Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming... Damn, What a ride!!
In your rocking-chair, by your window dreaming, shall you long, alone. In your rocking-chair, by your window, shall you dream such happiness as you may never feel. –Theodore Dreiser
Once upon a time I was bar-hopping with my friend Dan, one thing led to another and we ended up at one of Charlotte's more exclusive gentleman's clubs. Not counting the nude strippers and barely-clad waitresses, I was the only woman in the room. It didn't take long to figure out that although sex was the commodity, the trade was in money and, mostly, feminine power. Every male in the place - including my pal Dan, checked his intelligence with his coat - at the door.
As I sat front and center watching the strippers make slack-jawed, slobbering, walking hard-on's out of these men - I was flirting with Dan and the other bar-mates and I realized that although fully clothed, I had my own particularly enjoyable hold within my group.
Now Betterman decides to give us answers to questions that have been evaded for years by the male lapdance fanclub and what was once only an unattainable fantasy is now a harsh reality?? Women are turning into chauvenistic pigs in the name of feminism and strippers are my competition???
Mix real, live, available woman with fantasy prototypes in a sex club and I suspect we've reached a point where the line of demarcation between the two is no longer discernable. Now it seems imperative to learn to dangle upside-down on a pole (in thigh highs for better grip).
And since when is it sensible for any person of any gender to succumb to a sexual free-for-all lifestyle?
With so many women/girls emulating strippers, pressure is once again on the rise for those of us who are less than 'perky' to produce a product that should be KEPT a FANTASY.
Heaven help me, I'm raising two girls alone. *shudder*
Sorry, but if this reaction is what you call envy then I can no longer portray myself as an un-jealous, accepting woman.
Last night, my friend and I were sitting in the living room and I said to her, "I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle. If that ever happens, just pull the plug." She got up, unplugged the TV, and threw out my wine. B*tch.
I wish I could post links.
It seems that over in Europe a man can be compensated a measly $4,100 for damages caused by a hospital 'killing' the top of his head (which was removed and kept in a faulty refridgerator while having brain surgery) while an OBGYN has been ordered to pay child support to a woman for a child he had no part in conceiving! Apparently the OBGYN was to have placed an IUD in the woman and shortly thereafter she became pregnant BY HER HUSBAND. The husband left the wife and she sued the doctor. A judge granted her child support payments until the child reaches 18. Apparently the hubby got off, pun intended.
And we say "Only in America!"

I noticed that CNN was running a new scare graphic of fat in the US, linked via digg. And of course there's Dr. Gupta making a guest appearance.
There's one thing that this map, and every map charting the BMI changes, doesn't mention: the US government's redefinition of what it means to be "obese". It happened in 1998. According to the NIH a HEALTHY or NORMAL BMI IS BETWEEN 19 AND 25. ... THATS 19 AND 25!! Ok, a supermodels BMI is generally at 18! That puts a hopeful "typical" BMI at five pounds more than your average emaciated, anorexic model. Here's a snippit from THAT CNN article:
" Under the proposed guidelines, which are to be announced later this month by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), 25 million more Americans would be considered overweight -- including two baseball third-basemen: Chipper Jones of the Atlanta Braves and Cal Ripken Jr. of the Baltimore Orioles.
Stern and other critics worry that if the draft guidelines are adopted, doctors might prescribe diet pills for patients considered overweight -- when a little exercise might be all that's needed. "
Ya know, it's a good thing we don't need prescriptions to poop our pants (thanks to Alli, of course). Problem solved!
On the BMI scale, a woman 5 feet, 6 inches tall who weighs 160 pounds would have an index of 26, which is considered overweight. At 185 pounds, she would have an index of 30 and would be considered obese.
You get the idea.
I can not believe the Chicago Tribune actually let this article post. It's Headlined: Friendship at heart of obesity;
Overweight? Pals may play key role, researchers say.
By Judy Peres Tribune staff reporter
11:09 PM CDT, July 25, 2007
Basically, this article is accusing us fat people of giving our friends the gift of fatness and forewarns the "thin" population to EXPAND their network of friends to minimize contact with us fatties.
For those of you who don't want to waste time googling it, here:
Your friends may be more important than your genes in determining whether you gain weight, according to a new study billed as the first to demonstrate that obesity tends to spread through social networks.
The study, which followed a group of Americans for more than three decades, found that a person's chances of becoming obese increase dramatically after a close friend or relative fattens up. The same thing happens when someone close slims down.
The authors of the paper speculate the reason is "the spread of norms from people to people. People change their minds about what constitutes an acceptable body mass index" as their close friends gain or lose weight, said co-author Dr. Nicholas Christakis of Harvard Medical School.
(Note from Jo: Basically one person says to her/himself "I can gain 5 pounds, I'm not as fat as so-and-so..)
Ok, so really, google the article because I may be finishing it here, but it goes on to cite more crap than I care to repeat.
Summer Reality Shows... hate some love some can't wait for a few. The Coreys are coming and my boob tube is tuned in for their arrival. I am a child of the 80's I can't help myself. I grew up in love with both of them. I am getting a heated knot in the pit of my stomach just thinking about it.
I am also in love with Bear from Man vs. Wild. Yes, he eats some really disgusting sh*t, but you know there is nothing better than a man willing to do anything to get what he wants. I force the remote from the gripping clutches of my 10 year old and tune out the protests long enough to get at least one episode a day in.
... and I am in love with Rowe from Dirty Jobs. It's a strange attraction that I can only best excuse with saying what I said about Bear. Watching him battle guano at the bottom of a 1,000 foot cave surrounded by millons of bats, covered in thier droppings and stuck in to the knee is just sexy, man.
And last but not least: Build it Bigger. That wussy architect is growing on me. It's funny when he's screaming like a girl, but I have to give him props for being an intellectual. Something very stimulating about a man who's scared sh*tless but doing it anyway.
So, because I would rather hole up and read a book than fight with the girls for the remote this summer, I am, like usual, missing out on lots of interesting shows.
So whats your favorite.. and why?
Mike Huckabee: Michael Moore is Fat
The way Michael Moore's "Sicko", his weight, and his politics are being wrapped up and treated as one by the media is really impressive and a little scary. It's great to have such authority figures as Mike Huckabee, the Jared Fogle of the political set, weighing in on these important issues.
"Frankly, Michael Moore is an example of why the health care system costs so much in this country. He clearly is one of the reasons that we have a very expensive system. I know that from my own personal experience," said Huckabee, who lost more than 110 pounds and became an avid runner after he was diagnosed with diabetes.
Note: this is Huckabee's only qualification. He lost weight. Oh? What? He's running for President? Ah, sure. Right. His platform is probably "I lost weight, so should you!"
"I know how much more my health care cost when I didn't take care of myself than when I do take care of myself, not only in terms of doctor visits but regular diseases, illnesses, chronic things that come up, monthly prescription bills," Huckabee said. "All of those things have gone dramatically down since I've taken care of myself and worked to live a healthier lifestyle."
Yes, you know it: Michael Moore "isn't taking care of himself", which is the new codeword for "is fat". If you "take care of yourself" (ie, lose weight) you're a Good American; if you don't, you're... part of the problem. Right.
Meghan O'Hara, producer of "Sicko", responded:
"No wonder the Republicans are in such trouble ? their entire plan to fix the health care system in this country is to tell people to lose weight," she said.
"There's nothing worse than a reformed smoker ? or Twinkie eater for that matter ? preaching conversion."
Well, about time someone said it.
I just wanted to address everyone that I love and that love me.
Ok, so I dropped off the face of the earth a while but I have missed my blog buddies here at LF. Bigheart teases me often by discussing blog topics and such so you know it wouldn't be long before I was back and putting in my .02 (and often times much, much more lol).
So anyways.. I'll be popping in periodically to nose around and stir up some sh*t.
Oh, one more thing.. went to see Marc Broussard last Saturday night... awesome preformer ya'll and he is gorgeous to boot. Good songs, gotta love it!
Information potential "Alli" consumers might want to know... May 25th, 2007: Alli, GlaxoSmithKline?s new diet pill, won?t be available for weeks yet, but the next phase of the guerilla marketing is in full force and deserves one last reality check. No doubt, the last installment of this ongoing story will come laterwhen the after-market side effects become widespread. Here's a quick overview of the saga to date. We?ve looked at the $100 million that GlaxoSmithKline paid Roche for the U.S. rights to Xenical (orlistat), and its petition to the FDA to market an over-the-counter version, given the cute name ?Alli,? anticipating annual sales of $1.5 to $3.9 billion. Along with this investment, began an intense guerilla marketing campaign, which included creating a pseudo-professional organization and inundating the media with stories about the ineffectiveness and dangers of unregulated weight loss dietary supplements that will compete with their new ?FDA-approved? OTC diet pill. Talk show hosts, newscasters and newspaper reporters fell into lockstep and took the role of marketing disguised as news. The company also sponsored a PBS ?documentary? ? ?Fat: What no one is telling you? ? to convince Americans of the horrors of obesity, fat people?s ?issues? with overeating, and the futility of dieting in today?s obesogenic environment without help. Several weeks ago, one million copies of their diet book went on sale at $5.99 a pop, with 3.5 million starter kits ready to hit drug store shelves in mid-June. But television commercials are already saturating airtime, store displays are up, direct mailings and print ads are filling our mailboxes, and online ads are everywhere. Earlier this week, with great media fanfare they opened an exhibit in New York City and introduced their interactive website. Launching this diet pill has been the largest investment made in any over-the-counter brand in the past decade, said Steve Burton, a company vice president. This year?s marketing budget alone is $150 million and seven agencies have been tasked. This may sound like a lot, but it?s a small price given the millions of Americans they anticipate will be willing to pay $2 a day, $720 a year.... What will consumers get in return? Even the company is downplaying any claims. They?re telling people it works only if they work, too. According to their website: It won?t be easy, nothing worth it ever is. But greater weight loss is possible. 50% more than with dieting alone....if you have the will, we have the power?. Weight loss is possible, but the reality of what people can hope to lose is considerably less than ?50% more than dieting alone? might lead people to think. In clinical trials, those taking Alli-strength Orlistat along with dieting and exercise for a full year, lost an average of under 3 pounds more than those who were dieting and exercise alone. After 2 years, about 24% of the dieters and exercisers had maintained a weight loss, compared to 34% of those taking the pill. No longer studies are offered, which, like all weight loss interventions, would no doubt show the weight gain projectory to continue, even those still restricting their calories. Should you stop popping the pill, too, that weight will pop right back on. So 3 extra pounds lost after two years of dieting and exercising and spending about $1,440.00 for Alli ? that must be the ?will? they?re talking about. Oh, but this isn?t just a diet pill, there?s also a diet book. ?Are You Losing It?? offers their ?keys to successful weight loss,? which includes all of those oldies dieters have tried and failed with for the past century: set small goals, eat the ?right? foods and a ?healthy diet you can live with for life;? choose foods low in fat, reduce calories and portion sizes; keep a food diary; and get organized so you remember to take your pill before every meal. According to the FDA document, ?Alli: Read Me First? for consumers: Under the Alli plan, a severely restrictive low-fat diet is mandatory and it has ways of making you comply. Their diet book has an extra value-added bit of advice: If you eat more than 15 grams of fat, expect some ?unpleasant effects.? Their book recommends that people wear dark clothing and start the program when they have a few days off work, or to bring an extra pair of pants to the office. These significant side effects have sparked a flurry of internet jokes about ?Alli-oops moments.? Xenical users have learned about these side effects the hard way. They are so unpleasant, few users continue to take it for very long. Here?s what one healthcare practitioner wrote by way of caution for those who might be tempted to take Alli, as well as for the rest of us: HOWEVER, and this is VERY important...you will LEAK orange foul-smelling oil from your tushy if you eat fatty foods! It will not clean with toilet paper, it will stain the toilet bowl until scrubbed with bleach, and it will leak THROUGH your pants uncontrollably, also staining your clothes (it is VERY hard to get out, even with bleach). This will happen only once to convince you to decrease your fat intake..lol. No fast food on this medicine, no greasy foods, no pizza especially. I don't know why they don't warn people about this. I am an ARNP who prescribed it to many patients, but I gave them the warning to be careful. Carry baby wipes, and an extra set of pants!! At least until you know how it will affect you. Sorry, but somebody needs to warn the public. I will be afraid to sit on a cloth seat (think theater) anywhere in public when this comes out! The leaking stain is 99% permanent (smell too!). Well good luck all dieters..and don't say I didn't warn you, lol. According to Dr. Susan Norris, M.D., of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, despite unimpressive weight losses, ?gastrointestinal adverse effects (explosive diarrhea, fecal incontinence, abdominal cramping, anal leakage and oily discharge) were common.? Smelly, embarrassing accidents aren?t the main concerns about this drug among medical professionals, however. As we?ve reviewed, the clinical evidence for this, like all the popular diet drugs, is short-term and shows modest effectiveness and high drop-out rates. More importantly, it offers no clinical support for long-term benefits for actual health outcomes, such as cardiovascular disease or deaths. No diet pill to date has been able to demonstrate that. While the public is focused on the weight loss, such as it is, the significance of its primary side effect is underappreciated. It reduces the absorption of fats ? which are critical for health ? and also fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E and K) and beta-carotene. Twelve percent of Xenical users become vitamin D deficient within 2 years, and vitamin E and beta-carotene deficiencies have been documented in 6 percent of those taking it, according to the company's literature. If millions of Americans begin taking this pill, the numbers of those with vitamin deficiencies are expected to grow. Young people still growing, pregnant women, the elderly, and those with gastrointestinal and absorption problems are of special concern. Dietary guidelines, for example, recommend teenage boys get 100 grams of fat a day and girls around 73 grams, significantly more than is possible on Alli. While it?s supposed to be for adults, many healthcare professionals are concerned that the readily-available OTC pills will be abused by teens and eating disorder-prone young people who already don?t hesitate to resort to laxatives. And while vitamin supplements are recommended by GlaxoSmithKline, fat-soluble vitamin supplements are of limited value on low-fat diets. Vitamin A is important for growth, healthy bones and teeth, reproduction, vision, and healthy skin and mucous membranes. Vitamin D is critical for helping maintain bones and teeth, muscular strength, and more. Vitamin K is essential for normal blood clotting and bone health. Other concerns that have been raised about Alli include possible roles in kidney stones, hepatitis and precancerous changes in the colon. Health, of course, is not the real reason many people will try any weight loss scheme, and the Alli campaign barely mentions health. It?s simple, however, to give consumers the perception of scientific support by letting health professionals do the marketing. Last month, GlaxoSmithKline announced their partnership with the American Dietetic Association, a fellow member of the American Obesity Association, the lobbying organization for obesity-related interests. According to the ADA press release, it?s part of their sponsorship program that provides corporate sponsors a national platform through the ADA, which has ?prominent access to key influencers, thought leaders and decision makers in the food and nutrition marketplace.? Mr. Burton was cited, saying that they would be working towards their common goals ?through these public and professional awareness campaigns.? So they now have the 67,000 registered dietitian members helping to market Alli?s ?healthy eating? weight loss plan. The ADA, if you?re unfamiliar with this group, is the country?s largest trade and lobbying organization for nutrition professionals and says it is committed to five issues: ?obesity, especially childhood obesity; healthy aging; creating a safe sustainable food supply; nutrigenics and nutrigenomics; and integrative medicine, including supplements and alternative medicine.? GlaxoSmithKline adopted a clever marketing tactic: ?honesty.? At the New York City press event, Mr. Burton said: ?Alli breaks through the clutter with straight talk, an honest voice, saying that losing weight is hard work.? The company says it doesn?t want people to have ?ridiculously high? hopes and are setting themselves apart from fad diets by making it part of a ?healthy lifestyle.? According to their website ?You don?t just try Alli ? you commit to it.? One can almost imagine the Boardroom meetings scheming how to get around the fa
Ok. So we all know that damnable question in damn near every man's heart that we happen to come into contact with. "How big r yer b00bs?" ... "I like you but yer big b00bs bring it all home" ...
WTF? I mean.. really: WTF??
The female form, in any "consistancy", should be admired and appreciated. Hell, even I love to look at nude women - we are beautiful! ... so why is the size of my chest so freakin important?
It's just too damn bad for us ladies that we can't do a c*ck size test before we start dating. We don't get to find out how "gifted" a fellow is until it's in our face and by then it's too freakin late to back out of the arrangement! How f*cking unfair is that????
If we could tho... man! .. men round the world would be changing their tunes real freakin quick!
OK...hope no one attacks me but seems to me like when a guy comes on here and they are attractive and athletic they seem to get chit on....wondering why that is? I know we all prefer pictures but does not having a picture always equal married or some other bad thing....there could be alot of reasons why someone would not post their pic...not to mention that someone could easily post a pic of anyone and who would know the difference...see where I am coming from?
Ok, I am not attacking you Diamond, but I do have a couple of things to say about your post. Did you miss a few blogs here and there? If the majority feel a profile is not honest or up to snuff then the person in question will be called out. He is given ample time and space to provide a sound rebuttal if he so chooses. Notice, I said SOUND.
OTOH, if the majority feel *him* to be upfront and honest at least as first glance, then they flock for *his* attention. I have seen this firsthand (and even participated) in the IS IT WRONG TO WANT SEX (lazyafternoons) or HOW RUDE! (more for me to love) blogs.
He doesn't want to post a picture of himself because he is high profile? That statement speaks volumes regarding the health of his ego and will/did ultimately invite some snarles and clucks from us ladies that have had enough egotism from the opposite sex to last three lifetimes.
I have a high profile job. I see hundreds of people weekly ... not to mention that my entire family have computers and know how to use them. I'm not afraid of anyone seeing me on here. Why is he?I know something you don't know.. see I can go into my post history and see EVERYTHING I POST - end user deleted or not.
Mr. Quim decided to remove his blog altogether after I posted this little diddy earlier today. Then he thought he would brag by sending me a link to his blogs in my e-mail. Makes you go HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMN.

Please join me in remembering a great icon of the entertainment community. The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and trauma complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 71.
Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, and Captain Crunch. The grave site was piled high with flours.
Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy and lovingly described Doughboy as a man who never knew how much he was kneaded. Doughboy rose quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. He was not considered a very smart cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-baked schemes. Despite being a little flaky at times he still was a crusty old man and was considered a positive roll model for millions.
Doughboy is survived by his wife Play Dough, two children, John Dough and Jane Dough, plus they had one in the oven. He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart.
The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.
