At the gym this morning, I got on an elliptical in a different area than normal ('Cause some skank was on my regular one. Don't she know?) and was therefore subjected to a different TV screen than normal. Even though I listen to my iPod, I'm generally looking at the TVs because, let's face it, what else is there to look at at 6:00 am? I was chugging along and all the sudden these muppet-like creatures pop up on the screen with what appear to be two stainless steel mixing bowls hinged together for heads and two ping-pong balls for eyes. Now I can only assume they were part of some music segment on the show because they were doing all these crazy early 90's dances like the running man and the cabbage patch. I think I now know who to blame for the ridiculous London fashion trend where virtually grown women dress like 80's/90's club rats. Stupid off-the-shoulder tees down to their knees strapped at the hips with glittery belts. Positively wretched gold sequin stretchy headbands with matching gold sequin sneakers in broad daylight. Heinous neon stretchy mini skirts with leggings. (Related topic: Check out my updated "I'm Wearing" section in the sidebar) The Hoobs. Blast you. This was a bit much to take in at 6:00 am.
From the website:
