Think large!

I just had an amazingly funny realization.

I truly AM an amazon.

I'm over 6 feet tall and only have one breast.

I should take up the bow and arrow.

Are you missing the proper breast?

Actually, yes :) I am missing my right breast.

At least for another month I am.

You definitely need to take up archery now.

I remember when I first learned why the Amazons cut off their breast. The next time anyone called me an Amazon, I said to them, "I'm sorry, I have both my breasts and I can't shoot a bow and arrow for shit. So, don't call me that."

But then again .. I'm really sensitive about my height. :\

I was probably 25 before I came to terms with being over 6 feet. In early high school, I always said I was 5'12" :) I slouched, wore baggy clothes, anything to downplay my height.

Now, it rocks to be a tall, strong woman. I will now proudly wear heels and walk tall.

It's impossible to downplay being 6'4. There's just no way to hide it. I've been trying to find shoes for the past month now, to wear to work, and I can't find any at all because for some reason I'm up to a men's 14. I don't know how that happened. They don't make nice shoes that big. :(

No way to hide 6'2" either. That's why I now revel in it.

What would a man's 14 be in women's? I know that Nordstom carries most of their shoes up to size 14 or so.

Also, I know this is a WEIRD recommendation, but we used to have a shoe shop in North Dallas that catered to....transvestites and female impersonators. They carried women's shoes that men were able to wear. I saw up to a size 16 there. You don't happen to know if there is anything like that in your area, do you?

Then there is always online:

among others.

Actually, it's funny that you mentioned the transvestite route because my mom has been looking at sites for just that reason. A men's 14 would be a women's 16 .. and I've been looking for that, too, but usually all I can find on the transvestite sites are platform boots or something really tacky, lol. But thanks so much for the links! I'm about to look at them now. :)

It's changed a lot since I lived there, but I still visit about once a year.

It's a beautiful area, and there are some good people there (many on my friend's list). It can sometimes get boring and isn't as liberal overall as Indy is. Hey - at least it isn't as cold as Indy! :)

If you are someone that likes the outdoors, it's a great area. There are a lot of artsy-type people there, yet not a large amount of art culture. It's more home-grown.

Do you know where in town you are moving? Certain areas are much better than others. Like any city, there are some dicey areas, some ritzy areas, and then just the in between.

BTW - love the 'Dance' photo.
