  • 12:00 Well, it's nice to know my obsessions are on-trend. Via Apartment Therapy: The IT Plant bit.ly/dySZyT #
  • 12:22 @thisgamermom Exactly. I intend to propose one myself, though obvy my interest is less industry-focused and more culture-critical. #

  • 13:45 @Hindividual AAAA CURSE YOU. I will never get anything done now! #
  • 17:25 One beach-swim later, it's like this whole week never even happened. #
  • 17:27 @thisgamermom Indeed, that's a great point. I expect most folks are uninterested in my deep cultural analyses, and I shouldn't assume so. #
  • 17:28 @ithinkUshould Thanks so much! I'm glad you dug it. #
  • 19:53 Query: are stemless wine glasses totally gauche? I am terrible at these things. #
  • 19:57 @LucindaLunacy Excellent point, thank you. #
  • 20:58 @jasievangesen Ha, that was precisely why I was attracted to them: "Hey, I can drink non-wine stuff from these too!" #
  • 21:03 @stitchtowhere See, I like giant wine glasses in general for this very reason. #

  • 08:45 @bethhicks0518 I'm mostly about video games, but I get a lot of board & tabletop exposure b/c my husband plays those as well! & Thanks! :) #
  • 08:45 @thisgamermom That panel was a trainwreck. I was a hair's breadth from standing up and yelling, but I didn't want to get tossed from PAX. ;) #

  • 14:31 It's Tuesday, and that means a new Huge recap. This show gets better moment by moment. bit.ly/bf1FaY #
  • 14:33 @julialikesbooks Yes! Thank you! This is always awesome to hear. #
  • 14:50 This weekend I re-watched the entire third season of Mad Men. I believe I am now sufficiently prepared for new episodes. #

  • 13:10 Third night in a row at four hours' sleep. I don't even have the attention span for 140 characters. #

  • 14:00 @TheRotund The story behind that is I had to record that intro no less than ten times because the beginning kept dropping out. :P #
  • 14:01 @TheRotund My tone reflects my angst! #
  • 22:39 The woman at the liquor store not only carded me, but then proclaimed me to be "looking good!" That + the Guinness = my night is complete. #

  • 11:20 I LOVE THIS. @ebertchicago has written a rice-cooker cookbook. The theory and practice of The Pot bit.ly/934OFm #
  • 12:09 I hereby rename the popular phrase from "obesity epidemic" to "FAT RAMPAGE". Please make a note of this change in all future correspondence. #
  • 12:12 This change makes reading fat-panic-related headlines and articles a lot more palatable and a lot more amusing. #

New new new

I am apparently recapping Huge against my will. Here is my take on the first episode.

Are you all caught up on Fatcast? Fat travel, an "emergency" episode from last night about the aforementioned Huge, another new episode about exercise to come on Friday?

In other news, I am making great strides on the book proposal I've been casually poking it for the past, uh, eight months. The strides are because someone actually wants to see it. BUT I SHALL SAY NO MORE ON THIS SUBJECT.

I hope you are all well, my eljay friends. I still read you almost-daily.

  • 12:08 @amgwn Tomorrow! I hope! #
  • 16:31 Blogged: Remember that show I explicitly decided against recapping? Resistance is futile. I'm recapping #Huge. bit.ly/aIsIqB #
  • 19:41 @aki_hearts_cake Are we definitively certain it's her. I mean, even if it's not I can still write about people thinking it is. #
  • 09:39 Possibly this is why the MIT Museum is closing at noon today? So very rad: Lady Gaga visiting MIT bit.ly/bA8mRZ #
  • 09:41 Marianne/@therotund and I recorded an Emergency Fatcast last night, & I have the sleep deprivation to prove it. HUGE: bit.ly/cyEuMU #
  • 09:45 @sparkymonster This is as flail-worthy as any news can ever be, it's true. #

  • 11:09 Uh, cool. How to DIY a cooling neck wrap: bit.ly/aorhc3 #
  • 11:33 Evidently last night I entered a shopping trance & ordered 3 (bargain-priced, at least) pairs of glasses. I only meant to buy sunglasses. #
  • 11:38 @Tabayag Not this time, though I've used Zenni. Glassyeyes.com has a coupon code for $20 off at 39dollarglasses. It snowballed from there. #
  • 12:04 Hey, I've got the Hot Picks on The Feminist Press website today! bit.ly/clcnxU (@redvinylshoes, you were one of my picks!) #
  • 17:53 If the masses of yellow-and-green-clad folks on the beach are any indication, I now live in Brazil. #
  • 19:06 I am shocked that people are shocked by this Dove casting call. Have folks never SEEN one of the "Real Women" ads? huff.to/ckz5O9 #
  • 19:08 Maybe I'm being unusually pessimistic, but I've yet to see a "Real Women" ad with anyone who looks like me. Unsurprised by the requirements. #
  • 19:14 @benbarryagency Ha! If only the ad said "seeking outspoken fatty prone to sarcasm and spontaneous twirling". #
  • 19:15 @BigGirlBlue Could be an outside agency, true. But still! Of course they want flawless skin -- less photoshopping to do later! Hee. #
  • 19:34 @lillianbehrendt DING DING DING! Precisely. #
  • 19:37 @grannyg_in_nz Sadly, in the US, Native Americans are frequently and unforgivably overlooked in most circumstances seeking "diversity". #
  • 20:28 There's no decent Cuban food & the cost of good produce is ridiculous, but if you need an excellent Itai sausage, the NoSho can HOOK you UP. #
  • 20:34 Are any of y'all going to be watching the premiere of Huge tonight? Trying to decide if it's worth liveblogging. #
  • 20:39 Durr, I meant liveTWEETING. Not blogging. #
  • 21:07 I'm kind of floored that they start this off with a giant crowd of fatties in swimwear. Floored in the BEST WAY POSSIBLE. #huge @abcfhuge #
  • 21:15 Oh good, there's an imitation Jillian Michaels. This show would have suffered without that. #huge #
  • 21:18 @stitchtowhere Yes! And there is a lot of it! And there are shirtless fat mens as well! #huge #
  • 21:24 Damn, I can tell that same story. #huge #
  • 21:32 I am cautiously impressed thus far. Lots of fat bodies (ROLLLLSSSSS!!), radical ideas, and funny bits. #huge #
  • 21:35 HELLO POIGNANT REALITY. Also rule by the prettiest & smallest. #huge #
  • 21:39 WAIT WHAT? A show with fat people on it MUST be accompanied by "healthy living" info on the website? #huge #
  • 21:43 Heaven forfend we should forget for a SINGLE MOMENT that fatties must be constantly obsessed with so-called "health". #huge #
  • 21:44 Damn y'all, this is so the fat version of My So-Called Life I longed for as a teenager. #huge #
  • 21:53 Do I sound like a dirty old lady if I note that the guy who plays Ian is srsly hot? #huge #
  • 22:03 And I guess the moral to the story so far is dieting sucks. Interesting, I guess. #huge #
  • 22:08 Overall I am kinda hopeful for this show. I doubt it's going to do much to criticize diet culture, but the fat visibility is amazing. #huge #
  • 22:09 @mimi_intheworld I'm finding it almost difficult to watch, just like MSCL as a teen. Same writer, though, so it's not surprising. #
