The Blog Formerly Known as Inkspots

stuff wot I like. With the occasional doodle thrown in for good measure.

Bless my wife and her missus

trying to convince me to go and meet someone new- which would be absolutely fine if I had money. (Or indeed, a job) I’m completely broke now, I can’t afford to go out anywhere even if I wanted to.

Also why is it so hard to understand that I really can’t do casual encounters with strangers? For one, I’m so self-concious I can barely trust that anyone who says they’re into me as it is. I’m hardly going to sleep with them on that basis alone.

And secondly I have a hard time separating it from emotion, unless I’m pretty smashed, but even then I’ve held back, thanks to my hangups (and often, better judgement).

But I certainly couldn’t do it sober if I didn’t feel at the very least vaguely deeply for them. Love and sex are veeery tied up for me.

That being said…I could really do with a new hookup. Fuck knows where I’d find one in this town though. :/

How often have you been shopping and you come across something that is just PERFECT, but does not go up to your size? Over 60% of American women wear a size 14 or above, but only 17% of clothing sold is 14 & up. That is a ridiculous disparity.
Moreover, when some brands move into plus (ahem H&M), they throw their signature trendy looks by the wayside in favor of flowy dark fabrics that they think “work” for plus sizes. That is crap. Plus size women want color, print, and structure. Moreover, we want variety. A group this numerous cannot be a monolith, and since style is such a personal thing, we all have different tastes. I want #plussizeplease to be a way to showcase the demand for styles we’d buy and rock, and all the money brands are forfeiting by refusing to expand their sizes.
So here’s how to use it:
1) Snap a picture of a garment you love but does not come in your size. Include the brand and price, tagging the company if possible. For example, I am in love with this Zara marble print dress. I would have purchased it yesterday if it went above a size L. My tweet would be:
“.@Zara marble print sheath, $59. I’d buy it right now if it came in my size. #plussizeplease”
2) Use it on any social media – Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest… even Facebook supports hashtags now.
3) Tag anything you’d purchase, whether in store or online.
4) Feel free to include the size range it comes in and/or the size you think you’d need. Sizing can be tricky, so this is definitely not required.
5) Tell your friends! I don’t just want this to be a blogger thing – I want all women who wear size 14 and up to show their purchasing power and share styles they love. Let’s be unignorable!

Um, yes. I will be doing this.

bernardisgross asked: With love, "Once you get this, you have to say five nice things you like about yourself publicly, then send it to ten of your favourite followers!"

1. I guess I don’t scrub up too badly if I put the effort in- bit of makeup and my face is okay. And under all the fat there’s a decent figure starting to show.

2. I’m a good cook!

3. I’m a lot more intelligent and capable than I give myself credit for.

4. My singing voice isn’t awful? I guess? Idk people have said it sounds good when they’ve caught me at it haha

5. My sense of humour, it gets me through some rough times.

Decided to poke around in the HFTF rom again and found the background viewer! Most stages have two or three color variants (the desert stage has four!) I might do more later, some stages are less of a hassle to capture than others.
