    I've got this mental image of the three of us walking into Sephora, Pony to Cass's right, me on her left. As she peruses, he and I keep watch, sunglasses on, arms crossed, expressions stern and foreboding. A plucky saleswoman approaches and asks "Miss, can I help you with any--" but before she can finish, I go "BACK OFF BITCH, SHE'S FINE" and Pony escorts her out of her own store.

    Oh my God let's go into some store where I clearly can't fit into any of the clothes and you guys will yell at them for not being able to service my needs and you can backhand one of the girls. See I got a gift certificate for this store in work and I went to this store in Yorkdale I figured I could buy like a scarf or something and when the sales associate saw me she literally curled her lip up, raised an eyebrow and said "We don't serve women of your size. Maybe you should check the men's section."

    Just fucking deck that bitch in the jaw

    That should get a complaint to her manager, a call to the higher ups in the store corporate ladder, and possibly a mention to the editor of the fashion section for the local weekly. That kind of behavior is terrible.

    Everyone knows the people were the worst part of Wall-E anyway.

    You can tell Pixar really, really wanted to be really sarcastic and nasty with the whole consumer-culture-gone-awry thing, but someone at Disney was like "wait a sec, that's our customer base, just make them into obese naive teddy bears who mean well at heart or something."

    at least the people at the end of WALL-E didn't go

    "oh jeez all this technology is what started this problem! let's send all our ships with all of our technology and medicine in it sailing into the sun, and then we'll live in a primitive hunter-gatherer society where 75% of us will die in the first winter"

    i mean what kind of piece of shit science fiction would end on that note?

    what does that mean? are you arguing strictly founding father's intent? that is a dangerous argument there buddy

    Hmn. I'd be curious to see a fuller explanation from Scalia.

    well. doubt that will happen.

    They added those in after test audiences expressed their belief that humanity would quickly perish after returning to Earth.

    Which is dumb, because the ship's reactor was still working so they could live out of it while they were rebuilding and the ship's computer had all the information and knowledge they needed to start rebuilding and farming. They would face a pretty harsh learning curve, but nothing they couldn't adapt to in the time before the ship started to crap out.

    Also, there were other ships out there too. Theirs was just the first to return.
    A harsh learning curve? Those were people who could no longer physically move themselves under their own power. They're not exactly fit for the farming life.

    They were just fat and lazy. Their ship had artificial gravity, so no space bone loss.

    And they had robots to help them with physical stuff as well.

    And one of the points of the movie was that the people didn't actually want to be fat and lazy, they just didn't know anything else.

    The idea isn't that they're going to regrow everything from that plant silly, it's that the plant proved there is capability for life on earth and thus other plants are likely there as well.

    Which is still absurd but not quite as bad.

    guys when Fluffy and Pony hang out they egg each other on and it becomes a feedback loop of trolling

    and when you consider that Fluffy once told a handsome ice cream man that I elbowed Aaron in the face while giving him his very first blowjob

    Wait is this a true story

    Oh my god, Pixar movies

    one of the worst movie-going decisions I've ever made was seeing Up with a bro in a theater full of children. I cried so fucking hard. And, bless his heart, the bro didn't say a word.

    WALL-E upset me pretty badly, never watching that again.

    i didn't cry, i just had that empty feeling of terrible sadness and i wanted to curl up and die

    It's a great movie but for some reason the ending never felt, to me, like enough to make up for an hour and a half of this sad lonely robot struggling to get the girl he loves to notice him. The sweetness of it was a just a bit outweighed by depression.

    Did you watch the end credits? They were really happy and
    all about rebuilding civilisation and Earth

    I actively ignore that subplot. It was stupid and unnecessary, I just wanted to watch the robots.

    But the robots ended up happily in love, helping the humans rebuild civilisation.

    What, possibly, could be sad about that?

    No, I mean all the human stuff. The human stuff ruined what could have been a really innovative film. And that message about the evils of consumer culture and man's dependence on blah blah blah blah obscured the only part of the movie I cared about, which was the lonely relatable junker robot earning the love of the woman he admires. Anything to do with that other shlock, including the credits, was bad.

    Pony has agreed to go shopping with me as I go through this transformative makeover.

    And oh my god I am so anxious about the whole thing. Let's go over why.

    1) The last time I went shopping, I had a crying fit in a Pennington's changing room, clutching a pair of size 22 jeans that DIDN'T GODDAMN FIT RIGHT, as a sales woman desperately told me I was beautiful. So you know, shopping as a fat lady is fucking stressful, especially since I have boooody issues

    2) The whole point of shopping with a friend is like you leave the change room and the person critically examines your ass and is like "Yes that does not flatter your ass at all, no, you should wear these pants which will hug your hips." and it's like goddamn that is going to be nervewracking for me. I don't even know why but I bet there's all sorts of pyschological issues going on there.

    3) Most stores near me are closed off so I need to find only plus sized stores which I don't know if there are any in Yorkdale or his mall.

    4) Jeeeeesus fuck I have no fashion sense

    Oh, the 5-minute face lady? A couple of acquaintances were raving about her, apparently she's awesome.

    The only make-up I know is the stage stuff I learned in high school, so I can make very realistic scars and wounds and bruises and make sure that people 50 feet away will be able to tell your eyes from your ears and your lips from your cheeks.

    When the ships were launched the intent was to return. It was only after the fact that the ships were told to plan for a permanent stay in space.

    I mean, you can spin it into a super depressing "and then they all died" scenario if you wish, but that wasn't the story that was presented to you.

    did you know:

    not all blowjobs are done from the position most typically seen in films

    it's true!

    sometimes when you are laying down, or sitting on like a couch or something, you can get a beejer from a sideways position, where she is laying on her side and you and her make kind of a T

    or the angle could be even sharper, especially if say you're servicing her with your hand while she's going to town (also can be used for gay blowjobs)

    don't even need to full on 69, you just make sort of a V with your bodies
