Dec 12th 2007 6:15AM I think all women should worry about their appearances more then they do and maybe men will show us the respect we need.
Why do women need to worry about what men think of their appearance? Shouldn't people just try to be happy with themselves instead of trying to look a certain way for other people? I have never based my respect for a person on their appearance, I tend to look more to personality and personal accomplishments. I hope most people aren't so shallow that all they base their respect for a person on is their physical appearance. Respect gained by a good physical appearance is not the type of respect I hope to achieve in my life.
That's sweet that you're happy with your size 12 and you think that your husband loves you like that, but he's probably getting it on with your 18 year old neighbor.
Now that was just rude and uncalled for, not everyone is as shallow as you, and a size 12 is not that big on some people. It depends a lot on height and bone structure. Also, true love is not based on appearance, you seem to be confusing that with lust.
Men need to be with something attractive and thin is attractive.
Thin is attractive to some people, but not to everyone, and I wouldn't call wanting to be with someone attractive a "need" it may be a want, but certainly not a need. At least, not for anyone worthwhile. While a good number of people like their partner to be thin, a lot of people like their partners in the healthy range of sizes (depending on height and bone structure, is usually between size 2 and size 10) and a small minority even prefer their partners obese. Just because thin is attractive to you does not mean it is attractive to everyone.
Nov 20th 2007 3:36AM Why does Christmas get to be the only holiday stores advertise? What would you all think if all the signs and advertising was for Chanukah specials, or Kwanzaa decorations? It only makes sense to use words and phrases that include all the holidays of the season.
Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanzaa, New Year, et. Cetera.
Happy Holidays works a lot better than Happy ChristmaHannuKwanzikah.
Mar 9th 2007 8:52AM It is pretty neat, but I'll bet it is really heavy.
Mar 7th 2007 10:11AM I am 17, and I wouldn't mind having to retest every few months. I am confident enough in my driving ability to know I would pass again. If you don't want to retest, you probably don't need to be driving anyway.
Mar 3rd 2007 2:55PM Cancer is a disease, AIDS is a disease.
Being overweight is NOT a disease, it is a poor life choice, and it can be a contributing factor to some diseases but it is certainly not a disease itsself.
If you view it as a disease, do you also go to support groups and say things like: LOL you guys all have cancer and I don't. I win! Losers!
Honestly, yes, I am somewhat overweight, about 10 pounds. Why? I work at a pizza buffet for low pay, and they feed me for free while I'm working. I don't make much money, I'm not going to spend my hard earned money on tofu and veggies, when I have more important things to worry about, like my car payment. I'll just eat the pizza.
Mar 3rd 2007 1:56PM Differant people are healthy at differant sizes.
I have two friends that are both the same height, and thin. One of them wears a 2 and one of them wears a 6. That is because they have differant body types. The friend who wears a 6 is hourglass shaped, and the friend who wears a 2 is Celery shaped.
There are 4 main body types:
1) Apple - Apple shaped people are top heavy, often with wide shoulders, and large boobs. An apple shaped person might weigh the same as someone with a differant body shape, but wear smaller pants, because apple shaped people have no bottoms.
2) Pear - Pear shaped people are bottom heavy. A pear shaped person might wear a size 10 or 12, and only be 5'4", and still be perfectly healthy. That is because all their weight is on their bottom, and that is where the pants go. Also, any excess weight is not carried over the internal organs, which is what causes health problems.
3) Celery - It is entirely possible I have made this one up, but have you noticed people that are just small all over and can't seem to gain weight even if they want to? Those are celery people.
4) Hourglass - Hour glass shaped people have large boobs, a large bottom, and a small waist. Hourglass people tend to wear larger clothing sizes, while still looking thin and healthy and be considered hot by the hip hop crowd (an unfortunate side effect).
Honestly, while a 2 might be fine if you are a celery or an apple, it is probably unhealthy on a pear or an hourglass. Same for a size 10/12 being fine on a pear or an hourglass, but unhealthy on a celery or an apple.
Jan 26th 2007 11:40AM I've had my hair dyed professionally twice, and they have messed it up both times. The first time I wanted red and got purple, the second time I wanted to go back to my natural color for my senior pictures. My hair is naturally light brown, I somehow ended up with bright orange. I've dyed my hair myself about 5 or 6 times, and I've messed it up once, if you can even call it messing up. It came out the color wanted, that color just didn't look good on me.
