Fabulous Friday: Don't Judge

I borrowed this from the lovely blog Fabulous K!
Good, old MT (obviously short for Mother Teresa) was so right. But, I am no saint, and, frankly, I do not aspire to sainthood (hard to believe, I know), so I will commence the judging post haste. 

On evenings when I am not entirely sure what I want to write about, I need to look no further than TLC. From the channel that brought us I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant, now we have Virgin Diaries

"Baby, I cannot wait for this sexual career of ours." Dan from Virgin Diaires after he makes love to his wife for the first time ever! Go, Dan!

The show explores the sexual (or not so sexual) exploits of virgins over the age of 28. That seems to be the cut off (from what I can tell) where you officially become worthy of being on a television show and explaining to the world just how and why you ended up so darn weird. Each individual on the show has a different reason for "preserving" his/her virginity well into his/her middle age. The episode I just watched featured a "unicorn." Now, I need to put out there that I attended Vassar College for one (long and horrid) year. At this elite institution of higher learning, I had the pleasure of attending an orientation activity (not sexual orientation- actual freshman year orientation where one usually learns where the dining hall is located and how to contact one's advisor) that informed me about all the sexualities present at Vassar College. Though always fancying myself an open minded person, I felt like I had spent the better part of the prior eighteen years living under a rock in North Dakota. Yet even after that eye-opening experience I had not become familiarized with the rare species I now know to be a unicorn: a lesbian, Christian, virgin. Rare, indeed. 

If you are ever at a loss for something fabulous, all you need to do is tune that dial (I know, no one has a dial, but it is too soon to retire that cliche--too soon) and fabulosity awaits you every hour on the hour. Tree man, and babies in potties, and unicorns! Oh, my!

P.S. Tree man requires a post all his own...
