Whoa, what a week! Seems like the news and the internets night after night were full of top stories, and I’m not talking about the highs and lows of Kim K’s butt. Like, the stuff that mattered. The stuff that affects us all.
Personally, my week was busy and I once again found myself with something to do every single night. All fun stuff though. This weekend had set out to be following suit, but hang gliding got cancelled again today for soggy fields (mom is secretly so thrilled. Apple Crisp and me…not so much). Anyway, it means that I find myself with the gift of Sunday before this week’s craziness commences. Happy joy.
Anyway, not surprisingly, a lot caught my eye this week. Let’s get to it.
I actually saw this last week and I forgot to put it up. School-condoned fat shaming. I’m sorry, having been chubs for most of my life, I can say that if your stomach sticks out, you’re pretty aware of it. This made me sad for all those students that no doubt went home and cried after getting this.
On a similar note, are we thin-obsessed? Lettuce, Yam and I have had this discussion numerous times. How would you react if someone called you “thick”? Yam, who happens to be black, said she’d take it as a compliment. Lettuce and I, not black, would be horrified. Cultural differences? Perhaps it’s time for me and Lettuce to change our tune.
While I have lived on the same street for the past eight years, my passport would suggest I’m a modern day nomad. Lessons learned from being so. Invaluable.
Can I love London any more than I already do? This adds fuel to that fire.
People are horrible. Let’s say it again. Let kids be kids. Do I look like Ariel? Hardly, but that didn’t stop me from spending hours in our pool pretending that I was the Little Mermaid.
Bathing suit shopping has got to be one of the most humbling experience that anyone can endure. These non-models did the Victoria’s Secret thing for a day, on camera, and their take on the experience is the funniest thing I read all week. Being smart and funny > wrapping your arm around your waist.
Science, ya’ll. Why do some people think cilantro tastes soapy? Let’s blame genetics. It’s true this time.
And finally, #LoveWins. Alright, Andouille. When’s the wedding?
Have a good week!
