Art Appreciation

Would it surprise you to know that one of my most favorite courses ever was Art History? And I did really, really well in it. Mostly because I do really, really well at BSing my way through essays. I wrote many an essay on plenty of paintings of naked broads. (I didn't post a picture as an example because you can imagine what would happen should I Google "naked painting." But you know the ones.)

For centuries artistic scholars have debated the subject of their nakedness at great length.

Is it based on culture and a greater appreciation for a hefty broad? Something our Western skinny obsessed culture can't quite wrap it's head around.

The 'fat is fertile' scenario?

Is the experimentation with pigment and light?

And on and on. If you've got a good story you can BS your way through just about anything in art history. I tended to go with the 'experimentation with pigment and light' argument most often. I was wrong, and I hate to admit it. We are back to the 'fat is fertile' scenario and an overwhelming case of coincidence. My thesis- The models all happened to be 15 weeks pregnant. Their old clothes didn't fit, yet they hadn't popped out enough for maternity wear.

My baby bump popped out yesterday. I felt like I should document it somehow, but I'm not about posting baby bump pictures. One of these days I'll tell you why. It's nothing personal, I don't like ultrasound pictures either.

Hurray I can not wait to see your little bump! I'm also not about posting bump pics.

Oh c'mon. You've got to show it off! I'd love to see. : )

I was never into taking pictures of my bump either, let alone sharing them with everyone, although I do want to see a picture of you pregnant, not a bump picture. Hope you are feeling better.
