Is it any wonder...

...that women obsess over the tiniest imperfections? When entertainment headlines are being made over Megan Fox's thumbs?

I don't pay a whole lot of attention to celebrity gossip, but one of the guys at work was talking about this in the lunch room. I thought he was joking when he said people were freaking out about this beautiful young lady's phalanges. I had to look it up for myself.

Incredible. Absolutely incredible. Such a stir caused by such a tiny, innocent thing. You have to feel sorry for celebrities and how their fans insist on perfection. And you have to feel sorry for every other human being who follows in the shadows of these fantasies. This is why a girl who has to shave every morning often feels like she has no chance.

I'll try to update again later this week and actually talk about hair. I haven't been feeling well and I've been working extra hours again, so when I get home I just collapse on the nearest horizontal surface. And possibly drool, but my family has been too polite to point that out.

I must have missed that "scandal" when it happened. Interesting article, thank you!
