Short Halloween Linkspam

A couple pretty good articles from Slate about Halloween candy: Let Them Eat Candy! But what if your kids don’t want to barter with the tooth fairy or set off controlled Kit-Kat explosions or sell you their Butterfingers? What if they really, really want to eat 8 pounds of candy? Right now I bet some […]

Fat People Need Candy Too

Happy Halloween! If you have candy around, enjoy it. Candy’s only real function is to provide pleasure. Everyone needs and deserves some pleasure, including fat people. Plus, the only way to get good at eating something is to practice and even to make mistakes. If it weren’t for my parents allowing me to have a […]

Plus-Size Halloween Costume Review

Last Saturday night, I went to a Halloween dance called “The Monster Ball.” It was a fundraiser to provide Christmas lights and decorations for my town. Costumes were optional, but I decided to dress up this year since quite a few people who attend do wear costumes. But when you’re deathfat, the options for costumes, […]

Halloween

I read A Year Of Biblical Womanhood a while back. One side effect is I’ve quit buying most mass-market chocolate. I’m not quizzing bakers about their ingredients or attacking others for buying Hershey’s, and I’m certainly not thinking that I have perfect ethics. But fair-trade chocolate is readily available here (especially Theo). I can afford […]

Anonymous Coward Bullies Children On Halloween

I woke up to over 500 readers who let me know about a woman in North Dakota who has taken it upon herself to visually identify children as “moderately obese” and, instead of the candy she is giving to other children, giving them letters to their parents stating, in part, Your child is, in my […]

Ghouls and Goblins —

I don’t really dress up for Halloween, although I’ve long harbored a fantasy of thrift-shopping my way to the perfect Harpo Marx costume.

Only One Life

I’m an atheist. Do you know what that means? It means that I believe that we only have one life. One beautiful, wonderful, fleeting life. And it also means that we’d sure as hell make the best of the one we’ve got because there are no second chances. It amazes me how other people think […]
