Happy Wednesday from Venice! Random? Well, welcome aboard the Random Train, because this is how we roll around here!
MacGyver and I shot down here last night around 9pm with the two
babies dogs in tow. I got up this morning and ran 6 miles on the Legacy Trail. It was a really good run. I finished with an average pace of around 9:35. Not bad considering it’s hot, humid and it was pouring rain for the last mile. Actually, the rain was nice, it was a welcome relief from the heat.
Today was the first time, in a couple of months at least, that I actually saw a gator while running. Thankfully I didn’t see him until I was almost past him or I would’ve freaked out because he was only about 2 feet away from me. He was running alongside the trail but in the opposite direction. He was about 5 feet long and just in case you didn’t know it, gators actually move quite fast! They do! They’re quite the sportsmen.
Since we’re on the random train already, have you heard about the pet store owner that is eating pet food for a month to raise awareness about what’s in pet food? I give her credit for taking action but I’m not so sure that’s the action I would have taken. MacGyver and I have both tasted our dog’s food, you know, strictly for scientific purposes and not because we’re idiots or anything, and it isn’t all that appealing. I can’t imagine doing that for 30 days!
If I had to eat something for 30 days to make a statement or bring awareness to something, I think I’d rather do something like Morgan Spurlock’s ‘Supersize Me’ but instead of McDonalds I’d eat Chick-Fil-A for 30 days. Yeah, I’d jump on that one.
And one last thing I just have to mention. Did you know that Chrissy Teigen is fat? Well, according to Forever 21 she is.
As the beautiful wife of John Legend recalls in this interview with DuJour Magazine, when she was younger she was booked directly for a shoot with Forever 21. She showed up on the set and they asked her if they could take a photo which they sent to her agency who then called her as she is sitting in the makeup chair, and Teigen says they told her , ‘You need to leave right now, they just said you are fat and you need to come get your measurements taken’.
Teigen revealed that she was fired from the job at Forever 21 and goes on to say, “And I hate you, Forever 21. I hate you so much. Honestly you are the worst.”
I’ve read some comments where some people have said that she needs to get over it because this happened some time ago and then I’ve read a lot of supportive comments from people who are now refusing to shop at Forever 21. I think Chrissy Teigen is absolutely beautiful and if she’s fat, well, I’m a hippo, but in my opinion the modeling industry is pretty flawed as a whole and maybe that’s not why I’m surprised, but shame on you Forever 21, shame on you!
What do you think? Do you think Forever 21 was wrong or is this just how the industry works?
Would you eat pet food or anything else just to make a statement?
