OK I'm Giving It Up

I'm coming forth with this information at great personal risk, but it's important to me because it illustrates a point that I've been trying to make for a long time.

A little background, really quick:
I've been on disability for 6 months due to a number of concurrent injuries. I say that because I have been waiting for a long time to use the word "concurrent" in an entry. It just makes me feel smart for the day.
Anyway, during that time, I enlisted the aid of my Platinum Cable package to help entertain me. 3129007787632 channels. Yayyy. I have watched every movie ever filmed. Then I resorted to network shows for 8 or 10 minutes. Daytime TV has got to be on the list of major causes of suicide in this country, but I'll get back to you on that.

So, in my search for some entertainment, I found a couple of sitcoms that I've grown to enjoy. And, yes, I found them on the Lifetime Channel. Yes. The Lifetime Channel.



The shows are: "Still Standing" and "Reba". I'm sure they're all repeats, (I think "Reba" is still on the air somewhere else)

The reason I brought them up is that they both have stars who represent what I consider to be "beautiful women". With all the talk about "real beauty" that's been going on, I think three of these women fit that bill, and I won't get yelled at for liking them.

From Reba:

Joanna Garcia

She's 26, and from Tampa, FL originally. She has a beautiful face and smile, but she has a SHAPE! There are curves (and if you watch the show, you'll get a better idea than this one picture I found can show). She plays a new mother, and actually looks like her body might have given birth!
Ms Garcia probably wouldn't be flattered by this, but she looks like a woman, not a toothpick. Nice to see a face with some cheeks, too.

Also from Reba:

Reba McEntire

This is a pretty good representation of what I consider to be "real" pretty. She's got a beautiful smile, and once again, you can see her from all sides. I was always a big fan of her eyes. She looks like she could be beautiful in her blue jeans or an evening gown. Or sweats. Yayyy.

Then from the other show, "Still Standing", is another favorite of mine:

Jami Gertz

She's so great. She actually makes me laugh, too. Has some comedic talent worth noticing. But, at the risk of being repetitive, she's not likely to be hiding behind any drinking straws any time soon. She fills out her jeans nicely, and is occasionally seen in sweats.
So don't hate me because I think they're beautiful. Just watch the shows. See what I mean.
Now tell me who you like. See if you can rationalize as good as I can.

    With men like you, soon, the anorexic look will be unfashionable as it should be!


  2. It was a scary moment for me when I found myself actually liking something on the Lifetime Channel. I imagine it was even more so for a man. As for your taste in women, knockouts, each and every one of them.

  3. I love the Lifetime Channel.. but then of course, I'm a female, and that's a so called 'woman's' channel. It's nice to know that there are still some men out there that appreciate a woman with curves. I love Reba, and I've always thought Jamie Gertz was a real cutie.
    Don't give up, Jimmy! :)

  4. LMAO!

    I mean Reba? jimmy?
    hee hee, I love Jami Gertz always have....there is some quality tv out there, just have to stop and watch...



I love comments. I won't lie about that!
