Astounding quote o'the weekend....

As I sat, bar-fly-like, with my friend Rachel, Saturday night all the way through my apple sour and halfway through my Long Island iced tea, I looked out at the sea of anorexic Abercrombie worshippers and one statement came to mind:

"Rachel, these girls all look like tampons."

*bow*

On TV: Zantac commercial
Music: Bubble gum pop
Reading: NOTHING...damnit!
In my head: The stocks and a pointy stick.

  1. ew. precious. i'm happy to say that I do NOT. anyway, self-esteem boost for me (and those are needed when you're shaped the way i'm currently shaped!).

  2. Awww, Clack! You'll be back to your former shape soon enough. That reminds me, I saw a formerly skinny person we went to high school with yesterday in Cracker Barrel. She is no longer tampon-shaped, and my heart did a little jig.

  4. Lisa Stapleton. I wouldn't have wished the hips on her as much as some others, but it was something at least.

  9. Nah, they would've had to look like maxi pads for that. Not wide enough.

  10. That's my mom you're talkin' about.

    And even if you don't give two flips about Mary's spiritual motherhood, that's Jesus's mom you're talkin' about.

    Have a little respect for Pete's sake.

  11. Cher,
    It was a reference to one of NonVocabulum's posts from a week or so ago. She's much more blasphemous than I am!

  12. What happened to Specimen Days and Saturday? Did they suck? I quit reading Wise Blood and am now in a reading funk myself.

  13. Kinda like the bobble-head look? Itty bitty body compared to the huge head. Christina Ricci looks like a bobble-head since she starves herself now.

  14. Amanda,
    Saturday and Specimen Days don't suck, I just can't get into anything above a 4th grade reading level. Blahhhhh.

    Ya know who else looks like a bobble-head?? Lindsey Lohan and Hillary Duff. Hil's really been starving herself. Her teeth look too big for her mouth.

  15. Don't worry -- the stomach acid from Hilary Duff's bulima will soon erode those horse chompers!

  16. Mmmm, I can start callin' her stumpy.

  17. You know WHAT? I'm really loving my body lately. Is that wrong? FUCK! Fuck the tampons.

    Andi, you are god.

  18. Babycakes,
    I love my curvacious bod, too. Rubenesque is the new tampon.
