Chunky Dunking

I recently saw a new Eve Ensler play, “The Good Body.” As with the “Vagina Monologues,” it’s theater based on interviews with women, but this time about how we deal with our bodies: fat farms, botox, the “spread,” boob jobs, vaginal tightening, nipple piercing, starvation, living at the gym, and bread fixation. Girl talk to the hilt, with lots of four letter words thrown in to toughen up the mood, which I like (women denied colorful language is one of my pet peeves).
That same day, someone gave me a compliment, but I heard it as “Kloe is fat.” Really incredible, because that’s not at all what was meant. So even rail thin dolls like me are always on the verge of hating ourselves.
(above pug's name is Smudge-perfect, no?)

Hi Kloe,

I ran across your website and thought you and other expats may be interested in trying out our long distance telephone service. This is something reall new in Turkey, and so we’re really excited about getting the word out.

From any land line phone in Turkey, just dial 1095 and then the number. For example
1095 00 1 (xxx) xxx - xxxx for a number in the US

The rates are 6.9 kuruş per minute — less than 6 US cents per minute to the US. You also get a discounted rate when calling Turkish cell phones.

The bill will come from Turk Telekom just like your regular phone bill. (This is very similar to a service in the US called 10-10-220 if you are familiar with that.)

Anyway, just wanted to let you know. If you have any questions please feel free to get in touch, or check out our English web site

Best regards,

Yunus Çelebiler
