This is just wrong.

I don't consider myself to be a very "trendy" sort of person. I'm not all that concerned about what's IN, fashion-wise, but if that's your thing, great! Go for it--if you've got the money and the closet space to do a 180 every time the next new thing comes along, then good for you. But when I got the Spring Trends email from Saks and saw harem pants... people, I cannot let this one go. There might be one person in the universe who can pull this one off, although I think anybody who wears them should PULL THEM OFF. NOW. If you are that one person who has the kind of personality that harem pants don't look stupid on you, don't bother contacting me. I don't speak Klingon. Judge for yourselves:

I love the sweater, but the Lipstick Diaries doesn't mention who did it. As a knitter, I'm glad to see that hand-knits are hot again, but spare me the "I just took a dump in my pants" look. No sweater deserves this kind of treatment.*

While I might not be the most fashion-forward person, I am a foodie. Searching the web for Super Bowl gut-busters, I kept finding recipes for blondies. One of the most intriguing was this one, from What a Dish. I didn't add the glaze, but my-oh-my are these good, so good that I've been instructed I cannot make them again until Christmas. That's fine, since it will take that long to get them off my ass. Try them, but don't say I didn't warn you. The recipe makes a 9" by 13" inch pan. This is all that's left:

See you at the gym.


  1. I have six pairs of harem pants and look like dynamite every time I put them on.


  2. This is tfm! Can we not step away from clothing that appears close to a full diaper in design form?

  3. Those pants are unbelievable! And how comfortable can they be? Have you ever worn pants that have a low crotch -- and tried to pull them up all day? If I see anyone wearing them, I promise that I'll point at them and laugh!!!


A few people seem to be having problems leaving comments. I have no clue why--Blogger doesn't make it easy to figure these things out. If you are having issues, you can always email me. Thanks for commenting, or trying to...
