*sips tea* uhh ohhh this is getting good....my MIL has lawyered up since my FIL moved out and filed for divorce yesterday.
I called him this morning to make sure he ain't found some young tenda and he assured me no there is no one else "just yet", he says they haven't been happy in a very long time.

I think what strikes me most about what’s fat/what's not convo is that NONE of the people mentioned are overweight or have weight issues. I mean Christina A gained weight...so what she's a size 4-6 instead of a size 0-2? Mariah Carey even at her heaviest was what maybe a size 6-8? And while lord knows I'm not a Bey fan...I'm looking at her body and trying to see the "fat thighs" that folks are talking about. The other thing that struck me as odd was that some of the most critical folks about Bey, Mariah, and Christina in the next breath were talking about they themselves were “overweight” (but only by a few pounds *insert side-eye here*). I’ve always found it interesting that some of the most critical folks when talking about body image/weight and the like usually fall into the category of being “slightly” over-weight. Not big enough to be big/plus-sized but not small enough to be “skinny”. It’s like the no man’s land of body weight/size and some of the **** that comes outta these folks mouths often times makes me wonder if they are subliminally trying to take the “attention” off of their weight issues and place them on others.

I know that part of the package deal when you are a "celebrity" is public scrutiny of everything from clothing choice, hair, makeup, and weight. But something about the weight scrutiny has always rubbed me the wrong way. Maybe it’s because the scrutiny always seems to set the bar a bit extra high for celebrities…higher that most regular folks could ever achieve…which sets this totally unrealistic view of what a woman should look like…which affects us regular folks and leads to unhealthy body image and a whole bunch of other things. Now…please don’t read into this something I’m not saying…I’m not saying it’s the media’s fault that people have negative body images, but I think the media and this “image” plays a huge part in it and fuels it…and I think we (the consumer) continue to fuel the media and the cycle repeats itself.

As far as the words fat/overweight/plus-sized ect….I cringe at the word fat because it’s usually used as an insult. I know that there are some people that refer to themselves that way and it’s their prerogative, but me…I’m good on the reclamation of that one.

Now granted, I’m coming from a completely different end of the spectrum than most of you so my thoughts are peppered with my own experiences. I’ve struggled with my weight and weight issues my whole life, and that’s not an exaggeration. It took a LOT of head work and couch time to get to a place where I accepted myself as is and stopped letting others influence how I felt about myself and the body I live in.

That's just a snap shot of what was running though my head last night. There's more but I'll stop here for now.

The new mcbites from McDonald are the mcbomb

Yep, black people seem to be the most interested in someone's racial makeup.
Lots of folks think that black people have a pretty standard "look", and if we stray from that, we must be something other than "just black". The young (early twenties), white women on my job ANNOY me, with that. I wanna say so bad, "Do you get out much?"

This YouTube vlogger, who is as cute as a button with his 17-year old self, is half black/half Japanese, and lives in Japan. People seem to be so fascinated with that. "You SURE you half black????" What? Take a look at his videos, and note how many times it comes up, in some form.

Elle (Quest For The Perfect Curl) has gotten numerous inquiries about "what" she is...and most of those questions have come from black folks, which is downright pitiful. I'm like, "You think ALL black people are dark, with 4b hair?" We got some slow ponies in the race.

If you google certain entertainers/actors, too many inquiries are about "what" they are:

"Is Paula Patton mixed?"
"Is Jesse Williams biracial?"
"What ethnicity is Zoe Saldana?"

Why is that such an issue?

And yea, I really don't get it. Unless I am having a conversation about history, culture, or ethnicity, the inquiry doesn't cross my mind. Well, I generally think that people are too nosy overall...but that's an entirely different conversation.

Folks don't wanna "sit" next to him? Really. That's fascinating...and sad. He seems like a really nice young man.

I said to myself, "Precious one, if you lived in the States, you would get no rest. Between the girls comin' at you, the boys comin' at you, the grown-behind-old--enough-to-be-your-momma-but-wantin'-to-be-your-Mrs. Robinson women comin' at you....there'd be no problem finding folks to sit next to.

I don't know, but I think she's a troubled soul - very, very attractive, but missing a few screws (like many in Hollywood). I think men are taken with her looks, and after they get up close and personal, they discover there's a raging drama queen underneath that gorgeous body.

Now, I don't get wrapped up in the lives of celebrities, so my thoughts are pure speculation. But just looking at what I've seen in the media, and what I've heard her say in interviews, there's something not quite right about her.
