in which I spend the morning finding out what I already knew

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vanity_sizing
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Size_zero
http://www.tradingstandards.gov.uk/towerhamlets/size.htm (looks like I'm a 1982 UK 12)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/US_standard_clothing_size#Women.27s_sizes (where I end up being 12.5?? none of that makes sense)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/US_standard_clothing_size#Conversion_from_catalog_sizes (which only applies to women in a very limited height range, so totally inapplicable to me)
http://www.tallwomen.org/ (a site about goddamn MONSTERS)
http://www.ringophone.com/tallornot.asp?tab=4&type=freebies&refid=TallorNot2 (Michael Crichton was 6'10"? What a goddamn monster...and I'm the same height as Jon Bon Jovi? Fuck off)
"To see vanity sizing in action, just take a look back at the sizing of yore. Marilyn Monroe, whose voluptuous body required a size 16 in the '50s, was actually more of a 6/8 by today's standards, Laur says. Generally speaking, clothing sized in the 1950s can be cut in half for an idea of today's mainstream sizing." (from here http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/entertainment/2004302760_zlivvanity25.html) and also "scanned 6,310 American women and found that the average waist size varied between 32.6 and 37.4 inches, depending on age and race." no offense, but does that seem....large?
http://www.healthchecksystems.com/heightweightchart.htm (dependent on frame size, which is integral....because I have a small frame, and am not as underweight as my height+weight make me sound...also....the site tells me I'm in my ideal weight range for my height and frame, because I have the average frame of someone 5'/155cm tall [edit: I don't know what the hell I was reading, but that page tells me I'm at least 13lb underweight....])
http://www.intense-workout.com/weight_loss.html Also, read this, because speeding up your metabolism IS possible (eating a lot of times in a day is one reason why my metabolism is so fast)

And this is what I've been doing this morning while Enzo sleeps. Must be nice not to care about working. lol who am I kidding, I don't fucking work :D
