Hi all (passes around coconut punch and macaroons) Nice to meet all of you.

Hey Kofee, I belly dance too. What style do you focus on? Cabaret or Tribal?

Hey there new sisters (and you few brave brothers):

I'm a thirty-something crafty, lactivist, homeschooling mama from the armpit of Columbus, Ohio.

When coherent( when I've gotten atleast 3 hours of sleep), I read, knit, crochet, spin yarn, sew, dream, bake vegan goodies, seek out great films, and do a bit of bellydancing. I'm interested in all aspects of midwifery, herbal medicine and other lost arts of women. (and yeah, I live with way too many cats...sometimes there are stereotypes for a reason, I guess). rolleyes.gif

My current movie fetish: I love vietnamese director Tran Ahn Hung...Cyclo, Vertical Ray of the Sun, Scent of Green Papaya are some of his works.

I'm a friendly/approachable sort of grrl, so feel free and encouraged to hit me up with comments/questions about any shared interests, pursuits or (for Columbus-ites) our unfortunate mutual locale.

I also am peer counselor to new breastfeeding mamas. (Cause it's not just YOU, it really is kinda frustrating the first few weeks). I HATE to hear of mamas who really wanted to breastfeed, but gave up due to lack of information/support. So nursing moms, I always welcome you.

Looking forward to meeting you all!

Hey everyone. My name is Laura. I live in Ohio. I like bicycles, guitars, writing, cats, and making jewelry.

I've been reading Bust for a couple years now, and love it to bits.

I really can't think of anything else to say.

I'll think of something better to put here later.

Hi everyone! I didn't read the entire thread, but my name is Brianna. I've been reading Bust off and on for a couple of years now and just recently re-subscribed (something had to give while I was out of work and magazines were one of those somethings).

Anywho, I'm 27, work at the library, love to embroider and scrapbook and take pictures. I have a super fantastic new boyfriend who lives 9 hours away, but we're making it work. I love to read and learn about anything and everything.

First, I should probably start by apologizing incase my username might offend anyone. So, if I've offended you, I am truly sorry. biggrin.gif

So, I'm Melissa, I'm 24 and I'm from the grayest place on earth, Cleveland Ohio! I've actually have been reading Bust for years, and never realized there was a forum here. I'm really excited I stubbled on to this place. A little more about myself, I love music and movies and I'm a hugh art enthusiast! I love art in all different types of mediums. I also love to read, and to drink black coffee (preferably that combo at the same time). And one of my dreams for the future is to become a belly dancer.

Im really looking forward to getting to know the members here.

Thank YOU Auralpoison!
Um, where is the place to ask about how I can find a thread I was reading on my first day which seems to have gotten buried under the pyramids?
It was something like, "what do you call your vagina"... I was loving that thing.

And. You girls make me feel like I've finally come home. Thank you.

Hello, ladies,

Just typed "Lettter that you'll never send" and found this lounge, didn't even know what I was doing;) But you guys are uber cool.
Hope you all are having a wonderful life!

I'm just a lech trying to find out what women think. Someone, maybe the Goddess, left a copy of the Atlantic in my bathroom with a rap on new genre's in women's literature. Along with the standard classic Romance, there were now the revenge novels where she gets back at him for being dumped, the book about picking the right college, getting the right degree, and then going out to find the perfect......job. Or, after finding the perfect man, discovering what a thankless job it was raising his kids from his airhead first wife.

Then, someone left a copy of Cosmopolitan, (I'll read anything) that had a report from a 30 something, disparing of ever meeting Mr. Wright, who went to a fertility clinic and now has the perfect... baby.

Every few years, I get a subscription to Playboy to see what young men are being told. Looking them over, I see it has become quaint. So, I got a subscription to Hustler, and if you actually read, rather than just look, its more cutting edge, socially active, like Playboy usta be. But I dont needa look at pictures to get horney.

Then, I got more recent copies of Cosmopolitan and Glamour, and sense the change; there's still raps on how to find and keep your man, but there's also some now on how to get more out of whatever life, or sex life, you are already having. Then, in the feb 09 Cosmo, "The Surprising Way to Feel Happier", on pg 139, which is, pure Zen. A remarkable contrast to all the upscale merchandise ads. Well, we all havta start somewheres.

But then, I saw the link to Bust, so thot I'd see if there was a more leading edge. And I'd get a subscription, but I got an upcoming test case on medical marijuana in Arkansas coming up in Oct, when they mite throw my ass in jail. So, I dont make any long term plans.

But looking for new social models, have you all seen or looked up the Mosuo?

Look at the longer video. Whatever they are doing does not seem to fit into any of the genres of womens literature I know of.
