It’s Tuesday (in the States at least; Tuesday has just about been and gone here in Aus!), which means there’re more books being released as I type.
I’m about to settle in with my brand spanking (ha!) new copy of Cara Bristol’s Domestic Discipline book False Pretenses. Then I’ll probably spend some more time browsing the very excellent Loose Id’s very excellent website to see what else I might want to buy!
My computer is not working properly at all. I think the internet was faster when I had dial-up more than a decade ago. And it definitely didn’t disconnect every five minutes like it’s doing now!
I’m having a lot of trouble getting onto some sites, which means I haven’t answered a bunch of messages. It’s not on purpose!
Something I’ve come across more and more on the internet recently:
I wish people would stop saying only bigger women are “real” women.
I’m pretty damn thin. Does that make me a man?!
I just don’t get why there has to be so much nastiness – especially on so-called “body positive” blogs. Apparently the positivity only works for one body type. It truly is possible to be positive about more than one thing at once. Unfortunately nobody – in the fashion industry, on the internet, anywhere – seems to remember that. In the last week I stopped following a few blogs because there was such cruel stuff being said about women who look just like me. Two wrongs don’t make a right!
Those “eat a sandwich” comments people throw around so easily (and have bled into so many “plus-sized heroine” erotic romance books)? What’s the point in them? They’re bitchy. I promise you, I may not be a big person, but there’s been no shortage of sandwiches in my life!
