May 29th 2008 5:29PM There aren't many options for younger plus girls. Torrid is the plus size sister store of Hot Topic, but about 6 months ago they stopped selling the cute edgy clothes, and started selling more "glamorous," "elegant" styles that you can get at all these other stores everyone else has mentioned. So I stopped shopping there.Fortunately for me I can find my size in regular stores, but others aren't so fortunate. I mean, yes it's a good idea to present yourself like a professional ... in professional situations. Just because we are plus size doesn't mean you have to make all our clothes generic and boring, designers! Isn't it your job to be creative? Why do I only see the same silhouettes in every plus store with an even more ugly, unwearable print, when regular stores are getting all these cute designs that I know are translateable to plus. Is it really the end of the world if you make the same shirt a few inches wider?
Jan 10th 2007 11:12AM When I was about 6 my dad let me try a sip of beer. It was so nasty I didn't want to try it until I was exposed to German culture where everyone loves it so much. I wanted to see if I liked it this time, so I put some in a Dixie Cup, and ended up mixing it with Pepsi half way, because it was still nasty. Although I don't dislike beer, and wine in food.
But then Europeans drink a lot more than they do here. Maybe if my dad actually was an alcoholic, and drank beer every night, I might have had a different oppinion by now.
If I travel, I will give the countries' beers a shot, but I would probably still consider it all nasty. I'd much rather have something fruity, and refreshing than something that burns out my nose hairs out.
Aug 27th 2006 1:36PM People are so lazy they can't get in their cars, and go to a drive-through Starbucks. If they have them in my hick-town (not even shown on the map), I know they have them in yours! GET OFF YOUR BUTTS, AMERICA.
Furthermore, I don't think this device would function well in California or other hilly areas. I mean, gravity would cause the stream of boiling coffee to spill all over when you're practically verticle on regular roads in the valley. The cup needs to be higher to solve that issue.
I know they expect people to have decency, and common sense when using this, but look how people mistreat the rules of the road as it is.
I liked the idea some one was hinting at above about making a law that you have to pull over to use your phone (unless in heavy traffic). So nothing like that's been in the rule book before, but when they were written, the cellphone hadn't been invented yet, and I believe it needs some updating.
Aug 1st 2006 6:50PM Teeny boppers will make their parents buy it for them so they'll look cute at the mall, then there'll be six thousand of those out in the parking lots. Despite all the braincells I lost from watching just a single episode when I was little, at least it will be easier to find my own car.
Jun 12th 2006 2:03PM Well, I don't know about Kyle not making guy friends because I certainly didn't become a lesbian when I made girl friends.
Just because you hang out with someone of the same sex doesn't mean it will inevitably lead to homosexuality unless that's truly what you want out of the relationship. Most guys would be disgusted by the idea of going gay for their buddies.
I think the idea the hotel had was an okay concept, but if it was called something so Neanderthal-like, like "Man'cation," it should have had more activities geared towards masculinity so men wouldn't be embarrassed to do it.
Trying to interest men in the things their girlfriends do is pretty stupid. Are they going to offer manicures there as well?
