No bueno, Bored Panda

Well this is distressing:
Copied from a friend about boredpanda.com:
"I want to talk to everyone about a website called BoredPanda, many of you share their "articles" that show you 10 cats who prove if they fits they sits or 10 best grilled cheese sandwiches, or whatever. Recently they posted one called 10 before and after photos of trans people or something to that effect. The photos featured in the article were not given to them, but hijacked from private forums on the internet. A close friend of mine gathered together her forces for good and got them to take it down but that's only part of the issue solved. BoredPanda put those people's lives and livelihood at risk to get more clicks without any thought to the risk they were putting those people in (in case you didn't know Trans people are randomly assaulted or threatened regularly just for existing). They didn't get permission from the human beings whose photos were used. Let that sink in. They are currently hiding behind ToS rules of other web sites so they can't be sued directly.
Here is what you should be doing about this;
1. Write to bored panda and demand that in the future they get a signed model release before using photos that may put someone at risk.
2. stop linking their articles
3. stop clicking on their articles.
4. share this sentiment or post in whatever way suits you best."

Friday Five

(questions via [community profile] thefridayfive)

1) What is the most outrageous style you've ever rocked?

When I was a young 'un, there was that brief period when shell suits were incredibly fashionable, but before they had been discovered to be ridiculously dangerously flammable, and we had a non-uniform day at school. Every single other person in my class came in a shell suit. Some of them had those colour change t-shirts that showed your armpit sweat even worse than grey marl does. I wore cut-off denim hot pants, fishnet tights, an Alice Cooper t-shirt and a leather biker jacket.

I think that tells you everything you need to know about my attitude to fashion.


2) As a teen, were you an emo, goth, punk, grunger, or prep?

Um. I never could be bothered with the make-up requirements for goth, but I suspect I tended more that way in other respects, with bits of punk and grunger too. I mean, I never did do the blue stonewash jeans classic rocker look, I always wore black and purple.


3) Have you ever had a crazy hairstyle/colour?

Ever since I was 18 right up until the present. I'm normally one or more of blue, purple, or pink, but I've been other colours too. Went jet black once; didn't like it.


4) Do you think we ever really grow out of our teen selves?

I certainly haven't. But then I was quite elderly in outlook from about the age of 18 months, so... (this is possibly down to the autism, which obvs was undiagnosed when I was a young 'un.


5) Is there any fashion style you wish you could wear but maybe don't have the confidence?

It's not the confidence, it's the tolerance for pain. I wish I could wear halter neck tops, but my boobs are so heavy that they give me horrific neck ache within seconds of putting them on.

Ever since I came across Miss Havisham in Great Expectations, I have adored an eccentric older woman. I am huge fans of the fashionable ladies of Advanced Style, and my Grandma is my style guru. My Grandma adorns herself in sequins, feather headbands, a defiant red beret. She has a beautiful hat collection, and she once refused to stand for the national anthem in a society group of southern women because she was disgusted with the way the world is going. She said, "I couldn't get on my knee, but I got as close as I could." I have several recent senior ladies that have been added to my "How to Live" list.

My first new obsession is with Barbara Cartland. I had never heard of her until I was searching something random on Ebay, and I came across one of the photos in this post. I was immediately curious about this over the top character. Anyone that has portraits like this done with their dog is a friend of mine. She wrote romance novels, and he was one of the most prolific authors. She was in the Guinness Book of World Records for selling over 1,000 million books. She campaigned for the rights of gypsies to have a place to live and be educated. Her novels focused on virgins who "were only allowed to go to bed if they were married...but its all very wonderful and moonbeams." She was organic before it was cool and wrote several books on vitamins. She obviously was a fan of the color pink, and she kept a pink rug in her car for guests traveling to her home in case they got cold. (Find more about her
here or here where I took this information from) I put a biography about her on my Christmas list so I will report back with some more fun facts about her after I read that in the new year. I'm also planning ordering one of these perfect portraits of her on Ebay because I need to look on her every day for inspiration. Here is another excellent blog post on her over at Messy Nessy. Is it too much if I buy this doll of her?  I think Dame Cartland would approve considering her love of knick knacks.

 She kind of reminds me of this woman named Ginger (below) we met on a house tour in Natchez, Mississippi. She collects the most over the top costume jewels. Her husband works to help deck their house out every Christmas, and we took a tour of it during the holidays called The Jeweled Christmas where they display and decorate for the holidays with their collection. I highly recommend the tour. You're not supposed to take photos, but my rebel husband did snap a few. Here's one (below) to give you an idea of what you're missing out on. Even if you can't make it at Christmas, you can tour their house, and she apparently has some over the top other collections on display outside of the Christmas season. She was the first woman president of the American Quarter Horse Association

 If you're looking for beauty advice, here are some wonderful tips from 76 year old Valerie Von Sobel.  My favorite quote from this Youtube video of her is, "I think real confidence definitely comes with age.  You really kind of don’t give a damn and so you are more authentic in the breadth and the width of what you want to do with yourself."

I may keep these posts with senior ladies I find inspiring once a week now or every few weeks any way.  I've got some more in mind to cover for future posts.  Speaking of weekly posts I'll also be bringing back (from my other blog), the lists of my Google Searches for the week for your perusal. I tend to use Google as a search engine, doctor, and therapist so some of these will be quite bizarre at times.  

1.  Can you become addicted to smelling essential oils?
2.  Why do I break out so badly in the summer? 
3.  Eat something super sweet and mouth tingles
4.  Alaffia Coconut Toner

Bebopping around YT when I should be getting ready for bed. Sunday night bluuuues. I like this channel "Facts" where Irish people try stuff and it's usually funny but they couldn't be funny when watching My 600 Pound Life. I admit to following that show. I feel for those who struggle, root for those who are busting ass to try to fix their lives and get frustrated at the ones that thrive on the drama and sabotage themselves.

Anyway, it must be the first ever YT video where the comments section is a breath of fresh air. Overwhelming support and love and the woman from the show actually commented and is touched! I also found her Instagram page and WOW, she looks so much healthier.

I'm following her on IG now because hey, if she can get herself healthy starting at over 650 pounds, I can do it at a little over 200 (though without gastric surgery in my case - she obviously needed the surgical help)

Equal time for kitties

Another sweet video - chef Bobby Flay and his kitty Nacho Flay

Wouldn't have pegged him as a cat dude but you can't always tell!

As far as a me update, still hitting the gym with Emily. Hoping sometime that I'll have less random soreness on and off through the day but doing well otherwise. I must have pretty strong biceps since I had to up the weight pulldown machine to 60 pounds to feel adequate resistance around the 10 count mark. However other muscles need more work and I've been able to identify those (triceps, core, glutes, quads) so I can work on them. I've also done a mile each time I do the treadmill the last few days which is good. Still keeping an eye out for a convenient yoga class to get good stretching in but I should try to fit in some yoga stretches at home. 

I made some strawberry lemon freezer jam today - my first attempt at freezer jam that I can recall. It didn't firm up as much as I'd hoped but the taste is amazing so I won't fret about it being a bit thin. It'll still taste awesome on toast. 

Starting next Sunday I'm doing a vegetarian challenge to focus on the eating again and enjoy fresh summer produce. I'll make a post soon on the LJ Healthystart community if anyone wants to join in. It's vegetarian rather than vegan so eggs and dairy are permitted (though check those cheeses!)

Hope everyone is doing well *huggles*
