'Is this a size four?'

Heh. For those of us who have never worn "single figures" since we got out of diapers, it's a little bit tough to empathize, I think.

I love that scene. Vanessa Williams gives good villain. She's really wicked, but you can't help but sympathize with her just a little bit.

What I like most about UB is that it really captures the love/hate relationship that so many of us have with that cruel mistress known as Fashion.

As I stand in the grocery store checkout line, I see the magazines, and the sniping over size plastered all over the covers. An 18 year old gets kudos for her perfect "bikini body." A model gets zapped for the temerity to wear a bikini with a stomach that has obviously had two or more children gestated beneath it. Who do they think cares about these games? It's certainly not any of us who are corralling kids and shelling out for frozen vegetables (ugh). I suppose the insecure single 25 year olds get a bit uncomfortable. Maybe they're the target market, since they have the time and money for those gym memberships.
