Will someone kindly explain to me why they cannot make tights at Lane Bryant in more than two sizes? Their tights are awesome. They don't itch, they're really opaque, and you can wash and dry them with few to no adverse consequences. They never get runs. However, they come in two sizes: A/B, for short, somewhat pudgy folks, and C/D, for tall, really fat folks. There is no interim size. Clearly, being 5'9", I am not going to be buying anything that says 5'0" to 5'5", because then the crotch would be somewhere around mid-thigh. However, having purchased the larger size (which formerly fit perfectly, eek)…they are too large, and are falling down, leaving—you guessed it—the crotch at mid-thigh.
Speaking of thighs, I really did a number on mine yesterday at the gym. I must have really been overly enthusiastic on that inner-thigh machine (I think it's called Hip Adduction, or something-it's the one that looks like it belongs in your gyno's office, anyway), because today, they are most painful.
Since we're discussing the gym, why is it that when I actually NEED some new t-shirts, I can't find any? Seriously. I have some, but with my new "gym every morning and sometimes at night, too" plan, I need more. Most of mine came from Old Navy, Target, or an ex-boyfriend. They're pretty much men's t-shirts, because those are longer (gotta cover that ass), cheaper, and hold up better to repeated washings in hot water. Well, for some reason, now that I NEED them, they are all SHORT. Even the gigantic ones. Plus, they are way expensive. I finally scrounged two at Old Navy, but they're still not quite long enough, and I paid more than I planned to.
Finally, a nice little survey, because they're fun and I'm bored. Thanks, pajamamama!

Thank twobaddogs for today's time-waster. And probably tomorrow's, and the next days. Feel free to contribute these anytime...most of them come from my sick and wrong friends and/or random Googling.
