More Serial Killers.....

on Biography. This one is a French serial killer by the name of Michael Fourniret. You can watch me on this show as an expert tonight, Friday, December 18 @ 8 pm ET on the Biography channel. Here is a description of the show:

He's known worldwide as the "Ogre of the Ardennes." Frenchman Michel Fourniret's exploits terrorized Europe in the 1980s and '90s as he kidnapped, raped and murdered nine young women in a reign of terror across France and Belgium. When he attempted to kidnap his 10th victim, his wife refused to conceal his sickness any longer. She went to authorities. Fourniret was arrested, convicted and sentenced to life in prison where he remains today.

What's wrong with Christmas sweaters?

Whenever I read about fashion (which is rare as I don't really care, unless I have to dress up for work), I see tips like this one made by Amy Alkon:

Avoid Christmas sweaters at all cost. If you have one, burn it, so you can ensure that you will never be drunk enough to put it on. Oh, sorry -- considering what they're usually made of, make that "melt it in a well-ventilated area."

Okay, I can understand not wanting to wear a Christmas sweater like this onebut is this one so bad? I think it is festive and nice. I admit having given something similar to someone for a gift years ago. Am I a bad person for doing so? Yes, according to Manolo, the shoe blogger, who says:

So, listen to the advice of the Manolo, and make this the season of joy by giving your holiday sweaters to the garbage man.

Do you wear Christmas clothing--sweaters, sweatshirts etc.? Or, do you consider it a fashion faux pas like so many others?
