some one buys those clothes and i'm thinking its mom. why would you spend good money on that stuff. goth look requires lots of cosmetics. not cheap. if the kid has a job he may buy it himself. however if he dresses like that, probably can't get a job. so moms need to lay down the law. don't enable this stuff.

LOL! Luckily, in the school setting, we can tell them to pull 'em up. We also keep a stash of zip ties if they don't have a belt, just run a tie through a couple of belt loops.

Saw a full pair of plaid boxers on a kid last year, his pants waistband was BELOW the boxers, around his thighs! The crotch of his pants was below his knees! How he kept them up, I'll never know.

He bought the stereo for my Mom so she could listen to Dean Martin. She had every one of his records...."Everybody, loves somebody.....sometimessssssss"
I still have an old 6' long stereo. I inherited it from my grandmother when she passed. I need to find the parts to replace some stuff on the circuit board and then it will work again. Little bro blew them when he jury-rigged a connection to the computer so he could listen to more than the fm radio and old records that I have.

Sorry to all you young folks out there, but I thought it just looked clownish. I actually laughed when I looked at him. I don't think it was the impression he was looking for. His girlfriend was made up with that heavy Gothic look. Black nails, black eyes, stringy bright red hair and 20 pounds of cheap jewelry above a mini-mini skirt with her undies sticking out.

I felt like the freakin circus had come to town!

(Now I sound just like my Dad)
Ugh, I remember when the pants below the wasteline trend started. I don't mind most looks so long as they aren't trashy or lazy looking. The pants falling down looks lazy to me, the skirts that show the underwear look trashy.

I can't really say too much about extreme makeup. I used to own (and wear) lime green, ice blue, dark moss green, deep red, silver, and violet lipstick. I had eye shadow and mascara to match. I also used to wear white mascara.

When someone wears clothing or makeup that shows class, I don't care how wild it is. In my lifetime, I think I've seen most of what can be done.

When someone wears clothing or makeup that shows no class, I recognize it for what it is; a person with no class who is just trying to draw attention to themselves. To that type of person, even negative attention is better than no attention.

Having class isn't a generational thing. It's something that fits all generations and times. People with no class have been the same type of person since Ug and Mrs. Ug lived at cave street in Dinotown.

Those two 11 year old girls from New Zealand, just posted, who want recipes for their cookbook, with proceeds to be given to a charity of their choice! They want regional dishes from all over the world, with the sender giving the location.

Sometimes I smile just because. Although, having a wonderful new daughter probably helps.

I guess I am jaded.

When I see things like that I smile and then I picture Peggy in Customer Service from the television commercial.

Sorry ladies, no offense intended.

That commercial cracks me up! When that dude says "Hi, my name is Peggy", I lose it every time! What a hoot!
