I've been on a 'The Biggest Loser' kick lately, for some reason. One thing I noticed was that most of the contestants end up being those with a huge potential to be conventionally attractive. They usually have good teeth, hair, skin (maybe makeup) and so on. Do you think I observed this wrong? Or do you think it's a product of the selection process, that they want to end up with the best looking representatives? Or that the 'worst' looking people don't even apply because their other image issues prevent it? I know when I used to struggle with my weight in my early twenties, I let myself go and didn't want to go to the doctor, my teeth were bad due to my diet, my skin had really bad acne... It's not something you see on the show. Not saying anything like 'fat people need to be ugly' but weight issues and depression which a lot of the contestants deal with tend to pull other issues with them in my experience.

Cat owners, I have a question for you. My cat is almost 2 and it's my first winter with her. She's normally very chatty (even her commenting on something needs to be commented on). The past few days we've had the heat on and she's been sneezing like crazy. I got her a humidifier and the sneezing is mostly better but she's still being pretty quiet.

Given that the sneezing is mostly better and she doesn't show any other symptoms of being sick, do you think it's something I should worry about? I tend to be a little paranoid about her wellbeing.
Cancel that. She's back to chirping at me about everything this morning, she just was letting me sleep in for once. :) Thanks!

Edit: please share pics of any of your pets with me even if you dk/dc. I love animals

Kicking out roommates

I need some reassurance that I'm not a horrible person so here's some questions related to kicking out roommates...

Have you ever had to evict a roommate? What for?

Have you ever had to evict a roommate that was also a family member? How did that effect familial relationships? How long until everything "blew over"?

I'm in the market for some good headphones (earbud style). I use them at the gym a lot, so something pretty robust that will stay in when i'm moving about a lot is necessary. I'd be getting them as a present so can go a little pricy, but not so much that i'd be distraught if I washed them/sat on them/otherwise lost or damaged them.
Recommendations?

Me again, with another TV question. Do you ever think that some TV cooks seem to put way too many spices and things in their meals? I just watched Jamie Oliver throw handfuls of rosemary in a tray where was about to roast potatoes (which is delicious, don't get me wrong, I'm talking about sheer quantity). Earlier I watched someone else put a lot of chili and a lot of ginger in things. Are my taste buds too sensitive or are theirs too fried? I eat spicy Hungarian sausage no problem. I've noticed it with other herbs and with lemon as well!
