#remember when sookie was played by a fat actress and there were literally no jokes about her weight on the show? #remember how she wasn’t defined by her weight? #remember how she got to date and get married and have kids and not be just the token funny fat friend of the main character? #remember when she ~got her life together and was happy before lorelai and that wasn’t seen as threatening?
remember how her insecurities (which she did have, because doesn’t everyone?) had nothing to do with her appearance and were more about her artistic failures, her ability to be a mom, her “annoying quirks” she thought Jackson would get tired of?
remember how even though she was often clumsy forgetful and disorganized she was still portrayed as a competent adult? remember how her decision to get married and have kids didn’t diminish her career as a master chef and entrepreneur? remember how she was a bubbly and funny supporting character without being shallow or unintelligent?
Long live Sookie.

Okay, the heels are weird.
But I am pretty encouraged. This looks like a Wonder Woman who kicks ass.
It is SO important to SO many people that they get this right. I hope they understand the responsibility they have to people, not just women, all over the world.
Hmm. Still conflicted, mostly because of the bustier.

Dune, Recreated with Gummi Candies
CandyWarehouse created this diorama of Paul Atreides riding the giant sandworm in Arrakis from Frank Herbert’s sci-fi series Dune, in candies:
Crafted from a 2-foot-long gummy worm, Haribo gummy bears, black licorice string, yellow sprinkles, and rock candy crystals! A scene from the great science fiction novel Dune by Frank Herbert. Here we see the giant gummy worm on the desert planet of Arrakis. Ridden by the powerful gummy bear Paul Atreides as he seeks to control the prescious “spice” melange, which gives those who ingest it extended life and some prescient awareness. Muad’Dib!
This is insane and I love it.
