Random Thoughts Friday

  • Why are there so many big dogs in DC, a city with so much small-space housing? Ok, maybe these people I see walking sheep dogs and greyhounds live in townhouses with backyards, but I doubt it. In fact, I've seen plenty of people coming out of buildings with units that I know for a fact are no more than 400 sq. ft. That's just animal cruelty.
  • What was up with that crazy green 70's disco outfit Padma was wearing on this week's Top Chef? I'm almost sure there was a bit of cameltoe going on.
  • Is it just me or is Project Runway boring as hell this season? Would it have been better on Bravo? Maybe, but there's no room with all the stupid Housewives. And more importantly, why does a 36 year old celebrity woman with several kids, who has been married for years, need to change her last name?
  • Do single people in DC actually participate in Things To Do activities and do the Things To Do people ever find more men to participate in their singles events?
  • Can someone please give Hillary Clinton a makeover? Rachel Zoe, where are you? I just can't take another putrid-colored pantsuit.
  • Uh, no Barbara Walters, David Letterman is not "a very attractive man." I can only hope that none of his female employees risked losing their jobs or career advancement for not sleeping with him. Can you imagine seeing that goofy mug in the CBS hallways snickering the day after?

I've done a few of the "Things To Do" activities.

I've done one of their speed dating events and somewhat enjoyed it. The only problem was that there were a lot of filler women there and people there just because their friends were doing it.

My sources tell me that 3 females did go to HR with complaints about Letterman. They were ones he DID NOT sleep with and their complaint was that the ones he did sleep with got preferential treatment. About 25% of all successful Gender Discrimination Lawsuits are of that type.

Loathesome Dave and CBS/Viacom are by no means out-of-the-woods yet.

Shawn - I was always curious about those events. I'm on their email list and they're always sending out requests for more men to participate. It definitely shows that while there may not be more women than men in DC, there are certainly more women who attend singles events!

Troll Y2K - good for those women who spoke up! I'm amazed by all the people who think his behavior is no big deal.

I thought Padma looked like a crazed version of the Jolly Green Giant in that outfit. And yes, there was camel toe.

You're also right about Project Runway this season. It's sadly boring and lacking of any strike out talent.

Shaw Girl - I totally agree. I don't see a lot of talent or a clear winner this season.
