Good morning! I’m writing to you from my hotel room. About to hit the road soon so I can rush back to the office and catch up on the work that’s somehow piled up in the last 24 hours.
Today’s post is a bit of a hodge-podge, so I’m linking up with Amanda to embrace the randomness.
1) First of all….what the hell is the deal with the thigh gap? And why is Target willing to digitally mutilate teenage girls’ bodies to make the gap look bigger? In case you’re just now hearing about this, Target apparently photoshopped some of their junior swimsuit ads and took it a tad too far….
Yeah….Oh hey, Target, she’s missing half her crotch. Thought you oughta know. You can see the rest of the pics and read the story here: Target Apologizes for “Thigh Gap” Photoshop Fail. First the credit card thing, now this. You fail, Target.
This story pisses me off on multiple levels. The first reason being that Target photoshopped the thighs of models at all, but even worse the ones that are marketing to teenage girls.
The second reason is the whole idea of the “thigh gap” in the first place. When did we get it in our heads that our thighs shouldn’t touch? I could write a whole post on this, but I’m not going to because it would be one giant, snarky rant.
2) I apparently drink tea when I’m at hotels. I almost never drink tea, but when I checked into my room last night a hot cup of tea just sounded so great. I enjoyed 2 cups while lounging and watching TV. After a 3 hour drive and the college panel it was a great way to unwind.
3) Maybe I was craving tea because this weather is ridiculous. I left my house yesterday and it was 70 degrees. When I checked into my hotel last night it was in the 40s. The wind was howling like crazy for half the night and we’d had some huge rain storms blow through. Thank goodness I packed a jacket so I wouldn’t freeze leaving the building today!
4) I wish I had some great workout recap to offer you this morning, but I’m skipping that part. I packed some gym clothes and had every intention of catching a workout in my hotel gym, but after tossing and turning all night I slept through my 6AM alarm. Instead, as soon as I hit publish on this post I’m grabbing some breakfast from downstairs and getting on the road. I’d much rather have an hour or two at home to shower and get ready for work than do all that in a hotel room if I have the choice.
On that note, I’ve gotta wrap up this post so I can grab some food and coffee, then off I go!
Coffee or tea?
Thigh gap- what’s the deal?
Do you do things when you’re at hotels that you don’t do at home? I apparently drink tea. I also do different workouts at the hotel gyms that I normally don’t do at my own gym. Not exactly sure why, but the novelty of venturing outside the norm makes me switch it up.
