Fun with friends, and more Tumblr shenanigans
Been a busy few days. Not so much work-wise, unfortunately, but some really fun times with friends. Last Thursday, Alex, SpankCake and I met for one of our epic lunches, this one lasting for 4 1/2 hours as we talked and laughed and chowed down on pancakes. These were mine:
Then on Friday night, a few of us got together for a housewarming to welcome Princess Kelley to L.A. John was able to join us for this one, and it was a nice evening. We’ve been having the heat wave from hell here, with temps in the 100s, but fortunately, she’d purchased some patio furniture and a grill, so we were able to stay outside the entire time quite comfortably. We left a little after midnight. Thank goodness for John’s titanic A/C system is all I can say. It really was horrible to go out anywhere this weekend, and always a relief to come back into the cool.
So, what do I love, kids? Yup, the endless parade of Tumblr spanking photo blogs that post and repost the same damn pictures over and over. What do I love more? That’s right… the Tumblr spanking photo blogs that never give said photos the proper credit. (Some of them do, and kudos to them.)
Remember this photo? It’s from about three years ago; ST snapped it when I was changing the channel on the stereo. It’s certainly gotten around lately.
First, it turned up on Tumblr site called “mindbendersa.” (What the hell does that mean, anyway?) It wasn’t credited. As I scrolled through many pages of this site, I realized that none of the photos were credited. Figures.
Then Alex reblogged it on her own photoblog, crediting it to me and linking back to my blog. (Thank you, Alex!)
And finally, someone called “lingeriespanker” re-reblogged it, adding his own two cents that I’m “way to [sic] skinny.”
Alex then commented that I am healthy and take care of myself, and shaming people at either end of the weight spectrum isn’t nice. (Thank you again, Alex! ♥) But by now, I just had to laugh at it all.
First of all, I’m neither in lingerie nor am I being spanked in this photo, so why was it on a blog called “lingeriespanker”? Was it just so he could share his opinion with the cyberworld, because everyone is just dying to know what he thinks of my body?
And second, who the hell do these people think they are, critiquing the bodies in the photos they
steal post? Please, don’t do us any favors. If our figures aren’t your cup of tea, then don’t bother gracing your crappy photoblogs with them, k? And if you don’t like the photos on someone else’s photoblogs, just shut up and move on… there are a quazillion others you can perv on.
I have never commented on a Tumblr blog — I can’t, because I don’t have a Tumblr account. Perhaps I should consider starting one. I think some of these posters could use a good dose of snark, don’t you? 🙂
Hope everyone had a nice weekend.
