In which I talk about several things randomly

This is our downstairs tree. (Yes, we have two trees, one colorful, one metallic.)

Tunic - B'leev, Leggings - Walmart, Socks - Sock Dreams, Boots - Simply Be.
I've entered that period of winter when all I want to wear are sweater tunics or other tunics. I don't know, it's a thing for me. This year, though, it leaves me with the distinct feeling that, along with my numerous doctor's visits to try and figure out my lady-parts issues, that people might be wondering if I'm knocked up. Not you people. You people get to hear snippets of my issues. Work-type people. And I don't care if you don't like the phrase "lady-parts", I prefer using it to running around yelling VAGINA all the time. And it's a good word for referring to my entire female-genitalia-below-the-waist. Technically, I guess I should run around yelling about my ovarian issues, but that just sounds really tiring since I don't like running.

Sweater - Simply Be, Leggings - Walmart, Shoes - Target.
 Since when did this become the Missy Cranky Pants blog of linguistic failings on the part of science? Since never. Point of the day: I've tried some nice (re: moderately expensive) leggings over the past few months, but big box store ones fit me the best (Walmart, Target). I don't know why, and I don't really care, since they're so cheap. The only issue is that the black ones fade slightly. And if I wasn't so lazy and took the time to do things like always wash them inside out, and dry them on the air cycle, instead of the super-hot-just-get-it-done cotton cycle, they would probably last even longer. I do take issue with people wearing leggings as actually pants with nothing else covering their bottoms. TACKY!

RAMBLE: Leggings, where are the best ones found?


  1. Thinking good thoughts for you in regards to your lady-parts issue. (OK, I know that sounds weird, but you know what I mean ... ;))
    I was eyeing some leggings at Wal-Mart the other day, but passed on them because I wasn't sure how long they lasted and how they fit. Good to know that you like yours - I'll have to pick up a pair sometime soon.
    I did buy a pair of leggings from Macy's for a rather steep price ... but I couldn't resist the zippers at the ankles.
    I hear ya on the leggings as pants issue! Seems that some folks don't own any pants, just leggings and too-short tops ...

    p.s. I have a giveaway going on for Haitian Beads! Please enter if you like 'em. :)

  2. I'm afraid I don't have any advice, but I want to stick around and see what other people have to say! I only have black leggings from Target (and one pair of striped leggings from my friend Leah's free pile), and I don't know where to look for opaque leggings in fun colors or patterns!
