    Never mind that I am so fucking old that I used to babysit for Simon. His blog is awesome, even though I don't really get all the references.

Oh my dear, dear, dear Ann. This Volvo driving man is more PLU than YOU. The group name he has on his bumper sticker is the name of a group that is about body acceptance and means NONE of us are fat. It comes from a book called No Fat Chicks: How Big Business Profits By Making Women Hate Their bodies – And How To Fight Back. It's the newest hip and cool group and, no, I'm not kidding. There is even a chapter in Cincinnati.

Now I LOVE this man. Thank you Claudia, for setting the record straight. Geez Ann, you are so last year.

I can't even call it laughing outloud --- I can't roar so I make little spurty sounds & wiggle in my chair & snort & then I miss then next few words due to squeezy tear-y eyes.
I hope Sarah Blakeslee saw this about Leonard Cohen.
p.s. her Dad, Dick BLakeslee is the actual author of the folk-song (so we thought) Passing through. Believe it. It's on my page & I'm a librarian so I know about "authoritative" when it comes to information.

I was with you till the placenta soup. I thought we were supposed to put it in the freezer and eat it on our first anniversary.

OK - even if this man is a fan of "No Fat Chicks" - the cutting edge body acceptance group, don't you think the bumper sticker is a mistake? Like, really? It's not like it was the secretly cool: "Know Fat Chicks." I'm SO down on Mr. Volvo-driving-man.

And I even did a google search for "No Fat Chicks" bumper stickers, and I came up with some on Amazon! And the first one I looked at even had a 5-star "customer review." I quote it forthwith: "At first, all of these fat girls were trying to get me to hangout with them, and when i put this on my truck, voila! no more fatties!" (and his name was "M. Joy "BigDikk").

On that horrifying note, I'm signing off. :-)

Hmm, I resemble these remarks. Leonard Cohen, breastfeeding for more years than I care to admit, and yoga..well, I was a fervent yogini for a few years, till I hurt my hip doing all those damn hip-opening poses. The best thing is now I wear those great yoga pants from Lululemon and can pretend I'm on my way to or just back from a class. the thing about bumper stickers, I hate them. Always To Much Information about the person in the car.

Claudia

Niamh, I looked up the bumper stickers and I think you're right. How horrifying and here I was thinking he meant NO FAT CHICKS in a NICE way. That man in the Volvo -- even if he's nursed his young AND eaten placenta soup -- is most definitely NOT PLU from the comments on that bumper sticker site.
