It maybe hot, but I don’t want to see your flab.

So it has been hot in these parts, or I guess Seattle…

And I’ve seen so many overly, over weight people in little amounts of clothing on.

The truth is, it grosses me out.

Yeah, okay wait..

Yes, I weigh 200 pounds. And at one point in time I weighed 58 pounds more.

But, I don’t leave the house with my gut, ass or tits hanging out all over the place.  I try to wear clothing that fits properly. I make sure you can’t see my underware or bra.  If it is 90° and you happen to see my underware or bra, you must be sitting next to me on my back porch, in my basement, or in my bedroom.

It may be hot but have some class.

But this also makes me want to run up to people and tell them “Weight Watchers will set you free!!” Cut the shit and try something that really works!

Maybe some people are really content being fat and looking like hell, but I’m not one of them.

Love list 6.4.09

with one comment

Hello.

I live in Seattle.

You know, that stupid city that is notorious for rain. Yeah, I don’t think it has rained in nearly 3 weeks.  According to Yahoo! Weather it happens to be 87°… did I mention it also happens to be 8:30pm?! Later next week it will cool off a bit with a high of 70°… I don’t really love the heat but I love the brightness.

Oddly enough I miss placed my cellphone this morning at 5:30am and I still have no idea where it went!

THINGS I LOVE.

  • the man with the red facial hair that is working 2.5 hours away for the next month
  • the black dog that would rather sleep on our bed than on the guest bed with me in the cool basement
  • calls that let me know not to worry
  • bug spray which is chemical free and actually works
  • basements which are about 10° colder than the upstairs
  • hammocks
  • evening breezes
  • vinyl collections
  • puppies
  • metal lunchboxes
  • fresh lettuce from my backyard
  • Paul Simon
  • peaches
  • spare bedrooms in the basement
  • boots with skirts
  • wind!
  • Cover Girl Lipstain
  • grilled veggies
  • huge ass horchatas for $2
  • my mom wanting to know what my brother’s status on Facebook means
  • not turning on the oven when its 90° out
  • a chilled glass of wine to wind down
  • growing you own veggies
  • my outlaw mom
  • pinkish sun sets even though I know it has to do with smog
  • the joy that comes with watering plants
  • string cheese
  • cute tops from target for $13
  • skipping out on parties that I know will contain people who might bring me down.. wuss I am, I know
