Given Up

i was recently talking with Kurt about which movie to go see (we still haven't decided) when it came up that i was lying on the couch. He replied that he was lying on his couch as well, protecting his winter fat.
In response to this, i mentioned that i had gotten so fat this winter, my pants didn't fit anymore. i told him that i had decided to start buying those old lady pants that have the elastic waste bands.
Kurt then asked, "Why don't you just give up, and wear sweat pants?"

i laughed so hard remembering this Seinfeld Episode, i had to talk about it!!!!

JERRY: (to George) Again with the sweat pants?

GEORGE: What? I'm comfortable.

JERRY: You know the message you're sending out to the world with these sweat pants? You're telling the world: "I give up. I can't compete in normal society. I'm miserable, so I might as well be comfortable." (George is baffled)

But seriously. I'm sure everyone has seen that episode. Why do people still wear sweat pants around instead of regular pants? And why do they still wear that crappy gray jersey color?
I've seen now with girls - they buy sweat suits made of pink velour and wear them all over the place. Do you know what following this new trend is leading to? They will be those grannies that buy matching nylon sweat suits! my granny had a TON of them.

So there it is. I just don't know why people wear that crap around. Seriously. It's not stylish. It's not attractive. And if you ever watch What Not To Wear, Stacey and Clinton would tell you to throw that crap away, and get into a great pair of jeans and some pointy heels!!!

I don't care what you say Cas. When a woman wears those gray colored sweatpants with the waistband rolled down, especially if the sweats are cut-off, it looks sexy.

` Once, I rapidly gained thirty pounds - and lost it in two weeks - due to medication issues.
` My solution was stretchy jeans and corduroy. At least they qualify as 'real' clothing.

` And you know what's weird? I've never been able to watch more than two minutes of Seinfeld. In fact, I don't know anyone who's been able to, either!

I have enjoyed Seinfeld many evenings long ago as well Quine, so now you know two people.
Cassie I think sweatsuits look ok at long as you add puffy paint and have matching keds.

locomocos said...

yeah. i think you're right. you really have to dress those sweat suits up a bit. maybe with some loud animal prints and geometric shapes. rhindstones IN the puffy paint!

Does your grammy wear those as well? Do ALL grammies? Do the ALL wear Keds?
i think my grammy used to go to Wal-Mart and get immitation Keds. They had a blue label on the back of the shoe, but you could peal it off really easy. She kept buying pairs for me well into high school.
Don't you remember me wearing them to that Cure concert?

Amber said...

Ha, I guess I choose to remember you at least wearing converse or something! sheesh!
I don't know if my grandma wears those, but in middle school the gym teacher-Mrs. G- did, she had rhinestone coordinated gym outfits. It was all the glamour of teaching phys. ed. adolescents you know.

I still buy my grandma those aweful matching tracksuit for Christmas. Its a easy I-know-she-will-love present. And.. she wears the imitation Keds too.

Aaron said...

I'm with you Spoony. I could not stand to watch seinfeld for more than 2 minutes either. I never even liked his stand-up routine. It's just something about me and new york jews I guess.

Amber said...

Is this about NY again??!

Aaron said...

seinfeld could've lived in green bay wisconsin for all I care. I just can't stand to listen to the guy for more than a sentence.

I can't stand that 'curb your enthusiasm' show either. That larry david guy it a total douchebag.

How did he end up with that hottie wife anyway?

Anonymous said...

I also love Seinfeld, but didn't get into it until reruns. I remember George also saying he would love to drape himself in velvet. So, what about a velvet sweatsuit? Luxury!!


Laura said...

Never a big fan of sweat pants unless I'm going to bed but you can all just go straight to hell if you are making fun of puff paint!! That stuff was COOL! I used to put it all over my jeans and my shoes when I was in middle school! I was totally AWESOME!

locomocos said...

i think i had a peace symbol on a jean jacket made out of puffy paint when i was in 5th grade. i thought i was SO COOL.

Amber said...

Did you wear your Bart Simpson shirt with that?
