Leggings and The Handmaid’s Tale

Hello my name is Angie and I have a confession to make, I am having a hard time processing what I am about to tell you, I hope you don’t judge me too harshly, I am addicted to leggings in real life. Not just for exercising, I bought several pair of Spanx leggings and had an awakening, for my legs. I am in love with them, so much so I bought more leggings to wear in real life.

I am in love with the legging life and I don’t think I can go back. Today I wore the cutest brown leggings with a faint pattern with an oversized brown sweater, that had pockets, which was so exciting! With brown boots, of course, how can one not top off, or bottom off, a great pair of leggings with boots.

I decided on the Spanx brand leggings due to the thickness and quality, no, they were not cheap, but in this instance you get what you pay for. Before one gets all judgy on that, I bought all of them on Zulily, so they were deeply discounted.

That is my confession, on to my next subject, while I was in Target Friday, I went to the book section, naturally. There I saw that Margaret Atwood had the sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, The Testament. I was thrilled to see this, I snatched it up and brought it home with me, paying first of course.

I was curious to see where she was going to pick up, the first season of The Handmaid’s Tale on Hulu followed the book almost completely. The next two seasons were wheels off, they were a wild ride, very much keeping in the spirit and theme of the book.

I opened it with some trepidation, excitement and curiosity, how was this going to play out.

Well, I have to tell you Ms. Atwood did not disappoint, she did not pick up right where the last book ended, this one starts roughly 16 years after that.

I will not give anything away, so those that are so inclined can get the book. I highly recommend it, especially if you have read the first book, seeing the series wouldn’t hurt either.

I have to tell you, the scary thing about the first book is that this could actually happen. I do like that she does not give a specific religion that takes control. The major ones are excluded and even hunted down in the book, Baptist, Catholic, Mormon and Jewish people are all encouraged to leave or face execution if they do not assimilate. The ruling faction has bastardized the Bible, it is hardly recognizable. That is what evil people do, they take good and twist it to something unrecognizable and evil.

I also watched You, something else that could totally happen in real life, highly recommend, especially to all young people, male and female. Watch the signs, anyone can be a stalker and obsessive, if the flags are there, don’t ignore them. Run, as fast as you can the opposite direction, remember, once someone shows you who they are, believe them.

That’s all I have for now, a confession and a couple of recommendations.

As usual, any comments, questions, recommendations or criticisms can be left here or sent to me at angie@angieworld.com.

  1. Funny thing, I always saw you as a leggings type person because of your love of boots and oversized winter sweater “dresses”. I am glad you released it to the universe… leg on girlfriend!!
