Greetings, and welcome to another edition of WTF Wednesday. As I was surfing Memorial Day sales, I noticed a disturbing trend: the Maxi Romper. At first, I thought “isn’t that called a jumpsuit?” But alas, no. It’s a romper with a long skirt. WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY. Rompers are not the devil, unless they… Read More WTF Wednesday: Maxi Rompers
I know it’s not Wednesday. I’m not completely out of touch with reality. But this week has been very busy at work, and yesterday after sitting through a 2-hour family law trial prep session, the only WTF I could come up with is “why do people even get married?” This week’s WTF-ery may be somewhat… Read More WTF Wednesday: It Was All Yellow

But if you need… Read More WTF Wednesday: Two Great Tastes That Should Stay Far, Far Apart
I had another post planned for this week, but then, someone posted the video from Miss Congeniality about April 25th being the perfect date, and well, I changed my mind. Today actually was a jacket kind of day, if you wear jackets. I personally do not like them, so I wore a sweater, and I probably… Read More WTF Wednesday: You May Need a Light Jacket, but Not These
