If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow, why oh why can't I?

I was watching a program about Judy Garland yesterday on Turner Classic Movies. And, while I have always enjoyed her performances and admired her talents, this time, I learned something crucial about myself. A cameraman was talking about when they were shooting Summer Stock, and how, after shooting had ended, Judy went off to lose weight, but they hadn't shot her big Get Happy number yet. So, she came back after two weeks and had lost twenty pounds and looked fabulous. Because of this, I learned that I am shallow and obsessed with weight loss, because all I could think about after I heard that was how she managed to lose twenty pounds in two weeks. What's wrong with our society? Me, that's what.
