Flotsam

  1. Coke Zero tastes almost not like ass, which is impressive for a diet cola.

  2. That movie I was bitching about, wherein Paulina Porizkova is not Stephanie Romanov? Here is Paulina Porizkova not being Stephanie Romanov. 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

  3. It is raining. Yay!

  4. I bought a Shirt Of Extreme Hotness. It makes me happy. Even though in reality it will only be a Shirt of Extreme Hotness ten pounds or so from now.

  5. Why must every otherwise edible or even tasty vegetarian dish be soiled with the inclusion of beans? Why? Why? And I don't mean beans that have the decency to disguise themselves as something else, like soyburgers. I mean... garbanzo. Ptui! (Brought to you by Amy's Organic Shepherd's Pie which was otherwise quite nice. And obviously had to be tried because it had my name on the package, quite aside from the fact that I love Shepherd's Pie.)

  6. I am not a vegetarian. It was just organic and nutritious and looked good.

  7. Head hurts.

  8. Yeah, I got nothin'.

Heeeee! Damn, that's another one like 'I'm Your Daddy' that I'd have wanted to steal. Despite it being a sad, sad lie.

Re #2) Why doesn't Stephanie get more work? My god. And if you look at pic #4 that you posted, it even looks like DB talking to her. Ptui, Paulina!

Re #4) I think you are hot just because you are you. Embrace your inner hotness. Wear the shirt. Watch your target faint and crawl and embrace your ankles and beg to be yours.

#5) Sorry, I got nothing here. I'm a real fan of garbanzo beans. Don't hate me.

2) Stephanie does not get more work because she has bigger boobies than Paulina, and The Man hates Boobies!

4) The shirt is actually a bit too tight; there's 'am I just thinking I can't wear sexy clothes' and 'am I wearing something that's too small for me' and right now it's a fine, fine line. But it was on clearance, so I snapped it up, more because I like the style and it would be gone if I didn't buy it, than because of the price, although price was7 or 9 bucks, something like that, so I can't complain there either.

5) BEANS! PTUI!

Oy, re clothes, I feel your pain.

After much prompting (ok, harrassment) by friends, I am trying to dress sexier. Because my natural impulse is to do that big dress with overjacket thing. Hey, it's easy! It's comfy! If you shop at Ross, it's cheap!

But I am working on wearing shorter skirts and more form fitting stuff. Some days I get loads of compliments. Some days I get stark silence. And I'm never sure if the latter means that I just look like a big ole fat slut, or maybe those folks are just busy with concerns of their own.

*what? You mean it's not all about me?????!!!!*

Hee!

My BFF keeps teasing me about being a clothes horse, but the thing is that my usual pattern is "Find a huge thing I can hide in, then buy seven of them in different colors, and wear them til the buttons fall off" -- being able to find clothes in different styles, that actually make me look good instead of just providing a portable containment unit, is a new thing.

Yep, see, WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT????

Oh, except that I never get any dates or attention. Well, there is that.

Solidarity, sister.

I got some shirts of hotness when I was in Atlanta visiting my family! Lots of flattering to the boobie and glossing over my poochy belly shirts! Okay, well, three. No, four. And a dress.

Lord, the shopping is so.much.better. there. Granted, I live in sort of an anti-mall area.

This was at the little girly-clothes place next to our supermarket, so I'm sort of super-shocked that I keep finding things in there that will fit, let alone that I like. Granted it's heavily slanted towards African American styles, which means that while many of the clothes are pretty, they're made for women with much more boobage than I possess, so even though I'm finding stuff that 'fits' a lot of it is stuff I can't actually wear because the necklines dip way too low on me.

Fun pins that anchor them to your bra?

Yeah, I know what you mean about the target market. The plus-sized stores around here tend to show colors that are far more flattering to much darker complexions.

And I know what you mean about boobage. I'm more of a pear than an apple. And what's with all the CAP SLEEVES for plus size women? I mean, hello? And if you're a size 26, honey, you don't need to be wearing a mini-skirt. Seriously.

nope. It tastes like ass doused in sickeningly sweet sugar substitute...

I keep trying to find a diet cola that I don't hate - Diet Pepsi and Diet Coke fall into the ass category, but Coke Zero doesn't, for some reason. Might be that I actually like the sweet; it's just the chemical aftertaste that still gets me.

heee. I've been drinking diet coke so long that sweet makes me kinda ill ;)

I like Amy's Organic Black Bean Burrito. Otherwise, bring on dey meat.

I like Diet Sprite when it's kinda flat, but only once wevery five years. Otherwise it's real Coke or water. Or margaritas. Or mojitos. Or Cosmos. Sometimes milk. Maybe cranberry juice.

I'm obviously hyper with nowhere to go.

*crie*

I learned that if you get Diet Cola + flavoring, the flavoring mostly covers up the nasty fake sugar aftertaste. My favorites are (in rough order):
1. Diet Cherry Coke
2. Diet Cherry Pepsi
3. Diet Vanilla Coke
4. Diet Lemon Pepsi
5. Diet Lime Coke
6. Diet Lime Pepsi
7. Diet Lemon Coke
8. Diet Vanilla Pepsi

Good luck finding one you like.

I adore lime, but the lime diet coke and pepsi were awful for me. I'm a little afraid to try the cherry because that's a flavor that can come out tasting like cough syrup even in sugared things, if they get it wrong, though I'll probably eventually give it a go.

Hmm - I think I'd be okay with getting sugar when I was expecting fake, or cola when I was expecting lemon-lime. I get squicked when I accidentally get diet cola when I was expecting regular, though. I'm okay if I was thinking diet in the first place.

What really tasted like ass, though? The time I thought I grabbed unsweetened iced tea from the cooler in the snack shop, dumped two packets of Equal in, and had drunk half of it thinking "Man, my taste buds must be off today; wonder if I'm sick?" before loking at the label again and realizing it was sweetened. Gahhhhhhhhhh.
