[the weather today is |i must post this.]

I just had the sort of encounter that will make any woman feel like hot sex for the rest of the day.

I was walking down the street and a good-looking middle-aged priest was walking in the other direction. I didn't notice him until we passed each other, but I think he must have been watching me for a while. When our eyes met, he jumped, blushed violently, and looked determinedly at his shoes.

Ohohoho. Sinful thoughts, Father?

Also, I have discovered that none of my (size four US) trousers fit properly anymore. I am a size two (US). I have not been a size two since I was about fifteen. On the one hand, yay, I've lost weight! On the other hand, trouser shopping, what a nightmare. On the other other hand, if I lose more weight, I'll be a size zero (US). What the hell is up with size zero. Does that mean you cease to exist on the plane of trouser material?

Priest = cute.

I never got the whole size 0 thing either. Why start with 0 and not 1? So weird!

Don't they do junior women's sizes in the odd numbers? 1,3,5, etc? Why is that?

Go forth and blush no more, Father.

As for the pants, fear not the oblivion of size 0. I will loan you some of my weight before it comes to that. Would 5-10 pounds do it?

What's with the weight loss? When I lived in England, I noticed that my friends and I drank more, and ate more, but we continued to lose weight. Living on the third floor? Walking just about everywhere? It was very, very, nice indeed, whatever the cause. Enjoy the new trousers.

Yeeow! Fortunately, I think I'd rather watch hot priests licking each other than attempt to lick one myself.

US 2 => UK 4,
US 4 => UK 6,
US 6 => UK 8

and so on! I've occasionally had trouble finding UK clothing below size 8 in shops, which is weird to me because British people are by and large so much thinner than Americans. Perhaps they run out of stock? o_O

Wow, you are definitely teh hott. I'd be glowing all day if that happened to me.

And jesus, lady. You must be small-boned, cause I am skinny and wear a size 5/7, depending on brand. And I believe I am at least a couple inches shorter than you.

I hate having to get new pants. I was a size 9 for a while when on ortho-evra, and exactly one month after I finally ditched all my size 5's and most of my size 7's, I lost weight again. It is ridiculous that I weigh 108-ish lbs, have never weighed more than 120, and still have TWO sets of fat pants.

..I was a size 0 up until I was about 22, and really, I did not look so hot. I look at pictures of me from back then and I looked pretty unhealthy and not all that attractive, unless you're into junkies. Eat more potatoes and bread. I would hate it if you ceased to exist.

Hee hee, I totally know what you're talking about. My current bf used to be a priest and when we first got together it came out in the wash that he had the hots for me when he was a man of the cloth. I was even the subject of a few confessions.

It was pretty surreal, but kind of neat at the same time.

See, that's extremely sexy. When a guy who's taken vows of celibacy tells you that he couldn't help thinking naughty things about you - I mean, it's like being the forbidden donut.

btw - if you can find a specific pant size, you could always fall back on pantaloons. as i understand it, pantaloons are all the rage in the hipper dance clubs, over there, now days.

Oh, man... I have a priest at the church I go to locally that I swear is in love with me... Everytime I see him (which isn't often, maybe twice a year) he'll make the subtlest of comments, or just hug me a little too long but teh latest time was crazy... on Christmas he said, "Danielle! So good too see you again! You know, I see you every night in my bedroom anyway, I have your picture on my wall." WTF?!? We went white-water rafting together like 8 years ago with a group of churchgoers and he must have a picture of me in his room of all of us? I don't know... He is quite attractive, though... *naughty grin*

Hm, I could see that being either sexy or creepy, depending on the delivery. Heh.

Speaking of hot priests, you have seen the priest pin-up calendar yes?

Hell yes! If you scroll down to the bottom, the distributor left a comment saying he'd linked to the discussion on the site, but it looks like they've revamped it since then. Le sigh.

What the hell is up with size zero. Does that mean you cease to exist on the plane of trouser material?

Possibly it means you cease to exist because those of us with big fat asses kill you. Not sure though. My skeleton sans skin/muscle/organs/etc is probably a size 6 minimum. Alternately, the number stands for the amount of ass you have, and a 0 means you are assless. (I'm making all this up. We all know it.)

Assless would be bad. I don't want to be assless. My boyfriend is an ass man. He would insist that I eat cake before that would ever happen.

A lot of European women are assless, even the ones who aren't ridiculously thin. It's a very strange body shape.

hope the same thing happens to me!

I'm going to England in February and I hope I loose weight and not put on. Alot of people tell me they put on weight when they went to England, you're the first I've heard that's lost!

Were they visiting, or did they live there? I've lost weight because I don't have a car and I have to walk everywhere. There's no lift in my building, so I'm always taking the stairs. Also, I cook at home a lot, which is generally healthier. Although I think walking everywhere is the largest contributing factor.

Damn. Go you. Being the forbidden doughnut, indeed.

And no ceasing to exist. (Seriously, take care of yourself.)
