And your curves are even better in person.

Well, you've never seen me naked, but you can always ask your husband....

11th Apr 2005, 03:37

anathemad says:

I've seen pictures. Regardless I never heard any complaints from him.

11th Apr 2005, 03:43

bronxelf says:

And I weigh less now. *L*

pandairo says:

curves look good to me ;)

11th Apr 2005, 03:52

Speaking as a male heterosexual, I've typically not found attractive the notion of making love to a lawn chair.

I will have to be much drunker than I am to post pictures of my own curves.

bronxelf says:

I just accepted several facts a long time ago:

1. I will always be short.

2. I will always have curves.

I cope.

11th Apr 2005, 04:17

anathemad says:

1. I will always be short.

2. I will always have curves.

I'm with you on both of those.

11th Apr 2005, 04:21

bronxelf says:

I just realized. I should have posted the corset photo instead. *LMAO*

11th Apr 2005, 04:23

anathemad says:

Go. Do. I'm off to bed but I'll oggle you more tomorrow.

11th Apr 2005, 04:33

bronxelf says:

I'll talk to you in the AM. I'll still be here working.

11th Apr 2005, 04:35

AnguisetteOwner says:

It all looks good to me. *shrug*

making progress, I hope?

bronxelf says:

Just scanning the last lighting tech detail. Thankfully theyre not asking for working drawings-- just really basic detail stuff.

beth says:

how's it going? i can't believe it's getting up for school day already. rubbbbish. i don't even see how you could think curves were ever bad. who wants to fuck a girl with the body of a ten year old boy?

11th Apr 2005, 06:45

bronxelf says:

Oh I didnt think they were-- but Chenav had made this comment in my ice cream thread....

Anyway, it fucking sucks. Im grumpy, I'm annoyed, and I have seven fucking pages left. SEVEN.

11th Apr 2005, 06:47

pandairo says:

could be worse, it could be 8! :)

11th Apr 2005, 06:48

beth says:

just gotta keep going darlin'

11th Apr 2005, 06:50

bronxelf says:

Whether it's 8, 1, or 6 it doesnt matter. Not Done, is Not Done, which gets me the same result. There is only Finished, and Not Finished.

11th Apr 2005, 06:50

bronxelf says:

Beth: just really fucking had it. Im tired of this. Im tired of no sleep. Tired of lots of things, really. Need two more days.

Going to print another page. Seven left.

11th Apr 2005, 06:51

beth says:

hehe. it's four weeks til i finish my course. just you wait.. i'll be right here crying into my ice cream.

11th Apr 2005, 06:54

bronxelf says:

Thing is, I am going from this, straight back to writing 100 pages of thesis, and a metric fuck ton of photography.

11th Apr 2005, 07:02

bronxelf says:

I have another really nice photo of that dress, too. can you believe it? silk, brand new, on ebay for 20 USdollars.

And thank you. :)

11th Apr 2005, 07:19

Euphro says:

Very nice picture of you. NIce dress too :)

11th Apr 2005, 07:34

bronxelf says:

Thanks. :)

mermaid1 says:

we need to see the other picture, you look stunning

11th Apr 2005, 08:08

Mmmm...... I've been looking for a model for my website ;-)

11th Apr 2005, 08:12

bronxelf says:


Here's the other shot.

Mike: I did modeling like that for a long time. :)

11th Apr 2005, 08:19

I'll send you some lingerie from my site over ;-)

11th Apr 2005, 08:21

mermaid1 says:

utterly gorgeous !! I love that dress.....* puts hand up and insists on being first to have it when you throw it out.....a very good reason being your only 1.5 inches taller so no need to chop 3 feet off the bottom :D

11th Apr 2005, 08:25

bronxelf says:

Mermy: I got way lucky with the dress. It fit on the first go, so long as I have heels on. I know how you feel, always needing to have everything shortened.

Mike: Wouldn't you be better served by someone a) closer and b) younger?

11th Apr 2005, 08:33

Closer? Yes.

Younger? No. We do a range of big knickers too ;-)

11th Apr 2005, 08:37

Chenav says:

All this "curves" topic because of a French comment...
Damn French people, they should all rot in hell !

11th Apr 2005, 09:03

Chenav says:

oops I was not logged in, I posted the last comment of course :p

11th Apr 2005, 09:05

bronxelf says:

It's okay, I'll edit it.

11th Apr 2005, 09:07

Chenav says:

I like curves on the road when I am riding my bike too. :)
I should really rot in hell.

11th Apr 2005, 09:24

mermaid1 says:

oh shoosh chenav and get on and play me some fat rock on the Les Paul :)

11th Apr 2005, 09:25

Groovicron says:

Curves on a woman bad? What kind of crazy talk is that?!!

Curves are what make women so much nicer to look at then blokes!

11th Apr 2005, 09:39

Chenav says:

Groovicron: French are crazy you know. We even eat frogs and snails.

Mermaid1: difficult since I am in the office right now

11th Apr 2005, 09:44

mermaid1 says:

perfect show me some air guitar :D

11th Apr 2005, 09:45

rassilon7 says:

Grrrrr looks good to me.

11th Apr 2005, 10:51

Joe says:

curves are a necessity as far as I'm concerned, I don't find skinny stick-like women attractive in the least, for me, it's all about the different between waist and hips

11th Apr 2005, 10:54

bronxelf says:

I think for me, it's more just about acceptance. I realized many years ago I would never be tall. I would never be boyish. I would never have narrow hips or shoulders. This is the body I have. It's the one I have to live with. No matter how much weight I would ever lose, my hips are never going to be 32", because my skeleton says they're 36". I just refuse to make myself insane over not looking like some girl in a magazine. I stopped getting taller when I was 11. I've had a long time to get used to the view at this height.

11th Apr 2005, 10:58

Chenav says:

Mermaid1: this is an intro I played yesterday with my sampler and guitars (it is not from me, I copied a Japanese song from an unknown band :) )
Japanese guys rock sometimes :)

Here it is:

That's gotta go down as one of the funniest stories, evar, but only you and I really get it. *LOL*

11th Apr 2005, 11:10

Helen says:

Yay for curves!

Yay for bodies, whatever they are blessed with.

But most importantly -- yay for Haagen Dazs!

11th Apr 2005, 11:59

Euphro says:

And a curse on hollywood/advertising/the media for making women feel that it should be any other way.

mermaid1 says:

ooooh Chenav I like I like....I`m definitely emailing u over some of our stuff when I get a sec if thats ok with u of course?

11th Apr 2005, 13:24

Chenav says:

Mermaid1: no problem with me.

Adam says:

You are gorgeous, anyone who says otherwise is either a fool or blind. Curves make the world go 'round.

11th Apr 2005, 21:04

bronxelf says:

Adam: Thank you. :) I actually had only posted this photo as a joke-- (though the photo really is of me). I *never* thought it would get over 300 views. I don't quite know how to take that... *L*

Darum: Good or not, that's what I got. I just refuse to make myself miserable over the fact that I didn't get one of those tall, willowy bodies when bodies were being handed out.

12th Apr 2005, 16:46

540air says:

Nothing wrong with curves as far as I'm concerned. You look fine as you are bronx :)

12th Apr 2005, 16:48

Lyzardly says:

Any time I find myself wishing for the "tall, willowy body" that I don't have, I read this and rejoice in my curves.

12th Apr 2005, 16:54

bronxelf says:

*grin* Not so very long ago, someone once described me in similar terms.

I wouldn't mind being slightly taller, but I am glad I am not built like a stick figure.

12th Apr 2005, 17:00

Chenav says:

Stop complaining damn it, bronxelf !

I was called "Hey, Jon Bon Jovi !" yesterday, it is much more annoying than whatever curves !

Life sucks, I tell you :)

12th Apr 2005, 17:07

bronxelf says:

I replied to that post. I dont think you look like bon jovi, or cobain.

12th Apr 2005, 17:51

alfie says:

It's the hair chenav, just the hair - truth be told you're more of a
Corey Feldman mate ;)

12th Apr 2005, 18:31

Chenav says:

alfie you are so meeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaan to me ! I got better eyes than this cow

12th Apr 2005, 18:33

alfie says:

12th Apr 2005, 18:35

rassilon7 says:

I didnt know you can insert pics into replies.... or is this a special Alfie power....... (steve cowers behind sofa, amazed by such wizardry)

12th Apr 2005, 18:35

Chenav says:

Alfie: My hair is blonder, longer and sweeter 'cause I am worth it :p

12th Apr 2005, 18:37

alfie says:

12th Apr 2005, 18:46

rassilon7 says:

AH is that like latin? or some other Arkane language :)

12th Apr 2005, 18:48

Chenav says:

Alfie: you get such a Legend in London ? tell me when it is !

12th Apr 2005, 18:49

alfie says:

we do, he's here on the 18th however, so it's quite near
Rj Himself It hardly seems fair since Amandarin won't be here though...

12th Apr 2005, 18:52

bronxelf says:

Alfie: You dont look like Corey Feldman.

You know EXACTLY who you look like, thank you very much.

/me needs to renew passport and plot with Amanda...

12th Apr 2005, 18:54

Chenav says:

Amandarin is a fan of Ron ? :)

12th Apr 2005, 18:55

bronxelf says:

Alfie: AHAHAHAHA On the 18th? That's the night I go to see NIN. No videos for YOU.


12th Apr 2005, 18:57

Chenav says:

Come on Amanda, don't be shy.
We know you admire Ron so much :)
