Hi edithdumplings! Check out the UK Bustie thread in the Friends & Family section, I think we're going to have a bit of a meet-up at the craftacular.

And welcome from a fellow newbie!

Welcopme Newbies!

*throws sprinkles*

A few things for new posters. Please please please do not start new threads with out consensus from the community forum, which can be found here. We are a mainly self moderated forum and new threads just take up space. Further, what you are looking for may have already been created and just slid out of view. Someone can bump it for you. Or, explore on your own and see if you can find it.

Plus, we don't like new threads, some are a little useless and silly...SO, Happy posting and ask away!

Hi! My name's Gemma, I'm 23 from London.

I'm yet to buy my first copy of Bust! I used to live in Australia and became a big fan of Frankie magazine, but it's difficult to come across in the UK. I tried to find a magazine in the UK that is somewhat similar to Frankie, and I found myself at the Bust website after seeing an advert for the London Christmas Craftacular. I have rather enjoyed the website so far, and I will be popping out tomorrow to buy a copy!

I'm an illustrator and a bit of a crafter, fairly new to London and wanting to get involved a bit more.
See you at the Craftacular. smile.gif

Hey Nova! I see you're in NW Indiana- you should swing by the Midwestern Mamas thread in the Friends & Family section. Most of us are from Chicago and get together pretty regularly. I don't know what your transportation capabilities are like, but maybe you can join us sometime!


Thank you for the invite:)

i'm lorraine, new to these boards but not new to the mag. been reading it off and on for about 5 years. i'm an old lady, relatively speaking- i'm 45, married, the mother of two boys, ages 14 and 2 (second marriage-second kid syndrome...). i'm a veteran of several other message boards, primarily two dedicated to pearl jam- they are very political and so have forums on their boards that are devoted to political talk. however, since this divisive election season began (and really before that), the climate there has been almost intolerable as there is a handful of ultra-right wingnuts who tend to hijack the board and generally shit on anyone who disagrees with them. i haven't bothered with them since obama kicked republican ass on nov 4th. i figured, what more can i say? we elected a center-left, feminist, half-black democrat for president- my work here is thru. the rest is up to him. and i'm pretty confident that he's up to the job.

soooooo, here i am, desiring some girl company. hello everyone!

peace,
lorraine

I started reading Bust a few months ago after spotting the issue with the Gossip's Beth Ditto on the cover. I thought 'Hell, if there's a magazine cool enough to use Beth Ditto as a covergirl, they're cool enough for me.' Next thing I knew, I was in love with Bust. As soon as I realized there was message board [today, about an hour ago] I HAD to join.

My name is Carly [or call me Carrpet, either one is fine], I'm in my late teens, and I'm from the Chicago suburbs.

I really look forward to getting to know everyone!

Well, hello hello everyone! Another newbie... I discovered Bust mag while tripping along the internet highway tonight (or should I say this morning? Ooooh... Just looked at the clock - I need to get to bed!) and have been reading ever since, enjoying it immensely. This mag is fab! Newly divorced after a 28 yr. marriage, and other than that, I am in dire need of a JOB right now. Can't wait to chat more and become better acquainted with everyone, but like I said... I need to get some zzzz's!!! ~~Sherry, AKA Dragonflybee, AKA The Cosmic Woman (but any one of those will do) wink.gif

Hi, my name is Wendy. I used to post on these threads several years ago and then I didn't have a computer for a while, so I stopped posting. I just moved to Tucson, Arizona after living in Olympia, Washington for several years. I sling coffee and bagels until I go back to school in the spring.

Welcome newbies, we have a troll currently going by the name Joansy, his real name is Steve and he likes to quote bible passages and such. You can block him by going to my controls then manage your ignore list and add him. Don't bother engaging, because he's insane.

Also, if there is something that you are looking for but can't find it, just pop over to the community forum and ask, we can bump a thread if it has disappeared.

Welcome and happy posting!!!

Hi newbies!

Lemon chess pie:



* 1 (9 inch) pie shell
* 2 cups white sugar
* 1/2 cup butter, softened
* 5 eggs, beaten
* 1 cup milk
* 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
* 1 tablespoon cornmeal
* 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
* 3 tablespoons lemon zest


I like to prebake my crust for 10 minutes at 425 before letting it cool and filling it.

DIRECTIONS

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together sugar and butter or margarine until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and milk. Add flour, cornmeal, lemon juice, and lemon rind. Mix until smooth. Pour mixture into pastry shell.

3. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes, until set in center.









Lemony deliciousness for all!!


yum!

Hi. I am new.

I just graduated with a BA in Women's Studies. Woo! Who knows what that means or what it will get me... but yay for feminism anyhow!

I've been wanting to join this lounge for a long time, I just haven't had the time until now. I look forward to great discussion.

Cheers!
