Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
We’re kind of split down the middle when it comes to leggings. Simcha and I love them, and Amelia and Catherine wouldn’t be caught dead in them. But when we saw this leggings-jeans combo from Lee, we all gave a resounding: “Hell, no.” How the Australian division of Lee Jeans describes the Licks line:
“Think leggings, with a zip and a fly. These babies are so slim through the leg that if we hadn’t put a sexy zip in the inseam a normal human girl wouldn’t get them over her foot. They are the ultimate skinny jean — that give you the sleek legging look, with the durability and design features of a jean.”
I’m sorry, but these pants look like a yeast infection waiting to happen. If you’re lucky enough to avoid that, you’ll be embarrassed by the inevitable camel toe. It’s not a hard decision to make: either you want to wear leggings or you want to wear jeans. There’s no need for a combination of the two.

Justin Timberlake is deep in thought while going for a walk in Manhattan. Maybe he’s second-guessing that Mother’s Day duet with Andy Samberg? [NYC, 5/11/09] Keep reading »
Have you ever spent so much money you wanted slap yourself? Well, now you don’t have to! Thanks to a Saudi Arabian court, if a wife spends too much of her man’s dough, he can put her in her place for her. What a savings!
Many of the local men, and now the courts, have been hitting wives hard because of how they choose to use cash. Saudi Arabian women like Princess Adila bint Abdullah, deputy chairperson of the National Family Safety Program, as well as international human rights groups, have complained about the seemingly court-sanctioned spike in
domestic violence justice. If you offer Judge Hamad Al-Razine a penny for his thoughts, he’ll tell you that women are the ones doing the shopping, “but nobody puts even a fraction of blame on them.” The judge argues that men are just reacting to the financial sitch and someone has got to knock some sense into these women, right?
