Clothes maketh the woman

20120606-182335.jpgHave you been getting down about the Lingerie Football League?

Me and T-freaking-gazi have been, but it’s going to be okay. Because – you know and I know that sportswomen have a lot to offer the world, and what we need to do to address the ridiculous, regressive, sexist and painful world that is Lingerie Football League is not give it any more air time. Get lost LFL, I am moving on. I won’t buy you, I won’t watch you, and I’ll just de-friend people on facebook who think it’s ironic. Ironic is RuPaul’s Drag Race. This is just lame.


Instead, go out, find a lady sports person you admire and then deliver to their home with a sweet note a SURPRISE NEW CYCLING JERSEY that is so beyond respectable it’s like she won’t even want to take it off. Like what just happened to me.

Seriously, I came home and on my door is A GIFT OF STRIPES. Don’t stop rocking baby. Cafe du Cycliste. Between you and the LULULEMON KIT (Hello! GOOGLE ALERT – I WANT TO BUY THE LADIES KIT FROM LULULEMON) I will be riding pretty.

Stay strong ladies, I know that you ride your own races.

Hey, want to join a friendly low key single speedy casual ride with nil organisation except a random facebook page called The Steel Magnolias? Because I DESPERATELY want to have this page be in existence. Wait, let me check. Dang. The Wheel Magnolias?

  1. I’d just like to point out that while wandering through the revamped Carindale shopping centre last night I stumbled across a Lululemon store, on the ground floor near Myers.

    You know, for those bloggers who have a Lululemon crush that needs fulfilling.

    1. Hehheh, but I WORRY that the actual cycling kit is not there yet, sadly, I have been following actual nerdy discussions on this very topic. As for LLMN, I have been to Carindale and – well – it was a helluva trip. But thank you for looking out for me! I will be on it like a rash when they bring that kit out.
