Shiver me timbers

I am not a fashiony girl. I like nice, fun, stylish clothes but I refuse to wear them unless they are comfortable and cheapish. Today I went to the mall to look for a sweater or nice looking jacket to wear over my new clothes for my cousins's wedding next weekend. First of all, I didn't find anything that met my two requirements so came away empty handed; however, I did get a good dose of American culture. What is with "fashion" these days? The clothes are good, it's who chooses to wear them that baffles me. I don't understand the giant sunglasses fad to start with -- really don't understand feeling the need to wear them inside. Also, I saw at least 10 girls that were, well, more than slightly overweight, wearing cropped shirts with a solid roll of fat hanging out underneath. Now I'm glad they are comfortable with their bodies, but do we all have to see it? It's 10 degrees outside, is the fat roll immune to the elements? I don't get it. Hmmm...

On another note, we are home for the weekend instead of in Moab. I-70 looked nasty and Chris made the decision to not risk the roads. The decision lead to a VERY interesting couple of hours in our house but as we did a nice ABS slide down the hill to get some dinner, I think he realized he made a good decision. He's out riding now in wind that takes your breath away. I hope the skinny guy doesn't blow away.

Knitting time! Woohoo!

Just remember, those would be your students if you taught middle or high school. Even in treatment, with no one (theoretically) to impress I have a few girls whose outfits need vetting most mornings. Even I couldn't pull off one of those shirts.

When you were out shopping did you get me a new pair of tapered black pants and white socks for my birthday? I'm in need of a new pair. Maybe instead of regular white socks you can get me white wool socks for the crazy cold weather we are having! However, it's nothing compared to what you guys are experiencing out there.

We are looking forward to seeing you guys this weekend for the big wedding. Should be fun.

I'm going to start wearing pink belly shirts to work. Maybe then I can get unemployment? Haha.
