Zulily, Use Plus Sized Models

by Meredith on January 9, 2017

Listen, Zulily. You’re failing in the Plus Sized Department.

This chick is not Plus Sized. She’s a tiny person.

This lady? Beautiful woman, but she’s not a big beautiful woman.

You came a tad bit closer here. The lady on the left is your version of Plus Sized (she’s maybe a size 8 at best?). The lovely lady on the right is simply wearing clothes that don’t fit her.

Fat girls want to see what the clothes will look like on fellow fat girls.

You’re claiming to have all of this Plus Sized selection, but really you’re just showing us the same tunics over and over again, month after month. Back away from the tunics, Zulily.

Finally, your return policy blows (because there isn’t one). Nope. Nope. Nope.

Be better than this, Zulily. We’re all rooting for you.

Facebook Pokes

by Meredith on January 8, 2017

I’m not sure why this is still a “thing”. But FOR FUCK’S SAKE, STOP POKING PEOPLE ON FACEBOOK!

It’s always men.

Always.

It feels like you’ve just grabbed my ass. It’s creepy. It serves no purpose other than to seem like a whiney bitch, “Pay attention to me!” For what? Why am I supposed to pay attention to you? I don’t even know you.

You might as well send a dick pic so my girlfriends and I can have a good laugh at your junk. I’ve already mentally put you in the dick pic category.

Can someone PLEASE tell me what motivates a poke? Please. I want to tell you why it’s a dumb idea.

Launching Podcasts

January 5, 2017

In case you missed it, I’m back in podcast-land. Years ago, Brittany Gibbons and I had a show. We brought it back! This time it’s more like an NPR show. I’m kidding. We never verify anything we say like real reporters would, it’s more explicit than ever, and we’re more day-drunk than anyone working for NPR. Listen […]

The Adderall Dilemma

January 4, 2017

di·lem·ma noun 1. a situation in which a difficult choice has to be made between two or more alternatives, especially equally undesirable ones. Cons: It makes me crave cigarettes, and I hate smoking. I don’t like taking pills every day. I don’t like the stigma attached to taking Adderall or ADD medications in general. Pros: […]

Hello, 2017

January 3, 2017

I’ve been telling myself blogging is dead (and to some extent it is – literally publishing a message on any other form of social media is easier than publishing a blog post). But I miss writing, and I’m paying for the hosting. Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace class has been teaching Shaun and me that we […]

This will go in history down as my best idea… or my worst.

July 27, 2016

This is a post about money. Talking about money is rude. But when have you ever known me to be polite? Zero times. Right now I’m paying a social media manager, a nanny, a few part-time graphic designers, some part-time photographers, my mom (she keeps the books), and my dad (he’s my driver because I suck so […]

Five Podcasts To Get You Into Podcasts

April 13, 2016

The other day I had to explain to my mom what the word “podcast” means (which is hilarious since years ago I co-hosted a fairly successful one). Podcasts are these little bits of talk radio (for lack of a better description) that come in every genre you can imagine. Do you like funny stories? Perfect. NPR […]

Skinny people get sick, too.

April 6, 2016

I thought I was having a heart attack. Or maybe a panic attack. But the more I sat there, wheezing, chest tight, arms numb – the more I realized I was probably going to die. This was it, I had finally worked myself to death. Putting in 80 hours a week had lead to… curtains. God […]

I’ve been wearing leggings as pants for Science.

February 11, 2016

I’ve been adamant about leggings not being pants. Because they’re leggings. And not pants. You can read my most popular blog post ever about this highly controversial (and totally polarizing) topic by clicking here. I was the one who told all of you leggings are reserved for babies and toddlers. I told you about us being […]

You Park Like An Asshole & Other Neighborly Causes

January 28, 2016

I could have spent today working on 1099s. I could have spent today getting a pitch done for tomorrow. But no. I spent today fighting for the cause. YOU. ARE. WELCOME. NEIGHBORS. I spent a significant amount of time making this diagram to show you guys how fucked up shit is in my neighborhood. I’m […]
