sugar and spice... and everything nice

who would've thought that what was intended as merely a cheeky tribute to her favourite blogger friends could stir such a controversy... lol!

heh. do we *seriously* believe for a second that we are indeed, ahem, the 35 most chio girls in this volatile virtual community? heck no. but we do believe we're some of naura's favourite blogger friends. :) if only we knew what she would do with the pictures she naughtily nicked from us, perhaps we could've persuaded her to change it to "Naura's 35 Most Favourite Bloggers". no contesting there, right? ;)

and really, all those cliches like "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" and "beauty is only skin-deep" - ah, all applies here. memang betul kan? kalau tak betul, takkan jadi cliche? as you can clearly see, the girls here are of all shapes and sizes and colours and personalities. they *must* be beautiful to at least one other person in the world, or if not, at least to Him who created these beings.

so i say, girls - and yes, boys - take things in the blogworld (especially when it doesn't concern you) with a pinch of salt, pepper and other condiments. coz really, hmm does it REALLY matter who thinks who's pretty, who's HC, who's smart, who's cool, etc? is there really need to be vindictive and catty, now? there there, let's get on with "guarding the side of our own skirt", as they say.

and this whole comical "beauty queen" show, really, i don't think the girls who weren't shortlisted even care or lost any sleep over it. the ones who appeared may not be potentials, maybe they're not worthy of that hyperbolic "jambu" title. but they're amused at it, they had a good laugh. coz it's mindless fun. (erm, if it's mindful, where's the fun in that? bleagh.)

"Some boys take a beautiful girl
And hide her away from the rest of the world
I want to be the one to walk in the sun
Oh girls they want to have fun"
