Oh the joy

I am finding "Cracker" on BBC America this morning. What a reward for keeping my contagious self away from the rest of the world!! Yay!

This reminds me of a point that I meant to make – but forgot – in the discussion re fatness. It seems to me that for some men being fat ‘works’ and for some doesn’t. One of the former is Robbie Coltrane … are we talking about the same thing? .. the profiler on the crime show? Another is Rickie Tomlinson – now best known as the father in the ‘Royale Family’ – formerly Bobbie Grant, trade union activist, in what was once the best brit TV soap - Brookside. Off-hand, I can’t think of the names of any of the actors or public figures for whom I feel it doesn’t work.

Yes, we are talking about the same thing. Robbie Coltrane is fantastic in this show and he's also, to me, attractive! Same thing with the guy who plays "Teddy" on the short-lived "Murder ONe". I don't know his name, but he has been on several other shows, like NYPD Blue and The Practice. He is bald, not terribly fat, but just plain compelling.

Then there's whatsisname on L.A. Law...shoot, how soon we forget...short, Jewish, wife is taller. I think of these guys when I think of "preferences" in personal ads. I really have no preferences in appearance. For me both the physical and mental attraction comes from inside the person. So when I read a personal ad that says something like "weight proportionate to height please" I move on to the next one. I think I can pass for being "proportionate" but I don't want to be with anyone who thinks this way.

'weight proportionate to height ' - I've not seen that. But somesites, that one you mentioned? ask for ... have I got it right ... 'body mass index'. Lots of sites seem to ask for weight - why assume that everyone knows theirs?

Body mass index!! I haven't gotten that request yet but you can be sure I'd skid right on by if I saw it.

I've seen some ads asking the woman to weigh under a certain amount. I was rail-thin at 145 pounds, wouldn't want to be under that. Some people are so stupid they can't figure out that if you are taller you actually weigh more. In any case, no way I would answer those ads or those questions.
