She Walks in Beauty

I am neither mad, bad, or dangerous to know. Except when I am, which isn't very often

I wish I had not grown to a reasonable height. 5'4" seems to be the optimal height. Byron and Martin Amis have something in common but the former had the advantage of a club foot, the lucky bastard.

I'm becoming more Shortist by the day. Death to the dwarves.

I was far too tall all my life, and rarely at eye level.

I am rather attached to 5'4'' personally. Always been a fine height for me. And where would Snow White be without her dwarves?

Death to the Dwarves - does this include women? Bet that unnecessary female poetry reader is only 4'10''.

Thanks for the link. My slapping hand had been itching from lack of use. That's the "irritating silly cow" female slapping hand....

I'm conjuring with the vid...fancies her Literature prof, I'd guess. And herself, of course. Those BIIIIG eyes. Oh my. Did he fall for it? You betcha!

I'm 5'3 1/2.

Is that optimal enough for you?

I have no problem with short women. It's the short men I plan to cull, the aggressive little buggers.


Her eyes are 4'10".


Crap reading, but give her dues. Big eyes, no enunciation, and a refreshing lack of background music.


She can join my tutorial group any day. Literary porn anyone?


You are an eh saying Canuck, and thus as sub optimal as is it possible to be.

I am a 5' 10" girlie. They've only recently started making clothes for me!

What annoys me most is all the short women specifying that they only want to date tall men. Who are we supposed to go out with?

Not that I haven't dated a couple of men shorter than me, and they've always been more self-conscious about it than I have, funnily enough. My current beau is a pleasing 6' - one of the first men I've ever been able to kiss without either of us ending up with a crick in our neck! Happily he's not a pain in the neck in other ways either. So far.
