It's almost Friday. I'll just do a general wrap up of things I noticed this week.

Salsa dancing is frickin' hard! I consider myself a pretty good dancer but after two glasses of wine even my feet couldn't move like that or that fast. Gave it up quick. Went back to just drinking wine.

If you have saddlebags, please refrain from wearing stretch pants. Really. They aren't "holding" it in. The cottage cheese was scary on those thighs. And, trust me, I was trying NOT to look.

Leif. What happened?? I guess being a teen idol just ain't what it used to be. I couldn't find a picture of what he looked like when he was actually arrested, which was shown on the t.v. news, but trust me, this man has been "ridden hard and put up wet" as we say down south here.

Don't cha hate it that the fashion right now is for little girls to dress like 'ho's and their mom's to then try and dress just like their little girls?? What's up with that? If I had a girl, I would never let her go to The Limited Too. I'm sorry but that is like an elementary school for prostitutes. I must be raising Amish boys cuz the other day one of my son's told me that my shorts were too short and I pointed out they were my RUNNING shorts and it wasn't like I was going shopping in them. I probably shouldn't subject people driving a vehicle to my scary white legs, but I sure ain't gonna wear 'em and upset people's stomachs at the grocery store.

Oh yeah, enough about Brangelina Jolie-Pitt!! and their babies. Jennifer and I are sick to death of them.


  • AMEN to the knit pants and saddlebags!! I've been holding in the vomit all week from watching my ignorant boss jiggle around in those while telling me what to do!!

  • I am so fortunate that my daughter is a tomboy. She only recently (within the past few years) stopped shopping in the boys department. Now she wears girls-cut jeans and t-shirts (with boy's "Hoodies"), but nothing excessively tight or low. The only time we ever went in to Limited Too was to return stuff my sister bought her.

    And as for Leif...If you're gonna carry all those drugs, you'd think you'd be smart enough to buy a token for the subway, instead of trying to get on with out paying!

  • The Brangelina saga got old 15 minutes after it was born off the press. I am sick sick sick of hearing about them! My opinion of Brad has gone WAY down anyway. He obviously cheated on Jennifer. But no one focuses on that. It's all about how friggin cute Brad and Angela are together. Jennifer needs to step up with the "scorned woman" and kick some ass. Maybe THEN I'll care.

  • I agree, my opinion of Brad has gone way down, too.

    Also, I spend my life trying to hide my saddlebags and not inflicting them on other people, and now I hear that others just let them flap in the breeze? WTF??? They're called CURVY JEANS, people. Curvy. Jeans.

  • Here's a pic of Lief:

    When my 8 yr old saw his picture last night on ET, he was like who is that, and I explained that when I was young Lief was hot and popular and this is what drugs to do you. Nice teaching moment!

  • Ahhhh Jeese!!!!! The low rider pants designed for 6 year olds.....what the hell are these designers thinking! HELLO.... little girls don't have hips yet so the jeans just slip right on down. I teach elementary school (1st and 2nd grade) and I swear, our community circle time looks more like a plumbers convention!!! Little butt cracks for as far as the eyes can see. Poor little things! They don't have a is time for moms and dads to step up and quit buying the little 'ho' pants for their daughters. Sure, they may think their little angle looks adorable when she is trying them on at the Limited Too, but please remember... THEY ARE STANDING UP THEN!! Make them sit down 'criss-cross-applesauce' on the floor of the fitting room, have them learn forward as if listening to a story......if the crack shows, time to shelf that pair and hit the boys department!! Your grateful elementary staff will thank you.

  • Seriously, I worry about what will be fashionable when my daughter is a teenager. I see some little girls walking down the street and I want to run up to them and cover them up, LOL.

  • I completely agree about the current "little girls as prostitutes" fashion trends. Every time I see these scraps out fabric posing as outfits, I thank God I only have boys. Except that as they get older, I will have to talk to them about avoiding the girls who dress like that. Do you THINK they're gonna listen?! I can only hope and pray...

  • Elementary school for prostitutes... snicker.
    You are so right though.

  • Ditto on all thoughts!

  • That is just too funny -- the Limited Too comment.

    Ditto on the rest. I hope you were drinking wine from Spain, umm...I wonder if that would work?

  • I am with you on Brangelina - I don't know how Jen can stand it. Vince must have her on crack daily.

    Hey maybe they know Lief.

  • HA! I love your assessment of Limited Too. I'm so lucky my daughter is not yet old enough for those styles. I don't know what I will do when she grows into them. Hell, I'd rather leg warmers really come back in than that stuff!

  • The fact that the issue of People stating "Angelina reveals, "YES I'M PREGNANT" is staring at me with mockery...well, fuck her.

  • You go Brooke! Why the hell does she get to boink Brad, be rich and breed?

    Debbie- There is a reason to be glad you are not raising girls...those clothes, you are spot on....why would I be interested in an 8 year old's bellybutton? Or a 17 year old's for that matter?

  • Oh, Brooke, I'm sorry. Personally, I'm trying to stick to cheesy celebrity magazines featuring eating disorder stories these days--they're pretty plentiful.

  • But did you see his mug shot? The one on Smoking Gun is the best.

  • Ugh...I LOATHE Limited, Too. Unfortunately, it is the only store my niece will wear clothing from (I know. Don't get me started) so I had to go in there to get her a gift card at Christmas time. My daughter (age 5) was mesmerized. She was SO into it, which I found particularly disconcerting. I don't know what the secret is to making your kids not want to be like that but if anyone knows, please clue me in :-P

    And Leif Garrett...scarrrrry! He used to be so cute. What happened????
