Have you all seen this monstrosity? Heidi unveiled to the world her new bikini body sometime this week. At best, I think she looks just a weeee bit out of proportion.
At worst, she has been cited saying she can no longer run because her new fake boobs make it too painful. She also can’t give hugs because it hurts too much!
Seriously, when did we as a society become so obsessed with looks that we began sacrificing bodily functionality to achieve the “perfect” body. Being unable to give hugs? That’s nuts!
And, where the heck did that idea of perfect come from? Because it is messed up.
To make sure I wasn’t the only one thinking that, I took an informal poll of some of my guy friends. Some of their responses:
“Barbie boobs, they in no way, shape, or form look real.”
“Unless you are making a living off those things you look stupid.”
“If you have boobs that big you are an attention whore.”
I know I would much rather have a strong, capable body than look “perfect.” But hey, maybe that’s just me.
Stepping off my soapbox and on to another topic entirely, since tomorrow’s this bloggy’s blogiversary, I have some fun and games for around here. First off, tomorrow I’ll be hosting a super sweet giveaway. So make sure you come back to check it out.
And secondly, I’ve been holding off on doing the “Ask Me Anything” craze that swept blogland a few months ago for this very occasion. It’s a chance for you to get to know me better. To ask me a question go here. It’s completely anonymous, so feel free to ask me anything you like, running, personal, general life views, etc.
I’ll accept questions until Friday and then answer them sometime next week. Don’t be shy. I promise to answer all the questions, unless they are vastly inappropriate.
Happy Hump Day!
