The term pump for a high heeled shoe first popped up in 1550 in England, where male servants sported the style. It is said that the noise they made while wearing the loose-fitting shoes resembled the sound of a water pump. The word sneaker entered the language in the 1870s; the rubber soles made the shoes quiet and therefore"sneaky". The modern usage of stiletto, a Renaissance-era Italian word for an assassin's narrow-blade knife, made its debut is 1953. The word turned out to be especially appropriate, because the shoes's pointy heels were murder on floors.

That's interesting I always wondered why they were called pumps.
The other day I found out why the Periodic table in Science was called that!It was such a relief to know why... I had never thought about it before!

Oh man, I think there was some sort of marathon of that show (or something similar) that I watched on New Year's Eve in Germany a few years ago. How bizarre! Well, it was actually on British cable TV, but still! Why does anyone want to watch a bunch of random 70s acts in a row? Well, probably for the most amazing and outlandish clothing ever! That was pretty fantastic. I don't know why we watched it or why it was on, but we couldn't turn away. It was pretty entertaining.

Disco isn't dead, it's just really really retro

Ny first thought on seeing that clip was about how much a b**** gold lame fabric is to work with.

Given that, I think it's safe to assume that I don't have much of a "groove thing" myself. :)

And, much love to Dionne Warwick, but I don't usually associate her with groove things. With great Burt Bacharach music, yes, but not with the groove so much.

lol! What an odd phrase. I guess I'd want a little more clarification about why an acting instructor would see me with a stiletto in my hand. lol..

Stiletto, n. (stil^et^o) Heel capable of making most men stare, when odds are, they probably shouldn't be.

Or maybe I'm speaking a bit too much for me.

LOL, it's so true. Stiletto's are freakin' hot. They hurt like hell, but they're totally worth it.
