As some of you know my life has been a bit crazy lately. My mind is scattered in million directions and the ability to post 500 words on one subject is daunting right now. But there are bits and pieces running through my head that I’d like to share. I’m not going to fight the urge to flit here and there. I’m going to embrace the ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) side we all have from time to time……Ready? Set? Go!
- Not too long ago I had a fat day. And Glamour’s picture of their “plus-size” model helped…but then, not so much. One picture with the awesome task of changing our country’s mindset that heroin thin is not in? But guess what? I read this morning that Glamour was inundated with requests for more models like Lizzi. Read about it here.
- I love Steve Martin. Especially classic stand up Steve Martin. Here’s one of my favorites, King Tut. ‘Cause we could all use a little silly in our day.
- And here’s a touching post by Maureen at IslandRoar about traditions, part of a Spin Cycle meme by Sprite’s Keeper, but I read it more as a page in a parenting manual. I love stories like these. They help to show me what it takes to be a good parent.
- I found this picture on Photobucket. I laughed out loud. This is going to be one of those “You Had To Be There” kinds of things but recently we were at Disney World. My boys kept asking me what this sign meant and I told them, “It means ‘No Dancing'” Of course, they didn’t believe me but every time we saw one I would start dancing and they would shout, “Mom! The sign says No Dancing!”
So there you have it. Go now and support Glamour magazine in its attempt to help us with our self image while doing the King Tut dance with your children. May you never run into a No Dancing sign!

I’m laughing out loud at the photo(and dancing!) Hugs!
I love the King Tut routine. I also like the one about getting “small”:D
I love that sign! Classic.
I know all about fat days. Just the other day, I bent over and ripped my pants right down the middle!!
How refreshing to see a group of normal sized, healthy women. ‘Bout time we all gave ourselves a break I think.
Love Steve Martin. One of my all-time favourite movies is ‘All of me’, starring alongside Lily Tomlin. I could watch that again right now.
LOL! love the no dancing! 🙂
Do you know why you don’t feel better regarding the large-sized model? Because she can’t just be called a model. Instead of having models of all shapes and sizes, the industry insists on separating them. Until a model is a model, plus-sized is going to always be seen as an asterisk for “not quite thin enough”.
Oh, your “No Dancing” dance could become part of the family tradition! 🙂 I love the article you pointed us to. I’m thinking that it would be a fun thing for us to all do one?
