Torn Between Two Sizes

Saturday, September 1st, 2007

After ordering some clothes online, I’ve come to realize that most of my order is just a wee bit too big for me. I had tried one size smaller in the store, but it was just a wee bit too small for me. I blindly ordered them off the website so I could get my Ebates cashback, but it looks like that cashback (and the rest of the money I saved) might go towards altering the clothes.

I suppose I’m just an oddly-shaped person. The biggest problem I have is buying pants. My butt is on the smaller side, so it seems that every pair I buy (with the exception of Old Navy and Seven brands) have a butt area that either bubbles out or hangs down. Not attractive!

Seven Year Itch

Note to self – if you’re going to wear skirts to work in the summer:

  1. Do not walk over subway grates
  2. Hold your skirt down while walking down station steps
  3. Hold your skirt down while walking in between tall buildings
  4. Adjust your skirt before you sit down on the LIRR, or you’ll be sticking to the seat for the entire ride in

Kung-Fu Fighting

Tuesday, January 10th, 2006

All day I had this strong urge to kick some ass, crimefighter style. I wanted to fly up into the air, deliver this amazing karate kick, and land gracefully, all while cheesy Seventies music was playing in the background. I think it was the boots I was wearing. Must’ve been the boots.

The Formidable Five

Wednesday, May 4th, 2005

I consider myself a people watcher. I’ll sit in a park, on a subway train, in class or on the street, just observing everyone and everything they do. I’m usually good at understanding why people are the way they are and the reasons for their actions. Whether I agree with them or not, it’s always fun to nitpick on them. However, five people in our society absolutely baffle me. No matter how long I observe them or ponder what they do, I’ll never figure them out. (more…)

“Just Say No” – To Crack

Wednesday, April 13th, 2005

Ahhhh, springtime – the birds are singing, the squirrels are out in full force and daffodils and tulips are blooming everywhere. However, these balmy months at Fordham could be described more accurately in a mathematical formula: the longer the daylight, the shorter the skirts, and the higher the temperature, the lower the waistlines. This has lead to the rapid growth of something other than flowers. Butt cracks are sprouting everywhere. (more…)

The Heart Will Go On – But Not the 90s

Wednesday, February 9th, 2005

When a loved one dies, it’s natural to grieve and to with the person would come alive again to begin where you left off before the death. Even though, deep in our hearts, we know it’s best to let them settle in and get comfortable with their new afterlife.

However, there has been an influx of people digging up a certain fresh grave. The poor soul has only been dead for five years, but they keep shoveling up the dirt and disturbing his rest. It’s a horrifying story – really, it is. I’m sure you’ve heard about it. Oh, you say you haven’t? Just turn on your television. You’re bound to see him. His name is The Nineties. (more…)

Quadraboob & Droopy-Drawers

Friday, January 28th, 2005

It seems like we have age restrictions on everything these days – movies, music, games, toys, reading material, alcohol, cigarettes, dietary supplements, and even rental cars. However, there’s one thing that age forgot – clothing.

We desperately need age restrictions on clothing.

Just look around you; you’ll see what I mean. Parents dress their toddlers like teenagers, mothers borrow clothes from their 12-year-old daughters and non-developed preteens are wearing shirts with “Sexy” emblazoned across the chest. It’s just plain wrong.

It seems to be a more prevalent female problem than male problem. Nevertheless, it needs to be addressed and soon. (more…)
