    • I loathe those tiny terry-cloth shorts with words written across the butt. And the more salacious the words on the butt the more likely the shorts are to be three-sizes too small and totally age-inappropriate.

        • Although I'm fairly indifferent to whatever weird apparel adults decide to wear, I have to say that the following when I was teaching MADE ME INSANE.

          1) Please do not send your five-year-old daughter to school in three-inch platform sandals. It is very hard to run at recess while wearing three-inch platform sandals, and Teacher Panda has to spend a lot of time tending bruised knees. I won't say a word about her midriff if you ditch the shoes.

          2) Please do not allow your six-year-old son to attend school in his Power Ranger Halloween costume for weeks on end. Yes, I know it's what he likes to wear, but it is okay to say no. You see, in addition to the distraction this causes, having a high-kicking Power Ranger among us in the classroom, it is also made of very thin material and it is forty degrees outside. Teacher Panda is tired of hearing your son complain that he is cold.

          3) Please do not send your four-year-old daughter to school wearing an all-white outfit autographed by the designer, and inform Teacher Panda that I should not let her get dirty. (This particular child, in addition to just being four, was a veritable PigPen.) It made me sad when she would notice some new grass stain or paint on her autographed-by-the-designer-white-apparel and say in horror, "Teacher! I'm going to be in so much trouble!"

          • A 5-year-old in platform sandals with a bare midriff? That is sad! I can only imagine what mom wears. <-- Probably tiny terry-cloth shorts with the word MILF across the back.

            • Thankfully, with the DISD dress code, we didn't have many issues with that. Even unnatural hair dye was technically verboten.
              There was one chick, however, that I saw in college. Due to where she carried her excess weight, she was VERY hippy. We're talking "nice tits, decent stomach, WHABAM, 3 axe handle hips!" I normally don't pay much attention to people's body shapes, but she called attention to it all too well. How? By wearing a fluorescent orange tube top with reflective sequin broad stripes, fluorescent orange mini skirt, and platform 6" high heels that matched the shirt perfectly. She LOOKED like a walking traffic cone, I shit you not.

              • I was out once with my aunt and saw a woman whose clothing was too tight and short and horribly age inappropriate. I said something about it and my aunt said "she probably just lost a lot of weight and wants to show off". So now that I am losing I try to be very conscious that I don't overdo because I want to show off.

                My pet peeve, platform flip flops with a bathing suit (I am from Florida), for some reason they think this makes their legs look longer when it really just has a sort of 'Frankenstein's bride goes to the beach' look.

                  -Peep-toe boots: they make no logical sense. when the hell would it be cold enough for boots (knee high or thigh high in some cases) but hot enough for open toed shoes
                  -extremely long fingernails: again, practicality overrules whatever cool factor you think they have.
                  -Logoed clothing: Right, because I'm going to pay you to advertise for you? I think not.
                  -extremely skanky clothing: honey, have some respect for yourself and keep that in the house.
                  -stripper shoes: see above
                  -Anything that makes me go "oh, honey, no. What WERE you thinking?"
                  -skinny jeans or low cut shirts on a guy. Just no.
                  -extremely oversized gangsta clothing. It's just comical to try and watch them waddle along like penguins, holding their crotch like they hafta take a piss.
                  Agreed!
                  Happy Monday everyone! I am lucky. I wear uniforms during the week. So that keeps the wierd stuff to a minimum. But I am a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl. Just add a fleece in the winter and I am good to go!!!

                    • Gay Panda is on a ripper of a water spike.

                      There really is no reason why. For one lovely day I was in the sick and sexyfied 170s, and then I bumped back to the 180s and my body is completely uninterested in returning. Instead, it spirals higher and higher, and Gay Panda has had to put on The Patient Hat when really what Gay Panda wants to do is yell as this drags on. This is entirely unfair since it isn’t my fault or my body’s fault, it’s just what happens, and my clothes fit wonderfully and my measurements show improvement.

                      I think that a lot of us have emotional trigger numbers. Gay Panda has two: 200 and 180. The first many of you probably share. 200 kicked me down the road like a can, spinning wildly and scraping on the pavement and slamming into curbs, because it seemed like such an insane number for one panda to be. I don’t body build. I’m not a football player. I don’t have a conjoined twin. Dear Valhalla, I don’t even eat that much! 200 is where my mind drew the line between plump to obese, and to not even share the same hundreds digit as my goal weight made that goal weight seem impossible. 200 was an emotional slaughterhouse for me. Of course, no one is really any thinner at 199.8 than at 200.0, but just to see the 1 instead of the 2 made me feel spanky.

                      Of lesser degree but still present is 180. When I was running miles and maintaining a massive calorie deficit for months on end, I was unable to slide past it to the 170s. No matter what I did, I could not get lower than 180. And then my body began rocketing up, fleeing past the high 180s to the 190s and settling there as I ran myself to injuries and my body finally said KNOCK IT THE HELL OFF AND FEED ME. And then it climbed higher, because the foods I chose for a body desperate for calories were healthy whole grains and tons of fruit. Past 200 and up and up . . .

                      What if that is what is happening again? I doubt we’ve hit replay, but to have a water spike of some duration at this specific number is a jolt. I wasn’t expecting it to bother me this much, but it does. So I’m fighting with myself today, because part of me wants to have a tantrum and the rest of me is saying you’re in the low 180s and that’s great and the water spike will go away like it always does IN TIME. But this is where Gay Panda runs into one of the panda flaws: patience is a virtue that I do not possess in great quantities. And weight loss requires it in spades.

                      But I have a day full of activities that must be attended: such rousing sport as laundry and vacuuming and shopping for swine flu and steak. My sink needs to be scoured and I found the original notes on The Dammerung from many years ago to read, and it entertains me to see how those first scribbles eventually became a gigantic book. I need to edit my series and yell at Avada Kedavra to stop pecking at the house because the sound makes me crazy. So maybe the best way to deal with the trigger number is not to put any more energy to it; I got my bitch out in my journal and sent a rude text to Lady Friend, and now I should do other things besides feeding a dwell. The dwell does not solve anything, and allowing it to grow will stop me from doing all the productive things about the house and in my life that would make me feel better in the long run.

                      So my word for the day is gracious, which I will act even if I do not feel, and on to laundry.

                      • I have no doubt you will persevere through this water spike with your sense of humor and beautiful writing skills fully intact. And, you will have lovely clean clothes (that fit wonderfully!) and a sparkling sink to boot. Your numbers are not going up, and up, and up this time. They are coming down, down, down -- with blips, and pauses, and (eventual) whooshes, but ever downward I am sure.

                        Hang in there, sister!

                        • Grace.........ahhh, that thing we are suppose to have when we really want to yell, kick, scream, and even punch the mailman in the neck. Goodluck with Grace, she left my house this morning, actually ran from my house, and I think she warned the mailman on her way out!

                          • I can totally empathize Panda, as I am still stuck in my "water spike". But since mine is now lasting about 3 weeks, I am no longer convinced it is just excess water (although I look totally swollen and water logged) but actual weight gain. Yesterday I went down 1.1 pounds and thought maybe it was finally going to do its thing and I could de-fluff. But this morning it was up 1.3, so it has gone even higher. I really haven't changed anything other than going from working part time, to working full time and part time. I love my jobs, so it shouldn't be stress, but my body just is not happy. Yesterday I did get stressed though, so maybe thats why I bumped up again today. One of my jobs is selling homes for a high end construction company, and yesterday one of my clients ended up being my former councellor from when I was dealing with depression. We didn't acknowledge knowing one another, as it was from a couple of years ago, but i could tell she recognised me. It shook me up for quite some time even after she was gone. Hopefully that was all my bump up was from and things start working their way down now.

                            • Grace [GRAES] (n.)- 1)Something Naiadknight only pretends to have, as evidenced by her innate ability to harm herself and others without even trying, usually while trying to do something else. This is confirmed in studies done by her friends and family. 2) A sense of fitness or propriety, something else Naiadknight tends to have in short supply, usually only when it's quite obvious that she needs to or should have kept her mouth shut.
