An article came into my inbox, and it lead me to different places on the web. Even though the pages are mostly about leggings and nothing covering them, I recommend that you read on, because there are some photos on the pages, and because we could learn from them about trends, and because you can see my response to 1 of them.

My uncle mentioned that an Asian singer got her legs severely burned, due to an explosion while she wore stockings.
He also revealed that there were "minor burns" on his daughter's face though the majority of her serious burns were on her legs as she was wearing stockings, a particularly combustible article of clothing, when the accident happened on Friday.
"She is just very tired after the operation. We should let her rest as much as possible and get better. It will take two to three weeks for her to recover from this operation," said Ho, adding that the main concern now is to make sure Jen's wounds do not become infected.
This is just the first of many hurdles for Jen on her road to recovery, which observers say may take up to two years.
My uncle also said that China is discouraging women from wearing stockings, because they are unsafe. I have not found any article about that. This accident and the consequences are not going to stop me from wearing. It is good to know, though.

On Tuesday, A new ESL student told me that she gave her ex-boyfriend hosiery to keep warm, and neither of them had problems with it. I think that this is news, because it shows that lots of people are not just beyond the whole issue: they are wondering what the whole fuss is. Of course, the ex-boyfriend never wore it under shorts, but the fact that she so easily turned to hosiery shows that they have no problems with it.
Discussing the issue with her was a great way to advance our cause.

I went to do volunteer work, as an ESL tutor, on Tuesday. My favourite student wears hosiery. I gave her a chance to ask me questions. She ended up asking me if I was wearing leggings. In other words, she never bothered to look at my legs, when I walked by a couch, where she was sitting. I thought that it was amazing that she never bothered to look at my legs. It just goes to show that you are not always going to be noticed, even though you are wearing opaques.
Bear in mind, that she was not asking about actual leggings, but just hosiery in general. At least, that is what I think.

I got a coupon from Lulu.com, yesterday.

I think that I have been a little hard on hosiery men for not looking proper in their photos. I still stand by my statements, but I want to be a bit more positive, by focusing on 2 guys who seem to have pulled it off almost flawlessly. Keep reading for more information.

1 bit of great news is that I did get to wear grey opaque hosiery in front of the camera. 2 bits of bad news are that I was so close to the camera, that you probably would not have seen me wearing hosiery, and that I did not get to wear hosiery for the second and final scene that I did. 2 bits of good news are that lots of people saw me wear it, and that I spoke to 3 people about it. Read the remainder of the blog entry for the details on those events, plus information on a couple of things that I learned.

I found some nice photos of women. They are fully clothed, except for 1 photo, of a woman in a bikini. Many of the photos show the women immodestly wearing short skirts. Overall, though, they show that you can look nice and attractive, while keeping yourself fully clothed. It is a good lesson for the women, but men should really take notes.

I made a page, that lists many web sites where you can buy colourful hosiery. I have not tried those sites, other than footraffic.com.
For colourful hosiery, there are so many standards on what people are willing to accept, therefore, I will not review or check the quality of those products. It is different from the opaque hosiery, because we are looking for the most opaque, in a good length, and in a local store. We might want the opaquest to be matte or shimmery, but there is not a lot of flexibility.

I am on the lookout for the opaquest hosiery on the market. Therefore, I created a page for what I think are the recommended brands and the recommended places to get them. Bear in mind, though, that I have not evaluated every single brand and style, so a missing brand does not necessarily mean that I do not recommend it.

- I found out that my brother does not want his kids to see me wear hosiery.
- I found another supportive woman.
- Somebody told me about Japanese guys wearing hosiery.

Check out the video and story of an East London man wore pink tights and other women's clothing so that he could raise awareness for breast cancer. I had made the suggestion to people that guys should wear pink hosiery for the same reason. It would gain a bit more respect for us.

Leggings are not that exciting to me, but I thought that this might be worth blogging about. Some people put on a promotional event, where HUE leggings were a big part of the costumes. Be sure to check out the rest of the site. It is not HUE's official site, but it is worth checking out, anyways.

Just when I thought that I knew a lot, along comes a great tutorial to teach me a thing or 2: How To Dry Pantyhose in a Hurry. I cannot remember if I heard of this idea before, but I definitely want to make sure that I will not forget it.

I have been told that Japanese guys commonly wear hosiery and shorts. I have never seen this with my own eyes. I suppose that it is because I have never been to Japan, but you would think that it would be easy to find photos of guys wearing shorts and hosiery. The only photo that I could find, via Yahoo! and Google, was this photo.
Have any of you seen guys in Japan [or even guys who look like they could be Japanese] wear hosiery and shorts?

On October 12, 2010, Tuesday afternoon, I was standing near a shopping mall, test marketing my new book. I spoke to a guy about it, and he mentioned that he wanted to try wearing hosiery with shorts. Maybe we will see a new person in the community.

David Kelly will take charge of the new Wonder Woman show. The article speculates on a few actresses taking the lead. I prefer Megan Fox, because she has the same glamour, that Diana Carter had, and because I think that she is the most beautiful of the candidates. I would not be surprised if the 2 of them had the same acting skills. I think that Angelina Jolie should just stick to movies.
I felt that this was of interest to us, because the article mentions tights, and that she is probably going to get a different outfit. I think that the outfit should involve athletic apparel, because it is stretchy like old school hero costumes, but it is more modern.

It was good to have support from a couple of family members. The rest were uncomfortable. I think that I might wear shorts and hosiery at the next family gathering.
I am grateful that my uncle took the book off of my hands. It means that I have only 1 more book on my hands. Also, I appreciate his support. He got me to autograph it.
It was interesting to see them look at the photos and a few pages here and there.
I just realized that I will not share many experiences for the next month or 2, because I will not be going out much. I just wanted to pass this on to you, because many of you regulars probably come here expecting to read about my experiences. I actually intended to blog about interacting with people, but I will not be able to any of that, because I have been quite busy lately, doing other things.

Just this past Thursday, on Facebook, I announced that the public library bought 2 copies of my book, and then my aunt commented on it, and said that I must bring it to the Thanksgiving family gathering. I said that I would. I am a bit nervous about it, because I think that I might not explain very well why I wear hosiery. Telling my extended family is a big step for me. I should be okay. I will tell you what happens on Monday.

I have been mentioning my hosiery advocacy on Craig's List, and I am glad that there have been positive responses.
Welcome, all Craig's List visitors, and visitors from other places. I really hope that you find something meaningful here, and I hope that there was no misunderstanding.
I found an old online local daily newspaper article about men wearing hosiery. http://www.canada.com/vancouversun/news/story.html?id=cdcbffb0-6873-42dd-b484-4275ddc5863e&k=48343 I decided to share a bit about myself, and leave a comment.

I saw some the other day, inside their store, as I passed by in downtown Vancouver. I also saw a banner ad. This is good news for those who still want to buy from American Apparel.
Bear in mind that colourful Hue hosiery is being sold in The Bay [i.e. department store], this season, and I bet that their hosiery is much cheaper. Also bear in mind that Hue probably does not have the same worker complaints that American Apparel does.

This means that 2 libraries are willing to take a few copies off of my hands, and that 2 libraries are interested in the topic of men in hosiery and shorts. Keep reading for the details.
