Things You Shouldn't Say to a Woman...

Henry: Hi Asha, I haven't seen you for a long time.
Asha: Hey Henry.  Yeah, I don't come around (to the pub) much anymore.
Henry: You look different.  I hardly recognized you.
Asha: Yeah, my hair is getting long.
Henry: You've gained weight.
Asha: Yeah, I guess I have.
Henry: You must be eating a lot.
Asha: Something like that.  Nice to see you Henry.  Bye.

Okay... so my feelings were hurt.  Yes, I've gained weight-- about 7 or 8 pounds.  This could be for a few reasons:

1. I am eating more consistently (and still probably less than your "average american").
2. I have been lifting weights.  No, this doesn't excuse my round face, but it does mean that I'm one step closer to being able to kick your ass when you start talking about my weight.

Seriously though...."skinny" girls think about their weight too.  So be careful what you say and who you say it to.  You might really hurt someone's feelings. 

Oh, and in other news today, I was editing photos for work while having a cup of coffee at The Bad Waitress.  There was an older woman (in her 70's?) with an older man and their son sitting behind me.  The old woman was talking about a car full of Mexicans.  Moments later she exclaimed "They're all a bunch of roof monkeys anyway."

What the eff is wrong with people?  Seriously.  Do people have no sense anymore?  No filter?  No clue?  It's 2011...and clearly some people have a lot of growing up to do.

They should call that place "The Bad Customer"...

You should come to the cabin with us this weekend. (If we go, which we likely will). There are fish. I assume.

Greg-- I'd love to go to the cabin with you this weekend, but I am going to Guatemala on Friday.

Lizz-- Thank you.
