maybe it’s me, but…

… I’m beginning to think that the hip jut is the new hair flick.

I also feel like channeling Crocodile Dundee in a ‘That’s not a hip. THIS is a HIP.’ kind of a way.

FYI, this has absolutely nothing to do with jealousy whatsoever.

Absolutely. Nothing.

    geez….. I am going to say this…. and it has nothing to do with jealousy. Those girls have had their tummys photographically liposucked. Nope not jealous at all… in the slightest, no sir not me. I just remembered why I just read m/m now, can't handle the skinny chicks. 😦

  2. Natasha says:

    I was skinny once…. when I was 5!

  3. K. Z. Snow says:

    You're not alone, Natasha. If I “jutted” my hips, I'd relocate the Great Lakes. (Hell, it's hard enough just walking without bringing down a house or two.)

  4. Tam says:

    Well I'm jealous, those freaky skinny bitches need to eat a sandwich. I try to keep my hip jutting to a minimum so as not to scare the neighborhood children.

    But I'd rather see a skinny hip than perky naked boobs (discretely covered by an arm). Perky and me ain't friends. In any sense of the term.

  5. Kris says:

    Tish, I was skinny in my late teens and early 20s. That was in a galaxy far, far away too.

    I guess having skinny chicks and dudes is part and parcel of the fantasy of romance. Having said that, I've read some great BBW romance and erotica since I discovered ebooks.

    KZ: “Hell, it's hard enough just walking without bringing down a house or two.”

    Is that why I have bruises all the time. 😉

    PS – When the frack is your new book being released? I thought it was coming out today.

    Tam: I keep telling myself that the 'arms over boobs' and the 'arms covering boobs with hands on shoulders' are really ways for those chicks to hold up their boobs to make 'em look pert.

    I'm probably 1% convinced by this argument.

  6. Natasha says:

    I really shouldn't say I was skinny when I was 5….. I was 39 kgs until I was 28 and had my 1st baby. It's been downhill since then….. it just felt like it. Now I am going to cry… again 😦

  7. Natasha says:

    Oh did I forget to mention I am 2 ft 5 or is that 5 ft 2 LOL!

    I couldn't wear jeans like that even if I were thin (which I'm not). My stretch marks are like a road map of Britain and would be on display to all passers by if I had those jeans on.

    I could jut my hips but I may end up damaging a child in the process.

  9. Natasha says:

    Jenre…. I am dark brown in colour… I'd get confused with a zebra if I tried to wear those pants LOL

  10. Kris says:

    Damn. Is that why girls have kids? To excuse the weight gain and the stretch marks? Someone should have told me that much earlier. 😉

  11. I think it's cruel that “skinny jeans” are in fashion…seriously who looks good in skinny jeans except Kate Moss? BTW I have noticed the hip {pun intended} cover trend for the heroines, for the male covers it's all about tattoos these days. What does 2010 covers have in store for us?

  12. Kris says:

    Smokinhotbooks: I agree, and did you see one of the chicks on the covers was a cop? Seriously, how can a cop take down baddies in those jeans? As soon as she tackled someone they would be down her arse.

    You're so tight. Guys with tatts on the top or on the back of the shoulder as well as half sleeves are definitely in fashion now.

    What a great post topic 'What does 2010 covers have in store for us?' would be! Do you mind if I steal it? T'would be interesting to see what people come up with.

  13. K. Z. Snow says:

    I think we're overdue for a plethora of piercings.

    Of course, only a freakin' knitting needle, and a sharp one, would get through my…excesses.

    (Gotta go now. I feel faint.)

  14. orannia says:

    Hips are the new midrifs and breasts IMO. Remember all those covers with bare midrifs and cleavage?

    And yet again, the covers reflect the womenon magazine covers and not those in reality. My best friend showed me a photo of Christina Hendricks yesterday – WOW! Gorgeous with curves 🙂 What is so wrong with curves? <--- serious question!

  15. Kris says:

    KZ: Good point! Tatts well and truly took over piercings, didn't they. Now I think about it, I reckon the last piercing story I read was one of the Halloween freebies on the Fiction with Friction site. Before that?? It's been ages.

    Orannia: The midriff and plunging beckline was a personal skank fave of mine. Blech.

    I have absolutely no idea what's wrong with curves. Kate Winslet is another person who, like Christina Hendricks, looks fabulous. I have an hourglass figure myself (altho it's a bit, err, padded at the moment) so I'm definitely a fan of the boobs, waist and hips. 🙂

  16. Jenre says:

    Natasha: LOL!

    I used to have an hourglass figure too. Until the kids came along – yes, Kris, they are the cause of all my woes. Well, them and chocolate…and cake…and hub's yummy cooking.


  17. jitterbug says:

    The postures of the girls on those covers! *shakes head* I always ask myself if they have scoliosis or something. 😛

  18. Kris says:

    Jen: *snort*

    Sara: Yes, they do appear to be malformed. LOL.
