Even Supermodels like Free Food


So after three glorious hours of season premieres yesterday (America's Next Top Model Cycle 12 and Make Me a Supermodel Season 2) I've decided who I will be rooting for in the coming weeks. First, Gabriel (picture above) from Supermodel is hot. Well, the kinda guy I find hot anyway - skinny and broody looking. The photo shoot of him in his skivvies was quite nice.

The girls from Top Model this cycle look like they're all recycled versions of girls from previous seasons. The only stand-out girl for me is Allison. Her eyes look like crazy anime eyes but any girl who finds bloody noses beautiful is good in my book.


And finally...


Get a free Kashi frozen dinner here! Kashi doesn't make the tastiest or most satisfying of the frozen meals I've tried, but you can't beat free. They're also a lot healthier.

Thanks to my co-worker Drew for pointing this out.

Take that, Girl Scouts!


Sorry for the lack of posts these past few months. Dating and watching Rupaul's Drag Race have taken over my life.

Thank this article for inspiring me to finally write a new post.

FINALLY! Someone is fighting back and trying to take down those horrible little girls and their evil thin mint evil..and so delicious. There are some real gems in the article. My favorite lines include "Beneath the cheer of the annual Girl Scout cookie sale in Bremerton smolders a flash of anger and betrayal" and "I'd call the cops, that's what I'd do - call the cops".

Here's the article below:

Fake money used to buy Girl Scout cookies

BREMERTON, Wash. - Someone is cheating Girl Scouts, using fake $20 bills to buy cookies.

One troop in Bremerton is out $100, and some fear the fraud is spreading to other Girl Scout troops.

Beneath the cheer of the annual Girl Scout cookie sale in Bremerton smolders a flash of anger and betrayal.

Seven-year-old Silvia Swanson helps collect the money that funds their programs.

"We get to go camping, the zoo, swimming pools," she said.

But the girls found out someone used fake $20 to buy cookies.

"That makes you feel really mad," said Swanson.

"It's just beyond me," said Deborah Bernard, customer. "I can't even imagine that. These are little girls."

Trooper leader KC Gettings made the discovery Saturday while making change.

"I went to the bank, right inside Safeway, and she told me two of the $20s were fake," said Gettings.

Gettings quickly left, returning with a counterfeit detecting pen. Its mark shows yellow on real U.S. currency, but the mark turns black on fake money. She discovered an additional $60 in fake bills.

That brought the total to $100 Troop 40411 may make up themselves. Two of the bills even had the same serial number. Troop 40411 isn't alone; others around Bremerton invested in the pen.

"Another troop has come to buy them because they noticed they were getting fake money," said Gettings. She said they're being told to stop accepting $20 bills unless they use the pen.

But who is passing the fake money is still a mystery. Silvia Swanson knows what she'd do if they try again.

"I'd call the cops, that's what I'd do - call the cops," said Swanson.

Troop leader Gettings tried to report the crime, but the local police station is closed on weekends. She planned to file a report on Monday.

In true Girl Scout fashion, the troop is learning from the ordeal. Each member will earn a "fraud badge" because they helped uncover the crime. They've be back out, with counterfeit detecting pen in hand, next weekend.
