Do you mind if I rant for just a minute…or ten?

This past weekend, while enjoying time with friends and family up at my cousin’s cottage, I had the unfortunate chance of coming across a tweet from one of the (fitness) models I have featured on one of my Tantalizing Tuesdays posts.

The fact that he referred to some women as “fat ugly trolls” who’s “man wud rather stare at 10/10 then u stuffing ur face wit chocolate [sic]” was totally disappointing.  Considering that he is in the public eye and has the ability to be a positive role model, I was shocked to see something so hateful.

I couldn’t help it.  I had to tweet back and no I wasn’t very nice in my tweet.  Yes, yes I know.  Two wrongs don’t make a right but it made me feel better to get it off my chest.  Of course, both he and one of his minions had to tweet me back and insult me.

I so wanted to reply to them both but I decided against it.  There would be no point in trying to reason with such hateful people.  Then I thought of replying with this (courtesy of Stella):

Then I thought of this (again courtesy of Stella):

Book Review: Naturally, Charlie by S.L. Scott

SUMMARY:

Twenty-five year old Charlotte “Charlie” Barrow is caught between her old life and the one she is beginning to build when she crosses paths with a handsome stranger on the subway. Not looking for romance, she closes her heart off to the possibilities of love. With a knack for mishaps, Charlie maintains her sense of humor while befriending the kind stranger who seems to be there at all the right times.

New York freelance writer, Charlie Adams, is forging his own path beyond the expectations of the society circles of his childhood. Rejecting family money, and fast-lane friends, he is snubbed by his family as he follows his own compass to a life more extraordinary.

Through a coincidence of events, they come to rely on each other for comfort. This is the tale of two Charlies learning to trust again while fighting their fates to create their own destiny.

Just A Few Things…

This is a very random post. It’s just a few things that made me…

…LAUGH OUT LOUD!!!! My sister found this site and posted it on her Facebook wall.  My fave one there was the one you see on the right. I know it’s not true but it just made me laugh.  No matter what I do or where I go there’s always some connection to Twilight or Rob.

...sigh. My good friend Setje made a lovely Rob fan video and I wanted to post it here.  She always has a great eye for amazing Rob pics and she’s put a few of them together beautifully in this video for our enjoyment.  Go ahead and watch!!!!  Go ahead and swoon!!!!  Go ahead and drool just a little. I DARE YOU!!!!
