08/16/2002 Archived Entry: "Target Sucks!"

So how's the David? I suppose I'm fine.

This morning I went out around 11:30 to apply for a job at a new Target opening up in my area. Oh my freakin' gosh, you should have seen the line! It was ludicrous I tell you! It sure was a sign of the bad economic times. The interviews were supposed to start at 12:00 and I did get there a half hour early, but I had to line up behind... I don't know... fifty to a hundred people (too lazy to make a good estimate). I kid you not. Anyway, I was stuck in that line for a while. "A while" being about two and a half hours. -_- And during most of that time, I was stuck out in the sun. Now it wasn't exactly harsh, but try standing out in any sun for two and a half hours. Yah, I was pretty peeved by the time I got through it. And when I did finally get to the front to turn in my application, they told me that they were only interviewing people with open hours today. Because I'm only intending to work weekends, they told me that they'll call me back in a week or two. Bah! Although, by that time I really didn't care anymore. I just wanted out of there. Agh.... =(

At home, friends came over. We did stuff. We had fun. There was karaoke, music videos, video games, and popcorn. How could we not have fun? ^_^ It was actually a "going away" party for my friend Kiki. We didn't have any other house to do it at, so I volunteered my house. Eh... I hoped everyone had fun. ^_^;

I think I'll go off on a ranting tangent here. I haven't really done that in a while. ^_^

Female anatomy. More specifically, representation of the female anatomy. It seems to me that I always hear women crying about the "incorrect" representation of the female anatomy. "Make the breasts and hips smaller!" "Make her less slim!" And I always hear them complain about this is all eye-candy for men. Well that's just a bunch of crap. If you really think about it, would you really want to see a "realistic" model? I didn't think so. To put it bluntly, people like to see idealized people. People don't want to see the average woman modeling attire. No, they want to see someone who looks good in the attire. And the argument that it's all eye-candy for men is bull too. Sure, much of it is because of men, but look around a bit. If you actually look around, most of these images of the "perfect" woman come from womens' magazines and other such literature. So anyway... those are my thoughts. Oh, and don't ask why I went off on this tangent. ^_^;

Yes, I had lots of fun, David. :) Hehe.

You know, some of the models aren't really realistic, haha. It's all been a lie! Okay, maybe not all of it, but some of it. I saw something on tv where they sometimes just edit parts of the body to make the model look better. I don't know whey people go so crazy over trying to make themselves look like the models anyway. Nobody's perfect and if people can't like you for who you are inside then that's their problem.
