Fat People Are Fun to Pick On!

It's not ok to discriminate or be mean to anybody. It isn't even ok to think badly of anyone for any reason... unless that person's fat. Then it's ok to tell the person that all her health problems are a result of being a lazy fat-butt stuffing her face all day.

Oh, and marketing furniture for someone who is obese is just plain wrong. It's enabling that person to live a more normal life. Don't you see how evil that is?

We need to make all pants a size 12 or under. This way, if someone eats too much, she won't be able to exit the house until she goes on a diet. And don't make furniture for those people! They might sit down on it and get comfortable, rather than going to the gym 24 hours a day. Fat people don't deserve to sit, or eat, or rest. They must do penance for their pigginess all the time. Be sure to sneer at them if you catch 'em eating ice cream. You KNOW just by looking at these people that they have no self-control. They need some of that tough-love, positive peer pressure from the outside world to help them mend their ways.

We all know that if we make fat people furniture, that EVERYONE is going to want to be fat and start eating at the buffet twice a day (they arrive at the end of breakfast-time and eat through lunch for their first meal, but you knew that). I can tell you that I never personally considered the idea of getting a BMI of 48 until they made MRIs big enough for my butt to pass through.

I think it's time for a national campaign. We'll title it, "Just Say No to Second Helpings." That'll help.

  1. You are so funny! That is exactly how I feel every time the skinny partner at my doctor's office lectures me on eating. She actually goes through the whole spill on eating vegetables and portions. Number one she can't seem to remember she has told me this like 4 times already. Number two she assumes fat people are fat because they are stupid.

    Yea--last year some Australian politician was talking about limiting the sizes clothing stores can sell, because selling cute clothes for fat teenage girls only encourages them to stay fat. Incredible what some people think.

    Loved your post!

    I'm so glad you commented... the lack of comments was starting to make me wonder whether people thought I was really advocating this stuff LOL!

  3. I guess I can think of a few things that *might* (if one stretches) "encourage" or "enable" obesity. Seat belts? Plus-size clothing? Def not. Because the overweight totally don't deserve automotive safety or clothing.

    Americans are crazy. We wonder whether our celebrities are "pregnant" when they gain a much-needed 10 pounds while we are scarfing down 2000 calorie appetizers.

Reading Curriculum: ABeka Book and BJU Press

Did you know that in the state of Missouri, homeschoolers must teach reading as a separate subject?  I don't know how anyone could homeschool well without teaching their child to read... but OK. 

I got many of my ABeka books used and collected them over time.  I'm glad I came across these readers early in my homeschooling years.  It teaches children to read step-by-step.  I don't think I've seen a more effective reading program for the elementary years.  The children love the stories, and what I appreciate about them is that there is a rich and varied language even in simple-to-read books in this series. 

My set is pretty old, and some are even from the 1960's and no longer listed in the reading series.  I think if I had to do things over again somehow, I think I'd just spend on a curriculum set and be done with it.  That's the thing, though, with homeschooling.  By the time you figure out what the perfect curriculum is for you, your children have graduate…

Homeschooling is NOT So Hard.

I wish I'd have known this starting out. I wish I'd have known that it's actually LESS work to just homeschool your child, than to be an "involved parent" at school.

We've enjoyed elementary school with our older boys. *Most* of the teachers were actually pretty competent and caring (the others, I save for another blog post, another day...). We had the children involved in extra activities like the Spanish Club or Service Club, or choir, and they got a fair bit out of the experience.

But it's a LOT of work.

You get about a ton of worksheets that must be done by a certain time. Usually on a day when you're sick or have no time. You get the phone calls about this or that, and about a zillion sheets per day that sometimes contain important news, so you MUST go through them daily. The schools also *love* to throw in half days, teacher in-service days and early dismissals. Not so bad, unless you have children at more than one school and the schedu…

Holiday Gifts for the Homeschool Teacher!

Merrymaking hint:  leave this post up on your phone/ computer for your family to "accidentally" find!  Let the magic begin!

 All teachers love a little appreciation every now and then, including homeschoolers.   I don't know about you, though, but I don't want any apple crap.  So first rule:  no apple crap! 

Otherwise I'm pretty open.  I love getting gifts, even if it's just something small or simple.  One thing I love is when my children want to help out and make lunch or clean up or put their laundry away.  Or just behave themselves and get their math done.  This is a really big thing when you think about it.  

And from the adults in my life, the gift of coffee always shows love - or rather, someone not wanting an "I need coffee" emergency in the middle of winter after a big snowstorm.  Somehow, I always have a lot of coffee in my pantry during the winter months.  (Guess why.) Thanks, D!
