Keven Smith gets kicked off of Southwest Airlines for Being Too Wide.

He's Twittering all about it here. This is not going to go down well.

My dad got married this Fourth of July. It was nice. We went out to the cliffs we own and then came back and had a cream can supper and set off as many fireworks as we could be it started raining too hard.

For those of you not in the know, a cream-can supper involves taking a clean cream can (you know, the metal containers fresh milk gets put into so it can be properly carried about and even pasteurized in) and fill it with lots of sausage, cabbage, carrots, whole potatoes, corn on the cob, and a little bit of onion for flavor, about six cans of beer and then enough water to cover all the ingredients, then put it on a propane burner for about one to two hours (how long depends on the size of the cream can and how hot you have the flame set at) with the lid ajar to let steam and vaporizing alcohol escape. Once it's done, tip it over into a container that you can drain the water out of (we used a clean cooler) and serve. It's delicious and you can feed a good number of people really easily that way.

I should be writing or even researching for my writing, but I got distracted. Here's some links:

The Importance of Blood Pressure Cuff Size - If you're overweight at all, you really should read this.

Sizeism in fandom

Fat/Size/Body Acceptance 101

...but don't you realize fat is unhealthy? - in which Kate Harding proves it's really not

How can it be a disease if it has health benefits?

and, possibly most important, Fat-Friendly Health Professionals - list includes most of the USA, as well as Australia, Canada, Ireland, and New Zealand.

My internet connection has been problematic lately, so I haven't been online a lot.

Thanks for all the birthday wishes!

I had to work but M got me a big chocolate cupcake and the Dr. got me a Hershey's chocolate bar. My mom came to pick me up Tuesday to do something fun. I spent the night at her house and we did some shopping. And then on Friday, my manager, M, and the Dr. got me a little cake and a little cheesecake. We ate the cheesecake and I took the little cake home. I have gotten way too many sweets from them. :D

My bedroom got flooded the other day when the hot water heater died. The landlord did what he could, and my friend M let me borrow her dad's old dehumidifier, which is something a Colorado native, like myself or my landlord, wouldn't think of. Thanks to that, everything is dry.

Since I've been stuck more or less offline, I've been working on a new piece of fanfiction, this time for the Transformers fandom. It's a very... different action/adventure/romance, especially considering at least one of my main characters is fully aware he's not the most stable of people. I have been having fun explaining how giant alien robots would express emotions. They're not just limited to human senses, after all. I'm over 13,000 words now, nearing 14,000. I still have a scene towards the beginning I need to write before I can start posting it, though.

How have you guys been?
