I think this every time I watch Morning Joe on MSNBC and Mika Brzezinski jumps on her fitness/diet high horse. It’s infuriating. I’ve seen Mika Brzezinski on the news for decades. To the best of my knowledge she’s always been blonde, fit and beautiful. I can’t deal with someone…
I don’t totally agree with this, but I know to some extent it’s true for me as well. Like the other day my landlord looked like I was emaciated (not even close!) and asked if I was sick. I totally took it as a compliment. Not the sick part, but the emaciated. The lifelong desire to be normal and skinny is painful so it’s still satisfying to the 16 year old in my head. And all those mean skinny bitches along the way can suck it. In reality, I am very healthy and not skinny but it feels good to have those old demons be satisfied. But now I would much rather be strong.
But it’s also why I look down on/get frustrated with people who don’t fight hard enough. Just don’t give up, figure it out. Work harder. Fight harder. It’s why I ended up starting distance running last year. I knew it had to be something huge to change me, that I had to push myself and now I am not only pretty happy physically (comparatively) I am so much happier mentally knowing I can kick ass and I kicked my own to get here.
So now even our sharks are fat and lazy. I’ve had shark week off and on all week, today was the only day I just left the channel on while I’ve been working and then doing stuff around the house. What I learned: our great white sharks, especially the California ones, are too fat and lazy to jump like the South African and Australian ones. One reason: they are Americans.
It’s like the US is one of my bad 90s boyfriends (Geoff Verne specifically): fat, lazy, deadbeat, entitled and generally obnoxious. The fatty sharks out there hunt for the biggest fattest laziest elephant seals, who are the highest in the world in fat ratio. Which is sad, because I would think the Arctic and Alaskan seals need the body fat more than the California a-holes. But like fatties, they are easiest to catch. So the sharks don’t jump or breach because they have no reason to. And then they are too fat and heavy to jump even if they wanted to. To make it worse, they don’t have to swim as much either. Perfect. It’s bad enough people here eat horrendously and gorge on animal fat themselves. Then they feed their pets fatty and gluten filled undigestable kibble and sit back and watch them get equally fat too, straining their little organs and cutting their lives short. It’s so troubling how little time and thought people put into their dogs’ and cats’ food and exercise. Just in general, people are so sickening, sitting around eating all their fat meat and bread and fried grease and drinking their faces off while not giving a shit about the planet and the animals in their own homes, much less in and on the way to their disgusting stomachs. And sharks somehow fit in here.
Wait, what was the point of this? Oh, even our greatest hunters the sharks are fat and lazy.
