Electronics is always too busy but nothing like a gaggle of women rushing to grab shoes in a blink of an eye.
I'd be there...shoving, elbowing, knocking people over. Very ladylike...and of course I'd have awesome shopping shoes on during all this.

I hate shopping and I hate crowds. I have never in my life gone shopping on Black Friday and I never plan to. Sometimes I'll go to the mall because I need something, but if there's too many people I just leave. Not worth it.

I just have higher priorities than "stuff".

I own about 200 pairs of heels. When I wear them they make me feel more sexy and confident. It's a mental thing.

They are on sale!!

I love heels. They hurt my feet because of the terrible shape of my feet, but I love how heels look.

I typically never wear heels because they kill my feet. However that doesn't stop me from loving how they look, buying a few pairs, and wishing I could wear some others. Like for example, right now I am considering cutting up all my credit and bank cards so I won't buy these in medium pink and white. I have no idea what I'd wear them with or where I'd wear them. Plus I guarantee you I would want to take them off within 10 minutes. But I still WANT them!

Why do men wear pants that droop off their backsides?
This is actually a prison tradition. Men sag their pants in prison to advertise their availability as a bottom in a relationship.

I inform all of my MS boys of this.

This is said to be false at least in terms of the actual origin of sagging. Perhaps it has grown to symbolize this.

I have read and heard from numerous sources that it most likely developed in the prisons due to ill-fitting pants (both because sizing is not really a priority and because there are no belts allowed).

This is what I've heard as well. Snopes agrees: http://tinyurl.com/26262z

Thanks for the link! That whole "sex availability" thing ALWAYS seemed like an urban legend to me, but I never looked into it.

I'm not talking rapper style...I was thinking more along the lines of 'plumber' pants...and I'd hazard a guess that it's about men with tummies feeling more comfortable in bigger jeans.
