    I Love Cheeseburgers!

    I do not think I will ever comprehend why people feel like they can be cruel and harassing to thin people. I heard a woman on the radio indignantly say "When I see those twigs [insultingly referring to thin women] I just want to break them!". Why would you want to break me...

    Tall guys are perfection. It just seems that all short guys are so sweet, I'm myself 5'7 so there is guys that are shorter than me and it sucks. And every tall guy is taken.

    I am 5'9. Not that tall but decently tall for a woman. Still limits the heels I have been able to wear on dates over the years. Weird to tower over your date.

    I wish I was little bit taller, I wish I was a baller, I wish I had a girl who looked good I would call her. I wish I had a rabbit with a hat and a bat and a six four Impala.
