MUST SEE – Oprah is everywhere and now she is naked on a dress!

I was reading the headlines overnight when something unusual caught my eye…

“Obamacare tanking”
oprah“Obama changes mind on insurance”
“Oprah: Skinny, Naked and Screaming on your dress”

Hold it.  Stop at #3.  Oprah is a lot of places – she’s on my magazines, she’s on my television and most recently she was on a movie, but I didn’t realize she was on my dress.

Turns out Oprah is on a dress and in all of her glory!  Well, not exactly her God-given glory.  It’s Oprah’s face on another person’s body.  See image unless you are under 18.

How did Oprah end up on a dress?  This is the creation of fashion designer Peggy Noland.  Peggy Noland made it in the fashion world, creating styles for Miley Cyrus and Rhianna.  Did I mention Peggy Noland is from Kansas City?  Dial our Kansas City coolness factor up a notch.

Most hip people probably already know that Peggy is from KC, but this suburban mom is floored to find this out!  Peggy Noland has her flagship store here in Kansas City and I will be taking a little shopping trip there very soon to get out of my Chico’s comfort zone.  Anyway, here is an interview where Peggy explains the vision behind the dress in New York Magazine:

“For me, it originated as kind of the age old [red] carpet question: Who are you wearing? And this clearly is: You’re wearing Oprah instead of a designer. Sally mentioned from the onset of this collaboration that one of Oprah’s most effective qualities is that she’s a placeholder, she’s a stand-in for you with her foibles and her failures — especially with her public weight issues. I’m interested and sensitive to this increased access that we have to celebrities and to all of their ups and downs, for better or worse. I feel like it’s kind of my own personal exploration and exploitation of just that.” http://nymag.com/thecut/2013/11/oprah-skinny-naked-screaming-on-your-dress.html

I’ve been reading a lot of reactions about this dress. The biggest outrage starts with an “r” – RACIST.  Peggy is a white designer who used a black woman’s body as an object.  Peggy also decided to use Oprah, the most powerful black woman in Hollywood and media, and expose her completely.  It has many crying racism.  So here’s the question…

Would it have been different if she would have used a white woman’s body instead?  Say…Barbara Walters or Katie Couric?  Who the heck wants to see Babs naked, but I couldn’t come up with anyone like Oprah to compare to Oprah.  You get my drift. (No offense Babs.  If that position comes open on the View call me.)

There is one thing for sure-Peggy has the fashion world talking.

Do I think it’s racist?  No.  Do I think it’s extreme? Yes.  Fashion is art – I’m talking real fashion, not the fashion I frequent in the malls.  Sometimes it’s going to appeal to many and other times it may strike out.

Now where can I buy this dress so I can wear it to the next PTA meeting? (Can’t stop laughing at the image of me showing up at the PTA meeting in this dress and my crocs.) Peggy – I’m packing up the minivan and coming to visit your store!

Don we now our horrible apparel – Hallmark fails

Kansas City based Hallmark Cards is in hot eggnog over changing a popular Christmas carol lyric on one of their ornaments.

From their website:131030192325-hallmark-ornament-story-top

Hallmark created this year’s Holiday Sweater ornament in the spirit of fun. When the lyrics to “Deck the Halls” were translated from Gaelic and published in English back in the 1800s, the word “gay” meant festive or merry. Today it has multiple meanings, which we thought could leave our intent open to misinterpretation.

The trend of wearing festively decorated Christmas sweaters to parties is all about fun, and this ornament is intended to play into that, so the planning team decided to say what we meant: “fun.” That’s the spirit we intended and the spirit in which we hope ornament buyers will take it.

 

Ok…I get it.  Here’s the deal from someone who has bombed MANY times doing a play on words – if you have to explain it in this much detail – you have to ask yourself, “is this really worth it in the first place?”   How about the word “Don”?  Anybody ever hear of that word being used now in ANY way except for some dude’s name?  The whole Christmas carol isn’t relevant anymore except for being a snappy tune that people love to sing once a year.

Here is the real crime and it isn’t political correctness-it is this hideous ornament. That’s where my outrage is – Holy Ugly!

Keep the lyrics traditional and if you want to be sensitive to gay people make ornaments so lovely that people (gay and straight) will want to buy them and make this world a little more beautiful at Christmastime.

Sorry Hallmark – I think you will be receiving a lump of coal in your stocking this year.

If it walks like a duck..

Today’s post isn’t a letter to anyone.  It is just a post about my thoughts.  I think like 99.9% of all Americans, conservative and liberal, regarding the government shut down….I am o-v-e-r-i-t!

Here’s my list of thoughts in no particular order on this Monday:

1.  Even I am sick of talking about the shut down and that is serious.  When I can talk politics all day every day and I am sick of it you know there is a problem.  I’m opting to read gossip magazines to find out the latest about the Jenner split BEFORE I read the latest happenings on the Hill.

2.  Regarding the closing the WWII memorial – here’s the deal folks – stop scheduling the Memorial Flights until it reopens.  The monument is CLOSED whether you like it or not.  Also, tone the drama down a bit.  The veterans aren’t exactly “storming” the monument.  They are walking quickly towards it, but they aren’t exactly “storming” it. If some of the veterans miss seeing the memorial, well that’s sad, but think of all of the veterans that lived without a memorial up until it was built.  Memorials are amazing, but they are statues – they do not make the person or define the experience.  Let’s stop acting like this is a trip to the Holy Land.

3.  The rollout of the Obamacare WEBSITE has been a disaster.  I want to be clear – I’m not talking about the entire program just the website.  The firm who designed the website gets two thumbs down from me.  It’s 2013 and you KNEW that there would be MILLIONS of people hitting this website at one time.  Experiencing this many technical glitches is unacceptable.  I may be a loyal Democrat, but if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck…

A bad website doesn’t mean the entire program is a bust.  Everyone take a deep breath and let’s see what happens when the refresh button actually refreshes.

4.  Two big thumbs up to Obama for the gas prices.  Here in Kansas City gas prices are a $2.97/gallon for unleaded. Woohoo – that sure helps right now.

5.  As much as America HATES the thought of career politicians, the whole mess we are currently in makes me stop and think about the benefit of career politicians to keep us out of future messes.  Before we get all high and mighty voting all of the bums out of office think about what got us here in the first place.  There may be something said for career politicians knowing what it takes to negotiate and just how far they can push each other until we end up with monuments being shut down, WIC programs not receiving food and our nation’s food supply not being monitored.  

Hey these are just my thoughts…

Now back to reading about the Jenner split.  Wake me when we hit the debt ceiling.

It’s hot as hell in #KC! That can only mean 1 thing @KrisKetz

It’s so hot, I can’t even type.  That means it’s time for a repost.  I don’t do this often. so here is an oldie, but a goodie. Enjoy – Aimee

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Good old Kansas City in the summertime. Not only are the politics hellish, but now we have weather resembling the condo in hell where Satan resides.  100 degrees today with a heat index of 108 degrees.  It can only be a matter of time before my favorite local TV news segments air…Image

Baking on the dashboard of your car OR frying an egg on the sidewalk!

You can always tell the reporter who drew the short straw for this segment.  If we all didn’t already know that it was hot outside from the weather smacking us in the face when we open the door, local news seems to feel like we need another visual to get the message across that IT’S FREAKING HOT.

Cue local reporter standing outside with an egg.

Never mind that the reporter’s make-up is melting off like the Nazi faces in the Raiders of the Lost Ark, or that we can all see the steam off the asphalt on the camera close-up, we all need to see that it is indeed hot enough to cook things that we will never eat.

(Cue outrage from the National Association of Stop Wasting Food.)

I feel for the reporter that has to do an update from the car every half an hour on how the brownies are cooking on the dashboard. “They are in deed cooking,” said reporter A.

Why do we need visuals like this instead of the meteorologists just telling us the temperature?  Because there is ALWAYS some dipshit parent who leaves their kids in the car. Really mom?  You couldn’t take little Johnnie out of the car and throw him in a cart to shop at Walmart?

http://www.kshb.com/dpp/news/region_kansas/johnson_county/kcmo-woman-charged-with-child-endangerment-after-leaving-kids-in-car-at-walmart

Here’s the deal folks – it’s CRA-AZY hot outside.  Leave your kid or pet in a car for even a micro-second and you are risking that your dog will literally turn into a hot dog (grab a bun).

I don’t blame the reporters for these looney visuals, I blame the parents who had their brains removed as soon as they brought little North home.

(That’s not a Kim K dig – just picked the name randomly, honest.)

Until I don’t see anymore stories about some kid or pet suffering from being stuck in a car that is hot enough to bake brownies, the reporters will have to keep doing these stories.  Please make them stop by wising up.

Now excuse me while I go buy some brownie mix.  I’m craving brownies and if I put them on my dashboard now, I’ll be able to eat them by midnight.

Somebody send a camera crew!

 

Fast Food Strike – “Hey Hey Ho Ho Our Workers Didn’t Show.”

Hearts filled with clogged arteries were beating a bit sadder today as Kansas City faced the fast food workers strike.  Cities around the nation had similar strikes that involved workers from the trifecta of convenience crap – McDonalds, Wendy’s and Burger King.

The workers chanted “hey hey ho ho poverty has got to go.” ManSANYO DIGITAL CAMERAagers from these three food chains shouted “hey hey ho ho our employees didn’t show”.  (Ok busted- the managers weren’t chanting that, but I am really proud of my ability to rhyme.)

The workers want an increase in their hourly wages to $15.00 from an average of $8.00.

Whatcha talking about Ronald?

That’s right – $15.00 per hour.  As the striking workers marched TinkerBell showed up an threw her pixie dust on all of the fast food restaurants and the workers will all now be receiving $15.00 per hour.

The end…

OK – snap out of it.  You and I both know that didn’t happen.

What did happen?  Increased awareness that our fast food workers don’t make peanuts.  So every time I drive thru my local McDonald’s I will say, “sorry dude” as I grab my biggie fries.

Am I outraged at how little fast food workers make?  Yes.  Do I think this strike will mean much?  No.

The medical industry has already provided me about a thousand reasons NOT to feed my kids at fast food restaurants.  Fast food increases our risk of diabetes, obesity and heart attacks, yet I continue to frequent the unhealthy chains.  Paying their workers below a fair wage, isn’t going to change America’s desire to feed our faces with cheap and convenient food.

Sorry Charlie that you don’t make enough to put your kid in diapers, but I need my burger and fries NOW and I don’t want to pay much for it.  Start increasing prices to compensate for higher wages at one burger joint and I will drive my car a mili-block to the next fast food chain so I can get my burger and fries NOW and cheaper. Maybe if America didn’t have a fast food restaurant on every corner, the workers may have some leverage?

The good news is today isn’t National Hamburger Day, but it is National Lasagna Day. Boil the noodles and grab some mozzarella – it’s Lasagna time!

Ciao,

Aimee

#KC Shocker: Kansas City is hot and this can only mean one thing

Good old Kansas City in the summertime. Not only are the politics hellish, but now we have weather resembling the condo in hell where Satan resides.  100 degrees today with a heat index of 108 degrees.  It can only be a matter of time before my favorite local ImageTV news segments air…

Domestic Violence Disappointment – my story

If you are from Kansas City, you know the story….the story of Amber Taylor and Austin McCauley.

Quick summary:

Amber and Austin were living in a motel with Amber’s 4-year-old.  Amber gets a text from another man one morning.  Austin finds out about it.  That night he beats her with a bat over the head.  Amber has a towel wrapped around her head with blood all over the bathroom.  Amber ends up in the hospital.  While in the hospital, she figures out she has Austin’s phone in her pocket.  She logs onto Austin’s Facebook and posts a picture of her battered self on his Facebook page to show Austin’s friends what he did to her.

The picture goes viral.

Amber ends up doing media interviews and becoming “the face of domestic violence”.

Fast forward to Austin’s court date.  Austin ends up in court and Austin pleads not guilty.  He says she hit herself with the bat.  We all find out that Amber has been visiting Austin in jail and has confessed her love for Austin again.

My reaction:  SHIT!  Why Amber?  Why did you do this to me?  I was so invested in you.  I believed you. When you said on the radio you would never go back, I believed you.   I believed that this time you were going to leave him.  This time would be different.  You said all the right things to me.  You were such a good role model for women in domestic violence relationships.  I feel so let down.  This is why people don’t believe victims when they say they are going to leave.

Oh wait, we aren’t in a relationship.

Why do I feel so let down?

I blame social media.

Before Facebook I wouldn’t even know about Amber.  Maybe I would have caught the story on the nightly news, but then 3 minutes later she would have been gone from my life.  It is only because of Facebook that I became so invested.  You could argue this is a good thing, because it highlights the issue of domestic violence, but also a bad thing if you think about people getting victim fatigue when it comes to the mentality of “Why help? They are only going to go back.”  Remember, it takes the average women 7 times before she leaves a domestic violence relationship.  Amber isn’t any different.

Because of Facebook, we all love being part of a social movement.  Think about it:  “click like if you (insert issue, cute picture).  I’ve learned to pass these things up, but think of all of the thousands of times people click like every day.  We all want to be part of the collective good.  We all want those kids to get the puppy.  We all want that soldier to feel loved, or that kid to feel beautiful.  We are constantly finding ways on Facebook to feel invested.  We all became invested in Amber’s story and now there is admitted disappointment in the outcome no matter what the judgement is in the courtroom.

Amber posted her pictures on Austin’s Facebook account to GET BACK AT AUSTIN.  She did not do it to become the face of domestic violence.  Big difference here.  We made her the face and voice of domestic violence.  This is obviously a position she wasn’t ready for and couldn’t handle.  We (meaning the public) were bound for disappointment when we forced this woman into this role.  We wanted a triumphant outcome.  We wanted the Lifetime Movie.

Why did Amber go back or think about going back (I can’t confirm she went back)?

Probably some of the reasons from Austin:

  • I love you.
  • I’ll never do this again.
  • I’ve learned my lesson now that I’m in jail.
  • You made me do this to you since you got those text messages.
  • If you would have just listened to me, this wouldn’t have happened.

She may be thinking:

  • If I wouldn’t have texted that guy, this wouldn’t have happened to me.
  • I always push Austin’s buttons.  If I would learned to keep my mouth shut, this wouldn’t happen.
  • Who is going to date me now that they saw what I did to Austin on Facebook?
  • He must really love me if he is willing to forgive me for what I did to him on Facebook.
  • I think if he ever gets out of jail, he is going to kill me.  I need to get back with him to save my life.

 

To judge her and say “if it was me, I would never go back” is to not really understand the vicious cycle of domestic violence.

I’ll get over my disappointment, but I worry about her safety and I hope that she will be o.k.    If you or someone you know is in a domestic violence relationship please call 913-262-2868.

 

 

The Belcher/Perkins tragedy – No secret in furthering my personal agenda

A number of days have passed since the horrible murder-suicide of Belcher and Perkins.  Kansas City is grieving and processing the terrible tragedy.  My last post was my initial reaction based on the few facts that came out initially about the incident and my experience working in domestic violence.

There has been a lot of response to my last post – good and bad.  The most interesting is that I have a personal agenda that I am trying to push.

Do I have a personal agenda that I’m trying to push regarding the Belcher/Perkins tragedy?

Yes!

Yes, I have a personal agenda that I am trying to push.  I am not ashamed of it.  In fact, I am not trying to hide it at all.  I want to shout it from the rooftops!

My personal agenda in writing about the  Belcher/Perkins murder-suicide is I don’t want to see another woman get seriously injured or murdered at the hands of an abuser.

Can I be any clearer about my agenda?

I am simply trying to use my knowledge about domestic violence to reach out to people and help them understand what happened so maybe we can prevent another unnecessary murder.

  • Like I said before – all “types” of men abuse women.
  • Leaving is the most dangerous time in a domestic violence relationship.  It is when most homicides happen.
  • Babies can often make domestic violence situations worse.
  • Alcohol and drugs can increase the intensity of domestic violence outbursts, but they are not the cause of domestic violence.
  • The best place for a woman to go when leaving an abuser is to a domestic violence shelter – not to a relative’s home.
  • Don’t focus on the abuser’s behavior and if he will “change”.  Focus on what you can control if you are the one being abused.  Get help!

If you or someone you know is being abused, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline:  1-800-799-SAFE.

Please forward this blog post and get the word out.  Let’s try to save a life.

 

R.I.P Kasandra Perkins

Kansas City is in shock over the murder-suicide of Kansas City Chief’s player Jovan Belcher and Kasandra Perkins.  Belcher shot Perkins multiple times and killed her before driving to Arrowhead Stadium and shooting himself earlier today.  Perkins was 22 years-old and mother to a 3 month-old daughter with Belcher.

I worked as a hospital advocate with domestic violence victims earlier in my career.  Being a hospital advocate is tough.  It is the time when the wounds were fresh and the arguments just happened.  Here is what I know about abusers and domestic violence:

  • Rich guy and poor guys beat their wives and girlfriends.
  • Really smart guys and stupid guys beat their wives and girlfriends.
  • Obnoxious jerks and quiet, introverts beat their wives and girlfriends.
  • Jocks and geeks beat their wives and girlfriends.
  • Drunk guys and sober guys beat their wives and girlfriends.
  • Babies can change the dynamics in a domestic violence relationship and it is almost NEVER for the better.
  • Women stay for all sorts of reasons and if you aren’t these women you will NEVER get it.

I don’t know anything about Jovan and Kasandra.  I’m speculating like everyone else in Kansas City.  Why would a professional athlete take the life of his beautiful girlfriend and mother to his adorable daughter?

One too many blows to the head is one thing I’ve heard.  Maybe, but I haven’t heard anything about bizarre behavior before this incident.

Too much pressure in his professional life.  This one has me thinking.  The Chiefs have been really struggling this season.  Kansas City fans have not been quiet about it.  Did this add to the pressure and push him over the edge?  Are we all a little guilty in pushing a little too far in our displeasure over the Chief’s poor performance?  Have we become bullies to our hometown athletes?

On the one hand its professional football players jobs.  They know what they are getting into.  Perform well as an individual and as a team and you walk on water.  Perform bad and everyone is going to let you know about it. Shouting obscenities and insults has become our own professional sport here in KC.  Whether we are at Arrowhead or just entertaining ourselves on Twitter, making fun of the Chiefs has become our new Sunday afternoon tradition.  I think it comes from frustration, anger, disappointment and sometimes just out of boredom with our team.

In a culture where the hitting is hard on the field and the fans think it’s ok to emotional abuse the players, is it any surprise that this stuff can spill over into a player’s home life?  I don’t, but I do think it’s incredibly tragic and it should all make us pause for a moment.

I am interested in what others think about this.  I know when I write my blog and I hit publish, there is always a part of me that freaks out over the thoughts of putting my work out there for people to read.  Who isn’t afraid of criticism?  I can’t imagine playing on a football field in front of thousands of people, playing poorly and having to hear all the booing every Sunday.  Do you think professional athlete’s become immune to it?

If there is anything at all positive that can come of this, hopefully the NFL will take this opportunity to send a message and support Domestic Violence groups.  The sport and the fans are not to blame for what happened to Kasandra, but the NFL can stand up and send a strong message against domestic violence.

R.I.P. Kasandra.  Such a sad day for Kansas City.

 

 

God says heat wave continues until gays allowed in Boy Scouts

I’m in middle America and it’s freaking hot. 102, 105 and even 107 is expected. No rain.

I am a menopausal woman in the middle of an oppressive drought and heatwave. My internal body temperature averages 120 degrees. I have a theory that if my internal body temperature ever meets the external air temperature I will actually melt. (Associations to the Wicked Witch reference can be made now.) If this happens and I’m standing on your dying lawn consider it a gift of a free watering. If it happens in a parking lot you could possibly get a free car wash. Have your soap ready. I may be your only source for any moisture in the area for a long time.

I am concerned about this very real possibility of my melting so I went searching for answers to the heat wave. My first stop was to our local weather blog: http://weatherblog.kshb.com/heat-wave-of-2012-grows-stronger/

I scrolled right down to the comments section looking for answers. I just happened to be watching the Real Housewives of the OC Reunion Part 2 at the same time. A fight that only Andy Cohen could have hosted erupted on the weather site comment section:

TushguyKC: you said it was going to be 102 degrees! It’s 105 degrees! Damn you Mr. Weatherman

Angryfarmer: Our entire nation’s food supply is at risk because you forecasted 101 degrees and it is 103 degrees! Damn you to hell Mr. Weatherman.

Ok, so maybe it didn’t read exactly like that, but you get my drift. There were so many comments screaming about the heat and I’m watching the RHOC so I can’t tell where one stopped and the other began. I’m just going to blame Brooks and Vicki for the heat wave in Kansas City.

So then I looked to the heavens for answers. Please God, give me an answer to help me understand why you would make a menopausal gal suffer in such an oppressive heatwave. I would understand this if I were enjoying my retirement playing Mah Jongg in Phoenix. but I’m here in the Midwest and it is WAY TOO HOT! Just at that time, I happened to look down at my iPhone that was open to a news app.

Headline: “Boy Scouts uphold longtime ban on gays.”

It’s the Boy Scouts. The Boy Scouts are doing this to me. It is my sign from God. Preachers get signs from God all the time. Why would God just limit signs to preachers and not be able to send one to a menopausal gal from the Midwest on her iPhone with a news app?

A local Eagle Scout was kicked out of the Boy Scouts after disclosing his sexuality. http://www.kansascity.com/2012/07/17/3710030/boy-scouts-decides-to-uphold-ban.html

The Boy Scouts did a two year study to decide if they should uphold the ban.

A two year study? Seriously? Our military has decided that it’s time to stop with Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and these are soldiers that live in tight quarters under extreme conditions, but you tell me that an organization that ties knots and has badges for helping old people cross the street has to examine a question like this for two years? Now I don’t know what the two year study actually included, but in my mind a questionnaire went out to Scout Leaders reading like this:

Question 1: How does homosexuality make you feel?

a. Super, duper creepy.

b. Kinda super, duper creepy.

c. No problem with it. It’s 2012 and homosexuality is a non-issue.

d. Like I want to be the grand marshal of the gay pride parade!!

Scoring: answers a, b & c mean the ban is upheld

A statement from the National Executive Committee said this,

“Scouting believes that good people can personally disagree on this topic and still work together to achieve the life-changing benefits to youth through Scouting. While not all Board members may personally agree with this policy, and may choose a different direction for their own organizations, BSA leadership agrees this is the best policy for the organization and supports it for the BSA.”

My message from God to the Boy Scouts via me:
Stop the ban on homosexuality. It’s 2012 and you are talking about an organization for boys where a child does not knowingly enter the Scouts with any understanding of their sexuality – either homo or hetero. It’s not like a country club that doesn’t allow Jews and I would join using my gentile last name to get in anyway and knowingly put myself in a situation to face discrimination. (Not that I would do that, even if they do have a great pool and golf course)
God says that unless you are going to start offering badges for kissing girls, dating girls or judging Playboy centerfolds, a ban on homosexuality is unnecessary and hurtful in a time when kids are killing themselves because of the hatred they experience as homosexuals.
Oh and God also said that Andy Cohen is looking fab these days and we should be new BFFs. Andy – call me.
It’s now on you Boy Scouts. Stop the heat wave. Do the right thing. My life depends on it. Toss your two year study (don’t burn it, there is a burn ban because of the drought) and tell kids in America that sexuality has nothing to do with scouting.
