"You see Mr. Scott? In the water, I'm a very skinny lady..." - The Poseidon Adventure



I'm reading The Devil Wears Prada and it's disgusting to hear how skinny these girls are, but at the same time funny to read about how fat they think they are. Here are a couple of my favorite quotes from the book"

"Fat was on everyone's minds, if not actually their bodies. Emily swore that her thighs had a 'wider circumference than a giant sequoia.' Jessica believed that her 'jiggly upper arms' looked like Roseanne Barr's. James complained that his [butt] had looked so big that morning when he got out of the shower that he'd 'contemplated calling in fat to work.'"

"I could feel her eyes examining the size of my butt as I walked back to my desk and briefly considered whipping around to walk backward like a religious Jew would do when leaving the Wailing Wall. Instead, I tried to glide toward the hidden safety of my desk while pictureing thousands and thousands of Hasidim in Prada black, walking backward circles around Miranda Priestly."

Maybe I should try Amber's Duct Tape Diet....

And in that book where they think she is so fat she says she wears something like a five. :0)

I love the "calling in fat to work" part. ;-)

I watched the movie*. I could barely stomach that. Pretty sure I wouldn't be able to handle the book.





*As a trade off to spending time with a girl - certainly not on my own accord.
