USC O-lineman Jeff Byers (who’s had a season-ending injury, albeit a much less serious one, of his own).
Not bad advice for the rest of us either
And he gets rid of that fugly facial hair in a few eps? Whoa.
See, told ya Kristin was good for somethin.
2. Second reference to Terrence Cody’s size I’ve come across today. Lol.
Pep Talk: You don’t have to be happy all the time. If you’re just not feeling it, that’s fine. It can be worth it to be relentlessly positive, but yeah, it can also be pretty fucking exhausting. So if today you’re feeling like, “fuck. everything.” you can indulge in whatever emotion you want. *It’s your life, fucker.*
Today remind yourself: Only if I want to.

Leggings (as pants!!!): Target
I wanted to be chic and comfortable and I really was. I also want to end this nonsense on whether or not leggings are pants. They have two legs and a waist opening. They are pants. Let’s not be so concerned with what other people are wearing!!! Remember when we were little and wore Burger King crowns and thought we were royalty and our mom’s weren’t all like “you’re not a princess because that is made of cardboard”!??! Remember? Wear what you want, call it what you want and make yourself happy. Once you follow your bliss, everything can happy. That’s when the real opportunity starts. So I wore my running pants as real pants. I threw on shades, a cool jacket and some stillettos. And I felt like a million dollars!!
First, let me say I think this is a fabulous flight outfit and I love the booties with the leggings and the trench. Jessica TOTALLY pulls it off.
Second, I LOVE the reasoning behind the wearing leggings as pants and wearing what you want, etc., etc.
But, because I’m weirdly passionate about this issue, I have to argue that two legs and a waist opening does not equal pants. Pantyhose have two legs and a waist opening and I better not see anyone walking around with only their sheer nylons on. That’s the problem with trying to wear leggings as pants - they don’t always offer the same (necessary) coverage as pants. Sometimes they look super hot. Sometimes they look a little too much like pantyhose - just without a dress or skirt to help the wearer leave anything to the imagination.
I’m not unequivocally opposed to wearing leggings as pants, a la Jessica, because sometimes, it just works. Not only works, but rocks, and in the comfiest way imaginable. But just because they might be serving as pants, they’re still leggings.
And no, I don’t know why I care so much that I just took five minutes out of my life - not for the first time - to argue the point b/c like the original post says, Wear What You Want!!
It’s not like there are that many more precautions for H1N1 than for “regular” flu - it’s just a different strain.
Later in the story, Turner says students are at high risk because they “tend to socialize in large groups, frats, bars” and are “densely packed into parties which are all breeding grounds for infections.”
Ok. I’ll give him that.
But what the hell are people supposed to do? Voluntarily quarantine themselves and lead solitary, sanitary, hermetically-sealed lives?
Keep reminding people of the basics (which we should all be doing anyway) but stop trying to make this into a terrible emergency before it hits that point.
Wash your hands. Keep them to yourself. Don’t share drinks, cigarettes, lipstick. Don’t stop belieeeeeeving.
*Exception: Clips from The Daily Show, etc., or clips of sporting events I missed, or from The View, etc. when something scandalous happens live
…because I can read/skim/scan and get the relevant info and get the fuck on with my life way faster than anyone can explain it to me in a video that first must load and play pretty intro music/graphics.
I have too much to do to sit around and watch a video about the top fall trend or the number one must-have or must-do or the celebrity who _____. If it’s something that can be presented in a very straightforward manner, in print, quick & dirty, that’s the version I want. That’s all I have time for. Especially since my internet at home is really slow.
- Don’t answer your phone if you do not recognize the number
- Start your days with a half a bagel and a tall glass of ice water. Then get your coffee.
- Walk as frequently as possible, especially when you don’t feel like it.
- Know who your enemies are.
- After 23, being “that girl” at a party is not cute. Again, drink a glass of water and shut the fuck up.
- Know your worth. Powerful women know what their rate is. If you lowball someone on your fee, they will pay you that fee AND think you are an idiot. Aim high. You can always readjust your rate later.
- Debt will not disappear if you ignore it. It gets worse and worse and worse and then you can’t buy a house some day when you have the money. Contact the people you owe money to and explain your situation. They are surprisingly willing to work with you.
- Cable television is a siphon on your life and your wallet.
- Walk with purpose at all times. If you look confident, people won’t ask you questions. This sometimes requires you to drink before you walk.
- Don’t be a nervous talker. Chitchat is for the playground.
- Learn to read people’s faces. It’s invaluable in social situations and the work place.
- You teach people how to treat you. I learned this from Oprah. If someone thinks they can push you around, react in a way that informs them they can’t.
- Say “yes” as frequently as possible.
- When in doubt, drink a glass of chardonnay over ice and take a quarter of a Xanax bar
