  1. Am I weird because I think Kim Clijsters is an absolute babe? I mean, beyond the obvious?

  2. I grew up listening to Stiller & Meara's funny radio commercials, especially the ones for Blue Nun wine. My mother used to listen to the local all-news station in the morning, and those commercials got played a lot.

    I don't follow tennis at all, so I've only heard of Kim Clijsters. When I saw the photos, I thought "Hey, she's cute! ...got a nice smile." So I wouldn't think anyone's weird for putting her in the "absolute babe" category.
