partially in response to Crazy Lady's comment on my "bah, humbug" post (see two entries below), but also a manifesto of how awesome i know that legwarmers are. for pretty much any occasion.
i am a child of the 80's, and i fell in love with legwarmers as a child. consequently i wore them throughout my life, both to ballet class and outside of it.
in fact, i even have photographic proof from high school, 2002, when they were most decidedly NOT COOL.
i didn't care then, and i don't care now.
i did a very large, expansive happy dance when they came back in fashion!
and when they go back out...
i'm still gonna wear them.
legwarmers are also very handy when you're dancing. dance of all kinds, that is. alas, my ballet days are over, but they're perfect for days like today, when i was at work, freezing my ass off because it's cold out and management can't figure out the fucking thermostat...
ahem. anyhow. it was blazing hot on the stage (there is a heating vent up there, i just know it) and freezing everywhere on the floor, except for the one golden spot: we have a gas fireplace. consequently, me in my small dress and legwarmers was stationed there for 90% of my stay at work. because goose bumps, are not so much The Sexy.
also, for those who may be interested, i updated the "Bah, humbug" post with pictures of the UV pole(s) i mentioned at the end there, because they are all kinds of awesome, and i do have the pictures...
