Matt Bomer, better known as USA Network’s Neal Caffrey stated recently that “a lot of confidence comes from comfort”. Apparently some people did not get that memo. There are “new” products on the market that are called shapewear for men from Equimen and Ript Fusion. Basically this stuff squeezes and hugs the body and reminds you to stay straight. Sounds good right? Sure it does, as this helps to maintain posture and just like the Wonderbra, is a case of false advertising (you know it’s true).
One review had me in stitches as this fellow stated that he loves his shapewear usually but “last night, however, I was out partying in a sleeveless Equimen product and matching firm control brief and I was miserable. The top kept riding up, which, combined with the lower pressure from the brief, kind of forced my stomach outward, like squeezing a pimple.”
Um, no thank you! Forget the corset, gimme my white tee and boxers.
This is a re-post from the Writer’s Cyanide blog (which you SHOULD have read by now) which a couple friends and I have started.
I was talking to a friend today and the topic of not being able to pitch a tent came up and sparked a very heated debate. Anyways without further ado, let’s get on to the reason we’re here….
So, here I am, sitting in the living room, sports news on in the background but I don’t care because they are talking bout horse racing, cricket [who watches that?] and in a few they’ll be mentioning Arsenal’s dismal 3-0 loss to Chelsea. The fat man is making some unintelligible sounds [i don’t consider that language] and I’m wondering what to write. (more…)
Well, I decided to do things a bit different today, instead of ranting and raving about what I don’t like, or writing poetry, I have decided to change things up a bit. Today I write about one of the things which intrigue me….
Skate Boarding (Yea I’m just a skater boy!)
I recently got back on my board and I must say that I really did miss the thrill of skating, in fact I’ve been trying various little tricks now that I have become more comfortable on the board, which I did by being with it 24/7, while watching TV I’ll be practicing switching etc, and while I’m here typing I’m rolling the board back and forth cause I’m about to go risk life and limb to do some ollies (I just did my first [successful] ollie….and boy am I elated!).
Lots of people ask what pushed me into skating, well, its crazy fun, burns serious calories (you ever seen a fat skater?). I just needed something to do outside the gym that was fun and required me to be outdoors alot and this was just the outlet. I’d like to stay and go into more details, but why waste a perfectly good day inside when I could be outside getting bumps and scrapes while enjoying the sunshine?
