What do you think?

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments 10. You haven't met my stepmom. She cracks me up more than anyone else on there. I think it's kind of fun watching the old people interact on there. Maybe it's because all the old people I know are cool. Gus is cool. Erin is cool (you don't know her. Gus does, though). And I could go on and on... :)

3. Ugg boots will never get tired. You know why? They're a helluva lot more comfortable than BCBG boots... and most other shoes. Trust me.

2. Dude. You haven't met Susie. That's all I'm sayin'.




message 3: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments Heh. You just said Gus was old.


message 4: by Matt (new)

Matt | 819 comments Re:6 - I would include those really tight, low rise jeans that the emo guys wear. That can't be good for a fellas sperm count...


message 5: by Heidi (last edited Dec 31, 2008 02:05PM) (new)

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments Heh. You caught that, eh? :) He's the youngest older person I know (well, besides Erin, Tracey, Susie, Desi, Sam, Joseph...). He's timeless, like a pair of cashmere gloves. Plus, I love to get him riled up cuz I'm an imp.

Tadpole just made me loff.




Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments I had enough of 80s fashion the first time it came around.


Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) OMG! I'm old? When did that happen?
I'm wishing the "plumber look" would finally just go away. I'm not thrilled to see some man's crack. If I wanted to do that, I'd go pull down my hubby's britches (LOL) or call a plumber. :)


message 8: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) I agree with #4. They just look goofy to me. I always want to say, "dude, did you know you had a thing stuck on your ear?"


shellyindallas Those are all good. I was going to add skinny jeans on guys, but Tadpole beat me to it. Other must gos are:

Crocs
Hannah Montana
Judd Apatow
Tee shirts w/ "ironic" or "funny" sayings
Hipsters
Perez Hilton
Competitive dance shows (we don't need 57 of them, anyway)
Leggings




message 10: by Kirk (new)

Kirk | 154 comments I'm glad other people are tired of Judd Apatow.

I would add

Conspicuous displays of bellybuttons
Jennifer Anniston STILL talking about Brad Pitt
Obama girl (never all that funny)
Celebrity Rehab
Any show in which women compete for Bret Michaels
Male hair gel and body spray
Greedy stockbrokers
Books about the life lessons dogs can teach us
Sarah Palin parodies, porn or otherwise




shellyindallas Good ones, Kirk!


message 12: by Heidi (new)

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments May I add to the list?

Boob jobs.


message 13: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments No. Boob jobs must continue.















(kidding, kidding. I'm not a boob person at all. I don't get the fascination.)


message 14: by Arminius (new)

Arminius 1. Crocs
2. Regis Philbin
3. Oprah
4. VH1
5. Cha! Cha! Cha! when singing birthday songs
6. Bush bashing
7. Obama praising
8. Corporate handouts
9. Golf on TV
10. Any product that begins with "I" and is made by Apple.


message 15: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) fakes are an abomination -- cast that fad to the wind, please


message 16: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments No, KD...here's the best way for me to explain the boob thing. I feel like I should like them more than I do. It's like, say you're indifferent to chocolate chip cookies and you go to a party and everyone is raving about the chocolate chip cookies. You might say, "um, sure, they're great" but the fascination isn't quite there. However, you might be more into the oatmeal cookies (legs or eyes, maybe) to which less attention is afforded. Does that make sense?


message 17: by Heidi (new)

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments I feel like I need to add that boobs are great. I have nothing against boobs. Silicone boobs... weird. So is fake tan.

In my opinion, of course... and I see lots of both around here in The South.


message 18: by Meen (new)

Meen (meendee) | 1733 comments I think it would be OK to keep the Sarah palin porn, Kirk.


message 19: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (songgirl7) Fake tan is a good one, Heidi.

My parents have Facebook profiles. And now, so do my 12- and 13-year-old nephews. I'm deleting my profile tomorrow.

How about the baggy, saggy, gangsta pants? I'm so sick of seeing guys with pants 3 sizes too big, sagged down to their knees, with their boxers showing. Sometimes they sag below the butt completely.


message 20: by RandomAnthony (last edited Dec 31, 2008 04:32PM) (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments Is that what Pamela was saying in post 7? I think so. Right?

I'm not into fake tans, either.


message 21: by Meen (new)

Meen (meendee) | 1733 comments No, I think plumber crack is a whole other issue from saggy asses.


message 22: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) I agree with Mindy about the Sarah Palin porn.


message 23: by Meen (new)

Meen (meendee) | 1733 comments I'm in favor of most all porn, really. (Adult porn.)


message 24: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Good save, Mindy.


message 25: by Sally, la reina (new)

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17346 comments Mod
What about barnyard porn? Is that acceptable?


message 26: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) OMG Sally!


message 27: by Meen (new)

Meen (meendee) | 1733 comments Here's the thing about animal porn. I'm not sure it's abuse if the animals are enjoying it.


message 28: by Sally, la reina (new)

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17346 comments Mod
Right? Sometimes they look downright orgasmic.

Here's where I lie. I've never seen barnyard porn.


message 29: by Félix (last edited Dec 31, 2008 05:22PM) (new)

Félix (habitseven) It was a very good lie. I've never seen any either -- and I hope I never do again.


message 30: by Meen (new)

Meen (meendee) | 1733 comments No comment.


message 31: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) A very smug 'no comment.'


message 32: by [deleted user] (new)

KD is such a boob man.


message 33: by Carol (new)

Carol | 1679 comments Bizarro world of old threads popping up. Bad news, leggings are back with a vengeance. Take that, 2009!
