I read a blog called Back in Skinny Jeans quite regularly. It’s written by a gal, Stephanie, who is a real woman trying to lose a little weight. I like to root for her, and I’ve also picked up some great exercise tips and what not from her site.
Yesterday she posted “Scientist shares the secret to perfect boobies” about an article in the Daily Mail. I think Stephanie did a good job of sending it up, so I won’t go into it to much, but basically the article tells that a scientist will be presenting his findings on the proportion of the perfect ta-tas, after studying many pictures of breasts, to the first international conference on breast enlargement, to be held in London this week. Awesome. You see, the “scientist” is a plastic surgery. The article in the Mail didn’t give any detail on the studies methods, of course.
I had no idea that the breasts of the world were under such scrutiny. Well, at least not from a “scientist”.
Today was one of the awesome, sunny, clear days in San Francisco. These are the kind of gorgeous days that make you forget when you were freezing your nose off in the middle of July in the fog. It was warm, brilliant, and comfortable out in The City today.
I went over to the farmers’ market at the Ferry Building on Embarcadero at lunch. I got a vegan tamale for lunch, and picked up persimmons.
I love the “fall” in the city. It’s funny, though, that in other parts of the country, it’s starting to turn cold, and people are unpacking their sweaters and coats. Here, we never pack up the sweaters or coats, because you’re just as likely to need them in June as you are in January. However, you also never know when you can wear skirts and sandals. I think tomorrow is going to be a skirt and sandal day for me personally. It’s nearly October.
I hope that this October does not disappoint me. It’s usually the warmest month of the year here, but this year has been very off. We didn’t get enough rain over the winter, and then it never got as hot inland as it normally does. It’s normal for it to be barely 60 in The City in August, but not in Concord. I guess only time will tell, but I’m hoping for many more brilliantly warm fall afternoons in San Francisco.
