Bruiser

Last weekend I had the 1st of 2 baby showers for my sister-in-law, (the next one is this weekend). I bought a skirt online at a brand new fat girl website called, www.alight.com. I really liked their stuff and was lucky to find an adorable skirt. It was shipped and I wore it. But, the problem with the skirt was that it was a fuller skirt and therefore made me look fuller than I really am. Solution? I stuffed myself into a girdle and tying that skirt so tight around me that I couldn't breath. We all need to suffer for fashion sometime, and this was my time.

The result: 3 hours later when I returned home I had a huge bruise, as if I was wearing a big bruised belt. It's been almost a week and it's still there, but I must say it looks lovely with my brown belt.

Hi, Any chance we can see a pic of your big belly?

I don't think that's a bruise. It sounds like africanus negrolitus, which is caused by insulin or something.

I'm not sure what anonymous #1 intentions are with the belly pic request. I would like to see a picture of both of you and Lindsey, so I have a better idea of what you look like as I read your wonderful blog. I understand that you probably don't want your picture on the web for every creep out there to see. Well, I have a solution if you would be so kind. Why not post a picture of yourself in a Halloween costume? That way we your humble readers can know a little more about who we're reading about while you still remain anonymous.

somewhat beside the point, I would recommend www.bandlu.com as another good place to get fashionable stuff in bigger sizes.

Did you know that if you wear one of those for a night of dancing, you end up with not only bruises, but you can even bleed? Voice of experience X( - but goddam if I didn't look hott!
