Amy Vansant b. 1968

Ms. Vansant was recently given a hair doll by a gypsy woman who whispered, "Thinner . . ." in her ear before shuffling off into the darkness. The experience was unsettling, but ultimately worth it, because now she has a hair doll. Ms. Vansant is happy to report years of yo-yo dieting and exercise seem to FINALLY be paying off. "Everything is coming up roses!"
