To girls with big tits!


I was not blessed with big boobs. I wasn't even blessed with medium-sized ones, unfortch. For anyone that knows me, this is no surprise - because I complain about it pretty frequently. I don't know if I would ever go the route of plastic surgery to "enhance" myself. In any event, it's not an option now anyway because I can't afford boobs on a student's salary (read = no salary).

Recently, however, I was introduced to a product that may very well be the non-surgical answer to all of my prayers...and to the prayers of all of you out there with similar woes.

I bring to you....TAKEOUTS.

For those of you that are not familiar with this type of product, it's also commonly known as the "chicken cutlet" for the boob. They're clear, smushy, realistic-feeling silicone inserts that you stick in your bra or bikini top, and voila - you're a full cup size bigger!

I'll admit, I was timid at first, and unsure as to whether I wanted to make this investment (ok, at under $50 it's not really an investment). I waited anxiously for Amazon to deliver my special package; but let me tell you - they were worth every penny. I'm not saying I'll wear them every day...but they are sure going to do the trick on a couple of shirts I own. They might have been so-so before, but they'll be so-so-amazing now!

What do you mean he don't eat no meat?

I think that I am in the midst of making a major life decision. I think...I may have become a vegetarian.

Anyone who reads this blog knows I am a pretty big animal-lover and animal-advocate. As a matter of fact, my dream job would be to do legal work for animal rights groups; but, alas, I need money first, so that dream will have to be put on the back burner for a while. Lately, however, I have been starting to think that I am a hypocrite - here I am, talking about how animals should no longer be considered property, how we need to be conscious of animals being treated cruelly, but I am enjoying a big juicy burger as much as the next person. What about that cow that gave its life so that meat could end up on my plate? Not just gave its life, but gave its life in a heart-wrenching manner. Oftentimes inhumanely. With that in mind, I think that I must, for the sake of my own beliefs, try to give up meat completely.

For sure, this will not be easy. In fact, several helpful vegetarian geared websites have encouraged a more of a "weaning off" approach to becoming a vegetarian, such as starting with eliminating meat just three days of the week for two weeks, then moving up to five days for two weeks, and so forth. However, I think that my love and respect for animals deserves a fair shot. So here I am...trying to embrace the veggies and fruits, legumes, and carbs - wish me luck!

Anyone taking over/under bets??

Clark, Audrey's frozen from the waist down.

Days like today, I want to pack up and move to Hawaii. Yesterday wasn't too bad because school was canceled, so I didn't have to brave the elements whatsoever. Except to shovel the front walk, but that was good exercise more than anything; but today, I had to go to class and go to work, in the midst of piles of dirty snow turned nice. Not so fun!

However, there was one really fun thing that made my day today - One True Media. You can go on this site, upload your pics, choose your song, and make your own video montage - totally free!! You can even make the montage into a DVD that you can order and purchase - what a great gift, especially if you've been in a friend's wedding, you can do this for her with the pictures you take at her wedding, and have it ready for her when she gets back from her honeymoon!

On another note, I recently just saw The Departed. I was really excited to see it because everyone I had spoken to who had seen it had great things to say about it. Plus, I really loved Goodfellas and Casino, and I was hoping for this movie to live up to the hype. I won't say that it sucked, but it was not nearly as good as I had hoped. Jack Nicholson's performance was typical old Jack - nothing special there from him. Damon and DiCaprio were both good, but not because the movie was good, but because they just take over a screen whenever they're on it. I'm usually a big fan of Mark Wahlberg (he'll always be Marky Mark to me...), but I have to admit that his performance here was utterly useless. In short, it did NOT have to be nearly three hours long (quasi-pun NOT intended); and after suffering through it, at least give me SOMETHING for my trouble besides an anti-climactic ending.

A positive anything is better than a negative nothing

I want to apologize for my hiatus. Although it has not been THAT long, it has felt like an eternity to me; but things seem to be picking up around here, and I am hoping and hopeful that they will continue to look up. So I promise some more substantial posts in the days to come, but I just wanted you all to know that I'm still here, still alive, still standing. Thank you sooo much for all your kind words of support!
