[ - ] My professor wants everyone in the class to cite his book. But his book wasn't even assigned reading for the class. So I guess he assumes we all just went out and bought his book after signing up for his class? 10 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

My DH set up a hot air balloon ride for us. Told me that a patient he had worked with at his hospital gave us one on the house as a thank you. When we were up there I had no clue, just thought it was awesome and was happily snapping pictures. The hot air balloon flyer guy (pilot?) asked me if I wanted him to take a picture of us, I said sure and he did and then he held on to my camera for a bit. As I'm thinking "um, dude, my camera back please" my DH (boyfriend at the time) tapped me on the shoulder and was down on one knee with ring in hand, proposing. Balloon guy kept the camera because he knew it was coming so I have awesome candid shots of my total surprise and the whole proposal. Afterward we had champagne and some yummy bites to eat to celebrate. [ Reply | More ]

This. DH and I had many long talks about what we had planned for our future and when would be the right time for us to get engaged and get married.

This reminds me of that NYer cartoon with a map of the US. Over LA and NYC it says "Too Skinny" and over the rest of the country it says "Too Fat." [ Reply | More ]

It really depends on the body type. I'm on the shorter side and pretty small boned so I would look like a pudge if I was a 12. One of my besties though, is about 5'8" and larger bone structure and that size looks awesome on her. Let's just stop judging anyone based on size......we've all got something. [ Reply | More ]

And exactly how is being fat a crime against humanity? "Taught from their infancy that beauty is woman's sceptre, the mind shapes itself to the body, and roaming round its gilt cage, only seeks to adorn its prison." - Mary Wollstonecraft [ Reply | More ]

Thank you, but right now, in these times and this culture, 12 is fat and fat is a problem. [ Reply | More ]

Today's size 12 is what a 16 was in the 90s. [ Reply | More ]
