Unless it's a serious, let's have an intervention weight comment, don't fucking say a word if it's not positive. Thanks. Dodgy

"Does this make me look fat?"

I suspect it's why they invented the French Foreign Legion.

Idk what half of that means but you're beautiful and do not let anyone try and convince you otherwise.

Clearly she needs an intervention. I get what you're saying. The pic is a bit misleading, though. Anorexia nervosa is much more of a control issue than an "I'm so fat" issue. There's not always body dysmorphia at play.

I intentionally don't own a scale. I know I'm not overweight, nor am I underweight. I don't count calories. I don't diet. I drink whole milk. I'm nowhere near my lowest weight - which I view as positive. I have a mirror in my bathroom. And I don't look sickly. Ok, I look sickly this morning - but it's cause I need to exfoliate and sleep. It's just...comments on my weight really fuck with my head. Which is why it shouldn't be commented on.

It's not ok to call a woman fat, so why is it ok to comment on a thin woman's weight?

The one that gets me -- a guy's supposed to remember a woman's birthday -- but somehow - he's never supposed to be able to remember what year she was born, thus negating any possibility of him divulging her age....

RE: Ranting corner
So, there's this dumbass that lives near me. I have seen him on the road, always driving 5-10 under the speed limit, always hogging the passing lane, not using the center lane to turn left, coming to a complete stop when trying to merge on the freeway, etc, etc, etc. Basically the guy is a douche that can't drive, so much so that myself and a few others recognize him or his car from a distance.

The last time he cut me off on the freeway going 20mph slower than me, I noticed a bumper sticker as I nearly slammed into his tail. "11:11 CE"

wtf is that? TO the Google machine!

11:11 numerology idiocy

DEAR SWEET JEEBUS! He really is a fucking moron. Not just a little, or just a shitty driver, this dude is full on fucktarded. How the fuck do people like this actually exist?


FUCK! I need to move.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

From the pics you post, you look very healthy--a good height to weight ratio. You don't look sickly at all. Like not even a little bit. I think sometimes people say things and they don't take anything else into account (i.e. your busy work schedule).

That and roundabouts. WHY IS THIS SUCH A DIFFICULT CONCEPT? We only have a few roundabouts near where I live, but EVERY GODDAM TIME, I get stuck behind some dipshit(s) that stops for an empty roundabout or stop because someone is entering from the other side... Hobo Hobo CensoredCensoredCensored
