybe Jameka was just being nice. You know how your friend says, I need to win the lottery. And then you say, You should buy a ticket. You could win. But what you really mean is, Good luck. Because you don't honestly think she'll win. Because, reality check, as if. But you still want to be positive and encouraging.

See, I thought maybe Jameka was doing that. Except then she went on about how she could see Amber on the cover of magazines and starting a whole modeling career. Um. Yeah. When did "deluded" become a contagious disease?

I'm not saying chick's ugly or anything. She's a cute average looking, average sized girl. But she's not America's Next Top Model material. Neither am I. You don't see me all broken up in a corner about it. It happens. But what's up her so called friend puffing her ego up all out of proportion. Friends don't let friends go down to the America's Next Top Model tryouts to get ripped to shreds in a bikini.

I think you're in Survivor withdrawals - don't worry... not much longer now : )

Not even joking, I probably am! The new season of Survivor starts September 20th though. Just saw a preview last night and feeling pretty pumped about it today.

Oh Amber, I almost feel sorry for her. Then she starts to cry and kiss her necklace and the moment is gone! I can't wait for Survivor either, and the next season of Top model too :)

I'm excited to see what they're going to do with China - the scenery shots so far look AMAZING! (I miss Boston Legal too...)

She's cute but no model. I kept thinking, "I sure hope my friends would tell me the truth.."

I'm glad she got the boot. Perhaps Kleneex will recruite her for their next campaign?

christy - Funny! My favorite was after Jen left and everyone was happy she left and Danielle jokingly asked Amber if she was going to cry seeing as how she cries over everything else.

micropro - Just hearing the Survivor music on the preview the other night got me excited.

shannanb - Yes! Friends should keep it real for you. Like I'd be pissed if I was one of those American Idol contestants that got ridiculed and my friends had been telling me for years how awesome I was. And I think you're on to something with the Kleenex idea.

Couldn't agree with you more. But I fear that if I start poking fun at either Amber or Jameka, I'll go to hell. Do you think God wants Jameka to win?
And halleuiah, amen that Amber is gone.

My husband said the same thing about making fun of Amber and Jameka! I didn't let it stop me though. And yesterday I had a vision that Jameka will get voted out so that means it will totally happen.

I honestly don't think g-d cares who wins Big Brother, but if he did, he probably would want that person to be able to define superficial and scrutinize! Love your blog!

Thanks! And no joke. She's not the brightest bulb in the pack. Although I kinda miss watching her cry over everything. Although Eric kinda picked up the crying slack for awhile before he left last night.
