Tuesday Open Thread

March 19, 2013

Happy Tuesday!

In the news: public support for gay marriage is at an all-time high, according to a Washington Post poll. Among young adults age 18 to 29, support is at a whopping 81 percent. As Whitney once sang, I believe the children are our future…  😀

Brace yourself: there’s a shortage of Lululemon yoga pants!

Apparently due to a problem at the factory, there is “a level of sheerness in some of our women’s black Luon bottoms that falls short of our very high standards,” the company said today.

Excessively see-through yoga pants! We have a situation on our hands here. Lululemon says the problem affects about 17% of all the ladies pants in its stores, and that’s a problem for a yoga pants company in a land where nude yoga has yet to take off: Lululemon stock fell 3.8% today and is down another 5.2% in after-hours trading.

In all seriousness, have you ever tried Lululemon pants? I know they have quite the cult following but I have yet to buy a pair. They’re way expensive, so they’d better make every a$$ look phenomenal. Just saying.

Lastly, when do your kids’ schools have Spring Break? I assumed most were off in the week leading up to Easter, but am surprised to see lots of people on facebook already in the midst of Spring Break. Around here, it lasts two weeks: leading up to Easter, and the week after. Apparently the district is looking at cutting it back to just one week next year and then letting the kids out of school one week earlier. We’re usually out in mid to late June

What else is on your mind today? Chat away!
