Here Is What I Look Like

Work is going positively crazy. I have been working 12-13 hour days. I won't get a day off until Friday and my last day off was last Sunday. 13 days in a row. I am woman. Hear me cry...

So the kid loved the bike. It is blue/purple and white. It is a cross between a BMX and mountain bike. The tires are very textured, so riding through dirt and gravel will be easy. Problem is, we have no dirt or gravel. The street will do just fine though.

I was sitting here wondering if any of you even know what I look like. As many of you know, I refuse to put pictures of myself or my kid up on this blog for privacy reasons. Where I work is the main reason why. Also, I don't want any loonies coming around.

So here is what I look like. I am 5'11". Pretty tall. I weigh more than I should. I'm a big girl. Got some meat on those bones. I have brown hair that goes down to about my shoulder blades. Actually, my hair is very dark underneath and lighter on the outside part. Does that make sense? I have brown/hazel eyes (my best feature). My face is flatter than most because of my Asian background. I have a pretty good smile. I am always laughing and making jokes. I have big boobs. Uh, yeah, I don't care for them all that much. So before you go and say how lucky I am, try considering lugging the extra fat around. Let's see. I have a wide nose (another Asian thing). My hands are fat and I bite my nails. I don't wear any jewelry at all except for my watch, and that is only on occasion.

I pretty much break the Asian/American mold because of my size. When people see me next to my mom, they do a double take. My mom is 5'2" and 110 pounds soaking wet. She is very small. We have the same nose, but her eyes are almost black. My kid has her eyes.

Okay, so there was the breakdown. Not that you would be able to recognize me if you saw me anyway. I am trying to lose some weight though. It's hard sometimes.

Talk at you all later!

I agree with u. Not posting ur photos is a very sensible thing especially whn there is a child involved.
U are 5'11''? I am totally green with envy right now. I am only 5'1'' n how I wished many times I could hv grown taller, just even a inch. Well I could only dream.

Well, I am still very excited about getting to meet you in person. I have some schedule information, but I really won't know much until we register on Sunday afternoon. I should be free Sunday evening for sure (at least until the group changes that and makes other plans) but there should be some days where I don't have to judge around lunch time or dinner.

Abbagirl, you sound beautiful. The older I get the more I realize that typical media beautiful is NOT beautiful to me, it is so what is on the inside, and there you shine! I, too, have a few pounds to lose and its no fun trying to go that way. One day we will be victorious!

I'm trying to lose weight, because I way more than I should too. I'm glad the kid likes his bike.

hey there,
so, what you're saying is we shouldn't start staking out the grocery stores in Kansas looking for really tall partly asian looking woman?
Oh Ok. If you say so. ;-)

Glad the kidster like his bike. Try to hang on for another few days.

I like having a picture of you in my mind. Very tall Asian/American woman with big boobs and a big laugh. I guess you'd say my life is an open book 'cause my picture is all over the place. So far no paparazzi beating down my door!

You are one hard-working woman. I hope you at least have time to take a breath during the day. I know you thrive on your work, still...

I wasn't expecting the height, partly because a good friend of mine is Asian American and her entire family are pixies. Though I am glad to hear a description, it won't make me feel so ackward when we do get to meet, as I am 5'9 and fluffy. :D

Wow to the height. I'm the standard asian average height pls,five feet three and half and pls dont forget that half inch! Ah weight is another matter all together. In the Indian context,Indian clothes one can get away with a lot. :)
