  • If I don’t find out about this fellowship stuff soon, I’m going to lose my cool…up in here, up in here.

  • I got out my college copy of The Great Gatsby last night to reread it (again) before I see the film. I wasn’t up for reading, so I set it by my bed.  Within a minute I realized that it was dusty and because it’s allergy season my nose started running right away.  So I had to throw it on the floor.  The floor next to my bed is where all things go to die.  I hope I find it tonight.  This might be a good advertisement for e-books.

  • You know what I’m sick of hearing? That Kim Kardashian is fat.  Not so much because she is or is not fat, but because IT DOESN’T FREAKING MATTER.  What does matter is the awful dress she wore to the MET Costume ball gala rich people get dressed up weird and drink thing.   I’m no fashion plate but fat, pregnant or fat and pregnant I never wore my grandmother’s table cloth as a dress with attached gloves and matching patterned shoes tried to pass it off as fashionable.  I might try to pass it off as ironic, but not fashionable.  I prefer the GIF version, but I’ll just link to it since it could give someone a seizure.  I think I just had one.

  • Now, maybe Kim is having trouble finding clothes because she’s bigger and good plus size clothes are notoriously hard to find.  The Tumblr WTF Plus Size Clothing is a perfect gathering of the ridiculous things that are marketed to us plus sized women as acceptable items of clothing. (In all honesty, though, there is awesome plus size clothing out there as evidenced by the impending comeback of Re/Dress and there’s still no excuse for that tablecloth dress.) My favorite thing might be their bingo card of fat fashion:

  • The Education of Lauryn Hill continues as Ms. Hill is being sent to jail for tax evasion.  Normally, I’d agree that she should pay her taxes and should have known better.  I mean, we all have to pay our taxes.  But then someone on the interwebs pointed out that rich white guys don’t pay their taxes all the time and don’t go to jail…they get called job creators.  So now I’ve softened a bit.  Still, Lauryn, you’re not going to win this type of thing.

  • To be honest, I couldn’t give two shits about the Jodi Arias trial.  I don’t really even know who this trick is. (Don’t tell Ms. MEPS’ mother…she’s obsessed.)  But the fact that she came out and said she’d rather get the death penalty than stay in prison just proves my point that even if you think the death penalty isn’t morally wrong, it’s not a real deterrent to crime.  If people would rather die than go to prison, give them prison.

  • Carnival Cruises: you’re going to have to stop sending me emails thinking I’m going to book a cruise.  Not only is now not a good time, but you’re not exactly of the reliable reputation as of late.  A paltry discount isn’t enough to get stranded at sea, thankyouverymuch.

tell me youre not serious

What’s on your mind today?

I am a little alarmed at the dress, and I am trying very hard to work through my feelings. I just…are those sequins near the leg split? Did she bedazzle the tablecloth? Why are there gloves with it? Why do shoes exist with that pattern?

I did not even see the sequins. Are they sequins or like rivets?

ARE THEY FUCKING RIVETS? I’D DIE.

I’m not going to lie, I totally snorted when that screenshot of the Robin Williams “Who wore it better” tweet came out. That is straight-up the Mrs. Doubtfire dress. And who in the hell wears gloves anymore? The shoes would be cute, if paired with a simple, non-patterned outfit, so I will give her a small point for that. But, I don’t care what size it’s in — that is one ass-ugly dress.

I honestly thought that Huggies thing was a joke. Seriously — put down your phone for 0.2 seconds and check your kids diaper yourself. Although, I did see someone calling it a “Pee”t rather than a Tweet, which made me happy.

If we purchased said diapers, my twitter feed would be nothing but tweets about pee. I have enough tweets about bodily functions as it is, I think.

The gloves were over the top, but it was some sort of themed event so everyone’s outfit was over the top. But over the top and ugly don’t have to coincide.

My mom is also obsessed with the whole Jodi Arias thing. I didn’t watch it, but she was all over it every night. I did watch the verdict and I was torn. I mean, I’m glad “justice prevailed” or whatever you want to say. But I hate when people gather in front of a courthouse to cheer when verdicts are read. I feel like it’s barbaric and reminds me of when people would cheer gladiators and shit. It’s a bit disgusting.

Huggies can go to Hell if this is true. I never liked their diapers anyway. I was a Pampers fan. I agree with Megg about people putting down their phones for a 0.02 second and check a diaper. Jezus.

KK’s dress was a hot fucking mess. And it was NOT PUNK. Nobody’s punk ass wears chintz. I agree with being bothered by everyone criticizing her weight. I feel sorry for her from that perspective, but she almost invites snarky comments when she wears stupid shit like that monstrosity.
