I have to say, this thread is not ageing well.

LOL! I actually had to read my post twice to understand which typo you meant.

 

Guess, it's a little freudian slip - mwuahahahahaha!

I had to look this up. Wow.

I wish you full on success with it and hope you can kick your asthma(?) in the nads with this!!!

*bookmarked* I don't think I've truly understood the green line, but I like the tool.

It's actually not too far off from the projection of the CC tool in terms of when the goal might be achieved, but it's more visual and a good motivator.

I've only just jumped back onto the wagon so once I actually made some progress I'll probably get more fitting results.

Thanks!

Victorians invented the safety coffin. They were terrified of being buried alive (partly because I did happen occasionally)

Glad to see that I wasn't too far off my my suggestion of coast dresses. I am short and very buxom so coast stuff never fits me but I used to drag my tall skinny friend there if she had an occasion approaching. it was great fun to make try on lots of very glamorous stuff. :-)

I wouldn't worry too much about 3kg. That's usually not enough to go up one dresssize and you also don't know where exactly those three kilos will manifest - maybe youll get a nice pert butt. ;-)

just in case you do feel like trying the more goth approach, I just found this for a mere tenner (!) at top shop online (only size 4 and 6 left but you do look like a size 6 girl) I think that's a cool dress that can go either way - rock or prom - depending on what you wear with it. 

You also look quite hairy in your profile picture kikt!

Isn't there H&M in England???  Or Zara???

And there I thought the long hair goes well with my snout...

H&M and Zara are both in the UK but I think compared to some other high street brand the lucky bastards have over there they are boring as hell. :-)

No idea. But I have a sister who is 7 years older and looks pretty fine for being 50years. My mom looks her age but that's because she's been in chronic pain for almost twenty years now and that just takes its toll eventually.

To be honest, if it wasn't for the way society reacts to women over 40 (companies by not hiring you and men by simply not seeing you) I wouldn'T mind my age. I don't miss my self in my teens and early twens at all. Jesus, so many insecurities....adn usually so groundless, too. Try not to waste too much energy on them, sweety. <3

Kikt - thank you so much! That's so sweet of you to say, yes I am quite skinny but like I said I shouldn't be :/ trying to regain the weight I lost last year at the moment. I agree, I tend to get taken for someone much younger sometimes and it's quite annoying but at least I will age slowly haha ;)

You're welcome but I'm afraid I have to add a bit of delusionment: I'm afraid unless you are smoking or sunbathing like crazy ageing is mostly about genes.

I had this conversation with my friend tow nights ago (I'm 42, she's 43 so we do know what ageing actually looks like in practice... :-/ ) I'm short and plump. She's tall and skinny - and looks a fair bit older than me (at least in the face). Both our lifestyles are a bit crap (although she eats healthier than I do) but we both age like or moms. So keep an eye on yours to know where you're heading ;-)

I just looked at your profile. Good Lord, you are pretty!! You look like a fairy princess with those big eyes and the Rapunzel hair. :-) So, really, the challenge is not to make you look beautiful but to make sure you don't look like a little girls dressing in your mom's clothes. 

I'm taking back the Lombardi suggestion. It might just swamp you with the different textures and the black. But the goddess short dress in nude might still be worthwhile looking at.

From the vast selection at dorothy Perkins: What do you think of this? or this?   They seem a tad short (I'm old-fashioned, I think prom dresses shouldn't be too high above the knee) but I like the mix of black and nude in the first one. I'm not so sure about the pearls etc on the second one. might look too cheap and 'birthday present' like, but I like the cut. Very young and flirty but still festive but would definitely need darker accessories.

And I know it'S probably wayyyy over budget with almost 200UKP but I'm adding it anyway. The nude might be too warm, though.

I'm not sure why I kept getting so stuck with nude and black. I think some black is good to make sure you don'T look like a figure skater but you just don't seem to be the kind of girl who looks best in full on black.

I chose the flare-y skirts because you seem very skinny so a pencil-style skirt might look wrong or at least too much like office wear.

Any other colours or styles you like?

Hm...the cheaper (or rather: less expensive, starts at 65UKP and quickly goes over 100) dresses at Coast are glamorous and most definitely adylike but understated enough that you can wear them again for other occasions.

There's a shop at Oxford Circus. If you add a 'younger' accessories it won'T look too grown-up.

The page is being troublesome at the moment or I'd link it but there is a great and somewhat edgy dress with black lace called Lombardi dress - if you don't ant to show so much skin (it looks ver short on the model but for normal women they are all more or less kneelength) and if you want to show more look at the Goddess dress - also in nude.

Both are pretty fine, imo, for 115UKP

If it has to be below 100 you can hit the high street. Dorothy Perkins always has some glamorous dresses, Topshop of course (kind of pricey again but great accessories. Really the best accessories in Europe, I think). Marks and Spencer seems to become less frumpy with every year, too.

And it's always worthwhile to check at a local TK-Maxx. I hardly ever find something useful (or if I do it's never in my size) but there's usually a TON of occasion dresses.

Her book came out! I bought it yesterday!

Awesome!

Perfect gift for my friend.

I looked at her two entries from this year and was a bit sad about the depression one. I thought she had taken a break from the blog because of the book but it seems that she was very deep in The Hole.

She's such a fab girl. It makes me sad, that she has such a rough time.

Yes, it does look like the practice of a GP or similar, doesn't it? My guess is that they probably inherited it.

 

Ok, if you knwo that video try this for a laugh. http://terriblerealestateagentphotos.com/

 

I've been workign like a madwoman the past two weeks to make a kind of self-imposed deadline and made a new website - all by myself (but with a template) including dozends of video reformats and uploads and URL portation etc etc etc. Now: I'm having a strong sense of anti-climax and feel a bit lost.

So I opened a bottle of Barolo and entertain myself with some online funnies.

If anyone else has something to offer, please share!

I wonder if  hyperboleandahalf has done anything new apart from her book that has come out (or will soon)?

Can you see your regular primary provider and have them order an xray or maybe some nerve conduction studies first, then if those show something get the referral to the specialist, who would probably start by ordering these same tests.

Sounds like a form of repetitive motion injury.  My carpal tunnel actually effects my shoulder more than wrists I also get bad elbow pain - so it's like my body deflects the pain I would be causing my wrists and sends it up my arm instead.  If I do too much "mouse clicking" then I get pain in thumbs and hand

O.O Oh.....really?

God, yes, that one was incredibly funny. 

And occasionally, when I come across the word 'click', some part of my brain does indeed murmur 'too many clicks!!' :-D

I'm in favor of hunter's rights. I think it's a worthy pursuit, bonding experience for families, a fairly humane method of population control and a number of other redeeming qualities.

 

I like eating deer and I'm glad someone else actually enjoys creeping through cold nights to shoot some but 'bonding experience for families'???

So a family is sitting jolly-ly around a carcass and gutting it while the kiddos are having a 'gore-fight'?  I'm getting a ton of images for this and all of them are pretty bizarre...

*peers at thread* Oh, ok, just to make this more colorful

To me a cat that lives exclusively indoors is like a bird living exclusively inside a cage. Do-abel, even normal to an animals that hasn't know anything else in its life, but depressing in principle.

At school I learned that it's the prey that determines the population of hunters and not the other way around. So, cats are the exception to that law?

I guess it'S different for Australia since cats aren't a native species (I think) but over here the bird population is more hampered by lack of nesting grounds and the loss of wilderness which means the loss of insectlife and thus food for the birds.
