I’m Just Sayin’

A year ago I took a Blog Triage class to spif up my blog.  One of the assignments was to set up some Google Alerts on relevant key words/phrases.  I completed the assignment and set up my mail tool so they would go directly to their own folder and not clog up my inbox.  And promptly forgot all about them until some of them came up in a mail search yesterday.  Wow!  There’s some interesting stuff out there!   I could go to a place of what I might have missed; instead I remember one of my current mantras, a quote from The Matrix: 

“Hello, Neo.  You’re right on time.”

Gather.com has some posts about the Lane Bryant Ad that FOX and ABC have refused to air because it is deemed too racy.  I especially like the comments that there is more cleavage weekly on “Dancing With The Stars”.

Cleavage seems to be a popular topic this week.  In response to a quote from a n Iranian prayer leader that the increasing incidence of earthquakes is caused by women dressing immodestly, Jen McCreight suggested Boobquake.  The idea is for women to wear their most cleavage-revealing  outfit on April 26th to disprove the assertion.   The original suggestion may have been a little tongue-in-cheek, but the Facebook event has almost 162,000 attending and another 51,000 as  “maybe”s.  I think I’ll probably dress in my usual Boulder casual, but it made me think.

Finally, in perhaps the most disturbing story, Us Magazine resports that Jillian Michaels, one of the trainers on the Biggest Loser,  wants to adopt a child because “I can’t handle doing that [pregnancy] to my body”.   Ironically, this story appears under a “Healthy Lifestyle” heading.   Hmmmm….

Are you kidding me? (About what Jillian Michaels said?) Oh the world really has gone to the froot loops hasn’t it?

BTW – love this blog and I’m glad I found it through Boobquake and Twitter!

Thanks, Terilynn!

It’s OK: if a froot-loop does not want to reproduce, don’t encourage them.
There’s plenty of people already.
