[Content Note: Body Policing, Fat Phobia]
This is your regularly scheduled reminder that women should be skinny and sexy at all times in order to be considered normal and non-aberrant. Women should also make sure they always are standing on their toes, and should additionally not expect to have names.
La Crosse Technology WS-9640U-IT Wireless Weather Station with "Oscar"
Fun for kids’ room, the family breakfast nook, or the classroom, this wireless weather station from La Crosse Technology monitors outdoor conditions with a fun image of a boy called Oscar Outlook. Based on the temperature and humidity readings received from an outdoor sensor, the display shows Oscar in one of seven different costumes. If he appears with a hat, scarf, and overcoat, for example, it is sure to be a day when bundling up is wise.
La Crosse Technology WS-9740U-IT-NL Wireless Weather Station with "Weather Girl"
Wondering how to dress for the day's conditions? Get it right every time when it comes to dressing for weather by just following along with Weather Girl and her 8 different outfits. With icons suggesting what to wear based out outside temperature, the station also displays indoor and outdoor temperature and indoor humidity, as well as time and date.
I'm not sure what gets to me more: the fact that Weather Girl has a bared midriff for three of her five poses (whereas Oscar dresses pretty much like I do on a day to day basis), or that the "bikini point" for Weather Girl is a honking 78.8 degrees Fahrenheit. For reference: that's what I keep the temperature in my house set at in the summer. And while it's quite comfortable for me, it's not bikini-comfortable.
A final note: I don't go looking for this stuff. I went online today to find a weather clock, and this stuff found me. (I ended up buying this, for the record.)
