    You know what I got instead of catcalls when I was in Iraq? Marriage proposals. Like, a shitton. Most of them were joking or wanted to immigrate to the US, I think, but there were a few who wanted me to stay in Iraq. One dude wanted me for his second wife. It was the weirdest shit.

    And Didge, I agree with you about the horns. It makes me jump every time, and then I'm trying to figure out why they're honking at me when I ain't done a damn thing wrong. So, as a method of flirting, it fails. As a method for getting me to swear at them, it's extremely successful.

    Do any of y'all have makeup tips for making oneself look older? I'm thinking makeup for job interviews, here. I would like interviewers to believe that I am really 27, but I'm kind of stuck with a baby face.

    Man, I know that feeling. I got carded yesterday when buying alcohol (which turned out to a needless purchase as my friends brought their own, but whatever) and it made me realise that I can either shave and look like a kid or keep it on and look like a crazed vagrant.

    Boths looks have their ups and downs, I imagine. And it occurs to me that "grow a beard!" is exactly the opposite of helpful advice so I'll stop there I think

    I look like I'm 19 forever and honestly at this point I just kind of deal with it and in a way enjoy it.

    God yes, I'm thinking of getting more teal/brown into my wardrobe.

    It's a pity that Tippy Thai didn't have a good teal canvas colour! I went for the same bag as Viv and WaM in the listed colours (pear + black) as I really do have enough purples/blues already. Plus, greens go quite nicely with purple. :)

    I have a round baby-face, though I am also more on the tall & curvy side so I'm not often mistaken for a teen, just a bit younger than I am. It's quite nice, really; a little more hassle to have to constantly show ID, but I'd prefer that to looking older than my years for sure!

    Dude, if I could grow a beard, I would. At least then I would stand out in a sea of applicants.

    yesss! post pictures when you get it!

    I really like the clutches posted, but I could never actually own one because I just know I would lose it. I have to have some kind of strap to attach it to myself. I have something like this for when I don't want to have a big purse and my essentials don't fit in my pockets (mine was half the price though! and a different pattern, but I can't find it online anymore.)

    I'm all about shoulder straps, myself! Hehe, all of my bags are giant. :)

    I always worry when I wear a pencil skirt that I will encounter a steep set of stairs and have to walk up them sideways like a crab. It doesn't stop me, but its in the back of my mind!

    What's a pencil skirt and why does it make stairs a challenge?

  • EdcrabEdcrab Registered User
    Don't do it! Someone will YouTube it as "Mad crab lady goes up stairs.avi"

    And that someone will probably be Sil. Having planned this very moment!

    I do the really classy thing and hike my skirt up a bit so i have more freedom of movement

    (maybe not the best solution)

    This is one! Its tight on the thighs, so you can't get a long stride, but makes your arse look good.

    I could always hike it up, that's true, Bits!

    when you curse I always have a laugh! There doesn't look like there's much movement in those.

    There's not. Its more a "taxi to dinner table" kind of skirt. No impromptu jogging or hurdles.

    Talk everyone else into coming to work in sweatpants. Then you'll look less slobby in comparison.
