Random Thought on American Idol

Ever notice how when people vote for Haley because she's sexy, everyone says they are voting for her because of her looks, but when people vote for Sanjaya because he's sexy, everyone says they are voting for him because Sanjaya has immense personal charm?

IMHO, Sanjaya is usually far worse than Haley, but nobody talks to him like he's a talentless slut.

Melinda's still my girl.

Ew, ew, ew, Sanjaya sexy? Isn't he like 13? I was looking close last night, trying to figure out if the scruffiness was actually from an eyebrow pencil.

But I also contend Haley is getting her votes from sorority sisters. She just has that ... look.

Not down with the whole inherent worth and dignity this morning,

I haven't watched the show, but just looking at their pictures online, I can verify that Haley is pretty so it makes sense that her sexiness is at least partly attributable to her looks. She is an attractive young woman.

Sanjaya, on the other hand, is a kid (17) who is not conventionally handsome, to say the least. If he is admired for his looks, it is among an adolescent age group that barely conceptualizes "sexy" and mostly is stuck on "omigod, he's cute." I'm not even interested in women sexually, and I'd be more willing to have sex with Haley than with Sanjaya. So if he is "sexy," it really must be for this "immense personal charm" (does that sound like a euphemism!) that comes across on TV and is not visible in his picture.

This isn't related to this post, but just FYI when I clicked on your wishlist to see what sort of things CC might put on her wishlist it took me to MY wishlist. I don't know if that is a fluke with my computer or something on your end, but it could impede people getting to your wishlist who might actually buy you something. Just FYI.
