Oh, right. :rolleyes: :biggrin:
It did stay on topic longer than usual. :redface:

Pattylou...still waiting for that shoe size.

Oh dear. We aren't approaching the shoe event horizon, are we? (takes several hesitating steps away from the keyboard...)
No no no no, there's a very good reason for her question. *Whispers to PattyLou* Just say size 8.

Relative to the length of its creative germination period, it was a damn GOOD poem! :grumpy:

LOL.

You can call me Patty, everyone, though I don't mind Pattylou. If I had thought to call myself "The Patty" (or even "The Party," as that is an easy typo from The Patty and goofy enough to be fun if not accurate) I would have.

Hmmm... I am guessing my shoe size depends on what country I'm from. I'll have to google to find a suitably obscure response. Though I've alreay amply demostrated my Yankihood.

While I'm googling, Evo, I have a question for you and anyone else here. Would you drink a beverage made primarily from squeezed lemons?

My shoe size is between 5 and 248. For the present I'll go with 36, but I won't tell you which country that is.

It has to do with an odd fact that surfaced in another thread a while back. You must answer honestly.

Not primarily as in volume but as one of a few ingredients, yes.

Ooh, creative germination period. You should put that in a poem. :approve: Try a limerick.
There once was a creative germination period... Or maybe an ode to the creative germination period.

Well, they were the first words that came to my head?

I'll work on that limerick, though..

It's in the top menu. I'm curious about this too.

Oh very well.

But I have to preface this with the admission that I really *don't* like physics. I like Biology. (I also wish to point out that the thread is from last September.... heheheh.... )

But in the geeky spirit of gathering data, I'll admit to being a size eight. Of course, with only about 5 female respondents on that thread, the odds of all 8's but one - isn't too unusual.

I'm short, too. If that matters. Not quite 5 foot 3.

Oh dear, depending on the country, I believe 39 would be the correct answer. :frown:

Honestrosewater, we don't know your shoe size and you're still posting? :surprised

Ok, we found out that all of the women posting in GD had a size 8 shoe, except for Tsu, with a size 7, but that's ok because she's Tsu. It was rather odd.

That was the next question. :tongue: You fit in the average height as well.

My daughter wears a size nine, my mother wears a 6.

I checked shoes- 9.5, slippers- 9, tennis shoes- 9, sandals- 9. I guess that's a 9. I'm an anomaly. Oh, and I'm 5'8.
This means that I have a bigger brain, right? :tongue2: I'm sure I read that somewhere... can't find the link just now. :rolleyes: Oh, nevermind, my being blonde probably negates any gain from shoe size. :frown:

Aww, being blonde is okay. :biggrin: It means you're even smarter to have overcome such a handicap as blondeness. :approve: I only have some bad days when the roots dig deeper into my brain than usual and I get extra ditzy. :tongue: But you're way too tall for us. .... Oh wait, that means you can reach the top shelf! Okay, you can stick around, we need someone who can reach the stuff way up high.

PattyLou is just the right height and shoe size to be one of the twins...uh...quintuplets...or is that sextuplets??? of the sisterhood (even if some of us were born a decade or so apart from one another). You'll have to settle for being the little sister, who happens to be bigger than all of us. :biggrin:

As in lemonade? Nope. :yuck: It's either too sour, or they add so much sugar it's way too sweet. But if it's something like a whiskey sour with lemon in it, mmmmm hmmmmm. :biggrin:

Woo hoo! :biggrin: Kind of like Little John from Robin Hood. Er, maybe that's not the best example. Blonde moment. :redface:

Also, Patty, the PF clothing department just contacted me. They need to know what size habbit you require. And do you prefer clean or dirty habbits?

LOL.

Well, normally around the house I wear something like this:

But I'm sure whatever you have lying around will be just fine.

(Oh, I'm going to regret this.)

Hey, you must go to the same shop as MIH for your habbits. :approve: I prefer the traditional cotton this time of year; that pleather gets really sticky in the summer heat. :yuck: :rofl:
