"You're So Fat!"

Why do people resort to saying this to others? Have they never heard of an eating disorder? Do they not realize that stupid comments like that can CAUSE eating disorders? It's just an unnecessary comment to say and there are other ways of going about telling someone they are gaining weight. Calling someone "fat" or "pudgy" or "tubzoid" doesn't help an overweight person magically become thin.

I'm writing this now because my mom just thought it would be a wonderful thing to tell me that I eat too much and that I am twice her size. Again. I have been trying to lose weight and you think comments like that help? They don't and I wouldn't consider myself to be obese and my doctor said that I just needed to lose about 10 lbs and I'd be fine. My mom can't help but judge others on their weight because she used to be a "fat child" and she just happens to get a kick out of other peoples weight issues because now she's skinny. But calling your daughter who has tried every way possible to lose weight these past few months is just hitting below the belt and uncalled for.

The things most adults say to us as children stick with us as well. Now this isn't the first time a family member or a person has called me fat. It's really sad but I can count a hundred different times and places in which people have called me fat throughout my lifetime. 

1. When I was 6 some kid pushed me off the swing at school and told me that "ugly fat girls" weren't allowed to play on the swings. I wasn't even a fat kid but that still hurt me at the time.

2. My grandmother to this day still critiques my eating habits and how "her diabetic friends don't eat like me" yeah maybe because your friends are 80+ years old and have type 2 diabetes, not type 1 so that means their eating habits will be different than mine. ALL diabetics don't eat the same.

3. One time my grandmother thought it would be fun to laugh at how fat I was at a restaurant when her 2 friends joined us at the table. "My granddaughter needs to lose some weight and stop eating all of the time!" Her friends agreed with her despite the fact that I was eating a crouton-less salad.

4. In middle school I gained a little weight due to depression. Girls would call me fat on a regular basis. I have always been a nail biter and in class one day because I was nervous about my presentation I started biting my nails which caused someone to loudly ask "If I had enough to eat for lunch." Yeah, that's hilarious. Want to know what else is hilarious? That this girl is now living in her best friends garage because she got kicked out of the house for stashing some drugs. She hasn't gained weight, but that's probably because she's on the highly illegal substance diet!

5. My grandmother once invited all of the family to dinner at her house. She is not a fine cook and family gatherings are always hell. We were all trying to choke down her overdone spaghetti and I kept drinking my water and nibbling on some bread when my grandmother goes "Why don't you quit eating fattening bread? God you're so big for your age, no wonder why!" I got mad, stood up, and ended up walking home in a snowstorm trying not to cry.
6. My ex- stepfather once told me that compared to his friends daughters I was an "embarrassment" and that I should "lose some weight" so he could be proud.

7. Me and my friend went to the basketball court one day and ended up seeing a lot of people from school there. One guy who dropped out said that "Compared to >my friend< I was fat and needed to lose weight to look sexy like her." Oh. Forgive me for not standing up to your 16 year old opinion of what sexy is.

8. My "friend" in high school always remarked on how flabby my arms were and that I should lift weights so they can be "toned" like hers.

9. Another one of my "friends" in high school who sat behind me in class kept telling me that I wasn't as thin as her (Obviously! But why does she have any reason to care about this?) and that I needed to drink more water to lose weight. The hell.

10. In 6th grade the guy I kind of liked started making fun of my weight to his friends. I started throwing up after that. It lasted about 5 days until my teacher found me in the bathroom and told me to "knock that shit off" and had a talk with me. She may have saved my life.

11. In high school one guy (who was a complete ass) during drama class called me fat. I have had enough experience with being called fat in my lifetime thanks to so many wonderful people, so now I had something to say back. I forgot what I said but it ended up with him saying that "I'm still fat" and that "Nobody would ever want a fat girl like me." Again, this was in drama class, the one place I always felt confident.

12. My mom has been calling me fat ever since my freshmen year. She always looks at me and gives me a once over (looks at me from head to toe to head) and insists that "I need to start exercising more for health and weight purposes" and so "I won't gain anymore weight." She asks me every week how much weight I lost/gained. I don't know. You are a sorry excuse of a human being to ask your daughter this. Toxic parenting is what I call it.

There are more stories but those are the 12 I can think of right now. It's pretty terrible to call someone fat. I hate it and wish you would all just stop obsessing over other peoples weight and worry about yourself. I know I'm not a 100 pound beach blonde. I have a way to go before I will be 120 again. However I would just like to point out that I am happy with who I am personality wise. Yes, I could lose some weight but there are more important things in the world than fitting into a size zero dress. This is a reminder out there to those who may have forgotten it; think about what you say before you say it. Check yourself before you wreck yourself. Don't be a jerk. Don't say hurtful and stupid things. Mind your own business when it comes to how other people looks. None of us are 100% comfortable with ourselves, anyone who says otherwise is lying. Live a happy and healthy life for yourself, not just to please others or to get others to like you. You are better than that. Anyone who has a problem with you because you don't have the body size of Malibu Barbie or that one wrestler-turned-actor guy is not worth your time and effort.


I am not naming names but let's just say that I am not the only person in the world who commented about Oscar fashions. I'm almost positive a lot of people have blogged about that topic because obviously whoever watched the red carpet or the show know that "fashion" is bound to be talked about for days afterwards. Let's face it, fashion is a popular topic after celebrity events such as this.

Now it's one thing to have the same opinion as someone else, it's entirely different to copy and paste word for word what another person has wrote and then play it off as your own. That is called PLAGIARISM and that is exactly what happened to me. I was trying to find another picture of one of the girl's dresses because blogger wasn't showing the picture and somehow on Google I came across a blog post about Oscar fashion that looked incredibly similar to mine. It took me a few seconds before I realized "Oh this IS mine but it's NOT my blog." I'm the only person I know who would post 3 photos to Helena Bonham Carter wearing the same outfit and give Quvenzhané Wallis 2nd best dressed just because of her rocking puppy purse and just because I am a huge Helena fan and am crazy like that. 

I post days later a lot of the time because I do have a tendency to forget to press 'publish' sometimes. If you think people will judge you because you posted one or two days later about some stupid event then you either need to find new readers or post a half assed version of what you think about the event because stealing my work is not okay with me.

True, this is the internet, things are bound to be stolen a lot of the time and because I don't have legal stuff to back up that I am the original owner of my words, there is nothing I can do except be flattered that someone felt the need to give themselves credit for work that isn't there's. Truly, I am upset but mostly flattered because I never realized that my posts were worth stealing! I'm sure there are at least 10 grammatical errors in everything I write but power to the thief who thinks it's worth copying! 

I'm not going to quit writing though. One thief is not enough to make me want to quit blogging. I'm not afraid of a thief. I don't post a lot of my ideas online for this reason. I'm trying to write a novel and until that novel is a published piece of work I'm sorry to say that I will not be sharing my story ideas with you. I'm not saying that any of you reading this right now are capable of doing something like this, most of you out there have lives of your own so copying and pasting another persons blog posts word for word would just be silly. But obviously it can happen and I just want to be a bit more cautious. Stealing sentences and pictures in an obvious copy and paste way is stupid and will hopefully hurt this person later on in life when they decide that Perez Hilton is an unknown blogger. 

To be clear, I'm not writing this blog for anyone else; I'm writing it for me. And this is my story, not yours. Go out and tell your own.

Oscar Fashions and Favorites

As promised here are my favorite fashions of the night!
Truly I thought that everyone looked beautiful. White and black seemed to be the stand out colors of the night.

Adele looked so pretty! She's been wearing a lot of black to these award shows but honestly I think this was her best dress.I also thought the one she wore while performing Skyfall was gorgeous.

Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta. She looked so beautiful and happy to be there!

Samantha Barks. I thought she could have worn something a bit more flashy but this dress just works for her.

Octavia Spencer in Tadashi Shoji. If I ever ended up on the red carpet I would pay Tadashi Shoji to make my dress. I have never seen a bad dress designed by him.

Naomi Watts in Armani. Naomi Watts is the only person who can pull this dress off, end of story.

I know people either love or hate this dress but I am one of the few who loved it. I have never seen Kidman pull off a bad dress after her terrible red bow one.

Louise Roe. I have no idea who she is but I love the dress.

Jessica Chastain. Liked her 2012 dress better but this one was pretty as well. The color worked nicely with her pale skin tone and because I'm pale as well, I have to give her a ton of credit for even thinking of this color to wear considering I would have never thought it would look nice with pale skin people like us. But she totally rocked it!

I loved her dress. LOVED IT. I have no idea why she has been on every worst dressed list, this looked truly stunning on her and was my favorite that she has worn.
Jennifer Lawrence
Jennifer Lawrence. I was wondering at first how she was going to sit down in that dress but she managed- until she fell but she handled that really well too. Beautiful dress and it had the right person in it to pull it off.
 Quvenzhané Wallis
Quvenzhané Wallis in Armani Junior. Totally appropriate dress for the 9 year old. But instead of the dress I would like to point out her purse. It's a puppy! How awesome is that!!! I am giving her 2nd best dressed just because of the awesome purse.

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck. First and foremost I thought that they were the best looking couple of the night by far. The color of Garner's dress looks outstanding on her. I'm not sure what color that is, it's not plum and it's not magenta. But whatever color it is it is definitely Jennifer's.

In my opinion Catherine is the most beautiful person to ever exist so anything she wears will automatically be a hit for me.

Gloria Reuben. The dress really stood out to me. One of my favorites of the night.

Norah Jones looks flawless in this dress. A+!

Helena Bonham-Carter can't win in these "fashion police" peoples eyes. She pulls something out of her closet at the last minute and gets slammed for her look. She wears a designer dress and get slammed for her look. I love her no matter what she wears. And guess what? She could care less about your opinion on her wardrobe! She always stays true to herself.
< This is Helena's "Do you really think I care" face.
By the way, everyone who likes Helena probably knows this but I found it hilariously neat that the dress she wore to the Oscar's was the same one she wore to the Great Expectations premiere. See;
< Again, she is not caring about your opinion on her style.

My favorite of the night;

Sally Field in Valentino. When I say that she stood out I mean she REALLY stood out in a good way. During the Oscar's when the camera went to the audience you knew exactly where she was because of this dress.

The Worst

Reese Witherspoon's Hair was gorgeous
I don't hate it! I really don't. However the people on the carpet kept going on and on about how gorgeous the dress was and how hard her hair must have taken hours to do. No. I love Reese but the hair and dress weren't all that and a bag of chips.

Renee Zellweger. Not a fan of this look.

Jacki Weaver. Very nice person but the dress reminded me of Christmas. I think that there should be a rule that says no silky red dresses on the red carpet.

Naomie Harris aka Bond Girl. The slit up the side was just too much.

I think that I am the only one who hated this look. It's not horrible but Halle has the body to pull off anything and I was just disappointed that she chose this.

Zoe Saldana. The dress was alright, just too busy. I think if she ditched the belt it could work.

Kelly Osbourne
Kelly Osbourne. The dress looks like it is strangling her.

It hurts me to put her on here, it does. I love Anne Hathaway but Anne, we could see your nipples and that's not cool. The back of the dress was alright. In her defense I know she picked it out 3 hours before the carpet because  she knew Seyfried was wearing a similar styled dress as she was going to wear. But whatever, she won the award so who cares what she was wearing? It's not like it was a life or death choice.

Brandi Glanville. The only reason anyone would wear something like this is for negative attention, which for some, is better than none at all. What to say about her?

By the way Seth Macfarlane was a great host and those whoever keeps complaining about him need to stop getting so defensive. I had no idea who he was before the show even began but later learned he does Family Guy which is a show I can't stand. However I thought the show was entertaining the entire night and if people wanted to see painfully terrible hosting they should have seen Queen Latifah host the 2011 Peoples Choice Awards.

^Compare and then get back to me on how Macfarlane was a suck host. Much better than the Hathaway/Franco show as well.

Favorite Moments of the Night:
-Shirley Bassey  went onstage and sang 'Goldfinger’ to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film. She was fantastic, actually, she was more than fantastic. I don't think that there is a word to describe how incredible her performance was. I think she must be in her 70's by now and if she can still sing like that at that age, she is going to live forever. 
-Ang Lee is the coolest dude ever. 

- However Ben Affleck's improvised speech kind of beat Ang Lee's.
- Anne Hathaway's speech was heartbreaking too.
- Daniel Day Lewis jokes with Meryl Streep who presented the award to him; "“It’s a strange thing because three years ago, before we decided to do a straight swap, I had actually been committed to play Margaret Thatcher.” 
- This was my absolute favorite part of the night by far, a tribute to musicals! I put a video of Catherine Zeta Jones up here but youtube took it down so now we're stuck with a sped up version of the performance. But after 11 years please note that she is still a fantastic Velma Kelly.

-Jennifer Hudson also sang a rendition of And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going, which was not as good as when she sang it in the movie. It was a bit too screechy and she did too much when she didn't need to. 

One thing I did not understand though and will probably get flamed about this later; why was Michelle Obama  at the Oscar's? Sure she was invited, but why? I don't understand. I would say this about any political figure being at the Oscar's though so no, I'm not bashing anyone who likes Obama I'm just curious as to why Michelle was such a necessary addition to the show and why they didn't just have Jack Nicholson present it.

Sunday and Oscars!

Today is Sunday, Sunday, stabbing my ears on Sunday! I can't tell if this was supposed to be a joke or not but it had me laughing the first time I saw it. Actually I'm still laughing at it! I know a lot of people who are Christian and go to church, I'm sure that they apologize for this monstrosity! And because of this song we will now always remember that nothing rhymes with orange. XD I loved reading some of the comments to this video, they made my day.

But beside that little video reminding us what day it is, tonight the Oscars also come on! I have never been huge on award shows because half of the time the movies I see don't get nominated. However, this year I have been excited as heck for the Oscars!

Disney Misconceptions!

Lately I have noticed a lot of people get their Disney facts wrong and because I would consider myself a big Disney fan I thought I would make a post about it so these sad souls can learn.

1. Someone on my Facebook recently posted this;
"Anastasia is my fave. Disney princess!" What? NO. Anastasia is not Disney unless we are talking about Cinderella's evil step sister but even then Anastasia is not a princess! Anastasia is a Grand Duchess from a 20th CENTURY FOX MOVIE. You want to know why you never see her in any of the Disney parks? Maybe because she's not Disney!!! You want to know what else isn't Disney?

Warner Brothers!

Universal Studios! (the first one anyways. I'm not sure what company produced the 100 other sequels but I'm almost positive it wasn't Disney.)

New Line Cinema!

Warner Brothers. Great film by the way and hopefully I can watch and review this soon. And all of the people drowned!!! 

Another one from 20th Century Fox!

Warner Brothers/ Don Bluth Entertainment. Don Bluth made a ton of movies that are not Disney.

Warner Brothers!

Warner Brothers!

DreamWorks Pictures! 


Dreamworks! It even says so on the poster, how can you get this wrong?!?!?

Lionsgate! But as of now the franchise for the movies has been taken over by Universal Studios which in my opinion was a stupid idea. I loved Barbie as much as the next girl but I swear if you thought that these movies were by Disney I have every right to punch you in the face.

Get your childhood right kids!

2. Speaking of non-Disney princesses I am not understanding why some of the Disney heroins are considered to be princesses. In the store you will see a box of dolls that say "Disney Princesses" on them, yet Pocahontas is included. She never married a prince nor did she ever MEET a prince. She was a daughter to a chief. That is it. How is she a princess?

You want to know who else isn't a princess? Mulan. Mulan didn't marry royalty, she married Shang who is a military general! Although if she was a princess she would easily be the most badass one there is.

Giselle from Enchanted is also not a princess. She may look and act like one but she didn't marry the prince thus making her a non-princess.

You want to know what I think? If someone wants to make a set up of Disney princesses I think they should do it right and not add characters just because they are popular. There should be a princess set and a heroine set. Not just a set that includes some princesses and some heroines. That is not right. If you want to add another princess add Eilonwy from The Black Cauldron. She may not be popular (I doubt 90% of you have even heard of her) but she has earned her title. Oh and since Star Wars has been taken over by Disney now, Leia needs a place as well. 

3. "You can meet every character is at Disney World!"- Oh yeah, what about Kida? I've never seen her at Disney World! Granted I live nowhere near Florida but if anyone has ever met her I'd like to know!

Or Pacha and Yzma from The Emperors New Groove. I've never seen them there either.

I know a lot of the rare characters are usually at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party in October but never the less that does not mean that they are regularly seen characters that you can find whenever you go to Disney.

Pain and Panic from Hercules

The Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland

Maleficent at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party 2012
Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty

Jane Porter from Tarzan. Let me tell you I am not happy that she's not a regular. She has always been my favorite Disney character!

So no, you cannot meet "all the Disney characters" you can only meet 97% of them unless it is during October.

4. "The Jungle Book is the only old Disney film that had NO SONGS in it!" Oh really? 

I do think that these are songs!

5. "Jack Sparrow isn't Disney!!!"
Neither is Anastasia but that doesn't seem to stop some of you from thinking she is a princess! FYI Sparrow is Disney. See the top of the poster below!

In conclusion I just wanted to get all of this out there. The next time someone says any of the following lies and seems like they know what they are talking about, direct them to this blog to show them how WRONG they are. I swear if I have to tell one more person that Don Bluth is a person who also did animation, I am not going to be too pleased!
