Hey! I'm a 19 year old journalism student from Toronto, Canada, and I run a little thing called UNDER MY BED. Check it out and tell all your friends! Also send me submissions if you want your art/photos/writing/anything published! Thanks girls!
I didn't introduce myself yesterday.I'm Candice.I'm 27 and I live in a boring town.I have 4 kids.Even though I have children I still haven't changed who I am.I love music and movies.I love reading Bust.Been reading it since high school.Umm..I work customer service and I'm going through a divorce.I spend way too much time on the internet.I hope to meet like minded people and I'm probably going to spend way too much on this site.
Thanks stargazer!
[font="Book Antiqua"][/font] Hey gals, I'm new here, just joined this morning as I sit with a coffee enjoying the fact that my toddler is at Grandma's for another 4 hours. I look forward to nerding out with all of you, making new friends, and whatever else. I'm 24, live in rural(ish) New Jersey with my husband, kid, chickens, dogs, cats, and hopefully soon other farm animals. I am excited for spring.
i've been a loyal reader of bust for like 10 years and i've had bustmail forever and never occurred to me until today to check out the forum.

this is the first non topic-specific community forum i've ever joined and i have to say it's been fabulous reading everyone's posts about every little thing.

i've already found kindred spirits, learned about weight-lifting, geeked out over rainboots and discover any number of other useful bits of information.

thanks to all who regularly participate here and thanks to the women at bust for holding it down all these years and providing us with multiple access points for expressing ourselves, connecting with others and participating in the collective feminist/grrly knowledge pool.

hey y'all.
hi, just noticed there even was a chatboard, which seems stupid. of course there's a chatboard! i've read bust on and off for about 8 years? i think? i'm in central california, but i'm really a san diego girl, trying to find my way back.
i hope to have a lot of fun here tho!
Hi everyone. I guess you could say I've been a lurker (kind of hate that term) at the Bust boards for almost 10 years. I had a couple user names throughout that period but no recollection at this point of what they were. I did post every so often, but mostly just enjoyed reading. I'm re-registering now after not logging in for a couple years because I feel a really strong pull to actually put myself out there a bit and perhaps even become a part of this community. I want to be a real Bustie damnit.

Anyway, I'm recently 28, my Saturn return is fast approaching, and I am completely and utterly freaked out by life at the moment. The term "sucker punch to the gut" enters my head periodically, even though that's not even the kind of thing I'd usually say (I probably read it somewhere)'s just how I feel about the general experience of living right now. Everything's a bit jarring and hard. But I have a (tiny) bit of hope that I'll grow up into a functional person one of these days. Yeah, that would be good. I'm supposed to be going into grad school for library science this fall but haven't even applied anywhere yet. And I'm living with my parents (yay). And my one and only real boyfriend of 11 years just broke up with me (double yay). But on the upside, I just got a super cute new (to me) car, so actual yay.

There's my intoduction. I didn't dare post anywhere else without this little bit of necessary business wink.gif

Now off to Moooooving On!
hi! i'm new on the bust forums! i'm a 23 year old female who just moved to san francisco with my boyfriend from new york where we both went to culinary school! i really like it out here so far, but have been bored out of my mind and hoping to make some friends! anyone else from san francisco?!

Hi it's me vixen. I was getting tired of my user name sounding like a brand of silky sheer pantyhose.
I think I'm doing this correctly. I'm 24, I live in Pittsburgh. Huge sports fan and glad the Penguins have gotten their act together. biggrin.gif I may or may not be addicted to nail polish and Diet Pepsi. tongue.gif If you're from Pittsburgh give me a hello sometime cool.gif If youre not, free free also!!!

im from Monterey.
ummm, i love vintage couture...and

ok, hope that works better.
Welcome everyone! *passes around appletinis and bonbons*

Nitro - Here is the thread where you can promote your business otherwise, we don't do that here. That being said, all things vintage couture totally rock.
Ok - I might just not be seeing it but where is the DUDE thread? I thought it was in OBOH. Do any forums have more than one page or did the thread just go bye-bye? Same thing goes for The Teacher thread. Help me for today I seem to be blind.

Hello to all the newcomers! Cheers.
Um, what do you mean by a DUDE thread? There is no specific DUDE thread. What is DUDE? If you give me more info I can lead you.

I am really confused as to what I am being asked.

As far as teacher threads go Academia Nuts

Um, it's been a long time since I've been stoned & I completely missed the DUDE ref. Tonight I get high for the first time in forever & as soon as I re-read it, I got it. D'oh!
A post so nice, I posted it twice!

Hey all,

So my name's clay I'm a new member as of about a week ago lol. Anyways, I'm a male feminist. My sister reads this mag and i picked it up and read it one day. I thought it was fucking amazing! I realized most of the people that i really care about in my life are women (sisters, mom, aunts, cousins).
Thus I feel i am really interested in womens' rights, sometimes more than they are i think lol. My younger sister has had a pattern of really abusive relationships for the past few years and i really hope this forum will help me to get through to her. Shes such a smart/funny/amazing/beautiful person.

Hey! You should check out the Midwestern Mamas thread in the Friends and Family board. I don't know if you're close to Chicago, but we get together pretty regularly. There's Busties from other places in the midwest, too, though.
i'm new around here and want to say, "hey!' a little about me: i'm trapped in a tiny, midwest college town for another year and am in desperate need of an outlet for outspoken ladies. i am learning how to knit and am really into children's theatre, veggie hot dogs, pilates and long island iced teas. good to meet you all.
Hi everyone. I'm new and don't really know what I am doing just yet. Well I have had a very long week! My boyfriend and I are going on our first vacation, and I have been non-stop looking for a bikini top to fit me. Well I'm only 25, I am a size 0 to 1 in jeans and my bust is up to a 32G and growing! I have looked at many different sites and found nothing that I liked or that would give me the support I need. For my bra, I go to The Bra Specialist and buy the Fantasy strapless bra, but always wear the straps! Could someone please help! I need to find a bikini that fits the same way. Is it out there?!? sad.gif
Shelly, you may want to try this thread here. It's the large breast support thread, lots of great info in there, and the ladies are very wise.
Thank you so much Culturehandy.

Hey everyone, another newbie joins the Bust community!!

Im currently living in Melbourne but hopefully moving to the UK this year, I only recently discovered Bust magazine, but unfortunately have to travel a fair way to get my hands on a copy, its only stocked in one chain of bookstores and is constantly sold out!! its unbelievably refreshing to read a mag made up of real substance!!

love it xx
Hello ladies!!!

I'm B from Iowa -- 100 % lesbian, just graduated from University of Iowa with a B.A. in English and Film Studies. Totally unemployed and tis biting me on the ass since I had a student job at the university library. Love singing, been doing it my whole life; my family keeps telling me to try out for AI (yeah right). I'm a writer but don't have many things published.

Not sure what else to share so that's it for now!
Hey! My name is Mellie, well, Melissa but people call me Mellie. I live in Chicago. My husband and I own a vegan centered catering and personal chef company.

I hope to visit here more often smile.gif
Hi newbies!

Hey Mellie, there's quite a few of us here in Chicago and we get together pretty regularly. Check out the Midwestern Mamas thread- we're getting together on June 13th. If you're interested, PM someone for the details- we post them privately (usually through Facebook)!

Hmm, what to serve to y'all on a rainy Chicago day? I know! Snickerdoodles! And a glass of cold milk! (Soy milk for mellie!)
Hi, I'm Geoff. That's not my real name, but it'll do.

I'm a guy. There don't seem to be many of them on here, but I looked and couldn't find any rules against it.

I'm 34, straight, and live in the midwest.

I've only browsed a couple threads so far, but they seemed interesting. I enjoy listening to women's perspectives, especially on topics that guys don't often talk about. I'm joining to offer a firsthand male perspective in one of the threads -- hope it helps.
Hey everyone!!

Anway, just wanted to say hi and hope to get to know some of you!

Stop my my blog and say hi!
