Cause I feel old...  
I often feel old when I get sunk into... enveloped... completely and utterly and obsessivley consumed by cartoons... admitedly, FMA is the first to have sunk it's claws in deeper than any other has before, including my first-love ReBoot!

So... I know I'm not alone. But I AM curious, so let's have an age call. And since height is such an issue with FMA, let's hear from all the fellow shorties! How tall are you?


1/4" under 5' last I was measured

Come on, I know there has to be some old fogies out there... I know the majority will probobly be in their teens though. :)

Sat, July 1st EDIT: so far I've counted and this what we have as of now (I'll change the numbers as they come in):
45 of us are between the ages of 12 and 19 (the youngest to reply was 12... i mean 11 now)
45 of us fall between the ages of 20 and 68 (the oldest to "reply" was a girl saying her grandfather is into FMA).
32 of us are in the 20's. 6 in the 30's. 4 in the 40's. 2 in the 50's and 1 60yo.

wow. we do have a large range of ages and most of us are teens or 20somethings.

22 and inordinately proud to be 5'5. *used to be 5'2 but grew three inches after her back surgery*

so . . . I'm 25 . . . and 5' 2 3/4". What makes me old, however, is not my age, but being married with two children.

I was 5'3", for awhile: in college I needed steriods for my asthma for a few weeks, and during that time, I grew 1/4 of an inch! Hooray for being 5'3". Alas, that was temporary, because whatever my second child did to my body during pregnancy seems to have taken that 1/4" back and now I'm at 5' 2 3/4". maybe it was the toll at the gate for a new life, my little quarter-inch?! ::is beaten with fishes::

no way, jose! 29 is nowhere *near* crone status! :-P

(she says as she counts down - less than 5 months until 30!)

2 months til I'm 20. Last time I was measured I was 5'4", and I don't think I've grown any (although my parents think I have....not that I'd complain)

Good grief -- how did I wander into this party? I'm 38 and 6' (which makes me feel like old king Saul).

Thank god! I've been lurking forever because I've been shy about being 37 here...glad to see I'm not the only grown-up-mommy-wife-fangirl.
