Weight Discrimination As Prevalent as Racial Discrimination

I was going to ask, “This is news to whom?” Then I real­ized that it’s per­fect­ly like­ly that peo­ple who aren’t fat real­ly don’t real­ize how much size dis­crim­i­na­tion there is, while it’s impos­si­ble for the rest of us to avoid it. From the Inter­na­tion­al Jour­nal of Obe­si­ty, 4 March 2008: Dis­crim­i­na­tion against over­weight people—particularly women—is as […]

WordPress Upgrade Woes

Ack! I upgrad­ed to the lat­est ver­sion of Word­Press (2.5) yes­ter­day, and now one of my favorite plug-ins (Now Read­ing) isn’t work­ing! You can see the books I’m read­ing at the moment over there in the side­bar, and I can get into the admin­is­tra­tive inter­face, but the library dis­play does­n’t work. Any of the actual […]

Book Joy! And Stuff

I’m so tick­led! In the last two weeks, I’ve found not one, but two books that Sam and I have want­ed for ages at good prices on eBay! First, I’ve been look­ing for See­ing Red: The Rap­ture of Red­heads by Howard Schatz for years and years. Seri­ous­ly, it has to be at least five years since Sam […]

Friday Links

It was a nice, bor­ing day, which means I don’t have much to talk about. Hap­pi­ly, oth­er peo­ple do. Open Rela­tion­ships: What the World Already Has is a very good post over at Huff­in­g­ton by Jen­ny Block. I hope to read more from her. I def­i­nite­ly intend to get a copy of her book, Open: Love, […]

Date Night Happiness

My sweet­ie had to run a bunch of errands before he got home last night, which short­ened our date a bit. Gro­ceries were need­ful, though. We had some deli­cious deli-style sand­wich­es after he got home, so there was­n’t a kitchen mess to deal with, too. I think we watched an episode of West Wing while eating. […]

SBQ: Print it out or stitch from screen?

This week’s Stitch­ing Blog­gers’ Ques­tion is: When you stitch a pat­tern that you have down­loaded do you print out the pat­tern or do you stitch direct­ly from your com­put­er screen? I don’t remem­ber actu­al­ly stitch­ing any of the many pat­terns I’ve down­loaded. The­o­ret­i­cal­ly, though, I’m sure I’d print them out, and prob­a­bly put the print­out in a […]

Special Request to Fibrant Living Listeners

Edit: THANKS TO KATIE, we found back­ups of the pod­cast files we were miss­ing. Thank you, Katie! This is Sam. I am the pro­duc­er of the Fibrant Liv­ing pod­cast that Cyn­thia writes and records.  The lack of down­load links on Fibrant Liv­ing #1, #2, and #3 are my fault.  I thought that Lib­syn’s archive was in perpetuity, […]

Extreme Introvert Attack In Progress

Seri­ous­ly. I did­n’t even want to make a post, because it counts as inter­act­ing with the world. But hey, that’s the price of Blog365, right? I remem­bered those “Writer’s Block” prompts on LJ, and decid­ed to try that as a starter. Who comes up with these things? One of them was about what you’d want […]

Mah tahred hurts

Read it pho­net­i­cal­ly. When I’m real­ly tired, I fall back into the Alaba­ma accent. Made it to my appoint­ment this morn­ing. Made it to Katie’s appoint­ment on the oth­er side of the world. Then the car would­n’t crank. In fact, it would­n’t do any­thing at all. Not even the auto­mat­ic door locks were work­ing. No […]

Another One Down

I fin­ished up week 3 of the semes­ter, which means that we’re almost at the halfway point. I real­ly, real­ly want to get done with both class­es this semes­ter. I’ve had to drop the man­age­ment class twice in the past, and I’m tired of it! The human­i­ties class isn’t that bad, oth­er than the “My Country […]
