This week, a lot of good, ridiculous, interesting shit happened so I decided to do a quick rundown. Plus, I’m trying to do two entries so this is just to tide you over.
In no particular order:
This week, someone snapped a pic of a plate set at Macy’s. There were concentric circles drawn on the plate with the inner post circle labeled, “skinny jeans,” then, “favorite jeans,” and finally, “mom jeans.” Basically, the size of the meal was indicative of which jeans you were trying to fit into. Of course, white feminists took the opportunity to tweet the situation to hell and Macy’s responded by pulling the plates.
My thoughts: This didn’t even register on my meter. I wonder how we are going to raise well-adjusted children when trite things like this are what get us in a frenzy. It was clearly a joke and what’s more, it actually lends to common diet advice to watch the size of your plate if you are watching the size of your portions. The way I see it, if you don’t like the plates, frown in disgust and don’t buy them. The magic is that people who eat a lot won’t give a fuck that they are eating in the “mom jeans” range and people who eat frighteningly little won’t feel the need to eat out of the “skinny jeans” range.
Apparently, many Forever 21 shoppers received free samples of the new Atkins bar flavor, lemon something or other, in their order. Of course, that’s no big deal until someone who shops in the plus-size section receives a low-carb delicacy and takes to Twitter to let everybody know. Turns out, even “straight-size” customers received the bars but that’s not salacious enough, so….*shrug*
My thoughts: Atkins bars and candies are delicious but lemon? Yuck! Seriously, this is a new breed. People being upset about receiving free food is a new one to me. If I were a plus-sized shopper that was really that concerned about it, I might have first asked Forever 21 how they decided who did and didn’t get one and then weighed my option to blast them on Twitter. But, I must say I admire the courage of those who wear Forever 21 clothing. I’ve been in the store and the clothes look like they’ll be no-good after one wash.
He was reportedly found injured and in the fetal position in his cell this week causing speculation that he had attempted suicide. As of the 25th, the situation is still being investigated by jail officials.
My thoughts: I, for one, am glad to see a sexual predator who exploited dozens of teen girls send himself to his final judgment. I just want his client list first. He was selling it. Someone was buying it. He’s known to have rubbed elbows with the rich and powerful and I’m in favor of as many of the depraved as possible getting their just desserts. I’ll never cry over an abuser. Matter of fact, I’m in favor of public guillotine.
Trump allegedly tried to negotiate something for this rapper who went overseas and got in trouble. At first, Swedish officials were denying they ever spoke to Trump. Then, they let Trump know he wasn’t finna’ mess with the Swedish process of justice. As of yesterday, A$AP Rocky, who was at first just being held until an investigation was completed, was formally charged. So much for Trump calling. Trump did, however, tweet about the situation cause that’s his shizz.
My thoughts: The Swedish jail photos I saw were more like a dorm. I’m not familiar with this dollar sign person but it’s a good thing he wasn’t in China, or North Korea, or even the USA. If he can’t deal with that set up, IDK that he can withstand much. On that note, I feel like Trump overstepped. There are enough people wrongly incarcerated in this country for him to be worried about a wealthy rapper who may or may not be guilty. I guess he thought it’d get him points with “the African-Americans.”
He testified this week. He was asked if Trump was able to be charged of a crime once he leaves office. Mueller said yes.
My thoughts: This was actually the first time I heard Mueller speak (no, I didn’t watch the press conference). His voice surprised me. It was more…feeble than I expected. I always pictured that someone who was in charge of finding fuckery receipts and spilling fuckery tea on a sitting president and his homies would have a more booming voice. Anywho, I wasn’t shocked. Now, I’m just waiting on Trump to try to enact a rule that ends term limits since he can’t be indicted while in office. Leave it to him to get out of trouble by riding the presidency until his final chariot comes to get him.
