Salt water taffy?

I'm a little ticked off at the moment, and it all started with an e-mail I received this morning. I don't know, maybe I'm making a mountain out of a molehill, but the cheek of some people!

I pride myself on being, on average, a good and loyal friend...but I know that friendships change and that it's unrealistic to expect to be best friends with everyone forever and ever -- although I'm thankful that some of my friendships at least have become (semi)permanent fixtures in my life, 'cause where would any of us be without our friends?

All of my friends and acquaintances know I hate spam and unsolicited mail. I rant about it often enough. They also know that they shouldn't misuse our friendship to try to sell me something.

So what could have made Kim think it would be alright to add my name to the distribution list for her brand new webstore selling the sort of trinkets she knows I have no use for? With an accompanying note extolling the desirability of the merchandise she's selling -- what would I want with a plus-size 'Oldest Duranie alive' T-shirt?

First she can't be shagged to answer my e-mails for months, then she sends me this? Though it is a nice site...maybe I'll congratulate her with it one of these days when I'm feeling slightly less offended...

Oh, and another thing: how come Nigella Lawson's bust doesn't look anything like as enormous as mine, and she's a 32G??

*pretends to be Trinny* *rudely pushes your bosoms up to your ears* *get another bra?*

I have no idea...a 36/38 A/B, these things baffle me. I think the size of one's ribcage - small, in Nigella's case- makes your bosoms look smaller? Big ribcage makes tiny breast look prominent (me?)

My word! Wasn't she on good form yesterday? Grabbing that poor woman's tits every two seconds, and the silly moo just stood there and let it happen! Why does no one ever tell her 'Oi you! Leave my tits alone'?

She can't be a G - that's enormous. I've sure i would've noticed if they were that big.

I have an ex-colleague who's idea of emailing me is to put me on his joke list, which I wouldn't mind so much if he actually ever bothered to say something to me.

I'm telling you, she is! Well, at least according to the lady herself in this interview I read in the Times Sunday Supplement when I was in Britain last. I nearly fell off my seat! Yep, she's a G, with a (get this) size 10 waist. Life is so bloody unfair.

Lets hope she'll topple over in a strong wind then!

Your friend probably had the duel purposes of maybe drumming up some business, but also letting you know she's running a business. I'd probably give her the benefit of the doubt, and say "hey, cool site, good luck" or something.

But if she was guilting you into buying stuff - very bad form!

Now that I've had time to think about it, I'm sure she didn't mean to upset me, and would be horrified if she knew she had (did I give her my URL? cannot remember!).

It's just that I hadn't heard from her in ages, and then this e-mail comes in out of the blue, and just in time for X-mas shopping! Do you think she can fault me for thinking her motives a little bit dubious?

But it is a great site and I'll certainly tell her so!

She's a G? That's just silly. She must keep toppling over onto her face. Perhaps that curvaceous and perfectly formed bum of hers is actually a lead weight.

Have to agree about the bra thing. My chest can look like anything from two small bumps around my waist to two large and lethal boulders with a cleavage you could drown in a good deal further north depending on the amount of M&S scaffolding I'm wearing. You can get these minimiser bra things for 'big girls'... but WTF for? If you've got it girl, flaunt it!

Do you know, that minimiser bra thing was the WORST BUY I ever had? I wear that thing, and yes I can close a fitted blouse over my bosoms, but I look as if a chunk's been taken out of my breast.

I always wear fitted M&S scaffolding...I have to, with my 36D; or else they'd sway every which way with every step. But I guess it must be the broad shoulders and larger ribcage that make mine more noticeable than hers, even if her boobs are 3 cupsizes bigger.

If you've got it girl, flaunt it!

Thing is, I've never learnt how. I'm mostly just embarrassed by them.
