With the time to wear all of those
summer styles fading fast, it is a
must to recap the season's hottest
trends in order to make the best of
the finale of summer sunshine.

on to not have picked up on some
of the major fads. Talk about trend-
Hollywood always influences the
fashion and with the release of the
'Charlie's Angels' movie last year,
aviator sunglasses have found their
way back into the limelight. You
choose the color; they're a sure way
to spice up any outfit. And they are
not just for kids-parents are trying
out this one too.
Even basic tank tops are being cut
to show off the ever-desired tan
midriff. Add to that a pair of chunky
flip-flops (how high can they go?),
and you are almost set!
Don't forget your fatigues. Be it a
belt or an army print tee or tank,

there any celebrity in general'?
R: Probably Brad Pitt.
TMD: Any reason?

TMD: On a more serious note,
someone like your grandchild asks
you where you were on Tuesday
September -11, 2001, when you
heard the big news, will you have
a good story ?
R: Not really I will probably tell
them that I didn't hear about it
until 11:30 and was shocked in the
middle of my Spanish class.
TMD: One final question. Do you
know what the word felching
R: Can you repeat it?
