Good Fats vs. Bad Fats I’m surrounded by fats. Fats in my food, fats in my drink, fats hanging off the bodies of the animals whose fur I’m sharing, fats on the bodies of the workers who sweat on machines to combine the clothing I’m wearing….fats rolling under the flesh on my body. So it […]

I’m not a big poetry person. Well, not anymore. I am reluctant to admit that my life and my daily focus have shifted sufficiently that I have a difficult time appreciating poetry in the way that I did in my late teens and early twenties. I don’t notice things like I used to back then; […]

I enjoy Lucky primarily because it doesn’t pretend to be anything other than what it is: a big glossy list of Things To Buy (or, more realistically, Things To Buy More Affordable Approximations Of).

Juxtaposing Thoughts Day 2 Blogosphere. Fatosphere. Cryptosphere. Why does the interweb taunt me so? This language I can’t grapple and this universe I can’t haggle. Individuals become peculiar and I’m left flouncing in a puddle of wet, hot Bluetooth devices. My jaw aches. I’m banging my fingers on a keyboard and hitting backspace. It seems […]

Click through to the Flickr versions for outfit info. On the Fatshionista community over at Livejournal, I frequently see comments about people’s “shapes”. Most are complimentary – as in “You have a gorgeous shape!” – which I’m sure are meant with the best intentions, though they always sound a little weird to me. The obvious […]

* Swiftian: Employing a satirical approach inspired by the writings of Jonathan Swift; like Swift’s writings in tone or outlook; often, specif., sardonic, caustic, pessimistic, etc. (1); see also sarcasm.
