I thought this was interesting.

I feel as if there is some grain of truth to this.  He was actually talking about why he doesn’t want to get a smart phone for his kids but then he goes on to talking about loneliness and sadness and virtual life.  I thought it was interesting.

Size 6 is “fat?”

20130315-164841.jpg

I saw this post on Facebook today. I have two thoughts on this post.

First, good for H&M for using normal size mannequins in the store and or advertising. It’s about time someplace not The Dress Barn is using a more accurate body shape to advertise it’s clothes. It’s about time. More than 50% of the world has more body mass (being muscle or fat) and its about time those women are represented in fashion other than for a plus sized store.

Secondly, at my thinnest, in highschool I was a size 8. When I got married my wedding dress was a size 10. Now I’m in a size 10/12. I guess, by fashion standards, I’ve been fat all my life. Well fashion can kiss my normal ass.

Enough said. I th

Happy/ Sad news

People may or may not know about me that i am a royal watcher.  i watched Diana, i watched william and noW I watch Kate.  i am enamored of them both but am especially fascinated by gate.  She is so beautiful, stylish and married to a cutie.  I  was in a patient room today and I saw on the news that Kate was pregnant!  I am really excited and happy for them!

I suspected this due to recent pictures of her that have been coming to my inbox via the Duchess Kate blog. She did change her hair but her face was looking just  a little bit fuller for several weeks now.

It is estimated that she is a little under 12 weeks and the announcement was made when Kate had to be hospitalized with hyperemesis gravidium. (Extreme morning sickness). She fell ill at her parents house and they took her to the hospital.  She is expected to be there several days with several days of rest at home after discharge. It is thought she may have multiples because Hyperemesis Gravidium happens more frequently in multiples pregnancys due to the increased HCG.

I am so excited for them!  Congratulations William and Kate!!

Because of the  hoax by those stupid austrailian radio personalities…..  the sad news

Hospital Nurse found dead.

William and Catherine are saddened by the news.

“Bath Salts”

On May 26, a 31-year-old man stripped a homeless person naked under a highway overpass and attempted to eat his victim’s face for minutes until police shot the suspect dead. However, not before he devoured three-fourths of his fleshy feast. (I have seen pictures) Officers investigating the Miami, Florida incident say that they believe bath salt use could have played a role, and less than a month after that episode, similar accounts have been reported.

Bath Salts have also been linked to two Harris County Texas deaths. A 46-year-old Jersey Village man, known to abuse bath salts, was found outside a northwest Harris County business hanging upside down from a piece of coiled razor wire above a chain link fence with a gash above his right wrist. It is believed he bled to death.

 

Bath salts. From what I’ve heard about them they are some serious shit, but I didn’t know exactly what they were so I decided to do some research for myself. On the street this drug is called “Ivory Wave,” “Purple Wave,” Vanilla Sky,” and “Bliss”. The products have been outlawed many states, but it’s still possible to purchase them online. Sites such as ivory-wave dot com and Bath salts direct dot com are still up and running. People have been arrested for purchasing bath salts online.

Bath salts are presumed to be methylenedioxypyrovalerone. This is a is a psychoactive drug with stimulant properties which acts as a norepinephrine-dopamine reuptake inhibitor (NDRI). MDPV is the 3,4-methylenedioxy ring-substituted analog of the compound pyrovalerone, developed in the 1960s, which has been used for the treatment of chronic fatigue and as an anorectic, but caused problems of abuse and dependence.
