Posted:being short is GOOD. I get cheap clothes and let to the front at gigs and allowed to sit on people's ahoulders and stuff.

i can also get away with stuff cos noone sees me do it... tongue

sometimes i get trod on, but the other stuff makes up for it so i don't mind.

SHORT PEOPLE UNITE!!!! and get back at the tall people who left us out of their club. ubbcrying


I had a dream that my friend had a
strong-bad pop up book,
it was the book of my dreams.

You have to be short, cute, and female. THEN you can get away with everything but murder (and sometimes even that!)

Posted:coleman you know to many threads on hop it is all to clear you spend to much time on here, and that you brain is just to BIG!

now i rekon that to remby this HOP should be limited to a 5min period, and that you should have some of your brain removed, mainly the parts you dont use, eg ur looking bad and being crap part, and donate them to spinning research to see why you are such a spick spinner!

Posted:lightning doesn't look tall, he looks hot....er, i mean...

so ya, this short people's club ubbangel

i don't sit on people's shoulders....they just let me get in front of them at all the concerts. so i quite luckily happen to get to be front row in almost all GA concerts biggrin

and ya, getting to sit cross-legged in planes rocks! and you don't bump your knees against the seat. the only bummer i've found so far is that in cars, people try to stick us in the middle seat in the back. i always fight it though biggrin i usually end up in someone's lap if it's that crowded, and i certainly don't mind that wink


I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

Posted:Pounce just made me blush. redface

So that wall was about 5' tall and we tried to get a photo of me standing behind it with my arms resting on it, but I had to stand on my tippy toes and my shoulders had to be so shrugged up to get my arms to rest on it that we decided to kneel me in front of it instead.

Most of the guys I know are taller than me. And in the U.K. I feel like they make the boys extra-long there.

(Wait, that last statement could be misinterpreted, huh? ubblol ) ubbangel spank

Posted:There are loads of advantages to being short.....

Pants fit better
More dating options (I generall like the person I date to be taller than me)
You can fit in the back seat of any car
Your boobs look bigger (if you're a girl and you have big boobs. Which I don't but if I did...)
People like to pick you up and swing you around a lot. Or give you piggy back rides. ubblove Love the piggy back rides.
