Truth is stranger than fiction

One of the things that struck me as bizarre at DisneyLand this week was that a surprisingly large percentage of the women and girls there were wearing Mukluks around, in all shapes, sizes, and styles. Some were big poofy nylon things, others were leather with the fur around the tops. Some zipped up, some laced up. Some came up just over the ankles, others were knee-high.

But all were strange. This was L.A., after all. Mukluks. In L.A. What's up with that? That's like wearing earmuffs and a parka to a luau.

I was commenting on this to a co-worker today, and to my amazement, he said, "Yeah, my wife's up on the fashion scene, and that's all the rage now." Boggles the mind.

Then I joked that it's time to buy stock in legwarmers, and he said, "Actually...they're coming back."

Don't laugh, but Cayla has a pair. In fact she was wearing them today. I just can't wait for my Parachute Pants to come back in style....

yesterday i saw this girl wearing stripped knee-high socks with skulls on them, which i sort of had to comment on, but yeah... they were leg-warmers.

You know what this means, right? It's only a matter of time until Hollywood remakes FlashDance. I'm pretty sure that's one of the signs of the apocalypse.
