I need to clarify something from my previous post about the people I saw in their thongs. LOL. Now when I lived in Canada we called them flipflops. Which I would still call them that except for the fact that when I met Chris and all my American friends on the west coast they made fun of me and said they were called Thongs not flipflops. So eventually I gave into peer pressure and went with calling them thongs. Now I am living on the east coast and finding that people here actually call them flipflops. LOL. I am SO confused. I guess what I am trying to say is that I was referring to flipflops/thongs/sandals WHATEVER you want to call them. LOL I did not see a bunch of people on the subway in their underwear. It would have been funny though!!

That is SO funny! We all call them thongs here, yet when I posted about it (http://queeniecarly.typepad.com/with_a_turn_and_a_twist_s/2006/06/file_under_misc.html) it turned into somewhat of a heated argument and great debate. As far as I'm concerned, they're thongs. End of story.

I grew up with them being thongs too and the underwear were called g-strings. NOW they have switched it all up on us!! I too am confused!

I called them thongs when I was a kid. Then I'm sure I called them flip flops at some point. Now I call them sandles.

Thongs = Panties not g-strings
G-string = something on my guitar

I call them flip flops and always have, especially since hearing now since hearing Rosie O'Donnell talking abbut "thongs" (underwear) all the time. The same thing goes for tissues aka "Kleenex". Having lived on the East Coast of Canada, then Central Canada (Ontario), and then the West Coast, I'm not sure anymore who calls it tissues and who calls it Kleenex. I think that "Kleenex" is a stupid thing to call a tissue, since it might be "scotties". Get my drift? It really depends on where you live. I think I'll stick with calling it "flip flops" and "tissues."

Actually Mr.Jolliffe... when I was ordering form LaSenza online they have G-strings, V-strings, T-strings and thongs. I actually had to call the store and ask what the heck the difference in all those underwear were!!!
