In Which A Nerd Attempts to Discuss Fashion

Warning: May use sarcasm! If you are easily offended by my weirdness, consider abstaining from reading the following post...

Weird Fads
Call me a nerd, but I really don't get it. I'm not sure which is worse - the obsession with men's facial hair, or the obsession with curly strips of meat.

Facial Hair...

Look, duct tape even comes in a mustache design!

Or, curly strips of meat.

Look, there's even bacon duct tape!

Help! If you are part of these fads, please explain to me why they are so amazing! (and please don't just say, "Because they're awesome!"... even if you believe they are...)

As an aside, the Paris fad is becoming insane. In my defense, however, I was interested in Paris before it became a fad... and I'm kinda sad that it's a fad, since that means it might fade after a while! *sniffle* Oh well; I'll survive. {Btw: I'm in favor of the owl fad. Owls are cute and colorful. Owls look at you and seem to be smiling. Or they seem to be angry. Either way, they're interesting, and can be used in all manner of products, such as jewelry, notebooks, and scarves. However, a BACON scarf? I don't know... I just don't get it. Maybe I'm just too particular}.



  1. Haha! I get your point.
    Now I feel weird.. I am attracted to men's facial hair? Honestly I think mustaches on a man looks gross.. So I am questioning why I love mustaches so much... I think its just a personal feeling.
    I am obsessed with mustaches.
    Does that mean I like facial hair.
    Eww.. No!
    I think a lot of people don't look at it as facial hair. They look at it as a cute mustache that doesn't look real.
    As for the bacon.
    Who doesn't like bacon? Besides vegetarians and people who don't like bacon.
    After reading this post I am questioning my own fashion sense... Haha! :)

    1. Hey Kayla!!! Thanks so much for the comment! :) Okay, I kinda get your point... you have inspired me to develop a new hypothesis! Maybe, when people look at mustaches, they see cute, cartoon mustaches. They don't think of fuzzy hair on the upper lip of a random guy... sorta like when someone looks at a yellow smiley face sticker, they think, "oh, it's a cute yellow smiley face sticker!" instead of that smiley face actually making them think of a physical person smiling, if that makes sense... LOL
      Anyway, thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. I don't get the bacon fad, but I just think mustaches are cute and funny looking! Haha! That's basically it :D pretty crazy right? Lol I have the mustache duct tape...

    1. Okay, I admit that I am more positively inclined to like mustaches than bacon... {the mustache duct tape is cute too!!! Maybe it's the black and white combo that I like... Idk.}

  3. I'll agree, the bacon fad is a little bit weird. Just because I eat it for breakfast occasionally doesn't mean I want it on my duck-tape.
    However, I do sorta like the mustaches. I think because it's out of style that's bringing it back in again. If you understand my crazy wording. ;)

    1. Haha! Same here!!!
      Ooh, I see what you mean there. A very interesting hypothesis. Me gusta!

  4. From Riversbend:
    I totally agree with you! I just do not get it! My guess is that it gets a lot of people's attention. And for those who are really striving for attention(this is meant to be no offense to anyone), they are sure getting it! As for your Paris liking, I really enjoy Paris as well! For some reason Europe has always been intriguing to me. It is sad to see it become a fad!:( I really like the boxes at Ross though! They are so antiquish.

    1. Ooh, I see what you mean!!! Some of the current fads are really weird, and you kind of wonder if they are just supposed to be attention-grabbers. *sigh*
      I like Europe too! And decorative boxes are really cool, too! :) If I could, I would probably fill up my room with boxes... (and books. And purses.)

  5. I can totally agree with you, Kara. *AWKWARD!* I like eating bacon, but that's about it...

    1. Haha! :) Well, I'm glad you enjoy eating bacon. The bacon popularity has def. worked to my advantage lately... when I was at camp I would give my bacon to people since I didn't really want it! haha

  6. My opinion on the mustache fad is that it's amusing how enamored with facial hair some people have become, but mustaches really aren't all that special. And as for the bacon fad... I have mixed feelings. Bacon is wonderfully delicious (and terrifyingly unhealthy =P), but the obsession with it is going a little too far.

    P.S. Yep, I'm creeping on all your old-ish posts and commenting on them. =P

    1. Yesss! You agree with me on the mustaches!!! :D Yeah, bacon is very yummy... I agree...
      Haha, that's great! You're a cool creeper ;)
