Discount Shopping

Oh the wonderful treasures you find while shopping at bargain basement stores. I got one of my favorite shirts from Century 21 for like 25 bucks! I usually try to avoid discount stores, simply because I don't have the patience to weed through all the racks of shit to find the one thing that I like and then realize it only comes in XXL.

But I was pleasantly surprised during my last trip to one of those types of stores. Who knew TJ Maxx was so tapped in to the gay consumer. They have something to offer everyone... at low low prices!

I'm actually surprised there's anything on the right side of the rack. Seems like there's always a surplus of active bottoms, but it's impossible to find an active top. Now I wouldn't mind finding one of those in XXL. Thank you TJ Maxx!

Toys for Tots

The annual Toys for Tots event is happening this evening at the Metropolitan Pavillion. I've actually never been, even though I've had the intention of going. I think it always has something to do with it being on a Sunday and I have to bring a toy -- it's just an extra step along the way and I'm pretty lazy. But apparently it's this big gay "to do" and this year's event sold out at a capacity of 2,000 people.

It's funny, though, because I didn't realize that Toys for Tots is a program of the US Marine Corps. Am I the only one who finds that a bit funny? I guess it's all about the kids and whatnot, but it's still a bit odd that the Marines are more than happy to take our money and donations, but they just won't let us join up. Granted, I don't give a shit because the last thing I want to do is be in the Army (ok, Marines... there's a difference, I'm told), but it's still a bit odd.

It's really not that big of a deal, but I'm just sayin'...

Holy Spandex, Batman!

So I have this bad habit of taking pictures of people who are horribly dressed in public with my camera phone. It's kind of a hobby, actually. Well, at the very least the challenge of taking someone's picture without them knowing it entertains me. My friends usually aren't amused, though, since I shamelessly go after them once I spot something trifling.

By the way, the picture quality kinda sucks because I switched to an iPhone and, well, nothing's perfect.

Anyway, it seems that tights are making a comeback amongst the fashionably challenged:

And for the fashionably impaired, a trip to the movies is apparently cause to break out the purple tights, and round out the eyesore outfit with a Patricia Field Cadillac handbag:

You would think that people in the city would be able to dress themselves better, but I guess that's a faulty assumption. Although, maybe they think they're being stylish, which is entirely plausible. However, they're failing miserably at it.
