An update, a tip and a meme

Needed a short break from writing "Gods' Gift". Just a short one, I promise. Besides, I wanted another excuse to use my luscious new icon. B^9

The update and the tip are actually the same thing. My husband and I were tour-guiding some visiting relatives around the Mall of America when I saw a shop called Torrid. I was looking wistfully at the yummy clothes and wishing they made things like that in my size when I noticed a sign in the window: Sizes 12 to 26. !!!!!!!!! I was in there like a shot and didn't come out until I'd bought the laciest, most feminine top I've bought in in years and an equally sexy convertible bra to go with. I feel quite indulged. If you're like me and can never seem to find anything remotely shapely in your size, go check out www.torrid.com and enjoy!

And the meme? It's a never-ending one I lifted from kimbari and myalchod.

Some of you I hardly know at all, but you friended me and I thank you. But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself. Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "Ah, there's so and so...she wears mismatched socks." I'd love it if every single person who friended me would do this. Yes, even you people who I know really well. Then post this in your own journal.

So, a random fact about me ... what to choose? I really enjoy the visionary paintings of Gilbert Williams. For an example,

May have to make myself some GW icons ...

Okay, Chris, that picture is BIZ-ZARRE! LOL

Thanks so much for the tip on the fat lady clothes! They are soooo cute, if a lot of them are too young for me. And I only say that because I can so see my daughter in just about everything on that site. :) I'm going to pass the website url on to her.

The undies were to DIE for, though. I have a thing for panties. A girl can never have too many panties, I say. ;)

Damn, I love clothes, I wish I had some money. As it is, I have a closet full of clothes that are now WAY too small for me (that fit last year *sob*). I think I'm gonna call Goodwill. I need the closet space and I don't think I'll be losing weight anytime soon.

I am SO tempted to get me a bustier or corset, I can't tell you. Brandon might pass out from shock ... but that's not necessarily a bad thing. >;^)

I'm 38, so I probably won't be going for any of the out-and-out clubwear, but lots of the casual wear is just lovely. Here's a link to the top I bought.

Lane Bryant just seems a little bland after a while. ^_^

You're right about Lane Bryant. LOL Unfortunately Fortunately for me I have much credit with them. Great for paying for daughter's birthday gift. ;)

As for the bustier I say go for it. There may come a time in your life when not even such marvels of engineering will be able do anything for your boobs. Seize the day! (Any attempt to push *my* half-centarian ta-ta's up to a decent level are met with "water seeks its own level" physics. *sigh*)

*sympathy hugs* I SO feel your pain, Rina! I have been fat (yes, I will use the word; overweight presupposes that there is something wrong with what I weigh) for most of my life. It took so long for the fashion industry to even acknowledge that 14 is the median size for American women, not the bloody upper limit!!! Now we're actually starting to hear, "yes, fitted clothes are more flattering for larger women." Great. Where the *&^&%(+#@%^&% do we GET some?!

Now we know. ^_^

I could go into the trials and tribulations I've had trying to find decent exercise and performance wear for plus sizes, but that would be a whole 'nother rant. I'll just cut to the chase and point you towards www.junonia.com. ;^)

Random fact about me? My friend, Yasmin, and occasionally, my friend, Stephanie, and I spend more time talking in maths class than we do actually doing our math work. And we actually find the work easy.
22nd-Jul-2005 06:59 pm (UTC)
You guys sound like my husband. Brandon wound up with a minor in mathematics almost by accident. ^_^

Hahahahaha, sweet. Maths is definitely a lot more fun, now. :D

Don't blame you, hon. I've been hit with some whopper spoilers in places spoilers had no business being!

Hi, I just saw you friended me, so back at ya. :)

Random fact about me...I hate every kind of condiment. Ketchup, mustard, mayo, can't stand any of them. Eat hot dogs plain. Don't even like hamburgers.

Woo! I'm a mayo, cheese and onions kinda girl myself. Do you do chili dogs at all?
24th-Jul-2005 04:42 pm (UTC)
I honestly don't think I ever have had a chili dog. I actually just started aquiring a taste for chili, so maybe I should give one a try. :)

I am Regency and we met through a chat last week. I'm a lover of SG-1, Atlantis (though I no longer watch either), and BSG. I dwell in the valley of A/R.

I am the writer of a couple of drabbles and two as of yet unreleased long stories surrounding A/R.

Oh, yeah, and I'm writing a book.

Pleased to have metcha, Regency! My brain is also drowning in the A/R ficcy goodness. I've enjoyed your work and hope you've liked mine!

Maybe I'll see you in chat again this Friday? We'll have another new ep! *boingboingboing*
