I'm very short! My 12-year-old brother is taller than me, and has been for a couple years. Haha. :)

Hello kschap
You are half and inch taller than me :-)
kschap ══╣╠══
Wow, yay! It's cool to find someone who's shorter than I am! ;)
sidheblessed ══╣╠══
I'm 5ft but only just. I'm 152cm tall which I think is something like 4ft and 11/12ths or something nutty like that.
sidheblessed ══╣╠══
Ok, I'm actually half a centimetre off 5ft, according to the converter you linked. It's so much easier to say 5ft rather than whatever my exact height is. ;)
armandii ══╣╠══
I always imagined you to be tall, I'm surprised(although you are still taller than me)
sidheblessed ══╣╠══
Really? I never imagined that people might assume I was tall. But then I have a friend on LJ who is shorter than me (I think she is 4'11"?) and i always see her as tall in my mind's eye.
belenen ══╣shock╠══
WOW. I totally pictured you as Amazonian in height, like 5'9" or something.
armandii ══╣╠══
I think I'm going to be the shortest person on your list at 4' 9"
:-)
When I was younger I was a statuesque 4' 10" but I've shrunk! haha.
belenen ══╣adorable╠══
omg! wow! I had no idea. I thought you were about my height, maybe an inch or two shorter. cute little pixie, you!

I suddenly feel freakishly tall next to everyone here.
belenen ══╣amused╠══
heh ;-)

*sigh* Well, I managed to put myself on the wrong place on the map--I should be in the very northeastern corner of Nebraska, not out west. But since I'm planning to move to Boulder, Colorado soon anyway, I might as well be shown as between the two!
And I think I'm 5'4.5". Height twins, maybe.

oh cool! ;-)

Yeah, I don't know why (or if I am one of the people you were suprised by), but people seem to think I'm short before they meet me or learn my height! I think it's because I have such a young looking face and sometimes look smallish in general, but... I'm not short! Not that being short is bad. Nor is being tall! My height used to bug me, I wanted to be shorter during my ED because I wanted to shrink (diminish myself...) but now I wouldn't trade it.
febrile_lune ══╣╠══
And for some reason, I was also suprised to learn your height. For some reason I pictured you to be around my height, haha.
belenen ══╣amused╠══
haha, cool!
belenen ══╣amused╠══
yes, I totally thought you were shorter than me, like 5'3" or something! that's so cool!
brightlotusmoon ══╣╠══
I'm four feet eleven inches. :)

I'd give anything to be an inch taller!
belenen ══╣amused╠══
why would you want to be taller? You're perfect! ;-)
brightlotusmoon ══╣╠══
Aww, thanks. :)
I think it's that I can't break free of the socially imposed mindset about height.
Also, pants rarely fit me, because most petite sizes are for women who are at least 5'2".
Then again, the flip side to that is that Gap Capri pants in the tall size are the perfect length for me, and they cost less... *grin*
chef_troy ══╣╠══
Wow, compared to you lovely pygmies I'm like Lurch over here.
belenen ══╣amused╠══
heh :D
flyingshaman ══╣╠══
I feel tall too.. wow.
belenen ══╣amused╠══
*giggles* you are! hehe
phydeau ══╣╠══
I have only met one woman my height, and even then, she was wearing heels. I'm a giant.
belenen ══╣amused╠══
you're an inch taller than my husband ;-)

About 5'5", but I couldn't figure out how to do the map :(
