From the Guardian Weekend magazine, Saturday March 12 2005:
Here, we “civilians” are privileged to observe the precise moment when “shorts with tights” went out of fashion, i.e. somewhere between the article on the left (“The Street, C’est Chic”) and the What’s In/What’s Out barometer on the right (“The Measure”).
Go on, admit it. You didn’t know they had ever been in fashion in the first place, did you?
Actually, all of this is hysterical displacement activity on my part, to distract myself from the burst pipe downstairs. Our lovely beech parquet floor: ruined! The emergency plumber gets here within the hour. Oh, and the scanner has just decided to go wrong as well. And it’s only 9:00 on Monday morning. This is going to be one of those weeks, isn’t it? Can I have my Bloggie now please?
