me and my vulture

Food /= Love. (Don't make me eat that.)

[PLEASE NOTE:  This entry was written before I accepted Health At Every SIze.  There are opinions in here that I no longer subscribe to, but I won't alter this post, because to pretend that I never had these opinions would be dishonest.  There is some inaccurate framing of fat issues, and some hurtful judging.  Be warned.]

My head is tired. By the end of the week, I'm usually pretty fried. Of course, now that I have shiny fast internets at home, you guys might start seeing Friday posts from me, so this may not be my last post this week.

Mind you, tomorrow's post will probably be nothing but pictures. Yay for the easy entry that isn't a meme.

I was minded to write about the "diet" book yesterday because I've been watching Style, TLC, and the Discovery Channels, and they all seem obsessed with fat people. In fact, everyone seems obsessed with fat people; there's Ruby, the show about a woman who at one point weighed 700 lbs, and Inside The Brookhaven Obesity Clinic on TLC about super-obese people in treatment, and a bunch of one-off shows about massively fat people, including one I wrote about called I Eat 33,000 Calories A Day.
