What man would want a woman this skinny? In fact, as women why would you want to look this skinny? As a thin woman I often feel extremely sorry for women who think this is acceptable and strive to be this thin. Often times if I am out and about shopping or trying on clothes other women will comment on my size. Comments include “you are the perfect size”, “because you are so small I am sure you can wear just about anything”, “I wish I was your size”, “what are you about a size 2”, etc. Believe it or not the latter quote was from an attorney in the business affairs department that was interviewing me for a position at a well established company.
I am 5’8 and I way roughly 130 pounds. I spent most of 2009 trying to gain 10 pounds as my goal was to be 140. That’s 140 pounds of muscle… I did reach 138, but my pants were becoming too tight and I was not interested in buying a new wardrobe as I like most of my clothes that I have now. In fact when I tell people that I am a solid size 4 and often wear 6’s they are in utter shock as they expect me to wear a size 0. My point is, I am thin and I couldn’t imagine being any thinner.
Ads like the one from Ralph Lauren send out a terrible message to young women. I think it is unacceptable and I am happy to learn that the U.K.’s Committee of Advertising Practice has been thinking about taking action on regulations governing Photoshopped ads targeted at girls younger than 16. These images are unrealistic for young women as well as women of a certain age. Continue reading
Once again Lady GaGa is causing the internet to buzz. Racy photos have surfaced of her standing on the balcony of her hotel in Miami with nothing on other than under garments and what some are saying a bloody pad. However, on close inspection of the photos could it really be that she just has a penis
Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” video was selected by the National Film Preservation Board as the first ever music video to be named to the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress. The library selects films that are “culturally, historically or aesthetically” significant after reviewing hundreds of titles nominated by the public and consulting with the National Film Preservation Board. As one of 25 films to be inducted for preservation, the John Landis directed Thriller video will join our nation’s treasures in the world’s largest archive of film, TV and sound recordings along with 1979 “The Muppet Movie” which was the first time Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy graced the big screen.
When I read the headline “Men Don’t Like Ladies With Long Legs
” on one of my favorite men’s websites Asylum.com
it caught my attention. As a self-proclaimed “cute” young lady with EXTREMELY long legs I immediately thought to myself wait, is this why I am single. Ha! Then I thought great, yet another thing against me. It wasn’t long ago when I was watching some random show called Millionaire Matchmaker where I had to listen to this so-call expert rant and rave about men not liking women with curly hair. Oh and must I forget the other thing, kind of a major thing depending on who you ask, but apparently men don’t like skinny women either. Ok, so if you’re counting, I have three strikes – long legs, curly hair, and skinny. When you add in “cute”, you would think it adds up to be a “Model.” Now ask yourself, what man wouldn’t want a model on his arm? Continue reading
This little girl has a style of her own. Very early on you could see her personality forming and like Zoe Kravitz, she is definitely one of my favorite young rising stars. I also have to mention Dakota Fanning. Dakota may not have as much style as Zoe and Willow, but she is an extraordinary young lady.
I read an article that compared Willow’s new hair cut to Rihanna. In another article I read the writer stated “Rihanna is obviously a fashion icon for Willow.” On Twitter someone asked “How do you feel about Willow getting the “Rihanna Cut.” I could be wrong, but I am a bit disappointed because it is clear Willow has an old soul and anyone who knows style can see Willow immolates a lot of the styles from the late 80’s/early 90’s. Yes Rihanna shaved her hair, but she was not the first to do it and will not be the last. In fact, didn’t Pepa from Salt N Pepa have a similar haircut in the 80’s? Not to mention, Rihanna style jacked FeFe Dobson. I love Rihanna’s edgy style and will be the first to admit she owns it, but hey let’s give credit where it’s due. Also, just a side note, Mariel Haenn styles both Rihanna and Jada Pinkett Smith.

I have never tried anything on this list other than Spam. If you are like me, you probably have always wondered, WHAT IT SPAM? Well finally you have an answer.
Apparently, Spam first hit the big-time during World War II when its highly preserved state made it the ideal food to feed to our protein-needy soldiers fighting over in Europe. The labeled ingredients are chopped pork shoulder meat with ham meat added, salt, water, sugar, and sodium nitrite to help keep its color. Continue reading

Earlier this story I read a story about a 911 tape that was released from a home invasion shooting that left an intruder dead from a shotgun blast. The 911 call details the conversation between a 911 operator and a woman who opened fire on a man who at broke into her house. Although there is nothing funny about the story, several days later, I still find myself laughing at what is now going to stand up as one of the crazyist quotes of all time.
THE CALL: Continue reading
