    Ha ha! I thought this would be interesting if anyone is willing to share.

    I'm 5 foot 5, brown hair with blonde and light red highlights that goes just down past my shoulders and straight and thick (well, not naturally straight anyways...I use a stright iron), brown/hazelish eyes, ears pierced once, wear about size 7, sometimes 6 if I'm lucky (about 128 pounds). I also have a small scar on the right side of my chin from a dog bite when I was younger (75 stitches...ouch) but I grew into it and now it's small and can't see it much. I don't take care of my nails, they are brittle, but I don't bite them. I also wear a size 8 shoe.

    Anyone else willing to share? COME ON! That way we can spot each other easily when we all take our road trip, remember?!

    OK I'll go...
    I have really dark brown hair but I put blondish highlights in it. Its really long (for me anyway) it touches the bottom of my bra strap. I have brown eyes and light light freckles on my nose. I am 5'3 and weigh more than I should :( about 140 lbs and I wear an 8.

    I've got dirty blonde hair that's just below my shoulders. I actually just got it cut about two weeks ago and the layers are a lot shorter than I wanted (shortest layer is just above my chin). I've got brown eyes and wear my glasses a good majority of the time although I'm hoping to get contacts as soon as a get a permanent position and health insurance. I'm about 5'5" and around 135-140lbs. Don't feel bad, Jen, I don't take care of my nails either. They grow pretty well, which is good, but I just don't seem to have the time or patience to keep them painted nicely.

    Oh, I have glasses too, but I always wear my contacts when I go out somewhere. Since I'm at home, I wear my glasses then, but hate wearing them outside the house.

    Okay. Here's mine. I am 5'7 and *** pounds (Come on, did you really think I'd say? I'm kind-of big). My hair is about 5 inches past my shoulders and was naturally a medium brown. I dye it a redish brown and can't get it back my natural color (I've tried, so now I've just given up and will continue to dye it whatever redish color I feel like at the time). I have blue eyes with little specks of white, that sometimes turn a greyish color.
    Um...what else...oh! I wear a size 10 (yes I know) shoe. I have several scars on my hands and arms from being accident prone. Have some on my legs too, that's why I never wear anything shorter than tea cup length.

    Oh, my ears are pierced twice (2 sets), and then have a single piercing on my top left lobe. I always forget to put earring in though.

    My turn...
    I am 5'5 and I weigh 130ish....haha I am trying to lose some weight. I am anywhere from a size 6-8. I have dark blonde hair and blue eyes. My hair used to be really short but I am growing it out it is passed my chin now but still above my shoulders. I have very fair skin but I get very tan in the summer because the Italian in me:) My nails are short because they get ruined at school from the paint, glue and the cleaning. I do try to get a manicure every few weeks.
    I would post a picture but I have no idea how to do that!

    I am 5 foot nothing. As for weight, I weigh more than a breadbox! :D I am working on the weight but it's not easy. I have thick dark brown hair that gets red in the sun. I used to wear it really short but grew it out to donate for Locks for Love. I am letting it grow back out (for me this time) and it's just below my shoulders. I have blueish gray eyes and freckles. (The bane of my existence!) I swear half of my weight is in my chest. The girls are always just there...in the way! I wear a size 9 shoe (picture clown feet!). I keep my nails trimmed and filed, but they aren't painted. I do paint my toenails, though. My ears are pierced twice each. My only regular jewelry (that I wear all the time) is a celtic spinner ring that I wear on my right thumb. I tend to wear sterling and have a few rings that I will sometimes wear. Earrings are my thing, though. The kookier the better!

    My turn...I'm about 5'5", although when I look at my children I swear I must be getting shorter! Weight has been a constant struggle, but I am (proudly) almost down to my goal weight and am hovering between a size 10 and 12 (want to be firmly in the 10). I have very short hair dyed a coppery red and I am debating getting some "funky" lighter highlights. I wear glasses and have since I was in Kindergarten. I wore contacts for several years, but after my daughter was born (12 years ago) decided it wasn't worth the hassle and stick to glasses. Hopefully, when you see me on the street I've got a smile on my face--I try to have one there most of the time!

    I'm 5'7" tall . . . same height I've been since 7th grade. I wore a size 12 in clothes from about that same time. However, a year-long illness and a near fatal allergic reaction in 2001 caused me to have to be on medication that made me gain 70 pounds in 3 months. I've gotten off half of that weight, and I'm happy to be back into a size 18. I love shoes, but I have a terrible time finding them in my size. I wear a 7 wide. Typically I have to get an 8 or 8 1/2 to get them wide enough. . . and then I've got all this extra toe space. :(

    My hair is dark brown and almost to my shoulders, which is longer than I've had it in about 10 years. My hair is fine and perfectly straight. Fortunately I have a good stylist! I have dark brown eyes, and I'm very nearsighted and have worn glasses since grade 8. I have contacts, but I don't mind glasses and often wear them. I never leave the house without full makeup. I love jewelry, especially necklaces. I have two ear piercings in my right ear and three in the left. I nearly always wear diamond studs in all five holes. I always wear a silver medical bracelet. I always have painted toenails, but I usually just have clear polish on my nails. My nails naturally look like a French manicure.

    Trust me, they're not all that! One of my friends always complained because she had NO chest. . . and then she had two kids and gained weight. Now she's complaining because none of her clothes fit WITH the chest. :rolleyes:

    If I ever get over my fear of plastic surgery. . . and have lots of money. . . I'm either going to get the girls put back up where they used to be or have them smaller . . . or both. :p

    Gosh, as I read JenPooh's I thought I was reading my own with a few exceptions!

    I'm 5'4 , 140 and have brown hair with gold and red highlights that I PAY dearly for. My hair is in an inverted bob, shoulder length. I have green eyes and wear contacts except when I'm at home. I have two piercings in each ear that I wear small diamond studs in all the time. My nails are manicured all the time (hoping for that next interview!). Toes painted all the time too! Size 8 1/2 shoe.

    I am about 5 foot 7 inches tall.
    (Do you think height has something to do with shoe size??)
