A geeky girl living in the big city, making her way, the only way she knows how... no wait, that's The Dukes of Hazzard. Who am I again? Oh yeah, a pop culture obsessed writer, publishing person, and occasional nerd. And I'm getting married. I talk about that, too.

Guys, look away

This here's a post for the girls.

*pauses, waits a moment*

Ok, are they gone? Good. I wanted to talk for a moment here about stockings, because this morning, in a rampant fit of "but I don't want to wear pantyhose!" I put on my garter belt and stockings. Now, the only stockings I have are actually seamed ones from Victoria's Secret, from when I used to go to a lot more swing clubs and out dancing, and wanted to look and feel authentic, but still, something about the fact that underneath my rather boring khaki skirt I'm wearing black seamed stockings, and can feel the strappy straps of my garter belt against my thighs...

Well, I just feel damn sexy. And I wanted to share.

Victoria's Secret is having their semi-annual sale right now, and I'm tempted to stock up on a few more pairs of stockings for more everyday use. That, and some long underwear for my mountain adventures to come -- not to be worn together.

And now back to your regularly scheduled blog.

Oh, I hear you, sister.

The way those garters feel, and then, when I add in the ben-wa balls...ooo! Girl, turn the firehose on me, 'cos I'm en fuego!

Heh...that was fun to write. Now to delete it 'afore anyone sees it and calls CPS...

Now if only you could have fishnets and be a hero, too (unless you've exploited the costuming glitch ...)


Oh, wait -- you're talking real life?

I can't decide which thought I like better -- the stockings/garterbelt thing (which... hot damn), or the swing-dancing thing (which... godthatsoundfunit'sbeensolong!)

Now I am wondering what I have missed out on by not having worn stockings - curse you!

I am right there with you on the pantyhose being evil. Those have to be a man invention because um...damned uncomfortable and don't even get me started about how easily they snag.

According to the USPTO it would be Allen Gant Sr. who invented pantyhose for Glen Raven Mills in North Carolina in I think 1959, they patented a seamless version in 1965 to go along with the just becoming popular miniskirt if I remember my fashion history correctly.

Aaron, why do you know so much about pantyhose?

I didn't read that post, by the way. Really.
