    Also, I know how much you hate Lane Bryant fat sacks, but I have some of these pants and I looove them. They are pretty stretchy, also, and I find them to be ample in the belly area. They might work for you!
    Something like that might do for a work costume, although it's not something I'd wear around town.

    The Steel boots are made in the Czech Republic. They are very well made and I think they're head and shoulders above, quality-wise, than even the old Docs. The only thing they don't have is the word "Doc" on them anywhere (not that I care, they're far superior boots).

    Speaking of Docs...

    I have an old pair of Docs that are in like-new condition that I don't want (worn maybe once). I just don't wear Doc Marten. They were made in England. Size is approximately women's 10. Discontinued (rare) pattern. They're purple. Want 'em?

      Oh! Thanks for the offer! I'll be honest, though, I despise pink and purple. It's funny, because I guess I look femme and all, but I violently abhor most "feminine" crap. I guess that explains why I don't wear makeup or shave.

      And yeah, I hear you. I do not care about name brands and street cred and all that bullshit. I know I look like this sweet smiley girl, but seriously, I don't fit in anywhere, with any group of people, and (most of the time) I am ok with that. Fucking hipsters! Personally, I just want to express myself in such a way that I like what I see in the mirror. I don't give a shit what subculture approves or disapproves of my conduct, or what brands I should be wearing, or what super-underground indie flavor-of-the-week band I should be listening to. Fuck all that stuff.

      Actually, I will admit.. I have found life to be pretty lonely when you have no built-in friends from visibly belonging to a subculture. I'll admit it would be nice to be able to walk up to someone who looks just like me and be like "HEY, WE'RE THE SAME! LET'S GO RIDE BIKES!" Instead, I'm just a socially-retarded loner who sings to her cats.

      I'm surprised I've actually had sex before. I feel bad for all those people.

        Well, I am rather disappointed. Based on your description, I was expecting someone who looked rather Hagrid-like, and instead, you are (based on your picture) an attractive young woman. I'm beginning to think my eyesight is off. I read descriptions that look nothing like pictures, and yes, I did check, and no my glasses are not rose-colored. WTF?

        I don't think you will have any issues landing that artsy girl when you set your mind to it.

          Hey, thanks. And man, I only wish I could grow that kind of beard. I already have the hair, more or less.

          In all seriousness, though, I am really hairy and it's awesome. I've got PCOS super-hormones and haven't been touched by a razor in years. Last guy I dated liked to make fun of me, though, because I like to think I'm sooooo big and hairy and hulking, but he was soooo much bigger and hairier than me that I looked pathetic in comparison. (This guy was known to others as Yeti and Sasquatch.) So I'd roar and beat him up. Good times.

          A lot of my trouble with the ladeez is that I have absolutely zero self-confidence with them. I got shot down several times in a row as a young buck, and have never recovered from the ego blow. I am pretty much 100% convinced that no pretty ladies could ever actually find me attractive and/or dateable. It's pretty much why I've been dating guys all this time. They're really easy, I get laid, and I don't have to feel lonely. So I just keep going for them over and over instead of lining up for another string of rejection and horrible feelings of grossness and self-doubt.

          Shit sucks! I'm going to try real hard this time, though. I'm in a better place now emotionally thanks to the changes I've been making, so I think I finally have the constitution to get rejected some more (which I'm pretty sure is inevitable). We'll see what happens.

              UGH, the gay club. Went tonight for ladies night and the drag king show. Got a lot of "new girl" glances, most of which seemed super judgy. That club is so fucking cliquey. There were a handful of super pretty girls, none of which seemed at all interested in me. Everyone sat in their own little groups and didn't talk to anyone else. All the most well-known folks seem to treat their pals like family and everyone else like they don't even exist. Also, I accidentally stared at a girl's ass when she was shaking it right in front of me and then got a deathstare from her girlfriend. Whoops..

              My friend introduced me to one girl, who I guess is kind of a club institution. She is SO GODDAMN SEXY that I am not sure she actually exists. She is most likely some kind of incredible wet dream that exists only in my mind. In which case, I have the most awesome imagination ever. Like, seriously. Goddamn.

              Anyway, she was polite to me, but she's so "famous" that I'm undoubtedly not even a blip on her radar.

              The Cleveland lesbian scene blows, seriously. There's basically just this one club, and it's exactly like a high school cafeteria. The athletic girls with the sweatbands are over here, the butches are over there, the goths and scene girls are over in the corner, and pretty much everyone is paired off.

              Blah! *stomps around*

                Oh, also: I bought two new skirts and a pair of corduroy pants at the thrift store today. The skirts are great, but the pants are so small I can't even get them all the way up. I think whoever had them previously had the same issue, as they still have all the store tags on them. They are labelled an 18, but I swear they have to be a 14 in reality. I think someday I will be able to wear them, but it won't be any time soon. Which sucks because they are really nice, really fitted pants, and my legs look hot in them.

                I know that at my current rate, buying nice new clothes is ill-advised since I probably won't be able to wear them for long enough to be worth the money. But I SERIOUSLY want a pair of skinny jeans, especially if they are brown, green, or bright blue.


                Waaant!

                  My friend, a gay male, says that the LBGT club in town is the same way. He and his partner don't go anymore because the Lesbians are so mean.

                    So she is famous for being a hot lesbian? I was unaware that fame had a catagory for that. Sometimes it is nice and uncomplicated being a straight male.

                    One thing I learned over the years is that I am too old for high school bullshit. Also, with the powers of the internet no one needs to be limited to a local scene. Being pretty is not a talent. It takes no skill, special powers, or ability. Once you realize they are just as insecure and fucked up as you it really gets easier to hook up/blow them off because you are better than them.

                    Edit: that is not 'you' specifically. Just 'you' in the general sense.

                      Yeah.. From what I've been reading, it is a common story. I guess it makes sense, since groups of girls in all other situations tend to be equally catty (which is pretty much why I wasn't friends with any girls for many years). But it still sucks!

                      After thinking about it a lot, I am prettttty sure I am seriously straight-up gay. And I probably should have known for a long time, considering (w/r/t dudes):

                      - I've been most attracted to guys with tits, thick thighs, and big round butts... Uh, hello.
                      - I've always preferred gay porn to straight porn.
                      - Nearly every guy I have ever dated has said to me that they think I should really be dating girls instead, and that they are nervous that I am going to leave them for one.. To which I have always responded "Haha, that will never happen. You see, girls don't like me."
                      - Even really good guys like my most recent ex, I've felt pretty much nothing for.
                      - It has always taken extremely decent sex to make me want to keep a guy around. Without it, I feel completely ambivalent toward and even annoyed by and impatient with them. Like they have no business wasting my time with dates if they can't make it worth my while with orgasms.
                      - The only dudes I have ever truly fallen for were the ones who were extremely good in bed. The others, I tend to get more and more snippy and aggravated with until we break up.
                      - And, I've never been able to be around a dude I am dating for extended periods of time without wanting to shove him off a balcony.

                      I've always assumed this has been because I haven't found the "right one" yet. Uhhhh, yeah. No.

                          Well, she belongs to the local drag troupe (as a non-drag member). So everyone knows her, and she's basically one of the gay club royalty. And, well, she is REALLY pretty.

                          One thing I learned over the years is that I am too old for high school bullshit. Also, with the powers of the internet no one needs to be limited to a local scene.

                          Yeah, I didn't have the patience for high school bullshit even when I was in high school. I'm not giving it a pass here. I think it's really lame that the lesbian scene seems structured that way. I don't have the patience (or masochism, or dollars) to work my way up the totem pole, so I am not going to bother with the club social scene at all. I will, however, keep going to dance because it's fun.

                          I'll admit I have a boner for that one girl, but I'm pretty sure we probably have zero in common, and I don't really want to date anybody whose main calling in life is navigating social drama and being the life of the party. Talk about opposites..

                          Am I still going to ogle the fuck out of her, though? Yes. I sure am.

                            In other news, still a little squishy today. 238ish lbs. Was 236 previously. Yesterday I had mocha and fried chicken, and I've been eating pulled pork with cheese and sour cream at home, so maaaybe not the most balanced and primal-friendly diet lately. And, what with my sleep schedule being all fucked up still, and so my pill schedule is all goofed up as well.... No wonder my body is bloating. It's probably totally freaked out.

                            Luckily, my best friend seems interested in going low-carb too, so we will probably be seeking out and patronizing more primal-friendly restaurants in the future. On Saturday we're going to go do indian buffet (without the rice, obv) and then thrift some more. Looking forward to that.

                            Oh, and it is seeming more and more that I have a dairy problem. Just ate some sour cream and cheese with breakfast, and my stomach really really hurts. Also, I'm now a bucket of snot and phlegm, whereas I was not when I woke up. Mochas have been hurting me too. I guess it's time to hold a service and lay dairy to rest.
