Little Miss Perfect

Well, I was sitting here thinking of a great way to start the new blog on my website.  I tossed around the idea of writing about my current massive revision (which I should be doing instead of blogging).  Then I thought about talking about the book I'm currently reading (An Assembly Such as This -- a retelling of Pride and Prejudice from Darcy's POV).  Neither of these took.  During this time, I had a Facebook conversation with Alison MS (I'll give her a semblance of privacy).   Inevitably, our conversation turned to a shared guilty obsession -- the TV show "Little Miss Perfect."  Have you seen it?
The show follows around two different little girls each week.  These girls compete in the Little Miss Perfect beauty pageant.  The show is... well, it's just plain old creepy!  Once I get past the fact that these moms spend thousands of dollars on costumes for a possible payout of $1000 (just for the winner), I run into the pageant host/director.  Don't get me wrong, he seems like a nice enough guy.  However, at the end of every pageant, he sings to these girls and the audiece of about 10 people.  It's very odd.  I don't think I can explain it well enough.  You just have to watch.
