All over the Place:

I know I have been lacking on blog posts…I don’t have a good reason. I am not too busy. I just don’t have anything to say, but I do have lots on my mind. So to end my dry spell, I will tell you what’s on my mind.

Eat Less:
You may have heard the buzz - Urban Outfitters has a t-shirt out on the market that simply says, “Eat Less.” With t-shirts that say, “WTF,” and “Drink, Drank, Drunk,” on their website, I don’t know why this is causing such a ruckus. Maybe we do need to be reminded to eat less… unless you are that America’s Next Top Model contestant that has the smallest waist- she needs to be reminded to eat.

It is scary to see what our world is coming to, and it’s evident with shows like the “Biggest Loser,” “15 and Overweight,” and “The Largest Man Living,” on TLC. How did we get so fat? Every other commercial is for Jenny Craig or the “Shake-It.” (which I can’t believe I haven’t given into)

In my opinion, the t-shirt really doesn’t bother me. There are some days, I need to be reminded to eat less. On the other hand, a young girl struggling with body image could really take the message as hurtful. I think it all comes with age. Wherever you lean on this message, please know that the T-shirt was removed from their website but still available in stores…but in mostly larger sizes. I can’t help but let out an evil giggle about the size situation.

And let's give it up for Dove commercials. Dove commercials, mixed with aging, has helped me to accept my body.

Danielle Staub:
Breaking News: Danielle will not be on the 3rd season of Jersey Housewives. While she refutes those claims, I think it’s true. That woman needs psychological help, and I only hope her crazy ways don’t affect her children. And I need to get away from the TV and stop watching these catty woman. If you do watch the Jersey season- have you noticed that Jacqueline is always in scenes where she’s eating? Poor thing. Nobody looks good eating.

Mad Men:
I don’t watch the show, but I have been on quite a few email chains lately about how men treat people at work. And it doesn’t even have to be men- more like “how superiors treat others at work.” For example, my friend’s co-worker sends her emails that say “PPO.” PPO? (Please print out.) Thank goodness they say please, but the person she is printing the paper out for, sits next to the printer. WTH.

I was thinking this morning how much nicer the world will be in several years when my generation is running the world. Gone will be the stuffy superior days and the PPO messages. A workforce revolution is going on in my head. Unfortunately, we will probably always have to battle the “office whistler.” If I ever own a company, I will have a no whistling policy...and a "no food in the breakroom" policy. (don't even get me started on that)

All this talk about food makes me hungry for lunch. The state fair and football season are right around the corner. What does this mean? Corny dog, red clothes, and lots of socializing. I am so over this 100 degrees BS.

And you wonder why I have been an absent writer? Read above. I am lost for words this week. Blame it on the heat.

Stay cool you little monsters.


  1. Yesterday it smelled as if someone microwaved dog food....can't imagine what it tasted like. Lost my cookies almost.
    If a t-shirt said "Eat Less" and I saw it on a skinny person I might think WTH....but I think some fat people should for sure buy it and wear it.

  2. i think the urban shirt could be perceived as sucking only because their models are so damn skinny. and who is the message for? the wearer? the general public?

    also, i especially enjoyed your sign off today "Stay cool you little monsters".
