Ever watch the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show at Christmas and feel terrible about yourself after? Don't. The way those models look isn't sustainable. They work full-time to be thin and pretty, but prepping for the show goes to another level. There are conflicting reports, but E! news reported that Adriana Lima goes on a liquid diet nine days prior to the show, then consumes no food or water for 12 hours before the show is taped for editing. (That's right, it gets the Adobe treatment too.)

in fact… let’s take it one step further and not refer to women in terms of their body shape… ever… can you imagine calling a big dude “curvy” or “plus size”? you can’t because we don’t define men by their body types… so… make it a point of not fussing over body types… stop using words like even, or average… why should that even be part of the equation of women’s worth, good or bad?

I sort of want to do this... and sort of would be depressed by it: Everything I Have. A poster showing every single possession of artist, Simon Evans. Including a ripe banana.
