Jonny Straws, once a self-described “Cancer/Lupus Fighter”, has taken his exercise ball and gone home.
Kath Eats, of one taco fame, has posted a “Things I’m Afraid To Tell You” post because apparently that blog cliche is making the rounds again. In it, she addresses all those things readers have wondered for months.
If you want to buy the book you can click the link in my profile or go to benwalksamerica.com. Every book will be signed by me, and hand delivered to the post office. Thanks so much for the patience these last couple weeks. It’s been a little stressful putting it all together and waiting on shipping.
What is it with bloggers and their shipping issues?
Anyway, in the interest of selling himself as ‘that fat guy who walked around’ he has now moved to a new tumblr.
And if you want to be the new Ben who is doing life you can spend $2k and buy his old domain!
At least one good thing might come out of this boring post nobody cares about.
More book club, anyone?
You may remember Stasia, fat gal who never got on a bike. She had her second GoFundMe ostensibly for weight loss surgery, but it seems the majority of the funds raised actually went to pay her rent and bills and finance her nights out with “friends”.
Well, good news – despite claiming she was being evicted this side of 6 weeks ago she is somehow magically now able to afford this surgery.
She makes it sound likes she’s been busting fupa for years and this is her only option.
I have given it a go for 2 years now, and though I have lost quite a bit, I haven’t lost enough and I know I need this extra tool.
She then launches into what looks suspiciously like a partnership/sponsor spiel.
I will be using Dr. [redacted], in Tijuana MX. I was contacted by [redacted] and will be sharing my experience with you guys about going through them with the whole process. I’m looking forward to sharing all of the ups and downs and hopefully giving some insight about the experience of medical tourism, and take away a lot of the fear. People are really scared of the unknown. But I have heard, first hand, and read, nothing but great things about [redacted] and their entire process. I can’t wait to start this new chapter. 2017 is going to be a year to remember!! If you’d like more information, contact [redacted] of [redacted]
When some of her followers naturally assumed this meant she would be getting a free surgery, and wanting to know wtf happened to the GFM that is still earmarked as ‘medical’, Stasia did her usual defensive rhino charge.
why would I give any money back? When the money was raised and used for the surgery??…read my above comment. And it’s not for free.
And of course her fangirls were quick to add helpful comments like “Even if the surgery was free, there is still travel and recovery time! People just jealous!”
If she is not getting a comped surgery she might want to break down precisely how she is suddenly financing this operation. Because anyone with simple math skills can figure out, based on her own words of how she spent the fundraiser money on rent and bills and makeup, that the GFM money is long gone and probably not going towards this surgery. At the very least she could stop yelling at people and just delete and block if she doesn’t want to deal with it. Whining about haters and having social media slapfights isn’t a good look for a “celebrity”, Stasia!
