and some procrastination

because i just can't go whole-hog into spartan mode, here's a little fruitless side distraction. thanks to the daily dose of reality for the questionnaire:

What's wrong with fake breasts?
eh, nothing really, i guess. it's less the things themselves and more what they say (i.e., i don't feel good enough as i am, i'm conforming to someone else's standards of beauty, etc.). not to mention that if they're not done well, they just look awkward and uncomfortable.

List your latest run-in with the Carnival of Idiocy.
i road-raged all the way down I-10 east yesterday, from columbus, TX back here. it was just a parade of goofballs.

Name one thing you'd like to tell your ten year ago self.
don't do it. just don't do it. you're not thinking about what's good for you; you're crafting an identity that you think other people want you to have. don't lose the next few years over this...

What's your favorite word that's not in the dictionary?
ooh, that's a good one. dumb-ass-ery, i think.

Why do fools fall in love?
because love is a foolish thing. it makes no sense.


  1. Parade of goofballs, I like it!

  2. I partially agree with you on the breast thing, but I recently lost a ton of weight and my breasts are ugly, saggy, empty things now and I want to get them redone. I don't think that's a bad thing, because I think I (and every woman) deserve to feel sexy...but I do understand where you're coming from.

    Also, traffic sucks.

  3. see, that's totally valid; you'd do it for your own reasons. (and i totally understand that - my hip/thigh/stomach region has definitely seen better days after a 50-lb weight loss.) i just don't think that rational, self-empowering motivations drive most breast jobs. that makes me really sad.

  4. Hey, you drove right past my old place in Beaumont. Glad to hear the drivers haven't changed a bit.

    It's funny, you said Columbus and, for some reason, I was thinking Cleveland, which is to the north of Dayton and...why the heck do all these Texas towns have Ohio names? Eh, anyway, drove that chunk of 10 from Beaumont to Orange almost every day for a year and a half, you should have seen it before the construction. It really sucked then.

  5. Definitely true. Kinda sad when a woman just does it to get guys...and ironic since most guys prefer smaller real ones to bigger fake ones.

    Way to go on the weight loss! I've still got about 20 pounds to go, but I'm getting there faster than I thought I would. :)

  6. FD - gaaaaah. i'd have lost my MIND driving that stretch that often. it was kinda weird, too; when we drove into beaumont, quite spontaneously, my ipod pulled up and played "beaumont" by hayes carll. don't know if you're familiar, but it's a pretty song.

    anna - yay! weight loss progress feels SO freaking good. sending sleek-and-deadly vibes your way. :)


your turn.
