I’ve Got Caption Skills, Y’all

I’ve Got Caption Skills, Y’all

Michael K. over at Dlisted is one of my fave gossip bloggers. He is straight up hilarious, but he manages to be snarky without being a total ass like Perez Hilton. Anyway, I’ve lusted over the coveted title of caption contest winner for a while. So far just first runner up…always a bridesmaid, and all … Continue reading

Weighting Time

I was a bit hesitant to post this poem, because I’m not one to advertise my weight issues. I think I always felt like if I didn’t call attention to my weight, people might be able to forget that I’m fat. Chubby. Plump. Blah, I don’t like any of those words. I prefer thick, curvy, … Continue reading

PippaGilly Middleton

I’ve had this image of Pippa Middleton in my head for a while now. I saw a pic of her on Celebitchy – I think she was drunk but maybe not – & she was making this face. It reminded me of someone, but I didn’t know who. I finally figured it out…sometimes, Pippa = … Continue reading

The Trick

The trick is not how much pain you feel – but how much joy you feel. Any idiot can feel pain. Life is full of excuses to feel pain, excuses not to live, excuses, excuses, excuses. -Erica Jong

Wow, That’s Brilliant, I Should Say That Out Loud

Jane: Do you ever think about these things before you say them, or just…? Brad: Yeah, I do. I think “Wow, that’s brilliant, I should say that out loud. And then I say it out loud, and it’s spectacular. It exceeds my expectations.” -Happy Endings, 4/27/11

First, the quote: ELLE: If you walked into a woman’s house, what one item would convince you that you weren’t compatible? W: If she had condoms in her house, that would just f-ckin’ throw me off. That’s just tacky. Wait, what? I don’t even know where to begin with how all kinds of wrong he … Continue reading

More (But Not Too Much!) Than Just A Pretty Face

More (But Not Too Much!) Than Just A Pretty Face

Marie Claire urges its readers to be “more than just a pretty face”, but the magazine’s recent editorial decisions indicate that there is a limit on just how much “more” a woman should be.  Maura Kelly’s article, “Should Fatties Get A Room? (Even on TV?)”, for revealed the author’s personal prejudices, and in turn … Continue reading
