I am feeling a bit better, but I just can't be bothered... You know?

Nothing of interest to report.

I thought it was Wednesday today, but it's not. *disappointed*

I am rubbish, I know.


Oh wait - did you know the world's tallest woman is Chinese..?!

    Wha..? Tallest woman? I didn't know that. You must not be feeling toooo bad if you're spouting obscure facts!

    Yep, she is 7.8ft tall and wears size-57 shoes! A shoe-maker is sending her some boats, oops, I mean, shoes.

    Wow. She had to have shoes imported? Do they not make custom shoes in China? I remember in VN that nearly all shoes were made to fit and that my mom never had trouble buying shoes until she came to America.

    LOL Yes I had heard of her, but nothing much. I wonder how that happened - is it genetic or does she have a tumour on her pituitary gland?

    Never mind.

    I just read the article.

    *Feels silly*


    Boso - European size 57, ahem.
    I'm a UK 3 which is 36...although I found and bought 35 in Italy.

    Nikki, I don't know, I would have thought so.
    I have one foot bigger than the other, so custom made shoes would be handy, if they weren't so dear!

    Hi Youngmum, doggie is adorable, isn't he? And thanks sweetie!

    Boso, LOL, I had that reaction too, until I read Liv's explanation, then I felt silly! She has a lot of common sense, our Livvy!

    Liv, LOL, no what was I saying about common sense..? :)

    Flighty, Doggy makes me smile. I found him on - it's a photoblog by a talented photographer. Doggy's pic was taken abroad, on a very hot day when everyone was feeling lethargic!

    Sppadic, I was amused because Chinese people are reowned for being short-arses, so it was a surprise when they said the world's tallest is Chinese!
    I'm okay, thanks, hope you are too! x

    But those poor people with Gigantism have terrible deformities that get worse with age, and osteoporosis.

Something to say?
