Thsnks, Scribey and SisMei!

@Sis: I'm definitely going to check Petite Fashionista out - wonder how they are with advice for short girls in size 14/16?

@Scribe: True, Doogie was cute... but I think I have a bigger crush on the older NPH - and I don't care that he's into boys IRL, especially since he still plays a hilariously convincing poonhound on TV.
