Mother-Daughter Part II

On boys:
Me: "Is that why I'm so boy crazy? I have a uterus?"
Mom: "mmmmhmmmm. But you'd be boy crazy at the drop of a hat"

On lime seeds in my drink:
Me: "I'll be able to feel them in my mout..."
Mom: " You'll ALWAYS be able to feel it in your mouth"
Me: "IT?"
Mom: "SORRY...them."

On showers:

Mom: "If we remove your tub would you rather have a stand up shower with water shooting from the walls?"
Mom:"Ok we'll do that *walks away*"
Me: "WAIT....WHAT?!"

Designer Julien Macdonald says plus-size models are "a joke"

Erin Donnelly from Stylelist couldn't have said it any better:
"Sometimes fashion designers are better seen and not heard."

Julien Macdonald Is hoping that as a judge on "Britain's Next Top Model" he can be sure to sway any decision that may involve a plus -size model winning the title...but not in favor of the model.

This is a serious show. You can't have a plus-size girl makes it a joke. It's not fair on them... you're setting them up for a fall. I know what would happen to them. They are looked down on."
FIRST of all if I wanted advice from an aging hobbit, I'd take my ass to the shire where for sure they love a little curve on a lady.
It's people like him, Lagerfeld, and all the snot-nosed designers that have never thought outside of a size -1, that make people hate models and the fashion industry.
It's people like them that crawl like parasites out of the creases of magazines and shine their low self-esteem rays on poor men and women.
I'm a plus-size woman and I can tell you right now, I'm not looked down upon. I know ALOT of plus-sized people that are not looked down upon. 
If anyone is looked down upon, it's assholes like this.
Don't EVER let jerks like this takeover the media and project their vibes on you.
 Remember to always be stronger than the assholes on TV

Less jean for the price of two

Silver Jeans-Light Wash Tuesday
Bootcut Jeans
So during Memorial Day weekend I was desperate for new jeans. All my old jeans are just fine...except they have huge holes and tears in the inner thigh area.
I'm not one to throw away jeans that can be patched up but I had no time so I ventured to my mecca (Torrid) and purchased three pairs of pants.

NOW To your right you will see my most hated style of jean EVER. Silver Jeans brand. Manufactured rips and tears, what were they thinking?

As I write this blog, I'm wearing those jeans

I'm so picky. The jeans I buy must always have some sort of flare leg or they must be in the style of capris. There were two flare style jeans in the entire store and I was desperate.

$92 for missing material. Price is not a problem but I had to question why my father was paying more for less.
Apparently the denim used by Silver Jeans is the same denim used by cowboys so it is tougher. I must say that before I asked the question I did feel that the material was a little stronger than normal.

I feel very little affection towards these pants and so I have christened them my "home jeans"

On the bright side, my other two purchases are from my fave brand Source of Wisdom.

I can't find the jeans on the site but what's better than a picture of me rockin' them?

Source of Wisdom jeans are known for their stretch/hug-to-your-hips technology. they are the ultimate in comfort, but the one flaw...fake side pockets!
 I don't know why designers insist on fake pockets in women's clothing ut that's another blog for another time.

In the end, two out of three wasn't too bad.

Eat Less.....who says?!?

Oh Urban Outfitters what have you done?
Known for its lack of sensitivity to the politically correct public, The major retailer has pulled the tee after the blogosphere erupted accusing UO of promoting or making fun of anorexia.

If it was meant to be sarcasm...well...then that's super nice handwriting at least.

Now maybe I'm over thinking but the first thing that I thunk was that they said "screw subliminal messaging let's tell them that skinny is the way!"

What do you think?

Why a mother should be close to her daughter

So I always quote my mother online (probably a little more that she'd alike and definitely alot more than she knows hah!) here are a few:

 On Phil Jackson (haha):
Me:"He's losing his hair"
Mom:"YOU be a coach for the Lakers and see if you don't lose your hair!"

On Math
Me:"This is a generation raised on scientific calculators, you think we know how to count!?"

On Apple's phone support
Me:"It's a robot that understands me!"

Mom:"Finally something understands you."
On Milla Jovovich in The Fifth Element

Mom: "I liked her better when she couldn't speak English. Here's she's like 'mew mew mew mew I speak English wee wee."

Meeting her friends at 8 a.m
."Mom:"Are you going to wear make up?"
Me:"Not doing that this early for people I don't know.
