    Just wanted a new name and it was the only thing I could think of. But it DOES sound yummy.

    Well, I'll tell ya. (Others here have heard this) It was a hot balmy night in June, 2005. I was at a bar with a dance floor. I was taking a break, fanning myself with a promo flyer. Annnd scene begins

    Him: You're hot

    Me: Yeah. That's why I stopped dancing

    Him: You'd still be hot

    Me: . B-

    Him: What?

    Me: For the line. It was horrible, worthy of a D, but you knew that and you're cute, so I give you a B-

    We hung out the rest of the night. Exchanged phone numbers. By the time I pulled into my driveway, he called me and asked if I wanted to go to Perkins with him. He picked me up (Though looking back, stupid idea, I could have been killed) and we've been together ever since.

    Did I mention that before going to the bar, I had made out with an actor friend at a house party...

    For it to remain trendy and on top of the current fashion styles with the straight size clothing lines & fashion industry.
    Commercial designers think that all fat women wanna wear maxi dresses, ponchos, and flowy clothes all day, but more young women wanna look youthful and trendy just like their thin peers and it's totally possible!

    I enjoy seeing my fellow plus sized sistas fitting into straight sized garments (i.e. ASOS) and rockin' the HELL out of it!

    That's why for me I've been sketching simple body-con designs since they'll never make and sell it in my size and I hope to sew and make some for myself and a friend.

    On the language question:
    I pretty much grew up watching American sitcoms like Sanford and Son, Growing pains, the Jeffersons etc and of course the music. English is also part of every curriculum in high-school but then everybody kind of speaks English. The movies and songs have an influence.

    I was singing Rick James' Give it to me" only to find out just recently what I was singing.

    When I studied Computer Science at the University of Amsterdam 90% of the books were in English, so you had to know the language.
