Die a Peaceful Death

26 Aug

So, I know there are all things that we wish would just fall out of popularity and do so quietly.  I’m taking this opportunity to point out to you all the things that I wish would just go away.  Here they are in no particular order:

Harem Pants


Ladies, looking like you’re carrying poo in your pants is never a good look.  Please, let’s allow this look to die with MC Hammer.

American Idol


I was a huge fan of Idol and watched it every Tuesday and Wednesday, but Simon is leaving, Paula is gone and there is nothing left but Randy and some coke cups.  I love Ryan too, but he can’t carry it alone.  (P.S. What the hell is going on with Paula and Randy in that picture up there??)



Just no.  Unless you’re dressing up for a Halloween party.



Enough said.

Heidi and Spencer


They’re fighting with Lauren, married, having plastic surgery and now divorced.  Who cares.  Please go away.

Celebrity Gossip


I’m tired of it.  We’re all so well-versed in who is currently dating or breaking up, but yet we have no idea what’s going on in the world.  Here’s to learning what’s important (although I would read Michael K of D-Listed regardless of what he’s talking about.  That guy is hilarious).

The wedding aisle at {insert craft store here}


There are so many cute things at these stores, but yet none of them seem to be located on the wedding aisle.  That section is loaded with items you might gather to embarrass a bride at her bachelorette party, but that’s about it.

What are some things you wish would just go away?

    Great list! Those harem pants, sigh. I don’t know how they can possibly be flattering in any way, shape or form.

    i agree with every one of these. and i guess it shows how lame i am that i didn’t even know that harem pants were experiencing some kind of sad rebirth.

      Yes, unfortunately they are/were. But I’m hoping they’ll go away as quickly as they came back.

    Things I wish would die a peaceful death: 3 o’clock consults, Snuggies, Ed Hardy shirts, Skechers shape ups, and vuvuzelas. Actually, I’m on the fence about Snuggies.
