    Monster???did somebody say monster?????

    When I was a teenager, a good head taller than most of the boys, a band of delightful young chaps used to follow me around school calling me monster. Needless to say, I developed a thick coat of nacre from the experience. Perhaps that's why I have such an affinity for monster pearls...

    Much as I love to have a big SSP for a pendant, however, the shape of this monster does not do much for me.

    What a bunch of Simple Tools. Did you go to school with a bunch of runty-boys? It must've been California. ;-)

    yeah, I'm mean, I'm bad,
    But bullies are just SAD.
    Some boys think they're witty
    mocking girls both tall AND pretty

    ...which you are.

    Eh. I shouldn't be mean...Puberty su*ks for both sexes at one point or another...I used to think "if I were taller my weight would be perfect for my height, and my bottom wouldn't look so big".

    (am I going to get into trouble for this? Well, admin can take it down.)

    Oh, you are such a goofball! Sheri had the last laugh by being the beautiful, creative, and incredibly intelligent woman she is today.
