It’s FRiday the 13th! Arise and come to class!
Hopefully, the electorate will vote republican out of dissatisfaction and ennui, ennui will have a new president and control of both houses next year.
We can hope for change. A+
Without chocolate ennui sets in and I refuse to vote for Romney unless he gives me a big box of chocolates, then I will run away from him and hide until after the elections...
Apathy indeed sucks, another 4 years of Obama will kill.
Where is everyone? Stuck in a snowstorm?
Yummy, I vote for Cain....
If you ping them, they will come.
OK, it’s snowing and you didn’t get your ping.....NO EXCUSES now.......get to class! The bell has rung.
and I thought there it was their ennui showing.
Ha, ha, ha -- we sent it for your enjoyment and to interrupt the ennui that prevented you from sending us our pings!
I tried to send in my homework, but a Big Bird running past ate it before I could hand it Emuintou.
Maybe they’re on their Wii’s.
and I laughed when I saw a youtube clip of MO giving a speech.......she said “me and Barrack” blah blah blah.....which grated on my ears.
let me rephrase my own statement: I thought it was their ennui showing.
Snow is still falling here, that and blowing all over. Blizzard like conditions when it blows, but not a lot of accumulation. It rained til the wee morning hours, when it turned to snow.
My story is much too sad to be told,
But practically ev'rything leaves me totally cold
The only exception I know is the case
When I'm out on a quiet spree
Fighting vainly the old ennui
And I suddenly turn and see
Your fabulous face.
Only Cole Porter would rime "spree" with "ennui" in a song. He was almost overly clever.
I meant a song! A real song! Something like "Swing low, sweet chariot"...
We might get an inch or so today, but it is blowing like crazy. I really can’t believe they didn’t have a delay today.
Yeah, but he’s the only person known not to get a kick from cocaine. Must have been something wrong with his physiology.
Snow ball fight!

Good find! A++
That cartoon is weird. A++
Ah...those were the days when songs had lyrics woth remembering and quoting — unlike now.
They don’t write ‘em like that anymore.
uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh! they definitely don’t write them like that anymore.
over Mitt Romney
Create demand for votes
I hope not, Romney may not be my pick, but it’s anyone but Obama for me. 3rd party gives it to Obama. A++
did I say nude pics?
You did now.
Size 8 - 12 is a plus size model..... unreal.
Size 22 and up is a plus sized model. LOL
Did you read the comments after? Clueless. A plus size model is someone in the 8-18 size range who models specially made plus sized clothing because no one wants to see a true plus sized woman modeling these clothes. Thus, a plus sized model is a NORMAL sized woman. The camera adds 10-20 lbs., so they use some subterfuge.
LOL Cats have that down. A++
Is ennui another aspect of torpor?
Happy Friday the 13th-I’m working on a bid and I won’t be leaving to go anywhere but into the woods for firewood a bit later-the battery to my cordless saw is no good any more, so I’m in for a session of hand sawing-
The ennui inspired by Obama
Alternates with total distrust
So although no one is perfect
I’ll vote the way that I must-
Whatever it takes to restore
Some semblance of real sanity-
Someone who is really motivated
By something other than vanity
A CIC who is not looking at
His mirror after every decision-
Someone whose spoiled-brat attitude
Doesn’t invite the world’s derision
I think that magazine is missing the point as much as the modeling agencies are-one size does not fit all in any way. Look at the difference in the bone structure of the two models in that picture-the Russian woman’s structure is far larger and more robust than the smaller woman’s-of course she should weigh a lot more. My daughter is like the Russian woman-a big girl, full curves but not obese, size 14, but 4 inches shorter than my 5’9”. She obviously takes after her German father, who is a big man-some dinosaurs probably had smaller bones than my daughter-my bones are almost half as small. As to diet, she never met a dessert or a plate of pasta or potatoes she didn’t like.
Some ethnic groups just are bigger people than others, too-most Russians, Germans, etc are big.
Most of the people of Hispanic ancestry I know have a small bone structure like I do, even though a lot of them are way overweight. I’m a size 5 and 108, I’m very active, healthy and strong for my size, but I’ve done hard, physical work for years, too. I’ve never liked sweets or starch much, I eat only whole grain bread and cornbread that I bake myself, and I eat mostly veggies and fruit-I’m not a vegan because I like lean meat, too. Far more men are interested women like my daughter than me, even the married ones-so that tells you what most men like their women to be-at least the ones I know and work with.
We are all different, thank heaven and the fashion world (whatever THAT is) should just let women be women and quit pushing ANY body type as “ideal”.
And I’m eternally envious of women who have curves-hips and
boobs to show sweaters, tank tops, jeans and shorts to best advantage...
